Newbie - Help with Amps and Speakers

I've been looking at getting at turntable for a while now.

I think i've finally decided on the Project Debut III Phono SB, but I'm still not too sure on amps or speakers.

I was having a long look at the Marantz PM6004, but would it be a waste of money buying an amp with a phono stage?

Price range is between £400-£500.

Any help or suggestions welcome.

Thanks Sam

The Marantz is a good amplifier with a good phono stage, i dont know if it's better than the built in one on the debut but if it were me i would get the genie rpm3, much better deck and cheaper, the new debut se 3 looks good with a few upgrades over the older model, i was speaking with a rep from henley designs and he said the new model sounds a lot better than the debut lll but was non commital if it was better than the genie, ehmm, the genie for the money is a terrific deck, as for speakers, room size will play a part and your budget is a tad low for everything, unless you shop around and get a deal.

Good luck and keep us informed on your final choices.
