Starting Again

Earlier this year I began to get into vinyl but I had no idea about what a good turntable, amplifier, cartridge etc was so I decided to play it safe and bought everything B&O in the hope that no matter what I bought it would be good quality. I was right and for my first set up I was very happy (Beogram 1700, Beomaster 901 and Beovox S2200 all for about £150).

However I have noticed that my cartridge is now worn and the sound my set up produces is not easy to listen to. I've had this kit for about 6 months and for several reasons I want to build a set up from new . However I still don't know what too look for. I'm hoping someone could offer me some advice and recomendations. I'm not an audiophile but I want my music to sound good and do get annoyed by noticable imperfetions. I'm a student so am not looking to spend much more than £350 and I listen to a wide range from classical to hardcore punk.

I'm looking at either a PROJECT DEBUT III OB or PROJECT ESSENTIAL (good choice?) but am lost with pre-amps, amps and speakers. HELP!

I think the project is a good choice for the money if you don't want to go to secound hand vintage market.

For thr phono pre-amp the best I heard for the moner is the MF VPLS II (120£) beateing CA models costing arround 400£
