oh alright, i been texting someone all day about turntables and cartridges since that ad

hey lucskybomba, that set-up sounds awesome. are those your speakers? they're huge!
i wish you lived closer, i'd buy that turntable off ya now. i see a pioneer here in OC on craigslist for $60, which is closer to my price range and i've gotta figure out when i can get out and take a look at that one. apparently, it has its needle and cartridge and doesn't need a pre-amp.
oh and i just bought thrice's vheissu on ebay so i am done with that collection. and i'm going to the thrice show this week.

yeah there are some tables with built-in preamp, forgot about that
and man, i love these speakers. i gave em to my cousin a couple years ago cause they were too big for my new pad. when i moved out again he brought em back (drove them down from oregon!). that bass kicks like a sub!

haha, ya it sounded amazing. that's real nice of your cousin to drive it down to you. there's no way i could have speakers that big, we're pretty pressed for space and i like to keep things minimal, which is why i went ahead and got this:
like i said, it's got a built-in pre-amp so alls i had to do was plug the cord into the aux input of a bose wave stereo that my mother-in-law gave me last month. it doesn't sound as kick ass as your set up but it's quite a step up from my crosley keepsake.
got it for half what it's going for on amazon, too. win.

definitely a step up from the crosley! congrats!

you will notice an even bigger difference once you upgrade those speakers
for a couple days I was running my table through Bose speakers, great sound for small spaces, but no bass.

thats awesome lunchie im jealous, i saw it on your FB. Im gonna be upgrading shortly, i got hooked up on a old receiver, 5 disks cd changer and speakers from my familys cabin that we had to clean out. So i think all i need now is a new table.

is that yours? it looks rad but i think im pretty dead set on getting a pro-ject or rega. But it is tempting to spend a few hundred less.

oh yeah, either the pro-ject or rega would be sweet. mine might be gone by tonight anyway
