I think i'm just gonna stick with my shitty $100 turntable w/10 year old stereo for a while.
Yeah, those audiophile forums are full of old people with tens of thousands of bucks burning a hole in their pockets. My setup at home is a $400 turntable, an $80 preamp, a $30 A-D converter (for "ripping" the records to my PC) and $40 computer speakers. It sounds great, it doesn't cost a metric fuckton and every component is easily upgradable if I get more cash.
