I've really been jonesing to buy a record player lately. I grew up with one and there are a few in the house I live in now, but I need my own. To all the people with proper setups out there, what are the components I need? Turntable, receiver, speakers? Is that it? When I ask at a store either their eyes glaze over and they look at me like I'm an idiot or go into really specific technical stuff that I can't follow. I know a fair amount about technology, but I've never been a big home audio guy so it's new to me.
I'm looking to get a legit setup, not one of those 90 dollar ones where it's a turntable and speaker unit all in one box that will probably shred my records. Advice is welcome.
