I am just listening to the end of my first LP for 20 years on my new (to me) Debut III, courtesy of Istari Knight. Very nice sound for £100 and handling the vinyl and lowering the tone arm just has something special about it.

The downside is that I know already that it is going to lead to a lot of expenditure down the line, a whole new world of upgrades is opening up before me.

I willtry my hand at a review in a couple of weeks when I am better acquainted.

Cheers BB

Wow, I'm so pleased it's gone to such an appreciative home! That was a great price. Cor, I love vinyl:cs: (goin' soft now).

I hope you don't rush to fast into the upgrade vortex(?!) though, enjoy your records for a bit first!

I'd love to hear one of those Pro-Jects one day......

I attended my 1st record fair about 3 weeks ago, for the Grand total of £10.00 I got a mint second hand Elvis Costello album and 2 Brand new Johnny Cash (Rick Ruben produced) albums. Going to another one in a couple of weeks.

Cheers BB

I would have kept it had my vinyl collection been bigger but unfortunately my Cd collection outnumbers it 10 to 1 !

I got the 1 Expression.

"The downside is that I know already that it is going to lead to a lot of expenditure down the line, a whole new world of upgrades is opening up before me."

Dont go mad.. I only recently bought a Denon DL-160 cart for mine which is a great cart and really opens up the spectrum of sound.......

OOhhhhh "spectrum of sound" - not used that one before !

I bought the Denon whilst pissed upone night otherwise I would never have spent that much on a cart, Glad I did though !! much improvement..

Oh, and I bought a Mitchell clamp of Classikfan but tbh, that aint made any difference to sound, just looks cool !!

Enjoy it !!

i've had cd for about 20 years, and vinyl now about 4,

the vinyl now outweighs cd about 4-1, and i listen to vinyl more than cd. who said cd was the perfect medium? and where else could you troll for hours and get really good 10p bargains other than s/h record shops.

just wish that new releases were cheaper, the prices of new vinyl is a fekking rip off.

James - I am 100-1 at the moment, the reason I wanted a T/T though was that I started to buy CD's of records and tapes I used to have as a teenager but they never sounded as good as I remembered them on vinyl.

Can't wait to reacquaint myself with The Doors.

Cheers BB

Borat I have bought 2 Debuts for friends, lovely lovely decks, in fact until I got the phono stages & cartssorted in my setup, I was seriously wondering what the crack about the LP12 was against this "starter" deck, shows a clean pair of heals to the £400-750 CDP squad to my ears. I was sorely tempted to buy the very deck you now.

Good buy indeed. I think the difference you are hearing even with such a starter deck is the spatial feel to music, sort of knocked my socks off with the LP12, then heard it again from the Debut. Which is nothing short of superb for the price they are sold at.

Nice one BB.

I remember my first T experience. I was lucky enough due to a bonus at work to get a Michell Mycro as my first TT. Had 3 records then, specially bought to go and listen to the deck. I'm now got nearer 1000

I love looking through 2nd hand record shops, trolling eBay for ones and just enjoying the whole vinyl thing, the sound is just a pleasant extra.

You have a cracking little deck there, sit back and enjoy it for a while, no need to do any upgrades right now, just get some decent. The Johnny Cash ones are excellent

Brown Bottle, if you love a bargain get yourself down to a few Boot Fairs this spring/summer. Always pleny of vinyl to be had as folk sell of their entire vinyl collections. Market rate is 50p to £2 per album. Can't go wrong IME, good way to experiment too on sounds you've not heard before and if you like it you can follow it up with a CD purchase.

My missus bought herself a piano black Debut III for £16. She's extremely satisfied with her purchase!

Ry Cooder sounds so much better on vinyl than cd (she said)

The Debut will be a stayer for some time I think, if only to maintain domestic harmony. My current set up is light years from what I had this time last year and it shall be music purchases only in 07.

I was telling a non-hifi friend of mine this morning about my turntable, to which he replied he had 3 or 4 boxes of albums from the 80's that he had been meaning to get rid of for ages. I wonder where they will find a good home.

Nothing like new music purchases to take one's mind off hifi upgrades. You're sounding like one happy dude BB! Enjoy.
