    There is of course a way of getting a pretty nice sounding vinyl front end for pocket money.

    Pick up a Bellari VP129 mini valve phono stage and a top vintage ADC cartridge. That little combo will run circles around many MC setups and can possibly be put together for less than £200! So there!!
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    ADC, now there’s a name I haven’t heard in a while, are they still in business? I had an ADC belt drive ‘table when I was 16, with ADC cartridge on it. Many moons ago! I loved that setup, it was impressive for a young man of that age.

    I'm a fan of tube phono stages myself - I've only ever owned one solid state phono stage that could compete on equal terms with a good tube phono stage and that's the Aurorasound Vida. Tubes generally partner really well with step-ups. Adey's advice is spot on. Tons of options.
    Speakers - 'RFC' Tannoy Canterburys with custom crossovers; Amp - Radford STA100; Preamp - EAR 912; Vinyl: Thorens TD124 MkII with Ikeda IT345-CR1 and Ortofon 309 Limited tonearms; Cartridges: Miyajima Madake, Zero Mono 0.7 and Premium 1.0 retipped by Ana Mighty Sound with bamboo cantilever, Ortofon SPU Royal N and Shure M3D with Jico stylus; phono stage and SUT from EAR 912; Esoteric Sound Re-Equalizer for equalisation of early mono and 78; Digital: Audio Note CDT2/II transport.
