Hi Guys, Looking for a short cut in some research. I have collected a small set of records from the 40s-60s. American classics sort of stuff -- Sinatra, Doris Day, Bing, Nat King Cole, Peggy Lee, etc. A few early 45s, some 33s and some 78s. Also, some Ray Charles and Johnny Cash. Stuff like that. (edit -- decided I'm going to keep playing my 78s on my old turntable, so no need to get a new one capable of 78 speed) I have a mid 1950s RCA Orthophonic turntable with built-in speakers. It plays my records some warmly and wonderfully. My issue is it doesn't really play softly. It's got loud and louder as the volume settings. Anything below 4, and the range in the speakers drops off quickly, leaving only the mid-tones. Also, I do have some more "recent" stuff, lol -- Fleetwood Mac and Moody Blues. The RCA just can't handle them. Distorts a bit. I'd love to get a modern turn table with a classic wood look. Something that would play a full range of volume, whether playing loudly or softly, and could also handle the more modern records. Would love to stay tube, if that's even possible??? Any rate, I'm not looking for a massive component system. Would love an all-in-one, but barring that, a turntable, amp and bookshelf type speakers. I'm thinking I might sell my FF setup for this, so that gives me an upper limit of about $3,000 to play with, though if I can get something under $1K, I might not need to sell anything, and would prefer that approach. Not even sure where to begin, so I was hoping someone here might have some pointers???
