I'm beginning to educate myself on what I call 'modern analog' (my last real involvement with analog was with a Technics TT/Pioneer receiver setup in my college days). As the thread title suggests, my setup will soon look like this:
---PC laptop running Vista and iTunes into Apple TV, toslink to 306SACD
Martin Logan Vantages
Wireworld Platinum Eclipse IC/Nordost Heimdall IC/Nordost Heimdall SC
I am going to start with a very low budget setup just to get a feel for things (maybe a Technics or Sony TT with Parasound zPhono), but I want to eventually build an analog front end comparable to the setup above. I would rather save up and buy big to begin with than tweak my way there. What price range should I be looking in? I'm thinking about the $2,500-$3k range. Thoughts?
