4krow 3,868 Posted January 24, 2021 Share Posted January 24, 2021 I browsed through the Music Direct catalog today with no intention to begin with. Then, when I look at the music, it is either vinyl or SACD (non hybred). Ok, so assuming that I want to go with a SACD player, how much? Oh about $2,400 for the Marantz N30. Hmm, maybe not. How about vinyl? Well, a Thorens TD120? Direct Drive will run you about $1K mounted with an Audio Technicana cartridge. Well, that's better. Then I remember, of course I have to buy albums again, that is expected, BUT also a good record cleaning machine, and a phono pre amp. Well above the $2,400 of the Marantz N30, and besides my budget doesn't need to start at that level in either case. So say that I have a $1K budget. SACD or vinyl? Any ideas? 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
