As an audiophile, I’ve pursued world class sound reproduction for almost my entire adult life. First, I focused on CDs as my music source. Then, when I inherited my father’s LP collection, I added LPs to the mix. My path to facilitate LPs as a music source was pretty simple. I purchased a Rega Planar 25, with a Super Elys cartridge. Also, I added a phono card to my Naim Olive system. As it was my Father’s collection, the LPs constantly brought back memories from childhood…when I spent a significant amount of time with my Father. In a way, the Planar 25 was a time machine for me. The destination was good.
You’re in the midst of a pandemic and spending a lot of ‘quality’ time at home (lol), so now is the perfect time to perfect your audio system. I have a four-step plan for building it, so you can avoid wasting time and money on shoddy stuff.
