Basic integrated amp for $700-$900
+1 on the Rogue Audio Sphinx - 1 or 2 . Version 1 is obviously  less costly and the phono was not nearly as quiet as the 2  . I have had and enjoyed both . Still have the 2 . You don't need the phono but maybe you will like the Rogue better and wi... 
Strange turntable/speaker issue
Congratulations , just read through this thread for the first time . Most of my original problems,  which sounded somewhat similar to a few of yours, was fixed with an Audioquest Sorbel record Mat . Now if I can get my records off the Mat a little...

At what point is an external D/A converter warranted or beneficial
Enlightening Conversation. Thank You @Noble100 and your insight it will help me with my 103. BTW I use it occasionally with a PS AUDIO PWD and the Oppo sometimes sounds better without it. I love the OPPO and think it sounds and plays much better t...

Klipsch!. The worst speaker company, EVER?
Love the Dudes Dark Sunglasses propped on his head  for the dark and dank inside video shoot.  Love my Heresy 1 from 1981 . Found them on CL and had Bob Crites modernize the crossovers. They are different than any of  the other speaker pairs I own... 
The one that got away
Wow, Love the cars thrown into the mix. For me it was a very solid and fully sorted 72 911S for a meager $15.5, from a very dedicated Porsche guy who had one too many. I dissed it when I stalled pulling up hill at a stop light and the guy behind m...

Best budget integrated choices
Rogue Sphinx is a great option.  A used v1 should set you back $750 or thereabouts and worth every dollar. the phone pre isn't great but is sufficient . Buy  the new v2 and the phono is better.  If you need a good clean low cost Arcam I have an AV...
