Portable Turntable Systems

I`m back in UK soon and want to bring my LP record collection back here to Oz.

I won`t be able to bring my separate system which has a beautiful 70`s Rogers Amp. So am contemplating buying one of these portable turntables with integrated speaker systems when I`m back here.

I`ve read a few reviews and yet to see something that has had anything decent to say.
I can`t really afford to buy a new turntable, amp and a good set of speakers at the moment and don`t really have the room for it.

Anybody got one of these or would I be wasting my money

Cheers

Depends how often you're planning on playing them
The sound is pretty tinny, and if you're going to play anything regularly it will soon get damaged.
They're entry level models, and that's it.
Could you not spend a bit more and get a player with a preamp built in and just buy some speakers?

Look for an integrated amp on ebay and perhaps use pc speakers and a cheap separate t/t, which would mean you have a chance of enjoying your music.

If you bought the all singing and dancing kit your immediate reaction would be....why did I waste money!

If you can do it for that new, I'd suspect you can do it on ebay for 100.

I try to be sensible with my comments because if you look up TW Acoustic Raven AC 3 turntable- Whest Reference phono stage and Einstein The Preamp you will note that I do not follow my own advice

Rogers made some super amps and used to be based in Mitcham.
