Why You Should Buy Speakers for Your Turntable
Vinyl records, played on audiophile turntable systems, offer better frequency response and crisp signals than virtually all other formats. Because they provide nuanced and wide-ranging outputs, turntable audio setups need speakers with the same wide-ranging color and clarity.
Invest your audiophile system dollars equally across all components. You wouldn’t put an entry-level stylus/cartridge on a high-end turntable, right? There’s no point to run a low-quality signal through a finely-crafted system. Just as you wouldn’t put premium gas in a worn out old car, you wouldn’t pair a top-quality turntable, preamp, and receiver with a mid-range (or entry-level) set of speakers.
Your high-end system deserves the best set of turntable speakers you can get!
