OK, I,know it's been asked before, but I've been wondering why Yamaha hasn't offered any new matching turntables for their Basic A-S701/801 and their top of the line A-S2100/3000 integrated amps. I feel that vinyl is somewhat of a fad, but most people who will spend money on any of Yamaha's mid-line to top of the line audio equipment are most likely die-hard music lovers with large collections of vinyl that will be will kept for years and years beyond any hipster fad. I believe that most of us are "baby-boomers" or early "gen x-ers," but now we're in our peak earning years and often having the income to purchase nicer audio equipment. To be honest, I'm basically done with purchasing classic used audio equipment from the 70s and 80s, so I wouldn't mind spending the money on a nice Yamaha turntable to go with my A-S801... Even if it's contracted out to another manufacturer, but to Yamaha's specs AND quality controls AND badged "Yamaha." Like most, if not all of their newer equipment anyway, so to me, contracting out doesn't seem like a show stopper. With all that said, is tthere some reason(s) why Yamaha hasn't made this move?? I know that Yamaha has been out of the turntable market since the mid to late 80s, but as a true leader in today's two-channel audio market, "I" can't see why they haven't moved into this direction... I looked at Onkyo's new turntable, but wasn't impressed by it at all. I know that Music Hall, Rega and others offer outstanding turntables, like the new Technics MK-1200s, so "I" truly believe that there is a strong market here in the U.S. for a Yamaha turntable. I know it's not going to happen, but it's nice to dream!! And I'll most likely end up with a Rega turntable.
