    Hi guys,

    first of all I'm new to the forum and not exactly sure where to post a thread like this. If this is the wrong place, please tell me where I should post instead.
    Now to my question:
    Yesterday, I bought a used Dual 1229. I don't have any HiFi equipment in my own room which means I need everything to play records.
    What setup (preamp, amplifier, speakers; also a new cartridge) would you say would be appropriate/proportionate for the turntable regardless of any budget as long as it is worthwhile?
    What setup (same components as above) would you recommend with a max. budget of ~600-700€?

    Thank you for your help!

    simply, to start, look for a cheap receiver or AVR that has phono input. connect left and
    right channel cables from TT to receiver, don't forget the ground wire, use headphones
    if you don't have speakers.

    then start enjoying the music. upgrade as needed for "better" music and/or when $$ appears,
    spend more on the music.

    since you're young, buy a cable from your phone to the receiver. I assume you have music
    on the phone.

    good luck - long journey - great music out there.
