Currently rocking 2 10-year old M-audio bookshelf monitors off my U-Turn (with Grado blue cartridge) and the cheapest pre-amp I could afford (at the time of purchase). Now, thanks to these cursed ears of mine (and the blessing of gainful employment), I feel ready to upgrade. Growing up, my father had a Nikko 1019, and I can’t get that look out of my mind. He unfortunately gave it away. I have limited space, but would like to buy an old vintage tuner for around $200 (these seem not to be plentiful in the market, and I might be just as happy with a 5/7/819), as well as upgrade my speakers for around $300 (unfortunately, space is limited and the speakers need to be shorter than 10in). Am I crazy? Going about this the wrong way? Should I forgo my Nikko nostalgia? Any guidance or tips anyone could recommend would be much appreciated.
