So I just brought my record player out to where I live, as I now have space for it! I've been doing some research on speakers and whether i'm dumb or can't really grasp the order, i can't come to a conclusion. Earlier i had my turntable, Technics SL-D3 connected to a phono preamp and then connected to some computer speakers (I did what i could at the time haha). Well now that I plan on using it a lot more new speakers, better speakers i should say, are obviously a must. I've been looking at the Wharfedale Diamond 225 or 10.2, bookshelf speakers due to the size of my room, not sure which would be better as there is a big price difference. What should i look for when looking at speakers? Also, as they are passive speakers, connections to my turntable are the red and white rca cables and a ground and then i know i need an amp in between but do i get a phono pre amp or regular amp? also would i need banana plugs cause the connections to the back of most passive speakers are that, correct? I need educated. Does anyone have any recommendations as to what i should do? or would powered speakers do justice? or is it just based on preference?
