I come into this part of the forum and literally (yes, literally and it's embarrassing since I'm at work) drool at the pics I see and from what I read. My setup in comparison is basically the equivalent of "found at the side of a dumpster". I have a Dual 505 with the stock Ortofon cart, Sansui R-30 Receiver and some Magnat bookshelf speakers I re-purposed from a home theater set up. Not to say that doesn't sound decent and gets the job done, but I think I would like to take a step up on all my equipment. Realistically I don't think I'd be spending boat loads of cash, more so looking for a reasonably priced gear that would take the sound to a noticeable next level. Have you guys put together a list like a "forum approved starter pack setup"? Considering I've spent $2000 on records in the last year, I assume I could take a break from purchasing more stuff (yeah right, like that's going to happen) and use this as a baseline budget to upgrade all gear over the next year. If this amount of money won't make much of an improvement to what I already have, then what should I be looking at budgeting?
