    Ok, I want to listen to albums and need to get a turntable, record player, or whatever they are called these days. Any recommendations? I have a few ideas and want to know if I could hook it to the back of my TV and let it run through the soundbar.......:dontknow: I was looking and is it better to get one that has a preamplifier built in or one without and by a little amplifier.

    Step 1 has been completed for quite some time. I just want to do something different. Went to that record store day thingie a few weeks ago and got the urge to seek out some "pieces of vinyl".

    That's ok, I think I may have figured it out.

    The Jeep is great. Trading my last one for a car was foolish and impulsive. I thought I would be able to get away with a car and was really enjoying it until the snow and my drive to work.....then not so good. I figure this thing will last a long time and no more trades for me. Nope.

    i wouldn't buy a turntable with a built in amp in case something goes down. it'll be easier to replace the amp than the whole unit.

    No amp for the home theater just a sound bar. I did think to buy them separate and Pro-Ject has some really nice ones and the little "pre amp" is around $49.
