I use the aforementioned home cinema amp for all my audio needs including vinyl. My turntable's a Rega RP40, Ortofon Blue cart with a Pro Ject MM Box into Cambridge Audio Minx bookshelfs. OK: so what's bugging me is the thought that, as vinyl is my fave medium, I'm missing out on something on the pure audio front. Maybe. Don't get me wrong, I really like the Yamaha...but does my Rega (and my ears) deserve better? Should I be using a separate amp for my turntable? Optimally speaking. If so, what would be the kind of price bracket for an appropriate amp that would mark a sizeable improvement (in your opinion) over the Yamaha I'm using now? I hope I've explained myself adequately here. I'm looking forward to hearing from you out there - thanks in advance!
