$5000 to spend on a turntable

Recommended Posts

Ok at present I do not actually have $5,000 to spend on a turntable, but I do have a question if you don't mind.

 

My question for those who know way more than I do about turntables and what is where on the TT pecking order and are prepared to share their thoughts and knowledge, whether for new or secondhand units, is the following.

 

What would be your top single turntable recommendation at each of the following price points and why?

 

1. $2,000

 

2. $3,000

 

3. $4000

 

4. $5000

 

This is simply just for the turntable (and tone arm) with no cartridge and no phono stage. 

 

cheers Terry

So Terry, you mean for turntable and tonearm, I presume?

One question though, what would you spend on a cartridge and phono post getting a $5000 turntable because it kind of gets down to that when it comes to whether you are hearing a good system or a kick ass one.

2. $3,000 - Kuzma Stabi/Stogi S (second hand)

 

3. $4000 - Kuzma Stabi/Stogi S (new)

 

4. $5000 - Dr Feickert Woodpecker 2

 

This is simply just for the turntable with no cartridge and no phono stage.

Not a clue - but would assume well over Terry’s top category!
