After dreaming of a vinyl player for years, I finally decided to get one.
The setup is not perfect though as the pre-amp doesn’t have a volume output control at all. The only way to adjust the volume is to access the room settings in the Sonos app and change line-in level from there. The built-in volume control in Sonos is disabled for line-in signal. Maybe I’ll get a better pre-amp some day.
The shelf is made by KomodaFurniture.
I really like how my setup looks like. The sound of a record feels very different after getting used to digital streaming services, but it’s very much subjective anyway. Some people think that the sound of a vinyl record is close to perfection, while digital signal will always be inferior. I don’t have strong opinion about it, but I sometimes like to do things in an old fashioned way. Browsing through the records in your shelf feels very different to browsing through Spotify playlists.
A spinning record looks insanely cool! Can you achieve that with any streaming service?
