Hello tomguide users. Recently i got into the world of record collecting. After receiving a massive slot of vinyls from a old timer I helped move. (PS some goldies in the collection.) since im a novice i decide to invest into a beginner level turntable the lp60 and work my way up. I have been doing research on good speakers to get. And its just my luck my local best buy has a sell going on for the klispch r51-m passive speakers two for 179.00$ I also get a college discount.

Theres two things i want to know will the lp60 support passive speakers.

And if it does what other items do i need. It has a preamp built in do i just need a reciever for audio controll and power or both.

Thank you guys

You can't connect passive speakers to the turntable. You will have to have an amp with a volume control (an integrated amp). The good news is your turntable DOES have a built-in preamp so any amp can be used.

Your cheapest approach is to go to a pawn shop and get a home stereo. You can then connect your turntable to any RCA line input port (CD, TAPE, DVD, etc).
