I've been contemplating the idea of investing in a proper stereo setup. I haven't tinkered with record players recently and all I remember was my mother cautioning my that I might scratch the vinyl with the needle. What should I be looking for as far as components? I currently have a JVC stereo that is connected to my macbook pro. Could I use that same system and connect it to a record player? what type of maintenance should I be aware of for vinyls and the record player itself? How much room should I need? Are there any good resources I should read before investing?
