Hi everyone, new to this forum, but I am also new to Klipsch so I guess it makes sense. I did a lot of research on a good bookshelf speaker for upgrading my record player setup (within my price range) and settled on the Klipsch R-15M. My current setup is a Pro-Ject Debut Carbon, into a Pro-Ject Phono Box MM, and as of now into a kind of crappy sound bar - so clearly pretty excited for these new speakers. I thought I was fine without any sort of power amp, but after revisiting I am not so sure. So, I was hoping you guys could clear up for me if I need any additional hardware to translate a 12 inch piece of black plastic into beautiful sound. Here are the components of my set up: Record Player: https://www.crutchfield.com/S-p1Fg9GSeAZ2/p_252DBCDCGR/Pro-Ject-Debut-Carbon-DC-Gloss-Red.html Pre-Amp: https://www.crutchfield.com/p_252PBMMB/Pro-Ject-Phono-Box-MM.html?tp=204&awkw=75621861865&awat=pla&awnw=g&awcr=47439160225&awdv=c&awug=9010962&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI6IP_ht_s2gIVBBgMCh0NBQPFEAQYAyABEgInzvD_BwE Future Speakers: https://www.crutchfield.com/S-mkYWglngIs7/p_714R15M/Klipsch-Reference-R-15M.html If I do need an amp to maximize this setup, I would love recommendations! Not too pricey though, I am definitely on a budget Thank you so much!!!
***UPDATE***For some reason I cannot save any images to my laptop. I took detailed photos and you can see them at this link.https://drive.google.com/open?id=1L8bNgzcNtmjUOGBPkHdmc7PBZW7n8VZLAdditionally, I hooked it up - used one of my extra cartridges, and rubbed my finger and got noise. When I went to set the platter, I noticed two tabs and wondered what the purpose. I then noticed a sticker explaining what the tabs were for. The are shipping screws for the motor. So I didn't run the unit any further. It did hold the speed for the brief time it was on. Sometimes the motor shipping screws can be reinserted, sometimes not. Ive decided not to remove the shipping screws in the event that I ship the turntable and I'm unable to reinsert them. It appears to be functional. Let me know if you have any questions. I have what appears to be a NOS Sansui SR-838 - I'll use that term 'NOS' loosely. It is in its original styrofoam packaging. It includes what appears to be its original headshell and stylus. The plastic cover has some light scratches and hazing, not typical of a used table. The black finish shows minimal hazing and one or two very light scratches. Outstanding condition - the only SR-838 table that would look nicer is one in the box unopened. I will post pictures in the next few hours when I get home. I would hold this at a high 9/9 or low 10/10 for condition only because I haven't had it in my possession since the late 70's Make offers - may trade for the right blend of cash/tube amp. http://www.usaudiomart.com/details/649395769-sansui-sr838-turntable-nos/ ***Update 2*** I removed the screws. I couldn't help it. Unit is fully operational and sounds amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBhA8QX9QhY
