Speaker Guide

Speakers are an integral part of any turntable setup and can be just as important as the turntable you’re using.The first thing you will need to know is what kind of amp or pre-amp you plan to use. An older amp with a Phono input generally use old-school speaker wire and you will need speakers that use this type of wire to work. A newer amp/pre-amp will have either red and white RCA connections or a USB connection or both. Newer speakers such as Audioengine’s A2+ and A5+ speakers have both RCA and USB inputs as well as an 1/8-inch input, which make it an ideal setup for turntables like the Audio Technica LP60 series or coupled with a Music Hall Mini pre-amp and a Music Hall MMF-2.2 for an ideal setup.

The most ideal placement for speakers to achieve the best possible sound is to place your speakers the same distance apart and at an equal is distance from where you sit most of the time. It can also improve performance to angle the speakers slightly towards you. Although it might be tempting to place the speakers against the wall to increase bass response, the mids and highs might sound muddy. Place the speakers about a foot from the wall for the best possible sound.
