Whats going on guys,
I have an AIWA PX-E77 Turntable that was given to me by my late grandfather in addition to some records. It's an old Belt-Drive Turntable that seems to be unused, has only RCA Male cables as well as a power cord for connections and it looks to be part of a stereo set that he had at one point. The needle seems to be unused, so I guess that's good.
I don't know much about turntables, and I've looked through countless forums about my specific Turntable and similar ones for help. I really couldn't get a definitive answer, so I'm coming here for help. I want to ask this: should I keep this item and either upgrade the stylus and/or cartridge in order to get the best sound out of the turntable or should I get rid of this and look for a more up to date turntable? Keep in mind that, I don't want to scratch the vinyl; I just want to replay it back into my DAW via my Mbox 3 Mini.
(Another Question - With general Turntable set-ups, is it wise to invest in a RCA Female to 1/4 Plug (Mono) or a (Stereo) cable?)
Appreciate the help.
