    need help with a good starter turntable setup

    Rega planer 2 - rega brio r @50w per channel and some high sensitivity speakers? Maybe something with a horn? A decent 100w per channel amp will run you out of budget unless you don’t mind regular consumer products in that case a large plain Yamaha amp may do it

    Club gigging with Marshall 1987x using pedals?

    I play marshalls - when I need a smaller amp I use my vox ac30 exactly the same way I use my Marshall with the inputs jumped - have it on edge and use an OCD - its almost the same deal but more useable for small stages

    The things I don't like about my 2204

    Hafta agree -- your driving a Ferrari around downtown in circles - should be on the turnpike full gas! Preamp on 6/7 with a boost to suit and volume up past 11 o'clock - greenback speakers (low sens) help to keep volume low so you hafta turn up some more------
