Hi everyone and thank you for your great advices 

I own a A9 limited edition  

I would like to purchase a turntable,  for a recreative use only , budget up to 300$ the less is better. My preference is for a sort vintage look turntable, wood style . to match my A9 limited edition

The idea is to play records sometimes and listen to the music on my A9. Would be great if can play in repeat the record .

I read that bluetooth is not a good option and that the turntable should be pre-amp and probably have usb connection for what I want to do .

I guess if I cannot connect the two in WI-FI  , which would be my first choice if you guys tell that will work , I would connect the  A9 speaker to the turntable via UBS . That to say that the TurnTable must be suitable for this purpose . 

Any suggestions ? what turntable shall I buy ? how shall I connect to the A9 ?

 

thank you all!

L.

No problem there - just connect the turntable/the output of the pre-amp to the line-in on the A9 using a simple R/L phono/cinch cable.

The A9 will turn on to that input, when it receives a signal from the turntable.

No need for wifi, bluetooth or alike.....

As for the turntable - pick what you like, but not the cheapest!

How about a pre-used B&O turntable/a BeoGram ;-)

And welcome to Beoworld.

Are you also stating that he needs a pre amp as well?  Or the A9 or the pre amp?

MM is right on, go wired and and go B&O. A vintage B&O turntable that would meet you criteria and not be too expensive would be a Beogram 1700 or similar (automatic but doesn’t have auto repeat, I think the only B&O turntable with wood and auto repeat is the beogram 8000, 8002)

If it were me, I’d wait for a excellent condition BG1700 with a dead cartridge in the $100usd range and then ship the cart off for rebuilding for $150-200. Adequate phono preamps can be had for $50-100, (you’ll need this for phono signal equalization and amplification of the turntable to be equal to line input). Turntable sound for this dollar amount will be difficult to find with this level of style.

I’ve been playing with a nicer low latency apt-x Bluetooth transmitter from my phono preamp to various B&O Bluetooth speakers or headphones with decent results but wired is the way to go. There are turntables on the market with built in phono preamps and Bluetooth transmission but they are of only moderate quality and style.

Not sure, if that question was meant as a comment to my post...

....but —— this is what I wrote:

So yes, he needs a pre-amp (depending on the turntable he will buy).... and he already has the A9 ;-)

How about something like this - a BG6000 ;-)

Sure, a bit pricey, but vinyl lovers have to bleed for their hobby ;-))

And maybe a pre-amp from Steve:

I don’t believe we have to bleed (although bleeding purifies the soulWink) and I don’t think one needs to be a vinyl lover to occasionally enjoy playing a record or to enjoy a having a beautiful turntable out as decoration.

Here is a very cheap setup I found for a young coworker:

She uses it maybe a few times a month but mostly enjoys having records out on display and it always works when she wants to show off to her friends.

Hi Guys, I appreciate all of your suggestions .

 

I am still looking for a suggestion for a turntable possible wood-style that can do all of the above  with a budget of 300$.  (pre-amps , dust cover , 45-33 , 120v , repeat function if available )

That is budget I want to invest in perfectly functional product and do NOT spend extra on replacing or buying extra accessories .

Thank you for taking your time to answer my post

I would recommend skipping the repeat and increase the budget a small bit
- then your best option for a hassle free all in one solution is this one:

Don't go for the cheaper or vintage ones, if you want something that just works.
