    As the title suggests, looking for some compact (powered) bookshelf speakers to pair with my record player (simple AT-PL50) but will likely eventually upgrade it.

    Happy to spend up to about $1000 and have had the recommendation to get the Kanto YU6 but curious as to what other people think.

    I've had some Kanto yumi bookshelf speakers for a couple of years now, for the TV. They benefited from having an active sub, but sounded great enough without it.
    I found it difficult to source them in Australia last time looked. Where have you found some?

    Lots of options to choose from:
    Klipsch r41-pm or 51, or stretch your budget to the Fives
    Yamaha HS7 or HS8
    Tannoy range
    Then more multimedia brands like audioengine or edifier


    Does your turntable have a built in phono preamp, or do you need the speakers to have a phono input?

    The turntable does have a preamp so shouldn't need the speakers to have one. I'll look into the Tannoy range and the Klipsch 41/51/Fives. Thanks guys!
