What speakers should I get to play vinyl records?

Episode 1348 (1:17:05)

Clay from Missouri
Audio Engine Powered Speakers

Clay got a new Audio Technica LP record player, and he's wondering what speakers should he get with it. Leo says that Clay has to figure out if the record player has its own preamp or not, and if it's balance or unbalanced. If it doesn't have a preamp, then he'll need an amp as well. Leo advises the Audio Engine powered speakers. They're excellent and come with a subwoofer. JBLs are also good. He'll want line level balanced.

Leo also really likes the JBL Authentics L16. It has that great vintage look, and has a phono input.
