Hi. I'm new to vinyl and just bought an Audio Technica LP120 turntable and a Sherwood RX-4109 stereo receiver. I was hoping that you guys could give me some advice on speakers within the $200 range or so (working high schooler budget). I'm not quite sure if this is the best thread for this, so forgive me if I'm in the wrong place. Any input at all would be really helpful and much appreciated; I'm way out of the way from any store that sells a variety of speakers, so just popping into a store on any given day to test them out myself is out of the question. Thanks.

That's cool as hell. Jack White's always been a blind spot for me, might have to check out this new record.

I think you're in the right spot, I just don't know the answer. I'm sure someone here will be able to help you, though :-)

there is also this fancy new thread :
Turntables/Stereo/Audiophile Questions and Discussion

In terms of your question, there are several good blogs and review sites out there, here's an example for bookshelf speakers with a variety of prices:

The Audiophiliac's Top 10 speakers from $40 to $400 - CNET

I recently purchased a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 bookshelf speakers after reading several positive reviews (including that article above) and am really loving them so far. They are a little out of your budget range at $350 though.

If you're in the market for this month's new Sharon Van Etten album, you can cop the limited clear vinyl edition including a poster and bonus 7" here: Vinyl

$17, no tax, free shipping? Sign me up. The same bundle directly from Jagjaguwar comes out to like $32.

Thanks for this. I was discouraged by the Jagjaguwar price (Amazon had the regular version for about $30 too). Great deal, order placed.

Cool! Thanks! I'll definitely look them up.

Finally got Timber Timbre's Hot Dreams on vinyl today. Such a well pressed and well sounding album.

The ultra vinyl is gimmicky, but not that bad. The idea for tracks placed under labels was pushing it however.

I had something like that. But they weren't real records.
