Do you wish to listen to (or re listen to) your vinyl records but do not own any Hi-Fi equipment? In order to do so, you will of course need a turntable as well as a phono preamplifier or an integrated amplifier (with a phono input). You will also need speakers in order to complete your Hi-Fi system!
To help you build your Hi-Fi system, maPlatine.com offers ready to listen packages in which we guarantee a perfect compatibility between the products and especially a great sound quality. You can thus order a complete Hi-Fi system to listen to your LPs.
1. Hi-Fi systems to start off in analogue

The turntable & amplifier ready to listen package is an excellent choice if you wish to start off in the analogue world and you already have Hi-Fi speakers. In this package, you will find Pro-Ject’s best seller, the Debut Carbon 2M Red Special Edition turntable, which is delivered as standard with an Ortofon 2M Red phono cartridge.

If you listen to every style of music, this turntable/amplifier combination is what you need!
The Essential II ready to listen package offers every necessary equipment to build a complete Hi-Fi system, without having to spend too much money. In this package, you will find Pro-Ject’s entry level turntable, the Pro-Ject Essential II Reference turntable. To put forward all the qualities of this vinyl record player we combined it with the Cambridge Audio Topaz AM10 integrated amplifier. And this complete Hi-Fi system comes with Hi-Fi speakers! With these Q Acoustics 3010i NEW bookshelf speakers you will have a Hi-Fi system and sound restitution of quality. In short, this package is ideal to start off in analogue in good conditions!
2. Hi-Fi systems to go even further in your analogue experience
For those of you who wish to go even further in the audiophile performances of your Hi-Fi system, and have the budget to do so, other maPlatine.com ready to listen packages are available. These Hi-Fi systems are made up of higher end Hi-Fi products.
The Discovery package has some of the components of the turntable & amplifier package. Indeed, we are once again offering the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon/ Cambridge Audio Topaz AM10 combination. In this price range, this combination is the most pertinent and will give you the best sound restitution possible. The difference between these two Hi-Fi systems is the addition of the Pro-Ject Speaker Box 5 bookshelf speakers. With this Discovery package, you will have a complete Hi-Fi system which offers a precise and musical sound.
And if your budget enables you to do so, you can also purchase our Discovery Premium Package. This package has the same equipment as the Discovery Hi-Fi system, but includes higher end bookshelf speakers. In this complete Hi-Fi system, you will therefore find the Monitor Audio Bronze 1 speakers. With these speakers you will obtain an even more precise sound with instruments perfectly reproduced. It is also important to take into account their wooden finish, which gives a higher end aspect to your Hi-Fi system.
The RPM 1 Carbon ready to listen package is also made up of Monitor Audio Bronze 1 bookshelf speakers. The difference between this Hi-Fi system and the previous Hi-Fi system is the vinyl record player as well as the integrated amplifier. Indeed, like its name indicates, this ready to listen package is made up of the Pro-Ject RPM 1 Carbon turntable and the Cambridge Audio Topaz SR10 V2 integrated amplifier. This Hi-Fi system is of great quality and offers a dynamic and transparent sound restitution. The specialized press has awarded this Hi-system with the Choc de Classica and What HiFi 5 stars awards!
Are you not fully pleased with the atypical look, in the form of a “water drop”, of the Pro-Ject RPM 1 Carbon vinyl record player? We also offer the combination of Cambridge Audio Topaz SR 10 V2 and Monitor Audio Bronze 1 speakers with another Pro-Ject vinyl record player of excellent quality: the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit SB DC vinyl turntable. If you wish to find out more, this is the Esprit ready to listen package.
3. Hi-Fi systems to optimize your analogue experience

The Top pick ready to listen package is a complete Hi-Fi system, made up of the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon Esprit DC turntable as well as “made in France” Hi-Fi products: the Atoll IN50 SE integrated amplifier and the Focal Chorus 706 speakers. We were not the only ones to be seduced by these Hi-Fi speakers as they were awarded by the specialized press (Diapason d’Or, Stereo et Sound + Image). To make this Hi-Fi system even more versatile, we added the Atoll MM/MC P100 phono stage. Placed inside the amplifier, it makes this turntable compatible with MM and MC cartridges. In short, a versatile Hi-Fi system, neutral and musical!
If you are an enthusiast of Rega products and have a substantial budget, then the Rega Prestige ready to listen package is certainly made for you. In this package, you will of course find a Rega turntable, the Planar 2, and the Rega Brio R integrated amplifier. The British brand’s two Hi-Fi products have received several awards (Choc de Classica, Diapason d’Or, What Hi-Fi, Hi-Fi Choice…) in only a few months after being released on the market! This tells us everything about the audiophile qualities these products have to offer. Unlike our other Hi-Fi systems, the Rega Prestige is made up of tower speakers, the Monitor Audio Bronze 5. These speakers represent all of the brand’s know-how and the sound restitution is of excellent quality. Guaranteed emotion!
