I hate giving this answer, but it's so true: it's all relative and if depends on what you want to spend. 

I will say this; those are probably decent speakers and they obviously aren't going to break the bank. It you go with those speakers, I would say you'll be fine with the Pyle pre amp you linked. 

Whenever you get yourself set up, come join us in this thread:

http://www.mygnrforum.com/topic/201863-vinyl-lp-and-turntable-discussion/?page=64

We'll all be more than happy to help you through the process :)

 

Opened that thread earlier while searching - but haven't had time to read it all yet  ;)

 

thanks!

Looks like they are starting to break up the some of the boxes and selling some of the exclusive items a la cart... I’ll pick up the tape of the Mystic demos if they ever sell that...

The greed of this band, charging $1000, is still barely conceivable.

The only way to stop this blatant greed is to quit buying GNR tickets and merchandise. Voting with our wallets is the only recourse we have.

🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳🥳

Noticed it dropped to $499 again - $75 worth of vouchers and only $10 postage and I’m looking at £400 all in. Purchased!!!! Thought I would have to wait a bit longer TBH - I wonder if the form they sent after my chat to them about the price on the GNR site has forced it back down again? No matter - finally got it done!

Bizarrely - just got an e-mail from Amazon saying they are refunding me for import tax to the tune of £85!! So that plus the £30 refund I got for a marked vinyl cover (which is barely noticeable TBH) means I have paid about £275 all in. I am planning on selling my unopened Super Deluxe edition I already had so by the end hopefully will have only paid around £220 for the box!!!

Its confirmed I am 100% going to be the owner of a Locked and Loaded boxset lol

Congrats!  After having one for 6 months or so, I have realized that the coolest part of the whole thing is the actual box.  That is not a dig on the music or trinkets, just that the box itself has really become the gem of the whole thing IMO.

I ended up getting rid of everything from this set.

I broke the cross off the box and sold that separately. Got rid of the rest of the records, the demo cassette and everything. I originally wanted it for the demos LP but everything GNR does these days sort of leaves a bad taste in my mouth so I just ditched it all. I actually made quite a bit of money splitting it all up.

The only thing I want from it is the Mystic Studio demo tape so I could rip it to a FLAC or mp3 file. If anyone has it, is the quality better than the leak from last year, or is it the same?

yeah man, I bought mine for close to the same plus 3 for gifts. Was definitely worth the $40 bucks.  Gave one away so far and I have  people in mind for the others who are into Guns but no one really listens to CDs anymore.

Its definitely not one of those things that is necessary to own. To me it's more of a show piece than anything. I've come to realize I'm a very materialistic person and I like to flaunt things I own to people I know. I like having things that others can't or won't. In high school I rocked thrift store/yard sale clothes while everyone else wore Hollister and Abercrombie, they made fun of me now I make fun of them. Gross.

What are the odds that the Locked N' Loaded box is marked down to $200 on Black Friday, November 29th?

This is not the realization of just a Materialistic person. It’s an Arsehole.

In this instance you own something others wouldn’t and didn’t buy. Flaunt them tattoos man. And the skull rings. 

Enjoy the music if you get around to listening to it.

Not sure on that one, but it certainly couldn't hurt to wait a couple weeks to find out. 

It'll really depend on how many they were able to unload on other sites. A couple of months after it was released, they somehow managed to unload some onto sites like Music Direct, etc. 

Then they started with the huge discounts through their own site, but the price has been pretty steady for a while since then. If they are still sitting on a ton of them, then I don't doubt they'll go to $199 or $249 to blow the rest out.

An odd contradiction with your self-proclamation that "I like to have things that others can't or won't". That suggests you care rather too much about what others think of you.  

Based on your "I like to flaunt things I own to people I know" comment,  I do have somewhat of a fixed preconception of what the people you 'know' may think about that. It's probably not favourable.

I still refuse to buy anything that comes with a free assfucking by Team Brazil. 

Also, I'd still feel pretty damn fucked over if I'd paid the original price for this ridiculous cashgrab. 

But honestly, 250 would be a very good price for this. Especially the with all the vinyl. If that would have been the original price I probably would have bought it.
