Hello, I'm new to turntables and vinyl since they're before my time. (I'm 19) My father is an avid collector and he has quite a collection but his turntable is in need of a new cartidge. He has an old Technics 1200 MK2. I already own about 10 records, mostly modern rock and some european dance. However, I want to buy a solid turntable that will let me import the records onto my comuter and keep the sound pure and better than cd. I already own the records I have on cd. I want to import the LP's in a way that will let me hear the difference clearly. I mainly listen to my music on my ipod or my computer. I am considering buying a Technics 1200 MK5 and attaching an Audio Technica Turntable Cartridge AT150MLX to it and using a Rolls/Bellari VP530 to import onto my computer. The total cost for this investment will come around 1k. Now what I want to know is, will this be a good enough investment for me to imporve on the sound of my cd's? I don't want to invest a grand in equipment and the records will sound identical to the cds on my ipod. I understand that headphones are part of the equation so I already own Bose Quiet Comfort 3 to be able hear a better range of frequencies. Am I wasting my money investing in all these parts? Instead of investing in all these parts, should I just stick to the turntable and the Rolls/Bellari VP530? Any help is greatly apreciated. Thank you!

I want to be able to hear a difference between my records and my cd's. Any difference is good enough. haha. It'll justify my madness.
