I've been collecting classical vinyl records the last three years. Have now a huge collection, and still no turntable! LOL I'm holding out for one where I can put a stack of records on, so the music will play a long, long time. All the new turntables I've seen for sale in the stores today only play one record at a time. That's no good! LOL
I've had good luck finding vinyls at estate sales. They usually cost about $2 a piece, but sometimes I get lucky, and find some left when the prices are dropped 75%! But the vinyls themselves are priceless. The sound quality, to me, is superior to any digital recording I have ever heard. I say that, but maybe I haven't had the best digital players.... :)

(CNN) - For many years, it was a rite of fall.

You moved into your dorm room or new apartment. You started unpacking the car. And the first thing you set up in your new place was the stereo system: receiver, turntable or CD player, tape deck and speakers.

The wires could get tangled, and sometimes you had to make shelving out of a stack of milk crates. But only when the music was playing on those handpicked CDs, mix tapes or (geezer alert!) vinyl records did you move in the rest of your stuff.

A line of people stood waiting at the register of Val’s halla Records in Oak Park the morning of April 19, most with records in their hands.

That’s right, records; those black, round objects about the size of a dinner plate. First supplanted by the 8-tracks, cassette tapes, then smaller compact disks and later by the invisible digital downloads.

that's pretty interesting - I wonder if those are really "new" presses, or just refurbished ones cobbled together from old ones?

“There is a cultural slowing-down where people can sit in the same room at the same time and have something playing that they all can listen to.”

b/c there's no way to do that with any other music format!

these articles almost make me want to burn all my vinyl records.

I dunno. (amateurist), Wednesday, 26 November 2014 21:34 (five years ago) link
