    Default Back into Vinyl...Finally

    After a couple of false starts with eBay purchases I'm finally enjoying vinyl again. I was at a repair shop picking up a piece of equipment and was able to land a mint Technics SL-QD3 with a Grado cartridge. Then, when I got home there was the package of albums I bought from George at my front door. The albums are in better shape than George indicated.

    Well, I guess congratulations are in order than. :D

    I've got some great vinyl selections from George too. The local goodwill has recently expanded their vinyl area and I run into more folks sorting through it. I have to keep a hand on my buy stack while sorting through the selections.

    Welcome to the club and congrat's!
    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    cool beans, I really like the amount of cheap used vinyl I can find, although, it seems to be going up in price a bit as the resurgence continues, I do wonder though whether the rebound will be sustained long term.

    I was in my local S Army store Saturday and they had a new box of records. Picked thru and found about 50 in excellent condition. Normally priced at $1.00 ea., I asked the manager could he let em go a little cheaper. He said if you buy all those they will be .25 apiece. Done deal. I'm getting so many I don't have time to listen to them. Guess we better grab them while they are available.

    There is not one thing wrong with doing that. The only thing I would tell you to do would be to clean/treat the LPs you are accumulating while everything else is in storage. This way when you get your rig up and running again, you will only have to do a quick spin on the cleaning machine and they are ready to play.
