Good man, love vinyl myself and have 600+ LPs and growing. Starting to collect jazz vinyl, Coltrane and the like.Yes i play the tenor but also listen to loads of music. Just getting back into vinyl after a 20 year + hiatus.
Question is anybody know where to buy good quality LP's.
Another Philistine that will never be convinced. If you have to ask mate, you just don't get it. 180g+, half speed masters, that's where its at. Honestly Kev, you need to listen to a mid-level vinyl system properly set up with decent vinyl. It will blow away all but the best top end CD players - move up a step or two and nowt CD-wise will touch vinyl. They are a hassle but that's all part of the fun. Still dreaming up reasons to buy a Michell Gyroscope but Mrs HD won't have it in the house anyway! There was an interesting thread about this stuff a while back I recall.I have to ask - why? I don't miss the crakles, pops, jumps at all... Constant changing/turning over records is a hassle when I just want to listen. And to my ears (maybe I'm saying something), CDs sound so much better.
Interesting to hear the names Naim and Linn Sondeck again. My brother had one with a Linn arm, and cartridge and I spent a lot of time listening to it through his Kef Kalindas. Was the bees knees, but I must admit I didn't notice much difference between that and my Akai CD player. I might consider a record deck in the future, but it'll be a while before the kids are old enough. And as for mobiles, I got my first one at 41.... Didn't have a phone at home for many years, didn't miss it, either.
