How Many of You

a) Still own a turntable, and B) actually play it?

I put on mine today and put on all 4 Berries albums and quite frankly I like the sound better than remastered CD's - there is just something about a full sound with a needle.

I still have one, although it isn't presently hooked up. There are many LPs I want to "upgrade", but I don't even know where the albums are --probably in a moving box somewhere.

I've got a good turntable too. My kids get a puzzled look on their faces when I play something on it. There is something special about "Nobody Knows" starting the second side of "Fresh". The physical location of a song on a record somehow meant something.

I agree - I seemed to always have liked the 2nd song on each record lol - don't know why! I had to go out and get a new needle about 8 years ago and it cost me like $75 - I am afraid to see if I wear this one out what it will set me back lol. Therefore all destroyed albums are a no-no on my turntable. I think the kids are missing out on real records - I still can't say a CD store or an MP3 store - it's a freaking RECORD store to me lol.

I do and I still play records, especially when I acquire a rare recording. The last one was a record in phenomenally great condition of Oscar Levant playing the Anton Rubenstein piano concerto. What a marvelous sound and I just loved hearing the record! Also finally got one of him doing the Grieg and Tchaikovsky concertos. I still play my old Raspberries and EC albums. Sometimes, there is just nothing like listening to the record.

I have a recent turntable (a Sony, and not that expensive, either) with a built-in pre-amp that allows me to burn CDs via a stand-alone CD burner, directly off it....which I do as soon as I get any new records.

As primitive as this may sound, some companies still put out some releases in vinyl-only format (Norton Records, for one, who still puts out tons of very cool 45s).

I do own a turntable still, use it at least a couple of times amonth. I think I have around ten Rasberries LPs, counting my duplicates.

Like Marv, I have too much good stuff to let sit and gather dust.

I can actually appreciate a little crackle and pop hear and there. Matthew Sweet purposely used that on the intro to his album 'Girlfriend'.

I still have one, a Pioneer PL-990.

I don't use it much anymore, just to burn a song or two to CD in case I only have it on vinyl. I haven't bought anything in years to play on it, except recently I found a copy of Eddie Money's "Two Tickets to Paradise" which is a unique 45 single mix, and has never been released on CD. Plus, I have about 6 crates worth of albums, and roughly 150 singles, so I need it just in case!

Marv what you do in the privacy of your own home with vinyl is your business. What happens in Calgary, stays in Calgary!

Who said I was referring to vinyl records?

Best Buy and Circut City sell a turntable that plugs into a USB port on your PC and makes it easy to burn CD's or make MP3's from those old albums that you love and would love to play in your car or on your I-POD.

Its under 200 bucks.

I plan on getting a slightly used turntable, amp, preamp and speakers in the near future. Mobile Fidelity made some great vinyl. Of course I do believe it has richer sound than CD. I played a couple of the Berries vinyl on a friends system and it was just awesome. Cant wait to get it.

I've seen that turntable at Circuit City (that you can hook up to your 'puter), pretty kewl! wink Hoping to be able to afford getting one, one day!

I still have my turntable and of course, all my 'Berries LP's (along with Beatles, and many other groups!!)!
