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!

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.
