Anyone here into vinyl / records?
I'm 32 years old... my childhood was the tail-end of the mainstream record. ...but as a kid, playing records completely mesmerized me.
I'm not into most of the 60s-80s rock... but I like listening to big band, Sinatra, classical and some specifics like Billy Joel, etc.
I've heard the debate between the sound of a record and playback of digital music... obviously I have plenty of CDs and listen to my iPod everyday... but yeah, something about the turntable really brings it alive.
I have two main turntables... one is a nice vintage 70s Dual turntable, fully automatic, stackable. The other is also pretty neat... a Sony front loading turntable with an infrared sensor that reads the tracks and can skip like a CD. ...as cool as it is, it's a front loading unit and I like to SEE the record... or pick-up the tonearm myself. :-) I also have one of those very boxy / suitcase school-issue Califone players.
