Re: Thinking of Getting into Vinyl - Worth It?

I just recently bought an entry level AT LP60 turntable and pulled out the few LP's I had left because I sold most of what I had and gave them a spin. It brought back allot of memories even the one where my spine would cringe when that bad skip in the record occured. After realizing the few records I had were not in very good shape I decided to check out some local shops and see what I could get for a reasonable price and quality. I found this great little place called Joe's Albums and went in and struck up a conversation with Joe. We talked about what allot of you are mentioning here and before I knew it it was an hour and a half later and I was leaving with a smile on my face and 3 LP's that I haven't heard in years. I spent about $28 and the records were all in NM condition. I went home and listened to all 3 and for a little while i was 18 again and singing along with those songs from yesterday. If your to young to have that same type of feeling because your birthday, as they say on the Goldbergs is 1980 something then maybe LP's aren't for you. I since have purchased a new 1970 something Technics TT and have about 50 LP's back in my collection and for not allot of money I really enjoy vinyl again. It seems to me that if I had to spend a ton of money, which I don't have, I would not have done it so my advice would be the same as mentioned, Start of slow and buy something reasonable and you might find you have a new hobby and if not then it won't hurt too much when you sell it to someone else for a little less than what you paid.
