Yeah I bought an old kenwood turntable a few years ago. Been meaning to upgrade the needle and cartridge, but at the moment I enjoy playing second hand vinyl that I buy for $1 a piece. I do have some DJ Shadow and Radiohead I bought brand new, and it sounds real nice...
I love vinyl. Have tons of old house and dnb on vinyl in the garage. I also have a 10000 watt PA system. Nothing sounds more warm those big ass dual 18's than vinyl.
Yup yup! I've got a pair of 18s driven by a Yamaha P4500, and 15" mains with horns driven by Behringer A500's (1 ea). Although my turntable sits in a closet beside the system, and it's not nearly soundproof enough to be able to turn it up while using the table.
Listen to records every week. From Lawrence Welk to Venom. Vinyl has a soul. Some of my best memories were hanging with my dad on Sunday's listening to records. Have a couple hundred records and always adding. Love yard sale and thrift shop finds.
One awesome thing is some smaller record companies are selling vinyl and including downloads for the digital versions, which is a pretty awesome idea.
