I think that those of us whose lives span the vinyl/tape/cassette/cd/digital downloads eras, may feel that we are always one step behind the technology. I struggle to keep up, which is where the grandchildren come in handy! Eldest has just set me up my Christmas present: a NAS/Media Player. Over the next few weeks (months?) I will be attempting to record all my vinyl to PC and then to separate storage, at which point I will probably see what the collection is now worth.

Very interesting post. I enjoyed reading it.

Don't discount analog as it still has a much better sound when done properly and that is the key and a very expensive key indeed...
Actually something I'd forgotten for years. As a young teen for my first stereo system I built a big pair of bass reflex speakers. Then a valve stereo amp from a kit. I got enormous pleasure from the end product and started my vinyl collection.

The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died! Just like LIFE!
ahhh yes....ATARI, how I missed you so much

When I was a teenager in the 60's, I remember our TV went out several times. They had at the local convenience stores, a TV Tube Tester. My Dad would look in the back of the TV and try to find a tube that was black like it might have burnt out. He would take several tubes down to the store and test them. He usually didn't find one that was bad. Then the fun came when he would get home and try to remember where the tubes went in the TV.
I did that as a kid. Finding the bad tube in a TV or radio usually was as easy as looking at the tubes to see which ones didn't light, yank it, (all metal tubes got yanked period) and take to the drugstore to test them (the test was primitive but was usually effective). I would replace any that failed the test and that almost always fixed the set. I learned the "fun" way to keep my hand away from the fly back coil lead going to the CRT (I swear the coil got its name from the reaction of the people who got too cozy with it).

My brothers and I would volunteer to go with our Dad when he took the tubes to check at Thrifty's. And what do you know, hey Dad, triple ice cream cones are 15 cents

Oh, yeah! I remember those tripple scoop ice cream cones at Thrifty and Skaggs Drugs (Thrifty had better ice cream). I haven't see the double scoop cones in years.

It's interesting that most stereo places still offer turntables. Like here for instance....quite a selection. And when you look & see that some of then are in the $400 - $700 dollar price range.

Turntables at Crutchfield.com

VPI Industries Inc.

American made precision design and one of many truly great analog products. One can't imagine the sound that can come from clean pristine vinyl through a proper system of equal resolution. It can be for many a life altering moment, I've had many and my budget won't allow me to get real deep but my systems are what I consider high mid-fi.
