I pick up a lot of mine at Antiques stores for anywhere from $2-$5, as well. I find most used record stores a bit steep.

Yeah, but in my limited experience, unless you get really lucky, you're getting badly kept copies.  The warmth gets lost in the pops and clicks. ;) 

 

I just don't have the time and/or will to do the hunting I'd need to do to put together a meaningful collection.

Buy a record cleaner! Ticks and pops solved...

LOL...yeah, So I gotta get a decent table, decent cartrige, hunt down the vintage vinyl AND drop another $600 on a cleaner (which does nothing for scratches).

 

Lemme run that one past the boss. ;)

If you want to play you gotta pay...

There are different ways to clean vinyl BTW.

Too many to list here though.

A little searching and you can do it without breaking the bank.

Good luck.

FYI- As an owner of the pictured record cleaner I can testify to how good it is, and unfortunately that it does not "Solve" the tick & pop issue, help sure, but not solve.

I'll tell you what did, CD's tongue.gif

Yea it's a great record cleaner for sure, X3

A cheaper alternative is the Record Doctor II at $200. At least when I got mine years ago. Does the same as the VPI, but you have to spin it manually. Vacuum works like  charm.

Great cleaner but it's one ugly sucker. It's this big black ugly thig-a-ma-jig that has absolutely no SAF. Let alone, music lover AF. Sort of, like some members here evil_smiley.gif

You could get a Keith Monks RCM. It is a little prettier.
