Yes the Dynavector has great synergy with the VPI Tonearms:
And of course Tubes and Vinyl go hand in hand:

I think though, some of our younger members might not be aware that albums back in the day did suffer from many quality issues such as warping and would scratch and wear down over time (especially if you lent them to my friends back then ). Looking back, nostalgia can really paint a rosey picture, but things weren't perfect with LPs too. At least with CDs, they all sound the same and don't deteriorate with time.
I remember when I was about 9 year old, me and my brother used to play our Sex Pistol records on my dads hifi. One day my mum took the time to listen to the lyrics... (it was "Belsen was a Gas") and she went ballistic! Made us scratch all of the records so they were unplayable. Trouble is, we still played them when she was out.. scratches n all. Really damaged my Dads expensive needle!
Moral of the story is. Don't have kids if you want to keep your hifi in tip top condition. I'm finding this out now...
Your way over thinking this.
CDs and hard drives aren't indestructible either.
