And now something completely different:

That is a bit (much) contradictory to the article.

Expense? What expense? I've bought 1000 lp's last 2 years (approximately) that cost me (be honest now... Ebay is sneaky) €2000, sold a bunch of doubles for €500, so €1,500. That would have cost me otherwise €15,000 (being modest at €15/release). So even with the expense of a 'new' TT and high-end cart and the record cleaner I still consider that a bargain. And inconvenience... as if a skipping cd is convenient... or a stampcollection. Or a pet. Or watching the brainlaundrymachine every evening. Real men have a hobby, not out of convenience but to get away from the wife. cool.gif

Here another pic of the cart I once got thrown in for free (packaging is from my Dynavector). If you never do anything you will never get lucky.

The picture I posted wasn't meant to be as a comment to the article. I just thought it is a funny picture describing how some people might see the turntable and vinyl hobby and people who does it. Sorry for the confusion.

I got that. smily_headphones1.gif But funny pictures tend to strike a certain nerve where people know they're making excuses for what they know is kind of unreasonable. And this cartoon shows exactly (again) how the record industry pushed the cd by emphasizing precisely the wrong issue. Related to the article, I see it as a false propaganda of them to get us sheeple to buy the same stuff 3rd time over again. Buy some new stuff [insert rude exclamation of your own preference here].

I have seen it al happen, and I have always maintained the position that vinyl just gives more musical enjoyment though better sound quality. You don't want to know how many odd looks, remarks and ridicule I got in over 30 years. Like I have a screw loose or something. Just like the comment in the cartoon. That's why I don't like the cartoon. It really irritates me in a sore spot.

I thought it was funny.  It only hurts when I laugh.

I know that feeling: some of my friends, relatives and co-workers found it weird why anyone still wants to continue (or return to) using vinyl when we have The Internet, Spotify and YouTube now.

A 35 plus lbs of paper weight has been on my desk for over a year, I have not figured out how to use it yet!

That's a lot of buttons for a turntable biggrin.gif My player has just one button which I never use since I don't have any 45 rpm records.
Have you looked Vinylengine for manual?

You just put the paper under it so they don't get blown around or fall off the desk.

I think the Chemical Brothers made the manual...



And this is what's in it...


But you probably have to do this first, after plugging it in of course.

There is a catch 22, though - one particular evening on ebay last year, I was offering total in excess of 1K for three discs I was after -  yet could not spend a dime. Whatever the amount , I got outbid in the last second (or less, obviously a bidding bot with unlimited funds ) - and my offer was more than twice higher than  the offer

of the honorary mention 3rd person.


Now I know maybe why your moniker!  Serious investment.
