Maintaining and playing records is definitely a pain in the ass compared to digital, but it's more fun to me. Not necessarily from a sound perspective, but from the thrill of finding and playing a really hard to find record you've been looking for that was made when your parents were still in school... It's fun to me!
That, and I "grew up" listening to vinyl. Not that I listened to music often, but when I did, it was through vinyl or an 8 track player! Haha, fond memories of those as well...
I found my first classic rock album on 8 track actually when I was ~5...
Ah, the simple times...
Well, it seems I have a condition similar to Jgray's where I ramble on when I'm tired....
It's probably easier to find those kinda stuff (rare/old records) in the states, don't think nearly as many people in my town share the same hobby due to availability.
*searches 8 track*
OH THIS. I've seen this before but never used one. Same for vinyl :<
My dad was really into audio as well, but mainly in the form of CDs and cassettes. For audio, I think the most 'exotic' thing we own is the gigantic laser disc. And then there's that one size down, size right between LD and CD.
Don't we all? ;)
Totally understand what you meant by the flower shop dude now after checking out the first episode lol.
I'll take this opportunity to showcase my new wallet.
My old one was tattered and full of holes for over 2 years now, and I finally decided to buy a new one.
The build and print quality are decent. Only bad thing about it is that the coin compartment is both rather small and not sealed off properly, making it too easy for coins to roll out when you don't want it, and too difficult to get the coins out when you do want it.
omg nice >_<
Do your waterfall/decay graphs make sense? I never see any significant ringing in mines and find it weird. Thus never posting them.
Except for the low bass due to background noise and all in my room.
