    New budget modern stereo receiver or used pretty high rated rotel receiver?

    30 years of CDs

    Quote:   I seriously dount there will be any new developments of a new physical music format.  Therefore, SACD (as a strictly music format) was the end of the line.  You can say Elvis has left the building....although he's coming to SACD in December 2012 and January 2013.

    30 years of CDs

    Quote:   Long boxes were always made of cardboard, as far as I recall.  I think you are talking about the plastic jewel cases.  Some releases on CD went from the plastic jewel cases to digipak, the cardboard packaging with the plastic tray that holds the CD.  Personally, I hate the digipak.

    Picked up a Technics turntable for $8, what can you tell me about it?

    If everything works as it should, then it's a great price.  The Technics is a great "starter turntable".  It uses a P-mount cartridge, so there's no adjustments of any kind to make.  It's truly a "plug and play" unit.  Aside from that, get more records.   Btw, I owned the Technics SL-BD20, a...
