Yep, I have a Scoutmaster and love it. Fantastic TT. It produces the deepest black background I have ever heard from a TT.

Reminds me...I want that Kind of Blue box set...

don't do it, man.
that box set is riddled with problems.
the discs are housed by a piece of cardboard that actually scratches them.  i bought and returned 3 of these box sets before i gave up on getting a scratch-free version.
not to mention many reports of the blue vinyl having lots of bubbles and imperfections.

Yeah, I have the 180gram 2011 pressing. I would bet money that the spindle hole is dead center, there is zero lateral movement when the needle is tracking.
 
@ProcessJunkie, thanks again for the compliments.

Would someone inform me exactly what one would need if starting their turntable journey? I always find turntables on Craigslist and they look simply fantastic (anything wood really haha).

I know you need a phonograph but how would you connect that to say...bifrost/lyr/HD650? I've always been so curious. Something about turntables seem fascinating and well, it just seems so perfect seeing an actual vinyl spin next to you.

you would need a phono stage / phono preamp.
and a set of rca cables.
 
which turntable you buy greatly affects the particulars above.
