Very well written, many valid points, argues both sides.
LARNIN’S FOR YELLABELLIEZ. btw, I’ve been looking to get a record player and I don’t really know what I’m looking for, what’s a good price range/brand?
Fish, oh sweet, naive Fish. RECORD PLAYERS ARE FOR CHILDREN. What you’re looking for is a turntable. I myself am actually in the market for a new one, as my current unit does not do my newly obtained classics their required justice. This one seems to be a good deal. Don’t bother getting a USB adapting one, it’ll be a shitty conversion anyway. If you do some searching you can find it for like 80 bucks online. Perfectly acceptable unit for a perfectly acceptable price, considering our needs as pseudo-audiophiles.
I read too that you can upgrade it if you want; new belts, needles, etc. for a better sound quality if the needs strikes.
