    My mom has around 300 old frisbee type things ;)

    I would use them but I have no idea how to use the record player.

    Hmmm, I've got over 100 records in my loft, I've managed to get copies of most of them on CD now. I was quite happy with my record collection!


    It's funny picture discs just aren't the same any more!!


    It's been ages since I last played records - I've got about 6 albums next to the stereo just now. Before that it'd been even longer since I played any, and when I tried the first one, and it sounded funny I suddenyl remembered that you've got to set the speed right! Oooops!:D
     
  4. I'm 19 and listen to the odd record...... plus records are coming back in, i have records of bands that released an album last year.. (cannot say the album title... it begins with C)

    :D:D

  5. I'm 19 and pretty much only buy vinyl. I asked for (and got) a record player last christmas (2001) and since then I've bought 34 vinyl albums, 10 12" singles and a few 45s.

    Music sounds better when it scratches and pops.

    Analgoue music has it's place - kinda warm and cosey. But I must admit to have enjoyed going digital with music - even though it's too damned expensive!

    Used record shops and thrift stores are great ways to get more wax. Records are cool.

    You know, I've heard that before. In fact, the last time I heard it was just a few weeks ago and I wondered how long it will be before we see CDs with "digitally added cracks, pops and hisses"?
     
  10. I still wouldn't buy CDs. You scratch a CD and that's it, the thing won't play. You scratch a record and all you get is a bit of a pop or it sticks and you can still shift the needle on and still hear the music.
     
  11. Not an issue if the CD is cared for. I have been buying CD's for 10 years and sratches havnt been an issue, the first CD I ever bought and my most listened to CD, 'Nevermind' is still perfect. Out of 200 or so CD's, only one or two have a problem with scratches, but on decent stereos they work fine. And the CD scratch repair stuff you can buy is actually pretty good.

    I have about 100 records, I enjoy looking around for rare ones, I recently purchased a mono version of Bob Dylan's 'Freewheelin', a very rare find.
