    ok, it's time for me to sound like an old curmudgeon. i'm 36. do you people have any idea how hard it is to find a stereo receiver with a PHONO PLUG on it? i know you young kids like your hippity-hopitty music on cd and your rock and or roll music on cd but there are still some of us who like 33 1/3 lp records.....and i like mono mixes better. you aint never heard "sgt. peppers" or "between the buttons" until you have heard the mono lp mixes. i fortunatley found a receiver on ebay and bought 2 of them. hi-fi buys, circuit city, best buy ......nada. yeah i know i could have bought a pre-amp but i like to complain more. you kids and your loud rock and roll cd's. in my day we liked a big record and the big piece of artwork. as phil spector said......before he said "not guilty".......BACK TO MONO!!!!!!

    My wife gave me a TEAC record player/CD recorder unit
    for Xmas. Great idea! I unpacked it and discovered that
    it had Aux Line in, but there was no LINE OUT.

    What freaking genius designed this thing? The thing costs
    399 dollars and it doesn't have 2 phono plugs so I can use
    it instead of my regular turntable. What would that have cost,
    another 50 cents?

    I hear ya on the hifi's A buddy of mine gave me a new
    Yamaha receiver he was getting rid of. I can see why.
    The new stuff is craaaaap. My old Nikko was 100% better,
    I am going to have that rehabbed and put it back into
    service. Or look for a used Marantz or something decent.
