    We have a record player back at home. My parents had a HUGE record collection and back when I was little it was how they listened to music. I remember them always telling my brother and I not to touch the record when it was playing! That record machine went down the tubes years ago and my dad bought a new one for my mom. She doesn't use it often, but it's neat to play with.

    I can't afford to replace all my LPs with cds. Only problem is my turntable is belt driven and the belt has been shot for years. Finding replacements I know will work doesn't seem very easy.

    Still transferring from vinyl (at this pace I'll get finished about a decade after I auger in).

    Phillips Electronic 312 DC Servo Self Drive is, like Johnny Winter, still alive and well.
