  • I was one of those who had vinyl without a turntable, but now I have a turntable again! Of course, the rest of the stereo is in the garage and needing repairs before I can play the vinyl. =)

    While I have a couple of collectors albums that will never see a needle, I will definitely be playing the rest of the albums in the future!
