    Thank's that did the trick! Great looking system you have there. I haven't had the pleasure of hearing something that beautiful in years.(Decades?)

    Daayyuumm. That's sweet. My turntable, parts, and cartridges all together would go for roughly $2k. I do have a second identical turntable in a box in the closet just in case something goes wrong, too. Maybe I'll set both up next to each other and have turntable twins!

    It's an addictive hobby - and love of music: all music from Beethoven to Brubeck to Dylan to CCR to Hendrix to Starship to Sinatra, Sibelius and Alan Jackson.

    I just bought a turntable for a grandson (music major at ODU and hooked on vinyl) - it's a Music Hall setup for $250 - cartridge, arm and all - the beauty of it is that it sounds good and has a USB cable/interface so you can archive your vinyl straight to DVD or computer. Several other audio electronics companies make in-line black boxes for about $175 that incorporate a USB output in addition to line level RCA interconnect - used for the same archiving in an existing turntable setup. Karen burns vinyl music to her iPod.

    Brandon, you must be pretty hard-core to invest in a cartridge like that.
    Not so long ago, I pulled out my Floyd vinyl collection and got a quote from my daughter..."dad, CD's were HUGE back then!"

    So, to ask the question to our vinyl folks out there...how many paid extra for the master recording?

    Japanese pressings were fairly easy to find - Tower Records used to carry several different pressings of the same album. Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab was the originator of the label "Original Master Recording" - I have 40 or 50 unopened MFSL albums from the 80's and 90's. The Dire Straits album Brothers In Arms - I have five different pressings of that one alone. Even today it's amazing what you run across at yard sales or used vinyl shops.

    I dropped a bundle over the years at the Tower near GWU in DC. 2 huge floors of nothing but vinyl.

    The AR's are sure have gained a lot of popularity among civilians. I never thought anything would ever be able to de-throne the AK platform.

    Is amazing how mainstream these ar's have gotten. I was pretty jazzed to get mine new in the box considering they quit making this model. I'd always grab a pistol if i heard noise in the dwelling, but with that eotech 512 on the AR, the target acquisition and accuracy is amazing. plus the bullets tend to tumble a little not being as bad for wall penetration as I'd originally suspected.

    Re: What do you collect?

    I'm pretty sure I've mentioned before... My grandpa is an audiophile (with tons of money) and he and I are very close. I get 90% of my stuff from him, but I occasionally make an investment myself. Most of this ridiculously high $$$ stuff I have sure hasn't come out of my broke as pocket. Anywho, here's a picture of all of the cartridges. There's my Grado cartridge, the new Empire 1000 SE/X, the Ortofon FF 15 XE MkII cartridge, and the green Nagaoka. That one's interesting because my grandpa has a friend who worked at Nagaoka for a long time, and that particular cartridge is a prototype that was never put into production. Then those are my brushes. The Tonar one I picked up online for like $30, and the Hunt one is a little older, but it has a large felt pad in the center of the brush, and I use it for cleaning the records.

    One I refused to part with in the move South. I was only able to keep a very small handful.

    Re: What do you collect?

    Weapons? Ooh, I have oodles of those. Greatest investment I could make. Sneaking them around in guitar cases sounds like the shenanigans I would get into, if I could get it to work, but I have never had to and usually do not need to sneak them about. From experience though, in one particular circumstance where weaponry for a small outfit of us was required and we has no idea as to how to get them where we needed them to be, sneaking weapons into someplace works best in the particularly inconspicuous hiding place beneath a lady's dress. Virtually no one would suspect to look there and it was convenient. Alas, my youth...good times with bad company.
