Thumbs up Hooked on Vinyl (Again)

I recently rediscovered my love for vinyl records. I came across an old stereo from 1990 at Goodwill. It has a turntable, which works I was happy to find. So we dug out some of our old records...which sounded great.....except for the hissing and skips and such.

So I decided to replace some of those old worn out records with some nicer shape originals, some new stuff and what ever else I could find in decent condition on the cheap. After some research, I figured if I was going to do this, I may as well upgrade the stereo too. I was able to score a few different nice components, cheaply, so I spent the money on a new turntable. What a difference that made! Nice speakers, new turntable, nice receiver.....those old records sound so different now compared to when I was a kid. I hear so much more now, its like hearing a lot of them for the first time again. I just love the depth and warmth of vinyl so much more Ive found. And records can be had cheap.....mostly.

Now being the collector I am, Ive discovered test pressings. They can be cheap, they can be expensive. It seems that part of record collecting is the Wild West right now, with no rhyme or reason that I can see. Which is great, because Im picking up pieces that I feel are undervalued. Even if they are not, they are classics which I love to listen to. And it appeals to the collector side of me to own a more rare item, kinda the best of both worlds for me. I listen to the regular record and collect the rare copies of said record.

I still buy cds and cassettes, listen to MP3s, but nothing is as satisfying as listening to good old vinyl to me.

Anyone else back on the vinyl wagon?
