Chris,

I always hesitate to send off advice on an internet forum. That said, all of the Crosley stuff I've seen is rubbish. Depending on what you intend to do you might consider a few possibilities.

If you want to go from a vinyl source to a digital file there are several ok usb turntables out there (Audio Technica I've been told makes a pretty good one) and while Crosley offers these units they are inferior and will make quick work of your vinyl. If you just want a turntable to play vinyl you are going to purchase there are lots of good ones out there, especially with the vinyl resurgence that has taken place over the last decade of so.

I guess the bottom line I'm driving at is that buying the software (vinyl) gets pricey, and it's usually a good idea to buy the best hardware you can afford up front.

Just my 2 cents from the peanut gallery.

I agree on getting the best you can afford. I did a lot of research trying to get the most bang for my buck. After a couple of weeks of reading I settled on an Audio Technicia AT-LP60 and I havenít regretted it.

Wow, thats a pretty sweet set up. And the whole plug and play makes it very user friendly. It gets good reviews and seems like it would be a really good no nonsense unit.

The Klipsch company has been a high level audiophile producer (especially in the realm of speakers - the Klipsch horn corner standing unit can produce some of the most amazing bass notes I've ever heard) for a long, long time.

They've partnered with a turntable maker here and at $600 I can't see how you could go wrong if you are simply looking to play some vinyl you have had stashed away for a while.

Could I make one suggestion? Before you plunk down the 600 beaners check out your vinyl. Did you take care of them? It would be a downer I think to get all reved up and when you spin that first old disc be crushingly disappointed with a hiss, pop and scratch filled listening experience. Even investing several times the $600 in an audio system will not make the vinyl new again. Just a heads up.

Other than that I'd say the product is a pretty attractive unit, and like I said, in this day and age $600 is very reasonable.

I still haven't pulled the trigger on my record player but.....

I'm in Sweetwater Texas for a funeral and on my morning walk. It's 9AM and this antique store is opening up. I bought three LPs for $2.50 each, looking at the records they seem to be in fine shape.
Fun stuff!
Larry

Nice scores there Larry! I love when I can find good vinyl cheap.

I find collecting albums fun and a bit addicting. Itís kinda taking over for my sports collecting at the moment. Iím loving every second of it, learning and hunting.

My collection has grown quickly, because records can be had for cheap. So I found a great site which is a gold mine for information and for keeping track of what you own (plus a whole lot more). Check out Discogs if you havenít already.

When I dug out my old vinyl a few years ago and bought a new turntable my daughter bought me this gift.
If you are a Van fan, or even if you are not, this is one great vinyl.

And look at that band!! Pee Wee Ellis, long time member of James Brown's band. He wrote "In a Cold Sweat" and "Say it Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud". The late Pete Bardens formed a band in the 1960's called Shotgun Express which featured Rod Stewart, Peter Green and Mick Fleetwood. He would also record solo and as a member of Camel. Close with Fleetwood who credited him for kickstarting his musical career. Peter Van Hooke was in Mike + the Mechanics for ten years. Bobby Tench was a member of the Jeff Beck Group and Humble Pie.

Canít say Iím a fan Richard, but its cool as hell your daughter purchased that for you. Sounds like she knows her Dad pretty well, which is awesome. Little gifts and connections like that with our kids, no matter their age, is priceless.

My daughter knows Iím back into vinyl, so Iím hoping for a record or two for Christmas.
