The Wotton Discussion Board

Wildcard!

A place where things not fitting above and not directly involving Wotton or humourous, offbeat, "New Year Resolutions" and things that wouldn't be out of place in a chatroom.

Just following on from Tangram's comment on another thread... it got me thinking. Do people like to listen to music on shiny sliver discs, or do you love the nostalgia of vinyl?



And if so then what do you play it on?

Yay, retro.

I've got a Rega Planar 3 with RB300 tonearm (smigger's old one), Ortofon 510 cart, Pro-Ject Phono Box II, Arcam AVR-250 amplifier and Mordaunt-Short Avant 908 speakers.

ABBA's Greatest Hits sounds lovely on it!

well you can't buy my turntable anymore as it is an extremely rare collector's item and worth almost 4 figures! smile
