    The size of my analog music collection dictates that turntable playback represents at minimum 50% of my listen time and about 75% of my annual music spend.

    This is not likely to change until high definition downloads are mainstream and far more common than today. I still buy cd's if I really want the music, but my first choice is to first see if there is a hi def download or vinyl available before buying the crappy plastic disk.

    Hey there, Tim and Dave!!!

    While I enjoy most music media, vinyl speaks to my soul.

    Well, I still use one. In fact, it never ceases to amaze me how much I still use one.

    I must admit I hardly ever buy new vinyl these days, though. It's increasingly more and more just a method of listening to old classics which I don't own on digital. But sometimes, with some records that are 30-35 years old, I'm just left spellbound. It can still knock out a great subjective performance, no question, though technically it sucks, also no question!

    I just purchased the Pro-Ject Debut III. I previously have never really paid much attention to vinyl. I got a pretty good deal on the turntable so I figured I would try it.

    Congrat's. It's a good 'table, that rewards upgrades on the cart and RIAA front. You will be amazed how much difference a good RIAA makes!

    I almost only listen to vinyl.I have some 500 cDs, so I do have a decent silver fribee spinner, but almost all my purchases are vinyl, and as I have moved through several system through the years, vinyl seemed always to please me more. Current system is a Michell Orbe with an Audiomods arm, Ortofon Rondo Bronze cart, and a DIY tube RIAA with stepup trafos.
