Nothing quite like vinyl. My parents have a large collection of records and, luckily, have pretty good taste in music so I grew up with vinyl. There's also a Half-Priced book-store that I used to go to that sold used vinyl (which actually used to be a screen name of mine). I bought a bunch of Frank Sinatra albums for about 25 cents each.

Thanks for the replies.

I am looking to get my record player today. It's a cheaper one from Target. For now, I am only interested in pursuing it casually so it's all I need. If I get seriously into it, I may need an upgrade. Either way, I am excited to start spinning some records.

Personally, I'm addicted to vinyl! I collect mainly 60's and 70's Progressive/Classic Rock. There is nothing else that sounds like vinyl. Easily the best way to listen to music, especially if you got the huge sound-isolation headphones. I'm currently looking for a new, high-quality record player with a high-quality needle, and that plays at 78 RPM. I need to hear everything the vinyl has to offer! Only problem is looking for the right one. The record player I have now is a Technosonic player. It's good for now, but I know I can get a much better quality player.

Here's a list of all of my records:

Nice collection!

I just won a few on ebay. 3 Kansas albums: Monolith, Point of Know Return, and Leftoverture and 2 Boston albums: self-titled and Third Stage. I feel like the only appropriate thing to listen to on vinyl is old clssic rock.

That was more a joke than real. But I particularly enjoy classic rock, so why not re-start my collection there? Plus, all of my old records are all classic rock, so it is a form of nostalgia for me.

I have like 45-50 records but I don't own a player. I really should get one.

The only thing I hate is shipping on Vinyl is ridiculous. I can find an album on vinyl for $5-10 but then I have to pay $11 to ship the damn thing. Or...I can buy it on CD and get the same music, $10 shipping included. When I see them in person, I pick them up. Not only do they have a different sound but I think they look a lot cooler than CDs. I'm going to San Francisco in May and there's a really great store out there that carries a lot of vinyl for cheap.

Ahhhh, vinyl. Nothing like that old record with a slight hint of pop at the beginning of the song. I've been dj'ing since '97 and have well over 500 records. I've swapped and traded quite a bit plus I've sold a ton of them. If I still had them, I would have over 700.

The best place to find a cheap deck is the pawn shop or look in you local paper's classifieds. Also, check with some of your local small time stereo shops.

Next up for me will be the Pioneer CDJ-100MK3. They are sick. I'm using 2 Technics and a DJM-500 now.

I'll always keep my vinyl though. I'll prob bump some of my tracks over to cd once I get the equipment to do so.

My record collection varies from old school punk to Led Zeppelin. I have some great stuff. Went into a Goodwill in Jax a couple years ago and found some f'ing gems.

So:

Pawnshops
Small Time Local Stereo Shops
Local Paper's Classifieds

And just ask around. You might get lucky.

I agree the classifieds is where I found most of mine but the only draw back to that is they're usually in lots of 50 and up, so you'll probably end up with some bullshit but you can get lucky, I sure have.
