These look pretty sweet. I'm assuming all I'd need to do is plug them into an existing amp?

I know this has been covered before, but I don't want to wade through this thread...

I'm finally ditching the Crosley and getting a proper turntable. Assuming I buy these speakers, and I use an old Sony HTIB amp unit, what's a good (read: $200 or less) turntable that can satisfy my simple needs?

Yeah, I just swapped the cables from my old speakers to the new ones. They were already wired up to my receiver.

I'd love to get that but not for the price they're charging. I already have the Mondo Mr. Freeze 7" that was a SDCC exclusive last year and the die cut Bat shaped 12" plus the three La La Land CD releases so I can't really justify dropping $250 on that set. I'd mostly want it for the covers to potentially frame up but I think I'll just take a chance at an actual print from the series someday (I have one on the way from Mondo and have another from a different artist).

Nice. May get that depending on the price as I've been thinking of buying the individual soundtracks for a while. I wonder if they'll be available outside the box set too or not.

I agree. I don't think I can justify that price. But I love the look of the set.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Got the vinyl Bowie set today for 219 locally. My wife says it's my Christms present and I am done for the year!

Also thought I'd show you guys what the system is looking like these days. My dad brought over his new full frame Nikon and 24-70mm lens. Thought I'd get some better pics than my usual iPhone shots.

Yeah it's definitely a nice set and as a huge fan of the show I'd love to own it but it's just a bit too much. If I didn't own all the releases I do I'd be more open to considering it but with everything I already have I don't feel like I need to drop that kind of money on it.

Think I'm gonna give these guys a shot and get one of their units.

Question:

Do I really need to upgrade the components? Is a higher-priced cartridge going to make a big difference? What about the platter?

I'd say yes to the upgrades. But if you can only do one, do the platter.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Was at Amoeba over the weekend and scooped up the Trick r treat orange vinyl score. Of course Waxwork announced on their Facebook page that the score would be only $15 from their site. I paid $25 for mine, so whatever.

Spoiler:



I preordered the John Carpenter remixed album from Sacred Bones directly and opted for the blue & white swirl limited edition. That one is limited to 150 copies and their deluxe limited edition is limited to 350 copies. I used paypal and used the "pay after delivery" option. That shit comes in handy.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I recently got the reissue of David Bowie Heathen.

Also, the MFSL editions of Miles Davis that have come out recently are ridiculously great. I have most of them now. I still need Round About Midnight, Kind of Blue, Miles In the Sky, and Filles de Kilimanjaro. Highly recommended for jazz fans.
