    Nice job Randy. 300 hours seems a little excessive to me, but who knows?

    I am having fun relearning and playing around with vinyl. While I totally expect digital to remain my main source, I have been listening primarily to vinyl that past weeks. It is fun and sounds amazingly good; of course not close to my digital, but surprisingly good for how little I have put into the vinyl playback equipment so far. I would say under $1400 including the Record Doctor, SimAudio, etc. I doubt I could have done as well in a full digital setup in that range (considering DAC, server, software, etc.), and I am equally sure that if I had put as much into the vinyl as I have into my digital, in total, that they would be on par to each other.

    So it proves to me that it is a personal preference, and in my case the convenience of digital will win out, but the vinyl is fun and allows me to re-discover old favorites that are not available in digital!

    Re: Why no turntable?

    Ok, Mike and crew (all you guys are the crew), I still love digital, but I have also fallen in love with my new vinyl! Yes, it is definitely more picky, and more fiddling... fine tuning etc. But listening to Alan Parson's Eye In The Sky remastered from original tapes pressed on virgin 180g vinyl is like... DAMMMMM ... ok I get it... and now wondering how high of a cartridge can the U-Turn handle? I still think it is an amazing table.... Ortofon 2M Black???

    I actually looked up my old Grace F9E Ruby... was reminiscing how much I loved that cartridge.

    You guys win... ok

    Ha! When I started this thread I was up against much opposition. NOW, FINALLY, you guys are enjoying another side of the hobby (even if some of you donít want to give me credit for the nudge over the edge). Itís not better, itís different. And that was the whole point. Variety.
