I think he also realizes the limitations of having to go out and physically buy vinyl, then store it somewhere, vs. using his 200 disc cdp or his iPod and not have a block of space taken up on his shelves for the physical media.

In essence, it was a novelty at the time he was purchasing new audio gear, which has now died off even for him.

Pretty blue tubes.....the aesthetic appeal of an amp is enough to make one "hear" an improvement or difference in sound.

I don't have a turntable. I do have a (one) vinyl album that has not ever made it to CD. What is the best way to get a "rip" of the album to digital?

I googled for vinyl ripping services and there are a few out there. Does anyone have any experiences with this?

I am looking for a very good "audiophile" quality transfer to digital.
