I got back into the vinyl venue two years ago when I set up my two channel system. I purchased a Music Hall MMF-5 for around $500. Shortly thereafter, very shortly, in fact, I learned the hard way that Beefeater martinis, wives and brand new turntables do not make a good combination. I have not been able to listen to any vinyl since then, but I guess we had a good time that night, or so my wife keeps assuring me.
