I just purchased my first turntable in about 30 years. It's an entry level Music Hall...the 2.1. I've been very impressed at how good (used) vinyl can sound. I purchased the Pretenders 1st album on Nautilus records...a half-speed masted LP. Sounds much better than the CD of the same album. BTW...the LP was $4.00 in mint condition.
I'm not saying that all vinyl sounds better than CD. Some does sound great, though. I have some great sounding CD's, too. The newly remastered Bee Gee's 1st album on CD sounds superb! Anyway,the turntable has been a fun addition to my system and opens up another opportunity to experience music...which is what its all about.
