Oooh, this looks good - I have sadly still got over 300 LP's and about 400 singles (From 70's and 80's mostly).
Just cant bear to get rid of them...................

I was seriously considering saving up for one of these gadgets as I've got a huge Lp collection that I'm still adding too. But I'm finding so many of these are now available on CD's and also as mp3's online that it probably wouldn't be financially viable. So no it won't be on my Christmas list this time. 8)

yeah that is true Prue but think of this too

many of your LPs ARE available on CD but how much? in HMV I see plenty of CDs that I recognise that were LPs, now going for £10 - £15 - some even more

HMV seem to say "look we have everything you could want"

"if you want it ..... PAY £ £ £"

another thing is that there are a good half dozen LPs that I love to bits that I have never seen on CD, I have even tried ordering them on CD at WHSMITH etc to find they were deleted from the catalogue years ago

I haven't got the ittUSB Turntable ....... yet but I'm very tempted

to say the least :wink:
