Picked up an old set of Klipsch Kg4's and have been rocking out ever since. Anyone have some cool old LP's that might be rare, or just into the hobby in general. It's fun actually getting something with a record that you buy besides just some digital file stored on a computer.

My little fun area:






Before I hooked it up around my TV.

Love the "old School" KG4's. I used to have a set of Forte's that I got in 1988. I miss them, but I am still hooked on my Polk RTA 11's I got in 1991. I'll never get rid of them.

Like an idiot, I threw away my Philips GA222 turntable years ago. Not sure what I was thinking. Oh yeah, I was thinking vinyl is dead, CD's are the future
Thankfully I've kept my Yamaha CR1020 receiver. My 15 y/o daughter likes vinyl, so I bought a cheapie turntable from DAK (another blast from the past). We've had fun playing my old albums and shopping pawn shops and vintage store searching for albums. I'm on the lookout for a Yamaha YP-D8 turntable to keep the CR1020 company. I still have my old DiscWasher too.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions at all--happy to share my own experiences in audio!
@Kweisner - Very nice Vandersteen Model 5s! I have Vandy Model 2s and his Model 2W subwoofer. I'd love to go to Model 5s some day, but they're a little rich for my blood these days. I'm running a Thorens turntable. I'd like to hear more about your turntable setup.

Have you ever talked to Vandersteen himself? He's a really interesting guy.

I still listen to vinyl all the time with my girlfriends dad. I request most songs on vinyl as opposed to CD's. Sometimes i have to resort to CD's because what i requested has never been open/played.

Also, being only slightly older than me, you may be happy to know that Incubus recently released every one of their albums on Vinyl a few months back. If i had any extra cash (not going into the MC or the car) I would have scooped them all up myself already!

Good luck!

I had a great system back in college but once the family started coming in, the speakers were too big for my wife's liking. And with surround sound, that made it more difficult too.

Tried the Adcom 3 channel surround processor for awhile but eventually just too complicated and a lot of adjustments constantly.

I just put it away though....too nice of stuff!

Carver TFM-45 Amp
Dahlquist DQ-30 speakers
Mark Levingson Pre-amp
Carver Tube CD player
Pioneer Vinyl record player

I should bring that stuff out and hook it all back up again. It sounded SOOOOO.... nice!!

I have had a Sony turntable that has been very reliable and lots of good vinyl. My mom has the cool setup though. McIntosh tube amp, preamp, tuner, and turntable in a console. Absolutely beautiful set of equipment.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.
