the mrs went out for the afternoon and this evening with her friends

i was gonna do some work in the garden but it rained :) shame, so i thought i would go up in the loft as there was a couple of things that needed to go up and i wanted to have a route about.

anyway i found my old pioneer record deck....which got me thinking there are a few old albums ive got that ive never been able to get on cd / mp3 etc so down it came and rigged it up to the current technics separates system i have.

then went into the garage and got my 4 boxes of lp's what a brilliant afternoon ive been listening to stuff never released on cd and a couple that i have bought the cd and i reckon the vynal does sound better even with crackles and pops lol

im gonna sort out audio cable tomorrow and mp3 the albums i want with adobe audition.

better than gardening anyway.....

I'll bet the mp3 transfers don't give you as much satisfaction as the original vinyl.

I saw a small turntable in Currys the other day selling for £29, I was very tempted to buy it as I've got a few hundred albums in a cupboard.

Are they original Elvis releases from before 1970?

All my records are either Thrash meal or Heavy Rock, my pride and joy is an original print of Lynyrd Skynyrds first album called 'Pronounced', it's worth fook all but I'm very proud of it :)
