I remember picking up War Of The Worlds and Duran Duran Rio from a boot sale a few years ago for a quid each. Mint condition I might add. Also remember getting ELO Secret Messages as well, with the for radio purposes only stamp on too, but that was from a charity shop. Got loads more too

Only got Fear Factory's Genexus on vinyl for Christmas as family gave me money towards getting a new turntable.

In the end I plumped for a project debut carbon in gloss red.

I have decided for 2016 that all the music I will buy shall be on Vinyl, mainly because Amazon do that Auto-rip service, so I still get a digital copy and also it feels like I am getting more for my money.

Got a few albums on pre-order, shall post up some nice pictures when they arrive, but has anybody got any good suggestions for a beginners record player??

Don't bother with anything under £100 as it will be a waste.

Sony pslx300 for about £119 is ok for a budget unit giving you a USB connection for recording to a PC.

If you want something that's sounds better. A project elemental for about £159 is fantastic.

Or I have got a project debut 2 for sale as I have just upgraded to a new project carbon.

And I would advocate the virtues of direct drive over belt drive

Both systems have their plus points. I have always prefered belt drive over direct, but I'm not a DJ. The technics are the only none belt drive systems I would own. Unfortunately spares are drying up and getting more expensive and the new model is out of my budget range.

Thanks for the info, that Sony one looks perfect, thinking I might pick one up for my birthday in April.

Thought I would upload a few of my pickups from last years Record Store Day

Image

The cassette tape is a remake of the original Metallica "No Life Till Leather" demo, that was passed around during the tape trade scene.

And I think the 12" Vinyl Single was an American Record Store Day item that I picked up from Record Collector in Sheffield, has a nice etching on the back....did realise it was so dusty :(

Wow, I can't believe I missed that No Life Till Leather re-release! That's a must-have, even though I have an original copy.
That's the back of the Lords Of Summer 12", right? I haven't opened mine yet.

It is indeed Side B to Lords of Summer 12", haven't got anything to play my vinyl on yet, but I love opening them up and soaking it all in.

Really cool that you have an original No Life Till Leather, the re-release was the only thing that took my fancy from RSD 2015, luckily Record Collector in Sheffield didn't let me down and still had a few in the afternoon.
