    I generally priced what i have and i have over $400worth, I thought some would be worth more then they are but i was mistaken. According to my dad and grandma, my grandma has an assload in her attick, sad thing is, no one can get to them and her house will probably burn to the ground before anyone can get them:wtc:

    I only have 12" and 7" records

    Ive been djing for about 12 years so I have accumulated quite a few records. It started off as buying the music I wanted to play, but now a days, if i see a stack of vinyl at a garage sale or someones house, i try to pick it up and add it to the ever growing collection i have at home.

    i've been buying vinyl for just under 2 years and i've already spent (and made) a good deal of money as well as find awesome music i would have never come across without a turntable.
    i've gotten rid of at least a hundred records over the last few months but i currently still have a few hundred records. very few are older than 10 or 15 years old, so it's mostly just modern music on the format i prefer.

    yessir.

    i collect funk/soul/r&b and eclectic stuff. not so much for resell value though.

    it's a hobby since i dig for records for mixtapes or to make hip hop music out of and stuff.

    It gets addictive.
    I have 3 turntables.
    I always visit local Goodwill store every week.
    Just find you a nice vintage turntable if you are just going to casually listen to records.
    I bought a nice Akai AP-D2 Direct Drive turntable and changed out the cartridge/stylus to a Audio Technica AT70L.
    TT = $36
    Cartridge/stylus = $30

    I got a pretty good table at a yard sale 2 years ago for $8. Like zeromancer said, just get a new cartridge/stylus for $20-40 and it's good as new.

    I've just started buying my fave old records, no question they sound better. I've found a great shop not to far from me in Manchester which has a great selection. I love Island records, Free, U2, Bob Marley. And I love the old compilation albums, Fill Your Head with Rock, Bumpers etc. I just read that EMI are re-issuing all the Sex Pistols singles on 7 inch. I'm gonna get those.

    My husband and I have a big collection from when we both were growing-up. But we still add to that collection.

    that mouth of the architect album is pretty gnarly. i've got panopticon and absence of truth too but i haven't listened to them in like 6 months.

    gonna go record shopping tonight for the first time in about a month now that i've got some cash

    I picked up 13 albums today at a local thrift store.
    The best find was Jean Michel Jarre - Oxygen in mint condition for $1 :bowdown::bowdown:

    i wouldn't drop $30 on "altar" but if it ever ends up in a used bin for less than $10, i'd pick it up for the song "etna" alone
