I don't have any records. That was just a cool photo that I found online. lol
I wouldn't mind a nice record player though. Then, I would have to start a record collection and so on. lol
lolThat's a deep hole to fall in. I'd avoid it if you can
A "nice" record player starts around $1200 or so (Mine was $1700 and isn't considered a high tier record player by any means). Then the records are a whole other story. 70-80s metal can be expensive if you're looking for the real good pressings, most rock/metal records were used for rolling trays and coasters back in the day, so the Mint and Near Mint stuff is hard to come by. If you just go buy a new pressing, then you may as well just buy CDs or use MP3s. Most new records are just digital files, cut into a record. Not a single analog piece to most of them anymore. A trained ear can definitely hear it. The sound is just all squashed and compressed compared to a AAA pressing (Analog recording Analog mixing, and Analog mastering)
90s Metal is $$$$$. They are all pretty rare, as hardly any were pressed. In the 90s everyone was buying CDs.
Yeah,.....I'm staying clear of the rabbit hole for sure.
If I got the originals, I wouldn't play them, just collect them. Second pressings, I wouldn't be as fussy about and would play them.
How many records do you have?
