In the days of a ipod consolidated music setup, i bet if you started at one end, you would not listen to the same song for atleast a year or two. Wow that is a big lp collection. I have meet a few guys over the years with that kind of devotion to vinyl. My friend Dave in Marysville wash, has such a collection.

I know people with music servers, and it's great to be able to call up a song from your easy chair, or pipe it to any room.
The big issue for me is that I have so many titles I would want to convert that I don't know where to start.

That's right, I'm a dinosaur (the last new format I invested in was DAT) but I like the zen that comes with LPs, CDs and even cassettes.
I do have an entry level MP3 player (a present from my teenage son which he filled with my favorite tunes) but I rarely use it.

At carverfest i was introduced to the squeezebox, and with lossless rips, my limited 14k hearing does not hear the difference between the cd and the rip unless i use my jolida cd player. Small but noticeable differences between the high end cd, and the simple squeezebox. For speaker building, hand down i love the squeezebox. For super critical, i like cds. Soon i will dive into records again.

Hey Zumbini, welcome back. Good to see you posting here as well as "there".

That's quite an impressive lp collection. It occurs to me that if you were to digitize it, starting at the upper left corner and working through, by the time you got finished you'd be .....dead!!

That same thought occurs to me every time I think about starting. I'll leave that to my son to do (or not) when he inherits my collection.

Thanks Angelo. It's not perfect (yet) but it'll do in a pinch. :lol:

I have considerably more LPs in another rack in the next room.

Here's a shot of the entire wall of my man cave.

The PA speakers are part of the band setup on the other side of the room.

Z, you a drummer? Whats your set? Other equipment? What's your band genre? Cover Original, mix?

My son is the drummer. He's in 3 bands at the moment, one classic rock, one originals, the other death metal.

I've been playing guitar since I was 11 (50 years now). (I'm the handsome lad in the middle with the red semi-solid Harmony.)
Image

I still play pretty regularly (mostly rock and blues) but my arthritis slows me down a bit. My current rig is a 79 Gibson GK-55 with a Marshall 1/2 stack.

I couldn't be more prouder of him when it comes to his music and abilities. Like to say he got it from me but it is the one thing I have to attribute to his dad. I may have given a touch of music but his dad is also a musician of all things musical. Can't say anything else nice about the man...

Nice. My oldest is a five string bass kinda guy too. He also plays other instruments, but bass is his first love.
