I usually don't go out and buy vinyl... only because there are no record stores in a 20 mile radius from where I live.

There are some good deals online regarding vinyl. You can even buy them used with a guarantee.

It's more expensive to buy vinyl online if you're looking for something specific. Also, it's alot more fun to browse through a collection of records.

I still own a whole lot of vinyl. I admit, I don't care much for the format because it's fragile and easily corruptible and record albums take up alot of space. Though alot of audiophiles say it's "warmer" sounding, I personally don't really hear those nuances that much. For me, the cons outweigh the pros. But when I'm at a flea market/yard sale and I see a used record I'm interested in, I'll buy it so I can burn it to cd which is what I'm doing with the rest of my collection.

I still have cassettes tapes too and when I find them on sale for .99 cents or less or it's something I want, I'll buy them and do the same thing.

Well I'm just listening to Albatros and I think this might just be the single most horrible piece of music I've ever heard. Unless the vinyl comes with some mind altering drug, I really don't see how it could make it listenable.

It comes with closer to real life analogue sound, along with superior tone.

I was in my local record store today...and if I had a turntable, I would've walked out with 4 or 5 great records just out of the 20$ I brought.
The cheapest player at the store is ~150$

One of my local shops has a clean out every now and then with the vinyl section (which is huge, its the entire second floor) which is everything you can carry for 10. Happy days.
