    "John Lennon collection with a factory miss label, has "side two" labels on both side of the record!"

    Pressing records is not as glamorous as listening to them.

    "Are any of you super psyched on 8 track tapes?"

    Could be the next thing, compact cassettes already made their comeback.

    for anyone looking to step up their audiophile game, i recommend visiting the audiogon.com forums. a good way to assemble a first rate system...or to learn about them. a pricey but satisfying hobby.

    I enjoy vinyl a lot for all the reasons mentioned, but some pressings are less than stellar if you have a system that is transparent.

    San Francisco has quite a few great record store and when I don't have time to shop in stores, discogs is really great. Can usually find anything and in good to mint condition.

    SET tube amps and full range speakers are where it's at for me these days.

    Many Caro special! I'd be curious to hear an 8 track pushed through that speaker!

    I'd be interested in hearing that as well. Hard to get the same density and warmth from digital.

    not sure if this has been mentioned
    but for anyone in the south jersey area looking for some stores
    check out The Record Museum in Berlin NJ, or the Rock Shop in the Hamilton Mall.
    The Record Museum is great for all the used classic rock, jazz and soul. Rock Shop has lots of new stuff, as well as some used gems.

    I haven't checked out Rock Shop. Heard it's ok on newer stuff, but not much in rarer records. Best record shop on the East Coast is Double Decker Records in Allentown PA. Been going there since it opened. Never know what you're gonna find in that place.

    Does any one have an 8 track player in functioning condition that they don't want?
