i was just looking through a closet with a **** load of old records from the 60s and stuff they my dad told me about. i was just wondering, are original records worth anything more than reissues or anything like that?
#2
Do they still even make record players? I thought they were basically outsourced by now?
Christ. I'm behind.
Where could I find one?

Depending on the condition, yes.

yes, you can still buy a record player

I have one with a digital output and software that lets me record it onto the computer and mix tracks. LP to iPod.

Yes.

A number of 2006/2007 albums have been released on vinyl.

I picked my turntable up at my mums opshop. Its worth $100 in the shops and I scored it for nothing.

I'm slowly building my collection of vinyl. finding 80s metal is hard though.

And ive seen record players in hifi shops aswell as electrical type shops.

I never said illegally. I just don't see the point of all the trouble to get it off a vinyl.

I don't mind the legality. It's just that there's gratification to be had with vinyl collecting. Like any hobby or collection, it's a good experience. I don't think that qualifies anyone as a noob.

You can still find plenty of NEW turntables in tons of places. Try electronic stores, not like best buys and stuff. Ma and Pa ones more likely.
#14
im not buying these, i said i just found them. theres a bunch of beatles albums, some bob marley, allman brothers, grateful dead, aerosmith, the rolling stones, U2, some cheesy 80s bands(flock of seagulls lol), and a crap load of george benson stuff.
#15
they're not worth much unless they're really rare, or still in original packaging. My local music store sells them for a buck a piece, sometimes less. It's a goldmine!
#16
i should get one of those converters, alot of my favourite punk records are on vinyl. not many stores sell wipers and pop smear singles

not usually. 99.99 percent of records aren't worth anything regardless of their age or condition, despite this warped notion of value everyone who stumbles upon their parents' old records seems to have.
#18
Not really. Just listen too them. It's a lot more gratifying to listen to a wonderfully distorted and crackly piece of music history.
