So this is a bit late, as I haven't been around much, but I figured I'd let you know one of the things you guys did to me. I purchased my first turntable 6-8 months ago. Nothing fancy, a Denon DP-300f, stock cartridge and using the built-in pre-amp. Using it to listen to a lot of Dad Rock (aka the albums my Dad left in the garage) and some newer stuff that I've been buying here and there. I don't have golden ears. I'm honestly not sure if I can tell the difference between a CD/MP3/Vinyl. But there is something about the process of taking out a record and putting it on and then not being about to skip a song or something like that which I'm really enjoying. I had a lot of problems with my floors in the beginning since I live in a 50+ year old home with wood floors so every time someone would walk a little heavy the thing would skip. A couple of weekends ago I wall-mounted it and that's been a world of difference. I never used a turntable before I purchased on. My Dad went all-in on CDs and got our first CD player in 86 when I was 6, so it's all I've really known. I'm having a fun time playing around with it, though!
