Do any of you have a record player? How old is it? Do you use it often?

I have one that I bought my fiancé for Valentine’s Day. I don’t even use it anymore. We used it maybe three times and then stopped. All of our records are in my car, though. They were in my trunk when I got into my car accident last week, so they’re probably shattered now anyways. :(

Grandparents are the right people to ask since they been born and using them when they are at there young age. But that being said it's coming back! We are starting to see it on the store and whatnot. There are still record player shops around. There are two near me.

They are good for Djs :)

They say record players capture more of the intended sound than CDs. Does anyone agree?
Records have a better quality sound than CDs, yes.

My Dad has a 3000+ collection of them. He's got some players in the shed that he uses to listen to them. Every other day he comes home with a bunch more from the Op / Thrift Shop.

I've never gone out of my way to buy a player or records but I do like listening to them. They sound a lot warmer and idk, I guess the I'm nostalgic for the crack at the beginning of the songs.

There is one in my house... only good for collecting dust that is. It was my mother's at one point.
