For nearly a decade now, I’ve been preaching some basic tenets concerning the enjoyment of vinyl. If you’ve been following along for that long, you’ll know the first two by heart. First, you must take good care of your records, which usually means the purchase of a record cleaning machine. And second, you probably need to spend a pretty fair amount of change on a decent turntable before you will achieve a higher level of musicality that eclipses most budget CD players. While that number has fluctuated over the last few years, in the year 2007, I still stick by my original statement.
