Hi Fellow music lovers!
I have a small yet very dear (to me) and valued collection of vinyl, a few of which are limited releases, a few audiophile pressings and one or two rare or hard to find albums. I was just wondering ... is there any way I can achieve this without incurring too much cost:
1) Transfer to CD or (heavens forbis, compact cassettes) for casual play at home in order not to wear out my records?
I wouldn't mind doing DATs if I can find a good DAT player cheap (less than $100?). Err...I have not been playing with Hi-Fi in more than what ...10 years so dun hamtam me ah. I have no clue of the prices of equipment these days. My old set up was a Pink Triangle, Syrinz PU-3, G-DECCA London (gold I think, can't remember) and a whole slew of amps. The turntable needs new tone-arm leads; I don't have a pre-amp for my humble Rotel Power and speakers are NADA!
Or is there a better way of doing this?
BTW, I will more than be willing to use my own Garrotted DECCA London Gold if someone wants to explore the possibility of doing this out of a mutual love for music (read: NOT for profit or commercial purposes).
I don't have much to offer, but I'm more than happy to let you make a copy of my records if you like my music (mainly 80's pop and a few classicals, jazz and world music).
BTW, I am NOT an audiophile, so please don't trash my choice of equipment or opinions. I just love the music.
