I've had my eye on a Thorens or a Rega turntable for a couple decades. Belt drive turntables still rule. I once attended an audiophile conference in San Francisco, around 1990, and was blown away by how good (analog) music could sound. Knowing how good music can sound, I could never go backwards in quality beyond the lower quality of a CD. All those mp3 gadgets blow to the bone. I could never buy into that low fidelity crap.
