I have a large LP collection that I have had for years. I re-bought most of my favorites on CD's over the years and almost forgot about my LP's until I came across an HK Citation 1 Tube amp (early 60's) and set up a dedicated 2 channel system away from my home theater. So, I dragged out the old Thorens, bought a new Grado Cartridge, set it up with a GEODISC and sat down to listen. WOW! I can't believe the sound coming out of my speakers. So much warmth with a huge soundstage. Acoustic songs sound like they are in the room. I'm re-discovering my LP's. Even CD's sound better with the tubes. But, it's the LP's that are the real stars of the show. I encourage you brave ones to give it a try. Get a decent 2nd hand belt-drive turntable and a cheap Grado Cartridge. Used records are available in any major city. Gotta go now, have to flip the sides over!
