Ever notice in the movies, that the cool characters always have turntables and never play CDs?    ha2ha

I was referring to the original first pressings, Kelley.  Those in mint condition are quite expensive today.

Oh, okay. That makes sense. Anyway, I am really looking forward to ordering my first album. I think I'll start with Rubber Soul.

I read that it was going to be there.  I haven't listened yet.  If that's the worst thing about this set, I can live with that.

You need this...





At Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-AT-LP120-USB-Direct-Drive-Professional-Turntable/dp/B002S1CJ2Q/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1352849975&sr=1-1&keywords=Audio-Technica+AT-PL120


I ordered it from Amazon.  I was going to wait until I bought a house, but I can't just let those babies sit there on my coffee table!

And based on the recommendations of a lot of reviewers on Amazon, I upgraded the cartridge to the Shure M97xE High-Performance Magnetic Phono Cartridge.

Good for you! I hated to think of you staring longingly at those albums much longer.

The thing I like about the turntable is that is has a built-in pre-amp, so I can hook it up to a Yahama AV receiver that doesn't have a phono input.
When I move into a house I'll get an old fashioned stereo receiver and some JBL type speakers, but right now I need to stop spending money like a drunken sailor on liberty!

That should be enough to tide you over until the mono vinyl box set comes out.

Enjoy your new turntable & records.

Thanks.  As far as the mono goes, I'm going to read reviews first before deciding to buy.  If it's not way better sound wise than the 2009 Beatles In Mono CDs, I may not buy the vinyl.  I consider the The Beatles In Mono to be some of the finest remasters ever and one of the highlights of the digital age.

You have chosen...wisely.

You'll like that turntable, George.  I also upgraded the cartridge when I bought my AT-LP120 to an Audio-Technica AT440MLa. 





My turntable doesn't have the USB port.  It wasn't available at the time and the model you bought superceded mine.  I had to buy a Behringer U-CONTROL UCA202 for USB capability.  I paid about $100 more than you for my AT-LP120 in 2005 and that's why I said it was a great deal.

Enjoy your new box set on your new turntable!!

As of September 20011, the turntable now comes with the AT95E cartridge, which is supposed to be pretty good, but I wanted to upgrade anyway. The AT440MLa is an excellent cartridge which I may get down the road, depending on how I like the Shure, which is said to have a very warm sound, the AT95E is said to be brighter sounding.

The turntable should arrive Friday.  I started opening the albums today.  Geez, I was like a kid when I opened Magical Mystery Tour and The White Album.  I got The White Album for Christmas in 1968 and wow did that bring back memories!

That won't happen until I buy a house. I honestly don't know where I'm going to fit the turntable right now. I can use the built in preamp and connect the turntable to my AV receiver, or connect to my PC for ripping to digital or even listening.
