Quoted from Rat_Tomago:

I have a whole other bedroom (nursery size) that will fit another 3 or 4 machines.

Baby can wait.

My wife is 48 years old. I don't see any babys in our future. I also hope that I never have someone 18-22 years old look for his long lost father either.

I wouldn't mind having someone 18-22 years young looking for me.

This is how you show off one of my favorite Classic Rock groups "Free"

#1267 5 years ago

Show us your EM rock and roll bands.

#1268 5 years ago

Sticking to the EM theme, guys! EM instead of EMO. EM music, Bands that had to use Vinyl for albums, no compressed music here folks. Getting to the record store to pick up some new album was fun. AHH, the memories.

As a side note I did like the CD format too. Easier to handle and store. Sound quality was little better than the turntable and cartidge that I have. Now, when is my EM Beatles pin being made? I am still waiting.

#1269 5 years ago

I never stopped buying vinyl

Sold all my Vinyl 30 years ago when the CD format came out and stuck to it ever since. Last format that I will own!

I got rid of all my 8-tracks, but kept my vinyl. Somebody told me cassettes are the next big thing.

#1272 5 years ago

#1274 5 years ago

Still have all my vinyl.
Cds are numbered though ,soon digital mp 3 and similar formats will take over.

#1275 5 years ago

I have 800 cds of Classic Rock that I will never part with. I sold my LPs in 1987 and I regret doing so. I have all of my cds converted to Flac files as well on my computer.

Me too. I sold all my cassettes in the 90s. Now to get rid of the 400 CDs i have

I gave away or donated all my vinyl when I got my 1st CD player. I truly regret it.

Like many people here I grew up in the vinyl age. Those are the songs I listened to a thousand times over, the way they were produced.

A few people say the analog vinyl is more "pure" or "better" than a digital format. I think most people agree that digital is better for many reasons.

But a lot of those old familiar vinyl albums and songs have been -remastered- or -remixed- in their conversion to a digital format. That means that awesome rhythm guitar riff in the background is now remixed to a level almost perceivable while a keyboard or vocal is brought to forefront. I find that often times the percussion/drums are mixed a lot louder than the original which I feel detracts from the feel how I originally knew it. Some remixes just sound crappy, particularly some heavy metal groups like Black Sabbath.

Any other Black Sabbath fans around? "Wheels of Confusion" is a prime example of a boogered up digital CD crappy remix. I regret to hell that I got rid of it that vinyl and been looking for a replacement for so long.

I have a 1961 Seeburg Jukebox which refurb/restoration is almost finished. Some of my friends say I should fix it so an iPod/Samsung tablet can play through it. I'd -never- do that. There's a special sound quality made by a genuine analog tube amp playing vinyl which can't be reproduced... even though it's been tried many times. It's warm and imperfect.
Plus who would want to hear crappy digital remixes through an antique jukebox?

#1278 5 years ago
Quoted from SteveFury:

100% agree with this. Less tinny sound more warm sound.

#1279 5 years ago

Yikes... I have like 3,000 cds as my brother Kevin (Pin-It) can attest... I only have about 100 or so vinyl albums left in my collection... I need a record player...

#1280 5 years ago

Google "loudness wars" if you really want to see how they are compressing the shit out of music these days... All of it leads to a lack of dynamics and ear fatigue when listening...

#1281 5 years ago

Still the best... Haha

#1282 5 years ago

Hate to do this guys, but look what I just brought on today! Sadly, it's not mine but I will have it here for a while. As long as it takes me to shine it up and play it for a while.

Very, very, flakey. That is a sad sight.

#1286 5 years ago

Ron Webb has a nice Sweet Hearts repro backglass available (good price, shipping included too).

Quoted from DirtFlipper:

Good to know! I think the rest of this machine will shine up nice. I bet the owner will end up wanting it. What do you think the price is?

#1288 5 years ago

I think his backglasses are about 225 if I recall ... but beautiful!

#1289 5 years ago

Ron's glasses are $265, unless they're on sale or seconds.

In memory of Lou.

#1291 5 years ago

I just got a sweet hearts, it is in great shape. It has been on my list for quite a while
that one looks to have some wear in the pb area but other that that the pf should clean up nice, is the cabinet repaint like the head?

as far as music goes i always licked the vinyl pops and clicks, i have digital music but listen to vinyl when i really want to listen and enjoy the tunes. i still search garage sales and flea markets for good old vinyl
a good player is a must

#1292 5 years ago

I just put one of my "vinyl players" up for sale if anyone is interested?

Did you rebuild the amp yourself Alex?

#1294 5 years ago

I like ami machines even though they get little love with juke collectors

#1295 5 years ago
Quoted from hoov:

Did you rebuild the amp yourself Alex?

No, I have a buddy that is my jukebox guy. There is a much larger learning curve with these machines.

Quoted from boilerman:

Yeah, that may be true in general but they have a lot of neat models. My friend has an AMI I that is amazing. He also has a Continental that is a pretty popular machine but a little too Jestons for me.

My wife bought a really nice 1954 Rock-ola Comet Fireball to replace our D-80. Both are a nice compact size for smaller spaces.

#1296 5 years ago
Quoted from boilerman:

...as far as music goes i always licked the vinyl pops and clicks...

Pretty sure that is NOT a good way to clean your records...

#1297 5 years ago

i would like get a model A, like the model f also
never liked the continenal
i don't have a jukebox a the moment, looking for a good project, but in the past few years they are almost all grabed up buy the flippers or dealers

#1298 5 years ago

I just sold a Rockola 1448 and I have a '50 Seeburg 100B. I like any of these older jukes where you can see the vinyl play in front of you. I was looking at a Paradise at an estate sale last summer and they had a Seeburg R - beautiful - wish I would have bought it but I didn't have the money.

#1299 5 years ago

We missed out on a really nice Wurlitzer 2104 on our local Craigslist a couple weeks back. It was $1200, needed to be gone through but looked to have nice cosmetics and working. It was gone in a day and I saw it again on Craigslist a couple days later. That sort of inspired my wife's other purchase.

Sure why not?
