    As long as the sound is balanced and they're comfortable, you should be fine.

    Edited:

    It's more about the equipment you listen to that gets the best out of headphones anyway. Plus they get better with age.

    there are maniacs who'd get it all. But there's about 100-200 releases... and that's not including the live albums.
    they're probably second only to the maniacs who try and collect all of John Zorn's albums lol

    For my birthday present to myself, I pre-ordered the "The Grand Inquisitor" 10" E.P. by The Ocean today within 45 seconds of seeing it announced. It's limited to 302 hand-numbered copies, has the final and otherwise unavailable fourth part of the Grand Inquisitor "series," and is printed on half clear/half brown vinyl. The April release can't possibly come soon enough.
    Nicee, they posted pictures of the pressings on their facebook, looks great.
    I definitely wanna get Precambrian on vinyl. It's a 3xLP, and costs $55, but it's such a good album.

    Might not be vinyl related, but does anyone here have a tube amp? Besides look incredibly badass, is one worth the purchase?

    I've always like the look of tube amps, but they're so expensive.

    I've heard somewhere that tube amps give a warmer more classic sound. I have no idea how will warmer sounds like, must be from some audiophile.

    incredibly subjective as with all other audio "color" words, for some it means boosted low mids and others it's more in the highs - a "fuzzy" top end.

    it means the former most to me. whatever. and also tubes can get both of the above sounds depending on how hard you crank it.

    warmer just means less harsh, smoother, deeper delivery of the music. This is all meaningless to say unless you've heard it though.

    I recently completed my Los Campesinos! discography:



    Hold On Now, Youngster... (2008)


    The orange disc has a bonus track on one side and some cool etchings on the other

    We Are Beautiful, We Are Doomed (2008)

    Limited edition box, not vinyl but awesome anyway (it has a tour DVD, fanzine and some mini poster thing)

    Romance is Boring (2010)



    Hello Sadness (2011)


    Part of a bundle, came with a CD of demos from their first album, a "Making of" DVD and a t-shirt


    They also do a quarterly fanzine which I didn't subscribe to but they're selling #3 on their website, so I got that. It comes with a 7" with two tracks from the Hello Sadness sessions.

    I got to play my turntable for the FIRST time! My dad's friend gave me the stereo receiver and speakers for free!


    check out these FAT SPEAKER CABLES

    they are so fat that they barley fit into the ports
    FAT cables for the best sound

    the first record I played was Arabian Knights

    my dad has two huge boxes of really nice records

    sorry for shitty pic quality, i had to use a iphone

    Sorry for the late response. The pre-orders sold out in 72 hours, so I'm pretty lucky to have gotten one. I'm seriously considering getting Precambrian and Anthropocentric, but at this point the cost is just too much unfortunately. Having the full sized art for Anthro would be so awesome, though.

    one of my dad's best friends has an old pioneer deck like that. Bought it as a student in 1977 and it's a pretty lovely thing.

    wish I had fancy vintage stereo stuff rather than my very average early 90's hi fi but there you go.

    Picked up Fleet Foxes - Helpessness Blues, Bob Marley and the Wailers - Exodus and Earth - Angels of Darkness, Demon's of Light I. The latter comes on 2 marble-effect green vinyl and the D-side is etched with some awesome tribal artwork.

    I would like to have Anthropocentric and Heliocentric as well, but they are so damn expensive. At least Precambian is a triple vinyl, so I can understand why that would be pricier.

    Plays 45 rpm 7"s and 33 rpm 12"s
    Dust cover (optional)

    the Audio Technical AT-LP60 has been a really good starting turntable for me, so I have no problems recommending it.
    I've never used an expensive professional turntable, so I really couldn't compare it to anything high-end.

    Helio would be great to have, but it's not quite as high up on my "to buy" list in terms of vinyl. Granted, having the set with Anthro would be incredibly cool, even if just for the art.

    I actually haven't listened to Anthropocentric yet, but I really loved Helio. I need to get on that.
    I've been holding out on buying any new vinyls because my Z-2300's died, so I need to get speakers first. Gonna get some M-Audio AV40's since I never used the subwoofer much, and I'm dying to have multiple inputs.

    Then the vinyls I want to get are "Hospice" by The Antlers, "Helplessness Blues" by Fleet Foxes, more early Rush records, and then Precambrian.

    Changesonebowie, Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall, the White Album,Oingo Boingo "nothing to fear", A lot of Generation X, a lot of Husker Du, a lot of The Jam, a lot of Ramones, and Blondie, and the Blasters, and X, and Beach Blvd, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers (very first album),
    and tons more. Theres a whole other BOX of albums I haven't gone through! I don't really have to worry about buying records for my podcast right away.

    While I was in London the other day I found a nice little record shop in Camden and picked up this pair of beauties.




    There's a very small but deep scratch on the Daft Punk one though, makes it skip. But I don't give a fuck because I've wanted that record for ages.

    A USB turntable will almost definitely have a USB turntable and built in amp. I'm not so certain about the ATLP60, but I believe it is a USB and has a built in preamp.

    its actually belt driven, which my grandfather says is about 2nd best.
    But does it have a headphone port? The LP60? It looks amazing.

    also I found Demon Days - Gorillaz at a store for 35 dollars.
    is it worth it? its 2 lps, is it a bootleg or real?

    It's not a USB turntable, though there is a version of it that does have USB.
    And it has a built in preamp.
