Very nice!

Actually, not so much into HiFi, more into music so mine hasn't changed - other than retipping a cartridge as needed - since I bought it twenty years ago. I was happy with the sound and saw no reason to upgrade really. My ears have deteriorated after a lifetime of abuse on motor cycles, racing cars and going to rock concerts anyway so I am not sure it would be worth the expenditure. And the law of diminishing returns means it would be expensive too.

Still buying vinyl regularly and pleased to see it’s becoming more available too. Most gigs I go to have vinyl on their merchandising stands and the last gig; Trombone Shorty even had vinyl for their support band, The Record Company. I saw KT Tunstall before that and came away with four albums.

I am worse with vinyl than shaving soaps........

I am very much the same including the damaged hearing with loud concerts and motorbikes. I have recently cut back on my HiFi getting rid of a whole system.......only to make space for a bigger guitar amp which needs breathing space. I have never stopped the vinyl thing since I was 13 some 45 years back. I am just as happy with DAB radio. Without music life would be dull

I should have never sold my Oracle with Fidelity Research arm. I had the same brush also. I purchases VPI Super Scout and now have a Clearaudio Concept. Audio Research phono preamp under Oracle?
ARC pre-amp and Phono stage. Power amps are 2 x Accoustic Reality 1001 mono blocks.

I would have loved an FR 64 or a Sumiko 800 arm but the money never stretched that far. Certainly not with a very wise lady making sure the elasticity of demand stays the right side of the track.
