LOL! Yeah, you are right. I have been turning to vinyl since a 2 month and I am searching for the best deck since then. I picked up a few already, but somehow I always think I could to better. I am looking in the under $500 segment, so there is a lot to choose from. Right now, I am listening to some Grateful Dead on my newly required Pioneer PL12D. To be honest, I am amazed how good this budget table sounds. Amazing. I have also heard the new "High-End" decks, but they don't do it for me. I am all into vintage, I just love the nostalgia. But like you said, I have to take time and actually enjoy the vinyl sound. Cause even with a modest deck, it still smokes cd!
Kindest regards, Grendel.
