My dad has sat on a turntable and 400+ records for decades now. In all my years of living I’ve never seen that damn thing get used. When I moved out (again, hopefully for good this time) I asked him about it and he let me take it. He also gave me first dibs on his records, in which I’ve pilfered plenty and been given the task of flogging the rest… at some point. I’ll use this page to list what I have.

gaming rig

Turntable: Rega Planar 2 (a mid-80’s one, not the 2016 one)

Cartridge: Linn K5, although it’s ancient and needs replacing. Will probs pick up an AT-VM95E at some point.

Receiver: Sony STR-VX22, bagged off eBay. I don’t have the cash for a split pre- and power-amp set up right now.

Speakers: A couple of old Mission 731s

the hoard

I have all my records on Discogs if you want to do some virtual crate digging! I’ll probably just post my latest finds, or records I just love.
