My dad took me to a second hand store to show me a turntable they had for sale, but we found an entire Toshiba stereo setup, with radio, record, and cassette players. Then we found awesome 75 watt speakers and a 5-CD changer to hook up to it, and I now have an amazing, ~$1500 stereo system (at least that's how much it would've been in, say, the 70's). As it is, it cost him $200 which I have to pay back come september when I get a job. (Also the blue one is my old one; nicer looking but this new one blows it away.)
also just for fun, my small yet building vinyl collection:
Needless to say, stoked.
