The Retro Recording Project

Recently, I purchased a retro player:

It was a hit at my Music Appreciation class earlier this month. My students have been enjoying listening to my old records. For me, it's a trip down memory lane.

So far, so good. However, I loosened the screw that balances the turntable arm and unit, so the needle arm doesn't play the first 30 seconds of a record. >_<

I bought this unit at The Source for $200 CAD. There are other models available at Future Shop and Amazon.

Once I sort out my technical glitch, I'm looking forward to is my summer project: to convert my parents' vinyl collection to CD. First up: disco, soul and funk!
