    My wife is not a morning-music person, so I don't often listen to music during breakfast. But she had an early meeting this morning, so the stereo is MINE!

    Hadn't listened to Simone Dinnerstein's Goldberg Variations for a while. I cut my classical music teeth on Glenn Gould's version, but find that Dinnerstein's laid back take (almost twice as long as Gould's) very pleasant. If anything, more dynamic range than Gould (from variation to variation).

    I picked up an LP and an EP today. I am travelling so I won't be able to play the vinyl for a few days, but I've been listening to the mp3 downloads:

    First - Murder of the Universe by King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. KG & tLB have been ludicrously productive in 2017, I think they've released 5 albums. This one is on glow in the dark vinyl!

    Is it saying you have a collection that is too big, when you try to listen to Pandora to see if you missed some old school R&B from the 80's and every song they play you already have it

    Not at all! That is saying you have a complete and well rounded 80's R&B collection!

    I am to the point where I have some songs I like/enjoy but can't find them on CD or for digital download yet have them on vinyl. I have a nice turntable setup, but that is limited to my main audio room plus I can't just pick it with iPeng to play it by the pool. I am tempted to buy a USB Turntable so I can rip these 60's, 70's, and early 80's classics to FLAC (better will probably kill me if she discovers another turntable).

    Anybody have suggestions on a good turntable for ripping vinyl?

    You don't need a new turntable just get something like a Behringer UCA202 to use with your current turntable.

    I use a Behringer UFO202 (less than ú25 on Amazon) to record from a Rega Planar 3 - it is helpful to have a long USB lead to reach the laptop or PC. I record vinyl LPs using Audacity.

    Do NOT buy a USB turntable. If your amp has a tape loop get a Behringer UCA202 (only about ú25) and invest in VinylStudio software for your PC/MAC

    I am 90% into my vinyl collection using this set up.

    One tip. When you connect the Behringer check the recording device properties. It may select 1 Channel 44,100 by default but needs to be changed to 2 Channels 44,100 or 48,000

    If you have a proper TT / Amp set up already this is vastly superior to a USB TT
