FYI: Yes, I still have a collection of vinyl (about 250 albums) and a working turntable.

QRP in Salinas Kansas, RTI in Camarillo Ca. and Pallas in Fairfax Va. are just a couple of the companies in the U.S. that are doing incredibly great pressings with old pressing machines that are automated. The mastering, the quality of the plated stampers and the pvc formulation are also more important than the pressing machines. Those three plants do excellent mastering, plating and also all analog pressings too (if an analog master tape is available) which is more important for sound quality on a good system. Lots of high quality new and reissued vinyl is available now in large part due to those three plants.

and yeah the 'white album' has been reissued using the original mono tapes for an all analog sound chain too

Interesting & ironic since I just won a free album in a radio station give-away yesterday Picking it up tomorrow...I'll have to see if there's any info about the method of production. Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness's new release.

Most new music is being released on vinyl these days as an option, but it's expensive. My collection is split among my 2 daughters, they'll have to RPS over this one

....got the free album today and it looks just like the lp's we all loved from back in the day with photos and band info on the album sleeve and a separate lyric sheet. It also came with a digital download, so the buyer can load it up on their digital device and save the # of spins on the album. This one was a Vanguard Records release and pressed at Memphis Record Pressing Vanguard Records - Independent Music

probably more info than you really needed

I used to play records through pc, have a nice garrard turntable (rosewood case!) and j&r musicworld preamp. Something (age) happened, turntable doesn't play the right speed anymore. I can yank on the levers under the platter and it gets closer, and then I can record records into the pc and then use a program to adjust the playback speed. Paid a local shop to fix the turntable, they greased it and did some stuff and it still doesn't work.

Too much work now. Thinking about getting a turntable w/ built in amp and usb out to pc.
