I've been daydreaming about getting into vinyl, and this would be an amazing way to do it. Aside from the high end equipment, the chosen albums would be awesome. My kids love the Star Wars movies and the Guardians of the Galaxy movies as well. They constantly ask Alexa to play music from those movies, so having the music on vinyl would be the cherry on top!

I have a lifetime of carefully cared-for vinyl that seriously needs a new system to appreciate it, I.e., turntable is 30+ years old and getting more and more feeble! Thanks for the opportunity.
