I still buy vinyl. I can't stand CDs, looking back I wish I would've just kept buying vinyl instead of getting sidetracked by worthless CDs.

Coo present! I have a record player and enjoy listening to records. It is a much more interactive experience than listening to a CD or Pandora. It can be a pain if you're hosting a party...it is an activity in itself.

I buy vinyl '45s regularly. Picked up several for punk collection yesterday - Plasmatics, Richard Hell, and The Dead Boys. I also collect new vinyl 45s by bands like the Rifles, Crystal Castles, and the Horrors. I have all this stuff on CD / MP3, but like owning the original releases + the cover art. As for LPs, I have been building my Ramones collection with live recordings on vinyl.

Yep, got the family turntable when Dad died. It's older than me (pics to prove it). Still plays excellent.

Also got the marantz 1200 amp and a couple Rtr speakers.

Currently put away while we remodel the basement...

500+ albums
Kenwood table (nothing fancy here, see below)

Grace F9 cartridge. The cartridge is the heart of vinyl sound reproduction, if you skimp here it's all downhill.

Sansui AU7900 amp--the same amp that John Cusack's charachter owned in "High Fidelity"
Not that it makes it a great amp, but it's a great amp.

Stephen's Trusonic 12" coaxial speakers. And a satellite set of Trusonic 8" speaks.

Stephens was an engineer for JBL back in the 40's. Instrumental in "voice of the theater" stuff. Spun off his own company--superb stuff.

4500+ LP's, about 1000 45 rpm singles, and a touch over 3000 Compact Discs, many of which replace seldom played scratchy, old vinyl.

Turntable is a rega planar 3 with a stock tone arm. CD player is early '90s vintage NAD. (From when the stuff was still Brit made.) I only listen to vinyl when I've not been able to replace it with CDs. I have a friend that owns a small recording studio who from time to time converts old LP's for me, removing the surface noise.

I don't buy the whole hipster "return to vinyl" fad.

I have a Thorens TD-160 turntable hooked to a different rotation of Sansui equipment. Speakers are ESS.

I love listening to vinyl on vintage equipment.

I don't have the attention span for 45's but I have lots of 70's punk (including the Voidoids and the Dead Boys), rock, some new wave, blues and older rap on LP's. Collection is up to ~300 at the moment.

Sounds like a fine collection!
I have always been a fan of the 7" single since I was really young. It started with the German relatives sending us records. My older sister started collecting 45s when she was 13, coming home with something new every weekend. When I started building my own collection, I gravitated towards the 7" single for a couple reasons. One was that in the single represented the "hit," or the very best song the band had to offer at the moment. In some cases, it was the bridge between starting out and making it big. They were jump starters for independent bands, or ways of testing the waters for major labels before committing to a full LP. More than any of that, it was an easy format to carry around. We had new music parties, and the single was a nice compact item.
I collected 100s of LPs as well, but ending up selling them all to help pay my way through college.

I still have a Thorens turntable with a set of Infinity Reference Studio Monitor Speakers. Have Audio Research (tube) Amp and Preamp and a ship-load of albums some direct to disc recordings. My brother-in-law had an audio component store from the late '60's that started and ended at WVU in Morgantown 45 years later. He had for a few years two stores in Pittsburgh near Pitt University and he majored in music when he was in college. He was a great audiophile and knew a lot of people like Henry Kloss of KLH, Advent, and Cambridge Soundworks. I watch him walk into the main listening room and tell his sales guys to fix a set of high end speakers they just set up because they were out of phase. Well the bets were on for lunch that he was wrong, he had a great free lunch later that day. I learned a lot from him on what true sound reproduction was really about.
