    Also who knows if the Sol will be better than the table you already had. So in that sense I'd sell, music over the medium and def over specific TTs. Dunno if Sol will be a panacea

    Yeah I think I would have to spend $$$ to get a vinyl setup that will beat Yggdrasil.

    Fair to assume that you already have all the music available in digital form, so turntable/LPs is a matter of pure choice?

    How long have you been playing vinyl? Newcomers can get in and get out again like an overactive stock dealer. When it comes to a lifetime's collection of music, that's a different matter. I'd never sell, even though I probably won't play again. Actual records cast a powerful spell.

    I’ve been into vinyl for over 20 years. It started out when I was in college and could buy records for $1-2 each. It was an inexpensive and fun way to listen to music. Now vinyl is way more $$ and CDs are crazy cheap. I think I’m going to just sell my expensive records and hold on to the cheap stuff in case I ever go back.

    It sounds like some of us have different fundamental perspectives on the goal with vinyl. For me it was never about chasing the best possible sound quality to beat out a DAC, hence I am A-OK with having a decent vinyl chain and putting the money saved into some nice records. To me, DAC chasing gets quite frustrating.

    With digital there will always be newer and better. It never ends! But you know, the hobby is the hobby; you've got to have a good dac for those vinyl musical selections that you just can't afford or find and then you get sucked back into the rabbit hole. No free lunches. I am sorry for the rambling and glad you found a buyer GP ;)

    Dont sell! For god's sake, man, don't sell!

    You'll wake up in the middle of one long, cold night with a desperate need to feel the vinyl, smell the cardboard...
