I also got into CD's when they first came out I paid over $700.00 for the first one the Sony CDP-101 that sounded like HorseSh*t and quit working as soon as it was out of warranty. I was so glad I kept my LP's and turntables. I remember I only had about 50 CD rock titles to choose from when I bought it and they all listed for $17.99 when records were generally less than half that. 11 of those first CD's I bought no longer play even though they were always stored properly. 

 



I like to listen to vinyl every so often, even my old tapes, just for that old, nostalgic sound. Yes it is warmer, yet the shape of my records and my analog system cant compete with my digital system. After the untimely death of SACD and DVD-A (at least i dont think they make DVDA anymore), High Res downloads are growing and looks like it may have a promising future...although I still balk at the relatively high prices (did you see the stones relaunch in High Res: https://www.hdtracks.com/index.php?file=stones $30 for download?). I just hope more artists/retailers realize there are many folks who are not satisfied with MP3, or redbook CDs for that matter.

I sold a good many of mine too...but not all of them. I also sold some great classic stuff that I thought I'd never listen to again, when I was first into new wave alt-rock....the horror!

Its likely your old turntables if you still have them are far better quality than any USB table you can get. If you no longer have a receiver with a phono input you can get a standalone phono preamp pretty cheap and just plug it into the line input on your soundcard.

I had a lot invested in LP's so I kept the 4000+ AND bought CD's AND SACD's AND DVD-Audio....I even had laserdisc because there were some concerts that were only available in that format..

There used to be a ground wire connection involved for phono jacks as well.  Do "newer" turntables still have that?

Back then some didn't either. They used to "float" the grounds from the cartridge and ground the arm tube instead with a 5th wire. This was done to help prevent ground loops that could cause hum. Also, some preamps also floated the grounds on the phono input jacks and needed that separate ground wire.

Well *only* the phono jacks will work for phonographical recordings. Everything else you can switch around but don't plug your dvd into phono or vice versa.

It's problem is that it's tired and not all the jacks work. And the jacks are SO hard to get to in the cabinet we made for it!

It most likely has a phono input then. Yippee! 

Hopefully the jacks will work and won't need cleaning, if you can get to them.

One thing Dave mentioned... be sure your amp has a Phono input. You can't plug it into the DVD's jacks.
