I actually rather enjoy the lp ritual. Its kind of therapeutic and the reward is great music...That and I rip the stuff thats hard to find on CD to 24 bit flac and some I also degrade down to mp3 for uploading here so it can get insta-sorried.

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

Here is a write up on examining the stylus:

Examining Your Stylus


If the sylus is well worn or damaged it can ruin any records played on it.

If you have a jewelers loup it couldn't hurt to examine the stylus though. Because of my bad eyesight from the stroke I ended up getting a toy usb microscope for $15 and it works great for looking at and taking pics of styluses.

"cartridge"... damn, I haven't heard that term in so long.  It's weird because in college I was by far the biggest audiophile of any girl I knew... and most of the guys.

As long as your receiver/amp/preamp has a phono input there should be no problem. The stylus should still be ok if it was ok when you stored it. If it is a belt drive turntable it may need a new belt.

The fabric cleaner if its like the Dishwasher brand that was popular is good for cleaning surface debris but it wont get stuff down in the grooves. You can get a carbon fibre bristle brush for about $10 that will clean the deeper stuff. If the records have mold then they cal literly be cleaned under a tub faucet and dried with a microfiber car detail brush. Most record labels are ok with being wet but some like A&M records dont like it.

What kind of turntable and cartridge is it?

Not sure where to start this...

Hairfarmer got me pining for my Yes albums.

It wouldn't be too hard to disconnect the DVD player and plug in the Turntable...

Here's the question...

Is there anything I need to do to the albums?  I have the old fabric cleaner thing (the one that looks just a little like a fancy chalkboard eraser)

If they have some mold (!) can I just clean them?

Is there anything I need to do to the turntable?  The needle should be okay, right?  it's been... probably over 15 years since I used it... can't even remember.
