    Equipment used to play vinyls: Pro-ject Carbon with the Ortofon 2M Red cartridge, generic Kenwood amplifier, Tannoy Revolution 8XT floor speakers (pictured below), Rega fono MM pre-amplifier.

    My computer comes equpped with an old Soundblaster X-Fi XtremeMusic sound card and foobar2000 is used for playback. Lossless (FLAC) is the norm in 'ere, although 1/3 of my digital music collection is still in mp3. I also have a spinclean for manual cleaning of the vinyls. Pain in the arse. Vinyl records are not likely to be scrobbled to last.fm. Gone are the compulsive days of early adulthood and nights with Universal Scrobbler.

    My iPod 4g nano is the last of its kind that is able to scrobble. The sound quality is pretty bad, when compared to newer models. It's good for gym, though. Earphones - AKG K32something (the text is kinda worn out).

    Planned upgrades: Ortofon 2M black cartridge, Synthesis Flame amplifier, proper biwire speaker cables. …
