(to lila and VP)
Yeah maybe it was damaged in transit... I don't know though. It looks too busted in too many places to be something that happened in transit! I guess it doesn't matter cos I'm gonna burn the CD to itunes and my iPod anyway and never listen to the actual CD again! lol. I do have spare jewel cases but none that hold 2 CDs.

Khan, there are Crosley record players on ebay and other sites that you don't even need to plug in to any other device... they have their own speakers! that you can get for within 80 to 100 bucks with shipping.

You young 'uns are so cute when you talk about 'record players' and express excitement that some come with speakers.

i just plug mine into my stereo. i already had it and it's got good sound, so that part doesn't bother me. unless it was a huge record player (like the big wooden kind from the 70s or something) i don't think i'd want ones with built-in speakers.

In small, portable record players? No, they're usually crappy. I can't say about bigger ones that might be out now, I've never looked at them.

Basically, when I was really young, they used to have small, cheap portable ones with built in speakers - stuff that kids would use. When you got into your teen years/became a real music fan, you would get a decent stereo system with components, and buy a good turntable to hook up to it. Adults still persisted on calling these turntables record players though, much to the disdain of the hipper generation. Then older adults who didn't know any better would have floor model type record players/stereo systems, in which all the (usually cheap and crappy) components were built into a wooden box that was more like a piece of furniture.

Portable (although this one is way more old school than I remember)





This is a copy of the old cabinet model, the top is a lid that you lift where you'd find the record player and controls. They didn't have drawers for storage like this one does. Looks like this ones sells now at some UK store:

So I just went on that rate my prof site to see if my whole "this guy is ridiculous" claims were unfounded and hmm, seems like my entire school thinks he's the devil incarnate.

I was going to try and half ass it, but I don't want to risk failing altogether cause it sounds like this guy is a-n-a-l. Lovely.

I think I've had it with this day.

I've decided to try and avoid Rate My Prof. from now on, because it just scares me.

Well, there are speakers, they're just built in, and generally really crappy and small.

when I turn the volume all the way down on the stereo, the record is still audible, why's that?

thank you! that's what i was trying to think of in my post. for this model, of course i would just use the built-in speakers. but anything other than a cabinet model? i'll be hooking it up to a stereo or other component parts thx
