I'm not sure what you mean by 'the way they were meant to be heard', because when those old wooden thingys came out, that was the available technology for home use but they vinyl itself was mastered on far better equipment, but the cost was too prohibitive for the average home listener. To be honest the oldies but goodies aint that good at all, man.

Get a decent turntable with an excellent needle hooked up to a good stereo reciever and higher-end speakers. That's how the records are 'meant to be played'

Unless, of course, you want to go this classic:

Hahaha freaking gramaphone... okay I see. So you're saying those old fashioned pretty looking wooden record players with speaker ain't all that?? I just wanted to preserve that antique look or whatever to go with the vinyl.

Well there's a HUGE range to choose from, depending on your budget and your ears..

Stanton, Shure, Denon and Ortofon are make decent mid-priced (ie $50-150) needles that should satisfy the average listener.

I like the look, and I haven't noticed anything wrong with the sound, but like I said before, I don't know any better, so take GVox's advice, cause he obviously knows what he's talking about

Ok well I do sense you want to be retro about the look. That's cool and all. I'm a complete sound geek, so I don't care about the retro look so much... I'm not saying you won't get good quality out of the big old wood ones, but you'll like have to make some mods to it. If the cabinetry is what you like, simply get an old cabinet and make your own system out of it with newer components inside. Your guests will never know the difference, and you'll get cool retro looks with great sound

Haha make your own cabinet.. that's a good idea too! Thanks for your help, guys! I'm definitely gonna get a player or turntable soon!

April, you can resume ripping BoMac's clothes off now if you like.
