The plan here was to go ahead with rebuilding on the current site, the work was supposed to start in June. Everything was in place for them to start, then the school board held a series of secret meetings, and reversed their decision. They were just elected last fall, most of them on the basis of their stance with regard to the issue (they wanted to rebuild on the same site)...then they did a complete 180, and changed their minds. It's an emotional issue around here...it's the oldest high school in the city, a lot of attachment to it, it's a heritage building, and there are many, many reasons why its current location is good for both the school and the city in general. The walk out was huge news, she was on tv and interviewed by our newspaper on several occasions.

But I'm looking for something like what you posted or something I posted in my last post. All I need is a record player and maybe cassette deck. Don't need 3 CD changer and all that fancy jazz with it.
Zoot, chances are that any turntable you get with a built in speaker, it's going to sound like crap. I'd go the turntable route, even if there is some inconvenience re: hooking it up to a receiver and speakers. Although with that few albums, unless you're planning on collecting more, sound might not be a huge issue for you.

Oh man! Are you saying those brand spankin new looking Crosley players have poor speakers?

I could get a turntable and hook it to my stereo speaker.

I'm not sure, you'd have to listen for yourself and see, but I think it's safe to say that in general, if you have a decent system, your own speakers are going to be superior to anything that's built in, unless you're paying a fortune for it.


why don't you post a thread in Vorsprungnlkjilsener asking for opinions?

Listening to Instant Karma is just making me want to hear the originals. I haven't heard anything impressive yet.

Wow! None of the animated smileys are moving anymore. My C drive must be very low on space or something.
