For the past two years or so I have been collecting CD's, prog rock CD's from Europe from the 90s and 2000s. You can get them incredibly cheap and I enjoy listening to CD's in the car. I also speculate that CD's will make a cult return one day, probably in the next ten-fifteen years, just like how vinyl did. I don't collect to sell, but I collect to hold a piece of 70s prog history (or 90s/00s in the case of CDs).

$2,700 minimum or median amount? That's not a really big vinyl collection IMHO. My median is about $5,100 and I think I have a small collection. 
Ha!!! I actually read his post as 2,700 records after he said pretty big vinyl collection.....My median value is showing about $23K. Although it could show $123K as I'm never selling. Regardless, the size is not too important as much as what joy you get out of your records when you spin them.
I remember reading that most collectors only listen to about 30% of their collection on avg regularly, kinda makes sense if you have 100 records that the bulk of what you spin is about 30 records regularly...

Something to ponder it seems.......Cool

My current LP/CD collection has a replacement value of approx. $51,000.00 CND, and I consider that a moderate collection LOL

Not from NZ but I traveled there for business a few times, a lovely country that I need to return to soon. Problem is that is a spendy tix from the US Cry, I have several friends I need to visit.

My Third is a Holland press, and is NM-/VG+++, I'd value mine at about USD65.00.......but I would never sell it. Thumbs Down. I also keep most of my records on Discogs.

Speaking of Discogs here is a great interview with CEO and COO of Discogs....

Today's impulse purchase.

I heard that a, somewhat local (25 minute drive), video game store was selling used records. So since I had to head that way this morning I dropped in before I left town and was completely surprised at both the volume and the price/quality they had available.
I grabbed these two and left behind about 7 others I had already pulled out and was walking around with before realizing it wasn't in my budget right now. Cry
Astra was $15, Ammerland was $25, more than fair I think.

I also really like the new TPT album, I much prefer side 2. It is extremely well mastered, sounds excellent very detailed and fills room with great stuff.
Side 1 to me has too much of the Bruce solo album influence, meaning its very melancholy. When TPT play faster, harder more towards a prog metalish sound that to me is when they can shine. Like I really like Someone Here Is Missing, those songs kick butt....

Very good album thou...

The KC, WShorter found at a record shop in San Rafael CA........My wife picked out a bunch of Elvis 45s in original record sleeves. She has been pushing me to buy a juke box player, she likes 45s.
