I was a teen record collector (actually, I was asking for records when I 
was in Kindergarten).  I got it from my parents who were both trombone 
players.  Mom is a band director and Dad was something of an 
audiophile.  He had one of those big quad systems with a Marantz 4300 
receiver (sounds like absolute crap compared to what I have now) and 
four JBL Century L100 speakers (again, not a good sounding speaker 
compared to almost anything decent nowadays).  The sound was very big.  
We had that crazy Garrard 100 Zero turntable that had the pivoting 
headshell for no tracking error.  It made a big impression with Mancini, 
Bernstein, Sgt Peppers, The Thundering Herd, Living Presence, etc...  
All really big sounding stuff.  I think starting early and often is key 
to indoctrination.  I really don't have a choice but to be an audiophile 
and music lover.  I did try to go digital a couple times, but will 
always have a soft place in my heart for vinyl.
