It’s Still Rock & Roll To Me | My Vinyl Collection

I started collecting vinyls in 2011. My parents and I were walking down Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles, California when we passed the biggest LP store ever. Vinyls were just starting to make a come back and my generation quickly became interested. The day we got back to Canada my dad pulled out his dusty old turntable, hooked it up to his receiver and purchased a new needle for the turntable. He taught me everything I needed to know about turntables and receivers and next thing you know he’s constantly on ebay and craigslist looking for vintage Pioneer receivers because his just wasn’t good enough. He purchased one for himself and a year later I got a Pioneer SX 780 for Christmas. It’s almost in mint condition but I really need to bring it in to get serviced as it has some minor flaws with the mechanics that I would like to get fixed. They are very expensive to repair since they are vintage and there’s not too many people out there who have the knowledge or interest to fix them.
