At the tail end of last year I got myself a simple vinyl set-up - a Dual 505 deck and a Cambridge Audio amp. Both items were in excess of 35 years old and they were bought from eBay.
I was a bit surprised to find that with some new cables both items worked perfectly and they worked very well with some old Wharfedale speakers I had been gifted.
It's the first time for about 20 years that I have played any vinyl LPs or singles - of which I used to have hundreds and now have less than 12. I sold them all about 15 years ago on eBay, so perhaps it is fitting that I am spending some of that money on eBay to get started again.
