He's just turned 15 and asked for deck in his bedroom , i had a Pl12 ( that his grandad gave to me ,sadly he's recently passed away ) its fitted with a ortofon blue .
A mate sold me the amp and gave me a CD player , the Kef’s i had in the loft
Sounds great and he loves it 👍

Only downside is he's asking to borrow my vinyl 👀 , I've told him to go and get a job to buy his own ! ( I’ve given him some to get him started )

Wish my setup was this good at his age . 41871057-08A6-4545-9F1B-CFBB49FA1761.jpeg 964420B9-0783-45D6-9CB0-BD4795992A6A.jpeg

Update , well two months in he's killed his 2m blue ( left a record spinning ..gerrrr)
So ordered him a 2m red and stopping £2 a week from his pocket money until he's paid it off 🤪

We don't throw stones at that mistake . Fell asleep to the run out groove and woke up to the run out groove :whistle:

We've all done it. Trashed a cart I mean! It's an early lesson and at least it wasn't a hugely expensive one. He'll be more careful in future.
Well done to you though for helping him onto an enlightened path!

I remember some lovely speakers in my bedroom at home .. The Wharfedale E70’s come to mind .
But what a great start for your lad .
I agree , you buys your own vinyl . Although I was left a lovely collection by an uncle after he passed away …He’s just binding his time lol !!!!

My 14 year old grandson came to see me yesterday, he wants to start playing vinyl. "Have you got a spare record deck Pops?" knowing full well I have a loft full of old Hi-Fi! :ROFLMAO: . So up in the loft we go, and lo and behold I had 3 up there! I decided the Technics SL1500 would probably best suit him, and found a decent Ortofon FF15e to go with it. He has some active Yamaha speakers, so I need to find him a phonostage, as I do not have a spare one. Any way I think he will be one happy lad, I will also donate, some LP's to start him off,

I helped a mate's nephews (about 14 years) on the way with a Jap deck, a Marantz amp donated by a Wammer and a pair of speakers.
Its nice that they are interested.
They were thrilled to bits and it only cost their dad £163 (including rack).
