Awesome collection Freddie. If you ever do feel like cataloguing your collection, Collectorz.com offers a great suite of options, including an online database, Windows software, and iOS apps that all sync. You can add albums by scanning a bar code, or entering a catalog number or artist/title and select from their database. It works pretty well for me most of the time, although I’m only at about 1,000 albums.

As for RCMs, my VPI HW-16.5 still works after 27 years. Cleaning the felt on the pick-up tubes, I've realized, is a good idea. I also bought some new Mobile Fidelity brushes and a Zerostat, despite the fact I hardly play records these days. That needs to change, as I've started buying again.

It's an odd story. Years ago a collector was murdered and her family didn't want the huge collection. I wanted it for all the classical music box sets it contained, but didn't really want a lot of the other titles (my wife did like all the movie soundtracks though). Anyway, their position was take it all or take none. So...

I have to admit I've done a poor job at organizing the collection. I have all of my own LP's and all the remasters that I've bought alphabetized and organized on a separate part of the shelf system and I have a good understanding of the classical box sets. As for the rest, its hunt and peck.

I really need to get into it and do something about it or put a lot of titles up for sale. Selling LP's By The Pound...

You never now - I have a couple of good friends in Lafayette, and it’s on my short list for post-Omicron travel, so NOLA would be on the itinerary for sure.

@freddieferric - add me to the list of folks interested in the collection if you sold big portions or all of it. Could be a quite interesting project. Of course, tony has dibs!

Lafayette huh. Home of the Rajin' Cajuns, my older brothers alma mater. I have a nephew that lives in Lafayette.

Hit me up when you get here.

The "genesis" of an idea. I'm sure you'll figure something out.

I have been considering a new RCM and the Degritter has me interested. The only thing I would worry is if it needed to be serviced and where that would be in the US. Do they have a service center or would you take it back to your dealer. My only dealer is a couple of hours away.

I received my Degritter 2 weeks ahead of expected delivery time, it's been running non stop, over 200 records cleaned (2800 to go LOL), very pleased with this unit
