It's not terribly uncommon these days to find turntables and even
vacuum-tube amplifiers and tuners at high-end audio shops; some believe that
vinyl sounds better. Also, there is the regrettable practice in some
contemporary music of mixing in the sound of a needle being scratched in
various ways over the surface of a record, a practice that makes me quiver
with revulsion and cringe at the thought of a good record and expensive
diamond needle going to waste.

also just recently got a CD Doctor for Christmas. It repairs any scratches
in DVD's, CD's, or CD ROM's. It also seems to protect them to some degree.
IT only costs about $50.00 total, I think it's a good deal.
I need to look into that. My friend and housemate-to-be has a multiple-disc
set with one damaged disc--always annoying, because you can't just go out
and replace the one disc. (I had to do this once when I borrowed a David
Bowie four-disc set, scratched one disc, and ended up searching high and low
for a replacement set.)
