    I've been doing a lot of "Lounging" to listen to this much music. I wonder what this month will bring?

    Dre,

    Thanks, your journal's really impressive and I enjoyed reading about all the different albums (might even buy up some of them on CD). I might be in spending trouble if you keep doing this... :)

    Michael,

    This is why I built the audio system to begin with. To listen to music. Fortunately, the turntable has allowed me to stretch my music listening an order of magnitude further. This is because to the ability to get used LPs much cheaper than the cost of CDs. I can explore all sorts of music now. Not to get into the sound of vinyl, but it's very pleasing to listen to. This makes it even more enjoyable thanks to owning a record cleaning machine.

    I hope you enjoy whatever you choose to purchase from last month's list.

    Dre
