Record Playing System Details

I am posting my system details for those who like building stereo systems. My system focuses on vinyl playback. It's a hybrid of car and home audio components the system is alos connected to the computer for recording LPs to CDr. Many of my coponentes were found used, DIY, or in need of repair. As an audio fan I'm engaged in the lifelong quest for "better sound"; however, I like to be practical. So far the sound is very pleasing with a nod to lush vocals and warm sound.
