Crafting your record player of choice will help you give yourself a new identity. Back in the 1940’s most people have a great setting for their music of choice. Classic players can go for hundreds of thousands of dollars these days. While you are becoming an expert at them, you will most likely become rich just from this knowledge.
The amount of time you spend learning about record players from the 50’s will give you many friends from that era. You will also be able to connect with your grandparents.
