Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

The World's Largest Selection of Turntables

Ear Disc Master turntable

Needle Doctor offers an awe-inspiring variety of turntables. The Minneapolis company has been around for almost 30 years and offers nearly everything an audio junkie could wish for, including replacement cartridges for vintage turntables. I was just browsing their site and realized that we've never mentioned them.

Their turntable selection is billed as "the world's largest." You'll find everything from the incredibly affordable $99 Numark PT01 portable DJ model to high-end works of art such as the $17,000 EAR Disc Master. Anyone who claims that vinyl is dead obviously hasn't taken a look at the hundreds of different turntable designs on the market these days. Workhorse models such as the Technics SL-1200 (first introduced in 1972) are still produced 36 years later, having been through a half dozen updates.

Vintage vinyl can often be found on Craigslist or at garage sales for next to nothing, allowing you to build a vast music collection without breaking the bank. There's also a growing movement to release (or re-release) limited edition LP versions of major albums, although these are often pricey. Nevertheless, you will be pleasantly surprised to discover how good modern records sound.
