I broke my right tibia and fibula on Jul 2. I have to use a walker to get around. It could be months before I'm fully operational. Playing LPs is pretty much a thing of the past. With the BDP-pi and attached DAC (alas, not a Bryston DAC), I can access almost all of my record and CD collection from the comfort of my recliner chair. Suddenly, all of that earlier work I did of "ripping" my collection to hard disk doesn't seem so silly anymore.
