I was around then so I don't really need to. Just curious how much of it you really needed? Can't you consolidate to fewer formats? Even if you are unwilling to digitize it all, I'm still thinking you can get the count down some. Video is always a choir but it's not so bad to switch to digital for the audio stuff. You can make the case even just based on the fact that analog has a fairly short life expectancy and digital is forever.

Then you could probably support selected pieces of your older gear as well as newer stuff. Another option would be to get an extra analog switch like these http://r.ebay.com/wRs7oZ

Nothing lasts forever James. And I did source an identical unit to the above! So I'm back in biz for now.

If need be, I'll keep all my analogs plugged into this JVC, and use the tape outs to the CD in on a modern mostly digital HDMI from JVC or Yamie.

I'm not going to sit by a PC transferring MONTHS worth of vinyl & cassette to digital formats.

I don't disagree with the time issue of transferring analog since it generally has to be done at 1x. I've found that many older music releases are available these days on cd new in the $5 to $7 range. I'm always surprised that I can find some pretty obscure material on cd. About 15 years ago I went through the box of vinyl we still had and was able to find everything we didn't have on cd yet. Even the Neil Merryweather and the Space Rangers albums :-) I don't know how many cassettes you have though so that option may still not be good. Vinyl still has a pretty hard core following. I think most of them are using standalone phone pre-amps to connect to the newer gear.

Mostly I was thinking personal video material when I brought up conversion. You were vague about exactly what you had so I thought maybe some vhs or other analog video formats were involved. If you have analog home "movies" I'd suggest it's worth the time or money to transfer them to digital so you don't lose them.

Digital is forever not because the physical media lasts forever but because a copy of digital media is indistinguishable from the original. So the 100th copy of a cd will be a exact match of the first. A 1 terabyte drive will hold over 3,000 cds in a lossless format. I keep my entire 1,200 cd music collection on a hard drive and stream it to the sound systems. I find we use our personal music collection a lot more with it so readily available.. Browse electronically and play with no more effort than turning on the tv and looking for something to watch.

Most new units have several analog inputs. My yamahas all have 2 stereo analog inputs. If what you have is a turntable and a cassette player then you're covered. It's not uncommon to also have a 5.1 analog input of which you can just use the first 2 as yet another analog stereo input. Any blu-ray player will play anything on cd/dvd/blu-ray you have and it can be connected hdmi.

Thanks for the suggs james!

I also forgot to mention: All the analog gear still WORKS! So I'm in no rush to go out and buy all new stuff thank you very much.

I don't do every ios upgrade Apple issues, i don't get a new phone everytime I'm eligible. I still have a (rather) large tube TV in my living room. I don't use it to browse the web or order take-out on - I have my i-Devices and land line and cell phones for those tasks.

You could say I'm pretty satisfied. My stuff does what I need it to. Ain't in no rush.

Sounds like you may be using itunes for at least some of your music. The new yamaha receivers do airplay very well when network connected. They show up in itunes with minimal effort. Pick your music and play.

Keep trying, keep trying!

Your strongest breath will not make the Empire State Bldg sway. LOL


"Pick my music and play"? I do that with my iPod and my Sony 1993 CD changer every day.

Had a changer once. After you get past 5-600 cds changers just aren't the answer anymore.

The thing about using itunes and a larger drive is you can rip your cd's in a lossless format. So you've still got 100% of the original material from the cd. And you can set it up so they are converted to mp3s when they are copied to your ipod so you still get the maximum number of songs on the ipod.

I can control playback from the unit remotes, the computer, the netbook, or my phone.
