Maybe every month would be the best time period, obviously vinyls will be the main thing but theres repairs and equipment to factor in as well.

Vote in the poll, safe.

On the CDs much more now so a lot less then i used to spend, i can't justify spending £6 on 2 tunes anymore.

They get played average 1-2 hours a day by various ppl with different skill levels. Also stupid mash-heads leaving records running in the run-out groove for hours at a time, my pet hate!!

The carts I was using (ortofon concord pro s) sound nice but I was spending £75 every 4 months replacing the stylii as they just got bent or snapped off. So I bought some shure M44-7G scratch carts for 110 and they seem to be holding up well.only had em 2 weeks though so I cant comment on their longevity

I only change my needles when they start to jump all the fuckin time, usually every 12 - 18 months or so...

I've got ortofon concorde pro-s too, I rate them man, sound good, easy tracking, don't skip a lot...

Pretty skint these days so can't afford fuck all at the moment - but just found out I'm getting a bonus of work at the end of the month - nearly 600 notes, which is sweet...

Course once Mr Taxman gas taken his cut I'll be left with half that, but still, every little helps!

think i spend around £40 - £70 a month and that's usually just on vinyl. definately not a cheap hobby...

in all fairness, they break 'em, they should pay for new ones!
why should you allow "mash-heads" to destroy your hard earned equipment?

Man your proper lucky, 5 years is a looong time - I'd probably spend about 20 - 30 a week, maybe more if there's enough good tunes out! i'd replace styli once the coloured tab fades - probably ever 4 - 6 months if I'm lucky..:hagglers:
