Well, well... If it isn't our young friend Nate! Long time, no see - - when are you coming over to the Finger Lakes again?

It's nice to see a photo of your room and that 8-35 we've heard about. And that Edison C 200 looks much better in your room than it did in my basement! Your room reminds me very much of mine about 45 years ago. I'll bet you will have some of those machines 45 years from now - just as I do!

For those who haven't had the pleasure of meeting Nate (we must get him to the Wayne show one of these days), you'll know him if you see him - all 6 feet 6 inches of him! He's built like a linebacker because that's what he was in high school. Nowadays he works in a legal firm, and is the gentlest, most courteous 20-something you're likely to meet. He really knows his acoustic records and recording artists too. I think of guys like Nate as the real future of our hobby. And he has a talent for turning up treasure! :)

Thanks for the kind words George- I'm honored! I'm always up for a trip to the Finger Lakes, weather permitting.

Making it to Wayne is my goal this year. It's somewhere I have always wanted to get to!

Hello,
My main Phonograph room is about 12'x 16'. The walls slope up to form the roof so i could not mount any shelves on the walls. I built a two tier system from two by fours and 24" white shelving around the room. In the center of the room I built a free standing two tier unit.

Hello,
My second Phonograph room is a 10"x 12' Bedroom. I have a number of uprights in this room so I only have two tier shelving on one wall.

Quite an impressive collection. Thanks for sharing it on the forum.

Very nice collection, Pete. And I think you must take the prize for "Most Space Efficient." :)

I have displayed pieces both as accent pieces in my home and in a dedicated display space. I really prefer pieces that are displayed as accent pieces, but you can only display so many accent pieces.

Beautifully displayed in a beautiful home - congratulations!

That's an impressive display of early discs too. I've never seen so many 5.5" U.S. Berliners in one place!
