What have I gotten myself into?

Over the holidays, Jillian and I took the plunge into hi-fi, and bought a new stereo and turntable.1 It’s something that we’ve wanted for a long time, but never really considered until we were relatively permanent in our location. The world of hi-fi is a little intimidating, especially regarding vinyl. Nevertheless, fidelity aside, I’ve found that playing physical vinyl records, or even CDs, forces me into a more engaged act of listening than when I stream music.
