I've been using turntable just for the last week. For me, what's been the best part of it is the mini-community aspect - there's a facebook group around the room I frequent most often, and it has regulars and in-jokes. The service isn't perfect, but that just means there's lots of room for improvement and further innovation. Of course, any changes to the core service will have to clear the RIAA anti-innovation hurdle. As it is, It's already something that I find myself spending a lot of time on - and I've never seen music as a truly social experience until now.
