New Year on the Turntable

Postby TomMcNally » Wed Jan 01, 2014 6:22 pm

January 1, 2014 ... relaxing at home ... let's listen to some vinyl.

Technics SP-15 >>> diytube Budgie >>> 6SN7 remote controlled preamp >> diytube ST-70 driving 6BG6G's with Heathkit Iron ...
Great sound ... Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Elton John, Peter Frampton, Grateful Dead ... oh look, here's the Beatles White Album,
one of a big pile I snagged at a rock station that went from Vinyl>>CD>>digital.

Hmmm .... censored with a damn cart label. Where's the Goo-Gone?

The scratches add to the charm!

Fine wine comes in glass bottles, not plastic sacks. Therefore the finer electrons are also found in glass bottles.

If it doesn't skip, scuffs and scratches don't bother me much - especially on rock records. My two most scuffed up records are from County Joe & the Fish, and it's like they have a little extra '60's sprinkled on them. (lol)

We used to get a discount on records that were cutouts, but that owner carried it a little too far.

I treated myself to some new vinyl for Christmas. The Zeppelin "Celebration Day" set, the Robert Plant "Band of Joy" double disc, and Fleetwood Mac's new re-release of the self title. That's the only one I'v opened so far. I had been looking for one in better condition than the 2 I have. I put together a collection of all Mac's vinyl stuff going back to the first mono Blue Horizon release. Anyway, I opted for the single LP version. It was also released as a dual 45 rpm set, but I'm glad I got just the single because it was really a nice clean pressing and has fantastic dymanic range. You can really hear the subtlties in Stevie's voice and softer things I'd not heard in the 2 first pressing releases I have. And you can tell they didn't play around much with remixing it. Just a good remasterintg.
