Why does your girlfriend look like this, Montie? Also, is the AT LP-120 a good turntable?
>Better than a hand that 4 sure.
That's not much of a compliment, Montie. Why do your girlfriend's teeth look so weird?
Her teeth look like that because she's so small and her familey can't afford braces. Her teeth used to be normal until her larger teeth came in.
She's looking into payment plans now about it.
I really think its a shitty situation and she's very insecure about it.
Does she know that people are posting her face on /mu/? Maybe you should drop your trip so that people stop doing it.
And that girl doesn't look small to me. You should tell her to cut down on the burgers.
Last night my left channel started buzzing. I thought the problem was with the RCA adapter, so I soldered a new one to the cable, but it's still buzzing. It's apparently something inside the turntable itself, which I don't want to sped the time fixing, so I ordered an LP120 to replace it last night.
This record player lasted way longer than I thought it would (got it from a flea market for ~30 and it's laster 5 years) so it's okay. Just means I can't listen to records until Tuesday.
I mean I'm not a person who saves pics of her and posts them, but it's at the very least partially your fault that she's getting posted on this board.
It's your fault for tripping and releasing your personal info like a retard, not that I'm condoning the invasion of privacy that resulted in those pics.
Stop tripping though for real though. All this stuff will surely stop and people will leave you alone. This is long past the peak of "trip culture", so anyone who still has one is seen as a huge joke.
My original press of Dark side of the Moon sounds so bad
I wasn't saying that other people should or weren't responsible for violating his privacy.
Just that the fact that he's given out his personal info through sheer stupidity is his own fault in a way, and he enabled these people to dig around on his facebook and find his girlfriend.
After a while of not using it, I was listening to something on my LP-120 and then suddenly the tray started to just stop spinning on its own.
What gives, /mu/?
>most recent cop
>TFW couldn't afford the 50 euro shipping costs for Giles Corey - S/T and the Flenser are a bunch of non-communicative dickweeds.
the pressing actually wasn't that great, surprisingly. I got the red one. THe sound quality isn't great, but idk the liner notes proudly states "recorded in bedrooms across Connecticut".
Managed to cop a Linn Sondek LP12 with a Ittok tonearm in great condition (no cartridge) for $500. What's a good high end cartridge to get? Are moving coil cartridges worth it? Considering getting a AT33EV.
kill yourself, dipshit
why should he expect a bunch of retards to snoop through his shit and post pictures of his girlfriend on fucking /mu/ of all places? Time to grow up, buddy
>same OP pic as last night
I'll post the same thing I posted last night as well, then
>the Flenser are a bunch of non-communicative dickweeds
Seriously, I finally emailed them about my boxset since it still hasn't shipped, and they haven't responded. They said that 98% of preorders had shipped like 2 weeks ago. At least tell me what's up with mine?
Their Facebook even says they 'typically respond in a few hours' which is bullshit. I've e-mailed them and contacted them several times on Facebook but they still haven't replied. It even said they read my message but they still don't say anything.
It sucks less then. I'll just spend my money on different records or whatever. Done with those guys.
The funny thing is I've ordered from them two other times, once a few months ago and the other I placed right after I ordered the Giles box, and both times the packages arrived about a week after I ordered. I dunno what's going on this time, but i'm getting really impatient. More than anything I wanna read the book
i don't know or care who montie is, just letting you know this is some weak shit. This place is seriously overrun with kids now.
why would someone bother hiding their identity here? this is /mu/ in 2016, not /b/ in 2006. You fucking idiot teens missed the epic raid boat.
sure, tripfags are annoying, but what's even worse are the insecure little babbys who like to whine about them every chance they get
dan's personal phone number used to be on the paypal account as a customer service default line. i'm assuming he took it off but it's worth looking if you want to freak him out and get him to send you your shit.
worked for me.
what's your most prized piece in your collection?

Mostly boils down to knowing which records are rare and which records aren't. Always price-check before buying. And if it is second hand always ask to inspect. If a record looks different from what you expected it to look like it sometimes is worth a lot more, but it requires a trained eye. Try buying from people who buy in bulk and just slap the same price on every record so you can bargain and get good prices.
only thing I ever had to buy from discogs
paid $50 for a single, but no regrets here
Would really love to identify these speakers, they're probably old Emerson's, ad they were with an emerson amp when I picked them up, but they have no markings anywhere on them.
Got this recently, decided to break the seal last night and play it. Best sounding album on vinyl I've ever heard.
Of course I have aux in right now and not a vinyl. Just set it up today, the player has good speakers and the box underneath feeds its sound to two other speakers on other sides of the room.
Had a walmart giftcard and got this.
Loving the sound quality on all of them so far.
Finally found Gregor Samsa's 55:12 for a reasonable price! Didn't even know it was clear vinyl until I got it.
They're a little worn, but I got them from a guy I used to work for. They spent many years in a garage, but held up pretty well Considering. Best sounding speakers I've heard yet honestly.
Got the special edition of bowies second album in december
I haven't got much to be proud of, but holy shit, my GF bought me Thick as a Brick first print for my birthday. I haven't tried it yet, but man, it feels great just to have that newspaper.
>still no vinyl releases of Nujabes albums
Fucking why, it would be the best invest any label could do from a commercial point of view, everyone has been waiting for this to happen for years.
r8, got it a few weeks ago
The bottom one is a Mitsu disc player (so CD player)
Second from bottom is a double cassette deck (so it holds two tapes)
Third one from the bottom is the sterio tuner preamp
And the top one is a regular amplifier
ATLP-120 is the turntable hooked up to two DCM CX-17 speakers.
It's loud and works really well even though it looks super bulky.
Just brought my turntable to my dorm. Gonna buy some cheap speakers for it soon

Hey guys, I bought a record on discogs that was supposed to be mint condition, but opened. I bought it from a reputable store in Germany but came with a defect.
The seller wants me to pay the shipping cost, do I have to in this case? And if not how do I make sure they pay for it?
More Big Black (reissue), the one on the right is a limited pressing of Primus' Green Naugahyde, and Blind Illusion is the band Les and Ler were in before Primus.
I like Primus.
Damn I almost got that at my last trip too, kinda regret not doing it
It's a piece of shit. Buy at least the AT-LP120 or U-Turn Orbit with cue lever. You'll also need a RIAA preamp (especially for the latter), an amplifier/receiver and a pair of speakers.
If on budget, find vintage on Craigslist or locally.
Beatles twist and shout lp, The Doors 13, Elvis Aloha from hawaii
Old sanyo gxt stereo
Should I upgrade to the Pro-ject Essentials II?

Maggot Brain - Funkadelic
Starsailor - Tim Buckley
Their Satanic Majesties Request - Rolling Stones (holographic orignial 1967)
and this: >>61817481
Sanyo gxt 838 with some cheap JVC speakers. Thought Id start there and see where it goes. But now that i've gotten 50+LPs and have a habit of listening, I'd like to get a pro-ject and some better speakers and a good phono
This arrived 20 minutes ago which I bought off discogs. I've also got Blackstar that just got shipped too, as well as New Bermuda and I Love You Honeybear. Gon' be a good week.
My copy of Giles Corey should be finally fucking arriving soon
Oh cool it's the £300 version
remain in light (clear version), depression cherry
sony pslx3, samson resolv a6 speakers, samson mixer/preamp/eq
i love the look of those turntables
nice ive been looking for a copy of songs about fucking
got a copy of atomizer (first edition) from friend's mom
mahavishnu orchestra is got tier
beach house is good but at the popularity level of butt-indie
i once paid 40 dollars for a european copy of a jukebox 45 of total mass retain
i still dont regret it
Thanks, anon. That Chenaux record was my favorite of last year, and the only album I really enjoyed from last year from a musician I wasn't already aware of. Encouraged me to listen to the rest of his discog, which isn't as good, but he's on a pretty linear path of getting better to my ears; can't wait for his next effort.
Still waiting on TNT repress and Mother 2 OST. Also preordered Laughing Stock last night.
i really don't have much impressive shit but a few ones i am happy i own are
NM condition Rush - 2112 from 1976
NM condition The Cure - Faith from 1981
NM condition of Rubber Soul from 1965 (in mono but the north american version)
my copies of Ummagumma, Atom Heart Mother and Meddle by Pink Floyd
really nothing too impressive but those are some of my favourite ones
How do you guys acquire shit? I usually just go on discogs, ebay, or amazon and buy the shit I want but it feels... too easy, you know what I mean? I find I'm getting a lot of cool shit I like but I'm just burning cash with no effort.
I might try seeking out yardsales or thrift stores, just for the thrill of the hunt you know.
I'm kind of entry level <100 vinyls.
What should an entry level like me get as far as listening equipment goes, besides obvious shite like a turntable and speakers (both of which need to be replaced anyway). I get daunted by pictures like the OP's with all of them stacks of knobs and buttons and so forth. Help a newfriend out?
>Pic is recent cops
don't be daunted by OP, he has CD receivers and tape receivers and shit, not all of it is turntable
basically you want a turntable, preamp, amplifier(so a studio system), and speakers
>preamp, amplifier(so a studio system), and speakers
I know what I'd like to eventually get for a turntable but could you recommend some cheapish preamps/amplifiers? I'm also in the market for speakers but I just don't know a lot about amps.
I find good shit at thrift stores often, for $1. Recent pickups include Rush Moving Pictures, original masterdisk near mint and Journey Escape original pressing also near mint for $1 each.
this preamp is pretty good, not too expensive, you could probably find a cheaper one if $40 is too much
these are the speakers I use, they're fucking great for <$100
The Flaming Lips - Yoshimi battles the pink robots
Dr. Octagon -Dr. Octagonocologyst
David Bowie - Hunky Dory
Interpol - El Pintor
Cattle Decapitation - Monolith of Inhumanity / The Anthropocene Extinction
Eminem - Slim Shady LP
Eurythmics - Be Yourself Tonight
Interpol - Turn On The Bright Lights
Vektor - Outer Isolation
Rate my choices
Is this a good idea?
Look for something at thrift stores. Might take a few weeks to find something decent, but often early 90s good recievers show up for $15 at goodwill. I passed on a nice Onkyo reciever today since I don't need one, $15, and it looked like new.
If you can find one of these I highly recommend it. NAD PP-1 phono preamp sounds great and blows away the built in one in my Onkyo reciever. Newer version in the PP-2 I believe.
I have a nice Pioneer receiver in my closet, but it doesn't work properly. The sound is super quiet and tinny, even through headphones. Anybody know what could be causing this and if there's a simple fix?
well my gf placed me with a now difficult task, finding david bowie's rise and fall. all copies seem to be off the shelf, and now 300% marked up online. i'll tell her that and let her know her timing is shit.
Phono. I tested all of the inputs by connecting something else to them, and it does the same thing through all of them. My speakers and turntable work just fine with my Technics receiver.
I'm fairly certain that nobody else cares about this album, but I've been looking for it for years and finally obtained it.
Most recent, Plaid Trainer, Venetian Snares Shit Fuckers!!! and AFX Analord 10
>He willingly pays money for Beach House albums.
You sinply have the worst taste in music. Like, you culd've used that gift card for so many better things. Groceries, underwear, AA batteries, Chewing gum, hair spray, literally anything else in the store and, yet, you choose to waste your fianances on this absolute tripe. Shame on you.
>Puts The Money Store out in front like it's something to be proud of and not a very easily acessable, mass-produced and common record.
>it's worth at least 200 dollars
It's only worth that much to someone that would pay that much for that record, no one would pay that much for that record unless they were a DG fan, if they're a DG fan they don't really care that much about music. It's a Catch 22.
>TFW you realize that Death Grips original printings are the Yeezy clothing of music.
>Viewing the Death Grips haters as exceptionally unattractive and not the Death Grips fan.
No one in high school has any sense of fashion. I bet the guy that has the Death Grips album wears a North Face windbreaker with a toque of an unmatched color.
does anybody here know how shipping prices work at all
>want to buy a triple vinyl from inavada records which is located in the uk because it's on sale for $24, and i can't order anything else from blood music
>type in shipping to california
>shipping costs $21
>shipping two 2 disc albums to my address from blood music which is located in findland which is farther away from me than the UK but costs only $9.50 to have it shipped
fucking how and as a bonus question how the fuck does it cost $7.50 to send a record to the US, but 20 fucking dollars to have the label send it to the netherlands which is alot closer?
Severly outdated picture but
trying to decide to get one record between a few video game soundtracks like banjo kazooie, journey, faster than light, earthbound and uncharted, or something from denovali like gottes synthesizer, L'oceano delle onde che restano onde per sempre, or something from either saffronkeira, or piano interrupted
The $200 Exmilitary comments were directed to >>61830728 specifically.
To address you two's comments: If the copy of the album's a bootleg, why is it being flaunted as a "prized piece"? Bootlegs of ExM go for the price of your average record, and are just about as common.
Long story short, >>61818217 post is absolute nonsense and completely unnecessary.
guy from previous thread here
turntable platter which wont turn is still stuck and wont come out after heating it and wiggling it, waiting and dad yanking the shit out of it for two days. wat do
He replied to a post asking what "your most prized piece in your collection" is, and in his reply he posted a picture of a collection of unmentionable albums with a copy of Exmilitary in the center of the picture. How is it not being flaunted as a "prized piece"? And even if you are right and it isn't being touted as a "prized piece" then why did he even post the picture in question in this thread?
That someone who's most prized pieces are an artificially overpriced Death Grips album and a bunch of bargain bin filler is buying records for the image and not because they actually like music and like to support their favorite artists. In other words,>>61818217 is poseur scum and deserves to be mocked in a public forum.
may I ask what the point is? I have all of my favorite music on FLAC, and it didn't cost me a dime. is it really worth hundreds of dollars to you to be able to collect your music in a physical format? how is it any difference from spending tons of cash on baseball or magic cards or some other collection? I can see maybe wanting a copy of your favorite album to hang on the wall as decor or something, but not a whole collection. why do you do it, /mu/? I get that there's some intangible draw, but it's expensive and I can't see any reason to get into it. do you really enjoy it that much? why?
I bought 2 records for $4 yesterday and one the other day for 99 cents. It's not that bad. You physically have something and you can enjoy the hell out of having to handle something and take care of something.
It's also a social thing. You have to go out and buy vinyl in a store. You can make some great friendships.
It's the equivalent of buying that one of a kind Wu-Tang album and posting that you have it, even though everyone knows that Wu-Tang hasn't produced anything of any worth since '97. Yeah it's rare, and worth a lot of money, but it's not a good album.
>is it really worth hundreds of dollars to you to be able to collect your music in a physical format?
>how is it any difference from spending tons of cash on baseball or magic cards or some other collection?
What's wrong with collecting? But unlike baseball cards, you also get music in it.
