Bumping with what I got
>Rubber Soul, original Brazilian release in fake mono
>Remain in Light, late 80's reissue (sounds really punchy and loud in a good way, I wonder if the original is the same)
>The Mollusk, original LP from UK
>Exuma, Brazilian LP in mono, got it for 7 bucks
On the way:
>Deathspell Omega - Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice 2xLP, probably the most recent repress
>Pan.Thy.Monium's Dawn of Dreams and Khaooohs, in blue and gold/black vinyl respectively
Newest stuff but here's my collection http://www.discogs.com/user/darumswizel/collection
Fat Beats had a pretty good sale over the weekend and got these two for pretty cheap. Never listened to Tobacco's solo stuff, but I really like Black Moth and figured I'd like this.
>Newbury Records pressing of The Money Store
My old flea market turntable finally died, so I picked up an LP120. Won't be sitting on the receiver once I move to my new spot in a few weeks.
>being dumb enough to not know about the inferior sound quality of modern vinyl releases
how.... how is that image related at all.
Don't worry I read the whole manual before I touched the fucking thing. I don't want to wreck the stylus or my records by having the couterweight all fucked.
Just picked this up today. It's a french reissue and they fucked up the art with fucking logos, but the record itself is in great condition. Sounds clean and isn't warped at all. It was on my wantlist for a long time, but once Bowie died I figured it was as good a time as any to finally pick it up.
I'm hearing a some clipping on vocals on a few of my albums but not on others. The ones I'm hearing it on are all original pressings from 67-95 so I'm wondering if they're just worn, if that's just a mastering thing, or if my counter weight should be adjusted. I have an SL-1200.
yes, but thats the same as saying not all old recordings sound good.
its not fucking heart surgery, its a majority thing, just because there is a margin of error doesn't mean its wrong.
because they are proud to be part of the club, and I've yet to see a system posted on /mu/ or /g/ that is substantial enough to make the jump from the 1200/lp120's to spend any more money.
The closest i've seen was hornloaded, but i have no clue if that fucktard still post over on /g/.
aside from him the money spent is not worth buying anything more.
Yeah I just remembered I never recalibrated it after I moved and I probably should've.
Does anyone have a pdf or something of the part of the manual that talks about balancing the stylus?
Blackstar - David Bowie
TNT - Tortoise
Laughing Stock - Talk Talk
Mother 2 OST
Pro-Ject Essential II
NAD C 326BEE
PSB Alpha Series bookshelf speakers
the balance and antiskate are done per the cartidges specs.
the counterweight is level to the horizon based on the hight of the tonearm.
you need a guide to set tracking, or you can guess.
Welp, I was planning on getting an AT LP-120 this weekend, but now I can't for about 6 weeks. Should I blow what I'd saved up on some stuff I think might sell out while I wait or keep sitting on it?
>framed Joe's Garage
Tangentially related, I need a new CD player for my stack, I'd like to be able to do CD, SACD, and HDCD, but searching around I'm not finding any decent answers, was wondering if anyone here had some ideas. Everything but my table is flea market stuff, so I don't need audiophile smoke and mirrors, I'm just looking for the cheapest at the shenzhen market sort of thing
>he unironically plays his music on vinyl.
LP120 is the safest bet, hence why most people use it or the almost identical table it was modeled after. At a bare minimum, it needs a counterweight. Sound quality is one thing but with out a proper counterweight, you're potentially actively destroying your records
wait, does the 120 not come with a counterweight anymore? or is it shit?
I recently found a copy of Mellow Gold in a record shop under the new section. Ended up getting it thinking it was to good to be true to see a repressing I hadn't heard about and it turns out I was right. In my ignorance I got a shitty bootleg on a marbled colored record that sounds like it's been pressed from a record recorded from another record rip. First time I've done this so I guess you live and you learn on this kinda stuff.
At least I learned that discogs can sometimes give insight into what you're getting yourself into. Hopefully the shop will exchange it for me.
I have a bunch of pictures actually if anyone's here
