    Acrylic Platter Mat or Whole Acrylic Platter?

    I use a Vinyl Passion acrylic mat and I like it better than anything else I've tried. Don't think you will go wrong with the Project equivalent whichever option you choose. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    RIP Freddie Starr

    The hamster thing was made up by Max Clifford apparently. Agree though, I didn't find him funny. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Lid for Velvet Vortex

    Thought any other VV users might be interested in the new lid I have got for the machine. Not exactly DIY as I had it made but I did the measurements so at least that bit was me [emoji6]. Pictures here Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    My son releases his first single

    That is very good. Surprised I liked it as much as I did. I was expecting some quite basic indie stuff but there is much more to it than that. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    15 inches

    The first records made were about 15" in size weren't They? I saw one at an exhibition in London last year. I would imagine the decks capable of playing them are very rare indeed. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  10. Yes John's room was great. Shame I didn't get to stay longer, especially to have another listen to that German phono stage that he brought to the bake off last year. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Coloured vinyl - can of worms content

    If I have a choice of black or coloured for new vinyl I go for the black because coloured is sometimes crap. Unless it's by Music on Vinyl in which case it will be excellent whatever the colour. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    Should you repair album sleeves?

    I repair the sleeves where the glue has dried out because it gets on my nerves putting records back into awkward sleeves. A bit of double sided sticky tape sorts it. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk

    New documentary on vintage audio

    But why does it matter? Surely it's about the subject itself, not the race or gender of the people who are involved. If I listen to Nigerian afrobeat music I couldn't care less that everybody involved is a black African male. It hadn't even occurred to me until just now, and why should it. The fact is that female audiophiles are in such a tiny minority that if you include one in a documentary you could reasonably be accused of deliberately misrepresenting the true demographics.

    Newbies at Kegworth 2019

    Really? It seemed to me that Scalford was a lot bigger and that there were more people there than at Kegworth, but maybe it's just my memory. Happy to be corrected. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
