    Bake off March 23rd in TN8

    Graham, The PL-90 is a big deck and will need a table or shelf approx 26" wide x 20" deep min, The wand/arm will have a Kiseki purple heart sapphire m/c cartridge fitted, Will you therefore have a shelf or table for the t/t? and will there be an earthed pre-amp or S.U.T to connect the t/t too ?

    Hello Graham, I would like to be considered and I could bring along my turntable which is still boxed after I took it to john's (Lurch's) bakeoff last year as it is still in the box.

    Can a 12" tonearm do without bias adjustment?

    The way that I look at it is that the turntable has to be perfectly level in all planes and even then a bubble level is never perfect, so the way I deal with the bias is that once the weight of the cartridge has been set I then let the arm freely bounce and if it deviates either way l then make my bias adjustment accordingly so that the arm bounces plumb and then it's often very minimal bias adjustment.

    Best Karelia Suite..

    Jack. If you just wanted to listen to the Karelia Suite Intermezzo then I would highly recommend the one from the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra which is on youtube, I have listened to many and this one in particular is quite outstanding especially the horns. Enjoy. Paul

    Record cleaners

    I use an ultrasonic cleaner and clean records at 5 at a time, you do get quite a bit of detritus that lays in the bottom of the tank, but once washed/cleaned I then leave them in a rack and use a small USB fan to air dry them, once dry then into new sleeves, I have however noticed that it is best to leave the vinyl a couple of weeks to dry fully before I play them, So I wonder if there is any elasticity in the vinyl whilst it goes through the wash process that expands the grooves and then shrinks back over a period of time?

    The last album i bought was

    Picked this up yesterday for a real bargain from that famous auction site, Hardly used and quite superb sound although I would have preferred the vinyl version.

    Cassette deck

    After a recent house move and subsequent redecoration, I thought I would just give my Pioneer CT-91A Cassette player a clean up, and for the first time I removed the cover and was amazed at how well these units are engineered and put together, It has a copper frame/chassis and all screws are copper. Like all formats they have there own characteristics and my preference after vinyl is tape.
