    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.

    2019 Lottery Win Turntable Challenge

    This would be top of my list. Trio/Kenwood L-07D .
  6. My search referred to the wam search section. I managed to get a 250ml can for £3.74 inc del from Car Parts for less who are doing a Black Friday deal which I don't think is to bad so will give it a try, and as you say it states that no residue is left and gets great reviews.
  7. Did a search here and the only item that came up was the (I assume) Standard wd40 cleaner, However now that Maplins is no longer with us, I came across this product and not having used it I was wondering if anyone had and what were the results? As I have just moved house and had a lot of work carried out that was very dusty I thought I would just remove covers to my amps and other components and just spray this direct onto the boards after a gentle brush and hover first, Is this a good idea? Thanks

    How many Brands/Manufacturers in your System?

    Apart from the cartridge its all Pioneer, I know it sounds boring but I am a great believer in in-house engineering.
  15. Thanks again John for the opening up your house to another bakeoff, always good to meet fellow wammers and chat you learn a lot from and yes I would concur that your new cartridge has taken your system up to another level, it is just a shame that I could not stay any longer, but maybe next time.
