  1. There used to be a thread on the lost Linn Forum, but this might still be interesting: Any Majik/Selekt/Akurate/Klimax DSM owner considering to archive/save Vinyl digitally in HiRes should give Songcorder a try. It‘s free - donations to the developer via PayPal are most welcome - and I love Songcorder 🥰 Just listening to Crosby & Nash‘s 1975 „wind and the water“ in a 24/96 version of a superb quality 2016 vinyl reissue I recorded with Songcorder this evening.

    2019 £500 Turntable Challenge

    (Early) New Year greetings to all you vinylistas. I have recently sniffed around a turntable or two for my third "sandpit" system, with you-only-live-once ringing in one ear and being-able-to-eat-would-be-nice ringing in the other; I ultimately decided that discretion is the better part of valour (at least for the rest of 2018...) but looked at some superb tables, both original and modded, with and without arms, with and without carts, belt and direct drive, Japanese and British... at great prices. I thought fellow wammers might like to give their imaginations a workout as a break from the pressures of Christmas and Brexit... not to help me find my own turntable but just as a general exercise in Wamship. (See related threads with other budgets) Here are the competition rules then. Budget £500 (not "if you can stretch...") But you don't need to spend it all! A great looking and sounding deck for £150 will do nicely, thank you Suitable for the widest range of music from gentle classical to full-on rock Complete turntable including deck, arm, cart and power supply (inc any adaptors if not 240v) No restriction on belt/direct drive, MM/MC or country of origin Can be used or new but... ... must not need any repair work or DIY skills (just turntable setup) - so no doer-uppers Must be in very good cosmetic condition (in case anyone finds specific examples) There will be no judging and no prizes. Everyone's a winner here. I might post an example myself later. Enjoy! Nigel

    Vinyl Racks/Display

    Not sure this is in the right place? I'm tired of trying to look at the skinny spine of my records to see what they are, and I want to make a move to record storage that's more like you would find in a record shop, so that I can see the entire front side of the sleeve and flip through as I wish. I've found some bits that have loads of storage, but it seems anything of interest to me is sourced from the US and shipping costs are about the same as the product itself. Has anyone here had the same issue and found an alternative in the UK? Cheers C
  8. The reselling, remastering, reissuing, box setting, cash cow continues with one of THE finest albums of the 90's. The question remains, why does it need to be remastered? Not do a proper job first time round Mr Godrich? https://oknotok17.wasteheadquarters.com/products/boxed-edition

    I've just ordered a new turntable

    So I'm nearly all prepared for manual cleaning of my LPs, with a nice bottle of L'Art du Son and various other bits and bobs, but I wanted a broken turntable to sit the records on as I clean them, to make it easier. Seems to be what a lot of people do. Anyway it's staggering how much money people want for some piece of crap that is spares or repairs, but I have now ordered one. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00I9AXYUQ/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Coming to my nearest Amazon locker tomorrow (didn't know they did Sundays) Not sure if the lack of a spindle will be an issue or not. I'll probably use two microfibre cloths on the "platter" surface, one for the uncleaned side as I do the first side, and the other for the cleaned side as I do the second side. Anyway, seems like a reasonable and cheap alternative to using a busted turntable, plus it will store away in a very small space, which is another consideration. I'll see how I get on and report back, I'm expecting inky blacks to match the platter
  10. PE 1010 Turntable: From: £1,653 German turntable manufacturers Perpetuum Ebner become the 30th brand in Elite Audio's portfolio. The company was first established in 1911 as "PERPETUUM" by Josef Steidinger. Since then it has been evolving and creating high-end audio components for audiophiles across the world. The plate changer PE 10 was introduced in 1949, and is still available today in it's upgraded form, the PE 1010. The brand operated for decades, all the way up to 1973, when it was no longer in operation. Over four decades later the brand was rejuvenated by Wolfgang Epting and WE Audio Systems. The PE 1010 and PE 4040 became the flagship products that brought Perpetuum Ebner back to life. With former engineers from Dual (a brand started by Gebrüder Steidinger) coming on-board, Perpetuum Ebner was back in full-swing. With four different turntables* on its roster, WE Audio Systems is truly reviving the legacy of Josef Steidinger and the rich history of Perpetuum Ebner. Elite Audio is the official UK distributor of WE Audio Systems. We offer an excellent 30-day, no risk trial on selected products allowing you to try out audio components at home with your own system.

    Audio Stories on the BBC

    Two interesting stories today on the Beeb. One on the continuing rise in vinyl sales with predictions of over 4m vinyl sales this year (2017). A lot of people were saying they liked the whole experience of vinyl as well as the lovely sound of vinyl. Not sure too many had turntables but I do not care as long as sales continue. The other story was on R4 on the rise of audio cafes. I went to Spiritland in Kings X and we listened to their £500K system. To be honest it was not that impressive. They were playing bland soul music at a low level. My wife was unimpressed. What has other people's experiences been at these venues? Would it be better to return in the evenings to get a better impression?

    Turntable buzz

    hi all, any members with thoughts on a mysterious buzz that has appeared when playing vinyl. Setup is Rega Planar3 with ortofon mm cartridge (new) and Project phono preamp going into exposure 3010 amp and out to Ruark Equinox speakers. Working really nicely, then I went away for the weekend (teenage son had friends round??). Came back, massive constant buzz on phono input both channels (all other inputs working fine). Buzz much louder than the music. really loud continous buzz. Not like an earth buzz. 1) Removed phono preamp, plugged turntable directly into phono input - very soft (obviously) but you can hear music and no hum 2) Retained phono preamp, disconnected turntable. Still exactly the same massive hum. 3) Removed l and r channel phone input from preamp to amp one by one. Buzzing disappeared from disconnected channel 4) Switched off power to preamp. Buzzing stopped 5) Replaced the leads connecting the preamp to the phono input of the exposure. No difference, still massive buzzing So at this point you're thinking - the phono preamp has gone, right? But no. I borrowed a different phono preamp and the noise was different, but still there, still much louder than the music. What's going on? Any brainwaves greatly appreciated, thanks!

    SALE Record collection for sale

    Here is the collection - 4000 vinyls. Its a merged collection so some duplication of items as a result but an enterprising buyer could sell those on I am sure Some items like the two Kate Bush box sets going on discogs for up to £500, some other albums well over £100. Mostly post rock and indie so limited edition vinyl pressings and first editions in the main. Some more mainstream stuff but not much. Quite a bit of zappa vinyl. Second hand record dealers give about 30-50% of retail price in general but most of these going for retail or above on discogs so that wouldn't be a fair estimate I think. New cost would be around £50k I guess for this collection and it would pretty much the same on discogs. Willing to discount 20% for a quick sale of a whole collection (£40k). I might consider splitting back into the two original collections. Time wasters, chancers, tyre kickers, low ballers, numpties, beggers and micky takers respectfully ignored Based in Eastbourne Docucoll1.xlsx
