Turntable night

Recommended Posts

After a long hard week at work, on the drive home I decided to have a night listening to some new records I bought a while back, but never got round to opening and playing them. I’ve also been enjoying my new SA14S1SE much more than I ever thought I would. 

It’s  nice to see the turntable in action, and have the enjoyment of opening four or five new albums. And I’m getting a little more exercise getting up every 15 mins to flip a record over. 

Comparing the Marantz TT15S1 against the SA14S1SE, wow.... there’s not much in it to be honest, but I think the SA14S1SE just about comes out on top, it really is a quality piece of kit. 

Anyway, I’m going to enjoy the rest of my evening listening to the Trivium back catalogue on my turntable. Have a good weekend wammers.

Good you want to play the black stuff 👍🏻 Interesting you say that the two formats are pretty close so that’s a good thing for the TT given there price differences 😜

ive always said that a decently set up TT can often out perform a digital source costing twice as much

I think the TT and Sacd Player sold for roughly the same amount when released. 

After having the turntable in action for over an hour, it is fighting back, maybe the amp/phono stage needed a bit of time to warm up! 

Ive had 4 beers too.. which is also having an effect lol. 

Oh, and all the records are on Coloured vinyl... no black stuff tonight.  🤪

I think it depends on the records. Coloured vinyl not meant to sound so good. 

It probably sounds similar after four pints!

As I understand it the natural colour of vinyl is clear/opaque, so even black records are "coloured". I do have quite a few LP's with different coloured vinyl & most of them are no more noisy that the black stuff.

colour vinyl is cool!  Some Nirvana albums like that go for big bucks
