  1. Hello Philip I'd like to come along if there's still room for one more. Cheers Suresh
  2. This arrived today - haven't had a chance to listen yet, but the Joshua Tree is one of my favourite albums so I'm looking forward to listening to this over the weekend
  3.’s-“pass-salt-and-pepper”-remix-cd For what its worth, Fremer seemed to prefer the new mix (on CD!) when comparing it to an original UK pressing.
  4. Thanks Owen
  5. Thanks Harry , from Audio Fidelity, set my Brinkmann arm/Archon cartridge with the Uni Din alignment, based on his experience and expertise with the gear. Not sure if I should fiddle with it too much as I'm pretty happy wth how it sounds Cheers
  6. Have any of you vinyl gurus ( @metal beat !) compared the Uni Din alignment to the more traditional ones?
  7. The original vinyl release was Dutch, i think, and very gard to get hold of and expensive. Simply vinyl did one in the late 90s. A bootleg version was released a few years ago. I'm really surprised that one of the comapnies like Mofi or Analogue productions hasnt done a version, given how popular the DVD/CD it is amongst audiophiles as a demo disc.
  8. Thanks At some point I might dip my toe into the vintage TT world - just not sure at what level that would have to be at to find something I'd enjoy listening to as much as my Brinkmann. I never feel the urge to listen with my Clearaudio Concept now, but a DD table might be fun - having said that, I listened to the Bardo DD in my system, and prefer what I'm getting now from the Spyder. Cheers
  9. I dont want to start a vintage vs new war, but as someone who has experienced the best of both - if you could keep just 1 of your TT, what would it be? i'm genuinely interested as I have a couple of nice new tts but no old ones.
  10. Shouldnt that be a kfatwa...
  11. Hi Newman I always find these discussions interesting ( until they get too heated, and the thread gets closed....). I do wonder if the comment you've made about live music also applies to some of us listening to music on our systems. It'a not just exact replication of sound waves, but rather a totality of a listening experience on your system at home ( How you approach this hobby - the equipment - vintage, bargain, DIY, cost-no-object, the tweaks - cables, power cords, magic stones, etc, the medium ( some people are passionate about streaming,downloads, CDs ,vinyl, etc), and the context of listening ( how does the room make you feel, does it look cool, what sort of mood you're in, do you have a nice glass of wine/beer/coffee in your hand) For many people, this hobby is as much about how you get there ( the journey -and yes, I hate that overused term), rather than just the " exact reproduction of the master tape/musical performance by whatever means necessary. I suspect this is why some people get worked up at the notion of blind testing - it's not how they enjoy this hobby ( in the same way that people enjoy other sensory experiences - food, wine, etc - in context of the event/surroundings/mood/etc) Sorry if this has going off-topic. Cheers Suresh
  12. Both of these sets have arrived in the last 2 weeks. Vol 1 from Amazon Italy, Vol 2 from CC music. I'm very impressed - great music, beautiful pressings, sound amazing. I don't have originals to compare them to, but I'm very happy with what I'm hearing.
  13. Excellent We need to look after a vinyl brother! Can't have you starting married life listening to CDs !! Cheers
  14. Hi Jamie I've got a Clearaudio Basic + phono stage that I'm not using at the moment. I was planning on selling it with my Concept TT but haven't gotten around to it yet. You'd be very welcome to borrow it, and it might be a nice match for your Clearaudio cart. Cheers Suresh
