  1. Cheese, organic coffee, butter, yoghurt, nappies and a large bag of pistachios. How bout you?[emoji4] I think my aldi is silent apart from squeaking trollies?
  2. Same here but at 1.8g for the MP500, everything sounded very good until i put it through the hifi test record and I'm getting a slight distortion on the lower frequencies through one channel. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. Ooohhhh waits with anticipation.@mloutfie how do you find the bias adjustment on the classic arm? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. Possibly, but once dialled in it is a very capable cart i think I'll give it another try. If the suspension does fail on a cartridge would the sound of not suffer? It seems strange it wouldn't have a sound, then we could audibly work it out and say " mate she's gone, sounds like your suspensions shot" [emoji4] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. My stanton 881s rides very, very low. Azimuth, vta and vtf have to be spot on or some part of the cart will touch the record. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. Something from Dire Straits could do? Well produced and probably well known...... Sent from my GT-I9507 using Tapatalk
  7. I dont think there are many staff in those places actually on Gerry's books. I thought that he buys the building, kits it out, sells space to electrical companies who staff these areas and pay them a wage + commission . He then takes a % of takings that are spent on advertising etc. All in all quite a successful and profitable business model with very good but sometimes biased sales staff.
  8. By all accounts it may cost more to collect than what is available for collection? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  9. It was said with tongue in cheek and i understand it now works. I've been searching for a CD-80 for an age and this unit sounds just like you describe and reports are favourable.... Sweet! I fully understand if it stays on hold. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. I'll take it. [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. Surely a sound check with an empty hall can only get better when it is full of people. Someone has to be responsible for sound quality, after all you're there to hear a show. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Whilst the recommended VTF is 1.25g i found the best result at 0.8g. And as mentioned before the arm just a tad low at the back from level..... Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Nice cart and it isn't too hard to set up. It has a light vtf from memory and doesn't like warped records as it tracks very, very low. Mine took a long time to come on song maybe this is what you are hearing? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Aren't these two different types of cleaner? I thought the revirginiser was a liquid that was poured on your record and left to set before peeling off? The melody mate is a cleaning solution, no? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  15. ^^^^^^^^ I'd be saving for a little longer whilst waiting for a second hand unit from a reputable seller to turn up in the classifieds here. I'd also grab that mimic phono in the classifieds, it saw off my Jasmine lp2! Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
