    I know big band jazz isn't everyone's cup of tea, but when Lionel and his vibes lead the way, it's always magical.

    Now here's an album that I haven't heard in a long time. This copy turned up in a recent bulk buy. Unfortunately no Jaco, but the interplay between Joe Zawinal and Wayne Shorter becomes quite futuristic in places. Probably more due to Zawinal's keyboards, but Shorter's brass certainly intensifies the effect. Weather Report - Domino Theory.

    Does the light, stiff shelf have to be attached to a light, stiff wall? If not, I dont see what difference a heavy slab would make. The table is still a light, stiff structure. I don't know if I'm being offered Rega cool-aide or snake oil.

    I love that the warranty covers the thing not disintegrating for 60 days, but nothing on whether it does anything or not!

    Gil Evans self titled on the Baybridge lable. A great line up on this. Gil Evans, Joe Beck, Herb Bushler, James Cleveland, Billy Harper, Howard Johnson, Elvin Jones, Donald McDonald, Al Mouzon and Susan Evans. You can really feel the freedom of expression extended to the players on this album. This was obviously concocted to a large degree at the time of recording, and that "live" feel is apparent.

    Jimmy Carter 4 Live At Montreux '77 Niels Peddersn and Ray Bryant absolutely shred on parts of this performance.
  10. A .6 should be fine in an early microgroove, I do it all the time, I have quite a collection of 10" LPs. The advantage is the stylus sits below most of the surface damage and reduces much of the noise it produces, as @mloutfie has found. The downside is that if the record isn't clean, any debris in the bottom of the groove will be hit harder by the stylus, which is what I think @aussievintage is experiencing. I doubt the .1mm will cause the stylus to bottom out in a clean groove.

    Question for Yamaha GT owners - auto lift

    I would definitely be checking the tracking force as well. It sounds like the arm may be too back heavy.

  14. Plus freight. Plus GST. Plus duty. Plus no warranty. Just saying.
  15. I'm surprised nobody has suggested a used pair of Duntech Sovereigns. Plenty of space to hide.
