  1. The box sets look similar to a Concert Hall Record Club release...
  2. You'll be fine 🙂 Its good to be aware of these things though and try to keep your physical music in great shape. If done well records and tapes will last a lifetime. Who really knows how long they will last. I've got records from the late 40's and tapes from the late 50's that are still going strong. Don't leave records in the car though 😂 The first record I bought when I was a whipper-snapper was left in Dad's car for a few of hours in summer. Ruined😢
  3. I don't think that the Ortofon 2M series has the correct VTA when mounted on a Rega arm. For optimum sound quality it is suggested that spacers are required to lift the arm up approximately 3mm. I haven't had experience with this myself but remember hearing that the Ortofon /Rega combination requires a tweek. There is a thread on Vinyl Engine detailing that 3.2mm spacers are recommended by Ortofon. (Not sure on the policy of inbedding other forum links here so didn't add it)
  4. Just add a cartridge that is suitable for your internal phono stage. You have to spend a lot more money to best a well set up Lenco.
  5. Wonderful, What a great snippet of the not so distant past. Things have changed but music...
  6. Cool. That would be the cassette that was dubbed from the original master tape for the artist or band members to take home. The original master tape would be held by the record company and would be open reel format. Most probably a 2-track 1/4 inch tape recorded at 15 inches per second.
  7. You've got a typo in the tag and title. Just to Verify, it's Verify not Verity.

  11. Modern recordings will be Stereo unless otherwise stated. Some new releases are released in Mono and Binaural etc. Early LP's from the 50's and 60's may be the opposite. If nothing is stated on the label or jacket it is probably Mono and they will certainly state if it is Stereo as a new technology. There are many technologies used over time such as the wonderful sounding 35mm film recording method from Mercury Records. As Aussie Vintage has mentioned--any special technology used will be hyped on the packaging and media.
