  1. @Peter heard It would be a good idea to edit your post and remove your personal phone number.
  2. Unlike a record, tape is hard to visually grade. Some obvious signs like breakage, crinkling, mould, powder or sticky residue will give you an idea. However breakage can be spliced, crickling may be diminished under pinch roller pressure and mould can be cleaned. The sticky shed is the biggest problem and even this can be remedied temporarily. The only real way to see the quality of recording on the tape and true condition is to play it, or to record and play. If the tape has any residue that can be left on the tape path and heads do not risk playing it.
  3. Mono! I mentioned in another that that having a dedicated mono cartridge takes these recordings to another level. Miyajima Spirit - highly recommend.
  4. I sold a record to a buyer in Germany a fortnight ago. Arrived in 13 days 👍
  5. Coronet records are great. Some of the purple octagonal with gold lettering are exceptional.
  6. I've been playing mono records for years. True mono from the 50's and 60's. I assumed these records were noisy due to age even after an Audio Desk clean. Never assume. Once I got a got a Miyajima Spirit Mono cartridge every changed.
  7. Item: Lenco metal idler wheel Price Range: $60 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: One of my idler assemblies has some missing washers. I tried to fashion some myself to no avail. Italy will not ship small parcels with a replacement kit that I have ordered. So, I'm in need of Lenco appropriate washers or... an idler assembly with washers or... a full idler arm and wheel assembly
