    VISIT LEN WALLIS AUDIO THIS RECORD STORE DAY

    Any other Saturday would have been good but alas I’ll be working (covering for a colleague) that day. Enjoy the day and thanks for thinking of me, Peter @PKay .
  4. If you want to straighten the plastic one don’t use the oven. A hair dryer is a much better way.
  5. You should be able to fit a Hadcock headshell which is metal rather than plastic. It was a known tweak to the jh back in the day. My first proper turntable (bought when I was 16 in1979) was a Connoisseur BD1 with a formula iv and I recall fitting a Hadcock headshell to the arm. From memory as the jh armtube was a smaller diameter I had to buy (from Hobbyco) some aluminium tubing so as I could cut a small, maybe 10-15mm long, sleeve to go over the end of the arm tube and allow the headshell to fit snugly.

    Jazz: Currently Spinning

    Been spinning lots of Coltrane this week after seeing a terrific documentary about him as part of the Antenna Festival. "Chasing 'Trane" .. a must see for anyone interested in jazz. Even some audiophile eye candy there for some of you keen observers.
  8. B(if)tek - Ultimate Alex Reece - Candles
  9. Beggars Banquet & Let It Bleed should definitely be in there.
