    I know I have talked at length about this album (FGTH - WTTPD) in the past but I just RV'd it, well side one so far so I'm giving it and sides two and four a spin. It was already very clean but had a few light crackles here and there so I thought I'd give it a peel. OMG, I can't rave enough about this albums SQ, in this case, a Canadian pressing. There's so much going on on this album at times but it never feels overwhelming on the senses....it is so well produced and recorded that everything is balanced and in sync. Trevor Horn is the 'master of ear-candy'! The RV peel has revealed even more detail that I didn't think possible.....this LP is truly a stunner!
  2. @Wimbo I plugged the TT into a different power circuit via ext. lead and same result, the buzz didn't change๐Ÿ˜•. I'll see if the Gecko cable improves anything.....it will hopefully arrive tomorrow.๐Ÿ‘

    I voted for Devo's "Turn Around: B-sides ^ More 1978-1984".....it won the vote and is now in production. It's a good site.๐Ÿ‘
  4. Dab....two or three times. Wiping carries risk.

    Did you vote for that? ๐Ÿ™‚ https://shop.runoutgroovevinyl.com/shop/yes-expanded-edition.html http://www.runoutgroovevinyl.com/
  6. New Gecko cable on the way for the phono to amp run. When I have taken the phono lead out of the amp in the past, there is no noise. I will check it with the TT plugged into another power point/circuit later this evening.....๐Ÿ‘ Thanks @Wimbo
  7. @Wimbo The same buzz happens with two other phono amps (Project Phono Box and QED Discsaver) that I have used with the same set up, so I don't believe it is the Vincent.....and yes, I can hear the noise from my listening position but mainly because the volume setting is loud. It's not a huge problem but one which I'd like to rectify.....but at the moment (as I'm very poor), only if the solution is simple/cheap.๐Ÿ‘

    It's a great stuff for a pristine clean! I'm onto my third bottle now. It's not for everyone (those who lack patience it seems) but it takes about three minutes to apply.....a minute to peel off. Who cares about the drying time? Not me....I just play other records in the meantime. I'm just about to peel an LP I let dry overnight while I slept.....I know it's going to sound wonderful.๐Ÿ‘Œ

    More Manfred Mann's Earth Band.....'The Good Earth' (Oz 1st pressing).
  10. I actually have a bit of both. As soon as the amp comes to life, a light buzz is evident and when the TT motor starts up, a light hum begins. On all other sources (digital), the amp is dead silent. I really only hear them because my amp is usually (...always๐Ÿ˜„) set to LOUD! At 'normal/average' listening levels, they'd be hard to pick up. Post edit: Another thing I just remembered is that the 'buzz' is only evident when on the MM setting on my phono amp...on MC it is absent. The only noise on the MC setting is a very light 'white noise'.

    I wondered that too. Phil told me about it first and he thought the whole stamper was ceramic but when I read that it's actually a coating, I became confused and wondered 'how hi def could that be?'! One definite positive of ceramic is that the last stamping will reputedly be as good as the first.๐Ÿ‘

    Hi Ian.....yes, GZ Media are a Czech company and apparently the world's largest vinyl presser, manufacturing >60% of the world's vinyl! Read about HD vinyl here: https://www.stereo.net.au/news/high-definition-vinyl-is-on-the-way

    Looks like GZ is raising their game....their pressings have been a bit 'hit or miss' in the past in my experience. They're also the company pressing the new high def vinyl featured in a recent stereonet article. Go GZ!๐Ÿ‘
