  1. I actually do it the other way around. Pull off all the crap with the glue and then a wash afterwards to rinse. But whatever way, it definitely works. 👍
  2. Or I could just go and buy a product specifically designed for cleaning cartridges instead of walls and deadening drum kits.. 😜
  3. Let me present - The evidence. I've noticed this with my admitted dodgy eyes so decided to take a photo. I have been using the Magic Eraser in between regular brushing with the Ortofon Microfibre and the brush supplied with the cartridge. I clean my records so I can only conclude this is from the Magic Eraser as it appears to be white. This picture was after I had physically pulled some off with my fingers. 😳 Ive ordered some Moongel to see if that will remove the offending particle.
  4. I recently added a new phono stage and swapped the QEDs over to phono duties. Um, wow.... The level of detail was amazing. So much so that I decided to buy another set of QEDs. Then I was recommended "Bills" cables and given the price compared to the QEDs I thought why not try them. I have had them in for a couple of weeks and I cant tell the difference between them and the QEDs. Amazing and saved me $150. 👍

    I have one I bought when it was released but haven't heard it on my latest system. It was a cool album. Is it the recording?
  7. One delivered, the other bought in the city today.
  8. Its the desert. Everything is already dead there...

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    The Steeley Dan, Motorhead. Fleetwood Mac and Meatloaf ones were particularity cool as I recall. Ive forgotten some others probably. The Meatloaf one made me go out and buy the album (which I was probably one of the only people my age in Australia who never did when it was released). Once I knew Rundgren produced and played guitar on it. Its a great story that one.

    I wasn't sure about the "gel" but if you are using that I will give it a go. 👌 Here's this evenings efforts..

    This. Yes trial and error but neither to much or too less is a disaster. Thin is a bit worse but it wont take long to work it out. Yep. Once my family had it explained they have ignored me and just accepted dad is a nut. Truly a revelation for me.
  13. When I was younger I didn't really get Hendrix. Then I tried to play guitar.. You have to put Hendrix in context of when he played for a start. Then try to actually listen as a guitarist, well I did, and it starts too make sense. Consider he is also singing and some of the early recordings were not multi tracked. He tends to play a lot of stuff that he makes sound easy, but isn't. Its quite impressive.

    For sure. It has given me an appetite for some kind of doco that tells the story of every album. I loved the Classic Albums series and I reckon they could do a whole series on Queen albums.
