    This for me is the 1 true reason why i keep spinning those records..  It forces you to appreciate each and every track on each side.  


    i appreciate the digital convenience of skipping tracks or progressing through whatever combo takes your fancy regarding artists, genres, release, etc etc

    however in most cases the artists are working towards releasing an album and this collection of songs are bound by the world as the artist experiences it at a given time and place (including who is/isn't there with them). we're asking the to express something and share their a window into their universe. this is embedded in each song in some way or another and its when elements of this resonates with your space-time journey that connection sparks. why wouldn't you want to tap into that in its full? otherwise its like only watching 3 scenes per movie or pulling together pages from several books and calling it a novel. you're literally only getting a fraction of the story and missing the full experience of what your artist has for you.

  2. my first spin

    was on the fence with getting this record, figured WAF would justify it. 

    really really impressed. its making the system sound sublime, so much more going on and jumping out vs my Spotify and radio listens. creamy layer upon layer but spiked with attitude, swagger and angst. yes still pop but not as we know it

  3. first spin after it arrived today - very nice. music with soul and groove and big vocals, tight musicianship and production, and aside from an ever so faint crackle in the dead wax an otherwise crisp clean pressing. smiles

  5. currently - 

    taking a while to grow on me, initially I found too much fill between the few stand out tracks. this spin is taking me in more. also its really 3 sides spread over 4 

    pressing is fine

  6. my local gym has its floors covered in what looks like 40x40cm blocks of 7-10cm thick rubber pads, similar to the black fused-particle Whites blocks. it handles people dropping 30-40kg weights on it etc.

    I'm not sure how you would source them however. I think Bunnings has something similar but only like 1 inch thick


    also at Bunnings in the gear for outdoor playgrounds they have rubber mats, about 12mm thick and roughly 1x1m. they come in various colours

    Experiment and see what you like best.


    this week I've re-set amp volume to about 10.30. it seems to have made synching the subwoofer easier / less fickle so that's a worthwhile plus if any.  I'll up it a bit more but I'll need to knock back a few of the inputs coming into the pre-amp now as the level differences are more emphasised.
