    Sounds like a ringing endorsement. I'd be on it if I lived closer. GLWTS.

  5. Is it the Hi-5 Christmas CD? Coincidentally I had that playing yesterday (mostly to stir my daughter)
  6. Bal, I hope they're still available for you. That would be a great outcome after this time,

    Wikipedia entry: the worst songs ever

    Enough Nickelback hate. (I got quite) Enough Nickelback hate. (hardly ever) Enough Nickelback hate. Seems that a lot of my Singles collection appears in the "List". No mention of douchebag Meatloaf and his ''Paradise by the Dashboard light"? Jim Steinman should be stopped. (He's on the left in the photo, wearing an attractive sleeping mask).

    Thanks Southerly. Good advice for when I'm more comfortable with this deck. Yesterday afternoon and this morning I was faffing about with the installation of the new stylus (into the original Shure VST-III Ultra Group Special Edition cart), and adjusting to suit. Stylus arrived yesterday from LP gear. Assuming that the new stylus needs a little break-in time, based on current performance. I even bought my first cartridge setup template for this job. New toy installed, aligned, counterweight set and running now.

    Something from 1962. Plays better than some of those thin, flimsy ELO albums I have. Go Satchmo!

    Were you listening to it or just sitting it out for shock value?

    Optonica RP-3500 turntable - eBay purchase

    My TT arrived on Monday and I have since ordered an LP Gear VividLine stylus for it, as well as made the device operational with the old AT cart from the Sherwood. On first play, the sound was dry and harsh as well as being very lacking (I assume dynamics?) Then I realised that I had not aligned the cart sufficiently on the headshell. Nor had I adjusted the wight on the arm since re-installing the weight (it was adjusted very much inward). I went for 1.25 g as my initial setting (taking up to 10 g off the previous adjustment). After that the TT was providing music again, and quite good music. The stereo separation was much better, and the music was again whole. Not bad for an older and likely quite cheap AT Cart. The 3D imaging is still not there yet, but that is more likely the speaker positioning which may be the level of user experience. I listened to The Caballeros (Blues Rock), and some Black Flag (very raw punk not requiring such well-defining equipment), I could definitely hear the rawness of the punk with the new TT, as well as picking up some extra definition in the Caballeros recording. More eloquent writers than I could provide more efficient descriptors of what I observed. Looking forward to the arrival and installation of the new stylus (ordered yesterday, posted today) in my Shure VST-III cartridge. Time for some more music.
