  1. MattyW, I’m running a FR-1 MK2, right this moment I’m listening to Dexter Gordon’s GO at +/- 80db and it sounds so wonderfully musical and not at all tiring, in fact although it’s getting late, I’m wondering what to put on next...
  2. Why not replace the 2M Red stylus with a 2M Blue - same body, different colour...
  3. That’s a very nice piece of work. As a once-was picture framer I’ve been toying with idea of having ‘picture frame’ plinth made up. There are some oversized mouldings available - 60mm in depth - made from some solid timber species and in a variety of finishes including some nice coloured timbers and black of course. They could be perfect for a drop-in toplate such as the one in your photograph. Watch this space...
  4. I’ve read a couple of reviews that have compared the 2M Black (and Orange) to a Moving Coil due to their silver coil windings. Way to go...
  5. Hi Andy, tis indeed a switch. I’ve recently added an NAD C-162 preamp that has MC or MM input and an Advance Acoustic MMA-402 amp. Now, for me that is a big Step Up 😐
  6. All the Ortofon 2Ms are most suitable for low mass tonearms. I have a 2M Silver on a low mass arm they do like each other... (must confess to having crossed over to the dark side as in rich dark chocolate and I’m running a Fidelity Research FR-1 mc cart courtesy of my brother and I don’t know that I’ll ever come back...)
  7. Ortofon 2M Bronze... Havng said that, what do you think is lacking with the Nagaoka - it has a good rap from just about every reviewer.. Also the Nag needs a bit of running in. Do you need to think about speaker placement etc. A lot cheaper..
  8. The idea of playing a fave record once a day is anathema to me! My thinking is that of audiofeline’s. After all, the tiny tiny tip of the stylus is passing through the micro grooves at such a pace as to not generate enough heat to degrade the vinyl. Not sure about the tonnage theory either when we’re talking 1.5 to 2.0 grams of pressure, even though it’s at a very small point. I’d love to hear from a physics expert...
  9. I came across this post on another forum and was left wondering if it’s true 🤭 “The normal properly adjusted tracking force of 2 grams (as an average) translates into tons per square inch of contact area in the groove wall of a record. The stylus passing through the groove essentially MELTS and deforms the vinyl as it passes. It can take hours for the "memory" of the original shape of the groove to return, and if the same portion of the groove is replayed in that time, the deformation extends more deeply and is less likely to ever return to its original shape. So the first thing to avoid is replaying the same song more than once a day.”
  10. It’s me being arty. It’s blue light from the telly screen...
  11. Great post! Recently I polished the rim of my aluminium platter because of the same smudging issue. Using Solvol Autosol polish I spent quite a while with hand work then finished it with a lambs wool pad on a rotary angle grinder. Looks great and I swear it’s improved the performance (lol)...

  13. NO, not no run in grooves at all, just very fine and fewer than most of my older vinyl to the point where there’s no take up....
  14. As I stated in my original post, it’s ONLY happening on a few new pressings, NOT the bulk of my collection which stretches back some fifty years. As I also stated I’ve checked and rechecked my tonearm set up...
