  1. Ended up purchasing a remastered version of Master of Puppets... Still looking for the two Iron Maiden LPs
  2. Ordered a set of Bill's Canare 4S11 cables & jumpers on Sunday, they arrived today. Whilst I was pretty happy with the performance of my Tannoy Revolution XT6F's, Bill's cables have just tightened everything up, definite improvement over the 20+ yr old Phoenix Gold 12AWG I was using... & at the price they were a fantastic yet, inexpensive upgrade... thankyou Bill, lovely stuff, beautifully made too...
  3. Spent much of the day putting our collection of much neglected 7" singles through the US cleaner... They've all come up very well considering their age & decades of filth & mistreatment. Interesting listening... Kate Bush, Duran Duran, Gilbert O' Sullivan, Irene Cara, Genghis Kahn, Pseudo Echo, Abba, Incantations & many, many other both well known & obscure artists & songs The absolute gem of the collection... my wife in her year 1 choir some 50yrs ago... can't wait to play that to the MIL later this month...🤣
  4. Been cleaning vinyl tonight... this one just went through the US.... One of my wife's... ah the 80's..... 1980 The Music (Compilation) US cleaned the LP beautifully... didn't do much for the music though....LOL
  5. Misfits: Hate Breeder (Bootleg) Not a particularly good recording I have to say but, novel owning a bootleg vinyl recording no less.
  6. Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here (Remastered)
  7. @KRSDarwin things kinda escalated....LOL However... I'm in music heaven without busting the bank... About the only thing that stayed were some interconnects...😊
  8. @cafe latte introduced me to this talented young lady, thankyou Sir... Billie Eilish: When we all fall asleep, where do we go Some seriously bone rattling bass... this record just keeps growing on me with every listen...
  9. Finally home... Shure stylus gauge arrived so I could reset 2g on the tone arm... sorry for messing with it after all your hard work @cafe latte..... Now settling in with my new purchases The Rolling Stones: Hot Rocks 1964 - 1971 (Remastered)
  10. Nice little spend at Rocking Horse records today whilst enjoying a brief stopover in BrisVegas... Pink Floyd: Wish you were here (Remaster) Billie Eilish: When we fall asleep, where do we go? Metallica: Master of Puppets (Remaster) - replaces my outgassed damaged original... sadly, I lost hope of finding an excellent condition original pressing at a sensible price. The Rolling Stones: Hot Rocks 1964 - 1971 ( Remaster) Mike Oldfield: 5 Miles Out (Japanese issue Gatefold) looking forward to getting home Friday & giving them a spin...
  11. I've been busy adding to my LP collection, investing in a DIY ultrasonic cleaner & discovering a level of detail I never new existed in albums I've listened to many, many times before...
  12. I ended up purchasing an Acoustic Signature Primus from the classifieds here...:) Very happy...
  13. My darling wife & I have been together for 30 years... I have a number of expensive hobbies... Astronomy, Motorcycle (an Indian Chieftain), Bass guitar (I have a few), photography & in the past, flyfishing & boat. I've just spent close to $10k on new amp, turntable & speakers (some of it secondhand/factory refurb) although, in my defence it's the first 'new' hifi gear I've bought in 20 years... like others have suggested, I buy things to last rather than constantly swapping and changing.. we don't have the income to do otherwise really... & I'd struggle to justify it to mys
