For years I’ve been reading about people scoring bargain basement deals through the used goods marketplaces in various forums. I read most of the post purchase comments to these posts, and there are q

I just picked up a new Luxman PD171A with a Ortofon PWti cartridge    

Nothing more than an indulgence purely for the aesthetics. Soulines U-Base to compliment the Kubrick DCX.

An original UK 1st pressing of Sticky Fingers

 

Sounds superb.

This was an interesting one.

 

I found it at my local record store, Holy Vinyl.

It wasn't cheap, and didn't look in perfect condition , with a few visible scratches  and some scuffing.

 

Khai, the owner , assured me that it played very well, and was happy for me to take it home to have a listen on my TT before I purchased it. That's bricks and mortar service! 

 

 I'm glad I did because the sound was amazing and the scratches had no effect on the sound.

This is the very welcome truth around vintage US and European wax - it may look average, but often plays out of it’s skin! ✔️

Unfortunately the only way to find out is to play it of course.

These 2 arrived earlier this week via discogs.

 

Original US Mono 1st pressings from 1958 and 1962

 

In near mint condition - apparently from the record collection of a music industry person from that time.

 

Great music and the records  play beautifully.

Wow! He has some great records for sale. Shame the ones I want all seem to be over $300.

 

I see he appears to have 5 full sets of 112 Music Matters jazz 45 rpm lps, each US$8500. Need to win lotto first...

Ain't that the truth, I have an early Decca press of Beggers Banquet that has been more "over loved" than abused yet still plays seamlessly and holds its own against new 1/2 speed Abbey Rd press in SQ.

Same label, same era, same condition, same SQ - John Mayall a hard road. I understand how they can sound so good but why are they so robust? breathe on a new album or just getting it out of a glossy paper sleeve (why do they do that) for the first time and tick tick pop fark!

I really rate the Denon 103R, especially when rebodied.

 

But yes, you really need to clean it! ;) and your records...

Just now purchased these off SNA'er @Andre28

Perfect for phono to amp and will be replacing a pair of lesser quality Monster i/connects.👍

That's an Alpine......nice.👍 They owned Luxman for awhile.....it was Luxmans 'dark period'.😄 I have a Luxman K5 cassette deck (1978....pre Alpine connection) in storage....might drag it out one day. Not sure where my cassettes are though.....😧

I wasn't competing😉 (yours is nice, as I said in my initial post....maybe just a bit cluttered with unnecessary functions😄) .....anyway, Alpage and Alpine.....same company. Your deck is also known as the Alpine AL300.

https://www.nodevice.com/service-manuals/cassette-decks/alpine/alpage-al300

So yes, it's an Alpine. 👍......and there's nothing wrong with that.

PS: The K5 would cream it......😂
