What in Analogue Have You Bought Today?


Recommended Posts

Great album by Emma Swift.

 

"The Nashville singer-songwriter finds the sometimes-hidden heart in each of the Dylan songs she chooses, softening the sarcasm of “I Contain Multitudes” and somehow making “Simple Twist of Fate” even more of a weeper. [Swift]’s version of “One of Us Must Know (Sooner or Later)” is one of her best, with her slow-burn vocals bringing out all the yearning that Dylan was too cool to let show in 1966." Simon Vozick-Levinson, Rolling Stone

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.

I actually hope she puts a top notch alt-country album together... I’d definitely look at it, the girl can sing!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Normally I wouldn't click on a link about Miley Cyrus. I'd never heard her sing anything other than some of her pop tunes like Wreckingball. I'm glad I clicked on it 'cause it brought me to this video. What she lacks in range she more than makes up for in passion. Thanks for the vids.

To compliment my Rogue Audio Magnum3 tube amp and my  VPI Aries Scout 2 TT,  I received today my Cyrus CD8x and PSX-R Power supply.... looking forward to playing CDs at a new level to my NAD 5420.  Thanks to a Stereo net seller.

With respect and no offence intended, this really isn't an analogue purchase.

 

However I am really pleased that you are enjoying it so much.

Arrived today but no time to clean her up for a spin until tomorrow. Quad LP, technically a double double album? Some nostalgia from the early 2000s

I'm wanting a few AC/DC. But the place I was going to go for the new album has just had a Covid case.

A vertical record player, must be a dj type with two spindles. Need to drill out the spindle holes on my lps to fit and am not sure how the little tonearms work....but it sure looks cool.

@artaudio please share your thoughts on the Eagles album!

only played up to side 3 so-far.... i've not been a big fan of the studio albums and if your looking for a Hell freezes Over style album this is not for you. if your looking for a layback album that is just musical. this is going to be a classic. 

 

I love it.

Thanks for that. I'm a massive Eagles fan and have got all their albums. I was just a little hesitant to drop $200 ish on it. Hows the quality of the pressing?

I think the pressing is good.  with every glass of red wine each side keeps getting better. its a must own album.

This is one of my faves and my original copy is a bit manky.

Let us know how it sounds.

Just purchased on Discogs.....The B-52's self titled debut, German 1st pressing (where it was known as 'Play Loud') in 'mint' condition. Comes with this claim "This album was used as an archive example in a publishing company in Germany. The record was never played before, and the sleeve condition is next to immaculate."

Sounds like potential....

Hey @McCvinyl

 

I'm by no means a golden-eared listener, but i reckon the recording is 'decent'.  I find the soundstage is only moderately wide, depth is OK, sound balance tends to warm (which i like) but the details are still clear....particularly on Side 1...and nicely captures the feeling of the album as i remember it.  I like that it is only one disc (not 2) so it retains the flow of the original.  I guess the 2-disc 45rpm MFSL version at roughly 4 times the price? probably sounds amazeballs...but this single disc LP at $33 is good value in my book. 

 

p.s. Great avatar you have...and sage advice 🙂

 

Cheers

2B

A new to me Okki Nokki to use after the Kirmuss ultrasonic rinse cycle and a new tweeter for the dented one that came with the B&W Nautilus 805s I purchased last year. Big improvement in soundstage and low level detail since swapping the tweeter out.
