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    

The SME 15 arrived today, now for the painful wait until next week when Andy McLean can set it up and fit the SME V arm.

Still looking for a solid price on these... stock must be low/slow

I pre-order from Amazon 2 days before release. People now know they're a top notch pressing on cheap so pretty much sold out first day. And then scalpers price after it sold out sadly that's the norm these days

Rewinding 5 weeks or so...the purchase for this Maceo LP was cancelled...due to sky high freight cost 😔

 

But now placed on a different order....and added a JB Horns album as well 🙂

 

So here i am nonchalantly checking the tracking app every now again....OK, OK, not more than once or twice a day 😆

 

Can't wait!

FR-64 arrived today. Hoping to install tonight! 

 

I’ll need to steal the headshell from the FR-24, until i can buy a heavier headshell, DL103, and SUT 😅

 

Edit: forgot to add, cable being supplied by @Bill125812 - one of his new Western Electric designs :cool:
 

Impressed to receive photocopy of all documentation though.

Never been outclassed so fast! 

Oops Sorry!

 

You have bought yourself a very nice arm in the FR64S.

 

I have always been a fan of the FR arms and if one were to look at my showcase thread, I mentioned more than a decade ago here on SNA that it was great value for money at the then second hand price of around $1500 and that if you could only have one tonearm then the 64S was my choice.
 

I see that they have more than  doubled in price since then.

 

Enjoy the 64!

Sorry bout the late reply, dont know how I missed it.

Got it from Discrepency records but they had no stock but they ordered It.

Sounds fantastic and am pretty chuffed with it. I have read on the net about some surface noise problems but mine is dead quiet.

Nice work! You did get lucky - I went through about three copies of the 45RPM and all of them had heavy bass distortion in the opening track. Rest of the album was fine. I tend to stick with the 33 which has none of the same issues.

I guess it had to happen at some time as the album was actually a sweetener from my purchase of the Sade box set in which one of the album was scuffed up to the shitehouse and being no more box sets left I worked out a deal on this album. as it has always been a favourite of mine.

17 years after selling my Mission 775SM/Rega/Dynavector rig and practically giving away all my vinyl, I’m back. 
 

ubiquitous. For good reason.

Cool, as I said before I have the Amazon one and had to go to a couple of returns until got a decent one. It’s the 33 RPM version but it does sound nice, guess yours is this

Im pretty sure thats the one.

The original EU pressing was pressed by MPO and comes with only Ministry of Sound logo, does not have Germany, Made in the EU prints nor Sony Music logo.

I too went through 3 copies, one was extremely noisy and all seem to have some distortion. I bought all those copies in 2013 when it was first released.

 

Your copy seems to be the repress by GZ Media. I bought a copy in 2015/2016. https://www.discogs.com/London-Grammar-If-You-Wait/release/12184206

 

Check the picture it shows 2 logos. Probably check the matrix to be sure. 
 

The original has lower and deeper bass. More stunning dynamics. The repress sounded excellent too, quieter and cleaner. But it didn’t impress me as much as the original. I eventually sold the GZ and keep the MPO despite the noise & distortions.

Wow Dave it sounds like you have been on a hardcore LG journey.

You give me no choice but to track down the MPO and decide for myself😊

Oh yes I also had the US 33 rpm. As good as it sounds it doesn’t rate! 😁

 

There’s something very special about the MPO 45 rpm pressing. The sound is deep, spacious, immersive, slightly more organic and definitely warmer and more analogue sounding. Once you heard it you just won’t want to hear the other versions... I do  hope you find a clean and quiet copy. Best of luck! 😁

Have you heard Liverpool before? I'd be interested to know what you think of it JJ. To me it was a huge letdown after the brilliant first album WTTPD.

 

I never play it.:(
