Now I want the real thing! Pink Floyd "Animals" 2016 remaster, Dutch pressing.  

Cheers Hector.  I have it and a great album it is.           Thanks to @evil c   Donald Fagen - The Nightfly    Mofi one step release.   High standard

Meat Loaf Bat Out Of Hell Australia  1977   Had a "loop skip" in it so hit it with the Revirginzer Product after I could see some crud stuck in a groove using a magnifying gla

Spun earlier.......new arrival, came today (two weeks from Russia! I'm impressed).

 

AC/DC "Ballbreaker" 2009 George Marino remaster, German pressing. More surface noise than the very quiet 'Power Up' but still very good SQ.

 

This is a cracker of an album IMO. Talk about the masters of the simple.....the main riff on the title track is virtually two notes.....but it is one of the ballsiest rock riffs I've ever heard. Salute!B)

The Go-Betweens ‎– 16 Lovers Lane - the perfect dreamy indie pop album?

original UK Beggars 1988 release -maybe 60gms vinyl - can almost been used as a Rolf wobble board 😉  been played literally several hundred times or more - still sounds perfect and this pressing is the best you will hear this album - that is the longevity of vinyl if looked after.

Styx - Kilroy Was Here

 

Tried to get a picture of the level meters on the tape deck as well, this thing is *loud*.

 

also:  DOMO ORIGATO MR ROBOTO!!!!!!!!!!!

 

edit:  ah ha ha I completely forgot the ludicrous story line that accompanies this record.  An excerpt:

 

Quote

THE PRESENT is a future where japanese manufactured robots, designed to work cheaply and endlessly, are the caretakers of society.  "MR ROBOTOS" are everywhere, serving as manual labor in jobs that were once held by humans...crowds hurl rock'n'roll records and electric guitars into huge bonfires..."

 

Good luck hurling a spotify stream into a bonfire!  Now, if you were slightly unhinged you might argue that Styx producing this record have in fact prevented a dystopian future without Rock'n'Roll and we should thank them.  So thanks Styx!

Thanks for showing the amp, I have tried to workout what was the brand. Is the tape deck a Marantz as well?

Yep - Marantz SD4000.  Actually bought the cassette deck first (2nd hand dealer in Newcastle) then loved the look of it so much chased up an affordable but matching amp.

 

Got another similar vintage amp (Kenwood KR-4010) and while the Kenwood has a better FM tuner, the Marantz SR4000 has just a touch more punch and a really nice phono input to let that Technics 'table sing.  Slightly warmer tone too - although it has bass/mid/treble tone controls so a touch more flexible.  Great little period rig for vinyl.

Vintage gear is awesome, I have a matching tuner for my Yamaha amp with power vu meters :)

The Smashing Pumpkins ‎– Adore - 2014 reissue.  Easily the best reissue of all the Pumpkins albums Corgan did between 2011 and 2014. I understand what Corgan was trying to do with the MONO vinyl release back in 1998 with his Spector-ish wall of grunge sound but the wall is a bit too muddy -  this version just works better imo especially with the slower songs, but luv both.

Saw this posted previously on SNA and a NM copy came my way -

I don't really like the movies, but the theme songs are iconic.

Just picked this one up today. Absolutely fantastic sound quality on this great folky album. I heard it on cd and just had to track it down on vinyl. Mastered to perfection.

Gillian Welch - The Harrow & The Harvest.

Have had this on vinyl for 7 or 8 years now and one of my favourite albums. It was in high rotation in our room at the HiFi Show last year too.👍

 

Cheers,

I had a fellow SNA'er come down to audition my ascension speakers and he brought the cd with him. Gotta say categorically that the vinyl blows the cd away. Definitely has quickly become one of my faves.

Yep, they’re all good tracks, but a few real standouts for me are Tennessee, The Way It Goes and Down Along The Dixie Line.

Something completely different before dinner. Another delivery today. Fantastic album. Totally raw. Just Nick and a grand piano. Sounds brilliant.

Joe Bonamassa - a new day now, 20th Anniversary Edition, one of the better remixes I have, some vocals have been redone which is definitely an improvement.

Definitely worth it. Would have liked to see Red Right Hand and the Weeping song on there but a great collection none the less.

Supertramp - Breakfast in America

 

Sadly it has plenty of surface noise (not unusual for a picture disk I guess) but you kinda tune it out while the music is going, between tracks and on the quieter passages it's annoying as hell though.

      2014 vinyl release by Jack White 
       
      This "Ultra LP" release features several special features:

      · Tracks A6 and B7 are locked grooves featuring elements from their respective previous tracks. "High Ball Stepper" doesn't end with a faded-out distortion as in the digital versions, it is locked instead.
      · Tracks A7 and B8 are hidden tracks pressed on their sides' labels, and play at 78 RPM and 45 RPM respectively, thus making the LP a three speed record.
      · Side A's groove is inverted and plays from the inside out.
      · "Just One Drink" consists of two different intros, each in its own groove, with both connecting at the body of the song. BA1 is acoustic, BB1 is electric.
      · Side B has a matte finish, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record.
      · Vinyl is pressed in flat-edged format.
      · Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record.
      · Tracks B3 and B4 are swapped in comparison to the digital editions, and B2 features a slightly longer intro.
      · The vinyl was mastered entirely from analog sources with no additional compression used.

      So after finding myself in a music store with that old familiar joy of looking through vinyl albums I wanted to add a turntable to my setup. The Project X1  is what I was thinking I would dip my toe in with. 
       
      I have boxes of vinyl of classical from the old family home, but they are in average to poor condition. (but recordings I cannot get any more) So my question is:
       
      If I am playing both new and old vinyl records,  am I going to destroy the needle? What do others here do about their original and mint collection without killing a $300 needle?
       
      Thanks!
