I don't think we need a specific format spinning thread.

 

If you check the currently spinning thread most posters list what format they are playing at the time.

And the vast majority of posters in the other currently spinning threads are spinning records.

Paul, no offence was intended. But the spinning thread has been running fine for a number of years.

I'm sure you've seen it at some point?

I have participated in it and no offence taken 

However you will have also see other music genre spinning threads 

 

One of the reasons and the main inspiration I started this thread is the presentation format of the participants 

 

The idea came to me from some posters on Instagram where they photograph the album they are playing and the turntable it's played on 

It also invites discussion on SQ, Tone Arms, Cartridges ect 

 

This is the main difference of this thread to others

But many do that on the spinning thread already. It's not new. I believe it was @ferchersan that kicked off the trend of showing album and table pics.

 

Anyway...knock yourself out. :)

Although I've largely abandoned my Terminator arm, have you tried any of Vic's tweaks? Such as arm cable dressing, change in arm pivot point material, using rubber bands to suspend arm.

 

One tweak I see you don't have which I used was to put a protective cap on the end of the bottom of the arm. Too easy to scrape the record on it otherwise.

My Terminator arm and set up is superb and has no issues 

The setup of this arm was factored in when building the plinth I don't have any issues at all  

Did not know any issues about the pivot points that you mentioned but as an engineer I thought it best to enhance the connection point 

While putting it all together I applied a special coating that is used in string instrument building 

 

Always careful with record placement so no issues 

With wires I suppose I could have a look at what others are doing as I haven't visited the site for a long time

I gather the tweaks are all about trial and error, no criticism of the current set ups but only trying to improve.

 

I'm sure Vic would be receptive to any suggestions, ie your special coating, esp if it could be shared with other owners.

I am all for tweaks and improvements and don't mind taking things on board and sharing mine when people ask

 

Take note of the product number on this coating ( see photo )

      Item Condition: Most records UNPLAYED MINT. Others NM played once or twice on audiophile system. Boxes in exceptional condition for age VG+. Sleeves and booklets in NM condition. Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Bronte (Sydney Eastern Suburbs) State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on pickup Reason for selling: Financial stress Further information: 

      This Georg Solti / Vienna Philharmonic Wagner Ring performance/recording is still regarded by many as the best on record, and no subsequent reissue even gets close to equalling these spectacularly good limited edition pressings by Decca UK.
       
      Released in 1970 as a limited special edition. 22 records in 5 boxes enclosed in a uniquely designed outer slipcase.
       
      At the time it was the highest priced record set on the market and sold out soon after release! I recall "Mr Rowe Street" (Sydney's most iconic classical record store owner) pointing to the "last unsold copy in Australia" and the following week it was gone.

      The boxes are now 50 years old and inevitably the outer cover and box spines have sustained minor degradation over that time, but remain in beautiful condition overall. I've conservatively classed them as VG+.

      Everything else ranges from NM to MINT condition!!! Most of the vinyl has NEVER been played.

      Each box has full libretto in German and English along with detailed synopsis of each opera as well as technical recording details.
       
      The full set weighs just under 12 kg before packing it up protectively for shipping, so allow at least 13 kg shipping weight. Note that I have access to much better insured interstate shipping rates than Australia Post. For instance estimate for fast door-to-door delivery to inner Melbourne OR even inner Perth suburbs from Sydney, including insurance, would be under $30! 

      There is a similar-condition set (maybe not quite as good) on eBay for UK£330 (about AU$600) plus shipping (+$200 to Australia) plus GST.
       
      PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE
       
      Additional information from Discogs
      Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen 22 LP Decca Box Set Incredible 1970 UK TWENTY TWO stereo LP boxed set of the complete edition of Richard Wagner's four part opera, 'Der Ring des Nibelungen', also known as 'The Ring Cycle' featuring the four operas 'Das Rheingold','Die Walkure', 'Siegfried' and 'Gotterdammerung'.

      There is also a unique three record introduction to 'The Ring' set narrated by Deryck Cooke featuring excerpts from the four operas.

      Each opera is in its own separate wooden ended partition with full size libretto booklets containing synopsis & full transcription for the operas.
      The performance is THE classic version by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Georg Solti,
       a powerful orchestral drama, phenomenal performance and superb sound.

      The whole ensemble is enclosed in a very weighty carved wooden box with gilded front panel.

      Hey all, 
       
      I'm heading down to the Bowral/Mittagong/Moss Vale area for the long weekend and was wondering if anyone knew of any good places to look for vinyl?

      STUFF YOU NEED TO KNOW:
              Once all sold (or near to), a donation to SNA of 5% of items total will follow.
              Any titles here get brand new inner and/or outer quality Blake sleeves as needed before shipping.

      I try to ship all records themselves outside the cover, so any postal damage is minimised.
             I use mostly s/hand pre-made cardboard mailers for all orders, and these virtually guarantee safe arrival of your record (they are also MUCH faster to pack).
             Combined postage to anywhere in Australia at cost (or close enough) and is EXTRA (ie. not included in prices). 
            ABSOLUTELY NO LOCAL PICKUPS - don't ask - it's not going to happen.

      The Rat Pack – Live At The Sands – 2LP Limited reissue in gatefold - BRAND NEW & SEALED.
      2014 rmastered set, originally recorded live at The Sands Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada on September 7, 1963. Includes liner notes by Bill Zehme. Digitally remastered by Lee Herschberg. Pressed in the Netherlands and sounds fantastic.
      For those whose favourite part of the legendary Sinatra/Count Basie LIVE AT THE SANDS album was Frank's lengthy comedic monologue, THE RAT PACK: LIVE AT THE SANDS will arrive like manna from hipster's heaven. The disc features an entire performance by the storied "rat pack" of the Chairman and his musical pals Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr., but most of the show is given over to shtick and banter. Fittingly, Sinatra gets the most straight-ahead musical time with a brace of sterling ballads whose appearance should delight hardcore fans. Fortunately, the humorous barbs passed around the stage for the bulk of the performance are extremely sharp and funny (if politically incorrect in the extreme). Taken as a comedy album with some stirring musical moments, this disc is a gem for those who revere the Rat Pack, as they are captured at the peak of their powers and popularity, exuding hipness from every pore. LIVE AT THE SANDS is a bona fide cultural artefact documenting one generation's apex of cool.    $35

       

      Alan Parsons Project – I Robot – 2LP LEGACY 2013 release 35th Anniversary Edition - BRAND NEW & SEALED.
      MOV pressing in a gatefold sleeve. Including an 8 page booklet with rare photos & liner notes by Alan Parsons, and 14 bonus tracks on the second disc.
      Lovely double album package.    $45







      Led Zeppelin - How The West Was Won (SUPER DELUXE EDITION) – 4LP, 3CD, DVD and Book – 2018 EU pressed Box Set. BRAND NEW & SEALED.
      'How The West Was Won' highlights the best performances from Led Zeppelin’s legendary concerts at the Los Angeles Forum and Long Beach Arena on June 25 and 27, 1972. Standouts include a 25-plus minute version of 'Dazed And Confused' and a 21-minute medley based around 'Whole Lotta Love'. The performances also capture the band introducing songs from its then-unreleased album 'Houses Of The Holy', which would be released nine months later. The Super Deluxe Boxed Set contains: Remastered audio on three CDs and four 180-gram vinyl LPs. DVD of the album in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and PCM Stereo, plus photo gallery. High-def download card of all stereo audio content at 96kHz/24 bit. A 52 page book filled with rare and previously unpublished photos of the band at each of the concert locations, plus memorabilia and ephemera. High-quality print of the original album cover, the first 30,000 of which will be individually numbered.
      Goes for anywhere from $230-$245 online anywhere you care to check.   
      How's half that?      $125
