Clear Vinyl

 

This clear vinyl has a little surface noise & a couple of small pops.

 

After this one and the two faulty 2019 "Fleetwood Mac Rumours"  that I had to return that were also in Clear Vinyl - I have concluded Clear vinyl Sucks.

Or maybe as @metal beat would say: “coloured vinyl sux - black is where it's at.”

 

I was enjoying some Pulp Fiction this afternoon though it suffered from a disappointing warp, from JB Hi-Fi.

Oh that is so sad, maybe take it back to JB and switch it over if you can because that is disappointing.

 

I also agree the Black Vinyl is the best and I try and get that out of preference - I did not know the Animals one was clear until I opened as it came from eBay from the US  and the information was not there. But it is playable and maybe will settle down with a couple more plays. The two Fleetwood Macs on the other hand were bad pressings on side 1 and when I checked on Discogs it was a common flaw with the clear 2019 editions. JB were very nice and said they need to go back because the record companies need to know of these flaws or else they will never learn to improve.

 

I prefer Black also because you can see the flaws much better and of course scratches and I think they look cool. I admit to having a few coloured ones though, because some of the newer things only come in that.

 

It is going to be tricky when all these clear vinyls hit the second hand market & record fairs to see if they are any good or not prior purchasing eh?

Sunday morning awesomeness.

 

Only my second spinning of this, and the first before significant changes were made.

 

The breathiness of her voice is stunning, and on Seven Years, you could hear the tiny almost inaudible sounds her mouth makes forming, and in between, words... like she was singing privately a few metres in front of me.

 

Musically it’s just stunning... line only a first album after years of nailing the clubs can.

Day trip to Sydney for a speaker audition. Records only. Taking along my JC1 amps and a lady who was Madonna before Madonna (in fact the entire band that she complemented so perfectly).

Was assured there's plenty of variety available in-house.

I think I’ll slowly pick up all/most of the APs... all still readily available... but the 24/192 on Qobuz is amazing... so I have to rationalise.

In 1988 the Cowboy Junkies recorded The Trinity Session in a church in Toronto, Canada, all in a one night session and using a single microphone to a DAT recorder. Nearly 20 years later they went back and did it all over again and the result was this album, Trinity Revisited. Margo Timmins' voice is addictive and the whole album to me has a unique haunting presence throughout.

I was just about to award you a gold star for good taste😀

Have a listen to this great Australian band starting with the first record as a way to redeem yourself 😀

You’re right, I do like the handful of tracks I’ve listened to by Halfway on Tidal so far and just started to play Rain Lover, which looks like it might be their latest effort. Very similar to a band I like a lot, that’s Uncle Tupelo.......who I presume you’ve heard?

Yeah, I've been a fan of Farrar and Tweedy for a long time, but like you, I struggle with a lot of what Wilco do..............maybe it was Jay Farrar's influence I was enjoying more.

Twin Peaks - "Limited Event Series Soundtrack" - 2LP Green Vinyl

 

Not to derail the thread but I disagree with comments regarding coloured vinyl being a poor cousin to black. Some of my best sounding/quietest pressings are on coloured vinyl, and of those "coloured", more often than not the clear presses are sensational.

      Hi all,
       
      I am interested to hear if anyone has come across a DSP based active speaker that truly does a vinyl analog signal justice.
       
      I am not suggesting that I have an amazing set of ears but I can usually pick a lack of warmth and clinical objectivity from DSP filters especially those that are situated in active digital speakers. 
       
      I really like  listening to digital music through a digital speaker but there seems to be loss when trying to experience vinyl.
       
      Does anyone else have a similar experience?
       
      Can anyone recommend a digital speaker that does vinyl justice?
       
      thanks

      This review is somewhat of a hybrid review, being the component in question started off as somewhat of a mongrel, as many Linn LP12s are- an original afromasia plinth with the classic fluting, made in 1975. When I first purchased it, I took it to Audio Genesis in Sydney, where they performed budget priced upgrades to a late pre-cirkus bearing and subchassis, along with a new armboard and cable for the Basik arm which graced it. For some years I used a high output excel MC cartridge, and then an AT OC-9, and all was well, as I enjoyed purchasing second hand vinyl in the 1990s at cheap prices. After moving down south to Melbourne, it continued to make good music, with a steady diet of music from the 2000s, and the riches of the as yet sleepy used market. After having kids and spending lots of the past 15 years riding bikes, in the past 3-4 years, I decided that it was time to give the old girl a bit of love. I had purchased a few cartridges over the years, which given it was running through an ME-15 pre with an MC board, were all moving coil. AT PT-33 was a well priced favourite, which was superseded by an AT OC-9/mk3, and the Basik gave way to a Jelco 750D, with it's ability to swap head shells. The first big structural modification that I did to the table was a about 2 years ago, when I bought both a cirkus bearing and kore subchassis. This clearly made a difference to the sound of the deck, and the subchassis was much easier to set up, largely due to the fact the the old subchassis was slightly bent! The turntable retained a lot of the Linn rhythmic sound that keeps you listening, though the bottom end was tighter. I found that at times the detail in the high percussion was good, though it seemed to come and go a little. I also bought a trampolin 2 base, which I thought was an improvement on running it without a base, as I had done. Given I had given myself a little bit of a buzz before with the valhalla and its greater than mains voltage, and my kids were getting tall enough to reach it on the wall shelf, this was more a safety upgrade rather than a sound upgrade, though it definitely improved the looks of the deck. Another amateur structural mod that I did was to fit corner braces to the original plinth, and re-glue the corners, which did seem to tighten up the sound. This brings me to the subject of the current review...
       

       
      2019 was a year of reduced spending and hard work, and towards the end of it, as a Christmas present, my partner suggested that I should think about getting one of those plinths that I had talked about after I saw them at the Hifi show.
       

       
      I had seen this sign with a few examples in the VAF room, and discussed them with Simon from VAF, who said that he and another bloke, Ben, were starting a business around turntable setup, maintenance and upgrades, and the plinths were part of that. No they weren't yet for sale, as they were needed to show some shops. I put thoughts of immediate purchases out of my mind, and thought about other things. Now that the opportunity came to purchase one, got into contact with Ben, through the website www.hifiguru.com.au . I checked out a few of the models they had on offer on the still pretty rudiimentary website, and really had my heart set on a red gum plinth with a fantastic wavy grain. Ben got back to me via email, and we messaged about what was available, and agreed that I would get the Red gum, along with a new Linn top plate. The cost of the plinth was about $1500, which is a little more than a stock Linn plinth, but much cheaper than importing a Woodsong plinth or Booplinth, which were crazy prices. It may seem a bit silly paying this much for the wood surround of a record player, but I reasoned that when I play a record, I listen, let my thoughts wander, and spend quite a lot of time looking at the turntable itself, so getting one that is just beautiful was not so silly. It took the better part of a month to go from agreeing to purchase to getting the plinth itself, due to christmas and holidays, and during that time, I took advantage of a sale at Tivoli hifi to pick up a lingo 4 at a good price. It just seemed that if I was going to update the plinth, the motor had to be done too. 
       
      Come the end of January, and it was all coming together. I met Ben to pick up the plinth, and despite his offer to build up the player as part of the purchase, I really wanted to do it myself. The plinth looked even better in the flesh than I remembered, and certainly than in photos. The top plate was well set and the bolts were vertical. It was time to build. I had borrowed a set up jig and some tools, which make the whole shebang much easier. 
       

       

       
      First up was removing the subplatter, bearing and tonearm from the old table, which was no problem at all. Then was the process of fitting the Lingo 4 into the new plinth, along with the aforementioned bits. All went fairly well, with no issues. Soon I had a table which was fully stocked with parts, just needing tuning.
       

       

       

       
      If any of you have set up the suspension of an LP12, it is not magic, but it does require a bit of futzing around after you have set the platter to level, at about the height of the plinth edge. After the requisite twisting of the spring grommets, and bouncing of the platter, I had achieved a good bounce with no side to side movement. After that I attached and dressed the tonearm cable, which took a little longer, with a bit more twisting and bouncing for good measure. It was ready for the base to be reinstalled (a tight fit) and to be placed on the wall shelf (essential for any turntable in a house with floorboards, in my opinion). 
       

       
      The finished product looks fantastic- a definite step up from the old girl who has travelled so far with me. It sounds fantastic, retaining that rhythmic coherence that LP12's are famous for, but what the Plinth/Lingo 4 add is a little more air in the upper frequencies- cymbals sound a bit more like they should, with less tizz, and a bit more separation of instruments. The biggest change to my ears has been the increased definition of bass guitar, bass drum, and the bottom end in general. It comes across as stronger, but without the kind of amiable boominess that the older versions of the deck have had. I have found that the change has been for the better with all the styles of music that I play, from rock/pop/metal, to jazz and classical. Overall this renovation of my LP12 has been just what I wanted- bringing a bit more audiophile into the musical fun of the original, without losing any of it.
       
      For the moment I am just enjoying it, currently listening regularly, with no thoughts of what comes next.

      I was going to ask about packing lps for a move, but just found a box from Naked Wines - it is really solid cardboard and holds a lot of records ( maybe 40) in an excellent fit- not too heat either. Now to find some more!
      Other suggestions ?
      I hate starting a new stream but. I tried various searches on this unsuccessfully
