Re: Your last listen

Quite a bit at the moment, had a quiet spell over the new year but there is some decent stuff I've bought recently. In no particular order I'd recommend anyone to give some of these a try.

Hi Paul
Have you tried 'Sufjan Stevens - Illinois'? Carrie and Lowell is its natural successor to my ears, both sublime pieces of music.

Re: Classic CD Players

Enjoying this thread everyone. Recently acquired a virtually unused Cambridge 640V2 for £30 and it's getting a lot of use. Still buy a lot of CD's, mainly for the car but all the formats we have these days I think it's great. Still life in the old cd for me.

Re: Turntable Static?

Same mat for several years so cant be that. Stylus was clean so sounds like an earthing issue. Not sure where to start but will investigate. Thanks for the feedback.

Turntable Static?

Tried to play a couple of albums during the evening, all not well. First up sounded as if the stylus was covered in fluff, lots of crackles on vocals etc so checked and cleaned the cart as best I could but no better. Put a different album on with similar result so gave up and listed to the new Jenny...

Re: What was the first record you bought

The Who - Join Together 1972. Cost 45p which for a 10 year old was a lot of money back then. Wish I still had it, great single.

Re: NVA Users and Lurkers

Not far from Chester-le-Street, if anyone wants to listen.
Phono 1, P50, Mk1 A60, and new style Cube 2. Hooked up with NVA interconnects and cables. V small room, man cave if you like but perfectly adequate. You'd be more than welcome.
