Unbelievably fortunately for me my original copy of The Wall by Pink Floyd is my rugged survivor. I bought it in 1979 and really didn't take good care of it. Typically left out of it's sleeves and covered in finger prints and never cleaned, I was a spotty fifteen year old so nothing was treated well. A couple of years ago I had it and a pile of other records ultrasonically cleaned and it plays like new and is now a treasured possession.
My stuff; Toshiba SR-370/Mission 774 /Ortofon Quintet Black, Cambridge CXC CD transport/modified Musical Fidelity X DAC/modified Musical Fidelity X10v3 tube buffer, Nakamichi CA5E preamp, Passive RVC, Proton AA-1150 DMC power amp ,Mordaunt Short Signifer on original factory stands, NVA LS5, Cambridge NP30 network player, Mogami with Neutrik RCA, Sennheiser HD650, 600, Koss Pro4 AA.
