  1. The analog thread.

    Looks great, and i bet it sounds pretty good too! A bit unpractical placement of the right side acoustic plate blocking the records, but i guess it's worth it sound-wise

    i love the fact that there is a computer mouse on the platter for no reason.

    if you have more than one cartridge and several TT's with different arms, a good protractor is more than worth the cash. that thing costs way too much though! you could get the excellent Dr.Feickert protractor for way less. http://www.analogueseduction.net/alignment-tools/dr-feickert-ng-high-precision-alignment-tool.html doesn't come with a mirror and magnifier though, but you could afford to buy those with the money saved

    Too bad it will probably end up costing more then a sp10mk3...

    Droool... A nice touch is the fact that it will be a drop in replacement for the sp10mkII, so you wont have to make a new plinth.
  6. What are you listening to Part the Third

    I went to see the Oslo philharmonic orchestra and Leif Ove Andsnes perform Stravinsky, Rachmaninov and Shostakovich this friday, and now thanks to BBC 3 i can relive that moment, as they performed the same sets on the Proms yesterday. I think they did a very good rendition of Rach.4 http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b092k4sn i need to rip this from the web with audacity or something so i can keep listening to even after they remove it from the web.

    I can recommend Audiolense for the digital XO and room correction, though you would need to run bootcamp to use it. It´s not the most user friendly program, but it works really well once you figure everything out, and integrates everything really well.

    i recently did some refurbishing of my apartment, and decided to rotate the living room 180 degrees, to allow even more room for the stereo. this allowed me to place the TH subs in the corner, freeing up enough space to fit both my TT's! new USM Haller shelf (built from vintage parts) - Aw yiss! mmm... so smooth So now i have the AT33 mono on the NRK tts3000 (for mono records obviously) and the AT33ptg/II on the SR sp-10mkII I have routed them through an rca switch going to the RIAA, so i can change between them easily. the shelves pull out, and has enough room for around 300 records. a very convenient way to store the currently most played records close to the TT's.

    Yeah, no doubt about it. Had it happened now i would have rolled up my sleves and demanded a free repair, but when it happened i was so fed up with everything i just though fuck it, and went on with my life.

    I recently bought The Atlantic years MONO box, and it sounds really nice compared to the super cheap DOL records i owned previously. Now i really need to borrow a proper stereo release from someone and compare it.

    The process to have it serviced in the first place was a real clusterfuck, and at the time i didn't have the energy to go back there and start a fight over whose fault it was. It was an old watch, so i guess there was no guarantee it would be properly waterproof, even with new gaskets. still have it laying in bottom of my bedside drawer, but it needs a new non rusty movement to be brought back to life.

    that sucks, hope it was just some slight condensation, and nothing serious. i had the gaskets changed on my old seiko diver three years ago, but one week later, it looked like this after a swim:: I was on a holiday in Egypt at the time, and the result was a rusty movement and lots of blemishes on the dial.

    i had no luck in my quest for used carts. i guess they trade them back in for a discount when they are done with them or something like that. lots of other fun stuff though

    i also went to tokyo recently, and the used record shopping was even better then i had hoped for! so many shops everywhere! well stocked, organized and best of all, properly graded! surprisingly, i didn't find much (old) japanese music though, which was a shame, as i really wanted some Taeko Ohnuki records (i already have them on cd, but i want vinyl too!) i also bought a AT33 mono, as it was so cheap down there.

    it's good to hear you hare having successfully gone down the digital RIIA route. will probably end up doing some needledropping to rip music i can't find anywhere else, though i will probably just continue playing the record and not the digital file.
