  1. The analog thread.

    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.

    Life was getting too easy and comfortable, so i decided to go full retard - tossed the minidsp in the bin and bought an Audiolense license and a lynx aurora 8 channel dac. The Audiolense speaker XO and TTD room correction really rocks, but getting my old surface pro 2 to do live convolution of vinyl playback turned out to be a bit much. so now i need to build a powerful (but silent) media computer to do the maths, if i want to listen to my records... looking forward to trying out digital RIIA conversion as well. (Dac and computer haphazardly strewn about)

    oh man, this oscar peterson box is almost too good! if you find a copy, buy it. don't worry if your not a OP fan already - you will be

    one day when i'm loaded i will hunt one of those down! for now i will keep staring at my sbgh001, and forget it exists.

    the tudor chrono looks good until you see the sideview
  13. What are you reading now?

    now that you mention it, my tongue does taste a bit different today.
  14. What are you reading now?

    i started reading "this book is full of spiders" yesterday, and got halfway through before going to sleep. It's not what i would call a scary book, but my subconscience obviously thought so, since i woke up like ten times through the night because i was pretty sure there was something in my room trying to kill me. good times
  15. What are you reading now?

    Though The Lost fleet has it's moments, similar to the later Honor Harrington books it's not really that well written, and can get tiresome and repetetive really fast. I somehow managed to read 6 volumes since my brother kept buying them, but i think the only book in the series i truly enjoyed was the second one. On a more positive note, i just finished the three books in Liu Cixin's "remembrance of earth's past" books. Truly excellent stuff, and both "the three body problem" and "death's end" are now firmly placed in my top 10 books ever shelf
