|Bio:||? Bio? No, I don't think so. I was born, I heard and I've never stopped listening.|
"Now totally committed to the new multichannel SACD format, DMP continues to push the envelope in that never ending quest to
put the listener in the space where the music was performed."
So I listened to the new SACD's.
Yes there was a difference, more warmth? Better colouration? A Little more detail?
Sure, all that - to a degree. But hadn't I felt that before, long, long ago?
Yes that was it! LP's
And so I went out and I started buying, one or two, then more, then many more, then it got serious. I wasn't using the old Dansette of course. I had upgraded long ago to
Rega. And, run through monoblocked Cyrus Amps my new records sounded GOOD. It was worth upgrading the cartridge to something a little more special. Like Ortofon.
Now I started buying in earnest. Charity shops, online, offline, audiophile sites. The LP's were piling up and I had already got some really excellent bargains but - they were filthy.
I tired of evenings spent at the sink with special potions I'd mixed to clean them and it isn't easy buying 100% proof pure alcohol, not even in the UK. OK, I had heard of Vacuum Record cleaners. I hit the web. At Todd The Vinyl Junkie's I found this
It's kinda like the old Dansette I used to have - in appearance. And with the $ the way it was (and is) it was a SNIP. It was pretty inexpensive, not the highest priced, and I was satisfied. I was very satisfied. Until I had an accident with the rega.
I guess I could have got it repaired. But I didn't. Because my dealer (who has almost become a personal friend) mentioned two words. I put them into GOOGLE and I KNEW that nothing less would do. The two words?
I had entered VinylLpHeaven
Nothing would ever be the same again. Not the way I buy my music, not the way I listen to it, nor my bank account and credit card balances. It had gotten serious. So read on fellow Vinyl Junkies.
But before you do you may like going here.
Nick's Vinyl aka 'Sweet Memories'Those with fatter wallets and a penchant for rare Japanese pressings and Obi Strips are more likely to end up here at From £8 - £5,000And if you want to really get your Vinyl Clean and static free a visit to Todd'smay be in order. But, to begin with a large sink and drainer and the right balance of detergent, water, industrial glass cleaner and pure ethyalcohol are useful to have.
