Thanks John. No I really like the RPM5.2 I just thought there may be some others I should take a look at. I'll have a look at those, thanks.ÿ
How much of a problem is the dust though, do you clean each time you play a record?ÿ
A The latest album by Blackmore`s Night which I just mentioned is the first they have released on vinyl. Therefore in the past I haven`t really had much choice! I own every recording by one of my favourite bands called Mostly Autumn but unfortunately they are all on cd and are unavailable on vinyl. Had they have been I would have bought both formats if I`m honest because they are one of my favourite groups.
Can't agree more with your sentiments Survivor! regarding Mostly Autmn, I too am a big fan and agree it's a shame none of their titles are released on Vinyl.
Take the plunge Octopo, be decadent! Buy new releases on CD and 180 or 200 gram vinyl
Use cd for convenience and vinyl for serious listening sessions. Good luck!!
Pike, you`ve got great taste in music! Bit gutted I won`t see them live in London until next year due to postponement of September gigs. Where do you see them live?
I just give it a regular sweep with a kind of retractable makeup brush actually - looks a bit like a shaving brush. The cork mat is not as bad as the felt mat, though I prefer the felt one just for looks. If you wanted to protect the platter you could leave an old record on it, or you can get proprietary blank vinyl disks.
You get some cool white cotton gloves with it though
I think the ladyfriend might get a little perturbed if I started polishing my hifi gear with her make up tools, luckily though I have a blower brush thingy from when I used to use negatives, looks like this:
So... JD is METROMAN (schoolboy snigger).
Thank you and sorry taken so long to reply but lost the thread
I saw them at the Gloucester Guilhall in April...i think it was there first or second gig. I've kept missing them over the years but made a concerted effort to see them this time around.
To be honest, I was a little dissappointed. They had lost their regular sound guy due to illness and the mix, particularly early into the set, wasn't great. Also the new drummer, Henry Bourne, was struggling to keep time with the older material. On "Heroes Never Die" he kept trying to end the song early and received scowles from both Bryan and Heather! Also I don't think Anne-Marie Helder is as good live on flute as Angela was
and yes..I had to look up some of the names for correct spelling..I am that sad
Still well worth seeing them though!
