thats it, end of story . . . ?
The Turntable Saga, I think finaly comes to and end:
Got new TT/PSU today, from the dealer. He tested it first, well he said, its better but not perfect???? OK says I, I'll give it a try . . . he's right its not perfect, better than the first one, but still not 100% there is a buzz . . . surprised Rega have let this problem get out?
I nearly just unpluged it to return it . . . however, being the curious type, how does it sound, especially compared to the first poor(er) example? . . .
My first reaction was that of an audiophile, cringe as I turned the volume up . . . put old habits behind me, listen objectively. The buzz cannot be heard from the listening position at normal volumes. First hurdle over . . . music, how is it sounding, back to the beginning of the track . . . Jennifer Warnes, 'Bird on a Wire' and 'Famous Blue Raincoat' . . . Then my very old Sandy Nelson LP, 2 tracks; 'Let there be Dums' and 'Then There Will be Drums', of course at volume!!! Finally I'm listening to, as I write, the whole of Carol Kidd's album, 'Carol Kidd'.
What can I say, air, air and more air, giving space around instruments and individuals with totally believable imaging with an atmosphere of live recording . . . detail that 'crosses the t's and dots the i's' . . . I seem to be cutting the buzz out mentally?
The changes are subtle, but as a 'whole', it is a wonderful musical experiance???
My only problem is personal . . . the sound quality, to me, is so good, I can hardly believe my ears, I feel as though I am kidding myself???? And-yet, my experience in my previous life tells me, its right. Hazel, despite her lack of experience says its very, very good, worth all the effort I have put in, she says. OK, a personal problem of 'no confidence in my self' . . . part of my depression symptoms. No friends to help either . . .
. . . thats it, end of story? . . . CJS
