This summer (2012) I wanted to play some old 70's LP's (JazzFunk/FolkRock) and those few 80's albums and 12 inches I already had.
(Did not have had a turntable since 1992 ( it was CD time!
I always liked the Duals by looks and reputation, so bought an 505-1 from a person (old technician) who does refurbish those vintage TT's and sell them for little money.
It's a very nice TT and works well, I like the 'manual' handling and not those 'automatic' fancy things.
It sounds good with the Ortofon cartridge.)

Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense
One thing which does not make sense is how to add album art to the thread though.

I copy image into flickr (www.flickr.com) , then cut/paste the html language for the image (click "share" in flickr, or html link (I think in the alternative www.photobucket.com), then click the HTML icon here in the WHF comment box, paste the html stuff that you've copied and click update.)
It's a bit of a pavlova but give it a try
By the way, if you ever get to see/hear the blu-ray of stop making sense, it's superb.
3-disc Music on Vinyl production - really good sound quality, and such great music. Clapton et al owe him so much !!!!
Takes me back to 1987, I bought this album at the Bristol HiFi show of that year, Steve Gibbons was the entertainment after the exibitors dinner on Saturday night. A great sound then and now, I am enjoying it with my new Northwest Audio re-tip. Its is a live recording at The Dublin Castle, Camden Town . . . great music . . . the volume is up!!!
Godspeed You! Black Emperor- "Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!"
