What Are You Listening To - The Reckoning

4,495 posts in this topic

The RP8 looks great, although well out of my financial league.

The ISOsub is what I ordered, although supply problems from IsoKinetik meant that the shop offered me the one with ceramic bearing and a refund of the difference as they'd received stock wrongly badged as having the ruby bearing.

It's quite well thought-out - as well as simple, clear instructions, you get a bit of dowel with a magnet on the end to extract the original (metal) bearing, an alcohol swab to clean the subplatter axle and a bottle of oil with a pipette.

It's recommended that you leave it running for 24 hours to bed in, so that's what it's doing right now, ready for when I get home this evening.

Which LP is going to get the honour of being the first to go for a spin?

Very good question! :D Most of my LPs are, due to space restrictions, up on a high and awkward-to-reach shelf, so it'll probably be one from the section closer to hand - possibly a Joni Mitchell album.

I'm having a music night, which starts off by nothing being on telly so wondering into the music channels and flicking through those incessantly, and then venturing onto YouTube as well for songs that spark a memory, be they good or terrible tunes!

Enjoy :)

...and I did! Definite improvements in various areas. Listened to a LOT of music over the weekend, as there wasn't any decent sport on TV to distract me.

Thats a great show I have seen it before. I had a few days in the Dales over the weekend and managed to stumble across a record fair in Skipton which was a bonus.

Greezy Wheels - Radio Radials. An off-kilter band that would have been called alt.country if they'd come along 30 years later, with more than a hint of Dan Hicks & his Hot Licks.

Listening to a copy of The Wishing Chair by 10000 Maniacs I picked up the other day.

Record fair tomorrow will hopefully see Ullman there.
