  1. Hurricane Irma vs. VC

    I'm in Fort Lauderdale on the west side of NE Federal right across the street from the border of the evacuation zone lol. I decided to ride it out because I'm in a concrete fortress of a building that's above cat 5 surge elevation, and to make sure my records are okay. Earlier I lost power for about 15 minutes, FPL had it right back though and I haven't seen a flicker since. Luckily it looks like we're gonna miss the really bad stuff.
  2. Primus-Desaturating Seven-9/29

    $18.29 on Amazon!
  3. I ordered Broken and The Fragile yesterday night, and went with 2 day FedEx because it was less than a dollar more than DHL. I got a shipping notice from FedEx this evening and it's already moving from Austin, will be here Friday. Glad I held off, and glad to finally have these.

    VC meetup in the men's bathroom at Haulover Beach this weekend? Saturday and Sunday are both good for me.
  11. Audiophiles, I need your help. So here's my setup: I DJ sometimes, but lately it's more so just regular listening. Unless someone knows something I don't, the Traktor S4 in the middle has a phono preamp built in. It has a phono input and sounds fine. I have an Onkyo amp (top right corner) that I believe was intended to extend an existing system. It's different than a receiver, it just has a single set of RCA L & R inputs and outputs in the back. There is a small volume knob on the amp that I leave at about half-way, and I use the controller to adjust the volume. I run the output from the Traktor S4 into the amp (probably obvious). My mom got the Onkyo years ago and never used it, so I took it, and it's been kicking for about 10 years and works beautifully. Above the amp, I have a speaker switch box. My speakers are pretty budget, the outside ones are Sony's but had good reviews, and the ones on the window shelf thing are Yahama's that are decent sounding to me as well. I'm no audiophile however. I have the Yahama's so I can turn them around and listen to them in the room behind. Right now, I'm listening to both sets at once, and it sounds good to my ears. It seems to bring out the mids a lot more, and I still hear the stereo separation. Is there any reason I shouldn't be doing this? Before I start rambling more, I guess I'm just looking for someone knowledgeable to critique what I'm working with. My apologies if this has been addressed before, I did a couple searches but couldn't find anything relevant. And thanks in advance!

  13. Music Experiment

    Location: Ft. Lauderdale? Go on...
  14. Awesome, thanks for your advice. I wish I could put the speakers on separate stands but unfortunately don't have the space. I've been thinking about getting a new cart since I've been doing less DJing, so that will be my next move. I looked into the preamp on the S4 and it seems Native Instruments are using the same preamp they used in their Audio 8/10 etc interfaces, which are great boxes. So I'll stick with it.
  15. Post Your Record Storage Area

    Thanks! It's a Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster, so it mumbles slowly and incoherently. Or maybe that's my playing.
  16. Post Your Record Storage Area

    I just added the 666th record to my collection so what better time to share my adult play area:
  17. The Vinyl Deals Thread (non-Amazon)

    Yep... I ordered three from them during the last 25% sale and it came in one of their shitty flat mailers... one side of the mailer had come completely unsealed. I could look in and see the records. Unbelievably there was no damage, I got lucky.

    Thanks for the Chelsea Wolfe!
  19. This mildly annoys me too, but when in Rome: http://fbuy.me/fgbDz
  20. Some Cheap Vinyl at Amazon

    The Smiths - Rank (2LP live album) for $17.89 w/ Prime. Only 4 left in stock right now. I usually wouldn't classify this as "cheap" per se, but it's definitely a deal, considering camelcamelcamel says it's been close to or above $30 before this price drop and it's currently at the lowest price it's ever been on Amazon.
  21. It's part of Earache's "Vinyl On Demand" store (http://ondemand.earache.com)... basically they have a pre-order system set up and when a record gets to 500 pre-orders it gets pressed. Unfortunately Us and Them is at 51 right now. I've been waiting on this too and hoped there would be more demand considering it's never been pressed on vinyl.

    Also temporarily OOS, David Bowie - David Bowie AKA Space Oddity $11.99 w/ Prime
