  1. I picked up one of the AAEA 2012 45rpm represses which sounds sublime. I have an original pressing of RTS which always sounded like it was mastered a touch too hot, I wouldn't mind listening to the new mastering especially a 45rpm version. As others have said, TDL needs a reissue. HC and SNASM both need to debut on vinyl. Anyone want to buy a hardly used AAEA live on white vinyl

  3. Thanks AGB, its better than nothing! I only saw it on my mobile phone whilst squinting into the sun - I guess we will all have to wait till 9th June. Hope the 2 disk version is cut at 45rpm, if you wait is an amazing sounding piece of vinyl
  4. Thanks allenh, I have a Nottingham Analogue AceSpace with heavy kit and AceAnna arm fed by a Benz Ruby II. The NAS is better in so many areas yet this humble AR TT really has something about its presentation, so much so I'm tempted to swap the NAS for another bouncy deck (something I never expected).
  5. Thank you both. I added some damping to the stamped steel sub chassis, not sure if it had any real effect? However, the TT does sound better than it did, not sure if that's because of the more rigid plinth, damping, that it got a good service, all of this or its all in my head? "I still think you need to explore the bouncy side of the turntable question a bit more" Can you expand on this? "Now do you fancy making another plinth?" I would but it took the best part of 2 months and cost £100 just in parts, that varnish alone was £30!
  6. Here's one I made from an old and ugly AR deck using ply, ebony veneer and yacht varnish. It was time consuming but came out quite well. Pictures at the end of the thread https://www.vinylengine.com/turntable_forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=90580
  7. As others have said it will be a sideways step, so long as they spin at the right speed, you really need to spend a lot for turntable improvements. I have 2, one cost over £5k (Nottingham Analogue Ace Space with heavy kit and ace Annalog arm) and one I picked up used for £100 (Audio Research AB101 with stock arm) and although they sound quite different they both sound great. The differences of one being about mass and the other is on suspension. The things that make the most difference as others have said are the arm, cart and phono stage. Ultimately, MC cartridges pull more from the music. If you get a better phono stage you'll soon be picking up/wanting to try a MC cart.
  8. Looking forward to this too, she's not made a bad album yet.
  9. I wonder how many copies of the ltd marbled/signed vinyl were made/available? I was on holiday with just my iPhone when it was released, I bought one but only saw the images really tiny. I have no idea what it looks like and can't find any images of it online and the product page displays a 404. Anyone downloaded a pic?
