  1. they reversed my order so apparently sold out now
  2. am i the only one who rides hardest for ITMITC
  3. just got shipping confirmation from bullmoose for ziggy
  4. There's no downside to amazon preorder as long as you remember to cancel before release...might stumble upon a price break or a limited release
  5. yeah i might end up going that route, its like $560 to get it retipped through a dealer.
  6. installed a grado gold, will report back
  7. so finally found a marantz tt15s1 problem...the cantilever on the CA cart is precarious and mine has broken, not blaming the device as my children likely had something to do with it, but Im not sure I can replace the stylus. Any thoughts on replacements? Really dont want to spend >500 on a cart right now, am looking at the nagaoka mp150, but happy to listen to all suggestions for repair of the CA cart, as well.
  8. agree, always looking out for copies of these
  9. fuck the haterz, you do you, VMP
  10. Honestly, Ive found most things with the MFSL label to be an excellent purchase, so thats a start for most of the heavy hitters
  11. nah...just shortened Dark Side Of The Moon and "big players" is like most 60-70s multi-platinums like DSOTM, Abbey Road, Aja, Rumours, etc.
  12. *Or am I better off hanging around Discogs and waiting for a decent quality "Original" to pop up at a acceptable price? * This, in my opinion, for most non-DSOTM things. Its probably pretty easy to identify the best-sounding reissues for the big players (, steve hoffman forums) or at least those that wont be tragic.
  13. yeah im kind of surprised they followed up DD with Tidal, honestly. Should have waited until June.
  14. for what its worth, heres my opinion. it starts with, "im not surprised, but surprised" if its kevin morby if you recall, most all new DD subscribers had to sign at least 3-month agreements. there was no way the third album was going to be a banger/in demand release. theres also no way there are 30K morby fans out there, much less those subscribed to VMP. so, they press 10-15K of these (which wont cost nearly as much to license), wait for people to make swaps, press more if needed...essentially, this month is worth probably 500-800K in dollars, and it will allow them to clear out some of the old ROTM (since plenty of people will swap), in addition, its highly unlikely they will have to hold onto 15-20K of the current ROTM. the real test will be can they sustain the subscriber uptick, and I think this is why the next ROTM will be on the level of DD, but they were always going to have a "meh" release this cycle in order to maximize the profit from DD. anyone else think the current business model is one that helps facilitate a sale? i think thats the logical next step (assuming it hasnt already happened) i really like kevin morby, also, but will likely swap
