  1. Dual 1237 Scratchy Sound

    It sounds like distortion due to a misaligned cartridge to me - perhaps try getting out the protractor and aligning it once more (be sure to get it as exact as possible). If you don't have experience doing this you may want to ask for some help at a local shop; misaligned cartridges can do serious damage to records and the cartridge itself. If that doesn't do the trick you can check to make sure the tonearm wiring is securely attached to the cartridge.
  2. Title says it. I've got a NM copy of Penfold's Amateurs And Professionals on milky clear (/150) that I've only played twice so it deserves a better home. Looking for any pressing of Thursday - War All The Time as long as it's in good condition.
  3. Sunday bump, updated with prices
  4. Got mine as expected, preordered the first day it went up.
  5. Don't like the album whatsoever, but damn... that's a good looking record.
  6. Recent purchases

    Just snagged a copy of Té ‎- Collection (three albums released between 2005 and 2008) on clear vinyl. Been looking for this for a while and a NM copy came up on Discogs for a reasonable price (and shipping from the states) this AM - had to grab it and then come here to gloat.
  7. Doing a little spring cleaning as I approach capacity with my current storage. I can do deals for multiples, I'm down to trades, and I might just throw in some freebies.

  8. I agree with others that the album builds really well, it definitely lived up to my expectations. Even though I don't love every track (yet), I cant get enough of that soulful, wandering voice - the last track is my favorite of the album.
  9. Really happy this is happening, can't get enough of that Enigk rasp
