  1. That is great news... been wanting this album forever. I hope the comment about keeping your schedule open means there will be more live shows for them.
  2. Hey all... looking for a bit of advice on components I should or should not upgrade in my set up. I'm not necessarily unhappy with anything but if I were to upgrade a piece what would make sense based on what I have? I'm guessing my cart would be the weak link, but what option would pair will with my modest setup of pretty much all older gear? I'm pretty partial to the amp though because I love the look/feel of it and the built in phono. I guess that is a separate question as well... would getting a standalone preamp make much of a difference? Thanks! Technics SL 1800 MK2 Shure M97xe Marantz 2015 Klipsch KG 3.2 Floorstanding Speakers

    Baby proofing cube storage

    At first I put everything in a separate room that was gated off, but found I didn't listen as much and I didn't like that. So now it's back in the living room but I have a length of baby gate that hooks together placed in front of it. If my 1 1/2 year old twins knew any better they could just move it out of the way, but the fact that it's there seems to deter them and I've had no incidents so far. Sometimes they go pull/shake on the gate so I'll just re-direct them and try to not make a big deal about it. And I don't move the gate while they are looking. As was just mentioned above.. any records you particularly care about should be moved up high. I also moved the turntable up high so that it couldn't be touched. Pic of my record setup

    The Autograph Thread

    Love seeing all the autographs people have acquired. There's always good stories to go along with most. The ones I have that I can remember are: Frank Turner poster Beach Slang poster Minus the Bear - Acoustics II Into It. Over It. - Standards (Tour Edition) [Evan only] Death Cab for Cutie - Kintsugi Justin Townes Earle - Harlem River Blues Less Than Jake - GNV FL Hop Along - Painted Shut Fugazi - Fugazi EP [Ian only] Cursive - Happy Hollow [Tim only], plus a setlist by the band Moneen - The Red Tree [whole band] and my prized possession... The Beatles - Twist & Shout [Paul & Ringo]

    WANT - The Mercury Program

    About 2 years ago they said they were working on a repress of 'A Data Learn Language'. I think it's supposed to come out this year along with a new EP. So hold tight on that one.
  6. Does anyone have one of these Wal-Mart versions next to an Ikea version? I have a few Ikea Expedits but need to expand and was hoping these would be same size/look side by side.

  8. Great album, but bummed this didn't come with a digital download for that price.

    WTD: IKEA Expedit 2 x 4 Birch Effect

    I saw the Walmart ones put together in-store and they seemed to be exactly the same as the Expedits. Almost like they just rebranded them for walmart. The reviews online seem to indicate others that have purchased them for vinyl without issue. http://www.walmart.com/ip/4-Cube-Organizer-Espresso/29741113
  10. Is the Sunny Day song available for legal download anywhere? Still need a copy of this release (hit me up if you got one), but I just want to listen to the darn thing in my car. That being said, I liked the track a lot... seems like a logical extension of the original incarnation. Doesn't fit with Rising Tide as much. Kind of a more mature version of the first two albums.
  11. Hey... I have a Technics SL-1800 mk2 and the speed seems to have gone off. With the pitch set to 0 the little dots on the side of the platter don't stand still anymore. It's not way off or anything, they just move ever so slightly now. Should I just adjust the pitch until I get them to stand still or is there more to it? Or do I trust the pitch at 0 and not the dots? Thanks!
  12. Make a Playlist for the full comp. Subbing in the missing comp songs with the actual album versions.

    New Pixies EP

    Here's the new tracks: http://youtu.be/bjmcsPpwNas
  14. I also have a Marantz 2015 and recently got some floor standing speakers for it. The receiver is rated for 15 wpc but I believe the ratings then and now are a little different. Probably get more than 15. Anyways, I don't think you need to worry about the watts so much because your max output isn't going to reach the high end of most speakers and therefore no worry of blowing anything out. For receivers with lower wattage output you really should look at the deciBel or Sensitivity rating. You are going to want something over 90dB. These will represent less "power hungy" speakers and therefore be a good fit for your 2015 or other receivers with lower wattage ratings. Basically they do more with less. If you can get something north of 90db that's even better. I just got a pair of these from Craigslist and they sound great: http://www.klipsch.com/kg-3-2 So those you just linked to are rated a 91dB and should be fine depending on the price.
