  1. Hey hey! Thanks for the reply Never even thought of that actually, so appreciate you bringing it up! Will have to see if I can test a pre-amp tube box out in the wild prior to ordering online... Because I like my record player sounding nice and crisp, And based off what I'm seeing review wise, Tubes give off a much warmer sound which I'm not really looking for... In the meantime though I think I'll be ordering the Pro and just using my current equipment until the time comes where I feel an upgrade is truly necessary. Thanks!
  2. Hey hey! Thanks for the reply I probably should have mentioned in my original post that I have already upgraded to the acrylic platter and switched the original stylus / cartridge out to an Ortofon Super OM20 which I've been using for the past ~5 years or so... I guess that's one of my reasons for wanting to upgrade since I've had the Debut III for so long and have pretty much gotten my fair share out of it... not to mention I just think the Debut Pro looks so damn sexy! Solid remarks though in regards to the pre-amps... other than the huge difference in price and how cool and sleek most of them look, I'm sure the actual upgrade in sound is probably very minimal... Given how my current setup is though, I unfortunately can't use my Sony's preamp because of limited space and the placement of my record player, not to mention the extremely short hardwired audio cables / grounding wire... Also appreciate the recommendation of adding an active woofer to my speakers... never gave that a thought before but will definitely look into it! Appreciate it!
  3. So the time has come that I'm finally due for an upgrade given I've had my Debut III for about 10 years now and am ready to sell it and get myself something a wee bit nicer and pricier... Given I've had close to zero issues with my current player I was looking at upgrading to the Pro-ject Debut Pro along with a new pre-amp... Below is my current setup and what I am looking at upgrading to... Current Set-up / Upgrade: * Pro-ject Debut III (Upgrading to Project-Debut Pro) * Pro-ject Audio Phono Box (Upgrading to Project Tube Box S2) * Sony STR-DH190 Receiver * Polk Audio T-50 Speakers My main question is really in regards to the new pre-amp I am wanting to purchase... Is that too much or too high quality for the setup I'll be working with, and if so, should I possibly settle on something a bit cheaper like the Pro-Ject Phono Box S2? Possibly any other recommendations? Thanks in advance!

  5. Thinking about just cancelling my order at this point... Looks like the Brooklyn Vegan / Hard Times variant has been pushed to 8/5 now 😑
  6. Super early apparently... I was on the site @ 9:45 CST and they were already gone...
  7. Yikes! I completely forgot they had both releases tied into this thread, lol. My post is referring to the Rancid release...
  8. Got this in the mail a couple days ago and was amazed at how beautiful it looked... even better then the mock-up! Just got around to finally playing it after a thorough cleaning and can’t believe how horrible it sounds ☹️ Had some pretty gnarly surface noise throughout about half (if not more) of the album it’s almost un-listenable. What a bummer. Anyone else have this experience with their pressing?
  9. Appreciate the reply my man! Gonna keep trying for a colored copy for the time being, but if I strike out I'll definitely reach out. Thanks!
  10. Just got into this band and would love to own this on vinyl... Looking specifically for the 2nd pressing (blue/pink split) or the 1st pressing (cyan). Lemme know if you have a copy you'd be willing to part with and hopefully we can work something out Thanks!
  11. Reached out to them on IG and received the below response... shouldn’t be much longer 🙏 ”Hey! Were finally getting the last of the vinyl this week after repeated delays. Theyre in our state and will be at the post office as quickly as possible after. Youll see that tracking number update and well be posting updates here. This ones been a punisher. Appreciate the patience”
  12. Looks like MLIW posted some of the yellow Deathwish exclusives (limited to 159) on their site in case anyone missed out. *Bonus: they’re shipping NOW! https://modernlifeiswar.bigcartel.com/product/tribulation-worksongs-volume-3
  13. I emailed them yesterday looking for an update and they told me to check the product page for a shipping update... I did and only saw the street date release of the album (10/22) which they confirmed was also the shipping date... however I find that quite hard to believe. So as it stands, guess we won't have a real update until we receive a shipping confirmation email, IF they'll even send one 😑
  14. Hell yeah! Copped Looks to already be sold out too... Wonder if these were extra's they found of the 2016 repress? https://www.discogs.com/release/9544266-August-Burns-Red-Messengers
  15. I scored the bandcamp variant so if y'all wanna DM me your email addy's I'll send you over some files 🤙
  16. Unoriginal Vinyl just posted the below on their IG story... I'd say everything is gonna be alright
  17. I feel like the CW exclusive looks insanely cool, but am too terrified with my recent purchases of smash records (containing dark colors) that it would come out looking anything like the mock-up... had to go with the Brooklyn Vegan exclusive.
  18. Pretty stoked my cloud variant came in today! Not as pretty as the mock-up pics, but still pretty rad... Obviously not for sale... Sorry 🙃
  19. No shipping email on the cloud variant either Hoping one comes through soon tho. Also would anyone be kind enough to hit my DM's with a good site to score this? I thought I found a good file this morning but probably ended up with a virus on my Mac instead, hah. Would appreciate it!
