  1. i thought the 2xLP 45rpm sounded great. i have both colors of it.
  2. only ever heard good things about Pro-Ject. if i needed a TT now, i'd prob buy the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon. i have the Pro-Ject VCS and haven't had any complaints with it.
  3. what label is this one? is it somehow an import release (for US)? stores are getting purple vinyl too. retail is $31.99. 1234go had a PO for it but now it's sold out. no word on pressing info.
  4. MOV has also done really great pressings, btw. They are almost all, if not all, digitally sourced, but still have been pretty great imo. I have a bunch of those. Plain, on the other end of the digitally sourced spectrum, almost always suck. But i have a couple that aren't terrible. As an only option until a better reissue comes along when the orig. pressing is super expensive. Rhino is super hit/miss. For a while, they couldn't get shit right.
  5. i think the tone poet ones are done by same people who did music matters (kevin gray).
  6. The Technics 1200 isn't a p-mount. My old Technics model (SL-22 i think? i'd have to look it up) was a p-mount and I had the best Audio-Technica cart for it. My setup now is very budget audiophile. Other than that, I agree w/ what others are saying above. The latest one I bought was Twisted Sister-Stay Hungry. It was solid; didn't blow me away. I have all the Pixies MoFi and those are great. Miles Davis-Kind of Blue I don't pull out too often bc it's like a white glove treatment, but that one is pretty amazing. The silver label MoFi (i forget the differences, but not as high-end as their other stuff...didn't have original master tapes or something)...Cyndi Lauper-She's So Unusual didn't blow me away; it doesn't sound really sound much better than my 99c bargain bin early pressing. But, that isn't necessarily a knock on MoFi. The ORG Nirvana reissues are supposedly the ones to get for audiophile pressings. I don't have MoFi to compare, but all the ORG pressings I bought have been very good quality reissues. I usually listen to ORG Nevermind for album and the anniversary box set for the extras. I don't have an original pressing to compare it tho. I do have original pressings of the others. Their Helmet reissues were good too and comparable to original pressings. Analogue Productions I had kinda hit/miss luck with. The Music Matters jazz reissues are really fucking great. You can definitely tell a different on those even on a cheap turntable. If you can keep the audiophile pressings in like new shape, they usually aren't too much of a risk to buy even though they cost more than other new pressings... bc you can always sell them later on if you aren't impressed, usually for more than you paid. But, rarely for less and if so, not much less.
  7. Screeching Weasel - Wiggle dunno if you know this, but you prob don't actually want a first pressing, you want one w/ a RE-1 in the matrix. unless you just want to have one. the original run has messed up sound. i've been looking to pick one up cheap just to have it, but i have never pulled the trigger on one. that being said, the newest reissue (Monona) is the best sounding of all the pressings imo.
  8. ah, i see. yea, i'm not a big fan of pic discs. i have it, but i rarely play it bc i have chorus of one and the 7"s anyway and i'm not that into the other stuff on it.
  9. interesting. I thought I had ordered the most limited variant (which i usually do) but apparently I didn’t. It must not have been clear what was what at the time. i remember it being kinda confusing (something about descriptions of colors not matching or something). i'd never even heard of pure noise or ordered from them before (well, i'd prob heard of them when they did LTJ but forgot). they seem like the new Rise Records from what i can see. since i didn't know their usual gig, i just picked one of the PN webstore exclusives i guess. i could use a new Dickies jacket. i'd have been kinda interested if the back wasn't so obnoxious and there was a big/tall XX-large option. prob anything on the back would've been a deal breaker for me tho.
  10. they aren't that expensive to pick up (never were worth much if i remember right).
  11. yea, I had to basically stop even bothering to 'count'...i'm more surprised to NOT see it now...it's in every frickin' thing...
  12. i did. and stuff came super fast w/o seam splits.
  13. US or EU? the US black and white copies (esp the white) sounded like shit (super noisy) but the EU white I picked up sounds great.
