    Ultra Vinyl Releases

    Awesome little easter egg there.

    Ultra Vinyl Releases

    Him as an artist I could care less about. This album in particular, I could really care less about. The gimmicks is what I find so interesting. To me, they're pushing the medium. For a format that has been around longer than most of us on this forum, it's interesting to see the execution of new ideas on an old iconic format. I'm surprised someone like Bjork who is always experimenting with delivery hasn't created something outstanding.

    Ultra Vinyl Releases

    Very cool, I hadn't seen their site before
  5. Jack White release Lazaretto Ultra LP in 2014 which had a ton of interesting features within the Vinyl Record. Is anyone aware of similar LE releases that could be considered "Ultra" pressings or any expected releases upcoming? There have been posts about it on this forum but the Ultra edition LP included: - 2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels - 1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, one plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record - Side A plays from the inside out - Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song. - Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record - Both sides end with locked grooves - Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format - Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram by Tristan Duke of Infinity Light Science, the first of its kind on a vinyl record - Absolutely zero compression used during recording, mixing and mastering
  6. Just added two LZ releases and one Quiet Riot to the link above – both of these, the vinyl is in good condition but the sleeves not so much: Quiet Riot - Quiet Riot (LP, Album, Unofficial) (Not On Label) Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti (2xLP, Album, RP, SP ) (Swan Song) SS 2-200 1198 Led Zeppelin - Untitled (LP, Album, Club) (Atlantic, Atlantic)

    Albums That Should Be Pressed on Vinyl

    There are so many I'd love to see pressed, many are smaller bands which I assume cost is an issue. Looks like No Name finally pressed on vinyl but now on backorder: http://www.nonamehiding.com/merchandise/telefone-vinyl

  11. ha! @Tardcore Love the range of answers... I'm always curious how much a pre-amp will make a difference when a solid home stereo amp is in play already. I don't currently have one but looking forward to upgrading stylus and possibly adding pre-amp later this year.

    Record Store Day 2018

    Not sure I want to camp overnight either but even if nothing extremely exciting, I still dig the vibe of hanging out at the shops on RSD just for the good energy and live music. Anyone from Houston going to Cactus this year?
  13. Hey guys, I think among the casual / non-audiophile listeners I talk to, they tend to commonly agree, if you're not after a super high end setup, certain components can be a waste of money. That said, I'd love to hear your personal preferences for which components are your highest priority and which ones you think can save money by either purchasing entry level equipment or not at all? For example, if you hypothetically had $1000 (ish) budget (and wanted to keep some leftover to buy records!) how would you rank the importance or priority of your setup? Turntable Selection - no need to get into specific models necessarily Home receiver - not all created equal and not a necessity for all setups Pre-amp - if your receiver has a good enough built-in, should you invest in more power? Speakers / Headphones - more or less important than some of the above items? Cartridge / Stylus – some people swear by them but is an upgrade worth it for a casual listener? I listed in order of my personal preference, but what do I know?! Did I miss any other considerations?
