  1. This morning a new Yamamoto headshell arrived in the mail, didn't have time to take care of it at first, then in the early afternoon I started installing the Osawa 301 Moving Iron pickup into the headshell. In the process, I broke off a ferrule from a headshell cable. Since I always have some in my spare parts store, this was no problem. So I soldered a new one and could then install the pickup and put it into operation. Then still the Azymuth at the Headshell as well as the VTA adjusted. The developer Yazuo Osawa gave the OS 301 his name who developed moving iron pickups himself in the early 1980s - raised to legend by some fans - and later worked for the manufacturer Fidelity Research. Osawa can therefore already come up with an undeniable experience in the construction of cartridges. Later he moved to Nagaoka and developed, among other things, the legendary Nagaoka MP 100 to MP 300 OS series. The Nagaoka MP 300 OS I also have in my collection, but can not use it yet because it is too light , so it is not compatible on the 162 gram counterweight of the SME arm, comes the 90 gram counterweight finally from England , I can use it.

  5. Here is another album that sounds so much better on my Technics SL-DL1 with the linear tracking. Excellent l/r separation in Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits.

  6. Weigh in. Started at 198.8 last Sunday now at 191.8. Yep I know a lot of it is water weight but still the belts not as tight. As LF said "the key is not to binge on the carbs you've been craving". On the positive side Atkins and Keto allow bourbon! Started out foggy but now the sun is out and it feels almost spring like. LF playing tennis with her group. Swanky is sleeping.......... Gents....enjoy your weekend!

  14. Well done .....gonna tell you something about the Shure M 75 The shure system par excellence ! With the original needles (round needle also Cleorec) one of the best budget systems that were ever built. Not for nothing were all youth rooms and discos in the 60s, 70s with sound. Was also not exactly cheap to buy during his lifetime. Who mounts it today should pay attention to the fact that it, like all Shure of this age is a 15 ° system. Runs therefore super on all changers with 24 ° geometry. Then it plays with a lot of pressure and dynamics a very dry overtone bass with good resolution even in the treble, and shows why it was for years the standard system in discos. Has this fascinating Shure "presence drive", this fantastically good midrange resolution, combined with extremely good dynamics. With the ED variant is no longer missing much to the absolute top league. With a Jico SAS needle by far the best Shure of all time.

  22. So I almost forgot, on the post 6 or 7 pages ago about connectors. German spades and connectors are the best. https://www.vhaudio.com/connectors-speaker.html I have done extensive testing on all of the connectors they offer, blind A/B, etc. I have identified the unique sonic signatures of each connector offered on that webpage and condensed all of the information into a 57 page, cross-referenced white paper. I'm running a Christmas special and offering a 50% discount on the White Paper for the next week.

  24. Yea, I'm workin harder now! 😂 Forrest Richard Betts (born December 12, 1943) is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter, and composer best known as a founding member of The Allman Brothers Band. Betts departed the Allman Brothers Band in 2000 under acrimonious circumstances and continued with a solo career that had begun in the 1970s. Highway Call is the debut album by Dickey Betts (under the name Richard Betts), of The Allman Brothers Band.[6][7] It was recorded in 1974 in Macon, Georgia, at Capricorn Studios.

  26. Yup, M75 and this one's a Dual 1214, the 1218 is still in pieces and being cleaned. I bought this LP a few others from a fellow member on the Dual Forum, doubles and stuff he didn' t listen to anymore.

  29. @JohnJ yea a bit of a tease BUT I tried something different today with that lp.. First time through it was just like most lp's. Slow and a bit different on the first couple sides and getting even better on sides 3 & 4. Today I started 4,3,2,1 and it's totally KILLER played in that order. AND I found my lil flashlight I use hunting albums! I was getting tired of wearing this 😂

  30. OK, it's official. I'm on it! Don't know how long I'm gonna last though. Maybe I should start with some Phil Collins first instead of this play. One heck of an album though!

  32. Um, NO. Roy's latest networks (AL5, and AK6) were both from Paul's notebooks (which were given to Roy). You would have to ask @Edgar about the poles, etc., etc. He was smart enough to follow along with Roy as he was explaining what he did. I simply copied off of Edgar and got an A+.

  33. Well at least it felt more like Christmas there! Brother said he thought his hombres would spell that with a j instead of an h. Here it's been 60 and rain for several days still going on now with that humidity up from 80 to 100% again. It will dry out tomorrow and from 50 something in the am drop to 30s in the pm like December should be... for me anyhow.

  34. this is tamale season. We had beef tamales last night. Dragged my sorry butt out and hung 250ft of Christmas lights. I didn't really feel like doing it. It was cold and breezy...No sooner than it got dark, the neighbors calls..... not to complain... to thank us and to tell us how much she likes them.That made me feel a whole lot better... that and I got to use my wife as a hand warmer after I got done hanging the lights.

  39. I SHOULD be doing something in here today w/my stuff. Have all my new albums in the cabinet and in order. Opened up the new top shelf on the wall and after adjusting new stuff w/the old stuff and moving the new out I'll have even more room. Now IF you followed all that crap I just spewed you'll know why I'm not 'ON IT." Might just spin a few and do a lil work.
