    My replacement came with a "boatload" of vinyl that replaced a few of mine. Some of my oldies are the best/most clean  I have too. Managed to keep me busy doing ultrasound cleaning for about six months. Kept my idle time occupied while handling something really difficult for that year for mom.


    Ended up with a truly MINT Boston-Boston first release & NM King Crimson-Court of the... first rel. too. Some ~rare late sixties releases and a half dozen quads. Zeppelin II and some others that were in noticeably thicker cardboard, differing art & printed sleeves instead of the blank white. Replaced a couple dozen either LPs or covers and tripled the collection.

    Ejected the ones not fit for being under that new-then cart. Miss `em but have youtube!


    Noise?                                         What noise?

    Records don't have to make surface noise, they make music. If you can treat them right, refurb if need be...

    There are no snaps crackles or pops in my vinyl. It's "Inconceivable" the number of times I've seen threads lamenting the venerable vinyl that this thread is all about!

    If only cd's had been out for all those keggers and other times!!

    "I Pity the Fool" that thinks pops and such are a part of the vinyl experience.


    Need.                                                                              more.                                                                         coffee.


    Sounds like your boat load of vinyl was full of gold.  Very nice.  But I agree, regarding vinyl being noisy.  Fortunately I started really taking care of my records in the 80's.  The 70's however were a different story.  I was hard on them.  In the eighties I bought a nitty gritty record cleaning machine.  It was a bit pricey back then, but really was worth it for the long haul.  I believe I got my VPI RCM in the early 2000's.  I've been looking at the ultra sound cleaners.  They make far more sense to me as a better way to clean vinyl.  When I have folks over, and they want to hear my stereo, they are almost always amazed at how quiet the vinyl is.  They only seem to remember records with all sorts of snap, crackle, and pop. That's fine for rice crispies, but not for records.  Cheers!

    Looks like you've got an early version with the leather-like cover like I do @Mossy bottom.

    My vinyl was worn out (no-go for that new $$ mc cart) but the cover was good so the replacement went in it!

    Hi John J, 

    Surprising, the vinyl is still in pretty good shape.  Wish I could say the same for my Truth and Wired.  They were both played hard.  I need to do the same, upgrade the lp and place them in the original album covers.

    Side TWO, Marillion 'Misplaced Childhood', so good on the new gear.  :emotion-29:  IMG-2116.jpg

    Bias meter at rest 🍷IMG-2117.jpg!

    Gary, Looks stupendous!   And that Marillion record must be sounding phenominal!  COOL!

    My Less Baxter LP is just about finished, I'll be heading back to RTM for another magnetic tape play.  I'm keeping it the exotic far east!

    I see a 1971 Allman Bros LP


    My memory is a little faded - but was it Greg that got married to Cher and it only lasted a day or so ?

    Paul, it was a shirt lived relationship.  I remember seeing Cher on the Mike Douglas Show and Mike asked Cher what had happened with her marriage to Greg.  She said he told her he was going out for a pack of smokes and never returned home...

    Mossy, you have a Pmail!  Meanwhile.........SIDE B of 'Timeless' IMG-2091.jpg

    Got it, and replied.

    I'm going to power down.  A few things I need to take care of before it gets too late.  I hope to join in again tomorrow evening 

    Until the next time...

    It can be done Mossy, just the sliding around on the floor to get everything in place correctly.  Both systems can be ran at the same time just like the earlier days with the Klipschorns and RP-280F towers.   I have learned the differences between the two systems and it really is amazing.


    As always, the Klipsch are VERY dynamic and have what sounds to me a wider soundstage!, as you see, they are straight out with NO toe in.   The ML's WITHOUT their subwoofer produce bigger and deeper punch with their bass modules.   I appreciate both designs. :emotion-29:

    Like a really good tasting apple and a really good tasting orange.  Lucky to have both.

    Thanks so much Mossy!  Yes, I had to add the Klipsch Heritage back into Music Hall, and after a long time research.  The Forte 4 was the answer.  I wanted to get Dynaco (new) back in the room as well, but, the Willsenton R8 had such great reviews over this past year, I decided to order one.


    My local dealer has ALL the Klipsch models from the Heritage line INCLUDING the 75th Anniversary Klipschorn AND Jubilee !!  (with diamonds!).  I bought these in the 'distressed oak' with lambswool grills because my old K'horns had the white grills.  Kind of a through back thing :emotion-21:.


    The integrated amp was approved by Tim, and that was all I needed to confirm I made the right choice.   There you have it Mossy.  Only two weeks into this additional system and for sure enjoying them.


    Roy Delgato voiced the Forte' 4 with the new, steep slope xover and to have the sound signature of the Klipschorn!  That was all I needed to hear.  🍷 

    I owned a pair of the first flight of Forte's, and...well you know me, I'm a sucker for the Heritage line of loud speakers. I thought the Forte's were incredible.  I am so glad you got them.  I could only imagine what the ML's must sound like.  But I know the Forte, and they are outstanding!  

    They look beautiful.  It must be nice getting back to a Klipsch Heritage loudspeaker for you..Like an old friend that you haven't seen in years...

    Very cool!

    No doubt you're enjoying them.  They look great in LFMH.

    Garcia?  Sure, why not?  




    Garcia is Grateful Dead guitarist Jerry Garcia's first solo album, released in 1972.[1][4]

    Warner Bros. Records offered the Grateful Dead the opportunity to cut their own solo records, and Garcia was released around the same time as Bob Weir's Ace and Mickey Hart's Rolling Thunder. Unlike Ace, which was practically a Grateful Dead album, Garcia was more of a solo effort, as Garcia played almost all the instrumental parts. Six tracks (specifically those coauthored by lyricist Robert Hunter) eventually became standards in the Grateful Dead concert repertoire.




    Very nice choice Dave!

    Love all the Garcia solo stuff.

    Phenomenal musician.
