  2. Don´t know whether I will have a lot of time to spin some records this weekend , there a many preparations to be done till monday afternoon. I´m going to leave for the rehab early tuesday morning at 7 am. I hope the orthopaedists will get my broken spine and hinges back in a better condition. The last few months I was strictly forbidden to put any kind of heavy strain on my body, so I'm curious. I expect to be back on march 5th.

  4. The general recommended speed limit in germany in the cities is 31 mph,  outside from cities and country roads  is 50 mph, on highways 75 mph and the general speed recommondation on the autobahn is 80 mph , but 1/3 of our autobahns are free from any speed limit , so there the porsches , bmw´s , mercedes, or whatever can speed up to max . 160 mph .

    Why the dual tonearm? One for MM and one for MC?

    Indeed ! At the moment I use an Moving Irion Cart from ADC on the SME 3009 Arm and an Lentek Entré 1 Moving Coil on the Micro Seiki Ma 505 Arm .

    Hu,

     

    Thank you guys, I would like your opinion, are there any important Miles discs missing that I forgot.


    Here is the list of Miles' albums that I own or that are in my basket awaiting purchase, normally these are the "studio" albums, apart from a few Compilations-Anthologies, such as Bird Of the Cool, Walkin' which are 25cm compiled on 30cm LP, especially at the start of your career!
