    Just spent a week restoring two hundred or so.

    Prices on those will be going up like the Analogue Recordings labeled ones did.

    Good morning, it is 7.52 am in Germany. I once saw that you used a water bath ultrasonic system to clean the records. I saw that the Chinese offer something like this for around $ 100. How much does such a plant cost in america?

    Japanese pressings are awesome.

    Not all Japan pressings sound good, that's right. Some sound very synthetic. However, this cannot be generalized. It is just as impossible to generalize pressings from England, France, Holland, Germany or America. It always depends on the mastering.

  3. Unfortunately passed away a good 3 years ago, on March 12th, 2017. Al Jarreau. I have almost the entire collection. A great soul singer who started his career in Germany and said his voice was an instrument. He was divine.....

    Good that Quincy Jones and Steve Wonder will hopefully be with us for a long time.

    Steve Hackett & Band: Genesis Revisited

    Fri 17 April 2020

    8 pm

    Großer Saal

     

    Rock meets Classic

    SOLD OUT
    The Steve Hackett & Band concert sensation booked for the Historische Stadthalle in 2020 is unique: they will be presenting two shows together with the Wuppertal Symphony Orchestra and the opera choir of the Wuppertaler Bühnen. The programme includes the performance of the complete and now legendary Genesis masterpiece, “Selling England by the Pound” (1973), excerpts from the virtuoso guitarist’s numerous solo records, as well as several classics such as “Supper’s Ready” or “The Musical Box”.
    Steve Hackett has made one of his own dreams come true by performing a number of Genesis songs live with his band and an orchestra. Charismatic conductor Bradley Thachuk wrote matching choral arrangements when he heard that the Wuppertaler Bühnen had an outstanding opera choir.
    Both concerts will be compered by Klaus Fiehe.

    Thanks, I didn't even know that Steve Hacket was playing in my neighboring town. So do I have to come to America to find out? Great I will see if I still get tickets...

    Except the genesis nonsense...

    That was in 1973 and certainly one of the most pioneering Rock Albums in early rock history. I still find it breathtaking. Peter Gabriel has been the mastermind, like David Gilmour of Pink Floyd.

    We have been making a vinyl comeback in Germany and Europe for a good 10 years. About 7 million records are sold annually. Most of them are new pressings and sound cruel.

    And original pressings from the first duplication series cost a lot of money.......

  7. Yes, that's really tragic with the American vinyl factory, an infinite number of master tapes have probably been lost forever. But it just happened and we can't undo it. That's why we should honor our vinyl treasures all the more.

  8. This is a fantastic thread. I love records and have collected over 1,200 pieces myself over 40 years. But I can't read all 442 pages. I only browsed the last 40 pages and YES I don't know that much American music.I have to work through here in peace. Here are a few records from my collection. I hope they have not been mentioned on the previous pages and if it is not so bad ... I hope.

    Do those connectors have an internal wedge that expands them once they're inserted?

    Yes, the screw head has a mandrel that spreads apart when screwed into the pole terminal. This guarantees maximum contact area and contact stability.

    These connectors are a low-mass principle with OFC copper signal conductors. To protect against oxidation, it is directly gold-plated without nickel. This maintains its high conductivity and is free from magnetic interference. The contact pin is shaped in such a way that its three segments 'bulge' by screwing in the spindle and it can be firmly clamped in each pole terminal. The resulting constant high contact pressure guarantees consistently low contact resistance.

     

    Thanking you very much for your kind attention Mr. Glens......

  10. Hi Guys...... I had to schedule my project. Before I could finish the external crossover, I had to have all the cable sets, i.e. 8 x 12 mm2, each 52 inches long. My speaker cables are all DIY. It makes no sense to finish the external crossover first and then start with the cable layer. This naturally delays the work on the external crossover by 1 week. I only work on them if I have enough concentration in the evening, I'm in a bad mood, then I prefer not to do anything. Quality and perfection are my top priority. In Germany we say .... Good things take time. Here you can see how I make my speaker cables.  See you soon   😎

    If your work sounds as good as it looks......

     

    :smile:

     

    Thank you very much ......

    unfortunately the MK II cannot play without a crossover, it will take about 1 week. Then I will know if I will be rewarded by my queen for this innovation, the time and financial expense of mine. I think I am currently building the most beautiful and best sounding RF 7 MK II in the world. A prototype and unicat. If there is someone else, e.g. there is a similar project in America that I would like to get to know. I don't know anyone yet, neither in Germany nor in Europe. 😇
