  2. AAAHHH !!!!!!!!!!!!! wanna return to the rehab clinic 😂, I mean it was like making holidays there , three weeks vacation !

    Full room cleaning service, laundry service, 3 meals a day like in an international hotel kitchen , swimming pools, waterbed hydraulic massages, mudd bathes, sporting centre and so on . I´m really missing that since I´m back home .


    Now I have to take care of these things on my own again  . Okay ...I´m biking , my next public swimminghall isn´t that far away, I´m waiting for my confirmation for the sports excersise club´s time schedule , than I can start up there as well.

    After the easter holidays I´ll start to play tabel tennis again, the trainee halls are closed till april 8th. Lot´s of papwerworks to manage in view to the upcoming possible retirement procedere. Will take up to six month till final decisions are done.


    So it´s better that I shouldn´t complain, I´ll have to make the best out of it.


    A bit of spring time feeling here today ..shall be 60 F in the afternoon and the sun is watching through the clouds as well.

    If you don't mind me asking, what kind of turntable is that? It's beautiful!

    I´ll try to make it short . Well , it´s a vintage japanese Micro Seiki DQX 1000 direct drive quartz controlled . They were built in the late 1970´tees and is the mother of all modern copied tt "oil rigs " . It´s a timeless tt concept that allows to mount up to three tonearms. I use one origin middel heavy modified Micro Seiki MA 505 MK II ( right sight ) and one light modified SME 3009 Tonearm ( back side ) . As I got different MI´s MM´s and MC´s in my cartridge collection it´s quiet important to meet their technical prerequisites like needle compilances and others.


    The wole unit is controlled with that motor controller unit for power on / off ,  quartz lock on / off and speed control

    Have a care when ordering on ebay. 

    Eddie Money-Life For The Taking. White label promo. 

    $10, seller refunded and said keep the record. Lucky I had a great seller. I pinched it together and played it. Played fine 😁. It won't be a daily player!

    @MicroMara just a question.  lol   Welcome back.  :)

    Useless Fact Of The Day:
    The German for "contraceptive" is Schwangerschaftsverhütungsmittel. By the time you've finished saying it, it's too late!

    True Dave ..got my two kids allready . I never used Schwangerschaftsverhütungsmittel, even not the blue wonderpills 😂

    Where you all is?

    I´m back from my rehab since wednesday afternoon , feeling better now , but there is no cure for me, just relief. I will not get rid of my back problems without an operation, but the risk of possible paralysis is very high because the operation is too close to the spinal cord. I will probably be retired in the next 6 months as I will probably no longer be able to work. Well...I could live with that too me ....😁

    Perhaps you were not aware. Maple syrup, disintegrator guns and hats all walk hand and hand with vinyl records. 😁 Honestly, how can you discuss one without the other? 😇

    come into my age and we can discuss where´s the best place for me to listen to some music

    Going on three ()(*&%$ing years now trying to make myself content with a couple hundred cd's instead of 700 - 800 ultrasonic cleaned, pristine and new LPs.


    What´s the problem JJ ? Thought that you rented a store where all your audio gear and vinyl was stored till you´ve moved into the new house. Was it all stolen from you or did you have to sell it?

    Went to the record fair.. didn't find what I was looking for. 


    There's 2 vendors I go to first.. but everything got to $$$$ for me !


    So I left empty handed 

    Same here in europe , the continuing actual hype of vinyl new or sec. hand has pushed prices into outrageously high regions, this is why I´ve decided, from case to case, to purchase a cd instead.
