    Rarely played, You mean, maybe. If you look up the LP on Discogs, no, you can get for a few euros. 

    But it' s OK by me. Got it for 5€ over at the Dual Forum.

    André , that´s super rare !!!!!!!!!! I do remember because it was content from the Vietnam War, but it was a quite confusing mega mix imo. Which Marantz CDP is that a 8004 SACD ?

     

     

     

     

     

     

    It's a DV7001. I got it because it can be DVD region-fee unlocked by just entering a code via remote control, no chipping or flashing needed. As a bonus it plays SACDs as well.

    My pressing of Born to Run also sounded terrible until I upgraded my Phono stage and got a tube amp... Then all of a sudden all the pieces started working together in a positive way. 

    Bought a bunch of old records lately, the Springsteen LP being one of them. I guess this warrants getting a "Knosti" LP washer next. I think "dirt" accounts for some of he "distortion" here.

    Is it the TT, is it the LP? Getting some distortion here and there...

    Should have read the notes on the cover... These are outtakes and tracks that didn't make it onto "Born to Run", so it's all kind of rough.

    Help me out here... I recently read something about Alan Parsons colaborating with ??? and then when the band quit, he started the Alan Parsons Project... But who was he working with initially?

    I know that he was a sound-engineer, for Pink Floyd and others....

  7. Haven't had the chance to hear a tangential yet... haven't heard how good my TTs are at their best yet, to tell the truth. 😄 I' m a little slow at getting things done right now...

    There is a small scandinavian TT Manufacturer called " Bergmann " Audio. Bergmann aims to develop air-bearing turntables and air-bearing tangential tone arms with the least amount of parts.

    I know it's surely a superb machine (must be for the $$$), but it looks too much like an industrial robot to me... I like my wooden plinths and metal arms and tables... It's just me rambelin´...

  9. Well, sort of. The 1218 is still on the work bench, I've been busy with other stuff. But i got a second Dual that was so cheap i couldn't pass it over. It's a 1214, that was a higher level entrance at the time.

    It plays well, it just won't turn off the motor once the record has played, have to pull the plug. So while the big brother is getting fixed, i can listen to stuff with this one and then fix this. Another plus, the mechanics on both are the same, so if i get lost i can compare to see what goes where.

    So, I'll be getting there, i guess.
