Vinyl - Record Spinning

Recommended Posts

Starting an analogue listening thread 

Because Klipsch and records go hand in hand I thought it would be appropriate for a dedicated record spinning thread 

 

Time permitting I will work through my record collection one by one and post as I go with a nice photo 

Hope all record ( darksiders ) tragic's will follow my lead and post on this new Vinyl / Record spinning thread 

 

So to kick it off I will post one of the very first albums I purchased - and I had to order it 

 

Artist - King Crimson

Album - Young Persons Guide 

 

TT - Garrard 401

Stylus - Stanton 981 LZS 

Tonearm - Transfi Terminator 

Let the fun begin on the Darkside :love

Love the garrad...

Did you do all the modifications to the tone arm yourself? How loud is the pump?

 Try to stage an album cover in front of your gorgeous speakers.  You know I've always lusted over them:rolleyes:

As an engineer I like to get my hands working 

I built the plinth and referbished the Garrard and fitted the tone arm 

The air pump has also been modified and is very quiet but I will place it into a sound insulated box

Carl you're a trouble maker.  Let my bud from down under have his vinyl only thread.  Go mash another toe or something.

Besides his speakers are prettier than you are:rolleyes:

I don't know there 'Heel. I had thought Carl was a good lookin' bartender until his all too frequent and blatant display of toes and feets. And for those foo-paahs his ranking had to be lowered, way low, matter of fact he has been kicked (get it, kicked - feet) out of any contention for Best Looking Bartender with Ugly Feet rankings. Should have left well enough alone, Carl.

I spin vinyl in the RTM thread, as well as play CDs, digital music files, stream Pandora, and even play a cassette tape now and then.. :D

I promise I'll wear sneakers in Hope unless it grows back really gnarly.  If that happens I'll have on sandals all weekend.

Another promise, please. No resting the "ugly" foot on chairs, tables or counter tops. If you insist I'm sure Rodney has a place in the pasture where animals rest their wounded hooves. Just follow the arrows to the back 40. Thanks for the consideration.

The RTM thread is only about one thing, the music.  How you enjoy it, vinyl, CD's, digital, etc. does not matter and all are welcome!

Gentlemen 

It's a Vinyl Spinning thread because not all music is available in other formats 

 

Not only do we like to see the record spinning around it's also normal to sit and listen to the record from start to finish without the constant - stop, start, change track with the remote control ( you all know what I mean ) 

 

Anyway next spinning session I have stuck with King Crimson 

For @Tarheel a special photo

 

Artist - King Crimson 

Album - In The Court Of The Crimson King
