Much better way of protesting

It made them money...

instead of costing others their life's worth

That's pretty nice, that band could sing too! Except they had something stuck in their throats and made a funny noise a few times:lol:

It's got Find Somebody to Love and White Rabbit...

Sounds alright by me.

I also have a white rabbit. The album is called " white rabbit " from George Benson and was released in 1979 on the CTI label (USA) with the musicians Airto Moreira, Herbie Hancock, Earl Klugh, Jay Berliner, Billy Cobham and Ron Carter. It is very rare.

inspired by John Tropea's " short trip to space " thanks to @Full Range, I also listened to the legendary band " MFSB ". The album " Mysteries of the world " -the sound of philadelpiha- from 1980 is a classic of Jazz Funk.

Do you still have rubber mats on the turntables?

 

I replaced my original Micro Seiki platter rubber mat years ago. The goal was to optimize the pickup's scanning behavior. Then I installed a " Transrotor " carbonacrylate plate in combination with a leather mat. The result was an audible improvement in the richness of detail when listening to a record. But this only works with tonearms with the possibility of vertical tracking angle, because then you have to align the tonearm parallel to the turntable, depending on the thickness of the support. I can highly recommend this "fine tuning". These are not the giant leaps of a sound improvement but, with records that you know very well, you can hear an improved reproduction quality. And these tuning measures are really not expensive. Therefore it is worth to take a few $ for it in the hand. There are different types of turntable mats, such as cork, carbon, felt and others. Which of these fits which turntable concept depends on the technical construction of the turntable. For Thorens or Linn concepts the cork mats fit very well, for turntables with a lot of metal the carbon / leather versions fit very well. This has nothing to do with " VOODOO ", I only describe my individual experiences from over 40 years of listening to records and I didn't want to withhold this information from you.

 

Carbonacrylat Mat :

and here with the leather mat over the carbonacrylat mat.

My new one came with a bs felt mat. Geeze if it's supposed to be a decent audiophile tt seems they would use a mat that did not facilitate static!!!

Picked up a leather one pretty soon after and @MicroMara it does work with other practices to help inhibit static.

 

And that term decoupling comes to mind, even directly under the vinyl it can play a part can't it?

 

searched this thread and found that mat I got from amazon. Here is their site:

Yes, it is about decoupling the record from the turntable and the associated resonance reduction at the pickup. All in all, the pickup is more precise and therefore more detailed in the sampling. It's fine that you don't have a rubber mat on your Pro-Ject. After all, you want to get the most out of your components and for me, this has nothing to do with " audiophile snobbery. Also the static charge of a record ( crackling ) is minimized.

I'm glad I got mine when I did the price has doubled since pro-ject bought them out. 

amazon reviewers there sounded like it wasn't even smooth / more smooth suede like I managed to get from that small shop!

:blush:

YES, you're right. Three.

 

Dude, I've got so many new to me that I haven't even listened to them all!

Toybox is full of them, working on a package for someone and the record store finally re-opened. One customer inside at a time, and they have to pay some bills before they can think about buying records again!
