  I feel like a lot of new vinyl releases have fallen victim to the loudness wars but I as for surface noise, I feel there's no difference between new releases and well cleaned vintage records. I love Arcade Fire but The Suburbs just sounds so compressed, even on vinyl. The Black Key's Brothers, on the other hand, sounds magnificent. I guess it's really down to the mastering!   Also, I'm an avid user of wood glue to clean stubborn records. It really works and sounds as...
  Crazy tonearm! Could you tell us more about it? How's it compare to the stock RB303?
