The power of shock value, gotta love it. Someone should remind them it's just rock 'n roll. Remember 40 years ago? It's not like something really obscene, like a 22 yr old Elvis shakin' his hips.
They will always be the most noisy when it's new (thus, give it like 20 hour for wearing parts to mechanically break-in). Either that or it's no good and about to die - in which case it will get louder and louder. It shouldn't be audible, I listen really quiet too sometimes, and my cheapo Yamaha 5 disc thing is only heard when I put my ear 10 cm from the tray. Give it some time, and if it's still like that, try to return it.
I was browsing a local record store, and in the new arrivals stack, I see this: and on the back was this: (without the added flashing of course) Bobby Conn: Rise Up! After 3 listens I'm enjoying it so much that I'm starting to wonder if there are subliminal satanic messages in there. I really lucked out and discovered a new favourite artist. Anyone else take a chance? How did it turn out?
Minya that was hillarious.. It made me want to slit my wrists ova & ova & ova
I think it would depend from player to player... most drive mechanisms will last for well over 10,000 hours, I think MTF is like 50,000 for a typical player (like, over 5 years of continuous use). By the time it wears out, you'll have wanted to upgrade to another one anyway if you're a person that goes on here at all!
My fill of SR-125 has left me hungry for RS-1's... but only after I build my RA-1 clone.
man, that kid is going to get his _ss rebooted all through school...
Great! Glad to hear you're enjoying it.. the NAD stuff is nice...
Out Hud - STREET DAD Ok, so again, I only had the MP3 to compare to this LP. Somehow I think the high frequencies are rolled off, but they are at least very tame. Upon first removing it from it's sleave, I saw all these light scuffs all over the vinyl. Luckily, these are pretty much inaudible and just surface. The bass on it is not as tight as the MP3 samples I had heard (again @ 192k). Warpage is fairly low, and it's about a regular 150g pressing. Surface...
In the entry level, some of the nice ones on the used market: Musical Fidelity X-DAC Monarchy 18B MSB Link Dac III Adcom GDA-600 All of these can be had for around $200... I've got the Adcom and am happy with it overall... but I really think digital technology has come a long way since '94. The level of detail retrieval and soundstage width isn't up to what I hear in my analog system.
