My grandma had one when we were kids, it was fun. Definitely one of the coolest toys ever made. ;)

I really enjoyed it. Psyched for a new full album.

Is it wrong that this post came immediately after a very impressive speaker/dac setup and I'm a little more giggly over the Fisher Price? cool.gif

 

I swear, I totally want someone to run a DBT with a high end turntable vs the FP turntable just for laughs. (does that thing even have outputs?)

:). I'm not sure why it's so blurry / grainy. Think I left it on the macro setting but oh well, too lazy to re-do.

I like how your escape key is just some random orange.

Depends on whether the kids' or dad's records got played on it.

Nope! That'd be an interesting hack. I wonder if the amp circuit even does RIAA eq.

While we're on the subject of vinyl, can someone give me a brief overview as to WHY a heavier disc sounds better? I know it does, I just want to know WHY.

Less entropy?

post #12355 of 20178

If I was to venture a guess, and it's just a guess, it may be because it is less prone to vibration and resonance.

It doesn't. The weight of the vinyl itself has nothing to do with it.

 

In the earlier days of thicker records the 180g stuff was often warped and generally crap. This is no longer true and for the most part the shoe is on the other foot. 180g records can generally trusted to be less warped than lighter stuff. Warps can effect SQ, but that's more the pressing process than the actual weight.

 

There's a discussion going on Steve Hoffman forums right now about the myth of 180g 'Audiophile vinyl'. They're saying that they'd gladly shave $10 or so off LPs and take a standard weight disc. I agree. I'd rather have more music than thicker music.

 

EDIT: If you find a thicker disc sounds better it's probably because the master is better.

Ah, thanks MT. Yeah, all the heavy discs i have (Kind of Blue, Etc..) are labeled with "180g audiophile vinyl", so I was wondering why.

post #12358 of 20178

I think the buzzword you SHOULD look for though is 'Virgin vinyl'. That will make a difference.

You can Google search your face off about that subject.  One point that kind of stuck out for me was that a thicker record will be less prone to warping over time, and you'll get a less distorted sound as the years go by.  But that's assuming a thin record will warp more easily over time.

 

In the audiophile world heavier is always better.  Heavier amps, heavier racks, heavier speakers, heavier platters, heavier... records.
