Just the simple Latin use of the mark.

History

One theory of its origin is that it was a Latin exclamation of joy (io), written with the I above the o.[citation needed]

The exclamation mark was first introduced into English printing in the 15th century, and was called the "sign of admiration or exclamation"[1]or the "note of admiration" until the mid-17th century;[2]admiration referred to its Latin sense of wonderment.

The exclamation mark did not have its own dedicated key on standard manual typewriters before the 1970s. Instead, one typed a period, backspaced, and typed an apostrophe.[3] In the 1950s, secretarial dictation and typesetting manuals in America referred to the mark as "bang,"[4][5] perhaps from comic books where the ! appeared in dialogue balloons to represent a gun being fired,[6] although the nickname probably emerged from letterpress printing.[7] This bang usage is behind the titles of the interrobang, an uncommon typographic character, and a shebang line, a feature of Unix computer systems

Here are a couple of new photos of my Michell with the Thorens Stabiliser.

I love that Michell table. The spinning weights is so cool. It was (and still is) a consideration I looked at before I got the Amadeus. I'd get it in black though.

It's the perfect hypnotizing device, as if a regular TT isn't already.

The LP of stadium arcadium truly does sound freaking amazing

Edit: I seriously need one of those record stand things you've got MorbidToaster...

It's an easel. You can get that for cheap at art stores for small canvas or prints.

Getting ready for the arrival of my Headroom Micro Amp and for the fact that my girlfriend is going to be using my current preamp when that happens, I blew the dust off of something in the closet and put it to work as a phono preamplifier. As I remember correctly using it for input switching resulted in some awfully hallow/screechy sound. Using it solely as a phono stage however is yielding some interesting results. It's a $50 TC-754. It's not so wildly underpriced for the setup I'm sticking it into seeing as I'm only using a Gemini direct-drive w/ a Grado Green attached. It's much brighter than the ART DJpre or the onboard stage in my preamp. This is good because I had been kind of feeling down thinking that the Grado Green rolled off the highs way too much. So far I'm kind of happy but it's only been a day since I plugged it in. I'll get back to this in a week or so to say whether or not I still like it. Here's a picture from Amazon.

Nice RX2 beerchug.gif It's a very fine sounding table. Mine sadly has issues with the cueing/return mechanism (sometimes it works, sometimes the tonearm just returns without playing).

post #1530 of 3326

Thanks calipilot227, I use the RX2 for albums that are not quite good enough for the Michell.


The Michell can be too revealing on non-superior vinyl, especially with the Mark Levinson Carnegie One cartridge.


The B&O smooths out the lesser quality vinyl and makes them quite listenable.  


Plus, it also has the built in 45 adapter.

 

Major plus!
