Post A Photograph Of Your Turntable - Page 142

post #2116 of 3412
So happy to know that some here are DCD fans. Been one for years and was lucky to have bought the SACD box, once-upon-a-time available. Some single SACD titles, I believe, can still be purchased. Spectacular sound!

How well they manage to use reverb on their recordings without sounding ridiculous. The musicianship of all in the group is exemplary, of course.

Sorry to hear that.  I've not once had a problem and have bought dozens of records from them. Maybe it's a location thing.  I get em fast, too.

So far, I've been very satisfied with vinyl via SoundStageDirect.

I've been hung out to dry with Amazon buying limited quantity stuff.  Occasionally they can't fulfill it and eventually you get an email saying they are out of stock.  Otherwise, brilliant!

The trick with Amazon is to always order more than one LP so that they put it in a second box.  That being said, I always try to order from ED, SSD or MD because their shipping is just about bullet proof and Amazon's pricing can be out of sight on anything but mass market recordings.

 

And to keep this thread on track, a little TT / Tube pic:

I like the looks of that Marantz and Rogue.  Good looking system.

VPI Classic will be next, then I'll have a full "Made in USA" system except for the power tubes and interconnects.

I have one of those.  VPI Traveler, Grado Sonata1, Soundsmith MMP3 phono, Signal IC, DNA Sonett.  Then Sennheiser headphones.  Tubes are from various places.

 

The first four are made in New York.  Amp in Cali.

It's my second turntable system anchor and does sound good.   Nice little amp.  Headphones sound great out of it.

DCD In Concert showed up today.  I do like the extra padding via numerous wraps of bubble wrap and box Elusive Disc used.
