Here are some pics of my VPI Scoutmaster set up - was messing with a picture editing app on the phone :)

 

I can't tell if that's a VERY dirty record, or just the way the photo was edited. Looks pretty cool nevertheless.

It's the effect from the app :)

So I was clearing out the garage the other day and came upon my uncles old box of records which he had left there a few years back, a few records had been water damaged(mostly just the sleeves) so i decided i would keep them in a nice place in my closet to protect them even though i didn't have a player.  As i started removing records from the box, and lo, and behold.

There was an old Sanyo TP- 1020 at the bottom. Thought that it must have been broken because my uncle had been asking me if i had a record player earlier that year.  Got it all hooked up, turned it on and ran a record through it, and damn did it sound nice.  Getting a record brush and a new needle later, probably replace all the caps. 

The records on the top shelf are the ones that were in the box are are quite a mix of genres with some great Rock or Classical albums here and there. The ones on the bottom shelf is a well cared for set of "The Greatest Jazz Recordings of All Time" Institute Of Jazz Studies Official Archive Collection.  Great records. 

TL;DR: Lucky, lucky day.

Great story Cali, I love it when old stuff gets a new life.

Is there a barn or shed on the property? Quick, go out there - there's probably an old Porsche 356 or AC Cobra buried under a bale of hay!

Was that special app called "add dust app"
bad combination with a record player IMHO.

I once found about 300 lp's dumped on the street with the trash. Most were in pretty good state. But that was 15y ago...

Yeah, those photos made your turntable and record look like they came out of Berlin c. 1945

 

EDIT: Okay maybe not THAT bad.

That GT40 seems like an amazing little package, how do you like it?

Edit: can't begin to describe how much better the stock Ortofon cartridge is on this thing than the awful awful p-mount AT cartridge on the Technics table I was using previously. That thing must have been shredding the grooves. The ortofon glides so smoothly in the grooves that there is hardly any hiss or pop in the playback at all. Very very pleased with my purchase!

Just be careful if you change the overall height of the vinyl surface with a new mat that you adjust the vertical tracking angle of the arm to compensate.  Some cartridges are picky about VTA and others are not so much, but any large change could change the sound quite dramatically.

I just picked up the new In Motion Part 1 double LP. According to the website its the first album in a series, i'm excited. The vinyl releases always sell out so quickly.

Nice! That's some crazy isolation platform. Who makes that?

post #690 of 3731

That's a custom isolation platform designed by me, and manufactured by Timbernation.
