I'm presuming you know about this shite - i didn't, and it took me a while to figure it out
Yup I've been buying alot more CDs recently, mainly because 1) they are so much cheaper the records right now 2) postage is generally pretty reasonable (so many records on Bandcamp end up being like 35 quid incl postage- fuck that) and 3) I find vinyl completely unsuited to longer, non song-based pieces of music that could really do without interruption every 15 minutes. Also getting back into cassettes quite a bit- with a good machine they sound great...I wouldn't be without a CD player. Its a great format IMHO, much maligned. When mastered right they can sound as good as any record, with none of the hassle.
Oh my, that looks lovely. Where'd you get it, how much?
Which was the old Pro-Ject you had?Replacing the multi award winning and five times What Hi-Fi? Product of the Year (RP3) was never going to be an easy task. It took our team of designers headed up by Rega's Roy Gandy, two years to develop the all new 'Planar 3' following the biggest re-design of the iconic 'Three' model ever seen.www.savins.ie
I sold my project for €70
Same for myself. My old record player sounded so shitty so it's nice to hear all the records Id bought over the last few years properly. Plus I have more time to now because of working from homeAnd it has turned out perfectly fine too Moose. Loving spinning albums I had neglected for years the last few weeks
It comes with a handy little cartridge alignment protractor . You put the needle on the cross and peer through the two horizontal gaps on the top of the needle thing to check if things are aligned with the horizontal lines on the card but unfortunately the cartridge itself blocks you from seeing if it is ok or not.My new record player is arriving tomorrow
wow, that must be as minimal as it gets. 'utilitarian' doesn't even come close.
remember watching this a few years ago too - tech moan is cool (see video at top of this page)Cheers Pete. Yeah, only recently realised that myself to be honest. They fit fine into the back of my amp
i'm almost tempted... almost.wow, that must be as minimal as it gets. 'utilitarian' doesn't even come close.
Edit: anyone hazard a guess at how much the components cost ?
