Re: Inner sleeves for vinyl LPs

I thought i'd add this to this thread
where do people get their distilled water from to use for cleaning machines, all i can find in local shops is "de-ionised", not quite the same thing.
it is available on line, but not cheaply because of postage costs

Re: when do we have the 2017 ins and out thread?

cheaper to get some anthem M1s Having now spent a week with the M1s on loan, I've decided they're not for me. They are dramatic and impressive. But I found them harsh in places and everything seemed a bit overblown; out of balance. Not good with classical. Maybe just me/my system. Back to the NCore...

Re: Inner sleeves for vinyl LPs

the paper is not quite as thick as the ones that robert recommended, which i bought, but they are quite close to being very similar. I've just bought some, and will be buying more, i'm hoping to keep the cost down https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F290...

Re: Which speakers - PMC or B&W?

Thanks everybody for your replies, gives me a lot to think about. I currently have the speakers bi-wired as that was a huge improvement over single. One set of cables have no name on them. I got them from Sevenoaks a few years back. I can only describe them as beige colour rubber, very flexible and...

Compare with SanDisk who I always use but at this price I'd go for it.

Think of getting a couple for a backup copy.

Re: Which speakers - PMC or B&W?

I would do something else first. Id get another x-power, or swop for a pair of mono x. Why? Speakers appear to be the way to get a different sound signature. You'd need to know whether you like either of the sound signatures of these two speakers. To be sure you need to do alot of listening, ideally...

AT95e cartridge with paratrace 95P stylus

short review Having listened to 20 albums all the way through I think I can say this is a quite big jump from the elys2 cartridge i've had for 4 years. But it has a very different sound to the elys2. initially I thought, where is the bass, but having gone near the speakers it was apparent that the d...
