Starting a specific thread for Vinyl Record spinning 

 

My plan is to go through my record collection one by one and post as I go with a nice photo 

Hope all record ( darksiders ) will follow my lead and post on this new Vinyl / Record spinning thread 

 

So to kick it off I will post one of the very first albums I purchased - and I had to order it 

Since then I never got over King Crimson - still a top 3 favourite band 

 

Artist - King Crimson

Album - Young Persons Guide 

 

TT - Garrard 401

Stylus - Stanton 981 LZS 

Tonearm - Transfi Terminator 

Let the fun begin on the Darkside :love

I don't think we need a specific format spinning thread.

 

If you check the currently spinning thread most posters list what format they are playing at the time.

And the vast majority of posters in the other currently spinning threads are spinning records.

Paul, no offence was intended. But the spinning thread has been running fine for a number of years.

I'm sure you've seen it at some point?

I have participated in it and no offence taken 

However you will have also see other music genre spinning threads 

 

One of the reasons and the main inspiration I started this thread is the presentation format of the participants 

 

The idea came to me from some posters on Instagram where they photograph the album they are playing and the turntable it's played on 

It also invites discussion on SQ, Tone Arms, Cartridges ect 

 

This is the main difference of this thread to others

But many do that on the spinning thread already. It's not new. I believe it was @ferchersan that kicked off the trend of showing album and table pics.

 

Anyway...knock yourself out. :)

Although I've largely abandoned my Terminator arm, have you tried any of Vic's tweaks? Such as arm cable dressing, change in arm pivot point material, using rubber bands to suspend arm.

 

One tweak I see you don't have which I used was to put a protective cap on the end of the bottom of the arm. Too easy to scrape the record on it otherwise.

My Terminator arm and set up is superb and has no issues 

The setup of this arm was factored in when building the plinth I don't have any issues at all  

Did not know any issues about the pivot points that you mentioned but as an engineer I thought it best to enhance the connection point 

While putting it all together I applied a special coating that is used in string instrument building 

 

Always careful with record placement so no issues 

With wires I suppose I could have a look at what others are doing as I haven't visited the site for a long time

I gather the tweaks are all about trial and error, no criticism of the current set ups but only trying to improve.

 

I'm sure Vic would be receptive to any suggestions, ie your special coating, esp if it could be shared with other owners.

I am all for tweaks and improvements and don't mind taking things on board and sharing mine when people ask

 

Take note of the product number on this coating ( see photo )

I like the particular album I played earlier also because of Clifford Brown's contribution.

I have researched the Tomahawk tone arm updates on the Transfi site 

As of 2016 its recommended that the metal needle pivots be replaced with nylon  

Go back to when I was putting all the pieces together well before 2016 I forethought that the pivot area may need some treatment and came up with my method by applying a coating to the pivot points with a fully researched product that had specific properties for this application 

So in effect I have achieved the same result as the nylon needle pivot screws 

Probably why I haven't had any issues since day one ? 

 

The wire tidy method 

I did a similar thing with blue tac as an experiment so I may copy Vic's method by using some heat sink tube - but I won't be using silicone as its to messy but instead use the foam type double sided tape

I just used blutack too

 

Good thinking on the pivot point.. 

 

 

A tip

I also used the same coating to treat the underside of the alloy platter

This album is from an English band called New Order

They had very poor packaging - the outer cover is more like an inner sleeve 

 

On this particular album, only one track is recorded per side and both tracks have a hypnotic and very distinctive drum beat 

 

Artist  - New Order

Title - No Title see Track names 

Track 1 - The Beach 

Track 2 - Blue Monday

I believe that was a single as compared to an album.

 

Probably right - it's got that feel about it as a 12" Single

You mean from THE English band called New Order.  Just about the best band of the 1980's and came out of the sadness that was the end of Joy Division.

    Blue Monday is the biggest selling 12 inch single of all time and was only ever released as a single.   Even the album Power, Corruption & Lies used to have stickers saying - Does NOT Include Blue Monday.

 

  Awesome song and awesome band :thumb:

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Brisbane State: QLD Payment Method: Paypal Reason for selling: Surplus to needs Further information:
      Legendary vinyl playback at an affordable price. I purchased this HiFi icon second hand 10 years ago. Within a year I sourced its most highly recommended components from the era of manufacture.
       
      * Linn LP12 serial number 029326 manufactured between 1979 and 1981.
      * Ittok LVII tonearm with Linn Karma LOMC cartridge (replaced 5 years ago by Decibel HiFi).
      * Linn Cirkus sub-chasis and bearing (original chassis also supplied with the sale).
      * Linn Lingo Mk 1 external power supply (original internal power board and cable also supplied with the sale).
      * Linn Linto MC Phono Stage.
       
      Serviced and balanced 5 years ago by Decibel HiFi. 
       
      The photos show its excellent condition. There is one blemish in the plinth just to the right hand side of the tonearm which you can see in one photo. Apart from that it is close to as-new condition. 
      Due to the number of components, plus the fact I have no packaging for the Linto MC Phono Stage, Brisbane pickup only.

      Item Condition: LPs VG+ / Cover VG Shipping Options: Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Adelaide State: SA Payment Method: PayPal Reason for selling: Excess Further information:
      This is the very rare, limited edition, double vinyl, original issue. It was pressed in Holland, mastered direct to lacquer from the original analogue tapes by Doug Sax at TML.
       
      Mixed by James Guthrie, there are recognisable differences to the 2015 reissue.  
       
      Rating of LPs is VG+. They are shiny and visually in great shape with no obvious marks. They play very nicely but with a few ticks audible in quiet parts. This doesn't overpower, so are not heard in louder sections. The music sounds awesome. Special effects in Q sound work a treat.
       
      The outer sleeve is VG. A little wear at edges, small bend on one corner. The inners and booklet are in good shape except for bend in one corner and a few fingermarks on the glossy black surfaces. Still have the hype sticker but loose. No shrink wrap.
       
      This is the genuine article, purchased by me on release in 1992.
