I have quite a big collection of vinyl. I haven't played any of it for years. There's quite a few picture discs and numbered limited editions. I might have look and see if any of it is worth any money.
Id anyone is interested documentary on DJ Derek . For those that don't know he was a little white man who lived in the Jamaican area of Bristol and grew to love all sorts of Reggae etc . He made a great contribution to music .
After going missing months ago they have found a body a few days ago which is most likely him . It really is so sad .
The documnetary is well worth a watch even if its not your sort of thing , its just a man who love music .
Been through some 60's 70's stuff, quads mainly, bit of leak.
Makes you realise things havent really improves since then.
Anyone who thinks anything digital sounds better than vinyl has not heard vinyl played properly
Admittedly it costs lots of money to get it playing right!
Got a leak stereo 30 and matching tuner here, I reckon it'll pair nicely with a set of Celestion Dittons I have as well. :-)
As I say, pics incoming.
My Dad is nursing an Armstrong 421 back to full health after I blew it up in about 1992.....it turned up in a recent house move ( Dad still isn't amused ) - BUT its so beautifully hand made, with the earliest pull out circuit boards I've seen.
My diy tannoys and early stages of my siy air bearing tonearm. Bolted to a bit of ply and the guts of a technics sl150. SME I bought cheap, god knows why there so popular! Rebuilt it, used it for an hour or so then sold it. Pivoting tonearms are rubbish Lol.
I'm using it to create a super low mass direct drive TT.
I always used to use idler drive turntables with high mass plinths. I then got a job at rega and chatting with the bosses developing new top secret stuff I got tempted to go the light weight low energy storage route. I don't like belt drive though so I'm using direct drive. Cant go light weight with idler drive as there is too much energy to disipate.
Sorry to mildly hijack the thread a little, but I've just "inherited" a bunch of mid-high end 1980s hifi: big ar*e Kef speakers, Pioneer amps, and a few other bits (tuner, turntable) I can't recall at the moment.
Other than wacking it on eBay is there any shops/dealers who would buy it? Unfortunately I haven't got a lot of the leads so difficult to tell if it still works - it has been in a loft for the last couple of years, but was being used before that.
