    Right, looks like I should get some tools such as a digital scale for measuring tracking weight and other tools I'll need to have as well. I'll find out soon enough. I ordered a shiit mani preamp which I am very stoked about. Supposed to be a great match for the plug n spin kit i'm getting.

    Your Turntable

    I've used a turntable a long time but that doesn't mean that I can do all the adjustments that can be done. I have a lot to learn. As long as it's not too complicated switching plug n spin kits (headshell, cartridge, stylus, etc.) I will be cool, but if it's really too long and drawn out of a process it may discourage me, I know patience is a virtue with stuff like this. You have to align it (the stylus, cartridge, etc.), do sound tests, etc. Still waiting for my nagaoka mp-110h to arrive.

    If I spent $1600 on a turntable I'm not sure I would want to have some place make all these adjustments to my new turntable right out of the box. Actually they are very important adjustments but do they really need to be done on a new turntable? I guess so. Actually I want to find a reliable place that does this kind of work just in case I am over my head when I try to install my new plug n spin kit.

    Jimmy Page and the XYZ tapes

    Drummer Alan White Reflects on his Years Playing With John Lennon and Yes White reveals that Yes are touring this summer, and that the unreleased XYZ sessions with Jimmy Page might come out. https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/drummer-alan-white-interview-yes-john-lennon-804823/
  12. One of my all time favorites from him too, and what an absolutely great live show he and his band put on that tour! I think it's super cool that the artwork for F.O.N. will be updated to reflect today's times! Listening to my 1993 vinyl and I think it sounds excellent. As to whether a vinyl will sound quieter than most albums that may happen as well as other quality issues. Would love to see a F.O.N.box set or double vinyl with bonus tracks included.
  13. Robert Plant announced last week that he will release a new limited edition vinyl remaster of his 1993 solo album "Fate of Nations" for Record Store Day on April 13. The new remaster of the album will be limited to 6,000 copies worldwide and will be pressed on 180g vinyl. The US Record Store Day website lists just 1,000 copies being made available there. The listing for the release on the official UK Record Store Day website gives more information about the albums packaging: "This special limited edition 180g black vinyl of Fate of Nations is being reissued on Robert Plant's own record label Es Paranza around Earth Day. All profits from the sale of this record will be given to Robert Plant's nominated Environmental charity. The album title and the artwork of the original 1993 is focused on the impacts of geo-politics and globalization on the earth/Robet's environmental concerns. The outer sleeve will be high end matt soft pack, whilst the inner sleeve will be printed on ethically sourced material and feature updated artwork (Environmental facts from 1993 compared to today's data). This album has not been available on vinyl for 30 years (since the 90's)." http://ledzepnews.com/2019/03/04/robert-plant-will-release-a-limited-edition-version-of-fate-of-nations-for-record-store-day/

    I hope I got good advice from turntableneedles dot com about a better plug n spin kit for my turntable. It recommended a Nagaoka plug n spin kit, so I ordered one. Now balancing it out with my turntable is going to be another thing, hopefully it's not too difficult.

    Looks like tickets are selling absolutely piss poorly in many markets. I hope shows don't get cancelled.

    KISS

    I wasn't really trying to notice it, I think the evening I saw them he was doing a better job covering it up. But it's known he has been running click tracks to cover his voice, I've been trying not to let all the chatter over it affect my last chance seeing these guys who have given so much to the very end...LONG LIVE KISS!

    KISS

    My seat was very close to the right of the soundboard. I could clearly see Shannon Tweed hanging out in the soundboard area, she still looks great as ever. Made my evening getting a little eye contact with Paul Stanley when he went into the audience to the smaller prop (stage) right behind the soundboard during "Love Gun", I was very close to him at that point and I was cheering my head off! Was great! A lot is happening on/around the stage and I missed Gene Simmons and Tommy Thayer flying right above me near the very end of the show. I think I was still looking at Paul Stanley behind me. If you're not paying attention, you might miss them flying right above you like I did, but it was great!

    Which country makes the best turntable cartridges? Is it Japan? Or Germany?

    I'm looking for a good plug n spin kit that's compatible with my s-shaped tonearm . The prices are all over the place and into the thousands and what a great thing that is. For the love of sound! It all comes down to what you can afford though. I'm due for an upgrade. I guess the more you spend the better. I hope I can get something decent around $200. Hope I don't end up with something that sounds like my old childhood fisher price turntable, well actually I liked my childhood fisher price turntable so scratch that. The VM540ML goes for about $289 and is demonstrated here and sounds excellent.

    I know modern good quality turntables get pretty expensive and it can be discouraging. It seems like you have to spend over a grand to get a turntable that is comparable in sound with the old good turntables that were a fraction of the price of these newer turntables. I stick with my old school Realistic LAB-420 turntable and the sound is imo just as good or better than most of the comparably priced modern usb turntables currently on the market. My turntable does require a separate preamp and there are some good phono preamps out there and I went with one that I've heard good reviews about, the Shiit Mani preamp. Is anyone still using a turntable with a preamp and if so, what kind of phono preamp do you use? Or is there any usb turntable users out there?
