Re: The VINYL Thread!

Aw, fuck, fuckety, fuck fuck!

I was dusting my turntable (it gets extra dusty from brushing off the dust on the records), and the edge of the paper towel caught the needle, bending the stylus.

It was a fairly new one too, that had just been broken in. It still "works", but it'll damage records if I use it much, so I guess I gotta buy a new one. At least Fry's has them in stock at their stores, and cheaper than amazon. (that's not a plug, I actually hate going to Fry's - it's a pain in my ass!)

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Pre-ordered this on vinyl. The band consists of 3 Mexican sisters -- their first non-cover-original record:



Their Enter Sandman clip went viral a couple of years ago:




They posted a new cover of Atlas Rise a couple of days ago and they are making tracks!




I definitely gotta support these gals.

https://www.thewarningband.com/

The vinyl was 35$ shipped from Mexico and should be here at the end of the month.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I hit a vinyl record show yesterday, first time I checked one of these out, they are great fun. Found a few gems, and picked up fear of music for my talking heads collection. Along with about 30 other records. Was interesting to see what folks had in there $1 and $2 bins, found a few gems, and fave artiists.

Anyway, heres a couple of links to check out one in your neck of the woods...

Seriously though, when you do eventually upgrade, you'll wonder why you waited so long.
Interesting! Something new to learn about!

Thats awesome about the Uturn weight. I am really excited to get one and cannot wait..... but my wallet has to lol.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Here's a list of releases for the next RSD for Europe.

One of the weakest RSDs I've seen yet (for me EU RSD tends to have more interesting releases than US) - the mini-RSD black Friday was way better than this one.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I saw a few things that caught my eye. Like the Hawkwinds and Animals. But I cant believe these slackers still cant release the USA RSD list. Lame

Re: The VINYL Thread!

You can classify this under thinking out loud, but today was a slow day and I crunched some numbers and realized that I can get the Uturn with Ortofon OM 5E cartridge, machined acrylic platter, and external pluto from AMAZON for $409

If I order from UTurn themselves, the same set up after shipping is $403.

I have an Amazon CC, can get points, and I just cashed in my rewards Debit Card to get a $200 GC from Amazon..... well shit.....

Go forth and wreak havoc. What's the shipping time frame on the Amazon one? If you order it from UTurn it will be delivered in 2 weeks.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Of my wife? keep trying buddy!

So was gonna do the order but decided to read the q&a and this item does not ship from uturn (so already built) but read the tone arm is the old version, not the new OA2 Arm.

What ya'll know about arm difference? It's got me second guessing buying and the only way I can upgrade now is using the gift cards

Ah, that changes things. They revised the tone arm and fixed the anti-skating problem it was having from the first wave of turntables. I guess if you want the latest you'll have to order direct OR head over to your nearest Crate & Barrel store. They are the exclusive carrier of UTurn.

Yea man, it's kind of a deal breaker. I read the site and the things they updated. A lot of people seem to want to upgrade to the new arm so it should be the way to go.

Damn, I was so excited! Lol

We're you billed when you ordered or when it shipped?

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Question for you guys who ordered the Kinks (Supermallet & slop101 - Im looking in your direction).

I was at a record store and picked up 2 of the RSD EP releases and LOVED them! Now I want to get the rest of the RSD releases (which is what, 9 more, ugh) but I know you guys got that box set. Is a lot of the material re hashed? If its like the old days I figure the EPs later got combined into an LP - so I would like to get some more of their stuff, but curious what route I should take. I figure I got $100 to spend on the other EPs I dont have whereas the box is $150.

And Supermallet, you mentioned getting your Warriors soundtrack from WW. Did you preorder The Thing for the May shipment and they sent it early or did you get them both together?

Thanks guys!

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I don't know what you mean by "rehashed". I'm not familiar with what is on those EPs. The box-set is just the proper albums as they were originally released, remastered and in mono.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Basically a repeat of all the same songs that are on the EPs. A lot of bands, like the Animals released 7" EPs and when started hitting it big in America and such, those songs got released and EPs were combined to full LPs. At this point before buying all the 7" EPs, maybe its wiser to spend the money on the box set if it contains all the same songs is what I was wondering

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Yeah, I don't know what's on the EPs versus the albums to be honest. I'm sure there is some overlap and some unique EP tracks.

As for The Warriors, I ordered it when I pre-ordered The Thing and they sent The Warriors immediately. Still waiting on The Thing.
