Can anyone recommend where to buy larger sleeves that will fit these records?
I'm in the same boat. I think these are probably the only option. They're going to likely be much too wide for the TP sets, but better than no sleeve at all. I'll probably order them... eventually. I have a few box sets that need sleeves anyway.

Interesting. I believe mine has a belt as I was reading some things about it and someone had the problem of the belt coming off and had to put it back in place - a huge pain in the ass.

Since Orbit hasn't shipped my turntable out yet I went ahead and purchased the cork mat and aluminum 45 RPM adapter.

This is what I use and they work great. Checkout through Amazon too which is handy.

Got one as well. I have an original pressing, which has seen better days. Glad to finally have a repress of this at least and don't have much heartache paying a premium for this one.

I grabbed a deluxe but, man, these guys are slipping. The heads up for subs came moments before the sale, and the prices are just stupid. And the sub discount is now only 10%. Kinda lame but then that's what every single company does once they get popular.

I think they just fucked up with this one. They underestimated the "want" factor by fans. Has it ever happened like this before? I don't remember.

I really wanted the deluxe edition but it sold out as I was about to check out. Really bummed. I've been waiting for someone to reissue this for a while and was prepared to pay for a deluxe edition if there was one. I'm not supporting scalpers though.

Waxwork posted on their FB saying that for those that didn't get one there would be a re-press later this year.

See, I do not remotely understand how you can underestimate the "want factor" for the greatest horror film of all time, scored by the Maestro.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Anyone else's copy of Fire Walk With Me sound like crackly ass? I could live without the fancy colored vinyl if they'd just get it to sound clean.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

I ran my through my record cleaner and side A still sounds awful. Side B doesn't sound great either. Side C is alright, and side D is so-so. I'll probably ask for a replacement.

Looks like Waxwork Records is doing the pre-order for The Thing's second pressing tonight at midnight CST.

Yep, just like the series soundtrack. I doubt a replacement will do much good.

I couldn't resist the deluxe, and I grabbed a black vinyl copy of The Warriors soundtrack too.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Hey guys--I've been having an issue and have been trying to figure it out for a week or two, but cannot diagnose or fix it. Any help would be great. I'll briefly give some background, and the rest will just be a list of things I tried to do to fix it but weren't successful attempts.

WHAT I HAVE

I have the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon, a Marantz PM5004 integrated amp, and a Schitt Mani phono stage. I also have a Schitt MODI DAC for streaming music, as well.

THE PROBLEM

Iíve had the Pro-Ject over two years. But two weeks ago, when getting ready to play a record, I turned the volume up about 25-30% and I could hear something that sounded like white noise (think ďPoltergeistĒ)ówith a bit of a very faint hum noise being heard, too. The white noise/hiss was far more prominent and fairly loud, actually.

I also have my computer plugged into a Schitt MODI, and this DAC is plugged into the Marantz amp (this is to play streaming music through the ďCDĒ input). When I switch the input to CD, thereís absolutely no white noise. Switch back to AUX input for my Pro-Ject turntableówhite noise is back.

MY ATTEMPTS TO FIX THE ISSUE

So hereís a list of things Iíve done to troubleshoot the problem.

-Iíve tried unplugging the turntable while leaving the rest of the cables and ground wire connectedódidnít work.

-Iíve tried disconnecting and reconnecting the ground wires multiple timesódidnít work.

-Iíve tried removing the Schitt Mani phono stage entirely and instead connecting directly from the turntable to the amp. I connected the ground wire to the amp and the RCA cables to the PHONO input. I had to turn the volume up about 75% to hear the white noise (I presume because I have better gain control on the Schitt Mani as its a better phono stage)óbut that didnít work. Still heard the white noise.

-Iíve tried disconnecting all the components and reconnecting them againódidnít work.

-Iíve tried removing certain things that may be causing interference, like a dimmer light next to the turntable (which has always been there since I got the turntable two years ago, by the way)ódidnít work.

-Iíve tried removing some of the non-essential components to test things, like the DAC for instanceódidnít work.

-Iíve tried changing up the RCA wires (more like exchanging ones that were connected to one component and trying to move them around to connect to other components instead)ódidnít work.

-Then, I decided maybe itís the room Iím in. So I took the Pro-Ject Debut Carbon and Schitt Mani downstairs. Found a separate Onkyo amp. Found separate speakers. Found separate speaker wire. Hooked it all upódidnít work, still got white noise.

-While still downstairs, I then removed the Schitt Mani (disconnected it from the wall) and just directly connected the turntable to the Onkyo amp (including grounding)ódidnít work.

-Then, I decided, what if I try another turntable entirely? I have a old Technics turntable from the 70s that doesnít even operate anymore. But it has its own ground wire and RCA cables built into the turntable. So, I went back upstairs to my normal listening room where my Pro-Ject Debt Carbon normally sits. I removed the Pro-Ject and I hooked the Technics up to both the Marantz amp and the Schitt Maniódidnít work, still white noise.

-I then unplugged the Technics turntable while still having all the other cables and ground wire connectedódidnít work, still heard it just the same as I was hearing it with the Pro-Ject.

-I then directly connected the Technics turntable to the Marantz amp, removing the Schitt Mani from the equation entirelyódidnít work.

--

If anyone has any thoughts or advice on this crazy situation, that'd be great.

Re: The VINYL Thread!

Ok so..... if its a preorder..... when do I get charged?



fuck it.... I had to order it. I tried posting here the other day that I wanted this (lost reception) and was pissed I missed, but grateful to save money.

Now I ordered it and the Warriors (been dying for it and eyeballing colored for awhile but thats around $80 - so didnt want to rush)
