    Re: Whats spinning on your Turntable tonite?

    Not really on topic, but sorta! Bought a CD today, it's an accoustic studio set by my favortie band and in the liner notes it says that all the recordings were done without using digital processing/etc so it's all there... but then they print it onto CDs and I can't find the vinyl of it ANYWHERE. This is going to bug me until I find one, or have to physically take a copy of their recording and make my own pressing of these records because this needs to be heard on vinyl, I must hear it the way they recorded it. That or kidnap the band and have them play for me whenever I want... hmm

    Anyway, sorry to hijack the thread!

    The vacuum pump on my ET2 is flakey these days.....but I trying to spin up Peter Schilling's "Major Tom (Coming Home)" from the Error in the System LP.

    If I have any success, I'll then be trying out some stuff from A Flock Of Seagulls......

    I was too cheap to buy a WISA - instead opting for a vacuum pump I picked up from a medical supplies recycler. I had to devise a "leak" using cotton to plug the hole so I would not be dead heading the pump into the ET. I then used 100 feet of plastic vacuum line to filter out the pulses....It's working fine now - 'guess I just need to use it more often!

    Re: Whats spinning on your Turntable tonite?

    Wow...100 feet. I kep having issues and thought somehow my 25ft was doing something weird...so I shortened the length to maybe 7 and used a resevoir tank to smooth it out. I get about 3psi with both pumps and it works great. I keep everything in box (check out the link in My System), can't hear it at all amazingly. Maybe once we move I'll add some line and stick the pumps next to the folding farm in a closet.

    oh yeah the problem turned out to be winter...ambient temps were lower and air had more static...all that bad crap that comes with winter, even though the house is warm, effected the armk and it just kept "sticking".....

    Ohhhh yes! Those audiophile pressings do make the system shine. But they spoiled me so badly that I found myself having to walk away from the system for a week [or so] just to be able to tolerate the regular pressings!!! sheesh! Somethings about that hobby will just have you chasing your tail!!!

    Just recieved 10 more from Adam's audio emporium in Wisconsin. I think the total was $33. Including Warren Zevon's Excitable Boy. So you know what is on my table tonite!

    I have always love vinyl, but you have helped rekindle that love. And when it is available so reasonabley, how can I resist it?
