You act like I didn’t get the email from the band early yesterday morning.

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable. I've never seen Titanic OR XXXXXXXXX. Alexa is a stripper name.

I should’ve known better...rookie mistake.

New tonearm and cartridge on the way! Nothing wrong with my current arm which is a Jelco SA 750L (12”), I am simply curious what a different arm (Jelco TK 850L) can do. Based on a lot of research and conversations I’ve had with owners of the new arm, it should be a worthwhile upgrade. I’ve been extremely happy with my Hana SL cart so I am sticking with them and getting the ML, should have both sometime next week.

If anyone has interest in a well cared for Jelco SA 750L, drop me a line and we can discuss a very reasonable price.

I’m guessing it’ll give you about another 100L, but that’s just a guess.

With Summer keeping me busy, the posts have slowed but I managed to get some listening in recently. I have a Tidal trial until September so this is a great time to audition some music.

Breakwater-Breakwater / Breakwater-Splashdown Late 70’s R&B/funk, reminds me of The Brothers Johnson, The Commodores, and Earth, Wind, and Fire. Both albums are enjoyable and I am on the lookout for both.

The Raconteurs - Help Us Stranger This is their latest album and it’s good, solid, and unspectacular. Would pick it up if it were really cheap.

As for vinyl, I have 10 hours on the new cartridge/tonearm combo and first impressions are positive! Similar tone to the Hana SL but the ML expands on what the SL excels in, which in my experience is soundstage, detail, and tracking. Excited to keep listening to see how it settles in.
