  1. Just what the world needs right now, another Kanye West album.
  2. Or perhaps just transferred to an alternative universe. Keith Richards called him the Salvador Dali of music. I considered him a personal friend. 9.5 min of swirly psychedelic reggae from the master...
  3. Up and Bangin' with Chilli It should be the law that people listen to that collection.
  4. Junior Murvin, produced by Lee Scratch Perry at his Black Ark Studios. I still have my 1975 vinyl copy and a CD. There's an entire album of awesome. Scratch later produced the Clash himself and told them to turn their guitars down.
  5. 2 Tone was recycled Ska. Sure, it was good, but mostly covers of Jamaican originals from the mid to late sixties. The Beat came closest. Stand down Margaret. Look it up on YouTube
  6. A Rega Planar 1 turntable costs 350. Lanny is just starting out.
  7. Does anyone want to buy an Official Matchday thread? For 75 quid, you can buy an all in one gimmick turntable that looks like a suitcase. It will plow the grooves of your record collection with 5 or 6 grams of downward pressure. It doesn't sound like much but it will eventually destroy your records. Apart from that, the arm is made of horrible wobbly plastic. Mine tracks at 1.78 grams.
  8. Series 4 is on Netflix now and our reluctant superhero is back. Meanwhile his two daughters are taking down drug gangs and the soundtrack is glorious. Funkiest thing on TV
  9. My first generation Apple AirPods now crap out after ten minutes. Battery indicator says 100%. Then it says 0%. Testing some Klipsch* T5s at the moment. *Klipsch send me stuff for evaluation. Not an endorsment or advert.
  10. Sure thing LLP. First and foremost I love music. I love talking about hifi too. Not the insane hifi where you buy a loudspeaker cable (just the one) for 32,000 pounds. That actually exists. It is a thing. There's no audible difference for a human between a shielded copper 4mm2 cable that costs 5 pounds per metre and a twisted silver plated multi strand. We can't hear it. Dogs might but they don't speak rock and roll. Dogs probably listen to Johann Sebastian Bach or would if they understood how to operate a record player. Just have fun with it.
  11. Definitely a decent turntable - that's your source and it's interacting directly with your precious records. The Pro-Ject model above is absolutely fantastic for it's price class and ready to go right out of the box. Maybe one of those micro systems might be a solution? You generally get a combined amp, radio and CD and two small separate speakers. You will need a phono pre-amp because it will likely only have line in which requires a far higher voltage than what the turntable can deliver. I've seen pre-amps for around 35 quid. They can go into the thousands. Mine was just under 200 and also lets me rip vinyl to digital. Don't get something with plastic speaker boxes, needs to be wood. Another option could be used off ebay or similar. I've noticed people who are into vinyl tend to look after their systems well and upgrade a lot so there's always decent gear to be had. If you are going to start hanging around record shops, get to know people who run it and their customers. We are a strange but friendly bunch. It's how I got my Ayon valve amp, the seller even gave me a spare set of brand new matched tubes.
  12. Pro-Ject Primary E turntable 150 - 200 quid. Klipsch R-41PM active speakers with a phono input 350 quid or so. That's a very nice and compact system, it will sound really good. A separate amp and passive speakers will give you more flexibility. Something like a Yamaha AS201 doesn't cost much. and is more than decent. Order on Amazon and you can return stuff if it doesn't live up to expectations
  13. I have a Sonny Clark T-Shirt. He passed away in 1963. Loved getting tutted at by 90 year old blokes.
