  1. French Horn Recommendations

    Thanks all! Appreciate all the responses.
  2. My daughter was asked to take up the French horn (she currently plays trumpet) next year for the school band / orchestra. I'm looking for recordings which highlight the horn to help familiarize her with the sound / capabilities of the instrument before she starts lessons this summer. Jazz, Classical, etc... any genre.
  3. Jazz In Paris

    I have their 10in vinyl release of the Guerin title. Its an excellent package with what I imagine is period correct flip / fold jacket. The cover art is excellent, as is the session.
  4. New Dynavector Cartridge for my Rega Planar 3

    Catching up on threads so sorry to dredge up an old one. Congrats on the cart. LOVE the DV line and have stepped through the line up from 10x5 (on a Rega variant) to the 20X and have had an XX2 on the NA for 8+ years. I only wish they had a more "affordable" mono cart. I had to deviate from the DV line and go with an Ortofon cart for the mono setup. So to keep this timely, what are your impressions after six months of "break in?"

    I've been using the Osage regiment for a few years. Have not heard of Art du Son... Any one tried both for comparison's sake?
  6. Gene Shaw Argo LPs

    I saw Breakthrough in the bins last week. Looks like I'll have to head back to grab it now. Thanks folks!
  7. Sorry to dredge up an old thread but does anyone have any information re: Malta, the illustrator of ML4841? The design was used with different color ways for other releases in this series as well.
  8. LP cleaning- how do you?

    I'm in complete agreement here. What are people using for record-cleaning fluid? I use the Osage Audio / Audio Intelligent fluids. The No. 6 for most LP's, the No. 15 followed by the No. 6 for truly dirty LP's. Either way, I leave the fluid on the LP for 12 - 15 minutes before vacuuming.
  9. I've picked them up on occaision as well. I compared the Miles' releases to the Classic Records 10in releases from the 90's and prefer the Classic but YMMV. I'm assuming these are digitally sourced like the recent 75anny LP reissues. Either way, the music is great and my LPOCD loves them as artifacts.
  10. LP cleaning- how do you?

    Another +1 for VPI 16.5. Mine has been going strong for over 10 years without a problem... unless you count the vacuum tube I dropped and crushed when I stepped on it. Friend has an ultrasonic machine which is unreal (cost and performance). Clean records on my VPI are even cleaner / quieter after cleaning on his machine. Amazing....
  11. Waiting for the fam to wake up...
  12. Day late on this but maybe they have some boxes left over... $75 each on Thursday, half that on Friday, maybe even less now? http://www.soulisestatesales.com/ http://dirksoulisauctions.com/Gallery.php?Title=Slater Estate Sale&Gallery=SES2015-08-27-Slater Boxes are in the last pic in the second row. Friend tipped me onto this late last week but I was in ATL. Good luck!

  14. Replacements Twin Tone LP Box

    Meh. Didn't do enough research before picking it up. Something seemed wrong from the get go so I compared Let It Be and Hootenanny to my originals and confirmed what sounded like a different take / mix. Sure enough, I found a thread on the interwebs (Hoffman, I think) that confirmed that Rhino used the same digital masters as the 2007/2008 CD's which included edits, truncated tracks, and all sorts of butchering. Man, what happened to Rhino?
