Received an Audio Technica record player today and my dad is currently listening to his fave records again. The deck has an in built MM phono stage and is a quality automatic with decent straight arm and removable headshell. Cartridge included. It's running through his JVC mini system with single dr...

Re: Combined LP, CD, Speakers

Oh dear me, what a palaver. End of last week and my dad decided to play records while i was there. good jazz sounds including the Dave Brubeck Quartet, take five etc. Sounds a little funny I thought so, asked dad what he heard. Sure enough we could both hear the same flutter, music out of time. Damn...

Re: Having a Ripping time with HDCD.

Even though I've had Bitches Brew and Dark Magus for years this is my first time hearing Jack Johnson. Epic jazz fusion. Good call Fretless.

Re: Combined LP, CD, Speakers

I've ordered the 'soundmaster MCD1700' for my dad. It looks compact and easy to use. soundmaster.JPG re: tape decks, I had a Yamaha cassette deck and before that a Nakamichi 480z (always wanted the dragon).

Re: Combined LP, CD, Speakers

Thanks for the suggestions. On browsing the web I was tempted to put together a small seperates hi-fi system with Denon and even looked at the B&O vintage stuff.. Fortunately came to my senses and have ordered a new all-in-one box with record player, CD, FM/AM, cassette and speakers. Exactly what my...

Combined LP, CD, Speakers

My father has a all-in-one record player/CD/cassette/speakers. Basically a crappy unit that has become hard to use. Looking around with a budget of around £150 I see lots of overpriced junk out there. The new unit needs to be easy to operate with legible buttons. He already has a FM/DAB radio. Does ...

Re: earphones

>>>Thread revival<<< It's only taken two years for me to buy a new set of earphones. "Slow and steady..." I've gone for Sennheiser MX 365 ear buds. Comparing to the Sony 90s ear buds being used for late night radio duties and these new buds are easier to drive. Only need to roll the volume slightly ...
