I've done the glue method On some "got nothing to lose" discs. It works, but I've found a spin clean followed by a diy vacuum attachment gets them just as clean without the hassle. Spin clean has half price sales on their website every now and then. It's a good entry level cleaning system imo.

$80 for a table and speakers...I'd stay away. I'd guess that thing is like a bluetooth version of a Crosley and tracks at 7 grams.

#1194 1 year ago

If you're going to do the glue, use titebond II. Is the easiest to work with.

Is that an original press? Never saw it in yellow!

No, it's the newer rhino pressing. They did each disc in a unique color.

Personally, I'd avoid the metallica reissues. The two i have sound horrible.

#1421 1 year ago
Quoted from Pickle:

That's the problem with some reissues......old analog masters are not always used......sometimes they are......sometimes it's all remastered digital so it's a crapshoot on the reissue vinyl. Many sound great so I have no complaints so far....but I do try to pick up nice original copies when I find them. Its amazing when you find an original with zero wear and you wonder if it was ever played.

With the metallica issues, my problem isn't even that it's a digital transfer. I've heard plenty of digital transfers on vinyl that sound great. With these, the mastering is dull and lifeless. Like there's a blanket over the speakers. My reissue of puppets is also the noisiest new vinyl I've ever heard.

#1456 1 year ago

If there is one piece of vinyl everyone needs, it's on sale for $9.99 today 180g : link »

Quoted from chippe01:

Looks like it might not be the best for records - pushing down on the top, is that putting more pressure on the stylus resting in the groove?
I can't see how this would be stable at 78 RPM, but I'm curious.

They advertise crackles and pops, which tells me They already miss the point.

Quoted from Chitownpinball:

Thanks for the info. They were in my parents basement during a few floods. Never submersed but definitely got some moisture exposure. I was thinking the same thing though, MORE moisture. Probably a hot shower with the door closed and no fan or someting.
Luckily, its not ALL of them. I plan to get them all out of the crates and make piles of GOOD/BAD/WORSE before I go about trying to separate any.
Thanks again.

I think that's the way to go, followed by a good wet cleaning of each disc.

Seeing all these technics posts reminded me I've had this thing sitting on a shelf for months. It's an SL 1350 mkii and the plastic piece that controls the automatic arm movement is broken. I've got a replacement part and need to get it back together.

Speaking of Sabbath..have u ever heard Sheavy?! The singer is verrrry similar to a young ozzy! Canadian stoner rock!

No but I'll check out. I've been in the mood for some nice sludgy metal

#1868 1 year ago
Quoted from Skrippy:

What's everyone's take on picture discs or colored vinyl over all? Just curious I've heard anything but black has overall worse quality. (Sorry if this has already been discussed!)

I have several colored discs that sound amazing. I don't own any picture discs and have heard that they sound inferior. That being said, a buddy of mine owns several and said they sound fine.

#1889 1 year ago

Quoted from Chisox:

Just a heads up those new Metallica pressings sound like shit. If that sort of thing matters to you. They never sounded great in the first place (the music obviously rules) but I bought this and MOP and they sound like it’s playing on one of those Fisher Price record players.
Edit to add I just realized it’s 9.99. Probably worth it.

I concur. My Ride reissue is bad but tolerable. Puppets is unlistenable.

#1966 1 year ago
Quoted from Rascal_H:

My mission this summer is to find a cheap tape deck at a yard sale to add to my system so I can buy GNR Appetite and INXS Kick on cassette #lifegoals

I know cassettes are making a comeback, but i had my fill of them in the 80s. That's one format i won't be revisiting.

Anyone have the metallica black album reissue? How's the sound quality? My experience with their other reissues is that they're God awful, but I've read that the black album is the exception. Wouldn't mind picking it up if that's the case.

No kidding. I think there's some drama with the old labels unfortunately. Hopefully we'll get that and pure rock on vinyl someday.

Speaking of receivers, I'm taking my trusty NAD 7020 for one last spin before tearing it open for a partial recap. Unfortunately, she's started to hum like crazy in recent months.

I like mine a lot. Try using one of those wand attachments for your shop vac the spin clean. Been using this process for a while now with great results.

Great album. My dad had this one in his collection. My mom gave all of his albums to goodwill after they split. Still pissed about that one.
