Figured that was the one you were talking about. I'm going to grab that one, despite my dislike for having to change the belt over to listen to 45's. Every AP production I've ever bought has knocked my socks off. You and I have considerable overlap in our tastes, judging from your posts on here.

Yeah I hear you on the changing of the belt for different speeds. My table is like that too, but my belt is easily accessible. I don’t have to take off the platter or anything to reach it like on some tables.

My biggest issue with 45’s is that I get annoyed having to get up and flip sides every 8-10 minutes...and the extra cost. I’m sure people with amazing setups can hear a difference, but I honestly can’t on mine between a 33 and a 45. Unfortunately AP only offers this dean album in 45.

So I REALLY want a set of the chrome tulip stands but I haven’t seen a set pop up recently in the last couple months. I found a guy locally with a complete set of 901s and I asked if he’d sell just the stands. He innitially said no, which is understandable, then text back later saying he would sell them. The deal was good enough that I’ll be fine with settling for black for now until I can find a reasonably priced chrome set.

Getting them up off the floor and ~12” from the wall helped sound quality tremendously. The spacing still isn’t right so I’m going to move everything to an opposite wall and try that out, space is a bit limited.

Still sorting through that album collection I bought, tonight was Grand Funk Railroad and Gary Clark Jr Live.

You really did an awesome job bringing those old speakers back to life. Impressive!

Does anyone have an Ultrasonic Cleaner or bought a record cleaned this way? I bought a 1968 Planet of the Apes Soundtrack off of eBay and supposedly it was cleaned this way. I must say the album looks brand spanking knew and it plays amazing. Highly recommend purchasing albums if they claim to be cleaned in this fashion. Of course buying from eBay is a gamble without seeing it first hand.

See if you can find a copy of Mickey Hart Dafos. It really shines as a 45.

This record store in Ohio is offering %15 off new LP's and free shipping with orders over $50 for this weekend. It's their 4 year anniversary.
I picked up the Beatles White Album Deluxe 4 LP set.

If you just ask the folks at MusicDirect or Elusive Disc for 15% off and free shipping, they will give it to you.

Good deal! Hope you like the Beatles reissues.

Since I bought my entire VPI ScoutMaster table and accessories, then the VPI Aries 3 table and 3 Lyra carts (I kept breaking them!) from ElusiveDisc, I negotiated a 20% off and free ship on every future order—even if I order at 11pm online, it will reflect those discounts.

I always stress the importance of getting to know your dealer. Even if it is an out of state outfit, spend some time bullshiteting with them on the phone...it can save you a good bit over the long haul.

Looks like that was a good night!

Dunk, they are Focals... I think one of the versions of the Utopias. Obviously Marco could be of more help...
