Re: Lets talk about vinyl

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

Sort of vinyl related - but I have just seen that Technics are releasing new models of their infamous SL 1200 range - it's called the SL 1200 G. It's good to know that they have put it back into production. Of course - it will be expensive - so I'd recommend getting an earlier model off of Ebay or ...

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

It all depends on how well the master is cut, and the quality of the raw materials. The colour doesn't really matter.

The label Fruits De Mer releases everything on coloured vinyl, and the sound quality on their records is second to none.

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

That's a can of worms! Basically....picture discs sound crap. There's nothing to be done about it, the vinyl is so thin because of the image samdwiched in the middle that it's impossible to get a really good sound. As for coloured vinyl....well. It depends on so many factors that there's no hard and...

Re: Lets talk about vinyl

It's usually limited represses on coloured vinyl or picture disc, box sets, that kind of thing.

New music is an RSD rarity nowadays, although I did pick up a PiL live album last year which was previously only on CD, and Metallica released a cassette of their first demo tape.

Re: PS3 Gaming is great, get on board yo

I played the PS4 remaster, and I loved it. Only the second game I've ever Platinum-ed, the first being Assassin's Creed II, so it's in esteemed company.

It was a lunchtime show on ITV that I remember being similar to Jackanory called something like We'll tell you a story presented by Christopher Lillicrap.

Yeah that series looks really good, if the quality of the pressing on the first release is decent I might subscribe.
