    I’ve thought about that. My turntable is super simple- Rega 1. There’s not much I can play around with. It’s fairly new to me so I’d love if someone has experience with this table.

    Head there to the gear forum and find the wise sage @HiFi Guy . I mean it’s possible it’s the record, I don’t want to make you think it’s not. My orbit has a fixed vta and antiskate so my only options are alignment (which is a pain in the ass) and vtf, which is simple with a scale

    That James Brown album is overrated. All you hear the whole time on this recording is the audience screaming and applauding. Drove me nuts.

    Didn't word that clearly.

    Basically the sound of the audience bleeds heavily into the recording, sometimes drowning out the band and vocals. That bothered me.
    Not the audience enjoying themselves.

    To be clear, you lost me at “That James Brown Record is overrated”

    Ha ha. Yeah. I like James Brown as well, but that album is seriously overrated. It's always on top 100 lists, and to me the recording just sounds like shit. It's harsh.

    Overated. As in he ate too much before listening to the album and it made his experience uncomfortable. ALWAYS wait 30 minutes before spinning.

    This is why we actually need life guards.

    Not sure if this has been put on here but the insound 60% off sale is still going on with some new stuff added. Including the Luna Deluxe Penthouse release for $12.99.

    That is a steal! Supreme pressing, jump on it if you don’t already own it.

    If y'all don't have that Miles Davis, that's an excellent price on a 180g pressing mastered by Kevin Gray. It's a stereo version and the soundstage is phenomenal. Really splendid.




    (I currently own five different pressings of Kind of Blue, so I'm a bit obsessed with that album. Ha ha.)
