For the first time after the arrival of Compact Disc and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford. The new DEBUT Carbon DC has been designed to set new standards in this category for the coming decade – perfectly timed as analogue today is again a respected source, while the demand for good turntables is growing again!The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a CARBON TUBE for the tonearm, which increases stiffness and decreases unwanted resonance. This material normally is extensively used in high-end tonearms, but – because of cost reasons – was never used in products at lower price levels. Together with other improvements like an increase in platter size and weight to realize even smoother rotation, the overall sound quality is greatly improved. The approved belt drive design offers low noise AC motor with effective motor decoupling (utilizing TPE-damping) and ultra precision frequency DC-driven AC generator (like Speed Box) for ultimate speed stability without unwanted vibration.

  3. ..according to loveantiques.com They say: Have you ever wondered what the most expensive vinyl records in the world are? In case you are curious, we’ve compiled a list of the twenty most valuable records and how much they are worth. We partnered with an expert to bring you this list as well as a set of guidelines for prospective vinyl investors. The 20 most valuable vinyl records in the world is as follows: [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 1. ‘White Album’ by The Beatles originally owned by Ringo Starr - £730,876. Ringo Starr sold his copy of the ‘White Album’, last year at auction for $910,000, which was the first ever to be created - the other Beatles members had the second, third and fourth pressings. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 2. “That’ll Be The Day/In Spite Of All The Danger” by The Quarrymen - £100,000 The 1958 original is the only known copy of the pre-Beatles disc recorded at a local electrical shop by McCartney, Lennon and Harrison with drummer Colin Hanton and pianist John Duff Lowe. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 3. "Love Me Do" by The Beatles - £80,500. There is only one known pressing of the one-sided acetate, unedited version with count-in hence the huge price tag. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 4. “Music For Supermarkets” by Jean Michel Jarre - £10,000 - £30,000. In 1983 Jarre made 1 copy of this album and then destroyed the master tapes, which is why the price is so high for this record. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 5. “Do I Love You (Indeed I Do) by Frank Wilson - £25,000. Only 2 originals have ever surfaced on the Motown label offshoot Soul. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 6. “God Save The Queen” by Sex Pistols - £12,000. Before they were kicked off the A&M label about 300 of these were pressed making this record very rare. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 7. “Would You Believe” by Billy Nicholls - £10,000. Only 100 copies of this 60's psych/folk/rock album, pressed in its original guise, were manufactured. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 8. “Please Please Me” by The Beatles - £7,500 It’s important when buying Beatles albums to check the matrix numbers that are cut into the run off groove. These numbers will allow you to work out which pressing you have. As Beatles albums were made by the million it is often these numbers that make the difference between a £10 vinyl and a £1000 treasure [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 9. “Kind Hearted Woman Blues” by Robert Johnson - £7,000. Only two photographs of him exist and his 78's records are just as rare, especially those released on the Vocalion label. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 10. “Bohemian Rhapsody/I’m In Love With My Car” by Queen - £5,000. The EMI special edition of the single was also an invite to a company event. For this reason, the 7” record came with matches, a pen, a ticket, a menu, an outer card sleeve, a scarf and an EMI goblet. If you have a complete collection with all of the different items, then this is extremely valuable. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 11. “Pride” by U2 - £5,000. It was originally pressed in Australia on clear vinyl, coloured vinyl is extremely collectible especially when only 5 copies were made, like with this U2 album. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 12. “Midsummer Night’s Scene/Sara Crazy Child” by John’s Children - £4,000. The single was pressed on 7” vinyl but for some reason was never released. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 13. “Latch On/Only A Daydream” by Ron Hargrave - £3,000. There are only six UK copies known to exist hence the high valuation. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 14. Led Zeppelin’s 1969 first album - £3,000. Led Zeppelin’s first vinyl album is very common, however the initial pressing had turquoise lettering of the band’s name on the front cover. It was swiftly replaced with the now familiar orange lettering. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 15. “Love Me Do/PS I Love You” by The Beatles - £3,000 250 demo copies of this 1962 7” single contained the misspelling, ‘McArtney’. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 16. “Space Oddity/Wild Eyed Boy From Freecloud” by David Bowie - £3,000 Only a couple of copies of the 7” single with an unreleased picture sleeve are known to exist. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 17. “Tinkerbells Fairydust LP” by Tinkerbells Fairydust - £3,000 A slightly obscure British pop group, Tinkerbells Fairydust recorded this bubblegum psych album for Decca, but it was never released. It had extremely unusual packaging and a laminated front sleeve with a mono stereo ‘peephole’ on the back. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 18. “Erotica” by Madonna - £2,000. Picture discs are also very collectible and when Madonna released this album in 1992, it was quickly withdrawn from sale because the toe-sucking image on the cover coincided with similar stories involving Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York. Consequently not many were sold so it’s a rare find. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 19. “Love is Strange” by Wings - £1,500-£2,000. “Love is Strange” was due to be released as a 7” from the Wildlife album, however Paul McCartney changed his mind at the last minute, however a few copies leaked out onto the market and are now valuable records. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] [TABLE] [TR] [TD] 20. “Tudor Lodge” by Tudors Lodges - £1200. This is their one and only album and was released on the legendary Vertigo label. [/TD] [TD=width: 20%][/TD] [/TR] [/TABLE] http://www.loveantiques.com/blog/2016/11/The-most-expensive-vinyl-records-in-the-world

    Are you still spinning discs too, whether vinyl itself or various 12cm varieties ? A Thread then to share discs—ɹǝʌǝʇɐɥʍ, whenever released, we'd like to Comment upon Well, I recently bought all 10 SACD Soundtracks of Wong Kar Wai's films : He's celebrating 25 years... Generally, the most accessible, English-wise, are tracks in My Strawberry Nights : Incidentally, Anniversary set also available individually in vinyl
  5. Hi folks, Just letting you know that there's a new Kickstarter on for a TTW Technics 1200 Outer Periphery Record Clamp. This device helps remove warps and distortion from old vinyls.
  6. Hi guys, Just thought you guys might be interested to see this. Dave Lowe had been making games music since the early 80s for a number of top videogames including Sega's Afterburner, Elite, Carrier Command, Double Dragon, Starglider, Street Fighter II, International Karate, Ghostbusters, Geoff Crammond's F1 and many more. Now he's launched a new Kickstarter aiming to take some of his music and turn it into actual proper music instead which will be released on CD & vinyl. Should be good fun!

  8. I am currently recording my vinyl collection into high resolution Flac files currently using Adobe Audition but looking to buy Vinyl Studio if it can do all I need it to, which on first appearance looks like it can. However, I am looking for advice. My current setup is Technics SL 1210 MKII, Pioneer DJM-500 mixer, Mac Book Pro running windows 7. With this setup, I have discovered 2 major problems which means that the Vinyl I have recorded so far, will have to be discarded and I'll need to start over. The problems are: 1) Quite a lot of the recordings I have made are suffering scratchy type noises. At first I thought that it was because of a worn stylus, but when I listened to the audio from the source (IE headphones plugged into the mixer, the audio was flawless). So the these flaws were as a result of the analogue to digital conversion happening within the sound card of the Mac. I think this is what is called 'Clipping' but I am not sure. 2) I am finding that there are a lot of timing errors in the recorded audio. IE when you play back the audio, there can sometimes be a lot of micro jumps, almost like slight skipping as though small fractions of the audio were not recorded properly and thus are not in the resultant audio. I have tested on different devices and this happens consistently so I know its a problem with the recording itself rather than the playback. Now for both of these issues, I think that the problem is caused by the limited capability of the sound card in the Mac and I am guessing that I may be able to resolve both of these issues by using an offboard USB device (IE like an external soundcard). There are 3 products that I am thinking of purchasing: a) Propellaheads Balance USB Audio interface b) Tascam US-366 c) Apogee Duet I would like your expert opinion as to whether you think one of these type of devices will help in resolving the issues I have documented. Looking forward to hearing your views, thanks.
