check to make sure the grounding wire is in place too. it's odd that it starts around the same spot every time on each record. makes me wonder if it's picking up some electronic feedback underneath the platter when the needle gets to that point?

Woah, it's very $$$y. I'm sure it's worth it for the quality but not ready to spend that much right now. Apparently the 'red' version is half the price - anyone have experience with the red version?

yes, that was my first upgrade. Go with the Red. i felt an immediate difference on that table with the Red. I just gave you the idea for the Blue because i wish I had just gone straight there for the extra $100.

Filled in some gaps, found some good deals and upgraded a few older copies lately.

Trompe Le monde - pixies MSFL. Now got The lot, Doolittle is the pick of em.
Lemonheads - Shame about Ray
Stooges- fun house
Smashing pumpkins - melon collie
Ryan Adams - love is hell MFSL
Beck mutations
Tim rogers - what rhymes with cars and girls
War on drugs - deeper understanding. If PAIN is not the best song of last year, I didn't hear the one that was.
Stones - beggars banquet, let it bleed, ya-yas. The DSD pressings. These sound really fucking great.
Preordered sun kil moon - ghosts and Damien rice - O. Amped to finally have both of them..

Source tags and codes has been re released aswell, anyone got their mitts on it? How does it sound?

Ha, I abstained for like the last 3 months of the year so I could get to the post Christmas sales. Also purged the collection of shit I didn't want anymore, but yeppers, it's a solid haul.

The rush you get when you win an auction on eBay is like nothing else.

:thumbsup:

Bought this and Michael Chapman's "Wrecked Again" from Light in the Attic today. My resolution to buy fewer records this year is going great.
