Do you play your records at home

Recommended Posts

Very seldom play records at home, i have down-loaded  about a 1/4 off my collection to my pc and despite my intentions i can't seem to find the time to download the rest. Any new record that i buy is listened to and down-loaded at the same time then put away in one off my cases.

Yes, I am aware of Dearborn company sleeves, and have my lonely one Dearborn Record inside of one.

I have over 3,000 singles and approx 900 albums in my record collection and i play my vinyl every week, mostly on a Hacker because i love  the clear sharp tone it has, which i don't seem to get from my hi fi,  and even though i have a top of the range Rega deck i still prefer the sound of the Hacker.

No mystery since your 45's are almost all MONO. I had to understand through the years how to combine my phono stage to a cost, good is expensive, and after a lot of investigation and DIY tweaks to give justice in sound for my beloved records. Now I can enjoy and "discover" them all anew with "Oomph & Kick" with no ear bleed. No matter how high-end phono set-up you have, none is universal to any kind of records and musical genre !!! Then you have the subjective listeners taste and ear-buds. Just start and try to understand what is the impact of the stylus cut/shape in the groove and that is only the start... I'm no audiophile geek I swear, I only love a good sound for my good records !

Once the daughter's in bed about 8.30ish I get my headphones out pretty much every night for an hour or so. I can't think of a better way to wind down. Even after quite a few years of DJ retirement I still occasionally find myself making selections based on what would make a good set, imagining the crowds reaction, what would go with what etc.

Last night involved a bit of Jazz-funk inspired by the other thread.

One thing I'm not going to do after staring at a monitor all day at work is switch my laptop on.

Having not been to an event for at least 15 years it's the only time i get to hear any northern - got about 600 originals brought in the late 70's and the 80's when i regualrly attended and occasionaly "jocked" at niters and 60's nites, that the missus keeps telling me to sell.

 

must admit when i see the prices today when I only paid £100+ twice in my time it is tempting to download them onto digital and cash in - but i do enjoy blasting out the sounds in 30/40 minute sessions getting ready to go out for an evening

So just got home from working away for a few days, everyone in bed early so dragged a pile of records out. Played Victoria Williams & J B Ledbetter Show Some Sign as I remebered playing that eons ago.

Then flipped it over and found We're So Satisfied is bloody brilliant, and if I'd just been click playing would never have done that.

 

I'm a happy boy 🙂

 

'We're so satisfied', Yes we are ! Proper Uptempo Soul or what, Nice One ! 😀

I play my 45's every day of the week, I never really got into CD's and I'm not up for listening to youtube or spotify. I'll leave that to the young 'un's, for me you cant beat a record and never will.

it would be great if you (and others) would contribute to this topic then! Living Room DJ

Yes play in the music room , often when a new tune arrives.

Wife watches recorded Netball and I dig out stuff not heard out or a few B sides while reading in between tracks. Old man?
