Couple things on the subject- I finally have my turntable up and running now that I finally have a good phono preamp and I've been digging through all my old records. I've come to some conclusions. 1 - London records suck... FFRR or Phase 4 Stereo BLOW! There's so much distortion they're unlistenable. Am I doing something wrong? (I've spent a few hours today adjusting tracking force and cartridge angle, so this shouldn't be it.) 2 - There are some very good things on Vinyl! I just ordered a remaster of Saint-Saens Symphony No. 3 with Boston SO/Munch. I think Bernie Grundman must have remastered this one (his initials are inscribed in the inner ring). What a phenomenal job! Scott - if you read this, please let Bernie know I think this is amazing!!! (Not that he'll care what a clod like myself thinks of it, but fwiw, I have this as well as at least 10 other recordings of it. My favorite until recently has been a Telarc SACD (soundstream repressing) - this KILLS it!!!) Anyway - this isn't really a mastering topic per se, but you are the folks that know more about vinyl than anywhere else on this board, so I implore that it be allowed to stay here....please.... Also - Does anyone have any recommendations of some platters that I just can't or shouldn't live without????? Thanks! J.
