I am now one with the dark side . . .
. . . I've gone and done it.
I am now spinning vinyl on a decent TT. I own only one playable LP (I have some others but they need some cleaning after 40 years of storage), bought it New from a local shop: Van Morrison - Moondance
It sounds amazing on my loaner (until I get my own on order) Project RM-5 SE with Jolida Phono! I seriously have never felt so involved in the music. It is downright tangible, which is an amazing considering my Raysonic already produces deadly serious lifelike sound.
This is a proud moment for me here at Club Polk. I owe it all to you guys who brought me from my humble Yamaha HTR5890 to where I am today.
My Dad is sitting with me now in complete amazement as we listen to this record a third time. Seriously, his jaw is hanging . . . perhaps partly because of all the rum. But seriously, I don't know what vinyl sounded like in his day, but evidently there have been some improvements.
You guys Rock!
