Off to Ratae Corieltauvorum*

Post by Mr Onion » Sun Sep 09, 2018 11:20 am

On Wednesday I had an OOPS moment, and now its missing. The pretty sparkly thing hanging off of the end of the EKOS that is. Somehow I managed to catch it on my sleeve and ... :oops:

GOOD NEWS:- The accidental Damage on my John Lewis Insurance will cover it.

BETTER NEWS:- That means my KEEL/URIKA fund is unaffected, so as I will be in Ratae Corieltauvorum* tomorrow to get the XX replaced I thought ....

So tomorrow will give Peters Pixies the opportunity to pop in the house and replace al of my LP collection with remastered versions. :smt005 Hours/Days/Weeks/Months of fun to follow :smt023

* Ratae Corieltauvorum Roman name for Leicester

What a fantastic afternoon. Lunch at a super pub (The Star in Thrussington. About 10 min drive from Peters) and on to Cymbiosis.

Full strip down (the LP12 not Peter or Myself) throwing away (almost) everything that moved then a rebuild with KEEL, New DVXX and Urika with CHORD Shawline for my NAIMish pre. Lots of chat about this and that while Peter waved his magic, tweaked everything then tweaked it again, then bounce test, then tweak then ... (well you know how Peter works)

And we have a Freshly set up FAN BLOODY TASTIC sounding turntable. Through the dem rooms 808's it was great right from the off. Surface Noise? Never heard of it. Hum? Whats Hum? The music just flowed and flowed, getting better and better through the as the track went on (and no I can't remember what it was)

Out of interest Peter swapped my HoL mat for a LINN one. The difference was obvious from the first note, but I preferred the HoL and Peter preferred the LINN. Maybe thats because what we are used to, but I feel theres going to be some experimentation once this lot is run in.

Playing Rag n Bone man right now and its just getting better and better. Well under 2 hours on the clock and I absolutely love it.

Thank you Peter for supplying me a new record collection (again)
James
