Re: the plural of vinyl is vinyl...

Some dude was telling me how he got some new vinyl players with pitch control and I had to cut him off...

"For fuck's sake! How many times do I have to tell you. THE PLURAL OF VINYL PLAYER IS VINYL PLAYER."

My favorite vinyl as a child was Bill Cosby - Himself. I played it on my Fisher Price "vinyl player". Thank you.

It is a turnable table, hence...turntable.

Maybe it's the Martha Stewart Living coming out, but isn't that just a Lazy Susan?

Re: the plural of vinyl is vinyl...

Back in my day we had to steal the music from our own computers. Then we'd put it in a box you could fit in your pocket. We didn't have to worry about plurals.

But bigger is better I suppose, things evolve. What a great day to be alive.

Even use of the term Computer is becoming anachronistic (in english literature).

I think that's because now we differentiate between Mac, PC, Laptop, Android, Device types, etc.

Yeah. I hear "laptop" and maybe even "desktop" more than computer, probably.

I've always avoided 3rd party styluses... what cartridge did you get a stylus from them for?

I have a bunch of carts here... stanton 500... an Excel... an old and a newer Shure M95ed.... Sc35c, Ortofon Lm30, Empire mkVI...various Audio Technicas... others. I'm so tempted to throw cash at this because it makes such a huge difference. But some youtubers seem to have had bad experiences with third party suppliers...

Currently using a pair of good ol' m44-7. There is quite a few fairly revealing comparative tests out there from people who take the time to properly set things up and my conclusion, so far, is that it's hard to find a significantly better sounding cart that you can back-cue with, independently of cost.

I thought Shibata is just a stylus type (I suppose they are a manufacturer too, sorry for the confusion), like sperical or elliptical, it's the next step up. It has an even pointier bottom so it reaches deeper into the groove, originally designed to extract the rear speaker info for quad setups by tracking frequencies up to 40khz and sending them through a divider for the rear channel, as I understand. In stereo, however, that means much more linear frequency response all the way out beyond your hearing and it goes deeper in the groove, so for old records you can get better quality if they've only been played with spherical or elliptical styli, and less distortion.

I have an AT120E that came on my table, but I didn't know how to set my counterweight at first and I bent the original needle, so I bought an AT140ML stylus (ML being microline, with is the AT equivalent of a Shibata). When I got mine, they weren't so outrageous, I spent $120 for the stylus, now I think they're close to $200.

https://www.ortofon.com/media/14912/...tyli_types.pdf

Check out the link, I'm pretty sure you can buy a stylus type that gets even closer to A there, but I don't even know what it's called. I only have a middle of the road shibata type (I went for nude diamond, but I couldn't afford to spring for a boron cantilever or even more exotic materials) and I can't really justify going to a more advanced stylus without first getting better speakers and some room treatment.

That's far too wide, it won't even fit in a groove.:problemofficer:
