LMAO. Dude, you linked this community to your You Tube page. How could I not watch your birthday videos? :laughing8:
Last year's was good too. That clear vinyl 'Let it Be' is cool.

Thanks for the well wishes. HEY- you were supposed to bypass the blabbering part!

My sister turned 74 last year. Couldn't put 74 candles onto an eclair, so I came up with the idea of binary numbers on birthday cupcakes.

Yeah- the record is way cool, but is sounds like mud.

While the AT 120E is, in my opinion, probably the best cart I have heard at the $100 pricepoint, the Blue just does everything a little bit better to my ears and didn't force me to sell plasma or a kidney to own it(thanks to you).

Still would love to try the bronze or black styli later this year- how is the Blue treating you, Ben?

I use a Red, for most everything. The blue much like my Shibata, dont get used all that much. I keep them reserved for really clean albums only. Its a nice treat to switch to one of them the odd time for a real nice listen.

That's how I am with my Shure V15 type IV w/ Jico SAS stylus. I think it has less then an hour on it and I have had it about a year now. The V15 type II w/ NOS Shure Supertrack stylus gets all the playtime

Hey Ron. Long time no see bud. How you making out with everything. Hope all is well.

I likely have around 10 or more hours on the blue at this point. Its a great cart and I would suggest to anyone to have a listen to one if they get a chance.

Dang, Ben! It's still brand new. Since getting mine, I must be close to, if not over 1000 hours. Still use my Audio Technica, but reserve its use to test records purchased used and when other folks bring over their vinyl.

Hey Ben

I have a lot on my plate now and still facing a court date. Sorry I have not been on much, have not had the heart for it except randomly popping in. Finally fired up the WOPL this morning, have not had much incentive to enjoy music lately. Still not sure what's going on with the house insurance and won't until Spring when all this snow is gone and the contractors can do their thing

Come March 17th, I may be gone for another 90 days but the mother and I are working a deal to end this once and for all, hopefully the judge will listen (and the mother does not go back on her word)

Just restrung my old 1977 Strat, can't decide which sounds better... the 60th Anniversary USA Standard or the '77. They don't get much playtime as the Gibson Explorer is my go to guitar and even that has been neglected for the last month or so. I shot a video finally but it times out every time I try to upload it on Photobucket or the other video hosting sites. Not sure why, goes to the end and then just stalls
