hey friends, this my account for posting the 70s and 80s records (and sometimes some other stuff) that come by my turntable and spotify.
discogs in the profile to track the out-of-print, not-streaming stuff I hunt down; spotify for So. Many. Playlists.
i'm a dad and i like dad music.
listening gear (spring 2020 edition)
primarily listening to records on the u-turn orbit turntable you see in my photos, with an acrylic platter, a leather slipmat, and an ortofon 2m red cartridge.
i also use a basic rolls VP29 phono preamp.
speakers are krk V6 studio monitors.
a sonos connect puts the records in other rooms of our house.
~will update this thread with upgrades/changes~

i got out of the sonos game, it was annoying
thinking about switching the ortofon 2m red for a goldring E3 per this review https://www.whathifi.com/us/best-buys/accessories/best-cartridges so if you're in the market for a good entry-level cart for your turntable i'd be happy to part with the red
