    Episode 97 – 7.11.21

    PLAYLIST 97 uploads Nov 7, 2021 and it’s 74% vinyl friendly. Not bad. The Jive Turntable. Roughly £140 for this bright and breezy set up, so don’t expect wonders. ‘Entry level’, I think they call it… and that set of button controls reminds me of some remote/zapper used for the TV… or something else I […]

    Episode 96 – 3.10.21

    PLAYLIST 96 uploads Oct 3, 2021 and it’s 96% vinyl friendly Near perfect. We’d have had a ‘full house’ if it hadn’t been for me including a demo from one of the bands I was involved with. The Saint Laurent Rive Droite x Pierre Riffaud viny table. I don’t know how much of a clamour […]

    Episode 95 – 5.9.21

    PLAYLIST 95 uploaded Sept 5, 2021 and it’s 77% vinyl friendly Not bad. The Third Man Records Spinnerette Turntable. Priced at $160 this isn’t for your high end hi-fi buff but with tech improvements through the years I’m sure Jack White and his team have incorporated a quality level here that’s well above what was […]

    Episode 94 – 1.8.21

    PLAYLIST 94 uploaded Aug 1, 2021 and it’s 84% vinyl friendly! Impressive. Just a few of the over one hundred vintage (60’s, 70’s and 80’s) portable record turntables, exhibited in 2016 at Tokyo’s Lifestyle Design Center by record store owner, Fumihito Taguchi. In between my family’s Dansette (early 60’s) and the National Panasonic SG-1070L music centre […]

    Episode 93 – 4.7.21

    PLAYLIST 93 uploaded July 4, 2021 and is 82% vinyl friendly! Impressive. A Project Debut Carbon Evo turntable. A few friends have Projects of slightly older marks than this lad and they regularly score highly in reviews of turntables around the £400-£500 mark – and let’s face it, if all you want to be interested […]
