    Vinyl Storage

    Im loving it thanks. Bought 2 or 3 albums at the weekend so enjoying listening to them. Not so much my sister's old vinyl, some of which are 40/50 year old. I really think they need a good clean, there's a lot of surface noise so I have been looking about at ways to deep clean them. The spincare looks interesting on Amazon.

    Vinyl Storage

    Not sure if this is the right forum or not. Just wondering what people think about plastic outer sleeves for storing records in. If so is there a certain type or brand people prefer. With being new to vinyl I want to keep all the albums I buy in good condition.
  3. Air - Moon safari, freshly purchased on vinyl
  4. I used a Stevenson protractor I found as a PDF online and printed it out. The instructions say this is the way Rega set there cartridges up so thought it would be worth a go. There seems to be dozens though using 2/3 different methods.
  5. Changed the bearing and oil, there was a new Rega belt in the box so changed that too just to make sure. I also fitted the new cartridge, followed the instructions and it seems to line up square with both points on the protractor. Does it look too far forward on the arm though or does that not matter so long as the points line up.
  6. Turntable came today. Absolutely over the moon with it. It's in total mint condition with not a mark on it. There's very slight polishing swirls on the lid if you look across it in the light but will polish these out at work sometime.
  7. Thanks for that, I won't bother with any spacer and just keep it all as easy as possible too start with.
  8. Well, I've purchased an Audio Technica AT-VM95E cartridge online. Small needlenose pliers and stylus scales from Amazon and downloaded an alignment protractor from the web and I'm just waiting on the turntable turning up now. I've watched a few YouTube videos for fitting and I'm fairly confident i have the ability to swap them over. I have been looking on a few places online about if it needs a 2mm spacer or not and it seems to be split. Folk saying it makes a difference and others saying they didn't bother and it's fine. Anyone know either way?
  9. Just won a P3 on eBay. Made a bid, forgot about it and it won. Seems in good condition and a genuine seller. Look like a fair deal? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rega-Planar-3-Later-Edition-P3-Model-RB300-Tone-Arm-Elys-Cartridge-/304133503299?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l6249&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  10. Fresh install of Volumio and now connected through ethernet (although still wireless as it's through a WiFi extender). Seems to be working fine now apart from not being able to attach my NAS. I just plugged an external drive into the pi using usb instead and it can see all my music. Sounding great, see how long it lasts for.
  11. Thanks, I will give it a swerve. I enjoy tinkering with things but maybe a steep learning curve with that.
  12. For the money would something like this be worth a punt on to test the waters of vinyl. I keep looking at the regas but this has popped up a couple of times when looking on eBay and think it's the same model as recommended a couple of pages back. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Systemdek-IIX-900-Turntable-with-upgrades-/265298953122?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  13. It's tidal connect that makes it easy to play music straight from the tidal app. You just tap a speaker icon and then tap volumio. I have bubbleupnp and although it works well it's not very slick or very friendly for other people to play music through tidal.
  14. I used moode originally and can't remember having any trouble with it. It's the tidal connection function that made me go to volumio. I will see if the ethernet makes a difference.
  15. My hub can't be anymore than 25' away from my pi. The hub is in the cupboard but it doesn't seem to affect any other devices that connected to it. The extender I bought is this one. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07ZWBBPQN/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_dl_C51C434CCBWFF9CQMKB0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
