    Is that a Goldring G-800 cartridge you're using?

    And yes, some of those classical recordings on Decca sound stunning. However, there is a dedicated area for posting classical music spins, see here: https://theartofsound.net/forum/show...39#post1294439

    Picked this one up along with 6 more up in a Dorking Antique shop whilst visiting my best friend for a few days. There were 3 shelves of plastic storage boxes on top, with around 200 LPs in each, I reckon around 16-18 boxes so about 3500 to look through. I only went through the Rock, Jazz, Prog Rock and Classical boxes. Most were in pretty good condition, VG+ to NM, but you needed to look carefully, as around 10% were not worth having due to poor condition. Oddly all were marked at £8 each, so the dealer obviously brought up collections and did minimal checks and priced them up at £8. It was quite annoying as I found 3 quite rare records I really wanted but the vinyl condition just was not worth £8, more like £2-3 so I left well them. On the shelves below the boxes were more records but these were mainly the general dross you find in 2nd hand shops and were £1-2 each, not worth bothering with. I managed to negotiate a 10% discount overall, so it worked out OK.

    Listening to an album I always seem to forget about, but whenever I come back to it I always wonder why it's taken me so long!!
    Really think this Marvin's best work, but in a different way to his other work. There's an emotional journey here unlike no other.
