  • Two Vinyl Music Playback Videos From Listening Position

    In a series of posts in this section (Off The Grid - Audionirvana.org) of the forum, I posted videos of my 6 tape decks playing music. Some of the videos were close to the deck and some were from the listening position.

    In this topic, I'll provide two videos (nothing elaborate, just an unedited mobile phone recording) of the system playing my vinyl setup as viewed from the listening position.

    Like the tape deck videos before this, Select 1080p HD for playback video quality for best sound
    Note: headphones or desktop speakers or system playback may sound better than the mono playback sound from a cellphone. Of course, still nowhere as good as in person.
    • The first video is Pablo record label original vinyl - Count Basie Big Band playing a part of the cut titled "Blues For The Barbecue" from the album Farmers Market Barbecue @ 33.3RPM
    • The second video is the entire 2nd movement of Scheherazade conducted by Reiner and the Chicago Symphony [LSC-2446]. It's either the AP or Classic 33.3RPM reissue.


    Each of the videos are using a different cartridge and tonearm configuration based on when they were recorded.

      Really impressive. Actually sounded great on my modest computer desk system. What type of mike are you using?

        There are now around twenty videos on the YouTube channel showing different source components. Some are from the listening location and some are up close to the component. More of the system can be seen regarding those the source components.

        In TAS issue #310 there is a photo of the equipment side of the room.

        Maybe that helps,

          I checked out some of your other videos didn't find an overall room view to understand your setup in any of them just some tape machine closeups and even one with your speakers in it.

          I had mentioned the videos show different source components (some close up and some from the listening position). The only other photo publicly available is the picture I mentioned of the system in TAS issue #310.

          Up until then, I've been very private about my space. That's all there is. I've not been much on posting room photos of my listening and working environment. Accommodating the magazine's request for issue #310 was near the limit of my comfort zone.

        Thanks. The sound is also from an unedited mobile phone recording.

          For something different (not classical or Jazz), I recorded the track "Heart To Hang Onto" from Pete Townshend and Ronnie Lane's Rough Mix album last night.

          I think it came out ok. It is the 1983 ATCO reissue.
          • Analog Vinyl - "Heart To Hang Onto" by Pete Townsend and Ronnie Lane @ 33.3RPM. From the ATCO 1983 Specialty Records Processing vinyl reissue of the 1977 released Rough Mix album.

            Sounds great. I use "Street in the City" a lot when setting up a cart and arranging speakers. Are you still using the Kentos?

            Thanks Rob. I actually recorded that one too but ultimately decided that one Townshend/Lane recording was probably enough.

            I'm back to my long-standing reference speaker setup. All of the three videos in this thread are the ref speakers and four subwoofers.
