  • Day 3: Scouring the Marketplace for Goodies

    Bigger than a basketball court but slightly smaller than a football field. Roughly one-half of the hall was designated the "Record Fair" while the other half of the Marketplace was the Ear Gear Expo. Inside it sat 80 tables/booths filled to the brim with audiophile goodies ranging from software to cables to headphones to turntables and cartridges to record cleaning machines to reel-to-reel decks, etc. The Marketplace was always bustling and business was especially brisk for the software retailers including the big three Acoustic Sounds, Elusive Disc and Music Direct. Me? I finished off the first set of 12 tapes from Acoustics Sounds with the purchase of Stokowski's Rhapsodies and also a copy of the new Jacintha album featuring the music of James Taylor. Why didn't I buy more software? Because I have most of the LP series on standing order!

      Please tell Richard to do a Mac version. He will sell a lot more. Almost every audiophile I know is a Mac person, not a PC person, and by that I don't mean "Politely Correct".

      One of my favorite finds. A $399 table from Music-Hall. Included in the price: Table, arm, cartridge and phono section. Even does 78 rpm! You know it's not a vinyl grinder like some cheap tables.

            Who brought the Miura? They were disregarded until they weren't. One of the few cars from Sant'Agata Bolognese that eventually became a blue chipper. Woulda, shoulda, coulda.

              I grew to appreciate them only after their value skyrocketed. Did you ever see the one the guy in NOLA bought out of the Shah's collection? I think he has since sold it. It was some factory tricked SV.

            There's no shortage of software--be it of the tape, LP or digital persuasion at the Acoustic Sounds booth. Looking for something to playback those 15 ip tapes? How about a Mara Machines retrofitted MCI machine? Oh yes. Check out Acoustic Sounds' entire first series of 12 tapes by the Mara Machine tape deck. Chad is presently selling around 300 tapes a month and is busy readying the first series two release Sonny Boy Williamson Keep It To Ourselves.

                A new inexpensive ultrasonic record cleaning machine from Ex-Canadian Charles Kirmuss. Priced at $795, the new Kirmuss Audio record cleaning machine takes up to 4 records (2x33, 1x45, 1x78) at once taking roughly a total time of 5 minutes to clean an album.

                  As stated later in this thread, a very sloppy website. I've yet to see a genuine consensus on the appropriate frequency to generate for record cleaning. This one operates at 35kHz. Most folks seem to believe in 60kHz.

                Steve Evans of Perfect Vinyl Forever journeyed down from Wauwatosa, WI with his commercial/industrial style record cleaning machines. Steve uses a variety of conventional record cleaning with enzymes, temperature, ultrasonic cleaning and drying process to get the best out of both new and used albums. The LP cleaning process takes around 30 minutes and as Steve pointed out, how many audiophiles want to spend 30 minutes cleaning all their records? Even a small amount? Steve joined AN and hopefully will have more to share with the forum.

                  Thanks for the great pictures, Myles! We had an absolute blast at the show introducing our service to the press, attendees and the industry. The concept was very well received.

                Zavfino 1877Phono brought along a variety of fun things including several turntables, arm, cables and connectors. The Aesna Series Tonearms are made from various materials including aluminum and carbon fiber (both under $1000) and a new titanium arm (price TBD). The arms use is cryotreated steel knife edge vertical bearing and ceramic horizontal bearing. The arms work with cartridges weighing 5 to 15 grams.

                  ...and one of their technological firsts, Zavfino employs graphine as an EMI shield material. Their price/build quality, generous use of sophisticated materials and techniques puts them square in my radar as a must taste test!

Steve uses a variety of conventional record cleaning with enzymes, temperature, ultrasonic cleaning and drying process to get the best out of both new and used albums. The LP cleaning process takes around 30 minutes and as Steve pointed out, how many audiophiles want to spend 30 minutes cleaning all their records? Even a small amount?
                  I spend about that long, per record, though that's during dedicated cleaning time where I'm able to do other things while a record is in the 24-minute ultrasonic bath. Seems that he goes a step or two beyond what I do these days (ultrasonic with TergiKleen without pre-clean, followed by 2 rinse/vacuum passes on an RCM). I've had limited luck with diy enzymatic dilution, and only had good results with AIVS No 15, and not sure what his drying process might be. Nice setup there, though. Looks very effective, particularly for large scale, being able to do so many at once. Very nice.

                    On average it takes me about 30 mins too, but I'll do batches of 15,20 or more LPs at a time. imo, this is time much better spent than futzing around with cable elevators, Ouija boards, voodoo dolls and related talismans you guys use to chase away sonic gremlins
