Peter Horsfall's Valentine's Day Gift To You
Analog Planet


Published on Jan 25, 2018
The cover art for British jazz vocalist and trumpeter Peter Horsfall's recently released LP makes clear the music's moody, lonely-at-night feel. There's always hope though, embodied in his cover of pianist Barry Harris's "Paradise", presented here and transcribed via the new Technics SL-1000R turntable using an Ortofon A95 cartridge.

The other tracks on this self-released album (also on CD, streaming and download at Peterhorsfall.com) were co-written with alto saxophonist Giacomo Smith (one tune is by Duke Ellington with the duo's new lyrics). There's more to the story, which you can read on AnalogPlanet.com.

If you have difficulty expressing your love, sit your significant other down on Valentine's Day and play this!

You want to get into Vinyl Records? Watch this FIRST!
Too Many Records


Published on Jan 26, 2018
If you're thinking about getting into vinyl records, this short video is ESSENTIAL to watch first. People are going to steer you away from certain turntables, and they may not explain why, which can be really frustrating. I wanted to, in a simple manner, explain WHY people tell you not to get a Crosley or All-In-One record player so that you can dive into the hobby on the right foot. If you're a knowledgeable record fanatic, hopefully this video will be something you can share with new friends that want to join the wonderful world of vinyl.

Make sure you check out (and join!) my favorite record club, and this video's sponsor, Vinyl Moon: http://www.vinylmoon.co

Thrift Store Hi-Fi: Some tips and tricks
Technology Connections


Published on Jan 30, 2018
You can support this channel on Patreon! Link below
These days, it seems everyone wants the latest and greatest equipment for the audio needs. But there's a lot of fantastic hardware you can find in thrift stores and enjoy today. I've found that with a little patience, you can find true high fidelity speakers from the best brands, and though they may need some TLC, I think the results are worth it.

Guide for replacing foam surrounds:
http://www.instructables.com/id/How-t...
This is a decent guide, but I'd like to ad that removing the dust cap and shimming the voice coil isn't strictly necessary. If the driver's spider is intact, the dust cap should remain perfectly centered. It is easy to get replacement dust caps, but if your speakers have decorative or interesting driver designs (like the translucent cones in the Infinity RS-2000) you might want to try leaving the dust cap as it is.

Rich Brian shows more personality than many of his contemporaries on his debut project, but his sound is a bit too one-note to satisfy in a full-length context.

Say Hello to My "Little Fwend"
Analog Planet


Published on Feb 6, 2018
Decade's worth of end-of-record auto arm lifters have been distilled into this smooth operator from Scandinavia. Three models are available, designed for different turntables. Machining, packaging and instructions are first class as is the price: $249. But what's your stylus worth? If $79, okay, this is not for you. For a list of compatible turntables visit http://www.littlefwend.com/list-of-co... and see full review on analogPlanet.com

Published on Feb 5, 2018
Welcome to the A-Side for February 2018, where I'm going to talk about albums coming out this month that excite me and tell you about what vinyl records I'm expecting to receive or buy before the month ends. For a recap of the month, you're going to want to flip over to the B-Side at the end of the month.

Published on Feb 12, 2018
A lot of functionality in a compact unit with mediocre quality and a budget price.
