After much fussing, I have our turntable fully operable. It’s amazing what the crackle of vinyl adds and subtracts from the listening experience. I swear that it was bar for the course to get better dynamic range off the grooves than that I hear today, but maybe thathas to do with a few years of gigging in front of amps. Who knows. Hearing the crackle is delicious and organic, each side my own and known by skips at learned places in the song.
