Turntables and tape machines, the audio equivalent of a fireplace. Look nice, but the snap, crackle, and pop can be bothersome. 

If the record is cleaned, the snap crackle and pop is gone, don't hear it. This would be noticed if there was a dedicated Turntable section at AS.

 Nice, a Michell Gyrodeck SE. I used to have one of those. Sold it in a weak moment. Wish every day that I hadn’t! Great record deck. But I don’t recognize the motor. Is it from the Michell Orb? Also, your suspension towers are not stock either (unless, in the ensuing years, JA Michell changed from springs to rubber bands). Mine had the Jelco SA-750 arm and the Grado Reference Signature cartridge. Best record deck ever. Don’t ever sell yours! You’ll regret it.

Saw these at the lighthouse museum on Whitefish Point, MI (Lake Superior).  At least the lighthouse keepers had good tunes!

 

Edison Standard Phonograph ca. 1901 and RCA AR-812 Radiola Super Heterodyne radio ca. 1924 both in mint condition (sorry for iPhone pics).

Wow! That’s the earliest superhet I’ve ever encountered. I wondered why the receiver had only two dials. Most radios, from that era, are TRF, and have multiple, interactive tuning dials. One for each RF amplifier stage. TRF made it a nightmare to tune in a station! I like the speaker too. Good “tone”, I expect!🙂

No, it's on my Cheney Talking Machine acoustic record player - no electricity as the acoustic horn amplifies the vibrations of the needle.

 

We may be forced to go back to gear like that when it gets too hot on this planet x-D


The man that hath no music in himself, nor is not moved with concord of sweet sounds, is fit for treasons, stratagems, and spoils. The motions of his spirit are dull as night, and his affections dark as Erebus. Let no such man be trusted. Mark the music.

not invented before electricity but before it was widespread (and also eliminates all the EMF smog issues)

 

sorry about the darkness in the photo - it looks a lot better on Lightroom

I couldn't help but like this. My name is Forrest too, and I also live in Grand Rapids!  :)

It's sorta amazing that it works at all, let alone how close they came with a notion this early in the development of the medium. Regardless of where one falls on the vinyl vs CD debate, the fact there is a debate is a win for vinyl.

Groovy. 😊


I have dementia. I save all my posts in a text file I call Forums.  I do a search in that file to find out what I said or did in the past.

 

I still love music.
