  • Sounded to me like there was too m,uch treble with those speakers. Either that's something with the amp or the tweeters are not properly balanced with the woofers. I once had a linear tracking turntable that used an optical sensor to detect the record size. It would not work at all with transparent records for obvious reasons.

  • Re: copyright claims. You could always use freeware/open source music , at least when it's a digital format or if you buy some in vinyl form. You could buy a few to use regularly. Also, I'm told that a lot of claims are from bogus groups that seek to appear real to essentially steal royalty fees, so keep an eye on the claimant.

  • Auna (the brand of the speakers) is notoriously known for making EXTREMELY bad car audio components. I mean REALLY EXTREMELY bad. As bad as it can ever get. So I am not suprised.

  • What this matter of copyright-strikes on 3 seconds of video shows is there's rampant corruption in high places, and that the elected officials aren't doing what's best for the people, they're simply listening to what the big corporations tell them, and taking that as some sort of gospel truth. It is about elected officials forgetting that first and foremost, they're the servants of the general population of citizens who elected them, and they're violating that trust by tilting so hard towards the big corporations. Times are changing, though, and more and more people are getting fed up with the corruption both of the elected officials (many of whom got there by cheating, that is, the election was rigged by other powerful people) and of the big corporations (many, many of whom are long, LONG overdue for trust-busting), and both of these powerful-but-corrupt forces are going to face their day of reckoning. My GUT feeling is these sorts of insane copyright-strikes (3 seconds? are you freaking KIDDING ME?!?) are going to go the way of the dodo bird, because once the revolution comes, the laws will probably change very much more in favor of what's best for the individual citizen... because after all the corrupt ones are forced out of power en masse, the ones who are elected to replace them are either going to consist of those who got fed up with the garbage policies like this one, or are going to consist of those who are terrified of going against what the common people want, because they just SAW what happened to the corrupt ones who got removed from power.

  • Loving the deck. I've got the SL-j3 from a charity shop for £20 a few years back, which I think is a slightly older model. It has all the same functions and looks almost identical ( though mines dark grey). I've never managed to get the trick play functions to work properly and now the cueing button doesn't always work. It's a lovely thing to have though.

  • Damn. Something happened after I bought my SL-DL5 in the middle 80’s… This must obviously be a later model (SL-6…). I loved my SL-DL5 for exactly the features you demonstrate here: Toss in the record, close the lid, and hit "play". At the end, the pick-up returns to start & the record stops spinning. If you open the lid, the tone arm just returns to start. I hated the regular record players where you had to carefully position the needle above the record and pray you hit the record and not outside or in the middle of track 1…

  • Those speakers powered in that they have an amp built-in but hey are not active. Active refers to how frequencies are divided be it passively or electronically (active). The divided frequencies in an active system is driven by seperate amps/section. As a rule if it isn't (at least) biamped it isn't active.

  • I really enjoyed your video it's funny how you talk about people who sue for using there song. I was in a band for many years and we would improvise new sounds to Old/ Odd films. The Films had to be in in Public Domain so we can up load our music w/ the video to US-vision. I had some music we did a video & it got Band from US-vision and cuz it had the name Francis Ford Coppola in the Intro part of the video I used so I had to edit it out. Even a coffee house I used to do an open mic in had a sign on the back wall & it said "please refrain from doing cover tunes do original Tunes only" the owner told me it cost more to get a license to let people play cover tunes then I make in a year running this place.. So I need to know how do you compare a linear track turntable to let's say my Dual 506 Do you think the Linear is better Just wondering. I did like the Red speakers better. I think smaller is better I have 2 small JBL book shelf speakers & 2 Big Altec Lansing series 9 speakers they sound OK but they take up room.. back in the day my friends would say you got these huge gigantic speakers they must sound great then when I heard these little ones would say these are better.. & one other thing what if your 12" record is at a 45 speed will that play it at 45 or 33 I mad that mistake quite a few time with stuff inmy collection so now I wright 45 speed on the inside jacket sleeve so I know.

  • This is why I chose not to opt in to US-vision monetization when publishing "Show Me the Sign". Copyright claims would have been auto-pursued by the publishing/distribution service without input from the copyright holders i.e., me and the band. Copyright protection on US-vision and the mainstream internet in general is out of control, and it's bad for collaboration, bad for criticism, and bad for exposure. Thanks for all you do, Mat, and I hope you haven't had any DMCA issues with the previous video. I hope you're enjoying the record!

  • What a blast from the past! I saw one of these for $39 at a shop not too long ago, or maybe it was the mentioned Q? Regardless, for turntablism minded DJs, this covered and overly automated design won't make do. And unlike the ELPJ a linear tracking head. Still gives the vinyl wear, which is why folks spend so much for laser pickups, not because they wish to overspend, it's a form of respect to the dead. Though perhaps these could be taken and by a horologic hardware hacker it might be ideal to modify? With a new laser pickup? Though someone would have to do a lot of R&D to make it so much more fly.

I noticed the amazon screen shots for the red speakers had a "speedy delivery alert" banner on the top of the page indicating a late 2017 delivery date, meaning those files have been kicking around for a year and a half before this video was assembled.

  • I loved my first Technics SL turntable so much that I upgraded to a quartz drive instead of replacing the belt when it wore out. One limitation is playing warped records. They tend to rub against the lid and cause a noticeable slow down every rotation. I get around this by removing the rubber mat and placing the record directly on the metal turntable. Glad to see such a glowing review!

  • please bring back telling us the song titles. the copyright thing was a claim that means that ray parker jr is getting the money from that clip. so if you dont care about monetization (monetization is just a second play money income not a main making a living off income) then you could continue telling us the tracks. other option you could do is if you have your own web site you could list the songs there . you can also set up an automated email responder that we make subject the video id of the video and then the body is songs or something and the responder would reply back with the name. you could also just show the covers and we can look them up our self. also that claim is frivolous an abuse of the copyright system you could also post a version of the video that does have the song titles on tpb there only child abuse, malware, fakes are taken down yes you will need a good dmca resistant seedbox so you dont get copyright notices to your isp
