        They had an opportunity there that could have marketed it so much better: "De-fenestrated sheep"

      Listening to Albert Aylers first recordings is an emotional experience. Forget Coltrane/Coleman, forget everything you've ever heard before

        Murfie.com has 1-year memberships for $49 if you join be the end of the year and part of the membership includes them taking your vinyl and digitizing it. May be worth looking into even with the overseas shipping if the other guys are charging that much.

        What Turntable?

        Well, you are going to be listening to the results for ever more, so, one that you would want to listen to anyway. I'd argue (many would disagree) that your digitised results (sans noise you manage to get rid of) can and should sound like the source turntable/pre-amp.

        But, whether you agree with that or not, you are freezing that reproduction in your FLAC files. So you are going to have to want to listen to it :)

        @DigMe In terms of DEK I think Elisabeth Harnik is just FANTASTIC. I feel she takes control and runs with her ideas and manages to get the other two to join her in what I hear as almost manic runs over the piano. There's a sense of urgency that I really enjoy on all three albums.

        @DigMe Also, the way Didi Kern goes within the music and then steps out of it to go in a different direction is just exciting to follow.
        But I'd say most essentially I love the unexpected, and these three albums are packed with just that.

        Indeed. But his work on Blue Note needs to be seen in the light of what was and what was to come. If I'm not mistaken they got a Grammy for the live albums they did in Sweden (Live at the Golden Circle, vol1 -2.)
        Check out James Blood Ulmers album with Ornette; Tales Of Captain Black. That's some great great music

        I need to listen to the Live at The Golden Circle albums again. Last time I was listening to them I wasn't feeling the energy. Coulda just been me. I have them both. The Shape of Jazz to Come is probably one of my all time fave jazz studio albums though I don't believe that was Blue Note.

      So...I know you're traveling, but curious about which plugin you prefer: NX or CanOpener? I'm assuming NX, but I hope you can hear how much coloration there is next to CanOpener.

        CanOpener sounds great, but I also get infrequent dropouts/stutter/clicks when I have it turned on. It's not remotely a limitation of my PC (which is completely overpowered). I prefer it to Waves NX otherwise.

        Sorry to hear about the dropouts. I haven't experience them on Mac in DAWs or in Audio Hijack (which reroutes application audio). Haven't used on Windows. Sorry. I'd encourage you to contact the developer so they can improve it. @Luckbad glad you like it!

        She also has a pub suggestion. Grafton Arms on Grafton Way, although she hasn't been there for a while. There are also lots of little restaurants of all kinds on Charlotte Street.

        It's because 2.5mm trrs is a pain to use. I was thinking of making myself one, but looks so small.

    I'm an avid jazz fan and passionate CD collector that came through the gates of HellFi, spent all my $$$ on USB, went very deep into praising just about everything, writing reviews, buying the stuff and the shit......until one day I just couldn't do it anymore.

    I'm traveling all around Europe for work so feel free to reach out, I'd be happy to meet up for coffee or conversations about jazz and life and jazzlife and lifejazz.
