Bob Marley & The Wailers - Uprising - 1980 Island German pressing

Great record and pressing, but the star of this show is My Thorens TD 124 MKII. I was gifted this wonderfull TT by a coworker who thought, Klaas will enjoy this more than I do! :-)

It cost me some money to get it working properly again, and I wouldn’t try to do it myself with such a engineering masterpiece.. Honestly, the second hand price of this 50 year old thing seemed ridiculous to me a few weeks ago! now I know why!

This turntable sounds better than anything I have at home, with good sounding dynamic albums. The new Arcade Fire, The National, and lots of other things.. not so special.. with good Jazz pressings, good Pink Floyd pressings, the New Soulwax.. everything dynamic, it is just a wonder.. I get details out of recordings that I did’t expect to get with these speakers.. source is another very big part of the chain..:-)

Chord Mojo - Sennheiser HD 6XX

I’m a vinyljunkie at heart! Let that be clear, but as you all know, it’s impossible to get everything on vinyl, because of availability and the sometimes ridiculous pricing of some releases..
So digital is necessary if it’s about the music!! :-)

And I love my Chord Mojo. (that’s a Dac/Headphone amp) Such a fun little device! so versatile and easy to use, combined with great sound for not to much money!
I use it for my phone, tv, cd player, computer for music and watching movies.. and it makes everything a more enjoyable experience because of its great soundstage, dynamics, engaging sound!! brilliant!

I was seduced by the internet chatter to get me a Sennheiser HD 6XX, “best headphone for 200$ bar non” It”s actually a slightly modified HD650. Unfortunately the import taxes made it a lot more expensive, so no more American purchases.. and before things got through sometimes/often, now everything is checked and double checked.. why would that be??
but how is the headphone you ask?.. well super! very pleasant sound, very open, not harsh (unlike my DT770 in comparison) dynamic, very comfortable! It’s an open back headphone, so for home use. And they are not easy to drive, (300 Ohm) but the Mojo is brilliant for that! :-) •
that’s my sermon for these products! :-)
checking new Music on spotify and watching The world Cup with a half eye (as they say in flemish)!:-)

STR-DN1060 this is what happened after a year plus on my clean shelf?... Inside this Receiver, the processing board is covered with a layer of dust... This layer of dust can absorb moisture from surrounding air... The trapped moisture can be electically conductive and damaging ultra sensitive signal processing board... Montly Cleaning routine is esential.

Got a few score records this evening! #lovemyvinyl #audiophileonabudget #gimmesomemore

Today's critical listening is @chicagotheband second album (known as Chicago II but actually just named Chicago) remixed by @stevenwilsonhq. This album is, in my view, an American prog rock classic. The horn section, Terry Kath guitar, and the way the band's brass section came together, represents the perfect blue print for jazz infused Rock. Listening through @samson_technologies SR850 and a "vintage" @philipssound jogproff CD player.

Sevdaliza - Ison - 2017.

I learned about her through a dance video by Galen Hooks. She used ‘Human’ to dance very robotlike to the track..(really an interesting video) The dance fits the track wonderfully and it made me interested in her, but only listened to that track. I never came across the album in my favourite recordstores and kinda forgot about her. Until I found it a few weeks ago in a sale.. :-)

What a beautiful album! much like FKA Twigs, Tsar B.. breathy vocals with heavy baselines, everything stripped, so every sound, hit, bass note is intens.. the mix and mastering is done superbly, there are very cool effects used on her voice that give the tracks an alien feel sometimes.. brilliant work..

The light was s*** when I took the picture, but that was a good thing, the covert is very shiny so with good light, it acts like a mirror..:-) but I also wanted to show my vinyl setup once again, because that makes a big difference with records like this one! Old Technics 1210 that been through the wars but still works fine, Nagaoka MP110 Cartridge, Schiit Mani Phono stage, Linear Power Supply Unit by Swagman Lab in Hongkong!! Talk about synergie, those cheapish components sound magical in my system.. Cheapish.. Technics is at least 20 years old, so ‘payed off’, the 3 other were about 150€ each.. I still thing that’s ok, considering the result.. My Chord Mojo costs more.. also a magical thing!

Slowly slowly... having had a really hard time finding a good design for this part of the install.

Small improvement of the audiosystem in the family car. Mitsubishi Grandis: stock head-unit, Helix PP50DSP, Rainbow Germanium 6,5” 2-way kit,Helix PP 7S-D subwoofer, STP damping material. Good enough system for wife & the kids... 😉😍 #audiophileonabudget #sq #caraudio #mitsubishigrandis #mitsubishigrandiscommunity #helixpp50dsp #rainbowgermanium #rainbowcaraudio

Audiophile Linear PSU (Power supply unit) (Swagman Lab HongKong.) for the Schiit Mani Phono Pre-Amp.. @swagman_lab
I am an Audiophile.. OK, I’ve said it outloud.. and for a while (years) I thought that to get better sound at home, I needed to buy new speakers and amplifier. I started to research what to buy, and began to understand that I might change the sound in many different and cheaper ways.. Steve Gutenberg was ravenous about The NAD c316 bee amp, and I found the c326 (it’s bigger brother) for a good deal, and waw, what a difference it made to my old B&W DM630i speakers!!

So what more? cables, did a small upgrade, but that wasn’t it..
Spikes under the speakers.. damn what a change, tighter bass!!
Stylus: Ortofon 2M Blue, waw, ok try another.. Nagaoka MP110: waw again!!:-)
Phono stage.. My old dj mixer from allen and heath sounds ok, but what does a separate phono stage do? Schiit Mani gets raving reviews and is cheap.. so lets try: waw .. together with the Nagaoka, killer combination! It’s the transport I listen to all the time: cd with Chord Mojo, Ortofon 2M Blue, computer: nothing else sounds this engaging to my ears.

Fast forward 4 months and several hours of further research, and some people on the web say that the Mani is even better with a better power supply.. because of the strange voltage -16- there is only one that supplies this, Swagman Lab in Hongkong.. It’s not that expensive so I take the gamble..
It arrived today and again I’m surprised at how different my system can sound while still using those same speakers.
The PSU changes the bass, the imaging, there is more detail..
Sohn and Nils Fram sounded richer and more beautiful.. I do have the feeling that it accentuates the quality of the recording more, bad recording, bad sound..

It is actually very dificult to make cool and good pictures of a grey and black box in evening light.. but I wanted to share the story so..

Working on the cover panels for the trunk. Drilling holes for the wiring around the amps and I also mounted protective bars for the sub. Slowly getting there... #audiophileonabudget #diycaraudio #handmade #caraudiofab #carstereo #newbeetle #newbeetleturbo #caraudio

Time for a cover-up story! 😉 Started fabricating a cover for the amprack out of mdf...trying to create a design that will be a complete contrast to the design of the car. #caraudiofab #audiophileonabudget #carstereo #caraudio #newbeetle #newbeetleturbo #soundqualitycaraudio #handmade #diycaraudio #caraudio

I’m more and more falling in love with my Technics 1210 MKII, Nagaoka MP 110, Schiit Mani combo.. cheap and cheerfull as they say!! Ok, the Technics was not cheap, but I have it more than 20 years now, so it was a ‘good’ investment! :-) the Magaoka is about 150€, the schiit Mani was about the same with shipping (here in Europe, US is cheaper) and it is the best sounding part of my setup! beats the Ortopfon 2M blue Allen & Heath dj mixer combo, sounds better then my professional Steinberg UR28M sound card I use to do editing work.. or my Chord Mojo (I Love that thing!!) There is something in the sound of the Schiit/Nagaoka that makes me listen to that turntable all the time!

Really weird and challenging day, so let's bring out the big guns... Dorothy Ashby - Afro-Harping first through the Beyer Dynamic DT 990 Pro then, the whole album again on the AKG K550 MK3... If that can't redeem the day, shit can't be redeemed... I suspect the AKG will take it, due to system synergy... #audiophileonabudget #hifi #musiclover #dorothyashby #afroharping #akg #beyerdynamic

Finally got the correct banana plugs for the amplifier end! I'm not one who believes they enhance sound quality. However, they do increase sound quality indirectly: now I can easily experiment with speaker position in my room, with total plug 'n' play freedom #audiophileonabudget #hifi #waketheneighbors #gearenthusiast

Me and my new AKG K550 Mk 3s are at that exciting 'getting to know you' stage... And they even understand that I haven't bought a new audiophile player to let them play with! I got my people to talk to their people yadda yadda and we've agreed that they gonna work with my phone for a few days while I audition some kit... They actually making my phone sound half decent! Of course, that could just be Kenny Dope Soul Trippin' mixtape... #audiophileonabudget #audiophile #hifi #KennyDope #SoulTrippin #AKG #soul #raresoul

This is the player I was listening to this evening at Bloomsbury Richer Sounds. My initial feeling is that it's probably the best sound quality I've ever heard from any system: although I haven't listened to super hi end kit... I'm planning to do lots of listening (to other kit) over the next week or so before I choose one. Buy in haste, repent at leisure and all that... #AstellKernAK70MkII #audiophileonabudget #hifi #soundquality #portablemusicplayer

Installing the headunit in to the stock place in the New Beetle was no plug ’n play operation.

Testing out the "new" #optonica amp I got on eBay. It sounds great! Unfortunately the lamps don't come on when it power's on, so I got to open it up and see what i can do about that before I replace my current amp with this one #vintageHiFi #audiophileonabudget <-😂 #hifi

Rsd black Friday?? Not really, I checked the list, and there is so much other stuff I want a lot more.. But to celebrate RSD, I dug up this Pinback LP! The first Pinback album was not released on vinyl when it came out. For 15th aniversary they did a 2014 RSD vinyl release in the Us, 2000 copies..
I was able to buy a copy for 30$ a week after.. so happy I did!! Swipe to see why!:-) this makes it my most special RSD record, the Beta Band 3 ep’s are also special, but got new releases later, So not that hard to find anymore.. this Pinback is Very limited.. About the album, Pinback started as a home recorded side project of Rob Crow and Armisted Burwel smith IV. And it sound lo fi, simple, yet very beautifull, super bass playing, catchy hooks.. I just love it immensly! And it is one of those bands/albums that bring back memories of Casa Bong, such a great time in our lives!!:-) #nowspinning #Pinback #thisisapinbacklp #thisisapinbackpost #robcrow #lofi #rsd #vinyl #vinylart #vinylcollector #vinylcollection #vinylgram #musicman #livingroomstudio #technics1210mk2 #xone4d #bowersandwilkins #audiophileonabudget

I was reading online about headphones, because I am thinking of buying a new one.. hifi, over ear, open.. a different flavor than the ones I use allmost daily.. Senheisser HD 25-1 (on ear closed) and Beyer Dynamic DT 770 pro (250 Ohm with limiter) (over ear closed) work gave me this one. Half the radio stations around the World uses this one.. both Very good, both very professionals oriented.. Then I thought: lets compare all the headphones I have.. and I actually found 6 cans.. oeps.. Some I just forgot I had.. After long testing, Right is best, left worst
1. Beyerdynamic: wins because of comfort, sound is different, but I really like both!
2. Senheisser HD 25-1 my 10 year old trusted dj headphone, changed the pads twice allready, feels like a new headphone after it!
3. Senheisser Amperior, bought this Very cheap, but unfortunatly cable doesn’t connect perfectly.. sounds punchier, but not better then The old HD 25.. 4. senheisser Momentum 1.0, this is a headphone for mobile use, not that bad, gonna sell this I think.
5. Senheisser HDJ 8, top model of a new dj range that I got as a birthday gift when I was 40.. Very expensive and beautifull gift from my closest friends, chose it looking at the spec sheets.. couldn’t hear the frequencies I need to mix properly.. doesn’t get used that much.. 6. Wesc Bongo Studio Brussels.. looks super duper.. sounds crap.. sorry if I afend owners.. So now I would like over ear, open headphones Next, up to 1000€, Any sugestions?:-)

We sell a lot of Michell Engineering Gyro SE turntables, with various arms and cartridges. They offer upgrades and big improvements in sound quality because of these upgrades. However, it is dear and in certain instances the budget required is too high for certain users. Their Tecnodec is better value for money and still retains a large degree of the sound offered by the Gyro SE, but in a simpler package and a lower price. The most logical arm partner is usually a Rega RB202 or RB303, but it will quite happily accept their own Tecno A arm because of the tone arm base, and the compatibility of the mounting hole. These are beautifully styled turntables with unique looks, excekkent performance and a definite Wow Factor. A real fit-and-forget solution of substance. Give it a soid and stable mounting, plug in and go!

Ortofon 2M blue! Playing: Editors - An end has a start! Installed the new cartridge, and instantely there is more detail and better stereo image.. and it takes 30 hours to be optimal.. me happy! Crazy how much better my old B&W 630's sound with the upgrades I made recently!! Editors tonight because I just went to the benifite concert they played for @stubru at @abconcerts! Great concert!! In Belgium @editorsofficial is a 'big' band, headlining festivals, So to see them in a 2000 people concerthal! 😎👍🏼❤️Magic vibe, great night!! #vinyl #vinylgram #vinyladdict #editors #anendhasastart #ortofon2mblue #technics1200mk2 #audiophile #audiophileonabudget #happy

Time to test my new pair of IEM's I purchased from AliExpress. These IE800 from Tennmak look impressive and are made from ceramic. Comes with a case & a generous amount of silicone tips, but I prefer to use my own memory foam tips as they improve the sound quality.
I already own the Pro & Piano models, & I've been very impressed with the sound & build quality of these reasonably priced Chinese IEM's. 😁🎧 #tennmak #ie800 #iem #iems #earphones #audio #audiophile #audiophileonabudget #music
