I get 5 gal containers of it for $50 from Optical Planet.

I don't clean a record every time I play it, but if it has never been cleaned it gets at least the 3-step and a fresh MoFi inner sleeve before I play it.
Cool - thanks. Audible benefit to eg L'Art de Son?

I don't know. I haven't tried, L'Art de Son. AIVS does the job, it gets the dirt off and leaves nothing behind. That's good enough for me. I doubt I could determine an audible resulting difference between one competent cleaner and another. I'm not even sure how I could test that.

L'Art du Son is for the lazy like me - one dose on and off: no rinsing.
I like the idea of AI but not the work ha ha...

Thanks Tim
Great article. Will explore...usual story though, the tyranny of distance makes shipping expensive. In the past I have used TTVJ's enzyme cleaner on the old stuff and L'Art de Son. Sigh...sounds like I need to rinse....

As an aside don't you just hate an LP that has obviously been cut from a CD version....listening to one now that is so squashed its almost unlistenable. Very disappointed. Not classical so won't post it here. Doubt if there are too many Tool fans in this thread

Well said, Tim! I couldn't have said it any better, so I won't try.

Following up on the Ma discussion, I only have a disc, or two, (one with Bobby McFerrin, I think!), but I've never felt compelled to explore further. However, the chat did prompt me to continue my tour of JDP's box set:

Currently in the tray: Jacqueline Du Pre - The Complete EMI Recordings (Disc 8)

Beethoven: Piano Trio No. 1 in E flat
Beethoven: Piano Trio No. 2 in G
Beethoven: 14 Variations in E flat

While I don't know these (or any) pieces well enough to analyze the technical proficiency with which they were played, I can say that I get a sense of involvement between cellist and music when I listen to this set. I suppose it's best described by saying that the cello, to me, has feeling when I hear her play it, and I guess that's why I continue to say that this box set has become a prized possession of mine.

Happy Easter Gentlemen... and to those who don't observe, I trust you'll have a wonderful Sunday

A recent discussion came up within these hallowed forum walls concerning the Musical Heritage Society. I received a small number of discs through that campaign many years ago. Wanting some Handel this morning, I was browsing the shelves and happened upon this MHS collection of Handel's works as arranged by a few other notable scholars (see cover art). While the SQ on this disc is less than that of say a Linn or Channel, it is nonetheless entirely listenable with wonderful performances by the Royal Philharmonic.

If you click on the graphic, note the rather humorous disparity between the asking price for new versus used

I'll listen to this disc as we prepare to journey north a few hours to meet with the wife's side of the family for dinner and light discussion (and let us hope no family drama )

Again - I wish you all a wonderful day!





p.s. A brief search did not yield any audio samples, but here's the track listing fwiw.
