Hi Fi.

Not made any music posts for some time – here is one of my Jazz favourites.

My SME series III arm and Ariston Transcription turntable.

Got my UK Hi Fi running after many years of being in semi storage, Vinyl was not practical in Oman, if you could even buy any !
I now have my Quad amplifier and record deck playing again; gave it a good service as capacitors do not like long-term storage – some needed replacing as they have a nasty habit of exploding with a messy bang when old and not used.
I don’t only use film cameras, I also have analogue audio   🙂

  1. Sounds like you have beautiful vinyl set-up (turntable, amp and speakers).

    Mine: Rega Planar 3 w/Grado Reference Sonata… Focals… Rotel and Adcom pre-amp

    1. Ha, my other passion, Shure v15 III, v15 IV & a couple of Pickering cartridges also a modified Thorens td160 deck: my Revox reel to reel asked for a mention as well. 🙂

        1. Just had a look for info on the Grado you have, very nice, especially with Rega deck.
          My hope is that I can find a pair of early Quad valve amps (good price) that I can work on and ELS57’s electrostatics.
          None of tthis being possible in Oman, heck they thought I was (Majnoon) crazy using a Nikon ‘F’

    1. 1975 I think it was that I got the LP and now I have it as a FLAC file as well.
      Anothe jazz version of the concierto I like is by the LA Four but very hard to find these days.

  2. This is really a very beautiful rendition of the music. I remember listening to the same concerto many times in the 60s,.. maybe the version by Miles Davis. It brought me happiness this morning. Thanks.
