For a new, sealed record it has horrible pops n clicks throughout. Hopefully  it will clean up.


Any chance that could be related to the earlier issues you were discussing?   Are you absolutely certain of the quality of the ground signal on your table?   A bad ground can cause all kinds of headaches.

Nope, this is just one of those not so great quality records. It happens. It's in the 'to be cleaned' stack along with a few others.

As for the noise issue, I swapped out the Furman the vinyl rig was on and that seemed to help. I'm still having random issues when powering the system up and down. Sometimes I get a thud or pop when I turn the Furman on (with pre and amp off) and again after I turn it off (amp off first, then pre). Using an outlet tester everything checks out ok. The amp has a ground lug, but I didn't connect it to anything...yet.

I ordered a Audio Technica AT630 SUT so I can test using the moving coil table into my MM pre which has a much quieter noise floor than the JD9, the JD9 hisses like crazy and I never found the culprit. Once the SUT arrives I'll test it out and see what happens, maybe the JD9 gets put somewhere else or out to pasture.

If at some point you want to test that Jolida in another system/environment, I'd be happy to give it a test drive for a while.   That could be fun.

I don't have the hiss problem with my original JD9... quiet as can be. I did replace the op amps in mine to good effect, but even with the originals had no hiss.

Does any of the gear in the signal chain have a three prong plug?  If so, try lifting the ground.  Although I usually try ground lifts with hum problems, one never knows.

I guess it was a good day to go to the Buy the Pound. I just got this nice little system for ten bux. HK PM660, HK TU615 and JBL L40s. Reviews of the stuff seem to indicate pretty high quality.   All untested, but at that price...

This was supposed to be in Shoutbox, not Listening, if some mod wants to move it.

It's certainly worth more than you paid for it.  Nice score!

Rediscovered this album today. I forgot what a fantastic album and recording it is. You owe it to yourself to give it a listen or re listen!

The Kinks - Misfits

I've never heard it before other than Rock and Roll Fantasy.   It's okay.

Went down to the Attic today. Been on the hunt for psychedelic rock and similar things.
This was on my list. Funny thing is this was in a trade that walked in the door. Very happy to have found this.  :)

I've never heard of it and wouldn't have even known what I was looking at.   That said, anyone who does rock versions of Edvard Grieg compositions is all right with me.
