I've been sitting here this morning enjoying a coffee and listening to one of my latest vinyl acquisitions, Jason Isbell's "Southeastern" and I'm thinking, wow, how good is this and how fortunate am I, to be able to enjoy this exceptional album on equipment that actually allows me to hear every nuance of Isbell's performance.
The reproduction is stunning and I can highly recommend this album to you, particularly if you're a fan of the country/rock genre.
I am fortunate to be using the fabulous Soulines Kubrick DCX turntable and fitted with what I feel is one of the very best tonearms in the world today, the Brinkmann 10.5. I have fitted the Binkmann EMT ti phono cartridge to the 10.5 arm and this combination is one made in heaven, as these two work so beautifully together.
It is wonderful and a little surprising too, that after 48 years since I bought my own first vinyl album, that I am still able to enjoy the whole experience of playing a vinyl record and for me it is still by far my preferred source for my music.
Yes, Dave and I are vinyl enthusiasts, we honestly don't pretend to be anything other than that too and Wyndham Audio does have a focus or emphasis on vinyl related equipment for that reason. We love what we experience with our own vinyl reproduction in our own systems and we would like our customers and you, the vinyl buying public out there, to also enjoy the same level of playback that we do.
I'm convinced that the Slee phono preamps play a huge part in achieving the stunning reproduction that I'm experiencing here this morning. Slee's phono stages are if nothing else honest in their reproduction and they are designed to extract the very last bit of detail as laid down in those grooves at the time of recording.
I've been facilitating the Slee Loaner Program here in Australia for Graham now for many years and the loaner program allows you to trial most of his phono preamps in your system free of charge for up to three weeks at a time.
Anyhow, I'm going to get back to spinning a few more albums today, but if you're thinking about vinyl as I am right now and you think we may be able to help you get the very best out of your vinyl rig, don't hesitate to get in touch.
