The good old Pro-Ject record player had to be replaced due to problems with the wiring – repair or buy a new one? I wouldn’t have actually bought a new one, but since it’s for Mother Earth, I made the investment. I am now very happy with it, the new Rega player is simply brilliant. New straightwire cables, Pro-Ject Record Cleaner (man, I needed that) and the absolute hit: a DC filter. If this is new to you, let me just say: you want one. Believe me. I didn’t go for the Inakustik AC-4500 mains filter, which is already working in Christian’s High End Audio Lab and which we all know from the amazing recordings on the show, but I’m very happy with the Supra MD-08 MkIII DC filter I got with the other new stuff. It needs a few weeks to warm it up and get it dialed in and ready to provide Mother Earth with great music (yes, that’s necessary) – and then I’ll start recording classical records – the classical channel needs it the most.
So that’s how we spend our time here on Mother Earth, it’s demanding. Thank you for joining us, if you like it and have a few euros to spare, please go to the donation page and support our work and time. Best regards from Munich, Florian
