    Be careful installing the cart. In fact, if you're worried at all about fucking it up, it might be better to pay someone to install it on your tonearm for you.

    I've got the turntable all good to go.. It's more the pre-amp and speakers set-up that's confusing me the most. Which is dumb because I feel like that's probably the easiest part?

    I've never used a separate preamp before (my amp has one built in) but I always thought the preamp just went into any old RCA input on the amp.

    Are you having trouble connecting the speaker wire?

    Looks like The Knife finally released copies of Deep Cuts and their self titled album on vinyl. Ordered them on Amazon.

    This should be pretty straightforward. You're running it all through a receiver? Preamp should have RCAs that you plug into the Aux. input. Done and done.

    Yep, preamp should be simple. Red and white from reciever to pre-amp and red and white from pre amp to turntable. Speakers should connect direct to your reciever.

    yeah me too. the album is probably my 2nd favorite of the year only to My Bloody Valentine's new one. man, i'd love to see them at Coachella next year. they're building up a lot of hype on the tour they've been on all year along with their album being in record stores now, so i think they're definitely big enough. the big concern is fitting that whole name on the poster lol.

    Ok I hope this isn't too much of an idiotic question.... I have a turntable (music hall mmf. 2.2) a phono pre-amp (musical fidelity vlps90) and speakers (audioengine 2). That's all I need right?

    I ended up getting it hooked up but it's not sounding right (humming, distortion) so I know I did something wrong. I'm just gonna call Needle Doctor tomorrow and have them walk me through it when I have more time.

    ^ That was my first thought too - maybe the tonearm weight is off as well?

    I just pre-ordered:

    White Fence - Live in San Francisco (clear vinyl with lenticular cover)

    I'm still not sure because I'm waiting on a friend to get his schedule for next week. Either in SD or LA though. It's during the weekend so it's perfect.

    Sorry I don't know where to post this but.....wow

    The Kitchen Table owned by Ian Curtis the singer of Joy Division

    http://www.nme.com/news/joy-division/73689

    May the 18th 1980 Ian Curtis the singer of Joy Division took his own life in the Kitchen of the house he lived in with his wife Debbie at 77 Barton Street.

    Debbie Curtis then sold the house and many of its contents to a neighbour Dorothy Smith who then ran it as a B and B.

    In 1996 the table was passed to Dorothy's Daughter Vicky Morgan when she got married and set up home in Macclesfield.

    In December 2005 the Morgan's were redecorating and felt that the table no longer fitted in with their own home. They offered the table back to the family and contacted them via Marco of Joy Division Central.

    With the filming of Control taking place in Barton Street and Natalie Curtis arranging the props the table was offered but was declined.

    Natalie Curtis, Ian and Debbie's daughter was then going to take the table for her own flat but in the end decided to have one of her mums instead which belonged to her Grandmother.

    At that point it went on Ebay and I travelled to Macclesfield after winning the bid.

    Control then went on general release and the Legend Grew.

    Included with the Table are confirmation of authenticity from Natalie Curtis, Debbie Curtis, Marco from Joy Division Central and Vicky Morgan. Also there is a four page print from a web site with pics taken inside 77 Barton Street when it was a B and B and a picture of Dorothy Smith.

    The Measurements are:-

    75 cm Wide
    98 cm Long
    76 cm Tall
    Extend Flaps 28 cm each.

    I easily got this table into my car, which if you have a 5 door car with seats that go down anyone else with a reasonable size car should do also.

    It can be shipped abroad, but the bidder must arrange packing etc and cost themselves as I cant be arsed.

    The Table is in my office but have used the original listing pic.

    Clearly this table is a unique item and I have put a reserve on the Table which I think reflects its true worth.

    If it doesn't sell I will merely keep it.

    Bid with Confidence, any questions just ask.

    The Knife s/t and Deep Cuts are both on glorious 180 Gram vinyl. It's like a slice of heaven. Also they both come with lyric sheets and now I am realizing I have sang many parts of the s/t album wrong since 2006. haha

    So I was putting some copies of Kill Em All away at work and discovered a copy of Psychocandy randomly placed among them. Thanks, WEA, for sending the completely wrong record that also happens to be one of my all-time favorites. AND I didn't own it on vinyl yet. Boom.

    LP:
