  6. glad to see you active again. but regarding your activity, please, be careful.
    you write "Recovering rather better @ home!!"
    i believe, it's true. so it was with my late mom after her first strike.
    but, please, be careful with [excessive] physical activity, and beware of probable painful spasms.

    and, anyway, lot of thaks for the work done and results shared.

    1. My fingers are still numb-ish @ the fingertips - but are now more mobile: 'flipping an LP' is rather hazardous..as is cleaning the stylus..am using the Cecil Watts design (part of the HiFi Parastat - first time in over 40years) - RH - instead of a much bigger 'Duopad' LH.
      Using the various 'bits' encourages nerve regeneration (or so I hope) and am better the past few days (with no help/contact from any of the 'agencies').. but at least, because of my age, the drugs are free - rather a surprise!

    1. Actually; was going to take the opportunity (sic) to kill-off this 'BBC' alter-ego..but couldn't find the blogger logo I'd created for my frankwm moniker.
      Did these as there was still 'an interest' in the other Busch/s - and also didn't need to wet-clean them,,.but it'll be a short while(?) before my left hand is agile enough for that task - so the remainder of the Busch/Brahms may be along...

    2. I’m more of a lurker, simply stepping out to express good wishes. Now exposed, let me say that you do terrific technical and curatorial work and I think it is important work. So whether it be Tin Ear, frankwm, or Loretta, I hope you find this work satisfying, because this literature and these recordings need an advocate with your intensity and skill set. Cheers.

  10. Welcome Back! Wish you the best on your recovery.

  11. Thanks for those comments.
    BTW; am using a 'mid-range' Shure M97HE (new original stylus: have x10) in an SME 3009 Series III (as for the previous post) - the linear 2dB treble shelving-down from c.2kHz being corrected via Audacity.
    Presentation, due to the aluminium cantilever, is slightly 'softer' than the previous JVC X-1/Beryllium cantilever; but the Shure is obviously low distortion -especially the treble - so trust the transfers are acceptable (still have the x2 JVC X-1, if not - plus lots more never used..but this cartridge seems as good as a 'new' Shure V15-3 HE...)

    Best,

  14. Hopefully the blood-pressure/anti-clotting pills will 'do the trick' for several decades - but the following weeks/months will show if I suffered any permanent damage!

    1. Yep..quickly resumed my 'hamster on the treadmill' routine.
      The best performances (& original sound), IMO, are D887/929..I only have D810 as original 78's.
      Not sure if there will be any comments re: the transfer 'quality'.
      As hinted above, may soon do the remaining contents of the Brahms box (7LP's) ...but not all at once; hence don't wish to use an 'obviously inferior' setup (sounds fine to me; and had taken great care fitting the Shure cartridge - Black Tack headshell bonded..very tight ..stylus grip secured... also.SME's fancy counterweight had.all moving surfaces damped with silicon oil to prevent parasitic movement feeding back into the tube..tracks superbly @ 1.05 grams..

  17. It's grand to see that you feel up to editing some new files. Controlling and cleaning a stylus and doing all the various editing processes sounds like work that requires careful and accurate control. It seems a great form of exercise! I have downloaded these files but haven't had chance to hear them yet. Your Busch /Beethoven editions were splendid so I am looking forward to these. My best wishes for your continuing recovery.

    1. Most of the Busch/Beethoven used a JVC X-1; which digs out lots of detail - though is not totally cohesive right across the spectrum - this Shure mostly is: but maybe less analytic (but not really comparing like-with-like, as the Beethoven's, feasibly, were 'digital' - hard to be sure - but the previous Busch/Serkin post (again, an X-1 used) was definitely analogue.for the Schubert/Brahms.
      Anyway; only touting for some comments re: that aspect!

    1. Hello Graham,
      Not yet listened-to / transferred the Brahms box; will make a start today..some are with the later Quartet members, but I do trust these sound OK (even though the setup is better than most use, theoretically it isn't as good as I normally use for this blog)....hence was interested in any 'negative' comments.
