    200 Gram Vinyl


    Remastered From Original Analogue Masters


    Remastered on 200-gram, heavyweight vinyl at legendary Abbey Road Studios using the Direct to Metal Mastering (DMM) audiophile copper plating process, all from original analogue masters. Signals, originally released in 1982, marked the band's increase use of electronic instrumentation, especially sequencers and electric violin (played by Ben Mink). Peaking at #10 on the Billboard chart, Signals eventually went platinum. A total of five singles were released from Signals, including 'Subdivisions,' which became a live staple of their concerts, along with 'New World Man,' 'The Analog Kid,' 'The Weapon' and 'Countdown.'

    II

    II builds on the break-beat, junk-shop charm that Ruban Nielson, 32-year-old multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, came to be renowned for following his self-titled 2011 debut, and signals the solidification of Unknown Mortal Orchestra's position as an endlessly intriguing, brave psychedelic band. UMO is unafraid to dig deeper than the rest to lock into their intoxicating, opiate groove and bring rock'n'roll's exaggerated myths to life.

    Permanent Signal

    Permanent Signal: a condition in which a POTS [plain old telephone service] line is off-hook without
    connection for an extended period of time.*


    It's a term that Mauro Remiddi kept coming back to when reflecting on much of the time between last year's release of Strange Weekend, the multi-instrumentalist's debut full-length as Porcelain Raft, and this, its proper follow-up. "In a way, growing up in Italy, then living for 12 years in London, and now two-and-a-half years in New York, made me realize that I have some dear friends that I rarely see," explains Mauro. "I was touring almost non-stop for eight months and I started having these imaginary conversations in my head with people I wanted to communicate with, but for one reason or another it couldn't happen. So this idea of the album title comes with there being a signal that says the line is off."


    Mauro began working on Permanent Signal two months after returning from tour, a period of readjustment
    in which he was beginning to enjoy normal everyday comforts such as frequenting his favorite coffee spot in his Brooklyn neighborhood and connecting with friends again, even as the thoughts of those unrealized conversations during his recent travels were still very fresh in his mind. Inspired by this surreal moment of transition, where the reality of finally being home was still overshadowed by lingering feelings of detachment, he sold almost all of the instruments that he used for Strange Weekend in order to "start with a new color pallet." It's immediately apparent in Permanent Signal's opener, "Think of the Ocean," where the dense basement-recorded haze of his last full-length has been traded for a spacious melancholy, as cello, piano and drums gently spiral atop a faint pulsing tone that mirrors the album's title. And while layers of synths and electronics still play a role, the new record is far more organic than Porcelain Raft's previous album and EPs, an intentional move according to Mauro; "I wanted to record in the studio just to capture the guitars and drums properly, and to have some real input from musicians I respected and loved to hang with."


    Enlisting some support from YUCK's Jonny Rogoff on drums, Antlers bassist Darby Cicci (who also contributed double vocals and trumpet, and engineered the sessions in Antlers' Brooklyn studio), and cellist Gaspar Claus (frequent collaborator with Sufjan Stevens and the National's Bryce Dessner), Porcelain Raft's once gauzy pop has now turned as vivid as a waking dream. During "Minor Pleasure," Mauro finds catharsis when conceding in his otherworldly tenor that "there's nothing hidden in what we see, sometimes you just have to let it end," amidst the processed drone of an organ and a piano that taps into the gospel-dosed psychedelia
    of Spiritualized, while the radiant lull of "Night Birds" reaches cosmic bliss, as crystalline guitars and synthesizers echo the song's poignant sense of nostalgia. Elsewhere, tracks like the aforementioned "Think of the Ocean," "Cluster" and the haunting, Lennon-esque "I Lost Connection" deal directly with lives either on hold or in transition -- all universal themes of the human condition which allow the listener to fill in their own personal experiences with a permanent signal.

    Vinyl Check

    This record creates new possibilities of inspecting and adjusting record players. Most tests (except for frequency response) can also be carried out without measuring instruments, just by listening, and are therefore particularly well-suited for the ambitious music listener who wants to know how well his system deals with demanding signals under realistic conditions, and whether there is a need for repairs or improvements.


    Thanks to Albrecht Krieger for his ideas and advice.

    Ortofon Stereo Test Record

    Ortofon's new Test Record is designed to allow you to verify your HiFi system in the most natural audio surroundings at home. The Test Record contains special test signals developed for analyzing cartridge performance as well as its interaction with your tonearm and turntable.


    Before testing your cartridge, please verify the HiFi system's functionality. The left speaker should be connected to the left amplifier channel and vice versa; both speakers should work in phase and be optimally positioned in the room.
    The Test Record is designed to be played through your system with in-built RIAA equalization. Volume control is recommended to be set at a moderate signal level.


    Please refer to your turntable and tonearm's instructions for correct installation and alignment, adjust tonearm to be parallel to record surface, set Vertical Tracking Force and antiskating according to the cartridge's recommended technical data, and adjust stylus overhang.

    Each side of the record consists of 15 tracks which have been cut from 1-4 and 5-15:


    1. Frequency Sweep Left Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    2. Frequency Sweep Right Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    3. Frequency Sweep Left Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    4. Frequency Sweep Right Channel 800 Hz - 50 kHz. Log. 28 sec. Linear cut* (800 - 20000 Hz ±1,5 dB)
    5. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Left
    6. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Right
    7. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Left
    8. Reference tone 1000 Hz 5 cm/sec rms Right
    9. Tracking ability, lateral 50 m peak
    10. Tracking ability, lateral 60 m peak
    11. Tracking ability, lateral 70 m peak
    12. Tracking ability, lateral 80 m peak
    13. Tracking ability, lateral 90 m peak
    14. Tracking ability, lateral 100 m peak
    15. Square Wave Form 2.7 msec duty cycle 3:7
    * The record has a constant velocity amplitude throughout the sweep.


    1-4 Frequency sweep - a tool for checking frequency response
    There are several factors which can affect frequency response, including cable capacitance, cartridge loading, tracking force and worn parts. Because of this, it can be difficult to achieve perfectly flat frequency response. Sometimes by making small compromises in the cartridge loading, a better overall frequency response can be achieved. Considering the above the signal must be clean throughout the sweep.


    5-8 Reference tone for testing channel output
    With this standard reference signal is it possible to check the correctness of the connections of the left and right channels, channel balance and speed of the turntable.


    9 -14 Tracking ability test, 315 Hz lateral modulation
    These tracks contain a 315 Hz signal, recorded at increasing pick amplitudes of 50, 60, 70, 80, 90 and 100 micrometers. Please refer to your cartridge's tracking ability value specified in the technical data sheet. Your cartridge should be able to track the actual level without audible distortion. Inability to track can be heard as a departure from a pure tone or a sputtering and intermittent tone. To determine if it is one or both channels, the balance control can be utilized. In case of differing tracking ability in the left and right channels it is probably necessary to readjust the anti-skating correction of the tonearm. If both channels fail to track properly, then vertical tracking force should be increased until no further improvement of tracking force can be obtained.


    15. Square Wave Form 2.7 msec duty cycle 3:7
    When monitoring the output of your cartridge with an oscilloscope you'll then see a square wave located precisely above each other if the connection from the cartridge is correct.


    After successful completion of the above test procedures, you can ensure that your cartridge is optimized. Still the human ear is very sensitive to difference in tone distortion; its level depends on the stylus condition and record wear.

    Fozgometer Azimuth Range Finder


    The FOZGOMETER represents a breakthrough for adjusting phono system azimuth.


    To obtain high performance from a modern phonograph system, the tonearm and pickup cartridge must be properly adjusted to within a few thousands of an inch. There are several alignment gauges available to adjust overhang and offset. To adjust cartridge azimuth (Axial Tilt), it has been necessary to use lab quality equipment and a test record. Azimuth may be adjusted using an oscilloscope, AC voltmeter, or computer program. These methods can be expensive and time consuming.


    The FOZGOMETER incorporates a "Log Ratio Detector" developed for surround processor steering logic circuits to measure channel separation over a wide range of signal levels down to -70 dB. The readings are virtually independent of overall signal levels, and can be made with a wide range of input signals without effecting accuracy. It is a small portable battery powered unit that is used in conjunction with a test record. It measures channel separation, channel balance, and signal direction quickly and accurately. Readings are taken without touching the meter, leaving your hands free to work with the tonearm. The meter reads channel separation in both directions, and channel balance. The LED's indicate Left, Center, and Right signal (test tone) positions.

    Handcrafted in the USA


    The JUMBO SHRIMP shares key outward features found in many of its counterparts both past and present. It is a twochannel single-ended line level control preamplifier with five sets of stereo inputs, and two sets of paralleled stereo line outputs. A five-position input selector switch routes the chosen signal directly to the first amplifier tube's control grid. Amplified signals, boosted about 4 times [11.8 dB] are then fed through a dedicated White-Follower stage (using 5670 triodes) to effortlessly drive the (motorized!) high quality ALPS stereo variable attenuator, known for its stability, long life, ease of servicing and good inter-channel level tracking characteristics. This is followed by a similarly appealing, center-detented ALPS stereo balance potentiometer.


    The attenuator network output is then fed to a special White-follower output stage. This output circuit has been a favorite of ours for many years mainly due to the stage's inherently low output impedance, simplicity, wide bandwidth, ease of drive, modest feedback requirements and graceful overload characteristics. Ordinarily, the typical JUMBO SHRIMP user would not ever begin to approach the limits of this output stage under normal line and loading circumstances.


    High quality polypropylene dielectric film-and-foil capacitors have been employed at all signal-coupling points in the circuit along with two extravagant 30 microfarad metalized monsters coupling the output stage signals to the output RCA jacks. These are all MultiCaps made by our buddy Bas Lim at Rel Cap. We know you would rather listen to superior capacitors such as these over some cheap electrolytic capacitors like you might find in other gear.


    But the JUMBO SHRIMP's cardinal feature is its uncomplex non-inverting signal path. This minimal signal path approach is designed to bring unbalanced RCA-type line inputs up to levels suitable for proper drive of downstream power amplifiers in the simplest and most direct way possible. This is accomplished by using only three active stages, as described above, through the judicious use of vacuum tubes, whose purpose-designed application in audio amplifcation is, as always, pressed to full advantage. By so doing, the endeavor here is to provide the most direct, uncolored, quiet and wide-band signal path possible so that the native character of the chosen source material may be heard with out encumbrances from a set of imposed limitations brought on by the preamp. In this spirit, there are no provisions for balanced inputs or outputs. Since the whole guts of the Jumbo Shrimp are inherently single-ended, adding balanced I/O would require additional circuitry, transformers, or IC's which would inevitably color the sound.


    Lastly, we would be remiss if we did not mention the clever REMORA REMOTE CONTROL that comes standard with every Jumbo Shrimp. This little box commands the motorized ALPS volume control via radio frequency signals, so it works through doors, walls, cabinets, you name it!

    Nefertiti

    Recorded in two days in the summer of 1967 Nefertiti is Miles Davis' last fully acoustic album, with no compositions from Miles himself. Most tracks are written by Wayne Shorter & Herbie Hancock.


    Best known for its unusual title track, where the horns keep repeating the melody and the rhythm section improvises (in stead of the other way around).


    Whilst an acoustic album, it does signals Miles' transition from bop to jazz fusion; a hint at the next albums Miles in the Sky and the critically acclaimed In A Silent Way.

    Last Night Becomes This Morning

    Their second album, following 2002's critically acclaimed "This Flag Signals Goodbye" is front man Dave Doughman's indie version of "Running On Empty". Recorded on the road, between and while on tour, at soundchecks, in hotel rooms, in rehearsal halls, and on the bus, it's an album about two artists in love and how their craft keeps them apart. Where "Running On Empty" told of the battle to cope with fame and fortune, "Last Night" chronicles the struggle to live life on the road in spite of lack of fame or fortune. In place of the sold out arenas, its live sound comes in busking in an empty Berlin subway station.

    Earth To Echo Soundtrack (Colored Vinyl)

    Limited Pressing On Transparent Blue Colored Vinyl, Black Vinyl Pressing Thereafter


    Earth To Echo is a heartwarming 2014 summer family adventure movie, telling the story of a bunch of young teenage friends whose lives are about to change. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys begin receiving a strange series of signals on their phones.


    Convinced something bigger is going on, they team set out to look for the source of their phone signals. What they discover is something beyond their wildest imaginations: a small alien who has become stranded on Earth. In need of their help, the four friends come together to protect the alien and help him find his way home. This journey, full of wonder and adventure, is their story, and their secret.


    Echo is one of the most adorable characters you're going to see this year, with oodles of personality. The film has been shot in 'found footage' visual photography. From phones (which act as the robots eyes) to camcorders, all are utilised here with magnificent effect. The movie's young cast (Teo Halm, Astro and Resse Hartwig) are superb and with a solid chemistry between them and incredibly likeable personas, they will keep audiences stuck to their chairs.

    Digital to Analog audio conversion like you've never heard it before. The VDA•2 uses unique filters and a low jitter receiver to produce natural sound.


    Our new VDA•2 takes Digital to Analog audio conversion to a new level. Traditional DAC designs use brick-wall digital filters, usually followed by more analog filtering to reduce sampling noise, but cause signal degradation in the process. Another approach has been to use no filtering at all, but this adds noise to the analog signal. Both of these designs have their strengths and weaknesses, but neither tends to be a good trade-off. Our design uses only a mild "slow roll-off" digital filter and first order analog filter to tame the sampling noise. This architecture has reduced filtering artifacts compared to brick-wall types, and lower sampling noise than filterless types, resulting in a more "analog" sound.


    Digital input signals are accepted by Toslink optical or coaxial SPDIF, then fed to the CS8416 24 bit/192k low jitter input receiver, then to the Burr Brown PCM1794 balanced/current output DAC. Our unique output stage is a fully discrete/zero feedback design and uses only a single transistor per output to insure the purity of the audio signal. Circuit board is high quality 2 oz. copper with lead-free silver solder construction.


    Input selection and digital domain phase are selected by convenient front panel switches, and an LED indicates "LOCK" when a valid signal is being received.

    Rega Ios Moving Coil Amplifier

    Designed as the ultimate MC phono stage and the perfect match for the Rega Apheta MC cartridge Ios has made the transition in to the reference style case to match Isis and Osiris. The new Ios has the addition of balanced XLR connections mute and mono functions. The PCB layout has been redesigned to improve the noise floor and the entire unit has been fully rewired with ultra low capacitance cabling.


    The function of a phono pre amplifier is to match the output from a pick up cartridge to the input of a line level amplifier. It is required to amplify the very low signals produced by the cartridge and also to equalise the sound in accordance with RIAA record cutting standard. Rega believes that moving coil and moving magnet cartridges require different types of phono pre amplifiers to achieve optimum performance. The IOS is therefore dedicated to moving coil cartridges and avoids compromises. We have avoided including any superfluous functions as they obstruct the signal path and degrade the sound quality.


    Design innovation


    The Rega Ios is a four stage all symmetrical amplifier. To provide optimum performance it is dedicated to amplifying the very low level signals that are generated by moving coil cartridges.


    The first stage uses a 1:10 step-up transformer, which can be optimised to the cartridge by the selection of the correct loading and zobel DC resistance correction network connected across the MC transformer secondary.


    The second stage is a symmetrical compound pair class A amplifier, using paralleled low noise Hitachi transistors in the input stage.This drives the passive high frequency part of the RIAA equalisation stage.


    The third stage is a symmetrical class A differential amplifier with a common base driver stage; this is also used as the active amplifier in the low frequency part of the RIAA equalisation stage. The fourth stage is the active filter, this configuration uses the same circuit as found in the second stage. The filter element uses a very high bandwidth operational amplifier.


    The power supply is a symmetrical discrete tracking power supply using fast diodes and a low noise voltage reference. Each stage has its own localised power supply, and LED referenced current generators. Very high quality, polypropylene capacitors have been used in the signal path. 1% tolerance polypropylene capacitors are used in the RIAA EQ stages and audio grade capacitors are used in the rest of the circuit.


    We hope that you enjoy this product as much as we have enjoyed creating it. - Rega

    Ambit Tuner



    For more than 30 years Creek Audio has established itself as an expert in the field of radio. Historically, Mike Creek has developed and manufactured radio products since the early 70s. Mike's father also made radio products, so it's in his DNA. The latest DAB radios use bit-compression to turn all radio stations into the equivalent of very poor quality MP3 players. Needless to say, this is the main reason for Creek not offering a DAB radio in its Hi-Fi range. In any case, you don't need to buy a DAB radio when all the digital and analogue stations are broadcast over the internet now. Even analogue stations, broadcast over the internet, are digitised and compressed, so the best way to listen is still via a traditional radio or tuner.


    The latest tuner in Creek's EVOLUTION range is the AMBIT FM/AM Tuner module, suitable for adding to the EVOLUTION 50A or the EVOLUTION 100A amplifier. Plugging this tuner into the back panel of the amplifier upgrades the amp into a Receiver. Its Plug and Play nature also allows it to update the amp's software to the latest revision automatically. Once the tuner is installed and the amp is switched-on, the display will show the amp having an extra input - A Tuner input, in fact. However, it will look to the user like a stand-alone tuner in the OLED display window.


    Once installed, the four left hand buttons on the front panel, together with the left hand control knob and or remote control handset, will offer all the radio function controls.


    The AMBIT tuner receives the entire FM and AM frequency band and digitises it with two high quality ADCs. It then manages the signal using a Digital Signal processor and even separates the left and right channel information in FM. After this, using its own high quality DAC, it returns the digital signal to Audio, to be amplified by the EVOLUTION 50A or 100A.


    The result is simply brilliant. FM signals have textbook operation, with none of the usual problems associated with analogue tuner performance. RDS stations will show their name and other information. AM performance is excellent also and can provide excellent performance just from the loop antenna provided, if there is a good indoor signal.


    FM radio performance is limited only by the quality of the signal and of course the antenna used. Choose an external antenna for the best results.


    Listen to your favourite stations like you have never heard them before.
