    The Captain And Me

    This multi-platinum smash LP yielded the Doobie Brothers four major hit singles and has since become one of the most popular albums of all time in classic rock. Featuring Long Train Runnin', China Grove and other favorites, The Captain and Me has truly stood the test of time. Impeccably half-speed mastered using the original Warner vault tapes at Friday Music Studios by the award winning Joe Reagoso (Doobie Brothers, Yes, Boz Scaggs), and Capitol Records in Hollywood with Ron McMaster, this will be one of the most desired audiophile releases this new year! Packaged with the original gatefold cover, original art elements, protective poly record sleeve, and poly bag for the album cover.

    The Ultimate Analogue Test LP

    Editors Editors Editors Editors


    Analogue Productions set out to produce the ultimate test record.


    We've consulted many experts in the field, including mastering engineers, audio experts, turntable experts and audiophile listeners, to create a test record that's never been made before. When Barry Wolifson from Sterling Sound in New York City called us with the same idea we had been thinking about - that being to create the ultimate test record - he and our audio expert Clark Williams began to brainstorm and research ideas until they were both completely satisfied with what should go on the record.


    Most of the test records in the past have been made to test a variety of equipment. This test record excludes silly cannon shots, typewriters, voices on one channel and other useless fluff. This one specifically addresses your turntable and cartridge. It's designed to provide the basic test signals necessary to calibrate a turntable or cutting lathe as simply as possible. Most of the signals have specific implications, but it is certainly possible to use them in any number of novel ways.


    This record was mastered and cut on a Neumann VMS 80 lathe at Sterling Sound and pressed at Record Technology, Inc. on high-quality, 180-gram virgin vinyl.


    Side 1

    General Reference Level

    This 1 kHz reference tone will allow you to establish a "base level" for all measurements.
    Track 1 1Khz reference tone 7cm/s Mono, in phase (Lateral)

    Basic reference for all measurements, adjust meter for maximum convenience (in the studio 0VU).
    Adjust preamp channel balance for equal output.
    Also used to check the offset angle of the photo cartridge; L&R signals should be exactly in phase as displayed on an oscilloscope.


    Azimuth Adjustment

    Track 2 1kHz reference level Left channel only

    Measure Right channel output.

    Track 3 1kHz reference level Right channel only

    Measure Left channel output.

    The object is to sit the stylus exactly perpendicular in the groove.

    Twist cartridge about its radial axis until the measurements from Track 2 and Track 3 are equal or very close to equal for both channels.


    High Frequency Adjustment

    Tracks 4, 5 and 6 are used to calibrate the RIAA high frequency equalizer of a phono preamp. This will be used to calibrate a mastering lathe's phono preamplifier or any phono preamplifier that has these adjustments.

    Track 4 1 kHz tone at -20 below reference level, Lateral

    Reference for High Frequency test.

    Track 5 10 kHz reference tone at -20dbu, Lateral
    Adjust the high frequency until the output level equals that of Track 4.

    Track 6 1 kHz to 20 kHz sweep at -20dbu, Mono (Lateral)

    The AC millivoltmeter reading should stay constant across all frequencies. There are a number of 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 10 kHz adjustment, a better overall frequency response can be achieved.


    Low Frequency Adjustment

    Tracks 7 & 8 are used to calibrate the RIAA low frequency equalizer of a phono preamp.

    Track 7 1 kHz to 20 Hz sweep at 0 VU (Lateral)

    Play Track 7 and measure the output with your AC millivolt meter.

    Ideally, the output will be flat across all frequencies. When viewed on an oscilloscope, the amplitude would remain constant during the frequency downsweep.

    Track 8 100 Hz reference tone at 0 vu (Lateral)
    Adjust LF Eq to reference (which is your reading from Track 1).


    Track 9 VTA adjust

    This is an IEC intermodulation distortion (IMD) test signal; 60Hz & 4kHz 4:1 ratio.

    Using an IMD tester, adjust VTA by raising or lowering the tonearm for minimum distortion.


    Track 10 Standard Wow & Flutter test signal; 3150Hz
    The Wow & Flutter meter will give dynamic speed variations as a percentage deviation from nominal.

    Also, the frequency counter should read exactly 3150 Hz for nominal speed. You can use the Hz function on your multi-meter (if so equipped) to verify speed here as well. You can also use to find the measurements at 45RPM. The correct reading at 45RPM would be 4253 Hz (45/33.33) x 3150.


    Side 2

    Track 1 Anti-skating test; 315Hz amplitude sweep to +12dbu (Lateral)

    Signal should remain clean in both channels up to the highest level, both audibly and as viewed on an oscilloscope. In case of distortion, increase anti-skating force or decrease anti-skate until breakup occurs equally in both channels. The left channel information is inscribed on the inner groove wall, the right channel information, on the outer groove wall. Because of the offset angle of a pivoted tonearm, a constantly varying vector force biases the arm towards the center of the record causing the stylus to lose contact with the outer (i.e. right channel) groove wall. Both linear and modulated groove velocity, tracking force, stylus profile, and vinyl composition are contributing factors. The anti skating force attempts to ameliorate this by applying an opposing similar force.

    It is also accepted that the overall force vector increases as the tonearm approaches closer to the spindle or end of the record.


    Track 2 Pink noise lateral

    Track 3 Pink noise vertical

    Used for cartridge "demagnetizing"

    You can also use this track to loosen up the cantilever's suspension to help break in a new cartridge. Play these tracks five to ten times after every 300 hours of normal LP playback.


    Track 4 1kHz @ reference level, vertical
    This out-of-phase signal should cancel to nothing when summed to mono.

    Any signals still present are distortion artifacts, lack of channel balance, or timing (phase) anomalies. This test can be a second confirmation of anti-skate adjustment.


    Track 5 1kHz to 10Hz sweep @ -20 below

    reference level, vertical
    Resonance anomalies in the tonearm / cartridge interface will show up as amplitude peaks and dips as the frequency sweeps down.

    Once again, by listening in 'Mono' it is easier to hear the distortion artifacts.


    Track 6 Silent groove for bearing rumble and table isolation

    During playback of this track, nothing should be transmitted from the turntable to the speakers. Replay the track and gently tap on the rack or base that the turntable is resting on. There should be little or no thump transferred to the speakers. This track will help you experiment with turntable isolation methods and products to be able to get the most out of your playback system. You may want to use a closed or sealed headphone for best listening results, or a stethoscope on the plinth.

    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.

    Musik Wie Von Einem Anderen Stern: Manger Test LP (Awaiting Repress)

    The Manger LP test consists of 15 tracks, many of which are already known to the audiophile crowd. For example, tracks 11 and 12 are by Chesky Records, the well known Livingston Taylor selections. Track 3 is a Beethoven's Piano Sonata (# 8, C-Dur, Op. 13) by Denon/Nippon Columbia. Still from the same label is track #4 (from Denon Professional Test CD): Beethoven Ich liebe dich, Hermann Prey. Then there's something from Philips, Klavier Records, Divox Jazz etc.


    The quality of the chosen tracks is excellent, as one may expect from a test disc. The Manger LP test offers different kinds of music, from classical to jazz and light pop. Each track is meant to test a particular instrument or musical genre, so you have track no. 8 which is devoted to classical guitar (Capriccio Arabo), track no. 9 for double-bass, track 12 for an acapella choir and so on.


    The last track of the disc is devoted to a percussion ensemble (The O-Zone Percussion Group), always very useful to test rise-time, decays and macrodynamics. This audiophile test LP is very interesting, reasonably priced and with a good selection of excellently recorded tracks.

    Cartridge Break-In Test Record

    Multiple endless grooves of pink noise for cartridge break-in and other tracks for cartridge set-up


    Phono cartridges usually need a running-in period to reach their full potential. This can take anything from 40 to 100 hours, depending upon the manufacturer, design and construction of the phono cartridge.


    This Clearaudio Cartridge Break-In Record is a unique too. Playing an endless groove cut with pink noise significantly reduces the length of the break-in period.


    Six continuous pink noise tracks are provided at various positions on the record (track numbers are 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 11).


    To enable frequency response measurement of the phono cartridge, track 3 comprises a sine-wave frequency sweep from 20 Hz to 20 kHz.


    There are two separate 240-second tracks containing a pink noise signal for measuring and testing the set-up of the whole system.


    Tracks 4 and 13 are recorded with no signal to test the noise floor of the entire hi-fi system.


    Finally, tracks 8 and 12 contain a special signal to optimise and adjust the anti-skating force. Both channels are recorded with a 316 Hz sine-wave with continually changing phase difference from 0 to 360 deg, so that the stylus movement repeatedly changes from lateral to vertical and back again. The signal level changes accordingly from -22 dB to +8 dB, corresponding to a maximum velocity of 9.81 cm/s or a maximum displacement of 50 lm, horizontally or vertically.

    2. 1 kHz - starting signal
    3. Sweep - frequency response check: 20 Hz to 20 kHz

    Test For Echo

    200 Gram Vinyl LP


    Features Etched Designs on Side D of the Album


    Test for Echo is the sixteenth studio album by Canadian rock band Rush, released in 1996. It marks the final Rush work prior to the tragic events in Neil Peart's life that put the band on hiatus for several years. He recorded a majority of his drum tracks for the album using traditional grip, after receiving drum lessons from jazz instructor Freddie Gruber.


    After flirting with alternative rock on Counterparts, Rush returns to classic progressive rock on Test for Echo. Cutting back many of the AOR production flourishes that hampered most of their late-'80s and early-'90s releases, the band concentrates on the sounds and styles that made albums like Moving Pictures huge successes in the late '70s and early '80s. Test for Echo is all instrumental gymnastics and convoluted song structures, all of which demonstrate each member's skills. And the key to the album is the individual performances.


    The title track reached #1 on the mainstream rock chart. Driven became a bass showcase for Geddy Lee during live performances, while Resist was rearranged as an acoustic song on the Vapor Trails and R30 tours. Since then, the band has not performed any tracks from the album in concert.

    The Litmus Test

    Cut Chemists Litmus Test is a self-mixed retrospective showcasing one of the 1990s great DJ/producers repertoire.
    Originally released in 2004, the album ushered in his solo era as a precursor to his Warner Brothers debut release
    The Audience Is Listening.


    A mix of selected productions/mixes Cut Chemist had done to date - some for hire, some for pleasure, and many for
    the group hed become famous with, Jurassic 5. This compilation is a good snapshot of his career, and makes one
    realize the level of talent that was quietly lurking behind the turntables in J5 - from his work with retro-funk label
    Now Again (Bunkys Pick) to backpack Hip Hop kids Ugly Duckling to futuristic complex rappers Blackalicious
    and bedroom cut-up exercises in Lesson 6, Cut Chemist made a case that established his legacy as one of the
    greats of the era, expertly segueing and blending a catalogue of his own compositions, ending up with a new album,
    which turns out to be a real solid listen.


    For fans of: DJ Shadow, Edan, Q-Bert, Jurassic 5, Quannum, The Roots, Stones Throw Records and the Cut-Up genre.

    TEST - Freedom Child (Pre-Order)

    Freedom Child is the new album from The Script, and is the band's fifth full length album. Freedom Child sees the band presenting a collection of urgent, timely, future-facing anthems that speak of both real-life events and real-time sonic adventurism. The album was recorded between London and Los Angeles and for the first time, the band chose to work with an A List of co-writers and producers.

    Freedom Child is the follow up to the band s 2014 release, No Sound Without Silence. The new album is being launched with the new single and video, Rain, an infectious cloudburst of rhythmically-taut, piano-tinged pop with the kind of irresistible chorus that has become a trademark of the tight-knit band.

    Reality Testing (Awaiting Repress)

    The hyper-chromatic music of Matt Cutler marks him out as a true impressionist; as Lone, he drizzles brightly coloured melody through his tracks with all the reflexive skill of a master painter daubing inks and pigment across paper. On Cutler's fifth Lone album, Reality Testing, released on R&S, he sends notes and chords rippling delicately into space before allowing them to disperse, each oozing beautifully away into the background fabric of the music. Combined with rhythms that ebb and flow, shifting from propulsive club constructions to beatific coastal hip-hop, it's a sensuous, immersive, heady experience, and easily his most accomplished and self-contained work to date.

    ... demagnetizing an LP definitively removed a high-frequency glaze or glare and seemed to enrich the midband... Demagnetizing LPs works. And do not try one of these devices unless you're prepared to buy it.

    LP Record, DISC and Cable Demagnetizer 110VAC


    The Furutech DeMag completely demagnetizes LPs and optical disc media such as CD, CD-R, DVD, MD, Game CD, Photo CD, SACD, and DVD Audio. Plus it's an indispensable accessory for keeping interconnect cables, connectors and power cords demagnetized to prevent magnetic signal distortion. Demagnetization isn't Just For Optical Media Anymore! One year factory Warranty. The deMag works for disc media as well as cables, connectors, and power cords! No part of the playback chain should be disturbed by resolution-sapping magnetic interference. Demagnetizing LPs How can an LP be magnetized? It's plastic! The fact is that pigment added to the plastic during the manufacturing process is the culprit. The minute amount of ferrous material in the pigment causes LPs to become magnetized. Testing at the Tokyo Nanotechnology center with a IHI Gauss meter showed that after an LP was treated with the deMag the magnetic field of the LP was lowered from 620~630 nT to 572~582 nT (nanotesla: a unit of magnetic field strength,1 Tesla = 10,000 gauss) Demagnetizing Cables Electric current generates a magnetic field as it flows through a power cord or conductor. However, magnetic impurities within the materials themselves become magnetized and introduce further magnetic distortion. Just loop your cables and power cords with their connectors on the deMag and begin treatment. No matter how valuable or expensive your system is, the only way to achieve top performance is by demagnetizing your problems away! There are no other demagnetizers on the market that can be used in such a versatile and effective way. The deMag Demagnetizer can even be used on metal-based accessories like CD stabilizers or speaker terminals.

    God Shuffled His Feet

    After their first album made the Crash Test Dummies huge in their home country Canada, their second album meant their big break in the USA and Europe, thanks to the self-consciously bizarre lyrics and the deep baritone voice of singer/songwriter Brad Roberts, demonstrated in their worldwide top ten hit MMM MMM MMM MMM.


    Other popular singles off the album were Afternoons & Coffeespoons and Swimming In Your Ocean. 'God Shuffled His Feet' was the band's most commercially successfull album reaching Top Album charts in USA (#9), UK (#2) and in different countries in Europe (ironically, after a car accident where Brad Roberts almost lost his arm, Crash Test Dummies made a few other albums but unfortunately limited distribution made these hard to find).

    By Design

    Test of Time's members are no strangers to the punk scene, from frontman and photographer Todd Pollock to guitarist/vocalist and record label proprietor Charles Chaussinand to bassist and ex-Energy/Daytrader road dog Robert Cheeseman (the band also features Beartrap's Mike Assatly on guitars/vocals and Jeff Novak on drums). After unleashing a prolific amount of material considering their formation two short years ago, including one self-released 10-song demo (2012's Inclusion), two EPs (2013's The Price and the more recent A Place Beyond) and several cover singles, the band has crafted a proper full-length debut of speedy, howled youth crew hardcore à la Youth of Today, Bane and In My Eyes. By Design is guided by the careful, detail-oriented approach of architectural planning (as hinted at by its visual motif), and uses that focus to deliver unexpected shifts in tempo dynamic, musically and lyrically sly references to hardcore's past, and sincere decrees pertaining to vegetarianism, The Straight Edge, perseverance, and one's own personal growth and change.

    The Race For Space (Awaiting Repress)

    Following the critical and commercial success of their debut album last year and 18 months' worldwide touring & festival appearances, Public Service Broadcasting are pleased to release their new album, The Race For Space. Working with exclusive archive footage from the British Film Insti-tute, the new record will tells story of the American & Soviet space race from 1957 - 1972 via the duo's eccentric mix of guitar-driven electronica, propulsive drumming and spoken word samples culled from this uniquely rich period of modern history. The Race For Space follows Inform - Educate - Entertain, Public Service Broadcasting's debut album, which reached #21 in the UK and was one of BBC 6Music's Top 10 albums of 2013

    Moanin'

    Limited Direct Metal Mastered 180 gram vinyl LP pressing of this classic album. Wax Time.


    Moanin' includes some of the greatest music Blakey produced in the studio with arguably his very best band. There are three tracks that are immortal and will always stand the test of time. The title selection is a pure tuneful melody stewed in a bluesy shuffle penned by pianist Bobby Timmons, while tenor saxophonist Benny Golson's classy, slowed Along Came Betty and the static, militaristic Blues March will always have a home in the repertoire of every student or professional jazz band.

    Devo - Hardcore Live!

    Devo captured live in Oakland, performing early experimental tracks. No matter how messy, beginnings are exciting. Especially when what happens next endures the test of time. For Devo the beginning happened in the basements and garages of Akron, Ohio. The songs they wrote were raw and unfiltered with no commercial intent. They called it Hardcore Devo. Performing 21 oddities, this program is a tribute to the departed Bob Bob 2 Casale.
