Second time in as many visits to East London the place I went to get records isn't open or on. Gig on!

The weather is lovely outside, and guess who has to stay in bed today because of a 🤬 cold? 🙋🏻♀️
So therefore a little improvisation in posts. :) I prepared some stuff that will come up in the next days, but for today I would like to show you which turntable I use, since a lot of you have asked recently.
I have been owning this one for a long time now (must be about 8 or 9 years) and I am still very happy with it. The Denon DP 300F is a full automatic turntable and is made of rigid diecast aluminium for „smooth, flatter free operations“ (as it’s said in the official description). It‘s got a removable headshell, which makes cartridge replacement very simple, manual lifter mechanism and includes a built in phono equaliser to connect the player with an external amp or receiver.
I combine this with an Ultra Current MOS amp by Denon and two speakers by Phonar. Though the turntable could be considered „old“ for some, I can still highly recommend it - now available for a very decent price! And I am that type of person who doesn‘t always need the newest technology, I use things until they fall apart 😅.
The record I am spinning now is „Wish You Were Here“ by Pink Floyd, best way to relax 💙. Which turntable do you use? ;) #denon#denondp300f#turntable#instahifi#hifiaudio#hifisystem#vinyl#vinylcollection#vinylcollectionpost#vinylonly#musiclove#musicjunkie#vinylcommunity#instavinyl#vinylgram#vinylporn#vinyldaily#musiconvinyl#vinyllovers#pinkfloyd#wishyouwerehere#nowspinning
Happy birthday to Fred “Sonic” Smith, born on this day in 1948. Frederick Dewey Smith, professionally known as Fred "Sonic" Smith, was a guitarist, best known as a member of the influential MC5. Often regarded as one of the most important hard rock bands of the era, their 3 albums are regarded by many as classics, and their song "Kick Out the Jams" has been widely covered. In 1980, at the age of 31, he married and raised a family with Patti Smith. The couple collaborated musically, and raised 2 children together. Fred Smith died in Detroit in 1994. He had been in poor health for a number of years, the apparent cause was heart failure. Together the Smiths had a son, Jackson and a daughter, Jesse. Jackson, a guitarist, was married to Meg White, (The White Stripes). Jesse is a pianist. Both have performed on stage with their mother along with other members of the Patti Smith Group. “Kick Out the Jams” is the debut album by MC5, and was released in February of 1969. It was recorded live at Detroit's Grande Ballroom over two nights, Devil's Night and Halloween 1968. "Kick out the jams" has also been taken to be a slogan of the 1960s ethos of revolution and liberation, an incitement to "kick out" restrictions in various forms. #fredsonicsmith#mc5#kickoutthejams#fuckhudsons
