many thanks to everyone who's filled a survey so far. May life always bring you oranges and not lemons.
i could still do with a few more, so anyone who owns record would really be helping me by spending 1 minute from their lives to fill the questionaire.

i thought the title was pretty self explanatory...! :teeth:
well, say you have a few vinyls that you want to have as digital as well. Then you post it to me, i record it, and send back to you, once you pay me.!
and by this any sane man would think that "fuck paying that greek twat, i can do it myself."
thing is, that greek twat has an Apogee ADC that smokes most soundcard found in a typical bedroom dj set up, im getting a supped up 1210 MK3, all rewired and modified tone arm, which makes it the best sound 1210 around. Plus a pimpin elliptical needle that costs close to the price of the deck, a valve pre amp with 18 Hz High Pass filter, and a vinyl washing machine. It becomes pretty clear that the recording chain i offer will give great results. Add to that some of my personal experience with recording, and the use of post recording software to remove any nasty vinyl noises (or not, its up to the customer), and i'l challenge anyone to say that it wont be worth it. I have heard records recorded through pretty much the same equipment, and its pure magic. Miles ahead of any cold mp3 or wav. All the warmness of the vinyl is there, and boosted to heavenly heights by the valves, but most importantly, its timing is accurate as fuck, as i'llbeusing a 1210 instead of the admittedly much more expensive belt drives, which always tend to lack on the timing side.
So yeah, thats it in a nutshell. i hope to offer close to face value of the vinyls for the service ( £5 for singles, £15 LPs), but like i said this wont kick off until at least next may.
get your selections ready, i'll probs do special offers for bulk and dnbf members...
depending on whether they have pissed me off in the past or not..:teeth:
