    Isn’t music from the 80s simply the BEST?!?!
    Songs like these that are between minor hits and flops are still AMAZING!
    Thanks for the M+M mixes, Paul!
    Will look out for any more subtle differences in your ripping.
    btw, is the needle the only difference? the settings etc all remain the same?


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Thanks for your feedback Ric havn’t changed any settings but I can definately tell the difference.


    ric Reply:

    so if all other factors remained constant, I’d say this new needle did weave its magic.
    It does sound “brighter” to me.
