Hey everybody I hope your weekend was a good one. I picked up the new scanner Saturday afternoon and so far I really like it. It was very easy to set up and seems to scan really nicely. The images are sharp with lots of detail. The only thing that I noticed is scanning is a bit slow however I don’t mind given that the scan looks really nice. Another plus is that it has wireless internet connectivity so you can really place this massive beast anywhere. I like the touch screen panel on the front as well. I am going to test it out for the next week or so and decide if I like it enough to keep it. Below are a couple if pics for your reference.

So sorry for the late post I have been dealing with scanner issues all morning. My scanner has decided to stop scanning colors accurately so I am going to have to spend some money and purchase a new one. Luckily my local Best Buy stores do carry an over sized A3 scanner at a reasonable price. I am going to go pick up one today or tomorrow depending on the weather which has been extreme today very heavy rain. I also want to let you know that I will not be posting on Monday because I have doctor appointment. If everything goes well with the scanner i will post on Tuesday.
I really hope you all have a great weekend.

Hi guys! I hope you all are doing great. Last October we had a very successful fundraiser in which you guys really came through. If you remember I told you that we would be doing a fundraiser about every six months to keep funds in the Burning The Ground account. Well that time has come again and your help is so appreciated.
Our goal is to raise $400.00. This will ensure that I will be able to keep some funds in the BTG account to go towards site hosting, maintaining my equipment and buying records that you request. I do realize that times are tough for many so any amount given is very appreciated. All you have to do to make your donation is click on one of the yellow donate buttons anywhere on the site. I use PayPal. It’s safe, secure, and you don’t need an account.
Thank you so much for your help.

Meet the Ortofon 2M Bronze! I bought this new stylus last week and received it over the weekend. My old Ortofon 30 stylus was beginning to wear and after talking to the guys at turntableneedles.com decided that the Ortofon 2M Bronze would be a great replacement. You will be hearing the first rip with it later today.
The 2M Bronze features a nude Fine Line diamond stylus, which is particularly suited for demanding applications. The slim profile of the Fine Line stylus will track even the highest frequency information, making it a must for discerning listeners. Additionally, its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear.
The cartridge body used for the 2M Bronze is manufactured from a newly-developed Lexan DMX Piano Black, a revolutionary material which ensures high rigidity while eliminating unwanted resonances.
We have optimized the design for ease of mounting the cartridge, and the weight and size to fit the most common turntables on the market today. The 2M Series provides excellent compatibility when used in an assortment of playback systems and with a wide variety of phono preamps.
The 2M Bronze uses a special upgraded engine, featuring split pole pins with a silver plated copper wire.
