Funk Firm Spin Bearing and Strata Platter for Technics SL1200

£420.00£839.99
Here’s the problem:
To create a stable, wide diameter support for the record, that doesn’t move. Conventionally platters have either thickness or a sizeable edge. The trouble is the standard 1200 / 1210 series platters lack both! We are effectively left with a disc, severe ringing is the natural consequence. (For proof we need only examine the original metal offering: Place a finger through a hole, tap it gently and “feel” the edge. The all too familiar uncontrolled, vibrating “Klong” confirms the problem: The edge is moving.) One can try changing material: Glass…ceramics…plastics. In all cases, tap the edge and you can still actually feel movement. …And if you can feel it, the stylus can read it. It turns out that this is in fact a difficult problem to solve.
A creative solution was needed:

KRAFTWERK – Soest Live Hand Numbered Limited Edition 180g Vinyl

£25.00
One of the most influential bands in the last five decades, Kraftwerk virtually established the blueprint, the source code even for electronic music.
Founded by classically trained musicians Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider-Esleban in Dusseldorf in 1970, the band has informed and inspired a diverse range of genres and artists including David Bowie, Björk, Afrika Bambaataa, and Joy Division. This early live performance, in Soest, Germany in Winter 1970, broadcast on WDR-TV displays the band in superb form. Arguably, the future of electronic music, trance, techno, ambient – started right here.
