“Bought new cartridge. Ronette SM500/7”
Ooooooh, a bona fide EFA70’sTRO diary entry!
Not the most riveting thing though is it?
Basically I am telling my diary that I bought a new ‘needle’ for my Garrard record deck, presumably because I had a read a review of it somewhere and it promised auditory gains next time I listened to Fat Mattress?
I will use this entry to correct a previous error too.
I was always under the impression that the first amp I bought for myself was that posh keyboard-style Alba amp I have spoken of in glowing terms before.
NOT the case at all. The back of this 1974 diary tells me a different story and a quick google image search rendered my comments a lie. Instead of the Alba (was it my second amp?) my first was the below apparently ‘off-brand’ Albany House model. Is it now any wonder I ended up with a crappy one which my Dad had to take back?
Sorry, now back to album reviews….
