It has been a while since I last wrote on this blog. I must say that I have been extremely busy especially with my work where I had to travel back and forth from Singapore on weekly basis. Just crazy to be honest, but I am enjoying every bit of it. Tiring – but there’s a sense of meaningfulness that I have long missed since my days in Accenture.
Anyway – in the past month or so, I indulged myself into a new hobby. More like getting myself into a hole that I don’t think I would ever get out. Big boys toys (more of it). I went on the on turntable.guide website, saw a few under 300 turntables and started to get into the world of vinyls and records.
I am not sure how it all started, but I did thought about getting myself a hifi system a year ago, but never got around to do it as I was not focused. So one fine day I decided to pickup one, and then I straight got into buying a turn table. In fact, now I have two turn tables!
I used the PS-HX500 to convert the records to DSD so that I can here on the move. Not the easiest to convert as it takes time, but the recording is very decent.
My main turntable is a Rega P6 (or RP6) – not sure which one is which. I hook this up to my amplifier and it sounded amazing. In fact, the good thing about records is that you don’t get music fatigue and I can listen for hours. The question now, do I have enough records? Well I guess that is my favourite past time now which to look for the records that I like. A lot of places in KL and Singapore I must say, but $$$ … hahaha
