Faster than a bullet
Enraged and full of anger
He is half man and half machine
Rides the metal monster
Breathing smoke and fire
Closing in with vengeance soaring high
He is the painkiller
Sony’s portable battery-powered turntable from 1983 has become a highly desired and expensive collectors piece. However before I can demonstrate this one, I’ll need to get it working.
UPDATE: After uploading the video, it occurred to to that Sony have in fact revisited their back catalogue recently with the re-launch of the Aibo robotic dog. Hopefully this will continue and we’ll get to see some more modern reinterpretations of classic Sony products.
OMISSION: I forgot to mention that I pulled out any remnants of the old felt washer that was protruding from between the cogs before installing my replacement cloth tape.
Also perhaps I should have clarified that the gears unit was welded on at both ends, there were no retaining washers or e-clips that could be removed to disassemble it.
There’s also a fan website dedicated to the Sony PS-F5 that has some additional information – https://www.ps-f5.com
I show off this beautiful vinyl soundtrack for the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time!

Jesper Frostgaard asks:
I would love to hear your opinion on what is best – vinyl, cd, streaming or maybe high-res audio (like HD-tracks). And about what you use and how?
Reese Riverson asks:
What turn table would you recommend to buy for those who don’t have a very good one or wish to get one to start collecting or expand upon their vinyl collection?

Troy Nelson from KEXP joins me to talk about one of the craziest and unique vinyl records ever made: Jack White’s Lazaretto Ultra LP. There are over 10 unique things about it:
-180 gram vinyl
-2 vinyl-only hidden tracks hidden beneath the center labels
-1 hidden track plays at 78 RPM, one plays at 45 RPM, making this a 3-speed record
-Side A plays from the inside out
-Dual-groove technology: plays an electric or acoustic intro for “Just One Drink” depending on where needle is dropped. The grooves meet for the body of the song.
-Matte finish on Side B, giving the appearance of an un-played 78 RPM record
-Both sides end with locked grooves
-Vinyl pressed in seldom-used flat-edged format
-Dead wax area on Side A contains a hand-etched hologram the first of its kind on a vinyl record
-Different running order from the CD/digital version
-LP utilizes some mixes different from those used on CD and digital version
