Beethoven String Quartet, Op.130 - The Orford String Quartet LP
Happy Birthday! Cake and ice cream for everyone! I turn 37 years old today, and for the occasion I'd like to share one of my favorite classical records. This is Canada's Orford String Quartet performing Beethoven's String Quartet No.13, Op.130. The LP comes from the Canadian Broadcasting Company, and was recorded in December, 1976.
I recorded this album to my PC ("needle drop") using Audacity at 24-bit/96kHz, then uploaded to Youtube. Here is what my stereo system looks like:
Sony PX-X5 direct drive turntable
Ortofon 2M Blue phono cartridge
Harmon/Kardon 330c stereo receiver
Musical Fidelity V-LPS phono preamp w/ Radio Shack PSU
You have no idea how much of a pain it's been to put this together. The new Youtube redesign is missing many crucial features, like embedding playlists, and finding the page for this custom player was nothing short of a miracle. This is going to make videos so much easier...I hope. Enjoy.
