Dear Filpe, I do own a turntable. Though it is more of a novelty item than an audiophile piece of hardware.
I do intend to rectify this one day. Though as we live on a rural (very) dusty road. I would be concerned about the amount of dust the turntable would suffer from. The dust rolls in with every vehicle that passes by. May I thank you again for your recommendation. I will, look for it in CD format. Though for the immediate future I will put it away for now as I concentrate on Bach recommendations from Gramophone's Top 10 list and those albums that have a Christian vein which have been kindly recommended to myself.
I think I am a little overwhelmed with the kind responses and have more than enough to consider for the moment.
There is a local store in Melbourne, Australia that advertises that it sells audiophile LP's and CD's. On Wednesday I will purchase this CD whilst it is still available
https://www.audiophilereferenc...ns-songcdi44009.html which is listed in Gramophone's Top 10.
After this and having appreciated this CD and if I indeed do enjoy Bach I will next purchase Saint Matthew's Passion and Mass in B minor. I will then go over all the recommendations again. Re-reading and making note of forum members opinions and look for a commonality between these recommendations and the Top 10 list of Gramophone's reviews.
To everyone, thank you for your posts and recommendations. I only have so many pennies to play with and can not purchase every item that has been recommended to me all at once. Though I will work on his. You may have a new Bach convert : )
After listening to some short wave radio last night and our local AM medium wave station and enjoying the (I do not want to say religious music) appropriate music to celebrate this Easter. I sat down to a Talisker 10 year old scotch at 1:00 am and listened to the first CD of John Butt's Handel's Messiah. This is the second time I have played this CD and I appreciated it even more this time around. I will listen to disc two tonight, again, after everyone is gone to bed.
It is a little difficult to "listen" to music during the day with all the family activities that take place in our open plan lounge/kitchen room.
