    Gingko Audio Cloud 11

    Each Gingko Audio product is made to order


    The patent-pending Cloud is a simple yet effective vibration control platform. Its elegant design belies its functional effectiveness. It works well because of the correct choice of material coupled with a flexible design that allows the user to
    experiment with a wide variety of applications. In the end you the audiophile make the ultimate judgment of how to best meet your needs, functionally and aesthetically.


    How vibration negatively affects good sound is a well-known and accepted phenomenon on which we need not elaborate. There are many available products
    aiming at reducing vibration affecting audio equipment. Most of them seek to isolate
    the equipment from unwanted vibration in the environment, transferred through the surface on which the equipment sits, be it the wooden floor or the metal rack. At the same time, vibration caused by the equipment itself such as the CD transport
    mechanism or the turntable platter needs to be dissipated so it does not affect other equipment on the rack.


    We find that acrylic does an excellent job in dissipating any vibrating energy it receives because of its complex, dense, and irregular molecular structure. It is not an accident that many audio products use acrylic in their designs, whether an acrylic turntable platter or an acrylic chassis for CD players or transports. In addition to the
    acrylic platform, the Cloud ™ also uses rubber balls to further isolate vibration from the environment from the equipment. The rubber balls serve two critical functions.


    They provide four degrees of freedom in the movement of the top platform relative
    to the bottom base. The top platform sitting on top of the rubber balls can freely
    move up and down, front to back, and side to side, and rotationally while minimizing
    undulating, repeating motion that continues after the original vibration. They work
    as very effective shock absorbers. The rubber balls are also used to balance the uneven load of some equipment such as amplifiers or turntables. By placing the rubber balls in the different positions in the base, the user can level the equipment
    and even the load. The standard balls that come with our platform are found to provide the most neutral sound. You may experiment with different kinds of balls to find ones to match your system and to suit your taste in music.

    Sisters Of The Red Death

    Vendetta Red's second LP includes twelve monstrous guitar tracks filled with manic energy, crescendo-ing guitars, symphonic overtures, and even some old-school hardcore aggression. It's also incredibly diverse. The thrashy Banshee and Joyless Euphoria should satisfy fans of VR's earlier, heavier material, while more daring tracks such as Dark Heart Silhouette and Silhouette Serenade share a symphonic, keyboard-drenched pop sensibility.

    Hot Rocks 1964-1971

    180 Gram Clear Vinyl From ABKCO'S Clearly Classic Reissue Series


    Double Gatefold


    Re-mastered by Bob Ludwig at Gateway Mastering


    Cut at Trutone Mastering by Carl Rowatti


    Pressed at RTI


    Hot Rocks 1964-1971 is the first compilation album of Rolling Stones music released by former manager Allen Klein's ABKCO Records (who gained control of the band's Decca/London material in 1970) after the band's departure from Decca and Klein. Released in late 1971, it proved to be The Rolling Stones' biggest-selling release of their career and an enduring and popular retrospective.


    After reportedly having been duped by Klein to unknowingly sign over the recording copyrights to all of their material from 1963 to 1970, The Rolling Stones left Decca and formed their own label, Rolling Stones Records, with a new distributor. They recorded Sticky Fingers throughout 1970, releasing it the following spring. Although Klein-and now ABKCO-no longer had The Rolling Stones as clients, their fruitful catalogue was ripe for the picking and, thus, Hot Rocks 1964-1971 was quickly compiled as a double album greatest hits package.


    While the album carries most of the band's biggest hits during their first decade, it does drop a few of them in order to include standout tracks such as Play With Fire, Under My Thumb and Gimme Shelter giving listeners a more well-rounded impression of The Rolling Stones' music in this era. Although Brown Sugar and Wild Horses are a part of Sticky Fingers, those two songs are co-owned by the band and Allen Klein because The Rolling Stones recorded the songs while they were still under contract to Decca.

    The Rose

    1979 Soundtrack Contains Multiple Smash Hits: When a Man Loves a Woman, Stay With Me Among Them


    Midler Steps Into Persona of Janis Joplin on Record Steeped in Rock n Roll, Pounding R&B, and Memphis Blues


    Contagious Sound That Spotlights Midlers Potent Voice: LP Mastered on Mobile Fidelitys World-Renowned Mastering System and Pressed at RTI


    Bette Midlers first leading role in a musical remains her best. As the soundtrack for that film, The Rose spotlights The Divine Miss Ms outstanding performance as a character in the persona of Janis Joplin. Midler received an Oscar nomination for Best Actress, and while the record contains no visuals, it punctuates the raw emotion and show-stopping persuasion that the singer brings to upbeat, rollicking fare composed in tribute to the late Joplin. Her reading of When A Man Loves a Woman remains definitive and unique for being sung from a females perspective.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelitys world-renowned mastering system and pressed at RTI, this Silver Label LP allows listeners to hone in on Midlers voice like never before. Kernels of previously unheard tonalities, richer hues of her bluesy timbre, and better-defined contours of her phrasing come to foreas do the contributions of guitarist Steve Hunter and drummer Whitey Glan, both members of Lou Reeds Rock n Roll Animal tour. No, The Rose isnt your conventional adult-contemporary pop offering from Midler. Its much more.


    Always a natural-born theatrical star, Midler demonstrates these abilities to wondrous effect throughout, pouring herself into the painful sentiments of Stay With Me and raising hell on raucous numbers such as Sold My Soul to Rock N Roll and Keep On Rockin. Muscle Shoals sounds and Memphis-birthed shuffles keep Midler balanced and engaged. Producer Paul Rothchild, who helmed Joplins final salvo, matches the headliners zest by keeping tight-fisted control over the material selection and sonics. Never does Midler seem as if shes merely paying tribute or playing a part; she makes listeners feel every note.


    Its apt, then, that shes afforded carte blanche on the title track, a gorgeous and career-defining moment of immense proportions and the only song here not performed in the persona of Joplin. Theres no better way to wrap up an album of nearly shamanic power, and an effort that, along with The Divine Miss M, remains Midlers peak.

    Distressed

    This is the collaboration between avant-jazz legend Nels Cline (Wilco, Thurston Moore, The Geraldine Fibbers) and omnipresent beat freak Zach Hill (Hella, The Ladies, Team Sleep). Sitting somewhere between the most abstract freak-outs of Wilco's more recent material and the looser, more minimalist moments of Hella, Damsel exhibits a surprising amount of control over its chaos. The four improvised pieces here run the gamut from serene electro-acoustic ambience to unhinged, cathartic squall. It's not the sound of losing control so much as it is trusting in an intangible force.

    The Rega RP8 skeletal turntable.


    Rega is extremely pleased to announce the launch of the much awaited RP8 turntable. A turntable which takes Rega's design philosophy further than ever before. A radical new plinth using custom designed materials, a new tonearm bearing assembly, 24v low volt-age motor controlled by a hand tuned electronic power supply and a custom version of our Planar 9 engineered hub bearing assembly. These are just some of the features of this amazing new turntable designed to extract more music from your vinyl than ever before.


    The Evolution of Revolution


    Evolution is a well proven and documented process in many areas of our lives. This applies in particular to design engineers and machines. Over the past forty years our cars have become more reliable and economical whilst we take for granted the reliability and speed of modern aircraft. Rega is no exception to evolution. Rega's experience and previous achievements allow us to continually develop and produce better products.


    The RP8 represents probably the biggest step forward in the evolution of Roy Gandy's turntable design philosophies. Low mass, high rigidity plinths combined with electronically controlled low vibration motors, high flywheel effect platters and lower mass higher stability tonearms.


    The RP8 is the first of our new "skeletal" design turntables offering groundbreaking levels of performance and amazing value for money.


    The RP8 will also be available with its perfect partner, the Apheta moving coil cartridge, factory fitted as a package option.

    Memorial

    When Brownie stood up and took his first solo on 'Philly J J,' I nearly fell off my seat in the control room. The power, range and brilliance together with the
    warmth and invention was something that I hadn't heard since Fats Navarro, stated famed jazz historian Ira Gitler, who happened to be supervising the
    1953 session that yielded part of Memorial. Indeed, trumpeter Clifford Brown is heard here in fine form in two unrelated sessions. On four selections,
    Brown coasts effortlessly along with Tadd Dameron's Orchestra, sharing the solo spotlight with Benny Golson on tenor and Gigi Gryce on alto. On the
    remainder of the album, composed from material cut in Sweden the same year, Brown is joined by fellow trumpeter Art Farmer for four Quincy Jones
    arrangements with a Swedish group that includes altoist Arne DomnÉrus, baritonist Lars Gullin, and pianist Bengt Hallberg. On whole, this is classic,
    sophisticated material that deserves a place in every jazz vinyl collection.

    Sun

    Sun is the first album of original material from Cat Power since her critically acclaimed 2006 album The Greatest and follow-up to her second covers album Jukebox which was released in 2008. In addition to the lead single Ruin, the 11-song set is highlighted by the New York City homage "Manhattan" and the 11-minute epic "Nothing But Time" which features backing vocals by Iggy Pop.



    Chan Marshall has moved on from her collaborative forays into Memphis soul and Delta blues. She wrote, played, recorded and produced the entirety of SUN by herself, a statement of complete control that is echoed in the songs' themes. The narrative arc of the record is deeply American in its spaciousness and optimism, but the music itself is defiantly modern and global.

    Hoi' Polloi

    Remastered Limited Edition Reissue

    Only 500 Copies Pressed


    Family Vineyard and Folk Evaluation proudly present the first authorized LP reissue of Richmond, Indiana's fabled Hoi' Polloi. The band's lone 1972 self-titled
    album, recorded over spring break at Earlham College by means of bouncing
    between two stereo tape decks, is a fantastic collection of country twangers,
    breathtaking singer-songwriter material, and bizarre tape cut-ups. With five songwriters in the band, what could have felt like another grab-bag student compilation instead feels like lost tapes of Emitt Rhodes hanging with Crosby, Stills, Nash
    and Young while Faust producer Uwe Nettlebeck makes a guest appearance in the
    control room.


    Remastered from the original ¼" tapes, this deluxe vinyl edition comes jampacked with extras: Extensive liner notes featuring Patrick 'The Lama' Lundborg's
    2003 conversation with the band (expanded with newly conducted interviews), a
    digital download of the album featuring the original stereo mix of "Satisfaction
    Guaranteed" and a wealth of bonus material from the band members' vaults,
    including rare cuts from Earlham's annual student-produced "Crucible" LPs and
    a collection of never-before-heard live recordings. Edition of 500 copies with reproduction of the original xerox insert

    Elvis At Stax

    1973 was a crucial year in the career of Elvis Presley. Riding high on the success of Elvis: Aloha From Hawaii via Satellite, which was seen by over 1 BILLION people, Elvis did something remarkable. He chose to take control of his own business. He sold his future royalties to RCA and he started a new publishing company. No one would tell him what to do ever again.


    Elvis decided that his next recording project would be on his home turf - at the red-hot STAX, the launching pad of such greats as Otis Redding, Wilson Pickett, Sam & Dave and Isaac Hayes. He assembled the very best musicians in town - members of The
    MGs, The Memphis Boys and his own TCB band to create the ultimate band and he searched for fresh new material that would reect his new path. Such
    songs as "I Got A Feelin' In My Body" and "Loving Arms" demonstrate an artist looking to broaden his palette and his reach.


    The STAX material, an amazing chapter of Elvis' career, has never been positioned as a whole
    body of work. Until now.

    A World Lit Only By Fire (Awaiting Repress)

    The first new long player from GODFLESH since 2001's 'Hymns' which saw the band implode and then eventually split up following its release. Since the band reformed in 2010 new material has slowly emerged. 'A World Lit Only By Fire', like the 'Decline & Fall' EP that came out in June, have been works in progress for almost 2 years.


    "The music speaks entirely for itself, this is pure Godflesh, as the concept was originallyintended; minimal, brutal, dissonant, driven by machines yet paradoxically dominated by organic and harsh down tuned guitars and bass, clean dub inflected vocals offset against harsh raging minimal shouts, and this is not to forget the worship of the omnipresent groove. Although the band could now be considered mature, and often with this maturity comes peace, this album has been perceived as the most aggressive and consistently fierce release in the band's career, something that the band are very proud of."


    Themes of futile battles against the institutions that control our everyday lives, social conditioning, submitting and resigning oneself to the savage within, slavery and the abuse of power permeate and fuel these songs.


    GODFLESH is Justin K Broadrick's yin to jesu's yang.

    Cadenza Black is optimized for an amazing tonal neutrality, dynamics and purity of sound. It is high performing on areas like detail, consistency and sound staging, while still retaining a fluid body and ample musicality.


    Nude Shibata Diamond


    The Cadenza Black model features a Nude Shibata stylus with a boron cantilever. The effective mass of the stylus/cantilever system is extremely low due to the use of a very thin boron rod. This material is extremely stiff and transmits sound vibrations faster than aluminium.


    It also uses the WRD (Wide Range Damping-system), controlling the high and low frequency damping separately.

    Limited To 100 Pieces Worldwide


    The MC Century represents the absolute top of Moving Coil cartridges. This state of the art product is truly exemplary of the highest degree of performance possible in contemporary analogue playback technology.



    The MC Century represents numerous Ortofon design elements and ideals:


    • The housing and the body of the cartridge are made in Titanium with SLM technique.
    • High performance iron-cobalt alloy is applied for some parts of the magnet system.
    • The armature damping system provides complete elimination of unwanted resonance.
    • Ortofon Replicant 100 diamond, thin and light, with an extraordinarily large contact surface, tracing accuracy unparalleled by any other needle in existence.
    • The crystal structure and exceptional hardness of the new Diamond cantilever ensures the best possible interface between the stylus and the armature.
    • The combination of Nude Ortofon Replicant 100 diamond on Diamond cantilever provides extremely responsive and transparent sound reproduction.

    Advancements in technology


    An engineering feature adding to the damping capability of the MC Century cartridge is the Selective Laser Melting process in which fine particles of Titanium are welded together, layer-by-layer, to construct a single piece body devoid of unnecessary material.


    Using this technique the density of the body can be precisely controlled, allowing for extremely high internal damping. The final result provides absolute freedom from resonances existing in the cartridge body material and allows for the MC Century to be perfectly matched with an extremely wide array of different tonearms.


    Because of the nature of SLM-based construction, each cartridge body is cosmetically unique and will show small dimples or lines under close examination.


    Extremely high-end materials


    Using expensive ultrapure oxygen free copper allows for zero-loss transmission of the diamonds movements via Diamond cantilever. This combination combines low moving mass with an extremely high degree of rigidity.


    The specially designed precision moulded non-magnetic armature achieves an extreme precision in each coil turn in all layers. The armature design allows a very well defined interface to the rubber absorbers. The material applied for the armature has very high strength and rigidity.


    The bottom cover has been constructed from a special proprietary TPE (Thermo-Plastic Elastomer) material, which provides extremely high damping.


    A low output impedance of 6 ohm and a low output voltage of 0.2 mV makes the Ortofon MC Century a perfect partner for most step-up transformers as well as active MC pre-amps, including the Ortofon ST-80 SE.

    Handcrafted in the USA


    The JUMBO SHRIMP shares key outward features found in many of its counterparts both past and present. It is a twochannel single-ended line level control preamplifier with five sets of stereo inputs, and two sets of paralleled stereo line outputs. A five-position input selector switch routes the chosen signal directly to the first amplifier tube's control grid. Amplified signals, boosted about 4 times [11.8 dB] are then fed through a dedicated White-Follower stage (using 5670 triodes) to effortlessly drive the (motorized!) high quality ALPS stereo variable attenuator, known for its stability, long life, ease of servicing and good inter-channel level tracking characteristics. This is followed by a similarly appealing, center-detented ALPS stereo balance potentiometer.


    The attenuator network output is then fed to a special White-follower output stage. This output circuit has been a favorite of ours for many years mainly due to the stage's inherently low output impedance, simplicity, wide bandwidth, ease of drive, modest feedback requirements and graceful overload characteristics. Ordinarily, the typical JUMBO SHRIMP user would not ever begin to approach the limits of this output stage under normal line and loading circumstances.


    High quality polypropylene dielectric film-and-foil capacitors have been employed at all signal-coupling points in the circuit along with two extravagant 30 microfarad metalized monsters coupling the output stage signals to the output RCA jacks. These are all MultiCaps made by our buddy Bas Lim at Rel Cap. We know you would rather listen to superior capacitors such as these over some cheap electrolytic capacitors like you might find in other gear.


    But the JUMBO SHRIMP's cardinal feature is its uncomplex non-inverting signal path. This minimal signal path approach is designed to bring unbalanced RCA-type line inputs up to levels suitable for proper drive of downstream power amplifiers in the simplest and most direct way possible. This is accomplished by using only three active stages, as described above, through the judicious use of vacuum tubes, whose purpose-designed application in audio amplifcation is, as always, pressed to full advantage. By so doing, the endeavor here is to provide the most direct, uncolored, quiet and wide-band signal path possible so that the native character of the chosen source material may be heard with out encumbrances from a set of imposed limitations brought on by the preamp. In this spirit, there are no provisions for balanced inputs or outputs. Since the whole guts of the Jumbo Shrimp are inherently single-ended, adding balanced I/O would require additional circuitry, transformers, or IC's which would inevitably color the sound.


    Lastly, we would be remiss if we did not mention the clever REMORA REMOTE CONTROL that comes standard with every Jumbo Shrimp. This little box commands the motorized ALPS volume control via radio frequency signals, so it works through doors, walls, cabinets, you name it!

    Who Me?

    "In contrast to his shambolic band's [the Beets] crude punkish impressions, the man's solo material hews more acoustic and bare, showcasing his warm voice and knack for, yes, poetry, that feels beamed in from a halcyon era." - Spin


    Over ten years ago, a teenage Juan Wauters came to New York from Uruguay. Quickly after his arrival to the Big Apple, he turned to music to take control of the loneliness that came with his new surroundings. However, his isolation didn't last long though and, in the Queen's neighborhood Jackson Heights, he formed The Beets with new friends, garnering a reputation that allowed him to record three albums and tour the United States extensively. As the band began to slow down in 2012, Juan had more to say and he kept
    going on his own with his debut solo album, N.A.P. North American Poetry, released on Captured Tracks in 2014.


    Who Me? is the next chapter in the ongoing story of Juan Wauters. Whereas his debut solo record was recorded casually over the course of one year, his new album was crafted in under two weeks at Future Apple Tree in Rock Island, Illinois. Inspired by both the arrangements of Uruguayan songwriter Jaime Roos and the production of American master Dr. Dre, this collection of songs presents his continued approach to existential questioning through pop music. Tracks like "She Might Get Shot" and "I Was Well," which may seem like wisdom addressed to the listener, are in fact part of Juan's reciprocal process of self-actualization through songwriting and performing. Bringing new sounds to his repertoire, "This Is I" and "Through That Red" add a spiritual tone with ethereal string arrangements. Juan's voice - which has risen to the forefront of his music since his first recordings with The Beets - intensifies with added nuance. This year Juan Wauters will continue to tour the world in support of his second solo record.

    Back To The Blues (Pure Pleasure)

    Although she was one of the most powerful and moving of the jazz singers, Dinah Washington suffered more than most from unimaginative and erratic backings. Many of her EmArcy recordings, notably those with Clifford Brown or Clark Terry on trumpet, had outstanding performances, but her collections were compromised by unsuitable accompaniment. This set of 12 blues gives a lop-sided picture in that it doesn't include any of her ballad performances. However, the basic big band settings allow the power and verve of her singing to come through, and confirm her as the best of the women singers with blues material. During the 1950s she had been regarded as an R&B performer but arranger and band-leader Fred Norman wrote these fine 1962 jazz settings for her shortly before her death.


    The material is strong and Washington soars and swings, her voice reaching many of the potent climaxes for which she was so highly regarded. The material runs through much of the traditional repertoire--Big Bill Broonzy, Leroy Carr and Lil Green being represented--and there is a nine-minute Nobody Knows The Way I Feel This Morning that is unique in her discography.

    Musicians:



    • Dinah Washington (vocals)
    • Illinois Jacquet, Eddie Chamblee (tenor saxophone)
    • Jack Wilson, Patti Bown (piano)
    • Jimmy Sigler (organ)
    • Everett Barksdale, Billy Butler (guitar)
    • George Duvivier (bass)
    • Jimmy Thomas, Osie Johnson (drums)



    Recording: March - November 1962 at Bell Sound Studios, New York

    Production: Henry Glover


    About Pure Pleasure



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.
