    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.

    Integrated VPI Step Up Transformer - CineMag 1131

    This fully integrated Step-up Transformer/VPI Interface Box was specifically created to improve the performance of your VPI turntable when used with a low output Moving Coil Phono Cartridge. It replaces the standard VPI Interface Box with a unit that combines the top of the line Bob's Devices exclusive "Blue Series" CineMag 1131 Step Up Transformers with the VPI Interface Box. This unit eliminates a set of interconnects and connectors in the phono playback circuit. The path between the moving coil cartridge and the phono preamplifier is as critical as it is sensitive due to the low voltage and current being transmitted. Further, this path is also subject to RF and other interference. You will hear the difference by streamlining this path - "the fewer stones in the road the smoother the ride."


    This Bob's Devices VPI-SUT replaces the standard VPI interface box on the following arms where the interface box is directly attached to the tonearm base/platform : JMW 12.7, JMW 12.6, JMW 12.5, JMW 9T, JMW 9S, JMW C2, JMW C3, Classic, JMW 10, and JMW 10.5i (and other heritage JMW arms - contact us for specific applications). It will not work where the interface box is mounted directly to the plinth.


    You will, "Hear the Magic!"

    200-Gram Vinyl Pressed At Quality Record Pressings


    All-Analog Mastering By Ryan K. Smith At Sterling Sound From The Original Tapes


    Deluxe Tip-On Gatefold Jacket From Stoughton Printing


    On 1989's In Step, Vaughan found his own songwriting voice, blending blues, soul, and rock in unique ways, and writing with startling emotional honesty. Yes, there are a few covers, all well chosen, but the heart of the album rests in the songs he cowrote with Doyle Bramhall, the man who penned the Soul to Soul highlight "Change It." Fueled by a desire to make up for lost time and delight in his reawakened commitment to life and sobriety, Vaughan turned in what many consider his greatest artistic statement, an album ensconced in sweat, soul, determination, and not an ounce of filler.


    "Travis Walk" offers a heady rush of flat-picking, "The House is Rockin'" is full-tilt roots-boogie, "Let Me Love You Baby" and "Leave My Girl Alone" are sweet blues epiphanies, and the nine-minute instrumental "Riviera Paradise" is a truly soulful mix of blues and jazz. By now, just a year before his untimely death, Vaughan had also tamed his bawling voice into a rich instrument. In short, this 1989 session is Vaughan at his artistic peak.


    In Step remains one of the five greatest blues records of the past quarter century. There's not a link in this chain that wasn't absolute first-rate. The absolute best that money can buy. We're passionate about the blues AND Stevie Ray and the passion shows up here in spades.

    One Step Closer


    First Time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl & Gatefold Cover Presentation


    Mastered Impeccably By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music & Capitol Mastering


    Known for their ability of churning out hit songs, top charting albums and sell-out shows across the globe, The Doobie Brothers continue to be a force in the music business garnering them success now for over four decades. They were also in the forefront of making excellent sounding recordings, utilizing their masterful skills in the studios, and their amazing catalog of albums have all stood the test of time.


    1980 was a huge year for the Grammy Award winning band as they took their Bay Area soul and rock driven sounds to a further dimension thanks to the hits on their ninth smash LP in a row with One Step Closer.


    Produced by Ted Templeman, this multi-platinum event would go on to become one of the most successful albums by The Doobie Brothers as the LP gave them a huge top five single with the Michael McDonald tour de force Real Love.


    The hard rockin' and soulful masterwork yielded more hits like the fine vocal work of the sorely missed Cornelius Bumpus (Moby Grape/Steely Dan) on Thank You Love and the hit single One Step Closer. Patrick Simmons as usual wails on lead guitar throughout with latest guitarist John McFee (Elvis Costello/Steve Miller) on tunes like Keep This Train-A-Rollin' and the rocker No Stoppin' Us Now.


    Friday Music is proud once again to offer another installment in our popular Doobie Brothers 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series with their masterpiece One Step Closer. Impeccably mastered by Joe Reagoso (Doobie Brothers/Michael McDonald) from the original Warner Bros. tapes at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Mastering, the top five Lp sounds incredibly rockin' and soulful as you remember it.


    As an added anniversary bonus, we are presenting the audiophile limited edition album in a first time gatefold cover, with artwork elements not seen in years, enhancing your Doobie Brothers listening experience even further.

    In Step

    Import

    The Grammy Award Winning album In Step is Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Troubles fourth studio, originally released in 1989. Stevie Ray had recently become sober, after years of drug and alcohol abuse. This is a recurring theme on the album.


    The response to In Step was very positive. Allmusic rated In Step 5 out of 5 stars claiming it's fully realized, presenting every facet of Vaughan's musical personality, yet it still soars with a sense of discovery... and Lou Reed selected In Step as one of his picks in 1989. While the album reached number 33 in the Billboard 200, the single Crossfire reached number 1 in the Mainstream Rock Chart.


    Unfortunately In Step proved to be Stevie Rays last album with Double Trouble before his untimely death, caused by a helicopter crash, in 1990.

    Step Back

    Blues legend Johnny Winter will release a new studio album, Step Back, via Megaforce Records. The album, the followup to 2011's Roots, will find Winter exploring a more aggressive vintage-blues style.


    The album also will feature a host of special guests, including Eric Clapton, Ben Harper, Billy Gibbons, Joe Perry, Dr. John, Leslie West, Brian Setzer and Joe Bonnamassa.


    "If there's good people, other good musicians, people enjoy it. I just love it, Winter says. [Step Back] is just to bring it to the people of today who haven't listened to the old music. It's better than anything they hear today.


    Produced by Winter's guitarist, Paul Nelson, Step Back opens with "Unchain My Heart," which features Winter and his band joined by the Blues Brothers horns. ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons is featured on "Where Can You Be."


    "I never had the opportunity to jam with him [in the Sixties and Seventies]," Gibbons says. "I was content to remain in awe and admiration."


    "If it weren't for Johnny Winter, I would have never picked up the guitar," adds Aerosmith's Joe Perry, who joins Winter on Lightnin' Hopkins' "Mojo Hand."


    Other highlights include Winter's guitar and vocal trade-offs with Harper on Willie Dixon's "Can't Hold Out (Talk to Me Baby)," Winter and Clapton's rendition of Bobby Bland's "Don't Want No Woman" and Winter and Dr. John honoring Fats Domino with "Blue Monday."


    "When you hear that sound come out of that Firebird guitar, you know it can be the one and only Johnny Winter," says Setzer, who is featured on Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown's "Okie Dokie Stomp."

    Stepping Out

    Stepping Out launched the career of one of our generation's greatest Jazz artists. "Diana Krall's 1993 debut shows that she had the goods right from the get-go. Krall sings with honesty, subtlety, and persuasion while playing the piano with head-shaking authority, both as accompanist - she offers amazing asides in between vocal phrases - and as an absolutely A-one improviser." (Zan Stewart). The Justin Time Essentials Collection introduces the album to a new generation of fans, but this time with an added bonus track from the original sessions - Diana's incredible arrangement of "Summertime".

    Dynamite Steps

    Greg Dulli and Co. Return With Their Most Ambitious, Cohesive Record to Date


    Extraordinary Singing and Transcendent Arrangements


    Whenever youre here, youre alive are the first words sung on Dynamite Steps, the fifth album from Greg Dullis Twilight Singers collective, and the groups first in five years. The Twilight Singers previous release, the acclaimed confessional opus Powder Burns, came out in 2006.


    Dynamite Steps is clearly the next chapter, a whole new level of catharsis and progress, evocatively cramming all the highs and lows of the maverick singer/songwriters past half-decade into unexpected sonic trapdoors. Shot on location at various locales significant to Dullis life, you can hear the sense of place emanating up from the grooves of Dynamite Steps. Here, the weary nighttime decadence of New Orleans rubs up against the oppressive sunshine of Los Angeles and the desolation of Joshua Trees desert vistas.


    Dynamite Steps explores the thin line between life and death, mortality and immortality, resignation and celebration that mythical moment when your life flashes before your eyes, drawn out here over the course of eleven songs. The albums forty-three minutes prove an unflinching odyssey through the dark side, but one thats ultimately redemptive in its scope and power.

    Giant Steps (Mono Remaster)

    Mono Remaster


    History will undoubtedly enshrine this disc as a watershed the likes of which may never truly be appreciated. Giant Steps bore the double-edged sword of furthering the cause of the music as well as delivering it to an increasingly mainstream audience.


    Although this was John Coltrane's debut for Atlantic, he was concurrently performing and recording with Miles Davis. Within the space of less than three weeks, Coltrane would complete his work with Davis and company on another genre-defining disc, Kind of Blue, before commencing his efforts on this one.


    Coltrane (tenor sax) is flanked by essentially two different trios. Recording commenced in early May of 1959 with a pair of sessions that featured Tommy Flanagan (piano) and Art Taylor (drums), as well as Paul Chambers -- who was the only band member other than Coltrane to have performed on every date. When recording resumed in December of that year, Wynton Kelly (piano) and Jimmy Cobb (drums) were instated -- replicating the lineup featured on Kind of Blue, sans Miles Davis of course.


    At the heart of these recordings, however, is the laser-beam focus of Coltrane's tenor solos. All seven pieces issued on the original Giant Steps are likewise Coltrane compositions. He was, in essence, beginning to rewrite the jazz canon with material that would be centered on solos -- the 180-degree antithesis of the art form up to that point. These arrangements would create a place for the solo to become infinitely more compelling. This would culminate in a frenetic performance style that noted jazz journalist Ira Gitler accurately dubbed sheets of sound. Coltrane's polytonal torrents extricate the amicable and otherwise cordial solos that had begun decaying the very exigency of the genre -- turning it into the equivalent of easy listening.


    He wastes no time as the disc's title track immediately indicates a progression from which there would be no looking back. Line upon line of highly cerebral improvisation snake between the melody and solos, practically fusing the two. The resolute intensity of Countdown does more to modernize jazz in 141 seconds than many artists do in their entire careers. Tellingly, the contrasting and ultimately pastoral Naima was the last tune to be recorded, and is the only track on the original long-player to feature the Kind of Blue quartet. What is lost in tempo is more than recouped in intrinsic melodic beauty.

    2 Steps From The Middle Ages

    Pressed On Translucent Orange Vinyl


    Packaging Includes Rare And Previously Unseen Photos From The Band's Photographer, Robert Toren


    The Reissue Also Features Essays From Easter, Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star), And Franklin Bruno (The Village Voice, Salon.com)


    Their final studio album - remastered and expanded! Following up 1987's Lolita Nation (whose reissue appeared on numerous year-end "best of" lists for 2016) would be no easy task for Game Theory. But, Scott Miller and company were certainly up for the task.


    Re-teaming with producer Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Marshall Crenshaw, Velvet Crush), 2 Steps From The Middle Ages was released in 1988 and showed the band had no shortage of energy, experimentation, and excellent material.


    The first pressing of this LP reissue, on vinyl for the first time since its initial release, comes on translucent orange colored vinyl. Packaging includes rare and previously unseen photos from the band's photographer, Robert Toren, as well as essays from Easter, Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star), and Franklin Bruno (The Village Voice, Salon.com).


    The band's drummer, Gil Ray, who was involved in all aspects of the Game Theory reissue series including this title, sadly passed away earlier this year. This reissue is lovingly dedicated to him.


    As the first track says, there's "room for one more, honey." That 1 more is 2 Steps From The Middle Ages.

    In 1963, Miles Davis was at a transitional point in his career, without a regular group and wondering what his future musical direction would be. At the time he recorded the music heard on this disc, he was in the process of forming a new band, as can be seen from the personnel: tenor saxophonist George Coleman, Victor Feldman (who turned down the job) and Herbie Hancock on pianos, bassist Ron Carter, and Frank Butler and Tony Williams on drums. Recorded at two separate sessions, this set is highlighted by the classic Seven Steps To Heaven, Joshua and slow passionate versions of Basin Street Blues and Baby Won't You Please Come Home.

    Hybrid Theory

    When the first track from a band's debut album gets added to major rock stations four weeks before its official release, it must be something very special. That's the case with One Step Closer from Linkin Park's first album, Hybrid Theory. Built on an aggressive hard rock foundation, flavored with hip-hop vocal stylings and electronic fourishes, as melodic as it is confrontational, with a strong lyrical message, Linkin Park is diverse and unique. It's also one step closer to scoring an important debut album - and that's not just theory. Certified Multi-Platinum (8 times) by the RIAA. (4/02)

    Souvenir Part 1

    The ensemble TrondheimSolistene was founded in 1988 by Bjarne Fiskum, and was for many years an arena for professional concert training for string-players at the Conservatory in Trondheim. As a result of many concerts throughout Europe as well as concert tours to the United States, Japan and Brazil, the TrondheimSolistene has grown to be an ensemble of international renown, receiving much critical acclaim and attracting attention with its combination of high standards, youthful vigor and lively enthusiasm for the music.


    New collaborations have pleased both performers and audiences alike, and the orchestra has been noted for its considerable musical versatility, performing music from the baroque and romantic repertoires as well as tango, jazz, rock and contemporary music. The ensemble is an important advocate of Norwegian music, has commissioned and given premiers of several works and invariably includes Norwegian works in its concert tour programs. TrondheimSolistenes discography includes over twenty recordings. Øyvind Gimse was appointed artistic director of TrondheimSolistene in 2002, continuing the ensembles broad programming profile and musical versatility. TrondheimSolistene collaborates regularly with soloists such as Leif Ove Andsnes, Martin Fröst, Joshua Bell, Ole Edvard Antonsen, Arve Tellefsen and Anne-Sophie Mutter.


    Through its dynamic co-operation TrondheimSolistene (the Trondheim Soloists) and 2L has always stretched the boundaries of what is possible to convey to the listener, aiming for the ultimate recorded listening experience. With the Serenade the team has taken things one step further with the TrondheimSolistene truly justifying their name. By placing each individual next to someone from a different voice rather than sitting in conventional sections we are working at the very outer limits of what is possible and creating chamber music at the highest level - Øyvind Gimse, 2012.


    2L allocated two weeks in 2011 to record this new album. Artistic director Øyvind Gimse and his associate Geir Inge Lotsberg initially chose two pieces that represent, in their estimation, the most beautiful music ever composed for the string orchestra: Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence and his Serenade for Strings. Aiming for a 90 minute program left 30 more minutes to record. So the orchestra and 2L logged on to Facebook and asked the listeners worldwide what they'd like to hear. And the audience responded: Nielsen's Suite Opus 1. A little gem that would exploit the Trondheim Soloists' singular way with Nordic repertoire.


    Inspired by Morten Lindberg's extensive work with choral music, the Tchaikovsky's Serenade was recorded with the ensemble placed in mixed voices, meaning no one is sitting beside anyone playing the same part, creating a totally new soundscape to the music. Carl Nielsen's Suite opus 1 is recorded in a more traditional way in these sessions.

    Ultra High quality laminations, lower inductance and superior sound. These transformers were especially designed and tested with several low-output moving coil cartridges. These are very difficult transformers to construct and require a precision manufacturing process that can only be done by David Geren at CineMag.


    Includes premium construction with C&K Brand Silver contact toggle switches, and Deluxe Gold Plated RCA jacks.


    These specially designed transformers are wired to connect a moving coil cartridge (on a turntable) to a phono preamplifier, phono input of a receiver, or your preamp's phono input.


    Switchable for 1:20 (26 dB gain) or 1:40 (32 dB gain).


    Into a standard 47k phono preamp, the effective input impedance of the low gain (1:20 ratio) is 118 ohms. At 1:40, the effective input impedance is 29 ohms.


    The 1:40 ratio is perfect for those extremely low output cartridges including some by Audio Notes and Ortofon SPU.
