Buy It, Clean It, Play It!

13th March 2015

A pop-up record shop from Clym’s Records.

Sponsored by VPI, manufacturer of turntables and record cleaning machines.

Come and listen to a wide selection of vinyl… From pop LPs and 12″ singles (including Bob Dylan’s Love And Theft, The Cure’s Wild Mood Swings, Iron Maiden’s Fear of the Dark and more) to classical LPs via indie/punk/new wave/soul and reggae 7″ singles! There will definitely be something for everyone.

There will be about 600-800 classical LPs and 100-150 classical box sets. They will cover orchestral, instrumental, chamber, ballet, vocal, opera and choral music from early, baroque, classical and modern classical periods.

There will also be a good selection of mono, stereo and digital LPs from the 1950s through to the early 1990s on the main labels: EMI ASD series, Decca SXL & LXT series, DGG, Philips, RCA, Mercury & CBS as well as others on minor labels. Plus a good number of LPs from the TAS/HP audiophile list.

Here is a wee taster of the classical LPs you can expect to find on the day:

About Clym, in his own words:
“I’ve been buying and selling records as a hobby since the late 80s and as my full-time job since 2010. I’ve acquired the records from collections, record shops and online. After buying the records I clean and repair the sleeves, replace any tatty or incorrect vintage inner sleeves, clean the records on my VPI Typhoon record cleaner and audition them to check their condition.”

We will have our demo rooms set up with turntable based systems as well as individual listening stations in the form of Nomad turntables fitted with KEF M 500 headphones. There will be promotions on the day too!

HD – no really – Super High Vision or 8k Ultra High Definition

14th August 2012

Our very own Allan Boyd was at a special screening at BBC Scotland, Pacific Quay of selected highlights from the Olympics filmed bv NHK in 8k Super High Vision with a 22.2 channel surround sound system.

Filmed via one of only a handful of  Super High Vision Cameras in the world  alongside a revolutionary 22 channel live recording facility – the signal was broadcast over “JANET” The UK’s research and development – superfast 400Gbit/s high bandwith network.

The event had a capacity of around 100 people with a wall filling screen which must have easily been 8m wide. The 33.2 mega pixel image at 120 Frames/sec was projected  via a heavily modified JVC Dila Projector (£4k with e-shift) Sound was via a Yamaha Processor and RCF Monitors.

“It was an amazinginly immersive experience – the clarity on the image combined with the sheer variety of atmospheric sound coming at you from every angle – took the viewer straight into the middle of the performance.” “Watching Chris Hoy as he approached the finish line – the volume of the crowd seemingly around you just built and built – I was tempted to stand up and cheer as I felt everyone else around me already had.” We may be a few years away from seeing anything like this technology available in the home – however this is undoubtedly the future and its really exciting.

Making of a Legend,

24th May 2012

Driven by my own passion for the music of Bob Marley, Loud & Clear Edinburgh will present ‘Catch a Fire’ on glorious vinyl during this year’s record shop & music weekend at Bonnington Mill and that’s just the start of it!

Each year we are joined by those nice guys from Diverse Vinyl for our annual Vinyl Day. This year we are moving the date to August and making it a full weekend of Music, Art & Entertainment. We will have classic album sessions, live music sessions, vinyl for sale, new product launches and much more over the whole weekend. Some events will be ticketed, and numbers restricted, so book early and you will also get a chance to grab some special new vinyl releases.

Full timetable will be published at the end of June, but keep the weekend free, book a trip to Edinburgh and enjoy the world’s biggest arts festival which now includes Loud & Clear.

Epson's Ultimate Full HD 3D Projector

3rd April 2012

Experience a new cinematic adventure with Epson’s EH-TW9000 top of-the range Full HD projector with brighter, high definition 2D and 3D viewing.

Epson’s new high-end projector the EH-TW9000 allows you to easily convert 2D high definition content into Full HD 3D at the touch of a button. An internal microchip (the Integrated Circuit or IC chip) analyses the image and splits it into various levels of depth, which at the end it will re-combine in order to create a sense of perspective in the scene.

At the same time all the objects in the 2D picture are identified in order to develop an embossed model of each. It uses these two techniques to simulate the ‘parallax’ images (the paired set of left and right eye images). The resulting image is then put back together by the projector and shown on the screen, so creating 3D pictures which are as natural as if you were looking out of your window.


On permanent demonstration in Glasgow’s Theatre 1
