  1. Nissan Stagea + MacQuarie Pass = Heaven

    What do you expect - Its a Ford. I would not piss on a Ford after my experiences with their shite Territory. Bad to see they are still shite.
  2. Brinkman 10.5 tonearm - WOW

    do you have a mono cartridge?
  3. Seems quite a pointless exercise from Sharp. They are no longer manufacturing TV's and sold their name and rights to Hisense.. a bit like Hitachi. Hitachi used to make world class TV's with super quality - now the brand name for Hitachi's TV's are owned and used by a Chinese company and the quality is nowhere near as good as they used to be.
  4. NRL Footy Tipping

    all example of piss poor refereeing in the 2nd half. Broncs seem to be wrestling a lot more than when I watched them 6 weeks ago. If you can't beat them, join them right. That is a pity as generally the Broncs are one of the teams that do play in the right spirit - except your 3 thugs of course 3rd man was good tonight.

    Pet Shop Boys - Behaviour. original UK pressing
  6. NRL Footy Tipping

    the refs tried their best to keep the Dragons in the match in the 2nd half. Ultimately the Dragons did not take advantage of the ref's leg ups. I agree, piss poor referring.
  7. Marlon Williams - self tilted. beautiful album from the Kiwi from Christchurch.
  8. Lyra well looked after can do at least 3000 hours. the Etna is my first cartridge purchase since Feb 2012 (except my cheap AT33MONO and Delos I use on another table). I could not wait the up to 6 months for the Atlas to be rebuilt as a SL. perhaps you should give them a go
  9. thanks Greg. too early for that comparison but its in the same class. I am just enjoying spinning some vinyl after a week away. cheers
  10. thanks. only playing first side after nervously setting up only the 2nd cart on the Thales sounds pretty magical especially with vocals off the bat - this is a keeper. Reinforces that my Atlas needed to go to Lyra for a rebuild after 5 1/2 years of pure pleasure. Expensive - yes - however I find expensive is when you don't play something and end up selling it. hard to get off that merry go round sometimes. Lyra for me has never been that. cheers

    Neville Brothers - Brothers Keepers - delightful album
  12. Thanks James. I had to choose my timew as after 11:30 am each day it was pretty hard to get many close shots. The large Steinheim speakers in the large Jadis room did nothing for me. Dry sounding and not very dynamic especially micro dynamics. Yvette sounded a lot better on the 3rd day., but behind the Albedo and Avalon speakers. Like many turntables in HK, they seemed to be more for show than playing. I never heard the Kronos playing. The styling leaves me cold to be honest - reminds of some nerdy meccano look. It was good to meet sna crew @Marc, @Stump, @rusty48, and catch up with @DEQX and @kramered Bought nothing audio oriented, but did invest in the HK economy by drinking and eating far too much, helped a lot by the sna crew
  13. Next Gen OLED TVs

    Keith. They are 77 inch. I saw both the LG and the Sony in Harrods in May. Mouthwatering. When they get down $6k or close I will buy one. Until then I will continue to enjoy the awesome X75C.
  14. Is it internally wired for the additional switching with copper or silver wire?
