  1. This thread has lost all semblance of its previous life.
  2. I dont think there is a very much higher authority around than some guy named Trevor who worked at Marantz during their glorious '70s receiver battles with Pioneer. Cant think how youd find him, you need a detective. Ive got a 2238 and a 2240B. I also have a Pioneer sx-5530. All good fun and very pretty.

Sometimes if you push it in the right direction it will continue that direction and play fine. Apparently this isn't completely unusual."

  5. I have had 2 similar experiences in Windsor, in the last 18 months. I didnt think I looked like a fool. I felt like one twice.

  7. Man walks out of a bottleshop with a slab of beer. Shapely woman holds the door open for him, and he thanks her. Say, she says with smile, you wouldnt consider swapping some beer for sex would you? He thinks for a moment and says Well yes maybe. But what beer have you got?
  8. The Folk Singer by Muddy Waters and It serves you right to suffer by John Lee Hooker are highly regarded recordings of greats in their prime. The vinyl is excellent for both. My favorite in this Blues Genre is King Curtis Trouble in Mind which transcends this category to be my No 1 album. Some good copies of the re-issue from 1987 are around. My next favourite is Ry Cooder's Smack Dab in the Middle- due to great production values and great band. Thanks for the tips on Willies Blues. And Ive now refreshed Stardust by another Willie. Great Thread.
  9. Was watching the Blue, finished at $222 then pulled because it was "out of stock" I was then immediately informed I can buy it now for $329.00. Grouse.
  10. http://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/east-maitland/armchairs/replica-eames-lounge-chair/1108832173 looks good value if in NSW
  11. Thanks Metrik More than Id hoped to get away with and another chunk of space, but a very nice unit. I shall enquire.
  12. I imported an SX-5530 from Poland earlier last year. Very much the little brother of the above.Gotta love the black vintage receivers.The Marantz 22xx ones are beautiful too.
