    Something I haven't listened to in at least a year, and perfect for a relaxed Friday night; SQ is excellent on the current rig, heaps of stuff I've never heard before!! Gotye- Making Mirrors Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  2. I still remember when I was about 7, following my dad around a plumbing store as he talked himself through the parts he needed to buy. I said "Dad, why are they called male and female?" He stopped for a second or two, then as he turned away from me and continued walking, he said "they're named after the sex organs". I reckon he was pretty red-faced. [emoji38] So yeah you need "male" iec plugs (male=plug, female=socket) to connect to the ps audio, which rules out most things with an external power supply. PS despite being technically correct, I'd recommend not calling your wife/girlfriend a "socket" [emoji38] Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk

    Yeah; unfortunately I've got quite a few in my collection! Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk

    Disctronics CDs are notorious for sounding crap; harsh and glarey top end, and no bottom end. Better than no pressing, but only just! Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  5. hello from the Gong

    Hi Rustee, and welcome to SNA! Agreed with what Rantan said, be patient with upgrades, and pay attention to the stuff before the speakers!!!! And most importantly, enjoy spinning tunes, both old and new! Cheers from another 'Gongian. :-) Wiffle

    Kerryn Fields - Rascal I believe she's from Melbourne, and if you like Emmy Lou Harris I think you'll love Kerryn. Her voice is quite stunning!! I got it through Bandcamp I think...

    Felt like some funky bass beats; went scrolling through my library and these guys caught my eye. A few selected tracks from Picture Book and A New Flame, then the whole of: Simply Red- Stars They're a bit cheesy at times, but the basslines always kick butt! [emoji38] SQ is exceptional BTW, a lot of work obviously went into recording/mixing/mastering [emoji106]
  10. DIY audio: what are you building?

    Sonny Landreth- Bound by the Blues Another recommendation from SNA, I think it was on the blues thread. Lordy, Lordy; what an amazing album!!!!! Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk

    @Hensa & @metal_beat I've listened to both those albums within the last week; both great albums, and agree that royal blood's sound is incredible! I only recently rediscovered Enya; within it's own style her stuff really is beautiful! [emoji106][emoji111] Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk
  13. Aurum Cantus F620 speakers

    I got a set of isoacoustics isolation feet from Sydney HiFi for my Wyndham Audio BR1's. Not particularly cheap, but they are ideal for hard floors to prevent movement and marking, and they made a big improvement to bottom end dynamics. FWIW [emoji5] Sent from my SM-G900I using Tapatalk

    Hole- Live Through This Seems I'm on a bit of a 90s thing atm; whatever. This is a really great album any way you spin it. SQ is excellent too, obviously a lot of effort went into recording/mixing/mastering. Courtney might be a fruit bat, but she wrote some excellent music. [emoji5]
  15. Redgum Black series RGi120ENR

    The review you've linked to relates to an older, and fundamentally different Redgum amplifier, so to the OP I'd say take this with a grain of salt. I have owned a Redgum SonofaGum for around 6 years, and until recently I also owned a Redgum RGI60ENR. Both amplifiers have sounded excellent and been nothing but utterly reliable. Redgum have a "minimal intervention" approach to design; it's not the way many others do it (nor necessarily the only good way), but it certainly works at delivering quality sound with plenty of dynamic drive. Add to that excellent local support direct from the manufacturer and a generous warranty, and I think they're a very safe bet. If you're prepared to go down the pre-power route, I suggest also looking at Holton Precision Audio. The 3-0-0 would also meet your needs in terms of power and current drive and stability, and again you're dealing with a local manufacturer so excellent support. In any case, in my personal experience with Redgum I have had nothing but positive results; likewise with Holton. A lot of people want to pass on second-hand opinions; you won't find many people who've owned Redgum amps who aren't happy with them. :-) My2c
