  1. But at least your response would finally be flat
  2. Any bit of equipment that can't play the tune , if it is known to be there in the original recording. Think hifi sounding but sterile. As an example , I had in the house original Audiolab 8000c and dual mono power amps ; beautifully built but boring as bat ****.
  3. Aus post will do nothing for 'valves damaged in transit' , trust me ,been there with a much more expensive pair of 300b's which I packed extremely well. Paypal or Ebay will be the way to go.
  4. Pity they stuck with those hifi sounding Sabre dacs for the new top end player.
  5. Great turntable Lindsay and a bargain at that price. Hope it suits your needs.
  6. Hi Rob , Jantzen Superior Z caps are worth a try as they have a less etched quality than the Mundorf Silver oil while otherwise being neutral and detailed and are transparent to musicality if it is in the recording. Available from Speakerbug in Australia at very reasonable prices : https://speakerbug.com.au/index.php?route=product/product&path=25_31&product_id=404
  7. He he , thought that might be the case but then I had had a few libations too.:)
  8. Sorry Lindsay but that is nonsense.
  9. Prices are getting stupid for old Lp12's but worth keeping an ear out for. Even older than 80's spec should way outperform a p2 or p3 once setup.
  10. I don't have a lot of experience of the Rega decks but did have one of the Planar3 variants with Rega cart through the house a few year ago and was not bowled over. I like the RB300 arm on other tt's. Here's the thing, with tt's you do need to spend : my advice would be an old Lp12 if you can find one under a grand. Put new springs washers and grommets in the Lp12 ,service it and you should hear a clear upgrade.
  11. Lovely sounding speakers , accurate and musical
  12. Will be very interested to hear the results. Have pretty much moved over to using computer audio most of the time. Have a great afternoon guys.
  13. Yep , many of the Ariston suspended designs were harder to get a perfect bounce with than the Lp12. With the RD 11 and it's variants Linn's post 1992 springs and grommets could be used and the job became much easier. I had an RD11 Superieur as my first high-end deck and it worked well with the Linn springs and grommets.
  14. I am sure if you asked the sales person at Bunnings they would give you all the info you need to fabricate the carcass. As for vinyl wrapping, there are many videos on You tube showing you how to do it , which is how I got the info . https://www.bunnings.com.au/zenith-10g-x-40mm-countersunk-ribbed-head-chipboard-screws-22-pack_p2420237 https://www.bunnings.com.au/boyle-100ml-balsa-wood-pva-glue_p1660712 https://www.bunnings.com.au/custompine-1800-x-595-x-16mm-white-melamine-shelving_p0570018
