  1. I put all my Sade albums for sale when I bought the Box set. A person that was doing some work in my flat shows interest and asked me to play it. I’m so glad that he didn’t take it. It sounds so good. The Best of Sade MOV first pressing
  2. Future Islands - As Long As You Are. 33rpm on 4AD label. Just a very good album and one of my favourites currently.
  3. Herbie Hancock Round midnight OST, fantastic album
  4. Wilco Being There 2009 US Reissue on Nonesuch This reissue sounds simply stunning! Cut by BG & pressed bt Pallas. There’s also a later reissue which was cut by CB and pressed by RTI (US) & Optimal (EU). I wonder if these reissues sound as good?
  5. Looking forward for the one step MoFi of this gem. In the meantime spinning my first British pressing that sounds unreal
  6. Stomu Yamashta - Go Too Supporting artist Al diMeola is in fine form!
  7. Damn! Aside from his contributions to the Australian music industry, and a lot to be celebrated, this story is a little closer to home. Two years ago, late into the day on Sunday afternoon, a gentlemen entered our hi-fi show wearing non-descript shorts and a basic Tee. Certainly not dressed for any sort of occasion, he was taking much interest in the exhibits, asking many questions and clearly knew a thing or two about music and hi-fi. As he traversed the corridors he left an impression on many exhibitors, none of them aware it was Michael Gudinski. The sto
  8. Leonard Cohen - Popular Problems 2014 Columbia
  9. One of Australia’s most powerful music industry icons passes at the young age of 68 RIP Michael. Your brought us all so many great times
  10. Skyhooks - Living in the 70's Vale Michael Gudinski😪
  11. Howe Gelb - Future Standards. 33rpm on Fire Records. Very laid-back album and probably better suited to a late evening with a good single malt.
  12. You have heard of Altecs voice of the theatre - VOTT. He is my version - VOTA, voice of the audiophile. Altec 511B horns (powder coated and dampened) suspended in a dampened 5 ply box. FaitalPro compression drivers. These will sit on the large sealed box with Altronics 12” poly cone - 95 db efficient and with an fs=25hZ (so low). This combo should produce far more and deeper bass than the original VOTT at a tiny fraction the price. Xovers are complete to roll the horns in at 1100hz - 3rd order on the horns, 2nd on the woofer. System efficiency should be about 95db. Brake out
  13. So sad to have just seen this on Nine MSN too - as a Kylie fan and also a Madonna one - he brought Madonna to Australia in 1993 - "The Girlie Show" and that was one of the biggest highlights of my life - He did wonderful things for Aussie music as well as international tours and it will leave a huge hole .................😰
  14. I have just updated the Firmware on the Puffin and just playing a recent record addition to the collection A very good recording that in my opinion can be used as a test record Had a great time listening to this album Artist - Enoch Light And The Light Brigade ‎ Title - Provocative Percussion Album ID - https://www.discogs.com/Enoch-Light-And-The-Light-Brigade-Provocative-Percussion/release/11115271
  15. The Australian popular music industry would be less healthy today if it had not been for his pioneering work and belief in out talent. RIP.
  16. Digging into some black stuff...long time... Like most of the music that gives us memories, it’s from our past... Sure it doesn’t compete with full blown TT advocates....but sounds sweet 😎
  17. Just keep the pressing that sounds best and give the other one away.
  18. Further information: Selling my beautiful NAD M3 Master integrated Amplifier. This is possibly the best integrated amplifier ever made by NAD. Actually, it was designed for NAD by Bjorn Erik Edvardsen (Gryphon)! This is a true dual mono class AB, very different from and not to be confused with the M2, which looks similar but is a class D. It drives most speakers without breaking sweat, sweet and composed at all volume levels. Extremely detailed and 3 dimensional soundstage. Instruments are perfectly placed and vocals are lush and
  19. Hi All, Olafur Arnalds - Eulogy For Evolution
  20. Definitely. Although good cables can often make significant improvements in the sound of a given system, they are not a magic bullet and should not be used like tone controls.
  21. Whenever I listen to Guy McDonough sings Oh No Not You Again, always think that he was something of a larrikin.
  22. Paul Kelly and The Coloured Girls - Gossip. 2LP 33rpm on Mushroom label. I'm a Paul Kelly tragic and Dale and I would catch him live at the Espy and other venues around Melbourne every chance we got. I love his music and he was great live, on his own or with Uncle Bill [Gerry Hale] or the Stormwater Boys back in those days. Great to listen again to some of his older songs on vinyl from the mid '80s.
  23. Hello folks, I built these BR1s for my youngest daughter and we exhibited them at the last HiFi Show in Melbourne in late 2019 before she took possession. They are built from natural timber [not veneer], Camphor Laurel, and no paint was used, but rather they are finished with multiple applications of oil and bees wax. Cheers, Keith
  24. Melbourne is bit Cold day. So I had pull out this Bottle has given for my birthday over a year ago, Oh man it's so smooth/ sweet & a very light hints of Smoke. Not like ardbeg or Laphroaig SM Whisky. I 😍🥰😘 it
  25. Further information: I have had this little beauty for about 3 months. It’s roon certified and ready. I’ve included the website so you can have a read. I’ll include one of my 0.75ohm hybrid rca cables RR $1100 https://primare.net/product/np5-prisma-network-player/ Photos: PLEASE READ If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you don't include photographs
  26. The definitive number for accuracy is the inscription on the runout groove
  27. A man with an amazing history. How many stories would this bloke have. Gone too young. RIP Michael.
  28. Ok so lets assume amp requires 2.2v peak DAC outputs 300mV RMS when playing music (as per stereo coffee's argument). This is about 420mV Peak. So when playing music you will never get anywhere near your amp's possible power output. In that scenario (which seems pretty typical to me) it seems that a passive preamp is completely unsuitable. Quite the opposite, it seems to me like you need a preamp to add gain rather than attenuate. Or am I missing something
  29. Yes I like that as well One needs certainty on how many hours the stylus has clocked up so one knows how near it is for replacement
  30. Hi, I just read the entire thread. All 41 pages of triumph and drama, every post. Paid for my N7 last week, just waiting on confirmation of delivery timeframe now. Excited is an understatement.
  31. It's been a while since last update. There have been a few iterations of Line Magnetic gear coming through to test & run in. Some photos below.. LM-812 Iconic speakers running from LM-219iA integrated amplifier (845 tubes). LM-812 Iconic speakers running from AS-128 mono block amplifiers (212 tubes) fed by matching LM-129 Preamplifier. Such a BIG sound! Current arrangement - back to my Zu Audio Omen Def speakers running from the AS-125 integrated amplifier with Elrog 211 tubes installed. There is also a Wilson Bene
  32. Jimmy Barnes - Freight Train Heart. 33rpm on Mushroom label. What a great rock album and a perfect follow up to Working Class Man.
  33. Al Stewart - 24 PCarrots It's a bit rockier than I expected - still those pleasingly twee vocals and whatnot, the subject matter isn't as much of the strange historical stuff on Time Passages/Year of the Cat but it's unmistakeably him. Not bad! Pity about the state of the cover - grabbed this and "Russians and Americans" from a charity shop, thankfully the records are in good nick.
  34. Jimmy Barnes - For The Working Class Man. 2LP 33rpm on Mushroom label. Sticking with the oz rock and sounding great too.
  35. Went on a road trip this week for work, did manage to find a bit of second hand vinyl in odd places but also came home to some that I ordered from discogs. here's a sample of this mornings listening. David Bowie - Let's Dance. Despite the ubiquity of the songs from side 1 I still love it after all these years. Originally owned the cassette now have a lovely original Aus pressing and it is fantastic. Gerry Rafferty - Night Owl. In perfect nick and sounding great. Mental as Anything - Cats and Dogs. My favourite of their albums and the cover is brilliant. Fleetwood Mac -
