  1. Keep a look out in the SNA classifieds. From memory, April Snow paid around $450 (shipped) for hers.
  2. Thanks for the info. I've emailed Magenta and they have rung me back. It's now a question of board replacement and whether the parts are available from PS Audio in the US.
  3. My PS Audio NuWave DAC lost it's USB connection with my desktop PC following a power outage. It's optical and coaxial connections still work fine. It's definitely the DAC at fault as I've tried it with other PCs - still no USB connection. I have also plugged a spare DAC into my desktop PC - USB connection restored. I emailed the service department at PS Audio in the States several days ago but have not received a reply. I'm hoping a fellow inmate here on SNA can direct me to a authorised repairer, preferable here in Queensland (Brisbane).
  4. 1993 BMW K1100RS. "Broom Hilda". Named so as she has a fat arse (the panniers are the widest point on the bike). I bought her 25 years ago from Rob Duncan of Motohansa fame. Shot taken at Mt. Kosciuszko car park. It was minus 7 degrees in April!. Thank God for the BMW heated grips and the BMW heated vest that I was wearing that day.
  5. Welcome aboard Vaughan. I'm out at Ipswich. I suggest you take a look at https://www.queenslandaudio.club/
  6. Matt Humeniuk Mr. Plastics Unit 5 / 20 Herbert Street Slacks Creek QLd 4127 Mobile: 0412473606 Factory: 0732906188 Email: mr.plastics@optusnet.com.au I've used him before. Nice bloke. Easy to talk to. He makes the lids for Decibel HiFi, who charge $250 for a $125 lid from him. His brother advertises turntable restoration at Logan on Gumtree.
  7. Welcome to the asylum 😁
  8. AV Digitech's warranty is not worth the paper it is written on. Stay clear of them Ben. Contact me of list and I will explain the problems I had with them.
  9. I use a brass clamp on the Kuzma (it came with one). I learnt the hard way not to leave it on the spindle here in SE QLD's subtropical environment. Kuzma use a high carbon steel spindle and the clamp stuck to the spindle. It took several go's with 1000 & 2000 grit wet & dry and then an application of Autosol polish to clean up the spindle. https://sightandsoundgallery.com/products/kuzma-replacement-flat-belt I also use a 1.3kg brass outer ring clamp on the Kuzma. https://www.kuzma.si/outer-clamp-soon.html I use a Chinese brass one with an inbuilt spirit level I bought of
  10. If that's the case a SRM mat might just do the trick. http://srm-tech.co.uk/epages/4c008923-2265-416e-a207-cc9dd8b06028.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/4c008923-2265-416e-a207-cc9dd8b06028/Products/APM1 https://www.vinylengine.com/turntable_forum/viewtopic.php?t=14156&start=15 https://www.amazon.co.uk/SRM-TECH-Acrylic-Turntable-Platter-Clear/dp/B00J2YUK5U I bought one of their TT bases for a LP12. I copied it and made a similar one out of 3mm acrylic sheet for my Pink Triangle TT.
  11. Your shout Bill? I prefer a single malt ☺️
  12. We did a mat comparison at a QAC manufacturers showcase meeting that was held at Decibel HiFi in February 2016.. We could hear audible differences between the mats. Most members who attended preferred the George E Merrell mat. It is a rubber / cork composite. I run one on my LP12. It was also the 2nd most expensive mat we sampled on the day. The runner up was a polymer Cartridge mans Music Mat (almost twice the price and quite thick - requiring a tonearm VTA adjustment). https://www.queenslandaudio.club/2016-february-brian-m I don't run a
