  2. After advice on setting up the azimuth on a Kuzma Stogi 12inch VTA tonearm. I've tried to do it by eye, but my eyesight isn't the best at 60 years of age (even with glasses).

    Hello from Sunshine coast

    Welcome aboard. The November Queensland Audio Club meeting is being held on the Sunshine Coast (see club notice). PM me if you are interested in attending.
  4. The next GTG will be at Steven K’s on Saturday 17th November at Cooroibah (Sunshine Coast). Details are … Host: Steven K Date/time: Saturday 17th November: 11:00 am - late Food: We will provide a BBQ lunch at Steven’s meeting. Usual club courtesy BYO soft drinks, wine etc. and nibbles welcome. Sadly for those who expect that kind of thing there is no turntable (shock, horror) and also no CD player. Music on a USB drive can be loaded into the system but Steven imagines he can find almost anything you might want to play, or something similar. Equipment: Steven’s equipment list below System One All Digital, mostly DIY, 5-way system using the Roon software and DEQX Dacs and amplifiers Some major changes since you heard this last year. The system has improved but IMHO still needs some tweaking. Come along and tell me what you think…. Source Roon Server Core [In Server cabinet in garage] Intel Nuc Server running Roon [Rock] operating system Music is stored on HDD in Server Core Music is also streamed from the Internet to Roon from Tidal Roon Control [In Server cabinet in garage] Intel Nuc Running Win 10 and Roon Control. Display on 75” TV in Listening room. Wireless mouse and keyboard. NB. Control is also available from any other device connected to the home network DAC [In Server cabinet in garage] Master is a DEQX HDP 5.0. Deals with top 3 drivers and system volume. Slave is a DEQX HDP 4.0 Core. Deals with bottom two drivers. These provide 5-way Correction, Equalisation, and Crossover. Speakers. DIY 5 way. They are called ‘The Darkside’. Cables. Almost all made by Steven. SystemTwo. Speakers are Jiri’s yellow box MTM’s and Audio Elegance 18” woofers. An old laptop, an old TV, an ALLO Digione ethernet to SPDIF converter, an old DEQX and six Aussie Amps. This is a surprisingly nice system…. Usual club courtesy BYO soft drinks, wine etc. and nibbles (especially cheesecake) welcome.

    Record surface issue.

    Try using a hand held steam cleaner. They are not very expensive. https://www.kmart.com.au/product/hand-held-steam-cleaner/824515 https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=youtube+steam+clean+vinyl+records&view=detail&mid=E54193AD76641D8221E1E54193AD76641D8221E1&FORM=VIRE

  7. Pass Labs X250.5. I've driven loads of .5ohm without a fuss. Probably just a little more than your budget, but not by a huge amount.

    Pre-amp for Parasound 2250?

    A Parasound P3 would be a perfect match and in your price range.

    Preamp benefits

    I agree with Snoopy. Try it direct from your Dac first. Then see if you can borrow a preamp or two and see if you like what you hear. I used to use my Audiolab DAC direct in my study system (I have 6 systems in my house & workshop), but now run a Auralic Taurus preamp in that sytem. I prefer the sound through the pre, but in the end it is up to one's individual taste.
