  1. Hi Rob great write up for the wee Neats. They remind me of scaled down Shiannans. Seeing as you liked the ELS so much did you not think of full-range panels? I was thinking of getting a pair of your panels but I moved my listening chair 2 feet back and my speakers have now taken on a new lease of life! Rgeards Mike

  6. "I'm curious as to how you bought smokes off a vending machine though as I thought you need a TASPO card for that (which is only available to japanese residents). " This was about 20 years ago
  7. "but this was quickly compensated for by chain smoking a pack of Peace cigarettes" I was on a flight from Sydney to London via Osaka on Japan Airlines with an overnite stop at a hotel across the road from the airport. After checking in I decided to buy some some smokes which were only available from vending machines back at the airport. I chose Peace and lite one up on my way back to the hotel - I was high by the time I returned. Was it the same for you? Good review of the bars by the way. Mike
  8. Pali Gap - the late great Jimi Hendrix Such a sublime track with so many different tones to his guitar
  9. I have always been into Jimi ever since he blew my mind in late 1966 with Hey Joe. I bought Are You Experienced the day it was released, in mono mind you, and after that most guitarists were also rans. I missed an opportunity to see him live at the Isle of Wight festival in 1970. I can still remember the infamous day he was taken from us - I was returning home from work and nearly fell down the escalator on the London Underground when I saw the newspaper headlines. His music was a big part of my life at the time. Last month my wife and I went on holiday to the good ol' USA and we went to Jimi's hometown of Seattle. Early one morning I used Seattle's fine public transport system to go on a pilgramage and see his final resting place. Its a very beautiful place and I sat there, smoked a joint (weed is legal in Washington state) , listened to my favourite track - Pali Gap from the Rainbow Bridge soundtrack (a touch of what might have been) and said thank you. I still miss him so much. I also visited the Museum of Pop Culture where I had an emotional moment looking at the Stratocaster he used to such effect at Woodstock. I was a bit disappointed they did not have a T Shirt I wanted in my size. On our way home to Australia we had a few days stopover in Hawai'i where I managed to score a beautiful Hawai'ian shirt in purple featuring the great man. I was hoping to travel the Pali highway to visit the gap lookout. This was not to be as there had been a big landslide earlier in the year and the lookout was closed. Shame.
  10. Item: Advance Acoustic X-i 75 Integrated Amplifier Location: Brisbane Price: $350 Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: Liked it so much bought its bigger brother Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a fabulous piece of kit with all the fruit - tone & balance controls, built in DAC & Phono Stage all controlled by remote control. It sounds so good I ended up buying its bigger brother the X - i 125. It comes with the remote control, instruction manual & power cord. I have the original box so can be shipped at buyers expense. If you are local I will only be too happy to demonstrate. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  11. My poor old Audio Innovations S500 valve amp developed a nasty hum recently. After ringing around a couple of repair shops around Brisbane who did not want to know I came across Hifi Repair Services on the Gold Coast. I spoke with Andy and he agreed to have a look at it for me. He did a fabulous job and re-placed a heap of blown caps , fixed up some dubious previous repair work and everything was hunky dory. His service was exceptional and he even supplied before and after photo's. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Mike
