  2. Nice pickup - these are fabulous pressings of great performances
  3. Price negotiable - note I've also advertised this on Discogs for $20 more. Further information: Regarded by many as THE quintessential conductor of Beethoven. These performances are all considered among the most significant ever recorded. Possibly the best condition copy around - certainly the best condition one ever offered for sale on Discogs (I'm offering it for sale there, and for a discount here on SNA).

  4. Not just the cast, which is amazing. Decca literally reinvented opera recording for this mammoth ground-breaking project. And Sir Georg Solti regarded it as the most important achievement of his phenomenal career.
  5. OK. Let me know if you change your mind, Ray. Good luck and cheers, Warren
  6. How much to pop the Miles Davis, Densen disc and Isotec tune up disc in the mail to Sydney? Interested in these.
  7. Further information: This Georg Solti / Vienna Philharmonic Wagner Ring performance/recording is still regarded by many as the best on record, and no subsequent reissue even gets close to equalling these spectacularly good limited edition pressings by Decca UK. Released in 1970 as a limited special edition. 22 records in 5 boxes enclosed in a uniquely designed outer slipcase. At the time it was the highest priced record set on the market and sold out soon after release! I recall "Mr Rowe Street" (Sydney's most iconic classical record store owner) pointing to the "last unsold copy in Australia" and the following week it was gone. The boxes are now 50 years old and inevitably the outer cover and box spines have sustained minor degradation over that time, but remain in beautiful condition overall. I've conservatively classed them as VG+. Everything else ranges from NM to MINT condition!!! Most of the vinyl has NEVER been played. Each box has full libretto in German and English along with detailed synopsis of each opera as well as technical recording details. The full set weighs just under 12 kg before packing it up protectively for shipping, so allow at least 13 kg shipping weight. Note that I have access to much better insured interstate shipping rates than Australia Post. For instance estimate for fast door-to-door delivery to inner Melbourne OR even inner Perth suburbs from Sydney, including insurance, would be under $30! There is a similar-condition set (maybe not quite as good) on eBay for UK£330 (about AU$600) plus shipping (+$200 to Australia) plus GST. PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE Additional information from Discogs Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen 22 LP Decca Box Set Incredible 1970 UK TWENTY TWO stereo LP boxed set of the complete edition of Richard Wagner's four part opera, 'Der Ring des Nibelungen', also known as 'The Ring Cycle' featuring the four operas 'Das Rheingold','Die Walkure', 'Siegfried' and 'Gotterdammerung'. There is also a unique three record introduction to 'The Ring' set narrated by Deryck Cooke featuring excerpts from the four operas. Each opera is in its own separate wooden ended partition with full size libretto booklets containing synopsis & full transcription for the operas. The performance is THE classic version by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Georg Solti, a powerful orchestral drama, phenomenal performance and superb sound. The whole ensemble is enclosed in a very weighty carved wooden box with gilded front panel.

  8. "That ST-2 is an omni-directional antenna. You'd do better with a Yagi-Uda beam or log-periodic dipole array. Much better directivity and front-back rejection." My problem is that I'm in a valley with no direct line of sight to the repeaters! So EVERYTHING is reflected. The effect on Sydney ABC FM is diabolical. And I don't seem to be able to pick up Wollongong FM stations. I'm thinking that omni-directional may work better in my situation. Do you still feel I should be going tight beam?
  9. Item: Magnum Dynalab ST-2 vertical FM antenna or similar for area with difficult multipath issues Price Range: Depends Item Condition: New or Used (in good working condition) Extra Info: Our massive 40' TV + FM antenna just snapped in high winds. Looking for a dedicated FM antenna with exceptional ability to minimise multipath on FM stereo. Thanks Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  10. Sold subject to payment being received. Thanks.
  11. I've had an offer and made a counteroffer. It hasn't been accepted (yet), so the sale is still tentatively open to higher offers. Of course the moment he accepts or we reach agreement, I won't accept higher offers.
  12. Further information: Price is negotiable!!! Jasmine LP 2.0 Mk2, which was the upgraded and improved model from the justly famous Jasmine 2.0 SE. Build quality and sound quality are just astonishing for the price! Note that you would need to pay about 4 times what I am asking to get the current solid state model. This unit has been further enhanced with some replacement audiophile-quality components in the power supply including teflon-coated solid core silver wiring, Philips Vishay 63V caps, etc, soldered using top quality Cardas high-silver-content solder. Modifications were made by TTW, then member of stereo.net.au forums, who is a certified Australian electrical engineer. While the performance is truly amazing for the price, you could further improve it with replacement components in the MM stage, if you wanted. I note that one of these has just sold on US Ebay for about AU$680 plus shipping. Package weight is a little below 8kg. This is not a lightweight phono preamp in any way. [Current models are the Jasmine LP 3.0 Mk1 (about AU$1600 + shipping from China + taxes), and the all-tube Jasmine LP 4.0 (about AU$3500 + shipping + taxes)] ELECTRICAL DISCLAIMER This product has not been manufactured by a qualified individual or company, therefore contains electrical circuits that do not necessarily comply with Australian Standards.

  13. I've used a number of clamps and various weights. 1. Clamps which push down on the record at say 3 points, e.g. Audio Technica, are diabolically bad! They audibly degrade the soundstage. DO NOT USE THEM. I can sell you mine if you insist. Clamps which push down hard in a circle are not much better. 2. Clamps which gently couple with the record are a lot better, but in my opinion a good (and appropriate) weight sounds a lot better again. 3. Different turntables have different weight limits that they can cope with. Suspended subchassis turntables, like the Linn LP12, CAN cope with modest weights (say 350-450g) but the suspension MUST be balanced WITH THE WEIGHT ON. Critically, if you use a weight on a suspended subchassis turntable, you must ALWAYS use it!!! Check with a service centre or manufacturer that your turntable suspension can cope with the weight. 4. Unless your non-suspended turntable uses a very low torque motor, it should be able to cope with any reasonable weight. 5. I don't use a weight on my Australian Once Analog turntable. I use TWO weights! With every single record. I use the Once Nugget 1.4kg centre weight and the TTWeights TTMega 1.2kg ring weight. That's over 2.5kg added to the momentum of the record, as well as flattening tiny degrading warps, minor warps and most major warps. This combination offers profound audible improvements on almost every record I play! And I've never heard a record sound worse with the weights than without. See previous posts about alternatives to the TTWeights products which are no longer available.
