  1. "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?
  2. 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).
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  9. That's interesting. It's one mat I've never listened to. My favourite mat (of those I've owned or heard) remains the Herbie's Way Excellent 2 mat, or the Herbie's mat with the Extreme Phono Speed carbon fibre mat on top. Among the mats I've tried have been: the Millenium Mat (carbon fibre) on other mats or alone the Extreme Phono None-Felt mat (with and without the Extreme Phono Speed mat) the Origin Live mat the Boston graphite mat the Spectra Mat All mats have a sonic signature. The Spectra, Millenium and Boston had very pronounced signatures which were either immediately or eventually disturbing. The Origin Live mat is relatively benign but also very slightly dull. The Extreme Phono None-Felt plus Speed mat combo came pretty close to a neutral presentation with the Speed mat allowing a little hint of the edginess inherent in the music. The Herbie's provides a depth and level of realism in the presentation that the others don't. It remains my go-to mat after several years. Adding the Extreme Phono Speed mat does offer a little extra liveness to some slightly too laid-back recordings or pressings.
