  1. I couldn't stay with S1 of the Sinner, I just didn't like it. I really enjoyed all 3 seasons of The Last Kingdom and highly recommend it. Enjoyed S1 and S2 of Frontier but not keen on S3 so far. Also enjoyed Narcos S1 and S2, but couldn't stay with S3 and S4.

    I think I do Dave. I'm currently in the midst of reno's so it could be difficult to locate them at the moment. 🙄

    The tedious aspect is carefully removing all the staples holding the brown cloth without damaging the softwood timber frames. Once that's done I sand the frames and refinish in black stain and then take my reattaching the new cloth to the frame. Not a fun job but very worthwhile.

    @Leinster Lad Hi Dave, I know your Gale 401C's are in near mint condition but they look so much better with the brown grille cloth replaced in black. Cheers Pete
  7. The original Gale 401 speakers are superb, but these are complete schit - IMO.
  8. Hi Clay Is there scope for the Klein II to be converted to use a 12V DC PSU? Cheers Pete

    I guess this collection is of no interest to you then? https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/waterford/stereo-systems/sansui-collection/1200112788

    3 pages and no pics of the system setup? The Rega or any turntable will not perform well on this cabinet, a bit like driving a car with the handbrake engaged. Sandboxs for turntables IME are useless, and will most likely make it sound it worse by sucking the life out of it, and will not decouple it. Time to consider getting a decent structure that will optimise the Rega or just accept the restraints you've put on it.

    I have a German 1st pressing of this and its one of the finest recordings I've heard. It's absolutely stunning with the bass being the icing on the cake. I also have it on CD and I simply can't listen to it.

    Vinyl disillusionment

    Without a doubt these are the best isolation devices for the money. They work fantastic with Rega, Thorens and Linn Sondek turntables. I use them with only 3 springs per footer and place them directly under the turntable without using a platform if possible. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/4PCS-Spring-Anti-Vibration-Amplifier-Feet-Speaker-Isolation-Stand-CD-Player-Pads/263067684288?epid=12020197257&hash=item3d400e4dc0:g:LSgAAOSwdZdboKgk:rk:13:pf:0
