    Thorens TD-147 Plinth Refurb

    I’ll be interested to see how it turns out. I have a 147 Jubilee edition which possibly needs a new plinth.
  2. The PX range retailed for about $200 more than the CDP range in Oz. A couple google reviews between the 2 https://www.pianostreet.com/smf/index.php?topic=56115.0 https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.reddit.com/r/piano/comments/4ggxba/casio_cdp_series_vs_px_series/
  3. Item: Casio Privia PX 130 Digital Piano, stand, seat and pedal etc Location: Melbourne Price: $400 obo. New all up it was around $1000 Item Condition: 8.5/10, not used for 3-4yrs Reason for selling: NLR, Daughter forgot everything she was taught Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: No idea on pricing. Checked Gumtree and they range from $550-1000 The Casio Privia PX 130 requires little or no maintenance, always plays in tune, and provides many more features than a traditional piano. Recommended to us by the Piano school my daughter attended as it was the same as they used. It all folds flat to fit under beds or in wardrobes etc. A step up from the CDP range. 88 is the same number of keys as on a traditional piano, and the PX 130 gives you the same feel of a real piano because each key weighs the same as on an acoustic piano. As you go lower you will notice the keys feel heavier and as you go higher on the keyboard the keys will feel lighter. The PX 130 has a sustain pedal and when pressed all notes played will continue to sound until released. Headset Jack for silent practice You can split the keyboard and play different sounds. Your teacher can play on one half of the piano, while you learn along side them on the other half. Pictures:

    Gieseler DAC Reviews & Impressions

    I had a PDXL2 then Klein 1 then the SE for a couple years. The SE was the best. I now have a Gross which is better (Femto Upgrade next) I sold the SE to my friend with the CXN after he tried it, liked it didn’t want to give it back....... I then bought the Gross......wouldn’t of sold the SE otherwise.

    Gieseler DAC Reviews & Impressions

    The CXN is quite slick to use but by the time you log into Spotify connect or search through the music on the NAS it’s almost as easy to use a PC/Mac from your phone. I’ve not used a sms200. The Klein SE is far superior in any case, it’s using the coax input. Clay says it sounds best with USB.

    Gieseler DAC Reviews & Impressions

    I have a friend with a CXNV2 and a Klein SE. The CXN can either digital output to the Klein or via its own dac. He streams Spotify and accesses a NAS with the CXN. Theres no comparison between the Klein SE and CXN sound wise. The Klein SE is superb.

    Recording Microgroove records

    Thanks, they have a mono cartridge for it as well as the AT MM. The project is for the family of William Flynn. Th MM cartridge only has 2pins out of the 4 connected. No earth, It’s all a bit diy, would be nice to hire or buy something more suitable. Is there any where in Oz that could offer such a thing?

    SOLD: FS : matched RCA 6SL7-GT Tubes

    I’ll take them
  11. Hi, i would like some pointers/help with recording some 200 microgroove records for a friend. They’re about 450mm or 18inch in diameter and don’t fit on a normal TT. Most are Radio 3DB recordings. My friend has a leak TT that plays the records, he has adapted a MM cartridge to do it. I have a PS Audio Nuwave Phone and I need around 69db boost to attain normal volume, problem is hum and TT noise is also boosted. These records are heading to the national library. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, George

    DIY Turntable and phono rack

    I did think about that. I added the silicone feet to help isolate the rack from the cabinet as my floors are a little bouncy and the turntable skips if you walk too hard next to it.

    So true...... kids are older now. The Topaz needs to be released from its fan cooled prison 😆
