  1. RIP Malcolm young

    Sad day. Legend. Loved. RIP.
  2. GTG 22nd Oct 2017. Richmond hifi society.

    We played mainly vinyl. It rocked . I would also like to thank @generichs for a great afternoon and I certainly enjoyed getting to know the stereonetters better. After my horns not surprisingly I found some limitations in macro dynamics. But I wasn't prepared for the blow away inner detail of the sound. F* it was good! I missed it as soon as I got home. Koetsu Onyx / Aura / parasound phono / AVM massive mono blocks and Maggies the height of some houses will do that to ya. It was like a bath. You were covered in the music. VV good. -pauly-

  4. FS: Music Labs DP102 DAC

    Wow, sorry I missed this thread. I would have loved to buy it. I have a music labs dp101 dac of John's. Have wanted a 102 for a while. To the guy who bought it: if you get sick of it I'll buy it off you . I used to work with John De Sensi actually at the BoM. Back in the musiclabs days of the early 90's. I'd like also to get in contact with him again. But I see no contact info on his new website. Hopefully he'll turn up at the HiFi Show coming up. His 101 DAC is a very interesting DAC. I am a vinyl nut so hardly play digital but his DAC is just soo soo unoffensive and quiet. Like the digital artifacts are just wiped away. Which is exactly how that DAC was described as sounding by George Secher and John back in '92 when they were selling them. The most fatigue free digital listening I have. Although I admit I have not shelled many $ on modern digital offerings due to my vinyl addiction. Remarkable. cheers -pauly-
  5. Be all right with my Koetsu Black though, loves 100 ohm. ( and other Koetsu's )
  6. Show us your Turntables!!!

    Man I've got about a dozen turntables. I wish I had the space to run say 5 ? Doesn't exist I'm afraid... lol
  7. Show us your Turntables!!!

    Just upgraded to vinyl nirvana spring kit & george merrill mat and poly pulley.
  8. I love this comment. It's an interesting thing about our hobby that even if we are happy with our sound , if we hear better at some GTG we will be pained until we figure out how to achieve it in our own system. I don't see it as jealousy. I see it as an admiral homage and pursuit of the goal we all share. The goal of good sound. And just how good and moving well produced music can be. -pauly-
  9. what makes you think the stylus is not genuine? I assume all my f8's had original styli. is it that you can tell by the pic that that is non genuine? chs, p.
  10. 9 years ago I heard it a few times. Was always impressed.
  11. And they are ALL setup, aligned ? Good work Mark!
  12. I ran a K3 from 87 till 2010 on my thorens. Great cart. I have a P77 but have never got great things out of it. Don't know why. My mc's took over then. Only run them since. Can't go back. P.
  13. Hi Mark, the tip of the stylus undergoes some considerable heat in it's journey. there can be muck, esp on older records I'm told, that will melt onto it. if you forget to wipe it one night before bed it will stick hard. some alcohol will remove it but don't drown it as the alcohol can damage the suspension in the cart. Saw a stanton , new, in op shop the other day! was going to buy it but I think it was a lesser model than the good ones. -pauly-
  14. My love affair with 80's AR's has continued. I was very impressed with an EB101 AR TT. Transparent, and very musically expressive. But the English EB101 is the cheapest possible AR. I was very keen to try an "AR The Turntable". ( A real one, ) Now you can add a very natural sound and body to instruments which sound more like they have realistic tone, to that list above. I recently set this up over a few days including conversion to Aussie power 240v. The Koetsu absolutely loves it. I've never heard the Black quite like it . Here is some TT porn ... -pauly-
