  1. Then there are all the great Aussies who have gone OS like Max Townshend. And the Aussie contributors like Thiel and Small ( at ANU).

    Speakers, $13k budget

    My 2 cents worth Electrostatics are brilliant when done well... very directional though how much do you have to soend toget reallygood ones? Quad 63/57, up to $2.5k Martin logan go much higher in cost If i wasnt into stats and had the room i’d get old old Tannoy 15” monitor golds The smaller modern studio speakers can be really good and under $3k but holy toledo they are but ugly If i wasnt

    I was about 16, it was about 1966 This was available at the local record store and a budget release Every track is fantastic Hearing Clapton do crossroads before Cream and Al Kooper before Highway 61 ( I think)

    What to do with old CDs?

    It only costs $15 to send 3k of cds ( about 24 in their jewel cases- allow 200gm or so for packing) in a prepaid bag, so you could sell them hete in lots- eg 24 punk cds for $100 plus postage maybe
