  1. For moving flip them around to sit flat in the box- that’s how dealers stack them for transport to markets
  2. I was going to ask about packing lps for a move, but just found a box from Naked Wines - it is really solid cardboard and holds a lot of records ( maybe 40) in an excellent fit- not too heat either. Now to find some more! Other suggestions ? I hate starting a new stream but. I tried various searches on this unsuccessfully
  3. I was given an FR mk3 and had it retipped by Garrot - a great cartridge worth more than the deck, I know ( mine is the Kp 990) will get it set up a bit better by A friend if he can ( he has written extensively on the business at the analogue department. i have an fr7 too but it’s too heavy- and am thinking of adding weight ( blutack? ) to the counterweight. then I can have a shoot out with the technics epa on a big Jvc direct drive
  4. A little off topic, but pertinent here I think: I bought an HDCD disc (Neil Young's Mirrorball) that was described as "good" and lightly scratched and played fine. In fact it was heavily scratched., and whilst if plays fine now, I am dubious about how long that will last. (any views on that?) I like having some hi res discs to pop on without having to start the server etc I have lodged a complaint, and the seller is behaving like a dick. He told me to look up ebay's rating system for CDs which I did and this disc is definitely in the lowest group, but the rating system is certainly curious. Of the four categories good is the second last, or third, definitely below the median rating, which is somewhat counterintuitive- I would think the "Good " description sounds more like "fair", for those of us who look at condition https://www.ebay.com/pages/help/sell/contextual/condition_7.html

  6. It’s at PortStephens- a great place to visit, a regular place for holidays when our kids were growing up- despite the 1000k return trip
  7. Yes- I know his his ex, (or one of them), Leslie, who told me a few stories about him, like the time Tognetti walked into the shop (they had a big poster of him at the time.) I used to go in there a bit as my sis had a shop nearby. She said she saw the other Julian in the city the other day.
  8. Sydney members might remember that these were sold at Neutral Bay hifi by the 2 Julians ( who previously worked in Duratone in Canberra)
  9. Sure enough, I contacted him and after 36 hours he admitted he wanted $650
  10. I really hate that and have attempted to report people selling things for $1 then they actually want $12000 or so (in the case of cars)
