    FSOL - Lifeforms Finally the reissue of this classic album is here. A little worried as it was released on Universal, but the SQ seems to be even better than The Orbs and Orbital's reissues. A very quiet pressing by Optimal Media. Probably just a repress. Deep & low bass, clear, spacious and dynamic sound. A long wait but it's worth the wait after all. Very happy to finally have this album on vinyl.
  2. Both Samaris sold. Gotye & Sbtrkt are still available.

    Phoebe Bridgers ‎– Stranger In The Alps Really like listening to this melancholy and beautifully sung album by a young new artist, more so each repeated listening. Definitely one of the best from 2017 for me. Unfortunately, she is on Dead Oceans. I have stopped buying Dead Oceans' vinyl releases due to their subpar sq. Does anyone here own the black vinyl release of this album? Could you please comment on the sq?

    Loving the sound quality of these new reissues of Saint Etienne's Tiger Bay and So Tough, really beautiful bass! If you like S.E., the 20th Anniversary reissue of Foxbase Alpha from 2016 on Heavenly is just as excellent sounding.
  7. Item: Ryan Adams Ashes & Fire EU Pressing Location: Redfern Price: $50 Item Condition: Near mint/as new Reason for selling: Double Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer Only Extra Info: A beautiful sounding album, a must for his fans. According to an article I read, Ryan Adams said: "I played acoustic on all of them and sang and played live to tape. We recorded the album ALL 100 percent ANALOG (2″ tape mixed to 1/4″). A computer didn’t touch this album. It has very few overdubs..." I first bought the US pressing and thought its sound was fine but slightly muddy. Then I heard someone commented the EU MPO pressing being sonically superior. Just at the end of last year, I started to search for it but this first UK/EU MPO pressing has proven quite hard to get. Most of the places I have looked sell the US pressing. I purchased one from Amazon UK (then £28.90) which was listed limited edition, due to the high price I expected the UK/EU deluxe box but what I received was the exact US single LP I already have. So I returned it and get a refund. I then purchased a copy from Amazon Germany. The same thing happened and again, I returned it! I then bought it from a seller on Discogs at a higher price. At least now I could get the seller to send me a picture and make sure that it is, in fact, a Made in the EU, MPO pressing (see picture). I bought two copies just in case I got a noisy one, but they both played very quietly with only a few very minor surface noise. Yes, the sonic is far superior to the US pressing and the effort was worth it. *Selling at the price I have paid $50. *Will post at buyers expense or pick up. Pictures:

    Gang of Youths - Go Father In Lightness This 2xLP black vinyl sound excellent. No surprises as it's another great cut by Daniel Kruger at SST and pressed by Pallas. After a few spins, it has really grown on me as I initially refuse to believe that it could be better than The Positions, their first album. However, I now enjoy them both just as much... After the horrid of the original 2xLP red vinyl, it was a real gamble to get this 2xLP black vinyl. I am glad that I bet. This Optimal Media pressing is just as excellent. I can't really say which sounds better as some tracks on each album sound better than the other. P.S.: Oops I spoke too soon, just noticed some serious sibilance on some tracks on The Positions. It's still an enjoyable SQ... but what a shame...
  12. I have Eames replica from Matt Blatt which I paid $1200, didn’t find it comfortable, my neck is especially uncomfortable after 10-15 minutes. I’m only 5’ 8”. That prompted me to get the real thing when I need an office chair. So I paid $1400 for a Herman Miller Aeron chair from The Living Edge. It was great when I tried it in the shop. Back home sitting in it for long hours at the desk is a different thing. I didn’t find it particularly comfortable. I thought of selling it at one point but somehow 10 years on I’m still stuck with it. Probably doesn’t worth much now that it’s old. My friend has two Poltrona Frau Vanity Fair armchairs in his apartment. They are the most comfortable chair I have been in. We would sit in one each and chat for hours when I visit. I did not like its shape at first. But the orangy brown leather looks so good and they look perfectly matched in my friend’s apartment with his mix of old and new furnitures! I now really like it’s simple design. If I were going to get a listening chair, this is what I’m going to get, only if I can afford it [emoji4] And of course l, it comes with a pouf too...
