  1. The story on AVS is that the LS sold badly. Not the numbers Epson was expecting. This was already their second gen reflective LCD design. And there are serious doubts Epson will continue to invest R&D money on it. They may eventually get a 4K LCD and put a laser on it but I doubt the LS in its current tech will get a 4K panel.
  2. Arcam has a new SACD CD player for $1500 that used the ESS 9038 Chipset like the Oppo 205. Does TIDAL streaming too but not Roon.
  3. I ordered two. And the 2 boxes came in a bigger box. With some packing material inside. Looked fine.
  4. I almost forgot it was coming today but got an email alert that it was delivered. Popped the door open and there it was! Quickly unwrapped it and put it on Have to say it is clearly remastered. But it didn’t sound as bad as the one on TIDAL. It is emphasized or boosted - the Simply Vinyl less err vivid but feels more correct. It’s like someone boosted some bands on the EQ on the remaster. But still enjoyable. Hotel California has always been criticized as being remixed in the studio and not a true live recording so I doubt either version is a true representation of being there. Alas, I’ve found Tequila Sunrise still to exhibit more sibilance than any of the other tracks. Same as on Simply Vinyl. Can’t explain it. I found at least one other poster who’s commented on this.
  5. Just spent the morning re-listening to my Simply Vinyl version to get myself reacclimatized. Still waiting. Pants on the sofa ready to put them on when the doorbell goes. Hope it isn’t Jehovah’s Witnesses.
  6. Glad this helped the guys hunting for a copy of this. My two copies have been on board for delivery since 8pm last night according to Amazon Prime. I’m still at home expecting a knock on the door. Which reminds me. Better put on some pants [emoji23]
  7. Amazon says mine is coming on Monday - which is my day off so fingers crossed.
  8. So TIDAL offers up 2 versions of this album - the original and the 2018 Remaster. OMG the remaster is terrible.
  9. I have that. I also have the SHM XRCD2 version which is better https://www.yesasia.com/us/hell-freezes-over-xrcd-shmcd/1024962278-0-0-0-en/info.html But the thread is for the LP version
  10. Simply Vinyl was a reissue. Not a bootleg. Unless there’s a bootleg of the SV pressing?
  11. https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B07MCXWP1M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Reissued for 2019 - hurry. Free shipping with Amazon Prime
  12. Sorry for the thread necromancy.. but https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B07MCXWP1M/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 The original Geffen repressing is out again. Even though I got the Simply Vinyl repress, I am getting this one (two actually) and shipping is free if you are a Prime member - I just got a Prime subscription for streaming Grand Tour so WOOT!!! Run.. don't walk!! I tried seeing if JB would carry this but nada. On a hunch I started looking for more OOP titles - and I found King Curtis Soul Meeting and Oscar Peterson Trio - but these seem to be European bootlegs
  13. That’s not the only thing. The lens still matters. I have a Vivitek and it is nowhere as sharp as the BenQ W1700 and I reckon Benq’s LK990/970 has as good a lens if not better (bearing in mind the lens of the W1700 is considerably smaller hence cheaper without needing lens shift)
  14. Even without coding, holding the lock button will close the mirrors.
