  1. Harry’s Reasons - V. Spy V. Spy 1987 Gatefold Spoils from today’s crate digging. Pleased to round out my Spy’s collection with this classic. Great sonics, and appears I was lucky and scored a NM copy.
  2. I can’t believe MOFI waited so long to remaster this classic 🤣🤣🤣
  3. Happy 40th to this spectacular debut album and brooding masterpiece.
  4. It's a great album, and Jules Holland's piano solo on Uncertain Smile is sublime.
  5. Axis: Bold As Love. UHQR Not bought today, but arrived today. Great packaging. Has a lush, magnificent soundstage. Analogue Productions nailed it.
  6. I read the books a long time ago, and never realised the original series existed !
  7. A couple of interested parties, so most likely sold.
  8. Item: Okki Nokki MKI MKII RCM (White) Location: Blue Mountains, Sydney Price: $520 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: EDIT: This is a MKII and not a MK1, as I first thought. This means it is manufactured in China (not Germany) and has a plastic instead of metal wand. Apologies for any confusion caused ! For sale is a MK II Okki Nokki record cleaner, purchased in 2014 from Krispy Audio. Included in the sale are wands for 12” and 7” records, a clamp, and dust cover. The cover and 7” wand are additional purchases and retail for $115 and $75 respectively, and the 7" wand is unused. The dust cover is a must IMO, as keeping dust from a RCM is pretty important ! The unit has seen mild to moderate use, and there are months where it’s barely used. For anyone not familiar with the Okki Nokki, it is a wet - vacuum cleaning system, and works by first agitating debris from the record as it rotates via a brush placed along the grooves. After a few rotations (the unit has forward and reverse) the wand vacuums the liquid away, leaving you with a clean and hopefully crackle and pop - free record. It can’t perform miracles and fix a record retrieved from a dumpster, but for gunk, mould, fingerprints etc... it does a good job. And with the debris and detritus new records come with, it’s a good idea to clean everything, not just 2nd hand purchases. Your needle will thank you. A few months after I received the unit, it had an issue with the vacuum cleaner which was easily fixed by a fuse replacement and was a common problem with this model. It has been trouble - free ever since. The original brush is long gone, so you’ll need to grab something suitable. There are plenty of options, and of course you’ll need to arm yourself with a record cleaning concoction. I’ll also throw in a back - up set of spare velvet strips, which attach to the 12” wand and should be changed about every 50 records. Shipping is possible as I have the box for the unit, however I don’t have one for the dust cover and so preference is given to local pick-up.

  9. I’ve a few records received in the mail which have cover damage. Can only assume this is due to the accelerating vinyl puncturing the cardboard as it’s launched as a frisbee by the courier. This is a difficult one from the seller’s POV as they need to open mint records to prevent this. Almost every seller I’ve encountered separate the vinyl and cover for 2nd hand records though.
  10. Due to the seller's poor packing, I once received a box set which was torn and battered. I requested another box set, correctly packed, and asked them to pay the return postage for the damaged box set. Instead, they offered a few dollars of credit (I think it represented about 5% of the value of the box set). I declined, and they refunded the sale in full and didn't ask for the goods to be returned. Moral of the story, stick to your guns, as you have the right to expect the product and condition you paid for.
  11. Wow. Have the C2s and can only imagine how these must sound. Great price as well. GLWTS
  12. Any half decent system reveals vinyl's imperfections, and the need for an RCM or effective cleaning regime. I used a cloth to wipe down records played on my parents' system and that was the end of it. We did suffer regular crackles and pops, and my parents' records, which I have and play on occasion are worse for wear, and they were treated relatively well. I couldn't get by without an RCM, and new records regularly look like they've been plucked from a dumpster - there's no way they're going anywhere near my stylus without a clean. So bottom line, you're right; get an RCM !
  13. While I think the season was rushed in parts, I thoroughly enjoyed the last episode and some of the ironies. I read the books as they came out, and realised I've waited 23 years for an ending. Still like to see George have a crack at completing the books, but that's unlikely. D&D did an incredible job at putting what seemed like an unfilmable story on the screen. Technically, it has to be the greatest accomplishment ever for the medium.
  14. Also using mine with Dynaudio C2s. Stunning results. GLWTS
