  1. Based on other crappy pressings I’ve bought, I’m suspecting employee 1600 is moonlighting at a few record companies !
  2. MOFI promptly responded and agreed to send replacement sleeves and vinyl at no charge. This is the result I was looking for, and hopefully the replacements are in decent shape.
  3. Cool that your copy is in good nick. I spun it today and it’s a great recording.
  4. Yep, the usual MOFI sleeves. The boxes are packed well and sealed, but the QC clearly isn’t up to scratch. Apparently they’re pressed at RTI.
  5. Number is 1347. I also noticed mine shipped a good week later than US residents’ copies.
  6. I’ve missed out on a couple of MOFI titles when ordering locally. Given the run for these that probably wasn’t an issue, however I was also hoping to get a low number copy. Not that that happened either. Lol.
  7. Sent them a blunt email with photos and requested a replacement. See what happens.
  8. Ordered directly from MOFI.
  9. Today I received my MOFI one step of ‘Blood on the Tracks’. The covers are scufffed and the vinyl looks like something from a $2 dollar bin. With shipping, this is around a AU$250 purchase. My RCM sorted the smudges and detritus but damage to the vinyl remains, and it’s audible. While the pressing is outstanding, it doesn’t make up for the appalling quality control. And this isn’t my first rodeo with faulty MOFI products. Not happy Jan !
  10. Placed an order for three LPs yesterday, and shipping was quoted at US$71. So their postage fees have definitely increased. I’ll now look at a freight forwarder.
  11. I see in one of your photos (I assume it's stock given the watermark), it identifies the model on the back plate of the PSU. So maybe check there. Cheers.
  12. Lovely phono stage. Is this the MKII edition of The Groove ?
  13. Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers - Live Anthology. Seven discs of career - spanning live recordings. Released in 2009, was OOP and repressed last year.
  14. I've heard good things about the Groovewasher system but never tried it
  15. I've found their packing and service consistent. However, if the order is fulfilled by a third party Amazon seller then it's a dice roll.
  16. @candyflip - I inadvertantly advertised in this forum, would you mind moving it to the audio classifieds ? Thanks.
  17. Item: Exposure 3010 Stereo Power Amplifier Location: Blue Mountains, NSW Price: $680 $500 Item Condition: Very Good - functions perfectly / minor cosmetic wear Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Having one last crack at moving this on. I think this is a great amp for the asking price. I bought this power amplifier from the forums in 2017. Its main use is HT duties, as well as spinning 10 hours or so of vinyl each week. The amp has performed flawlessly and presents as warm and emotive, ie. the Exposure house sound. The amp is rated at 100w / channel into 8 Ohms, and has the capability to run as a mono amp, as well as the option to biwire. Note: the amp only takes banana plugs. Cosmetically, there are minor blemishes and some light scratches on the top of the unit. I have the original box, and happy to post. https://www.exposurehifi.com/images/quickstart/3010_Power_Amplifier_QS_Manual_web.pdf Specs: Power Output (Stereo): 100 Watts per channel at 1KHz into 8 Ohms Power output (bridged mono): 110 Watts at 1KHz into 8 Ohms Input Impedance: 18K ohms Frequency Response: 20Hz - 20 KHz ±0.5dB Total Harmonic Distortion: <0.015% at rated output ref 1 KHz Signal to noise: >100 dB ref rated output Channel Separation: >60dB, 20Hz - 20KHz Mains Supply: 110/120V or 220/240V, 50/60Hz (factory set) Power Consumption: <350VA, 8 ohm load both channels driven Dimensions (H x W x D): 115mmx440mmx300mm Net Weight (unpacked): 11kg Gross Weight (packed): 13kg Photos:
  18. That's wild. They shipped mine for $13.00 I've placed one other order with them for two LPs and shipping was $23.00.
  19. Good luck with the hunt ! Does your pre amp have a phono stage ? Here’s a turntable / tonearm / cart, that would be a good combo for dipping your toe in the water, and leaves you cash for LPs:
  20. I’m on the hunt for a phono stage upgrade and this could fit the bill. I contacted OAD, and via Warwick from Sonic Purity, a unit will be shortly on its way to Audio Solutions in Mascot. Greg is the contact at Audio Solutions for any Sydneysiders wanting a demo. Have to say, the customer service experience was very prompt from all parties.
  21. This morning kicks off with King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard’s latest offering - ‘Fishing for Fishies’ And it’s a glorious experimental psych - pop / blues joy ride
  22. 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.
  23. I can’t believe MOFI waited so long to remaster this classic 🤣🤣🤣
  24. Happy 40th to this spectacular debut album and brooding masterpiece.
