  1. I’m a little concerned that Brendon’s been in storage most of the time
  2. Haven’t spun as much vinyl as I’d like, but happy so far. It replaced a PS Audio GCPH which I’d owned for about 5 years. Key difference is wider soundstage.
  3. I didn’t get to audition the OAD as there were production issues and the demo unit was unavailable. Instead I went with a Modwright PH9.0. from Krispy Audio. Still wouldn’t mind hearing one.
  4. Have one of these. Killer phono stage with numerous accolades. Increased in price last year with the poor exchange rate, so this is an absolute bargain for someone looking to step up their vinyl system. GLWS.
  5. Ouch. I can't believe the supply chain is this vulnerable. But I suppose that's a risk in a re-emerging market.
  6. I’ve used and been happy with an Ortofon 2M Bronze and Benz Micro Ace on my 9010. I’ll need to look up the headshells and get back to you. I also had the manual translated to English, which I’m happy to share with you.
  7. The Whitlams - Eternal Nightcap 2006 vinyl release. My favourite Whitlams album.
  8. Bought this Australian first pressing as a teenager. Great recording and I’d forgotten what a killer debut this was.
  9. Item: PS Audio GCPH Phono Stage Location: Blue Mountains NSW - can post Price: $700 Item Condition: Very Good (minor marks consistent with age) Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale is the excellent and versatile PS Audio GCPH phono stage. I have owned this for around six years and it has performed flawlessly. Moving it on after acquiring a new phono stage up the chain, which has demonstrated just how good these units are. The GCPH is in the 'easy to use' category of phono stages, ie. the switches are all on the outside of the box making it reasonably straight forward to make adjustments. On the front is a mono / stereo switch, phase option and a volume control. Gain and loading are accessed at the rear of the unit. Gain options include: 48/54/60/66dB and loading options are: 100 / 500 / 1k / 47k. There is also the choice between RCA or balanced outputs. A remote control (never used) is included and can be plugged directly into a power amp, and with the volume adjustment the unit can be used as a preamplifier. The GCPH has a loyal following, and they don't come up for sale too often. There are plenty of positive reviews about the unit and forum chatter. I have the original packaging which includes the manual and remote. Happy to post at buyer's cost. Photos:
  10. Unless they have a sale I've consistently found JB one of the more expensive outlets, and if this is your goto for vinyl you're going to take a decent hit on your wallet. My local record store has most releases for $35 - 45, and $50 plus for imports or double albums. Prices have also taken a hit in the last year from the weak dollar. When the exchange rate was 75c + to the USD, sites like ccmusic were great options with their regular 15 - 20% off sales and cheap postage. Then you could consistently net an LP for AU$25-30. Amazon AU can also be a good option, eg I bought Midnight Oil's 'Armistice Day' triple album for $68 from Amazon, and I think JB were looking for around $100.
  11. Item: Exposure 3010 Stereo Power Amplifier Location: Blue Mountains NSW Price: $400, no offers Item Condition: Very good (perfectly functional, minor cosmetic wear) Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Having a last crack at moving this along. I bought this amp from the forums in 2017, and it has mainly done 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
  12. Thanks Sean. Preference is for local pick up, but If there is no interest from Sydney - siders then it's all yours. I'll let you know.
  13. Item: Spin Clean Record Cleaner MKII Location: Blue Mountains, NSW Price: $75 Item Condition: Near New Reason for selling: Not used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Figured I should pull this out of the cupboard and send it on its way. I grabbed this while waiting for a vacuum RCM, it possibly cleaned 3 records all told, so is barely used. I can't find one of the cloths, but apart from that, it comes will all accessories and a near full bottle of cleaning fluid. The box is long gone, and preference is given to local pick up. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  14. “And as things fell apart Nobody paid much attention” - (Nothing But) Flowers Talking Heads’ last album ‘Naked’, Australian pressing, red vinyl.
  15. Price stickers from mid 80s albums showed I paid $10-$20 / LP. Inflation has tripled which equates roughly to the current price of albums. The Oz Peso is causing a lot of the current pricing issues, but setting aside special editions and audiophile recordings, standard pricing ain’t too bad.
  16. For any Sydneyites, Red Eye Records have all four in stock
  17. These are popular. The only album still available on the MOFI site is 'Love Over Gold'. Music Direct has 'Making Movies' in stock and the rest are marked as "awaiting repress".
  18. Did you order from Music Direct ?
  19. I've used Shipito a bunch of times and saved on postage. If the seller doesn't ship a decent volume, the freight forwarding companies can beat them. Also, I've dealt with sellers who refuse to use anything but DHL and FedEx, which can be insanely pricey, so using a freight forwarder with a range of discounted options becomes a no - brainer.
  20. I have them on order from my local record store. I was impressed with the MOFI treatment of BIA and keen to hear 45rpm versions of these. They’re expensive, but the four albums are classics IMO, and Love Over Gold is for me a desert island record. I just saw the first comments on sound quality on the Hoffman forums, which were positive. My record store are expecting stock at month’s end.
  21. At least you’re putting in the effort to actually grade your albums for sale. As other members have said, poorly graded records are rife. Now I get nervous buying VG+. Lol.
  22. Ouch. Might be worthwhile listing some of the more expensive albums from your collection so we can keep an eye out for them.
