  5. Nice. The MOFI Pixies vinyl does sound excellent, and their version of Doolittle has shot up in value. GLWTS
  6. As an audience recording it sounds a lot better than it should. Michael Stipes’ vocals are prominent and the audience chatter is barely audible through most of it. The performance is acoustic, and the instruments are brought forward at different stages. If you’re looking for an audiophile experience this isn’t it, but it’s a great time capsule for REM, and I enjoyed listening to it.
  7. PM sent with intent to buy a few items

  9. My Frank Black collection is now a little more complete, thanks to a reasonably priced Discogs seller
  10. Nothing is more normal than scouring equipment specs and reviews in obscure sites and comparing them with descriptions from numerous forums and refreshing classified listings umpteen times a day while breaking it all up by examining vinyl pressings and matrix numbers and markings and country of origin and vinyl weight with the aim of making micro gains on a system that is financially equivalent to a new car or house extension. Yes, this is all completely normal.
  11. I’ve got the Sound City doco and watched it a few times. I think the interviews and details of bands and their recordings (particularly the iconic albums) at Sound City are excellent. It’s a great historical piece and portrays well the twilight of analog recording as protools became ubiquitous. The second half where Grohl does the improvised album with his heroes is disposable I suppose. But the doco is worth the price of entry for the first part.
  12. Can confirm. I bought the MF amp from LWA for the $995 offer.
  13. I think you win 🤣 ”You got faulty speakers, the sound ain’t coming from where it should be ! And you paid a fortune !”
  14. Lol. Dave Grohl champions analog sound, bought the Sound City mastering desk - which is an engineering feat and makes documentaries as an ode to great recordings. Yet, some of the worst pressings in my collection are Foo Fighters. I actually use one of their albums to demo the difference between good and crap pressings.
  15. @Whites A friend who is very particular about where people rest their drinks at her house (and fair enough), placed her wine glass on one of my speakers. She moved it, but didn’t understand what the issue was. So so I feel your pain. lol.
  16. I listened to a Henry Rollins interview where he talked about his hifi system which includes Wilson Alexandrias. His car was a Mazda 626. Man has his priorities straight !
  17. Cool. Probably the bulk of visitors are fine to listen and appreciate the music. But lately I’ve had a spate of weird reactions and comments. Maybe I need to serve more alcohol 😁
  18. It was the son of visiting friends. His parents are into music and he’s heard my system a few times. Lost cause I reckon !
  19. While we’re immersed in the latest system tweek, it can be easy to forget that the rest of society don’t know / care about our hifi systems. Particular since the advent of MP3s, component systems are exotic curiosities. This all makes for interesting visitor comments. Some of my recent experiences: When spinning a record for guests, one of them piped up “Oh, I know that’s a turntable, but you’re actually going to play a record on it ? I assumed it was for decoration.” One friend was intrigued by my floor standing speakers. “So why the large cabinets. Is there a point ? These take up so much space, have you thought of using a bluetooth speaker instead ? I'm happy with mine and I think you’d prefer that.” And lastly, from a teenager. “Why do you have a whole system just for music ? What’s the point in sitting down just to listen to music ? Music is something you have in the background like when you’re driving.” Heathens.
  20. Spoke to the Oz distributor a couple weeks ago to find an authorised Dyn repairer, and they talked about the new Confidence range. I was told the Confidence 30s would come in around $33k retail. So quite a jump.
  21. I wasn’t prepared to part with a kidney, so it’s great to finally own this on vinyl courtesy of RSD. Sonics are also excellent
  22. This morning I arrived at my local store after 9 and was the 110th customer. Most of what I was after was still available. The surprise of the day - soundtracks were popular... still copies of rarities I thought would be snapped up, but the soundtracks were decimated. Also surprised to pick up the Chuck Mosley 7”, of which only 1000 were pressed. Now to spin them...
