  1. Currently Spinning

    Some Chris Isaak tonight Sounding rather good on vinyl
  2. Long speaker cables 10 meter

    johnmath made up a pair of 9m runs of Eurocable 04N40 for my system, and I've been very happy with it. It's flexible and easy to work with. Performance wise, it seems to do the job in a fairly decent system. The measurements for the set he did for me
  3. Tracks with KILLER BASS. What shakes your system?

    Bush - Letting The Cables Sleep ( Nightmares on Wax Remix)

    Hi @DRC I think this is an exercise in just how good Syrah can be... The Coates Shin Zen Bi Syrah is one of the most perfectly balanced, beautiful wines I've ever drunk. Pretty close to perfect. Cheers Suresh
  5. Brinkman 10.5 tonearm - WOW

    HI Scuzzi Having both of the tonearms on my Spyder ( the Brinkmann and the Jelco), I know what you mean by the difference between the two. The Jelco is a very good arm, and represents great value for money, but the Brinkmann is just in a different class ( as it should be , given the difference in price!). I'm glad you're enjoying it. I just worry what Keith will suggest I try next ( my wife refers to him as my "dealer") Cheers Suresh
  6. Another one from Adelaide

    Welcome Some very nice toys to play with - Micro Seiki and Meridian..
  7. Brinkman 10.5 tonearm - WOW

    It certainly is a beautiful tonearm. Welcome to the club!

    Darth, I think you need an intervention.....

    2 Nice Barossa Reds to ward off the winter chill. Rockford needs no introduction. Izway has been one of my favourite new wineries of the last few years.
  10. HiFi Rack shortage

    Hi Nat Anthony, @Grizzly , here on SNA , also makes up equipment racks at quite reasonable prices. May be worth getting in touch with him? Cheers
  11. Rack for turntable and stereo components...

    I'd add my support for SGR Racks. They've worked superbly in my system/room. A great local product and company, and they can customise the rack to your needs.
  12. I'm not a facebook or twitter person either! I dont have accounts on either, I check the C&P facebook page or twitter page like I check stereonet. They're at the music palooza record fair at bowden tomorrow, and then the Adelaide Beer and BBQ festival at the Wayville Showgrounds next weekend
  13. Of late, I've been getting a lot of new vinyl from Crackle and Pop. ( https://twitter.com/cpradelaide) Mark, the guy who runs it, is a genuinely nice bloke who loves his music and vinyl, but equally importantly, is passionate about South Australian Beer, wine, coffee and food. He runs a pop-up store most weekends, usually at an interesting pub or cafe. This lets me combine my main interests, and visit a new pub, sample a beer or wine while browsing, and I usually find something I'm interested in. He's also happy to order stuff in for you, and his prices are very ,very good ( including the more expensive stuff like new Mofi releases which he can get n for you). Unfortunately he only has new releases and nothing second hand. Highly recommended!
  14. Multi arm turntables

    Hi Mat Unfortunately, yes, a serious splurge... Another option may be 2 separate phono stages, so you only have to switch inputs on your preamp. You could get something decent for your LOMC, and something less expensive for the mono cart/arm if you're likely to use it less often, and probably spend much less than you would on 1 phono stage that does it all. Cheers Suresh
  15. Some LPs courtesy of @candyflip UK 1st pressing Mint, still sealed Dutch 1st pressing US 1st pressing These all sound fantastic. Great music and great pressings. Just a shameless plug for candylfip - my best source for secondhand vinyl on the net. Very fair pricing, great pressings, exactly as described, with prompt shipping and great packaging. You just cant go wrong!
