  1. SAT XD1 Direct Drive TT https://www.analogplanet.com/content/pre-munich-sat-announces-debut-xd1-direct-drive-record-player-system
  2. Welcome Looking forward to finding out how your vinyl set up goes
  3. Welcome Given that you're in Melbourne, have you had a look at one of the Vinylrevival stores? They seem to have a lot of turntable packages ( including TT + powered speakers)advertised at different price points that might suit you. You could also listen to the different systems to see how much of a difference there is between spending $700, $1500, etc. I agree with the previous posters that buying second hand will give better value for money, but buying a complete system from a store might allow you to have a listen to it beforehand, and also have the backup of a warranty if anything goes wrong. Cheers
  4. I've been listening to a bit of Glen Campbell recently, and then moved on to this to hear Johnny Cash's take on some of his best. The version of Wichita Lineman on this boxset is just sublime, and a nice touch is Gentle on My Mind with both Cash and Campbell. This is one of the best sets I own - everything about this is pretty close to perfect - the music , the sound quality, the pressings, etc
  5. Welcome Deon Have fun here. I did the same - CDs until about 5 years ago when I bought my first TT. It's a slippery slope to the dark side . Cheers
  6. Hi Rotur Can I take these if they’re still available? cheers
  7. The TT equivalent of this? Bugatti La Voiture Noire $19 million
  8. I'd agree with a couple of the posts above. I have 2 of these - the Bill Evans, and the Simon and Garfunkel, and to me, on my system, they both sound appreciably better than the other versions I have of these albums. The 45 rpm doesn't bother me, but I'd be happy if they were less expensive
  9. I'd like to try them, but I shudder to think how much 9 metre runs would cost.
  10. They're not hippos, they are sophisticated resonance control devices, and can also double as cable lifters..
  11. This is my little slice of vinyl heaven When it's done right, with the right gear, set up properly, and with the right records, vinyl sounds better to my ears than the best digital that I've heard. And it's more fun! It does, however, take more time and effort , and is dependent on the quality and condition of the the record.
  12. Arrived today and listening now. The Esher demos, just amazing. I wasn't a huge fan of this album until I listened to these versions.
