  1. Reading this post reminded me about something I read about Jazz bars in Japan https://thevinylfactory.com/features/tokyo-jazz-joints-visual-chronicle/ http://www.tokyojazzjoints.com
  2. The Mofi 1 Step of Blood on the Tracks - sounds amazing, and a big step up from the standard Mofi Version. Definitely worth a listen if you love this album
  3. Amen to that. Makes you wonder why they even bothered with the crap repress
  4. That sounds like what my wife said, except it was "YOU, really, truly dont need another TT "
  5. A German 1991 pressing of this classic GnR album ( courtesy of @candyflip ) Sounds amazing, and makes the more recent repress sound somewhat anaemic.
  6. I went through this process a couple of years ago. I was lucky enough one weekend to listen to The Classic Records pressings, some UK Plum/1st Pressings , a RL Led Zep II, and also some of the Road Case 45 RPM set, some on my system, and others at darthlakers place. If money was no object, I'd go for the Road Case. There was also something special about the Early UK pressings, but finding them in decent condition is difficult, and I think I preferred the Plum Led Zeppelin II over the RL version. The Classic Records pressings were very ,very good, and certainly much better than some random Aust pressings I already had, as well was the the more recent remastered/deluxe sets than came out a few years ago. I did prefer the UK 1st presses to the classic records. I've ended up with Classic Records pressings, as well as a UK Plum Led Zep II, and remain on the lookout for really nice copies of UK pressings of the others.
  7. If this doesn't sell as a complete lot, can I please have the Brahms Symphonies and the Mahler Symphony no 8?
  8. I've found the biggest benefit is with old mono records from the 50s and 60s. It really seems to reduce surface noise/etc With newer mono records, the Archon and the mono switch on the Edison seem to work just fine
  9. Thanks John Have you thought about a mono cartridge, now that you have the Arche headshell and can easily change cartridges? I've found it can make a big difference, especially with old mono jazz records. Cheers
  10. That system looks great, and I imagine would sound even better. May I ask what the long term plan is with 2 TTs? Does one work better with particular types of music, or is it just fun having 2 to play with? Cheers
  11. I've just sent you a PM about this with an intention to purchase Cheers
  12. The Bill Evans is still available from audiophilereferencerecordings, in Melbourne, via their website
