  1. Angie Mcmahon - Salt Debut album from this rising Aussie songstress. Wonderful, surprisingly deep and mature sounding voice. The future of music is in good hands with artists like Angie coming through. Limited edition Blue vinyl.
  2. The Gomez reissues are starting to become available now. Loved Liquid Skin back in the day, and on first spin of the new reissue it sounds very nice indeed.
  3. I have a DP75 which I picked up for a reasonable price a bit over a year ago. It was a one owner original from a deceased estate. It has a DA307 tonearm which apparently isn't the best, but mounted with one of the late Duc's wood bodied 103R carts it sounds really nice, media quality not withstanding. I can only compare it to my Technics 1200Mk2 with a 2m black cart. Two different beasts really. I like em both.
  4. Was using a 2M Black on my 1200mk2 for a while before I acquired the Denon DP75. It sounded really, really good. Different to the 103R on my Denon of course in the typical characteristic way of the black. A bronze would probably be the sweet spot I think, more fun and rocky, warmer with slightly less detail than the black.
  5. I certainly wont be moving my DP75 on any time soon either!
  6. Hehe, yes got mine from AV Concept in Toowoomba. Warwick is great to deal with and I never pay RRP 😉
  7. I often wonder if there would be much difference performance wise between the PHO8 and my GS Communicator with PSU1, although I'm keen to explore a tube phono stage, so the PHO701 holds some interest for me.
  8. So these were the ceiling mounted ones Zip? I figure if you're not asking too much of them they'll be fine. We used ours just to get audio from the TV into the kitchen so the wife could cook etc whilst having the TV audio right there instead of trying to project the sound right across the living area.
  9. Hi mate, yes have had some experience with their in ceiling and outdoor speakers. Got some installed in our last home, fairly modern brick block home, low gyprock ceilings. For the money they were very decent I found, with my local Hifi supplier recommending them over their Yamaha counterparts. Had them running solidly most days for about three years before we sold the house. I can't remember specific model numbers etc though sorry.
  10. Haha, I'd forgotten about CD's, how silly of me! I just don't use them any more, even though I've about 500 or so in storage.
  11. One take on this is that it is somewhat of a rebellion against the 'playlist' mentality, which still has a place in music listening I think, especially in more social situations. However, for personal listening, a proportion of us, and lets face it its probably the shoppers with more disposable income, prefer to listen to a full album. It would be interesting to see the age demographic of who is buying records. And of the younger customers, are they buying records to listen to an album in its entirety? Or is it more so just for collecting's sake?
  12. Lots of options available to you really, depending on budget of course. The Hana carts have always been reviewed favourably and I would love to acquire one someday to try. The late great Duc supplied me with a wood bodied DL103r and an inexpensive SUT to run into my Graham Slee MM phono stage. Probably not quite as detailed as my 2M Black, but has a warmer sound (for want of a better expression). So getting into MC could be something to look at as well. Which ever way you go don't forget to report back. I love to hear how the journey progresses for us punters!
  13. Thanks Steve. I just checked the specs against the PHO 701 and it seems very similar as well. Similar price point to the 701. I think I'd rather the tubes myself
  14. Aye, at more than twice the price of the PHO-8 it would want to bring something new and better to the party. Have any other gurus here had a look at the specs and can they shed some light on where the price difference might lie?
  15. If you could get hold of a good used 2M Bronze for your Debut Carbon I think you'd be happy for a bit. Did this upgrade myself and was very pleased with the result. Really made my system come alive.
