  1. Sorry, been out of the loop for a bit so have only just seen your question. Have been running one of the late Duc's wood bodied DL103r's. Sounds very nice. Touch wood, no issues whatsoever with the table. I think if you ran a decent tonearm with the table you'd have a formidable combo. My arm is only so-so. Good luck with your purchase, hope it works out for you.
  2. Yeah ditto. Slightly off topic, but I really wish that On the Night would get reissued. Buying a second hand copy is exorbitant. Hell, I'd be satisfied with a Back to Black copy....
  3. Yes, Pick Withers was a criminally underrated drummer imo. His jazz leanings gave the music a subtlety that subsequent drummers didn't quite emulate.
  4. I've been a DS fan since my teens, so I'll be very interested to hear the MOFI treatment on these classics. Love Over Gold especially should shine I think, tracks like Telegraph Road and Private Investigations which have quiet passages as well as powerful explosive parts particularly pique my interest. There is a part in Telegraph Road which sometimes, still after all these years and listens, brings a tear to my eye haha.
  5. So has anyone received any of these new MOFI DS titles yet? Curious to get some feedback...
  6. Can't imagine its $1500 better than my pawn shop and subsequently refurbed MK2. I could whack a Jelco arm on her and still be ahead I reckon. Such is the scale of economy I guess. Happy to see the return of Technics in Aus tho for sure.
  7. I'll let others comment on whether this would be a suitable match for your current system, but wowsers, Earle's tube amps are something else...poetry in motion...
  8. There are some awesome second hand tables for sale around the traps. My local hifi guy still has a Project Classic with an Ortofon Quintet Bronze with no more than 100 hours on it, the table had six weeks of use and came back cos the guy had upgraditis...$1200 for the package. Can't seem to move it. I'd grab it if I could justify three tables lol.
  9. Yes, have read plenty of glowing reviews of BIA in MOFI version. I doubt the new DS titles will disappoint either. I only have a couple of Japanese pressings, and mostly they don't disappoint either.
  10. Slightly off topic re the Japanese pressings....but it would be a hoot to compare the Maxicut Love Over Gold press to the newly released MOFI version....Have yet to read any reviews of the new MOFI Dire Straits cuts.
  11. I can vouch for the Debut Carbon albeit modded somewhat (as you do in this game) with an acrylic platter and 2M Bronze cart. Sounded fantastic, although I can see the sense in investing up the food chain. Just my 2c
  12. I'd suggest you email Geoff @aurealis directly and let him know your specific requirements. His service is amazingly refreshing.
  13. +1 for the Wooden bodied 103R from the late Duc, whom also supplied me with a little Dynavector SUT. Sounds very nice on my DP75 with a DA 307 tonearm. I couldn't comment on how the 103R would sound on other tonearms, I suspect compliance matching would be reasonably critical-apologies if this is a no brainer statement lol. I assumed (wrongly) that a 2m Bronze/Black would sound killer on my tonearm, only to be quite disappointed. The 103R is a much better match.
  14. If you can source a used 2M Bronze you'll get a great cart without spending a tonne of cash first up. The Bronze is less detailed than the black, but is more forgiving and has a fun factor to it as well. Certainly the above recommendations are worth a look also, just depends on the direction you wish to go soundwise.
  15. I have one of these, except mine has an original (inferior) Denon DA307 tonearm. So this table would sound next level I bet. Fantastic table, and rare as rocking horse droppings. Buy with confidence.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. I certainly wont be moving my DP75 on any time soon either!
  21. Hehe, yes got mine from AV Concept in Toowoomba. Warwick is great to deal with and I never pay RRP 😉
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
