  1. If memory serves me correctly, and as I get older the less reliable it becomes, this was a current item somewhen around the mid '80's. I had its lesser specified brother, the SA2, paired with a PMF2150B power amp. I had them so close together that I needed to get a sheet of 1/8" steel to place between them to stop an almighty hum. At one point I had a TS2 as well, a tape switching unit that allowed for up to three decks and it had a phono input with loading options as well.
  2. Item: Yamaha M60 Power Amp Location: Wollongong Price: $625 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this from @BATMAQN in early2017 and took delivery about a year later (after long term hospitalisation). The reason I bought it was "I've always wanted to try one of these in my system" and so I have. Trouble is, I enjoy my main amp so much that this is lying idle 99% of the time which is a terrible waste of an otherwise excellent piece of kit. I'm certain that there is someone out there who can get great enjoyment from it, so here it is, come and get it. Will come to you as I received it, without box or manual. Here's the original post by @BATMAQN : Will deliver, if close enough, for the cost of petrol, otherwise will pack and have it couriered at your expense. Or you can come and collect it if you fancy a day out. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. This might be worth your while. I have no connection with the seller.
  4. Strangely enough, almost thirty years ago when these were a current model, I thought that the 401's were the pick of the litter. Not up to the standards of most of the better brands but, considering their then price (which I cannot remember) these gave the best bang for the bucks. A lot more musical than the 901's ever were. Would be ideal for parties and such like.
  5. Nothing, absolutely nothing, exceeds like excess. But, yes, a great show.
  6. Without having heard one, and going only on what I have read, you might try investingating the PS Audio BHK Signature Pre-amp. https://magentaaudio.com.au/product/ps-audio-bhk-signature-preamplifier/ I have no connection with either PS Audio or Magenta, just an interested bystander.
  7. Playing in The Gong on Saturday, July 27th. I'm sure that there must be other dates but that's the one that's relevant to me. It's billed as An Intimate Evening with Kiki Dee and Carmelo Luggeri, so I'm guessing that it won't be a full on rock show. Nonetheless, she's one hell of a talent and I can hardly wait. As long as she plays Heart and Soul I will, for one, be satisfied.
  8. The second series of Happy! is now available. The story of an ex-cop turned hit-man. alcoholic, drug crazed loving (but unreliable) father who is adopted by his daughter's imaginary friend. I never thought that you could get something like this coming out of America. Hugely violent but as funny as a fart in a bath too. The lead actor, Christopher Meloni, was a straight laced cop in some other cop show (was aware of it but I never watch anything on the commercial stations). Am delighted to report that series two is just as twisted, sick, zany and intriguing as was the first. Highly recommended.
  9. Purchased today: King Crimson - Islands 44.1/24 King Crimson - Starless and Bible Black 44.1/24 Jethro Tull - Thick as a Brick 96/24
  10. The End of Downloads? I think not. The end of Apple as the go to music source of a generation? Again, I think not. The end of Apple plundering that generation who have grown up thinking that they are the ducks nuts? Definitely, positively not! But how does this affect us and the wider, non Apple acolyte world? I suppose that depends upon just how much the individual is reliant on Apple for their music. Personally, it doesn't affect me one little bit. I suspect that the people who use Spotify, Tidal,et al may find that it's a bit of a nothing event as well. There are always going to be people who want to have their own personal copy of whatever music floats their boat, be that an Edison roll, a shellac 78, vinyl, cd, or as a file residing on a hard drive. For them the streaming services are like a tasting platter in a fancy restaurant, you give everything a try and having done so you then go back and order the dishes that particularly took your fancy. If your restaurant of choice (to stretch the metaphor) is Apple then you have some changes coming your way which, in a years time, will appear as a fading ripple in your memory. For the rest of us life will go on as normal. This change in the Apple business model will have no effect whatever on the way I search out, listen to and buy the music that I do. There are plenty of places to buy new music from out there aside from Apple. Bandcamp springs to mind, as does Nugs.com and UMlive. Los of studio recorded music and lots of live recorded music. A little searching on the net can find you with a myriad of options if only you take the time to look. The choice is yours.
  11. Yes, later night is the best time around here as far as SQ is concerned. Not being a drinker of alcohol the theory concerning less inhibitions doesn't stand up to scrutiny, not here a least. I do wonder if it can be down to less all around sensory input (less light, less background noise, possibly less mains borne hash, usually less people to demand your attention etc) and, again in my situation, more subdued lighting allowing me to concentrate more on the music and how it sounds? Wouldn't mind trying one of those PS Audio devices at some point either.
  12. Well, around here, they're certainly wetter. 😉
  13. I had an old TEAC three head cassette deck, we're in the early '80's here, and I wanted something better, I wanted a Nakamichi but it was $800!!!! I bit the bullet and paid $500 for a Kenwood, took it home, unboxed it and plugged it in and made a couple of tapes. Sun went down, sun came up. I re-boxed the Kenwood and took it to the Nakamichi dealer. Obligingly they gave me most of the money I had spent on the Kenwood as a trade-in value against the Nakamichi. Not all, but some. I was lucky that time around.
  14. Try contacting the Australian importers, they will be able to point you in the direction of an authorised technician. https://audioactive.com.au/luxman-japan/
