  1. Enjoyed this DAR discussion on CD as a source. While I haven't a high end player, I'm really enjoying buying a lot of CDs second hand at silly low prices. For CDs this is what 1995 was for vinyl, bargain bins or landfill. You can absolutely be sure that in 10 or 20 years there will be a CD revival, driven by human's desire for tactile objects, nostalgia and plain old contrary hipness. Having recently moved overseas, I shipped most of my vinyl and a few CDs. As I boxed up my remainder CDs and put them into storage, my main feeling was "I'm going to have a great time in 10 or 15 years discovering this collection again. That is never going to happen with my Spotify account.
  2. Meanwhile, here is a cover of one of my favourite Wilco songs.
  3. I did Google "The 200 Best Albums of the 2010s for 50 Something Audiophiles", but drew a blank. I did find this list to make a few more SNAers happy, though it does span the decades and still manages to contain FKA Twigs & Thundercat. 😉 https://www.whathifi.com/features/50-albums-audiophiles
  4. It's a well known problem. Google Records & PVC off gassing, PVC fogging, PVC clouding. It has ruined entire pristine collections. Fortunately I have only come across a few when buying second hand. It's real and unrepairable.
  5. Just received my first Yahoo email notification of a PM in a while. Notification email received: Friday 20/9 12.33 AEST Actual PM sent: Wednesday 18/9 06.45 AEST Update: Just got a near live email notification, so maybe issue resolved.
  6. I'm sure it "sparks joy" for the owner. So meets Marie Kondo standards.
  7. Just logging in as another Yahoo mail user not getting notifications (of PMs).
  8. Responding to a couple of questions made via PM. The frame sits on adjustable spikes, and I'll throw in my set of DIY floor protectors for free (worth at least 80 cents!) Each shelf is mounted on corner spikes which are adjustable.
  9. Item: FS: (Perth) Audiofurn 5 Shelf Hifi Rack with marble shelves Location: Perth (inner northern suburbs) Price: $350 Item Condition: Used condition few scratches on frame here and there but barely noticeable. Reason for selling: Part of my going overseas sale Payment Method: Pickup – Cash, local pickup only Extra Info: Bought from SNA classifieds a few years ago. Originally from Franks Prowse Hifi. Apparently very expensive originally, custom made in Perth by Derk Brock of Audiofurn. Great functionality and has served me well for the last few years. 105cm high x 65cm wide x 45cm deep and weighing over 100kg when assembled. The shelves sit on spikes welded to the one piece steel frame. Photos are of the actual unit, just borrowed from the previous owners listing, as I haven’t taken new photos yet. Obviously the components on the shelf are not included.
  10. Yep, I use 2 of the disposable version, but haven't disposed of them yet. https://www.bunnings.com.au/shur-line-handi-painter_p1670161
  11. Re-stating the obvious. Kind of Blue There is a reason for these common quotes: "Greatest ever jazz album" "Highest selling jazz album" "If you only own one jazz album....." Enter the gateway, then down the rabbit hole, ☺️
  12. Gods. I can forgive some "borrowing" in their compositions as they took the inspiration to another place musically. I'm also surprised how long it took before some actions were taken against them. Surely some people noticed the influence/similarity back in the day, I think that shows the attitudes back 50 years about "influencing & borrowing" music. Anyhoo, "Houses of the Holy" is my fave of the lot and pretty much a key album in my appreciation of music. Another great podcast from Jeremy Dylan (and Ash Naylor) about it here: https://jeremydylan.net/podcast/e2cjsc8nhbgstahctk9kkcthzlpxs7
  13. I was speaking last week to a very sensible and media savvy Perth band leader and she said its all about "physical product and a download code" for the current punters. They listen to the download and the tangible cassette comes in at about 1/5 of the cost of a small vinyl run.
  14. How good is the sound on this...
