  1. Nigel at Speakerbug sells polyfill as well as the felt-like sheeting you have pictured. He is at Mount Ommaney www.speakerbug.com.au
  2. Such a polarizing discography. It shows how subjective music can be, the shear fact Making Movies is on the bottom of ones list then right at the top of others. Making Movies is the only title I didn't bother buying when MOFI released them. Maybe I should give it another burl. The original CD of Making Movies is god awful and the original vinyl was a bit better. Maybe MOFI have nailed it this time.
  3. I have heard the SCIV's so I could comment on them vs the similarly sized Princess or Sovereign. Unsure if that would benefit you at all.
  4. One of my favourite bands so I am naturally curious as to how you would rank their studio albums. I expect to see a lot of variations and will be surprised if there is a particular album that is consistently number 1. I'll start it off with my potentially controversial list. 1. Self Titled - One of the greatest debut records of all time. Down To The Waterline, Lions, Six Blade Knife are all bangers. Even the less appreciated gems like In The Gallery and Southbound Again. I just love this album, I mentioned it's one of the greatest debut records of all time, perhaps it's just one of the greatest records period? 2. On Every Street - A random one for you. I was going to put Communique here but after careful consideration I think this is their 2nd best album. Planet of New Orleans, Iron Hand, You and Your Friend and Fade To Black are some of my go to tracks. Can't forget Calling Elvis and the title track. An often over looked album but in my opinion, one of their best. 3. Communique - The first side of this LP is excellent listening. Once Upon A Time In the West has long been one of my reference tracks. Dire Straits always had such well recorded drums and this is no exception. Where Do You Think Your Going would be one of my favourites from the band. In true Knopfler fashion he leaves the best till last and delivers an epic guitar driven outro (when doesn't he). Follow Me Home has a cool vibe and a perfect closing track for the record. 4. Love Over Gold - When ranking it doesn't look "right" seeing this album so far down but it's mainly due to it's briefness. The songs are long but few. This has the classic Telegraph Road which is the pinnacle of Knopfler's song writing IMO. The classic demo track Private Investigations is always a go to but the 2nd side rarely gets a play by me. The title track is a solid song but I have to be in the mood. Industrial Disease, no thank you. It Never Rains has the typical Knopfler outro that I always look forward to. 5. Brothers In Arms - Never a big fan of their most commercially successful albums. Money For Nothing is solid but like Sultans of Swings I have heard it too many times and would never play it. The stand outs for me here are Latest Trick, The Mans Too Strong and Ride Across the River, the latter being an usual song within their catalogue but excellent nonetheless. 6. Making Movies - No, it's just cheesy. Also their worst sounding record IMO. Tunnel of Love is alright but it goes on a little too long. Romeo and Juliet is a classic but over played. Expresso Love shows promise at the intro but the chorus falls flat. Skateaway had me when I was a kid but just can't stomach it these days.
  5. Yeah without the original box it's too scary. Shipping anything with large glass sections is worry-some.
  6. Extra Info: Comes with NOS Telefunken ECC83s in the linestage. Factory tubes in the MC/MM phono section. Has the new Mcintosh replacement remote which looks a million times better than the old and the plastic doesn't go sticky. IMO the C2300 and C2200 are far better preamps than the newer models. I don't have the original box so shipping local pick up only. Apologies for the smudges on the glass face plate, these were not visible when I was taking the photos. In near new condition. Specifications Frequency response: 10Hz to 100kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.08% Gain: 60dB (MC), 40dB (MM), 15dB (line) Input sensitivity: 0.45mV (MC), 4.5mV (MM), 450mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 80dB (MC), 80dB (MM), 93dB (line) Output: 2.5V (Pre out), 8V (Pre out Max) Dimensions: 444 x 152 x 457mm Weight: 13.41kg Photos: Edited October 29, 2019 by kelossus 5
  7. Further information: Purchased these on Ebay as end of line stock. These are brand new in the box factory sealed. Quite a few Dynaudios being cleared out at the moment and these are keenly priced, $500 less than anywhere I can see advertised and a little less than what I paid. Looking to recoup funds from an impulse buy that is going to lead no where. Photos:
  8. A few interestate inquiries. I will include insured freight in the asking price to anyone on the east coast.
  9. [NSW] JBL L7 Floorstanding speakers For $1000 this a pretty good buy. Great drivers used throughout, particularly the 12inch woofer. It's a beast. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/edensor-park/speakers/jbl-high-end-speakers-l7-model/1251527637
  10. Amazing pictures.....Nice load bearing pillar in the background, looks flash.
  11. I wouldn't buy the 43xx monitors you have listed. If you want white woofers get a pair of L96's, 4411's or L112's. They are light years ahead.
  12. Unsure how expensive the 670's are but $1000 is what I would consider a premium price for the 4412A's. For $1000 they would want to be absolutely mint. The vinyl cabinets of the 4412A don't handle knocks and bumps all that well. They are also littered with electrolytics while the older veneer 4412 had poly caps. I would go the JBL's if I had the option. That 12" is one of the better woofers from that era of JBL speakers. The tweeter/mid combo is tried and true. The mid-range is not as lively as the older LE5 and I actually prefer it to the LE5. If the tweeter is damped properly they are great. If you were considering NS1000's that would be a much harder pick.
  13. Further information: Excerpt from my P9 Ad regarding the Phono The real surprise to me was the phono stage, it is seriously good for the money. Has all the gain, loading and coil resistance settings to satisfy just about any cartridge. Jet black background and quite warm for a SS phono. There is no discernible difference between the original IOS and current reference model besides the balanced outputs and a new case. These are a serious bargain and seldom come up for sale. The Rega Ios is a four stage, all symmetrical amplifier. The first stage uses a 1:10 step-up transformer which can be optimised to the cartridge by the selection of the correct loading and Zobel DC resistance correction network connected across the MC transformer secondary. The second stage is a symmetrical, compound pair class A amplifier, using paralleled low noise Hitachi transistors in the input stage. This drives the passive high frequency part of the RIAA (Record Industry Association of America) equalization stage. The third stage is a symmetrical class ‘A’ differential amplifier with a common base driver stage; this is also used as the active amplifier in the low frequency part of the RIAA equalization stage. The fourth stage is the active filter. This configuration uses the same circuit as found in the second stage. The filter element uses a very high bandwidth operational amplifier. The power supply is a symmetrical, discrete tracking power supply using fast diodes and a low noise voltage reference. Each stage has its own localised power supply and LED referenced current generators. Very high quality polypropylene capacitors have been used in the signal path. 1% tolerance polypropylene capacitors are used in the RIAA EQ stages and audio grade capacitors are used in the rest of the circuit.
