  1. Both are set at 2. The internet says the tracking weight should be set between 1.5 to 3 - so I chose 2 as a nice round number. Does a lighter weight help with IGD?
  2. New? No, stylus is old (I'm assuming). Bought it 2nd hand. Just did a search on the Stevenson alignment. Will give this a go tomorrow to see how far out it is. Thanks for the tip.
  3. I've got a bad case of IGD (inner groove distortion). It's real nasty. Any vinyl doctors out there got a remedy for me? I'm new to this but this is what I have. Marantz 6350 Shure M95EJ cart Probably all about 30 yrs old as I recently purchased 2nd hand. All (now 6 records!) have the same problem. Where should I start? I'm fairly certain I've set up the cart correctly but.....maybe not.
  4. Great [emoji849]- got one coming from rare waves shortly. Hope it's a flatty. I received an ECM one today from the same eBay seller as the Ben Folds ones (importcds-au) and it's not too bad. Not 100% but pretty good in comparison. I sent them a message about the warped ones - I'll see if they respond before I give them neutral feedback.
  5. Chuck them in the oven? Yeah , not so sure about that. Surely that'll affect the grooves and cause distortions, no? Anyhow, as I said no discernible loss in SQ so I've left some feedback for the seller so we'll see what they come back with. You know, one thing I do like about the black discs is that I've been listening to a whole album start to end rather than just impatiently jumping through tracks on iTunes.
  6. Another noob question - can you lay them on a hard surface with a couple of books on top to flatten them out? So much to learn here....
  7. Brand new from, what seems to be a popular eBay seller from the US. I have 2 more on the way from other eBay sellers so we'll see what they are like when they arrive. My work is close to Lawson Records on Pitt St so will have a browse through there tomorrow to see if anything takes my fancy and do a compare with a 2nd hand.
  8. Hi there. Vinyl newb here. Picked up a nice Marantz 6350 from Tivoli HiFi on Friday as a start to my vinyl journey (thanks Jimsan). My record collection consists of 2 albums (so far). Both are new 180g releases from Analogue Spark. Being a Ben Folds tragic one is Songs for Silverman and the other is Messner. Both appear a bit warped - is this "normal"? I always thought records would be a bit flatter than this. Doesn't appear to affect sound quality.
  9. Absolutely the best and fastest file management utility. I could do everything with a couple of keystrokes. Much faster than clicking with a mouse these days.
  10. Thanks! But I picked one up on Gumtree a couple of weeks ago. Very happy with mine as well.
  11. I had the same crackling problem with my newly-acquired (2nd hand) Rel T5. Turns out i didnt have it wired correctly to the amp (i should have paid more attention to the instructions). Maybe double check how yours is wired?
  12. Flock! Just missed out again.... Next Rel T5 for sale is mine goddamit!
  13. Sad about Phil not commentating - wont be the same. Do we still get Gabriel Gate though?
  14. Thanks. I like the look of this one. Anyone else with other recommendations? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Does anyone use one of these types of plug in power consumption meters and if anyone has any recommendations as to which one to get. https://reductionrevolution.com.au/products/plug-in-power-meter I'm interested to know how much power my fish tank is using. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

Item: a number of Blu ray, DVD and Wii empty cases Location: Leichhardt, Sydney Price: free Item Condition: good to excellent Reason for selling: no longer required - have put all the kids DVDs into CD wallets to save space Payment Method: Pickup only - sorry, not interested in posting Extra Info: I have 24 DVD, 14 Wii game (same size as DVD) and 36 empty Blu ray cases all in good to excellent condition to give away to a good home.

  21. Made me a bit homesick that one. Grew up in brissy but been in Sydney the past 15 years. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. This was one of my favourite bits of "The Games". "How long is the 100m track?" "It's about 100m" Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
