  1. I found some Elega CR-2072C electret headphones at a market yesterday. From what I can glean on the net it seems they are late 1960s. They’re in remarkably good condition if that’s the case. However, I think I need a matching adapter. I have an old pair of Stax electrets so I guess it’s the same for Elega. Has anyone had anything to do with Elega?

    BANG & OLUFSEN BEOVISION 6-26 TV

    I would like it please. Can collect whenever it suits.
  3. The new and last series of Catastrophe is coming to ABC soon. In the meantime all three series of this terrific comedy are on iview, but only for a couple of weeks. A lot of SBS series are online for months, but the ABC seems to go in for short stays.
  4. Good to know. I saw other recent Gales that looked awful too. Good name gone bad.
  5. I saw some nice little Aaron speakers yesterday at a garage sale, but I have speakers galore. Still looking.
  6. I don’t honestly know about these. Gale speakers are not easy to find information on. Are they any good? https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/point-lonsdale/speakers/vintage-gale-speakers/1200617084
  7. Great thread. I showed it to my wife because I loved the photos and the find story, and she told me she wants one and for me to find it. As if!
  8. The Advent Loudspeaker, one owner with brochures. Just around the corner from me. Might be gone already after an hour or so online. I don’t know about $120, but gee they are famous. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/wonga-park/speakers/advent-vintage-speakers-sold-pending/1191590194
  9. I wondered about that too. Very close location. Helotoby is a good guy. I've bought a couple of things from him at good prices.
  10. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/murrumbeena/speakers/epitome-one-of-a-kind-custom-made-4-way-stereo-3kw-aes-speaker/1181004367 300k caught my eye, then 300kg each speaker. Guess that makes them $500 per kg. Some of the lovely speakers in classifieds here are a bargain at a kilo rate!
  11. I'll take it if you are prepared to post to Vic. Can pay by direct deposit if it suits. Thanks Jeremy
  12. https://www.theguardian.com/music/ng-interactive/2017/oct/24/from-arsedestroyer-to-zoogz-rift-50-underground-albums-youve-never-even-heard-of I've been wandering around this one. I only know of one of the many, Connie Converse.
  13. Just started on the fourth and apparently last series of The Bridge. Scary start, but a riveting story. So much European work to watch on SBS I can't keep up.

    Switching off gear at the power point

    Not really a hifi comment, but I get a lot of pleasure from turning things off at the powerpoint. My small comment on the Fed's ridiculous energy policy and the ripoff power companies. Other than getting solar everything, and hoping to get off the grid some time soon.

    ABC to dismantle sound libraries

    Trove's a wonderful thing. I use it just about every day one way or another. The thing I didn't get about the ABC library was sending it to Samoa. Does Samoa want a media, sound and music library? Minor point, I know, in a barbaric idea, but wtf.
