  1. Wonderful music. Hope Sandoval’s voice is extraordinary.
  2. https://www.abc.net.au/doublej/music-reads/music-news/david-roback-mazzy-star-died-61/12001562
  3. Some things just vanish fast. The Rogers Cadet out at Hazeldene was there for about 24 hours too. Must have been first series, I had the devil of a job trying to fathom which model.
  4. Some serious real estate there, so it may well be. About ten minutes from where I live. No spare $ though.
  5. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/park-orchards/other-audio/consonance-droplet-5-0-cd-player/1242136052 Also has Martin Logan Monoliths $1500. Park Orchards in Vic.
  6. Kensonic Laboratory and Accuphase. Same seller. Horrible photos. https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2594098187514449/ https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2732894700121340/
  7. Quick work here in spotting this one. Seems like we need real jobs! Can’t see it lasting long, but not much use if you already have a fair bit of gear.
  8. A Linn system in Melbourne https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/206270133821942/
  9. Good deed for that seller, not so good deed for the lucky purchaser. I think of an asking price as an asking price
  10. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/northcote/stereo-systems/turntable-thorens/1238958831 Woops
  11. I can’t track down which models turntable and stage. A cleverer person here might know. I like the ICBA in the ad.
  12. No mention of Aaron in the advert, but likely Aaron Quintet. If I didn’t have a lot of speakers I’d go and have a look. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/doncaster/speakers/quintet-speakers/1222752512
  13. I’ve been running a business selling collectibles sourced from op shops (not CDs or LPs) amongst other places for two decades. Near enough makes a living for two. By and large op shops should leave special pricing alone. They generally have no idea. In the area I do know in a professional way they almost never get it right. The silliest effort I’ve seen is putting items in a taped plastic bag with a note ‘selling for $62 on Ebay’. Unsurprisingly that op shop closed. And as you say, who pays money for bagpipes and Kamahl or nineteenth century religious tomes. The best sort of op shops have flat pricing, all shirts $2, all books $1. It means they get flow of stock which will bring customers to look more often. I know from talking to lots of volunteers they have way more stuff than they know what to do with, so move it on.
  14. Op shop CDs and LPs are a great way of learning about new music you might not have known about. I know several 50 cent places. Not much to lose. I’ve been playing a silly game for a while, particularly with classical music, looking for ‘great performances’ of music I know or know of. I’ll be the guy checking reviews on my phone. Found some great things and learned about musicians and conductors I didn’t know about.
