    Rega RB 330 rewire

    Thanks guys. The wire broke at the plug at the top of the tonearm. According to those in the industry it takes a bit to snap them there which is why I was surprised by the break

    Rega RB 330 rewire

    Hi guys I’m just looking for some recommendations for a rewire of a 3 mth old RB330. Unfortunately a wire broke away from the tonearm as I was changing a cart. I have been told by Synergy that I have voided the warranty because I took the tonearm off to take it into my local service agent. Bit rough I reckon but alas here I am. I have been reading about the litz wires and wondering if they make a notable difference to sq. Has anyone rewired their Rega tonearm and if so are there any recommendations as to who can do it. Many thanks Mark
  4. Tough one, but i would have to say Johnny Cash - Unchained. The Man in Black backed by the Heartbreakers is not a bad combo..... The pressings from American Recordings of his final albums are fantastic.

    Vinyl / Records Currently Spinning

    A truly great album. Try a Pallas pressing from Warner Bros......Better IMO

    Bad pressing ??

    The rest of the album is not too bad. Ramble On sounds fine. Some songs are just mixed horribly. Namely the first 2 which spoils the whole record. The hit and miss of vinyl I guess

    Bad pressing ??

    Thanks for that Candyflip. Very disappointing actually. I have lV and it sounds pretty good which is why I bought LZ ll. Should’ve done a bit more research

    Bad pressing ??

    Hi everyone New to the vinyl game and need some help. I’ve bought a brand new pressing of Led Zep ll (2014 version). After listening to the first 2 tracks, there are some guitar parts that are really quiet compared to the rest of the band, namely JP,s solo on Whole Lotta Love. The next song, What Is and What Should Never Be has the same issue towards the end of the song where JP,s guitar should alternate between the left & right speaker. One guitar part is loud & the other is quiet. Almost like the balance is out. I haven’t listened to the rest of the album yet. Is this just a bad pressing? I have a Rega Planar 6 with an Exact cart which is new. Thanks Mark
  9. Hi I'll grab it if not already gone. Thanks
  10. Luckily bought the box set from Amazon last night- No good this morning. With the reviews I’ve read I’m looking forward to a listen 👍
  11. Does anyone know it’s true that Amazon will ban Australians from buying from their US store because of the new GST rules? Looks like I might have to purchase this box set quick
  12. Ah my very first amp. Brought back some memories. If I had a man cave I’d grab it. GLWS
