  5. I am a Creek fan and have owned a Arcam Fgm Ar 19. The Arcam sounded like listening to creek gear underwater (pardon the pun). Selby Thornbury are selling the creek gear cheap as it is a brand that Selby do not usually stock but they inherited when they purchased a store and stock from Hi Tek Hi Fi.

  13. Hi Wimbo I was thinking in the $500- $1000 mrk for a new turntable, but will have a think about it and possibly just upgrade the cartridge as I am currently using an intro level one. The old technics really are pretty easy to live with. Jim
  14. Thanks Mike This is good advice. I feel that the set up sounds good and the phono stage is real good. It's just that you read all this stuff about Thorens , Linn etc. My turntable prior to the technics I purchased new in the 80's from Encel, it was a yamaha and it was crap. When I plugged in the Technics I was rapt. Thornbury records gave me a good deal on an Orofon 10 so all in all I am doing alright. Thanks again Mike. Jim
  15. Thanks wen for your reply. I did check out the Garrott and learnt a little about the company and thier history, interesting stuff. You can still get a re tip in Melbourne as well. My initial post was not very well composed and what I was really thinking was what would be a good replacement for the whole turntable. Thanks Jim
  16. Yes the turntable is not too bad. The stylus would no doubt be an entry level so maybe it would be a good idea to upgrade that before I buy a new the whole turntable. Thanks Jim
  17. Hello Vinyl Nuts I was hoping to get some suggestions for an upgrade for my turntable. I am currently using a Technics SL Q212 which i picked up from hard rubbish . I took it up to Thornbury Records and had a Orofon stylus put on. Sounds pretty good to me but I feel I could probably do better. I am using a Creek Phono Pre and have a resonably good system and am thinking that a turntable upgrade might be the next move. I listen to Country, Blues ,Folk and Jazz sort of stuff. Have heard that it is a good idea to purchase a new turntable as opposed to vintage or second hand but was told this by a sales person so not sure if this is right. Thanks Jim
  18. Thanks James I can't believe how cheap some of this stuff is.
  19. Thanks Ppaul You are right. My current plan is to buy a cheap mini mixer from Manny's ($84.00)and hook it up to one of the many amps that I cannot bring myself to sell . I will then buy a cheap set of bookshelfs and see how things work out . Jim
  20. Thanks very much for your feedback. I will need to have a think about letting her near the system. Jim
  21. Hi knowledgeable folk I was wondering if anybody knew how to set up a micrphone into a 2 channel stereo set up. My daughter would like to practice her singing . Thanks Jim
