  1. Get a piece of notepad paper with lines on it. Stand it on end on the platter and a record and next to the tonearm. Adjust till the lines on the paper are level with the tonearm. Hope this makes sense.
  2. Hi Jas Welcome to the forum. Nice to see another Tassie member. Paul
  3. I use 200,000 and 500,000 cst, and blend if required for different turntables.
  4. The dual 505 is an underrated turntable. They are not very complicated if you are handy. Apart from a pitch belt (easily replaceable) not much goes wrong with them. As a party trick, you can lift the left side up to 45 degrees and it will still track the record properly. Properly set up, they sound great.
  5. I just remember what I have, but I also remember automotive part numbers from 40 years ago when I was in that industry. I don't like over complicating stuff. If I see a peg board with the outline of tools, it freaks me out. The thought of cataloguing my collection (100s of LPs) sends a shiver through me.
  6. I won't bother putting pictures up. Just plugged them in and they sound like crap.
  7. I will try to put some pictures up tonight. Time poor.
  8. ATL 703s speakers? A set of these has come to me, but I have never heard of them. They are made in Germany. Any information out there?
  9. Always good to see another Tasmanian. A big step up to the Rega, although I still have a soft spot for the old Duals.
  10. I have added this to my wish list
  11. Welcome John You have a very generous friend gifting you a valve pre and mono blocks. Enjoy the audio ride.
  12. Just sent one from Hobart to Melbourne exactly like this. It took a while to disassemble and package it all. Sent it via Australia Post. Now I have to talk them through the reconstruction process.
  13. Hi Wesley Welcome to the forum. I am here in sunny downtown Cygnet. Plenty of us down in Tas. Cheers Paul
  14. Item: Turntable Price Range: $70 Item Condition: Extra Info: Anyone traveling from Hobart to the Hifi show? I have a packaged turntable that needs to be delivered very close to the Hifi show. Prefer this to Australia Post. Willing to pay $70 Paul Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  15. I have had a lot of them made up in Hobart, with the top and back rolled and the sides adhered. Never had any of them out of shape or warped. If you want the number and name of the plastics place, send me a Pm. Hope it is not the same place.
