  1. Ive tried - stock feet - tangospinner feet which really just a way to level the TT, not much isolation - butchers block on bunnings squares - funk firm boings. Im loving the boings, the table is wobbly and seemed strange to use at the start, but used to it now and to me its perfect. cant comment on which one sounds better, but i can tell that the boings are best at making sure any vibrations dont get to the plinth which was my goal. Ive tested this by using a vibration iphone app, and also the stylus sitting on a record with volume cranked while tapping th
  2. Just tried this out on my lg bx oled from 2020, not sure of compatibility with other tvs but finally may have a use for the video/concert section of tidal i never use. Good to have on the TV, super useful for me as its in the lounge/kitchen area
  3. this version needs an elevator to the gallows... thought id ordered a black vinyl press
  4. Ive got the 5mm one on a rega rp3, did non-blind tests between it and acrylic mats, plus the stock with the vta changed back to normal. I love the funk mat, i also tried two funk achroplats but couldn't get them to be dead flat. Ive now stuck my funk mat to the glass platter and have given up on mat improvements. To me its an excellent product.
  5. Wouldn't tone controls and any kind of EQ be better set to suit your room instead of adjusting for each album? So done when setting up your system. Adjusting for each album sounds like it would be introducing more problems like the risk of over compensating treble/bass, therefor listening to music thats not close to what was released commercially. Im not ocd, but i think id go crazy if i was adjusting tone controls on every album.
  6. I thought jimmy page loved the recording of the drums in that song, the specific sound it makes. Its also been sampled a heap of times in songs. Im not saying it sounds good or bad, just remembering an interview where he was trying to find a specific sound. Maybe in ‘It might get loud’
  7. Hey, i sent my micro seiki solid 5 TT to my nephew in Launceston and the cart/headshell appears damaged. worked fine when i had it. - one tonearm wire (green) is hanging loose in headshell - one cartridge screw loose (may not be long enough but worked for me) which has thrown the cart out of alignment. anyone know of a TT service/repair person in launceston? That would be able to squeeze it in prior to christmas? cheers
  8. I need to clean up the metal plate a bit from excess stain run-off, but i think the tonearm looks great
  9. Sure would, they are backing their product with a good return policy i think (source FB funk firm page comments) wonder if that return policy counts in australia, or if just bought direct from funk.
  10. Item: vincent pho-8 Price Range: up to $300 inc postage Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: My nephew is getting my old Micro seiki, Solid 5 model TT as a christmas present. ive been given a budget of $300 to find a phono stage. Open to other items around the $200/300 mark depending on what it is. postage to 3226 in vic or Launceston tas. Thanks for looking, otherwise ill go the project/cambridge audio options if nothing comes up
  11. I listen to a lot of old blues artists represses of 30s and 40s music. None of that was recorded very well. Sounds great to me though
  12. Compared to Atom heart mother? ive tried a few times but its yet to click, whereas the wall gets me every time. Genuinely interested to hear why some love Atom Heart Mother. Im open to giving it another go, havnt heard it since listening to it on Cd in 2005
  13. Im about a month into a 5mm achromat on a rp3 thats replacing a clear acrylic 4mm mat. Ive been listening to more music of late, and really enjoying the TT but i did put funk’s boing feet on around same time. The TT is sounding best its sounded. Wobbles a bit when you touch it but settles super quick.
  14. Ive got a Micro ‘Solid 5’ which i think is one of their cheapest version of their range, 1970s i think. The tonearm is fantastic but it has some slight speed issues probably due to its age. I havnt had it looked at. Ive also got a rp3, and the rega beats it in my set up.
