  1. Misleading. He gives a poetic knowlegeable description of Accuphase, and ends with “make me an offer”. I assume he’s not talking an offer less than $50. The list price is just a hook.
  2. Man I almost bought these Tannoys off Gumtree.... https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/campbellfield/building-materials/modern-design-metal-letter-boxes-mail-boxes/1198083226
  3. 540w! Yoiks. Won’t a new telly pay you back in equivalent electricity saving? That’s gonna add up if you watch a lot of telly...
  4. As you’ve alluded to, reflections are the main issue. You need to accept that they’re unavoidable, and the surface has to be really clean! Then you’ll need very even lighting. Any point source of light (such as a flash or any bulb/strip) will reflect. Thus, the best approach is to try to even out light sources. Studios have big light box things, but you’ll have to innovate. Try wax cooking paper over a cardboard box or similar. Ensure the source bounces away from your camera, not back at it. Surrounds will be reflected off the surface, so you may need to hang plain sheets around the place. Even with all the right gear it’s a challenge, so just play about with it!
  5. Can be had for $99 currently. How would this compare to older Bose units?
  6. Ghttps://www.ebay.com.au/itm/293126961906?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&fromMakeTrack=true I use one of these. Ooooodles of grunt if you need to drive difficult loads....
  7. Ah dammit. I always see these things after the fact
  8. Here comes a controversial and possibly incendiary comment. Ive have heard well implemented Maggie’s. I get it. BUT Is it just me, or do people start with Maggies (or similar). And then spend years and years and thousands and thousands, and more years and years, and tweak here, and a tweak there, and, and, and..., I know nirvana can be found, but geez, aren’t they just a bit too much of a pain in the arse to get right? Maybe it’s the fact that a more “conventional” system is more inclined towards “synergism”? Heh. Fire extinguisher at the ready!
  9. Man. That’s just the thing to curl up to on a cold winter’s night.
  10. This is really great. Live recording. Aussie EMI pressing for London Globe Records. Bit odd that, as everything on the sleeves is still in French..... Just piano, bass, drums doing jazz versions of Bach 1963 double album. Great soundstage and separation. Groovy!
  11. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/south-bunbury/speakers/audiophile-speakers/1215541103 Some Whatmough 201's in WA.....
  12. That’s where my original Music Labs amp came from. It was my 1st proper stereo when I got my 1st proper job. I auditioned all sorts of stuff everywhere. I was glad to say that Aussie stuff, for the money at the time and on my budget, came out on top!
