    Stonking bargain. The build quality on AM gear is astonishing....

    WTB: CD Player Found thanks

    I often use iPhone>dragonfly red USB DAC (can use the Apple connector that allows us to stay plugged in and charge at same time)>amp. Can set this up with any old phone with the smaller charge style, and together with DAC could get in for less than maybe $250? I get better Sou d with this streaming Spotify than I get playing discs on my Denon CD player. in my mind, when talking beers, darts, etc, the convenience of choosing anything you want, any time, is more attractive! Even better, permanently leave an older iPad for easier use!

    Pardon my impertinence, but wouldn’t cd’s be annoying in a shed? I’ll be doing the same (once I get round to building my shed!) and I reckon just an old iPhone>USB dac>amp running Spotify..... or are you talkin’ proper MAN CAVE with a listening room, games room, cellar, workshop, artist colony.......

    What's with listed prices of HFi from Japan?

    Yeah but the bit I don’t get is that it’s a different world now, what with the interwebs and such. I’m like most - if you’re after something, you do some research, hopefully find it locally, but either way just get from wherever if the price + postage is right. That’s why I started the thread - why, if in Japan, would you not just buy stuff from elsewhere, or are there killer tarrifs, postage, or something else I’m not understanding?

    I ended up ordering a box of various sizes off eBay to ensure I don’t run into this again. Just of course make sure they’re non magnetic. I went for titanium as scored cheap and I only use mc carts. I’m told on some setups the plastic screws can be helpful.

    I just had this issue, and my lovely local record shop (in Thornbury, so I have 564738 of them) gave me some gratis. Big ups to Thornbury Rocords......

    Interesting. So do you feel there’s a bit of the ‘ol, “paid X thousands for it in the boom times, and this is a high spec bit of gear, thus surely it’s still worth Xish.” I can understand that, however sadly many can’t accept the natural laws of depreciation. Only the very best of the most collectible stuff (hiring or otherwise) will ever be exempt from this.....

    Yeah fair enough. Are you talking a ‘56, or just a Herman Miller from any year?

    Man. I hope your pockets are deep! Good luck.....
  13. Gotcha. Thanks re power board. As for the Viborg, I’ll never trust it......
  14. Silly question, but I assume one can run a powerboard(s) off this to maximise its use? Also, will that Viborg try to assimilate my family? Is resistance futile?
