  1. I seemed to have sparked an interesting debate here. Makes me wonder - what percentage of high end audio did we used to get out here during the "golden era" (73-83)? Are many audiophiles running step-down transformers so they can use a broader range of gear? Might start another thread: "hands up if you use a step down?"
  2. Thanks to everyone for your replies/advice. I ended up backing out of the purchase. Seemed irrational to spend money on a quality unit and then possibly compromise it. The seller was very accomodating, and the amp is for sale again if anybody is not bothered by the transformer palava. Seemed a good price for the unit: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/273933589479?ViewItem=&item=273933589479
  3. Just bought a Kenwood KA-8100. Apparently it's a USA 120v model and comes with a transformer. But what rating should this transformer be? Having a glance at Jaycar there seems to be a range. Starting to wonder if I just got a bargain, because I'm going to need to shell out a bunch for the transformer. In the product manual it says: "Power consumption......600watts at full power" So what do I need?

Neil Young - Time Fades Away 1973 UK pressing VG vinyl - nothing deep, just lots of hairlines. Cover is seperating on one side and generally a little rough. Great starter copy.

Herbie Hancock - Man-Child 1975 Australia first Pressing Funk fusion classic featuring Wayne Shorter, Bernie Maupin and Stevie Wonder on Harmonica(!) Cover in good shape, vinyl scratchy but music gets above surface noise 90% of time. Great starter copy. Pressing details: https://www.discogs.com/Herbie-Hancock-Man-Child/release/4935315 Pick up only in St Kilda. If no local interest after 2 weeks I will consider posting.... PM me, Cheers, Dan Pictures:
  6. Judging by the feedback and good wishes, I'm on a winner here! Picking her up at the end of the week. Currently running a Kenwood KA - 4006. The Akai will get me another 30w of thrust, and of course...Backlit VU Meters!! It'll be recieving the odd bit of streaming/podcasts, but mostly my ever growing collection of AAA vinyl.
  7. Actually, let's ad Stevie Wonder - Innervisions and Getz/Gilberto to my list too.
