  1. Currently Spinning

    Interpol: self titled 45rpm followed up by some... Depeche Mode Violator then Radiohead: A moon shaped pool
  2. Rega RP8 Turntable any comments ?

    Oh yeah! I’d do both if one came along at the right price.
  3. Rega RP8 Turntable any comments ?

    oh yeah, that's the other thing...for the OP....the RP8 surely must be next in line for a revision (Rega having done the Planar 1,2,3 in 2016 and the 6 in 2017)....so if you buy one new resale value could be a concern....but that's ONLY if you sell! She could be good enough for life
  4. Rega RP8 Turntable any comments ?

    They are a far bit of coin RRP in Australia I noted, I had a friend visiting the UK and they were around $2000 aud (after with VAT returned) and then you'd have to pay GST when bringing it in. We did have one sell fro $2300 with the Apheta cart a few months back.
  5. Rega RP8 Turntable any comments ?

    The new Planar 6 even, with all it's upgrades over the P6 reading the reviews you wonder how close to RP8 performance it is. For example....it's included PSU is the newer version than the RP8 and uses technology from the RP10.
  6. FS: Burial + Four Tet - Nova (12")

    @Teksiis 2 of your favorites?
  7. Thank you @georgehifi and @Sirmorebeer. i might borrow a power and see what happens! @maxheadroom great! I’ll PM you, was planning on having a listening session with @Teksiis when our latest record order comes through. Bring some cool tracks too!
  8. @georgehifi Hi George, looking at the graph and the Rega Elex-R stats I've posted above....and I sit 2.5m and low/moderate volumes of Alternative/rock/electronic do you see any issues? Thank you
  9. Rega RP8 Turntable any comments ?

    nice ebay find...local pick up only!
  10. @Sirmorebeer OK, so I look at the solid line and the ohms are on the left. so she drops down to 4.5ohms, so then what do I do with the dotted line and how do I work out if the amp can do this...she can do 113w? Thank you for your assistance 72.5W 8Ω both channels driven - Design centre rating 90W 6Ω both channels driven - Rega speaker impedance rating 113W 4Ω both channels driven
  11. no showdown mate, he wins everytime!!!! The only time it's been a draw was when he bought something off me!
  12. You sir, are the bane of my existence, everytime I go to buy something....Spider27 has beaten me too it!!!! Great score mate, enjoy!
  13. Listened to it last night and pleased with the sound quality. I have the self titled, El Pinto and have ordered Our Love To Admire last week. Will probably wait for Antics to be reissued at some point - can’t locate any decently priced now it’s out of print. the piercing guitars on Bright lights were fantastic on a proper system (instead of the computer)
  14. definitely explained that I don't listen at loud volumes, @Teksiis would you agree, moderate (or low?). so no mention of volume has been made by all 3 of these salespeople. They look at some frequency graph and then note that the drivers drop down into 3ohms in the spectrum....no idea where the chart is etc. perhaps I go back into the store, ask to see the chart and have it explained to me. Speaker data is available at: https://www.stereophile.com/content/spendor-d7-loudspeaker-measurements But I have no idea what I'm looking at there!
  15. Interpol: Turn on the Bright Lights (are Matador OK at production, haven't had great success with some US pressings) Cat Power: The Greatest (my favorite female singer, haunting!) Primal Scream: If they move....Kill em (My Bloody valentine/Kevin Shields) 7" - accidentally purchased it thinking it was the 12". This will be a nice little listening session on Saturday!!!!
