  1. Absolute bargain here. I have 2 sets of Adelaide speakers and love them. Someone is going to be very happy with these. GLWTS.
  2. Kids in the Kitchen - Shine One of the very first albums I bought when it first came out way back in 1985.
  3. Just finished the weekend off ploughing through AccaDacca box sets 1 & 2. Ready to tame it down now, lol.
  4. I'm on the Mornington peninsula Dennis if you would like a listen. I have two pairs of adelaide speakers. PM me if you are interested.
  5. Here's a pic of Edwards work. These are finished in Blackwood veneer.
  6. Just to throw another local option in the mix, have you looked at Ascension Speakers by Adelaide Speakers. Edward is a nice guy to deal with and will customise to suit your requirements. He made some custom TL speakers for me to suit my specific room and needs. Lovely speakers and exceptional pricing.
  7. Yes this looks very similar although the one I salvaged had been built into a window mantle/cabinet. Very agricultural with a push button that changed the speed via a lever. I guess if it was all you could afford back in the day then it served it's purpose. Thanks all for your input, I knew I could rely on you.
  8. "I'm also confused, you say the turntable doesn't have any identifying marks but I can see a Rega logo in the pics - is this another turntable in the photo?" Sorry audiofeline, yes I am now running the mat on my Rega which is what the photo is of. The mechanism is exactly like the one you linked so thank you very much for your research. It would appear that they were made fairly cheaply based on the construction and the very light weight platter which just sits on a narrow pin. Maybe the best thing about it was the mat which seems to work fine. Thanks again for the info.
  9. Thanks guys. That's certainly the animal. Do we know what JH stood for? I kept the motor assembly and platter from it but it had no tonearm. It will most likely sit in the shed just in case I need it LOL. Yes I don't use the dustbug it just sits there for nostalgic purposes.
  10. Hi all, just trying to tap into the brains trust on here to see if someone can identify a platter mat I recently acquired whilst doing demolition works in a house. It has the markings JH (I am assuming is the manufacturer) and antistatic on it. It is quite a heavy rubber and has raised spongey knobs on it that the record obviously sits on. It seems to work and sound OK and is certainly a step up from those horrible record sticking Rega felt mats and a homemade cork mat which also sticks to records. I am using it on a Rega P25 and had to adjust the VTA but that was easy enough using an origin live VTA ring. The turntable that it came off had no identifying marks on it as to manufacturer so I am hoping someone here has seen one before. Thanks in advance.
  11. Item: Garrard Model 1025 Auto Change Turntable Location: Mornington Peninsula Vic Price: FREE Item Condition: Parts or repair Reason for selling: Deceased Estate Pickup Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This unit was at my father inlaws place and I had visions of reinvigorating it into a new base. I hooked it up to power this afternoon to test it all out only to find that it won't run up to speed. It is approx. 10 rpm out on all speeds. I did all the usual things and lubricated all the necessary parts but nothing helped. I'm not sure if it's the drive wheel causing the issue or the motor. I took off the drive wheel and cleaned up the shaft and lubricated it but it still seems to be the probable cause of the low speeds. Everything else is working fine including the auto change mechanism. Rather than throw it in the dump I'd prefer to see it go to someone who may be able to part it out or get it going to it's former glory. I'm not prepared to spend any money on it so it needs to go. I'll give it a week or so and if there is no interest then I guess it's off to landfill. The finger lift is broken but all else is good. Happy to answer any questions. Goes with the operators manual. Pickup only as it would probably not be economically viable to post it. Thanks for looking. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  12. These 2 for me please Jon if still available. COLD CHISEL - Twentieth Century - 2017 AUS reissue new vinyl pressing. NM/NM Sealed and new. Vinyl album in single cover. $38 $35 $33 $30 (last copy and last discount, take it now or never) JOE HENRY - Shuffletown - 2018 new SINGLE vinyl pressing. SEALED and NM/NM. First time on vinyl.The original 1990 release from the American singer-songwriter. Joe Henry is a welcome guest in the country folk scene. His all-acoustic third album Shuffletown is a laid-back album with a lot of slow and timeless songs. The interesting part is the instrumentation, with stand-up bass, vibraphone and accordion, among others. The album is produced by T-Bone Burnett and was recorded over four days. It's one of the many masterpieces Joe recorded, and one with a warm tone and some incredible lyrics. $40 $38 $35 $32 (last discount, take it now or never)
  13. Item: Dynavox Tube Preamp TPR-43 Location: Mornington Peninsula Vic Price: $200 + postage Item Condition: used but in excellent condition Reason for selling: Not required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this unit as a stop gap but in the time it took to get here from Germany I had already bought something else. I've had it sitting in the shed since April 2017. Took it out the other day to make sure it actually works and it's all good. It has a built in phono stage for mm and mc. mm is 40db gain / 47 Kohm, mc is 60db gain / 100 Kohm. I bought it from Art of Sound in Germany. It would need a power cable as the one supplied is a European plug. All of the instructions are in German but other than that it works fine. I don't really know a lot about it and there isn't much on the net about them but it's cheap and would be great in a second system. I have had this running in my shed system for a couple of months and it sounds quite good. The build quality leaves a bit to be desired as far as the feel of the dials goes but functionally it is all good. Back story is I got it from Germany and it turned out to be faulty as the volume was extremely low. I sent it back, it came back and it works fine. It would be lucky to have done 20hrs. I have simplified my shed system as I was using this into a Sherwood AVR (also for sale) and just had too many components. If you have any queries I'll be happy to try and answer them. Thanks for looking. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  14. Item: Sherwood AVR RD6513 Location: Mornington Peninsula Vic Price: $100 + postage Item Condition: Used but in excellent condition Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Had this unit in a holiday place and have sold that and then it lived in it's box for about 4 years and then got relegated to shed duties. Seemed a waste to use it there so bought a stereo amp to simplify the shed system. I would hazard a guess to say that this has done no more than 200 hrs total use. It has the remote, original box and manual. It does not have the optional bluetooth dongle or the set up mic. All works perfectly. Can ship at buyers cost but would prefer local cash pickup. Thanks for looking. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  15. I haven't got a lot of Japanese pressings but the ones I have are all excellent, so I guess that puts me in the love camp.😍
