  1. Hi J-B welcome, hope you enjoy getting involved living sound, helpful chaps, its not a big store but they have some choice gear out i went way out to Todd's HiFi 15 odd km SE from cbd, they were doing a lot of refurbishing at the time setting up several listening rooms etc, they don't do anything top end flashy or exotic Videopro newstead have a new location although I've not gone into it, previously hifi was was tucked up the back so hopefully they have more space now not been into Timira, looks good, didn't know it was tucked away in there i drive past all the time, will have to pop in
  2. hello, welcome to SNA, hope you enjoy getting involved
  3. this was never going to last long unsold
  4. I did a similar project with a late 70's TT acquired from father in law initially I put new new generic stylus on the cartridge which was an early AT VM unit. the minor evolution of these VM carts over time means there was plenty of backward compatible options. even fancy Shibata ones. You may find this is the case with the yours - even if it only serves as a back up. Additionally, a bit deep google research revealed some of the tweaks and upgrades people did back in the day for my particular TT, plus I learn about the standard stuff with set up and environment to get the most out of a TT. I got a Rega Fono Mini before grabbing a Graham Slee gram amp 2 SE (2nd hand on SNA). Its a crowded space in the sub $400 range for pre-amps, where an extra $100-200 may only get you a sideways step. I went with the GS as its MM only and I felt I was paying for unnecessary features with MM+MC alternatives. Rega was good, the GS "sweeter" with no loss of punch and rhythm. My 2c would be look at new stylus if your cart has good pedigree

  10. thanks for input chaps, i spent a bit of time last week trying to get around the whole how power and matching amp n speakers.... then there's the marketing hype when they list the specs. figured at some point i'd just put it to the collective for thoughts I'm running an Onkyo tx-8150 http://www.eu.onkyo.com/downloads/2/8/7/0/8/ONKYO_TX-8150_datasheet_EN.pdf https://www.whathifi.com/onkyo/tx-8150/review GENERAL SPECIFICATIONS (on web and retail sites) Power Output: 135 W/Ch (6 Ohms, 1 kHz, 1%, 1 Channel Driven, IEC); 140 W/Ch (6 Ohms, 1 kHz, 2 Channels Driven, JEITA) but from deep in pdf specs - Dynamic Power 190 W (3 Ω) 170 W (4 Ω) 110 W (8 Ω) THD+N (Total Harmonic Distortion + Noise) 0.08% (20 Hz–20 kHz, Half Power) ** what exactly is half power? a few blog type reviews state RMS 55W per ch, and I'd hope that their "high current" WRAT tech delivers
  11. I'm hoping to get a set of X63s late this year / early next year, will have hands full buying house first. dedicated listening area mandatory the spec's state for power "up to 200W," any idea of the lower range? my current amp cam comfortably do 50-60W into 2 channels. they have good efficiency so hoping it will be right
