  1. would you believe I come across this in Bunnings (that very afternoon i read thru this thread, just saw the pic again in phone and it reminded me to post) worth it just for the experiement at <$7. ( i didn't get one so can;t comment) https://www.bunnings.com.au/northcote-pottery-30cm-pot-accessory-cork-mat_p0138556
  2. @VAF i must have contributed to that last flurry of demand. And often when enjoying the listening I would find myself revisiting the webpage for the x63s looking through the specs and technologies. understandably the page has now been retired. However am I able to get a cut of this page - a pdf print to file or a one-off link to an isolated URL, so I can keep a local cut of the details on hand? Cheers!
  3. 1-series cross generational match off in the damp. hello xDrive... https://www.bmwblog.com/2020/03/17/video-bmw-m135i-drag-races-older-bmw-m140i/
  4. hello (couldn't figure which forum was best for this question...) we're undertaking a typical suburban 2 story home build. if i'm looking at running cat6 into most rooms and at times even 2x cable runs, do i still need a separate coaxial based 'network' just for FTA TV? or like telephony can this now be readily distributed on the data network? i.e. coaxial (or whatever) from the antenna to the data cabinet (and whatever piece of middle ware) then via a tv specific cat6 run straight into a network enabled smart TV. and you get the same experience on the TV of flicking thru channels trying to avoid ads, etc., plus its hard wired for streaming. on one hand it seems a bit redundant to need 2 'digital' networks. especially when we don't watch all that much TV and wont have them in bedrooms. I'm worried I'd be putting coaxial in for the next occupants and by then it will be obsolete. I see you can use coaxial within your LAN if each end can handle it but it seems this is a more a fall back to use existing cable vs doing it within a new build.
  5. Pre-order from Bandcamp Mr Experience, Limited Edition 12" Vinyl (Fruit Punch) by Donny Benet
  6. no i was just chewing time in the shop - too many other things I could buy but shouldn't i thought slippage wasn't a concern. is it too tight, or loose? did it get lubed up accidentally? yeah if that kept happening I'd think about doing the same

  8. this from Spotify Black Uhuru The Dub Factor
  9. i came across some crates of records in an old bricka-brack shop that is literally a tin shed with the back half on stilts extending out into SE Qld's Morton bay. I think it was $10 for 5, olden jazz and classical etc. albums from the 60's, covers a little worn and who knows how long they had been there. the items I got were in branded inner-sleeves so must have been loved at some point and they looked clean enough. I figured they's be rough with an Amazon jungle's worth of mould and mildew growing in the grooves, plus salt hazing etc. so I didn't have high expectations they're all fine, so you can't be keeping them any worse than these were kept! this one gets regular rotation : Frank Chacksfield And His Orchestra* - Film Festival
  10. moving on but returning closer to the roots of Jazz. although a recent re-issue this one they kept mono despite stereo release being out there
  11. wow some really good reading archived here and expands beyond just talking mats. Belonging to the Hitachi club i'll be digging through to pick out some pearls o' wisdom. i replaced the stock ringed rubber mat with cork and on top I've a fancy (in my books anyway) Origin Live mat. under all this directly on the aluminium platter I played with a very thin layer of silicon (cut it from a $3 dog's bowl matt I saw in the Reject shop), I've been happy enough to leave it in the mix. @rantan did you replace the tonearm on your unit?
  12. sound sounding plan I've got the GS Gram Amp 2 SE, acquired the PSU1 about 6 months ago, and recently moved up thru the Ortofon 2M range to the Bronze after running a blue stylus in a silver body for about a year and a half
  13. earlier: Mystery Jets - Curve Of The Earth now: Tame Impala - Currents
  14. came today, is on second end to end spin David Gray - White Ladder (IHT Records - IHTLP1910) To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of White Ladder.
  15. Item: Garrott Bros OptimS2 Location: Brisbane CBD Price: $280 (plus postage) Item Condition: used (recently inspected) Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Here we have the combo of the highly regarded Australian Garrot Bros cartridge with a Shibata stylus. Recently inspected and deemed "excellent condition". I picked this up from SNA last year. I've rotated it in and out of my rig but never for long. I found it had an extremely low noise floor, very refined with nice top end detail and good with difficult female vocals. However I'm not sure it made for a good fit with my system as I found myself enjoying my other carts more. I can't adjust VTA which may have benefited from some tweaks. I had Decibel HiFi look at it to ensure it was otherwise in good condition. Specs: https://garrottbrothers.com/sites/default/files/garrottoptim.pdf Favourable review http://stereotimes.com/cart081402.shtml (Cart and stylus FS only, headshell etc. not included) Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  16. from JB also, pre-ordered a few months back, came today, 20yr in the making, sounding pretty good on first spin
  17. can you thro in that 80s floor rug? it would really tie any room together
  18. timing just not right otherwise would seriously consider this ( or another of the units you've done) GLWTS
  19. certainly not a New York second, the Yank concept of time is whack too, even the 92nd Oscars went way more than the minute and a half they were touted as
  20. Spotify just informed me of this fresh 2020 LP release. getting into it now. so smooth and well produced, simple but nicely polished. bass riding shotgun up the front, lazy guitar funk wondering around out the back
