  1. belated post - last week picked up that bronzed pack from the classifieds here: - Ortofon 2M Bronze cart with practically new stylus mounted and set in the matching Ortofon bronze headshell - Spare Bronze stylus with 150hrs on it So far just did a one for one swap of the 2M Blue stylus I had running for the loose Bronze stylus. Me likely. hearing much more detail especially percussion, string plucks and top end sparkle.
  2. saw this bad boy in the shop yesterday. I don't usually dig Cannondale and their left field approach but this looked potent plus lights and bumper protection integrated into the frame. at $2.7k tho... including a few pedestrian components like breaks and BB https://www.cannondale.com/en-au/bikes/active/urban/bad-boy/bad-boy-1?sku=c33100m10sm
  3. on my daily commute into the CBD I pref to share the road with traffic vs the river side walkways which are just too random. road traffic rarely gets above 40 km/h (even when the limit is set at 60) and cars etc. yes you have to be confident and balance assertiveness and courtesy but on the whole obey rules and are more predictable than e-scooters, pedestrians with headphones, dogs, tourists and walking clubs. plus there's johnny come lycra-clad lately who thinks the congested paths are his personal raceway
  4. can you expand further on what you mean by "suit" it well? just so we can focus discussion
  5. this has been getting a fair amount of rotation of late Olympia (11) - Flamingo LP, Album, Ltd, Mag EMI 7746238 2019 Australia
  6. i think there's a wide perception those scratches and pops etc. is normal, its what vinyl all is about - we suffer for our art. they don't realize that even a half descent budget set-up with a clean disk will be free from that "lovely warm fuzz with the clicks and pops that lets you know you're listening to vinyl"
  7. hello and welcome hope you enjoy yourself see you around
  8. cheers, will add to the reading list I'm reading that book "how music works" by David Bryne of Talking Heads. he makes mention of recording there. I was also reading about the recording of Brother's in Arms also at some Caribbean island - but its seems not specifically at Compass Pint for that album. seems tropical islands were all the vogue for recording at that time
  9. The Legendary Flower Punk ‎– Zen Variations everything but vocals - funky progressive psychedelic with a twist of jazz fusion (they're a Russian experimental group...)
  10. Not that I've done much listening to Grace Jones but they say the production on these records is really something how are you finding this release? Back to Black can be hit and miss I've found.
  11. lovely easy going yet dark at times pop, driven by nice clean guitars, bass and piano/synth edit : this is a cover of the whole Cure album
  12. farout Bob, that sounds real bad and no doubt put several things into a new perspective for Christmas
  13. one of my fav late night spins (good test of system synergy also) MCA Records ‎– MCA-37072, 1981 (USA)
  14. earlier just getting towards the end of this
  15. cheers have added to the listen list don't mind me some Dark/Synth Wave
  16. welcome to the light my fav album of their is Aenima, tho for many its Lateralus
  17. another top 2019 release getting good rotation on my table
  18. ^^ really liked Astronaut so got the album just on that track alone it get a weekly spin. mines a bit noisy in places - particularly thru the transition into said Astronaut. C/D is cleaner than A/B
