  1. Very much recommend using the table on this page to calculate the best dimensions sorbothane to buy. Much better for components that aren't super heavy than the industrial Bunnings stuff in my experience https://www.qtasystems.co.uk/articles/how-to-use-sorbothane-hemispheres.htm
  2. Thanks everyone, super helpful stuff. I really didn't know much about what options were out there at all so been great to learn a bit. I think as it stands i'm looking for something for $200 or so that I can give a spin without being too committed or throwing the balance of my system out. Would rather not spend $500+ on a DAC when I could use that to upgrade my amp. Basically trying to recreate what I did with the Project Tube Box. It may be that such a product/pricepoint isn't out there though. The AMC currently listed in the classifieds would be a great shout but I kn
  3. Thanks, yeah feels like it could be fun at least I did see the AMC, looks great but I need something with a much smaller footprint sadly, probably something like Tube Box sized
  4. Been really enjoying the sound I'm getting from my tube phono preamp (Project Tube Box DS), having previously been using the Phono input on my Marantz 1030, and I'm now thinking I wouldn't mind seeing if I can do something similar with my streaming setup. Currently I just run my humble Sonos Connect into my Marantz. Any recommendations or words of warning for putting an external tube DAC in between them? Or maybe just a tube buffer? Thanks Marcus

  6. Thanks Bill, I'm already the proud owner of a set of your RCA cables which I love very much. I'll have a look at the Canare cable, thanks for the tip M
  7. Item: Speaker cable (approx 7 metres needed) Price Range: 30-50 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking for 5-10 metres of speaker cable to set up a new system, doesn't need to be anything high-end at all but nice to get something a little better than Bunnings etc if it;s out there.

  8. Very nice! Similar to mine by the looks of it. @Special K has a spare of Ella and Louis too, I'll be hanging on to mine though sorry! All from this series: https://www.discogs.com/label/956425-Jazz-At-3313-rpm Quality is genuinely excellent and it looks like you can pick them up cheap enough now that people have been picking up copies through sales like these .

  10. Item: Price Range: $50-$100 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Dont need anything fancy at all, Im just getting my friend set up with his first system and could do with a cheap pair of active speakers (small bookshelfs ideally) as placeholders while they shop around for something special. Location Collingwood and Flemington, happy to collect or arrange postage. Thanks, M Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).

  12. Item: Inner sleeves Price Range: Free Item Condition: Used Extra Info I bought a load of fancy inner sleeves over lockdown and have this stack of the previous ones if anyone needs them. A real mix of "vintage", nearly new, paper, plastic, square and half moon ones. We'll over 100 there in total. All in perfectly adequate condition, some are basically brand new. The knackered ones went in the recycling but I thought I'd check if anyone wanted some/all of these before they went the same way. Feel free to come pick out the ones you want. Pick up in Collin
  13. I picked these up a month or so ago when it was 10 records for $78 shipped (seems the be the same value as this one) and it's the real deal. All excess stock from the Jazz 33 1/3 collectors series. Properly licensed by DeAgostini and genuinely excellent quality pressings. I would recommend I first read about it here: https://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/zavvi-best-of-jazz-starter-kit-all-time-classics-albums-set-of-10-mystery-vinyl-lp.990763/page-3
  14. True true, may not have been a full recap. Might hav ebeen just replacing a few troublemakers!
  15. I did but more because it had a few small problems when I got it, a bit of buzzes and hums etc. that were all sorted. It wasn't like the soundstage improved or the sound sitself changed, ust that it ran really smoothly and much more quietly. If I recall correctly it needed some resoldering as well as the recap maybe, would have been around $100 for the work maybe?
