  1. I have my mother’s Aussie mono (and some stereo) Peter, Paul and Mary records. Really good quality. Will perhaps give a few Aussie jazz monos a go.
  2. Possibly buying... the amp after the rebuild is beyond what anyone Could have hoped, speakers are going for a full refurb - I just need a quality, but not over the top, vinyl source (node2 as digital for streaming and FLAC playback).
  3. I have a modest vintage setup - - Luxman L-30 (recently fully rebuilt) - Celef Mini Pro HE about to be rebuilt. is this good value for $1000?: Pro Ject RPM 5 Turntable with Upgraded Tonearm and Dynavector DV-20XH Cartridge. Condition is Used. Sent with Australia Post Standard. This is a 2007 version of the RPM 5, not the current version. It has performed extraordinarily well for me over 13 years. The turntable has been upgraded by fitting it with a Pro Ject 9CC Evolution carbon tonearm fitted with a Dynavector DV-20XH high output moving coil cartridge. The turntable can be connected to a "regular" MM Phono Preamp due to the high output of the cartridge. I will disassemble the turntable and pack it into the original box. It will also come with all of the original accessories as well as the original tonearm in a separate box, the cartridge's original box which includes the frequency response chart for this specific cartridge, the instruction book and a Pro Ject Speed Box Power Supply. There is no dust cover for the turntable but there are a number of alternatives readily available online. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
  4. I've a fondness in general for mono from that era, but it's nice having a great mix of both formats when they're an album of that caliber - hopefully I spent my budget wisely!
  5. He might be alluding to the Steve Hoffman convo - look for Steve's comments over the first 5 pages-ish: https://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/at-what-point-does-a-system-provide-the-benefit-of-a-45rpm-over-33rpm-vinyl-record.908494/page-2 Either way it's a good thread to read; the dude knows his analogue mastering.
  6. Just paid for mine - $599 for the digital edition. Available at Harvey’s and JB.
  7. I just had a Shipito take just over 3 weeks from postage at the sender’s end to scanning in in Sydney. From what I could see in the tracking, the delay was in the US domestic system. I have another one that’s been sitting at it’s first scan for nearly 2 weeks.
  8. My first of 3 copies of this (1 is digital) - can’t wait to spin it tomorrow night! https://www.analogplanet.com/content/miles-davis-kind-blue-monophonic-reissue-sonylegacy-analog-planet-exclusive
  9. Well - I have 3 versions incoming: - Sony 2013 mono (as per Analog Planet) - should be here tomorrow - Classic Records 33rpm - MFSL SACD I looked around the mofi 45rpm, but this album will lend itself to chilling with wine/beer, and I get the MoFi mix on the SACD.
