Starting a specific thread for Vinyl Record spinning My plan is to go through my record collection one by one and post as I go with a nice photo Hope all record ( darksiders ) will follow my lead and post on this new Vinyl / Record spinning thread So to kick it off I will post one of the very first albums I purchased - and I had to order it Since then I never got over King Crimson - still a top 3 favourite band Artist - King Crimson Album - Young Persons Guide TT - Garrard 401 Stylus - Stanton 981 LZS Tonearm - Transfi Terminator Let the fun begin on the Darkside
  2. Hi All Are there any Project Primary E or Project Elemental users out there in Melbourne ? I have ressurected my original Pioneer A400X and Epos 11 speakers to start a second system during the ‘lockdown’. Using a Vincent Pho-8 phono stage The new turntable sits on an Ikea lack table, a Mission isoplat and addition 3mm EVA foam pads... the turntable is immune to foot traffic, i have a timber floor. The sound is very coherent and dynamic, and exceeded my expectation for a budget and well built tt. Derek

  5. Well I bought a new Goldring E3 today and I installed it as per the Manuel says, used a scale for tracking weight (2.0g) and a protractor for alignment. In the middle of the first album I decided to play the stylus broke and collapsed onto the record. Not sure what happened, if I did something or if it’s a faulty stylus. have you guys ever had a similar experience or know what might of happened? cheers
  6. Further information: less than 3 mths old. Best phono stage I have used in my journey by a mile!!! Photos:
  7. Further information: immaculate condition 20hrs use. Save on a brand new model. Photos:
  8. Further information: This is the latest version and one of the first in the country. It is less then 2 months old. One thing I have learnt is that it doesn’t matter how good your arm TT or cartridge is, if you’re phono stage isn’t up to the task you are wasting money and forever chopping and changing. This was already a great phono stage but this version has a much more natural and warm presentation. It bested my valve phono stages by a considerable amount. It has XLR out too! I am actually really reluctant to sell this out of all the items I listed. It can get the most out of ANY cartridge hooked up to it. I have all boxes etc. https://sonicpurity.com.au/store/phono-stages/rcm-sensor-2-mkii Photos:

  13. Hey all, I'm heading down to the Bowral/Mittagong/Moss Vale area for the long weekend and was wondering if anyone knew of any good places to look for vinyl?
  14. Further information: This Georg Solti / Vienna Philharmonic Wagner Ring performance/recording is still regarded by many as the best on record, and no subsequent reissue even gets close to equalling these spectacularly good limited edition pressings by Decca UK. Released in 1970 as a limited special edition. 22 records in 5 boxes enclosed in a uniquely designed outer slipcase. At the time it was the highest priced record set on the market and sold out soon after release! I recall "Mr Rowe Street" (Sydney's most iconic classical record store owner) pointing to the "last unsold copy in Australia" and the following week it was gone. The boxes are now 50 years old and inevitably the outer cover and box spines have sustained minor degradation over that time, but remain in beautiful condition overall. I've conservatively classed them as VG+. Everything else ranges from NM to MINT condition!!! Most of the vinyl has NEVER been played. Each box has full libretto in German and English along with detailed synopsis of each opera as well as technical recording details. The full set weighs just under 12 kg before packing it up protectively for shipping, so allow at least 13 kg shipping weight. Note that I have access to much better insured interstate shipping rates than Australia Post. For instance estimate for fast door-to-door delivery to inner Melbourne OR even inner Perth suburbs from Sydney, including insurance, would be under $30! There is a similar-condition set (maybe not quite as good) on eBay for UK£330 (about AU$600) plus shipping (+$200 to Australia) plus GST. PRICE IS NEGOTIABLE Additional information from Discogs Wagner's Der Ring Des Nibelungen 22 LP Decca Box Set Incredible 1970 UK TWENTY TWO stereo LP boxed set of the complete edition of Richard Wagner's four part opera, 'Der Ring des Nibelungen', also known as 'The Ring Cycle' featuring the four operas 'Das Rheingold','Die Walkure', 'Siegfried' and 'Gotterdammerung'. There is also a unique three record introduction to 'The Ring' set narrated by Deryck Cooke featuring excerpts from the four operas. Each opera is in its own separate wooden ended partition with full size libretto booklets containing synopsis & full transcription for the operas. The performance is THE classic version by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Georg Solti, a powerful orchestral drama, phenomenal performance and superb sound. The whole ensemble is enclosed in a very weighty carved wooden box with gilded front panel.

Includes liner notes by Bill Zehme. Digitally remastered by Lee Herschberg. Pressed in the Netherlands and sounds fantastic. For those whose favourite part of the legendary Sinatra/Count Basie LIVE AT THE SANDS album was Frank's lengthy comedic monologue, THE RAT PACK: LIVE AT THE SANDS will arrive like manna from hipster's heaven. The disc features an entire performance by the storied "rat pack" of the Chairman and his musical pals Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr., but most of the show is given over to shtick and banter. Fittingly, Sinatra gets the most straight-ahead musical time with a brace of sterling ballads whose appearance should delight hardcore fans. Fortunately, the humorous barbs passed around the stage for the bulk of the performance are extremely sharp and funny (if politically incorrect in the extreme). Taken as a comedy album with some stirring musical moments, this disc is a gem for those who revere the Rat Pack, as they are captured at the peak of their powers and popularity, exuding hipness from every pore. LIVE AT THE SANDS is a bona fide cultural artefact documenting one generation's apex of cool. $35 Alan Parsons Project – I Robot – 2LP LEGACY 2013 release 35th Anniversary Edition - BRAND NEW & SEALED. MOV pressing in a gatefold sleeve. Including an 8 page booklet with rare photos & liner notes by Alan Parsons, and 14 bonus tracks on the second disc. Lovely double album package. $45 Led Zeppelin - How The West Was Won (SUPER DELUXE EDITION) – 4LP, 3CD, DVD and Book – 2018 EU pressed Box Set. BRAND NEW & SEALED. 'How The West Was Won' highlights the best performances from Led Zeppelin’s legendary concerts at the Los Angeles Forum and Long Beach Arena on June 25 and 27, 1972. Standouts include a 25-plus minute version of 'Dazed And Confused' and a 21-minute medley based around 'Whole Lotta Love'. The performances also capture the band introducing songs from its then-unreleased album 'Houses Of The Holy', which would be released nine months later. The Super Deluxe Boxed Set contains: Remastered audio on three CDs and four 180-gram vinyl LPs. DVD of the album in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and PCM Stereo, plus photo gallery. High-def download card of all stereo audio content at 96kHz/24 bit. A 52 page book filled with rare and previously unpublished photos of the band at each of the concert locations, plus memorabilia and ephemera. High-quality print of the original album cover, the first 30,000 of which will be individually numbered. Goes for anywhere from $230-$245 online anywhere you care to check. How's half that? $125 (ALL GONE) My latest YouTube videos are centred around spinning the unusual, coloured, MOFI, Half Speeds, Aussie, rare and just plain interesting vinyl of classic rock tracks including Meat Loaf, Pink Floyd, TOOL and the Blade Runner OST - have a look!

  21. Hi all, I am interested to hear if anyone has come across a DSP based active speaker that truly does a vinyl analog signal justice. I am not suggesting that I have an amazing set of ears but I can usually pick a lack of warmth and clinical objectivity from DSP filters especially those that are situated in active digital speakers. I really like listening to digital music through a digital speaker but there seems to be loss when trying to experience vinyl. Does anyone else have a similar experience? Can anyone recommend a digital speaker that does vinyl justice? thanks
  22. This review is somewhat of a hybrid review, being the component in question started off as somewhat of a mongrel, as many Linn LP12s are- an original afromasia plinth with the classic fluting, made in 1975. When I first purchased it, I took it to Audio Genesis in Sydney, where they performed budget priced upgrades to a late pre-cirkus bearing and subchassis, along with a new armboard and cable for the Basik arm which graced it. For some years I used a high output excel MC cartridge, and then an AT OC-9, and all was well, as I enjoyed purchasing second hand vinyl in the 1990s at cheap prices. After moving down south to Melbourne, it continued to make good music, with a steady diet of music from the 2000s, and the riches of the as yet sleepy used market. After having kids and spending lots of the past 15 years riding bikes, in the past 3-4 years, I decided that it was time to give the old girl a bit of love. I had purchased a few cartridges over the years, which given it was running through an ME-15 pre with an MC board, were all moving coil. AT PT-33 was a well priced favourite, which was superseded by an AT OC-9/mk3, and the Basik gave way to a Jelco 750D, with it's ability to swap head shells. The first big structural modification that I did to the table was a about 2 years ago, when I bought both a cirkus bearing and kore subchassis. This clearly made a difference to the sound of the deck, and the subchassis was much easier to set up, largely due to the fact the the old subchassis was slightly bent! The turntable retained a lot of the Linn rhythmic sound that keeps you listening, though the bottom end was tighter. I found that at times the detail in the high percussion was good, though it seemed to come and go a little. I also bought a trampolin 2 base, which I thought was an improvement on running it without a base, as I had done. Given I had given myself a little bit of a buzz before with the valhalla and its greater than mains voltage, and my kids were getting tall enough to reach it on the wall shelf, this was more a safety upgrade rather than a sound upgrade, though it definitely improved the looks of the deck. Another amateur structural mod that I did was to fit corner braces to the original plinth, and re-glue the corners, which did seem to tighten up the sound. This brings me to the subject of the current review... 2019 was a year of reduced spending and hard work, and towards the end of it, as a Christmas present, my partner suggested that I should think about getting one of those plinths that I had talked about after I saw them at the Hifi show. I had seen this sign with a few examples in the VAF room, and discussed them with Simon from VAF, who said that he and another bloke, Ben, were starting a business around turntable setup, maintenance and upgrades, and the plinths were part of that. No they weren't yet for sale, as they were needed to show some shops. I put thoughts of immediate purchases out of my mind, and thought about other things. Now that the opportunity came to purchase one, got into contact with Ben, through the website www.hifiguru.com.au . I checked out a few of the models they had on offer on the still pretty rudiimentary website, and really had my heart set on a red gum plinth with a fantastic wavy grain. Ben got back to me via email, and we messaged about what was available, and agreed that I would get the Red gum, along with a new Linn top plate. The cost of the plinth was about $1500, which is a little more than a stock Linn plinth, but much cheaper than importing a Woodsong plinth or Booplinth, which were crazy prices. It may seem a bit silly paying this much for the wood surround of a record player, but I reasoned that when I play a record, I listen, let my thoughts wander, and spend quite a lot of time looking at the turntable itself, so getting one that is just beautiful was not so silly. It took the better part of a month to go from agreeing to purchase to getting the plinth itself, due to christmas and holidays, and during that time, I took advantage of a sale at Tivoli hifi to pick up a lingo 4 at a good price. It just seemed that if I was going to update the plinth, the motor had to be done too. Come the end of January, and it was all coming together. I met Ben to pick up the plinth, and despite his offer to build up the player as part of the purchase, I really wanted to do it myself. The plinth looked even better in the flesh than I remembered, and certainly than in photos. The top plate was well set and the bolts were vertical. It was time to build. I had borrowed a set up jig and some tools, which make the whole shebang much easier. First up was removing the subplatter, bearing and tonearm from the old table, which was no problem at all. Then was the process of fitting the Lingo 4 into the new plinth, along with the aforementioned bits. All went fairly well, with no issues. Soon I had a table which was fully stocked with parts, just needing tuning. If any of you have set up the suspension of an LP12, it is not magic, but it does require a bit of futzing around after you have set the platter to level, at about the height of the plinth edge. After the requisite twisting of the spring grommets, and bouncing of the platter, I had achieved a good bounce with no side to side movement. After that I attached and dressed the tonearm cable, which took a little longer, with a bit more twisting and bouncing for good measure. It was ready for the base to be reinstalled (a tight fit) and to be placed on the wall shelf (essential for any turntable in a house with floorboards, in my opinion). The finished product looks fantastic- a definite step up from the old girl who has travelled so far with me. It sounds fantastic, retaining that rhythmic coherence that LP12's are famous for, but what the Plinth/Lingo 4 add is a little more air in the upper frequencies- cymbals sound a bit more like they should, with less tizz, and a bit more separation of instruments. The biggest change to my ears has been the increased definition of bass guitar, bass drum, and the bottom end in general. It comes across as stronger, but without the kind of amiable boominess that the older versions of the deck have had. I have found that the change has been for the better with all the styles of music that I play, from rock/pop/metal, to jazz and classical. Overall this renovation of my LP12 has been just what I wanted- bringing a bit more audiophile into the musical fun of the original, without losing any of it. For the moment I am just enjoying it, currently listening regularly, with no thoughts of what comes next. Justin

  24. Hey Guys. I'm interested in which records you listen to with the most regularity, especially all you well known members, but encouraging newcomers who may become well known in time Even as I post regularly, I don't post everything I listen to and over time our more often played choices may not be apparent. Feel free to elaborate on your choices to your hearts content, we all have a story when it comes to our favourite records and bands. Some of you know I like to ramble on a bit sometimes. Keeping it exclusively vinyl with different threads for other formats. Maybe two lists each with three albums... 1. Top 3 giving you the most delight at present. 2. Top 3 on highest rotation in collection. I've been buying some new vinyl recently. When I was young all records sounded bloody unreal. We had a nice Pioneer stereo and it rocked. When my brother and I moved into a flat, he had a very nice system too. After joining this forum around 3 years ago, my ears have certainly become a lot more critical and quite a few of my records sound pretty ordinary, compared with others that are commonly accepted as great sounding records i.e. Roxy Music's 'Avalon'. I now have some awesome sounding vinyl, but I'm looking for better versions of some of my favourite albums. The prime example is Black Sabbath's 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath'. I have had two, second hand, Aust. pressings that were in fair condition, and currently the Earmark reissue which is just woeful. One of my top three albums and I don't listen to vinyl - shame on me! I'm on the hunt for the Rhino Records reissue. Right now I listen to great sounding records. My top 3 spinners right now are - 1. Muse 'Origin of Symmetry' The only Muse album I have on vinyl, picked up at JB HiFi soon after release. I have most of their CD's and a couple of DVD's, saw them at Riverstage in Brisbane around 2009(?) Great sounding record and Muse in strong form. 2. The Angels 'Two Minute Warning' I've only had this about two weeks but it's been getting a workout. The sound is as I remember from an old friend's copy - excellent. The band I have seen the most in my life. This album was released as I was finishing year 12 and beginning to go to licenced gigs. Live music and Aussie pub rock were in fine form. I've always been happy with the CD, but recently added to my essential vinyl supply. 3. Alkaloid 'Liquid Anatomy' Progressive, Technical Death Metal from Germany. You'll see from my next top 3 list that Metal is normally my thing. My first gig was Maiden's 'The Beast on the Road'. I listen to many styles of music but I always return to Metal. Very impressed with the all round quality of this release. My Top 3 records ever in rotation are... 1. KISS 'Dynasty' The first record I ever bought myself. I have a lovely U.S. promo copy that sounds awesome. My original Aussie copy was played to death. It's No.1 on the list because it was the first. I've never really liked 'I was Made for Lovin' You' & 'Sure Know Something', but the rest of the album rocks. For me it is the sound of New York from that time, I have strong, positive emotional connections to the record itself and the music. 2. Black Sabbath 'Mob Rules' When I first got back into records around three years ago, this was the first album I replaced, with a second NM Aussie pressing. I was in year 8 when this was released, it copped a flogging on our stereo and I especially liked it through the headphones. Another record that transports me back every time it spins. It's always a toss up between this and 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath', and as I don't currently listen to that on vinyl it can't be listed. 3. Led Zeppelin 'IV' I have had three Aussie pressings and the Jimmy Page remaster. Have always loved this classic record and it transports me to a magical, medieval world. There are no rules - Enjoy -
