For years I’ve been reading about people scoring bargain basement deals through the used goods marketplaces in various forums. I read most of the post purchase comments to these posts, and there are q

I just picked up a new Luxman PD171A with a Ortofon PWti cartridge    

Nothing more than an indulgence purely for the aesthetics. Soulines U-Base to compliment the Kubrick DCX.   

Couldn’t resist some NOS that I came upon at Decibel HiFi recently, arrived yesterday and will install when some full fine thread zinc plated bolts and nuts arrive from interstate to improve my jury rigged counterweight:

 

Garrott Brothers P-77 Cartridge

 

My Acos-Lustre tonearm has height adjustment so I should be able to get the tonearm with the angle recommended for the cartridge and replace my Garrott Brothers K1 which I have really enjoyed.

Just received the Ortofon Anniversary book that I believe was advertised as discounted in the same email from them. Look forward to having a flick through.

Abbas Audio RIAA Tube Preamp..... The same circuit as the SW1X LPU II though very different build utilizing high quality vintage parts and wire.

 

I know I say it a lot, though it should be end game for me.  ;)

Elvis Costello 'My Aim is True'. Japanese pressing purchased from Discogs. Amazingly the vinyl is pristine and accurately graded. I am still recovering from the shock.

Does this Dynaudio clock count (after all, it is analogue!)

We've had this for some time. Only a few were ever made and given to core dealers around the world.

UK 1st Pressings of Ziggy Stardust and Synchronicity

2 Favourite albums that I've been looking for decent copies of.

Definitely better than the newer pressings I had of each of them

Snagged this one last night on Amazon for $16.. Live double LP.. Been bulking the **** out of my amazon wishlist  the last few weeks when I have spare time and recording comments of the lowest prices I see stuff dropping to since I've noticed the prices fluctuate so much. Supposedly because of whatever weird algorithm they use. After I bought it the price immediately jumped to $49.. back down to $44.30 now lol Makes no logical sense.. it's $25US + international post from Puscifer official website..

Wait-whut? What happened to actives?!?!?

Well, until I build the dedicated granny flat first (lack of funds) then it kinda made more sense to see what the market offers when the room is built (when I expect to also have a lack of funds!)

Picked this up in a bargain bin. $20 for four records, jam packed with great covers of Bob Dylan songs. I have to admit that cover versions are my favoured way of taking in Bob’s songs. 
The records are free of warps, and super thin- they would be lucky to be 120g- the whole package is about as thick as a reissue single 180g gatefold, which suits me just fine. The sound quality is great, and there are some great performers- Iron and Wine, Calexico, Stephen Malkmuss, Sonic Youth, Tom Verlaine, Willy Nelson, and even a single track from Bob and The Band.

I’m Not There- OST

I scored ELO Greatest hits Vol 1 for $15 at the local market. Record looks brand new.
Now to get Vol 2. Apparently only released at LP in Spain?

The JVC tables are generally simpler to recap than the equivalent Denon's (less caps in the 71 & 81) so provided none of the chips are damaged repair aught not to be a problem.  If the chips were damaged though you pretty much have to buy another working unit for parts.

 

Great deck. I can't recommend a repairer unfortunately.

First try at these tone poet series releases. Surprised to be playing it now on two accounts. First, it was ordered on Amazon, who will now stop stocking vinyl. And second, the package, two or three times larger than the item itself, was half crushed 🙄

Hi All,

 

Another lot of arrivals yesterday from JB and a couple of others that were ordered a few weeks ago from OS, just on eBay and note something I had a watch on has increased 15%+ since the beginning of last week without the price in $US remaining the same. Probably all equipment etc. will rise exponentially with the Ozzie dollar falling.

New tonearm for my Thorens, it’s actually the one from my old project that supports VTA adjustment and now I’m enjoying my 2M black more and more. I’m still need to do some tweaks as the technician couldn’t remove the arm board that was used for the RBA 250.

 

I’m spinning some of my reference albums: Abraxas, Strangers in the night, Silk degrees, Communique, Turnstiles and Miles Kind of blue.

Going to be committing sacralige in here I think.. Purchased a Denon PMA-800ne Link.

 

To replace my bunch of random components (Arcam FMJ19, Cambridge Audio Dacmagic and Blue Horizon Profono.

 

Getting it all in one box & matching with my Denon DP1200 (DL103) record player, Denon DCM500ae CD Player & Denon TU260L II Tuner (recently purchased on the forums) should be good for wife appreciation factor.
