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.

Oz first pressing, how I wish I was here at that time :(

My first ever concert seeing them at Brisbane Entertainment Centre for this tour. MK was an idol of mine as a teenager, and to see him in the flesh was absolutely surreal. 

Hope your copy has less noise, pops and clicks than my original copy has ;)

Even "At the Shops" 

I get nostalgic just looking at the cover 😅

Lead singer and guitarist Ash Naylor has been a regular in Paul Kelly's band for some time now, and more recently as house band guitarist on Rockwiz.

Decided to add a full dedicated mono set up on the techdas given it's got the room and I have a Linn Akito arm doing nada.

 

Arm board from Italy ( $266 AUD landed compared to $$$ for techdas one!), Ortofon Mono SE direct from Ortofon in Denmark and a hell of a lot of mucking around to get arm on the board (took a fair bit of adjustment as board for a Micro seiki arm and the Linn arm need new holes. 

 

Sounds great on the Beatles Mono Masters album. Wish I bought the Mono albums release a few years ago for $400 - they now go $2-3K. Ouch!

Yes, I have since checked Discogs, 2016 reissue, limited to 1000 copies.

I was thinking that might be the problem with an original.....it's actual condition. Great to see it's been reissued!
