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    

The SME 15 arrived today, now for the painful wait until next week when Andy McLean can set it up and fit the SME V arm.

Polymer by Plaid. One of my favourite electronic/hybrid/experimental albums and finally I have it on vinyl!

New and used vinyl and new tonearm guts. I can’t believe I’m about to pull my Rega arm apart.

Some of the cover art is worth the purchase alone.

Pair of vintage Brimar 12AX7 valves from the forum to install in my Prima Luna Evo 100...

 

Could just be me but, I think I've achieved what I set out to in taming some shrill highs on certain tracks... No loss of low end, subtle lift in the midrange & the high end not quite so shrill on pieces such as the mouth organ on Bob Dylan's 'All along the watch tower' & The Rolling Stones 'Sympathy for the devil' guitar solo...

 

In combination with my tannoy XT6F's I think I'm getting closer to SQ nirvana... Very Happy with a not so expensive upgrade...

 

Now... let's not let tube rolling become an addiction...?

Tube rolling is fun.

I quickly ran out of budget though. Be careful, especially when you're shopping for pairs or, in some cases, quads and octets.

It arrived with the packaging looking like it'd been sat on, so I'm actually impressed it's as flat as it is!

A recent discovery following a discussion on another board. I have an original of the Elton John 17-11-70 pressing which sounds fabulous, but for RSD a couple of years ago, this reissue was released with a further 7 tracks not on the original. (Also quite like the new Foo Fighters album in picture and tracking down a decent pressing of Blind faith on the left has taken me a while too.2018277220_17-11-70.thumb.jpeg.ae52b4ec8ec464fac98bb68a2ca87441.jpeg

 

Another recent RSD purchase was Alternate Rumours. Like many of us, Rumours is easily a top 5 of all time album and I know it like the back of my hand, but this pressing of demos, early takes and alternative versions was a total gut-punch that I was not expecting. First listen was quite an emotional experience; very little studio polish, raw, pure performances and the beauty of the song writing pushed to the fore. I can't recommend highly enough:

Here are my latest purchases from last week and today.

It was my birthday last week so a few were gifts and for the rest, well I decided to treat myself.

Perhaps it was a "limited edition pressing" ?    Glad to hear they're sending a replacement though.

Tash is an amazing Aussie talent, the first albums were very impressive, awaiting Terra to arrive any day as well. Check her out on Spotify etc and then by the vinyl. Enjoy...

with this, my Rega RP40 mods are complete. 
 

Anything more and I’ll return to stock, sell off the mod parts and standard table and go for a P8 or something. I think I’ve gone as far as I can with this now. 
 

To celebrate, I put on some Genesis and went back to 1987 when I went to a concert at Western Springs in Auckland as part of their Invisible Touch tour.
