The audioquest one looks better however.

 

The carbon fibre and velvet one from JB Hifi is cheaper however.

Yes I almost brought that yesterday only I had read how sometimes the Velvet ones can scratch records? I wanted to try their standard one (brush only) but the only one they had in stock was damaged - bristles went all different directions. I shall try another store though.

Reviews on the Audio Quest have not been very glowing as some say the bristles fall out and the gold part wears off.

 

You would think by these times there would have been something invented to stop static eh? A light safe spray, afterall us ladies can get anti-static spray to put on our undergarments - LOL

I ended up ordering a Pro-Ject anti static carbon brush - the Audio quest after reading so many reviews seems to have very mixed results - many say the bristles fall out and the gold part wears off really fast from just general handling. The Pro-Ject one is more affordable too at $25 with free shipping - and being all metal at the top you don't have to worry about keeping contact with the gold part like you do on the AQ one. 

 

I am sure the one I was sold by the record store here on the Goldie is really not so good - I am not sure the top is even metal to be honest.

 

I have been having such issues with static - even with the Milty Zero Stat - I am starting to think it is the cheap Carbon Brush causing it.

 

I have been using my Spin Clean & re-sleeving in Mofi and I Milty Stat prior play, then use the brush - but I think I might start to try using the brush first then Milty Stat last before going on the platter.

 

Hard to think the Gold Coast would have so much static when we usually have humidity, but  the heat is quite dry and so much dust and likely ash particles from all the bush fires I guess, it is quite horrible - but could be worse, at least I didn't lost my house in the fires like some poor souls did 😞

I use a very old but well cared for record brush 

And it’s the best one I have ever used because it’s a dual purpose clean and antistatic 

 


This is the description I got from the WWW

 

Description

The Decca Record Brush is unique in that it serves a dual purpose effectively.

The Brush consists of a million tiny fibre bristles.

This means that each sweep of the record surface will allow upwards of a thousand bristles to enter each groove to clean it and remove more dust, dirt and grit than any other product available.

And there is one other vital task the Decca Record Brush undertakes: each bristle is electrically conductive.

Static on the record is removed through the bristles as you clean, without the aid of fluids or special compounds.

At last, a record surface cleaner which also removes static: the Decca Record Brush.

It comes complete with its own combined cleaner/stand, with full instructions.

Hi All,

 

Ogden's Nut Gone Flake, Mono

 

Ogden.jpg.f0f8a11a23b2281baf06e8243a850898.jpg

 

While on the area of cleaning brushes, you can see mine there, a Furutech purchased from @Krispy Audio when on sale several years back, info re same says:

 

Furutech's ASB-1 is a static eliminating brush created for audio and video applications. Featuring "COREBRID ™ B” composite core fibers, a unique highly conductive material. By lightly brushing the surface CDs, DVDs and LPs, the ASB-1 will remove static charge and at the same time remove any dust from the grooves of LPs. This revolutionary product solves in one simple sweep the problem of electro static noise and deteriorating sound and image quality.

I always thought they should have released an album "Keeping The ".

Would have been a great album title for them.

From what I have read - this album would not have been released as new material was in the pipeline but egos and disagreements got in the way 

 

Even though this album release has old material it’s still timeless nonetheless 

Cover art was by Joni Mitchell 

 

Artist - Crosby Stills Nash & Young 

Title - So Far

      Item: Sansui SR-212 Vintage 70s Turntable - Japan - Professionally Restored & Upgraded
      Location: Sydney
      Price: $450, open to reasonable offers
      Item Condition: Very Good, recently serviced/restored/upgraded and working.
      Reason for selling: No longer required
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      I recently inherited this Sansui SR-212 turntable , which is of 1970s vintage and is made in Japan. The turntable employs a unique multiple suspension/insulation system to eliminate howling ( it has a suspended sub-chassis design). 
       
      The deck is in really nice condition, no major blemishes to speak of. Even the lid is in good condition, no cracks and the hinges also appear to be working fine.
       
      It did need some minor repair work to get it up and running, so I engaged Chris from Spin Doctor Music here in Sydney to repair/restore the deck for me which he did very well.
       
      In the process the following upgrades were also made to the deck :
      Brand new drive belt Brand new Jelco HS-25 cartridge shell was purchased and installed onto the tonearm Brand new Ortofon 2M Silver MM phono cartridge was purchased, installed and aligned Brand new AUS power cord was installed  
      Initially I thought I might use this Sansui TT in a second system, but It turns out that I won't be making use of it after all.
       
      So , it's up for sale now to someone who can make use of it.
       
      Everything is in good working order, including the arm cueing and auto-return mechanism. Platter speed has been tested by Spin Doctor Music and is accurate and stable at both 33.1/3 and 45 speeds.
       
      Some more info and general specs on this turntable are available here:
      https://www.vinylengine.com/library/sansui/sr-212.shtml
       
      Note of course that this one has the Ortofon 2M Silver cart and Jelco headshell upgrades. The Ortofon 2M Silver seems to sit between the 2M Blue and the 2M Bronze in the Ortofon 2M lineup.  I will also provide the original headshell and also the (probably very worn out) original SC-37 IM cartridge.
       
      I don’t have any boxes or packaging for the deck, so I would prefer local pickup from Sydney.
       
      I've also got the original operation manual for it.
       
      The new Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge and Jelco HS-25 headshell together alone would cost over $400 RRP. 
       
      Buyer will need to add their own RCA-RCA phono cable to connect the deck to an amp/phono stage.
       
      Local pickup Sydney only. COD payment is easiest, or happy to receive a bank/BSB or PayPal Friends transfer before pickup.
       
      Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

      A very Black Friday: how the fetish for vinyl is sending prices soaring, a mainstream article on this issue... "...there’s a diehard group of consumers who will continue to support this state of affairs. It’ll never go away because there’s always a market for it – it’s been so over-fetishised that it’s part of the culture now. That’s why the majors have adopted some of these silly pricing policies.”

      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 -
