Thanks guys,

Keen to try any of the suggestions, chairs or milk crates just to see the missus reaction :)

 

 

I was assuming too, that your room is very small, but if you can get your listening position back to around 3 - 3.5 metres, you would find a massive improvement in performance if you could get those Kefs 2 - 2.5 metres apart as well.

 

Cheers Keith

That is quite an eclectic bunch of records there.

 

The Slowdive and Nothing But Thieves are new additions to my listening pleasure. But that is quite a days work there my friend. Hope there was alcohol in the equation.

 

Interesting speakers there by the way.  Not seen them before. Different. Are they DIY?

The Teskey Brothers

Half Mile Harvest

2019 Reissue

Black Vinyl

 

A little disappointed with the pressing, quite "hissy" -  I might have to take it to the next record fair & pay the dude there to give it a clean with his Ultra Sonic Cleaner and hope it will fix it up. Such a shame when it is new out of shrink wrap & that the 1989 single played prior is mint and sounds better.

 

But the material is fabulous and I would like to thank @Ahh- Schnoo Schnoo for the recommendation.

I Might recommend you to invest on a good DAC and a high res subscription like Tidal Masters, you won’t get the vinyl experience but it sounds quite nice with the right gear. Unfortunately most of the time you will have to spend an arm and a leg on a good reissue, I wanted to get one of the Dire Straits MoFis but can’t afford over 100 for one album :(, the reviews are amazing though

there was plenty of wine, hence the blurring of the last few pics   :)  feeling it today.

 

Speakers were built by @cheekyboy at Wyndham Audio.  (CH2's). They are fantastic, easily the best I've had in any system.

 

Here is a link to them

I have the Orange release and it doesn't have any noise.  FYI.

 

Great band, Aussie and all.  Their latest is quite good as well.

I normally have a lovely vinyl experience with most of my albums but this one is a little hissy. I have this album on CD if I want the "perfect digital experience" - but prefer vinyl out of choice. I have a good Turntable and Cartridge & phono pre-amp - just sadly sometimes you get vinyl that can be a little disappointing. I do prefer original issues most of the time though.

This vinyl also has some what patchy marks through the vinyl so suspecting maybe a faulty lot?

 

I have a Technics 1200GR, Turntable, Orotofon Bronze M cart, Dyanvector Pre Phono, Marantz Amp & B&W speakers.

Thank you - I have contacted the seller to see if they have had other problems with this one, as it might be a faulty batch, maybe I will see what they say and try to get the orange one .............thank you 🙂

 

I have both albums on CD but liked this one the most so wanted to have it on vinyl. 😉

Nice gear, I do have a bronze cart as well and use the bronze stylus or the Black one depending on the record condition. The black is amazing but it picks every defect on each album.

Thank you I really love my set up and have learnt to be content with it now as it has warmed up nicely over the last couple of months and just blends together beautifully now. 🙂

 

I noticed that when I went from my first turntable the Audio Technica LP120 with their cart supplied and then upgraded  to the Technics 1200 GR T/T and the bronze that the bronze does highlight the good and the bad, but it does sound way better overall and I love it, except if there is a slight warp in the record "sometimes" I can hear the stylus in the groove at the start which I did not notice with the older cart - but guess that is due to it getting in deeper into the groove - was told this is normal & I do play my music loud & so if the volume is up I guess I am hearing the physical contact of the two 🤣 but mostly this does not happen, as thankfully I have very few wonky records.

 

I will likely never go with the black M Cart  though even though I would like try it,  if it highlights defects more - hahahaha - but I really cannot afford the Black to be honest. Same reason I will not go with the MC cart - I cannot afford to sustain that. I do like the Bronze anyway and have learnt to be satisfied with what I can afford and grateful to have a nice system within my budget.

 

But I do get cranky when I get a new vinyl record and it is noisy or hissy - as I know that is not my system - and I find it distracting.

 

I do try to get the original older pressings if I can, but of course hard to do that with new bands/artists. 😔

 

I do use Discogs for reviews but of course not all new releases have reviews so it can be a bit of a gamble.

 

Overall I have success though, just sometimes one gets disappointed.

      The Rat Pack – Live At The Sands – 2LP Limited reissue in gatefold - BRAND NEW & SEALED.
      2014 rmastered set, originally recorded live at The Sands Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada on September 7, 1963. 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.

      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!

      Here's the newest one : YouTube
    • By Warren Jones
      Item Condition: As New Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Terang State: Victoria Payment Method: Reason for selling: Never used Further information: I have decided to sell some of my Wings and Paul McCartney LP's. All were bought new by me in the 1970/80's and all are Australian pressings. Some like Wings over America have never been out of the jacket. All are as NEW, most are first Aussie pressings. The record jackets and inner sleeves are in the same condition they came new from Brashes in Dee Why.
       
      This is a once in a life time opportunity to obtain effectively new old stock LP's.
       
      I know how difficult it can be to buy used LP's so I'm happy for anyone to audition on my Technics SP10. I played Wings Wild Life for the first time last night and without cleaning it was as you would expect from a new LP.
       
      $100.00 each plus postage if needed
