NB:  CONSERVATIVE GRADING… cover first / record grade 2nd







The Church – The Blurred Crusade - AUS original 1st pressing (PCSO 7585) VG/VG. With 1st press embossed cover, and Robert Ludwig MASTERDISK mastering (deadwax). No inner. Cover has edge bends/splits, edgwear and some light ringwear showing on front. Wax is showing some marks, sounds great though, with just a little noise on entries, but not distracting. A very desirable pressing.  $20


The Church - Starfish - Australian original pressing (RML 53266) NM/VG++. With original inner. Nice cover with virtually no wear. The record shows some light marks only, and plays NM. Really nice original example that is exceedingly hard to find these days.   $40


The Church - Gold Afternoon Fix - Spanish pressing (Arista - 210541) Strong VG/VG+. Plain white inner. Good cover, just a few tiny marks on front and some sticker residue along the back left hand side near the opening. The wax looks lovely and plays beautifully throughout.  $35


Midnight Oil - Blue Sky Mining - Spanish pressing (465653 1) Strong VG/VG+. Cover is great but for some sticker residue across the top front, and just a bit on the back. Original colour lyric inner. The wax has some light marks, but plays NM and sounds great.  $22


Everything But The Girl - The Language of Life - German pressing (BYN 21) VG+/VG+. Looks and plays great. With perfect colour lyric inner. The cover has some very light edgwear only, and a little name written inside the opening (not visible from outside). Wax shows some light hairlines in bright overhead light, but plays lovely throughout. Hard to find locally $38


Dire Straits - On Every Street - Spanish 1991 original (510 160-1) VG+/VG. Cover is great but for some edgewear, tiny splits. Really nice original lyric inner.  The wax has some hairlines/marks and plays nicely with a little noise in the quiter passages. Really hard to find this one in any kind of playable condition, locally.  $22 


****  SOLD BEFORE  ***     Chris Isaak - Self Titled - USA pressed original (1-25536) VG+/VG+. Mastered by Ken Perry at K-DISC (deadwax both sides). With single sided original B&W inner. Sleeve has a minor cut-out bottom right front (same through the inner), else virtually spotless. The wax plays with enormous power and is a tour-de-force from 'KP'.  $45


Alan Parsons Project - The Best Of.. - US 1983 Club Edition, Remastered, Gatefold (AL8-8193) VG+/VG. Lovely gatefold with just a little wear, no sticker on front (and no residue), just the lovely art. The record has a slight warp on track 1 of both sides, so you'll need a heavy tracking cart. SQ is great though and plays well in-track. A few light marks, but shiny and bright. Take it at cost price to import...  $20


The Stone Roses - Self Titled - rare Australian original gatefold pressing (ORE LP 502) VG+/VG+. Awesome gatefold original with virtually no wear (a hint of ringwear on the back the worst I can find). The record is similar - shows some very light marks, but plays faultlessly, and with zero noise. Incredible record and a super pressing.  $100


Paul Kelly And The Coloured Girls - Gossip - Aus pressed gatefold 2LP original (L45961/2) VG+/VG+. I'm saying VG+ here, but you know my gradings..this is as close to NM as you'll find this title anymore, which is 9 times out 10 beat to hell, in the wild. This gatefold is clean and beautiful but for some light marks on the back only. The two records are as new and play beautifully. I've always love the mastering job on this record and this one plays with awesome SQ.  $60


Spain - The Blue Moods of Spain - rare 1st time on vinyl 2012 pressing of the 1995 classic (OVLP-30) SEALED MINT. 180gm Translucent Blue vinyl Ltd Ed. You *never* see this in this country (at least, I never have, and I look a lot). For those that know it, a GRAIL of the highest order. Fresh as the day it was minted and ready to be ripped open and played by a devotee.  $120


New York Dolls - 'Too Much Too Soon' US press (Mercury - SRM-1-1001) VG+/NM, inner sleeve there as well, sleeve still in shrink. New York glam rock outfit at their finest. DISCOUNTED ____>>>> $65

      Hi all,
      I am interested to hear if anyone has come across a DSP based active speaker that truly does a vinyl analog signal justice.
      I am not suggesting that I have an amazing set of ears but I can usually pick a lack of warmth and clinical objectivity from DSP filters especially those that are situated in active digital speakers. 
      I really like  listening to digital music through a digital speaker but there seems to be loss when trying to experience vinyl.
      Does anyone else have a similar experience?
      Can anyone recommend a digital speaker that does vinyl justice?

      This review is somewhat of a hybrid review, being the component in question started off as somewhat of a mongrel, as many Linn LP12s are- an original afromasia plinth with the classic fluting, made in 1975. When I first purchased it, I took it to Audio Genesis in Sydney, where they performed budget priced upgrades to a late pre-cirkus bearing and subchassis, along with a new armboard and cable for the Basik arm which graced it. For some years I used a high output excel MC cartridge, and then an AT OC-9, and all was well, as I enjoyed purchasing second hand vinyl in the 1990s at cheap prices. After moving down south to Melbourne, it continued to make good music, with a steady diet of music from the 2000s, and the riches of the as yet sleepy used market. After having kids and spending lots of the past 15 years riding bikes, in the past 3-4 years, I decided that it was time to give the old girl a bit of love. I had purchased a few cartridges over the years, which given it was running through an ME-15 pre with an MC board, were all moving coil. AT PT-33 was a well priced favourite, which was superseded by an AT OC-9/mk3, and the Basik gave way to a Jelco 750D, with it's ability to swap head shells. The first big structural modification that I did to the table was a about 2 years ago, when I bought both a cirkus bearing and kore subchassis. This clearly made a difference to the sound of the deck, and the subchassis was much easier to set up, largely due to the fact the the old subchassis was slightly bent! The turntable retained a lot of the Linn rhythmic sound that keeps you listening, though the bottom end was tighter. I found that at times the detail in the high percussion was good, though it seemed to come and go a little. I also bought a trampolin 2 base, which I thought was an improvement on running it without a base, as I had done. Given I had given myself a little bit of a buzz before with the valhalla and its greater than mains voltage, and my kids were getting tall enough to reach it on the wall shelf, this was more a safety upgrade rather than a sound upgrade, though it definitely improved the looks of the deck. Another amateur structural mod that I did was to fit corner braces to the original plinth, and re-glue the corners, which did seem to tighten up the sound. This brings me to the subject of the current review...

      2019 was a year of reduced spending and hard work, and towards the end of it, as a Christmas present, my partner suggested that I should think about getting one of those plinths that I had talked about after I saw them at the Hifi show.

      I had seen this sign with a few examples in the VAF room, and discussed them with Simon from VAF, who said that he and another bloke, Ben, were starting a business around turntable setup, maintenance and upgrades, and the plinths were part of that. No they weren't yet for sale, as they were needed to show some shops. I put thoughts of immediate purchases out of my mind, and thought about other things. Now that the opportunity came to purchase one, got into contact with Ben, through the website www.hifiguru.com.au . I checked out a few of the models they had on offer on the still pretty rudiimentary website, and really had my heart set on a red gum plinth with a fantastic wavy grain. Ben got back to me via email, and we messaged about what was available, and agreed that I would get the Red gum, along with a new Linn top plate. The cost of the plinth was about $1500, which is a little more than a stock Linn plinth, but much cheaper than importing a Woodsong plinth or Booplinth, which were crazy prices. It may seem a bit silly paying this much for the wood surround of a record player, but I reasoned that when I play a record, I listen, let my thoughts wander, and spend quite a lot of time looking at the turntable itself, so getting one that is just beautiful was not so silly. It took the better part of a month to go from agreeing to purchase to getting the plinth itself, due to christmas and holidays, and during that time, I took advantage of a sale at Tivoli hifi to pick up a lingo 4 at a good price. It just seemed that if I was going to update the plinth, the motor had to be done too. 
      Come the end of January, and it was all coming together. I met Ben to pick up the plinth, and despite his offer to build up the player as part of the purchase, I really wanted to do it myself. The plinth looked even better in the flesh than I remembered, and certainly than in photos. The top plate was well set and the bolts were vertical. It was time to build. I had borrowed a set up jig and some tools, which make the whole shebang much easier. 


      First up was removing the subplatter, bearing and tonearm from the old table, which was no problem at all. Then was the process of fitting the Lingo 4 into the new plinth, along with the aforementioned bits. All went fairly well, with no issues. Soon I had a table which was fully stocked with parts, just needing tuning.



      If any of you have set up the suspension of an LP12, it is not magic, but it does require a bit of futzing around after you have set the platter to level, at about the height of the plinth edge. After the requisite twisting of the spring grommets, and bouncing of the platter, I had achieved a good bounce with no side to side movement. After that I attached and dressed the tonearm cable, which took a little longer, with a bit more twisting and bouncing for good measure. It was ready for the base to be reinstalled (a tight fit) and to be placed on the wall shelf (essential for any turntable in a house with floorboards, in my opinion). 

      The finished product looks fantastic- a definite step up from the old girl who has travelled so far with me. It sounds fantastic, retaining that rhythmic coherence that LP12's are famous for, but what the Plinth/Lingo 4 add is a little more air in the upper frequencies- cymbals sound a bit more like they should, with less tizz, and a bit more separation of instruments. The biggest change to my ears has been the increased definition of bass guitar, bass drum, and the bottom end in general. It comes across as stronger, but without the kind of amiable boominess that the older versions of the deck have had. I have found that the change has been for the better with all the styles of music that I play, from rock/pop/metal, to jazz and classical. Overall this renovation of my LP12 has been just what I wanted- bringing a bit more audiophile into the musical fun of the original, without losing any of it.
      For the moment I am just enjoying it, currently listening regularly, with no thoughts of what comes next.
