Sonny Clark - Cool Struttin’ (Stereo) // Blue Note
Japanese King Pressing 1978 (GXK 8043)   NM/NM 
Without OBI strip, but with liner notes in Japanese. Sleeve and vinyl both look pretty much new. Vinyl is pristine, and shiny, with no surface marks visible. Typically quiet Jap pressing, and as per all other Masterpiece King pressings, this one sounds amazing. No better gateway drug into Blue Note goodness. Amazing hard bop, one of my favourites. Only selling as I have the music matters version. Priced to reflect condition.  // $50
 
Sonny Rollins - Vol. 2 (Mono) // Blue Note
Classic Records Pressing 2006 (BN 1558-MONO-200G)   NM/VG+ 
As above, a rare classic records gem. QUIEX SV-P technology, 200G weight, and deep groove. Glossy and sturdy, stoughton tip-on jacket. Sleeve appears as new on this one too. Very small (2-3mm) scratch on side 1 close to the outer edge causes a few audible tics, hence the VG+ grade. Otherwise looks clean and glossy and plays with no issue. Beautiful mastering, with a rich sound. …a timeless session and a milestone in jazz history …" this recording has it all; giant artists, fantastic performances and musicianship at extremes. Selling as I have an original.  // $70
 
Sonny Rollins - Sonny Rollins Vol. 1 (Mono) // Blue Note
Japanese King Pressing 1977 (GXK 8016)   VG+/NM 
No OBI, but with liner notes in Japanese. Sleeve shows some signs of age, with mild corner dings and spine wear. Vinyl clean and glossy. Great early Blue Note session for Sonny. Straight up hard bop. Features Donald Byrd on trumpet, and Max Roach on drums!. Also known as Vol. 1  // $45
 
Lee Morgan - Indeed! (Mono) // Blue Note 
Japanese Toshiba Pressing 1983 (BLP1538)   VG+/NM 
No OBI, with liner notes in Japanese. Record looks brand new. Clean waxy black surface. Quiet throughout. Light tics only heard during silence between tracks. Very spacious soundstage for a mono recording. Sleeve shows signs of wear and staining on spine and back (>30 years old after all). As far as the content, this was Lee Morgan’s debut as band leader on Blue Note. He was only 18 at the time. Great lineup including Philly ‘Joe’ Jones on drums and Horace Silver on piano. First class bebop here. Only selling as I have a Music Matters 45RPM copy. // $45

Dexter Gordon - Our Man In Paris (Stereo, 2xLP, 45RPM) // Blue Note
Music Matters Pressing 2012 (MMBST-84146)   NM/NM 
I will not spend much time expounding on the quality of music matters releases, but will say that these are the BEST you will hear these albums sound, outside of 1st pressings (which would literally cost you thousands). The pinnacle of audiophile grade vinyl. This MM album is now out of stock and CANNOT be purchased new anywhere. It is unlikely to be repressed. I happen to own two copies of this, don’t ask me why. This particular copy is close to perfect. Shiny laminated gatefold cover (some scuffs if carefully scrutinised). The vinyl looks a little strange with some ‘staining’ (came from the factory this way), but playback is dead quiet with absolutely no clicks or pops heard. 45 RPM allows the music more space to breathe. Also helps avoid dreaded inner groove distortion. This album is different for Blue Note, in that it was recorded in Paris. An all-time classic, cementing Dexter Gordon’s status as one of the finest tenor saxophonists around. 5 tracks, all standards, including an incredible rendition of ‘A Night in Tunisia’. // $120
 
John Coltrane - Blue Train (Mono) // Blue Note
Classic Records Pressing 2005 (BN 1577-MONO-200G)   NM/NM 
An exceedingly rare audiophile pressing of this all-time jazz classic. Classic Records are unfortunately no longer in business. QUIEX SV-P technology, 200G weight, and deep groove. Sleeve appears new. Sounds amazing, like the band is in the room with you. No need for me to discuss the music here. Only selling as I now have the Music Matters SRX version. // $160 
 
Kenny Dorham - Afro-Cuban (Mono) // Blue Note
Japanese Toshiba Pressing 1983 (BLP1535)   NM/NM
No OBI, no liner notes. Record and sleeve look immaculate. Again, clean waxy vinyl surface without scuffs or scratches. Quiet playback. One of my favourite Blue Note titles. Pure fire. Two sides of contrasting styles. Side 1 has 4 tracks, all with an afro-cuban percussion heavy feel. Side 2 is more straight up hard bop. Played by an all-star group that includes Hank Mobley, Horace Silver, JJ Johnson, and the one and only Art Blakey. Hard to find in this condition. Again, only letting go as I have a Music Matters SRX copy that I prefer. // $70
 
Lee Morgan - Candy (Mono) // Blue Note
Japanese Toshiba Pressing 2008 (TOJJ 6507)   NM/NM 
As new. With OBI and liner notes in Japanese. Remastered, and reissued only in Japan as part of Blue Note founder Alfred Lion’s 100th birth year Anniversary. Limited copies, no longer available for sale new. Great set, very enjoyable and accessible even for those new to jazz and hard bop. Can’t go wrong with this lineup. // $80 
 
The Amazing Bud Powell - The Scene Changes, Vol. 5 (Stereo) // Blue Note
Japanese King Pressing 1978 (GXK 8075)   VG/NM 
No OBI, but with liner notes in Japanese. Sleeve shows some signs of age, with a bottom left corner ding, and spine wear. Vinyl clean and glossy. Piano driven jazz trio. Widely considered Bud’s finest release. Amazing showcase of Bud’s talents on the ivory keys. Even playfully dabbles with a classical piece or two somewhere in there.  // $30 
 
Kenny Burrell - Midnight Blue (Stereo) // Blue Note
Japanese Toshiba Pressing 2008 (TOJJ 6518)   NM/NM 
As new. With OBI and liner notes in Japanese. Remastered, and reissued only in Japan as part of Blue Note founder Alfred Lion’s 100th birth year Anniversary. Limited copies, no longer available for sale new. In my top 10 Blue Note albums of all time. An essential part of any music lover’s collection IMHO. Smooth, accessible guitar driven blues-jazz at its finest. Love the addition of Ray Barretto on the Conga.  // $80 
 
 
Horace Silver - Horace Silver Trio (Mono) // Blue Note
Japanese Toshiba Pressing 1983 (BLP 1520)   NM (shrink)/NM 
With OBI sticker, and liner notes in Japanese. Sleeve still in shrink, basically looks new. Vinyl is clean and glossy, with no surface marks visible. Quiet pressing, sounds amazing. An interesting early release from the illustrious Horace Silver, with a particular focus on Art Blakey on drums and Sabu on percussion. Pretty rare early release, and in near mint condition. Selling as I have the VMP anthology version.  // $40

      I acquired this PWD fairly recently, privately in WA, as a Mark 1 version and have since upgraded it to a Mark 2.
      I am guessing that anyone interested in this unit will already know all about the PS Audio PerfectWave DAC.
      Furthermore, this unit can also be upgraded/converted into a PerfectStream configuration.
      Since upgrading, I have had it working flawlessly through the Bridge Mark 1, via ethernet, streaming from my Mini Mac server, using JRiver app. 
      I was very happy with the result and am only selling because I have (unexpectedly) just upgraded to very high end CD player, which has an equally high end, externally accessible DAC.
      I do also have the remote control.
      As per the pics, external appearance is very good, with no blemishes that I can see. So, fortunately or unfortunately, PWD no longer required., as I can now stream through the CD player DAC, thus simplifying the whole system..

      Extra Info: 
      A massive machine that gets the best out of your vinyl. Separate Sub Chassis and a mass loaded turntable gives us the best of both worlds.

      The design of the E.A.T. Forte turntable is based on a combination of two basic principles:
      Separate Sub Chassis and a mass loaded turntable This gives us the best of both worlds. The chassis of the table is very heavy and mass-loaded using metal-fi lled sand. The feet are magnetic and act as a sub chassis to support the table.
      Platter
      The platter consists of two parts. The first part uses a soft alloy, the second part, a harder one. This reduces energy flow. The first part also incorporates the neodymium magnets. The platter weighs more than 20 kg (44 lbs). The diameter of the platter is 400 mm (15.75 1/2) (not the usual 300 mm [11.8 1/2]). Kinetic energy stored in such big platter turning at 33 RPM is an incredible 2460 Joules! This means that with the same weight you gain more moving mass on the platter. The platter also incorporates sorbothane damping to make it resonance free.
      Vinyl matt
      The vinyl matt is made from recycled vinyl records crating a perfect interface for the record. A clamp holds the record on the vinyl matt.
      Bearing construction
      The bearing is not standard but inverted with an oversized polished shaft. A ceramic ball is used on the top because it is very hard and inert. This, in combination with a Teflon plate as a bearing mirror, is also a good damping device. Teflon's accurate satin surface produces perfectly smooth movement without any rumble. The platter has a magnetic suspension using neodymium magnets. By increasing the distance from the bearing to the cartridge, the small neodymium magnets eliminate magnetic infl uence on the cartridge. Due to the magnets we can still move a large mass allowing the bearing to see virtually no pressure. This avoids rumble. (A mass loaded platter usually causes high levels of rumble.) The pressure of the bearing is adjustable. There are existing different philosophies about bearing pressure. With the Forte turntable you can adjust it according your preferences and taste.
      Magnetic Feet
      The table has large magnetic feet with a bearing and stabilization system. It guaranties close to 100% isolation from the floor and from airborne resonances. The magnetic bearing system allows us to use the extra silent Tefl on-ceramic combination. Usually high pressure would cause the bearing to wear out over the time. This does not happen because of the very low pressure created by the use of the magnetic system.
      Motor
      The motor is a stand-alone, decoupled AC unit. It uses a sophisticated electronic circuit to create 100% clean AC. It is very heavy motor with lot of mass to reduce all the existing vibrations. Motor energy is absorbed by using a sandwich system of metal and MDF. We decided to use a "dual motor design" to eliminate noise in the motor. By using two relatively weak, but silent running motors, we achieve perfect torque.
      Belt
      Long belts usually have some amount of wobble. To avoid this we use a special silicon string. This movement is also absorbed by the bearing block and by the huge mass of the platter itself.
      E.A.T. the Energy
       
      The E.A.T. Forte turntable is all about eating energy.
       
         - Energy from the ground is decoupled by magnetic feet.
         - Energy from the air is decoupled from the heavy chassis that is made from MDF and fi lled metal sand.
         - Energy from tone arm and cartridge is absorbed by using a heavy metal tone arm base isolated by sorbothane.
         - Energy from the belt is captured by the mass of the platter and by the string itself.
         - Energy from the motor is captured by the dual-motor design, the decoupled motor unit and the mass-loaded motor chassis.
         - Energy of the bearing is catch by the ceramic ball, the Tefl on plate and the magnetic bearing construction.
