Nitin Sawhney ‎– Prophesy - spun at 33 instead of 45 - changes the vocals to a man and brings in a sort of dub beat to the music.   try it :tongue:

Introversion - For They Know Not What They Do -- a short album of shimmering waves of sound. Some of the tracks seem to be end a bit too soon for my liking, but worth a listen late at night.   €1 for the lossless download from Bandcamp.

The Green Kingdom - Expanses / Remixes - the original Expanses album plus remixes from the likes of Hotel Neon, Warmth, Roel Funcken, etc. The original album was described by the artist as "my homage to classic ambient and ambient techno albums of the past, albeit passed through the filter of dusty samples from old vinyl and classical records, the odd guitar melody, electronics and some soft rhythmic pulses", if yer wondering how it sounds. "Name Yer Price" lossless download from Bandcamp.

Hi All,

{For those who came in late, there's a cohort of enophiles who speculate that Reflections was intended for both 45rpm and 33rpm.

Kind of like Swastika Girls / Heavenly Music Corporation but planned.]

The Expansions:
 
When first played on Radio One on John Peel's show, the album was taken from a reel to reel tape that had been stored 'tail out' (standard record company practice), but played as if it had been stored 'front out' (standard BBC practice) - the resulting broadcast was of the entire album played in reverse. Both Fripp and Eno (in separate locations) heard some of the broadcast. When Eno phoned the BBC to inform them that the music was being played in reverse, he was met with a "that's what they all say.." response. As this was how many people in the UK initially heard the album, the reverse version has been recreated for this release.
 
It was commonplace for young guitarists used the 16 and 2/3 setting on record players to play 33 and 1/3 rpm vinyl albums to slow down, practice and learn favoured guitar parts. King Crimson biographer Sid Smith mentioned that he and his friends applied the same principle to No Pussyfooting simply to hear how different it would sound and how impressed they were with the result. The half speed version of The Heavenly Music Corporation is featured as the other main expansion on the new edition.

      Item: EOI: Lamm m1.2 monoblock amplifiers
      Location: Canberra
      Price: $11500 ono, non-inclusive of shipping
      Item Condition: Very good
      Reason for selling:  Moved on to other amplifiers.............
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: replaced valves with Russian equivalent 6n1p23 which are much better than 6922s
       
      In terms of complete disclosure, one lamm, had a problem with the delay switch, which is normally 45 seconds, and was taking a few minutes to turn on, I sent to Kimil electronics in Sydney, the Lamm nominated repairer, and this was fixed, without issue since
      i bought these from a SNA guy in Sydney 18 months ago, in exchange for Lamm m2.2s, and they are the correct Voltage for Australia. They were checked and rebiased by Chris at Kimil, prior to my purchase, bias is currently to Lamm specifications.
       
      I have the wooden boxes, and manual for these, I can supply 6922s, if purchaser prefers. The shipping to say Sydney is about 60 dollars each, these things are very heavy, dimensions and weight shipped can be supplied to prospective purchasers. The details are on the Lamm website I believe.
      please remember that despite large size these are 100 watts class A into 4 or 8 ohms, and roughly double AB.

      Item: Vincent SP20 Anniversary Edition Hybrid power amp.
      Location:Gold Coast Qld
      Price: $1250     paid $1730  RRP $3499
      Item Condition: 9/10 like new approx 8months old
      Reason for selling: going all valve
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only
      Extra Info:   Bought this amp on speculation when Eastwood Hifi were clearing stock at very reduced prices due to a change in distributor. 
                What piqued my interest in this model, SP20, was the combination of valve input stage  and solid state output.
                  I have enjoyed this hybrid valve amp so much I have to decided to give all valve a go.
                 This amp has great bass weight and definition allied to a top end that is not harsh but has that beautiful valve airiness. But most importantly, this amp brings out the emotion in music.
                   The first 10 watts are class A with all that brings but still retains composure at loud volume levels.
                    Also included are various input valves including original russian, RCA (nos) and Amperex.
                       Eastwood Hifi assured me any warranty claims would be fully covered by the new distributor. 
                       I have original shipping cartons and receipt. Buyer pays for shipping.
                       Only to happy to answer any questions. 
                        Thanks for looking.
      Regards Paul
