  1. And how frustrating is it when you see it in the shops weeks before yours eventually arrives (or doesn't, as the case may be!)
  2. Pre-ordered mine from Audiophile Reference Recordings. No word yet. Hopefully they're in the country and we don't have to wait for another pressing as someone suggested! On the subject of delays, I'm waiting on the Dylan Bootleg Series 4 LP set pressed up by Third Man Records. According to the tracking, it cleared customs on 24 September and on 8 October it was with the Australia Post sorting centre in Sunshine - which seems to be where it's stuck ever since! I checked with my local post office yesterday who confirmed this is not uncommon at the moment, so maybe that's where all the missing KoB's are! 🤷‍♂️

  10. I saw Sierra Ferrell perform a couple of times when she was over here before the plague struck. She has the authentic country sound of a bygone era yet manages not to sound dated. Was always hoping she'd release something on vinyl, and now here it is. The quality of the songs, the singing and the musicianship from start to finish is mind-blowing. Anyone who loves Americana music should add this LP to their collection without delay!
  11. I went through something similar with digital streaming... first with set-up issues (who knew that we'd have to be experts in computerese just to be able to listen to a darn song?!), then for years it would just cut out for no explicable reason. Tried everything, like you - calling in 'experts' from all fields (including Telstra), upgrading ethernet cables and the rest, until one day, based on something an Indian techy who came to buy a soundbar I was selling said, I just changed the laptop I was using as my front end, reloaded Roon, and hey presto - very few problems since. That said, it still irks me that I have to have an internet connection and several boxes to play digital music and would much prefer a one-box CD-type solution except with digital files (like the units made by Cocktail Audio, but with sota sound quality). All this has ensured that I love my vinyl collection as much as ever - even changing records, which helps keep the blood circulating and can be a kind of Zen ceremony in itself! 😇
  12. I too have the the 8 hour version (as a download). Wonderful stuff.

  14. Further information: Serial no. 74842. For shipping please add $15 (Express Post) Photos:
  15. My stock answer to people who question my obsession with music and hi-fi is: a man needs a hobby. The best study I've read of what can happen to those who don't have one is crime writer James Ellroy's autobiography 'My Dark Places', where he writes extensively about "male energy displaced". It's an eye-opener. Keep obsessing, hi-fi nerds! 🤓
