  5. I bought some KEF concerto speakers recently, and I think my little vintage integrated ROTEL RA-611 might be struggling to get proper bass response from them, as they sound a bit empty in that department. A forum member told me they are quite “current thirsty” speakers, and I might be better looking for a more powerful power source (maybe a separate power amplifier could be the way to go?). I liked integrated Amps for the simplicity of one box, but I”they usually have a lot of redundant features for my needs. I was wondering if I got just a power amplifier, could i get a pre amp with fewer bells and whistles? Do they exist? e.g - I never use the muting / tone defeat switches or tape inputs on my amp. I only really want phono pre-amplification, maybe an additional line input or two, volume control, tone control - that would be enough… I’m a bit unsure about pairing preamps with separate power amps as I’m new to that world, but would love some advice on how to match and keep it simple (as I’m mostly playing vinyl, maybe plugging a laptop in at times). thanks in advance!

  7. Further Information: Stravinsky The Recorded Legacy superb boxed set of Igor Stravinsky’s finest recordings Set is in excellent near mint condition. only thing is there is an acrylic cover plate that goes on the front of the box set that has the top return missing does not affect the set or how secure it is as the cover plate still slides right onto the box. 31 Album set from Discogs: Igor Stravinsky: The Recorded Legacy is CBS Masterworks' massive box of 31 LPs, released in 1981 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Stravinsky's birth year 1882. The vast majority of Stravinsky's recordings were made for CBS Masterworks starting in 1957 -- when he was 75 years old -- and extending to 1967, when he made his last public appearances. Igor Stravinsky: The Recorded Legacy includes, in one way or another, some 90 percent of the music Stravinsky is known to have composed. Save the inclusion of both The Firebird Ballet and its corresponding suite, alternate incarnations of works are not found here nor are several of Stravinsky's other piano pieces or the Three Pieces for String Quartet. Apart from that, Igor Stravinsky: The Recorded Legacy runs the ‘Stravinskian’ gamut, from the opera The Rake's Progress in its entirety to Epitaphium, a late career tidbit lasting all of 70 seconds. Specific Details: Commemorative presentation, cloth bound boxset (14, 2 LP individual gatefolds and 1 x 3LP boxset - 31 LP's in all) With 44 page, illustrated, presentation booklet on fine art paper.

  8. What would you buy for best quality sound ? Pretty sure I want to buy new
  9. The Vinyl Renaissance: Take Those Old Records Off the Shelf If listeners today can stream just about any song they want, why are so many music aficionados still buying records? Ryan Raffaelli and Gold Rush Vinyl CEO Caren Kelleher discuss the resurgence of vinyl. “The more that we talk to college students and teenagers about why they buy vinyl, the common thread is that having vinyl in your dorm room or your house says something about you and who you are.”
  10. I wonder if Penfolds are also selling their turntables as well? I wonder who makes their system? Might have to pop along one day.

  12. I have just finished cataloging my late brother's Vinyl collection and will intend selling it in the near future. Apart from the 492 Albums (537 individual records), the collection is quite varied and I must admit that even though I was teenager in the 70s there is still a bunch of stuff that I had never heard of. Even more interesting was that he was obviously a big fan of the Rolling Stones / Lou Reed and others of that ilk, his collection also includes Orchestral music including Brahms. My biggest laugh , however, was finding a children's album "Games and songs to play on your birthday" by Patsy Biscoe! Anyone seen a more varied collection? Also, I would welcome any advice as to how to sell such a collection.

  13. Has anyone ordered and got it yet? What do you think? Mine left Melbourne on Friday so it should be here by Wednesday
  14. More than 5 years ago, a dear friend who took care of my house when I was away for holiday left two of The Beatles' records on top of my turntable upon my return. What a surprise and wonderful gifts! The story was that one of his parents was born in England. The parents went back to England for their honeymoon in the 60s. Although not clear which year but from the release date of the two records it would have to be 69 or early 70's. Although not a big fan of The Beatles' nor pop music, they bought these two records as souvenirs because they were very popular! According to the parents, the records were played only a number of times and they haven't been played for over 40 years. The turntable was long gone and my friend has never seen a turntable in their house. I am not a Beatles' fan so I only played them once and untouched for two years. In 2015, I made two thread to find out the which pressings they actually are. With the help of knowledgable SNA members, I found out that I have been given: 1. Please Please Me - Stereo UK 7th Pressing 2. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Mono UK 1st Pressing with mixed-up LP Advertising inner sleeves Now another 3 years have past, I really have only played these two records once more when I made the threads to find out their actual pressings. And the 3rd time before I took pictures again to make sure they are still sounding fine. Recently I chatted with my friend about this. I told him again what superb gifts he has given me but I really don't play them much. Instead of keeping the records in the cabinet, we should let those who loves The Beatles enjoy these wonderful records. I will sell them and treat him to one of the top restaurant. Shocking! I know... Well, it depends how much the records are worth, of course... Both records sounded superb, they both have that retro sound we vinyl spinners love. The covers have obvious signs of old age, wear & tear although the records have not been played much. There are a few light scratches but they don't cause any surface noise. They might look quite obvious in a strong light for photographing but they are certainly not deep etched. Some of them do not appear on photos even with a strong light. Luckily Sgt. Pepper plays completely quiet without surface noise, however for Please Please Me, there are short burst of crackles on every song when they ends. I somewhat suspect the record was recorded like that, but probably not... It is very hard for me to put a price on these records so I thought I would seek help from SNA members again. What do you think they worth? Through which channel should I try to sell a special record such as these? If they don't worth much, then I probably won't sell them and try to think of something, or who they should go to... Please see photos and details in the following posts.
  15. High definition vinyl anyone? https://hdvinyl.org/ seems interesting - I hope something eventuates in the near future. I wonder if being that accurate if different stylus profiles would have any impact on the playback sound. It would certainly take the pressure off keeping old machinery (I don’t mean turntables) running and improve the environmental footprint. It might even mean tt setup gets easier.
  16. The video shows refurbished Quad 57's from the 1957 design in action with a Garrard turntable. It starts with a conversation that reveals the quality of he recoding gear and also the room timbre. Later the Quads start up. For playing acoustic music I dont think there's been any improvement in design in sixty years except for digital annihilating those annoying pops from records. Sixty years and where's the real progress? For sceptics that think Youtube playback cant possible reveal the quality of system please just move on. Disclaimer: I dont have Quad 57's or a turntable but I think Ive been conned.
  17. 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? thanks
  18. 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. Justin

  23. Hi All Are there any Project Primary E or Project Elemental users out there in Melbourne ? I have ressurected my original Pioneer A400X and Epos 11 speakers to start a second system during the ‘lockdown’. Using a Vincent Pho-8 phono stage The new turntable sits on an Ikea lack table, a Mission isoplat and addition 3mm EVA foam pads... the turntable is immune to foot traffic, i have a timber floor. The sound is very coherent and dynamic, and exceeded my expectation for a budget and well built tt. Derek
