  1. Streaming now! (But I'm in New Zealand - we're in the future)
  2. I ordered the Pearl Jam 7" from their online store. I haven't heard of them before, but took a chance. Are they reliable?
  3. Thanks @thischarmingham! Picked up Coral Fang. Unfortunately Pearl Jam was sold out, hopefully Amoeba will have some online.
  4. Ok, so Record Store Day is over in New Zealand. No copies of Coral Fang even made it to NZ and the few copies of Pearl Jam - State of Love and Trust 7" that came in sold out almost instantly. If anyone would be willing to pick me up the Distillers Coral Fang and PJ - State of Love and Trust 7" - PM me, that would be awesome. I will add a bit extra on for fees and your time. Shipping would be to Portland OR (It will be shipped to me in NZ from there). Thanks team.
  5. Posting for the star. Agree with the #1 anticipated call
  6. Bronx V is being recorded now... fingers crossed something happens; I really want Bronx I and III needs a pressing.

  8. This! I'd take a repress of The Bronx I while we're at it; can't justify the cost of an OP.

  10. Mine arrived in New Zealand this week (all 3 are /100 pressings). Apart from the pretty flimsy card stock for the jackets, they have come up really nicely. I have only listened to Magnetic North so far, and it sounds good. This afternoon I'll sit down and listen to my OP TSY vs. the repress.

  12. I've been thinking about playing around with pre-amps to see if I can get a warmer/more bass heavy sound and thought about testing the waters with a tube pre-amp. Here's my setup: Pro-ject P1.2 w/ Ortofon 2M Blue - Pro-ject Phono Box - Rotel RA-935BX - KEF Q100 Here is a cheap pre-amp I was looking at: http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1259088939 I see a lot of specs listed, but it may as well be a foreign language to me :/ Would that pre-amp be able to cope with the 2M Blue? Would it likely be an improvement on the standard Pro-ject Phono Box? To make life easier, below are the specs one under the other:
