  1. Thanks for the replies, will give it a decent crank tonight and see how it goes. Cheers
  2. Disastrous day last week; i had water leak through a roof skylight and water came down right on top of my setup and through my records. Luckily all of my records are in plastic sleeves, only ten record jackets sustained water damage (and only two of those will be tricky to replace). Water did go through my amp. I made sure all the water had dried, and I gingerly tested it last night and it seems to be ok. Any recommendations on what I should do in terms of ensuring there isn't any long term damage? I will be putting in an insurance claim for the shelf and the records, I will include the amp if required. Thanks!

    PO NOW: Blur - ‘Best Of’ reissue

    Any official word on when this has been delayed till?
  5. From the email about the presale. I missed this the first time round, so am happy to get a copy for $25 (I have definitely almost pulled the trigger on an OP for a lot more).
  6. Nick 13's self titled album is getting a reissue. Three variants: - Walnut /500 - Clear /500 - Black https://www.merchconnectioninc.com/collections/nick-13
  7. You're right, I have one and it's pretty bad. I would love to hear Suture Up Your Future on a well pressed disc.
  8. Jumping in on this thread, I have a Rotel RA-935BX (with a Pro-ject Phono Box preamp), which has a headphone jack built in (see below). Can I just use that, or would I need a separate head phone amp?
  9. Yeah, nah... https://www.ebay.com/itm/the-smashing-pumpkins-chicago-tapes-and-unreleased-demos-rare-vinyl/183457257798

    PO: Every Time I Die “Hot Damn”

    In my mind, I want this record, on the resell market it runs way more than that, so this seemed to be the cheapest way to get a mint copy. Also, I emailed Creep about some order details and they came back to me within a day, which helped set my mind at ease.
  11. How do the MOV pressings sound?

    Advice on KEF Q500's

    I found them on a second hand website, New Zealand's version of eBay. I tried the speakers out yesterday with some of my gear; I ended up not buying them. They really didn't provide a lot of extra bass over my Q100's and didn't seem worth the NZD $700 upgrade. I also found I had to drive them a lot harder to get them as loud as my Q100's. It could have been that we were testing them in a fairly big space, but they just didn't seem to be much of a step up. I also have my eye on some Q Acoustics 3050's, but that may be a similar scenario.
