And at $320?

Surely worth it for the groovy design, graphic EQ and use of gothic lettering alone.

That's what I'm after. Cheers!

Who cares if it sounds patu. It looks like it's from 1980! Should suit your retro hard rock bands well.

$320, that's a steal, buy that shit.

I can take it up to Clarry for a tidy up the same time I take your VBL if you like bro?

Dead keen to get my hands on a Holden 100 (or something very similar) when I actually have the need for a grunty valve amp. Hopefully they're not all snatched up by every hardout cunt playing loud rock music in NZ by then. Surely, as the interest in these things becomes more apparent people will continue to flog off some beaten up ones buried in garages and shit around the country. I know Alan at Anvil has completely restored a 200 (and I don't know but I'm sure Clarry's done a bunch of similar work), so as long as he's in business there'll be at least one person around who can bring these things back to life.

You can take my 50-watter if you want. Pretty clean condition and retubed/serviced by Clarry last year, haven't seen much use after that. I'd rather it goes to a bandmate so I can borrow it back when I really have to. :lol:

obvs its gonna go for more than 90 hucks,but this would be means as for under 400.

I'd avoid anything holden did containing SS bits-the tonal equivalent of a glass of water with some pubes around the rim.FWIW that model and the dc208 were average as shit.I also had a wierd ass wasp that had a tube power amp and a SS pre,the reverse of what most amp makers do.

Rad, how much did you spend? I'm going to grab a decent record player set up at some point, but will probably be forever waiting to be able to afford the next one better..

What a bastard. Expensiiiive but that stuff will last you forever.

I'll probably get a similar record player, a shitty amp to start with, and maybe I can convince a friend to sell me his speakers.
He finished his first set but I know he's not completely happy with it, maybe I can convince him he needs to make himself some better ones. We'll see! Some of the upper end DIY speakers are crazy good, but it takes a heap of work, that I'm not willing to put in >.>

damn, that's a nice little set up J. Love the amp.

I'm still using a Pioneer A400 with my Pro-Ject as it's a clean amp.

Love the vinyl!!

We have that turntable too, it's the perfect first "good" table. I think we'll upgrade at some point, but no hurry.

That's a really pretty amp!

Do the cables improve or affect the sound much? Always wondered if it's worth it.

Oi J you wont hear a difference. One problem will be trying to change over the cables quick enough so your brain is still in tune with what you heard previously.

The best speaker cables are power chords.

Power cord..

A $20 heavy duty extension cord has 7.5mm^2 or copper/cable, those $750 cables have 1.65mm^2 Cu/cable....
Any potential improvements from this snake oil: "Purple Flare employs 14 silver-plated 99.9999% OFC solid-core conductors." will be swamped by the extension lead having 450% more conductor...
