        No worries, I think I've listed a website of a bloke that does repairs etc up in West Perth should you ever need services like that.

          I have the Robocop soundtrack on Vinyl, I saw it in a second hand shop in Vancouver and carried through the US for 5 weeks. Am I strange?

                If you have no fucking idea about turntables and you want to mix I'll give you one important little tip.
                Buy direct drive.
                That is all.

                    If you don't own any records or a turntable, why would you want to "get into it"?
                    Click here to see my Ducati 999R in the PSB garage... You'll love it!

                    Don't click here to see my ZX9R aka The Ginger Ninja... there's no link!

                        A place worth checking out for records is Dada Records in Pier St in the CBD, between Hay St and Murray St.
                        They often have old turntables for sale and plenty of good advice and plenty of rare stuff also

                        Another viable alternative is the Audio Technica LP 120 direct drive turntable. They retail for about $500 but you can get them cheaper if you shop
                        around. It is a really well built unit with everything you need.

                        Another option is to buy a vintage turntable such as this one I am currently stalking on ebay

                        They say money can't buy happiness. But you can use it to buy a Triumph and you never see sad people riding Triumphs.

                          The rocker dude upstairs in Dada's is funny. Everytime I go in there after buying records elsewhere I leave them at the counter, he looks through them and proceeds to try and advise if he could have done them cheaper.

                            [MENTION=23251]]magneto[[/MENTION] - what's your budget for a turntable?
                            It didn't look that far on the map...
