Technics SL-1200 mk2

I just got hold of my long desired Technics SL-1200 turntable . I have wanted one of these bad boys for many years. Now most people would want 2, but my desire has been for just 1. Why? well I have a DJ set up consisting of a Pioneer CDJ-200 and Denon DN-S3000 and Pioneer DJM-400 Mixer, that takes care of my DJ needs. I got theTechnics SL-1200 turntable to scratch with, for music production. Not being flush with cash I contacted my good friends down at DMC Records in Prahran, Lance and Stuart, who have looked after me with nearly all my music production gear. Now they advised me rather than buy a cheaper but new turntable, to get the industry standard Technics SL-1200 turntable used(2nd hand). I could have bought a new Pioneer or Numark deck through work, at cost, but I figured it was good advice, as the Technics SL-1200 turntable will hold its value and are a real workhorse, so should give me many many years of trouble free service. read full article here

Bimota Tesi 3D

Its Origins

This amazing and revolutionary bike has quite a history. The  Italian company is based in Rimini, was formed in 1972 by Bianchi, Mori and Tamburini. Massimo Tamburini crashed his honda CB 750 in the early 70s and decided that such a powerful bike needed a much better frame and so Bimota was born. Bimota had lot of success in its early days, fitting powerful motors ibto their superbly engineered frames, till basically the Japanese caught on and started making better frames for their bikes. read full article here

SONY MZ-RH1 Minidisc

I bought this unit about 18 months ago, and  no doubt some will be thinking *why would anyone buy a minidisc these days?*, so I’ll explain. I also own a 20gb hdd sony NW-HD5 which I have owned for many years. I use this model(NW-HD5) because I found the ATRAC3plus 352kb lossless compression was the best at the time. I use the MW-HD5  unit as my main source of music in my car. Its like having my own radio station that just plays the music I love. read full article here

URWERK WATCH

I would love to own an URWERK watch. These watches are revolutionary in design and unsurpassed in craftsmanship. The design reminds me of the legendary Curta manual calculator(see below), in that it is technically brilliant, yet awe inspiring in its execution. I love fine engineering and design and URWERK excels in both areas, as well as being a thing of beauty. Urwerk have a small team of 5 craftsman who will spend 3 years designing a watch and the company produce about 200 watches a year. read full article here
