yeah, 12.5kHz (3dB down, at that) is pretty horrible!
Call me cynical, but +/- 3dB = - 6dB at 12.5khz in my book

I wish I knew what happened to all the pressing equipment that got abandoned in Australia in the mid-90's!
Gathering dust most probably. The trick is to find them. Maybe there are 2 pressing houses in Australia, but there might be some small labels that do have one. I remember that around here, there was a specialised shop that got themselves an LP press and made during a few years LP's themselves. They stopped long ago, but there might be others. The yellow pages and a phone might be your best bet.

You don't mean the "Pavane" label by any chance?

Cheers,

Don't remember if they used a label name. Must be more than 15 years ago.

you mean you suspect that some manufacturers are sneaky, and graph the frequency response so that the peak of the loudest frequency is at +3dB, therefore the highest 'frequency response' becomes the point where the curve crosses -3dB?

anyway, thanks for the Yellow Pages suggestion, Havoc.

BTW, thanks for all those replies everyone, I enjoyed reading them!

Cool Vinyl use Final SCratch

The only reason to use diy vinyl is so that you can DJ with your own music on vinyl if you dislike CD players. For this purpose Final Scratch software is really the go.
