    G'day Sean, I had some 240V/240V isolation transformers custom made up by Rolf at Siros Electrical Engineering in Richmond a few years ago. Not what you are after, but he may be able to assist with a custom build. Ph: 9428 4849 Cheers, Chris.
  2. G'day Aertex, I've sent you several PM's this week but had no answer. Is the arm still available? Can you let me know either way. Cheers, Chris.
  3. I have added some new photos of the arm and cable, in response to several enquiries.
  4. Item: Audiomods Series 5 Micrometer Tonearm Location: Melbourne, South-eastern Suburbs Price: $1000.00 Negotiable Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Funding for Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this arm new from Jeff in 2012. It is finished in frosted silver, with gold counterweight & highlights. It has a continuous Cardas copper loom, from cartridge pins to Nakamichi RCA plugs - the cable is approximately 900mm in length. I would say that it has had no more than 200 hours use. It comes complete with the numbered wooden box, and all associated shims, counterweights, manuals etc. Local pickup is preferred, but I am happy to post at buyer's expense. Pictures: Apologies for the picture quality! .
  5. Images added. Apologies for the quality - old bloke driving an old phone!
  6. G'day Calax, The Audiomods uses the same mounting as early Rega RB arms. Threaded shaft needs a 23mm hole. Cheers, Chris.

  8. Hi All, Has any member had experience with the Grado Reference Sonata line of cartridges? If so, can you provide your views on the sonic variations between the versions. From what I can glean the latest (version 2) is about 3 grams heavier than the previous versions (10.00 grams), and there have no doubt been electrical and mechanical improvements. Any information gratefully accepted. Chris.
  9. AJ, Can you please confirm the voltage?
  10. G'day Ben, john.reekie is spot on. I bought these switches as input selectors - up to 6 inputs can be attached to each switch. But, they are single deck switches, so you would need a switch for each channel (2 for stereo / dual-mono). You would normally use shorting switches for volume control / attenuation, otherwise you would hear nothing between switch positions as you turned the knob. The Seiden switches I have for sale would be more suitable for building attenuators - either utilising resistors or transformers depending on your preference. Hope this helps. Cheers, Chris.
  11. Item: 1 pair of Phantom Cables XLR to RCA Location: South-eastern Suburbs - Melbourne Price: $150.00 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only, or happy to post at buyers expense Extra Info: I purchased these cables from Leading Edge Audio (Mike Kontor) to run from balanced outputs on a CD player to my preamplifier's unbalanced inputs. The cables are 600mm in length. I no longer have a need for this topography. I believe the cables are constructed from several runs of silver conductors. Female XLR Connectors are RS Online. RCA Connectors are Neotech. Pictures: Apologies for the picture quality - it was late in the evening and I think the red wine has had an influence!
  12. Item: 2 x Seiden 23-Position Rotary Switches Location: South-eastern Suburbs - Melbourne Price: $120.00 for the pair Item Condition: New, Unused Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only, or happy to post at buyers expense. Extra Info: These are high-quality Japanese mono switches that mate beautifully with Silk Audio Transformers in a TVC passive setup. I bought these to use in a dual-mono passive, but ended up heading in a slightly different direction.
