  1. Item: Reed 2A Tonearm, with Wenge Armwand & Azimuth Adjustment Price Range: Realistic, depending on condition Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I am in the market for a Reed 2A tonearm, with the lower Effective Mass Wenge armwand and Azimuth Adjustment. Preference is for a local (Melbourne) seller, but I will happily consider offers from regional / interstate. Let me know if you can help. Cheers, Chris.
  2. Item: Morch DP-6 Tonearm Price Range: Sensible, relative to the condition of the arm. Item Condition: Used. Extra Info: I am looking for a Morch DP-6 with 10.5 inch arm wand in excellent condition. Preference is for the Chrome finish with a Precision Red Dot (6 gm) arm wand, but I am willing to consider what you have to offer. If there is one available in Melbourne that would be ideal, but I am happy to cover postage for a regional / interstate sale. Let me know what you have!
  3. 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.
  4. I have added some new photos of the arm and cable, in response to several enquiries.
  5. If you want a new dust cover, contact Tom at Speakerbits - he usually has some available. Cheers, Chris.
  6. Item: Furutech AG-12 Phono Cable Price Range: Negotiable Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking for the straight DIN to RCA version. Ideally I'd like to get my hands on a Silver Audio Silver Breeze but just can't justify the additional expense at this stage, so the Furutech looks like a good alternative. Let me know what you have lying idle. Cheers, Chris.
  7. 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! .
  8. Images added. Apologies for the quality - old bloke driving an old phone!
  9. G'day Calax, The Audiomods uses the same mounting as early Rega RB arms. Threaded shaft needs a 23mm hole. Cheers, Chris.
  10. Item: Audiomods Series 5 Micrometer Tonearm Location: Melbourne, South-eastern Suburbs Price: $1000.00 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. I got Jeff to wire it with a continuous Cardas copper loom, from cartridge pins to Nakamichi RCA plugs - the cable is approximately 900mm in length. 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.

  11. Hi, Thanks for your pm. I am not interested in low output MC cartridges at this stage. Cheers.
  12. 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.
  13. Item: Ortofon 2M Black Price Range: Negotiable Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking for a low-mileage or unused 2M Black for my daughter's setup. Local pickup (Melbourne South-eastern suburbs) is preferred, but happy to pay p&h for interstate sellers.
  14. AJ, Can you please confirm the voltage?
  15. 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.
