  1. I have seen this happen befor on Gumtree. Guy gets a few enquiries and then puts the price up!!
  2. I did not see the discount code. That is a really good deal. Perhaps you could post a mention of it in the Turntable thread. Looks very similar to a P1 and a lot cheaper
  3. Still a good deal compared to a Rega P1, but link appears to indicate price is AU $414.95?
  4. JANSZEN Z30 High END- ELECTROSTATIC SPEAKERS - Excellence Cond $350 could be a bargin. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/richlands/speakers/janszen-z30-high-end-electrostatic-speakers-excellence-cond/1145598756
  5. Hi Lee I am in Brisbane and currently have a near new Stanton T92 listed on ebay. opening bid $175 buy it now $250 . The cheapest price for this TT new is currently $449. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/142354198036?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 This TT came with a record collection I purchased and had only been used to transfer the collection to digital. You have the option of using the in built phono and when you decide to up grade you will probably be able to recoup all your out lay. I have a Rega Planar 2 for my main TT. Afraid it is not for sale.
  6. Yes interesting to see this with Australian connection. There is also one listed on ebay in Russia ! http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Commonwealth-Electronics-12-D3-Transcription-turntable/112365616375?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D43269%26meid%3D664cb43787814ec690de18c0919726e7%26pid%3
  7. Ortofon starting bid $150 BIN $200 http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Ortofon-2m-bronze-/262943262461?hash=item3d38a3c6fd:g:9fQAAOSw5UZY9vDT
  8. Well that makes the Jorgen an even better buy at over $300 cheaper.
  9. Although I am usualy happy to take a chance with pre loved gear, the Yamaha A-S201 integrated amplifier recomended by @PeterD is presently on sale at Adicted to Audio in Sydney for $344 https://addictedtoaudio.com.au/products/yamaha-a-s201-stereo-amplifier?variant=16063963523&gclid=CP2x55Skr9MCFZIJvAodUKwA0A That would leave you about $450 to spend on a second hand TT
  10. Your friends set up has a nice vintage look to it, but I do not think he would be able to achieve $800 if selling ,more like $500 ,for all the items together, on a good day. The Audio Reflex is not a great Direct Drive TT and would have been considered an entry model when new about 1976 . You could get a better amp and TT for $800.
  11. The second hand jorgen ami t 500p for $160 fully serviced, with a reasonable cartridge ,IMO would be by far the better buy . The Jorgen is a solidly made TT and has adjustments so different carts can be fitted. The new audio technica at lp60 is a poor, light weight TT that you are likely to be disappointed by. Also the audio technica at lp60 will be worth less that the Jorgen as soon as you leave the store but the Jorgen will retain and probably increase in value over time.
  12. The QC15s couldn’t be used without power but, the QC25s can run passively. You don’t need power to listen if you’re happy to make do without the noise cancellation and the built-in amp.
  13. If you search sold items on ebay you will see about 10 that sold for between $100 and $200 http://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=NAD 5120 turntable&LH_Complete=1&LH_Sold=1&rt=nc&_trksid=p2045573.m1684 As this is not a sort after TT ,if it is new in the box, I would say $250 would be a good price to achieve. New old stock is only likely to make a big difference to the value for a collectable TT such as a Linn or Thorens.
  14. I am with al on this. The amount of pressure, due to the leverage of the leg, that could rip a hole in laminex, will never be resisted by any glue. Get a metal plate that is larger than the present hole and screw it to the table and then screw the leg to the metal plate. Or you could bolt the leg through the plate and the table with round headed bolts.
  15. "...... A collection of around 500 LP's for $1500" Unfortunately I must be looking in different places to you.
