  1. ITEM: SME Series III S tonearm with Grado cartridge (cart model unknown) LOCATION: Wynnum, Brisbane CONDITION: Visually excellent. Un-tested. See description for details. DESCRIPTION: This tonearm was attached to a Thorens TD-160 turntable from new. I have had this as a project-in-waiting for a year and have not had the opportunity to use the tonearm because the original plinth was crumbly and the stylus on the Grado cart, un-useable. It is in excellent physical condition. Few tarnish spots on baseplate. Everything moves smoothly and all adjustment screws in excellent condition. Includes tonearm thread weight. Lead counterweights are loaded into the arm, presumably to match the Grado cart, and there are a couple of extra weights as pictured. Also includes tiny metal adjustment spanner. Don’t know which stylus suits the Grado but the original one is on it. Reason for selling. Financial commitments exceed income. PRICE: $650 (reduced. Originally listed for $750) PAYMENT METHODS: Cash on pick-up, Paypal. EXTRA INFO: Can post/courier. PHOTOS:
  2. ITEM: THORENS TD-165 Turntable LOCATION: Wynnum, Brisbane CONDITION: Overall running well but has occasional drop out issue due to worn tonearm socket for headshell (pins on headshell have stretched their sockets on tonearm). Will probably need a new arm unless there is a way of fixing it. Other than that, it is physically great and well maintained and has new custom made acrylic lid. Ex-University of Qld Music and this is etched on front alum plate near cueing switch RH side. DESCRIPTION: Selling this turntable on behalf of non-internet savvy friend who can’t afford a new arm for it. Currently has Stanton 500-II cart on it. Is well serviced and had new RCA cable fitted not long ago. Sounds great but has an intermittent channel drop out which is likely caused by stretched headshell pin sockets in tonearm. A clever person may have a simple fix for this, or you may just want to put an upgraded arm on it. REASON FOR SELLING: Not sure how to fix tonearm issue and owner does not want to buy new tonearm for it. PRICE: $500. $450 $400 PAYMENT METHODS: Cash on pick-up, Paypal. EXTRA INFO: Close to being a great turntable with a bit more TLC. PS. I am also selling an SME 3009 Series III arm on SNA, which would probably be a good match on this deck. PHOTOS:
  3. Update: Includes original tiny spanner (just found it).
  4. ITEM: SME Series III S tonearm with Grado cartridge (cart model unknown) LOCATION: Wynnum, Brisbane CONDITION: Visually excellent. Un-tested. See description for details. DESCRIPTION: This tonearm was attached to a Thorens TD-160 turntable from new. I have had this as a project-in-waiting for a year and have not had the opportunity to use the tonearm because the original plinth was crumbly and the stylus on the Grado cart, un-useable. It had not been used for some years according to its original owner, but appears to be in excellent physical condition. Few tarnish spots on baseplate. Everything moves smoothly and all adjustment screws in excellent condition. Includes tonearm thread weight. Lead counterweights are loaded into the arm, presumably to match the Grado cart, and there are a couple of extra weights as pictured. Also includes tiny metal adjustment spanner (not pictured). Don’t know which stylus suits the Grado but the original one is on it. Reason for selling. High compliance carts are too expensive a realm for me to get into right now. PRICE: $750 neg. PAYMENT METHODS: Cash on pick-up, Paypal. EXTRA INFO: Can post/courier. PICTURES: Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  7. Item: Vincent SV-129 Integrated Amplifier Location: Brisbane SE, Bayside Price: $400 $375 $350 Item Condition: Excellent working condition. Clean sound. Recently lubed inputs and controls. Couple of blemishes on bass/treble knobs and the usual tarnish to RCA inputs. Reason for selling: No longer required. Replaced with another amp more suited to needs. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal. Extra Info: Great amp with good dynamic power capability and detail. I have used a few Vincent products and find them incredible audio value for money. My last two main amps have been Vincent for over 10 years and I tried many popular audiophile amps in the $2k to $3k range before deciding on Vincent on each occasion. My main amp is still a Vincent. Remote control included (sorry, forgot to get a picture of it) BYO speakers for demo if preferred. COURIER Interstate $25 for most. Pictures:
