  1. Item: Rotel RA-810 amplifier. Location: Brisbane SE Bayside Price: $450 $400 Item Condition: Excellent. Reason for selling: The usual. Making space and finances for more gear. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal. Extra Info: Time for someone else to enjoy this wonderful vintage amp. During the few years I've had it the amp has been well cared for, fully serviced and electrolytic capacitors replaced with Elna Silmic II on power circuit, phono preamp, toneboard, main preamp and power amplifier. Main power filter capacitors remain as they function well within original tolerance. Demonstration available. You are welcome to BYO music and/or speakers if preferred. My impression of the sound: Strong, sweet, clean, well-balanced. A useful feature for vinyl enthusiasts is 2 x Phono inputs with Phono 2 allowing adjustment of both Impedance and Input Sensitivity. Main amplifier and preamplifier separable via bridging pins so you can use preamp and main amplifier independently for added system options. Versatile tone adjustment options with independent bass/treble sliders, loudness, high and low pass filters and the ability to bypass tone controls altogether for direct unfiltered sound. MAIN SPECIFICATIONS: Power Amplifier Section Total Music Power (IHF): 180 watts at 4 Ω; 125 watts at 8 Ω Continuous Power (RMS, both channel driven, THD less than 0,5%): 60 watts/channel at 4 Ω; 40 watts/channel at 8 Ω Harmonic Distortion: less than 0,3% (20 -20,000 Hz at 40 W/ch) Intermodulation Distortion: 0,1% at 40 W/ch Frequency Response: 4 to 75,000 Hz; +0 -3 dB Power Bandwidth (IHF): 5 to 50,000 Hz at 8 Ω Input Sensitivity/Impedance: 1 V/30 k Ω Damping Factor: 35 at 8 Ω Speaker Impedance: 4 to 16 Ω Pictures:
  2. Could be faulty cartridge as suggested or headshell/tonearm wires not connecting properly to cartridge.
  3. Final price drop $350.
  4. Price drop. Now a crazy $375
  5. Item: TANNOY DC-1000 Bookshelf Speakers Location: Brisbane SE. Condition: Excellent condition. Drivers working well. Checked by Brisbane Speaker Repairs prior to sale. Cabinets cosmetically excellent for age with no corner bumps or dents. Few superficial hardly visible scuffs on top of one – see pic. Couple of driver screw heads have a bit of corrosion. Grilles excellent with no broken tabs. Grille cloth good but missing grille badges. Price: $450 $400 $375 $350 Reason for Selling: Post Christmas bills. Payment methods: Cash on pick-up Pick up details: Pick up Wynnum, Brisbane. Not keen to courier these but may re-consider if local buyer not found. Extra info: The DC-1000s feature the same 2025GG dual-concentric driver as in the floor-standing models in the series. The Tannoy DC range began my adventure into hi-fi and I was blown away by the detail from the dual-concentric drivers and hooked on hi fi from then on. They sounded sweet with an Audiolab 8000A and matched well for my ears with this mellow English amp. Tried them with a brighter modern Vincent and a bit more fatiguing. Locals are welcome to bring own amp to see if it is a good match for you. I love these with jazz, acoustic instrumental and vocals particularly, but they can exercise muscle when they need to. These are all original and un-modified. Had them checked prior to sale by Brisbane Speaker Repairs and all good. Here are specs from Hifidatabase.com (can’t guarantee their accuracy). Recommended amplifier: 10 - 120 Watts Sensitivity: 90dB Nominal impedance: 8 Ohms Frequency response: 48Hz - 25kHz Crossover frequency: 2.3Khz Enclosure: Ducted port Internal volume: 17L Dimensions: 248 x 497 x 205mm (Width x Height x Depth) Weight: 8.1kg Year: 1988 - 1991 Pictures:

    Agree with all the above posters. Great sounding turntable for the money and cart-changing options too.

    To clamp or not to clamp?

    Or try the budget version - blob of Blu-tak
