  1. OK, sorry to mislead but the SB-7000 are 845 X 480 X 410, so they are not the same. I have researched a little bit and it was the Technics-7 that was the same as the SB-7000. Interesting looking speaker though. Ken
  2. I have a vague recollection that the SB-007 was a number used for original sales in Japan, when the speaker reached the rest of the world it was known as the SB-7000. But the early 80's comment confuses me as I heard them around 1977. Maybe if you list the dimensions it could be compared between the 007 & 7000. Personally I love the looks and having only heard them once in the past I would love to hear again. I have often thought about buying a pair to see if my memory was playing tricks after all this time. Ken
  3. Now sold, thanks for all the interest.

  12. Item: Accuphase DP-80L CDT Location: Perth Price: $325.00 (plus postage - it is heavy) Item Condition: For repair Reason for selling: Clearing the Cupboard Payment Method: Pickup - Cash or Direct Bank Transfer Only Extra Info: A number of years ago I bought off E-bay an Accuphase DP-80L CD Transport, at the time my dream machine. When I received it all looked OK, however my DAC was away for an upgrade so I could not try it out. When my DAC returned I tried the pair however I discovered that the DP-80L was faulty. Too late to complain to E-bay, or the seller, however I later discovered that the seller was probably aware of the problem when he sold it. I put it in the storage cupboard along with many other boxes and thought one day!!!. It looks as though it needs a new laser mechanism, also I noticed today that the disc drawer seems slower to open/close that I remember, however it was a long time ago. Anybody that fancies a project to make good what is still an excellent Transport. It is in excellent condition overall with original remote. There is a mark on the left hand side wooden cheek, however I am not a good enough photographer to capture it. Pictures:
  13. Item: Parts from an Oracle Turntable Location: Perth Price: As Detailed below Item Condition: As Detailed below Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Bank Transfer Extra Info: For anybody looking to build your own turntable. Many moons ago I bought off E-bay an Oracle Alexandria MK III Turntable. It had been fitted with an Origin Live SAM Standard Motor Kit. However the white metal suspension was damaged in transit, luckily it was insured and I got some of my money back. I put it in the storage cupboard along with many (many many) other boxes and thought one day, when I retire, it would make a good project. Well the number of projects in the cupboard grew to more than I will ever be able to complete. Now it is time to thin the amount of projects outstanding. The following are for sale: Suspension pillars including springs with height adjustable feet, these have the genuine Oracle Suspension Kit fitted that have never been used, current price for just a new basic Kit without springs is $340.00. Asking $145.00 Origin Live SAM Standard Motor Kit, as new, could be used on any belt drive Turntable. Current new price is approximately $450.00. (The wall wart power supply has a UK plug, but an Australian adaptor is included). Asking $290.00 Oracle Platter, Bearing, new Belt and Clamp. The Clamp has a slight mark, otherwise all in excellent condition. As a comparison only, Oracle new replacement prices are approximately (some may be a different edition) ; Clamp - $495.00 Belt - $49.50 Felt Mat - $155.00 Bearing - $300.00 Asking $240.00 The Alexandria main body in gloss black $90.00 Pictures:
