  1. I am not going to get into a great and unneccessary debate here but you have already up'ed your top end by $300 with absolutely no value assigned to anything else. Cab's $50-75 maybe $100?? I said a bit low on total value and thats what I was reffering to Anyway, and to finish, good luck to you powerslave. I hope it works out favourably for you in the end
  2. I think you guys are calling it a bit low on total value and being unsure of exact bass driver model. You will struggle to buy a good pair of simple old 2405's for anything significantly under $1000 in todays market. I have seen them for double that too.........and then there are the mids and bass drivers, crossover, even cabinets.
  3. he will build you a new one. S/h dont come up too often
  4. you should consider Elson Silva"s Cymer 13E1 single ended 27W for around $4500-5000 new. If you want silence, utter relaibility, drive, articulation, purity and great bass extension-take a good look. I have them driving 89db bookshelves with ease, 15" JBL/TAD bass drivers or big 3 ways with the 15" bass drivers. Alan
  5. Wow Roy Buchanan is some guitar player! Incredible. Watched a few of his other tracks-like Hey Joe and The Mesiah will come again. Very recommended listening
  6. Vashti Bunyan (now 75 yrs old and still recording. Her musical story is interesting and maybe not typical) album: Just another diamond day (from 1970) track: diamond day I have just discovered this artist by accident. Something in her fragile story telling resonated with me. Arrangements are simple but cohesive and musical. Worth a listen for English folk music genre enthusiasts
  7. great thread pov (Drew). I have read all the posts now from different perspectives and find them all extremely pertinent. Although, for me I dont see the time I will get rid of most or all of my current audio gear (which has expanded hugely over the last 25yrs into a vast excessive mass of stuff) or set ups, this thought process pov presents certainly makes me say that for me there need not be any more to amass. It will be more of a case of enjoying the music more and what the experience of listening to music produces for me and my wife. Enough is enough. It is time! Thank you for helping me get to the end
  8. everything is worth something and not everybody is at a point in their journey chasing the best ($$) t/t out there. For an audio enthusiast wanting to explore vinyl with a tight budget, then this might just fit the bill. I am thinking along the lines of aussievintage-with original plinth or better Dont be discouraged by nay sayers. Put it in the market and let them be the judge
  9. Springcreek. Really nice 12C and custome table there! The 12C seem to be a less common model of the CE t/t's? Have you had it running and playing records. If so, what does it sound like? I see you retain the grey light tower and have changed the 2 knobs. Those bakelite type knobs dont age well. Is that the 12C Duc restored for you? I have a very good condition original 12C (and 12B) and appreciate the design and styling go well and enjoy what it does
  10. the one he is asking. If its your best price you need, best to pm him
  11. talk to me on price is you are interested. Maybe we can work out a price and deal. I am keen to sell but need realistic price
  12. inside pics added for those who have asked for them
  13. Further information: made by Jeremy Fix in USA with vintage parts, industrial look. Is 240V, 1.5-2.5W putput. This is a great amp, vintage output transformers, nothing in signal path from resistor, tube and transformer. Recessed gold plated RCA/s, heavy gauge internal silver wire, vintage Allen Bradley and Holco resistors, Elna and Marcon caps, dual coil torroidal power transformer with solid state bridge rectification feeds 390mf Marcon caps, NOS Westinghouse choke stops hash. B voltage is low 218V so doesnt push tubes hard (can handle 400V). All grounds are star grouned, a grounded binding post on the back can be used to ground inout source. Air gapped output tranformers are copper shielded and oversized for excellent bass response. The tubes are cathode biased with US military PIO 0.22mf dual section caps playing the roll of bypass cap for each channel The amp produces pure, articulate full bodied rich music. A transformer output switch can adjust the load from 5 to 3.5K which adjusts the power slighlty and the sound. NOS 6C45Pi tubes included in the amp. Amp will run WE437A tubes with adaptors-I dont have adaptors or 437A tubes Now the not so good news. This amp was sounding great and quiet, then I took it to a guy to fix thw power switch and he changed the tubes. It came back with a hiss which is really annoying on 100db+ horns. It has new NOS tubes. I dont want to risk taking amp to this guy again and I have too much on my plate to mess any further.

  14. Further information: This is a superbly built and sounding DIY Hiraga clone of 30w Super Class A design. It was built by a very experienced Dan on DIY Audio. I bought it directly from Dan. It has quality parts and is well engineered. It sounds like it is too. 1.2 Farads capacitance, Cornell Dubilier caps. I have had it for a few years, used it sparingly and enjoyed it a lot on a variety of speakers I have owned. Has good power, dynamics and resolution. Only selling as I have many amps and am really a tube lover first. A link to the build and schematics can be found with a quick search. Chassis measures 430mm x 430mm x 230mm. I have just been playing this amp now on some averagely rated vintage Marantz 88db 3 ways and the Hiraga sounds extremely good from bass to treble! speakers are a bit stuffed too! Close offers may be considered Will be packed very soundly with great care.
