    Greetings from cold sunny Brisbane

    Bloody cold last night out at Ipswich as well. Happy to help with the turntables as well (I'm well versed with the "darkside") 😉 cheers, Andrew

    Cambridge 740A dc error

    Actually, we did finally manage to resurrect it (No thanks to Cambridge Audio who do not stock spares for this model amp) by disconnecting the faulty protection system. But I can't trust the amp now, so it's gathering dust in my study.

  12. Our Christmas in July party (and AGM) will be held again this year thanks to Peter and Tracey A kindly offering to host. This party is open for all members and their families. It has been good to see in previous years more wives partners and children at these events as the mid-year party is more a social gathering than a audiophile event and one that everyone can enjoy. All that needs to be brought along are your favourite drinks for the afternoon. We will also be holding our annual AGM at this meeting and as such all committee positions will be available and up for voting (financial members only).

    FS: GRACE 707 TONEARM

    Item: Grace 707 tonearm Instructions, mounting template, head shell lift & screws and arm rest included with original box. Comes with Sigma acoustics tonearm cable (from Israel - $190). Location: Ipswich QLD Price: $450 Item Condition: VGC - NOS imported from New Zealand. Less than 25 hours use on Linn LP12 turntable. Reason for selling: Upgraded to Kuzma Stogi. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: An elegant low mass arm with precision gimbal bearings. Ideally suited to medium or high compliance MM carts. Floats freely in all planes with the cueing device fully functional. The use of a 6mm diameter light alloy pipe eliminates unwanted resonances. In order not to distort the mid frequencies, because of dead mass, the arm is provided with a non-interchangeable acrylic head shell. This is an integral part of the entire arm, however, changing cartridges can still be easily achieved. A high precision double gimbal pivot is used on the G-707. The gimbals use aircraft instrument micro pivot bearings to reduce friction resistance to less than 20 milligrams. The balancing of the arm is done by sliding and turning the weights in steps of 0.1g. Also, by use of the slide feature, cartridges varying in total weight between 4.5 and 12.5g can be perfectly adjusted. A bias adjuster is also incorporated, and used both the rotating lever and weighted string principle to achieve perfect tracing of the record grooves. Specifications Overall length: 313mm Effective length: 237mm Arc of movement: approx. 80 degrees Stylus overhang: 15mm Bearing friction: less than 20mg Stylus pressure adjustments: 0.1g Suitable cartridge weight: 4.5 to 12g Had previously mounted Audio Technica ATX150MLX cartridge. Replaced LP12 sub-chassis and armboard with CFTech carbon fibre units and fitted Kuzma Stogi tonearm with Audio Technica Art 9 cartridge. Also fitted SRM/Tech Silent Base acrylic base. Linn Sondek LP12 Armboard also available. Pictures:
