  1. Further information: This is an empty chassis with transformer and rectifiers only. The transformer is pretty big. I haven't pulled it out but it looks like it has 2 x 600 to 800 VA toroids on top of the other. it appears to be potted but I may be wrong. It has 2 x 40V, 2 x 66V and 1 x 10V taps. Rectified voltage is 63V DC (Vincent used 63V caps). The 66 and 10V taps were for the valve input stage. I will include the 4 missing speaker posts. Each heat sink is 170 x 400 x 49mm. It weighs 24.6kg as is. I have the original double box carton. It was a Vincent SP-331MK. I had planned on another monster amp that I don't really need. The front lettering is fading and should be easy to remove with alcohol. The white specks on the heat sinks and chassis are thermal paste smudges which seemed to show up more in the pictures. Preference to local buyers as it is bulky and heavy. The box measures 29x52x55 cm and would be around 28kg. ______________________________________________________________________________ ELECTRICAL DISCLAIMER This product has not been manufactured by a qualified individual or company, therefore contains electrical circuits that do not necessarily comply with Australian Standards.

  2. Thanks McC, Corian is pretty easy to work with. A table router and a handheld is necessary. You can cut with a jigsaw and I have found the right blade that worked really well - fine woodworking blade. The shavings break down to dust so you need to clean up regularly. It sands very easily. A bit too easily sometimes! Sound wise it walks all over wood. I have heard a Slate Lenco (SimonC) many years ago which was very good too. I have 2 large heavy wood plinths. Simon gave me a 19mm sheet of slate which I haven't used as yet. I have 2 layers of Corian left plus some smaller pieces which could go on the sides underneath. I plan to sandwich the slate with the corian. Nice contrast maybe. My table router has seized up and needs fixing. Pushed it a little too far after I heard the screams. I wouldn't bother with a wood plinth any more. Sien may have stopped making the top plates but he will make more bearings. Look around on gumtree for an old kitchen benchtop. Most of them have MDF glued to them. A dark or patterned colour may be easier to glue without the seams showing up. Regards, kffern
  3. This is what I was aiming for... Or working around... http://www.ptpaudio.com/solid9.html Kffern
  4. I thought I would share my new project. It uses a top plate and bearing made by Sien of SPH audio in Malaysia. Plinth is 5 layers of white Corian , feet are 3 layesr plus the spikes. Cost of Corian $20. After and before pictures below. I am very disappointed with the visible seams. I did small test jobs and they came out really well. Anyway, turn the lights down and sip a whisky and it doesn't bother me for a while. The feet are 3 layers glued with the same gorilla glue (clear) glue and cyanacrylate. Used both on the feet and both were close to perfect. I couldn't get Corian or any solid surface glue in Aust. I might have been able to ship from the USA but with current problems didn't want to risk it. Cost is a major issue at the moment. Working with it is meant to be difficult as it dries fast and is designed for edge jobs generally. If I were to do it again I would get a few more G clamps. The central bar clamp is essential as the G clamps cause the pieces to move. I glued the sheets one at a time using Gorilla glue clear. Titebond Instant bond Medium is a good cyanoacraylate but you only have 7 seconds work time. It sounds great. Very quite background. Still needs a bit of fettling as I'm getting a bit of idler noise that I didn't have with the previous wood plinth. Regards, kffern
  5. That looks more like a 1SC. I have one and quite like it. https://www.stereophile.com/standloudspeakers/386/index.html GLWTS, Kffern
  6. Further information: The motor and bearing run very smooth and quiet and the idler wheel is in good condition. It has the better steel version rather than the plastic wheel. The arm is non repairable with missing weight. I have a black original head shell. No platter mat included. Note that the B52 has the light weight platter, not the heavy one on the L75. The plinth has the spring base. I bought this a while ago with the intention of restoring and fitting a new arm but that is not going to happen.
  7. That's interesting. The project motor is 300 rpm and the original Thorens is 275 rpm at 50 hz. Can you tell me what the diameter of the pulley is or where you got it from? Wish you were closer and I was quicker. Regards Kffern
  8. Lenco Heaven Nigel's Speed Controller PCB For sale is a built and working Nigel Speed Controller PCB, set up for 33/45/78 speeds. See the second picture which was taken prior to disassembly. I built this a few years ago. It worked well and ran cool. I am changing to a Pyramid (DiyAudio) PS so will re-use the case and displays. Included is everything in the first picture. The only thing non standard is the voltage control pot which is 10k and not 20k. As set up it gives around 160 to 250 v adjustment. The heat sink was bolted to the case. It is the recommended size or greater and runs cool. https://www.lencoheaven.net/forum/index.php?topic=16910.0 Requires a 2x25v toroid, for the amp and 2 x 15v toroid for stepup. See third picture. My toroids were Overkill and will be reused. You will need new insulators as the keratherm I used ripped when I disassembled. I can provide the build instructions in pdf. Plenty of info and build help on LH site. Spare XR2206 chip included. Nearly all components were bought from Mouser/RS supplies. Pots from ebay. I might be interested in swapping for something interesting if local.

  9. The Kingssound speakers use a frame of aluminium u section for the perimeter with aluminium rods as horizontal ribs. The u section is 15 x 7.5mm, ribs probably 6mm. Sockets inserted in the frame to accept pins in the speaker. Works pretty well. Thanks for the updates. Maybe a closer look at the way you have wired the resistors might help. I use open baffle 15" drivers in my Kingsound as well. Works well down to 40Hz. Fly screen framing material could work. They have 90 deg corner joints. Regards, kffern
  10. Hi, I have been using this for over 2 years without issue. My daughter borrowed it and overwrote the 64g SD card with her music. It worked OK but a few days later it stopped seeing the SD card. Tried other sandisk cards and have the same problem. Formatted the SD card on a PC numerous times without luck. Has anyone come across this and has a fix? I see a few people reporting this problem out of the box and received a replacement. Thanks, kffern
  11. The original box is 35x32x11 cm and the whole thing weighs 1.3Kg. I could find a smaller box and save a bit of money. kffern
