  1. Given the budget and the fact you liked the Red anyway, it would probably make sense to give the Blue a go as it is a direct fit for the Red body and will likely keep a similar signature and give slight improvements to all areas. Graham Slee make good Phono stages, put it up on the Forum and let someone identify it. If it does do MC it would be worth experimenting later, perhaps starting with the Denon DL 103. (i think i saw one on ebay new for about $350 but that seemed cheap) Did you just get C31 from Max, i was chasing them but someone just got there first? Hope that helps a bit. Cheers Russell
  2. What would you consider spending? What phono stage are you using? Does it have mc capability? Also just to give me an idea of the system quality what speakers do you use?
  3. Further information: Project RPM 1.3 Turntable and Ortofon 2M Red Cartridge Excellent turntable, very good condition, If you're going to produce turntables at a good price as project do, then you need a good design, leave out what you don't need and focus on the parts that matter, and in my opinion Project do that great. I am not the first owner but when i purchased it the previous owner had hardly used it and the same has been true for me, so the cartridge has had little use and appears to be in good condition when studied with a magnifier. Sorry for the close up it is next to useless. The Deck is designed to have a round belt (about $25 to replace) It has a flat belt at the moment which is perhaps not right for the motor but i prefer the way it sits on the platter. I can't locate the round one. The cartridge is the Ortofon 2M Red MM, a really great cartridge. The whole package sounds very good, the turntable itself would suit further upgrades to the cartridge, despite the hype around spending more on an arm or turntable. I have the original box so postage should not be too difficult, it will be at your cost and risk. I would prefer local pick up for obvious reasons. A personal opinion: I have had and compared many, many turntables over the years and in my experience the matching of the cartridge and phono stage is by far the most important part of getting a good sound. The arm comes next. The actual turntable is the least important part. I could offer so many examples of this. We likely would never put an expensive arm and cart on this deck because we would tell ourself that the price of the deck does not warrant it. If you did though the difference between this and something more expensive would be minimal. It's a turntable and by nature of the vinyl you put on it they are musical.
  4. Inspired by your video and post I got my TOA amplifiers out. They have Hot Cold And Earth screw connectors. I altered an RCA to go hot and cold and then ran an earth wire somewhere. They sound pretty good, lots of power and space, maybe a little harsh but I haven't played around with it much. Not too sure what I,m doing but I was wondering if you have any advice or if this is something worth pursuing. Thanks

  8. Item: S606 5.1 HOME CINEMA SYSTEM Location: Perth Price: $700 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: No longer needed. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Awesome set of great value home cinema speakers. They have had very little use as they have been stored. The cabinets are in great condition with a tiny mark on the top corner of the floor standers that I only noticed when I took the pictures. Postage is possible but i guess pricey just because of the number of boxes. From the Web: With 1010 watt of total music power, the S 606 HCS 5 package offers excellent value for money but without compromises in design or sound. Give these speakers a listen and compare them to our competitors' products... we promise you will be surprised! The S 606 has a 1in tweeter, two 5in midrange drivers that ensures strong and clear vocals and instruments while the 8in side-mounted woofer delivers a deep, thunderous bass. The S 606 is fully equipped for optional bi-wiring, and bi-amplifi cation. Furthermore, the easily adjustable spikes ensure that the speakers always stand securely, making a good, stable mechanical contact with the floor. The centre and satellite speakers come with supplied wall mounts, of course, allowing terrific versatility when it comes to placement options. In closing, we should also mention that all the models in the S 60 series have removable front fabric grilles. You have the choice of leaving them on or off, but, just as importantly, it also shows that we have nothing to hide with these beauties... quite the opposite! The subwoofer has a 200 Watt amplifier and a longthrow 8in woofer housed in a bass-refl ex enclosure which gives this subwoofer a level of performance that is second to none. The auto on/off and controls for level, cut-off frequency and phase, together with both linelevel and high-level inputs, makes it easy to integrate with any speaker and room.

  9. HI Im interested i'll send you a PM Cheers Russell
  10. Listening to my Mirage 959is Speakers. Unique with the driver configuration, each speaker has two tweeters and two woofers, one pair firing forward and the other, a mirror image firing backwards. Tempted to say Bi Polar but i'm sure that means something else. Listening to the wonderful Youn Sun Nah - Same Girl.
  11. Item: Mirage 595i Floor Standing Speaker Location: Perth Price: $400.00 Item Condition: Very Good - Recently refurbished by a Technician. Reason for selling: No Longer Needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This speaker is very unique in that it had four drivers in each, two firing forward and the same configuration firing backwards. It is cover with a sock. It's a very nice looking speaker, looks a bit like a solid column. The drivers are all excellent having been recently refurbished. I believe Mirage are very underrated here in Aus and because of that you get a lot for your money. The sound is great, soundstage is and depth is very good, certainly producing plenty of detail. They work really well as front or rear speakers in a home cinema. (i have the centre speaker for sale too) With some toe in they centre the image very accurately. (which i find interesting given the more you toe them the more the back drivers face the opposite way, of course mirage know more about this than me and fortunately they have got this to work really well) I think more than anything the extra drivers help the speaker disappear, the image and space is really good. Post is possible but will likely be pricey, local audition is in Kardinya. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  12. Item: SME 3009 Fixed Headshell tonearm Location: Perth Price: $400ono including post within Australia Item Condition: Used with base plate missing and needing a rewire Reason for selling: Decided on a different direction. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is the fixed headshell 3009, i believe it is a MK2 (correct me if i'm wrong) It has the sliding base plate missing. It will need a rewire. And the counter weight does not look original to me. I was going to mount it to my deck but have decided to go in a different direction. I am open to offers and you will not offend. Also in the asking price postage within Australia is included. I think i have included all relevant information but check the pictures also. Thanks Pictures:
  13. Nice I like your style. Now i can sleep a bit longer and still put up a picture if i want.
  14. A rare opportunity to listen i the morning. The person who created this fabulous thread should change it's title to My System Today. All those in favour like this post😋. Anyway the speakers have had occasional use for about 4 months now. They always sounded good, they are still getting better and better though.
  15. Lets have a GTG and bring our wifes and the cats, tell them we are taking them out, all come to one of our houses. Give them a meal, introduce them, get them talking to each other. Then we can all sneak out and go back to someone elses house for a GTG. They probs won't notice we left.
