  5. Guys, Any of you using this super rare cart/preamp module? I have one on a LINN LP12 on ADC arm. I find the output of the strain gauge pre into my preamplifier on the low side.(ie, not enough gain) Just had the cart retipped by Decibel Hifi. Any comments of similar experience? Cheers:

  10. Item: ACOUSTIC RESEARCH AR12 large bookshelf speaker pair. Location: Keysborough VIC 3173 Price: SOLD Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Great sounding vintage AR12 speaker pair with refoamed woofers, and midrange drivers. Unfortunately, the tweeters could not be saved, and are hard to get, so I substituted them with SEAS metal dome tweeters. Tweeters were matched perfectly, and will say that they sound as good or better than original. They do sound very impressive, and can audition for serious SNA members. The factory midrange drivers in these are of exceptional quality. Cabinets, and grilles in excellent condition for age. These are a sealed box design. Pictures:
  11. Item: DYNAUDIO Contour 2 floor standing speaker pair Location: Keysborough VIC 3173 Price: $1700 Firm. No postage Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Had these speakers for a couple of years. Very capable 3 way compact floorstanders. Variovent loaded for fast, deep bass with lots of texture. Superb, typical neutral Dynaudio sound. Great slam, and dynamics. Crossovers recapped by previous owner with improved caps (pictured) He also converted them to bi-wire, which I then converted back to factory configuration. Work perfectly, with some blemishes, scratches and dings. Some veneer damage around one of the tweeters, but not noticeable unless you look closely. Sizes: 1030H x 220W x 290D. About 20Kgs each.

  12. Now on hold, potentially sold on Ebay.

Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I love these speakers. Very impressive speakers for the money. Great soundstage. I had these for a couple years, and bought them from the original owner who had them in storage for the past 20 years. Foam surrounds redone imported from the US, as you cannot get them here. Crossovers, and horn drivers improved, and refurbished as per this upgrade: http://www.levlhed.com/docs/tier1.pdf These really sound good especially on the floor, slightly tilted up. No need for stands. Pictures:
