  1. I've currently got two mono cartridges, a phono stage with a mono switch, and have in the past owned a dedicated mono phono stage with a turntable set up just for mono. I don't use any of them. The whole mono thing is overdone. First, it is really only an issue if you have mono records dating from before the early 60s. Mono records after that date were cut with stereo cutting heads, and play fine with stereo cartridges. If you do have genuine early mono records, there is some benefit in a mono cartridge but even these mono records should still sound fine with a stereo
  2. The RB2000 doesn't replace the PU7. I just wanted to hear the RB2000 since it has just returned from being re-wired, so have temporarily removed the PU7. On balance, I think the PU7 is still the better arm, although the RB2000 is extremely good and has its own strengths, particularly with the Cardas wire (which is also used in the PU7, BTW). I can think of a few much more expensive arms which don't sound as good as the RB2000. If I didn't have the PU7 I could very easily live with the Rega arm on the PTP turntable.
  3. Here is my PTP Solid 9 with the Rega RB2000 reinstalled in place of the Audio Origami PU7. I have just had the Rega arm re-wired with Cardas wire by Mark at Sonic Art in Melbourne @SonicArt. Mark also made up a number of spacers for the arm, since I needed some in the region of 6-7mm, which are taller than the ones normally available. I have just installed the arm and it is sounding great, with the sort of improvements I was hoping for from the re-wire. The standard wiring is good, but the Cardas wire adds more focus and tone colour, and removes much of the slightly smeared and dry
  4. The Audio Origami PU7 sounds superb on my PTP Lenco.
  5. I forgot to mention in the listing ... lowball offers will be ignored.
  6. The cartridge is tentatively sold, pending pick up and payment.
  7. I buy and sell frequently on SNA and I've lost track of the amount of appalling behavior I have encountered. Like the time I thought I had sold an expensive preamplifier, and I agreed to drive across Sydney for an hour to deliver it on a Sunday afternoon. Instead of just accepting it, saying thanks and paying me the agreed price, the "buyer" and a bunch of his friends plugged it in to their very expensive (and awful sounding) system, played music at deafening volume for an hour or so and then said no thanks, it didn't sound as good as they thought it would. I then had to drive anot
  8. For sale is my Dynavector XX2 cartridge, bought last year and used only briefly. It comes with all original packaging and materials and has been used for well under 20 hours. Pick up is available from the CBD or I am happy to post at the buyer's cost and risk.
  9. For sale is my Audio Technica AT33 Mono cartridge. This is an excellent mono moving coil cartridge which performs way of out of proportion to its price. It has been used only briefly - under 10 hours - and comes with all original packaging and materials. Pick up is available from the CBD or I am happy to post at the buyer's cost and risk.
  10. For sale is my Dynavector 20x2L low output MC cartridge. This was used briefly - less than 20 hours - and comes with all original packaging and materials. Pick up is available from the CBD or I am happy to post at the buyer's cost and risk.
  11. For sale is my Benz Ace SH high output MC cartridge. I bought this last year for a specific purpose which never ended up being realised. It has only a few hours of use and is near new. It comes with original packaging and materials. Note that as a high output cartridge, this should be used with a MM phono stage or low gain MC phono stage. Pick up is available from the CBD or I am happy to post at the buyer's cost and risk.
