  3. Item: Thales, DPS Turntable Location: Melb. Pickup only Price: $12500 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Not being used enough Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only ( Pickup only) Extra Info: This is the German Version of the Dps 3 turntable not the Ayre Version. The German version has massive 3 phase power supply as pictured. It is also approx $2000usd more expensive than the Ayre version. I have also got an extra top plinth and bearing assembly so you can have a second tonearm ready for a quick 5 minute changeover. The Thales Simplicity tonearm I purchase new from PMG group. Comes with Junction Box and Thales interconnect. Have got all original packaging for the Thales. Pickup only please for I dont have the original packaging for the DPS. Lyra and Ikeda Cart not included. Will be selling the Ikeda 9tt cart as well as a Koetsu Onyx cart in coming weeks. Pictures:

  6. Item: Van den hul Colibri xgp Location:melb Price: $1850 inc shipping and insurance Item Condition: Used approx 350hrs Reason for selling: Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased this Cart from Duc aka "Lovetube". He took the cart as a trade in. I was told that the previous original owner just had the Cart returned from Van Den Hul for its 300hr Free tuneup. I have since played about 20-30 hrs on it. Current RRP is $7500 aud https://vaf.com.au/collections/van-den-hul-cartridges/products/van-den-hul-the-colibri-series Selling because the cart is meant to matched with tonearm with 8-14 effective mass. I have a Thales simplicity arm with effective mass of 18 and on my other turntable a Ortophon arm with 20+ Effective mass. It sounds great already on the Thales, but the Thales matches better with my Ikeda/Koestu/Miyabi Carts. I was naive in thinking my Thales arm was a medium mass arm. By looking at its skinny construction, you would think its a light or medium mass. A Sme V for eg is built like a tank but effective mass is only 11. This cart would be ideal for Sme V or even Kuzma 4 point which is 14 effective mass. Another popular arm that would suit are Vpi at 10 Effective mass. This Colibri plays perfectly. Cantilever is dead straight and diamond in great condition. Van Den Hul states his stylus can last up to 4000 hrs. The close of pics below shows the diamond. The Blob between the stylus and cantilever is not gunk. It is the bonding material used by Vandenhul. Not for the faint hearted. This cart is nude with no Stylus guard. Please ask any questions.

  9. Item: Audio Note P1 Location:Melb Price: $3400 + Shipping Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: 10 watts not enough for my speakers. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Selling this fabulous Audio Note P1 amp which has been hot rodded to the max. This amp was last serviced in 7th of July 2015 when the volume pot and Choke was installed. Cost of Volume pot, Choke and Service was $1200 from Eddie Lee Amp is about 12 years old. Below is the message I received from previous owner. I have replaced the telefuken output tubes with better sounding Mullards. Signal Tubes are Diamond plate Tele 12ax7s Hi Peter, I don't know how much I would sell it because I spent lots of $ to upgrade parts. it's a part of my collection that's why I threw $ in it. I'm into phono & had blown my budget, currently I need a good phono preamp & good SUT. If you have a good phono, we can exchange. For your information, Parts I had upgraded so far: 1) 2w tantalum $30 each X 22, plus labour 2) all silver plugs $70 each X 8 3) silver wires $140/m, can't remember how many metres. 4) Blackgates cost over $3k(most expensive is Blackgate WKZ about $800each. 5) Tantalum steps Attenuator $500 6) NOS telefunken $600/quad (argued best EL84 with very low hours) can be test if needed. 7) silver caps (can't remember how much I paid) 8) Choke for Slow Turn on. ....I can't remember what else I had thrown in it.... Need to open to check. Please check photos of parts. You know about Audio Note UK, high quality parts are very important, higher level has higher quality parts & so the cost. All these upgrades are not including the labours. I know whatever I threw in it, I can't get it back. If interested, we can do exchange for your gears, in case you don't like it, you can always return it to me. My Amp has extremely low signal/noise ratio & upgraded by Eddie Lee (Audio Note certified service in Aus over 25 years & one of best tube electrician in Sydney, also upgraded by Bryan from Audio Note Australia). It has almost no hiss/hum with my 109db speakers, deadly quiet & sound very nice.
