  1. I use a step-down with my ex-Japan Sun SV-2A3 amp. Toei Henseki tx 220-240V/100VA -> 100V. Never had any reason to think that it degrades the sound and totally reliable.
  2. Show us your Turntables!!!

    It should have my ebony Siggwan for additional blackness! However I do like the figure on the one that you have.
  3. Show us your Turntables!!!

    Most impressed by your 401 refurbishment, having done a few myself. Quite different to others I have seen. A neat idea to have the control knob inserts painted black and was the area around the 'GARRARD 401' logo on on the fascia also painted black? Is the chassis painted gloss black - can't quite tell from the picture? And the plinth is very striking. Please accept my compliments!
  4. Hi Evil, I tried connecting my black to the iPod Classic but it doesn't work .... not able to power the Dragonfly
  5. Very nice turntable ... but I think it's a MKI from the logo on the fascia. GLWTS.
  6. In Search of a New Wand

    I owned one of the first Wand Plus 12' tone arms. Very happy with it, a very good arm and, as remarked, great after-sales service. Simon is continually enhancing his tone arms and frequently the upgrades can be retro-fitted. Thoroughly recommended. I have recently sold the 301/Wand combination with great reluctance - too many turntables
  7. A Behringer UCA-222 will do it for you: https://www.storedj.com.au/behringer-u-control-uca222-usb-audio-interface It won't do hi-res but handles 16-bit 44.1 flac fine. And it doesn't need a separate power supply.

    Hi @mmv, Re the Audiophilleo ... I'll take it if you are OK shipping to Auckland!? Cheers, Tony
  9. I spent a lot of time trying to locate the cause of intermittent pops and crackles associated with an Air Tight phono stage, swapping tubes etc, and even taking the phono to our local tube guru to check the circuits. Eventually I found the problem ... POE. I now happily use wireless remote extenders.
  10. Suggestions Thorens TD125 Restore

    They turn up on Ebay every so often. This is one I bought a couple of years ago for around $100: You do however need to check condition carefully.
  11. Quad 99 CDP-2/DAC

    This is a very versatile, and high quality, piece of gear. I have used mine for close to ten years now. I have a DVD recorder and bluray recorder connected respectively to the digital and optical inputs, and the analog outs connected to two separate preamps. Allows me to have CD, TV, DVD and bluray all going to my sound systems with very simple switching from the remote (I don't use a home theatre setup). GLWTS.

    Do you have the box for the pair?

  14. Acceptable Seller Behaviour?

    This was the seller's response to my initial request to purchase at the listed price: "I have already been offered at a lower price, but I can accept 3nn (which was $10 above listed price) it but you have to pay your own shipping." I assumed that he had been offered lower than the asking price and thought it was a bit odd to ask for more rather than accept when someone said that they wished to buy at asking price , but as I was keen to obtain the item I did not argue and agreed to the extra $10. I did not think that I was gazumping; if he said he had already sold it but would take a higher price I would have declined.
  15. Acceptable Seller Behaviour?

    Yes, I did. There was no issue with the refund ... other than it took over two hours to appear in my account from when he made the transfer! Disproving his assertion that it always happens immediately.
