  1. Item: Sun SV-2A3 Amplifier Location: Auckland, New Zealand Price: AU$2250 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too many amplifiers, downsizing Payment Method: Bank transfer,Paypal Extra Info: This example is factory-assembled, brought to New Zealand by its Japanese owner. It is therefore 100V and a good quality Japaneses Toei unobtrusive step-down transformer (220V-240V) is included. The amplifier is in outstanding condition both operationally and cosmetically, with no blemishes on the transformer covers or casework. It is extremely quiet and the sound is superb with suitable speakers; I have used Reference 3A Episode and Musical Affairs Grand Crescendo speakers with excellent results. It currently has installed 2 * General Electric 6SN7GT tubes, 2 * Sovtek 2A3 tubes and a Philips 5U4G rectifier tube. Also included will be 2 * Radiotron Aust. 6SN7GTA tubes, 2 * Brimar 6SN7GT tubes, 2 * new unused Sovtek 2A3 tubes. In addition I have a pair of RCA Radiotron vintage 2A3 tubes, supposedly NOS, in boxes, that can be purchased for AU$500. There are a number of 2A3 interest groups on the Internet, several devoted to the Sun SV-2A3, and this amplifier offers ample opportunity for tweaking if the owner chooses, for example: https://www.analogtubeaudio.de/en/sun-audio-2a3-300b-triode-amps/ The current list price (2016) for a factory-assembled SV-2A3 is JPY384,000 (AU$4681).

    librespot-0.1.0-9.fc25.x86_64. Added to our software update by our US supplier so I don't know the background for it.

    Looking for Avantgarde speakers

    This might be a bit too far away for you, but the seller is now inviting interest in separates: https://www.trademe.co.nz/electronics-photography/home-audio/full-systems/auction-1641939253.htm?rsqid=69b329f58fe5468f822d458ff2ffb05e

    An updated version of librespot fixed the problem for us. I don't know if this would be applicable to SoTm.

    Spotify - Security

    We now have a fix for the Spotify Connect app on Antipodes servers that seems to have solved the problem. I can now see multiple devices and switch freely between them:

    Spotify - Security

    FWIW I have noticed unreliable behaviour this past weekend similar to that reported by the OP using Spotify Connect on an Antipodes server. The problem was originally reported by one of our NY customers and I was able to reproduce it. I suspect it may be to do with multiple devices, but found that, even with only one device, clicking on the Devices icon on the Spotify screen caused the player to disconnect. I think Spotify might have changed something, I noticed a new install of Spotify on the laptop Sunday morning.
  10. I have one on a Thorens TD124. You definitely would not be able to use the lid: Great arm ... GLTWS.
  11. Hi, If you don't mind sending to New Zealand I'll take it! Cheers, Tony
  12. I see it's a Thakker belt so probably OK but it is important to use the correct belt for a TD160 otherwise you can get unpredictable results, for example if you use a TD125 belt. Beautiful looking turntable btw.
