  1. Item: Joe Wood & The Lonely Ones CDs Price Range: $40 + Item Condition: VG - NM Extra Info: Looking for one copy of The Lonely Ones for a friend and ultimately chasing two copies of Blues out of Long Beach. should I be posting in CDs ?
  2. There is definitely discussion out there on the importance (or not) of VTA
  3. Thanks @kelossus, @2Brix and especially @cafe latte . With a bit more of look on the net starting at parallel is the go, then adjustment by ear. It's come back to me that with the 10X5 I did go through a process of adjusting heal and toe of the stylus (with the card under the collar) till I thought it sounded best. With the E3 pitched as a user friendly cart I'm going to assume the VTA / SRA will be pretty good with arm parallel. Interestingly I've discovered the relationship between VTA / SRA and the master cutter which I never new. Here are a couple of useful links. https://www.gcaudio.com/tips-tricks/cartridge-alignment-the-basics-explained/ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Aa8em5LXDM&feature=emb_rel_end
  4. I have a SL-1200 with a Jelco SA-750 arm and am in the process of installing a new cartridge (Goldring E3). It's been about 5 years since I set up with the previous cart (Dyna 10X5) and I have a mind blank about setting the height of the arm (which is adjustable) to suit the cart. All I remember is using a pack of cards? I assume I did this previously for VTA reasons not that I am overly worried, let alone have the ability to measure it. That said I want to do my best with set-up. The 10X5 height to top of cantilever is 18.8 mm - not sure of recommended VTA The E3 height to stylus tip is 18 mm with recommended VTA of 20 degrees. Can anyone enlighten me on any rule of thumbs with setting the arm height? Does it really matter to much with a budget cart?
  5. Not to brush the people that reaIly know what they're doing when in comes to room measurements, I found the basic process fairly easy with this mic and the free Room EQ Wizard software. Used only a few times as I enjoyed investigating what's going in my listening space but ended up prioritising other things over room treatments as it's a shared living area. Will express post.

  6. As new condition in orginal packaging. Purchased to route digital output on TV to old amplifier. Didn't stick with that set-up though nothing to do with the DAC. This particular FiiO DAC is discontinued and not sure if still available anywhere. The stock wall PSU adapter requires any cheap international adapter though can be powered by USB direct from TV or plug in USB charger. Price includes express post.

  7. Thanks for getting in contact @rockeater I actually watched your video on the Caspian CDP this morning. I have PMed you with a few questions.
  8. Thanks for reply @JukKluk2. Will see what else come up but wil keep this in mind. I'm not necessarily out to spend max. budget. Love the idea of the platter mechanism too. @DAMO 1147??
  9. Item: CD Player Price Range: ~ $1,200 (new) or ~ $700 used. Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking for a dedicated CDP to join the Roksan K2 amp recently purchased from the Classifieds. Preferences and constraints: Maximum dimensions of 440 mm wide x 380 deep. Height no problem. Digital output not required. Digital input a bonus but not required. Something not hyper sensitive to less than perfect CDs preferred. Aesthetics are a consideration and ideally something Roksan would be great but will consider anything. Could potentially stretch budget on the right player. Have considered the typical Yamaha, Marantz, NAD suspects - still interested in other options. Will organise own courier If necessary, or actually happy to make a big drive for pick up (my learner driver son needs the hours) - Coming from the Sth Gold Coast.
  10. Found something else in the FS. Thanks @thnmas
  11. Hi Ross Don't seem to have received any message. Have PMed my payment details.
  12. Further information: Purchased from Toma Audio in February 2014. Comes in original packaging with brush. Not used in recet times but I have checked the unit is in perfect working order. Cosmetically the unit presents very well however there is some very minor surface rust on the top bolts, and a few scratches on one side (see pics). Happy to provide the buyer with some professional wetting agent to help with preparing quality cleaning solution.

  13. Further information: Purchased new late 2014 / early 2015 but not sure where from. Comes with all original packaging and hardware. The cart has had relatively limited use for age - on average about 5 hrs a week for the first 18 months, about 10 hrs a month for next 12 months, and then 2-3 records every 2-3 months or less. I'd typically removed headshell and store safely when not in used in the later years, but there is some fading and marks on the top of the mount as a result of being fixed to the headshell for a long period and the sun (see pics). I bought an Okki Nokki RCM at the same time so anything played was properly cleaned new, NM or excellent condition records with maybe a couple of VG condition as exceptions. Reason I'm selling is going to a basic integrated phono so will just getting standard MM carry to match.
