    SOLD: FS: Luxman PD-264

    Item: Bargin Luxman PD-264 Location: Gold Coast Price: $160 prefer pick up Item Condition: 6 out of 10, 0 out of 10 for cover Reason for selling: No time to spruce up Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Extra Info: Nice starter deck or great project. It was to be my clean up project but I have no time. Fully working however stylus is dead. As I understand these come good with some tlc and the arm is worth asking price alone. Pictures:
  4. Not a 1704 however not 44K either. George put me onto this model a number of years ago and it been exceptional for me. It has seen off a number of newer high priced dacs and cd players. CAL Cl-15 CL-15 is based on the PowerBoss system—the combination of a Pacific Microsonics PMD-100 HDCD decoder/filter, dual colinear 20-bit Burr-Brown PCM1702P DACs, and a series of regulated power supplies. Matsushita supplies both transports, the CL-15 has a thick, single-disc drawer with silky-smooth action. Both players use discrete circuitry in their analog output stages, but the CL-15 adds a number of enhanced performance features. The first is a multilayer glass-epoxy circuit board that results in improved separation of the various circuits and a 4–5dB reduction in the noise floor. Other improvements include the CL-15's much more extensive power supply and regulation, and its true dual-mono construction, which starts with separate power transformers.
  5. Ta I dropped into Jaycar last night, and picked some up - there straight and not like those cable gal ones, but the way the those "horrid connectors' work its pushing them off queue and there lose and don't look like even the better ones will work. I'm going to send the unit to Pete_Mac for the proper ones. Then its done and I do plan on keeping the unit at this stage. cheers for tips and cheers for the holidays. Damo.
  6. I just swapped in my Sansui 505 and realized that all my speaker cable won’t fit the old style cable connectors. Little plastic push downs that reveal a very small hole for the connection. I believe to change over to newer posts would be around $200 - $250 (Pete & Skippy correct?). Therefore suggestion for decent 2-2.5m of cable at less than the change over appreciated.

    PMC Speaker owners thread

    Thanks synthz, WOW nice combo's Power: ARC Ref 75 Pre: Schitt Freya Power: ARC Ref 75 Pre: Parasound JC2 I now think my first port of call on the amp matching will be a vintage Sansaui with at least 100 per side. I'm hoping the slightly warm touch with noted excellence in the mids will suit the .26's. If anyone is considering selling a pair of 26's in walnut or oak - PM me. cheers and merry x-mas to all Damo
  8. Yep and not sure clay at Gieseler Audio is taking on amp fixes as well both would be good to contact. I don't think Geoff at Toma want to do repairs anymore. I'M on the GC.

    Hello from Currumbin

    HI Mark, I'm at palm beach and my good friend is at Tugun. Probs need to hear his system as it closer to your speakers than mine which are quite different but will also provide a good comparison. I'm not sure we consider our rigs as highly resolving systems - mike at Lehnhan audio might be your ticket there. We go for more bang for your buck set ups. I d say nothing wrong with the amp and speakers (there always better - how much do you want to spend) - id be pointing the finger at the dac, however i f not herd that one. Tidal should be great as a source, however my preference is for shinny disk via a ladder dac. The family runs crappy spotify via the dac as well and it's pretty good. Therefore no reason the tidal via a good dac will not be a1. PM and we can st something up. cheers Damo
