  1. Thanks all for the responses to my query and some great suggestions. Because I had two MC inputs, I was going to solder in a 47k resister input into the one on the Right hand side (referring to photo) to create another MM input and then still have the MC if needed later. However, Warren you right, I can build the loading plugs (like andyr has done in the thread below) and play around with different loadings as needed without worrying about internal soldering so will take that approach.
  2. Are you talk about something like this Andy?
  3. Above is an image of the MC/MC(Load) section of my phono preamp. I want to solder in resister loads internally, rather than using external plugs and just want to make sure I do this correctly as I don't have access to a schematic (and no help from manufacturer). My assumption is that I just need to solder the chosen resister load between the Shield trace and tip (shown with little red circles) to achieve the chosen loading, however I was confused why the previous solder point was so far away - wouldn't it be better to solder into the closer Via (white circle) and keep the resister lead length short to prevent pick up of any unwanted noise?
  4. Further information: Works flawlessly and presents well with some minor blemishes to the front display and very minor marks on the top (all captured in the images). Comes with remote, NAD M51 double boxes, power cable but without manual (available on NAD's website). This is one of the Clay Geisner upgraded DACs replacing the original switching power supply to a linear one which makes a noticeable improvement (I was able to A/B compare both original and upgrade M51s for sometime as I owned both). There is plenty of information on the forums on SNA and dedicated thread on the M51. Reviews and feedback are very positive for this DAC and it is certainly a great DAC to own or try out if you are curious. Photos:
  5. Further information: Purchased from Krispy Audio when they were selling these in 2014 and is a MKII. Have cleaned less than 50 records with this RCM and it is in excellent working order with trouble free use. Comes with Okki Nokki packaging (doubled boxed), record clamp, standard LP suction arm (felt in good condition), IEC mains cable and dust cover. The cover was an additional purchase but is able to be shipped in the box with the RCM. The dust cover is a must IMO, as keeping dust from an RCM is pretty important! Does not include cleaning fluid concentrate or original brush (there are plenty of suitable brush replacements and record cleaning concoctions). Cosmetically the unit presents well with a few very minor blemishes and scratches (see photos). For anyone not familiar with the Okki Nokki, it is a wet - vacuum cleaning system, and works by first agitating debris from the record as it rotates via a brush placed along the grooves. After a few rotations (the unit has forward and reverse) the wand vacuums the liquid away, leaving you with a clean and hopefully crackle and pop - free record. It can’t perform miracles and fix a record retrieved from a dumpster, but for gunk, mould, fingerprints etc... it does a good job. And with the debris and detritus new records come with, it’s a good idea to clean everything, not just 2nd hand purchases. Your needle will thank you. Preference is given to local pick-up. Photos:

  7.

The unit permits electronic speed change of your Pro-Ject record player between 33 and 45 r.p.m. The replay speed can be increased and decreased in twenty steps of 0.1 r.p.m to obtain perfect turntable rotation speed at both 33 and 45 r.p.m. There is one small discolouration (visible in the photo on the top of the unit).Also includes a white 16V transformer and includes the jumper cable between the Speed Box and turntable. Key Features: Can act as a power supply for both mains and 16V/AC units Electronic speed change between 33 and 45 r.p.m. 78 r.p.m. also possible after fitting accessory pulley (excludes some Pro-Ject models) Quartz-generated high precision electronic speed regulation All functions microprocessor controlled Pitch control Voltage constant mains filter function with transformer mains decoupling Specifications: Nominal speeds 33 and 45 r.p.m. Optional 78 r.p.m. Quartz oscillator Speed stability ± 0,001% Pitch control ±20 steps/0,1 r.p.m. Turntable connection 16V/AC 190mA max. (3W power consumption max.) 120V model only 120V/AC 25mA max. (3W power consumption max.) 230V model only 230V/AC 13mA max. (3W power consumption max.)

  12. Hi Pac—man, Have you consider speaker cable for troublebshooting? If you have long speaker cables this can impact system performance. Also worth trying a different set if you have on hand. I found this can make a significant difference in low end output.
