    My understanding is they are all sold out. If not grab one.

    Oppo 105 Issue

    This is the price you'll pay for a 205 now they aren't produced anymore. https://www.ebay.com.au/i/132765183014?chn=ps Maybe you should look for a CD/SACD player if you don't play Blurays. https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/hifi/cd-s1000/index.html https://www.pioneeraudio.com.au/collections/cd-players Seems it would be cheaper to get the Oppo fixed.

    Oppo 105 Issue

    It was a shame when Merlin Audio (Oppo shop) lost the distribution rights for Oppo. The service they provided was second to none. I forget the owner's name but he was on holidays in Perth and came out personally to install a region-free kit on my BDP-95. And at no additional charge! Maybe if you phone them they can suggest someone. https://www.whitepages.com.au/merlin-audio-design-10870622/mitchell-act-10870616B This doesn't sound like a laser problem. It's further along the signal path.

    SOLD: Curious USB cable 0.8m

    OK. You.. You.. PM me to arrange.
  6. Item: Vincent Pho-8 phono stage Location: Perth Price: $250 plus postage Item Condition: As new in original box Reason for selling: Surplus. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank transfer Extra Info: As new. This is an excellent entry level phono stage that has wowed the critics. https://www.vincent-tac.de/en/product-lines/premiumline/pho-8.html https://www.selby.com.au/vincent-pho-8-phono-preamplifier-black-pho8b.html Pictures:
  7. Item: Curious USB cable 0.8m Location: Perth Price: $200 plus postage Item Condition: Excellent. I put a small piece of heat shrink at one end where the braided sleeve had come loose from the heat shrink. Obviously doesn't effect the sound and probably isn't even noticeable. I will post at cost. Reason for selling: Too short. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank transfer Extra Info: An amazing and well reviewed USB cable. Just too short for my needs ATM. Pictures:
  8. Item: Yaqin MS-11B phono stage Location: Perth Price: $85.00 plus postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank transfer Extra Info: This is a great cheap phono stage. I used it for a year or so before switching to a Pho 8 which is also being listed. I will post at cost. The unit has a really bright blue LED screen at the front so I have covered it with a Light Dim which can be removed if you like BRIGHT blue LEDs. Pictures:
  9. Item: Aurealis Speaker 1 speaker cable 3m pair spade to banana plus 1.8m centre speaker cable banana to banana. Location: Perth Price: $250.00 plus postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank transfer Extra Info: These aren't made anymore from looking at the website. I bought the centre speaker cable so whoever buys the 3m pair can have the centre cable as well. The first photo is of what I think are the correct cable but they could be the next model up. I have the original boxes so postage is fine. Pictures:
  10. Item: Aurealis R1 interconnects RCA 1m. 2 pairs. Location: Perth Price: $120 per pair plus postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Moved to Accuphase balanced Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank transfer Extra Info: Hardly used but now surplus to needs. Original bags and boxes. Will post at cost. Pictures:

    Breaking in

    I'm not sure whether the "everyone" is a typo or Freudian slip. Makes sense though.
  12. Personally I'm waiting for this to come on to the market. http://degritter.com/ The reviews from the beta testers seem universally supportive and it's cheaper than the German and U.S. options. The Kirmuss is pretty crude by comparison.
  13. Do you mean replace the suspension or the whole TT? I had it in my setup in the 80s then put it in the cupboard for 25 or so years. I went purely CD until 5 years ago when I started using DDs and eventually got the GT2000. I reckon once you've used a DD it would be hard to go back to that wobbly BD concept. Personally I'm certainly not interested in going that way again. My brother now has the Logic (for parts). I actually found the perspex cove in the cupboard last week.
  14. Yes but some people just love complicating their lives unnecessarily.
  15. I've never even seen an idler TT let alone heard one. I had a Logic DM 101 (BD) once years ago. I got rid of a Sony PS 4750 to get the Logic!!! It wobbled like a jelly and was impossible to set up properly. Well that was one of my biggest Hi-Fi mistakes. So I doubt I'll ever bother going BD again. Just too much trouble.
