  1. Replacing the cable on any rega tonearm is a no no....Rega say it makes no difference to sound quality by upgrading to Cardas No cable was replaced: One channel wasn't working and the issue was with the Rega DIN plug. The DIN plug was not replaced to "improve sound quality."
  2. Good question, I presumed both the horizontal and vertical bearings were damaged. The cartridge was skipping back rather than forwards and became worse when the anti-skate was increased. I will try to find out tomorrow afternoon and get back to you. Edit: Actually, Jason did specify the horizontal bearings but didn't mention the vertical bearings.
  3. Item: Rega/Acoustic Signature Tonearm, RB900 equivalent - NB. Bearings are damaged Location: Perth Price: $150 + postage Item Condition: Damaged bearings, new DIN socket, otherwise excellent Reason for selling: I don't want to try to fix it Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The tonearm would not track, so I had Jason/Turntable Doctor check it out. The diagnosis is damaged bearings, not sure how it happened. I've decided that I'm not competent enough to do this repair and can't afford to get it fixed by someone else. One channel of the original soldered DIN plug was not working and that has been replaced with a Cardas male DIN plug. The Rega cable has also been terminated with a female right-angled 1827 DIN plug. Please note that replacing the bearings is not a trivial procedure. Pictures:

  6. I recently bought the MC version of this phono from Ross and it is a fantastic, musical sounding phono in immaculate condition.
  7. Ionic hair brushes supposedly work in the same way as the anti-static guns. As long as the bristles can be removed it may be an even cheaper method. Edit: Maybe not! These emit negative ions which would add even more static to the records. TNT-Audio had another method of static removal: https://www.tnt-audio.com/clinica/stat_trap_e.html
  8. @t_mike It probably comes with plenty of drugs in all of the nooks and crannies. What a great piece of history, it should go in a museum.

  10. I bought my first speakers from Frank about 20 years ago. A lovely guy who was so patient and helpful with my agonizing decision. RIP
  11. Not that you should be expected to do so, of course, and nor is it the real issue, but examples 1 and 3 should be able to be corrected using the software that has displayed the waveforms of the music files. Thanks for bringing the issue to attention.
  12. Hi Rocky, I have 2.2 uF Mundorf silver/oil output caps in my DAC. Recently added 0.01uF Cornell-Dublier 940Cs as bypass caps. They added a little more detail and treble to the sound of the Mundorfs.
  13. @aussievintage As well as the remastering that candyflip described there was also that remastering of Sgt. Pepper by Don Bartley for the Sydney HiFi Show in 1983. Only 500 copies.....
