    SOLD: SOLD: FS: Lenco L75 Turntable

    It's got a L78 mat, which is said to be better.
  2. The white LED stays on once it receives a signal. Now sold. Feel free to PM if want any more info.
  3. Item: Starting Point Systems Mini TDA1543 NOS Battery DAC Location: Castlemaine, VIC Price: $125 posted. Item Condition: Excellent - a few blemishes if you look hard. Reason for selling: Decluttering, Marie Kondo style; aka, reducing the box count. Payment Method: Cash - pickup. Paypal/EFT - post. Extra Info: This is the non-USB version. It has 1 S/PDIF-coaxial and 1 optical-toslink input. I sold the USB DAC3 yesterday. To me, the two sound identical. I also find the switches on this one more intuitive, compared to the button that toggles through the settings on the DAC3. It's looks don't exactly impress though! I was using this with a Schiit Eitr (USB to S/PDIF converter) in front of it. When purchased new, they don't come with a power supply. It's BYO 12v-15v available from Jaycar, an old phone charger, or one of those ifi ones for overkill. Pictures:
  4. Item: ifi Gemini Dual headed USB cable 70cm Location: Castlamaine VIC Price: $160 posted Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Decluttering, Marie Kondo style. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Very well made and flexible. Allows a battery or separate power supply to be used to power your dac, and isolate it from the data signal. I used it with a USB lithium battery to power my DAC. Includes soft case, USB B-mini adapter, box. Pictures:
  5. Item: Schiit Eitr - USB to SPDIF converter Location: Castlemaine, VIC. Price: $285 posted. Item Condition: Good as new, hardly used as it was packed away during a reno. Purchased from Addicted to Audio less than a year ago. Reason for selling: Decluttering, Marie Kondo style. Payment Method: Cash - pickup. Paypal/EFT - post. Extra Info: I used this between both my Apple devices (iphone/macbook pro) and DAC. It completely solved the "this device draws too much power" problem I had with both my iphone; and connection issues I had with Audirvana recognising the DAC. http://www.schiit.com/products/eitr Includes 6vac AU adapter as supplied. That's all that came with it. BYO usb and coaxial cables. Pictures:
  6. Item: Isotek Evo3 Polaris 6-way powerboard filter conditioner. Location: Castlemaine, VIC. Price: $325 posted. Item Condition: Excellent - minor blemishes - one small scratch underneath. The badge is a bit wonky. Reason for selling: Decluttering, Marie Kondo style. Payment Method: Cash - pickup. Paypal/EFT - post. Extra Info: No box, but will pack well. Pictures:
  7. SOLD. Non-usb version still available for $120 plus post.
  8. Item: Starting Point Systems Mini TDA1543 NOS Battery DAC3 - USB version Location: Castlemaine, VIC Price: $130 plus post *SOLD*. Non-usb version still available for $120 plus post. Item Condition: Excellent, a few minor blemishes. Reason for selling: NLR - too many DACs Payment Method: Cash - pickup, Paypal - post. Extra Info: The two supplied 9v rechargeable batteries are included. It didn't come supplied with a power supply. Any 12-15v wallwart will do. I used it with an ifi 15v wallwart. You get about 3-4 hours of listening on battery before a charge is needed. The USB connection also provides power. Pickup in Castlemaine, Mt Macedon on a Friday, Melb this weekend, or happy to post. I'm also selling the non-USB version (for $120). I can't for the life of me, pick a difference in sound. My preference is actually for the non-USB version with its switches, rather than one button that toggles through the settings. Unless you need USB of course. Pictures:

    FS: Mimic SE - MM phono stage

    G'day Mark, thanks for the feedback. Sorry, I don't think I ever got back to you about my impressions of the Mimic! It sounds great, does everything right and is very quiet. It seems to me to be neutral and well balanced. I'd say my turntable is a limiting factor, which I'm working on - Lenco project imminent. Just to clarify, the only reason I'm selling it is because I want to simplify my system so that my partner can more easily switch it on and listen to music. If she goes to put on an LP one night and the batteries have gone flat, she'll walk away, never to return (to listen to music)!
  10. Item: Mimic SE - MM phono stage Location: Castlemaine, VIC Price: $200 plus post Item Condition: As good as new Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Cash - pickup, Paypal - post. Extra Info: This is a bespoke (for the hipsters) OPAMP based, MM, battery powered phono stage, built by Mark Houston, aka Retrothermionic. More details (and internal pics) here on Mark’s blog: http://retro-thermionic.blogspot.com/2015/08/mimic-se-mm-phono-preamp.html From the maker: "The SE versions has Solen output caps and some improved caps on the EQ network. There is no charge ability and batteries have to be swapped out. There are three 9V batteries but it only takes a few minutes and you get over 100 hours play on good batteries. There is a battery test point at the front so no need to lift the lid to test the batteries." A set of new Duracell batteries are included, so you’re good to go for about 100 hours. Pickup in Castlemaine, Mt Macedon on a Friday, Melb this weekend, or happy to post. Pictures:
  11. Item: Isotek Evo3 Premier Fig8/C7 power cable - AU plug Location: Castlemaine, VIC Price: $120 plus post Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Cash - pickup, Paypal - post. Extra Info: I use these cables purely because they're flexible/supple, have captive/molded plugs and some shielding. Probably still overkill though. I no longer need a Fig8. Cable and box only. Pickup in Castlemaine, Mt Macedon on a Friday, Melb this weekend, or happy to post. Pictures:
  12. Will do, would appreciate the feedback and advice. I have a PTP6, Sien’s bearing and a few slabs of ’Paperock’ ready to go. Has this sale gone through btw?
  13. I have 3 and still don’t have one up and running! Project imminent though!
