  1. Item: Melos Plus Series Phono Preamplifier Location: Sydney Price: $750 or ono Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved. This Melos phono preamplifier was purchased when I was living in the UK. It is an export 240 volts version. It was used in a second system. It can accommodate both an MM and MC cartridges. It was checked and serviced at Kimil Electronics last year. This phono stage uses 2 6922 valves and I will include spare valves which should keep this unit running for a while. This was used with an Ortofon MC70 and Rohmann so plenty of gain for low output MCs. It was used with an Audio Note IQ3 through its MM outputs with an Rega RP10. It has a separate power supply as seen in the last picture. I don't have the original packing so pick up only at this stage and I can also demo it in my main system. Pictures:

  9. Item: The Wand Plus 12" Tonearm Location: Sydney Price: $850 plus shipping Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: No longer rquired Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This Wand Plus tonearm was bought in 2014 to use with my Nottingham Analogue Mentor project when I refurbished its plinth. You can still see the pictures of it and my NA table on the Design Build Listen website. It was only used for 3 months before I packed everything and moved back home to Sydney. I am no longer using the NA in the 12" arm configuration so this is for sale. It would have been in excellent condition but for the small chip on the tip of the arm in photo 3 and 4. I am unsure how the tip got chipped as it has always been carefully handled and boxed in its original box when not in use. I am unable to locate its instructions but I have the instructions for my 9" wand which I will photocopy and send with the tonearm. It has all its accessories including an SME adaptor which is in addition to the normal mount. Pictures:
  10. Hi all, I'm visiting a friend in the UK and he just told me that VDH has rebuilt his Grasshopper III SLA and Colibri APM cartridges. He is looking to try another manufacturer so he is looking to off load one of the VDH. He has asked whether I'd like either one and I'm tempted to give it a try. I will be able to listen to them while I am over there so I would be able to to see which one I would prefer. I wanted to ask about what is a reasonable price for either VDH, I am presuming that essentially these are as new cartridges since its rebuilt by the factory. His system (an LP12/Zeta) is different from mine (Kuzma Ref/Triplanar), wondering if anyone has tried either one and how would they compare to an Ortofon Rohmann and Dynavector XX2? There is also a little hesitancy on my part on the exposed VDH cartridges that they are delicate and the cantilever sometimes doesn't line up. Is this justified or nothing to worry about if the rebuild looks and sounds good? What is the VDH support like if there are any issues? Thanks Alan
