  1. Definitely! I mean I have been watching DJs for more than 20years, and watching a skilled DJ playing vinyl is always a treat and always fascinating. That's just how I feel about it. And that's why the SL1200 has a strong allure for me as TT.
  2. looks great in your set-up too! I have to admit that the classic 1200 look is a big part of the appeal for me. After years of watching my favourite DJs use them it is nice to have one for home use too. And during lockdown I have really gotten into the Telekom beats videos, especially the b-sides series like this - and just enjoying watching them pick up and put down the stylus - easy and casual.
  3. Not my MK7 ,unfortunately Helps to keep the cost down I suppose, like no hinges. No gauge with mine either, though it was "open box" so maybe somebody already found a use for it. At the moment I'm using a Concorde club so the overhang should be ok I think.
  4. I've ordered an oyaide mat. I will certainly go for the fluid damping. I know that what will probably happen is that I will do a bunch of the upgrades to the mk7 and then eventually end up going to a gr.
  5. That sounds like a great idea! If order parts from those guys, is it difficult to install them? I mean, the cartridge is fine of course, but upgrading the bearings and tonearm sounds a bit more technical. I don't really want to send the whole unit around the world though. I guess I could find a technician in Australia though.
  6. I came Icross one of these on special and sort of bought it on impulse. I'm actually really impressed and I think it sounds great! Maybe the best turntable I have had, including a few of the more modest Pro-ject offerings (up to RPM3) and a cleaudio concept. It's not had the best reception online due to apparently not being as well built as the previous sl1200s. But like I said - I am really pleased with it. Not only the sound which I am thoroughly enjoying, but also the feel of using it. It's just fun and easy to play records with this. Because this hobby is like a sort of brain disease, I am immediately wondering whether it's worth stretching to an sl1200gr. Any thoughts?
  7. Item: SME 3009 tonearm (detachable headshell type) Price Range: found, thanks! Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I'd could be interested in other brands of similar quality too
  8. I had a Naim 272 a few months ago and also wanted to stream Roon. The only solutions I saw were basically to add another streamer as an endpoint (eg Sotm, Allo, Pro-ject streambox) and then feed into the 272. It seemed a bit inelegant to me so I ended up just playing from my own NAS and Spotify. In the end I sold it to get something Roon ready. I went with a NADc658 since it had analog phono inputs, a streamer and also Room correction. so that was my experience - Good luck with your search!
  9. Hi Legs, it's been a while, hope you have been well! I'm using a topping D10sat the moment. I have it next to an Allo USB signature streamer, both going into an RME ADI2 DAC. It seems to be very very good - just playing straight from a cheap laptop through the D10s is really close to the Allo
  10. Further information: I had some problems with this type, one channel only working intermittently. Bought a replacement arm, but it's beyond my ability to do the replacement. Also, I accidentally broke the lugs off the cables of the old arm. The new tone arm is totally intact and never used. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  11. Further information: Ordered for a project that I have realised I am never going to do. This is the kit version so there is no case. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  12. I have one and I think it is excellent. My favourite of all DACs I've owned including Lampizator, PS audio, Lindemann. Tone controls and parametric EQ are a bonus as well. Highly recommend it.
  13. Thanks, that makes sense. I should add that I do have one of these and it is a truly exceptional device, I highly recommend it. GLWTS
  14. How is that? Can you separately EQ the different outputs?

  16. Item: Naim Nac-N 172 xs Location: Brunswick, VIC Price: $1500->$1400->$1300 Item Condition: near mint Reason for selling: trying a NAD with DSP Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought this a couple of months ago, from a UK Naim dealer, so I am not the first user. It was refurbished and serviced by the authorised dealer, but unfortunately I have lost the piece of paper that certifies that. This unit is from 2012 and is the first generation that does not have Bluetooth. It looks totally new, and has all parts and packaging, so shipping is possible. I bought a DIN to XLR cable too, which I'll include in case that is useful. Sound is excellent, a big step up from Cambridge cxn I was using before.

  17. I like ASR, and I enjoy this site and others too. Usually if you read the reviews of the equipment on ASR there's quite a bit of consideration and thinking about why products perform the way they do. I don't have a technical background, but I've been interested in audio for a few years and I learn a lot from what Amir and others write. I used to enjoy when Lukas from Lampizator did his analyses of how certain products worked too. I find the intensity of hostility to ASR amazing. I understand people have criticisms, but it gets quite extreme. This thread is pretty entertaining though. Also the D90 looks like a nice unit.
  18. Hi mate, I am a short term owner of a Ds/1 (currently in the classifieds). I'm in Melbs though, so quite far from SEQ
  19. Item: Linn Akurate DS Media Player/Streamer Location: Brunswick Melbourne Price: ($2200) now $1900 Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: just trying things out Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is in excellent condition with no visible marks. Manufactured in 2015, it has the latest software installed and is Roon ready, as well as being able to stream music from Spotify or a network server. It has the remote etc as well as the original packing so easy to ship. Very easy to set up, I just plugged in the ethernet cable and it worked from the get-go. Bought this last week from a fellow SNA member. Just wanted to try it while waiting for a component I have on back order. original ad: hotos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  20. I'm very happy with the fact that the Rme sounds so good with regular USB input and the bundled PSU. No need for expensive peripheral dejitter and reclocking devices. On the other hand, the Naim is a beautiful piece of hifi design and is a really nice single box. I would love RME functionality in a Naim chassis.
  21. I'm reconfiguring the front end of my system at the moment and have these two units on the hand. Prior to this I was using a Cambridge cxn as a placeholder. The cxn has excellent functionality and is very easy to use. But the sound of both the RME and the Naim are noticeably better than the Cambridge. I found the RME has better imaging and separation of instruments and the bass is more articulated. The Naim sounds warmer, a bit meatier. Whenever a family member walks in while the Naim is playing they tend to start dancing. This didn't happen with the Cambridge, and not as much with the RME. So by that metric Naim wins. I really like the hyperreal soundstage of the RME though, so that wins for me.
