  3. Item: VTAF - Vertical Tracking Angle on the Fly Location: Sydney Price: $190 plus shipping (at cost) Item Condition: Brand new, never mounted Reason for selling: no longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: The VTAF™, from Pete Riggle Audio, allows VTA adjustment on the fly. As simple as that. I bought it exactly a year ago and it has been sitting in storage ever since. Having realised that my project will never materialise, it is only fair to offer it to someone who will have more time than me, hopefully putting this very clever unit to good use. Even though the VTAF is designed for the FR64, it will work with any 31mm diameter arm pillar. As seen in the photos, all original parts, packaging and instructions are in mint condition. From Pete Riggle's website: VTAF for Fidelity Research FR24 and FR64: $216 USD in Lacquered Brass finish. Options: Teflon Upgrade $36; Smokey Silver finish, $36. The unit for sale has the teflon upgrade included. Pictures:

  6. Item: Koetsu Rosewood Platinum cartridge and Fidelity Research FR64S tonearm Location: Epping NSW Price: $5,100 Item Condition: Very good (very conservative, due to age - see description below) Reason for selling: Downsizing gear due to imminent house move Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (add 4%), Extra Info: These two are a perfect fit - a relatively heavy tonearm paired with a low compliance cartridge. The Koetsu was fully refurbished 18 months ago in Japan (via the UK Koetsu authorised dealer). It is an earlier rosewood body, fitted with brand new internal workings, including platinum magnet, boron cantilever. It is well known that Koetsu do not do partial upgrades (retipping and the like) but a full rebuild, resulting in a brand new cartridge. Since this was not my only cartridge, it probably has not seen more than 150 hours playtime, practically meaning that it is just fully broken in. The cartridge comes in its original wooden box and can I supply all rebuild paperwork to interested parties. The Fidelity Research FR64S tonearm was purchased second hand with the sole purpose of mating with the Koetsu, and the result is undoubtedly very impressive. The tonearm is in excellent condition, considering its age. I have the original the box with all the contents in excellent condition. Can sell to interstate buyers, since size / weight is fairly low. I prefer to sell as a package, and if sold at the asking price would provide a free Fidelity Research protractor, as well as donation to SNA. Would also consider splitting the two, with the respective prices being $3,500 and $1,600. Auditions may also be arranged. Pictures:
