  1. Cool. Good to hear stories of others having the same Sansui deck. I just don't have the space for a second TT in the house, otherwise maybe I'd hang on to it.
  2. Item: Sansui SR-212 Vintage 70s Turntable - Japan - Professionally Restored & Upgraded Location: Sydney Price: $450, open to reasonable offers Item Condition: Very Good, recently serviced/restored/upgraded and working. Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I recently inherited this Sansui SR-212 turntable , which is of 1970s vintage and is made in Japan. The turntable employs a unique multiple suspension/insulation system to eliminate howling ( it has a suspended sub-chassis design). The deck is in really nice condition, no major blemishes to speak of. Even the lid is in good condition, no cracks and the hinges also appear to be working fine. It did need some minor repair work to get it up and running, so I engaged Chris from Spin Doctor Music here in Sydney to repair/restore the deck for me which he did very well. In the process the following upgrades were also made to the deck : Brand new drive belt Brand new Jelco HS-25 cartridge shell was purchased and installed onto the tonearm Brand new Ortofon 2M Silver MM phono cartridge was purchased, installed and aligned Brand new AUS power cord was installed Initially I thought I might use this Sansui TT in a second system, but It turns out that I won't be making use of it after all. So , it's up for sale now to someone who can make use of it. Everything is in good working order, including the arm cueing and auto-return mechanism. Platter speed has been tested by Spin Doctor Music and is accurate and stable at both 33.1/3 and 45 speeds. Some more info and general specs on this turntable are available here: https://www.vinylengine.com/library/sansui/sr-212.shtml Note of course that this one has the Ortofon 2M Silver cart and Jelco headshell upgrades. The Ortofon 2M Silver seems to sit between the 2M Blue and the 2M Bronze in the Ortofon 2M lineup. I will also provide the original headshell and also the (probably very worn out) original SC-37 IM cartridge. I don’t have any boxes or packaging for the deck, so I would prefer local pickup from Sydney. I've also got the original operation manual for it. The new Ortofon 2M Silver cartridge and Jelco HS-25 headshell together alone would cost over $400 RRP. Buyer will need to add their own RCA-RCA phono cable to connect the deck to an amp/phono stage. Local pickup Sydney only. COD payment is easiest, or happy to receive a bank/BSB or PayPal Friends transfer before pickup.

  3. Item: Massdrop Noble X IEMs with Noble Apple Lightning Cable & Various Extra Eartips Location: Sydney Price: $240 + postage Item Condition: Excellent, as new. Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this pair of Massdrop Noble X In-Ear Monitor headphones from Massdrop in the late September 2017 drop. Here is the link to the detailed product information on the Massdrop site : https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdrop-x-noble-x-universal-iem I also purchased the optional lightning cable (+US$40 with the drop, normally +US$80 if bought on its own) to use with Apple iPhone / iPad devices that don't / won't have dedicated headphone jacks on them. I have not used this cable yet, so it remains brand new. After trying all the different stock ear buds provided with the Noble X, I decided to try a couple of third party ones as well to improve fit, comfort and sonics : SpinFit CP100s , Comply Foam Sport Pro 500, Dekoni Bulletz (Mercury 4.9mm). Of the three, I think the Dekoni are the best overall fit/comfort and great sonics, the Comply Foams were also good but didn't last very long. In this sale I am including : one set of SpinFit CP100a (size M). One pair of the M size Spinfits are still unused and sealed in the packaging. [Note that the Size L ones shown in the pictures below is NOT included]. Two sets of Dekoni Bulletz (size M and L), brand new, unopened. I'll also provide all the original ear tips. I have cleaned them all with isopropyl alcohol wipes. On the whole, these Noble X IEMs have not received much use from me. I've used them maybe three or four times a week for no more than 30 minutes at a time (on my train commutes), and haven't used them at all for the last 8-9 months or so. So I would say that they are still pretty much in as-new condition. They are always carefully packed away and stored/transported in the very cool protective carrying tin supplied with the IEMs. The sound of these IEMs is truly amazing : fast, clear, detailed, even, open. I was quite astonished as I was not expecting such great sound from a "budget" IEM. Many have commented, and I would agree, that these Massdrop Noble X IEMs are amazing value for money and possibly sound better than some of the other "entry level" original Noble IEMs. At the end of the day, I just prefer using over-ear headphones instead of in-ear plug types, so I am putting these Noble X IEMs up for sale. They come with all original packaging, paperwork and carry cases, as well as the optional Apple Lightning cable and the additional ear tips described above. I will post to anywhere in Australia using Express Post with tracking and extra cover. Buyer to pay shipping costs. Pictures:
  4. Item: AKG K240 mkii Studio Monitoring Headphones + Carry case + Beyer Ear Pads Location: Sydney, CBD or Upper North Shore Price: $125.00, plus postage at buyer’s cost if shipping required. Item Condition: Excellent, both cosmetically and operationally Reason for selling: Too many headphones, not used. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am selling a pair of AKG K240 mkII Studio Monitoring Headphones. These are a fantastic semi-open over-the-ear studio monitoring headphones, great for HiFi use as well. https://www.akg.com/Headphones/Professional Headphones/K240MKII.html These AKGs are very well known in the recording industry as an excellent, solid performer. Very clean, open and balanced sound that's non-fatiguing with great levels of details across the whole audio band. Also very comfortable and light weight so can be worn for hours on end. They also run pretty well off an iPhone/mobile/portable, but do sound their best when driven from a dedicated headphone amp or sound /mixing desk. These headphones are in excellent condition. I purchased these in September 2015 from Turramurra Music in Sydney and have been the only owner since new. They are only used a few hours a week, and are always stored inside the case I got separately for them (see below) when not being used. The headphones come with all original accessories, packaging, and paperwork including: Original P-leather pads with the cool outer stitching Original AKG velour pads Single-sided, detachable 3 m cable & additional 5 m coiled cable 3.5 to 6mm plug adaptor. I'm also providing the following extra accessories that I purchased separately to use with these headphones from Amazon.com: Casebudi protective carry case (US$35) : https://www.amazon.com/Headphone-Carrying-Protection-Sennheiser-Ballistic/dp/B00BF6IKL4/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1517184798&sr=8-5&keywords=casebudi+headphone+case Beyerdynamic EDT770VB velour pads (US$30) which are more comfortable (larger ear openings) than the AKG velour ones that came with the headphones: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007VCKA64/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I will post to anywhere in Australia using Express Post with tracking and extra cover.

  5. Item: Massdrop Noble X IEMs with Noble Apple Lightning Cable & Spinfit Earbuds Location: Sydney Price: $240 + postage Item Condition: Excellent, as new.

I have not used this cable yet, so it remains brand new. After trying all the different stock ear buds provided with the Noble X, I decided to try the SpinFit CP100s to improve fit, comfort and sonics. The SpinFits are great. I bought one pack of Large, and one pack of Medium. Briefly tried the Large ones deciding they are too large and so got the Mediums which fitted me a bit better. I have cleaned them all with isopropyl alcohol wipes. The top pairs left in each pack remain completely untouched and brand new. I'll also provide all the original ear tips all cleaned with alcohol wipes. On the whole, these Noble X IEMs have not received much use from me. I've used them maybe three or four times a week for no more than 30 minutes at a time (on my train commutes). So I would say that they are still pretty much in as-new condition.

  6. Ah, thanks for that. Forgot to mention. It’s 3mm thick. The mat also has a recess around the centre to accommodate record labels.
  7. Item: Tonar Pure Cork Turntable Platter Mat - As New Location: Sydney, CBD or Upper North Shore Price: $19.00, plus postage at buyer’s cost if shipping required. Item Condition: Excellent, as new Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this Tonar pure cork platter mat brand new from Castle Hill Sydney HiFi (for use with my Gyrodec). But I've found that it just doesn't quite work that well with the Gyrodec that seems to just work best with no platter mat added. The Tonar cork mat comes with original packaging sleeve. I can post to anywhere in Australia using Express Post with tracking. Buyer to pay shipping costs. Pictures:
  8. Item: Matched pair of TJ Full Music 45/n mesh-plate SET tubes - Near New! Location: Sydney Price: $200.00 Item Condition: Near new, perfect. Reason for selling: Not used, downsizing valve collection. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These TJ Full Music 45/n mesh-plate SET tubes came stock with my tube pre-amp. They are great sounding tubes, and look super great too with their large balloon shaped glass envelopes and the way the filaments light up the plates. I have since amassed a large collection of other 45 (and other) tubes and am now wanting to downsize the collection. These TJs have at most 150 hours on them (light use a couple of times a week for first ~6 months of owning the pre-amp). So these tubes are pretty much still brand new. They've been stored safely in their original boxes for the last few years, unused. I just plugged them in now to make sure they still work , which they do perfectly ! (see pics attached). Come with their original boxes and paperwork (again, see pics attached) I will post to anywhere in Australia using Express Post with tracking and extra cover. Buyer to pay shipping costs. Pictures:
  9. Thanks. Is it just the in-line remote/mic module on the cable you don't want ? Otherwise, my understanding is that the T51i and the P are identical ?
  10. Item: Beyerdynamic T51i Portable Headphones Location: Sydney, CBD or Upper North Shore Price: $250.00 $325.00, plus postage at buyer’s cost if shipping required. Item Condition: Excellent, both cosmetically and operationally Reason for selling: No longer required. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are a fantastic closed-back on-ear headphone. They are the current model, T51i . Very comfortable, light weight, with a lovely balanced sound. They also fold flat and come with a carry case for portability. The remote/microphone on these are designed primarily for use with iOS devices , but the headphones will work as headphones just fine on any device or amplifier. Some limited remote control functionality should also work OK on Android phones, however buyers should check with Beyerdynamic and the net for info on specific compatibility levels with their own devices. These headphones have received many glowing reviews which are readily available on the internet, including one from Ken Rockwell here: http://www.kenrockwell.com/audio/beyer/t51i.htm Official product info on Beyerdynamic website available here : http://europe.beyerdynamic.com/shop/t-51-i.html These headphones are in excellent condition, Only very lightly used. I purchased these in June 2017 from Amazon.com. I do believe that Beyerdynamic provide an international warranty, so buyer should receive support from local Beyerdynamic service outlets should that ever be required. The headphones come with all original packaging, documentation and carry case. I will post to anywhere in Australia using Express Post with tracking and extra cover. Buyer to pay shipping costs.
