  1. Item: Akai AA 1175 Receiver Location: Melbourne Price: $390 $370 $350 $325 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Vintage Akai receiver in very good cosmetic condition. Slight hum when music not playing probably could do with a recap. Sound is amazing. Best receiver i have had. I believe these were designed to compete with the fabled Marantz receivers of the day. Twin transformer, dual mono. Clean and powerful. Very big and heavy so local pickup is preferred. Pictures:
  2. Item: Yamaha PF800 Turntable Location: Melbourne Price: $1100 Item Condition:Mint Reason for selling:Consolidating equipment Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This turntable needs no introduction. Yamaha's effort to outpoint Linn and Thorens at their own game with a three point suspended table. Speed is perfect.Cueing and light sensor auto shut off are perfect. The strobe/weight is present. I have the original instructions. The original owner used this as a display unit only and never played a record on it. Consequently the Yamaha MC cartridge and stylus have had very little use and present as new. The only blemish is around the back of the unit where a bit of house paint has dripped on it when the original owner was painting the room it sat in for 20 years. I was going to build a high end system to compliment the turntable but have abandoned the idea as my listening habits have changed. This has remained while all other turntables have come and gone but now it is time to bid it goodbye. Pictures:
  3. So the wait is on to see if these actually materialise or not. I had put through a cancel request as I was getting cold feet and wanted to knock my order down from 2 to 1. But it just timed out and now they are saying it can’t be canceled as it has been sent. There is no evidence that it has been posted and the post icon hasn’t been activated or any tracking info been entered. I’ve emailed the seller re eta but haven’t heard anything back as yet. Looking more and more likely this is a scam. PayPal should look after us though...
  4. I canceled the sale because I think something is fishy with whole thing. Best to wait and see if they are legitimate.
  5. Yeah they do look too good to be true. I put a couple on PayPal so if it goes belly up eBay should look after me.
  6. Anyone with even a passing interest in what the fuss is all about re vinyl should get onto this ebay deal. The cartridges are worth the asking alone. Audio Technica LP120USB @ $80 inc postage. ps://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Audio-Technica-ATLP120USB-Stereo-Turntable-w-USB-LP-to-DIG-Recording-Piano-BLK2/113722108277?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 I bought 2!! Amateur DJ hour at my place!
  7. Yes they are but I’ve never taken them off. They look like they’re a bit difficult to put back on. They’re kind of a stocking like material.
  8. Definitely not a toy. I kept it ahead of my SL1200 as I felt it was smoother and less mechanical sounding. Detail is right up there with the linear tracking really extracting the information from the grooves.
  9. Item: Technics SL7 Direct Drive Turntable with external power supply Location:Melbourne Price: $475 $440 Item Condition:Excellent Reason for selling:Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:In excellent overall condition with external power supply for quieter operation. I have decided to clear out of all the gear I haven't been using. Linear tracking and deadly accurate speed are two of its virtues along with the abiliity to play standing up. Its taken me a while to want to let go of this beauty but all things must pass. Pictures:
  10. Item: Legend Joey 8I Bookshelf Speakers Location: Melbourne Price: $800 Item Condition: Excellent. Barely Used Reason for selling:Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought these from Carlton Audio less than 2 years ago and they haven't skipped a beat. They were so impressive i sold my ProAc Tablettes not long after getting them. They are in pretty much as new condition as they have been sitting in a second system and have had barely any use. Not a mark on them. I'll eve throw in the stands! Pictures:
