  1. @Astrosound Thank you, I only realised my mistake when I was driving to Sydney. all fixed
  2. I've inherited a largish collection of vinyl records, in mostly good condition including som rca living stereo red seal records. I'd like some advice on the best way to sell them, individually or as a collection? I'm not really into trying to catalogue 500 records.
  3. If I didn't have the TD125, I'd be keeping this.
  4. Item: Item: Modded TD150 Location: Country NSW Price: $495 Item Condition: Working Reason for selling: too many turntables Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought a bog standard Thorens TD150 and made a few modifications: Replaced to original plinth with a Tassi Oak Plinth with new feet Removed the resonant base board Replaced the arm board with a Tassi Oak arm board Rewired to get rid of hum Replaced standard arm (also available for purchase) with a Grace 707 arm which is in excellent condition Replaced cartridge with a Ortofon Blue Also cleaned bearing surfaces and relubricated with Linn black oil. The armboard has not been treated and could do with a lick of shellac Overall not the the prettiest turntable but it totally rocks, I have a TD125 as well which is my main deck so it's time to move this little beauty along.

  5. Item: NAD C275 BEE Power Amp. Location: Country NSW Price: $750 now $600 last price reduction, does not include postage Item Condition: Excellent 9/10 Reason for selling: Got my dream amp Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this from BMT a couple of years back. High current delivery which makes it a great match to Magneplanar speakers. Absolutely stable into 4 ohms. Can be configured as a mono block. Reluctant to let it go but, I need to pay for a speaker upgrade so out it goes. Great NAD sound, amazing mid range and plenty of power down below. Auditions in Bathurst welcome. Shipping at buyers expense.
  6. Item: Dynavector P75 Mk3 phono stage Location: Central NSW Price: $550 RRP $775 Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Ultra-low noise MC/MM circuitry Extremely accurate RIAA equalisation Patented PE circuit All conventional MM, MI and high and low output MC cartridges catered for Fully user adjustable, no additional components or soldering required Unique advanced power supply The Dynavector P75 mk3 Phono Stage is a unique Phono stage with many outstanding features that ensure the P75 will out perform other phono stages costing considerably more. The P75 also includes the patent P E (phono enhancing) circuit designed by Dr Tominari to dramatically improve the performance of low output moving coil cartridges. A simple arrangement of jumper settings allows all conventional, MC, MM and MI, high and low output cartridges to be catered for. The P75 also has an advanced power supply that operates from a conventional 12V AC to DC adaptor. This adaptor has absolutely no bearing on the sound quality. The P75 power supply runs at over 1/4MHz. It takes the low grade single voltage DC supply from the ac adapter and converts it to the dual high voltages required for true professional quality audio reproduction. The operating frequency is over 12 times higher than the top of the audio band and it incorporates super low noise wideband regulators in its output stage to give ultra low noise supply rails. The internal P75 power supply is totally self contained and stores many times the maximum possible energy requirements for the phono amplifiers. This means that the quality or size of the external ac adaptor is irrelevant. Increasing the capacity of the external supply will make no difference to the quality of the sound. The mk3 version of the P75, offers a small reduction in noise and distortion. An improved, and very new, type of capacitor adds an improvement to the musical performance. The physical arrangement of the jumpers has been improved, both channels are now symmetrical. There are several more adjustments/settings available. Also the quality of the cabinet finish and packaging has been improved. Price includes the ac power adapter, high quality and fully Australian approved. The P75 is a stand-alone phono to line level amplifier. It can operate with the following cartridge types: NOTE: This table will be updated soon with mk3 updates Cartridge Type Input Sensitivity Gain Loading Low output MC Standard phono stage 0.2mV or 0.15mV 60 & 63dB 30, 100, 470 ohms Low output MC Phono Enhancer* - - Zero ohms High output MC MM, MI 2mV (and 1mV) 40, 46dB (and 53dB) 47k (47,000) ohms Dimensions ( W x D x H ) 133W x 83D x 44H mm Weight 475g *Input sensitivity and gain is determined mainly by the cartridge internal DC coil resistance. Three resistance/gain adjustments available. Pictures: (File photo)
  7. Item: Mac Mini + keyboard, mouse, power supply and hdmi cable Location: Country NSW Price: $175 Item Condition: 7/10 working fine Reason for selling: yet another project and too little time Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:I bought this to set up as a media centre, but my Oppo 103 does the job admirably so I am abandoning the project. its a model A1283 which means it's a Intel Core 2 duo as I understand these things.

  8. Item: Modded TD150 Location: Country NSW Price: $750 Item Condition: Working but could do with a touch up Reason for selling: too many turntables Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought a bog standard Thorens TD150 and made a few modifications: Replaced to original plinth with a Tassi Oak Plinth with new feet Removed the resonant base board Replaced the arm board with a Tasso Oak arm board Rewired to get rid of hum Replaced standard arm (also available for purchase) with a Grace 707 arm which is in good condition Replaced cartridge with a Ortofon Blue Also cleaned bearing surfaces and relubricated with Linn black oil.

  9. Bill is the best most dangerous man I know. After trying out numerous amp/speaker combinations I have settled on the Ayre amp, it beats everything I have had previously in small but important ways. I would love to try the DeVore 3XL which Bill also has, but the price is beyond my reach at the moment anyway the c275bee hooked up via a Classe preamp (now sold), did a pretty good job with my mmg's (NAD also bought from Bill) good luck with your search
  10. Maggie .7 my wife says the 1.7's are too big and the jr149's don't go low enough
  11. That's what it says and confirmed in the email from Ryan Thew's which I posted earlier
  12. Yes you can get single ended to balanced adapters. I'll also throw in a pair of very ordinary balanced cables
  13. And whilst not visible in the photo have the etched (?) red dragon icon on the front panel
  14. Oh and did I mention they are dead quiet (at least with my speakers)
