  1. Spec amp from japan. Seen used ones on SNA occasionally Lavardin, really good ss integrated.
  2. That’s understandable. Just surprised at the huge discrepancy.
  3. Hmmm...Takatsuki definitely don’t cost that much. Heard them last year at a hifi show They are about $2300 from local distributor.
  4. Hi would u have an estimate of hours played since retipped?
  5. Item: AUDIO NOTE-KONDO io cartridge Location: Inner Melbourne Price: $3600 (price drop) Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: An early example of Audio Note-Kondo io mc phono cartridge. I purchased this from Japan and had the cartridge checked and retipped by ANA Mighty sound in France. Retipped with Van del haul stylus. Damper have been checked and suspension rebuilt. So this is literally a New cartridge. Played for about 10 hours for testing since rebuilt. They are quite rare and hardly come up for sale. The cost of the rebuilt alone is in excess of $2000. I have quite a few cartridges so just have to let go some to better home. Known as one of the best low output mc cartridge designed by Kondo san. Output 0.1 mv with 1 ohm impedance so will work with a minimum of x30 step up ratio and high gain phono stage. ANA mighty sound is highly reputable cartridge repairer and builder in France. Their Sculpture A3 cartridges were used by Thomas Schick, Frank Schroeder in Sibatone (western electric), Vitus and Thrax demo rooms among others in the recent 2019 Munich high end show. Additional info for those interested: http://anamightysound.com/ https://www.tonepublications.com/analogaholic/ana-mighty-sound/ François from Ana mighty have repaired and rebuilt Koetsu and SPU for me previously. They are always careful to ensure the original sound signature of the cartridge design are retained, especially for the classics like koetsu and AN/Kondo.

  6. These are silver cables? The silver diamond retails for nearly $10,000 for 3m pair!
  7. Buy from Nick, Audiophile. He is now located in Heidelberg West
  8. I heard Supravox open baffle speakers in the recent Munich high end show and was very impressed. As most of you would know, Supravox is a French speaker driver manufacturer from way back. They make field coil drivers as well. Their open baffle speakers uses alnico drivers and have very wide baffle for the bass. The interesting thing seems that the side panels of the baffle are hinged and the angle can be adjusted to suit the room. I spoke to Supravox recently and they said there is a distributor in Melbourne. Trying to get more info. At the moment.
  9. Good price! I think these are more than $1600 new a pair now.
  10. Hi -what is the step up ratio of the Tamura (TR351?) 1:10 and 1:15? -is the step up hard wired? Can’t see them in the photos -how many inputs, only mc? thanks
  11. Lots of option out there. Get an Idler drive. Lenco 75 maybe. Allow for service and plinth.
