  2. Item: AUDIONOTE io mc cartridge Location: Inner Melbourne Price: $3,200 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.

  4. Item: RCA 2A3 tubes, matched pair black plates Location: Inner Melbourne Price: $440 pair plus shipping Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: 1940’s dual Black plate matched pair RCA 2A3 that I bought a few years ago. I have never used them not even plug into an amp. Testing etc from the original listing that should be applicable: “WWII production RCA Victor 2A3 power triode amplifier tubes. These are NOS military grade versions of the 2A3 and the boxes are not original. They have dark black plates, dual [] or "D" getters for longer life, hanging filaments for low noise potential, large round matching top and bottom mica spacers, and a long center support rod extending the entire length of the tube elements. Both tubes have the RCA "sign" with 2A3 stamped into the glass. Each tube is also base labeled with the iconic RCA logo. One Tube 1, has the U. S. military inventory code of VT-95 on the base. The other Tube has a portion of the RCA military corporate code CRC on the base along with "2A3". Just above this labeling, some original military description has been ground off. These tubes were tested for mutual/transconductance (Gm), plate current, gas, noise, and shorts on Dan Nelson calibrated TV-7/U tube tester using a digital meter upgrade for greater accuracy. The TV-7/U minimum recommended value (65%) for the 2A3 tube is 38 (Gm=1900) As pictured left to right with TV-7/U test results, Gm, plate current and date codes/dates: TV-7/U Gm Plate Current Production code/date 1. 74 3700 35 mA S3 May-Jun 1942 2. 71 3550 36 mA K1E Jan-Feb 1943. “ Photos:
