  1. Thanks, I had interest via PM in the motor as well, so that would be the key items done. I'm thinking we'll see what else folks would be interested in and in the meantime I'll try to figure out some way of divvying up the price? Honestly I'm open to suggestions as long as it works out for everybody.
  2. Item: Rega RP40, no TT PSU Location: Sydney 2106 Price: $600 pickup Item Condition: See below Reason for selling: Bought a new table Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: This is the 40th anniversary edition of the Rega Planar 3. More info here (PDF): http://www.livingsound.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/Rega-RP40-Anniversary-Information-Sheet.pdf The TT PSU on this table blew, so I wired in a connector for the low voltage 24V supply with a series resistor to drop the voltage a bit. It works fine on 33RPM, and I wasn't able to tell any difference to before. I think the cartridge needs replacing, as I can't get it distortion-free in the inner grooves. The wallwart doesn't say Rega on it (24V, 0.35A), but that's what I got with it. The tonearm lift is slow to come down - maybe 15 seconds. Googling it seems this is fairly common, the silicone greases gums up over time and needs to be cleaned out or replaced. Given that it's already incomplete, I'm wondering if there'd be interest in the parts e.g. RB303 arm, 24V motor, glass platter etc. I'm thinking maybe this would be a good deal for people looking to upgrade with those parts, and/or get a plinth for a project etc. Please post here in the thread if so (will be too hard to keep track of in PM). Also please ask specific questions in the thread if there's something you want me to check, as I haven't used the table in some time.

  3. Item: Cambridge 551R Location: Sydney 2106 Price: $100 Item Condition: Fair, electronic issues (see below) Reason for selling: No longer in use Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Working but some specific issues to note: One of the front power amp channels has a wonky frequency response. Workaround : set it to biamp mode and use amp channels 6 and 7 for the fronts. (Assuming you only need 5.1) Or, set it to preamp mode and use an external amp/s. Every now and then, it won't lock onto the HDMI signal after power-on. Workaround: switch to another input then back again. Every now and then, like after an hour or two hours, the sound cuts out for a second or two. This happens on Netflix but not Blu-ray, that I noticed anyway. Might be related to the previous issue. Workaround: ignore it. Even with the above, I think the asking price is dirt cheap. Local sale and if it turns out to not work out for you you can bring it back (within a reasonable time, say 2 weeks). Please feel free to ask questions in the thread and reserve PMs to arrange purchase, thank you Photos: \
  4. It stopped working on the same channel again. I'm going to withdraw the ad until I figure out what's going on with it.
  5. I connected it back into my HT and watched a movie, left it on all night and used it again today. No crackling or static. I did have some in the previous system setup but I'm fairly sure that was the AVR. Capacitator pics. On one side there is some brown residue, looks like these are probably original then? ... hm, they don't want to upload. You can see them here -> https://www.dropbox.com/sh/4ad56imqykefj8h/AABz-dabiRR3H-He8fottaVya?dl=0
  6. Hi, sorry for the delayed response, I didn't have notifications turned on properly. 1. I don't know, but not while I've had it (three years). 2. I don't know, they are Jamicon 15,000 uF 63V. 3. No, it doesn't look it. I can try taking some internal photos tomorrow if that would help - ?
  7. It may not be the fuses but it can't hurt to check. If this is the right picture, it looks as though the power supply fuses are on either side of the bank of capacitors in the middle - BTW you did do this (from the manual) - "Turn off the system and wait for the amp to cool. Then push the front panel power switch in and out to reset the protection devices. "?
  8. Hi Steve, no worries at all. They are a bit hard to get to in this amp as the left and right power supplies are mounted behind the front panel (vertically) and it's a squeeze to get to the lower pair of fuses on each side. (Helps to have an assistant with small fingers!) Their newer amps may be easier e.g. I know the RMB-1066 has a single central (horizontal) board with all three power supplies on it, and the fuses are easy to access. Which amp do you have? I think the best thing to do is just pop the lid and locate the fuses.
  9. Item: Rotel RB-985 Location: Sydney 2106 Price: $300 pickup only Item Condition: Fair cosmetics, fully working Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: One channel on this amp stopped working so I used that as an excuse for an upgrade, turns out it just needed a fuse. (Each channel has two fuses in the DC supply rails.) So it's working again, I've tested all channels today and they're working properly. Too large and heavy to ship, pickup/meet w/ cash only please and priced accordingly. Depending on where you are in Sydney I can probably arrange to meet you half-way. Please note that these amps were produced from 1995 to 1998 so it's over 20 years old. Thanks for looking, please feel free to ask any questions in this thread and reserve PMs to arrange actual purchase. Photos:
  10. Is one of the red neons not working by any chance? (Just wondering, cuz those look a lot like my old pair )
  11. No, there is more than one plugin for the 2x4 platform. You can only load a config file into the plugin that created it.
  12. You can only load a config file into the plugin that created it. Presumably the OP has that plugin and would know what it is. [Edit] Yes, there is more than one plugin for the 2x4 (original) platform.
