    SOLD: FS: Accuphase C280

    Wow, I didn't think you'd sell this! Great preamp. A great seller too, folks, buy with confidence. GLWTS mate.
  2. Item: Rega P3-24 Ortofon 2M Bronze, with Groovetracer sub-platter and platter upgrades and white belt Location: Perth Price: $1400 Item Condition: Very good. 8/10. Some very minor blemishes Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, Bank transfer Extra Info: Here it is. The Lime green Rega P3-24 turntable with all the upgrades you'll need. It has the Groovertracer reference sub-platter, Delrin platter and Rega white belt upgrades, with an Ortofon 2M Bronze cartridge. It has an external power supply with 33/45 electronic speed selection. Bias plays a part, of course, but this review on the sub-platter pretty much sums it up: The improvements are immediately noticeable and equivalent to moving up to the next price class, and perhaps beyond. The soundstage snaps into focus with greater clarity. The noise floor drops substantially, along with surface noise, which is pushed deep into the background as it is on more expensive tables. And on the Delrin platter: The sonic benefits include well balanced frequency response with no loss in dynamics. Upper frequencies are better defined which in turn allows more inner detail to shine through. The improved presentation of instruments within the soundstage provides better imaging. The sub-platter and platter alone are worth about $850, and the cartridge is about $400 to replace. I have loved this rig. It has served me well, but the call to upgrade cannot go unheeded, so it's time for a new home. I have all the original packaging and can ship anywhere at buyers expense. Pictures:

    Used to have a pair of these matched with a Phase Linear 700b power and 4000 pre. My dad's old gear... Spitting chips that I sold it all... GLWTS
  4. So US plug into the wall, or US plug into the device?
  5. Why did you specify US plugs? Need to use an adaptor...

    That is a very good price. Why did you buy two.

  10. Item: Lindemann Musicbook:25 streaming preamp/CD player Location: Perth Price: $3300 Item Condition: 9.5/10 Zero blemishes or marks Reason for selling: Upgrading turntable Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, Bank Deposit Extra Info: I have all packaging for this unit so can ship anywhere at buyer's expense. To paraphrase one review: The Lindemann Musicbook:25 is a DAC/Pre with two analog, two coax and two optical inputs, simultaneously live XLR and RCA outputs plus coax and Toslink out. And Ethernet. And WLAN. And CD transport. And a Class A headphone output on the front panel. I purchased this unit new from Audio Magic and it is brilliant. It is a very well regarded and recommended component, and performs admirably. Build quality is insane, with a 6.5mm aluminium case and a handsome, understated display. I had is connected via ethernet cable and it never missed a beat. The app, on Android and iOS is intuitive and easy to use. There is nothing I could say about this unit that isn't positive as far as performance and ease of use.
