  1. Aaah. Yes. You Don't. That reminds me I need to put photos up of that. I will do directly. Thanks for the reminder.
  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. A solid 8/10. Some very minor blemishes Reason for selling: Bauer DPS3 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, Michell Engineering underslung counterweight, 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. The Michell counterweight cost me $240 from the UK in about April this year. There are two counterweights; one for cartridges 3-6 grams and one for cartridges 6-13 grams. Both allow the lid to be closed during play. 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. I would consider separating, but think the unit benefits greatly from the upgrades so would prefer to sell as a package. Pictures:
  3. Do you use your office for critical listening? If not, what's the problem? I'm assuming it's just for background sound while you work. If the CD player is not skipping, what's the problem? We all listen to **** sound in our cars, so if it's playin, and making sound, what's the problem? We all want to be audiophiles, but I think the time and place for that is when you are in an environment in which you listen critically. Sorry if this is not the advice you're after, and if not, please disregard.
  4. Hi mate. Just wondering if you bought this unit new or second hand .
  5. Thanks, Mr Door. It is a great unit.
  6. Item: Musical Fidelity M1 DAC-A Location: Perth Price: $300 + shipping Item Condition: 8/10 - some slight marks on top Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfer Extra Info: I have had this M1 DAC-A since new. It is the . After a move about 4 years ago, it has sat in storage, which is a total waste of a good unit. Great sounding, with lovely, punchy bass and a lovely, open soundstage as highlights. http://www.musicalfidelity.com/m1dac/ From https://www.audiostream.com/content/musical-fidelity-m1-dac-new-one The Musical Fidelity M1 DAC is easy to listen to and just as easy to like. I'd characterize its overall presentation as being on the taught ("toight like a tiger" for Goldmember fans) and resolute side. I'd also suggest that this perception varies somewhat depending on the input: Toslink seems to favor attack or edges over harmonic density whereas USB adds back some weight with less edge. Overall, music is presented in a convincingly portrayed stage with a very distinct separation of sonic elements regardless of size or complexity of source material. The M1s ability to unravel musical complexities is a pleasure to partake in and perhaps one of its most compelling features. Things sound clean, lively and as snappy as the music demands. There's never a sense of sonic grunge or a lack of dynamic rigor. Music moves. From https://www.stereophile.com/content/musical-fidelity-m1-dac With the M1 DAC, I heard a degree of low-level resolution I'd never before heard from a DAC. I think this may have had to do with the M1's astonishingly low noise floor: an absence of hash, of electronic grunge, of anything that compromised purity or sweetness of tone. It has a couple of very slight scuffs on the top, but I had trouble getting them visible in photos. I have all packaging, so shipping should not be a problem. I am working on rotating some of the images. Don't know why they are upside down... Photos:
  7. Item: Spin Clean Record Washing System Location: Perth Price: $70 + shipping Item Condition: Opened but totally unused Reason for selling: Bought a different kind Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: https://www.jbhifi.com.au/project/pro-ject-spin-clean-record-washer-system/650709/ I bought this about a year ago, with the intention of going through my records and cleaning them all. but decided not to, so I have this kit with no use for it.

I can ship it, but may have to do so through Pack&Send so may be a bit pricey. It may fit in an Aus Post bag, but that is at buyer's risk Photos:
