  1. Item: Calibrated Microphone Price Range: Neg Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking to do some room measurements and I need to either buy or borrow a calibrated microphone. Any suggestions? Thanks All
  2. New to the collection, this black beauty was made around the time when the first Star Wars was released in 1977. The table is nicknamed "Darth Vader" and you can see why. Micro Seiki has some design aspects in this table.
  3. I'm very happy with all my systems to a point I've found a sound I'm after with what I can afford and Geez it sounds great. I still have interests in other things in life as well.
  4. Just bought one with only 5 left.....Hurry at this price.
  5. Great price for the AT-VM540ML https://www.amazon.com.au/Audio-Technica-VM540ML-MicroLine-Turntable-Cartridge/dp/B01MEI1RPC/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=audio%2Btechnica%2Bcartridge&qid=1614679134&sr=8-1&th=1&psc=1

  7. After doing some research the AT-7V is one serious bargain. I've emailed IP gear to see if anymore stock will be available.
  8. He has contacts in Japan. I've bought a couple of things off him. Just make sure you know what your buying and go through it with a fine tooth comb.
  9. Item: MM Cartridge / Stylus Price Range: $300 or less Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking for either New or Used MM Cartridge with Stylus to suit a medium mass arm. Used must have less low hours. Let me know what you have?
  10. Looking to purchase a reasonably good cartridge / stylus for my Sansui SR-929. Is the Audio Technica VM540ML still good value in 2021? Are there other models or brands to consider around the similar price point? Thanks for all your comments.
  11. Originally the table had a Denon 103SA and it sounded really nice. Edit: I have a AT440mlb fitted to my other table so I will give that a go until I find a replacement.
  12. Sorry for the confusion @LucI've been searching for a 929 for ages and finally bought one today from a gentleman who has one of the best Sansui collections I've ever seen. Really nice chap as well. Can't believe how well built this table is. It's got some weight to it. Still has the original feet and rubber mat. Currently looking for a cart, any suggestions?
  13. Found a beautiful table today. It needed a bit of a clean and a few minor repairs but for a 40+ year old table its now singing again.
  14. I am looking forward to hearing them with my class A tube amp. At 45wrms a channel, should be a nice match. Harbeth and most British speakers like to be driven with amps with power to spare. The AU-1111 MOS Vintage is one well designed amp with unbelievable built quality with top notch components.
  15. Interesting how they use the term "Reference Stands". Reference to what? I couldn't find any info regarding this? My Skylan stands weigh around 10kgs compared to the Ton Tracer stands at 2.79kgs. Imo, the Skylan stands also look nicer as well. They have both top aborbsion pads as well as bottom spikes and can be filled to dampen them. I'm very happy with my purchase ☺️ Currently running the mosfet and she sound sublime with the Harbeths.
  16. I have to say, the AU-1111 MOS Vintage is the crown winner "Hear" BUT I need to revisit the AU-111 since I haven't heard it for sometime and I have a feeling it's going to be a challenge to decide which I'd prefer. The MOS Vintage has everything.... power, dynamics, punch, wide sound stage, depth, 3D imaging, lovely midrange, accurate top end. Goose bumps galore..
  17. Looking for reviews on the Sota Turntables? What models you're using with what type arm installed etc?
  18. Awesome speakers. I was very lucky to have scored a set with Skylan stands at a rediculious price. GLWTS
  19. Item: Sansui SR-929 Turntable Price Range: Neg Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Looking for a Sansui SR-929 turntable. Must be in nice condition. Pm if you have one and willing to sell. Thanks
  20. Hi Dale, The Harbeths are hard to beat. I've just purchased a pair and are extremely happy to the point I'm not interested in an upgrade anytime soon or in the near future. They pretty much do everything right. IMO the mid bass - midrange is the most important aspect of a loud speakers sound reproduction and Harbeth do that beautifully. Have a listen to both brands. There's others to consider as well like Spendor, KEF etc. Good luck, happy listening.
  21. They certainly have that magic feel to them that just keeps you engaged and not getting bored. I've heard some systems lately that cost a lot more and they just don't have that sinergy. As you know the design has been around since the late 60's but now perfected and with more SPL output. The new 8" radial mid bass driver puts out some serious bass as well but they're so bl##dy addictive. Next stage is the most important, room treatment - accoustics.
  22. Haven't heard the 40.2. I would say they would be similar to the Spendor S100's - SP100's which I have heard. These SHL5P's came up for a deal of the year and I couldn't resist. They're also bigger than you may think and the Skylan stands are a must, expecally having them sand or rice filled. I'm pretty done with speakers and these are keepers for sure. They have fantastic mid bass / midrange which is very important to me because it's the hardest part to get right. I haven't tried them on my AU-111 tube integrated yet but I reckon it could be even more magic.
  23. Item: Linn Sondek LP12 turntable. Price Range: Neg Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Looking for a Linn Sondek LP12 turntable.
  24. SHL5 plus' The 40.2' would be too big for my room.
