  1. Looks like the turntable and amp might be snapped up. Aiming to deliver to another SNAer on Friday. Will mark as sold when we’re done. Thanks for the interest though, henning.
  2. Item: AT-LP120 turntable and Cambridge 551P phono stage Location: New Gisborne 3438 Price: $250 and $100 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Audio Technica’s USB-enabled turntable that has an eerie resemblance to a Technics 1200. Not as good as a 1200, but hey, you won’t be getting a 1200 for $250 neither! Moving it on as I’ve upgraded. Turntable is in excellent condition, aside from the dust cover, which is a bit scratchy. Has original cartridge and stylus. Throwing in a cork slipmat for good measure. Also selling a Cambridge Audio MM phono preamp. Selling both for half of retail, coz I’m nice like that 😬 Prefer not to post, so preference given to those who can pick up, or I could maybe deliver to north side of Melbourne. Excellent beginners or second system for 350 clams! Pictures:

    Mounting tonearm in new plinth- drill press required?

    How does this look to you? The whole mounting base is a tight fit, but I only need to drill for the centre portion of it

    Mounting tonearm in new plinth- drill press required?

    That’s the kind of advice I was after! Thanks Full Range 👌
  5. Never done this before, hence a certain amount of trepidation... So I’ve got a new plinth, with a circular cutout on which to mount a 9 inch tonearm. I’ve got a new Jelco arm to put on, so I know exactly where to put the hole for the mounting (I think). Before I go destroying things, I want to make sure I’m using the right tool. So I need to make a 30mm hole, nice and straight down. If it makes any difference, the plinth is ebony, with a piano gloss finish. Do I need to find someone with a drill press? TIA!

    Bookshelf speakers for Line Magnetic tube amp?

    Thanks for taking the time to share your knowledge, everyone. I’ve decided to go with the Spendor s3E. Will report back once I’ve had a good listen!

    Bookshelf speakers for Line Magnetic tube amp?

    Good idea, I might just do that. Probably should’ve posted this in the ‘purchasing advice’ section, too. Haven’t been on the forum for a while, a bit rusty!

    Bookshelf speakers for Line Magnetic tube amp?

    I probably would’ve had a crack at those, but wrong side of the country IIRC
  9. Hi all, just looking for some recommendations for bookshelf speakers to run with my LM518 amplifier. I have been using Usher floorstanders, which I like very much. Due to non-hifi circumstances, I now have to move to a pair of smaller speakers, which will be sitting on a tall cabinet. The amp is 22wpc, so I guess I’d need something reasonably efficient? I’d also rather something with a largish cabinet, to make the transition from floorstanders a little less traumatic! Budget is around $1000, new or second hand. Had a quick listen to some Focal Chorus 706s yesterday, and didn’t mind them. Planning on checking out Dynaudio Emit M10s and Klipsch RP160s. I listen mainly to jazz, soulful electronica, and African music, if that makes any difference. Anyone got a pair of speakers that they reckon I should track down and listen to? TIA!
  10. Item: pair of Usher V-602 floorstanding speakers Location: New Gisborne, Vic Price: $500 Item Condition: Few bumps and scratches. Only cosmetic blemishes- they work perfectly Reason for selling: 3 year old thinks they're his personal playthings Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought these of a fellow SNAer about 3 years back. Love the sound of them- have been running them with a Line Magnetic 518. Cant push the volume past 10 o'clock without risking a visit from the local constabulary, so they should be fine with tube amps with output in double figures. Sound is on the warmer side, if that's your thing (it's certainly mine). Bass goes pretty low- I had a subbie for a bit, but got rid of it in the end. Moving these on as my son seems to think they are some sort of playground equipment. So before he does any real damage, I'm moving to bookshelf speakers, out of harms way. As such, I'd be open to offers of some kind of swap deal. The speakers have a few small bumps and scratches (tweeters, woofers and terminals all perfect), and I've lost the black grills along the way, so I've priced these accordingly. Oh, and they're built like tanks, 36 kg's a piece apparently. So it'd have to be pick-up only (or I could maybe deliver to the northish side of Melbourne. Cheers all! Pictures:
  11. Line Magnetic make a phono stage? Didn't realize that. Looks like I need to start saving again...

    Shuguang Replica WE845 tubes - anyone used them?

    Line Magnetic LM518ia. Had no problem with the stock tubes. But I've had problems with both kinds of upgrade tubes. Never both at once, so just bad tubes I guess. The WE845s held bias just fine, never had any odd noises from them or red plating. Then one day one of them just decided to pack it in- no fireworks or anything, just went gently into that good night...

    Shuguang Replica WE845 tubes - anyone used them?

    Most things I've read about these have been positive. Sound like they are good value for money.

    Shuguang Replica WE845 tubes - anyone used them?

    Goddamnit, one of the Shuguang WE845s just stopped working, out of the blue. Only a few months on them, and wasn't due to a power surge or anything out of the ordinary (as far as I'm aware). Gotta throw the stock tubes back in now ;(

    SOLD: FS: Line Magnetic LM-502CA Dac Photos up

    This is a spectacular DAC for the money. With those tubes rolled in, I bet it sounds absolutely gorgeous. They'll have to pry my LM502 from my cold, dead hands! Many hours of musical enjoyment for whoever grabs this. GLWS
