  1. CJ gear has always interested me however when I check the prices the interest promptly fades. $30,000 for a push pull stereo amp aint chump change!
  2. Further information: Purchased a couple of months ago and hardly used. I have the original invoice, packaging, manual etc. 33w of class A power into 8 ohms and more into 4 ohms. Has more grunt than you would expect. Built in the UK and RRP is $9500 AUD I would consider a part trade for a valve power amp or monoblocks of 20w or more. Photos:
  3. Could be one of the differences between the + model and the basic model.
  4. Here’s a pic of my Wand + showing the correct cable routing. Notice the cable threads through a small clamp creating a loop which has no tension. You’ll also notice a small rubber sleeve on the threaded rod that the anti skate nylon thread attaches. That rubber sleeve is there to keep the thread in the intended place. Perhaps you know all this but thought I’d share in case it might help
  5. Cable routing, if done as intended for the Wand, should have no impact on anti skate. If it does then something isn't right. Do you have the instructions for the arm? I find the Wand arm to be a very clever design and the easiest I've come across to set up so your comments make me curious.
  6. @Marcusperth 10 ohm load is way to low. It will strangle the Hana SL and make it sound very dull. Id suggest 100ohm would be better and around 250ohm to 300ohm will be better. Another thing is the TT/arm/cart set up could have changed in transit. The TT should be set up from scratch in its final resting place. You might need some help if your not knowledgeable and or don’t have the correct tools.
  7. Did you recheck the TT / Cart set up before use? - arm alignment/cart alignment - VTF - VTA - Azimuth - Cart Load And are you using the Project Phono Box S2? What phono preamp was being used when you heard it previously? The Wand arm is tremendous so I don't think that is your problem
  8. @Clarets see below for small and successful http://www.acousticplan.de/html/phonomaster_english.html
  9. Cool thanks. Supratek can sound good. You could also find a used one of these easily given your location: Herron VTPH-2A Modwright PH 9.0

  11. Firstly to make the suggestions helpful can you tell us your budget?
  12. These were the first few that came up with this search phrase: stereonet preamp impedance match Your answer will be here mate.
  13. 91db 6 ohm minimum. I can’t believe how the Yamamoto drives them.
