  1. Hello, I’m sorry but I should have updated this listing before now. As it didn’t sell when I needed it to, then I was messed around by an eBayer. So I had decided to keep it. And although I don’t know it’s actual current value, I thought it is a far nicer TT than what it was going to sell for a while back. But now some time has passed though, and I may well be open to expressions of interest or just set new price on this forum, as I am done with eBay. Are you in Melbourne? regards, Phil
  2. Item: Luxman PD-290 direct drive turntable Location: Melbourne Price: $500 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: I now have a Linn Sondek Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is no longer an ebay auction, and after some research I think I have set a price as good as or lower than others I found. Quartz locking, direct drive, auto-lift up record player. Made in Japan. In very good condition, just the usual ageing of the perspex lid, which otherwise works well, holding firm at any angle. I have no decent packaging to post this, so free personal delivery around Melbourne. The Luxman PD 290 is a semi-automatic, direct drive turntable with integrated tonearm. Specifications Type: semi-auto integrated turntable Drive method: quartz-locked direct-drive Platter: 300mm, 1.6kg Speeds: 33.33 and 45rpm Wow and flutter: 0.03% wrms Signal to noise ratio: 70dB Tonearm: straight arm, static balance Effective length: 214mm Overhang: 15mm Dimensions: 440 x 148 x 360mm Weight: 8kg Pictures:
  3. †hank you for dropping off the puc, nice to meet you
  4. Awesome stands, nice work, and nice to meet you, thank you
  5. and while I was in there I was going to change the voltage over from 120V. I had bought it from the States, and was happily running it on 120V in an otherwise 240 system. But I can not see the changeover switch referred to on the back anywhere. If it can't be changed, I will include a step down transformer for a Melbournian, or discount an interstate buyer the cost of one, to avoid posting one.
  6. So here is a better shot of the Alps volume pot
  7. now that's interesting, kinda makes it eminently more useful. I'll have to pop the lid again to check that out again. thank you Doug, regards, Phil.
  8. I was wrong, the volume pot is not on a shaft, but still there is plenty of room in there to install a remote volume if it is do-able.
  9. Yes it is manual volume, but with all that room in there, and the volume being on a shaft, I'm pretty sure a remote controlled volume motor could be installed. Earle Weston easily retro fitted one for me on an old valve amp of his design. And it looks even better in the flesh, really only selling due to necessity. Phil
  10. price drop on this preamp, plus updating the fact that it can be set for 240V
