  1. Beautiful amp, and looks so impressive! Unfortunately, not in Vic.
  2. Hi Steveoz, Yes have to agree with you that these are very natural sounding amps and would also likely benefit from a restoration. My first Luxman and likely to buy another one at some point in the future. Unfortunately I have too much equipment that just sits around unused so have decided to let some things go. Currently alternating between a Sansui AU 505 and a Sansui AU 555 in order to decide which of these two will be let go next. Also a couple of Lenco L75s sitting around as spares and I am trying to decide whether or not I will commence another plinth rebuild (t
  3. Further information: The Luxman L-2 is a 33W per channel, built in 1980. I would describe the sound as smooth and build quality on these units is excellent. There are a few restoration/upgrade projects for these amps to be found online. I bought this amp from the original owner approximately 3 years ago. It has done very light duties in that time, being used mainly to drive my Sennheiser HD 650 headphones. I am now using a Sansui AU 555 which was purchased from a fellow SNAer to drive the headphones so its time for this amp to find a new home. I have used the
  4. Further information: I am the original owner and this phono stage has been a very good performer. Have also used together with a SUT and MC cartridge, but now letting it go as I am trying to downsize my collection of hifi equipment.

  5. Hi Gary, I had my Audio Technica AT-1005 II rewired earlier this year by a company based in Scotland called The Vinyl Source (https://www.thevinylsource.co.uk/) - they were a recommnedation on the Lenco Heaven site. You can email Marco and find out if he can do the work you require. I am very happy with the work done and quick turnaround time (my tonearm was back within 8 weeks) and Marco was very quick to respond to my queries. Price is dependant on the wiring you choose. Cheers, Savas
  6. I actually own a couple of the AT3600L cartridges, I buy used albums pretty regularly and don’t always bother to clean them before playing. I agree with you, it really is a great sounding cartridge.
  7. I hear you t_mike regarding the vac drying but my collection of hifi equipment and associated paraphernalia has once again grown out of control, so when something new comes in, something has to go. Cheers Savas
  8. Thank you very much for your detailed post, I really appreciate. I think your suggestion re purchasing an AT95E is probably most sensible thing to do. cheers, Savas
  9. Further information: Too much equipment so I have started to cull. The Luxman L-2 is a 33W per channel, built in 1980. I would describe the sound as smooth and build quality on these units is excellent. There are a few restoration/upgrade projects for these amps to be found online. I bought this amp from the original owner approximately 3 years ago. It has done very light duties in that time, being used mainly to drive my Sennheiser HD 650 headphones.

  10. Item has now been sold pending payment. Kind regards, Savas
  11. Hi V-Tek, thank you for your interest. I have already been PM'd regarding the cartidge so will have to let you know. Kind regards, Savas
  12. Further information: I am selling my KAB EV-1 record cleaner as I have recently purchased an ultrasonic cleaner and need to make space for it. The EV-1 does not come with built in motor so you will need a vacuum cleaner to attach to it. This unit was my first venture into RCMs and has served me very well over the years. The original applicator brush is included in the sale, but in recent times, I have been using paint edger brush to apply cleaning solution and I found this worked better for me. I am also including with the sale a 'Nitty Gritty Style Vac Sweep Replacement Kit' which ha
  13. No writing anywhere unfortunately. Using an old iphone, I will try to get some better pictures uploaded
  14. Further information: Up for sale is my Benz Micro ACE as it is no longer being used, having been replaced by a Denon DL103R in my system. I am the original purchaser and the cartridge has had approximately 300 hours of use in a smoke-free and pet-free environment. This was my first venture into MC cartridges and I did find it was a big step above the previous budget cartridges that I had been using till then.

  15. I have inherited a couple of cartridges in recent times - the green stylus is from an AT 1503 mk 2 tonearm and the red is from a Lenco L75. No markings on either so I was wondering if anyone here might recognise these. Are they any good, and if so, what replacement stylus for each? Thanks for your help.
