  1. I have 3 phono amps at the moment, I was thinking of offering it up for sale as the puffin was part of a second system upstairs, but it never got much use so I dismantled the system and the puffin gets swapped in and out on my main system now and again with the other two phono amps
  2. I have the puffin and also had the budgie (which I sold). The puffin is quite a versatile unit. It is very easy to configure. I had set it up with a DL-103 which it easily had enough gain for. Easy to adjust the sound for those records that are less than stellar and you can save up to 4 user settings. With the puffin I have also hooked it up to my laptop and phone playing Spotify. I'm thinking of putting the puffin up for sale, send me a pm if interested.
  3. yeah I know, I feel bad about that too. There is always somebody left out 😀

  5. I have had my DV Karat 23rs mkii running for just over a month now and can say I am really happy with it. The retip was done by Dmitry in Vladivostok. Thanks to Wimbo for providing details. Turnaround was quick, just less than 4 weeks door to door.
  6. Hi Dean, I’ll take the unused pair if available if not the used pair. Cheers John
  7. Only tried Ortofon 2m blue, Hana SL, modded DL-103's and DV Karat 23rs.
  8. Item: Denon DL-103, rosewood body, line contact, ruby cantilever Location: Sydney, 2077 Price: $270 Item Condition: 8/10 Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank transfer Extra Info: I had purchased this just over a year ago (from fleabay) as a backup cartridge to my other DL-103 that was being re-bodied. Original owner said he put about 100hrs on it and I probably put about 20 hours on it. Stylus looks to be in good condition. Rose wood body, potted in bees wax. It is on the heavy side at 11gms. Can post at buyers expense. Pictures:
  9. I have the same finish in the BR1 and it really does look fantastic. The resolution and bass is just spot on. GLWTS
  10. I have to say thanks to ArneS. What a difference! I have wooden floorboards and a tt on a sideboard. On my travels today I decided to stop at Bunnings on my way home and see if any improvement could be made. The first was to try the tt, which was hard to tell if the sound had tightened up, so I continued next to the speakers. Wow what a difference, the bass was tighter and the highs were more defined, but I was also hearing some sort of distortion on the highs, like it was over defined. It just didn't sound right, so I thought I might lower the VTA on the tonearm as I knew I had it slightly raised and what do you know the distortion disappeared. The only thing I can think of is that I had the VTA slightly higher to compensate for the bass sounding slightly boomy when it was lower. The sound quality by using the vibration pads has made a very noticeable improvement, especially on wooden floors. Without a doubt great bang for buck improvement, will continue and try other components and see how that goes.
  11. Item: Ortofon 2M Blue Cartridge Location: Hornsby, Sydney Price: $150 Item Condition: Cartridge is in excellent condition, has had about 60 hours on it Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Comes with original packaging, screwdriver, stylus brush and small head screws. Was going to keep it for a backup cart but more than likely it would just sit in the drawer, better if someone can enjoy it. Purchased in Dec 2016 from Stereophonic. PM me for postage quote if required. Pictures:
  12. Hi all, Glad I found this site. I got a new Project debut turntable for xmas which was fairly easy to setup, but I'd like to expand my knowledge of basic hifi so I can gain a few tips and tricks on how to improve the sound from my Vinyl collection. Cheers John
