  1. I'll take this thanks! can pickup from glebe and have just sent you a PM to arrange. Cheers
  2. This forum thread discusses various opamp options : https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/elekit/350640-tu-8500-phono-stage-upgrades-8.html From what I understand, the standard opamp upgrade most people do is OPA2227P (which is what I have done). If you can spend more money then apparently MUSE01 can provide better performance.
  3. Just put some new caps in mine only last weekend. There's lots of great reviews for it online as delivering unmatched price/performance. Doctor john cheaptubeaudio covers it in detail (6 part review series) and in the context of other high end equipment (including driving the japanese kondo ongaku): https://cheaptubeaudio.blogspot.com/2015/03/review-elekit-tu-8500-full-function.html
  4. hi there robboy3 welcome aboard. I'm a bit of a newby diyer too - what's your current project?
  5. Many thanks for posting Christian. I’ve decided to go for another offer. This WTB is now Found, thanks all
  6. Item: Step up transformer SUT for low output MC carts Price Range: approx $1.5k max, but would consider going higher. Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Hi there - I am considering buying some Lundahl LL1931 SUTs from K&K audio but thought I might put the feelers out to see if anyone has a similar or better quality pair (would consider any brand) that they would like to sell second hand. FYI my current cart is Dynavector 20x2L
  7. yeah crazy good so far (only a few days in). smooth, clear, silent, with some sort of heft/thickness, crisp bass would be my first impressions. the higher output (4V) was immediately noticeable, my low power system (9W power amp) benefits from this. there's a liveliness/jump factor there, which could be just attributable to the higher output level. definitely a happy Abbas customer, was well worth the 2 month wait (3 week build, 7 week ship from kiev).
  8. Hi - i'll take this & can do pickup from marrickville. pm sent! cheers
  9. i'll also pile on the elekit love - love mine as well!
  10. Just wondering if anyone knows about the volume control/remote that comes with the Spring 2 and how it is implemented (eg digital or analogue domain)? I'd mainly like to know whether there is any loss of bits in NOS mode that might compromise the sound quality in anyway. I haven't been able to find my info on this online through searches. Just checking to see if it can be used as a full function digital preamp (eg like the NAD M51), which can connect straight into a power amp, with the volume attenuation not causing the loss of any important bits. Cheers
  11. Hi there - can i ask when this was originally purchased? Thank you
  12. I think you mean the 'moment of inertia' of the counterweight (mass x square of the distance from the pivot). This is a different concept to 'momentum' - i don't think you've used the term correctly here.
  13. Hi there - just a question on this - which one in this webpage does your item correspond to? Do you know the model of Lundahl in yours? http://www.kandkaudio.com/moving-coil-phono-step-up-kits/ Many thanks
