  1. If your music laptop is a Mac you could Pure Vinyl software from Channel D in conjunction with a digital audio interface with Mic pre-amps. The signal from your cart. is amplified and digitised by the digital audio interface and the software applies RIAA correction in the digital domain (as well as other editing if you feel inclined). You can record each record as you play it and add it to your digital library. I've used this with good results using a Tascam UH-7000. Another option to consider, although not inexpensive, could be the Sugarcube range of digital phonostages, some of which look to have digital output. I've not used one but they appear to be well received.
  2. Sold pending payment. Thanks for all the interest.
  3. Pick-up preferred, but happy to consider postage / courier. I haven't looked into costs - happy to discuss if interested. The Stingray has passive volume control, balance and source selection, including tape loop and sub out.
  4. Item: Manley Stingray EL84 Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $2,450 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Owned from new (2007) and has spent most of the last 10 years in storage. I’ve enjoyed using it occasionally over the last couple of years but this is really too good to use in my office. Includes original box, bias trim tool, multi-meter and fuses. Comes with Russian EL84M valves installed plus the original Manley branded EL84M valves and original small signal valves. Photos:
  5. Hi - I'd like to buy these if still available. Thanks, Stuart
  6. Sold pending payment and pickup. Thanks for your interest.
  7. Yeah - inadvertently hit the post button when I was writing. Should all be there now!
  8. Item: Linn LP12, Valhalla & Ittok Location: Frankston, VIC Price: $2,000 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Too many turntables Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, EFT Only Extra Info: LP12 turntable form the mid eighties (S/N 63,840) with walnut plinth, Valhalla power supply and Ittok arm. As you can see from the pictures the 'table is in very good conditions although would benefit from a bit of a dust and polish. The motor was replaced in 2005 and hasn't seen much use over the past 8 years. Springs for the lid were replaced around the same time, as was the belt and the deck was fully serviced. As you can see I have the original packaging, including manual, however this is something that I'm not at all confident in posting so would very much prefer local pickup. Pictures:
  9. Item: 2 x Devialet Silver Phantoms + Dialogue Location: Frankston, Vic Price: $5,000 Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: No longer getting used since moving house - too many systems Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Got these from Paris last year and was amazed that they lived up to the hype and withstood the test of extended listening. We moved to a smaller house earlier this year and they've had very little use since. It's been a tough decision to work out which system to keep and which to sell - still not sure that this is the right decision! The Silver Phantoms provide a wonderfully clear and engaging presentation that quickly has you forgetting the system (at least until the bass line kicks in) and getting into the music, no matter the genre. Each Phantom has an optical input, as does the Dialog, allowing you to connect various devices - TV, games console, media streamer etc. The Devialet Spark application allows you to stream music stored on your computer or phone/tablet, as well as integrating services such as Tidal, Deezer, Spotify, Qobuz and internet radio stations and podcast services. I have all the original packaging. Local sale preferred as I'm not keen on shipping. Pictures:
  10. I found the Disco Antistat worked well enough, but quickly ditched the supplied cleaning fluid in favour of L'Art du Son. The better fluid resulted in a more thorough clean and eliminated the occasional residue issue I had with the Knosti fluid (and you really don't want residue issues with a DV17 cart).
  11. Item: Klipsch Heresy II Location: Frankston Price: $1,000 Item Condition: Good, some minor cosmetic marks Reason for selling: No longer used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank transfer Extra Info: A sealed box design with a 12" bass driver and horn loaded mid and high frequency drivers, the Heresy II is a small but sensitive 'speaker offering great clarity and speed. The Heresy was introduced in 1957 and has been in the Klipsch lineup in one form or another since. One of the great things about these 'speakers is that they are at their best sitting on the floor, hard up against the wall and out of the way. No need to mess around with stands or positioning intrusively into the room. I've owned these from new (perhaps 15 years?) and used them in a number of different systems and houses where they've never failed to put a smile on my face. Most recently they have been part of the family system, paired with Luxman integrated and Squeezebox. Mechanically and electrically in very good condition, the cabinets are showing their age with a few nicks and scratches. Given the black finish these should be pretty easy to touch up for an as-new appearance. Pictures:
  12. Item: Thorens TD 166 mk2 Location: Frankston Price: $300 Item Condition: Good - minor marks to lid and chassis Reason for selling: Too many turntables Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Pickup preferred - no box One of my spare turntables that very rarely gets used. Good working order. Pictures:
  13. Item: Tannoy System 15 DMT mk2 Location: Frankston Price: $3,500 Item Condition: Good condition, some minor cosmetic marks and wear in places on cabinet Reason for selling: Not been used for a while - time to thin the collection Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Pickup preferred, although happy for you to arrange shipping at your risk. They are very heavy and don't have boxes. Pair of very high quality studio monitors, featuring 15" dual concentric point source drivers. Mechanically and electrically in very good condition however there are some minor marks to the cabinets with the finish worn in places.
