  8. Item: Krix Acoustix Mk2 Speakers Location: Toorak Gardens Adelaide Price: $890 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded so no longer needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These won speaker of the year in 2015 at the Melbourne Hifi show. I paid $1695 for them about 18 months ago and they've been very well looked after. Never been thrashed. I can include the stands for an extra $125. Sorry they're pickup only as I don't have the original boxes. No marks apart from blu-tac stains on the underside. Happy to demo! Pictures:
  9. Music Hall tt in very good condition. No scratches or marks on plinth or lid apart from a small ding on front left corner. This is hardly visible in normal light and does not affect performance. The price does not include the cartridge but I can include Audio Technica 440 mlb cartridge with low hours ( about 60-70 ) for an extra $150. I've replaced the original counterweight with a slightly heavier one ( genuine M. H. ). This is a great sounding combo and I'm only selling due to getting the upgrade itch. Comes with original packaging, screw-on record clamp,owners manual and transport screws. Happy to post at buyers expense, about $30 I think. Also happy to demo.
  10. No need to apologise mate. You're right , it's more of a sideways move than an upgrade , but I just get the itch every year or two for something different.
  11. I'm using an Audio Technica 440 mlb......sounds pretty damn fine. Gonna put it on the new P3 soon. Cheers!

  13. Hey all.....I thought I'd share this recent experience. When playing a brand new record the other day, the sound was fuzzy and distorted, so naturally, I gave the stylus a good brushing. Still fuzzy. Tightened the earth wire. Still fuzzy. Checked tracking force. Checked interconnects. Swapped around. Tightened plugs. Checked ports for dust on turntable, pre-amp and amp. Cleaned record with anti-static cleaner. Still fuzzy! I then realised that the record was defective in some way. It had to be. So I returned it and swapped it for another one (different band altogether). I played the new record. Still fuzzy. I decided to give up for a couple of days and gather my thoughts as it was starting to make my brain hurt. After a few days I happened to be in a camera shop when I saw that they sold those small, flip-out magnifying glasses. My eyes, not being what they used to be ( I'm 2 weeks shy of 50 ) couldn't see the incredible amount of crap on the stylus. It was almost completely covered in dark brown filth with only about one fifth of the diamond tip visible. It also had a hair actually wrapped around it! The sound was better than it's ever been after this filth was removed ( with record cleaner and stylus brush ). So....my advice to all you people of a certain age is......magnify ! Just out of interest, this is my system. Yamaha R-S700 receiver Krix Acoustix speakers Yamaha CD S700 cd player Music Hall 5.1 turntable Audio Technica 440 mlb cartridge Cambridge Audio 551 preamp
