  1. Item: Dynavox Tube Preamp TPR-43 Location: Mornington Peninsula Vic Price: $200 + postage Item Condition: used but in excellent condition Reason for selling: Not required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this unit as a stop gap but in the time it took to get here from Germany I had already bought something else. I've had it sitting in the shed since April 2017. Took it out the other day to make sure it actually works and it's all good. It has a built in phono stage for mm and mc. mm is 40db gain / 47 Kohm, mc is 60db gain / 100 Kohm. I bought it from Art of Sound in Germany. It would need a power cable as the one supplied is a European plug. All of the instructions are in German but other than that it works fine. I don't really know a lot about it and there isn't much on the net about them but it's cheap and would be great in a second system. I have had this running in my shed system for a couple of months and it sounds quite good. The build quality leaves a bit to be desired as far as the feel of the dials goes but functionally it is all good. Back story is I got it from Germany and it turned out to be faulty as the volume was extremely low. I sent it back, it came back and it works fine. It would be lucky to have done 20hrs. I have simplified my shed system as I was using this into a Sherwood AVR (also for sale) and just had too many components. If you have any queries I'll be happy to try and answer them. Thanks for looking. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Item: Sherwood AVR RD6513 Location: Mornington Peninsula Vic Price: $100 + postage Item Condition: Used but in excellent condition Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Had this unit in a holiday place and have sold that and then it lived in it's box for about 4 years and then got relegated to shed duties. Seemed a waste to use it there so bought a stereo amp to simplify the shed system. I would hazard a guess to say that this has done no more than 200 hrs total use. It has the remote, original box and manual. It does not have the optional bluetooth dongle or the set up mic. All works perfectly. Can ship at buyers cost but would prefer local cash pickup.

  3. I haven't got a lot of Japanese pressings but the ones I have are all excellent, so I guess that puts me in the love camp.😍
  4. Thanks for the advice. I swapped my turntable into the cd input and it was all good. Ran the cd from the turntable input and same drama. So it's definitely the cd player that's faulty. Any recommendations of someone in Melbourne (peferably South East) who is handy with cd players?
  5. Well its definitely not a failed tube. Tried four different ones that I know are good. Changed out IC's as well, no difference.
  6. I just put a new tube in it not long ago. Could be I guess. It's very strange as I am sitting here right now playing a disc on it and it's fine apart from a quick distortion at the very start. So it would seem that the laset may be ok as you would think it would work or it wouldn't. So may be a dodgy tube. I'll run this disc through and try another one. Process of elimination at this point. I've got other tubes there so that will be the next step. Thanks for the reply.
  7. Hi all, I have a Xindak Muse 2.0 which has a tube output stage. I have had it for a couple of years now and enjoy the sound and have done a little tube rolling with it. I don't play cd's often so it hasn't done a lot of work since I have owned it. The problem is that the other day I played a cd and it played fine right through and then put in another one and it played fine for a while and then the sound became distorted and was also louder in volume. It then played normal and same thing happened again. Then it basically became constant distortion. Thinking it may have been the cd I put in the one that I had previously played and the same thing happened thus eliminating a dodgy cd. I have since run a lens cleaning disc through it and tested. The cd played ok for about 4 tracks and then problem started again. Any ideas??? Could the lens be stuffed? If so is this something that can be replaced? TIA
  8. Great price for a fantastic phono stage. New owner will be well pleased with this, especially with the upgraded caps. Can't go wrong at this price, I love mine. GLWTS.
  9. Wow, this topic is still going. Just thought I'd interject and let everyone know I'm still running my 2m black and still love the sound. I have done a bit of tube rolling to fine tune the pre and power amps and really satisfied with the sound. I've done quite a few upgrades to the tt including a tonearm rewire which made a huge difference from the crap rega wiring. I have toyed with the idea of trying other carts but until the black is dead I'll stick with it cause it's so good. I also upgraded my speakers with some custom built adelaide speakers which are absolutely stunning. I firmly believe that synergy in the complete system makes all the difference and if you find that then kick back and enjoy the music.
  10. I had this same issue. I just tighten the bejesus out of the nuts and haven't had an issue since. And I mean tight so that there is a heap of pressure on the spacers. Good luck.
