  1. Oh sorry I get you. I went with the 3A selectable output one. From memory the SL10 manual recommends a supply rated at over 800mA. I was lucky enough to get an early release version of what I believe is now badged As Kraftwerk II, I cant compare it to the earlier versions but it really does sound excellent.
  2. H Hi TS23 - yep I ordered one from Gieseler Audio, he is based in Australia and his website is https://www.gieseler.com.au
  3. Hi all, my beloved Accuphase E-204 just made a massive POP while I was playing a record, and then stopped producing sound, save for some intermittent crackling. Does anyone know where I might be able to find a trusted repairer in Sydney?
  4. Resurrecting this thread in case it is relevant to anyone. I just got around to purchasing a 12V power supply from Gieseler Audio for my SL-10 and I'm super happy with the results. Always hard to describe the before/after subjective listening experience but it seemed that imaging improved, with greater separation between instruments and more detail. Bass is slightly better defined? Feels as though transients are just that little bit sweeter and generally there's more space in the sound. All of which is very nice, but it also tidies up a minor issue I was having with this TT, which is that it got quite warm after being left on for a while. I've read that other people have had the same issue with this deck, I would guess this is due to components in the internal transformer drifting a little out of spec over the years. Anyway the new PSU rather handily solves this problem too. Hoping that this will contribute to the longevity of my prized SL-10. Next step - investigating a retip for the EPC-310MC!
  5. Just wanted to say how pleased I am with the 12v PSU that Clay supplied for my Technics SL-10 turntable. I'll try and describe the sonic benefits over in the (fairly niche-interest!) SL-10 thread but wanted to say here that the customer experience was really outstanding. Clay was extremely patient and helpful with my questions even before I'd placed an order, and went out of his way to make sure the unit and cabling was suitable for my setup. Terrific product and service!
  6. Item: around 50 LP outer sleeves Price Range: free Item Condition: Used Extra Info: pickup only from inner west Sydney Hi, if anyone is interested I have a bunch of LP outer sleeves - about 50, I would say at least 30 were purchased new from local record stores and used on my records before being upgraded to Blake sleeves, the others are from second-hand purchases. A few have price stickers on them for this reason. There are also a few lightly used inners in there, for records I have cleaned and then replaced the inner sleeve. Figure they might suit a dealer - or someone looking for a cheap (ie free) way to house some LPs.
  7. I have the (non-rackmount) Tuner and Amp in this series and they sound really good - they have a high niftiness quotient but they're also really solidly built. Really puts to shame the mini-systems of the 90s and 2000s. GLWTS.
  8. amazingly generous! I'd gladly go second in line
  9. Hi Colin - would greatly prefer pick up but will consider post if no local interest - thanks, Richard
  10. Further information: Bunch of classic rock (and adjacent) CDs. Condition is mixed, some are perfect, some look average but upon testing played fine. None are diabolical. Mark Knopfler and the two Beach Boys twofers are HDCD and in nice condition. Cases range from good to beaten up. These are mostly CDs I picked up second-hand myself so price reflects that. Selling as cheerful listening copies in the hope that you'll be pleasantly surprised. If there's a particular item you wanna know condition of lemme know and I can describe. Inspection before sale very welcome. Thanks for looking. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  12. Hi Cameron, nice to hear from another SL-10 user and fan - I also have one with the EPC310MC and agree it's a great cartridge - in fact alongside the linear power supply project, I am also thinking forward to a time when I might get the cart retipped. What you say about vocals is very true. In fact I was listening to a spoken word LP the other day and was blown away by the quality of speech reproduction, which I've always heard was one sign of a decent system. I have been exploring Technics linear trackers for a while now (with the SL-5 and SL-Q6) but the SL-10 represents a massive step up in quality - not sure how much of this is due to the cart and how much the TT build quality, I expect it is a combo of both. It really is a very satisfying combination of unique aesthetics, solid construction and pleasing sound quality. Will certainly keep you posted if I do have good results with a DC power supply!
  13. Is anyone else on here running one of these currently? I'm really enjoying the one I'm using at the moment. I'm interested in picking up a Linear DC power supply to see if that has an effect on the sound. Does anyone know if/where these can be sourced locally - and the kind of price I'd be looking at?
  14. On this topic, I have a couple of (cleaned and otherwise nice) records that have a series of grey specks that follow the groove for one track only - and when playing this section there is an (intermittent) nasty scrape sound that both impairs listening to the music, and doesn’t sound like something I want to expose my stylus to again. Any thoughts? Visually I would think groove damage from a mistracking stylus - but I would expect breaking-up/distortion from that kind of damage. I’m almost wondering if something nasty was pressed into the vinyl? Or maybe some other kind of hard-to-shift gunk. Hard to photograph but you can sort of see it in this pic:
