    Ralph Waters, Richter loudspeaker magician

    "… just found a pair of the Secret weapons for $50. they need some love to get them working but I can't wait to hear them properly." Envy! That's a rare and special model that was no longer in production by the time I became a Richter dealer in 1990. The combination of a well-tuned bass enclosure and the front/back dispersion design appeals to my taste exactly. I have a number of speakers which follow those principles, either bipolar, dipole or 360 degree - some of which I built with Ralph acting as my personal consultant.

    The Dragon Mk.1 (as I can recall from my days selling all the Richters in the 1990s) certainly had more bass than the Wizards, but not excessive. Ralph didn't make speakers with "too much bass", it was always well judged.
  3. Thanks for your interest, I'm off-grid until the morning.

    Vintage HiFi

    Would there be any interest in this item: Nordmende Super - record player and multi-band radio, all valve unit, stereo, and if so should I advertise it at what price? I have a number of vintage items and room is a problem. This unit might be the only one in Australia, but I know demand is limited.

    FS: YAMAHA RX -V1 FLAGSHIP 30 kgs Beast!!

    I also use one of these in stereo mode only, as my second-string, casual listening, living room receiver.
  11. Item: Denon HA-1000 MC Phono amplifier Location: Sydney Price: now $495 (noting that Audio Connection have one at $800) Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Surplus to requirements Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, DD Extra Info: A classic MC step-up device giving you two selectable settings of 24dB and 32dB gain. The power supply feeds the unit with DC current and can be located quite separately as it has plenty of lead attached. The MM setting is actually a straight pass-through with no gain, so this unit is intended for use with amplifiers that have an inbuilt phono stage. I've used it with my Audio Research SP14 pre-amp which has a valve phono stage. I've also done some semi-professional LP transfers using that combination and the client (i.e. the owner of the direct-to-disc record company!) has been well pleased with the results. I'm scaling back my LP gear and so this unit can go - but only in the event that it sells at asking price. Postage can be arranged - ask me about costs. Pictures:
  12. Item: Yamaha RX-596 and HK 3 Head Cassette Deck - need repairs Location: Sydney Price: $10 (donate it to Stereonet) Item Condition: See notes Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These might be useful to someone who can do repairs or who has a mate who can! The Yamaha Receiver lights up and tuning appears to work but audio is absent or distorted at best. Maybe the power amp section, can't say. There are some metal parts inside showing rust, so may have been near the coast at some stage of its life. The HK deck is a nice one, and was working before it went into storage a couple of years ago. The motor, heavy flywheel and idler wheel are all spinning, but the right hand capstan, the take-up or fast forward one, is jammed. I don't intend to get involved in packing or shipping these, so it's pickup from Baulkham Hills 2153, to the north of Parramatta. There might be a kind member who can do this for you if you're not in Sydney - see "pay it forward" section. (If nobody's interested I'm going to be booking a council pickup soon, so they'll end up out on the kerb along with a dead Sony MDS-JE510 which is not repairable) Pictures:

    FS: Classical LP Box Sets

    Good things, particularly the Tchaikovsky set with Markevitch. They are just about the perfect versions of those colourful symphonies.
