  1. Item: Technics DD Turntable SL-1100 modified Location: Baulkham Hills 2153 Price: $895 Item Condition: good, see photos Reason for selling: I have three DD turntables Payment Method: Cash or Direct Deposit Extra Info: The SL-110/1100 were made by Technics back in the late 1970s and were bigger and heavier than the DJ standard SL-1200. More of a purist stereo turntable, particularly as they were often modified. The SL-110 came with a timber armboard but without an arm, while the SL-1100 had a metal armboard and a fairly unimpressive standard Technics arm. With Technics making a new generation of its extremely popular direct drive turntables – costing thousands of course – and reintroducing them to Australia, I can say that this has been a superb turntable for my music enjoyment. The heavy platter gives a stable speed, and I have not heard that rather obscure thing called “cogging” which might have been more noticeable in some of the lesser brands or more lightly built models on the market in the 1970s/1980s. There have been a number of superb direct drive turntables, many only sold in Japan or Europe. Apart from Technics there have been excellent models from Denon, Luxman, JVC, Goldmund, Dual and Nakamichi. This one, originally a SL-1100, has seen some changes in its lifetime. I’ve had it for about ten years, bought it incomplete, and have refurbished aspects of it over that time. It’s now fitted with an Acos-Lustre arm (nice) and a plywood arm board (basic but quite ok). You can get custom arm boards made by a chap in Germany for around $300 if you want to glitz it up – see this ebay ad: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Tone-Arm-Panel-for-Technics-SL-110-1100/332955230922?hash=item4d85ada2ca:g:9vUAAOSwXI1cFVFc I also had made the heavy duty lid which cost heaps! Included also are a dust bug, CEC-Micro (I think) cartridge, and 45rpm centre adaptor. Leads are Thorens (Swiss) which plug in to the arm's under-column with the normal 5-pin plug. UPDATE: I've added another arm board to this offer, heavily made, plywood, could suit for other arms, bonus! This is way beyond what $895 will buy you in new turntables, and could be further improved/upgraded with whatever arm, arm board and cartridge you’d like to use. Delivery: pickup preferred from Sydney or I can possibly meet in Goulburn/Canberra area. Freight: at buyers risk and expense - turntables are tricky to freight. Cost will depend on final packed weight and size. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Excellent value. I have a similar one as my #3 t/t, also in black which I think looks better than the silver.
  3. Nice job I say as one modest DIYer to another. It's of interest to note (for any hifi trivia nights) that the head of Focal was once a driver designer with Audax.
  4. Now there's a brand of t/t that's been around a long time. Used to be used by some German radiogram makers in changer form.
  5. Item: Technics SL-110/SL-1100 DD Turntable, modified Location: Baulkham Hills 2153 Price: $895 Item Condition: good, see photos Reason for selling: reducing from 3 to 2 turntables Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit Extra Info: The SL-110/1100 were made by Technics back in the late 1970s and were bigger and heavier than the DJ standard SL-1200.

  6. Slightly o/t but Audeze sounds to me like a brand of medication to cure audiophilia nervosa.
  7. This ad will stay up until Christmas if not sold before. However if not sold it will prove that high end is in a coma.
  8. Don't despair Batty. Making arm boards isn't that hard. In fact, (pay attention prospective buyers!) I have a very solid DIY arm board that suits a lovely old Technics SL110/SL1100 turntable that I can include in the sale for free.
  9. Item: Dynavector DV-501 High End Tonearm Location: Sydney - Hills District Price: $1175 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: downsizing analog section Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit Extra Info: The Dynavector DV-501 tonearm is one of the most famous and sought-after arms in the world. It gives any cartridge an advantage in separation & tracking stability, but will of course do its best work with high quality MC cartridges. It comes with one counterweight, which I've found suits the cartridges I've used in recent years: Supex SD-900 IV, various Audio Technica MC carts, the old Sumiko Blue Point, and assorted Dynavector MC models. Others can be sourced by the buyer. It also has the anti-skate counterweight, and arm lift mechanism. As far as I and many others are concerned the Dynavector arms are simply the best! I have used a 505 in the past and this very similar 501 more recently, and the performance is superb. The bi-radial design has the ideal mix of stability (left-to-right) from the massive main arm, plus the lightness of touch and sure-footed-ness of the sub-arm. The current model 507 looks fairly similar and costs about $8-9k. Secondhand examples of the 505 will usually cost approx. $2k. The 501 is intended for turntables for which the 505 is too heavy, with its large direct mount-to-surface foot - this one it has a lighter mounting system, a more conventional one! It just needs about a 30mm hole and sufficient depth in the plinth. I tend to think it's best used on a solid plinth rather than a floating sub-chassis type, but I'm told it was a variant used by some with Linn LP12. I have been downsizing my LP collection and can't justify continuing with the Number One setup that I've been using for about ten years. I have three turntables at present and will soldier on with something lesser but listenable. Delivery: ask me about this. It's a piece of fine engineering and I'm a bit nervous about sending it by post or courier, but we can come to some arrangement about that. (If you're in the Sydney area things might be a lot easier.) Also: I do travel down to Goulburn fairly often these days as well, and will have reason to visit Yass and Canberra some times.

  10. Item: Infinity RS4000 Speakers, black, 8" three way, with Emit K tweeter Location: Sydney - Hills District Price: $175 Item Condition: very good, see photos Reason for selling: too many speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Debit Extra Info: These are quite heavily built cabinets and host an 8” three-way design with EMIT K ribbon tweeters, hence the extended upper frequency range to bat levels, 45kHz. The sound is clear and spacious, the bass tight and down to 45Hz. Recommended power covers a wide range from 25-125 watts, and at 89dB efficiency you have a fair bit of leeway. I'd tend towards the upper third of that range. Nominal Impedance: 6 ohms Power Recommended: 25-125 watts RMS Sensitivity: 89dB @ 1 watt, 1 meter Crossover Frequencies: 800Hz and 3,500Hz Frequency Response: 45Hz-45kHz +/-3dB Dimensions: 57cm(H) x 31.75cm(W) x 26cm(D) There’s a tone adjustment on the back to fine tune for room acoustics. According to the included manual there’s a protection circuit for the tweeters. Probably get best sound when used with short stands (maybe 250-300mm) but they can be floor standing and still work well. Update: I have an old pair of metal stands about the right height that can be added for $25 the pair - no time to photo at the moment. Freight: ask me about this. No boxes at the moment.

  11. I had a pair of these from 1988 to 2002 and loved them. Rich sound, great for LP as not too prone to showing every bit of surface noise! Used to run them with Phase Linear Pre-power.
  12. Brilliant speaker, bargain. I used to sell these in my shop (quite a while ago!) and found them very well built and sonically tops.
