  1. These decks don’t seem to come up for sale that often. They seem to be keepers and I can understand why. Engaging sound and totally radical design at a very affordable price.
  2. Item: Thorens TD160 turntable with SME 3009 Series II Improved arm Location: Brisbane Price: $1320 Item Condition: Mostly good Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+3.0%), COD Only Extra Info: For lovers of vintage turntables, a Thorens TD160 classic turntable. A piece of audio history…. I’ve used this 1970’s Thorens TD160 with a Ortofon 2M Black moving magnet cartridge with pleasing results. Below are the changes/improvements I've made to the turntable along the way - Installing an SME 3009 Series II Improved arm and arm board. Added dampening to the suspending chassis SME arm serviced with new rubber supports. Chassis springs and dampers removed and cleaned. Replaced underneath masonite plinth with thicker MDF. Also - Original SME arm also included with arm board. The original arm is still functional but the small anti-skating auto dial is broken. Anti-skating can still be manually adjusted. SME arm is far superior! All original internal turntable fittings with pictures included should you wish to convert to original setup. I have a complete set of pictures showing the original setup which is actually fairly simple. Happy to talk you through it. Please note there is damage to the rear corner of the Perspex cover. Unfortunate, but doesn’t affect sound. Should mention that the Thorens arm raiser post isn’t required as the SME arm has it own lift mechanism. Hence, I cover two small screw mount holes in the Thorens deck with a small level. As seen in the pics. There is still room for improving the turntable as I’ve never replaced the original cables or plugs and the rubber legs are still original. I don’t have the original box but could pack effectively if you wanted to arrange courier pickup and insurance. Insurance would be advisable.

  3. Item: Well Tempered Amadeus Turntable Location: Brisbane Price: $1650 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+3%) , COD Only Extra Info: The first thing you tend to notice when playing the Amadeus is the extremely quite background, tightness of the bass and its engaging sound quality. Its easy to dismiss the decks simplicity, however, the sound is extremely honest and worthy of a much more expensive rig. To borrow a phrase, “It does tend to get you closer to the music”. The no contact gold ball/silicon fluid pivot is unquestionably effective at isolating the arm from unwanted vibration and resonance. No bearing! Arm length is 10.5” ( 267mm). Includes a TeraDak, upgraded linear power source and digital stylus pressure gauge. Cartridge and phono cables not included.

  4. Item: Denon DL-103R Moving Coil Cartridge Location: Brisbane Price: $335 Item Condition: Near new Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This Denon cartridge was purchased new several years ago and has been my backup cartridge and has only 12-15hrs use. Solid performing cartridge for the price. My mobile phone doesn't take good macro shots, but I have endeavoured to include a shot of the stylus. The diamond is perfectly clean and as new.

Please note: Microscope not included in the sale price! Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
