  1. Further information: If you’re viewing this post you’re most likely aware of the magic of this amp. The Halcro Logic MC20 represents near-perfection for audiophiles whom demand the absolute best. The incredible 400wpc has been hailed a distortion-free masterpiece. Suitable for driving all but the hungriest monolithic speakers, the MC20 features stellar treble clarity, completely effortless bass delivery and a totally neutral and uncoloured mid range section allowing the freedom and pleasure of playing any genre of music. (I’ve played everything from my favourite Benny Green/Russell

  3. Further information: For your consideration is my Musical Fidelity M3CD player - these CD separates from Musical Fidelity in the past decade have become known as the most capable, value for money and robust units on the market. The M3CD is of this same idea - completely devoted to amazing red book playback, amazing high end frequency reproduction, incredibly strong and convincing bass as well as a mid section that is instantly distinctive and as detailed as you need. The performance of the M3CD is a dark horse, with sound quality equal to that of players twice it’s price. The secre
  4. These Audiolabs are EXCELLENT performers. I had both an 8000A and a Tag McLaren 60irv (pretty much the same amp). Gosh now these are musical! For anyone wanting a super capable integrated that punches substantially higher than its weight - this is the amp. Best of luck with the sale!
  5. I agree - I think a really nice cartridge would do wonders. Along with a nice mat - those two elements I must admit had the biggest bearing in my experience for transforming any turntable.
  6. I think if they’ve improved the electrical design of the new Technics it could possibly be an improvement. I noticed they always had a terrible noise floor. Though as they’re going for something like nearly $3k, you’ll be able to get far easier sonic improvement with an Avid or Rega for your money - both manufactures are also hailed as mechanical engineering geniuses.
  7. Hey there, John - I’ve been in precisely the same position as you around 10 years ago when I was 20. I’d always been exposed to the Technics 1200s through friends, acquaintances, etc. It seemed everyone had one around me. I thought they were very much the turntable to have. So on I went and sprung for one. Yes, the engineering is truly impeccable - robust, rugged and finely designed. Amazing direct drive performance eliminated any doubt whatsoever for need to nail correct speed. A very confident unit to enjoy using. Though where it counted I found the 1200s to be far from an audiophile qualit
  8. Thanks for all the amazing enthusiasm for the Halcro, everyone!! I must admit I've had some tyre kickers message me the past couple of days claiming they've heard mixed reviews or that it's worth no more than $1,200... Obviously not from the the huge feedback here!
  9. Audio Analogue brilliance! The lucky buyer will have one amazing amp to enjoy!
  10. I do have the limited edition 2003 pressing which is quite rare - would this interest you by chance? It's actually a very solid and high quality pressing from what I've found

  12. Hey there Absynthetic - in terms of the required amp functions, were you after a straightforward integrated or were you intending on more of a receiver to keep everything connected for 5.1? Thinking about great bass for an integrated, Musical Fidelity comes to mind for great performance in the lower frequency range (in my experience). Ultimately having as much headroom as applicable is my suggestion - this depends on how sensitive/efficient your speakers are. I also have much experience with using the SL1200s in both DJ and audiophile applications. The 1200 in stock form te
  13. Hey there John - I can attest that having a separate phono stage will almost always serve better for sound quality than what will be within even a pretty high end receiver. Those that are in receivers I've found to be really inarticulate, dark and boomy. The fact that they'll be in a receiver quite often is a result of a given manufacturer cramming more in for feature set as opposed to out-and-out sound quality. Much is the same case as an in-built phono section in an integrated, unless talking about very high end integrated amps such as an Accuphase or say McIntosh.
  14. Further information: ** PRICE REDUCED AGAIN!! ** What more can possibly be said for these truly excellent floorstanders? Apart from the impeccable sound and build quality making Fabers the envy of countless other makers? The Concerto Grand Piano model represented Faber’s effort for “reasonably priced” floorstanders - what they achieved instantly was a model on par with their premier speakers. The sound is breathtaking - perfect for listeners that want as much detail revealed as possible in their music. Amazing high end, amazing low end handling and awesome mids. Conditi
  15. Hi Brad - I can definitely recommend Garry Cawsey in Edward St, Brunswick. He’s an incredible audio designer and engineer as well as repairer. Just about one of the nicest guys around and is a real joy to chat with
