  1. Item: E.A.T. Forte Turntable Location: Adelaide Hills Price: $7995 without arm $8995 with New Zealand made Design Build Listen - The Wand Plus 12" silver carbon fibre unipivot tonearm Contact us for a shipping quote (it ships in its original wooden crate) Item Condition: Excellent condition Reason for selling: No longer needed. Payment Method: PayPal, Credit Card, Cash, Bank Transfer Extra Info: A massive machine that gets the best out of your vinyl. Separate Sub Chassis and a mass loaded turntable gives us the best of both worlds. The design of the E.A.T. Forte turntable is based on a combination of two basic principles: Separate Sub Chassis and a mass loaded turntable This gives us the best of both worlds. The chassis of the table is very heavy and mass-loaded using metal-fi lled sand. The feet are magnetic and act as a sub chassis to support the table. Platter The platter consists of two parts. The first part uses a soft alloy, the second part, a harder one. This reduces energy flow. The first part also incorporates the neodymium magnets. The platter weighs more than 20 kg (44 lbs). The diameter of the platter is 400 mm (15.75 1/2) (not the usual 300 mm [11.8 1/2]). Kinetic energy stored in such big platter turning at 33 RPM is an incredible 2460 Joules! This means that with the same weight you gain more moving mass on the platter. The platter also incorporates sorbothane damping to make it resonance free. Vinyl matt The vinyl matt is made from recycled vinyl records crating a perfect interface for the record. A clamp holds the record on the vinyl matt. Bearing construction The bearing is not standard but inverted with an oversized polished shaft. A ceramic ball is used on the top because it is very hard and inert. This, in combination with a Teflon plate as a bearing mirror, is also a good damping device. Teflon's accurate satin surface produces perfectly smooth movement without any rumble. The platter has a magnetic suspension using neodymium magnets. By increasing the distance from the bearing to the cartridge, the small neodymium magnets eliminate magnetic infl uence on the cartridge. Due to the magnets we can still move a large mass allowing the bearing to see virtually no pressure. This avoids rumble. (A mass loaded platter usually causes high levels of rumble.) The pressure of the bearing is adjustable. There are existing different philosophies about bearing pressure. With the Forte turntable you can adjust it according your preferences and taste. Magnetic Feet The table has large magnetic feet with a bearing and stabilization system. It guaranties close to 100% isolation from the floor and from airborne resonances. The magnetic bearing system allows us to use the extra silent Tefl on-ceramic combination. Usually high pressure would cause the bearing to wear out over the time. This does not happen because of the very low pressure created by the use of the magnetic system. Motor The motor is a stand-alone, decoupled AC unit. It uses a sophisticated electronic circuit to create 100% clean AC. It is very heavy motor with lot of mass to reduce all the existing vibrations. Motor energy is absorbed by using a sandwich system of metal and MDF. We decided to use a "dual motor design" to eliminate noise in the motor. By using two relatively weak, but silent running motors, we achieve perfect torque. Belt Long belts usually have some amount of wobble. To avoid this we use a special silicon string. This movement is also absorbed by the bearing block and by the huge mass of the platter itself. E.A.T. the Energy The E.A.T. Forte turntable is all about eating energy. - Energy from the ground is decoupled by magnetic feet. - Energy from the air is decoupled from the heavy chassis that is made from MDF and fi lled metal sand. - Energy from tone arm and cartridge is absorbed by using a heavy metal tone arm base isolated by sorbothane. - Energy from the belt is captured by the mass of the platter and by the string itself. - Energy from the motor is captured by the dual-motor design, the decoupled motor unit and the mass-loaded motor chassis. - Energy of the bearing is catch by the ceramic ball, the Tefl on plate and the magnetic bearing construction.

  4. Item: Astell & Kern AK100 32 Gb portable system Location: Adelaide Price: $490 Item Condition: excellent Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The Astell&Kern AK100 is the ultimate portable high-fidelity audio system capable of studio Mastering Quality Sound (MQS) support and playback. MQS (24bit, 96kHz -192kHz) is considered as the digital music format with the most amount of information and commonly saved as a lossless 24bit WAV/FLAC format. The difference between MQS and MP3s/CDs (WAV) can be heard and felt because the sound is distortion free because no data loss occurs within the MQS (24bit) source. The Astell&Kern AK100 does not need external MQS encoding and results in a more refined and pure sound. Features: Bit-to-bit Mastering Quality Sound (MQS) playback World's first portable device equipped with the Wolfson WM8740 24bit/192kHz DAC Dual MicroSD card slots with 32GB of internal flash memory - 96GB of music storage space Use the Astell&Kern AK100 with or as an external optical DAC Refined design w/ integrated volume wheel & brushed aluminum body Intuitive user interface experience with touchscreen LCD & control buttons Technical Specs Dimensions: 2.32” x 3.11” x 0.55” (in) Weight: 4.3oz DAC: Wolfson WM8740 (24bit/192kHz) Display: 2.4" IPS Touch Screen (320 x 240) Memory: 32GB Internal / Dual Micro SD card slots (32 GB each) Audio Formats: WAV/FLAC/MP3/OGG/WMV/APE/AAC/AIFF/ALAC Bluetooth: 3.0/A2DP Output Level: 1.5 VRMS THD+N: < 0.0008%/1kHz ; < 0.001%/10Hz ~ 20kHz Signal to Noise: 110 dB Frequency Response: ± 0.14 dB/10Hz ~ 20kHz Jitter: 90 PS
