  1. Welcome to Stereonet! Lots of good advice, conversations and a great marketplace to buy and sell equipment. You can also get in touch with your local HiFi stores through here too :)
  2. Hi All, have had the Sunday + Monday off work and will now chime in with a few things I have added the the GoldNote PSU-10 to our website : https://www.douglashifi.com.au/products/gold-note-psu-10-optional-add-on-power-supply-for-gold-note-ph-10-phono-stage?variant=29728257704045 (we have loaned out the PSU-10 to all of our PH-10 owners and around 90% of them have bought it as they all felt that the the performance boost was well worth the money). All have reported a lowering of the noise floor (not that there was much to start with), increased dynamics and details and a larger soundstage. All of the people that purchased were running MC carts - the MM cart users all reported a difference - but all were saving up for an MC cart. We have kept an old ad from back in the day for Douglas HiFi (thought I'd share given the topic of conversation : I will PM you some info @Karl Rand Cheers, Simon Pressman www.douglashifi.com.au
  3. You should try the GoldNote PH10... *Sounds Great *All front panel adjustment * Multiple phono EQ curves *2 expansion ports for up grades (ie power supply, tube output etc) *2 independantly settable inputs ProJect DS2 also has front controls and represents good value.
  4. The GoldNote PH10 with optional PS10 is rated very highly by users and reviewers alike. Don't know how it would compare to the Sensor2 as I have not had them side by side.
  5. Hi.. So firstly.. the 2M Bronze and Black are the same cartridge body with different stylus assembly choices to alter the sound. The 2M Bronze is a lovely textured sound that is slightly warm and rich in tone and really suits someone looking for a lush midrange. The 2M Black (once setup precisely) adds deeper, tighter bass, more extended treble detail and bigger dynamics ... it is however also less forgiving of vinyl that is not in pristine condition and does play with slightly more surface noise i find.
  6. Hi Mark, Yes - I am glad you are enjoying your system 😀👍. In regards to your question that started the thread ‐ phono pre-> integrated amp is technically around line level (much like a cd player)... however, the signal from a phono pre will often have high frequency sound above 22khz which cd does not. So shielding will be a touch more important. Other than that - similar diffetences as any other line level RCA source component. Simon 👍
  7. I can organise freight to NSW... I Will check rates when back at work tomorrow but expect around $30.
  8. Knosti manual cleaner and Melody Mate cleaning fluid works great.
  9. The good old cable difference conundrum.... Best to borrow a couple of cables and try them at home in your own system and decide for yourself :). 9 out of 10 people that borrow cables from us hear improvements and go ahead and buy them. There are many brands and price points to try so best chatting to a HiFi store that will let you take a couple home to try. If you're in Perth feel free to PM me to discuss further and arrange an in home trial.
  10. Item: Pro-Ject Debut Carbon DC Blue Turntable w/Ortofon OM5e Location: Douglas HiFi - Perth Price: $450 Stereonet Special $599 rrp Item Condition: Ex-Static Display (Played 1 side of 1 record) Reason for selling: Discontinued Model/Colour Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Visa, Mastercard, Amex Shipping Available Australia wide Extra Info: The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon is an excellent starter turntable that helps reveal vinyl's inherent warmth and beauty over digital formats. The supplied Ortofon OM5e cartridge/Stylus combination can easily be upgraded later on with improved stylus options that increase performance up several notches further. The Blue colour is now discontinued - so here is a one off discount price for the limited Blue finish. The first Debut turntable, introduced in the late 1990s, was a revolution for the hi-fi industry. For the first time since the arrival of CDs and the assumed demise of vinyl records, an analogue product re-emerged in the “mass market” – something all music lovers could afford. The Pro-Ject Debut Carbon turntable has been designed to set new standards in the vinyl category at it's price point and improve upon the previous model. The most obvious improvement is the inclusion of a carbon tube for the tonearm - this increases the rigidity and decreases unwanted resonance leading to improved dynamics, detail and improved imaging. Together with other improvements, such as an increase in platter size and weight for a more even and smoother rotation, and a new design in motor suspension, the overall sound quality is greatly improved.

  11. Item: Pro-Ject 1xpression mkIII Carbon Classic Turntable w/Ortofon 2M Silver Cart Fitted Location: Douglas HiFi - Perth Price: $1099 Stereonet Special $1399 rrp w/2M Red Item Condition: Near Mint - Ex-Display - full warranty and all original packaging Reason for selling: Finished Model Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Direct Deposit, PayPal Extra Info: Pro-Ject have deservedly made quite a name for themselves in the world of good value, high performance turntables.... and here we have an end-of-line ex-display special on the 1xpression mkIII factory fitted with the Ortofon 2M SIlver MM Cartridge (special upgrade from the 2M Red). Following on from a prestigious series, the 1Xpression Carbon Classic is the 6th generation of the classic Pro-Ject 1, presented for the first time way back in 1991. The current version of our iconic turntable includes a totally new carbon tone-arm with spin-off EVO technology. The innovative new gimbal design features a resonance damping counterweight for the best performance with any cartridge. The belt drive uses a low noise, decoupled AC motor with a precision frequency DC-driven AC generator for exact speed stability. We used a complex main platter construction similar to our high-end Xtension models that just can't found elsewhere in this price range. Thermo plastic elastomers (TPE) are used in a sandwich construction with aluminium for optimised resonance behaviour. The platter bearing axle is made from low tolerance chrome plated stainless steel running on a Teflon bottom in a bronze bearing housing. The main plinth is made from low resonance MDF, which is decoupled from structure-born noise by special absorber feet using TPE technology. But enough about the sterling build quality. The sum of all these premium components is a sound quality that will make you forget everything else... And just listen.

  12. Hi there, Don't forget that you may need to budget for a phono stage as well if your pre-amp doesn't have one. A reasonable starter MM one will be $200-500 on top of the cost of a turntable. An effective wet manual record cleaning system is around $150 and some fresh inner sleeves (around $50 for 50 sleeves) to keep the snap crackle and pops away from your records. Have you allowed for these things in your budget?
  13. Hi Brian, indeed a lovely amp. I have changed specs to Instantaneous... as you are absolutely correct regarding current listed specifications However - those specs I had previously up were copy and pasted from the an earlier blurb from Luxman talking about power in BTL mode.... which they currently spec as: INSTANTANEOUS MAXIMUM OUTPUT (BTL 1680W into 2 ohms) -( This seems like an odd spec off a 550va Transformer I agree ) cheers, Simon Pressman
  14. Hi there, BTL mode specs this power as per Luxman website : http://www.luxman.com/product/detail.php?id=18#spec
