  1. A great turntable and a great tonearm! Anyone looking for a top turntable/tonearm combination at an entry level price should look at this.
  2. There is an SDS on ebay, they don't come up very often. The price is a bit less then I have seen them advertised for before. Here's the link: https://www.ebay.com.au/sch/i.html?_nkw=vpi+turntable&_sop=12 The armboard would have to be extended at the rear to accomodate a 12" arm, I think it could be done though. I fitted a 9" VPI memorial arm to mine, a 10" arm would fit equally well. Here is a photo of mine with the 9" arm and the armboard that I had made. The armboard is held by cap bolts from underneath.
  3. I had a new acrylic armboard made up for my TNT-2 and it looks like it came out of the factory. It can be drilled for whatever tonearm you like. I made one up out of craftwood first and trial fitted it since the original dimensions would have been imperial and I calculated it with metric measurements. If it is the same as mine, which the photo suggests, yours will be Width 100mm x Length 278mm x Thickness 14mm, is this correct? I was told that trying to polish black acrylic would end in tears, it seems that perhaps others have had a different pos
  4. I have the JC5 power amp and have to agree, it is stunning! Great detail retrieval and finesse which is in complete contrast to the enormous about of power on tap. It is very musical too! I imagine this would be a great combination with the JC2 pre amp, I am using the Modwright PS and LS 36.5 with mine and couldn't be happier. Anyone looking for this sort of setup really should audition, you won't be disappointed! GLWTS
  5. Item: Dynavector XX2 MKII Price Range: $1100 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I am looking for a Dynavector XX2 MKII moving coil cartridge either new, near new or used. If used then price should reflect same.
  6. I had one of these years ago, owned from new. Considered the best cassette player available in its day, and my experience with it was that it really was that good! GLWS
  7. Further information: This is a great little desk top amp/dac. I purchased this secondhand a couple of years ago with the intention of trying out headphone hifi. I didn't ever get around to it and only used it recently to check that it was working before listing. It only took five minutes to setup, there was a suitable driver on the Audinst website, so very easy to use. The unit operates from the provided USB lead. A separate power supply can be used if needed (not supplied). Instructions are readily available online Due to current Covid restrictio
  8. I have a Walker CJ55 turntable that I have owned from new, it is fitted with an Alphason tonearm. It is a very good table with some interesting technology for the time. Notably the platter material and the unusual wooden inner frame that it is suspended on. The motor is Swiss made from my recollection, it does not produce a lot of torque, so the platter will need a hand to start spinning. I have purchased belts for mine without a problem, but I see you have been able to locate one. Prior to the Walker I owned a Thorens TD160 MkII, the Walker in my opinion, and that of
  9. It looks like 24VAC 85mA is the specification. The AC adaptor that I have for it is 24VAC 350mA Note that it is 24 volt AC not DC. Thanks, Keith

  11. Further information: I have for sale yet another phono amp. This is a quality, English made, Rega Fono Mini A2D. It is a MM phono amp, is well made, very compact and comes complete with power supply and USB cable. As a bonus it will convert your vinyl to digital files, although I have never used that feature. Here is a link for extra information: https://www.whathifi.com/au/rega/fono-mini-a2d/review Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads fo
  12. Thank you, I think so too! Having the flexibility to use MM or MC without the expense of another box is helpful.
  13. Further information: This is a nice, solid American made phono amp which can be used with MM/MC cartridges. Here are some details from the net: High performance low noise outboard mm/mc phono section. Rogue Audio preamplifiers are hand made in the USA. They feature exceptional quality in design, sound and finish. The Rogue Audio Stealth phono preamps hold musical truth high with speed and accuracy. Through the use of very high quality parts and skilled design, deep, tight bass and crisp, clear highs are uncovered from the depths of the Lp grooves as never befo
