  1. I have looked at both of these and have a bit of a yearning for the DP-300F. I am currently resisting the temptation though as I am downsizing and culling. I will leave myself with a little Technics SLBD20 with an Audio Technica p-mount cartridge that has an elliptical stylus. I have a Terratec iVinyl sitting in a box unused that I might get around to trying out for digital transfers. Thing is, I am playing so little vinyl at the moment that I just cannot justify outlaying much money on vinyl playback. So my thinking is that if, in the future, after my next move, I find myself with the time, inclination, inspiration, and anticipation of playing more vinyl and doing digital transfers, I will seriously look at the DP-300F. Might sound a bit sacrilegious and I know I would be happy to see a Denon sitting in the system but I think it is down to a certain amount of FOMO and that just ain't going to cut it as a justification at the moment. Maybe after a few too many reds I will relent 😁🍷
  2. Greets and welcome. Classifieds and forums are excellent. Lots of people have a wealth of experience worth tapping into.
  3. Glad to offer useful advice. If you go for the new cartridge, make sure it is the AT VM95E which is the newer model to the AT95E (which is still a good cartridge and there may still be some stock of it around) as the VM series gives you the stylus upgrade options and seems to be getting good user reviews.
  4. I tend to agree with this but, if you prefer belt drive, the Audio Technica AT-LPW40WN offers belt drive with the same AT-VM95E cartridge fitted and can be had for a similar price ( no I don't have any affiliation with these guys) - https://www.selby.com.au/brands/audio-technica/audio-technica-at-lpw40wn-manual-belt-drive-turntable-walnut.html https://www.selby.com.au/brands/audio-technica/audio-technica-at-lp120xusb-direct-drive-turntable-configurable.html It is worth keeping an eye on JB HiFi for one of their promotions - 30% off - as they have both of these listed although the LP120 is in silver finish and Selby seem to have the black finish. They seem to run it a few times each year and there is a good chance one will come up soon, perhaps during October if they run their Rocktober promotion this year. As Old Man Rubber said, these are easy to sell f you decide to upgrade or if vinyl is not your thing, and even easier to come close to breaking even if you can get them during a promotion.
  5. Hi The green is an Audio Technica. Green usually meant an elliptical stylus - standard bonded .3x.7 or there abouts from memory so I think it is an AT11E. That would make it from around the early to mid 80s maybe. I know I was selling them in the early 80s at any rate. The red I am thinking looks Sansui-ish, maybe around the mid 70s to early 80s. If you notice, the cartridge body from the red stylus has a hole in it which the stylus covers when it is fitted. My memory says that there were versions of this which had a magnet in the hole and that these were then induced magnet versions and the stylus had a bit of metal fitted to it as part of this design. Are they any good? Well you probably can't get genuine part replacement stylii for them so you will have to be satisfied with a copy of dubious quality and performance. For the AT11e you could try this but for $60 and a copy with a conical diamond I probably wouldn't bother https://www.soundring.com.au/soundring-d603sr-round-stylus/ Nearest I can find for the red one is - https://www.soundring.com.au/soundring-d492sr-round-stylus/ Again $60 and a copy. This is the MM version. There are 2 IM (induced magnet) versions too. All used in quite a few brands and models of turntables. I can't guarantee 100% correct ID on this one either. I wouldn't bother with either because, for about $90 you can pick up a new Audio Technica AT VM95E which you can upgrade the stylus to nude elliptical, Shibata or Micro Linear or even go to a spherical if you needed to, all with the same cartridge body.
  6. I recently started using the AT-VM95E on a couple of turntables. I really quite like it for the $. With the ML stylus, which is retrofittable, I am sure it would get a lift in performance. There will undoubtedly be many suggestions as evidenced in an old thread from 10 years ago on a very similar subject -
  7. My favourite cd player. Mine won't be for sale. I also sold quite a few of these, the x77 and the x777. Quite a number of my customers back then bought them to use as a transport and I got good reports. I can also recommend the x55 as another good machine if it is in good working order. Not quite as bullet proof as the x7 series but not far off.
  8. Further information: A beautiful Sansui equaliser in black finish in stunning condition. It comes with original packaging, instruction manual (quite handy for this one to learn how to drive it) and rack mount handles. It is in near new condition and all functions work. The motorised sliders are smooth and all are OK. The factory presets work and the unit defaults to them after being powered down for the correct amount of time. It is a multi-voltage unit and is set internally to 240v. Unfortunately, I don't have the original set-up microphone. I do have a Denon DM-S205 set-up microphone I can include with it but I don't know if it is 100% compatible and I haven't tested it with the equaliser. Alternatively, I have read up about a Behringer ECM8000 mic that should be compatible and is available on eBay. The original mic was an omni-directional 600ohm but nothing particularly special as far as I can determine. I think the price is fair considering the offerings currently available as checked out using HiFi Shark. It has the original packaging and I will add extra outer layers to protect it further for shipping. Postage within Australia using parcel post will be about $80-$100 including insurance. If interested, give me your postcode and I will get a more accurate price. International shipping is available at extra cost. Ask me to get a quote if interested.

  9. Further information: This is considered a reference tuner and quite collectible. https://audio-database.com/SANSUI/tuner/tu-9900-e.html Originally a US delivery, this is a multi-voltage unit and is set to 240v (see pics). It has a minor blemish on the top right corner where the black paint/anodising has worn down due to rubbing in the packaging I suspect and a very slight shiny mark in the paintwork on the top cover. The box is showing its age but it has done a good job keeping the tuner safe and protected over the years. I have owned it for about 13 years but I have never made it part of a system and it has been packed up the whole time. I have tested it and it does work beautifully. All the lights work and all the switches operate and are smooth. It just oozes build quality. I think the price is fair considering the offerings currently available as checked out using HiFi Shark. It has the original packaging and I will add extra outer layers to protect it further for shipping. Postage within Australia using parcel post will be about $100 including insurance. International shipping is available at extra cost. Ask me to get a quote if interested.

  10. Further information: Does 1972 make it vintage in the hi-fi world? It must at least come close. 🙃 It is sounding great and looking fantastic for its age. I found it a little hard to come up with a fair price as it is not often listed and I would guess that there are not many around these days. However, I am prepared to entertain reasonable offers. Parcel Post with insurance to most of Australia will be around $50-$60 but I can confirm that before purchase with a destination postcode. This turntable is made in France. Some info suggests it was made by Era but other info suggests it was a Sonab or joint venture factory. It definitely looks Euro-styled which is part of its attraction. It is quite well engineered with a 3-point suspension and removable platter revealing a sub-platter which sits on a bearing assembly mounted on a floating sub-chassis. It has an unusual arm with a fairly unique design. The headshell slides out (a bit like an older Dual) allowing for reasonably straightforward cartridge replacement. The auto-stop function works perfectly, stopping the motor as the needle tracks into the end groove. There is no lift off or return on this model's auto function. I fitted an unused Audio Technica OEM cartridge from a Denon turntable which will be something like an AT3600/AT91 with a spherical stylus and a lift-up stylus guard. I also replaced the signal cables a while back with some Monitor PC Silver HiFlex cables with basic gold-plated rca plugs which I had at the time. The belt is good, all functions work, and the turntable is complete. I have polished the lid and it has come up quite well with the usual polishing swirls. Still a couple of deeper marks that will require more elbow grease than I possess. Here is a bit of technical info/specs - https://www.radiomuseum.org/r/sonab_55s_55s_01.html I will make some suitable packaging for shipping if pick-up isn't viable (I have packed and repacked a lot of turntables during my previous life in the hi-fi industry). I can organise safe shipping/delivery to the Canberra region and around the Bega Valley by negotiation. Total price including packing/shipping/delivery open to discussion.

  11. Further information: A classic vintage belt-drive turntable from Chuo Denki Corporation of Japan, home of CEC and CDC products. This is a fully automatic player with size and speed select as well as repeat function. The automatic play and stop works perfectly. It has the original headshell and is fitted with an Ortofon FF15XE MkII which is working fine and tracking OK but is on the older side of life so an upgrade to a new cartridge at some stage is worth considering. I have included a very nicely machined large hole 45rpm adapter. The belt has been recently replaced. I have polished the lid and it has come up quite well with the usual polishing swirls. Still a couple of deeper marks that will require more elbow grease than I possess. The brown walnut vinyl veneer has some imperfections/bubbling at the joins, perhaps from a little shrinkage and due to age. I will make some suitable packaging for shipping if pick-up isn't viable (I have packed and repacked a lot of turntables during my previous life in the hi-fi industry). I can organise safe shipping/delivery to the Canberra region and around the Bega Valley by negotiation. Total price including packing/shipping/delivery open to discussion.

  12. Further information: A classic older Technics belt drive turntable in overall excellent condition for its age. I have just fitted the Ortofon FF15XE MkII cartridge to a new Audio Technica headshell. The stylus appears to be in good condition and sounds fine. This turntable will readily accept an upgrade to a newer cartridge. The trim pots, speed controls, and on/off switch have all been contact cleaned and the trim pots have been reset. The auto-lift/return is working correctly and smoothly. The cueing device is smooth and properly damped. The belt has been recently replaced. I have polished the lid and it has come up quite well with the usual polishing swirls. Still a couple of deeper marks that will require more elbow grease than I possess. I will make some suitable packaging for shipping if pick-up isn't viable (I have packed and repacked a lot of turntables during my previous life in the hi-fi industry).

  13. Further information: A classic am/fm tuner from Hitachi and the early '80s. It has their highly regarded FCCS (Field Condition Computer Servo) tuning system which optimises the signal for the best performance. It reviewed very well in Grammophone magazine but I can't locate a copy of the review. As seen in the pics, it comes with original and complete packaging, instructions, and antennas, and I have included a basic rca lead with gold-plated plugs to get the new owner going. There are some marks/blemishes on the top cover unfortunately but they are not big dings and dents (see the pics). This one is silver finish. I have a bronze finish one as well which I am planning to list when I list the matching amplification in case anyone is looking for a matched set. Shipping with insurance is easily available with Australia Post at extra cost. I am open to discussing the total price including shipping.

  14. Further information: Price includes good protective packaging and standard Australia Post pack for shipping within Australia. Extra for express post, additional insurance and international shipping. I fitted this to my Luxman A522 with a Grace 707 tonearm a while back and never really liked the way it sounded in this combination right from the first groove although I have heard them sounding great in other setups. So I didn't use it for more than a few tracks and took it off and back into the packaging and into storage for another project. Well, another project has turned into downsizing my collection. I fitted a few of these to turntables for other people so I know it can sound good and it is popular. The box is a little scuffed and torn on one end from trying to get it open so I give the box 8/10 but overall I give 9.75/10 Here is a link to Shure Europe with their very good description and specs. https://www.shure.eu/products/dj-phono/m97xe Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved
  15. Further information: I have relisted this and dropped my original price. I am open to fair and reasonable offers. Low output MC cartridge with van den Hul type 2 stylus with less than 50 hours on the clock. It is quite respected and well reviewed. I probably didn't give it a chance to run in and warm up but I preferred my Garrott Bros modified Coral MC81 at the time. It is quite respected and well reviewed. As seen in the photos, it has all the accessories in the packaging. The mounting screws are there but have been used. The cardboard outer box is about 8/10 as it is a bit scuffed.
