  1. Item: Rega Planar3 TT from about mid to late 80's - with RB300 arm and smokey cover Location: Langwarrin Price: $350 - early offers considered for fast sale. Item Condition: Very Good. Cover has no major scuffs or marks - 8/10 Reason for selling: Just purchased a RP3 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Will post in Rega shipping box at purchaser's cost. It is heavy. Extra Info: This TT has had moderate+ use and always taken good care of. 240V asynchronous motor model with titanium counter weight. Has anti-skate.

  2. Item: Rega RP8 TT Location: Brisbane, QLD Price: $2500 Item Condition: Great used condition, Purchased May 2017 Reason for selling: Funding other Hi-Fi purchase Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+ 3%) Extra Info: In great used condition, as pictured. I've been using this with my Rega Elicit-R and a Nag MP-500 cart and it sounds ace! I've had this since new, Purchased only in May 2017. I upgraded to this deck from a Rega RP6 and I think it was a substantial upgrade. NO stylus/Cart included. Although it is now boxed up securely in the original box and packaging, I would prefer local buyer/pick-up. http://www.rega.co.uk/rp8.html A couple of minor things worth noting: 1. I think I mixed up the phono plug caps somewhere along the line when switching gear. So the screw-on connector caps (pictured below), I don't think they are the originals. They're gold and look flash, yet they don't screw-on snugly, yet truly causes no issues in regards to making a secure connection to your amp or phono stage 2. I noticed a couple of very minor 'blemishes' on the front edge of the lid when I was taking pictures. I've tried to capture them clearly in the attached pictures (for full disclosure). Hopefully like me, you will hardly notice them. 3. There is some darkening/discolouration of the top metal brace, as occurs with all RP8/RP10s PS: I'm also selling separately a Swagman SE (Special Edition) PSU that I was using with this deck (and also the RP6 before it). The Swagman replaces the 'wall-wart' power pack that is standard on the Rega TTs Pictures:

  13. Hi All, I thought I would post a story about my Rega TTPSU, the wall pack noise and the solution I am embarking on... So after a couple of weeks living with my RP6 at the start of the year, I noticed an audible 'buzz' coming from behind/within the side board I call a stereo cabinet. I did a big search on the web to see what could be causing my issue? The first item of help I located was a way to fix the buzz that a TTPSU causes through the speakers, due to no/poor earthing on the case thing.... Great, a little earthing cable test did reduce the noise floor through the speakers, but this fixed a problem I didnt know I had, and the other buzz continued. Boo! I did some further isolation testing etc.. and determined it is actually the wall wart or plug pack supplied with the TTPSU that was the culprit. Even when removed from the power conditioner and plugged directly into another power point, the buzz was there, it didn't even need to have a load to make it noisy. Oh well, looks like I needed a new wall pack from the local Rega supplier, $55 and a few days later problem solved.............. Nope! The Gotcha moment: plugged the new pack into the wall, had a listen, and boom (or more to the point, Buzzzzzzz) The noise was less, but still there, in a brand new Rega wall pack. It went back to Rega for a refund, and I continued to live with the buzzy cabinet (which of course the cabinet amplifies the buzz) A few months on and many nights researching the options, again and again.... I have determined there are very few replacement 24VAC plug packs available in the market, and none of them appear to be 'low noise' 'Audio friendly' options. Only a couple of places seem to make an audiophile power supply for the humble Rega TTPSU, so I had to work out which one would be the best value for money as I could only do this once. The options I found were all foreign production options, usually made to order and with no real way to test them or review their performance without pulling the purchase trigger. The most comfortable option I could find was a custom PSU from Graham Slee Products, though the price was outside of my resources at the time. Swagman Labs (eBay seller) produces an option, but then recommends the upgraded version for audiophiles, again the price was creeping up there and still no comfort as to the result...... what was the boy to do? the buzz it is loud enough to creep into the Sennheiser HD 650 listening sessions these days. Well the solution. Contact a local Audio Electronics specialist and get him to test the power supply and the TTPSU to see what could be done as a local manufacture, thats what! So I had a chat with William from The Factory Audio, here in Canberra, and after testing he has recommended an upgrade to the internals of the TTPSU and make some electrical modifications to allow a lower voltage, higher precision , lower noise plug pack to serve up the requisite AC to the turn table. He indicated the TTPSU had only just enough capacitance to do the job, it was taking about 32V from the plug pack and reducing it to closer to 20V for the turntable so was wasting heaps of life on heat etc.. So upgrading the TTPSU and using a better plug pack was a better option than producing a separate PSU with all the requisite conditioning and control, only to use the TTPSU to do the last little bit. The best part: The price was within my tolerance, and is produced by a Canberra local!............... So hopefully by the end of the week, I will be able to further report back as to the performance of the upgraded/adjusted TTPSU. I am hoping to be able to report back that the unicorns and fairies have now been released from the RP6 in equal measure and the air and space around instruments and singers is life changing............ but if not, that the Buzz has gone and I am listening to vinyl with reduced noise. Thanks for reading this long post, enjoy the rest of your night Dan

  15. Hi All, I'm looking for some advice on a Phono preamp, I dipped a toe in the water of vinyl several years ago and bought a Rega RP1 which has done well for itself plugged into the built-in phono stage of my PM8005 Amp. I am a stereo fence sitter with a foot in both digital and analogue but my record collection has ballooned to 50+ records and I find myself turning to vinyl more and more when I want to listen to a specific artist or full album. So time to take a plunge and upgrade. So far I have settled on a P3 (I seem to like the Rega over the more analytical options) and an Rega Exact to tone down the potential warmth of the P3/elys 2 standard option. Trouble is I am buying blind when it comes to Phono amps having no practical experience. What level of investment should I put into this to match the rest of the equipment without having a weak link or over investing. Any suggestions would be appreciated as Phono stages are surprisingly difficult to research compared to the the more exciting components of a stereo. Also, if I really need to check out anther TT happy to moved away from the current Rega plan Current Gear for analogue, AMP: Marantz PM8005 Speakers: Vienna Acoustic Bach HP Amp: Schiit Vahella 2 HP: HD650s Thanks TwoDaysLate (Mike)

Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, (Pick up only as there is no original packaging) Extra Info: Brought from Yeahpretrus last month.

Previous owner's description below : "This charmer came to me via the forums here last year. Has been powering some Linn Keilidhs in the study. It's now a headphone room, so no need for this. It's a lot of amp for the money, and sounds appropriately rich and powerful. Comes with an Eric McChanson step-down, as it's a 220V model." I've just installed four brand-new Mullard KT88 tubes, and had it biased.

  17. tem: Genuine Rega Tungsten Counterweight (120 Grams) Location: Sydney Price: $60 Item Condition: 9 Perfect working conditions. Reason for selling: Not use. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only The stock Rega stainless steel counterweight has a diameter of 40mm, weight 98g. The Heavy Tungsten Counterweight 33mm, weight 120g. If you use a cartridge which is heavier than the Rega's, when you try to balance the cartridge on a Rega P3-24/RB301 turntable/arm combination (or the other Rega TTs & arms) , you’ll soon find that the stock stainless steel tonearm counterweight must be pushed back all the way to the end of the tonearm. The heavy version of the Tungsten counterweights that Rega manufactures might just be what you need. The smaller profile is especially handy if you use an aftermarket spacer/arm height adjuster to adjust VTA (stock Rega tables/tonearms, of course, do not permit VTA adjustment and company founder Roy Gandy eschews the importance/significance of VTA adjustment entirely). Anything above a 2mm increase and you’re likely to find your dustcover sitting on the tonearm counterweight and, therefore, won’t close properly. If you happen to be one of those people who plays records with the dustcover closed, this will be an impossible situation. I never play records with the lid closed, but I live in a dusty old Victorian terrace, so I like to keep the dust cover closed when I am not using the tt. At any rate, the heavy Tungsten weight allows the counterweight to be much closer to the pivot point of the tonearm. Some audiophiles claim that results in appreciable sonic benefits including tighter, deeper bass and improved tracking. I won’t lie about that. After listening for a long period my ears can’t really detect that much of a difference, I can only detect slight improvement. It could be the limitations of my ears or even the RB301 tonearm itself. I’d caution that if you intend to pursue this upgrade specifically to achieve sound imporovement, you might find yourself disappointed. But if you’re doing it for more immediate, practical purposes such as those I’ve described above, the heavy Tungsten counterweight might be useful. If nothing else, it certainly looks cooler! There are certainly better products out there like the Mitchell TechnoWeight and the superb Groovetracer Counterweight. They are so much more expansive too.
  18. Hi all been inactive for a while now. But I'm considering upgrading from my old NAD C555 deck which is essentially a re badged rp2. I had a budget in mind of $1500 turntable and cartridge. I'm leaning towards a planar 3 with an exact 2 cartridge. I thought I would put it out here and take advantage of the wealth of experience and other opinions. Other considerations have been a Thorens table in the same price range. Also I'll state that I have a NAD PP2 pre amplifier. Any help/advice is greatly appreciated thanks.
  19. Item: Rega RP8 Turntable with Apheta Cartridge Location: Sydney, North Ryde Price: $2,000 Item Condition: Like New, nothing wrong with it all. Kept in smoke free home and played probably once a month since purchase less than 2 years ago. Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Comes with original box, dust cover, manuals, certificates, etc.. The images shown are just what im using at the moment, The shell, dustcover and everything are packed away. Pictures:
  20. Item: Michell Tecnoarm - based on the Rega RB250 Location: Brisbane Price: $695 Item Condition: Superb. Very little wear on the head shell from cartridge screws as shown in the photos. Reason for selling: Upgraded to Audio-Origami Uniarm Payment Method: Pickup in Brisbane is available and cash accepted on pick-up. Will ship express for $10. Paypal and bank transfer are accepted. Extra Info: I'm the original owner of this tonearm. It is the original Tecnoarm and has the single screw mounting system and VTA adjuster. Please note that if you are wanting to use it on a Rega turntable, the VTA adjustor will require the mounting hole to be enlarged. My images below on the red Rega plinth show the arm without the VTA adjustor. All the original packaging and instructions are included in the sale. Other things you may wish to know: - comes with two underslung counterweights for heavier and lighter cartridges - original black offsets included for Michell Gyrodeck - continuous silver Litz wiring from cartridge clips to RCAs - the difference the silver Litz wiring made was wonderful when I first heard it This is a well-known high quality tonearm and there's lots of reviews and other information available on the internet.

  21. Item: Rega Brio R Amplifier Location: Northcote - Melbourne - Vic Price: $500 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Sadly no longer seeing use, Have upgraded to and use a completely different system and need to downsize. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought brand new 5 years ago from the excellent Carlton Audio Visual. I ran this amplifier primarily with B&W 683 speakers and never had to abuse or push the amplifier to get to loud and uncomfortable volumes. Also recently tried this with some Cerwin Vega D7's and could still rattle windows with lovely crystal clear clarity to boot. Does come with original remote but no longer have manuals or original box that came with purchase. There are some small and light scratches on both the case and glossy front of amplifier but these are not noticeable unless face right up to amplfier and can be easily buffed out. An overview of the specs inside The award-winning Rega Brio-R amplifier certainly betrays it's compact size with a large performance of exceptional music reproduction for it's price category. It certainly belies it's power output of 50 watts per channel into 8 ohms or 73 watts per channel into 4 ohms, with an ability to more than competently drive most speakers. Due to it's substantial toroidal transformer, generous power supply components, a rugged output stage the Rega Brio-R justifies it's multi award-winning status. It also has an excellent phono stage with the use of film capacitors at all critical positions within the phono amplifier. It comes housed in a custom cast aluminium half width case. Excellent review here http://www.tonepublications.com/spotlight/rega-brio-r-worlds-first-review/ Feel free to PM with any questions! happy to audition for locals and am not interested in shipping the unit.

  22. Item: Rega R Stack - Brio R, Apollo R, DAC R (black) Location: Forestville NSW Price: $1,500 (excl postage) Item Condition: used Reason for selling: No longer required - planned renovations with one less music room Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have bought these components separately to build what is a great small room and modest stereo system. Some were bought new, others from SNA members. It is a reluctant/nostalgic sale. Planned renovations means I'm dropping a music room I've got original boxes for all 3 components, and willing to post. At this stage, I'm not willing to "split the family" but if I do I'll relist with FS individually. Note that the HiFi Racks furniture is not included in the sale price. At this stage I'm planning to keep the rack, but as this is "EOI" and you are willing to pick up the assembled rack, then make me an offer I've also got lots of short length interconnects - digital and analogue. Buyer can discuss if they want any. Essentially I had digital from CD to DAC, and (clearly) analogue RCA to amp. The CD and DAC use the same DAC chip (Wolfson WM8742) , but the DAC-R uses a pair of them. Add a streamer or endpoint and you are set (I've used SB Touch, Sonore microRendu, Auralic Aries mini at various times).

  23. Item: Rega RP6 turntable Location: Canberra ACT Price: $1450 Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: Not enough use Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD, EFT Extra Info: This Rega has the upgraded Groovetracer reference sub platter, along with Ortofon 2m Blue cart with low hours. To my ears its an amazing sounding combo, but unfortunately I just find that when I get a chance to sit down and listen, Im listening to my digital library and not vinyl. The TT has the great RB303 tone arm and external TT-PSU with speed control. I love the look of this thing sitting up on my draws, but not enough to warrant keeping it without use. The TT is in absolutely flawless condition and is always kept with the dust cover on. I have the original box so shipping is not an issue at buyers expense/risk. I know I am going to miss this thing but something has to give as I want to spend more $$ on my digital front end. Pictures:
  24. Item: NAD 556 (Rega RP1) turntable upgraded Performance pack (cartridge,mat & white belt) Location: Melbourne Price: $385 with Rega Bias 2 and beginners pack (cleaner, brush, stylus brush) Item Condition: Almost new Reason for selling: Some really lovely Stereonet gentlemen sold me a fantastic Rega amplifier....and now I feel I'm not doing it justice by running the base model Rega through it so bought a Planar 3 - however it shows just how good the RP1 is!!!!! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Had it 6 weeks, excellent and confirmed exactly what I wanted it to, yes, I am a vinyl guy (well, I am a bi-source guy who likes both vinyl and digital). The second cartridge was very illuminating - I now understand why people spend big dollars on these things! Very impressed with the performance though, the albums have great punch vs. my stream (an Audiolab M-Dac) and has convinced me that vinyl has a place in my system! Has been upgraded with the Rega performance pack - wool mat, Bias 2 cartridge and the famous Rega white belt - pack is $200 Has original box etc Feel free to come and try before you buy Thank you Review: https://www.whathifi.com/nad/c-556/review#juctPjFFoGRvQrXT.99yyy It appears that it comes with a Rega Carbon cartridge (although it's unmarked) https://www.aussiehifi.com.au/rega-carbon-mm-phono-cartridge and Cart option 2: Rega Bias 2 (10 hours usage): https://www.aussiehifi.com.au/rega-bias-2-mm-phono-cartridge Pictures: * does not include Rega platform nor Radiohead - however both are highly recommended
  25. Item: REGA. RP9 turntable external full sized power supply and superb 30 hours use ortofon jubilee cartridge. Books cables etc. Location: Perth Price: 4950 Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Upgrading 2 decks to one. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal plus costs freight as buyers cost. Extra Info: As new very very low hour use turntable cart and power supply , no visible scratches on deck ,very mild scuffs on rack mounted power supply but I think will dust off. Superb deck quite possibly the easiest high quality reference turntable on the market - turn it on and go - no set up no suspension issues - just sublime sound and value for money. The arm itself costs more than the entire rp6 deck and arm and the platter is made from space shuttle ceramics. online reviews everywhere but bit more detail. Product Overview:from vision living website but loads of others The P9 is, in our opinion, the ultimate performance turntable available to the music-loving public. We designed the P9 with no financial restrictions whatsoever. The ceramic platter alone costs more to produce than our P5 turntable! With the right cartridge, you will be astonished at just how much information this turntable retrieves from your vinyl LP collection. The plinth is a complex CNC machined skeletal structure encased in highly ridged phenolic resin laminates. The equivalent to the carbon fibre 'monocoque' chassis of the formula one car - an ultra lightweight, ultra rigid foundation for this high performance turntable. The plinth of the new P9 uses a brand new material to hi-fi for the inner skeletal structure. It is an ultra lightweight fibre composite. This results in the plinth being even lighter than the previous Planar 9 and improves the performance. The main bearing assembly is engineered to extremely tight tolerances. This results in virtually friction free rumble-less performance which, if lubricated correctly, will last your lifetime! The platter is quite simply the most exotic material we have used to date in our turntable designs. It is made from pure ceramic; a material that you would otherwise find on missile nose cones or maybe insulation tiles found on Nasa's space shuttle. The reason for using such an exotic and difficult to produce material? It is the hardest material known to man apart from diamond! The P9 carries a decorative surround of exotic solid woods, which you can cleverly interchange if you so wish to give a different appearance. New technologies in CNC woodworking machinery have allowed Rega to produce its first technologically complex surround. The new P9 surround is considerably more attractive than its predecessor and externally much larger although through clever machining the new surround is lower in mass than the old which gives a performance improvement. The external power supply unit is a quart crystal locked system. To ensure accurate speed stability of the platter motor, two quartz crystal control reference oscillators have been utilised. This system produces a high frequency (3 MHz for 33 and 4 MHz for 45) signal, which is then divided down to feed generously rated, high current power fet amps. The output from these is very pure.
