  1. Item: Technics sl-1900 4x feet plus dust cover Price Range:? Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Does anyone have a knackered SL-1900 lying about they'd be willing to part out? It might be easier for me to buy a whole donor deck to repair mine but postage to WA may be a pain unless someone local. It's possible that other late 70s technics feet may also fit with modifications. Probably in for a long wait on epay for this one but doesn't hurt to ask I guess!
  2. Anyone know anything about this TT? It belongs to my neighbour. He's had it for 40 years and doesn't use it. It works but hums and he's wondering whether to fix it or pass on to someone who might use it. Seems like a well made TT. Is it worth anything? Cart is in good nick i think and looks like an Audio-Technica AT 91 @djb

  5. Item: Technics SL-1200 MK2 Location: Sydney 2065 Price: $600 Item Condition: Good condition, some minor scratches, works perfectly Reason for selling: Moving overseas Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am moving back to the United States and am selling all of my stereo equipment (see other ads).

Works perfectly and comes with a Technics headshell and an Ortofon Scratch cartridge as well as the Sure M44-7 that was included with the turntable when I bought it used a few years ago. RCA cables are original and also has the original ground wire. Cork platter mat included in sale.

  6. Item: Technics SL 120, Turntable Price Range: Depends on cosmetic/working condition Item Condition: Used Extra Info: - SME mount desired - Unserviced condition welcome
  7. Gday all, I just received a Technics epc 205c mkiii. This is a well regarded vintage cart that comes with integrated headshell. The headshell is azimuth and overhang adjustable. The overhang in the manual is recommended as being correct at 52mm on the integrated headshell gauge markings. However if I leave it as this the cartridge is a fair way off aligning on the Stevenson protractor (what I typically use on my Marantz s-arm). It is also off the recommended effective length crosshair that comes with my Marantz TT 6350. My question is, which one should I use? I’m used to being able to manipulate both the effective length and the cartridge angle in the headshell to suit Stevenson to good effect but am a little confused with the integrated hs setup of this line of Technics!?
  8. Item: Technics SL1200 MK11 Location: ACT Price: $1100 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Up for sale is my old faithful Technics SL1200 MK11 it's in perfect working order speed is correct all lights and switches work as they should cosmetically it has a few scuff marks on the paint they aren't bad but such is the nature of a painted surface, the lid has no cracks stays up and is in very nice condition in fact the whole turntable is in very good condition for it's age it sounds lovely full bodied and rich the upgrades below would be helping that. It was never used as a DJ table it's been a very reliable machine. Upgrades are a Rega RB300 Origin Live tonearm assembly and the wiring has been upgraded by the guru DUC with Cardas Clear the best stuff he offers unless he's introduced a new level he also rewired the RCA's and earth cable all are in excellent condition and to be honest I am a cable skeptic however this Cardas Clear really did change the sound on this Turntable for the better much better it was a surprise for me so take what you want from that but it's the truth and I'm still a cable skeptic (some cables). There is no cartridge included however I have a Denon DL-110 with about 30 hrs use it was on the TT and sounds lovely I thought to keep it as a spare but if someone wants it we can work out a deal I also have a Shure M97xE available. Postage not happy with that idea however I am doing a trip to Melbourne on Friday staying overnight if that was helpful to someone also doing a trip to Sydney in a few weeks. The music it produces is quite excellent took a really good Denon to just edge it out of my system. Edit: I've added some daylight photo's they are a bit clearer Offers will be considered. Pictures:

  10. Hi There, It's been a while since I've been on this forum, but was wondering what's a fair price to pay for a Technics RS1500 Reel to Reel (15ips) machine in perfect working order. Any assistance would be much appreciated
  11. Hey Guys I'm looking for some help finding someone to repair my Technics SP10 turntable. We seem to have limited options in Perth. I have tried a few people, i seem to either get - Yes thats an open cheque book please - Yes i can do it, then excuses, price hikes and no action, Or yes I can but i don't want to (my interpretation, no thats too hard for me but I don't want to say that). Either way I have had no luck. I would post over east if I thought I could get it repaired. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  12. Hey guys, i would like some advise on choosing between an marantz pm54 amp with a ST-64 tuner and a Technics Su-z65 and a st-z55 tuner. i have a friend who acquired both sets and wants to use one in a garage and i can have the other, he is not fussed. From what i can read the sets are very similar in specs with the marantz producing 10 more rms watts Im wanting to use this set to listen to radio and digital audio via a fiio x5 or computer and CD. I already have a marantz 2230b and a kenwood ka 5002 which i swap between using for vinyl. So i would be interested to know which one would be better suited for my purpose. they will be driving a set of 3 way kenwood floor speakers. I really don't have much experience with audio gear post 1980 so any help would be much appreciated

  14. Item: My SL 120 Mk1 DD Turntable is up for sale. This is the same as the SL1200 Mk1 but without the factory arm. Comes complete with mounting plate for REGA arms. Location: VIC 3931 (Mornington) Price: $470 Item Condition: This 1970s classic is virtually unmarked and in full working order.

  15. Item: Technics SL 120 Direct Drive Turntable with SME 3009 tone arm and AT15ss CartridgeLocation: Fitzroy, MelbournePrice: $800Item Condition: excellent - See description belowReason for selling: SurplusPayment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD OnlyPictures: See below Extra Info: PLEASE NOTE - I am selling this for a friend in Fitzroy, Melbourne. I have heard this deck - sounds wonderful. As per below, pick up only. Technics SL 120 Direct Drive Turntable with SME 3009 tone arm and AT15ss Cartridge in beautiful condition. - History The SL 120 was the turntable that came out the same time as the SL 1200. However the SL 120 was sold without a tone arm, allowing the home audiophile their choice of preferred tone arm. - Description Tone arm: SME 3009 Series II - classic english tonearm. Cartridge: Audio Technica AT15S Dual Magnet Phono Cartridge & Stylus - I believe this has the Shibata tip, but I cannot verify this. A bit more specs from our friends at Vinyl Engine: http://www.vinylengine.com/library/technics/sl-120.shtml - Condition Turntable is in amazingly pristine condition for its age. All original parts. During the time I've had the turntable it has not skipped a beat. Like all vintage audio equipment it may benefit from a service at some stage. These Technics TTs are built like tanks and would explain how later models managed to withstand such heavy DJ usage. RCA cables are original and look very weary, however they still run OK. You may wish to upgrade these cables. Whether they will have any impact on the sound is moot, however, if it makes you feel better then do it. Lid is in great condition without any cracks or any scratches. The Audio Technica Cartridge sounds good, but is older so the stylus will have some wear. Note the slightly skewed cantilever. Replacement stylii are available from Jico. - Provenance I am the second owner. The original owner kept the turntable in storage during the brief period in which CDs were in ascendancy and it seemed that vinyl was doomed. Later he sold it to me and I've been giving the turntable relatively light use over the past few years. Winner of this auction can also pick over some crates of vinyl I am also selling if that is of any interest. I will list these eventually but as anyone who has sold anything on eBay or elsewhere knows, photographing and listing items can be rather time consuming. - Pick up Pick up only on this. Located in Fitzroy. Sorry interstate buyers.
  16. Looking for a Technics SL120 direct drive turntable, working properly and in good cosmetic condition. I don't need a tone arm or armboard plates.
  17. I have an old 1978 Technics SU-7300. Was bought with a recent full service including all caps replaced, solder joints checked and full de-oxit treatment. Problem is it now crackles a bit (not violently or popping) in both channels and volume drops off once its warmed up. I'll usually get an hour or so before it happens and is somewhat intermittent - really frustrating! Ill take it back to the tech but wondered if anyone here had any easy fixes to try first?? Will be a while before i can get it to the tech hence why thought id ask the clever clogs here. Im convinced its not the speakers as its in both channels/speakers equally and cant hear or see any obvious issues with them (pushed woofers in carefully and gently listening for scratching noises). Any help much appreciated as im frustrated at being limited in my listening options right now!! Cheers Hifiscot
  18. Technics SL1200 mkii "If I have been able to see further, it was only because I stood on the shoulders of giants." from Newton. I am relatively new to audio stuff, and would like to gain some precious knowledge and experience from our kind audiophile gentlemen from SNL. Here are my questions about the turntable: 1. I have a Yamaha AS2000, and there is a build in phono mm/ms stage, would that be sufficient to drive this baby? 2. If Ans for Q1 is negative, what phono pre-amp would you recommend? Budget within $2k 3. What cartridge mm/mc would you recommend? Budget within $1k 4. I heard lot of people talking about this turntable, mainly DJs, how would this compare to modern turntable, etc, Rega RP6 and above or Pro-ject 6 and above? Mainly looking at possible upgrading down the track. Thanks in advance.
  19. Hi All, after missing out on a Snayo TP-825 for $50 on gumtree yesterday morning... I found the SL-1300 for $50 last night... so not willing to miss out on a possible gem, I picked it up late last night... So the total easter egg hunt resulted in a few Elvis LPs, a cheap Rega P1 with a newish Ortofon Red cart and the Technics SL-1300; much healthier than looking for Chocolate Eggs. I was told by the seller her late father bought the 1300 from Hong Kong a long time ago, and it has been in storage for a long time. Cosmetically, it look sort of ok'ish... with the dust cover dusty, but still in good condition... arm still looks good, platter is slightly tarnished, and the plinth looks mostly ok, excep for the corner where it looks like it has corroded (rusted, but white) Got home, hooked up... shock horror... turntable is not turning properly... lifted up the platter and found a mini brush stuck in there... flip the play function, auto start seems to work...push to end, auto stop and return seems to work. Could not get the speed to hold 33rpm... watched a few youtube videos, and realise there is another speed control adjustment under the platter. Turn it to mid point, and now the strobe is showing a constant 33rpm. noted stylus is broken, so replaced with an Ortofon OM5E i had laying around... Hooked it up, and immediately there was a loud buzz... held the earth connection to my AVR screw and the buzz disappeared. Great Surprisingly, I played Saturday Night Fever album, and staying alive was playing at the right beat (to my ears) and clear... Now, the questions: - What maintenance work should I do first? I see people use the electrical cleaner to clean the speed control nobs, the speed selector switch and the adjuster under the platter. Anything else? - I noted the stock head shell is pretty corroded too... Any suggestion to what head would be a good choice for it? Im planning to use my Ortofon Blue or the spare Red. - When I pulled the stock head shell out, I have also noted white particles due to the some corrosion... what should I use to clean it out? reinstalled after with new cart, and seems to work well, so I guess the corrosion did not affect the connection. - on the photo, you can see the tarnish bit on the bottom left corner. Is there a way of fixing this? or replace with a new cover? - Any upgrades should i be considering for this I know the arm is limited due to the auto feature. thanks for the help
  20. Hi all, Here is my Technics hi fi system on a home made flexy rank I built. 1. technics hi fi by rockypro1, on Flickr 2. Technics hi fi by rockypro1, on Flickr 3. TECHNICS MONSTER HI-FI by rockypro1, on Flickr
  21. I have a Technics EPA100 Tone arm - all good condition except the anti-skate needs a major fix. The adjustment knob is missing - so the mechanism is dissengaged - anyone suggest someone who could fix this? Probably need custom parts. Cheers
  22. Looking to buy a direct drive turntable in good condition and fully functional, it does not have to be a Technics SL1200 but I would like something decent that won't break the bank. I also would prefer to find someone locally rather than interstate but I'm happy to hear from anyone that thinks they might fit the bill. I'm also not interested in any of the Super oem DD Technics clones that are available. Please let me know what you've got and feel free to through any brand suggestions that might help. Cheers
  23. Hi All, I've just upgraded my turntable from an older Pioneer PL-12AC belt-drive turntable to a Technics SL-1200MK2 direct-drive turntable, and I thought a cartridge upgrade would also be in order (since I can put the old one on to the PL-12AC to keep using it out in the back room). I've currently got an Audio-Technica AT95E, which was attached to the PL-12AC. It sounds quite good on the SL-1200MK2, although since I've just spent a fair bit upgrading the turntable a cartridge upgrade is probably the next most logical choice. Has anyone got any cartridge suggestions for the SL-1200MK2? I've been looking at the bigger Audio-Technica models (120 and 440), as well as the Ortofon models (Red and Blue). Budget is around $150-$250 depending on how big the upgrade is I guess. Other suggestions are also welcome. Thanks!
  24. Petition launched to reintroduce Technics turntables Thousands demand the return of Panasonic’s legendary Technics SL-1200′s. A petition has been launched online to reintroduce the Technics SL-1200 turntable, which has been out of circulation since manufacturer Panasonic retired the iconic model in October 2010 after almost forty years as the world’s DJ turntable of choice. Launched in January of this year through online petition platform Change.org, the campaign has picked up pace after a slow start, gathering over 5,000 signatures in the last five days, and currently stands at close to 7,000 overall. Tabled by one Moni Daniel, the campaign states: For turntable-fanatics we’ve seen technology advance expeditiously and that’s not to say there are no benefits to the digitalisation of music… However we feel that there’s a place for vinyl and the traditional DJ’ing and turntablism is too – and this is where we feel the Technics SL 1200s are vital. More in hope perhaps than expectation, the petition will be presented to Panasonic Company and its parent company Matsushita Corporate, and simply demands the “re-introduction of legendary Technics Turntablesâ€. Of course, there’s also a Facebook group doing the rounds which has also drummed up over 6,000 likes. You can sign the petition here. That said, with 3.5 million thought to have been sold in the last 35 years, you might be better off nabbing yourself one on the frankly saturated second hand market. In related news, Pioneer recently unveiled a new turntable heavily influenced by the Technics model, which you can see here. You should also check our list of the 8 best budget turntables for home listening, for more alternatives. This is also not the first time disgruntled record collectors have mobilized via social media. Last month close to 30,000 people joined a group to save IKEA’s 12″-friendly storage shelf, the Expedit, which has now been pulled from circulation. Although the writing was already on the wall for Expedit, the outcry did draw an official response from IKEA. In October 2010, leading Japanese electronics company Panasonic announced that the legendary and symbolic Technics 1200 would no longer be sold. As one of the most iconic pieces of DJ equipment ever made the announcement to cease distribution was yet another blow for analogue enthusiasts the world over. For turntable-fanatics we’ve seen technology advance expeditiously and that’s not to say there are no benefits to the digitalisation of music – there are plenty, it’s of course great for music at large. However we feel that there’s a place for vinyl and the traditional DJ’ing and turntablism is too – and this is where we feel the Technics SL 1200s are vital. After all, vinyl sales have been rising year on year for some time now having a recent resurgence, so quality equipment should surely be available to play records with. Since originally launching in 1972, Panasonic have sold around 3.5 million of the Technics SL-1200 model turntables and with the demand for Vinyl steadily rising, I Want to launch a petition to see how many other music enthusiasts feel the same. If you’d like to support the movement, join the petition to bring the Technics SL 1200 back into production ! Petitioning Panasonic Company (Matsushita Corporate) This petition will be delivered to: Matsushita Corporate Panasonic Company (Matsushita Corporate)
  25. I'm looking for a good condition preloved Japanese made turntable, direct drive. Technics, Pioneer or Kenwood. Prefer a pick up in Perth WA but happy to pay postage for a good deck. I will look at any available offers and would prefer black in colour to match my other gear. Cheers
