  1. I’m keen to get some views on what would be a worthwhile upgrade from an AT LP120 turntable with an upgraded Hyper Elliptical stylus. I’m keen on staying with MM cartridges and looking to spend up to $2k. Amp and speakers are high quality but I am unsure if the extra spend would make a demonstrable difference. Keen on some views and suggestions on TT’s that would be worth considering.

The base consists of a stainless steel pillar, the arm is made of carbon fibre and the bell is made of aluminium. This clever mix of materials guarantees resonance free behaviour resulting in seemingly gigantic sound spectra of vivid colours and rich detail. Effective weight reduction ensures that the friction in the single-point bearing approaches zero. The vertical and horizontal tracking angle are adjusted separately. The proven SIXSTREAM PLUS TONEARM CABLEused in the Unify provides an unbroken signal path. Any passionate audiophile cannot fail to be enchanted by the Unify.

  4. Item: The Clearaudio Concerto V2 24 carat mc wood cart Location:n Perth Price: $3200 posted Aus wide RRP $4495 Item Condition: Perfect Reason for selling: Sold turntable -20 hours max use. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Cartridge --The Clearaudio Concerto Clearaudio has significantly improved our fully symmetrical MC design, first patented in 1980. We redesigned the generator in a revolutionary way by positioning and doubling the magnets (to 8 pcs.) so the coils are operating in a much stronger magnetic field. Furthermore we have chosen the strongest magnetic material available: super neodymium. Through these achievements, the efficiency has been raised by 30%, which results in an output of up to 0.9 mV at 5cm/sec. All models now utilize the improved V2 generator. The new Micro-HD Diamond tip provides a hybrid parabolic geometry with a stylus radii of 0.008mm x 0.040mm. The total mass (0.00016g) is a fifth of the previous diamond stylus. Cartridge body resonances, while tracking in the groove, are minimized through the twelve finger design of the mounting plate, each finger with a different radius. This is the result of our constant research and development. The cartridge bodies of our 5 models: Goldfinger, Titanium, da Vinci, Stradivari and Concerto are made out of the following: gold, titanium, ceramic coated aluminum, Ebony and Satinee wood. The generator construction of the new V2 moving coil cartridge generation is absolutely symmetrical: mechanically, magnetically and electrically, our unique design. All Clearaudio moving coils use our proven 24 ct. pure gold coils. All the design aspects of Goldfinger, Titanium and Stradivari are found in the Concerto V2: the entry-level into our New-Generation-Super class of moving coil cartridges. Both the satiné wood from which the body is made and its resonance-optimised shape contribute towards the excellent performance of the Concerto V2, the baby of the Clearaudio flagship range Clearaudio Concerto V2 MC Cartridge With a dynamic range of up to 70 decibels and a total weight of only seven grams, the mc concerto v2 qualifies itself for the top league of moving coil cartridges. Within this satin wood body the technology is outstanding, housing 24-carat gold coils and a patented eight-magnet array unique to our V2 range. Further champion-level ingredients are the boron cantilever and Micro HD stylus. A recipe to win the trophy of sound championship. Total weight: approx. 7.0 gram Output voltage: 0.6 mv at 5 cm/s Material/color: satinè wood with metal platter STYLUS SHAPE Micro HD COMPLIANCE 15/15 μ/mN REC. TRACKING FORCE 2.8 g REC. LOAD RESISTANCE 300 Ohm OUTPUT VOLTAGE 0.6 mV at 5 cm/s CARTRIDGE IMPEDANCE 50 Ohm CARTRIDGE BODY Satinè wood with metal platter TOTAL WEIGHT Approx. 7.0 gram

  10. Items: Clearaudio Concept MM + Clearaudio Concept Clamp, Pro-Ject Carbon Fibre Record Cleaning Brush, and Onzow Zerodust Needle Cleaner. Location: Toowoomba, QLD Item condition: 9/10 only because it’s not new, it’s 9 months old and really in perfect condition. Price: $1,500 (includes Australia-wide shipping) Reason for selling: Decided to go digital only. Payment Methods: Paypal or cash if the item is picked up. Extra Info: Decided to try a turntable for the first time since growing up with one so I wanted to start with a product with great reviews, but after nine months, it’s just not for me. I mostly listen to classical music and opera so turning/changing the record every 22 minutes over a 2 or 3 hour performance quickly grew tiresome and I found myself going back to Tidal and Audirvana too much. I bought the turntable from Aussie Hi-Fi in Brisbane who set it up, and took delivery in August 2016. The Concept Clamp had to come from Germany at what turned out to be quite an expensive exercise, but it makes a noticeable difference to the sound quality. Happy to include the receipt, the turntable will be shipped in the original carton/shipping box. Feel free to message with any questions.
