  2. Item: AUDIO NOTE-KONDO io cartridge Location: Inner Melbourne Price: $3600 (price drop) Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: An early example of Audio Note-Kondo io mc phono cartridge. I purchased this from Japan and had the cartridge checked and retipped by ANA Mighty sound in France. Retipped with Van del haul stylus. Damper have been checked and suspension rebuilt. So this is literally a New cartridge. Played for about 10 hours for testing since rebuilt. They are quite rare and hardly come up for sale. The cost of the rebuilt alone is in excess of $2000. I have quite a few cartridges so just have to let go some to better home. Known as one of the best low output mc cartridge designed by Kondo san. Output 0.1 mv with 1 ohm impedance so will work with a minimum of x30 step up ratio and high gain phono stage. ANA mighty sound is highly reputable cartridge repairer and builder in France. Their Sculpture A3 cartridges were used by Thomas Schick, Frank Schroeder in Sibatone (western electric), Vitus and Thrax demo rooms among others in the recent 2019 Munich high end show. Additional info for those interested: http://anamightysound.com/ https://www.tonepublications.com/analogaholic/ana-mighty-sound/ François from Ana mighty have repaired and rebuilt Koetsu and SPU for me previously. They are always careful to ensure the original sound signature of the cartridge design are retained, especially for the classics like koetsu and AN/Kondo.

  3. Item: Rega Ania MC cartridge Location: Point Cook VIC Price: $650 Item Condition: Near New Reason for selling: Trying something else. Moving to Ortofon MC. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: purchase in Feb this year. I would estimate that I've played about 100ish records since I've purchased so most likely around 80 hours give or take. Mostly played new records only. This is my first cart into MC and found it a huge jump from MM. It was used on my Rega P7 turntable with the RB700 tonearm which sounded very detailed. The cart is pristine and barely broken in. Anyone thinking of making the jump to MC, this is where to start. Comes with the original packaging and can provide a copy of the receipt for warranty piece of mind. Cart has been place back in its original packaging. Can be sent at buyers expense.
  4. Item: Dynavector MC Karat 17D MKII 17D2MKll Karat Diamond is the first cartridge built using 'dispersion' theory. Its Micro-Ridge stylus and very short (1.7mm) solid diamond cantilever give a huge reduction in 'frequency dispersion', unmatched dynamics and a high frequency extension all the way up to 100kHz. The latest patented magnet circuit design increases the output to 0.26mV with crystal clear mid-range and treble even during the largest symphonic crescendos. ynavector Karat is notable for its gemstone cantilever. This 1.7mm long and 0.25 mm in diameter solid diamond cantilever has its 0.06 square mm stylus mounting hole precision cut by a laser beam machining precess.The Micro Ridge of 0.06 square mm nude diamond stylus is carefully mounted in the cantilever. The armature of 0.9mm square and 0.4mm thick is much smaller than normal, upon which are wounded 70 turns per channel of 11 micron fine wire. Due to the short rigid construction of the cantilever the 17D2MKll showed a flat frequency response up to 50KHz. The New 17D2MKII now features Dynavector's unique magnetic flux damping and softened magnetism (patent) along with powerful Neodymium magnet that combine to eliminate any hardness or irritating edginess that commonly occurs in many moving coil cartridges. This has also enabled to increase the output of 0.26mV. ype Low output moving coil cartridge with flux damper and softened magnetism Output Voltage 0.26mV (at 1KHz, 5cm/sec.) Channel Separation 25 dB (at 1KHz) Channel balance 1.0 dB (at 1KHz) Frequency response 20 - 20,000Hz (± 1dB), 20 - 100,000Hz Compliance 15 mm/N Tracking force 1.8 - 2.2 g Impedance 32 ohms Recommended load impedance > 100 ohms Cantilever 1.7mm length, 0.25dia solid diamond Stylus tip Micro-Ridge Weight 5.3 g Location: Bunbury South West WA Price: $600 (firm) Item Condition: Very Good plus Reason for selling: Surplus to needs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, On-line transfer Extra Info: Sorry about pic quality but stylus is good.

  7. Hi All, Just having a look at the Krispy Audio site and saw a higher level Hana Cartridge, $1795, available 27 November 18. Some info below for those who have not read about it yet. Available in high and low output versions, this new M Deluxe model delivers advanced materials and higher specifications. M Series Nude Microline stylus – Higher Specification Part Befitting its name, the M Series uses a Nude Microline stylus, mimicking the cutting stylus and fitting more precisely into the vinyl groove. This enhances tracking to capture the most delicate musical details with better frequency reproduction, stereo imaging, and resolution. High Purity copper wire – Higher Specification Part Very high-purity copper wire is used for winding the M Series moving coils, offering greater clarity of sound for both low output ML and high output MH models. The ML features a new low impedance generator for optimised performance with a broader range of phono preamps Delrin© cartridge body – Advanced Materials The M Series cartridge body is injection molded from Delrin©, a high tech polymer with improved mechanical characteristics for better resonance damping, to reveal more low level information and enhance dynamic range. Cryogenic Processing - Unique Technical Treatment Cryogenic processing is Cold Annealing at near absolute zero temperature that restructures metals at the molecular level. Especially important in the Alnico based magnetic electro-motive circuit (cartridge signal generator). The M Series parts treated include the front yoke as well as center and rear components. The result is a more precise and controlled magnetic flux field for greater linearity and musical sound quality. Threaded fittings and Brass Cap - Superior Mechanical Interface Built into the M Series Delrin© cartridge body are metal threaded fittings for headshell mounting hardware, offering easier attachment and a superior mechanical interface for better bass and dynamics. The Delrin© cartridge body also features an integral machined brass cap providing constrained mode layer damping and its heavier 9.5 gram weight provides expanded compatibility with a wider range of tonearms and turntables.

  11. Item: Van den Hul MC-1 Special MC cartridge Location: Melbourne Price: AUD 900 (RRP is AUD 1899) NOW: AUD 825 Item Condition: near mint Reason for selling: no longer required Payment Method: Cash, Paypal (+ 4%), COD Extra Info: This cartridge came as a part of a package deal I got when I bought my Brinkmann turntable in May 2014. The seller of the Brinkmann is an authorised Van den Hul dealer (Audio Fidelity in Melbourne). My turntable is equipped with a Jelco SA-750E tonearm. I don't think the Van den Hul cartridge shows its best performance on such a heavy tonearm. Van den Hul recommends this cart for tonearms with an effective mass between 8-14g (see all technical details in a picture below). The effective mass of my tonearm is about 19-20g. For this reason, I only kept this cartridge as a backup after I played exactly 125 records (250 sides) with this cartridge. This is an exact number because I use a manual counter for all my cartridges to record the number of listening hours. I replaced the cartridge with a Benz Micro Glider SL, which I replaced today with an Ikeda 9TS. The Benz Micro cart will now function as a backup and the Van den Hul MC-1 Special is no longer required. The current RRP of this cartridge is AUD 1899. As you can see from the pictures, the cartridge comes with its complete package, including stylus protection. Because of this, I can easily post the cartridge if required. The pictures show the excellent condition of the cartridge, which is not surprising given its low number of working hours. Pictures: see below
  12. Item: GAS Sleeping Beauty MC Cartridge. Retipped by the Garrott Bros Location: Sydney, Pennant Hills Price: $375 ono Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Liquidating vinyl setup for mate.

  13. Item: BENZ micro ace SL MC cartridge Location: sydney Price: 500 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: purchased to compare with my benz wood . decided to keep wood Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: purchased august with approx 200 hrs on . played for approx 2 hrs . from the last purchaser - "Having owned several Benz cartridges I think the ACE gives the most bang for the buck.

  14. Item: Hana SH High Output MC CartridgeLocation: Sydney Nth ShorePrice: $670 including delivery within AustraliaItem Condition: Near mint with less than 20 hours use. Includes original packing and unopened accessories.Reason for selling: Moving to low output. This is a stunning cartridge and I wouldn't be selling if I didn't need to channel funds in another direction. I also have a Hana EL (low output Elliptical) which is almost as good as this Shibata and have decided to keep the low output variant and move the SH on.Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD OnlyExtra Info: My brother brought this out for me from the UK a few months ago and it has been mounted on a Nasotec headshell on a Jelco 750L/Garrard 401 combination. It is an absolute gem, very smooth, detailed and with not a hint of glare. It is certainly my pick of MCs under $1k. Used only on rcm cleaned vinyl, this is like new.Pictures: I only have one pic handy which doesn't show the needle. I'll upload additional photos on the weekend.
