FS: Denon DP60L Direct Drive Vintage Awesomeness

Recommended Posts

Item: Denon DP60L Direct Drive Vintage Turntable

Location: Canberra ACT

Price: $1100 + Packing/Shipping

Item Condition: Excellent cosmetic condition with only a couple of blemishes both of which I’ve tried to highlight in the pictures. One is a graze on the left side of the plinth (minor colour repairs have hidden it well), the other is a small blemish in the plinth veneer between the tonearm and drive body towards the rear of the turntable (about 1cm long and hard to clearly photograph). Original mat is in great condition and the dustcover is very clean. Operationally all functions are working perfectly – both speeds lock immediately, the arm descends slowly and auto lifts gently at the end of the LP and the platter stops spinning quickly when ‘stop’ is pressed. I purchased this from a former member who directly imported it from his Japanese contact - it was serviced electronically, lubricated and tested before leaving Japan.

Reason for selling: Desire to upgrade / Try something new

Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only

Extra Info: 

This would be a brilliant way for someone who wants to try a foray into vinyl without spending mega bucks. This table bettered my enhanced Rega RP6 in pretty much every department (except the Gloss Black Modern Looks one)

This example includes everything you need to have a high-end experience:

'S' Arm + Heavy Counter weight

Straight Arm + Light Counter Weight

Tortech Voltage Transformer (Bought new with turntable)

Vintage Denon Headshell (~6g)

Original rubber mat


I have not included a cartridge though I can provide some insights into how Dynavector, Benz and Supex carts have worked. I can look to package the unit for shipping (or take to Pack and Send) but would require any purchaser to take shipping risk as there are no original (or professional packing materials). My preference is for local collection (and demonstration).


Denon Description

The DP-60L has a head shell integrated into the arm tube, with its connector portion located at the base of the tube.

The tube is a replaceable S-shaped arm tube with standard 4P connector.

By replacing the low mass arm tube with the S-shaped tube, virtually all head shells or integrated cartridges can be utilised.

By having the ability to use the widest selection of cartridges, your audio enjoyment will be significantly broadened.

      Item: Linn LP12
      Location: Perth
      Price: 1600 ono
      Item Condition: good
      Reason for selling: small child is now almost ready to destroy everything I own. Best it go somewhere safe.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Early Linn LP12 for sale equipped with Rega RB300 tonearm and Linn Asak moving coil cartridge. I am told that I am the third owner of this beauty with the original owner having it for many decades. The second owner got a newer Linn rather than upgrade. The fluted plinth is in pretty good condition with a few small nicks as seen in the photos. Lid is crack free with only minor swirling. Hinges replaced by myself so are almost new. No idea about the hours on the cartridge but it plays without a hitch and stylus looks very straight. I've put on less than 50 hours personally having only got it right before our child was born. It has been well looked after by all owners and I even have the original documents. Bonus shim for the tonearm in case you need to raise the height to accommodate a different cartridge. Happy for inspections for anyone in Perth.

      Item: peachtree MB3 speakers
      Location: Melbourne 
      Price: $50
      Item Condition: some light scratches but not too bad
      Reason for selling: not using
      Payment Method: Pickup only
      Extra Info:
       Was part of a set with the peachtree music box but am hanging on to the amp. The speakers would make good computer or background speakers for someone. They don't completely embarrass themselves and sound pretty decent, and solidly built but they are little compact things after all.

      Item: alpine pdx m12 sub amp
      Location: kingaroy 
      Price: 400
      Item Condition: good used
      Reason for selling: no longer running sub
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      bought a while ago and has had about 2 years  of use. 
      top of the line model, Rrp $999.
      compact class D so runs cool and fits anywhere, will drive any sub.
      have a new baby so don't need a sub in the car now.
      good condition but some writing is rubbing off the Top, I used some sort of cleaning polish that stripped the printing a bit. Sorry. 😢
      Amp is about the size of a decent hardcover book by the way, so could be posted for $30 odd just about anywhere.
      also have a Type x subwoofer (driver only, box got damaged) I'd do for $250 with the amp (their best dual voice coil sub) or $300 separately. Currently have the driver in storage so can't take pictures of it at the moment. Here's a link for your perusal though.
