When i was a kid i found a silver solid state Pioneer power amp and pre at the auctions that was quite high end and looked similar.
The sound was amazing!

That is one of the best restoration I have ever seen. Its in better than brand new condition.

 

It was nice to see that this tech will cover the entire faceplate with masking tape before working on any vintage unit. And that love towards vintage units reflects in rest of his work too.

 

Never thought you will sell this beauty ! GLWTS.

Request for Admin to edit the post and remove the doubled up videos. Tried to edit some typos and the post ended up like this. Not sure what happened. Can you please help?

      Item: Grado Reference Master Cartridge
      Location: Melbourne South-Eastern Suburbs
      Price: $400.00
      Item Condition: Very Good
      Reason for selling: Upgrade
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, or happy to post at buyers expense
      Extra Info: I have owned this cartridge from new - purchased from Mike Kontor in 2006.
       
      The cartridge would have had approximately 500 hours of use. Over the years it has been mounted on a SME 3009 Series III, an Audio Technica AT1100, a Rega RB250, an Audiomods Series V and a Moerch DP-6 - it has behaved flawlessly over the years so I will have no hesitation to hold onto it should a buyer not be found.
       
      It is the high output Reference version, as opposed to the low output Statement version.
       
      Some key specs:
       
      Output - 4.8 mV
      Input Load - 47,000 Ohms
      Weight - 6.00 g
      Tracking Force - 1.50 g

      I have done my best to show the condition of the cartridge in the attached pictures.
       
      Any questions, let me know.
