TIMESTEP Technics SL-1200 SL-1210 New Precision Bearing

Recommended Posts

Item: Timestep Technics SL-1200, SL1210 New Precision Bearing

Location: OAK PARK, VIC 3046
Price: $450
Item Condition: NEW - UNOPENED (JUST GOT IT)
Reason for selling: NEW DIRECTION
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Deposit
Extra Info: Will ship Australia wide at buyers expense. 

 

This is a brand new unused Timestep bearing for the Technics SL-1200 & SL1210. I just received it from Dave at Timestep, but decided to go in a new direction while in transit. The price i've proposed is the price i paid less GST and shipping from the UK. So saving around $80. 

 

Technics SL-1200 SL-1210 New Precision Audiophile Bearing

The standard bearing cannot keep the oil in place.  Instead a high viscosity "anti-fling" oil must be used.  "Other" bearings can only be "topped up" and the oil not actually replaced.  Imagine not being able to change the oil in your car, only adding a bit now and again

 

Why would you want to change the oil ?  Well we found a fairly heavy oil works best with the Funk Platter and thinner oil for very heavy platters.  But you have the choice, you can take our advice, or change the oil to whatever, whenever !  BTW, unlike others, our bearing fits the Funk platter perfectly, as it should !

 

The Timestep bearing has the spindle as a solid single piece of polished 303 Stainless Steel with a much larger base diameter and the bearing is polished PB102 Phosphor Bronze. A silicon nitride ball and PTFE thrust pad are fitted. The whole assembly is in a captive oil bath so that you can use more suitable thin oil, or any oil of your choice.  

One image shows the Timestep bearing shaft on the left and the Technics on the right. The Technics bearing shaft has a cut out just below the brass part, resulting in a diameter of just 5.9 mm, the Timestep bearing shaft at this point is 10.4mm. This gives the Technics a critical bending moment around the reduced diameter. 

The main part of the Technics shaft bearing surface is 7.1mm diameter and the Timestep one is 11.1mm which results in a bearing surface increase of nearly 2.5 times more (actually 2.445). And that's a lot!  The other image is looking down into the captive shaft bearing. At the bottom would normally be the P.T.F.E. thrust pad and the silicon nitride ball bearing, and a lot of very nice oil. 

So with 1.76 times diameter at the weakest point and 2.5 times more bearing surface area, you can see why we get such great performance. 

We deliberately use the existing Technics bearing housing because it fits properly and being cast has great strength and rigidity, also it does not ring like a brass bell.  It keeps the cost down too !

You don't need any special tools, you don't need to modify the PCB and you don't need to remove parts to get it to fit.  A simple Philips screwdriver is all you need and less than 15 minutes of your time.

This is the best selling Technics bearing, users have reported more solid bass, considerably better timing, greater soundstage and a general "feel good" sensation.

      Item: Devialet 400 Mono Amplifiers/ Streamer/ DAC/ PhonoStage.
      Location: Adelaide 
      Price: $7900
      Item Condition: As New
      Reason for selling: NLR 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Selling a pair of Devialet 400 Mono Amplifiers in As New condition!
      Come with remote and original factory packaging. These amps don’t disappoint and they have an excellent Dac and PhonoStage. Cheers.
       
      * Even under the unforgiving microscope of the Magico Q7s, the pair of Devialets sounded like much, much, more expensive electronics. This level of dynamic verve, bass authority, clarity, and resolution is unprecedented at this price, in my experience.
      Just to check myself, at the end of the auditioning I switched back to the Berkeley Alpha USB and Alpha DAC reference digital front end, Soulution 725 preamp, and 701 monoblocks, a roughly $230k combination (which I had not heard for about two weeks). This juxtaposition only reinforced just how great a pair of Devialet 200s sound, and what an amazing value they represent. A mono pair is significantly better sounding in all respects than a single stereo unit.

      Item: FS: Monitor Audio Gold 200 5G - Satin White
      Location: Perth
      Price: $4,999 (RRP: $6,990). Free Delivery in Perth Metro - Interstate shipping at buyer's cost.
      Item Condition: Absolutely immaculate
      Reason for selling: Wrong colour!
      Payment Method: Bank Deposit
      Extra Info: These speakers are the brand new 5G Series. We were the first store to get a pair of new Gold speakers in for audition - at the time there was no colour option available. These present as new and are perfect in every way, not a blemish or mark. They have had their typical run in time - I would guess they have had no more of 100 hours use, 90 of which would have been the run-in period. We have had some assistance from the distributor in regard to moving these along to make way for our floor colour option of choice, so take advantage of this one-off special price of a truly beautiful sounding and looking speaker. Full five year warranty will apply.

      Item: Gieseler Groß DAC (USB Only)
      Location: South Yarra, Melbourne
      Price: $1425
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: Bought (the TOTL) Gieseler Fein II DAC
      Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer, PayPal
      Extra Info: Arguably difficult to find a better DAC without spending a lot more!
       
      A few months ago I impulse purchased Clay's new TOTL DAC, so my Groß DAC is available for sale. There has been a lot written by owners here of Gieseler's DAC's, the full list being here: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/126626-gieseler-dac-reviews-impressions/). But just to give you a sample of what people have said about the Groß DAC:
       
      From Max Headroom: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/246058-ps-audio-vs-devialet/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-3899124
      "At the other extreme is the Geiseler GroB DAC. I don't think I can find the words to explain how insanely good it is. @scumbag what system did you listen to the DS Jr and Geiseler GroB in? Did you say you couldn't tell a difference between the DirectStream and the Geiseler? Because the difference was so obvious to me and so dramatic its unbelievable. The Gieseler created more lifelike images of instruments and musicians, almost as if they're standing infront of you, better separation between instruments, better clarity with complex music. It's just a bargain at the asking price."
       
      From Rosco8: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/232237-gieseler-groß-dac-official-release/page/19/?tab=comments#comment-3872685
      "A new Grob owner.  It replaced a Cayin DAC (Valve/SS), and I also have an ARCAM-II DAC II, both quite good DACS, at least to my listening.  Very pleased with the Grob  ..  been running a couple of weeks now, great detail and I can hear little nuances in recordings I haven't heard before.  I listen to quite a range of material, from Tidal and FLACs I have rendered from my CD's.  Beautiful rendering of vocals, good separation and detail."
       
      From bhobba: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/234066-groß-dac-owners-thread/?tab=comments#comment-3805282
      "I will get right to it - my USB only GROB simply blows away the Direct Stream.   That's right - a 2.3k or so DAC takes out, and make no mistake about it, the difference is not subtle, the much much more expensive Direct Stream with the latest software etc (I think its about $8k or so here in Aus)."
       
      From Conch: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/232237-gieseler-groß-dac-official-release/page/20/?tab=comments#comment-3886445
      "I have compared the Groß to the Klein II, Chord 2qute and Accuphase Dac50 and the Groß has the edge over all of them imo. Better bass control, improved clarity, extremely musical and a natural tone that is engaging and enjoyable to listen to for hours on end with all genres of music."
       
      Adding my own 2 cents to the commentary, when I upgraded to the Groß from an iFi iDSD Micro, my impression was how much 'more natural' or less digital the sound was from the Groß while detail retrieval was more extended at both ends.
       
      Needless to say that the Groß DAC is a truly excellent DAC and amongst the best Australian designed and made DACs available. The unit I am selling has been 'babied' since it was purchased in November 2017 and had it's firmware chip and software updated in March 2018. The internal are set for XLR output but can be configured for RCA output (to resolve ground loop/hum issues). Included are the main DAC body, standard power supply, remote control (which never left it's packaging), and I can provide the user manual given to me and invoice of the purchase (PDF).
       
      Pickup is available in South Yarra, Melbourne and I am able to post Australia wide at your expense. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you may have.
