Price: $450
Item Condition: NEW - UNOPENED (JUST GOT IT)

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.

      The Lautus is an OFC cable with ferrite nodes placed at specific positions along the length. The website will tell you more about how they’re built. The ferrite nodes are intended to decrease any EMR being picked up by the cable which is especially useful for long lengths or noisy environments.
      A really nice sounding cable. Excellent condition .

      Item Condition: 8-10 just age and odd marks Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Perth State: Western Australia Payment Method: EFT Reason for selling: No usage  No use was going into HT set up but scrapped idea swapped/ bought from astronutter on here. Borrowed his text and images as unused since received.   Legendary American AYRE power amp.   Extra Info: this is one heavy amp but utterly refined.  
       
      Its a beast of an amp and was one of the best of the best in its day.
       
      A genuine 100 w/channel let’s this amp drive any speaker I have had with both finesse and authority Hooked up to my Magneplanars it created a deep and wide sound stage getting the last ounce of bass from the notoriously difficult to drive panels. 
       
      This amp can still hold its own with more modern high end amplifiers.  When it was first launched, it created quite a stir with numerous good reviews in the popular magazines.
       
      I am not the original owner but I know a little of its history: it appears to have been driving Maggie’s for a large part of its life and it is still going strong.
       
      I don’t have the ordinal box or paperwork, but it will be posted very securely.
       
      Dont hesitate to contact me for more information if you are interested.
       
      A technician gave it a once over prior's to listing to make sure everything on board is working perfectly. All good.
