Price: $450
Item Condition: NEW - UNOPENED (JUST GOT IT)
Reason for selling: NEW DIRECTION

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: Audeze Isine LX planar magnetic iem

      Price: 200
      Item Condition: perfect condition
      Reason for selling: Need something with isolation

      Extra Info:
      The little brother of the isine 10, uses the same driver but in a different housing. Tremendous soundstage for a iem and great detail retrieval with phenomenal imaging. These have being tuned for the lowest distortion across the board, so to get the most out of these, a cipher cable from audeze or use of the audeze reveal plugin is a must, these iem's full potential is unlocked with dsp.

      Item: Oyaide Neo AS-808 B V2 BNC Digital Coaxial Cable (0.6m) X 2
      Location: Sydney
      Price: $65 Posted (RRP $98)
      Item Condition: New
      Reason for selling: NLR
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Bought them (from the below link) but didnt end up using and sitting idle for the past 11 months. Took it out for photos.

      The AS-808 BNC is a great cable for Word Clock systems. The central conductor is made of 102SSC produced by Oyaide. This core demonstrates an incredible conductivity level of 102.3% IACS (after annealing process). There is a very low level of impurities or signal loss. Between the central conductor and polyethylene tube, this cable features an applied air chamber which helps prevent dielectric loss.
       
      Oyaide have employed a double-shielding structure which is composed of a copper foil shield ( 100% shielding ratio) and 102SSC braided shield (90% shielding ratio). The BNC plug is made of Delrin and brass for high rigidity. Low-dielectric Teflon has been used for the inner insulator to minimise signal loss.
