FS: AUDIO NOTE io cartridge

Recommended Posts

Item:            AUDIO NOTE-Kondo io phono cartridge
Location:    Inner Melbourne
Price:           $3800
Item Condition: excellent (recently retipped)
Reason for selling: too many cartridges
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct bank deposit only
Extra Info:

An early example of Audio Note-Kondo io mc phono cartridge. 

I purchased this from Japan and had the cartridge checked and retipped by ANA Mighty sound in France.  Retipped with Van del haul stylus.  Damper have been checked and suspension rebuilt.  

 

So this is literally a new cartridge.

Played for about 10 hours for testing since rebuilt.  They are quite rare and hardly come up for sale.  The cost of the rebuilt alone is in excess of $2000.

I have quite a few cartridges so just have to let go some to better home.

 

Output 0.1 mv with 1 ohm impedance so will work with a minimum of x30 step up ratio and high gain phono stage.

 

ANA mighty sound is highly reputable cartridge repairer and builder in France.

Their Sculpture A3 cartridges were used by Thomas Schick, Frank Schroeder in Sibatone (western electric), Vitus and Thrax demo rooms among others in the recent 2019 Munich high end show.

François from Ana mighty have repaired and rebuilt Koetsu and SPU for me previously.  They are always careful to ensure the original sound signature of the cartridge design are retained, especially for the classics like koetsu and AN/Kondo.

      Item Condition: Perfect 99-100 Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Perth State: Western Australia Payment Method: Paypal, cash, EFT Reason for selling: Changed direction High end Swiss made Goldmund Telos 200 Mono blocks in mint condition as new with books, no boxes but can pack easily to travel east. Have a Matching Goldmund Mimesis 37 Signature pre amp for sale too and part of my other listings.
       
       
      Goldmund Telos 200 monoblock amps. Matching numbers pair.
      Bought recently for a bi ammp setup that never really got off the ground, so unused.

      These are in superb condition. 
      Audition available for local buyer. 

      For a PAIR of Goldmund monoblocks this is a bargain! No need to say anymore, they are Goldmund! Over seas and on hifi shark they are much more expensive.
       
      Reduced price for quick sale. Price fixed.,
       
      Amps have a dac and can take digital and analogue inputs directly into the rear of the amps.
       
      Weigh about 20 kilos each. But both fit into the space for one big stereo amp.

      Item Condition: EXCELLENT - Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Perth State: Victoria Payment Method: Paypal, cash, EFT Reason for selling: No use -or need     Price drop   Stunning xlr cables from Entreq - Energy Transforming Systems, I have a matching Minimus block for earthing that can be used with these for sale separately. 2010 is part of the model name not the year. Also matching speaker cables 2.5 metre in seperate listing.    
      1) 1x Entreq Konstantin series 1  xlr balanced cables 1 metre pair
       
      Specification:
      Separate cable for positive and negative signals Asymmetrical design Positive and negative cables are spun clockwise and anticlockwise respectively. Adapted lengths to minimise the antenna effect. DIC Dedicated contacts so the area on the mass of the contact areas correspond to the cable area. Wood in the contact framework. Non-magnetic and non-conductive. Only pure copper and silver in the signal paths. No alloys Drain wire instead of shielding in order to connect to a pure earth point (External Earth Drain System) Cotton covering instead of synthetic materials EEDS External Earth Drain System - This entails the shielding / drain wire not being connected to the device’s negative pole, but is connected to another external earth point. This way, the cable drains off the interference/noise that the shielding absorbs to the ground outside of the signal paths, instead of the usual mixing it together with the signal wire at the connection to the devices.  
       
      Entreq Konstantin Serie II Infinity XLR Signal Cable
       
      Our original first line... and in a way the mother to all of Entreq's cables. Now upgraded to Serie II with outstanding price/performance. Konstantin was actually the first in Entreq's product line and gave birth to the principles that they had been working on for years. It's many years on now and the cable has advanced further but the truth and the heart of the design is still the same. The Konstantin is still one of the most accesable all round performing cables Entreq make.
      It doesn't matter if you use Konstantin in an entry level system or a Higher End system, Konstantin always performs very well. It will almost always let your system perform beyond the limits or restrictions of musicality that are often enforced by other cables.
      Konstantin cables have been gently updated during the years. In 2015 the Konstantin line had a total upgrade to Serie II with new developed connectors and improved design. Konstantin line got the award " Most wanted product " 2009. Relative to Discover, Konstantin will offer you more detail and better control.
      Infinity line:
      The way the cables used to drain away the noise / stay currents are designed has an signify effect on the result. Entreq believe this is due to there being such a high frequency and low voltage in the current with which Entreq deal with.  When Entreq developed the Apollo Network cable, Apollo RG 45, Entreq more or less stumble in to one of the most breaktroughing developments so far regarding earth cables and grounding. Entreq test with expose the conductors for very high pressure. When this conductors was used for signal transmission it was not a big hit. But for grounding it´s one of the biggest improvment Entreq ever came across.
      There are many theorys why Entreq get this improvment when Entreq treat the conductors with high pressure. To be honest Entreq dont know which or what it is that makes this big improvment, and frankly speaking Entreq don´t care at the moment. The important is that this is one of the biggest leap in grounding for Entreq so far.
      Another detail is the wood tube on all of the Eartha Infinity cables. Also Entreq are not sure if it´s because it reduce vibrations or radiation that Entreq notice a significant improvment with the wood tube on Eartha Infinity.     Specification:

      About Entreq
      Entreq was founded 1999 and are today, a truly Swedish company, they are one of the very few companies that develop, manufacture and produce our own products. Because of this approach you will never see them immitate other brands or their technical solutions. Consequently their products are not only distinctive in their constructive materials & design but also in their connective processes. This control over each and every aspect, in conjunction with their unique philosophy and design brief, means they are able to focus purely, with no compromise, on performance.

      *Slight colour variation on 1 woofer , Spoke To Mike Lenehan and said nothing to worry about but if you wanted a new one would be $175 from Mike, Works perfectly I am guessing initial owner had in sunlight maybe. Grills never used in wrappers still and might need magnets but in new packaging and mint condition. Again Mike will fix up if required.
