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: Wells Audio Milo SS Headamp (fully upgraded) 230V

      Price: $2450 OBO (rrp US$2450 plus shipping & taxes)
      Item Condition: As new
      Reason for selling: Not being used
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      The Milo is a true beast of a headamp - it drives 12W into 32ohm with THD of just 0.06%. 
       
      So if you want a totally neutral headamp that will easily power any headphones on the market look no further.
       
      This unit is fully upgraded, with the US$200 optional XLR inputs and US$550 upgrade to attenuators and resistors. Outputs to 4pin XLR and 1/4".
       
      This is reference level solid state nirvana for your head-fi needs. 
       
      Unit is in perfect condition, and have original packaging for safe shipping.
