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: Monster Cable Black Platinum RG6 Antenna Cable (5 Meters/16.4 Feet)
      Location: Sydney (North Shore)
      Price: $50 $45 each including postage (no signature). I have 2 available.

      Extra Info:
       
      For optimum picture and sound, connect your AV components with Monster Video Antenna Cable. It delivers a sharper, more lifelike video picture and improved audio performance from all basic VCR's, TV's and satellite receivers. Ferrite isolator helps reduce interference for sharper, clearer video picture. Compatible with 100Hz TV's.
      Certified to work with frequencies up to 3Ghz, Monster RG6 Black Platinum cables give a better frequency range and more signal variety than their RG59 counterparts. Built with a thicker and more stable shielding, our RG6's signals will remain clear when traelling through extended lengths of cable, meaning that your signal won't degrade over distances. RG6 cables are also the preferred cable of choice to be used with satellite signals, the inner copper core and aluminium shielding help to send a stronger signal and fade out noise that other coax cables can't. Multiple levels of intricate fabrication and carefully chosen materials ensure our RG6 cable strength remains of a superior quality to our competitors.
      All Monster Cable RG6 Cables include the following:
      Fine-stranded copper centre conductors that enhance signal transfer
      Aluminium shielding to improve impedance and stability
      Low-loss dilectric that maintains 75-ohm impedance for precise video reproduction
      Corrosion-resistant 24k Gold contact connectors that provide maximum signal transfer and durability

      These are superb cables but I’ve purchased other Nordost cables and these are now not being used. 

      All sets have bare cable ends only. There are some light bends here and there but this does not affect the performance in any way.
       
      Postage, if required, is $9 each lot in an Australia Post satchel. Happy to combine postage for single buyer grabbing multiple lots.
