Item: J Sikora Max Black Turntable - Murasakino Sumile Cartridge - Debaer ONYX Tonearm

Recommended Posts

Location: Perth, happy to transport

Price: 18k package - parts: Turntable: $7500 (RRP 12k) Cartridge: $6800  Tonearm: $6800  (RRP 15k)

Item Condition: Excellent, like new, cart has less than 40 hours on it.

Reason for selling: Not being used. At all.

Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only

Extra Info: I placed an order for this not long ago after doing some pretty heavy research and hearing lots of components in Munich.

This combo has been published at Mono & Stereo:

This is the J Sikora Initial Max Black Turntable with all the fruit - every  accessory & upgrade available. This sounds as good as you can imagine but without weighing 100's of kgs like other items in the line.

The tonearm is a stunner, I would have liked to go for the complete Debaer package (this is the best turntable I have ever heard at any price) but it was north of $85,000 without a cartridge.  Not common in Australia but a staple in many cost-no-object reference systems throughout Europe. These guys make precision aerospace parts for a day job – the engineering on this in beyond what you normally see in audio components.

Murasakino Sumile - consistently rated as one of the best cartridges available at any price - I think this represents the biggest bargain here out of all the kit as it will take your listening experience somewhere very special. You will not see many of these on the market.

Magnificent…  

 

As unlikely as it may be, should you separate them - I would be keen on the tonearm  (is it 9.5..?)

The way I read it is that the turntable, tonearm and cartridge are for sale separately, with the tonearm being $6800.

Ok, apologies - I read it as a 18K package..

Correct,

 

I would prefer to sell as a package but will consider separating.

      Price: $3900 Item Condition: Used 9.5/10 Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Morley State: Western Australia Payment Method: Cash, direct deposit Reason for selling: Upgraded to Revel F208 Item:  Falcon Studio 30 floorstanding speakers ( walnut finish) 
      Location: Perth
      Price:  $4300 ono  + postage
      Item Condition: 9,9- no marks, scratches , spotless
      Reason for selling: Revel F208 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash,, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
       
      I bought these in April 2019 , intrigued by the design and the reviews (below) and also through much discussion with Andy at Audiofix over their suitability in my room. in short they work fine in my room and with their down firing port , makes for a lot of versatility in room positioning.  Ultimately I enjoyed their sound enough to sell my Dynaudio confidence 5. 
       
      but as always in this great game, a recent read up and current home demo of Revel F208 have made me decide to purchase them as hopefully an “ end game” speaker. Well that’s the plan 😎
       
      these present as new , out of the boxes and set up -   No marks at all. So like new with a discount price.
       
      sounds wise, I play a wide variety of music through them and found them to be detailed and balanced, never becoming over bright  the high and mids in particular are impressive. Female vocals in particular sound very nice. The bass is fast and well defined - certainly not plodding.  These could be an ideal speakers for someone liking the Proac, Spendor or Sonus Fabre sound. 
       
      Build quality is spot on, weight in at 35kg each, with 25mm cabinets made in Italy and the heavy and solid plinths.  At a pinch they do look a bit like mid period Sonus  Faber, but certainly they look even more impressive in the flesh. With their design and slimline dimensions, could be a alternative to a similar priced standmount? 
       
      I have the boxes (3) and packaging so transport/courier isn’t an issue. Happy demo at home to interested parties
       
      boxes are 115cm long x 33cm wide and 45cm deep weight would be about 40 kgs per box.
       
      interesting fact - Falcon are distributed the USA by Mofi electronics. 
       
      Cheers dave
