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.

Beautiful! That cartridge would be perfect for playing the Prince back catalogue. GLWTS!

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.

This would have to be the best turntable combo I've ever seen on SNA, GLWTS!

      Price: $980 Item Condition: Very good Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact,I can ship this item Suburb or Town: Adelaide State: South Australia Payment Method: Cash, Bank deposit; PayPal without fees Reason for selling: Purchased EC 4.8 preamp Further information:  Price dropped from $1100. Includes remote and will be well packaged with free insured courier for an interstate purchaser. I preferred this EC pre to a number of others (EC and more exotic) I have used with my EC 180 mono block power amplifiers. It has only one single ended (RCA) input and one balanced (XLR) input selectable by a push button on the front which keeps the electronics inside very straightforward. But if you don't want to use balanced,  you can use adaptors to get two RCA inputs.
