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.

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.

      up for sale are my beautiful, wonderful sounding Proac Response D2’s.
       
      If you haven’t heard these before you are welcome to have a listen. A beautifully balanced speaker , extraordinary high frequencies,  midrange to die for, bass that goes below 40hz..
       
      I’m in my third mid life crisis (boats, cars, speakers in that order) I have to confess a long term intimate relationship with the most seductive of speakers - Maggies. Maggie’s just keep calling me back with their siren call, their boxless, holographic imaging. Don’t get me wrong, the Proac‘S are no slouches sounding as boxless as a box speaker can sound - if you get my drift.

      there you are, it all about the passion.
       
      talk to me if you are interested.
       
      i know these are not the best images but they are best I’ve got at the moment. I can borrow a decent camera and possibly even take decent images, don’t count on it I apparently don’t have an artistic bone in my body
       
      ps/- photos taken in the old family room, my new DEDICATED room is so much nicer. 😁
       
      thanks 
       
      lars
