Item: Original Vintage Knosti Disco-Antistat Record Washing Device

Reason for selling:  I have a VPI record cleaning machine
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info:  This is the German-made - pre-unification (says Made in W. Germany) - original version of probably the most economical record cleaning device on the market!

 

  • Cleans 7", 10" and 12" Records 
  • All fluids etc are supplied in the box.
  • Manual Record Cleaner. This is a very cost effective wet cleaning system for LP’s.
  • Supplied with Full instructions and 1.0 Litres of Cleaning Fluid
  • Easy To Use
  • Excellent Value
  • Extra Cleaning Fluid Easily obtainable


Submerges a record in a bath of cleaning fluid.

The principle is simple, two discs with a 100mm diameter, clamp each side of the record's label, thus protecting it during cleaning, this then rests in a groove at the top of the rectangular cleaning bath, the bath is topped up with supplied cleaning fluid, the record is then rotated around its central axis. As the record passes through the bath, two sets of brushes clean each side of the album. Once you’re happy with the results simply remove the record and centre clamps, and place your clean album on the rack to dry. Because the cleaning solution contains wetting agent, records dry without smears. When cleaning is complete, pour your used cleaning fluid from the bath through a filtering funnel back into you cleaning fluid bottle for re-use.

      This is a sensational pair of Australian made monitors. I could wax lyrical about how great they are, but you can just read pete_mac's listing of a similar pair from a few years ago to understand how highly regarded these are -> If pete_mac says they are good, you know it's true..  
       
      Cosmetically, note these items:
      The cabinets are in VGC overall with just a few minor marks. One rear corner has a small ding. (see pic) If you have the time and patience, these cabinets would look amazing if you removed all the drivers then sand and re-stain them. The cloth grilles are a bit warped. This happened because when I bought them the covers were quite duty so I immersed them in water to wash them. I thought the frames were resin, but it turns out they are a fibrous cardboard/foam material and they absorbed the water. The warping is not noticeable from front on. There s a small hole in the fabric of one cover.  
      Original heavy metal stands included, as pictured.
       
      Audition may be possible (with COVID-19 precautions) in near future if Melbourne metro COVD-19 restrictions are eased.
       
      Questions welcome.

      This is a sweet little Denon tuner from around 1979-80 which was produced to match the SA-3900 amp. These units are very rare, and different from other Denon units of the same era - note the different logo and fonts on the faceplate.
       
      This tuner has a few scratches around the power switch, but all lights and the VU meters work. The tuner section is decent and will pick up stations with just bare speaker wire. The AM antenna is intact.
       
      There's some info on The Vintage Knob about the 3900 pair.
      SA-3900 & ST-3900
       
      Note: the Pioneer TX-608 tuner is available in a separate listing.

      This is a really nice tuner from Pioneer's 1979-1982 fluoroscan series.  It is super sensitive, picking up FM signals with just speaker wire. There are a few minor marks on the faceplate, but the pictures make them look worse than they are.  The AM antenna is intact.
       
      If you own a 508, 608 or 708 amp, this tuner looks great alongside them.  I've included a net picture as an example.
       
      Note: The Denon tuner in the picture is available in a separate listing.

      I love this amp, but it is currently housed in my man cave and is not getting the attention it deserves.  It should be with someone who will use it every day.  It is a damn fine piece of machinery and happily drives pretty demanding speakers.  It has that typical 1970s Kenwood sound – punchy, a bit forward, but never harsh or shrill.  It got a write up at the Vintage Knob – so you know it has cred!

      http://www.thevintageknob.org/kenwood-KA-8100.html

      Have a look at a model 600 Supreme from 1975 and you will discover that the design philosophy of that iconic amplifier was carried over into the 7100 / 8100 / 9100 product line a few years later!
       
      The unit is NEAR MINT.  There are a couple of vey small nicks on the edge of the face plate, but otherwise the face is unmarked.  The case was a bit faded so I re-sprayed it with gloss black and it looks sensational.  The original photos were taken before the respray.  The indoor pics are after the respray.

      It has MM and MC capability for your turntable.
       
      When restrictions are eased in Melbourne metro, auditions with COVID safe precautions may be possible.
       
      Happy to ship at your expense.

      Item Condition: Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Mordialloc State: Victoria Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Downsizing (*sigh*) Further information:
       
      I've owned this amp for a few years and it has always brought a smile to my face. It looks stunning and sounds amazing. Crazy amount of power on tap (110w into 8 ohms / 130 into 6).
       
      Side panels are custom made with high gloss Jarrah varnish - they really add to the presentation of this amp.
       
      There is a bit of pitting on the top of the amp, but a light sand and re-spray will make it look great. No major marks on the faceplate other than a small visible scratch to the top left of the Function Selector knob. 
       
      It is a hefty 18kgs and includes coax and optical digital line inputs.
       
      MM and MC phono inputs.
       
      I've listened to this amp alongside the similar era and specced Sony TA-F700ES, and the Denon kills it for finesse, control and presentation.
       
      Pretty rare in Australia too. The original sale price in Japan was the equivalent of $1900 today.
       
      Now that restrictions have been eased a little in Victoria, auditions with COVID safe precautions may be possible.
