FS: Technics SL-110/SL-1100 serious DD turntable

Recommended Posts

Item: Technics SL-110/SL-1100 DD Turntable, modified
Location: Baulkham Hills 2153
Price: $895
Item Condition: good, see photos
Reason for selling: reducing from 3 to 2 turntables
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit
Extra Info: 

The SL-110/1100 were made by Technics back in the late 1970s and were bigger and heavier than the DJ standard SL-1200. More of a purist stereo turntable, particularly as they were often modified. The SL-110 came with a timber armboard but without an arm, while the SL-1100 had a metal armboard and a fairly unimpressive standard Technics arm.

With Technics making a new generation of its extremely popular direct drive turntables – costing thousands of course – and reintroducing them to Australia, I can say that this has been a superb turntable for my music enjoyment. The heavy platter gives a stable speed, and I have not heard that rather obscure thing called “cogging” which might have been more noticeable in some of the lesser brands or more lightly built models on the market in the 1970s/1980s. There have been a number of superb direct drive turntables, many only sold in Japan or Europe. Apart from Technics there have been excellent models from Denon, Luxman, JVC, Goldmund, Dual and Nakamichi.

This one, originally a SL-1100, has seen some changes in its lifetime. I’ve had it for about ten years, bought it incomplete, and have refurbished aspects of it over that time. It’s now fitted with an Acos Lustre arm (nice) and a plywood arm board (basic but quite ok). You can get custom arm boards made by a chap in Germany for around $300 if you want to glitz it up – see this ebay ad: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Tone-Arm-Panel-for-Technics-SL-110-1100/332955230922?hash=item4d85ada2ca:g:9vUAAOSwXI1cFVFc

I also had made the heavy duty lid which cost heaps! Included also are a dust bug, CEC-Micro (I think) cartridge, and 45rpm centre adaptor. UPDATE: I've added another arm board to this offer, heavily made, plywood, could suit for other arms, bonus!

This is way beyond what $895 will buy you in new turntables, and could be further improved/upgraded with whatever arm, arm board and cartridge you’d like to use.

      Item: alpine pdx m12 sub amp
      Location: kingaroy 
      Price: 400
      Item Condition: good used
      Reason for selling: no longer running sub
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      bought a while ago and has had about 2 years  of use. 
      top of the line model, Rrp $999.
      compact class D so runs cool and fits anywhere, will drive any sub.
      have a new baby so don't need a sub in the car now.
      good condition but some writing is rubbing off the Top, I used some sort of cleaning polish that stripped the printing a bit. Sorry. 😢
      Amp is about the size of a decent hardcover book by the way, so could be posted for $30 odd just about anywhere.
      also have a Type x subwoofer (driver only, box got damaged) I'd do for $250 with the amp (their best dual voice coil sub) or $300 separately. Currently have the driver in storage so can't take pictures of it at the moment. Here's a link for your perusal though.

      Item:  2 x LSR4312 15" Subs, 2 x LSR4326P monitors.
      Location: WA
      Price: $1000 decreasing $200 per week till sold. 
      Item Condition: Good
      Reason for selling: Not needed.
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:  These were state of the art in studio monitoring some years ago. Fully active system with 6 inbuilt Class AB amps. Has all sorts of analog and digital inputs , RMC room bass equalisation , can be CAT5 networked to be controlled simultaneously .
      In "flat" mode they are true studio monitors, very accurate and detailed, but with a bit of inbuilt EQ they  sound very nice and very dynamic . Great sound-staging and imaging , excellent bass from the 2 x 15" active subs. 
      Just add a good tube preamp and they sound REALLY GOOD . List price new was around $6000. Comes with manuals and all cables . 
      A few negatives though- JBL put a protective film on front of speakers and it goes sticky over time. Its been removed, but some discoloration of the front panels has occurred.  One of the 4326P monitors has less output than the other. Fortunately they have independent level controls and adjustment can be made for equal level. It's about 5dB difference, but adjusted they sound perfect. I believe JBL have a pretty good service if buyer wanted to have fixed, but they work great as is. 
      I've had them running for a few days as they were in storage, and no problem, but sold as is. 
      Do your research on web - JBL LSR4312 and JBL LSR4326P - they have a good reputation for studio use, and maybe not appreciated for stereo, but they do sound excellent with a good preamp.  Keep an eye on them and the date, you could get a real bargain, must be sold.

      Item: 64 Ears U18T
      Location: Sydney, Northern Beaches 
      Price: $3K + Fees + Shipping 
      Item Condition: 9/10 - MINT
      Reason for selling: NLR
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      I don't think I've seen a pair of U18T's for sale on Stereonet and for good reason. Just over a year old and purchased from Minidisc in mint condition. I've only used one pair of tips as per the picture. 
      I didn't expect to purchase the U18T's I fully expected to walk away with either a pair of Empire Ear Legend X's or Tia Fourte's. Feeling a little dismayed at the Legend X's over the top bass (Í'm a bass head who loves his House and Techno but even I thought they were a bit over the top), and the Fourte's tipped up/hot treble which I found fatiguing within 5 minutes.
      I auditioned the U18T's as a bit of an after-thought, thinking I'd hear them purely for the sake of completeness. I expected them to be linear, transparent and that's about it. Well. Yes, they are all of those things...and more. The U18T's are incredibly musical and within 2 minutes I turned to Wing grinning from ear to ear. Since then I've been floored by the sound-stage, resolution and musicality. Incredibly resolving but never analytical, bombastic, beautifully defined bass. They really are the real deal.
      The only reason I'm selling them is because I have access to my own office since opening up my own business where I've gone rather over the top and put in place a desktop system with enough power to drive my Abyss TC's as per the picture below. Other wise nothing I've heard in the IEM space comes close to my tastes. 
      Lastly I'll include the stock 64 ears cable (which is okay at best) as well as an ALO reference 8 3.5mm to 2pin which I found a material improvement.
