Hi Everyone, this turntable I made myself is up for sale.

 

The plinth is 6 sheets of 16mm MDF, hand finished and spray painted in gloss black. The Denon motor unit runs smoothly and silently and holds speed perfectly. The Acos Lustre tonearm is in mint condition and installed exactly to specification. Offered with Ortofon MC10 Mk II cartridge - with brand new cantilever and stylus tip  from Audio Dynamics/Garrott Brothers. Receipt available for this work completed just a few weeks ago. As hard as this might be to believe, sound wise it gives my Michell Orbe a run for it's money. I'm only selling because I have also built a slightly improved version which I am keeping myself.

 

Very unique looks (everyone that has seen it loves it).  Able to audition by appointment if you are serious. There is some flexibility re the cartridge included (I have a few, or it can be sold without a cartridge if you prefer) and also I have a different Acos tonearm that could be included instead. Price will be adapted according to final spec of course. I'm confident that if anyone makes the time to come and see and hear it they will end up taking it away with them!

 

Even if you're not a buyer, let me know what you think of it anyway! I have had such fun making it.

I love it.....but which one is for sale? The one in the first picture or the one in the rest of the pictures? They are not quite the same.....I assume the first pic is actually your 'improved version' and the other one is the actual sale item.....or is it the other way around?😐

Hi Stevoz, apologies for the confusion. It is the same turntable, just taken in various stages of completion! I'll revise the pictures later tonight to ensure only those of the completed tt are there and I'll also add more detailed pics. You're not the first to ask.

Hi Everyone,

 

I have been asked to provide a bit more information and some more pictures. Also to clarify some things. 

So....I have two of these turntables - the prototype (which is for sale) and the slightly improved version that I am keeping. The original pictures below are all of the one that is for sale however they were taken at different times and hence one has the badge and there are different cartridges installed in different pics.

 

New pics below were all taken tonight and apart from those of the motor unit and the one of the underside are all of the turntable that is for sale in the current state and at the indicated price. The pics of the motor unit  are identical in every respect to the one installed in the turntable. The inside picture is simply to indicate the laminations of MDF used to construct the plinth as a couple of members asked about that.

 

A few members from interstate have contacted me and the answer is yes I would be prepared to pack safely and ship at the buyers expense. As a guide the box dimensions would be approximately 600mm x 500mm x 200 mm and a packing weight in the vicinity of 10-12 kilos. 

 

One final thing I should have said - this runs on 110 volts so a step down transformer is required. I can advise any prospective buyer of where to get one for around $30,

      Item Condition: Very good Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Echuca State: VIC Payment Method: EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: NLR funding other projects Further information: EOI. I purchased this from a fellow SNAer 8 years ago.  Hardly played as I need more power for my speakers and my large listening area. Certainly looks good  sitting on the bench. Also have spare valves see pics. The screws holding  the valve protection cage were missing when I purchased the amp.
      All the information you need is here www.customanalogue.com
      Have original carton, can help with delivery between Echuca and Mornington

      Item Condition: Good Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Gold Coast State: QLD Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Change of Config Further information:
      Torn between keeping this and build a canadian centric home theatre but it's not easy to find a reasonably priced main speakers.   Another issue I have is I don't have the open space where this can sit and it doesn't sound optimal with the back ports inside a shelf.   There's a small nick  during transport but cannot be seen when grills are on.
