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: 8/10 Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: NORTH MELBOURNE State: VIC Payment Method: EFT or Cash on pick-up preferred Reason for selling: Upgraded Further information:
       
      I bought these amps off the original owner approximately two years ago. I thought they were a revelation compared to what I was using before Prima Luna. And I was also able to see why a fairly modestly priced pair of amps would get such a high recommendation in the Stereophile Recommended components reviews.
       
      In fact these were an upgrade on a Stereo Prologue Premium I was running (and sold when I bought these). One major difference from the upgrade was that instead of running KT88s and then trying KT120s and KT150s on the stereo amp to get enough power, I was able to run these on EL34 tubes and get both a more powerful, yet sweeter sound at the same time (although you can run KTs if you prefer).
       
      I did roll out the original Prima Luna EL34s and replace them with 2 lots of 4 Platinum Matched Tung-Sol tubes which (to my ears) gave an even better sound - the original tubes are provided as well, of course. I don't have a tube tester but I have had no problem with them and I'm guessing they have probably run about 1,000 hours.
       
      In terms of the smaller 12AU7 tubes, I am running Genalex Gold Lion ECC83s, again, to my ears, a significant upgrade on the original tubes.
       
      I replaced these about 6 months ago with a much higher up the tree Pass Labs XA30.8 Class A amp which also offers a sweet, tube-like sound. In that regard it is not that much different, but being solid-state is a possibly a fraction more balanced throughout the whole spectrum (swapping over was definitely not economically rational).
       
      One final note. The previous owner added the mirrors that sit behind the tubes as a "blingy" upgrade. It is not really my style to change away from original, but actually it doesn't look too bad, and so I never took them off - but I think you could easily do so if you prefer.
       
      In terms of a demo, I have one restriction which is that the only pair of speakers I have in the house is an Active pair, meaning I can't easily demonstrate these. If you can bring your own speakers, I can hook them up so you can listen to them in situ. 
         
      With the equivalent new pair costing $8k, I think these are a great way to get into tubes in a hassle-free way, with the auto-biasing etc making these no harder to run than solid state amps.
