Further information:

 Recently bought this turntable from Design Build Listen,  this was always a dream deck for me to buy - however sudden change in plan has me reluctantly, and tentatively putting it up as an expression of interest at this stage.

These decks are rarely seen here in Australia, Simon Brown from design build listen has been perfecting them after his early prototype a few years ago and this is the latest improved version.
His service and support is second to none!

This deck has the highest torque motor I've ever come across, and electronic  brake with an ultra thick rubber belt -  and Simon Brown told me he always admired the Technics SP10 in this regard and incorporated in the design.
Plus has DC with electronic speed control and speed servo control referencing the platter to maintain perfect speed stability.

Zentroidal 3 point suspension system with adjustable feet.

Screw down see through acrylic clamp.
The Wand 14 - 4 Turntable new price is $4800

I am selling it with my Wand Plus 10.3" tonearm, which has had the wiring upgraded to the ultimate wire - Nordost Odin in a continuous length to the Eichmann bullet plugs.


The 10.3 Wand Plus sells for $2365 Inc. Nordost rewire.
This has the latest superior base with armlift incorporating a clip in holder for the arm.
Earlier versions utilised a rubber band to loop over and around.


Might possibly split the deck and arm if separate buyers are interested, however it would be a shame to break the two as obviously designed around achieving maximum performance with each other.

Cartridge is not included in the price of course,  but if one is required l have an optional MC available. 

Priced keenly  for a quick sale of an effectively brand new turntable. 


Have original packaging so can be safely posted.

not sure what this is doing for sale here. I think i and a few others have seen evils vinyl setup go up in notches over the years and gee this was a huge jump up in things with step up with this arm and then deck vs previous linn effort etc. hope not a step he regrets... I see its only an EOI so best grab out of his cold dead hands...before changes his mind... :D

If so, I'll grab the Ayon. :)

Edit.... because I've already got a Wand arm and I can vouch for their quality and sound.

Possibly if not conversant with turntables, wouldn't need to update though!

This from a religiously dedicated, former digital heathen - hilarious!😂

 

I dumped the Ittok for a Wand after one week and never regretted it. 😉

Too many non buyers with attitude posting on here - Pete! 😁

Seriously though it is a little surprising, and a rare opportunity to buy one of these!

After sales support is great and spare parts freely available. 

Happy to keep it if it doesn't sell soon!
