Item Condition: very, very good used condition.
Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.
Suburb or Town: Albert Park
State: Victoria
Payment Method: Paypal plus 3%, cash on pickup, EFT once cleared.
Reason for selling: Surprise upgrade

Further information: This is an unexpected sale due to upgrade. I love this turntable and it plays extremely well. I actually thought I would never sell it but it will otherwise go to waste with a new tt on the way.

 

I begin this journey in December 2018 by purchasing an LP12 in excellent condition. This is an early model but the plinth is immaculate. This is what attracted me to it. It came with an as new lid which is still in great condition with on the slightest of dust marks if you look really closely. 

 

As the purchase was primarily for the actual plinth, I looked at mod options and upgrading the tone arm. I then found the details of Edmund in Hong Kong and his Mober brand. Edmund was and still is a real gentleman to deal with. I decided to go with Mober DC Motor LPSU, upgraded Bearing, Upgraded Arm Board (Linn) and the upgraded Sub platter with bearing. At the same time, I changed the springs and grommets.

 

My journey was documented  it this forum:

 

 

As you can see, I also upgraded the tonearm to the latest Linn Akito 3b. This was purchased from Tivoli at a cost of $2900. This arm remains in excellent condition.

 

All up, my costs were approx $7500 but it was worth every cent. 

 

I soon also became pedantic about set up and I purchased a setup table that does do the job and is a hell of a lot easier than my original three chairs method! This cost me $300 plus post from on here.

 

I will post plenty of pics, including the extras for the Linn I will no longer need.

 

To be clear, the following is included:

 

Linn LP12

- original plinth, top plate and baseboard/feet - One of the feet sits flat with the help of some blutak inside as the screw thread was worn (is an easy fix)- works fine as it is flat     and hold but full disclosure!

- Mober motor, bearing, sub platter and arm board

- the lid is aftermarket but excellent fit (it comes off and goes in easy) and great condition

- Linn Akito 3b - current model

- original Linn felt mat in excellent condition

 

Extras

- belt, springs and rubbers as per pics

- 2 bottles of Linn bearing oil purchased from Douglas HIFI

- Cork mat - I used this the most as the Linn mat sometimes sticks to records and I think sounds better

- set up table

 

NOT INCLUDED are the rubber isolation feet and isoacoustic ones in pics (I will use these on something else), kettle cord and my Lyra Delos Cart (being fitted to my new tt).

 

As there is no cart, nor can I demo anyway, I had my first go at a youtube video taken today. As can be seen, the Linn gets to speed quickly and holds it!

 

 

 I hope this link works!

 

Unfortunately this will be pickup only from Albert Park VIC 3206. I will not take the risk of post of something so delicate. 

 

Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I have a heap of pics so will further upload as I am allowed to do so.

 

Cheers,

 

Rod.

Just remember to put 2 chocks under the edge of the inner platter (opposite each other) when the TT is taken away. I use 2 pieces of styrofoam (carefully stored for the occasion) - but 2 matchboxes would do just as well.


This lifts the end of the bearing off the thrust plate at the bottom (preventing damage during transport).

 

And remove the outer platter.

 

GLWTS.

Yes gents, it is very difficult to let go but my wife was hassling me for what a wanted for my 50th last monday. Was hoping just to tour Europe but that died in the butt for obvious reasons. She was getting stroppy so to shut her up I said a Techdas Airforce V - There was a very good deal from Sonic purity for 3 month old demo with Kuzma reference 313 arm, full warranty etc The things we do to keep the peace!

The loose foot can be easily repaired with a toothpick or two and some pva glue.

Absolutely you can do this - I just never got around to it as didn't bother me nor affect anything. As can be seen in the pics, the foot hangs there no problem and when sitting with the weight on it, again no issue. This is a great tip though for any threaded out screw hole though. 👍

      More audio goodies taking up space!
       
      These are in like new condition.  Sorry, I have no specs.  From memory they are around 90 dB sensitivity.
       
      Since they are so cheap, would prefer a local sale as packing things properly takes so much time.
       
      Any questions - please ask.

      This is a Goldring 9 1/2" stereo silicone unipivot tone arm.   Specs are in one of the pics.
      Made in JAPAN, they were rebranded ES-1000 and imported by Encel's in the early '80s.
       
      It is in excellent condition.  It has been used, but there is not a mark on it anywhere.
      It comes in it's original box which is showing it's age, but also includes all original accessories like the grease and silicone oil syringe.
      No original oil, but I can fill the syringe with a very similar synthetic oil that I use in my Audio Verismo if you like. (free of course)
       
      Also included is the original 4 page user manual and importantly - the mounting template.
       
      I acquired it over 20 years ago, but realistically - well, I'm never going to get to use it!  Any inspection welcome.
       
      The manual says the headshell is not removable - but that's incorrect.  Possibly a translation mistake?
      It easily slides out with the removal of the knurled screw, thus mounting your cart is much simpler and safer.
       
      Happy to post for cost, and I pack my stuff so it arrives perfect.
       
      Any questions - just ask.

      Item Condition: Immaculate Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Richmond State: VIC Payment Method: Cash, PayPal Friends, PayID Reason for selling: Upgrade Further information:
      I purchased this SUT brand new from Carlton Audio Visual in late September 2020 to use with my MM phono stage when I purchased a Van Den Hul MC.  
       
      This is a fantastic performing SUT, built like a tank and well isolated. It has 24db gain. I have since upgraded to a new preamp which has an MC phono section so this is no longer required. 
       
      Condition is as brand new with box, manual and remaining warranty.  No scratches or marks. RRP on these is $879. 
       
      Happy to post at buyers cost.
