Further information:

 

Several SNA forum members have kindly informed me that this is one of the early "flush strobe" 401's, with a stronger die-cast chassis (as opposed to the later, pressed ones). 

Thanks to all of the guys that have unconditionally offered me some great advice, gained through a shared passion and many years of experience.

 

I've put as many photos as I could into a folder on Google Drive (link is below).

 

  • Condition as per photos. Some marks to the plinth 
  • Comes with its' original Garrard instruction manual
  • Video shows playing at 33rpm
  • Mat now broken, as it was brittle and it snapped when I removed it
  • SME tonearm comes with original manuals, template manual, and warranty card (serial number 62527). Marks in the earlier photos are just general grubbiness, and came off with a light rub with ISO-propyl alcohol
  • Shure cartridge (M95ED) fitted to SME headshell
  • Been in (dry and cool) storage for 15 years.
  • LINK TO GOOGLE DRIVE FOLDER: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1jhfAc5wyx0iUfI-R3VbbI5ThFwyYxwUC?usp=sharing 

 

Additional to the above, I'm including all of the following:

 

  • Extra SME headshell with Shure M95ED cartridge 
  • Lightweight headshell with MA 2002-e cartridge (no stylus), with original Micro-Acoustics manual
  • Shure M91ED cartridge
  • Shure M75E Type 2 cartridge

Plenty of photos in the Google Drive link. Here's a few to whet the appetite... (attached)

Is the turntable playing well, stable speed, everything working as it should please?

 

Hi mate,

There's a video in the Google Drive folder showing it playing at 33rpm.

I'll send you a PM so that you can ask me any specific questions which I'll do my level best to answer :)

Cheers,

Rich

      This is a catch and release,  I love the watch but it looks a little too "dressy" for my tastes . Also, it's a little small for me (38.5mm case size) I prefer watches 42 to 44mm. I am second owner.

      Movement is Calibre L619 (ETA 2892/A2) and the watch keeps excellent time. The power reserve is rated at 42 hours, and it achieves this.

      It's in fabulous condition, barely a mark/swirl on it and the Sapphire crystal is unblemished. Number 139 of 2000 IIRC, released back around 2010. The hands have a beautiful blue tinge when they catch the light.


      Now sporting a new Bas & Lokes 19mm Olive Green Nato strap, worth US $95.00.


      Will ship registered, insured and express at my cost within Australia.


      Included are 2 other leather straps. No box or paperwork included other than the valuation.


      There is one for sale on watchuseek at the moment for US $1850


      Pick up available in Brisbane

      "A superbly made product that produces superb sound" - Michael Fremer, Stereophile

      Stereophile Class A Recommended Component
       
      Current model - rrp  $7990 The manual, alternative impedance cards and extra high quality resistors are included. Use the preselected impedance jumpers or make your own custom jumpers with supplied cards and resistors.  
      Review:
      "The Audia Flight Phono combined pitch-black backgrounds and world-class dynamic presentation with a clean, ultrafast top end and a taut, well-extended bottom end." Stereophile Class A Recommended Component

      "...nothing but sonic pleasure... the Flight Phono produced music out of what subjectively sounded like an even blacker backdrop, and probably partly because of that, its soundstage presentation was among the most transparent, deep, and three-dimensional I've heard from any phono stage."
      MF - Stereophile

      A separate power supply, dedicated input preamplifier boards, high gain (74dB maximum) and low noise are only a few of its characteristics.

      The separate power supply was chosen to improve the shield of the preamp and to reduce the vibrations and resonance from the transformers to zero.
       
      Power supply
      The Audia Flight Phono Preamp's power supply is separate from the preamp chassis. A 50VA toroidal transformer supplies the analogue stages. On it is placed the first power supply (+/- 38V).
      Inside the separate power supply there is a 15VA toroidal transformer as well, to supply the relays and logic control. Previous user selections are stored in memory. To receive the commands from the pushbutton of the preamp chassis without electrical connections, several opto-isolators are used.

      There is also a low noise MOSFET power supply (+/-28V) on the preamp chassis for the second gain stage and another power supply for the first gain stage (+/- 15V). Thus, there are six power supplies in total!
       
      Preamp
      The Audia Flight Phono Preamp is based on Audia Flight's current feedback philosophy. The MC and MM input preamp boards are different, because MC and MM cartridges have different electrical characteristics. The MC preamp board is a transistor input preamp with 64 dB of gain. The MM preamp board is a differential transistor input stage with 40dB of gain. Both have low noise and low offset output. On both input boards, the impedance selectors are close to the input stage and are made by professional gold jumpers. Custom resistors can also be used for precise cartridge matching from the rear panel.

      After the first gain stage is the input selector, which is made with gold contact relays. Following this is the RIAA filter in passive configuration. It is made with 1% polypropylene and polystyrene capacitors. In this position, it's possible to select a subsonic IEC filter as well.

      The second gain output stage, which is completely redesigned, has improved speed and signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio. The second gain stage is switchable from 24 dB to 34 dB and has a balanced XLR output.

      A mono selector is an important element in achieving the best sound while using a stereo cartridge to play a mono record. The Audia Flight Preamp's mono selector sums the left and right channels together in the same manner as a mono cartridge would, which provides improved sonic performance.

      The Preamp board features DC offset protection; if there is an offset voltage, this feature will protect the unit and all others connected to it.
       
      Information:
      Gain MC 64 dB + 10 dB (74 dB in total) / MM 44 dB + 10 dB (54 dB in total) Frequency response (1Wrsm, -3db) 5Hz - 120 KHz THD <0.05% S/N ratio >90dB “A” weighted RIAA accuracy +/- 0.1 dB Channel Unbalance <0.04 dB Stereo separation >95 dB @ 10 KHzMC input impedance from 7 ohm to 980 ohm in eight steps plus a custom resistor value MM input impedance from 47pF to 600 pF in twelve steps plus a custom capacitor value Output impedance All outputs 500 ohm Phase Non inverted Maximum consumption 65WDimensions and weight 420x92x330mm (WxHxD), 10.5 Kg Original Box not included

      Message me with any questions, purchased locally from Sydney HiFi dealer, comes supplied with original packaging, remote, power cord and user manual. Designed and Manufactured in the USA.
       
      This is roon tested, works perfectly with all digital sources upto 24/192, also has a 24/96 usb input, true analogue input that can be set as a handy HT bypass to allow seamless integration with Home theatre receivers for better 2ch music, comes equiped with optical Tos link, 2x coax digital inputs, AES xlr style digital input and usb and analogue input.
       
      Both balanced and unbalanced output for connection to power amp or high end pre-amp, the DAC 2.5 can be set for fixed or variable output.
       
      The current Bel canto DAC 2.7 is near identical other than the usb input higher 24/192 bit rate but retails for over $4000.
       
      Pickup available, otherwise can ship at buyers cost probably $30 to $40.
