Further information:

 

People that are familiar with Micro Seiki would know the outstanding capability and build quality of these Japanese turntables and tonearms - even their mid to low range products.

 

They would also know how rare they now are in Australia.

 

Comes equipped with a Sure M91ED (MM) cartridge and the top of the range Jico (SAS) stylus.

The stylus is currently listed for $325 AUD (250 USD) on the Jico website.

 

Spare belt included.

 

One of the shock absorbing feet is detached from the base. 

I had been using it just placed underneath the deck with no issue, but it could be repaired for a relatively low cost.

 

Australian voltage - no step up transformer required.
 

The cover is not original, and the hinges are not attached. 

This is how l had purchased it.

Thank you.

It was originally listed it for $550.

Hoping it will go to a good home at this price.

 

The SAS stylus made a significant improvement to the sound. 

 

I'm only selling it because l came across another Micro Seiki higher up the model line.

      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.
