Superb photos, well done

Micro scanner - Genuine article from indicators. The micro-scanner sticker indicates the stylus fitted was a Garrott parabolic micro-scanner, being quite an expensive upgrade over the round or ellipitcal types at the time.

Yes, I thought that micro scanner sticker indicated a possible "Garrotting". Thanks.....

Modified by the late Garrott brothers, as mentioned in @Anthony1's post.:) They were famous for making Decca Gold's sing. Their work was in demand around the hi fi world. You have a winner......until you don't! 

 

GLWTS.

      Item Condition: As New Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: BEVERLY HILLS State: NSW Payment Method: EFT, Cash on Pickup, Paypal with fees on the buyer unless sent as a personal payment Reason for selling: No Longer Used Further information:
      As New Condition.
      Complete with the original box, receipt and warranty.
      Purchased locally from Digital Cinema at 26/06/2020 so the local warranty still have a long validity on them.
      As far as I can tell there is no local store that stocked this speaker as i think the PSB brand is not popular in Australia even though its predecessor the Alpha B1 was popular worldwide and so is this new Alpha P5 .
      So ended up having to do an order in on them, used it for a short time after which I went to a smaller sized speaker.
       
      Supposedly PSB have great synergy with NAD amplifiers since they belong under the same parent company.

      Item Condition: As new Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available. Suburb or Town: Dalkeith State: VIC Payment Method: Cash, EFT, Paypal confirmed Reason for selling: Not using, and want to buy a MV Agusta! Further information: DEQX unit, can act as digital premap too!
       
      I bought 2 of these, with the intention of building a system comprising of 3 main speakers, triamped horn setup for home theatre (and hifi), so I needed 2 DEQX units.
      I experimented with some other speakers (2 channel only) and triamped those with 1 DEQX unit, which I am still using.
       
      The horn setup never got off the ground, so I have an unused DEQX unit available.
      Today was the first time it has ever been turned on, just to verify it works!  It's brand new.
       
      This one was kitted out with the full digital in - digital out capability so you can go as far as having a seperate DAC on each speaker driver if you choose!
      It also has the balanced XLR output if you like to use it's internal dac(s).
      This one does the lot!
       
      If you are looking for an active crossover for an insanely good system; looking to time align drivers; and/or looking for room correction, etc...then this is a great unit.
       
      I am happy to assist in setting up for Perth based purchaser.  I am very familiar with DEQX.

      Item Condition: As described below Shipping Options: Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Bulleen State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Credit cards Reason for selling: latest finds  
      The Corrs – Jupiter Calling
      2017 gatefold 2LP pressing
      NM/NM - BRAND NEW and SEALED.
      The album was primarily recorded live, with minimal overdubbing.
      While working on the album, producer T-Bone Burnett made use of 40 spools of two-inch tape and a Ludwig drum kit for the fullest analog sound.
      It works.

      Item Condition: Mint Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: DALKEITH State: WA Payment Method: Reason for selling: Extra Info: JBL made 4 pairs of these in gloss black as special demo speakers, this is one of those pairs!  There are only 3 other sets in the world!
      They are the Special Edition models, in fantastic condition, lightly used, always with the best amps etc driving them (Goldmund, Krell...)
      These are amazing speakers, I thought I would keep them forever, but circumstances have changed...
      Give me a yell if you would like to see/hear them.
      David.
