FS: Audiolab 8000Q pre amp

Recommended Posts

Item: Audiolab 8000Q pre amp
Location: Melbourne
Price: $450
Item Condition: as new
Reason for selling: upgraded
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank deposit

For sale is an Audiolab 8000Q pre amp in first class condition. This would suit a new buyer, it is in such good condition, and the remote still has the protective cellophane. Soundwise the bass is full and solid, the mids are rich and detailed and the highs very smooth - its musically very satisfying. 

Comes with everything - original box, complete packaging, remote control, manual and power cable.

I'm not aware there were different models. On the machine it has the Huntingdon address but nothing specifically saying 'made in England' or China for that matter. Its pretty heavy and very solid.

 

Does anyone have any clues why I'm getting a server error when I try to upload pics?

Marc has just said in another thread that there is a server error or something like that and that he's on it.

Regarding the age, I don't know the date of manufacture (it doesn't appear on the case). I bought it a few months ago as brand new old stock. That's all I can tell you.

According to this link http://theartofsound.net/forum/archive/index.php/t-24442.html you can tell the country of manuf from the serial no.  Serial A-F is UK made, pre TAG, G or higher, TAG-made. I have one of the earlier ones and love it partnered with the 8000P. P GLWTS

There is a G in the middle of the serial number so I guess its TAG made.

Its still a fine pre amp and I think no real difference from the 8200. And its a great price for an as-new pre amp.

      I've just acquired a JH turntable for free and could use a steer on getting it sorted and running. The owner bought it new in 1974. Does anyone have any idea what model this is? (obviously google hasn't helped with finding manual).   
       
      Keen on getting it going. The owner (my neighbour) is non-techie but he said they'd taken it to Carlton AV here in Melbourne, and they said there was an issue with the wiring in the tonearm. Advice was the cost to fix was too high for the unit.  
       
      I've plugged it in and run it through my amp; sounds fine although I had to manually rotate the disc. I'd like to get a manual or something with detail on the internals to see if I can get it living again. 
       
      Some questions for the forum (obviously I've googled first with not a great deal of luck on this specific machine):
       
      I need to replace the belt but not sure what the correct size is - any suggestions? The existing belt is really overstretched so I can't use that as a gauge. 
        I don't get how the 33/45 speed change works. Looks like you pull the spindle up to change speeds, I'm assuming it's moving the belt on to a smaller pulley. Would be great to see an image of how it's meant to look set up correctly so I can sort it once I replace the belt. Here's a vid: https://imgur.com/ivZxmGI
        The tone arm lever appears to be out of whack, again any suggestions on how it should sit? At the moment the arm seems to be coming up under the left side and I can't rotate it around without breaking it. 
        I'm assuming a new cartridge is in order, but can't find a source for info on what is compatible with that tone arm.  
      Would appreciate any steers to online info (not expecting the forum to do everything for me, but I'm a turntable newbie with 'beginners' electronics skills). 
       
      cheers, pics below.

      Item: NAD 1155 Pre & 2200 Power Amp (WITHDRAWN)
      Location: Adelaide
      Price: $600 ONO
      Item Condition: Great 
      Reason for selling: No longer required
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Great package for a vinyl or digital setup, the NAD 1155 Stereo Preamp unit sounds great and has a wonderful phono section. If you're looking for an inexpensive entry into higher-end vinyl performance, this classic little preamp is for you, it has both Moving Magnet and Moving Coil phono stage with adjustable capacitance.
       
      The NAD 2200 power amp is conservatively rated at 100w per channel into 8Ω (stereo), 400W into 8Ω (mono) and and the ability to drive low-impedance speaker loads without difficulty. This amp has heaps of power and has fantastic dynamic headroom with a clean neutral sound and all the power you need when you decide to crank it up. 
       
      Both units are in great condition with some very minor surface scratches on the edges, see pictures. Both units have been serviced recently.
