     No

    Kuzma parts & pieces - IC

    I have two items I may not need anymore so here they are:

    Kuzma Stogi arm, a normal (bearing) version from early 90s. Good condition, light use, everything plays as it should be. Some VdH wires inside as it was sold with.

    Kuzma Stabi S disc, due to an upgrade to a very hi-tech, aftermarket disc.

    Open to reasonable offers - PM me.

    Thanks!

    EDIT: Obviously, when I wrote Stabi S disc, I meant - platter.

    It's a proof of my miserable English. I meant platter. Sorry.

    The Stogi S (fitted as standard to the Stabi S) is a unipivot, the original Stogi tonearm was standard configuration

    An extra platter is a good upgrade to the Stabi S, I have two (in total not two extra!) fitted to mine.

    Thanx Kevin, exactly.

    The arm I have for sale is Stogi, which is a step above Stogi S in the Kuzma's hierarchy.

    Not sure about the UK prices but Stogi S European RRP is around 850 euros, while "normal" Stogi (I have for sale) is somewhere around 1300E new.

    Would be happy with 1/3 of that price.

    As for the platter, I have no idea what to ask, make me an offer if you really want it.

    Note to Kuzma Stabi/ S owners. just peel the platter mat and stick this under your current one for the full 'heavy platter' effect.

    don't get it, did you say that peeling of Kuzma's glued mat off equals having two platters?

    didn't try that but two platters is a significant upgrade and even better is an aftermarket sandwich platter (it's not a kuzma product).

    i'll post the pics later. a dramatic upgrade IMHO.

    back to topic, a few offers for the platter - i'll review them later next week and let you know.

    No, you need to peel off one platter mat to get two Kuzma platters to stack correctly

    Thanks Simon.

    OK - I did a bit more thorough check on the price for Stogi. It's RRP 1200 pounds, would give it for 400 pounds plus shipping from Belgrade (or maybe Frankfurt, I can most likely arrange that and will be cheaper)

    The last offer for it in the UK was asking 575 pounds. http://www.audiosmile.com/forum/arch...p/t-24514.html

    It's this arm:

    TIA.

    I think the Stogi s is cheaper as there is less of it. Is it inferior in terms of sound? Anybody?

    Thanks John, mines is Cardas wired straight through but there's that itch as you've mentioned the scarcity of the Kuzma.

    This is is a for sale thread not a discussion thread, please read the AUP, and don't crap on someone's classified ad.

    I think a few of us got somewhat distracted here, apologies anu for it turning it into discussion on your classified. Good luck with the sale I'm sure these will go for you.

    No I wasn't distracted at all, read the AUP, there is nothing wrong with positive comments on a classified thread

    Inbox emptied, sorry about inconvenience.

    As to Alphason vs Stogi, I also wouldn't bother unless plenty of time & money. I assume it's pretty much similar level of SQ but certainly they can't sound the same - but no one can tell without trying. I have no experience with Alphason though.
