  1. Henley Audio unfortunately need to report that on a recent shipment into the UK, a quantity of Pro-Ject Audio Systems turntables were stolen in a night-time breach of a shipping trailer. Link here for further info and serial numbers Mods, please move or leave as you see fit. Cheers.
  2. Bought a Thakker belt for an LP12 and it was of a high quality and worked perfectly. I was not going to pay £50 for a Linn one. Buy with confidence. You can buy them direct from Thakker here; LINK.
  3. The original Technics SL-120 (or SL-1200 the same deck) was designed for home use, not sure about the others. History of Technics turntables timeline here.
  4. I hope you noticed that the midranges will need new foam surrounds.
  5. I have a nice Technics SL120 with a Rega RB300 arm, no cartridge unfortunately. It was serviced last year and is in a nice condition. I'd be looking for £300. Ayrshire is not far away. If this interests you please PM me. If not, good luck with your search.
  6. I am out of touch when it comes to DACs at that price point (< £100ish) so I can't comment as to their sound/features etc. A nice pair of Ditton 44s might cost anything between £250-£450, Ditton 33s considerably cheaper. What's your total budget ?
  7. If you are increasingly listening to FLAC files then I wouldn't right off your own initial thoughts re replacing it. What is your entry level DAC? If you go down the Celestion speakers route be sure that they will only reproduce what you feed them, garbage in, garbage out so to say.
  8. Rega P3 with a half decent budget cartridge and a cheap Project phono amp should get you started. If you can stretch a little more, a Systemdek 2X would do the job as well. Good luck.
  9. That's a very kind offer re the ferrofluid, if I do go down that route I will pm you, thanks. I will test them before making any decisions but can't start the project for a month or so. In the meantime I'll get the parts, so looking forward to it. If I face any difficulties, nice to know there's help at hand. Cheers.
  10. Thanks Tony I may take you up on that. I picked them up today and they are in a really nice condition and despite the one internal bass unit with surround and donut rot, they sounded pretty good. My plan is to replace the donuts and surrounds on the 4 internal bass units, then re-do the tweeters with new ferrofluid. The crossovers I will leave alone unless I come across any issues. A nice wee project over Xmas I think.
  11. Managed to eventually get them.
  12. I have tried to buy these but the listing has been set to take an immediate payment but the seller only wants cash on collection, no paypal.
  13. Your speakers are letting the system down. For £800 second hand you could get so much better. I have owned a pair B&W 602 s2 and they are ok (for the price) but your amp and streamer deserve better. Ebay has loads to choose from currently. Good luck.
  14. Like John (big) my J A Michell Transcriptors Hydraulic Reference is here to stay. It is a work of art that I am sure will only appreciate in value.
