  1. Sure, I can do that for any interested buyer. I have never opened the unit for casual shots yet.
  2. Hi, Looking for a Conrad Johnson TEA1 or TEA2Max phonostage. If you have for sale, please contact me
  3. Yes it is the regular Liveline that I am selling at gbp 330. The blue sleeves are no more used by Frank Tchang. He has shifted to black since quite a few didn’t like the blue sleeves. Mine uses US type plugs. It is 1.8 meters Long.
  4. Hi, For sale is one of the most exotic phonostages in the world. The Walker Audio Reference Second Edition phonostage is considered to be the best phonostage in the world by many reviewers. It is the personal reference phonostage of Jonathan Valin of Absolute Sound. I have personally compared it with FM Acoustics and Audio Note M8 phonostages. The Walker made them sound like second class equipments. It is an ultra quiet and very high resolution phonostage IMO. Super short signal path. Just one single gain stage which can be adjusted from 45db to 70db. Dual mono power supply with 2 power cords inputs. Dual-mono phonostage module with complete point to point wiring made from medical grade wiring chosen by Llyod Walker. It doesn't get any more purist than this. Here is a review where the author compares it to Lamm LP2: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/walker4/sota_8.html https://www.audioasylum.com/reviews/Phono-Preamp/Walker-Audio/Walker-Reference-Phono-Amp/vinyl/159278.html The new retail used to be $25k. I am asking GBP 7.5k. I will ship worldwide and accept paypal (add 4%). Here are some pictures:
  5. Hi, I am selling a highly upgraded Loricraft restored Garrard 301 (oil bearing) turntable along with a special tonearm. This turntable has gone through complete strip down restoration. Here are the details: 1. The motor has been restored with NOS parts from the original Garrard motor. These spare parts are only available with Loricraft. As per their assessment, my motor is as good as NOS. 2. Platter has been refinished to make it absolutely true and even (see picture) 3. The main bearing has been reworked to improve the tolerance to a much higher level. As per Loricraft it is quieter than a NOS grease bearing. It is the same job they do for their 501 models. 4. All new springs, linkages, grommets and bushings as per NOS Garrard standards. Additionally, there are some very important mods: 1. Kokomo Mk2 bearing upgrade 2. Audio Silente idler wheel 3. Woodsong Audio brake wheel 4. Western electric power cord 5. Funkfirm Achromat platter mat The plinth was specially imported from Russia and is made of multiple layers of baltic birch ply. Tonearm: This is a magnetic bearing tonearm (like Schroeder). It replaced my SME M2-12. A very quiet, neutral and accurate sounding tonearm. For more info, please contact me as it is not a commercial product. Asking GBP 3500 with tonearm. If you do not want the tonearm then let me know, we can work it out. I will ship worldwide and accept Paypal.
  6. Bump..a terrific phonostage. At least it bettered my superline + supercap combo.
  7. No, it is for 110 to 120 volts. So you would need a Step down transformer of 150-200 watt capacity (as per Dobbins specification)
  8. Thanks guys. I have owned the regular Sp-10 Mk2, 1200G and now this Mk3. Yes, Mk3 is suppose to be more dynamic and resolved but the main difference with this implementation is the utter clarity, neutrality (without losing the harmonics) and the disappearing act. The plinth and TT integration is like one heavy monolithic rock. It gives amazing stability to the sound. I dont think there is a shortcut to it.
  9. Selling my First watt F6 amplifier. Built by Nelson Pass factory (not a DIY build). F6 is the best First Watt push-pull amplifier ever built! 25 watts into 8 ohms 50 watts into 4 ohms Just 2 gain stages for a no non-sense super fast and refined amplification. It will drive any speakers from 89db and above with ease. In my system the F7 and XA30.8 sounded boring in comparison to the F6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdw7esZBbXE https://newrecordday.com/first-watt-f6-power-amplifier/ Asking GBP 1700. Will ship worldwide and accept paypal. Item is at Singapore
  10. Selling an Audiospecials Phonolab 1.0 phonostage. It is a 2 box dual mono phonostage, made in Germany. It has both MM and MC inputs via separate circuits. The MM supports 4 gain choices 38db, 42db, 45db and 48db. The MC input supports 4 gains choices 58db, 62db, 65db and 68db (Refer to the images for complete list of loading and gain options). It comes with a very special Recompizer circuit which is similar to various EQ curves but it can do more than that especially while dealing with cartridges which are difficult to tame. Mine includes both RCA and XLR outputs. The PSU is quite special as it has the ability to support another phonostage module if you want to use 4 tonearms feeding 4 independent phonostages. All in all, a very sophisticated top level design from Germany. The features list: - MM and MC inputs - gain and input-loading switchable independent for each input. - unbalanced and transformer-coupled balanced outputs - `Recompizer´, stepless control means to improve non-optimal recorded discs. - external Power supply, capable to supply for two Phonolabs at the same Here are some details: https://www.audiospecials.de/en/index.html https://www.fidelity-magazin.de/2018/04/29/fidelity-award-winner-2018-audiospecials-phonolab/ https://www.audionirvana.org/forum/the-audio-vault/analog-playback/phonostages/87673-great-phono-preamp https://www.audionirvana.org/forum/the-audio-vault/analog-playback/phonostages/87673-great-phono-preamp/page2 Comes with original flight case.

  11. Why do you think so ? Which amps do you suggest ?
  12. I have heard many Accuphase amps. I dont like their signature. They sound muddy and a bit slow.
  13. I am actually also considering Naim Supernait 2. But it is my last choice after the quads.
  14. Where will a Quad Elite QMP monoblocks stand in this company ?
  15. Thanks. This is exactly why I have listed 3 different amps from Quad. I have myself tried the Turnberry with a 10 watt Wavac EC-300b (exotic sound but ultimately lacked power when you go loud), a 18 watt Audio Note Conquest SS (more power so more stable into higher volumes, less magic though, ultimately still not enough power and crunch for Michael JAckson). These were SETs, very musically coherent but power and dynamics not enough. I have heard from people that Tannoy needs push-pull amps for a stable and confident sound at high volumes so now I am choosing among push-pulls. I have tried a few SS amps (ATC integrated, Pass XA 30.8, Naim XS). They all did a fine job of driving the speakers but they sounded grayish. I believe Quad SS amps are harmonically not bleached so I am still considering them. I dont intend to blast at 110db but still a solid 100db performance with Michael Jackson type of music should be happily performed. I dont listen to MJ a lot but I keep it as a reference for punch and dynamics. So will the Quad II forty do it ? I want to keep it Quad else there are other options like the Rogue Stereo 100
  16. Thanks guys. Where does that leave the quad qmp elite ?
  17. Hello folks, I am thinking of getting a Quad amplifier for my Tannoy Turnberry SE speakers. I am choosing between: 1. Quad II forty 2. Quad II Eighty 3. Quad Elite QMP My room size is approximately 200 sqft and I listen to all kinds of music (except electronica, hip-hop). My preamp is Linear Tube Audio (Berning) Micro ZOTL-2. Has anyone heard these amps to give me some first hand inputs ?
