  1. Just wondered if Great Plains Audio would sell you the multi-cell section, it may be worth an ask?
  2. I thought I had priced fairly before so hopefully a bargain for someone now!
  3. Still available…a chance to hear some of those classic early jazz albums as intended…
  4. You really should at some point Phil, and this has widely been regarded as the best in its class.... The SUT is pretty essential to get the most out of it, and the ETR Mono was/is better than Hashimoto HM7s (and everything else Ive tried)
  5. Yep it is sold. Thanks for all the interest! (Sorry for the delay in replying Steve; IT at my end)
  6. Purchased from Hugo 15 January 2020 for a Garrard 401 project which unfortunately was never realised. I now I have had a change of direction and so it is for sale. I put it into use this year but it has had very little use I would guess around 250 hours, and is still under warranty (around 5m left) Im looking for offers around SOLD
  7. As part of my change of direction I am reluctantly going to have to sell what I think is the best cartridge I have had the pleasure of owning. If you have never heard a true mono cartridge and heard the front to back layering/rich and natural sound a Miyajima Zero can produce here is a chance to try one at less than half the current costs... Purchase around 6 years ago its had limited use and is still in great condition. Mine is the 0.7mm version which is perfect for the new mono releases recently released. (and fine on the older material too) I also purchased the matching SUT from Hugo around 2 years ago, after hearing one in my system, better than the Miyajima KSW or HM7s that I also owned. Im looking for £900 for the Zero SOLD for the SUT https://flic.kr/p/2mrPwSD
  8. Also for sale my second arm a Thomas Schick 12" in Brass and Chrome. It has some marks from the weight on the arm (pictured) but functionally is perfect. I find this much more flexible than most 12" removable headshell type arms and for me it replaced a FR64S. Ive used it with Transfiguration Asia/SPU/Miyajima various and AN IO cartridges all to good affect. I am looking for SOLD (they are a 4m wait and over £1700 I believe now...) I will also be selling the pod that Steve made for it complete with Ebony top (and FR64S armboard)
  9. Lenco/Bogen B51 complete with upgraded bearing/Idler/tuned motor in a slate plinth. Build details from LH https://www.lencoheaven.net/forum/index.php?topic=6606.0 The arm board is reversible and would allow most 9/12" arms to fit. I am also looking to sell the Ebony Schroeder DIY arm. This was made for MIDAS 103/103r and Ive used with a variant of MC Transfiguration/Miyajima/AN etc... I am looking for SOLD for the TT, and offers around SOLD for the arm. I would sell compete if anyone is interested in the package. I have a number of spares/parts including Motor, idlers, Nigel Speed Controller which I could part with again as part of the package. I also have a number of accessories Tenuto mat, ebony weight etc that I will look to sell once the TT has sold.
  10. I've heard Darren's Tribute SUT with a Hana in his (very nice) system...It is a great match and the Tribute transformers are really good.... I doubt you would get better without spending mega bucks.....
  11. That one was a great deal given the value of the valves! I am running a BP P20 which Simon has reworked with a one off SJS Pre which is a model 2-without the copper lid, and with 6H30pi valves...I can confirm it’s a nice combo....
  12. I would strongly suggest that this is a good deal regardless if it is a 1.0 or 1.5... Simon is a total gent to deal with and will no doubt upgrade as far as you want to go... James is totally trustworthy-deal with confidence...
  13. As per Myles, if he has it in stock you will get it, if not you will wait....and wait....and wait.... You may be able to hassle to get a refund but I bet a lot just give up...
  14. Ive tried a few different valves in the V1, personally like Mullards (M8137)-warmer more 3D or Telefunkens-cooler more detail though a pain to source either of these now as NOS is often not... If you have Hovlands (yellow caps) in it then you've done well as they are impossible to source now and make a very worthwhile improvement. Unless very different from mine/normal I don't think they are big-just normal case sized?
