  1. As the title suggests I have a rather large collection of Alphason Turntables that have been sat in my loft for too many years and it's time they found new homes. My father, Mike Knowles, was the founder of Alphason and when Alphason transitioned from producing tonearms and turntables to producing Hi-Fi furniture in the late 1990's early 2000's they uprooted and moved to new premises. These items were rescued from the storeroom as believe it or not they were earmarked for the skip. Hard to think I know, but they were different times. Over the years I've become a quite a collector of everything "Alphason" as surprisingly we kept very little within the family. But the time has come to let some of my collection go as it hasn't seen the light of day in years. To this end we have for sale 4 Sonata Turntables (2 are Ex demo and 2 are as new and unboxed), a Solo Turnatable as new and an Alphason Adonis power amp. I actually have 2 power amps but I only wish to part with one though I don't mind which. Both are boxed and as new in either oak or black ash. If you are interested in any of the items below and live in the Birmingham area your more than welcome to drop in for a look and a chat. Otherwise I'm quite happy to post. Any questions just ask. The first item is an early Alphason Sonata which was produced for the American market, it has an internal power supply with a two pin plug. Unlike it's UK counterparts the American version only had single motor. The early versions of the Sonata had no speed control and only ran at 33rpm. This Turntable was probably used as a demo version but is in very good condition. The second is a later Alphason Sonata which again was probably a demo turntable. Twin motors, internal power supply with speed control on the front. The turntable comes with a power lead with a European two pin plug but can be power by an external power supply such as the Atlas. ***************** The Demo Black Sonata has provisionally been Sold **************** Third is an Alphason Solo which was a step down from the Sonata but still a great little turntable. This is as new, it comes boxed with a note saying it was returned in exchange for another Solo but in black. Fourth and Fifth are two Sonata's which are boxed ready for transit and have never been opened since they left the factory. The first is the same Gold version pictured above but made for the UK market with twin motors. ***************** The Unboxed Gold Sonata has now been Sold **************** The Second is the same but with a black ash finish. ***************** The Unboxed Black Sonata has provisionally been Sold **************** Additional images of the two Adonis power amps
  2. Bought off eBay for personal use, will go to collect this week. Apparently it runs slow, so I thought possilly because of ageing components in the Atlas power supply. I plan to inspect for burnt components, but likely all will seem normal. Probably worth changing electrolytic capacitors whatever. I hope isn't that one of the two motors is misbehaving Have great, great respect for Mike Knowles, so defo keeping and not swapping Atlas for alternate psu !!! keen to hear others' experience of this issue.... thanks Wam
