  1. Good condition. I used it plain side up for cleaner aesthetics. RRP £76+shipping, seeking £40 including UK shipping.
  2. My Dual CS 505-1 belt-drive turntable, owned from new (c. mid-1980s) and not used for about 25+ years - stored in loft. It’s in excellent condition given its age, no damage - Perspex lid has some scuff marks but functions as it should. Mechanically it is in perfect working order. I fitted an Audio-Technica cartridge which was supposed to be superior to the supplied Ortofon one. Original packaging intact. Would maybe make a decent starter turntable, maybe even getting near to qualifying for vintage? Asking £120 + delivery.

  5. Looking to buy puresound tenuto or micro seiki copper platter.
  6. Selling my beautiful one off plinth for Garrard 301 motor unit. It was made to take 12 inch arms. I was using it with AO PU7 (Rega mount). Blank arm board will be included too. Please note that acrylic cover is made properly in the factory and not glued in some garage. Included is plinth, matching platform and acrylic cover. Metal feet is not included, but could be discussed with the buyer. There are 5 M6 inserts underneath allowing to use 3 or 4 feet setup. Plinth is made from plywood layers with oak lamella surround. It is finished using Japanese Shou Sugi Ban technique and looks simply stunning. Want £275 for the package and that's a total bargain. Collection from Woolwich Arsenal or wam taxi can be arranged. Will not pack and ship, sorry. More pictures can be emailed.
  7. My Michell Gyro SE turntable with armboards for SME and Rega tonearms for sale. Unicover, clamp and PSU included. Latest DC motor. No tonearm.

  8. Hello Here is for sale my beloved Acoustic Solid Wood Turntable, Great condition, was left for me by my father. Comes with REGA OEM RB303 tonearm, and I can add plexi glass, but only on collection, wouldn't post it, its fragile, and will not survive shipping. Everything works as it should. No problems with motor or controller. All cables intact. Leather mat and plexi mat included. Original Box also included. Also to be noted, since its a German table it comes with European plug, I will include extension for UK plug. Location : Glasgow, Scotland. I know I'm a brand new member of this forum, but I will try and assure whoever will be collecting this turntable that I am a trustworthy person, I can invite you to my work place where I can show you turntable, its already boxed, but if you wish to see it in action, I will show it. I've added new photos with tonearm this time, If you want to see them in high resolution and more photo available at request. All manuals, and tonearm alignment included, plus bearing oil belts and strings, allen keys and tonearm mounting ring. Price with Tonearm £2.000 or nearest offer will be considered, I can ship it as well.
  9. Is anyone in or around London looking to buy a Rega P3 (2016 model) any time soon? I'd like to upgrade to a P8/Apheta or RP10/Apheta soon. The turntable is white, in excellent condition (usual minor polish marks on dustcover), with packaging, and can either be supplied; - stock with Elys 2 cart - £500 or - with Exact/Neo PSU/Tangospinner zirconia subplatter upgrades - £700 or - with Ania/Neo PSU/Tangospinner zirconia subplatter upgrades - £800 Let me know if you're interested, I have now updated listing with pics and prices. My preference is to sell with the upgrades. I could get more listing them individually on the ‘bay, but want to keep things simple! I’ll throw in the Elys as a backup if you go for one of the other carts. Collection from East London, can be demoed, or boxed up and ready to go. Thanks for looking!
  10. Looking for some advice from anyone who's heard both - hopefully there's someone out there! I'm planning to upgrade my TT next month and had convinced myself to skip my original plan of buying the P8/Apheta 3 package and going for the P10/Apheta 3 to avoid any future upgrade temptations. I've now got the option of buying an older RP10 with the Aphelion (1) cartridge, for pretty much the some price as the newer model with the lesser cart (but still better than my current P3/Ania). What would you do?! My assumption will be that the Aphelion will elevate the older package to being better - it should, as that was a very expensive cart. But perhaps the newer turntable will close that gap up a bit, as it's supposed to be quite the jump from the RP model. Also wondering if the Apheta 3 would be more forgiving with not-so-great vinyl - more than half my collection is battered 80s-90s fare. Sadly it won't be possible to demo against each other. I've never heard the RP10, but I have heard the newer P10 against the P8. Both phenomenal tables - the 8 probably the better value given the cost difference, but the 10 a further improvement in sound if you don't mind the premium.
  11. Rega RP6 (Red) and TTPSU - Boxed. A wonderful turntable in excellent condition but sadly not getting much use at the moment. No cartridge. pics -->> https://photos.app.goo.gl/j1FqEwyfWuFmBvQM8 £650 posted. I can either post or you can collect (Southport) but you cannot demo due to Covid.
  12. Hi. I'm selling a Rega Planar 1 with only an hour on the table. Condition is like new and fully boxed. This is the latest version of the Planar 1 from Rega. Bought new only a month ago. Comes with Rega Carbon MM. Looking for £225 pickup from Southport. Pics --> https://photos.app.goo.gl/ywgfkrn6VSznLhKH6
  13. Fully realize that this has nearly five days to run but as it is a collect only option then this will deter many from bidding so there is a strong chance this could be a very good bargain for anyone who is looking to start on the Vinyl ladder . STD 305M is unusual in that it is a four point suspension design rather than the usual three point for Linn, PT , Ariston etc . I owned the plastic STD 305 version of this with a Mission 774 arm mounted and it was at the time for me much better than the Linn Sondek (with basic arm) that I auditioned it against. With a good service and clean and general tidy up this would be in my view a first class turntable well above most of the current mid level units which woulld be far more than this would cost . To get real improvement consider a £600/700 outlay. Plus it will sound decent straight out of the box once set up but will give much better quality with a new arm when you can afford one . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Strathclyde-STD-305M-Vintage-Record-Vinyl-Deck-Player-Turntable/203203131039?hash=item2f4fd9b69f:g:bTEAAOSwyKNfxODO
  14. As per 2 channel thread, looking for a nice, used TT - the more complete the better as a newcomer to the vinyl and analogue world - not ready for a project! I hear good things about Ariston RD80 or RD11, Thorens TD160, Rega 3 or anything of similar vintage and quality. Cosmetic appearance not a concern.... sound quality and not having to do much work to it much higher priority. Budget around £300, a bit more for something nice. Located in central Scotland, happy to pay and arrange insured courier. Cheers
  15. Going to delve into the world of analogue as a wee experiment. Any recommendations for used turntable around £2-300 ish? Not worried about cosmetics, good sound quality the only factor and looking at used kit for better value. I have a nice Vincent hybrid amp and Quad ESL63 speakers but amp has no phono stage, so need that too - at hopefully not too much additional cost.
  16. sold Goldring Lenco GL88 / G88 Turntable, no tonearm. Selling for a friend Wonderful ! Motor serviced, new mains wiring. Speeds adjusted and are all spot on (videos available). New idler wheel as the original was noisy, but will include the original in the package. Main bearing cleaned and relubricated, very quiet. Platter in good condition, 3.6kg, great for speed stability. New 0.1uF 400v switch suppressor capacitor fitted. Original black rubber mat included but not shown in photos. Very clean unit, a few minor paint flecks esp on screwholes. On/Off lettering is slightly faded but could be repainted easily enough. There *is* a plinth/lid but frankly, it's rubbish ! I will include it free as it provides some additional protection during shipping. I will also provide one of my 5.5mm PEEK bearing mod kits (see my Traders advert) free of charge for the buyer to fit, or on request I will fit it before shipping (see last photo). This is a beautiful turntable with a well deserved reputation as being equal to or better than a Garrard 301 or 401. (Last one on ebay sold as "not working" for £382) Specs: Motor: 4-pole constant velocity motor. Speed control: continuously variable. Speeds: four click-stop speeds, 16/33/45/78 rpm. Bearing: centre spindle is lapped, hardened steel in a sintered bronze bearing Wow and flutter: maximum 0.2%. Rumble and hum: negligible Speed variation: less than 1% for 13% mains voltage. Dimensions: 36cm x 33cm inches. Platter diameter: 30cm Platter mass : 3.6kg. £495 plus shipping or buyer collects NN3 Northampton - open to sensible offers !!! Videos taken of the TT working at 33/45/78 rpm. Come and have a look. Advertised elsewhere.
  17. I know that this will rise before the finish but it may stay low due to it being collection only . Really good turntable with a very transparent and solid sound . The use of the fluid damping trough will make this cheapo arm sound excellent . Goldring cartridge is decent though not easy to see what state the needle is in . https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Townshend-Rock-2-Turntable/174424547114?hash=item289c835f2a:g:RikAAOSwO7NfVK8S
  18. Nottingham Analogue Interspace turntable with SME 3009 Series 2 Improved tonearm for sale. After deciding to get out of vinyl game and selling my Garrard 401 setup I bought this one to play my remaining records occasionally. Turntable is in pretty much immaculate condition. It takes 2 arms. It is setup for 1 SME arm at the moment. Comes with sme 3009 Series ii improved arm with non removable headshell. It also has optional SME fluid damping kit fitted. Detachable tonearm cable connector is old type 5 pin block and has a crack on it (still fully functional) and cartridge connectors on the headshell would need to be soldered back. Want £600 for this great looking and sounding turntable. Collection from Woolwich Arsenal only.
  19. Technics SL-1700 direct drive turntable fully restored and upgraded As per the title - see the photos Rare and an interesting piece - slightly less disco looking. These tend to sell for £250 to £350 in original and old form. Arm board upgrades do not fit as in SL-1200’s. •Every capacitor replaced and upgraded - all Nichicon expect for the axial cap which is now a BC. Not in the sonic path but good for many more decades now. •Fully cleaned - everywhere •Power cable replaced and upgraded - now screened •Output cables upgraded to Van Damme XKE •RCA plugs upgraded to KLE Silver Harmony types •Every surface dampened a little to weight out and change the material dynamics to remove resonance •Under arm dampened (as above) •Arm return tuned correctly as well as the arm rest •ISO Kinetic oil top up •All pots cleaned and work superb and smooth(4) •Keeps spot on timing •No issues Comes with a head shell and National Panasonic 270C cartridge. Works but can’t age it. These sell for about £75 alone. Original cover is included but very damaged - will keep dust off but looks very nasty. The hinges are fine for a replacement. Comes with the universal cover as seen in the photos. Negative - one of the feet is a little damaged. Can only be seen on inspection and does not hinder performance. Spares come up on the Bay time to time or you may venture into something different. Feet style is not like the SL-1200 and therefore such upgrades won’t fit. Collection way preferred. • £390 collected.
  20. Hi All, New to the forum and owner of a Sondek LP12 turntable. I assume the version I have may be from 80's-early 90's as it is equipped with the Ittok tone arm, but since I am a newbie to Linn products I may be incorrect about info. I was hoping to get some suggestions on Carts/Stylus that would match up with well with the Ittok LVll tonearm. I have a number of preamps with Phono stages and also thinking of buying a separate Phono that may work with both MC and MM carts. I have read the tonearm works best with low output MC Carts. Currently, I have a McIntosh C20/ Maratnz 7T/ recapped/restored Dynaco PAS2. receivers=Maratnz 2270/2325. The jury is still out on a phono stage to buy. Quick note-I believe the TT currently has a Grado Cart on it..
  21. Having just had my Croft amplification upgraded by Glenn Croft, I’m now considering a turntable upgrade but I’m having trouble working out exactly what to do. In terms of usage, I probably play as many singles as albums, and I enjoy playing DJ when we have friends around. (I can keep the music going nicely using my turntable, my Rega Saturn CD player and my Bluesound Vault 2.) So, for me, it won’t be a case of just popping on an album and sitting down to listen. It’s equally likely that I’ll be comparing different pressings of a single or flipping from one single to another in rapid succession as the next thing to listen to pops into my mind. I also have a fairly large collection of soul and dance music, so good boogie factor is important. I currently have a Thorens TD166 BC with a Rega RB250 arm and a Goldring G1042 cartridge. I’m going to stay with MM because my recently-upgraded Croft Micro 25 has an excellent MM phono stage. I’m also slightly nervous as to whether or not MC would really suit a guy who listens to lots of old mono and stereo 60s and 70s singles rather than to, for instance, lots of rock and classical LPs. My budget is around £2K. My local dealer has suggested that I should audition a Nottingham Analogue Ace Spacedeck and a Michell Gyrodec SE and that I could initially install my existing arm and cartridge on the winner in order to manage my budget. (For audition, these two decks would be set up with a similar arm/cart combination.) Others have suggested a Technics deck such as the SL1200 GR. Others have suggested a new power supply for my Thorens plus a rewired arm and a new cartridge. I’ve recently pondered going for a used Thorens TD160 since it’s the “better big brother” of my TD166. Today on another forum, amongst other questions, I asked the following: - What would rewiring my RB250 give me? What MM cartridge would significantly improve upon my G1042? Suppose that, instead of replacing the Thorens, I replaced the power supply (perhaps with one with electronic speed control), got the arm rewired and replaced the G1042 with an Audio Note IQ2 or IQ3? Would this yield more benefit than a Michell Gyro SE or a Nottingham Analogue Ace Spacedeck with my current standard RB250 and G1042? Suppose I purchased a good used TD160 and moved my arm and cart onto it? Suppose I then then tweaked the TD160 instead of tweaking the TD166? I could go on and on and finally make my decision as they lay me in my box, so any input from fellow Wammers to help me to decide more quickly would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Voyd Turntable in Rosewood and black. Fitted with the Reference Bearing and with a choice of platters. Mechanically and electronically in excellent condition. This is probably one of the last genuine Guy Adams Voyds before Audionote turned it into the TT3. It will come with two belts, tools and a felt cover. There are some dents in the plinth and a mark on the acrylic platter (photos). The lid is pretty much perfect. The price includes for the acrylic platter only. The polycarbonate (Lexan) platters are available at the prices shown and are a useful upgrade in terms of transparency and resolution for any Voyd. The armboard is suited to Rega and the Audionote series of arms. I am based in Farnham, Surrey. I am happy to discuss delivery and set-up if required. Turntable with acrylic platter £1200 ono Tatty Lexan Platter £175 ono Perfect Lexan Platter £250 ono
  23. I bought this brand new from Cymbiosis when they were still based in the centre of Leicester, probably around its launch in, I think, 2000. A fabulous deck offering silly value for money then and now. I've never played a huge amount of vinyl due to the "faff" (that should cause a few wammers to splutter coffee all over their computer screens) vs CD but have always refused to be without a turntable for the sonics and sheer ceremony of it. It's in excellent condition apart from some rubs to the lid most of which should polish I have mostly polished out and I'll try to do that before re-photographing. I lent it to a friend for the last twelve months... she cossetted it in situ but it did pick up the marks on the lid from being transported to and from her place (at my place it always lived in a converted HMV cabinet with its integral lid so the Rega lid was as new when loaned). It's also unlikely her old record collection has seen a "proper" record cleaner so while the table runs smooth and sounds fine (to me) I can't vouch for the condition of the cart. Different cart arrives soon courtesy of wammer. Collection only though, as ever, by arrangement I can drop in a diamond shaped territory between Melton Mowbray and Kendal and taking in Birmingham, Stoke, Manchester, Preston in the west and Sheffield, York, Bradford, Leeds, Harrogate in the east. Happy with cash on collection but I'm looking for a firm sale not an audition... £275.00 please. EDIT: photos show wrong cartridge: fitted is an Ortofon 510 Mk2 as per thread title. ________________________________ Borrowed blurb For over twenty years the Rega P3 has been the favourite high performance turntable for the music loving public, having a beguiling blend of classically clean looks, high performance and amazing value for money. This latest version carries some new innovative changes in design, which make it without doubt the highest performance and musical P3 to date. Just some of the features include an ultra low mass micro-fibre plinth laminated with highly rigid phenolic resin laminate. The P3 motor assembly uses the very highest quality synchronous motor found in turntables five times the price of the P3! The motor is itself controlled by Rega's innovative new electronic circuitry, which results in this already low vibration motor running almost totally vibration free. The platter is hand crafted from floated plate glass 12mm in thickness. This makes for a superb platter material as it has few resonance problems, is extremely flat and has good mass. The P3 carries arguably the most famous tonearm ever produced, the legendary RB300. This tonearm will never be found wanting for performance and will make cartridges work very hard to provide you with astonishing quantities of musical detail.
  24. SOLD STP Leak plinthed Goldring Lenco GL75. Fully serviced and refurbished. Includes my main bearing mod which strengthens the bearing, makes it completely oil tight, and adds a 5mm grade 5 silicon nitride ball bearing resting on a PEEK thrust pad (inspired by SPH and Jolyon's bearings in LencoHeaven). Motor has been serviced, relubed & coils recentred. Arm has new V blocks and new pillar bearings. New mains wiring, new phono sockets on rear panel. Plinth & lid wood has been lightly sanded and linseed oiled. Lid perspex shows signs of age but no cracks or major scratches. Chunky third party hinges. New baseboard and felt feet. Spring suspension is excellent. Includes a Cambridge Audio Atlantic interconnect cable and earth lead. Cartridge is a Grado F3 fitted with a new-ish condition Black stylus. How does it sound ?? Bloody maaaaaaaaarvellous. Motor and bearing run almost completely silently. Come and have a listen Located NN3 Northampton. I've put a LOT of work into this one. £245 plus post and it's yours .
  25. SOLD ELSEWHERE CJ Walker CJ55 Turntable with Lenco GL75 tonearm. Arm has been modded to use a straight carbon fibre wand and an adjustable Dual Carbon Fibre headshell. New armboard from laminate material, cut to fit the arm and lift mechanism. Cartridge is a Vertex V-70 and stylus looks like new and plays perfectly. Tracking and alignment are spot on. Original motor, modded to remove "knock" problem, as is common in this motor. Ceramic ball bearing on base in threaded housing, with screw for adjustment. New belt. Main bearing fully serviced, cleaned and relubed, with silicon nitride ball bearing. New mains wiring to new mains plug. Tonearm rewired with copper Litz wire, and terminated in gold phono sockets and ground tag on rear panel. Good care taken of grounding. Sub & Main platters are of "Tufnol" material and are in VGC, both perfectly balanced. Lid & hinges are original and in good condition, with just the usual minor wear and surface marks as you would expect from something of this age. Flash photography always makes marks appear much worse than they are ! Plinth is also in good condition, with the same age and wear marks, lightly sanded and oiled with linseed oil and a final coat of wax polish. Wood looks beautiful. New baseboard and feet. An altogether excellent turntable, beautifully balanced on four point suspension, with access to 4x balance hex head bolts on top panel. I always try and describe my kit as fully and accurately as possible, please feel free to ask any questions ! Located NN3 Northampton. Looking for £235 plus post or collect. Happy to demo, can also deliver within 50 miles ish of Northampton.
