Audio Note Refurbished AN IO and AN S2 SUT

Recommended Posts

Some of you may have read on here that our house sale fell through and as we need to get to immigrate to be with elderly parents we will rent out our home instead.  Sadly this means that we need to raise funds for the move and some hifi and musical items very reluctantly need to be sold.  

You may have also read that I love this IO 1 cartridge and it was my destination cartridge.  I only bought it secondhand late last year with c100 hours on it but it had a problem with the suspension so I sent it to Audio Note to do a complete refurbishment.  But Audio Note said that they only needed to adjust the suspension as the cartridge sounded especially good and had a lot of life left in it.  Since the refurbishment the cartridge has only been played for 1 hour as I have a channel balance problem with my arm.  (Audio Note also re-fitted the tags on my Audio Note Arm 2/2 but applied too much solder to one cable and so the capacitance is incorrect on one channel and it needs re-doing. Once the tags are re-fitted post August I might be selling the arm as well)

Am also selling an Audio Note AN S2 SUT.  It's best to use an Audio Note SUT with the IO due to the low output of this cartridge. 

Please see the photos.  I have more and can do more high resolution ones for the cartridge if needed. 

Both are in great condition.  One thing to point out about the SUT is that it was missing one 'foot' when I bought it.  Audio Note sent me another one but it was the wrong size.  I spoke to Peter Q the other day and he told me that Audio Note are not really open for business until August so you could get another one, if important, when they are open again.

I would really like to sell these together or would sell the IO separately once the SUT is sold.

Bearing in mind that Audio Note have done the refurb and the condition of these items looking for £1,600.  I believe that the cartridge retails for c£3,000 and the SUT c£1,000.  We are due to leave the UK on 20th July.  After this date postage will be a lot more as it will be sent from Portugal.

You could collect from Teddington TW11 or I can post Royal Mail.  I have the original box for the SUT and will pack both very well.

Am selling other stuff so please look out for other items.

Thanks

Dom

You need to host photos on an external site such as Flickr then link them.  The wam doesn't have enough space to host unlimited photos, sorry.

Please see the photos.  I can only load a small number because the Wam software is telling me that my small 576kb photos are huge 2mb files! And now that I have deleted my photos from this listing to start again the Wam will not allow me to upload any further photos! Very frustrating - mods can you help please? I can send additional ones via email

They probably only reed resizing Dom... email them to me at orbscure@hotmail.com and I'll see what I can do :)

A few friendly wammers suggested that even though Audio Note have refurbished the cartridge that I was asking too much money. Price reduced to £1600.

Alternatively buy my 1kg Silver bullion in the non-hifi sale section so I don’t have the sell the IO.

Last bump. If this does not sell by mid-week I will need to withdraw it from sale and I shall keep it.
