  1. How's about a RB200 - decent enough match for the Thorens, 'S' shape all in order and cheaper than Jelcos. Or find an original TP13a arm. This is what I decided to keep on my massively reworked TD150.
  2. High-end mains cable from Canada's finest, Gutwire. This made a very positive difference to my Naim power amp. I see on the 'bay gutwire mains cables with price tags of 800 quid and beyond. This one is now reduced to £145 inc p&p.
  3. I know the gut reaction is 'but its a dvd player'. well it is a CD machine that also spins dvds, not the other way around and I think that makes a difference. The engineering is very much with audio in mind. The transport, transformer and case work are all audiophile standard. A CD player weighing 7 kg. The original cost was north of £800 and this is new in box for £SOLD.
  4. My DVP-S7700. I know the gut reaction is 'but its a dvd player'. well it is a CD machine that also spins dvds, not the other way around and I think that makes a difference. The engineering is very much with audio in mind. The transport, transformer and case work are all audiophile standard. A CD player weighing 7 kg. The original cost was north of £800 and this is new in box for £150.
  5. The post-move clear out at RPM towers continues... A Sony DVP-S7700 CD/DVD player in champagne finish. AS NEW - purchased new by me, stored and only opened to test prior to sale. £150 + postage at cost. I bought this to use as a transport because of the battleship build quality and attention to engineering detail (copper mountings, isolation feet, transformers, separate circuits for CD etc) . This was Sony's top of the range spinner back in the day. Alas I just never got round to using it. I've been hanging on to it thinking 'one day...' but I do need to shift some kit, so here it is. The internal dac is no slouch, but I suspect there would be more to come if used as a dedicated transport. Sony put a lot of effort and engineering into the CD capabilities. Plenty of info on the net. The pictures are as informative as looking at a sealed cardboard box can be:
  6. Thanks Ian - the arm and tecnoweight are a great combination. The rewire delivers more detail and clarity (its the same wiring loom as used in the tecnoarm). The tecnoweight adds body and makes everything more solid. It's like an instant injection of SME slam to proceedings. If the weight becomes available separately I'll let you know. Phil
  7. Incoming new arm means I will have my current arm available to sell to someone looking for a big step up in sound for modest outlay RB250 tonearm with a straight-through rewire by Jeff @ Audiomods and Michell Tecnoweight. Arm bearings and anti-skate mech are spot on. there are some small cart screw nibbles in the headshell wells, which to my eyes are not visible once cart is in place. The arm benefited from internal damping as part of the rewire (0.9m silver lintz run from cart tags to RCA phonos). The tecnoweight comes with original packaging and both medium/heavy counterweights. If the buyer wants to reduce cost, I can substitute the technoweight for a Rega steel end-stub and counterweight (an upgrade in itself over a standard RB250). RB250 / tecnoweight - £195 or arm with Rega steel stub and weight - £145 insured post @ £10 pics...
  8. did you check out the SN1 for sale on the art of sound?
  9. best to have two - one for solution and one for the rinse cycle. put 'em together and you have a very effective wet cleaning system. ps Duvet - top pic of Mick K
