    Sound Traps

    Thanks. It wouldn’t be difficult to change the fabric if another type or colour is preferred. They proved very effective for me when I had a square room which bounced the sound around too much.

    Sound Traps

    Sound Traps I made these a few years ago for a particular room and they proved very effective at reducing acoustic reflections making for an improvement in sound stage depth, focus and clarity. They are made with pine surrounds with mdf backing and filled with Rockwool. The Rockwool is covered first by calico then with white linen stretched over the top. The photo shows 3 of the freestanding ones but I have 4. They are 2ft by 4ft by 4inches deep. The other photo shows a 4ft by 4ft one which is 2inches deep and can be hung on the wall. They are priced at £20 each or £80 for all five. Collection from Grantham. Thanks.

  7. I have a pair of Avalon Idea speakers, also in Walnut, which are smaller than the Olympica iii’s and I know will work very well with your Vitus amp should you wish to consider an exchange. Please let me know if you would like some photos. Regards.
  8. **** SOLD **** My Audiomods Classic 11 tone arm is up for sale for £375. The story here is I bought this in 2012 to mount on a Michell Gyro (as photo 1) and there it stayed doing a fine job until late last year when I acquired a Brinkman Bardo. It was my intention to change the arm as soon as I could but after looking around at various alternatives I decided to buy a new Series Five arm from Jeff at Audiomods. He does not make the Classic any more. It has just arrived and is now installed on the Bardo, looking and sounding wonderful. I would say in performance terms there is a few percent increase in transparency and crispness to the sound over the Classic but its not massive. At the same time as placing my order Jeff offered to service and make some updates to my Classic. Here is a quote from his e-mail to me on him returning it a few days ago. " I've done as many updates as possible to your old arm including the alloy arm rest and an updated loom and given it the latest packing. When it finds a new owner it is under warranty for them". You can't say fairer than that. Jeff's service is as good as his craftsmanship. So as photos 2 and 3 it remains in the box as received from Jeff together with his latest setup notes and general guidance. The price of £375 includes postage within the UK. Thanks.

    SOLD Transcriptor Hydraulic Reference Turntable

    Sold, pending payment. Thanks
  11. Transcriptor Hydraulic Reference Turntable with SME 3009 tone arm and Goldring 1042 cartridge. I have owned this Transcriptor for the last six years and can say sound wise its comes a close second to my Gyro SE. After lurking under a friends bed for ten years I undertook to restore it. It has had fresh silicone, rewired tone arm, new ball bearing, new record support pads and a thorough clean up. It comes with manual and a spare belt. But, as can be seen in the photographs, it would benefit from a new perspex cover and re-plating of the gold capstons. I would also recommend a new stylus for the 1042. The price is £500 and can be demonstrated. Collection only please. Payment by BT or cash. Thanks for looking.
  12. Hi Paul Thanks for a prompt posting of the cable. It works fine and first impressions through the Primare DAC is a more analogue, warmer sound. A little more detail and fuller bottom end but overall a more pleasing sound than straight CD. Nice. Many thanks Alan
