  1. 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. ________________________________ 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.
  2. 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 .
  3. 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.
  4. Almost excellent condition, thought I'd give the Wammers a look in Been in storage for some long time, plays spot on, do a search ala web and you'll see a lot of positive reviews... Had droopy rear counter weight stub...turned 180 and it's ok. Victor high end arm; Deck renowned to be better than a SL1210 Good Shure M75 ED cart stylus but deserves better. Seen on the bay for £600+ Looking for £480 I'm based in North London. Hornsey. Audition welcome...Collection only or I could meet up along top Half of M25 or along M11
  5. Just picked this up from a friend. Pretty tidy as you can see. There's a few lovebites on the plinth, but nowt that a rub and varnish couldn't sort out, bar that it's about as clean as I've seen. Works as should, as you can see in the video. I've just serviced it and lubed the parts that need lubing. Comes with a reet tidy lid. Comes with a DIN to RCA Adaptor. Comes fitted with a new AT91 cart/stylus as I wouldn't trust the stylus on the Ortofon MF15 that it's currently fitted with. Looking for £80 as it is a particularly tidy example in perfect working condition. Collection from OX11 - Didcot - Or I can deliver in a 60m radius for an extra £20 Ping me an email at admin@brownz.org or gimme a call on 07767 458151 https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ikvdqz7y212luxx/AABouZzs5wNHzNBMDlnnSA2ha?dl=0
  6. For sale, like new Michell ORBE Turntable. We (my wife and I) collected this with a SME V tonearm and Lyra Skala Cartridge that we are also selling from a client who decided it was a passing fad of his and that he'd rather spend the money on a home cinema system, he estimated that it had played for a maximum of 6 hours!! Fully boxed with (as far as I can tell) all accessories and complete with an additional lid that has never been out of the box as the original had a mark from new. We are located in Leeds and will deliver to any LS postcode for £10, other than that delivery will be by courier at cost with insurance. I will put a price on it of £2750 but if it does not achieve this we will sell to the best offer next Sunday evening, I hope that is acceptable. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Michell-Orbe-Turntable/123705145506?hash=item1ccd66b8a2:g:wAgAAOSwRcZcl3Xh
  7. (Early) New Year greetings to all you vinylistas. I have recently sniffed around a turntable or two for my third "sandpit" system, with you-only-live-once ringing in one ear and being-able-to-eat-would-be-nice ringing in the other; I ultimately decided that discretion is the better part of valour (at least for the rest of 2018...) but looked at some superb tables, both original and modded, with and without arms, with and without carts, belt and direct drive, Japanese and British... at great prices. I thought fellow wammers might like to give their imaginations a workout as a break from the pressures of Christmas and Brexit... not to help me find my own turntable but just as a general exercise in Wamship. (See related threads with other budgets) Here are the competition rules then. Budget £500 (not "if you can stretch...") But you don't need to spend it all! A great looking and sounding deck for £150 will do nicely, thank you Suitable for the widest range of music from gentle classical to full-on rock Complete turntable including deck, arm, cart and power supply (inc any adaptors if not 240v) No restriction on belt/direct drive, MM/MC or country of origin Can be used or new but... ... must not need any repair work or DIY skills (just turntable setup) - so no doer-uppers Must be in very good cosmetic condition (in case anyone finds specific examples) There will be no judging and no prizes. Everyone's a winner here. I might post an example myself later. Enjoy! Nigel
  8. My recently acquired (and no doubt just-passing-through) Technics SL-D3 has only light swirls on the lid. If I can get them out then it will be a totally pristine deck, and I'd love to find a tried and tested method for doing same as it opens up the possibility of picking up one of the many decks which come up on eBay, which look very tidy apart from the lid and which with a bit of elbow grease would be presentable+. Uzzy posted briefly about this (see below) and mentoned T-cut and brasso: I wondered whether others had their own recipes for returning a lid to its former glory. If you want to earn Wam Winner bonus points then we need before and after pics! But even if you don't, if you have a technique/product you'd be happy to recommend then do share. Thanks.

  12. FOR SALE £450 o.n.o. Rarely available and fully serviced Revox B795 direct drive linear tracking turntable with Goldring MM cartridge. Fully working order and in great original condition, including lid. Mechanics and electrics all working as they should. Superb Swiss Revox build and reliability . Sounds great. Bought in 2016 from an electrical store specialising in Revox equipment where it had been fully serviced. Comes with original user manual. Cartridge works but is used. These normally sell for between £600 and £1000, and are pretty rare in the UK. Private sale...part of a big audio collection down sizing effort. For cash on collection sale from Balham in SW London. Don't have original box and not willing to risk shipping. Photos added.
  13. WTD TW Raven or Zanden TPM-1 Turntable mat Either the TW Raven badged version ( Which for some reason is no longer available ) or the Zanden one Thanks in advance Shaun
  14. Putting my Avid Ingenium up for sale. It includes the Project 9cc tonearm (not the Evo). This TT brought me back to my beloved LPs, but I've moved on and I have to pay for that I have fitted a new belt to this, and it has the threaded clamp. I do have the box for this, but I can't for the life of me work out how the arm was packed safely in it. Therefore collection from Littlehampton would be preferable, or meet up somewhere not a million miles away (or WAM taxi of course). Current new price £1,650 Yours for £600

    Dual 506 problem

    Hi, looking for some help... I have resurrected an old Dual from my loft. Its been lying about for a few years, the platter was a bit stiff but a good clean and a few drops of oil and its fine. But, when I return the tonearm to the rest the turntable does not switch off? I have disassembled the unit and the mechanical side of it works fine, it is physically pressing in the micro switch for off and releasing it for on. The switch internal contacts are moving freely and look fine, the capacitor across the terminals is split and looks done... also one of the pins has broken from the base, I'm wondering if this was loose and arcing which popped the cap? It must have been making contact or the platter would not have spun. Anyway, I think i could fix the switch and replace the cap (240v 0.01up) Would be easier if i could get a new switch, anyone know where i can get one? dualswitch.mp4

  18. Hi guys, I've come to the forum for advice after recommendations of being one of the best UK hifi/audio forums around. I'm finally looking to join the vinyl gang, it's been a long time coming. A lot of gear has changed since I first did some research on this so I'm brushing up on what might be some decent entry hardware. My budget is about £500. My mind is in two at the moment, I don't need to fill an auditorium, just an average 5x5 size room but I do want it to be a very unobtrusive, small footprint system. Here's what I've pieced together for best quality with little footprint: Pro-Ject Audio Systems Primary Phono USB Hi-Fi Turntable £228 Q Acoustics 3020 Compact Bookshelf Speaker £179 Total £407 What I'm looking for is an amp to suit, I don't have a lot of cash left over so I've been looking at mini T amps. The Topping TP23 gets a mention in THIS article on The Master Switch. They actually recommend the Orb Audio Mini-T but it's not available in the UK or costly to ship. It will save me a lot of cash and seems to get a good wrap but its about the only recommendation I can find on it which is why I'm coming to you. What are your thoughts on cheap amps for this setup, keeping in mind the smallest footprint possible? Or Should I go the ultra-compact route, forget the amp and speakers and get a pair of Audioengine A2+ Speakers? And upgrade later in life when I want more from my vinyl. All thoughts welcome.
  19. As the title states which arm would you use out of the two arms I have available? A Helius Orion MKII and a WB ACT two Carbon arms To put with them I have an ATOC9 MKIII MC Cart. The arm of choice will be used on a real nice 'The Source' Turntable Thanks DM
  20. Acoustic Signature Manfred MK2 XL - Cherry - With Upgrades - £2595, RRP - £4026 Ex-Demo unit in 'as new' condition. Has been upgraded with the TA-700 tone arm, silver diamond cut load weight and upgrade leather mat. Fitted with a Soundsmith Carmen II cartridge. Original box and packing. See our website listing here 12 month warranty provided. Elite Audio are part of Audio Emotion, so you can buy with confidence Please call us on 0203 397 1119 for more information.
  21. Ex-display Pro-ject Xpression Carbon UKX, in black; mint condition. A superb turntable that offers a lot of performance in a compact design. Very low use, comes with all the original packaging, accessories and warranty. Pro-Ject Cork-It mat is included in the asking price. £599 new, now only £450. Click on the photo for more information:
  22. As the title suggests, I am looking for either a Michell Gyrodec or Gyrodec SE without a tonearm. Please pm me if you have one available. Thanks for looking.
  23. I'm looking for a decent starter TT for a friend - something like a Project Debut but anything better on offer would be great considering his budget is under £100. I can collect within reasonable distance from Cambs. Please let me know if yo have anything suitable. thanks Adrian
  24. Hello I wonder if I could ask for some turntable advice please? I've never had a turntable before and I've just been given a mint looking 1978 Technics SL150 direct drive (with its original packing) with SME Model 3009 Series II (improved) pick-up arm. I believe it has a Shure cartridge fitted. As it has been stored in its box and not played for at least 25 years, is there anything I should be aware of when using for the first time. Any hints and tips and websites suitable for a turntable virgin would be gratefully received.

    SALE Denon DL304

    Denon DL304 Cartridge Denon DL304, these are brilliant cartridges. This one I would say requires a re-tip so it is being sold as a non-runner. New old stock versions of these sell for a lot of money. £ - Open to offers. Collection preferred - Greater Manchester, but would post at cost.
