Price drop to £1550.00 for this amazing turntable complete package in almost new condition.
I am willing to listen to sensible offers for this beautiful & very capable TT and ‘arm.
This is a very reluctant sale, as I have been very happy with this turntable, but a combination of its large footprint along with my growing pile of mono records means I have to let this turntable go to pastures new. It is the top version, with extended plinths to accommodate the 12 inch arm, upgraded inner platter with bearing platter & spindle machined from one piece of stainless steel, upgraded top platter made from stainless steel & acrylic, & outboard power supply. It is in stunning condition, the acrylic plinth is free from any marks or scratches, save for 2 small ones on the bottom plinth which are covered by the top plinth & cannot be seen. There are no nibbles to the edges, which are still straight & sharp, cosmetically I would say 9.5/10. The arm is a Opera Consonance 12 inch carbon tubed & damped unipivot, which I have found to be a delight to use, easy to set up, & has great sonic qualities, far exceeding the X200 arm normally found on Inspire turntables. It can be used undamped if required, although I find I prefer the sound with it damped. The outboard power supply, an optional extra, looks like a Heed Orbit to be without branding, & has performed faultlessly. This package retailed at well over £4k, I am selling the total package for £1550, which for the quality of the engineering, style & sound quality is a bit of a bargain in my opinion. I would describe the sound as neutral, it is louder than most decks I have had too, it digs out lots of detail without being too analytical, provides a wide sound stage & truly excellent imaging. It comes with a phial of bearing oil, some silicone damping fluid, & a full sized acrylic cover, which isn’t perfect but doesn’t have any cracks or bad scratches, a spare Rega fit armboard, & a beautifully machined record weight. I would consider selling TT & arm separately, but they go together so well I don’t know why you would want one without the other. I do have the original box & would post at a push, but would much rather it be collected, where it can be demoed, or maybe a half way meet depending on distance. The cartridge is not included & not for sale separately. Many more pictures by request
