eBay stuff

I messaged the seller some time ago when he last put up an advert, no joy on a reply, lost interest now.


#3101

That is rather nice, If you could only get a counterweight for an Io I might be interested!


#3102

I thought you could get blue sticky ones?


#3103

Mark has a counterweight for the weightier Io Gold…


#3104

Delivery was how long? :grinning:


#3105

Long.

He who waits…


#3106

Longer than the counter weight :laughing:


#3107

Talk to John at Midland Audio Exchange, he is always up for a deal.


#3108

The one Midland Audio, is a different model, more expensive.


#3109

John Roberts is Midland Audio.


#3110

I know that, but there seems to be two different turntables, being discussed.
The one on eBay, and the one that John has, which is a different model, to the one on eBay.


#3111

No, we know he does the Sindre too but check the description in the listing - distributor ex demonstrator.

Anyway, it seems somewhat academic to debate whether it sat in his shop at some point.


#3112

Sorry. MAX has an ex demo Sindre, on his website, and not a Magne.
I thought it was being implied that they were the same turntable.


#3113

Lol, how? The listing is for a Magne, the pictures are a Magne.


#3114

There is a Sindre up there too for a lot more than he was looking for it recently.


#3115

There are two, yes two turntables from the SAME manufacturer at MAX / John Roberts on eBay. See below;

Is that simple enough? :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Turns out that not only is it a similar design to the LFD it is actually an MC1 in a PT case.

Fortunately a refund should be incoming soon.

If nothing else I’ve tried an LFD MC1 and it’s very good :slight_smile:


#3117

Was the Pip2 something else then or was Richard Bews designing for PT?

There’s no answer in that thread as it’s about the pip2 preamp, I asked a question with a photo if you go to the end of it.

I put the PIP2 phono up for sale on ebay and was contacted by someone who said “that is not a PT PIP phono, someone has just made some PT style boxes and put an LFD MC-1 cards and power supply into them”

I emailed the photo to Richard Bews and then spoke to him this morning and he confirmed that is the power supply and cards from an MC-1, even the power supply umbilical is the one from the MC-1. He didn’t mention ever making or designing one for PT and I did say I’d bought it described as a PT PIP phono with a corresponding label on the back.

@loo Does this match the internals of your PIP phono stage?
