He does seem to be taking the piss recently, he’s also selling an OL Calypso for £1600 and they are only £2k list.
I’m not really suggesting that Emporium are over pricing it, I’ve never sen a SH one for sale. More a case of Kondo pricing being reflected in SH values
I did hear a CFz. It is still unmistakeably a Kondo product. They obviously have some nice fine core material for the laminations & they also know how to wind nice SUTs. It seems that the old S6 & S7’s are fetching £2-3K now so its not an insane price although it does seem a lot when I think I paid £180 for a pair of loose S6 transformers. But that was about 10 years ago.
Also tried a CFz. Thought it was a bit m’eh.
Definitive have an SFz for sale
I call upon Nob-San to make us an affordable version.
I can see why it’s rare.
I think I like it but not 100% sure on it though. I am looking for a turntable…
It would make an excellent door stop
Not really concrete though, is it. More like coarse sand/resin composite.
Does it meet building regs and come with planning permission, if not might have to report it to the council.
What sort of record player are you after? Budget?
Around £2k but not really ready to buy just yet. Was planning on a Trans-Fi Salvation but he’s not doing them anymore so looking around. No real type though I always like the look of a massive platter.
What, no more transfi, what happened? I always fancied a salvation seem to be excellent value, perhaps too excellent
From his site:
October 2016: Sold my last Salvation this month. With regret I have no more parts to make any more and my regular machinist has retired. Not sure I have the motivation to find another machinist and teach him what is necessary to produce a platter…so I have suspended production.
Information will remain on my website for reference and Terminator production will continue as normal.
That is a real shame. There’s a nice battery PT Anniversary on eBay, the opposite of a big plattered behemoth, but a might fine record player.
Yeah, I’ve seen that. I’ll see what’s available when I come to pull the trigger, I just thought a lower offer on the Thorens might be worth a gamble (as I doubt many have heard that).
