Yep I’m already stalking that hifido :grinning:

Classic Audioscope pricing! Do they ever sell anything?

I passed on a much better unit on yahoo auction yesterday which included the original cartridge/ headshell.


#5941

Bidding on Yahoo can be tricky - if you use a 3rd party co / expensive. Better to have a contact in JPN willing to do favors…


#5942

Sadly the friends I made in Honda when I was working over there were over 15 years ago, so no such luck.


#5943

The trouble is, it’s impossible to register for an account with a UK address, hence the 3rd party businesses that do enable you to buy but with a premium slapped on top.


#5944

Yes a premium but still probably not as expensive as Audioscope :rofl:


#5945

You could import from Oz for that extra heat warming feel of ‘Oh God I’ve paid over the odds’ coupled with the ecstasy of VAT

Personally, I’d stick to Hi-Fi Do. Their prices aren’t silly and they know how to pack stuff properly. Took me about an hour to get into my PS-X9 when it arrived from them!


#5949

Yeah, who needs cueing when you can have an arm lifter :smiley:

Many thanks to Mick and Rob for the brilliant help in bringing this beauty down from that Liverpool.


#5952

Lovely!


#5953

That was fast. Nice!


#5954

Does it sound as good as it looks?


#5955

Well yes, but very soon after connecting it, one channel decided to start flicking in and out. Dirty switch I think.

Edit. The faulty switch is on the Luxma not the Micro Seiki.


#5956

Fabulous looking TT :heart_eyes:


#5957

You should have seen it when my mate got it. It had been used in tv/movie studio and it was absolutely wrecked, covered in all kinds of crap. I thought he was off his head tbh.


#5958

One of the nicest TT’s I’ve seen, now.

Hat off to your mate.
