  1. Hi Shane, apologies for the late reply! It has a hum audible with no source or speakers attached and then once they are, it comes through the speakers. Tech couldn’t fix it. Cheers, Jason.
  2. Seller? I called him something else. No reply, of course. Yeh I’m very disappointed. He talked it up describing it as in excellent condition. It even had silicone used to stop one of the selector shafts from wobbling around and the knobs fell off when I unpacked it. Sad thing is, I thought he was genuine and I’ve wanted a Plinius for many years so I’m pretty gutted.
  3. Hi all, I purchased a Plinius 8150 here a few months back from NZ and turned out to be faulty with some nasty humming so took it to a tech up here in Brisbane who recapped it but was unable actually fix the problem. So now after paying top dollar for a dud, and paying for re-capping, I’m going backwards on what I was hoping would be a decent little amp. Would anyone have any contacts for someone that has experience with the 8150? If not, I’ll re-list it here for spare parts! Cheers, Jason.
  4. Very nice example! Any classic Sansui amp is a collectable and enjoyable investment that could live forever and only go up in value in the process. GLWTS.
  5. Mrkropotkin is correct. Coming from a cabinet maker, best option is to use a wax filler stick in the correct colour. Then sit back and enjoy the speakers! GLWTS!
  6. Hi all, I paid top dollar for a Plinius 8150 which as it turned out, had seen better days and now at my local tech. Finding it hard to source any info/schematics on line. I’ve emailed Plinius but heard they don’t often reply so cutting to the chase. if anyone out there in Audio land can assist, that would be awesome. I really should be getting a refund but (surprise) the seller has gone AWOL. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi guys, I’m after a Vintage 70’s Marantz or Sansui receiver for my personal use. Marantz 22 Series or Sansui 771, 881 or others considered as well as others like Pioneer SX and Luxman etc. Feel free to get in touch if you have something that may be of interest that you’re looking at selling. Can negotiate price based on model and condition. Please note, must be visually good without face plate scratches or damage. Happy to pay for delivery interstate or can pick up Brisbane area and surrounding. Cheers!

  8. This sold for $401. Not bad, but the SME did look like she’d seen better days. Still a bit of a bargain as they’ll only go up in value.
  9. Hi mate, Yeh had a read and it does get a good rap. Not many come up for sale so parts may be harder to source than the SME arms? Not sure. I’m happy enough with the sound I get from my other deck with a Series 2 and V15III on it and as always with HiFi, so many parts to make up a whole and the never ending persuit for better sound! Especially from Vintage gear.
  10. SME as above Purchased from Bernard. Thanks all for your input. It’s been fun! Still looking for a Series 2 for another deck. Cheers, Jason.
  11. Hi RankStranger, Its a Series 1 on that deck and yeh, it looks like it’s seen better days. I’ll keep an eye on it. I’d say all bids are for the arm.
  12. Cheers. PM Sent re the Series 3. Hi Honreekia, I’ll let you know re the Series 2.
