  1. Thanks @Andrews_melb, I have no doubt you’re correct. However, at the moment I’m all about keeping things simple with less boxes, less interconnects and making the hifi easy to use for the family. With this in mind, the well reviewed phono stage made the Elex-R an attractive option. I’ll look at an external phono stage when I move into MC land, but for now, I’m just enjoying an easy to use system that sounds fun!
  2. Thanks very much @anandpkumar and @08Boss302 for your feedback and suggestions. Certainly opened up some more possibilities. However, after a very helpful discussion with Geoff at @HeyNow Hi-Fi, I settled on the Soundsmith Otello. This was Geoff’s solid recommendation, even after a discussion about the much more expensive Clearaudio Maestro.
  3. Hi all, Interested in some opinions of those more learned than me. I am about to purchase a new Rega Planar 6 from a dealer, and looking for a suitable MM cartridge to match with it. The P6 has the RB330 tonearm. I have a Rega Elex-R amp, and I’m keen to use its very good MM phono stage and keep things simple in the house, rather than adding an external phono stage for an MC cartridge. For completeness, my speakers are Wharfedale Lintons. I prefer a warmer sound, although this is not overly critical as the Lintons have plenty of warmth. I’m not keen on the Rega Exact, preferring to stretch higher. Some options I’m considering are the Soundsmith Otello (moving iron), Ortofon 2M Bronze or Black, and the Clearaudio Maestro. Hopefully that gives an idea on my budget. I’m not interested in vintage or second hand cartridges, instead looking to purchase from a dealer who can fit it for me. Thanks very much in advance!
  4. Further information: Was using this Chord Company Clearway RCA between my streamer and amp, but now have Bill’s awesome cables throughout, so it’s no longer required. It’s 1m in length. Numerous positive reviews online, most notably a back-to-back award winner with What HiFi as the best interconnect. Have original packaging for easy shipping. Photos:
  5. Still looking... A low output MC cartridge wasn’t suitable for my current needs.
  6. Item: Rega Fono MC Price Range: To be discussed Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Looking for the Rega Fono MC phono stage, as I’m making my first foray into the MC world with other Rega items. Please let me know if you are thinking of selling one, or another of similar quality/price point.
  7. Also happy to have a chat about anything else you might have of similar quality / price point. A couple that spring to mind would be the Mofi Studio or Ultra Deck, Technics SL1200GR, Clearaudio Concept etc. Just shoot me a PM. Cheers
  8. Item: Rega Planar 6 Price Range: To be discussed Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking for the 2017 version of the Rega Planar 6, preferably without or with an MM cartridge. Also prefer a Victorian based seller, but happy to chat about shipping. Please message me if you’re thinking of selling.
  9. Close by no cigar! Congrats on the win @jjinh, enjoy! Thanks again @Grizzly, you're a true gentleman.
  10. This is very generous of you @Grizzly Please include me in the draw, thanks very much.
  11. Thanks for the interest everyone. This is now sold pending payment and pickup. Any issues and I'll contact in order of messages received.
  12. Further information: Purchased this Chromecast Audio from eBay in August 2020 as ‘new old stock’. Unlike the refurbished Kogan CCAs, this comes with an Australian powerbrick, as well as the USB cord and the green/yellow 3.5mm connecting cable. The serial number is also clearly printed. I connected this to a Chord Mojo via optical (also for sale) as an entry-level streaming option, which sounded great! However, I have simplified streaming for my family with the purchase of a Node 2i. I have the original packaging for easy shipping if required.

  13. Further information: I am the second owner of this Chord Mojo Headphone Amplifier and DAC, having purchased it in November 2020. It is in absolutely perfect condition as it’s been stored in the official Chord Mojo carry case, which shows sign of wear. The battery was recently replaced by an authorised Chord dealer, and holds charge for at least 8 hours. It’s had limited use with me as we tend to listen to vinyl more. It has never left the house in its time with me. It’s a great sounding DAC, as the many reviews suggest. A regretful sale, but I have simplified streaming for my family with the purchase of a Node 2i. I have the original boxes for the Mojo and the carry case, as well the USB cable, making shipping easy if required.
