    • Price: AUD $220
    • Condition: Excellent working condition.
    • State: (WA) Western Australia/Australia
    Selling a vintage Kenwood KA-3700 integrated amplifier, it's in excellent working condition, has been tested and everything seems to be working, very nice sounding amp.
  1. Who else owns and uses a Clear Audio turntable or a Clear Audio TT package (TT, Arm and possibly CA cartridge). I know of one other in Adelaide but I’m sure there are more in SA and other States / Territories Mine is a vintage Avantgarde Magnum CA TT with upgrades and using a SME-V arm and a Lyra Kleos MC cartridge. Upgraded to the Ceramic Magnetic Bearing and added the Smart Syncro speed controller. The heavy plinth sits upon 4 Isoacoustics Orea suspension feet (not in picture, they are the old feet). Platter mat is a Funk Firm Achromatic. Furutech AG-12 phono cable into a Lundahl SUT and a GoldenAgeAudio Reference Phono amplifier both built by DUC (RIP) to his top specifications.
  2. Extra Info: seeking wooden case to suit a Vintage Marantz 2330, case model is WC-43
  3. Further Information: Here is a beautiful vintage Japanese turntable. It is warm and smooth with great musicality and dynamics. Just serviced with new belt fitted and the stylus has plenty of life left. Includes original manual, cartridge, dust wand, stylus protector and original box for stylus. I had a couple of turntables prior to this, and it was this turntable that reignited my love of vinyl and showed me what the medium is capable of. I’ve since paid a lot more for other turntables, however the SR-2050C still compares very favorably and is a pleasure to listen to. It is in very good condition considering its age with just minor superficial marks in the dust cover. There is minor chip to the inside front plinth that is generally not seen unless looking down from above. See the pic. Otherwise you will see that it presents well. See info from Vinyl Engine below. Description The Sansui SR-2050C is a striking model strictly for the purist looking for the simplicity and accuracy of a manual turntable with the basic convenience of an automatic. Incorporating two of Sansui's latest engineering breakthroughs - auto lift/stop mechanisms - the SR2050C substantially adds to the convenience of the manual turntable without sacrificing any of it's accuracy. Like most automatics, the tonearm automatically lifts from the final groove of the record in play. But unlike conventional automatics which take advantage of increasing end-of-play tonearm speed to trigger the lifting device, the auto-lift mechanism is entirely electrical and is set in motion by a special detector circuit which activates a relay/solenoid control system. Specifications Type: 2-speed, belt-driven turntable with auto-lifter and auto-stop Platter: 301mm, 1.2kg, die-cast aluminium alloy Motor: 4-pole synchronous Speeds: 33 and 45rpm Signal to noise ratio: better than 40dB Wow and flutter: less than 0.07% Tonearm: static balance, tubular, inside force canceller, lateral balancer, direct readout stylus pressure scale Arm length: 220mm Overhang: 15mm Cartridge: induced magnet type Frequency response: 20-20,000Hz Output: 5mV Stylus pressure: 2g Stylus: 0.5mil diamond Dimensions: 190 x 442 x 352mm Weight: 11.8kg
  4. Hi everyone, I have a vintage Marantz amplifier that I reckon has an issue. After using it for less than 30 minutes with a turntable in the phono input it feels very hot to the touch and recently has had a rather unpleasant smell coming from it too. Does anyone have any experience with this and/or is there a good repair or service place in the Melbourne area I may be able to take it to? Thanks in advance
  5. I recently acquired this amplifier. The build quality is impressive and it looks awesome. However, there is not much written about this amplifier on the Internet. I also have a Pioneer SA-7300 amplifier. The Hitachi is 25W per channel compared to the Pioneer's 35W per channel. The sound coming out my KEF Concertos sounds a little better with the Hitachi. What do other think about Hitachi amplifiers from the 1970s?
  6. Hi, Just picked up a Pioneer PL25 turntable. It's in terrific condition and everything works ok with the exception of the cut off/cueing feature (I'm not sure of the correct term). Halfway through the last track the arm basically stalls and won't track to the end and lift off (like it's stuck on a track). I've tried several LP's with the same result, so it's not an album problem. If I lift the arm towards the centre the cueing mechanisn cuts in and takes over (so it works ok). The function also works if I use the lever at any time during the playing of an LP. I've read on this forum that some have dismantled/disengaged the auto function and settled for manual operation. I'd probably settle for that but I would like to try and fix this issue If I can. It looks like it should be fixed by a slight adjustment/tweak that would allow the arm to go a little further toward the centre of the LP. Maybe that's just wishful thinking. The second question is: If I can't fix it, does anyone know how to disengage the auto function without damaging the components (i.e. so that the function can be re-engaged at a later date). I've removed the bottom cover to have a look at the mechanism. It appears to be quite intricate but at least it is reasonably accessible. Any tips or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks
  7. The July 2013 meeting of the Sydney Audio Club sees us once again at Dence Park for an afternoon of fine music and sound and convivial company. Each month, the Sydney Audio Club presents the finest in high end audio systems for our members and guests. It's a bit like a private audio show once a month where you can hear and discuss equipment that you might not otherwise have the chance to audition. And you can bring along your own music to test the capabilities of the system or to just share with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. It’s Vintage/Classic time once again. We had a lot of wonderful vintage gear last year and this year is looking just as good. For our meeting, we are considering anything pre-1995 to be vintage/classic equipment. For the last couple of years the cut-off date has been 1990 – time marches on though so we’ve moved the date a bit. We will have two main systems this year. Some of the components include: - a Pioneer SA-7500 amp - a Pioneer SX-1980 receiver - a Sony X555ES CD player - Sony and Tascam DAT machines - a Meridian CD player - an A. R. Sugden & Co. Connoisseur BD1 turntable complete with a SME tone-arm and a Shure V15 Type 3 cartridge - B&W DM 220 speakers - a Pioneer reverb amp from the 70s - a NAD 7240PE receiver - a Transcriptor Hydraulic Reference, with Fluid Arm and Stanton 681eee - Japanese valve amps - various cassette decks - a Reel to Reel deck We’re working on a Japanese theme from source through to speakers for one system. We’ll also have lots of gear on static display as well – such as a pair of B&W DM4 speakers. The second half of the music sessions will be our popular BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite music on vinyl or CD. (Sorry, we won’t be able to play flash drives or SACD as the players aren’t vintage… yet.) All we ask is that the music and recordings be interesting. We'll ask you to tell us a little about the artist/recording before it is played. Tracks over 6 minutes will be faded out, to give everyone a fair go. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran, you will have the opportunity to listen, learn and share your experiences with others of a similar mind. Members and guests welcome – we are a very friendly club so you don't need to know anyone to join us for an afternoon of fine music and sound. We will welcome you at the door. Venue: Epping Creative Centre Address: 26 Stanley St, Epping When: Sunday 14th July Doors open 1pm Meeting starts at 2pm Best regards, Tom Waters President Sydney Audio Club www.sydneyaudioclub.org.au tomwaters@sydneyaudioclub.org.au On behalf of Tom and the Sydney Audio club Inc.

  8. Here to try and get some ideas on a new set up. Fairly new to decent stereo equipment (used to run my turntable into a crappy kenwood amp and speakers, and then for a while from a DJ turntable into my Roland KC-150 keyboard amp, which actually didn't sound too bad, only in mono). Now working on improving what i have, or possibly moving to some quality vintage gear. Currently running a Rega RP1 turntable, into a Rega Brio-R and Mission Mx3's. The setup is nice but not great but was a decent start. I think it could be a slippery slope into the world of hi-fi from here. Current setup suits the acoustic, soul and blues that i listen to, but as soon as i kick on some rock n roll jams it doesnt have it. I like to play fairly loud when i listen to rock n roll (which is often), but the bottom end just isn't up for it in this setup, hence the want/need to upgrade. Looking for a new setup, maybe just new speakers or amp and speakers to put that smile on my face when i crank on some Black Sabbath, ACDC, Led Zeppelin etc. Am thinking maybe some vintage speakers could do the job,. Does anyone have any recommendations on where to look for some vintage speakers, or what i should be looking for. Am gonna go check out hi-fi exchange, and check the classifieds here. Am also keen to have a listen to some new gear, any recommendations on what i should be looking? Budget is around the $2500 mark. Any help would be much appreciated.
  9. Hi Everyone, I am hoping someone here can point me in the right direction. I recently was given a awesome vintage Audio Research SP-6 Pre-Amplifier. One of the resistors on the board was fried, I removed it and now am trying to replace it. I have included some pictures below along with a video. If anyone knows which resister I need it would be really appreciated. Obviously I am a noob and just need a bit of guidance. Thanks allot. Oh I have the schematics but have no idea what I am looking at. Thanks in advance Simon
  10. Hi fellow SNAers, It's been a while since my last restoration post (Sansui 555A), I have been quite busy with more restoration work and thus wanted to share a recent project I had finished. So continuing my audio journey into the world of Vintage HiFi, I was lucky enough to acquire this beautiful rare Marantz Model 33 Pre-amplifer. Any double (or single!!) digit Marantz unit is extremely rare in the US, yet alone Australia - so I was quite a happy camper When I purchased this Pre-amp, It was advertised as 'serviced'... however upon inspection, boy was I in for a suprise.. This so called 'tech' who had 'serviced' her managed to unload, what looks to be half a bottle of some sort of corrosive 'lubricate' substance causing the bottom plate to PEEL and etch a majority of the paint off! Ouch. This oily substance was evvvvvverywhereeeee!! I had to flush the poor girl out with contact cleaner... Not Happy Jan. Some people just don't care... Apart from that, the unit had 100% original components Yay! Anyways, after removal of the bottom plate, the unit itself presented a very easy setup for a recap. Went through and wrote down a caps list. The capacitor choice this time was some local Hitano EXR capacitors purchased from Wagner Electronic Services (WES) (no allifiation). I have been advised that these caps present a great bang for buck and have since used them in all my other work, latest being my Yamaha CR-2020 (more on that later). The reason for the recap was due to her 'acting up' - her symptoms screamed of sick capacitors, dry joints and scratchy pots i.e. random drop outs, loudness switch jumping almost triple in volume, slight intermittent buzzing noise, overall she was one sick amp. I'll let the pictures tell the story. will post more up as I go Daniel
  11. After much pontificating between the merits of modern and vintage turntables, I took the plunge and purchased the Kenwood KP-9010 DD turntable from Hifido. I was keen to grab a Yamaha GT-2000, but couldn’t put my hands on one so pulled the trigger on the Kenwood. Up until now I’ve had a Rega P2 which was great value for money but I wanted a better source to express my vinyl addiction. This unit (like the Yamaha) wasn’t sold in the west so there is a dearth of information about it. However what I gleaned from forums seemed to indicate it was worth a shot. It is close to TOTL and a budget version of the Kenwood L-07D. More information http://www.thevintageknob.org/kenwood-KP-1100.html on the Vintage Knob (the KP-1100 preceded the 9010 and they look to be identical) which shows the single die cast chassis design. The Kenwood was set up yesterday and she is very pretty – clad in glossy black and sporting a very cool looking tonearm (my technical description). After fiddling with VTF and antiskate she is up and running and playing tunes and sounding fine. I installed a brand new Ortofon MC10 Supreme and keen to get feedback from SNAers on whether this is a good match for the DS tonearm ? Happy to take suggestions on alternatives up to $700 - no preference for MM or MC. Tonearm specs are: Type: J Shaped Static Balance Effective Length: 24.5cm Overhang: 15mm Tracking error: +1,8 .... -1 Tracking force: 0...3g Cartridge Weight: 2...12g My phono stage is a PS Audio GCPH and music preferences are alternative and classic rock. I’m also looking for help on cartridge alignment – is there a particular protractor that I should use ? Lastly keen to hear whether anyone else has tried this TT or own any of the other Kenwood’s ?
  12. Hi All, I have been lucky enough to pick up this big girl from yet another collector from Melbourne. Picked it up for a fair price and had it shipped up undamaged *phew!* only issue is that the tone switch was cutting out the left speaker (must have been due to transit). A bit of jiggling and actuations and she sings beautifully now. First things first, I am amazed at just how accurate and musical sounding this amp is.. I have been playing just about everything on her Flat (no treble/bass increase), it is similar to my Yammie CR2020 receiver but definitely packs more punch! She loves Jazz, all my Norah Jones, Enya, Celine, Alicia, Sarah Mclachlan cds getting their workout. There is no colouring in the sounds at all, what you put in is what you get out. Compared to my Marantz pieces which has a very beefy, boomy (some would call this 'Warm') bass. The 919 packs a nice clean bass and past 12oclock, she gets loud. really loud! I am sure she is well over her 100wpc conservative rating. Great news also is that the unit has recently been serviced, with the seller advising that all the 'glue' has been removed and 'some' caps replaced. Although I haven't had a chance to opened her up yet. I have been enjoying her as is. I think where the 919 really shines though is the mids and highs, she produces a very clean sound at the top end that my Krix Lyrix Gold just hasn't been used to. Even with my Yammie CR2020, which is still a great amp, I have not heard such clarity through my speakers. I am blown away and it has far surpassed my expectation of a TOTL big daddy amp. Prior to the purchase I called John (skippy124) up to pick his brains - Thanks John Lol. These amps are rare and I have not seen any come on for sale in my time searching. Only downside I can think of is this... my amps are starting to breed which is raising a few eyebrows (and fists) from the wife. LOL I am becoming a Sansui Tragic.. what's wrong with me -Daniel
  13. I have just started on what I am sure will be a very long but fun journey through the world of vintage Hi Fi. My journey started with the purchase of a Luxman R-1050 receiver. It is working well but I plan to recap it soon. It is also missing one of the tone knobs which I am currently seeking. The next step on the road was the purchase of a pair of Transmission Line Speakers built to the second of Bailey’s TL designs. Fell in love with these the moment they were demonstrated. I am now looking to take my next step on the road, the purchase of a turntable. I would like it to be from the same period as the other components (ie. 1975 to 1979) of good quality but not more than $700. Any advice on what I should look for?
  14. New acquisition! Yamaha A-2000 Looks awesome walnut trim OFC wiring. Gold terminals and copper chassis. Wish I knew how many were made! Looking forward to seeing how it sounds with the NS-1000's.
  15. Hi all This is my first post here and would be grateful if someone could please help me out. I recently acquired a vintage Sharp Optonica from Germany and am wanting to connect it to my Sonos speaker but I'm not even sure if it's possible. The optonica has a fat 8 pin connector which I assume would plug straight into some regular old speakers? However I do not have the room for speakers so it would be great if I could buy some type of adapter which I could then plug into my Sonos. I have attached some photos of the connector on the optonica and the sonos. If anyone could tell me what I need to purchase to make this work that would be great. Cheers!

  17. Well, about a month ago I had a momentary lapse of reason & decided to source a vintage amp to enhance the vinyl as my Yammy was not cutting it. Some very helpful people here on SNA offered up some very good suggestions & price points, but an opportunity (& big punt) was to good to miss from a seller in USA. There are many of these amps for sale it seemed, but this one was almost twice the price & the punt was on why?... A little over 4 weeks later, this little or shall I say BIG black beauty arrived from Mr FedEx - Super stoaked! So, was I looking through rose tinted vintage specs or was the punt worth it? Well - This unit is SPOTTLESS. It is so clean, it could possibly be mistaken for NOS (although there is probably no way to tell?). Eitherway it's prestine. There wasnt even previous signs of RCA's being plugged into any of the rear sockets - go figure!? After changing the voltage selector, I cabled it up, plugged her in & flicked the power switch... Then NOTHING!!! The power light went on, flashed & then about 5 seconds later a click. Everything appeared to be ok, no smoke, no loud bang. Only, there was no sound. I was sh***ing myself that it was a dud. So, taking a moment to breath & then systematically move from left to right across the panel to check each knob (which is what I felt like), suddenly, as soon as the tape source button (under the main source knob) was deselected, the room filled with those airy, but sweet warm sounds from that great gig in the sky. And from that moment on, the audible walls were torn down, the room transformed & our friends from Pink Floyd could be heard in the fullest fidelity deserved of such greatness. Wish you were here...

People always enjoy themselves at these events and we’ve had many requests for more of them. We had a lot of wonderful vintage gear last year and this year is looking just as good. Our main system this year will be an all Meridian system. We’ll have a Meridian CD player and preamp driving active Meridian M2 speakers. As well, we will have a Technics SL1300 (home consumer version of the 1200) with an Audio Technica AT33ML cartridge and a custom made MC step-up head amp. We’ll also have lots of gear on static display as well – such as an A. R. Sugden & Co. Connoisseur BD1 turntable (from Yorkshire) and B&W DM4 speakers. Btw – for our meeting, we are considering anything pre-1990 to be vintage/classic equipment. As usual, the second half of the music sessions will be BYO.

  19. Hey guys, i would like some advise on choosing between an marantz pm54 amp with a ST-64 tuner and a Technics Su-z65 and a st-z55 tuner. i have a friend who acquired both sets and wants to use one in a garage and i can have the other, he is not fussed. From what i can read the sets are very similar in specs with the marantz producing 10 more rms watts Im wanting to use this set to listen to radio and digital audio via a fiio x5 or computer and CD. I already have a marantz 2230b and a kenwood ka 5002 which i swap between using for vinyl. So i would be interested to know which one would be better suited for my purpose. they will be driving a set of 3 way kenwood floor speakers. I really don't have much experience with audio gear post 1980 so any help would be much appreciated
  20. Hi fellow SNAers, I'm looking to setup a vintage Sansui system to go with my pair of Ditton 25 or DM602 speakers, I'm also hooking it up to a JVC DD turntable. I'm looking for something from around 80watts/channel at 8ohms and up. The following integrated amps have sort of caught my eyes before: SANSUI AU-717/TU-717 SANSUI AU-D7 SANSUI AU-919 I'm also interested in acquiring a matching Tuner to go with the amp/system. If you have any of the above items and are genuinely looking to sell please send me a PM with asking price and details. I'm happy to negotiate a price that is in line with the item's condition. If you are unsure about selling your item please refrain from contacting me. Thanks in advance.
  21. Hi all, I recently missed out on a 70's Yamaha CA-810 Amplifier on eBay which I was keen on purchasing - How ever I completely forgot about the Auction. The Auction ended at $285, + Postage. I am happy to pay this or Negotiate depending on the condition etc.. etc... Or even better a Larger Yammy from that series... (Not smaller as I am after using it as a Pre amp). Please consider sending me a message if you have one you would like to move on. Happy to pay necessary Packing costs and Organize a courier from my end. Many Thanks ! Dek - Wollongong NSW.
  22. Hi All, So my thought's are to splurge close to $1500 on some Vintage 70's Pioneer Spec Gear. (Spec 1 Pre/Spec 2 Power). My questions are: Am I crazy ? Is that a fair price ? Will it be worth it ? Would my money be better spent on somthing else ? Newer ? I know $1500 would get me somthing very decent of much newer status. But the look of this gear is simply Gorgeous, Unfortunately I can only base this purchase on looks, But I have an SA-8500 which is probably similar in terms of sound. Please let me know your thoughts.
  23. Hello everyone, I am looking at a Accuphase P500 in mint condition. However, I am aware that it's from 1985 as per Accuphase website. I know Accuphase have good build quality but 30years is a LONG TIME. What risks am I taking in buying something like this? Are there any repairers in Melbourne and how is parts availability? How much roughly should I budget for a service +/- parts? Thank you. DT
  24. Item: 1pair Dali DaCapo Ribbon Speakers. Vintage unknown but Dali top of line speaker from 1988 to 1992. New price then was ~$6k. Later full size ribbon speakers way more than that. I purchased these to do a full refurb, having heard these in 1992, wanted them, but could not afford back then. Started refurb, but the SQ was way better than my earlier speakers [ribbons from 400Hz & up] & after the crossovers were refreshed they stayed hooked up. Previous owner purchased new, was a classical music lover & sold them when he moved into a retirement home. I have used with a sub & electronic crossover. My project would have been similar to John Reekie's minidsp & 2 way fully active. But I never started after buying 2 spare ribbons. I was happy listening to these as they were. These still kick arse in SQ with original ribbon drivers. Beth Hart "Your Heart is as Black as Night" is rendered with a lot of impact and raw emotion. Suit a vintage hifi system or some one wanting audiophile grade ribbon speakers on a budget. So cheap but have to go. Unfortunately my wife wants the space back & the second pair of speakers must go & does not care if either the Maggies or the Dalis go, so long as back to one pair. I could live with either. I have a Bryston 2B Power Amp to suit with first dibs to the buyer. Location: Sydney Price Drop: $1,200 to $1,000 including 2 spare ribbons in sealed vials I purchased for the full refurb for $400 for the pair. These replacement ribbons when installed will last another 25 years. Dali still have spare parts. Item Condition: Ribbons & woofers fully functional, but one ribbon has been repaired. Crossover capacitors refreshed 1 year ago. Ribbon grill cloth could do with a refresh. If you know how to put on a pair of stockings then you should be capable of replacing the grey ribbon cloth. There is one 5 mm diameter nick out of the lower LHS ribbon panel. It is small, although it looks huge in the close up photo. Close to the floor & hardly noticeable. Black grill cloth fine on woofer box. Metal base is fine as is both of the aluminium top bars. The RHS amplifier connectors have been replaced with Jaycar gold/brass connectors on the copper bars connecting to the ribbon and woofer speakers. The photos show reflection from the flash for the woofer membrane & the ribbon but in normal light these are difficult to see. Reason for selling: Upgraded, wife wants these gone to reclaim the sun room. I cannot justify another set of ribbon speakers PM me if you have any questions or would like an audition. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: 1. Due to weight (30kg) & size, expensive to ship. I do not have suitable boxes to pack, so pick up only 2. Prepared to swap for a power amp. These are smaller PM with offer. Brochure here http://www.dali-spea...ALI-DaCapo.aspx [Danish] Manual attached - an interesting read & no longer on the Dali website. Drivers: Woofer - 10" X 40" membrane driven by 8" woofer - to match the dispersion characteristics of the ribbon near the crossover frequency Midrange/tweeter - 40" ribbon Frequency Response - 45 - 20kHz +/- 4dB Crossover Frequency: 400Hz Sensitivity (2.83V) - 85dB @ 1m Recommended amplifier - 50 to 200W / channel [easy to drive as the ribbon is 4ohm & not capacitive nor inductive] Dimensions Height - 118cm Depth (inc. base) - 31cm Depth (exc. base) - 15cm Width - 45cm Weight - 30kg each Pictures: Images attached Attached Thumbnails Attached Files DALI_DACAPO.pdf 607.97KB 9 downloads
