or sale is an Avid Volvere together with Origin Live tonearm Encounter Mk I. Rated conservatively 7/10 due to a tiny little scratch visible in a picture, scratces on the armboard (which would not be visible when an arm is mounted) and age. it's really hard to find the scratch but it's there . Tonearm is rated 8/10 although it looks perfect.
All necessary accessories are included, including record clamp--with two minor exceptions--the belt fixing tool, and the cork washer that should come with the Origin tonearm (I used a metal washer instead, but a little research shows that cork washers of the right size are readily available--even on Amazon, I think). I subbed in a 1.5 mm hex wrench with no issues and I will supply that.
I would prefer to sell the turntable together with the tonearm, but will separate if the turntable is sold first.
I do have original boxes for both items and manuals for the tonearm. I will print out a pdf of the Avid manual.
I purchased this recently when my other tonearm had to go in for repairs, and I got the whole package because I always wanted to give Avid a try. Beautiful design, and competes with my main rig, which retails for 3x the price (Kuzma,Thales).
Please see the link for a review of the Encounter tonearm--it is favorably compared to Pluto and Schroeder! It includes a dedicated phono cable that runs direct from the tonearm to the RCAs.
The whole system is easy to set up, and keeps its set up--it's not fiddly.
Happy to allow local pick up, but if you're intent on using Pay Pal, please be prepared to pay for the fee. Buyer to pay any shipping costs--two boxes would be involved.
