This rare Galibier Design Gavia was received in trade.

On average, we see one Mk I Gavia every 12 months, but this is the first one we've received in over two years.

Note:  the annotated photo is of the currently available Gavia.  The remaining photos show previous turntables, to demonstrate finishing options. 

We would grade the cosmetics as a 7/10 - 8/10.

The baseline price is $7,795.  Details about customization and upgrades are on our "Specials" page (click here).  Use this contact link to discuss options with us.

Pair your Gavia with one of the 8 tonearms we carry at a price that's too low to advertise.

We carry tonearms from 8 designers and 7 cartridge manufacturers - including Kuzma, Schröder, Durand, and much more.

This turntable is in the process of being re-manufactured to functionally, new condition:

  1. Bearing rebuild to 2022 standard
  2. Current drive system, complete with Teddy Pardo power supply.

Additionally, we have an a la carte list of options we can make for you based on your preferences.  The upgrades include:

  1. Refinishing to your specification.
  2. Machine Mk 1.5 tonearm cavity for compatibility with Mk 1.5 armboards.
  3. Replace graphite TPI top layer with carbon fiber.

Note that the carbon fiber TPI top plate is sonically equivalent to the current graphite top plate.  This is a cosmetic change, and not a functional one. 

For details about the Mk 1.5 armboard upgrade, click this link.

Insured shipping via FedEx Ground.

Questions, Ordering and Payment Options:

Contact us directly (click this link) and we'll work directly with you from specification, through invoicing, and payment.

Payment can be made by PayPal, major credit cards, check (with time to clear) and of course, old fashioned cash.

Consistent with Audiogon dealer guidelines, we'll work directly with you to ensure you make the right choice for your system.

Delivery times vary depending on the product. All of our cables are built to order and our power and speaker cables receive an extended burn-in, so factor that in to your delivery expectations.
