Downsizing my audio system, and my vinyl setup must go. I've already let go of my K&K Audio Maxxed Out Phono stage. My Technics SP-10 MKII table now must go to a good home.
I bought the table itself about 8 years ago from a private seller in the UK. It was not a BBC or other commercially-used table. I had the seller send it to Dave Cawley (of soundhifidotcom), who lived nearby and was still professionally refurbishing the SP-10s. Dave brought it fully up to specs.
2 years ago I was very fortunate to buy a new power supply manufactured by Peter Noerbaek of PBN Audio, one of the direct drive turntable experts. Power cord is a Blue Circle BC-62.
At about the same time I sent the SP-10 to Bill Thalmann at Music Technology in Virginia for the Krebs Upgrade. He installed a new Torlon 4301 bearing shaft thrust cap (sold for a short time by theanalogdeptdotcom, who long since sold out of their supply). Bill also upgraded some parts on the control board and added an LED strobe light bulb in the original orange color.
The plinth is the "Obsidian Inspired Bespoke Plinth System" from Acoustand Audio in the UK. I have two armboards, one blank and one drilled for 12 inch Origin Live arms. Acoustand sells spare armboards that they can drill for your tonearm. The feet are "Type 1 Height Adjustable Isolating Feet" from Kridon Pantelli in the UK. He had manufactured a run of these feet in Delrin at the time I bought the plinth, so I had Acoustand replace the standard plinth feet with them. They look and function great. I'm including a bag of Nitrile rubber O-rings these feet use, in case they ever need replacement.
I am also including the two turntable mats I used: a pure copper replica of the Micro Seiki CU-180 that Peter Noerbaek linked us to a while back on an Audiogon Analog thread, topped with a TT Weights Supreme carbon fibre/kevlar composite/cork mat with mirror-like finished epoxy top coat. The combination is great, and either mat could be used alone. I'm also sending a TT Weights lightweight aluminum clamp that sounded much better than any heavier weights/clamps I tried. Also sending a Gem Dandy "PolyCover" platter dustcover and the Technics remote control SH-10R (start/stop switch on the motor unit works perfectly).
The motor unit has been professionally stripped and re-painted with black automotive paint by Al at Royalcraft.
I am also sending a custom, 30 lb solid Myrtlewood turntable isolation platform from Waipuna Sound (24"" x 17" x 3"). I have properly secured the motor with an original Technics shipping bracket.
This is about as good an SP-10 setup as one can find.
Ships in 3 large boxes so I must add a flat $125 for shipping (much less than actual shipping and insurance cost). Ships to USA lower 48 states only.
Thanks for looking!
The Origin Live tonearm pictured is not included. It has already been sold.
