The RP8 is the first of our new “skeletal” design turntables offering groundbreaking levels of performance and amazing value for money. The RP8 will also be available with its perfect partner, the Apheta moving coil cartridge, factory fitted as a package option.TTPSU power supplyThe compact TT-PSU uses a high stability, crystal locked, low distortion sine wave generator. This, along with an efficient drive amplifier fed from a stabilised DC power supply, generates a 24V AC balanced signal of less than 0.05% distortion, which is completely un-affected by any changes in the mains/line voltage and conditions. This then drives the improved Rega anti-vibration circuit built into the RP8 motor PCB. ON SALE NOW FOR ONLY $2,895.00 (New Retail is $4,995.00)

Esoteric P-700 CD Transport (World Class Transport)

 High-precision mechanism featuring VRDS. In our newly developed Vibration-Free Rigid Disc Clamping System mechanism, the slightly concave turntable is above the disc which is held against it by upward pressure exerted by a large-diameter disc clamper, for higher stability. This new disc clamping system, with the disc held tightly between the turntable which has the same diameter as the disc and a precisely aligned clamper, corrects any  warping or eccentricity of the disc, so that the microscopic pits are always traced accurately by the center beam of the laser pickup. Another advantage of the system is that it minimizes any undesirable vibrations of the disc. Unit comes with original packaging and remote and ON SALE NOW FOR ONLY $385.00

Mark Levinson 380 State of the Art Preamplifier

This is the pre-amp in the 2-channel Music side of any high end system., it is very transparent and natural sounding, it really pleases me.

The ML is a preamp that does the extremely well. Controls are simple and straight forward, Very easy user interface. and comes wuth remote supplied remote.  The sound of this preamp is very natural,  not colored.

Classic Garrard 401 MKII (Turntables by Jean Nantais)

For sale is Jean's latest creation. The Garrard 401 itself is in excellent condition as can be seen, and has been rebuilt and restored to dead quietness, rivalling the best belt-drives, via techniques used to earn an Upper Class A rating for his Reference Lencos by Salvatore and by other reviewers.  It includes the rare North American 60 Hz 401 platter with working strobe light and so is fully functional. It includes a new TJN thrust plate, sonically superior to other after-market thrust plates and which does not wear the Garrard main bearing shaft, and which greatly improves detail, bass, imaging, clarity, etc.  Included also are new Bearpaw footers which also improve the sound, and a new Herbie's mat, which is sonically suited to the Garrards, extracting the best sonic balance. The plinth is finished in a special hand-made veneer, from a form of maple, an accidental creation of nature which cannot be found elsewhere (Jean bought up the entire supply), which he calls "chocolate chip maple".  It is designed for 12" tonearms. Price of this Garrard package with a new 12-inch Jelco SA-750LB tonearm and Nagaoka MP-500 cartridge, a match made in heaven, is $8,000.00CAD, and can be auditioned.

Cambridge Audio Azur 840C CD Player Transport (Excellent)

For sale is a very clean Cambridge Audio Azur 840C CD Player Transport. Music through the 840C had an organic “rightness” and fundamental musicality that’s hard to describe. I heard a sonic coherence that translated to an enhanced ability to hear into the music and understand it more deeply. This was partly the result of the 840C’s remarkable ability to keep individual instrumental lines distinct, and partly because of the player’s tremendous sense of ease, smoothness, and liquidity. This player is amazingly free from midrange glare (often manifested on the leading edges of piano notes) and metallic hardness in the treble. Despite the 840C’s utter grace and ease, the player is tremendously good at resolving fine detail. This rare combination of ease and resolution is an important factor in musical involvement and long-term listening satisfaction. All original packaging and remote and ON SALE NOW FOR ONLY $699.00

Rega DAC (Brand New)

Rega uses a straightforward approach with no upsampling. Terry Bateman, Rega’s digital designer, said, “I wanted to keep the signal path to a minimum.  We didn’t use upsampling with the Saturn or the ISIS, and I wanted to follow the same spirit of these units.  Those users with a high-quality sound card can upsample there if they prefer.  The Wolfson WM8805 and WM8742 chips running at the incoming sample rates do a great job on their own, along with a nice drop of  “old school audio mojo.” The Rega DAC also shares its buffer circuitry with the Rega CD players, which has been one of the aspects of their design that has been overbuilt from the beginning. Rega’s CD players have a much larger buffering capacity than most, adding to the natural sound. This unit is a display model only never used and in new condition and ON SALE NOW FOR ONLY $600.00

Carver M-400 Silver Series 200W of Pure Dynamite

If you are browsing this listing, then you know what you are looking for - the Carver M-400!  This model is the generation of the famous M-400 series "cube" amps Bob Carver produced.  "The design for this amp was inspired by a clock he (Bob) saw at Tiffany's in the shape of a lustrous golden cube, which gave him the notion of trying to build a high-powered amplifier in a similar package." (1) The M-400 has the "Silver-finish" where trademark of all the ancestor models are the much older original M-400 and then the M-400a "Silver-finish" series.  Carver's goal with the M-400 models was making these amps sound more "tube-like" sounding. Power rating is a solid 200W per channel into 8ohm loads and ON SALE NOW FOR ONLY $300.00

ELIPSON MUSIC CENTER & PLANET L LOUDSPEAKERS (New)

Elipson’s Planet L spherical speakers make quite the design statement in any room. These are no mini spheres; they’re big old eyeballs, as many a visitor to S+I HQ called them — the sphere diameter is 29cm, and they seem even bigger. When combined with their accompanying silver cylinder-section of a Music Center (sic), you have a complete and simple system. There is much detail to talk about here, which may make things sound clever and complex, and you can certainly option it up with additional equipment, as did we. But this remains one for the aesthetes, in terms of having just that beautifully-styled cake-tin control unit combining built-in amplification with CD player, digital radio and streaming sources, and then those spherical speakers with their surprisingly heavy stands that hide the cables within. You can clear out the rest of the house, and relax. Because while things may look fab, this is not a triumph of design over performance. The sphere is a good shape for hi-fi. Things are great all over. Please drop by our shop for an audition and check out the surprisingly affordable modern audio system!
