Used – Planar 3

SOLD

Want to own a small piece of turntable history?

This is a prime example of Rega’s benchmark record player, the Planar 3. Vinyl enthusiasts’ ears will prick up at the mention of the iconic if not legendary RB 300 tone arm, which is here in fabulous condition and as standard on this deck.

Not fitted as standard is the upgraded and hardwired high quality DNM power cable which was modified by ourselves giving the motor a much improved supply of power resulting in a far more stable rotation of the platter. The audible improvement due to this is a bigger soundstage and one with more finite instrumentation within it.

Last but by no means least, it comes with a vibrant yellow slip mat, we like it though some may not. If this is not to your taste we can supply a standard black mat at a small cost.

To enquire, you can drop by the shop, send us an e-mail or reach us by phone.

Ex Display Totem Arro

£950

Unfortunately one of these speakers has sustained some minor cosmetic damage, which the price reflects and should be visible from the photo above. The other is in perfect condition and together they function exactly as they should, sounding fantastic. There are three chips in the gloss finish, none of which reach the cabinet material, all could be filled and covered to make them blend in.

The Arro is an incredible loudspeaker and not only for it’s size but will stand up against a speaker of a much higher value, offering a rich sound stage with almost tangible depth. Such qualities usually only achievable with precise positioning and set up. Not in this case!

Due to very clever designers the Arro is able to create a stereo image when quite frankly ‘plonked’ in a room with little else being done with them. If set up equidistant it is very easy to get an engaging experience and due to their clever nature are able to be positioned very close to a rear or side wall without compromising the presentation.

Used – VPI Scout 2 Turntable

SOLD

Just arrived in, a lovely example of this great little deck.

The VPI Scout 2 is a wonderful neutral platform from which to play your records. Solid construction and typical American V8 engineering gives fantastic vibration isolation. This along with adjustable decoupling feet provides a splendid platform for the legendary JMW Memorial unipivot arm to track the grooves securely.

The neutral balance and fine arm allow for a wide range of cartridge types and allows the deck to throw a huge sound stage no matter what type of music you are enjoying. It has pace and dynamics which are hard to find in decks which are a lot more expensive. Fine tuning of the arm is easy as is the set up, placement equally so. The connection is made from the junction box at the rear of the deck enabling the use of many different cables. This can also be changed to XLR output for those with balanced phono stages. This particular deck has had Dynavector DrT XV -1s for it’s lifetime which I think speaks volumes for it’s ability.

One very careful owner from new, the Scout 2 comes with full packaging and accessories.

Please call for further details.
