Second Hand – Rega RP3 + Eyls 2 + Performance Drive Belt

SOLD

It’s always nice to see an old friend! We sold this RP3 to one of our customers three years ago and now its back with us looking for a new home.

The Planar 3, RP3, P3 or whatever you would like to call it has been Rega’s bench mark from the start and remains their best selling deck, and for good reason.

A simple elegant design with a robust tone arm (RB303), featuring a vastly more rigid and tapered design for superior strength and rigidity for improved resonance control. Also a feature of the RP3 is top and bottom bracing which links the two bearings, keeping them aligned and true to each other and finally a solid 12mm glass platter that helps maintain smooth and consistent rotations.

The cartridge plays fine, it’s three years old but has plenty of life left in it, moreover the level of cartridge the RP3 can can get the most from far exceeds the Eyls 2 though that’s another conversation…

This deck comes with a performance drive belt fitted, but has no original packing. If delivery is essential, have a chat with us and we will be able to sort something out. It will also leave our shop fully serviced.

Used Moon 110LP Phono pre-amp (3 months old!)

SOLD

Dont let this compact unit fool you, it can make a huge difference in your vinyl playback. When released the 110LP was a huge leap forward in performance for an affordable phono pre-amplifier.

Derived from the technology used in the ever successful 310LP, the 110LP has all the qualities you would expect from the Moon range, fast and tight low frequencies with an open mid range and ethereal high frequencies. Constructed from military grade components and ultra short signal paths that greatly reduce the signal to noise ratio, the 110LP is the perfect upgrade choice for those who wish to get that bit more from their vinyl collection.

Containing this well rounder package is a super rigid all aluminium chassis, helping to reduce unwanted frequencies. Finished with a brushed and anodised face plate to top of this cracking piece of kit with a touch of style.

Comes fully boxed in original packaging.

Used Track Audio Precision Speaker Stands

£925 (£1695)

You can’t have too much stability in life, for instance you wouldn’t build a house with weak foundations… well the same goes for your Hi-fi!

We are letting go a pair on precision speaker stands from Track Audio, which can transform the way your monitors can perform and the way you set them up.

Every music system deals with sound waves and often you are faced with unwanted resonance and vibration. It has been the mission of the people at Track Audio to eliminate such frequencies to let your speakers reach their potential. These are hand built and use Track Audio’s signature isolation feet; a unique design with a locking sprung ball and click mechanism allowing easy and repeatable adjustments and experimentation with tilt for fine tuning phase coherence, as well as a glass spirit level on each for leveling and to ensure that your adjustments are exact. The pillar construction is also worth taking note of, individual segments machined from high grade aluminium to allow you to customise the height of the stand as well as a layer of dampening material in between each one.

As they would directly from Track Audio, this pair includes a full set of spike protectors for the use on hard floors.

If this kind of upgrade is of interest to you get in touch with us by e-mail or phone or better, by visiting us in the shop and to see them for your self.

If the full stands are not what you’re looking for, the potential to enhance your loudspeaker’s performance is still achievable as Track Audio do a full range of products in select sizes to help reach their peak.

Ex Display KEF R400b Sub Woofer

SOLD

Another one to fly the nest is our now ex demonstration KEF R400b sub woofer in high gloss black. Its been well loved and well looked after from new, ideal for any home stereo or cinema system that needs additional depth or boost in the lower frequencies.

Containing two 9″ low frequency drivers in a reinforced and sealed cabinet measuring 14″ cubed so a compact unit but by no means a compact sound. The drivers are mounted back to back which creates and ‘force cancelling’ effect, resulting in little cabinet movement thus providing a fast, clean and powerful performance. This unit comes in all original packaging so is able to be sent if pickup is not possible.

If this is the addition your system needs, swing by the shop or failing that get in touch via e-mail or phone.

Ex Display KEF R500 Speakers

£850 (originally £1500.00)

We are letting a pair of our demonstration loudspeakers go! Therefore you can be confident that they have been very well cared for. These KEF R500 floor-standers are in pristine condition, as their black high gloss finish will show.

The smallest floor-standing loudspeakers in the R range from KEF, though  sharing features found in the higher ranges such as the Reference series and the might Blade! The Uni Q driver is one such feature, combining a 25mm vented dome tweeter in the center of a 125mm aluminium mid frequency drive unit. As far as bass units are concerned, you have two 30mm concave aluminium drivers (rear ported) which deliver startling punch and speed giving tightness and control to lower frequencies.

As expected these meticulously designed loudspeakers create a large, focused and detailed stereo image, separating different elements of the chosen ensemble with clarity and due to their compact size, they will perform well relatively close to a rear wall.

What more would you need? Visit us in the shop to see them, or if any further information is required do not hesitate to contact us via telephone or e-mail.
