    Shaun got one at a reasonable price considering the last one I saw advertised on CAM sold for $2500.

    Shaun is doing what I have been doing for a few years, and selling a few other components to finance a more superior component. Today, I sold a Pioneer A-8 integrated amplifier for $175. I didn't have any good pictures of the A-8 before I sold it. I took one picture of it, hastily, before handing it off to the buyer. I let the buyer test it for a week before taking payment.

    Hi Everyone! Sorry, so absorbed in the hunting of a decent TT i haven't been here for ages!

    Thank you for all of your comments, It was a long hard search, usually ending up with the TT i was after being sold before i had all the cash, or the seller changing his / her mind....

    This time i just went for it!!

    And yes my first task, after building a new shelf as this thing is a bit of a beast, is to change the cart! Either for the Ortofon V30, or i have an unopened Shure M97xe....

    Mrs PC is happy with the purchase, but i am not sure that she fully appreciates how big this thing is

    Just counting down the days until it is shipped from Germany!

    Have fun all

    I'd have taken that, Nando but I was already into getting my bike projects lined up for the year:

    I had one of those many years ago, got it at a pawn shop on Monroe Ave in Rochester for $20. It was decent until I blew the right channel somehow then it went into the garbage
