Balanced Audio Technology – VK-P10SE Tube Phono Preamplifier
SERIOUS ENHANCEMENTS RESULT IN SERIOUS SOUND A Special Edition version of BAT’s renowned VK-P10 phonostage, the VK-P10SE incorporates numerous engineering improvements to offer greater information retrieval and supreme musical presentation. The first gain stage is completely revised to provide a substantially lower noise floor. In addition, the reconfigured output stage incorporates four high-gain 6C45 tubes. They provide high-current and low-output impedance, establishing a superb level of drive and transparency. These enhancements result in a phonostage with improved silence in the quietest musical passages, unfettered dynamic ease, and grand sense of scale. Fully balanced, the VK-P10SE achieves the best-possible performance when the phono cartridge is used in a matching balanced configuration. UPGRADED POWER SUPPLY, EXTENSIVE FLEXIBILITY, DUAL SIX-PAKs The VK-P10SE boasts an all-tube zero-feedback design that combines the benefits of balanced operation with complementary vacuum-tube current sources. Dual-mono construction and enormous energy reserves are matched by extensive flexibility in cartridge loading. The first gain stage achieves a very low noise floor via premium Vishay Bulk FoilTM resistors that replace metal film resistors in critical areas. An upgraded power supply and dual SIX-PAKs of paper-in-oil output capacitors contribute more responsive, visceral bass. Vacuum-tube current sources further improve the linearity and yield a more open, textured sound. Here, dual 6SN7 vacuum tubes act as current sources for the second gain stage. FLYING RIAA NETWORK MEANS YOU HEAR LPs AS THE RECORDING ENGINEER INTENDED The VK-P10SE employs a differential RIAA network, permitting ease of adjustment and improved common mode noise rejection. Completely passive, this circuit has fewer components than a more traditional implementation. Such benefits translate into improved matching of the RIAA curve to specification. With the Flying RIAA network, you can be assured that all of your records sound the way that the recording engineer intended. And the VK-P10SE’s second-generation step-up transformers provide as much as a 20db improvement in signal-to-noise ratio in comparison to direct mode operation. With up to 80dB of gain available, there is no signal too small. Analog bliss awaits.

Sumiko Pro-Ject 2-Xperience Mahogany turntable w/ Grado Reference Cartridge
The Xperience Classic is a gorgeous turntable with high performance to match, setting a new standard of performance in this range. Every element of the Xperience was chosen to ride the fine line of excellent sound quality and elegant aesthetic, providing an unparalleled listening experience.
The 4.4Lb MDF platter is both massive and non-resonant and topped with Pro-Ject’s proprietary vinyl surface derived from melted down LPs. The platter is mated to a very low-noise spindle made from chrome-plated stainless steel which rests on a super-slick Teflon bearing plate with a durable bronze bearing housing. The thick MDF plinth is isolated from external noise via three height-adjustable Sorbothane damped aluminum cone shaped feet. Pro-ject created a new motor mount design for the Xperience Classic, the super-quiet motor is decoupled from the plinth eliminating unwanted vibration and resonance
The super-sexy carbon fiber Pro-Ject 9cc tonearm is a very unique arm created entirely from carbon fiber from the pivot point forward. This design eliminates micro-vibration allowing the arm to retrieve more detail and improving rhythm and pacing. The 9cc uses an inverted thrust bearing for superior linearity, hardened stainless points rest in ultra-smooth sapphire thrust pads for minimal friction. The 9cc offers easy VTA, Azimuth and overhang adjustments and like all Pro-Ject top-line tonearms features detachable RCA cables.
Detachable dust-cover is included.

Technics SL-1350 Direct-Drive Automatic Turntable w/ Ortofon VMS 20E MkII cartridge
Table performs well on the bench and looks good. The lid has scratches but no cracks.
Direct-drive performance and automatic changer convenience – that’s the unique combination of the SL-1350.
Because until now, high performance DD turntables were either manual or single play automatics and it was prevalently thought that record changers had to have comparatively inferior operating characteristics.
In our continuing efforts to meet the ever varying needs of serious audiophiles we have met this problem in an unordinary manner. Technics has combined the inherent superior operating characteristics of a direct drive motor with a precisely engineered multi disc changing mechanism.
The result is an innovative, automatic changer / turntable with wow / flutter and rumble figures which compare favorably with the finest manual belt driven turntables.
The SL-1350 also features automatic start, set down, return and shut off for a stack of up to six discs; a sensitive, gimbal suspended universal tonearm of longer length than average; an innovative Memo-Gram dial control that permits flexible programming for the number of records in the stack, for repeat play of a single side, or for a combination of record changing and repeat play; variable pitch controls; an integral strobe indicator / on-off lamp; an integral base; hinged, removable dust cover; and deluxe styling.
