    Offered here is an upgraded power supply for certain Rega turntables, which I purchased new about five years ago. It is in perfect working condition and was in use in my system as recently as yesterday, as you can see from the photos. It allows you to change platter speeds without removing the platter and changing the belt; the red Rega image indicates 33.3 RPM and the green 45 RPM. I replaced the stock rubber feet with Sorbothane footers. The original turntable cable and owner's manual are included. Included in the offer is a Swagman Labs power supply designed for the TT-PSU. It is about four years old, and was also purchased new. Important notes: 1. Important: The TT PSU can only be used with the RP3, P3-24, P5 and P7 turntables. It is not compatible with any other Rega or manufacturers' turntables. 2. The original Rega wall wart that powered the TT-PSU is not included. 3. USPS Priority Mail shipping to US addresses is included in the price. Manufacturers' descriptions: Rega TT-PSU The TTPSU and motor anti-vibration circuit is a combination of the long established P9 power supply along with an improved RP6 anti-vibration motor drive feeding a 24V AC synchronous motor. The TTPSU uses a remote "wall wart" transformer therefore keeping the sources of hum & noise well away from sensitive parts such as the cartridge and phono leads. The compact TTPSU uses exactly the same high stability crystal locked low distortion sine wave generator as is used in the heart of the P9 power supply. This, along with an efficient drive amplifier fed from a stabilized DC power supply, generates a 24V AC balanced signal of less than 0.1% distortion, which is completely un-affected by any changes in the mains/line voltage and conditions. This then drives the turntables antivibration circuit, which is situated beneath the turntable. The drive voltage for the motor is run along the power lead to the turntable motor, which also carries the 33 1/3/45-RPM DC relay control voltage used to activate the antivibration circuit. Includes TT-PSU, 1-meter interconnect to turntable. Dimensions: 7" w x 2" h x 5.5" d Weight: 1 lb 5 oz Swagman Lab Power Supply Features The low-noise toroidal transformer increases the output current capability. EMI filter takes place as a result of suppressing RFI noise in the system subjected to electromagnetic interferences. It's a perfect upgrade for the Rega Turntable TT PSU, and offers significant improvement in sound quality. The power supply is equipped with a 2-foot high quality cable made of OFC copper insulated wires. A lockable circular socket and plug is selected for guaranteed consistent performance. WrA flexible nylon mesh provides a neat and tidy finish. Includes 2-foot braid-covered DC cable, 6-foot 120-vAC cord. Mounted on Sorbothane feet. Specifications Input : 110-120VAC Output Voltage: 24 vAC Output Current : 1.5A Cabinet : Aluminium case Dimensions : 8.6" w x 2.3" h x 7.5" d Weight : 3 lbs 14 oz

    Offered here is a complete set of parts used to upgrade a wall outlet serving your audio system. I bought these through Amazon in September of last year, but have since reconfigured my system and only need one (identically equipped) outlet. The small screws in the photo are used to attach the "ears" on the receptacle to the wall plate. The two, long stainless-steel screws are used to mount the wall plate to the stud on one side or the other of the junction box holding the receptacle. The result of all this is a very firmly mounted outlet! The rhodium plating on the receptacle is thought to be the most conductive metal surface available. The receptacle accepts both back-wiring and conductors wrapped around the screws, but be advised that getting 12 AWG conductors to fit around the screws is challenging. As always, do not attempt any job with 120-volt household wiring unless you know what you are doing! USPS Priority Mail shipping to US addresses is included in the price. Manufacturer's description and individual prices, both from current Amazon.com listings, are given below: Furutech GTX-D NCF(R) Ultimate Nano-Crystal Rhodium-Plated AC Duplex Receptacle $218.99 RATING: GTX-D NCF(R) - 20A 125V. Furutech’s Top-Tier GTX–D NCF Receptacles...Refinement has a New Name... Nano Crystal² Formula (NCF) - Nano Crystalline, Ceramic and Carbon Powder Incorporated into select Furutech products, Nano Crystal² Formula --- NCF is comprised of a special crystalline material that has two “active” properties. First, it generates negative ions that eliminate static and secondly, it converts thermal energy into far-infrared. Furutech then combines this remarkable crystalline material with nano-sized ceramic particles and carbon powder for their additional “Piezo Effect” damping properties. The resulting Nano Crystal² Formula is the ultimate electrical and mechanical damping material – only found in Furutech products! The Pure Transmission Mission: The GTX-D NCF manifests a devotion to best performance in every element of AC and signal transfer. Considering that what you actually hear is in a very real sense the direct product of the incoming AC then the final few feet are of prime importance for best performance. Of course everyone would love to make pure-copper receptacles, but its malleability – lack of stiffness – makes pure copper a poor choice. That’s why you’ll find phosphor bronze or brass in most receptacles. Furutech’s intense engineering scrutiny has resulted in an industry-first, a technique allowing us to use special Furutech rhodium-plated α (Alpha) pure copper conductors strengthened and sprung by our innovative nonmagnetic Stainless Steel Conductor Spring System that keeps a firm grip yet won’t damage male connector blades or their plated surfaces. But what really sets the GTX-D NCF receptacle apart is “NCF” – Furutech’s ultimate damping material - Nano Crystal² Formula eliminates static, “interconverts” thermal, mechanical and electrical energy and damps vibrations. The GTX-D NCF can be summed up in a word: virtuoso! ______________________________________________________________________________________ Furutech GTX Receptacle Wall Plate Frame Made from CNC Aluminum $129.00 • Beautifully crafted special grade aluminum CNC processed chassis effectively shields against RFI (Radio Frequency Interference). • Material thickness: chassis plate 13.0mm • Finished with an extremely effective non-resonant coating. • Suitable for use with GTX-D or GTX-S receptacle and 104-D or 104-S carbon fiber finished cover. Dimensions: 135.0mm (L) x 86.0mm (W) x 13.0mm(H) -0/+0.3mm _________________________________________________________________________________________________ Furutech 106-D NCF Non-Magnetic Nano-Crystal Carbon-Fiber Outlet Cover $160.00 106-D NCF Top-of-the-line Receptacle Cover. High End Performance NCF Damper Outlet Cover NCF Damper Outlet Cover 106-D NCF is Furutech’s “Top of the line” Receptacle Cover.

    Offered here is a set of three IsoAcoustics Orea series Bronze (8-lb each capacity) equipment footers. I purchased them new from an Amazon vendor last August and was using them under a power conditioner, since replaced by a newer unit which does not require them. You'll see scuff marks on the rubber surfaces from where the equipment was sitting, but I don't believe this will have any impact on performance. The total weight of the component you place on the three footers should not exceed 24 lbs, according to the manufacturer. There is an excellent set of Q&As on the manufacturer's website. These devices have been well reviewed and I use them under my phono stage and preamp as well. Original packaging (which is beautiful) is included. Here's a review from Stereophile. USPS Priority Mail postage to US addresses is included in the price. Manufacturer's description: Eliminates parasitic vibrations and provides greater sound clarity and focus. The OREA’s are ideal for electronic components including Amplifiers, DAC’s, CD Players, Speakers, and Turntables. Made of machined stainless steel, these isolators have a low-profile design to minimize any increase in height. Each OREA model is designed with a different weight capacity. They each have a coloured ring on the bottom isolator that denotes the model and weight capacity. The OREA series are packaged individually to allow greater flexibility when determining the number of units to use. We recommend a minimum of 3 units under each component, depending on weight. The upper flange of the OREAs is designed to provide a suction-cup-like effect and adhere to the underside of the component, while the lower flange adheres to the supporting surface. All the energy is managed within the core of the OREAs, which are tuned to work within specific weight ranges. This results in greater sound clarity and a more open soundstage providing authentic, three-dimensional sound. The existing feet on an audio component may connect well and fit nicely around the perimeter of the OREA isolator. Alternatively, you may get better performance by either removing the feet entirely or placing the OREA’s beside the existing feet to have them connect directly to the chassis or base of the component. Weight Capacity The weight capacity per OREA isolator is as follows: OREA Bronze - 8 pounds (3.6 KG) per isolator The OREA’s are designed to be used in multiples to match the weight of the component or speaker. The total weight capacity is calculated as follows: Total Weight Capacity = [Weight cap. per isolator] x [Qty of Isolators]
