  1. Pear Audio Blue turntables, which have been extensively reviewed in Stereophile and elsewhere, are based on the engineering and design thinking of the late Tom Fletcher of Nottingham Audio. The Pear designs reflect Fletcher’s "final" ideas for improving on what he did with Nottingham as he handed the torch to Pear Audio. Like Nottingham tables, the Pear uses a low-torque motor; you start the platter spinning with a small push and brake it to a stop with your hand. Quite cool! The Robin Hood (list $1,995) is their least expensive table, but it is a superb performer. Mine is fitted with their Cornet 2 arm ($2,195), Pear’s most expensive tonearm. I am the original owner. The system has had limited use in the three years I have had it but has performed superbly. The shipping boxes are in so-so shape, but otherwise everything is excellent. The photos show an Ortofon Quintet Black MC cartridge ($995), which is not for sale, but if you really want it, we can discuss. The turntable and arm combo cost $4,190. I am motivated to sell, so I will consider reasonable offers. Shipping costs and PayPal fees are negotiable. US sale only, local sale (SF Bay Area) ideal. Thanks for looking. Dan
  2. For sale is pair of Harbeth P3ESR SE speakers, Harbeth's latest version of the venerable BBC LS3/5a, though these sound much more modern and better than the classics. This matched pair is from a limited release Special Edition that includes Studio Grade Ultra-Pure OFC Cable and they are in the premium (extra cost) Rosewood finish. They are gorgeous, like pieces of furniture. I am the original owner and the speakers are in near-new condition with no scratches that I can see. Grills are immaculate. All factory packaging (ships in single box for the pair) and documentation is included. Shipping charges and PayPal fees, if any, negotiable. Reasonable offers considered. U.S. sale only. Thanks for looking. Dan
  3. Selling my Uptone Audio USB Regen in perfect shape with all packaging and components. Shipping (CONUS only) and PayPal included at my asking price.
  4. Audiophilleo2 in Gray, serial # 01710. Complete with all adapters and full factory packaging. Original owner. Original cost $579. Asking $225, Paypal and shipping negotiable. USA only.
  5. For sale is a BADA Alpha USB, the premier USB to S/PDIF converter on the market. This unit works perfectly and is in very good condition cosmetically. Comes with User Guide and original factory packaging. New $1895, asking $1175. Paypal and shipping negotiable, USA only.
  6. Excellent -- thanks. I've ordered one and will give it a try with the second FMC (the one just before the microRendu). Dan
  7. Agree with all the rave reviews. After years of playing with DACs, software and cables, the microRendu was the biggest improvement I had ever had with computer audio. The LPS-1 powering it seems to be a similarly huge leap. Major kudos to John and Alex. i had been thinking that I should replace the Mac Mini wth a dedicated server solution, but now I wonder if these Uptone products have made that unneccessary. Dan
