NAGAOKA MP series cartridges & Well Tempered Labs Phono stages package deals.Nagaoka cartridges

We love the sound of vinyl and what better way to do this than by combining the wonderful Nagaoka MP series cartridges with the pure analogue goodness of the Well Tempered Phono stages. With 5 cartridges and three phono stages to choose from you can transform your record listening experience.

The Well Tempered RIAA  is the perfect foil for the Nagaokas – it’s MM only so designed specifically to make the most of these models taking everything we like about the MP series and magnifying it. The better Well Tempered ‘Phono Stage’ is just astonishing – as good as the RIAA is, the Phono Stage works at a completely different level with far more detail, even lower surface noise and a much stronger output.

Here are some suggestions. 

NAGAOKA MP110 + Cambridge Solo $525 – Save $125

NAGAOKA MP150 + Well Tempered Labs RIAA $1200 – Save $260

NAGAOKA MP200 + RIAA $1350 – Save $290

NAGAOKA MP200 + WTL Phono Stage $2600 – Save $480

We’re more than happy to mix things up a bit for you – you may need some good quality analogue interconnects for either the phono stage or your turntable and I’ll carefully fit and set up any of these cartridges on your own turntable. The new Cambridge Solo ($295) is another really good low cost phono stage choice we have on hand.

And the Dynavector below should also be considered – it’s mid-way between the two Well Tempered models in terms of MM performance.

Dynavector P75 MK4 – current model –  trade in – $900 (save $350 on new).

The Dynavector P75 Mk4 phono stage.

New Zealand’s most popular phono stage by far with exceptional performance that just keeps getting better – the new Mk4 version being easily the best yet.

In absolutely as new condition and ready to go for any MC or MM cartridge (presently set up in PE mode for the DV20X2).

There are very few better phono stages for any money (OK – we do have them but at more than twice the price). Read about the P75 hereOriginally sold new by us with original packaging, power supply and 12 month warranty.

Tivoli Model One Cherry/silver

Tivoli Radios

We’ve recently had several clients upgrade their Tivoli radios to the new Music System BT . In all cases they have cared for their radios and they are both in excellent working order and condition.

Model One Classic – cherry silver finish.SOLD

Model 2 Stereo radio (includes second speaker & all cables) – cherry silver finish. $250

Model CD – cherry silver to match either of above. The CD player is hard to get so jump on this one while you can – all checked and running nicely, cables, power supply and manual included. $250.

New – Optoma NuForce MCA 18 – 8 channel Power amplifier $1200 (was $1795)

The NuForce Home Cinema components were (and still are) quite unique in their uncompromised sound quality and simplicity of design.

The Optoma NuForce MCA-18 is effectively 4 stereo amplifiers in a single box – the modules used are based on the well proven STA-100 stereo power amplifier and it’s all run by a single high capacity switched mode power supply – there is a huge amount of real power here is a surprisingly slim and cool running box.MCA18-lg.jpg

The sound is classic NuForce – rich and detailed. Even just two of the eight channels running in stereo are hard to beat. There are 4 primary uses for this power amplifier – and you can also combine them…

1. Stereo music and bi-amping. If you have bi-wired speakers it’s easy to use 4 of the 8 channels into a single pair of speakers. Some speakers can even be tramped which is better again.

2. Multi-room. If you have 4 rooms with 4 pairs of speakers and the cables all coming back to a single point, this is your amplifier. Teams with either 4x Apple Airports Express units or even better 4x D-Stream Primos HDs for wicked whole house sound and full control via your smart phone.

3. Oppo and Cambridge Blueray players – most of these have multiple analogue outputs and remote volume control so you can combine the MCA-18 directly with them and enjoy sparkling and powerful home cinema with up to 8 separate speakers.

4.  Upgrading most home theatre receivers – AVRs (Audio Video Receivers) are almost without fail have power amplifier sections are horribly compromised in both sound quality and real power. If yours has pre out sockets – many do – you can add the NuForce MCA-18 and experience and instant and substantial upgrade.

The ‘Optoma NuForce’ branding reflects the newer generation of this amplifier as Optoma have purchased a large chunk of the Nuforce line – cinema and earphone products while the higher end section has become NuPrime (yes, it’s confusing). Even more so with NuPrime now introducing a new and more costly line of multichannel amplifier options – the MCX series which are very much based on the work originally done with the MCA-18.

This amplifier is sold as new.

KLEI High End Analogue interconnects.

Some clients just can’t help themselves and once the experience Keith Eichmann’s amazing cables they just keep going up the range to get even better performance – we’ve got two sets of 1m interconnects that have come in and although I’m just as happy to keep them in our own system, we really should put them out there again.

KLEI interconnect cable

The zFlow33s are the predecessor  of the current zPurity88 interconnectsthey have a huge rich sound – it’s immediately obvious that they are substantially better than our new stock Purity 8s which go for NZ$2000 the pair. The combination of better Harmony plugs and a visibly more complex and heavier construction make this so. In short, there is only one better sounding cable we have ever heard – the KLEI zPurity 888s which is what trade in has enabled.

You can have these fantastic cables – fully run in and in excellent condition for just $1800 a pair.

Image result for monitor audio WT 150 LCR

Monitor Audio WT-150 LCR in walls. These are very cool in-walls. Much like my favourite Monitor Audio speaker – the Studio, these have the d’Apolito layout with bass/mid drivers on either side and a central tweeter – all metal coned C-Cam drivers. This system is great for projecting sound out into the room and it’s very much a truism that two are better than one when it comes to bass drivers. The performance is right up there with the Bronze 2s we’ve just detailed.

One pair only at $600 (normally $900 the pair)
