Classic flat earth setup?

    Dowser Learning to bodge again..

    I made some expensive purchases a while back, just because I thought they were selling under market value;

    - NAC62/NAP 90 - CHF 350.- (£284) - supposed to be working, not tested yet. Think I'll get my money back?
    - LP12 with Ittok LV-II - CHF 630.- (£510) - sold as a faulty, Valhalla blown - owner sent it for repair, they ried to fix it, then sent it back as beyond economical repair. Luckily, I picked up a Valhalla for 20.- recently :D But probably best to separate arm and deck for max return?

    So, should I just check them over, swap the Valhalla, and re-sell them? Or actually listen to the Ittok first? :) I have a Mission 774 on my own LP12 ('77, Sole subchassis, DIY Geddon). NAC62 has obviously been opened as case is on wrong way round, and I've actually never heard a Naim power amp. I've some Royd Sintra IIs here, reckon they'd make a great combo?

    You need to flip the case round the right way on the 62. Chrome bumpers need to be seen. It is the law.

    PS I’d top that lot off with Kan IIs.

    Don't forget to drill bigger holes in your records to fit them on the platter

    Always nice to see a dinked-45 adapter on a 33rpm turntable…

    Get a couple of transistor radios. Much cheaper.

    Never ever use a weight on a Linn platter.

    OMG, that rules out my 180-200 g vinyls and the heavy rubber mat...

    A mat and vinyl aren't going to f*** your bearing.

    Well, I doubt that little cute weight weighs more than 200g… :)

    That cart could fetch as much as £3 on a good day:D

    I hadn’t noticed the prices, you got a real bargain there! Chances are the Valhalla needs nothing more than recapping which is a 20 minute job for anyone who knows which way up to hold a soldering iron. Basically you got that deck for the resale value of the Ittok alone! The Naims are a great buy too. You could likely double your money there too if they clean-up nicely. As ever buy low, sell high!

    PS I’d certainly clean them up and try them, potentially a great fun 80s retro system.

    the ad mention “basic cart fitted” :)

    It likely was a Basik originally, both the same budget AT body, the Linn version costing more and having a worse stylus! You have an AT95E stylus fitted.

    PS The thing on the platter is a ‘dinked’ 7” 45 adapter, not a record weight. Why it is there is most odd given the Valhalla can’t play 45s!

    Always getting nervous when people do such horrible stacking

    did you notice rear feet of LP12 are hanging off back of amps? Hey - I’m limited for space all the ****ing Hi-Fi I have :)

    Thanks - thought it was a weight, it came with a horrible 33-44rpm Linn adaptor for the pulley :)
