[FS] TW Raven AC Turntable And Raven 10.5 Arm

    For sale is my TW Acustic Raven AC and Raven 10.5 Arm. Also included is the Yamada/Zanden mat specifically designed for TW tables, which I believe retailed for around £500 itself.

    Bought ex-dem by me in August 2016, the turntable is practically as new condition, moderately used, extremely well cared for in a pet/smoke free home.

    Shipping to be discussed. It's 3 boxes, and probably requires a pallet, but would be happy to travel to meet up within reason, or collection from Kent welcome !

    I believe deck is still current spec and retail for the combo is around £14k.

    Happy to provide more photos.

    Cartridge not included.

    Priced at £6,500
    BT only.

    Thanks for looking.

    Absolutely stunning and a complete bargain for someone. I'm a long term Raven AC3 owner myself and I've not found anything get close to it yet. I'd be interested in the tonearm/armboard/cartridge if you decide to split the package.

    Thanks for all the positive comments. Plenty of interest but still available.

    #lencotweaker. Hoping to sell as a package, but will certainly keep you in mind.

    Right now, would prefer not to split but that may change !
    I am based in Gillingham.

    badger748 Like en eel. But in reverse.

    Sensational !
    I remember mine that I had for many years.
    Lovely deck with a rock solid presentation - if only I had the space (and money) for another.
    What next for you after this I wonder …

    Hey Badger, I’ve considered pulling the ad several times, and still fear I will regret this decision ! It is indeed a wonderful thing - beautifully built and sounding.

    Jake gets the points. I’ve bought an AN TT3 to slot into what has become an all AN system.

    Cheers, Steve

    It's all just "stuff" when said and done Steve.
    I had a Raven, loved it, sold, it, bought something else. Survived, and it was no big deal in the greater scheme.
    I'm sure your AN TT3 will be fabulous.

    The mat when available was £300 in 2012. It is absolutely essential to use the mat on all TW turntables. Good luck with the new TT, but I would race both before deciding to part with the AC and the 10.5 tonearm.

    Is the mat still available Graham?

    It's no longer available from TW. It hasn't been for 8 years. You might be able to get one from Yamada-san but it won't have the TW logo on it. That is if he still makes it.
