  Graft / Micro Seiki carbon fiber 13 inch Descadel wires 

 The arm was fitted on my table directly to RCA plugs I can use cables of my choice. I purchased the arm for Italian custom MONOlite table 5 years ago and used it in and out for at least half a year. Out of the closet and quite dusty as you can see. The table is gone and no need for arm now. 

 The arm is great tracker, very quiet and has sound stage wider than any of the arms I've heard. When I first installed it I got the impression that some of the instruments are playing on my balcony and in a hallway. I actually experimented opening the balcony and close to see how it changes the sounds.

I have box, but no base or papers or original cable.

Lector Phono Amplifier MM/MC
 Lector Italian made reference all tube phono preamp with separate power supply for sale. 
Reference ALL tube circuitry class A system phono preamplifier accepts moving magnet and moving coils cartridges. The phono preamplifier have two separate input selectable by user. A separate power supply provides a very low noise operation so the moving coil input have a great S/N ratio. Moving coil input have direct triode operation without the low  performance of transformer step-up device. A great moving coil gain ( 66 db) can accept cartridge as low as  0.1 mV output

The Phono Amp-System  is a complete phono RIAA with all tubes preamplifier that operate on class A without any local or total feedback circuity.  This preamplifier provide the right amplification and equalization to the RIAA standard  at the phono moving magnet and moving coil  cartridge signal. The circuity use  five tubes as  ECC 88/6922  for moving coil and two ECC-81/12AT7 for moving magnet (as passive RIAA equalization) and one ECC-81/12AT7 for output as cathode follower adaptor, all tubes are accurate selected at very low noise operation. A innovative circuity designed from engineer of Lector make  the control of the bias by optical devices and a special circuity control the cathode operation at very low noise the moving coil inputs device. It's possible to change the input resistance of  MC cartridge  by external RCA- resistor plug  for to have better interface between cartridge and input tube.

Canary Audio MC-10 phono preamplifier NEW
 
Canary Audio MC-10 phono amplifier for sale. This is brand new out of the box still in the shrink wrap.
 The preamplifier is silver-gold. The MC10 employs an advanced circuitry with highest quality components to provide the extra gain stage and RIAA equalization circuitry that are required for highly accurate and low-noise reproduction of the low level output of a phonograph cartridge. The output goes directly to a line stage preamplifier. No step up needed.
 
The massive Power Supply utilizing three carefully selected vacuum tubes (1 x 5AR4, 1 x 6V6 and 1 x 6SL7) incorporated with a well thought out design with substantial energy storage and high inherent regulation.

The Line Stage utilizing four 12AX7 vacuum tubes and each tube is shielded to minimize interference and to reduce micro phonics. Two Sweden Lundahl step-up transformers are used in the MC gain section to provide high gain with ultra low noise that guarantees a very quiet background. Another key feature is the use of Amtrans AMRG premium carbon film resistors (with gold-plated leads) along with other premium grade components throughout the circuit to achieve exceptional RIAA accuracy. On top of that, two pair of MC inputs are available for turntable with dual tonearm.

 BENZ MICRO LUKASCHECK PP1 MC TRANSFORMER (WITH RIAA EQUALIZER)

The PP-1 is optimized for moving coil amplification, thus does not provide switches and or jumpers for gain setting or resistive loading. This elimination of unneeded circuit junction points preserves the low noise/high performance characteristics of this superb phono preamp. 
By using only 2 transistors in each amplifier stage, perfect stability and extreme fast transient response is achieved. This provides the high degree of transparency and accuracy of the PP-1. High quality double-sided glass epoxy circuit boards with carefully designed topology (CAD) have been applied in order to ensure shortest possible signal paths. Low noise matched bipolar transistors were selected for this purpose. All resistors are high quality metal film with 1% tolerance. Within the RIAA network, only 1% polystyrene capacitors have been used, with high quality metalized plastic-film capacitors in the coupling function. 
This stage is also individually regulated with discrete transistors in a constant-load configuration. Lukaschek finds this new regulator, in conjunction with his polarity inverting RIAA filter, yields reduced distortion and a more exact implementation of the RIAA equalization curves. The increased resolution afforded by these improvements exposed previously audible artifacts due to circuit board layout.
The noticeable sound pattern stages:
·                                 Warm, tube-like tonal balance
·                                 More resolution and extension
·                                 Bass is bigger and more solid; highs are effortless, open, transparent and totally devoid of smearing.
·                                 Focus, soundstage, depth and dimensionality improvements

Analog Gadgets

  
Satin SR-60 MC High Frequency Adaptor

The Satin SR-60 was designed  to damp out the high frequency peak that is typical of MCs.
The adaptor designed as an inductor and resistor it does seem to make the sound stage more distinct and makes high frequencies clearer. For example; the initial transient of cymbals is more distinct from the subsequent sounds, so there is a more copper sound, rather than a general high frequency rustling sound. The adaptor is made in Japan.
