    It makes you laugh . Dear dear me . I would sooner thrash my buttocks with holly and nettles than think about parting with that sort of money

    Not a clue Anto. Never looked into the make. But I'm sure there are those here who could give an educated opinion.

    I think it depends if you want to use it or collect it.

    I'm 100% sure there's quite a few vinyl rigs on the forum put together at 5-10 per cent of that asking price that could boast superior performance. (IMNSHO mine would be one of them!).

    Collectors have a logic of their own of course, rarity or reputation being worth more than sound quality and the horrid word 'investment' creeping in, the assumption there's a 'greater fool' out there who would pay even more at some future date.

    Not being one of their number I have no idea if the seller is a total piss taker or whether there's a queue forming.
    Main: Speakers 'RFC' Tannoy Canterburys / custom crossovers; Amp - Radford STA100; Pre EAR 912; Vinyl: Thorens TD124 MkII + Ikeda IT345-CR1 / Ikeda IT-407 tonearms; Cartridges Stereo - Miyajima Madake, Ortofon SPU Royal N, Ikeda 9C III, SAEC/Excel C3; Mono - Miyajimas - Zero 0.7, Premium 1.0, Sonovox MC-4 1.0, Edison '78' 4.0 conical, and Shure M44 strapped for mono with several Expert Stylus conicals for different eras of 78s; Phono stage and SUT from EAR 912; Esoteric Sound Re-Equalizer for equalisation of early mono and 78, switchable in from tape loop; Digital: Audio Note CDT2/II transport, heavily modded AN Kit DAC + Mutec MC3+USB.

    Study: Speakers - Tannoy DC6; Amp: Pass Aleph 'Mini'; preamp - Firebottle custom; Vinyl: Garrard 401 with AT1503 tonearm and vintage Ortofon SL-15e with matching Ortofon 2-15k SUT; Phono Stage: Firebottle Plus; Digital - Trichord Genesis III CDP + Arcam rBlink; Schiit Multibit DAC.

    It is actually a bit more than that, as you need to add 21% vat to the price as well.

    Life is too short to worry about the opinion of others.

    The seller is based in the EU, so no VAT payable.

    The deck advertised is the EMT 927, a broadcast standard deck capable of playing 16" LPs. For some audio enthusiasts it is the Holy Grail of rim drive (idler) TTs. The 927 along with its smaller brother, the EMT 930, are especially revered in Japan. I saw a shrink-wrapped sample in perfect condition in an up-market audio salon when I visted Japan a few years ago.

    I have a 930 which I love, but your are largely restricted to using the (albeit excellent) EMT cartridges. One can, with a bit of manual dexterity, fit other cartridges into an emplty TSD-G headshell, but it's a tight fit.

    Only VAT free within the EU if the buyer has a valid VAT number, otherwise it’s plus 21%. Since this listing is priced excluding VAT, I presume that the seller is confident that it will end up somewhere like the Far East.
