    Regarding shipping abroad , it would be at buyers responsibility, obviously I’d do my best as to the quality and safe packing ( would require double box) , I’d strongly advise insurance and only acceptable payment option in this case would be PayPal friends&family . I will try to check if I have suitable box ( to double the strength of factory supplied packaging) , once I know the size and weight I can get some quotes for the shipping cost . Hope this helps

    Thanks, it sounds suitable and I'm still interested in.
    Completely agree for an insured shipping, the only concern being I don't know that PayPal option payment method.
    please let me know if you find a safer packaging than simply the original box.

    Thanks, best regards
    Stefano

    Friends&Family is like a gift option as opposed to "pay for goods and services ", consequently there is no fees imposed on the seller also buyer cannot make a claim .
    I'm not very happy sending it abroad and on the top of that selling to a New Member ( no offence meant) hence I'll accept only this payment method .

    Hi, I perfectly understand and will use such payment method, no problem with that.
    I understand the risks in shipping a TT around Europe and that's the reason why I refer to a "safer packaging" meaning "bomb proof packaging". In fact I experienced broken items due to couriers cares and wrong packaging in the past (believe it or not the seller left the counterweight linked to the tonearm of a Pro-ject TT!)
    Finally you can check my 100% positive feedback on ebay (user sminiero) or even on AudioMarkt.de as a buyer - I'm not a professional operator but only an audiophile in search of an upgrade for the analogical front-end in my system.
    I'll let you know when I'll be prompt with the PayPal configuration if you agree.

    Thanks
    Stefano

    My plans for the weekend changed a little so I won't be able to take anymore pics till next weekend , sorry
    in the meantime I try to find suitable double box , to be fair original packaging looks very safe , with lots of foam infills , separated platter , plinth, compartments for tonearm , etc ...
    I just remembered , I have made to order another plinth in black acrylic to suit SME tonearms , it comes with cutout for the sled , hole for the main bearing , I haven't tapped M12 holes for support legs as I thought double sided 3M pads would be as good . I started setting it up but then I bought another turntable and it went to the cupboard . It could be used with tonearms other than SME if used with one of this:

    Some pictures I found on my mobile:

    I can sell it separately for £200 or £950 with turntable - arm not included obviously , it's very easy to swap and works nicely , I'll take some more pics in a week

    Got back home bit earlier than I thought so I pulled box out of the cupboard and took some pictures
    [​IMG]
    Black acrylic plinth for SME and other tonearms , elongated cutout for tonearm is not particularly neat but won't be seen under the sled
    [​IMG]
    Manual and all other paperwork
    [​IMG]
    Top layer of the box , tonearm would be secured against any movement if shipped
    [​IMG]
    Box with auxiliaries - small round spirit level , bearing oil, screwdriver and allen keys , motor pulley , clever clamp , tonearm insert plus 2 headshells (one unused) , anti-skate screw ,
    [​IMG]
    marks from grab screws holding/tightening tonearm , not visible as they are within the arm collar
    [​IMG]
    Second layer - turntable plinth
    [​IMG]
    Third layer - platter , there are some minor scuffs but couldn't capture with camera
    [​IMG]
    Assembled tonearm and CMB spindle
    [​IMG]
    and fully assembled , I didn't realize I had 3 Silent Belts , grab screws on motor pulley are nylon so care need to be taken when doing them up , tonearm is directly wired so no need for extra RCA interconnect

    As you were first person to express interest I am willing to reserve turntable for you until Friday night ,
    I managed to source second box , I get some quotes for shipping and PM to you along with my paypal address , as shipping will be fairly expensive I can drop the price to £750 plus postage cost

    Thanks, you are very kind. I'll let you know when ready with my PayPal account - as I was stating before I think starting from tomorrow at worst.
