NJ Bidders: Revilla Grooves and Gear has the responsibility to charge 7% sales tax to New Jersey auction winners. This sales tax charge will appear on your invoice at the end of auctions.

My Reference and Grading Audio System:

Audio grading is done with a pitch perfect KAB Broadcast Standard Technics 1210 Turntable and a Grado 78C Cartridge designed for Mono 78 record playback. (If you love vintage records and don't have one of these you owe it to yourself to hear what it can do for your 78s)

Check out the KAB Broadcast Standard:

******Grado 78C specs so you can compare my grading cartridge to your listening cartridge:

The Prestige model 78C uses a three-piece OTL cantilever technology, oxygen free wire in the coils and a specially designed, high polished conical/spherical

3 mil. diamond mounted in a brass bushing.
