yessir, I cannot tell a lie. It was I who did it.
But, no, the Power supply is not currently working. The seller contacted me and offered to pay reasonable expenses for the repair of the PS and as I have some background (though not a lot) in electronics I thought I would take a look at it myself and at least have an estimate made of for the cost of repair.
I thought the price was too good to be true and I have wanted one since 1989. Back then I opted for a SOTA Star Sapphire (Yes, another inverted Jewel bearing) but have continued to carry a torch for the Pink. I have now got another room where i can put another stereo based around a Naim system...The cartridge will be an Ortofon Jubilee and I may use a Mørch DP 6 on it instead of the Helius (though I shall spend a good time making up my mind).
Now I will just have to see what I can do to that pesky power supply. I presume that the TT will run off 12 V DC, but if it does not I have a White Noise PS (previously used to drive my Garrard 401: watch Ebay in the next few weeks) that can be used with a Linn motor (a heinous crime, I know)
Any information that you have about the TT would be much appreciated here in the Ultima Thule (Aberdeen) north of the kingdom of the evil King Ivor and his minions.
Ah, so it was you who outbid me. Never mind it was only because I wanted another second PT so wasn't going to go very high.
The seller said he would remove the listing if he could not get the power supply to work, so I would assume he sorted it.
I think that's a Helius Aurum arm you have there, same as me. It works beautifully with a Denon DL103 so I advise you try it one out.

I have just bought a second hand PT Too, which may or may not have problems with the power supply. (eBay 150238910471). Regardless of this possible problem I was also intrigued by your modified power supply.
I wonder if I could get some the necessary bits and bobs from you for the modifications?
all the best
