Focal Micro Utopia with Target stands

Postby mmai » Tue Nov 26, 2019 12:02 pm

Sold!

For sale is a beautiful pair (sonically and cosmetically) of Focal Micro Utopia in 8/10 condition, conservatively rated. The only blemish I can see is a faint hairline scratch on top of one speaker.

The front covers are included, as well as the original manuals, but no original boxes.

A pair of sand/leadshot - fillable heavy-duty Target R4 stands are included free for the asking price. The stands are in 7/10 condition.

Price: $1,450.

Buyer is responsible for all freight charges and Paypal fee, if applicable.

Re: Fully Restored Original MK1 VPI HW-19 (Boston Area)

Every rubber item replaced, new motor, new motor standoffs, new pulley, new belt, every nut and bold cleaned and polished, new t-nuts and feet. Springs replaced with RubberSorbothane suspension (All original springs and parts included if you want to go back). Includes original two piece screw down clamp, plus new black delrin clamp. Bearing and spindle were sent to VPI and given a refurbish by Harry Weisfeld himself. New wiring and power switch.

Arm is a Sumiko MMT with two headshells and extra counterweights. Also includes spare armboard with Linn style mount. Currently using an Audioquest Cougar cable ($400).

Brand new Grado Black2 installed. GREAT on this table!

Dust cover has crack that has been repaired but should eventually be replaced to make table perfect. I have a line on one in great condition for about $140 shipped and would be happy to pass the seller info on to you.

Here's my total investment in the table not accounting for ANY of my time.

HW 19 Purchase 260
Sumiko MMT 250
Motor 99.66
ACE HW Supplies 52
Digi-Key Parts 26.23
Audioquest Cable 155
VPI Delrin Clamp 56
Grado Black 80
Amazon Parts 25
HW Bearing Rebuild 45
VPI Pulley 36.95


Total=1,085.84

And that's my price, $1100 for what equates to basically a brand new HW-19. It probably wasn't this nice coming from the factory in 1985. I'll take $950 without the AudioQuest cable and $875 without the cable and Grado Black2. The capabilities between this and my VPI Prime are allot closer than you would think.

Cash pickup in Winthrop, MA will also meet or deliver within 100 miles.

$875 HW-19 and Sumiko MMT
$950 HW-19, Sumiko MMT and Grado Black2
$1100 HW-19, Sumiko MMT, Grado Black2 and Audioquest Cougar
