Item: Fostex T50RP mk1 Location: Marrickville, NSW Price: $90 Item Condition: Near New - boxed with instructions and packaging - no mods Reason for selling: Not Needed Payment Method: Pickup preferred. Postage for additional cost. Extra Info: I bought these from Addicted to Audio Newtown earlier in the year out of curiosity. I used them for about 3 hours tops.

  6. Focal Utopia vs Sennheiser HD800S

    And I wonder if such an expensive pair of headphones could really have such a short warranty under Australian Consumer Law: https://www.choice.com.au/shopping/consumer-rights-and-advice/your-rights/articles/consumer-law-and-extended-warranties
  7. Best MC Cart under $1000 ?

    Nice to see someone else who loves old Vince Jones records!
  8. SACD Players

    I would second this. I use a DVP-S9000ES. It is an amazing component with SACD, and substantially built - I bought mine in mint condition here on the SNA forums for $500 with a fresh laser installed. Note, I also have a Sony BDP-S380 - the S9000ES is substantially better. The S9000ES players have a reputation for having weak lasers, however the lasers are still readily available on ebay (I bought a stock pile). Read around on the net about their relationship to the original Sony SACD players, such as the SCD-1. I also had a Marantz SA7001 here for a while - I was very surprised by how good that sounded. Certainly, better than the BDP-S380, although not as good as the S9000ES. But I would really take on board all the advice being offered here to consider an Oppo or similar. There seem to be countless stories on the web of older SACD players failing to read the SACD layers of disks, and some of these players seem risky once you factor having to possibly chase non-existent spares. And SACD is already an expensive medium to get into when you consider the price of the disks.
  9. Vintage head phones

    Listening to these right now - Rotel RH-930 electrets - a rebadged Toshiba "back electret" design. I also use a pair of Sony MDR SA3000s, which were the "cheap" version of the flagship SA5000s, with identical drivers. Both are excellent at retrieving detail, but in completely different ways.
  10. Vintage HiFi

    Ha! a life time supply. Enjoy.
