  1. Item: RCA vintage SUT MI-12399, MC step up transformer Location: Melbourne, Australia. Price: $390 + post Item Condition: Used, Excellent condition for vintage units, silkscreen labels very clean. Reason for selling: Downsizing collection Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only, Negotiable Extra Info: Excellent match with modest Denon DL103 cartridge. Uncanny tone, very soulful and extremely musical that I feel modern transformers lack. Wired with vintage western electric silk wax solid core wire. Audio Note Kondo grounding post and PHY-HP silver RCA jacks. One switch is ground lift, the other is for the two different gain settings. Plug and play unit. Pictures: Below.
  2. Item: OCELLIA Calliope 30 Silver loudspeakers. Location: Melbourne, Australia. Price: $9K Item Condition: Excellent condition. Reason for selling: Reluctantly downsizing .... financial pressures. Payment Method: Cash, Bank deposit, wire transfer, Paypal. Extra Info: Manufactured by Ocellia of France. The driver is rare French made 12" PHY-HP full range, alnico magnet, silver wire coil, paper cone, cast bell bronze housing. This is earlier version and would have been made by Bernard Salabert, who unfortunately has passed away. I believe PHY drivers are still being manufactured today, but under different management. The piezo tweeter in the middle is paper cone also. It is bi-wire version and accepts banana plugs only. Internal wiring is solid core silver with paper insulation, Ocellia's own. The guitar-body cabinet is in excellent shape. There is a lower door on the back baffle that can be adjusted to suit your room and preferences. Original boxes/packaging is in very good shape. These can be driven by anything from 1.5 - 30 watts. I have used these with excellent success with 2a3 SET, 300B SET, EL34 PP. I at the time chose Ocellia over the Musical Affairs as I felt the Ocellia cabinet was far superior in construction and visual aesthetics. They both used PHY-HP drivers. To my knowledge, Musical Affairs no longer use PHY-HP. Pictures: To follow.

  12. Item: Pair of vintage RCA 2A3 tubes, used, tested strong, no boxes Location: Melbourne Price: $350 + postage, make me an offer ... Item Condition: Used, tested strong Reason for selling: No more amps Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Selling some good sounding, used, RCA 2A3 tubes. Although these tubes are used, and pulled from working stereo single ended class A amplifier, I have been told that the tubes tested strong. I have no means of testing the tubes, but they sounded great. I bought the amp with these tubes installed, and have used it for a month or two before selling the amp. These tubes were not used for most of the time during my ownership as I was using some other 2A3 tubes, which I no longer have. The amp was sold shortly, along with the other tubes, and these remained in my stash, for OVER 1 YEAR! I don't know much about the type/vintage/construction of these tubes, so I did my best with the photos to represent them. They plate colour is more black than "grey". The flashing is good, and has double D getter down the base of the tube. The black bakelite bases are tight, and internal construction of the both tubes seem identical. The print is also identical with both tubes. Hope one of you will know more about these than I do Pictures: As follows.
