  1. Item: Sonance Sub 12 -250 Location: Sydney, inner-west Price: $790 Item Condition: Good, 7+/10 Reason for selling: NBU Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This was part of an experiment I ran to see what a sub would do for my Azura horns. Whilst it made a positive difference, it's not enough to justify the extra box on the room. Came from the forums, and is in perfect working order. Retail for $1700+. Pictures:
  2. Item: Guitar Pedals Location: Sydney, inner-west Price: See below Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These have all only been used at home, and rarely at that. Listed prices individually below, but they do make a very sweet set, so will offer them combined at $650. I'll throw in patch-cables for all. Carl Martin Red Repeat - $100 ($160 street) Carl Martin DC Drive - $100 ($160 street) JOYO Power Tune - $70 ($100 street). This is a power-supply/tuner that can power 8+ pedals. A very convenient and neat product. Greenhouse Effects Goldrive - $170 ($270+ street) Digitech Trio + Band - $300 ($420+ street). Well worth seeing what these can do. They're amazingly powerful in the right hands. Pictures:
  3. Thanks. I'd assumed the nitro had picked up something from my t-shirt or the like. Seems like a common outcome with that finish.
  4. Item: Fender Telecaster Custom Shop, with McVay G Bender Location: Sydney, inner-west Price: $2000 Item Condition: See below Reason for selling: Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: (Time to accept I really only enjoy playing acoustics nowadays, so should retire the electrics and associated gear). This is a truly awesome Custom Shop Telecaster w/McVay G Bender. A true beast of a guitar. I purchased it from a pro-player almost two years ago, and have only used it at home since. It has all the Custom Shop features you'd expect, and is a joy to play. Original case and paperwork. It has developed a curious darkening on the back where it sits against your body. Not sure if this is just a light affect on the finish, as I've never really tried to remove it, and it's more noticeable in photos than in person. There's probably a good argument that this is worth thousands more than being offered, but to be honest, I was lucky to buy it for a few hundred more a couple of years ago, so happy to offer it in SNA family at this price. Anyway, the price is whatever the market will bear... It comes with a true McVay G bender installed (these cost $1000+US, plus postage). To get an idea of what a G Bender can do, enjoy this - https://youtu.be/4OKZQSAIiyc Pictures:
  5. Item: Gibson ES-335 Dot Guitar (2011 build) Location: Sydney, inner-west Price: $2200 Item Condition: See below Reason for selling: Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: (Time to accept I really only enjoy playing acoustics nowadays, so should retire the electrics and associated gear). This is an interesting one. Gibson 335s have a notorious issue with fragile necks/ headstocks; something to do with the length and relatively thin/angled point at the beginning of the fretboard. They can fall off a stand and crack with apparent ease. This is one of those examples. So, it broke a during the previous owner's time, (he's a friend of mine). He had it repaired in Sydney; epoxy and full respray. You can just make out the outline of the crack if you look closely, but otherwise it's technically stronger that it was before, and has absolutely no effect on the playability or tone. (You can find a lot of talk about this type of thing online). The cost of such a history? $1000+ off the price these would command. I've loved having this guitar, it looks & sounds amazing, but I have to clear some room in the study, and am happy just finger-picking away on the acoustics nowadays. Pictures:
  6. Item: Fender Blus Jnr III Tweed Guitar Amp Location: Sydney, inner-west Price: $800 Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: Going acoustic Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: (Time to accept I really only enjoy playing acoustics nowadays, so should retire the electrics and associated gear). This is in as-new condition, only used for a few hours a month. Classic 15W amp with EL84 output tubes and 3 - 12AX7 preamp tubes. Sounds as good as it looks. Pictures:
  7. SOLD: FS: Cayin A-88T Amplifier

    Thanks, everyone. Yes, shipping is clearly a personal topic. I've never had an issue with PnS, including a lot of awkward items, but I know it can be another story... The amp is now sold.
  8. Item: Oppo HA-2 Head-amp/DAC Location: Sydney, inner-west Price: $250 Item Condition: Perfect Reason for selling: Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: (Time to offer up the numerous items that have accumulated between the study, office, bedroom, workshop.... only because they seem to be going mostly unused). Fantastic little unit. Very useful for the audio road-warrior. Pictures:
  9.

Great 'phones for the money. Original packaging and second set of velour earpads. Pictures:
  10. SOLD: FS: Cayin A-88T Amplifier

    Yes, solid lineage. The lost box is my fault. Not sure how, but likely at some point during a renovation last year. Fantastic amp. Really did think hard about keeping this instead of the WA Time Machine; mostly because of the versatility. Certainly can't fault the value, just can't keep so many things...
  11. SOLD: FS: Cayin A-88T Amplifier

    Thanks. Only option would be for me to drop it at Pack 'n' Send, as is.
  12. Item: Cayin A-88T Amplifier Location: Sydney, inner-west Price: $900 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: See below Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: (Time to offer up the numerous items that have accumulated between the study, office, bedroom, workshop.... only because they seem to be going mostly unused). This charmer came to me via the forums here last year. Has been powering some Linn Keilidhs in the study. It's now a headphone room, so no need for this. It's a lot of amp for the money, and sounds appropriately rich and powerful. Comes with an Eric McChanson step-down, as it's a 220V model. I've just installed four brand-new Mullard KT88 tubes, and had it biased. I don't have the original box, so pick-up only. Pictures:
  13. Item: Audeze LCD-XC Leather / Bubinga Location: Sydney, inner-west Price: $1200 Item Condition: Very good 8/10 Reason for selling: See below Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: (Time to offer up the numerous items that have accumulated between the study, office, bedroom, workshop.... only because they seem to be going mostly unused). I am the second owner, but have the A2A receipt from late 2014. In very good condition. Hardly used by me in the last 18-odd months. Comes in "Pelican" hardcase, and standard Audeze cable. Thanks.

  14. To Ponder a Sub

    Sorry for leaving the thread dormant, (and not following up @Happy). I sourced a sub via the classifieds. I was looking for something decent, without over-investing in the trial. Anyway, the Sonance seems to be a good fit for the brief. So, I have lived with it for a fortnight or so, and it has certainly changed the sound signature. Keeping the x-over very low, it has definitely "warmed" the sound, making it a more enjoyable presence, (i.e., not concentrated listening, just as background). That said, it has robbed the two-way of the airiness that is so alluring; weighing it down and feeling slightly less nimble. Not sure if a fancier sub would change this, or it's just the reality of the listening space. I also don't have a lot of choice regarding placement, so again, working with the realities of life. I'll leave it in the system for now, as it has achieved the goal I had. Cheers.

    Looks like we have a buyer lined up. Thanks all. Will let you know if it falls through, @heybaroo
