  1. I will take this if still available. Check you inbox mate. Robb
  2. Item: Oppo BDP-83 Location: Brisbane Price: $180 Item Condition: OK - no longer plays SACD. Still plays CDs fine. Reason for selling: Cleaning Up Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: I bought this Oppo from a forum member (see original add http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php/topic/100853-oppo-bdp-83-region-free-modified-blu-ray-player/?hl=oppo ) hoping to repair and use for SACD playback. I have had Avdigitech (authorised seller and repairer) here in Brisbane inspect and quote on the repair. The player needs a new SACD/DVD mechanism. Quote for repair is $350-400 (inc return postage from Brisbane). I landed a mid priced SACD instead and decided to not repair the Oppo. As per the previous add, the CD player works well - I have been using this as my Brisbane spinner when I am back in town. But I need to have a clean up so this must find a new home. Previous seller also said BluRay player still worked but I haven't verified that. Would still be a very good cheap CD player. The unit does present very well. Pictures: see pics in previous add...
  3. Item: Pair Scanspeak Revelator 7" mid woofers - 18W/16531G1 Location: Brisbane Price: $250 plus postage Item Condition: Excellent - one driver as new, slight scuffing on second driver Reason for selling: no time for projects.. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: I bought these here some time ago with the intention of building a bookshelf with Dyn Esotar tweeters. Just have had no time to consider said little project and am having a winter clean out. Note they are the 16 ohm version. Mark did some testing on these drivers, but when I purchased these I understood they were basically as new. I am in Brisbane until Monday so pick up preferred. Here is a link to the original add. Pictures: To follow.....
  4. The seller is a great bloke and really easy to deal with. His items are always in top condition. Don't be put off by the green section, he prefers for you to contact him directly via pm and not posting here like the above poster has said. Good luck with the sale mate.
  5. It is a great set up. I don't know how he gets any work done. Good luck with the sale mate.
  6. looks like I missed it by " " that much...sure the lucky bloke is going to enjoy it.
  7. Yes please if still available. PM incoming.
  8. Tian is a great guy to deal with - all his gear is in perfect condition. Good luck with the sale mate...
  9. Quick decision mate. The new pre must have measured up. Happy new year Steve
  10. Dean I quite agree - I much prefer the black look over the silver in the case of the Opera Consonance components although if I was buying new I would go for the black with a dark stained timber - I have seen a photo of this and it is a cracking combo. Yep it doesn't really get to flex its muscles here too much driving my ElectroVoice speakers but man it does do a real good job.
  11. Item: Peerless XXXL 12" woofers (stereo pair) Location: Brisbane Price: $700 Item Condition: Excellent - 9/10 Reason for selling: Not used and need to declutter Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: I purchased these from the late Phil Greenwood in November last year. Phil built the boxes cabinets to appear like coffee tables with a nice pine table top. Note they are in a sealed box arrangement. Each woofer "coffee table" has its own 300 watt digital plate amp with some DSP control. By his own admission the cabinets were far too big for the woofers but he filled the internal volume using wood blocks to the correct volume. I can attest to this as they weigh a ton ! I have hardly used these as I just never got time to set them up properly in the room. They have sat on my stage and would think used less than 4 hours. Time to move on to someone who will be able to better utilise them. Replacement cost of the plate amps and drivers was over $1000 when I checked them out last year. I will be sad to see them go as they have been a good reminder of Phil - he was a big help to me and nice all round guy to deal with. They do bring a smile at his memory... Pictures:
  12. Thanks Glenn. Yep it is a tough call but you are right, the room was always planned for this and it is fantastic to finally get the grand in position. Yep Nigel did a great job with the Jungson and I have been using it since. Not that it was better than the consonance or the Michi just been too busy to warrant pulling everything apart to rearrange the stereo. Was time to just enjoy the music ! I will probably list it shortly as well as it is just too big to put under my desk to run my desk monitors...
  13. not very good photos, but anything for you mate....get you over here soon for that Pearl Fishers duet or Lohengrin sing through perhaps ! amazing how a 7' piano can look small...
