  1. This is on Ebay now (and is by far the cheapest one there - by some $1500). I have reduced the price here to take in to account Ebay commission. The last one to sell in Australia on Ebay was $4,600 so this is as cheap as you will find.
  2. Item: GATO DIA-400 Location: Brisbane Price: $3,250 , reduced to $2,950 plus shipping Item Condition: 9/10 - still has the plastic protector on the white top. Reason for selling: I have enjoyed this amp very much (and its versatility) but my graph of wanting to try something new has crossed with my graph of the fact that everything else I have is black and that graph has intersected with my wine expenditure so now I have decided to move it on. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Runs cool, has heaps of power and control with a very good Dac. Retailed for somewhere in the $8k range. I have the manual, box and remote. 2 years old but I don't use it much (in winter I use my Line Magnetic as it doubles as a heater). Features: 2x [email protected] / 2x [email protected] Class D output stage Built in 24bit/192kHz D/A converter with upsampling Coax and asynchronous USB digital input up to 24bit/192kHz, optical up to 24bit/96kHz Accepts digital streaming directly from Apple iPhone or iPad Two unbalanced and one balanced inputs Nonmagnetic enclosure Direct function; enables use in home theater sytems Designed, developed and build in Copenhagen, Denmark
  3. Holton Zero Five Zero Introductory Offer!

    I would be interested in one too - but in black.
  4. Harbeths or PMCs Confused!

    I tried 30.1s in my room - which is approx 3 x 3 and I could not control the bass - just overloaded the room. I ended up with Evolution Accoustics Micro Ones which still give me all the bass I want (although I don't like a lot - hate the "boom" and worry about the neighbours) but allow me to play as loud as I can stand when I want to.
  5. Not many fish in this channel either it would seem. Crazy price for this Amp.

  7. Skull island

    I thought John C Reilly (think that is right) made the movie.
  8. Is the CD Dead

    It will be interesting how the future unfolds. I have two sons - 7 and 9. They both enjoy music but the 7 year old is more "into" it. He likes to spend time listening with me whereas the older one tends to do it only to make me happy. I have hundreds of CDs that mostly sit in the CD cabinet (which is in the living room - you can't actually see the CDs) - they are all ripped to file. We sit and play from the various apps. I made them each a CD of their favourites. The older child has never played it (but has asked for the ability to easily record his own music and playback on the computer) whereas the younger one loves his CD - he is also the one that shows his mum how to use the music player in her car and can sing along to just about every song we have. He loves all the mediums. So on a 50/50 basis - the future in my house looks like the CD will survive for the purist/music lover and the streaming will do for the rest
  9. Thanks Tony. I thought I had read somewhere that these came in crates so that shipping price is a relief. I appreciate the effort.
  10. Hi Tony Just wondering with regard to your speakers what type of packaging they have - just trying to work out how much it would cost to get them to Brisbane. Thanks Paul
  11. These are fantastic speakers - and some wonderful packaging. GLWTS.
  12. Star Wars: Rogue One

    I agree actually. I wanted to like it more but the droid was the best bit. Without it the whole thing was a bit flat - not saying it was bad, just not as a enjoyable as TFA. I liked Donnie's character but my wife pick the CGI before I spoiled it for her.
  13. You are welcome to try my Gato (even just to borrow and report on) but after summer - it is my Summer amp. I put it away after I bought a Line Magnetic (which I preferred to the Luxman in the small room) but my listening room is too hot for the tubes in Summer so I put the Gato back in. I had always preferred the Luxman to the Gato but the Gato has more functionality - great Dac included. Now that it is back in I think I might have not appreciated it enough last time so would be interested in your thoughts.
  14. This was exactly my experience first time I heard a 507 (your test amp was mine once I believe).
