  1. Hi gbb, I am interested in your comment regarding the 2Qute - no firmware updates. Is this DAC updateable? Cheers, Andrew
  2. Item: Isotek Aquarius EVO 3 SILVER Location: Canberra Price: Exchange for same model in BLACK Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Wrong colour Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am looking for a BLACK Isotek Aquarius EVO 3 in exchange for my silver one. It must have Australian power outlets. I have the original packaging so can freight easily. Thanks in advance. Pictures:
  3. Hi @rantan, For a while I ran an NAD M51 DAC straight into the Bryston and it sounded terrific. Andrew
  4. Hi Dave, Postage to 6059 I will cap the cost at $60 and cover any additional charge. Cheers, Andrew
  5. I have checked the Bryston website and they state that the warranty is transferable but will only be honoured in the country of purchase. So long as you stay in Australia then you will be OK. This also applies if you bought the amp new yourself.
  6. Item: Bryston 4B SST2 Power Amplifier Location: Canberra Price: $4,400 plus freight and PayPal if applicable Item Condition: Mint. Would suit new buyer. Reason for selling: Freeing up funds. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: This amp was bought new from Stereophonic, Melbourne in July 2015. It still has 18 1/2 years warranty left so would suit someone wanting a virtually new amp. There are absolutely NO scratches or dents on the amp casework. The Bryston range was recently updated to the SST3 range and the 4B has undergone some minor changes. The 4BSST3 sells for $7,399 - https://addictedtoaudio.com.au/collections/hi-fi/products/bryston-4b3-cubed-stereo-power-amplifier . This amp for sale was manufactured in March 2015 (the very latest version of the model) and the final Quality Assurance test sheet (see photo) indicates that it performs well above spec. The 4B SST2 will drive low impedance speakers with ease and Maggie owners' feedback suggest that it is also a great match for their speakers. It's sonic character is very neutral and transients are lightning fast. This amp is both musical and reliable, and will provide many years of hassle free listening. There are many favourable reviews online and I have yet to read a bad assessment of the 4B SST2. HiFi Choice use this model as their reference amplifier. I have kept the original factory packaging so shipping interstate would not be a problem. Freight charges, at cost, to be covered by the buyer. Pictures:
  7. Hey Dan, hope you're still reading this thread. For the last year, I have been using a Bryston 4BSST2 with my ML2 Refs. Even when I used a NAD M51 DAC as a preamp, the results were quite good. Earlier this year I got rid of the M51 and began using an Octave valve pre and that really did introduce a touch of magic. The final result is that I have the terrific muscle of the Bryston with that wonderful delicacy and transparency of valves. Imaging is sensational and it certainly works for me. Oh, measuring my system in room, the ML2 Ref are flat to 35Hz and only 5db down at 30Hz. Whilst this may not be ideal for HT, it is certainly adequate for 99% of my music. I did have twin subs in the system before but they always seemed a touch slower than the mains - and I spent countless hours integrating them into the system. Andrew
  8. Item: Elac 301.2Location: CanberraPrice: $295 plus postageItem Condition: Very Good. Small mark on base where contacted stand but all visible parts are perfectly blemish free.Reason for selling: No Longer Used.Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank transferExtra Info: These speakers were bought about 4 years ago and then used for 12 months as rear speakers in a surround system. They retailed in Australia for close to $1,000 and in the UK were priced at 499 pounds when the pound was worth AUS$2. I have also tried these Elacs in a 2.1 system and they give excellent results. Coupled with a good subwoofer and crossed over at about 90Hz, they give great results with pinpoint imaging - probably due to their small size HXWXD 121mm x 91mm x 135mm. These Elacs would be ideal for someone wanting to setup a high quality desk system or main system in a small room - using a good quality subwoofer in both cases. From experience these are also very effective surround speakers. Full specifications can be found at: http://www.hifigear.co.uk/elac-301-2-loudspeakers.html. I have the factory packaging if postage is required and original wall mounts are included. Pictures:

  10. Sold to first buyer Jsgraha via PM. Thank you to all who replied and so quickly. Andrew
  11. Still up for sale as they are a fraction too short for katattack74.
  12. Item: Canare L-2T2S XLR balanced interconnect 10 metresLocation: CanberraPrice: $75 plus postage Item Condition: Very GoodReason for selling: New configuration requires shorter lengthPayment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct DebitExtra Info: These are fantastic interconnects and their performance rivals brand name products easily. They certainly surpass the base line interconnects from most cable manufacturers. Noise rejection is perfect (as expected) for a long interconnect and there appears to be no loss of detail and speed that you might expect with this length. They are fitted with gold pin/socket Neutrik connectors. Pictures:
  13. Item: Audio Principe XLR balanced interconnect 1 metreLocation: CanberraPrice: $60 plus postage Item Condition: PerfectReason for selling: New configuration requires different lengthPayment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct DebitExtra Info: These are fantastic interconnects and I cannot fault their performance. They gave excellent results in my high end system. Very open sounding with very fast transients.Pictures:

Pickup only.Extra Info: I built four of these enclosures using the GR Research design shown at http://www.gr-research.com/pdf/singleservo.pdf. I used two of them and the remaining TWO are no longer required. They are extremely solid and well braced. Buyers can use the Rythmik Audio plate amp and the GR Research driver or use their own components for this sealed subwoofer. I don't have packaging for these cabinets so pickup only. Pictures:
  15. Please don't forget to check the Classifieds Guidelines before posting this classified ad. You many delete this text from your advertisement. Item: NAD Masters Series M50 Digital Music Player RRP $2799 Location: Canberra Price: $1150 plus postage at cost Item Condition: Excellent. Unblemished and operationally perfect. Latest firmware version installed. Reason for selling: Upgrading Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal + 3%, Extra Info: This product description is taken largely from the NAD brochure but I have made minor amendments to show inclusions captured in the latest firmware update. The NAD M50 is Software Defined Much of the M50’s system is defined by software, not hardware. This means that new cloud services or audio codecs can be integrated by simply changing the software stack of the M50. This software upgrade potential allows the M50 to live on and maintain its cutting edge functionality. While the focus is clearly on 24/96 and 24/192 Studio Master downloads and listening, the latest firmware update has included the addition of Internet Radio and premium cloud services such as Tidal, Pandora, Qobuz, WIMP and Spotify and many others. The M50’s massive processing power will support years and years of software upgrades which NAD have been issuing regularly. Powerful Connections The latest generation low power, super high performance ARM processor has been included. These have more computing power than a PC from just a few years ago, yet run cool and do not require noisy fans. Digital connectivity includes SPDIF, USB, and unusually for a stereo audio component, HDMI. NAD have included HDMI because it is a secure encrypted format that supports 24/192 HD Audio in PCM’s native I2S format, but it is not a video output. The M50 player offers a choice of a wired or wireless network connection, using standard Wi-Fi protocol IEEE 802.11 b/g/n. Wi-Fi capability also offers the convenience of controlling your music collection from a smartphone or tablet. Simple Control A smartphone or tablet is the best way to operate the M50 using the latest BluOS app. There is also included an IR remote and four-line graphic VFD display to play CDs like a conventional hi-fi component. We have also included an RS-232 and IR input to allow for easy integration with home automation systems. Music First The NAD M50 emphasises better sound, so after ripping a CD, playback is different and much improved in the M50 over existing CD players. Instead of streaming directly from the disc to the output, the M50 momentarily stores the data in a memory buffer where it is re-clocked to the M50’s high precision master clock for the lowest levels of jitter. Enjoy fully asynchronous audio playback from all your media sources This player is just two years old but is in as perfect condition. Build standard is excellent and the finish presents as new. For the last two years it has been used with a NAS drive which is a more cost effective solution than NAD's own M52 storage vault. This unit is a perfect match for the NAD M51 DAC. Sound quality is excellent as the following reviews attest: http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/nad-m50-m52-streamer-server https://www.avforums.com/threads/my-streamer-shoot-out-nad-m50-the-winner.1799465/ I still have all the original packing so postage is possible Australia wide.
