  1. Walked into the local post office this morning to post a parcel and joined the longish queue. Along the line are shelves and stacks of crap they are selling since they "diversified". But something caught my eyes this time, VINYL!!! Who says vinyl revival is not real? They have five titles: 1. Creedence Clearwater Revival - Cosmo's Factory 2. Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells 3. The Beatles - Abbey Road 4. Legend – The Best Of Bob Marley & The Wailers 5. Dire Straits - Dire Straits Unfortunately all are from the Back To Black Series and not something I am interested in. But it sure is a good start? First the Aldi, now AusPost, so BigW, Coles, Woolly and Target to follow?
  2. Cables sold pending payment. Thank you.
  3. Item: The Chord Company Carnival Silver Screen Speaker Cables 7.3m Location: Edgecliff Price: $135 SOLD Item Condition: 8/10 only because of slightly duller look in colour (no longer snowy white as it was new) Reason for selling: Upgraded a while ago Payment Method: Bank Transfer Only Extra Info: I bought these wonderful The Chord Company Carnival Silver Screen budget speaker cables 3 years ago from Apollo HiFi in Sydney. These cables have very open sound with great amount of bass. Carnival Silver Screen used to be crowned the best budget cable and had won numerous awards. Plenty of reviews you can find online. They are in great condition and only see This pair is 7.33 m in length from tip to tip. They were purchased unterminated. I added four pairs of Cambridge Audio RCA plugs ($20/pair) and later the Neotech RCA plugs ($20/pair) for my new amp which are European, comes with larger holes and needed bigger diameter pins. The Chord Company Carnival Silver Screen Speaker Cables are retailed for $12/m. Some Australia retailers are still selling a 3m factory terminated pair for $299. I am happy to split the cables if there are two parties who needs only one 7.32 m cable (make into 3.5m pair), then you'll each get one set of RCA plugs each (four pairs) for $75. The pin of the Neotech RCA are split into four segments, one of the pins has one segment broken. I could not hear any deterioration in sound quality. If you are worried, you can get yourself a new pair ($20) easily. Will ship. No pickup please as it won't work for me time wise. About 2.5 kg including box for a pair. Or about 1.5 kg including box for one cable. Pictures:
  4. Item: Audio Art IC-3SE Interconnects with Xhadow/KLEI RCA's Location: Edgecliff Price: See details Item Condition: See details Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Bank Transfer Only Extra Info: Audio Art IC-3SE with Sound Connections Xhadow Precision RCA's 7/10 1. 1.5m (154 cm tip to tip) - $300 (RRP US $450) 2. 0.4m (40 cm tip to tip) - $200 (RRP US $360 for 0.5m) ** Need Wider Spaced Sockets to Fit Xhadow Plugs ** ** Worn colour rings and some oxidations on Xhadow silver tips as would any silver bits, which does not affect the sound Audio Art IC-3SE with KLEI RCA's 9/10 like new 3. 0.5m (50 cm tip to tip) - $200 These Audio Art IC-3SE Interconnects were purchased directly from Audio Art three years ago. These are fantastic cables and claimed to be "Cost No Object Performance"! Plenty of favourable reviews online: 1. Enjoy The Music 2. 6 Moon 3. SoundStages! 4. Audiogon I purchased a 2m and a 0.5m cables from Audio Art, the 0.5m cables turned out to be only 0.4m. I brought this up to Audio Art and got a US $30 refund . At the time I used an integrated amp. I have changed my setup to using preamp and power amp. I have Chris from Kimil to cut the 2m into 1.5m and .5m cables and re-solder the Xhadow connectors with Cardas Audio's excellent Quad-Eutectic Solder, as stated on Audio Art's website. For the 0.5m, I have used KLEI's Silver Harmony RCA because they are easier for me to obtained in Australia and less expensive. Although they still cost AUD 135 for two pairs. Where Xhadow would cost US $95 for a pair. For the performance, I find the 0.4m interconnects with Xhadow RCAs are only marginally better than the 0.5m interconnects with KLEI Silver Harmony RCA, so I was happy with them. Cost of the RCA plugs alone for reference: Xhadow Precision RCA Plug Large US $95 a pair KLEI[emoji769]Silver Harmony Phono/RCA AUD $135 two pairs ** Will ship, no pick up please time wise it won't work for me.** Pictures: Audio Art IC-3SE with Sound Connections Xhadow Precision RCA's 1.54 m Audio Art IC-3SE with Sound Connections Xhadow Precision RCA's 0.4 m Audio Art IC-3SE with KLEI Silver Harmony RCA's 0.5 m

  11. Item: ESP Victor Wooten Signature MusicCordPRO 2m Power Cord x2 US plug Location: Edgecliff Price: $250 for 2, or $150 each Item Condition: Near mint, can't see any faults except some wear on the pins Reason for selling: Too stiff for my setup Payment Method: Bank Transfer Only Extra Info: ESP also makes their cables in EU and UK plugs but NOT AU plugs. I did not consider that these Essential Sound Products Victor Wooten Signature MusicCordPRO power cables are quite stiff and inflexible. I used them for a year. I don't like them poking out and look untidy so they have been stored away for a year! So be sure you have room for these cables before you buy. These superbly constructed power cables were bought from Essential Sound Products 2 years ago with special deal similar to what they are having currently. As you can see they are thick and quite stiff, the make quality is one of the best I have seen. With the current offer, they probably cost about $450 with the free shipping. 2 years ago it cost me about $500 with higher exchange rate. Selling the two cables for $250. The cables come with a lovely bag each originally and a custom cable tie, no box. Unfortunately one cable tie is missing. Post only for $20 nation wide as they are quite heavy. Will give you the actual shipping quote if you buy only one, just send me your postcode. Sorry no pickup please, time wise it wouldn't work for me. Pictures:
