  1. Vintage Sansui - Discussions

    I would stick with the D11 to be honest. Similar circuitry and sound, but D11 has the nice wooden case! D11 is a 3rd generation, and the 719 was second gen. For me - I find the earlier (i.e., 777) interesting because the sound is quite different, and the much later (Alpha / Alpha X) as they are a very smooth, articulate and polished - less raw than something like the 717, not overly warm like a 555/555a - but i think this is where they got it totally right. The 607nra was a bit too clinical for my liking though .. and the X911DG actually has a REMOTE and a DAC, which is probably why someone is pinging me wanting to buy it now

    Need one? what is this 'need one' mean? You don't buy because you need, you buy because you want! I certainly can't use my 719, X911DG, 777, 607NRA2, 3900, or 519 at the same time, and certainly not why i bought them. .. but i'll keep one and sell the rest over next couple of months. Have a house to buy by October! Also - if anyone wants parts from a AU-D9, let me know - bought one from the US and case got totally wrecked in transit

    Yes that's me. Put the AU-X911Dg down for a while and used this - quite a different sound, entertaining and more articulate than what I thought it would be. Sold the other Alpha 607 to a guy in chille!. Another guy selling the 777a locally as well.
  5. Seller "Mike" On Gumtree

    No, but curious as to responses. To me - looks like someone who imported items when AUD $$ was on parity, sat on them and now selling when $AUD is 0.76 AUD. Nice items (no doubt) - but premium prices, limited information and for me - raises a 'beware' flag. Aside from that - nice stuff for sale - had no idea there was a Yamaha NS 3k! and has certainly piqued my interest in diatone. In short premium hi-fi at premium prices.
  6. How much better

    Law of diminishing returns kicks in at that point, as does all the environmental factors. If i was renting a house .. there is no way i would spend that much. After owning $2000 speakers i ended up with $100 pair of corals so go figure. Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  9. Yamaha replacement?

    Im pretty sure i have one of those amps in a box if you really like them and want another. Sounds like yours just has a dry joint somewhere. Sent from my SM-T355Y using Tapatalk
  10. No sound from Sub

    Easiest way is to test the sub first. If you unplug it from the receiver and turn volume up about half way and simply touch the plug. the static should be plenty to create sound in the sub. If that fails try another cable first! If that fails well ... sub cactus. Otherwise receiver issue Sent from my SM-T355Y using Tapatalk
  11. Well .. power gets generated in Australia at a couple of hundred thou volts, then across subrubia at 415v, and tapped to each residence at around 230v. If you are in a commercial building / residence it probably terminates at 11kv and then distributed @ 230v. Don't see the big deal about stepping down to 120v.
  12. Pickup is scheduled tomorrow. If falls through will post actual dimensions. Around 800 x 500 x 400 Sent from my SM-G935F using Tapatalk

  15. Item: Richter precious metal series Centre speaker Location: Melbourne, 3105 Price: $30 Item Condition: Good condition and working well. Made of solid aluminium so quite hard to get damaged! Reason for selling: Got them for free with plans for the cabinets .. but Alas. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can't remember where these came from - but were part of the Precious Metal home theatre package by Richter - package price was about $1500 in the day, so these are not a low end item. Prefer not to post, but am very keen to move on things! Pictures:
