Item: Elektra Theatre 7 Channel Power Amp
Location: Preston VIC 3072
Price: $1300 ONO, includes donation to SNA. If shipping is required this will be at the cost of the buyer.
Item Condition: It is in great condition for a 14 year old amplifier. Yes it has a few scratches and marks. I have had it for around 2 years and in the last 12 months had it serviced and re-capped by Arthur. He also fixed a trigger issue so it can now be powered on/off from a pre or AV Receiver. Works perfectly. I had it paired with my Parasound P5 which is also up for sale and together they sounded great, slightly warm, smooth and a nice sound stage.
Reason for selling: I have moved onwards and upwards. I will probably regret selling this given I lose my ability to drive 7 channnels of Elektra goodness but hey funding new stuff has to been done through sacrifices according to the CFO.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash preferred as I have no boxes for this guy. Will go down the Paypal path if needed (the purchaser incurs the overheads associated with this)
Extra Info: I am not 100% certain of its power given specs on this model are hard to come buy. I believe its around the 150 Watt per channel mark, am happy to be corrected by those who are better informed.
Pictures: The pics below are of the actual unit for sale.

Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: recently bought less efficient speakers

This is a high-spec version of Garry Cawsey's superb sounding (8 ohm) class A amp with Bocchino RCA and speaker terminals, integral power cord and several other tweaks which only Garry knows the secrets of!
It has a built-in gain stage/volume pot, so in effect it behaves like an integrated amp with a single input if desired, or alternatively just pair it with a pre-amp for use as a dedicated power amp.
Conservatively rated at 12W per channel, it does a fantastic job of driving speakers rated upwards of 88 dB
Price new was $4000. (Garry's base model is $3000 but this is one with the 'extras'.) Although purchased a year ago, it has only been in use about half that time due to overseas trips and more recently the fact that my new speakers, being rated at 86dB into 4 ohm ideally need a beefier amp. Even though this amp drives them to decent volume levels without undue stress it is better paired with more sensitive speakers from a synergy point of view.
I have compared it with a Job power amp among others and this digs out way more of the music and presents it in that 'seductive' way characteristic of class A amps. This is genuine high-end sound at a fraction of the price.

Currently selling for $3600 everywhere:
FLAGSHIP POWER AMPLIFIER
The 851W has class XD amplification at 200W into 8 Ohms in stereo mode or 500W RMS per amp in mono bridged mode, separate toroidal transformers for the power amp and input/other circuitry, and terrapin impedance buffering modules. All in all it's the best sounding amplifier we have ever made.
Our best sounding amplifier ever, delivering a stunning 200 watts per channel. Works in stereo, mono or bridged mono mode for complete flexibility. Click on the video to the right to hear more.
CLASS XD AMPLIFICATION
Our proprietary amplification system switches dynamically between Class A and AB systems. Class A amplification delivers the purest possible sound, using only one transistor to conduct, but can be energy inefficient. Class AB involves both transistors conducting simultaneously, but makes it impossible to maintain a balance of low crossover distortion and power efficiency.
Our Class XD system operates in both Class A and Class AB mode, dynamically moving the crossover point depending on the audio output volume. This combines the near zero crossover distortion of pure Class A with improved efficiency of Class AB at higher volumes, without any compromises in performance for the best of both worlds.
TERRAPIN IMPEDANCE BUFFERING MODULES
These proprietary modules replace the op-amps commonly found in similar amplifiers. At the critical low level gain stages, these offer far improved stereo separation and imaging – this is very rare at this price point.
ALL METAL CHASSIS
Extensive use of aluminium creates massive structural rigidity, while careful damping and control of acoustic resonance contribute to audiophile sound quality. Click on the video opposite to find out why all of our products use metal chassis.
Smart auto-standby mode detects incoming audio signals providing seamless integration with our preamplifiers.

Item: Halcro Preamp DM8 and Halcro Power Amp DM38
Location: Sunny Nanango.
Price: S8000 each or both for $15000 (plus postage, buyer to cover paypal fees)
Item Condition: Excellent, no visible scratches or marks. Pictures below are archive pics, can pull them out of their containers and take fresh ones if required.
Reason for selling: I don't really use them and I would like some space and some cash. I will regret selling them but that is a normal state of affairs and I will just have to get over it. The Halcro gear has taught me a lot about how things sound and why they sound that way and for that reason alone they have a high sentimental value to me. The fact that they are two of the lowest distortion pieces of home audio gear in the world is also a factor, of course.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: Comes with aluminium flight case for the DM8, wooden crate/mini-pallet for the DM38, leather bound manuals for both and the remote for the DM8. Don't go fooling yourselves here guys, the DM38 will cost a fortune to courier, please keep that in mind.
