Item: Audio Research DS-450
Item Condition: excellent
Reason for selling: trying something
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: I'm the first owner; bought this from a dealer a few months ago. Can provide receipt. I upgraded from Parasound JC-1 monoblocks and the DS-450 is more punchy and a lot faster than JC1. Amazing amp. Current model still selling now for AU$13495 http://www.synergyaudio.com/Audio-Research/Amplifiers/147/catmenu.aspx
* Item : Gainclone LM3875 25w x 2 @8ohm
* Location: Carnegie VIC 3163
* Item condition description: Apart from the dent on one corner- excellent
* Price and price conditions: $150 ono.
* Reason for selling:
Doesn't suit my power hungry speakers. I would recommend it to someone with efficient speakers.
I found that I could hear a lot of detail with this amp but lacked drive compared to my HIGH powered power amp.
* Payment Methods: Paypal, Cash - Pickup. I think from last time postage was around $18-20 Aust. wide
* Extra Info:
Original FS ad I bought this off /profile/120534-henry218/" rel="">@henry218 for $180
It also requires a Zobel network (that's what I was told) at the speakers output terminal because of the slight buzz with my speakers. I've heard them on 3 speakers and 2 out of 3 there was a buzz.
needs .05 mh inductor & 1w 10ohm resistor
Item: FS: ME25 Preamp and ME550II Hi Cap (Pick-up)
Location: Sydney Nth Shore
Price: $2000. Will consider splitting if there are buyers for both items (ME25 - $750; ME550II - $1350)
Item Condition: Excellent. The ME25 was purchased from SamZ a few years ago. Has not been serviced since I've owned it as it has operated flawlessly. Does not have the upgraded power supply nor remote control. Has an excellent MM phono stage. The ME-550II Hi Cap has a provenance that few can rival as this was Trevor's personal power amplifier for many years till I purchased from him 18 months ago. Naturally, it is mechanically superb and cosmetically excellent to boot.
Reason for selling: Continuing the journey and considering trying something different
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only
Extra Info: So far this is the best amplifier combination I've heard in my system. The ME25/550II are superbly dynamic and drive my Celestion A3's with remarkable authority. I have no doubt that if I sell this combination, I will come back to ME at some point in my journey but for now, I'm thinking about trying something different and that means the MEs would need to move out.
Pick up is preferred and audition is available for serious buyers.
Pictures: I will load pictures over the weekend
Here's one very poor iPhone pic just to show the combo in its natural habitat...

I've had a pretty keen interest on Conrad Johnson gear over the past couple of months and I'm wondering if there are any owners here on SNA that would be happy to give some insights into their gear. Special interest goes to Premier gear. 2's, 4's, 8's, 12's etc. I know this gear is extremely rare in Australia and I'm resigned to idea that any responses may be minimal.
Look forward to reading the contributions.
