  1. Hi guys. This item is now sold, subject to payment. Thanks for all the interest!
  2. Item: Electrocompaniet AW180 Monoblocks (Pair) Location: Cairns, Queensland Price: $4500.00 now just $3000.00 Item Condition: See Below Reason for selling: House Deposit Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Relisting information So, these didn't sell. Where there has been much contact and discussion, there is an element of concern about the repairs, which is fair enough. Hence, I'm dropping the price to $3000. Whilst *I* know they're working properly, and sound fantastic, it's a leap of faith on a large outlay, regardless of my length of membership of good feedback. To alleviate that, I've taken $1500 off my original asking price. @ $4500 they're a great price. @ $3000 they're a steal! Original ad: For sale is a pair of Electrocompaniet's AW180 monoblocks. My AW180's formed part of my reference system for nearly a decade, and I wouldn't part with them willingly, but... need to raise some cash for our new house. (I've already been in trouble for suggesting we look into what one of the kids are worth, and I was only talking about a kidney, not an entire one! Wives have no sense of humour). These are high-end bits of kit in nearly anyone's language. I'll avoid the spiel - there are plenty of reviews online. They're still a current model - Aussie HiFi have them listed for $15,499.00 currently, I've used them to drive everything from Focal Utopia Minis, to big hulking B&W CDM9-NT's, up to Quad ESL2905 Electrostat panels. These have never broken a sweat The Good Sound: effortless. I'm not great with hi-fi superlatives, but "liquid" is a good one. SO smooth. Power: 250w @ 8 ohms, 380w @ 4 ohms, 625w @ 2 ohms. Weight: 22kg's. Each. Style: on point. Seriously, they're fun to look at! The Bad One has had a visit to the doctor - it got surged in a storm. My hope that it was "just a fuse" was dashed, and ended up being an $850 repair bill, with parts from overseas. It turns out that EC in Australia is only serviced by certain dealers (which is fair enough), but when you've got 25kg in insured shipping both down and back to a dealer down south, the freight bill alone was prohibitive! I've used them extensively since, and the repair was top notch. tonal balance, volume, etc is still perfectly matched. The Ugly Living in Cairns is great. If you like the heat. Unfortunately, I went away for a few weeks over summer a few years ago, and we got a heat wave. All my equipment was turned off, but the plastic shock absorbers built into the feet on the amp melted. They were actually glued to my tiles!! Not realising this, I literally ripped off a foot, and cracked another before getting a spatula and easing the rest off. I tracked down the price of some genuine feet for them, and decided to buy a house instead. Wasn't paying that much money - no way. So, I simply sat the old one back on, secured with blutack (don't judge me), and found another (silver) foot as a temp. I went to eBay and found some awesome solid metal feet to upgrade both amps. Haven't put them on yet, as I'm lazy, and have been using my Plinius amp due to space restrictions. These will be included in the sale. I've priced the amps according to the issues above. Happy to answer questions and consider offers. Freight: happy to go 50/50 with the prospective buyer, but the freight needs to be insured! I don't have the boxes for these guys, so I'll have to go bananas with the packing, or use Pack and Send. Rough estimate here is around $300 to Brisbane. Pictures: I've added in a stock image to show off how good they really do look, because my photography skills don't do these things justice. Thanks for looking!
  3. Item: Record Doctor V Record Cleaning Machine Location: Cairns, QLD Price: $240.00 Item Condition: Used once Reason for selling: Cashing in my chips! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Superfluous to requirements. Originally purchased from Decibel for $365 in January 2018 Opened once at work to clear a record. Boxed up and brought home. Pretty sure it's a superseded model now, and price reflects! Freight at cost via AP or your chosen courier. Stock image included for reference, plus two highly uninformative pictures of the box it comes it Photos:
  4. I'll 'ave it..... send me a PM mate, we'll exchange the details Cheers Wayne
  5. As per above, yes, the Hiato is still for sale. May be waiting for the re-list to be approved by mods! Plinius Hiato
  6. Item: Plinius Hiato 300w x 2 Super Integrated Amplifier (black) Location: Cairns, Queensland Price: $5500 $5200 $4900. Below half price for a year old amp!! Item Condition: Fantastic - like new Reason for selling: House Deposit Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is harder than I thought. I'm listing up my pride and joys.... the Marantz TT (see other listings) never saw the light of day, but the Hiato was my end-game super-integrated that was supposed to keep me entertained for the rest of my working life, and it's been in use most days for the last year! Sigh. Purchased in March 2018. 300 watts of velvet covered iron-fisted power. It's a beast, as you'd expect in for the $10k price tag. Plenty of reviews out there for those looking for info! All the good stuff: 4 x RCA inputs - all WBT connectors 2 x Balanced additional inputs on CD and Line 1 (XLR Neutrik) HT Bypass via RCA and XLR Line level and Pre-outs 300w x 2 / 8 Ohm* 450w x 2 / 4 Ohm http://www.pliniusaudio.com/en/Plinius_Range/Integrated_Amplifiers/Hiato.html This amp doesn't have the phono card included, as I've got the matching Koru phono stage listed as well. Nothing better than a Stack!! Of all the gear I'm posting up, this is the one I'm going to miss the most. I've never had an amp like it. It made my Focal Utopia Mini's sing, and those power hungry little suckers are as picky a set of speakers as I've ever heard...... I know "effortless" gets thrown around a lot, but this amp has never broken a sweat. Chucked it on a set of B&W CDM9-NT's, and it damn near killed the neighbours. RRP is $9995. I'm happy to split the freight with the prospective buyer 50/50, but need to insist on insured freight. I have the original double-boxed carton for shipping. Bring a friend for the lifting - i just held the thing out from my body whilst moving it for photos and may have developed a hernia. Some pictures: some include the Koru phono pre-, just for taste-bud tantalisation! By the way, the case-work is absolute modern art, that I can't hope to capture with my meagre photography skills. The blue sub chassis, with lines visible through the chassis in places is pure audio porn. Thanks for looking. Happy to answer any questions, and can trial for a local user - I'll annoy the wife for while by leaving all the gear strewn across the dining room before packing it into their shipping boxes. Cheers Wayne Pictures:
  7. Another further price drop! It's all nicely boxed up now, with typical Plinius over-engineering: double boxed, 50mm foam, etc.
  8. On the way down.... $4000 for the pair, and I will cap the freight at $100.... I'll cover the rest. Don't hold me to that if you're from Perth or Tassie please! I could end up losing money on the sale!!
  9. USGs are fun. What are you hoping to get out of it functionality wise, that you can't get from the draytek?
  10. Item: Marantz SR5007 A/V Receiver Location: Cairns Queensland Price: $285.00 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Not required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Grabbed this off a friend to start a lounge room setup, but then gave up. Can't really tell you much about it! I've plugged in speakers to ensure it's working (it is), and decided to list it. From what I understand it retailed at $1500-odd, has a hefty 7 x 100 watt output, and is 4K capable. It has a remote control which i forgot to photograph (tested as working). $30 freight - I'll take care of any extra. Insurance extra if you wish it! Pictures:
