  1. Item: Bvlgari necklace folder in black leather Location: Perth Price: $70 ono plus $10 postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This genuine Bvlgari black leather folder came as a packaging for one of the necklace that my wife had purchased. Unmarked and in great condition. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Item: Vibrapod Cones X 4 Location: Perth Price: $30 plus $8 postage Item Condition: Good with one of them almost new Reason for selling: Trying out other vibration isolators Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These used to sit under an acrylic board that was used under a CD transport. Previously, three of them used to sit under my amp but bought the 4th recently to use with the CD transport. Frankly, it sounded better with 4 rather than 3 of these under the transport. RRP with postage was around $50 from Decibel Hifi. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. Not quite, but it is much cleaner now thanks.😁
  4. The Caig Deoxit kit is pretty useful with its supplied metal brushes. I have used the brush to remove gunk from my interconnects, RCA connectors and tube pins with a bit of Deoxit and earbuds as an after clean. The oxidisation evident on the earbuds look worst than those that come off from my ears.😁
  5. I remember back in the days when these current hungry speakers were matched with an Accuphase integrated. I knew a friend who had one of these pairings and the sound was absolutely stunning with great dynamics and detail (when compared to my Advent speakers and Technics amp 😁).
  6. I believe this player has one of the best DAC in the business, a Philips DAC chip TDA-1549. GLWTS.
  7. It was the Opera Forbidden City. Weighs 35+ kg and was initially built with a set of tube pre-amp. This was subsequently modified to full SS, which was the model I had. They were called Opera Audio then.
  8. I have also been tempted with a Cambridge Audio Edge integrated because of their Class A bias. I have had a Jungson Class A pre/power and love the fullness, richness and smoothness in the mid range. Too bad the sound stage did not quite have the depth and the heat it puts out is a great feet warmer in winter. It was an 80 watt p/c amp so it was not fully capable of producing a strong enough bass on my Dynaudio 1.3SE. Then came the Consonance with 40watt Class A but 200 watt Class A/B. Now that is a different beast altogether. Now I am back to valves but might be thinking of moving to the Cambridge Audio Edge or another Class A/B Int amp that will give me the Class A 'Magic'.
  9. Item: Padis Audiophile 5 x 20mm 5A and 250v Slow Blow fuse Location: Perth Price: $25 plus $8 postage (firm) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Wrong Amperage. I needed a 4A rated fuse Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this for my Amp but found out that I should use a 4A and not a 5A rated fuse. In excellent condition and tested to be working in my amp for a short period as I did not want to take the risk of blowing my amp from a fuse on higher amperage rating than the factory recommended. Rhodium plated and very similar and some would say identical in design to a known Japanese brand of fuse that is currently selling for around AUD$70. Ebay have these for around $50 delivered from Germany. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  10. Item: Grant Fidelity (Shuguang) KT120 X 3 tubes Location: Perth Price: $150 plus delivery Item Condition: Very Good - Recently tested but never used Reason for selling: KT150 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased a quad set of these for my Audio Research after reading great reviews but one of the tubes died when I first installed. I had the bias setting on high at installation for that tube. Since then I have moved onto the Tung-Sol KT150. Only last week I had the opportunity to test each of them to identify which of the tube is faulty with the help of one of my new audiophile friends who has a tube tester. His results are shown next to each tube in the photos below. As I have learned, you must always set the bias to minimum on an AR amp when installing new tubes. As you can see, all three have very closely matched electrical readings and would suit amplifiers that uses matched pair plus you have one to spare. The faulty tube had a reading of 30MA, which I am not selling but can throw it in for free if you would like to have that too. All three have had less than one hour of use - or in brand new condition if you can still call it that way. Photos: .
