  1. Item: Melltone Speaker Cables MTSX by Hitachi. 3.6 metre pair. Rare and sought after - Spade termination with RA DesignLab banana plug adapters Location: Perth Price: $450 plus $15 postage. Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Made from FEP - Flourine Resin skin and OFC wire, this is a very sought after cable that is incredibly hard to source because of its popularity and rarity. It is one of the best classic example of speaker wires done correctly. Very rarely do these cable come up for sale worldwide. Photos:
  2. Item: Padis Audiophile 5 x 20mm 5A and 250v Slow Blow fuse Location: Perth Price: $20 plus $10 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 Int 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 although for a short period as I did not want to take the risk of blowing my amp from any electricity spike should the fuse not work due to its higher amperage rating. 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. Pictures:
  3. Item: Stereolab Goldilink Interconnect 1 metre with original box. Location: Perth Price: $350 plus $25 postage (due to size of packaging) Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Upgraded to silver interconnect Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: If you are reading this, you know how rare these come up for sale. The science behind the interconnect can be found at this link: http://www.ultrahighendreview.com/stereolabs-after-hours-audio-announces-goldilinks-interconnects/ I have enjoyed using this for a number of years and it is time to try some silver interconnects. The cables will include the original packing box (as per photo). I have marked on the connector, though not as obvious as it should be, the direction from equipment to the amp. Great interconnect - smooth, detail and dynamic is how I would describe the sound. I have tried other e.g. Atlas, Chord, Eichmann, Nordost, Analysis Plus and I always come back to these. No hardness, lumpiness, brightness and harshness from these interconnects. That last photo is a stock photo. Pictures:
  4. Item: Analysis Plus Oval 9 (purple) speaker cable 3 metre pair Location: Perth Price: $300 plus $15 postage Aust wide Item Condition: Very good. No oxidisation Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have had these for a number of years only to be superseded by the Black Mesh Oval 9. Bought this through Greg Osborne for around USD$600, however the updated version Black Mesh Oval 9 currently retails for Aus$1,250 for a 3 metre pair. Incredibly detail and smooth, with clear highs and bass is how I would described them. The speakers were factory terminated by Analysis Plus in the US. Pictures:
  5. Item: Eichmann Express 6 Series 2 interconnect with silver bullet plugs - 1 metre long Location: Perth Price: $100 plus postage Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Trying another IC. Need funds Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank transfer Extra Info: Fitted with the Eichmann famous silver bullet plugs. Recently cleaned with DeOxit. Sounds great but decided to try other IC a bit higher up with my phono preamp. Fitted with "grounded" EMF buffer system as quoted on the packaging. Will be sold with original packaging as per photo.

  6. Depending on how you like to position your speaker to your listening position I.e. near field or far, the size of the room might be irrelevant. After having said this, I think an average sized room is probably better. It will give it adequate room to ‘breath’.
  7. These are incredibly good speakers that leaves no stone unturned if you really want the very best in high end. He drives them with a high quality tube power amp. This is an incredibly great sounding speaker system. Regards Thim
  8. Everything hifi is kept in the man cave hence the need to perform some 'Marie Kondo' with the sale of the Genesis.
  9. Item: Genesis II Tower Speakers Location: Perth, WA Price: $25,000 negotiable Item Condition: Very Good to excellent Reason for selling: Time to clear up the 'Man Cave' Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank transfer Extra Info: The Genesis II was one of the best speakers that Genesis has ever built back in the days and needs no introduction. It is a system consisting of 4 free standing speaker towers. The mid-range and tweeters are housed in a stand alone cabinet that are over six feet tall, approximately 3 feet wide and fitted with twelve tweeter drivers and a 48-inch long ribbon mid-range. The bass section is housed in two seperate towers that contains four 12 inch bass drivers in each tower. All drivers and cabinets are in excellent to mint condition. The bass tower speakers are driven separately by a servo-bass Genesis amplifier. I am advertising the system on behalf of a friend, who is also a SNA member. He has owned this system since new. He is keen to sell them as he is running out of space in his ‘Man Cave’, which you can see from a number of the photos below with the actual speakers. The Man Cave looks like photos from Michael Framer’s ‘Den’ in one of his You Tube clips. He is more than happy for serious and genuine buyers to audition the system first before buying. Buyers will be fully responsible for the packing and freighting/transporting the speakers to their destination using their own trusted courier. Price is highly negotiable within reasons so it may be worth for you to take a trip to Perth if you are an interstate buyer who would like to own one of the best speaker system in the world and enjoy beautiful Perth at while you are here. Serious and genuine buyers please PM me. Specifications: Mid-range and Tweeter cabinets: Tweeters (1" circular ribbon) in the front and back, and the mid (48" ribbon) which works in a 'dipole' arrangement. Bass/woofer cabinets: 2 X tower cabinets with each tower equipped with 4 x 12" active servo woofers controlled by Genesis active servo amp. Woofers would go down to 20Hz with less than 1% distortion, which is a remarkable feat. Woofer amplifier: The servo-bass woofer amplifier is connected to the woofer towers by custom made Audio Quest cables which will be included as part of this sale. The cabinets are made of Brazilian Rosewood. Pictures:
  10. Item: CD Holders X 2 and BBQ Utensil set Location: North Perth Price: As listed below Item Condition: Used but very good condition Reason for selling: NLR BBQ recently sold. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: CD holder X 2 can hold 20 cds each. Both for $10. BBQ Utensil set in dedicated case. Hardly used so in genuinely good condition.

  11. Item: Rothweils UK made interconnect - 1 metre Location: Perth Price: $50 plus $10 postage in Oz Item Condition: Very good but please see comment below on one of the RCA plugs Reason for selling: NLR spare Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Current RRP $120 (Decibel Hifi). UK made Rothwells interconnect. 1 metre long. In very good condition except for one of the RCA plugs which leaves a 2mm gap when connected to the analog plug. This is due to the RCA plug being 2mm shallower. Depending on how fussy you are, the gap has zero impact on sound quality or sound level because the connection remains fully intact. I have been using this for a number of years, and strangely, had not notice the gap until someone pointed out to me. Pictures:
