  1. I've got the BP25 with the MPS2 power supply and, as many preamplifiers I have tried, I always end up going back to the Bryston! Best of luck with the sale. Whoever gets it won't be disappointed..
  2. Further information: Cable has been used for 4 weeks only when my previous transport failed. New transport hasn't got XLR digital transfer so cable was stored and not used. Perhaps someone else here would like to use it. It's well made with gold plated pin arrangement and I am sure the new owner will not be disappointed with its performance, especially at this price level. Light item so postage won't brake the bank. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. A restorator's dream this one! Beautiful gear in their day..
  4. Hi there! Private message has been sent with intention to buy. I live near you so pick up will be in person and payment in cash. Tnx!
  5. Just my two bob worth.. ..at this price I would hire a small(ish) van and drive to Melbourne. This could add to the price around $100 plus fuel.. I did the same (from Sydney) when I bought (from Melbourne) my rather large and heavy speakers. Glad I did!
  6. No, not at all you're not in "la la land" Lol! This price won't buy you anything new that is even close to the Ruarks. Besides, in the condition they are, they qualify as collectors items.
  7. These are absolutely great with Classical music too! Their PRaT performance is up there with the best and leave some *modern* speakers standing.. Had a pair of these many years ago and they were given to my daughter who's still enjoy them. Someone will be pleasantly surprised with these. Best of luck with the sale.
  8. What a day! What weather! What a meeting! When I arrived with an hour to spare before the appointed time for the meeting, there were only a small handful of people, mostly committee members, wondering if anyone was going to turn up at all! Given the atrocious weather with heavy rain and strong wind bursts no one could be blamed for staying home. However... .. within the next hour quite a number of (brave) members turned up to make for a respectable number of attendees , and rightly so! We were all rewarded with an excellent presentation ( some said, one of the very best) we have ever had in the Club for years. David Corazza from 'Sound & Music' of Melbourne, an excellent communicator, conducted the first half of the meeting with interesting, informative, humorous and sometimes controversial commentary. He certainly has the ability, knowledge and passion to keep his audience's attention for the entire event. My gratitude - and I am sure that of many others - for making the long trip from Melbourne to treat us with such fine equipment, music and challenging thoughts. Regarding the actual system on display, the obvious benefits of extremely low distortion from the Benchmark electronics ( DAC and Power Amps), were evident. The large Dali s responded favorably producing a dynamic full range sound that filled the listening room effortlessly. Sure, this was not what one calls a budget system but it confirmed what many audiophiles say, "one gets, what one pays for"... All in all, a very entertaining Sunday afternoon for the ones attending. My personal thanks also to the committee members for their efforts in organizing and setting up the event, despite the weather. Well done guys! Looking forward to the next one!
  9. Heavens! This is almost a giveaway.. A great sounding DAC and very versatile with connectivity. Sounds great also when used as a digital source preamplifier. Someone will get a bargain here! GLWS
  10. All good! Thanks for the response and GLWTS
  11. Would you consider separating the two units and posting to Sydney? I am only interested on the CDplayer and the remote. Thanks!
  12. LOL! Yes I know.. ..I have the BP25 with the MPS2 power supply and ..( keep that a secret..), when no one is looking I take off the Audio Research and connect the Bryston!. MAGIC! Too many preamplifiers already over the years!
  13. This is one hell of a preamplifier! In my opinion, as solid state preamps go, you will have to search hard to find one that outperforms it.. at any price! The h/phone amp in it is excellent too! GLWS.
