  1. Item: Line Magnetic Mini 218IA EL34 Hifi Integrated Vacuum Tube Amplifier - silver Location: Melbourne Price: $690 Item Condition: as new Reason for selling: see bellow Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Pictures: can take if interest Extra Info: Bought new from Australian dealer Mcleans 23/11/16. Upgraded tubes to Gold Lions. Include current set GLs with about 200hrs on, original 12AX7s, and an brand new unused pair of matched Gold EL84s. Have original box. Have been very happy with this amp, It easily saw off a Hypex NC400, and is very quiet over my 100db horns. Only selling as soon moving to a room double my current size so need more power. And the baby about to start crawling so want to move away from tubes for a few years. Demos in Hurstbrige Melbourne welcome. Nice head amp too.
  2. Item: Wharfedale Jade C1s (x3); Jade SRs (x2). Surrounds and center are black wood veneer, L&R are black gloss. Location: Hurstbridge next 2 days, Kinglake-West VIC thereafter Price: $1850 (MRRP $6850) for all 5, various subs extra if required. Item Condition: Excellent, pretty much as-new cosmetically (the wood centre has slightly blemish underneath about size of grain of rice that doest come out in photo), and functionally they are as-new, lightly used at lowish volumes and always high-passed 80hz) Reason for selling: moving to our first house this weekend, consolidating to single system and too attached to our PSE-144s. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT. Extra Info: I bought these brand new about 2 years ago from a shop in Melbourne, been very happy with them in what was a multichannel mostly-music setup, now used very occasionally for movies since moving to a 2-channel system for music. They retail for $6850 (1700 centres and 1750 surrounds). I dont believe you would find a better sounding, better built 5 speakers for anywhere near the asking price. I have all boxes and packaging. Reviews of the rest of the line should give an idea of the Jade's sound, difference here being in LF extension. http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/wharfedale2/1.html http://www.stereophile.com/content/wharfedale-jade-7-loudspeaker#cWlIhmJbdjcJ5hJO.97 http://www.stereophile.com/content/wharfedale-jade-3-loudspeaker#6hcXWYwkWUM0ZrHH.97 http://www.cnet.com/news/the-british-are-coming-wharfedale-jade-3-speakers/ http://www.soundandvision.com/content/wharfedale-jade-7-speaker-system#eDRxIj3yfIicTfpp.97 http://hometheaterreview.com/wharfedale-jade-1-bookshelf-loudspeaker-reviewed/?page=2 http://www.whathifi.com/wharfedale/jade-5/review (I have a few pairs of DIY subs - 12" sealed and 12" tapped horn subs that I can sell with these if needed, with their necessary DSP amps. black wood veneer, L&R black

  4. Not the same, this is the ‘mini’ 3w version. Sells for 1k I believe.

  7. Item: pair passive 30hz tapped horns, Will Cowan design, built by Paul Spencer with brand new 12" Eminence Definimax driver Location: Melbourne north Reason selling: not using. Condition: DIY, never used. Pickup only, COD Price: $800 for both horns and both drivers. I had Paul build me two of these last year but my plans for speakers took a different direction so haven't had the need for these. The drivers were bought brand new and haven't been installed, other than Paul briefly installing one to measure the finished subs. He said they measure well, perhaps he has the graphs on file. Some plans and graphs can be seen here http://www.cowanaudio.com/th.html The finish is fairly rough, form ply, the subs designed to be out of sight. I can take more pics if anyone is interested. Could easily be sanded and coated with Duratex.
  8. Item: pair black LS50 Location: Hurstbridge Vic Price: $1200 firm Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: not using Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought these new when I was living in Scandinavia 2.5 years ago. They have been sitting there unused the last 2 years, and just shipped back to Melbourne with the last of my possessions. No cosmetic damage, they have been well looked after and kept behind grills as I'm forever paranoid about people touching my drivers. I will take measurements taken of both drivers at prior to sale for added peace of mind. I'm selling as I have some far more expensive horns I'm happy with, and need the funds. I've owned a number of pairs of LS50s in different countries over the last few years, needless to say that I like them. Demo's at my place welcome. Cheers Bevan I have original box, but preference given to local buyers.
  9. FS: Kef LS50 (black)

    Yes, still available.

    Hi Jim, I'll attach one took a few days ago. I can take more in better light tomorrow. I polished off the finger prints and couldn't see any blemishes to the finish, hard to take photographs but I'm happy to try. Cheers Bevan
  11. Edit - I see I titled it 5.1, it should read 5.0, i.e no sub included.

  13. Sorry thought I was writing you a pm rather than clogging up your thread
  14. Thanks for reply Matty. I recal reading in a 6moons review that the 70->70.2 mod necessarily lost the ability to control gain. Im still sitting on the fence a bit, but hope to get back to you with an answer. If you do choose to sweeten the offer in the meantime would you give me a heads up? cheers Bevan
