  1. SOLD: FS: Awesome BIG Open Baffle Bass towers

    I’m sure we could organize something agreeable to the seller! Cheers ’Nutz
  2. Item: Parasound A21 Power Amplifier Location: Gosford will ship Price: $2000 Item Condition: few marks but 100% operationally. Reason for selling: Not used. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Superb sounding amplifier. Cosmetically it is stained in some areas with something that I just can’t remove, no matter what I use. Luckily it seems to be mostly on the rear panel. This model also has outputs on each channel at the rear to run additional Amplifiers or active subs. Each output has its own attenuation so you can tailor the output to match the equipment. Sound quality is dynamic and with excellent bass drive. Midrange is on the warm side and highs are clear and extended with very little coloration.

  6. Item: Cyrus III Remote Integrated Amplifier Location: Gosford NSW Price: $395 Item Condition: good Reason for selling: not used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Good little amp. Marked with phono inputs but can’t confirm it has a phono stage. Good condition and packs a surprisingly big punch for a smaller unit. The Cyrus III is a conservatively rated 50W per channel integrated amplifier designed to become the core of a quality audio system. Following in footsteps of its well respected Cyrus I & II, the Cyrus III has moved on to address the life style requirements of the 90s as well as having the ability for expansion into a fully integrated audio-visual system. As a first upgrade, a PSX-R will enhance the overall performance of the Cyrus III both in quantity and quality. Cyrus III features high grade SMD components throughout which assist in topology optimisation resulting in shorter signal paths. This is highly desirable in a quality audio amplifier in helping reduce a multitude of complex distortions and adverse interaction with the environment. A major design mandate of the amplifier was the total symmetry of the design. This has been substantially achieved throughout the phono, line and the power amplifier sections. The true symmetry is particularly important in the power amplifier stage, that handles high signal currents, to provide stable image and accurate localisation cues. A sophisticated 180VA toroidal power transformer forms the essential part of the Cyrus III advanced linear Power supply system. The “zero-mechanical-noise” core design of this transformer ensures high performance within an unusually wide AC mains voltage. The patented slotted-foil reservoir capacitors dispel circulating eddy currents in the foil reducing the ESR as well as substantially increasing the effective power supply bandwidth as seen by the amplifiers. Technical Information Electrical Line inputs - 4 + Tape Phono inputs - MM Outputs - Loudspeakers, Tape-out, Preamp-out Power Supply - 180VA Toroidal transformer with 6 regulated rails External - Highly regulated PSX-R upgradeable Communications - MC-BUS™ System BUS Remote Control - Full function remote control facility Specifications Continuous Power - 50W/CH (both driven into 8 Ohms) 70W/CH (both driven into 4 Ohms) With PSX-R - 57W/CH (both driven into 8 Ohms) 90W/CH (both driven into 4 Ohms) Current - 30 Amps peak to peak Distortion - 0.01%, 1kHz (into 8 Ohms) 0.03%, 1kHz (into 4 Ohms) Frequency Response - -3 dB, 2Hz and 80kHz Damping Factor - 100 Sensitivity (50W) - MM: 2.75mV Line: 200mV Input impedance - 10Kohm (RCA), 22Kohm (BAL) Output voltage - 200mV (Tape out), 380mV (Pre out) S/N Ratio - MM: 80dBA (ref. 5mV) Line: 98dBA (ref. 500mV) Dimensions - (H x W x D) 73 x 215 x 360 (mm) Weight - 4.6kg Finish - Black Pictures:

Location: Gosford NSW Price: $595.00 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: Deceased estate Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Belonged to a recently deceased Audio friend, who’s brother has asked me to help sell his Audio gear. Highly reviewed player that does HDCD as well as Redbook. And can Drive an amplifier directly with remote volume control, as well as operating as a standalone DAC.

  9. Item: Gryphon Tabu Century with Remote Location: Gosford NSW Price: $3550.00 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: Selling on behalf of deceased estate. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This amp belonged to a friend who sadly passed away. His brother has asked me to sell some of his audio equipment. Typical Gryphon house sound. Smooth, dynamic and above all - very musical.

  10. Lightspeed Attenuator

    Another long term Lightspeed convert here as well. Many, many, many Preamplifiers have passed through my system(s) over the years. Yet the Lightspeed consistently and stubbornly remains my "go to" component for volume control. It really is the elusive "straight wire with gain". The only thing I've found better is no Lightspeed at all! To explain - if you have a source with remote volume control built in. And "if" it has sufficient output to drive your power amp. "If" it does so in a linear and seamless fashion without bit-stripping, well then you'll be hearing everything your source can offer without coloration or interference from anything other than your connections. Lots of "if's" in that equation and it's rare to find a combination that fulfils all ones requirements. The Lightspeed is now a mature and refined product that has stood the test of time. It's been attacked online from almost every angle possible, but remains standing proud as one of the few components I'll never do without. Those that know of the "rapidly revolving door" that is my system, will realise just how unusual that is for me ! The Stereophile "recommend components" rating for the Lightspeed is well earned.

  12. Item: Vintage Wharfedale SFB/3 (sand filled baffle) Corner Cabinets and Drivers Location: Gosford NSW Price: 350 Item Condition: As seen Reason for selling: Running out of room Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are just too good to break up and throw out - I just cant do it ! Two corner cabinets as seen, with 4 x sand filled corner panels, each weighing approx. 30Kg and still filled with sand from the 60's ! 2 x 15" Wharfedale W15/RS drivers, along with the two smaller cabinets that sit on the top with their own 10" drivers (one damaged cone) and housing the crossovers (which are full of vintage caps and resistors) I'll also include an immaculate pair of Wharfedale Super 12/RS Drivers at the asking price. This is a crazy good deal but, you must collect it all from Gosford NSW 2251. I wont pack and ship sorry, its all too heavy and too delicate. Plenty more detailed pics available, just ask. Pictures:

    Understood - good luck. Killer amp with genuine serious power. Cheers 'Nutz
