  1. The stock 650 cable is $20 delivered from Sennheiser at the moment.
  2. Item: Mutec MC3+USB Location: Moonee Ponds Price: $1000 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought this recently to be a part of a computer streaming set up that was still in the planning stage. At the moment I have it plugged in via optical from an oppo bd player to the mutec and then via coaxial to a separate dac. I don’t quite understand how it all works but apparently it provides much better clicking data than the original source can provide and substantially reduces jitter. Actually, looking at the website it does a whole lot of stuff that's beyond my understanding. From what I read what the Mutec does is mostly utilised in computer based systems but even in my simplistic set up it does make a difference with definite improvements in air, micro detail, soundstage and making everything sound a little more ‘real’. In the scheme of things I’m probably using it in its least effective configuration. My plan was to set up a computer streaming system but I’ve since decided that the old Toshiba lap top I was going to use probably isn’t an ideal place to start. Rather than go down the rabbit hole of building a hole new computer system I reckon I might give someone else the opportunity to experience the benefits the Mutec can provide. There’s a plethora of reviews and positive comments on the net about the Mutec as well as a couple of very informative YouTube videos. Mine is in excellent condition and comes with cabling, manual, packaging and even a Mutec ballpoint pen. Mine was a genuine Aus import sold locally by the Aus importer. All indications from the paperwork is that it is still within the two year warranty period. I think it’s the very latest version as the screen printing on the front is the same as the one on the Mutec website. There’s been few sales of these on Sna with the two most recent being where I based my price. I can post at buyer’s expense. According to users this thing is the duck’s guts for computer systems or any system where digital data is transferred. If it doesn’t sell I’m happily use it in the current configuration but can’t see myself making full use of it at the moment. Photo as below, can send more if required. It’s sitting on top of my oppo 103 and has a USB drive on top. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. @cazzesmanwas mostly correct. Atc scm40’s, wish they were 50’s but that’s not to be for a while. Modwright LS100 pre with inbuilt phono. Yep, the Mutek did make a difference. It only took me a few seconds to confirm that. He neglected to mention that he got to hear a Sheffield Labs Direct to Disc of Tower Of Power LP followed by the Sheffield Labs CD version of the same track. I reckon he might even publicly admit that the CD version was as flat as a tac by comparison. In the end I’ve put a WTB up for a Mutek and will listen to vinyl on my modded P25 with my new Acoustical Systems Fideles MM cartridge which by the way was a big step up from a 2M black. Check out Whyndmam audio and/or SGR audio for more info on the fideles.
  4. Item: Graham Slee Reflex M with psu Location: Moonee Ponds Price: $650 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: have inbuilt phono in my pre Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Selling my Graham Slee reflex M phono preamp with the large PSU. First owner and comes with packaging. Only selling as I have a very competent phono stage in my Modwright pre. Terrific phono stage that has seen off a few others including a Primare phono stage. Very good condition with one small mark on a front edge which is only visible close up. Can post. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  5. For those who don't know John Barbuto is JB of JB hifi. He had all sorts of JBL's back in the day and a few years ago he was still having cabinets made by Aranmar Acoustics for his JBL collection.
  6. Item: Ortofon 2M BLACK Location: Moonee Ponds, Melbourne Price: $400 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have an Ortofon 2M black for sale. I've had this for about five years and I reckon it's seen probably a half a dozen full records a month. Some months it wouldn't get much use at all and others probably a bit but all up I reckon average out about a half a dozen records (both sides) a month. Bank on about 400 hours or so. I'm selling as I've upgraded to something else and I can't see the sense in just putting the 2M in the cupboard. Comes with packaging and most of the bits and pieces apart from the cantilever protection plastic thingy and one of the short screws. Can post at buyer's expense. New price is around $880 now. I can't demo as I have the new cart fitted and the guy who was good enough to fit it for me would neck me if I took it off. PM me if you're interested.

  7. 1981 GH sigma by Mitsubishi. Often mistaken for the Peter Wherret which was a 2.6 normally aspirated with recaro seats and Momo steering wheel whereas the turbo was an SE with standard seats, 2.0 turbo, same 15” wheels as the Wherrit and similarity disc brakes all around. I had a couple of the Wherrets over the years but not a turbo. I recall reading a review which summarised that although they were very powerful it was all or nothing and they generated a whole lot of heat under the bonnet.
  8. Perth to Melb is cheap.
  9. ATC actives for me over the past four years. Won't go back. Dialled in with JL subs an active ATC centre speaker. Have to make do with passive ATC's as HT rears though, what a let down! 🙂
  10. I can’t believe these haven’t sold yet. They’re a steal at the price. In a few short weeks SGR will be displaying these at the Hifi show with an asking price of $33,000, yes folks, $33,000. Cazzesman is asking almost 60% off that price. When you go to the show and decide to buy a pair you don’t want to be the one who’s missed out on these at a fantastic price. They are in sensational condition, have been fully upgraded and come with warranty. Even out of warranty SGR still offer terrific service and probably a free lunch. If you are thinking about these send the seller a PM, he’s a great bloke and really looks after his gear. Hell, make him a reasonable offer, he can only say no if it’s too low.
