The base consists of a stainless steel pillar, the arm is made of carbon fibre and the bell is made of aluminium. This clever mix of materials guarantees resonance free behaviour resulting in seemingly gigantic sound spectra of vivid colours and rich detail. Effective weight reduction ensures that the friction in the single-point bearing approaches zero. The vertical and horizontal tracking angle are adjusted separately. The proven SIXSTREAM PLUS TONEARM CABLEused in the Unify provides an unbroken signal path. Any passionate audiophile cannot fail to be enchanted by the Unify.

  3. Item: Meadowlark Audio, Kestrel 2 Loudspeakers Location: Melbourne Price: $2200 Item Condition: Pristine Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can ship to anyone, anywhere, at purchasers expense ! Final Edition with Premium Factory Upgrades, include original boxes, grilles, spikes & manual Specification: 8ohms, 35hz - 40khz, 89dB @ 1m, 19kg each The flat out delightful Kestrel 2 are an entirely solid timber, U.S.A hand made, matched & serial numbered pair of 1st-order, time/phase-coherent transmission line loudspeakers. What separates them from virtually every other speaker I've experienced to date, (even those priced multiples of their original $4000 Aud. retail cost) is not the fact that they employ a unique, Impedance Coupled Bass loading transmission line system & 2" thick 'Double Decoupled' baffle. Nor is it the superb triple layer Peerless Woofers & Vifa ring radiator tweeters, pure annealed solid silver point to point wired & externally chambered crossover comprised of Perfect Lay ribbon inductors, 1% tolerance Caddock power resistors, premium Auricap film capacitors and pure copper Vampire bi-wire posts.... It's primarily their uncanny ability to 'disappear' once the music begins to play, as well as an accuracy of timing & tonality which is beguiling to say the very least !! They also command an exceptionally wide & flat frequency response which is simply astonishing for their physical size and/or price point. The pair I'm selling are virtually indistinguishable from brand new condition and additionally I have fitted the excellent bi-wireable Vampire Audio pure copper posts with the only possible enhancement, Cardas pure tellurium solid copper jumpers 😉 I'm willing to ship them (fully insured) anywhere at buyers expense. The following review expands on their salient qualities: Meadowlark Audio Kestrel 2 Review Photos: KESTREL 2 EXCLUSIVE REVIEW.pdf
  4. Item: Faital Pro HF-108 (8 ohm) 1" (Pair) & B&C DE-250 (8 ohm) 1" (Pair) Location: Melbourne Price: See below Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can ship to anyone, anywhere, at purchasers expense ! 1 pair each of Faital HF-108 (8 ohm) 1" and B&C DE-250 (8 ohm) 1" compression drivers. Exceptionally popular with DIY horn-speaker aficionados, both of these drivers are superbly smooth performers, with very uniform frequency response and excellent tonality aided by their Polymer (i.e: non-metallic) diaphragms. Both pairs are essentially as new and function as such, with perhaps 50 hours of use between them. I purchased (brand new) 4 pairs of different make/model compression drivers to measure and perform listening tests in a pair of horn speakers I've been developing, these 2 pairs are now surplus to requirements. The HF-108 cost ~$650 Aud. landed from USSpeaker.com http://www.usspeaker.com/Faital Pro HF108-1.htm Asking: $500 The DE-250 cost ~$520 Aud. landed from USSpeaker.com http://www.usspeaker.com/B&C-DE250-1.htm Asking: $370 Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  5. Emphatically yes ! Furthermore, these are equally excellent when used with cd players and many other electronic components which can benefit from vibration isolation and damping, as noted in the quote from the linked review.
  6. Item: Millenium Audio Vision Carbon Fibre CD Mat Location: Melbourne Price: $100 ($250 RRP.) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can ship to anyone, anywhere at purchasers expense ! In my experience the Millenium Carbon Fibre CD Mat most certainly makes an easily apparent and clearly positive perceived improvement to not only cd audio playback, but also that of blu-ray audio & video image quality. Furthermore it may be deployed whilst ripping cd's etc.. to hard disk storage to 'capture' the enhanced quality to archived/served music systems. The extent of the improvement may be subject to the nature of the individual playback device employed, so as with any audio 'tweak', your milage may vary etc....! The (award winning) review linked below further expands upon the nature & efficacy of this 'tweak' : http://www.stereomojo.com/MILLENNIUM CD MAT REVIEW/MillenniumCDMatReview.htm To quote- "That's unbelievable! That little thing made THAT much difference? I thought you had put in a whole difference amp or something. That's IT?" Brian, as usual, I had heard exactly the same thing, except I had noticed that the bass was also much firmer and detailed. The difference was not at all subtle and I was stunned by the improvement. We listened to the whole CD again and then a couple of more, amazed at how much more lifelike and musical the sound was. We even listened to the Stereomojo Evaluation CD and marveled at what we heard. We stayed up till about midnight. CD discs all sounded much less digital and much more like the finest analog. All I can tell you is that I will never play a CD again without the Millennium CD mat. It's that good”. Millenium Audio also make an excellent & highly regarded carbon fiber turntable mat (see image within my listing of a TW-Acustic turntable which I have listed elsewhere in the classifieds). Photos:
  7. Item: Moon Audio Blue Dragon Balanced TRRS Head Phone Cable, 1.5m - inc. unbalanced 3.5mm adaptor Location: Melbourne Price: $100 ($255 RRP.) Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can ship to anyone, anywhere, at purchasers expense ! Terminated at amp end only This cable has a 3.5mm TRRS plug at the amp end and is supplied with a 3.5mm Stereo adaptor so it can also be used with unbalanced sources. The headphone end is unterminated and is dressed so that it can be used to directly re-wire headphones, or could have plugs soldered to suit any requirement. The Blue Dragon Headphone Cable has been designed with Ultra Pure Single Crystal Copper conductors using the Ohno Continuous Casting Process. It is a good fit if you want to improve clarity and dynamics of your headphones and do not want to add coloration. Photos:
  8. Item: Kimber Kable USB Ag, Pure Silver Conductor cable - 1m. Location: Melbourne Price: $125 (RRP. $254) Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can ship to anyone, anywhere, at purchasers expense ! Typical superb Kimber Kable sound & build quality, with USB Type A -> Type B termination. "Mini BUS Ag cables utilize large gauge pure silver conductors in tandem with large gauge (6.1%) silver-plated copper drain and shield wires. A high performance high-density polyethylene (PE) dielectric is used on the signal conductors to maximize signal integrity. All Kimber Kable USB cables feature crimped and soldered shield to shell connection which helps reduce ground resistance variations." Photos:
  9. Item: Clearaudio MAGIX2 Magnetic Resonance Isolators (Levitation Footers) x8 - Two boxes of 4 devices. Location: Melbourne Price: $600 per set of 4 (RRP. $1300) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can ship anywhere, to anybody, at purchasers expense ! The Clearaudio MAGIX2 Magnetischer Resonanzedämpfer are the result of many years research in most effective means of reducing any acoustic feedback to the minimum. An absolute unusual feature of this principle is that the MAGIX2 in operating state reaches an automatic self-shielding of the magnetic field. With these deployed I was able to entirely eliminate any disturbances & feedback from a turntable arranged on a platform which was situated upon a suspended timber floor, even with large speakers in close proximity and high replay volumes. They are equally beneficial with any type of audio components which can benefit from isolation and/or damping. Dimensions: 111 mm x 105 mm Each device weighs 2.2kg and is height adjustable. To reach optimal resonance absorption it is necessary to coordinate the number of MAGIX2 relative to the weight of the component to be damped (and additionally the weight of an underlaying platform - if for example an acrylic plate or wooden board is also to be deployed under the component) Weight bearing capacity: 16 pounds (8kg’s) each (take the weight of the component, and platform if used, which you intend to isolate, and divide by 8 to determine the number of Magix you will need). From a sonic perspective, the Magix differ from other devices by what they don’t do. Most any isolation device imparts some sort of character of its own. That may be increased detail, more speed, a slight softening, added brightness, etc., etc. The Magix strips all those artifacts away, and leaves behind a sense of purity and air. Background silence is increased, subtle details are allowed to unfold rather than being forced out, and the music ebbs and flows with a naturalness that is alluring. Review: https://hifi-unlimited.blogspot.com/2009/08/levitate-your-music-clearaudio-magix2.html "So the CDP is levitated, but how does it sound? In a word, fantastic! It's probably THE most effective isolation device around. It doesn't really change the sound that much, but what little it does matters so much to the music. It allows your equipment perform to it's fullest without exhorting it's own character, which by comparison, the Finite Element Ceraballs do so to a certain extent(if over used, that is!). I can say that each musical instrument, vocal replayed via the system now has an added dimension to it. Like high hats has that brassiness to it. The piano seems more naturally real and violins have that little extra sheen to it's resonating body. Vocals have the extra body too. Best of all each and every instrument presented within the sound stage has that little bit of air around them, making them seemed free, un constricted." Photos:
  10. Item: DH Labs Power Plus AC Cables x 4 Location: Melbourne Price: See Below Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can ship to anyone, anywhere at purchasers expense ! Highly performance cables with unanimously positive reviews, the DH Labs Power Plus are built using high purity copper 12 gauge conductors wound in a noise cancelling geometry, they're also very flexible considering their high current capacity & thickness. I have 4 available: 2 x 1.5m with Wattgate 526i/320i series terminations, $180 Each 2 x 1.25m with Premium Furutech F-11M/G Au (24kt Gold Plated Pure Alpha Copper Conductor) series terminations, $275 Each Or take all 4 together for $900 😉 Photos:
  11. Item: DH LABS Revelation (Pure Silver) RCA Interconnect Pair - 1m. Location: Melbourne Price: $425 (RRP. $820) Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can ship to anyone, anywhere, at purchasers expense ! DH Labs Revelation is constructed with Six Pure Silver conductors in an interleaved helical array. Each conductor is individually insulated in an air-spaced, tape wrapped proprietary air-Teflon matrix insulation consisting of 60% air. The dielectric constant of this foamy-looking material is only 1.4 which is closer than most to the theoretically ideal dielectric. Each cable is carefully terminated with custom machined 99.3% pure copper locking rca plugs DH LABS Revelation Review "As markedly as the Revelation cables improved the sound, it was the improvement in musical coherence that impressed me the most. On some CDs where I had previously only heard disparate musical lines, I could now hear how those lines related to and played off of each other. As a non-musician, I have to admit that it surprised me just how evident this improvement now was. Putting the DH Labs Revelation cables in my system left me feeling that I had upgraded not only all my components, but the sonic quality of my entire CD collection as well." Photos:
  12. Item: TW-Acustic Raven One Turntable with TW-Acustic 10.5 Arm & Ortofon Cadenza Black MC cartridge, plus second arm collett for Linn/Clearaudio/Rega arms, AND More !!! Location: Melbourne Price: $10,000 (Retail ~$24K as advertised) O.n.o Prefer to sell as complete as listed, but may consider selling Ortofon cartridge individually (PM to discuss) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can ship, anywhere, to anybody, at purchaser's expense ! This incredibly well received, elegantly understated and yet hewn from a rock weighted (26kg) turntable is supplied with the latest power supply and speed control box which was originally an upgrade to the AC-3. It also employs Stillpoints footers and I'm including a Millenium Carbon fibre dual sided record mat. The Millennium M-LP-Mat Carbon LP Mat is a 0.3 mm laminated carbon-fiber disk with one side having a velvet-like surface where the record’s recorded surface rests. The other side is smooth, either of which can be used against the record surface. Complete with new factory shipping box for the turntable/accessories, and flight case for the tonearm so secure worldwide shipping is not an issue. The absolutely superb TW-Acustic 10.5 arm incorporates magnetic anti-skating and a "zero-float" VTA adjuster, a feature brought over from the design of the Raven Black Night turntable. The Raven 10.5’s VTA is adjusted via a smoothly operating collar assembly that sits around the arm post and under the bearing housing. Inside it is a set of plastic discs, made to within 0.001mm tolerances, that gently lift and lower the arm, depending on a control wheel that adjusts its 10mm of motion and thus enabling easily repeatable adjustments on the fly. The tonearm has been re-wired with TW-Acustic's most recent & improved design, a single continuous length from cartridge pins to the Neutrik rca terminations, now including dual earthing connections. The arm itself travels in its own rigid polycarbonate flight case which also holds the various counter-weights and both the factory protractor, as well as an additional MINT Tractor arm protractor that I'm including. These are custom specified for each tonearm and turntable combination, made using a reflective glass design which greatly facilitates a more effortless & optimum cartridge alignment. Furthermore I'm including an exceptionally low hour of usage (~90 hrs.) and genuinely flawless Ortofon Cadenza Black MC cartridge which was purchased new locally. Truly sublime sounding it employs a Boron cantilever, a Shibata stylus and gold plated copper coils... immediately apparent is its incredibly low noise floor on even older pressings, that combined with an expansive and see-through soundstage brings a new sense of life to even very familiar records. Also included is a spare belt and an ONZOW Zero Dust as well as the original box and accessories as supplied with the Ortofon Cadenza Black. Most pictures below have been gratuitously lifted from the internet as they represent the presentation of my turntable as listed, except that they have employed proper studio lighting and high resolution cameras far beyond that which I currently have access to ! The last 2 (iphone) photos are of the deck in-situ, and the Cadenza Black up close. For the sake of full disclosure to any prospective purchaser, I will state that there is one area of extremely minor blemish on the left hand side of the sub-chassis which is essentially unnoticeable even if pointed out. For those potentially interested who wish to seek some more salient information, I've provided a couple of links below to reviews/opinions of the items included in this sale: Re: Raven One http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/tested-tw-acustic-raven-one-turntable-3/ http://stereomojo.com/TW Acustic Raven One Review/TW_ACUSTIC_RAVEN_ONE_TURNTABLE_REVIEW.htm http://6moons.com/audioreviews/twa/ravenone.html Re: TW-Acustic Raven 10.5 Tonearm https://www.soundstageultra.com/index.php/equipment-menu/179-tw-acustic-raven-105-tonearm Re: Cadenza Black https://www.audioasylum.com/reviews/Phono-Cartridge/Ortofon/Cadenza-Black/vinyl/106/1064332.html https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?topic=131568.0 Re: Millenium M-LP Mat https://www.dagogo.com/millenniums-m-lp-mat-carbon-lp-mat-and-silentor-lp-weight-support-review/ Photos:
