  1. Item: JJ Electronics 12AX7 tubes Location: Adelaide Price: Six tubes available, selling for $15 per tube, or buy 3 together and pay only $40 for 3 (or all 6 for $80). Item Condition: Very good, barely used, very quiet Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Some info from the 'net: ECC823 a hybrid 12AX7 / 12AU7 tube by JJ Electronics JJ Electronics ECC823 12AX7/12AU7 The ECC823 JJ Electronic twin triode is a 12AX7/12AU7 Hybrid The JJ 12AX7 ECC823 has been developed by JJ to try and help customers tame some of the gain in their amps. The first half of the triode is a 12AX7 and the second half is a 12AU7 allowing you to tame some of the gain coming through the amp. This tube is simply the reverse of the 12DW7 which is a 12AU7 in the first half and a 12AX7 in the second half. Typical of the JJ 12ax7 range, It has a rich and full tone with creamy distortion that does well in any 12AX7 application. This tube can be used in any 12AX7 application although think about what you are trying to achieve as there is a large range of tubes to meet most requirements. This tube would ideally be used in V1. I would love to take credit for finding this tube but it was a customer called it to my attention and after I researched the tube, I felt I had to try it.. The result: A great tube that does exactly what it says. I really enjoyed putting in into my amps and tube rolling against a few others. JJ Tubes are known for known for their high quality, durability, and their excellence in tone. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Complete bargain at the asking price, and potential buyers should note - the original retail price of $1200 from 1991-1994 mentioned above is referring to US dollars which meant they retailed for over A$2000 locally. GLWS.

  7. Nice speakers and great value for the money (I have their big brother, the Centaur Major) The reason for their weight are the heavy magnets used to suspend the aluminium/kapton ribbons in place. GLWS!
  8. Wow, on vinyl! As a huge fan of both the series plus vinyl replay, this one looks like a must for the collection!! Thanks for the heads up
  9. Just a heads up for any Adelaide post-punk fans out there who know Gang of Four. They are playing their influential "Entertainment" album in full at the Lion Factory in the city. Cant wait!!!
  10. Theres always a cheap flight option over to Adelaide to see them at our wonderful Governor Hindmarsh hotel venue...we are so keen that we are doing their show here plus the one in Melbourne, who knows when they might be back!! 😃
  11. Sorry, just read your post properly and realised you're in Melbourne!
  12. I am off to see him tonight in Adelaide at the Festival Theatre! Not sure if sold out but perhaps check it out. He is doing the whole Broken Skin album...cant wait!!
  13. Modern production tubes I have had good results with (and would recommend) are the TJ Full Music 12ax7's and the Genelex Gold Lion 12ax7, using in my Audio Research SP6B preamp which includes phono...
  14. Some good ideas to consider there...will discuss further when we catch up
  15. Thanks guys, yes my Apogees are line source so I need to think this through a bit further...Frank - any suggestions on how it might be possible to experiment with an absorbing cloud idea? The ceiling is so difficult (in my mind at least) to do any experimentation or am I overlooking the obvious? I am not specifically seeking a certain outcome, just overall better sound as described by Tobes experience..
