  1. Wow so this is a full spec Amber 2 but with analog in & volume control - a preamp? Nice

  3. 1962 Denon Nippon Columbia 12ay7/6072 Valve Phono-stage, SUT & Separate Valve Rectified Power Supply (Price Drop) Location: Wellington New Zealand Price: $4,250.00 $3,900.00 $3,500.00 AUD Item Condition: Vintage refurbished 100V Step-down Transformer Required Reason for selling: I have 2 & keeping 1 forever Payment Method: Pickup - International Delivery - Cash, Paypal, COD 1962 Denon Nippon Columbia Valve 12ay7/6072 Phono-stage model AP - D78A including a switchable pair of Tamura 351 moving coil step up transformers separate valve rectified power supply. This is as rare as high quality usable vintage audio equipment gets. Originally built in the early 1960's and designed for radio station broadcast use, matched with the Denon 103 moving coil cartridge (still in production today). The specs for this phono stage work with many quality cartridges including Denon, EMT, Koetsu & others, easy to match. The circuit is updated using an Audio Note design to provide the dynamics & bandwidth demanded by modern audio systems & recordings. The undeniable fact is "they knew how to wind transformers back then". High quality audio grade components used throughout including Audionote capacitors. The sound is spectacular. The definition is razor sharp but never brittle or fatiguing. Bass slam is stunning. This is the total package. I have owned many systems but never before have I honestly said the speakers disappear. In one recording the conga player was 2 x meters outside & beyond the right speaker (system dependent). A superb moving magnet valve phono-stage, combine that with a switchable pair of original 351 Tamura moving coil step transformers worth well over $500.00 & this is a giant killer. In a recent audition it spanked a new phono-stage worth more than twice the asking price. It comes with the best of the best balanced GE triple mica blackplate 12ay7/6072 tubes, also spare sets of GE greyplates & the second best a set of NOS balanced RCA 12ay7. High quality NOS Philips rectifier. I will throw in some new production tubes as well. Over $600.00 worth of tubes. Only selling as I built 2 & will be keeping the other one forever. Grab a once in a lifetime chance to own a modernized piece of audio equipment history & then settle back to hear what your record collection was supposed to sound like........

  4. Item: Antique Sound Labs AQ-1009 Cadenza 845 Mono Block Amplifiers. (PRICE DROP) Location: Wellington New Zealand Price: $3,500.00 AUD Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Give a 500 watt McIntosh a go Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Extra Info: Antique Sound Labs AQ-1009 Cadenza 845 Mono Block Amplifiers. A rare chance to own this substantial pair of amplifiers. Both freshly serviced & main power tubes only a couple of months old these beauties are good to go for many years of music pleasure. The 845's are the great sounding Psvane with Genalex Gold Lion KT77 & Sylvania 4003 driver tubes. I have tried many tube combinations & this one sounds fantastic. The front meter & adjustment screws for bias & hum make adjustments a breeze They have been used to power many speakers including JBL 4350A studio monitors, TAD 1006/4002, JBL L100, JBL Urei 813BX studio monitors & most recently JBL L300. Don't be fooled by the 60watt output they have tones of power. I have loved every minute with these amplifiers. They are tall & heavy & will make a real visual & musical statement in the center of your system. TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS Output Power - 60W Frequency responsible at 1 W - 15Hz - 45KHz Distortion at 1W - < 0.5% Distortion at full power - < 3% Frequency responsible at full power - 20Hz - 25KHz S/N Ratio / Noise level mV - 80 db /2.5mV S/N Ratio with A weighting - 92 db (0.6mV) Input impedance - 100K Output Impedance - 4,8,16 Ohm Input sensitive - 1V Power request - 400W Fuse - 5A Slow blow Power cord - Detachable /Fixed - Detachable Input Sockets - RCA Gold Plate Output terminal - 5 Way Gold Plate Heavy duty Chassis Finish - Black Steel Front Panel Finish - Black Anodizing Tube Complement - 845 x 2,EL34 x 2,12AU7 x 2 Dimension W x D x H in mm - 455 x 320 x 215 Shipping Dimension W x D x H in mm - 514 x 400 x 320 Net Weight /Kg - 29Kg Shipping Weight /Kg - 32Kg Only selling as I have (after many years of tube power) decided to try a monster 500 watt per channel McIntosh amplifier. I hope they will give you as much pleasure as the have me....
  5. Hi The SUT's are the 2 x black cylinders located on the end of the phono stage. They have dedicated toggle switches that allow them to be used for MC cartridges or can be switched out of the system to play MM. Please see the photo attached of the unpainted SUT's circuit diagram. I think they are 1:10. Plenty of gain for a Denon 103R or EMT MC. There is one switchable input on this unit but I may be convinced to sell my ECC88 version that has both MC or MM inputs. PM me to discuss offline.

Known as the only Japanese EMT this thing is a beast. In restored condition this is one of the finest turntables on the planet. A simple stripping of unnecessary electrical gear re-bushing, adjust & either re-mount in the cabinet or build a modern audiophile plinth (as I have done with my own turntable). This is an end game turntable - you will not be disappointed..... I have included a couple of photos of my completed turntable so you can see what it looks like restored. I can put you in touch with a gentleman who will take care of the restoration for you if required Photos:

  9. The Denon is selling this morning. If you want this piece of audio history you will need to be quick. https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=2211502451
  10. Would consider trading for a substantual power amp cash either way - WHY?
  11. This phono stage has the ability to pick out the minute detail in music like the sound of the snare brush as it scrapes the skin & touches the rim in Nathan Haines fabulous recording on the record shown below. Detail is is located solidly in the sound-stage no matter the density of the piano & wind instruments & other dynamic sounds. Speakers disappear leaving the individual instruments located in your listening room with complete realism...
  12. Here is a list of great questions & answers FYI This is 230/240 vac operation? - 110 volt operation requires a stepdown for 240 The rectifier tube is what? - Philips Dario 6X4 Two 12ay7 in the phono cct? One per channel! - 2 x 12ay7/6072 1 per channel plus 1 x 12ay7/6072 split so 3 x tubes in total The Mc transformer is included and part of the unit? - Yes 2 x original Tamura 351 SUT fitted in the unit So input into this phono is MC direct? - The unit is MM direct with a switch per channel to engage the SUT's Any MM input to bypass the step up transformer? - yes no problem switchable between the MM/MC 1 x input What are choke and power transformer? Japan manufacture? Original? Brand? - Sorry dont know the choke. Power transformers are Nippon Columbia (Denon), Japanese manufacture 1962 unmolested transformers. original. Brand is Nippon Columbia. They were originally mounted in a 1962 RP 53 turntable broadcast turntable cabinet which I still have including the turntable (if your interested). Modern Audionote topography using the original iron. Delivery to Melbourne possibility? - Sure no problem I have shipped many things to OZ including an Aura turntable Questions welcome
