  1. Item: Pioneer VSX-D512 5.1 channel A/V receiver Location: Croydon North, Victoria Price: $100 Item Condition: Used. Some light scratches (see photos) Reason for selling: Deceased estate - surplus to requirements (too many AVRs) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash only Extra Info: Up for sale is a glorious Pioneer VSX-D512 A/V receiver. It has no HDMI inputs, but has a 5.1ch analog input suitable for any analog source. It has a reasonably decent 500W power supply, suggesting those watts may actually be a bit more genuine than I originally thought. The unit weighs around 9kg. It was purchased new by my father and was lightly used for some home theatre duties. This is an ideal amp if you want something for a small entertainment system that has an analog multichannel source eg, Oppo Blu-Ray player, HTPC with 6ch analog out, etc. It also has two digital inputs (one coax, one optical). Includes manual, remote, AM radio antenna (not sure what happened to the FM, but any standard TV antenna will work and I've got a spare you can have if you're desperate). I have the original box (yay) but none of the original packaging that came inside the original box (boo!). *Really* hesitant to ship, as I'd a) need to wrap the thing in a Whole Lot Of Bubble Wrap, but if I have no local offers, I'll consider the option.

  2. My grandfather had a manual for a Rola 77 of some description in his collection. Sadly. I believe he moved the tape machine on (he had a Realistic tape machine at the time of his passing). He had the Plessey service centre details handwritten on the manual. He was a film editor at the ABC so perhaps he acquired it from the station.
  3. Sadly I think this is unlikely to fall through to the point where I have the opportunity to buy, but the thought crossed my mind if I can't get a local friend to pick it up for me. Statistically, I'll be waiting another three years for one of these to go up for sale again
  4. If you will ship to Melbourne, I have the cash ready to go. I'll be #3 in line. Edit: have someone in Sydney who will pick this up for me. I literally check these forums multiple times a day hoping for one of these. ugh.
  5. That's a sensational price! If this were in Melb, I'd be snapping this up within two cycles of a 20Hz test tone.
  6. Have the crossovers been refurbished as well? When did the new tweeters go in?
  7. Argh. Bother. Just came here to send you a PM to buy. Whoops!
  8. I've been keeping an eye out for either one of these (or the 30.5, due to cheaper price and already have two A32s for the rest), an Elektra Theatre HD2 or - the end game (for me) the Denon POA-A1HD. I can't justify anything bigger or higher end. Is the top black or silver as well? How deep is the unit? It'll look awesome next to the silvre A32s and the R32 pre Curious to know what you upgraded to!
  9. Oooohhh this one is in silver!! and 7 channels! And XLR! Hmmmmmmmm..... Hmm. What did you upgrade to?
  10. So tempting! Was hoping for a pair of these to come up when I get my own place next year... Perhaps if I sold my N804s... hmm... where in Melbourne are they located?
  11. Heya, Thanks for the info. Will give that a shot! Cheers, Tristan
  12. Wow! This was the top of the line dream processor for me when this came out (and I bought the Onkyo 595). I since ended up with a 989 which has been relegated to three channel power amp duties. I'd consider it if I wasn't a little overstocked on home theatre boxes. Oh, also, 'dat motorised door, yo! Brings a smile to my face every time on the 989. Good luck with the sale!
