Only signs of hainv been plugged in Reason for selling: New Preamp and Power Amp Balanced Inputs only. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Best cable I have ever had. Sad to see it go as I am losing a fortune. These are now $1295 new. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Item: Klei gZero 10 Interconnect 1 meter RC & Klei gZero 6 Speaker Cales 2.5 Meters Location: Barossa Valley Price: Was $650 now $550 for the gZero 10 IC and was $550 now $450 for the gZero 6 SC plus shipping which want be much as they are rather petite. Item Condition: Excellent just the usual been used aspect. Reason for selling: New Preamp and Power amp are Balanced Inputs only (sadly Klei do not make balanced cables) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are the best cables I have ever had in my life and I am sad to see them go. You may ask why is he getting rid of the speaker cables and not just the IC? I do have a weird thing about synergy and prefer to keep my new cables from the same manufacturer. I don't even know what I am getting yet. Any suggestions? Pictures:
  3. Item: Magico S1 Mk1 Location: Barossa Valley Price: $6900 ono Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Raising Funds to build home Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are 4 years old. Detailed and transparent without being edgy. Being a sealed enclosure they work well even in smaller spaces. Will not ship interstate as packaging for freight is rather fragile. Pick up from Barossa Valley or deliver to Adelaide and environs. I am raising funds to build my new home and if these sell will also be selling my Vitus RI-100 amp and Vitus RCD-101 Cd Player. If anyone wants to buy the lot make me an offer around the $16500 mark. Pictures:
  4. Yes it is the TF-1 Have not had anything to compare with but to my ears sounds even, not bright yet detailed.
  5. Item: Valab Phono Preamp Location: Barossa Valley Price: $250 plus shipping Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is an excellent phono preamp with separate power supply, can take MC and MM cartridges. Buyer to pay for shipping. Do not have original boxes but will pack safely. Pictures:
  6. Shane I will be happy to take your cd stands. Detlev
  7. Item: Funk Firm LSD Little Deck with F5 Tone Arm and Zu Denon MC Cartridge. Location: Barossa Valley SA Price: $1850 firm Item Condition: 99%, basically new although a couple of years old. Only used for about 50 hours if that. Reason for selling: Just can't get into the Black Magic Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought this as I had a couple hundred of records but abandoned them for digital. Still can't get into it. Not that it sounds bad, just like the ease of digital. This was set up by Magenta Audio. I have played less than 50 hours on the whole rig. Comes with Achromat Matt as well. Prefer Adelaide sale but have shipping box etc. Shipping will be at buyers expense. Willing to trade for a lesser table as I will keep my LP and play my records occasionally. Pictures:
  8. Lee Sometimes equipment with greater resolution will highlight weaknesses in the rest of the equipment but more me than likely highlight the weakness in the recording and mastering. Not hardware but software. That's why you see so many with ultra hifi systems constantly looking for Special LP's and CD's. All the arguments re sound, eg LP sounds better than CD, is meaningless without looking at the effort made during the recording process. I have a perfectly good turntable and cartridge yet many of my LP's sound like sh.. while some CD are just fantastic as are some LP.
  9. Item: Xavian Bonbonus Location: Barossa Valley Price: $300 firm plus postage Item Condition: 9.5/10 Reason for selling: Never get used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought these on a whim with perhaps setting up a second system. No space or inclination any more. These are however the most amazingly put together little speakers. The Veneer work is exceptional. Only listened a couple of times (not even run it) and they have a lovely even sound. Not bright at all. The equal of small cheaper Sonus' in my opinion. Note: The packaged weight of these are 10.8 kilos if you want to work out postage. Pictures:
  10. Item: Valab AM3 Integrated Amplifier 50wps Location: Barossa Valley Price: $200 firm and postage Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Time to move it on as I am not using it. Sits in the garage waiting for a happy owner. And it doesn't compete well with my Vitus R!-100 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a great little amp with amazing build quality. Note they do not come with remote but with really cool power meters. Compared it to a Cyrus integrated at a GTG once and it was easily as good sound wise. Build wise better. These still sell over the Net for about $500US. Note: Packaged weight is 8.6 kilos. So you can work out freight from there. Will make a denotation to SNA once I sold along with Xavian Bonbonus in another listing. Pictures:

No boxes so Barossa or Adelaide location sale only. In great condition despite age. Never abused. Pictures:
  13. Item: VAF DCX Location: Barossa Valley Price: $550 ono Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Selling for an acquaintance who is moving to a smaller home Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Excellent condition. No boxes so local or Adelaide sale only. I think they are Gen 2. Will deliver to Adelaide. Pictures:
  14. Having heard several iterations of Darth's system over a period of a few years I can now say without a shadow of a doubts that as of now it is the best it has ever been. I had the pleasure this evening to listen to the system again and I am awed. Such palpability, breathing dimensional singers and instruments. The lack of distortion is fantastic and makes you realise that much of what we hear in our systems are just artifact sounds masking what is really behind the recording and signal. Well done Mark and I really think you can put upgraditis behind you. Thanks for a pleasant evening.
