  4. Amazing! After trawling through at least 4 phono pre amps over the past 10 years: Luxman Cambridge Audio Rega and Vincent ( with sep p supply); I decided to do something "silly" - I plugged my 301 (with Grace F8 Ruby) into the hitherto ignored gold plated phono input on my Onkyo Integra P304 (pictured). Time: 10.45 PM Voila! It sounded marvellous - great imaging, detail and separation. Goodbye Phono pre!! Plus, I can use the outdated non PC "tone control" to do all sorts of things to my lp's. This is from a piece of kit that is almost 40 years old... It has a huge transformer - better than the first four pre amps put together. Maybe there's something in this little detail. That's my "aha" thought for the day. Disclaimer: I can't afford a an expensive pre amp. If I could, I would have....

  14. Item: NVA AP50 INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER Location: RINGWOOD - VIC Price: $500 Item Condition: GOOD Reason for selling: MOVING ON Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD CAN POST Extra Info: 50 + 50 RMS AUDIOPHILE AMP; one of the nicest sounding integrateds I have owned or heard. Legendary status in the UK. Read: Sticking with the kind of two-ways likely to be used with an affordable solid-state integrated, I was overjoyed to learn that the AP50 avoided, like the plague, the kind of heightened hygiene, that aggravating sterility which too wham-bam-thank-you-m'am sessions suggest is true transparency. The AP50 strips away nothing, and I implore you to audition it with rich vocals if you want to learn just what it can do. Arm yourself with some Nat King Cole, Keb' Mo', Johnny Rivers, or Howard Tate to hear the most detailed textures, and Nanci Griffith or Joan Baez to hear unbridled clarity without glassiness. And that's one hell of an accomplishment at the price. Pictures:
