  1. Further information: I bought this little unit here on the classifieds for use with my ATH-M50 headphones (a great combination, btw) but in reality it didn't end up with much use at all. It's in great condition, fully functional, and comes in its' box and complete with case and end cap. Price does not include postage but $12 will cover it in an AusPost satchel Australia wide. Cheers and thanks for looking! Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Further information: Regretful sale, my pair of ATH-M50 headphones which I bought new from an authorised Australian vendor a couple of years back. In excellent condition, no marks or scratches and the headband and ear cups are clean and in very good nick. These have seen little use since I bought them so present very well. As a bonus, I will include the perspex headphone stand as seen in the pics. Postage is available at buyers' cost, not heavy so I'd estimate $15 Australia-wide. Cheers and thanks for looking!

  3. Further information: Here I have three 10.5" reels of 1/4" Ampex tape, one 10.5" reel of 1/2" tape and one empty Ampex reel. I used to have a Revox B77 Mark 2, and I bought these to use with it, thinking perhaps of making some mixtapes off vinyl. However I ended up selling the Revox (although now I wish I hadn't) so the tape is now surplus to needs. I never ended up using the tape at all actually, so have no idea what (if anything) is on them. The four full reels are as follows: 1 X Ampex 456 Grand Master, 10.5" reel, 1/2" tape, nab hub, in box. There is writing on the box, but the tape itself is still in it's plastic wrap. The reel is labelled Ampex Grand Master 456; 1 X Ampex 20:20+, 10.5" reel, 1/4" tape nab hub, in box. Box in excellent condition, tape and reel still in plastic wrap, possibly NOS. The reel is labelled 20:20+ 373; 1 X Ampex Precision Magnetic Tape 10.5" reel, 1/4" tape, nab hub, in box. There is a sticker on the box stating 456 and writing on the back of the box. The reel itself is simply labelled Ampex and is in very good condition; 1 X Ampex 456 Grand Master 10.5" reel, 1/4" tape, nab hub, unboxed. The reel is labelled Ampex 456 Grand Master and is in excellent condition. The empty take up reel is, as above, a 10.5" reel for 1/4" tape, labelled Ampex, in very good condition apart from a small scratch on the face towards the outer edge. So, one for the tapeheads then. I'm happy to post at buyers expense, will just need to source a suitable box for them all. My preferred payment method is EFT. Cheers and thanks for looking!

  4. Further information: Terrific little USB DAC/headphone amp which I bought directly from Schiit perhaps a year ago. I'd intended to use it in the study/spare room but this never really eventuated; it's had about two hours' use at the most. It's unmarked and as-new, with box/packaging and cable. The little use it's had, was driving a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50's, which was a fun combination using Tidal as the source. It also has a pre-out so can be used with powered monitors or even a power amp. I'd think it will fit an Aus Post large satchel, so postage if required would be $15.30. Cheers and thanks for looking!

  5. Further information: A pair of Mogami Gold RCA interconnects, 12 ft in length. Brand new, unused and unopened. Have been sitting in a drawer since I bought them. From memory, I got these to use as subwoofer cables, but ended up going balanced instead. These are selling online for about $60 each, so half price! Postage is fine at buyers' expense. They'll fit in a PostPack no problems. Cheers and thanks for looking. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  6. Further information: This is a 5 metre pair of highly regarded Mogami 2549 balanced cables, professionally terminated with Neutrik nc-fxx/nc-mxx XLR connectors. I bought these new off a pro-audio supplier maybe six months ago. I had a system setup in mind that required a long cable run between pre and power amps. This setup never eventuated so these cables are surplus to requirements and have not been used. If I'm not mistaken, the Neutriks are made in Leichtenstein, the Mogami cable in Japan. In as new condition. I'm happy to post at buyers expense, I'd think $20 would cover it to anywhere in Oz. Cheers and thanks for looking!

  7. Further information: For sale is a pair of Aurealis Audio 4NAg Pilot speaker cables, 2m in length. Single wired, with spade terminations at both ends. I bought these on here perhaps a year or so back, and have been using them between an Audio Research valve power amp and a pair of Revel standmounts, with great results. However, they're too short for my new setup. Being silver, these are great cables if detail and definition are your thing. The spades could do with some metal polish if you're fussy, otherwise they're in very good condition overall. Happy to post at buyers expense.

  8. Further information: I bought these off a fellow SNA'er a few years ago and ended up using them under my ARC preamp. The pre has since been sold so these might as well go to a good home as well. These are German made and very well constructed and engineered; there are plenty of positive write-ups online. There's no model designation on these but from my research on line they appear to be the Exact MkII. Cosmetically these are in great condition, just a very small amount of wear on the upward-facing sides. Happy to post at buyers' expense, they come in a very nice wooden box which will be packaged well. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  9. Further information: I'm selling this awesome AC cable as it's too short for my re-configured setup. It was being used with my ARC power amp, which has been sold. It's one metre in length, and has an AU plug. Incredibly well made, the cable is thick and reasonably flexible. The connector and plug are very chunky and solid. Hopefully my photos show how well this cable is made. The are a couple of very small marks on the connectors (you have to look closely) and the cable itself is mint. I'm happy to post at buyers expense. Cheers and thanks for looking! Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  10. Further information: I bought these from Store DJ in Richmond about a year back, intending to use them in a computer audio setup/second system. This never really eventuated so they've sat around pretty much unused since. They're in absolutely unmarked as new condition and function perfectly. Price is firm. I have all packaging so postage is fine. I have a pair of height adjustable stands which I will include if these are collected from my place Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  11. Further information: Up for sale is my Audio Research VT100 valve power amp. I've changed my setup in recent times, including the speakers, and feel the need to look at a grunty SS integrated instead. I've only used it for a few hours since I bought it about six months ago. It works perfectly, and is cosmetically very good with no obvious marks or dings. I've found, though, that it can sound a bit bright straight after switch-on and needs about 15-20 minutes to settle in. It's set up with eight Winged-C 6550 valves for 100 w/ch. No shortage of power even with my relatively inefficient (86db) Revels. If anyone wants to try valves but don't have the speakers for anything lower-powered, this would be a great option! This amp is large and heavy, and I don't have any packaging for it, so postage is probably not an option, apart from perhaps Pack and Send. Pickup is fine, and I could be talked into delivering to Melbourne (with COD) at a mutually agreeable time. Cheers, Dave Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  12. Further information: With a heavy heart I offer my Audio Research LS5 for sale. This has been my trusty preamp for a number of years now and I've enjoyed it thoroughly. It's regarded as one of the better-sounding ARC preamps for its' era, and I can understand why. But with a few changes to my setup of late I now need to find a good SS integrated to use instead. I bought this preamp on here way back in 2011 or thereabouts. I tend to change gear a bit, but this one has gone the distance; driving a big SS Parasound and a valve ARC VT100 equally well. My memory is vague at the best of times these days, but I seem to recall the original seller had the unit modded/improved...I can't recall what was done but I've attached a pic of the internals for those in the know. The four big red caps don"t look standard, but the rest I'm not sure about. Sounds great regardless. Cosmetically, the unit is very good, with no major marks or dings. Operationally, it will occasionally emit a small pop or hiss through the speakers. Removing and reinserting the valves in their sockets fixes the issue for a while. It's never bothered me too much so I never got it looked at. One thing to bear in mind is that the unit is fully balanced, that is, all connections are XLR only. A handy thing, though, is two sets of pre-outs; I was using one set for power amp and the second set for the subwoofer. This negates the need for everything to be routed through the subwoofer amp. Pickup is welcome and I could probably deliver to Melbourne, with COD, by negotiation. I have no packaging for it so would rather not post unless Pack and Send or similar did the packing. Cheers and thanks for looking. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  13. Further information: For sale is a pair of REL T5i subs in gloss black. These are practically new and have maybe an hour on them at most. They're in as-new condition and completely unmarked; the cable packages and user manuals have not been opened. I bought these on here just a few months ago, unused at the time. The intention was to try them with my Revels, but I've decided that they don't really need much help down low, least not in my room. Although I didn't get time to dial them in properly, it was clear that these have quite amazing headroom for a small cube with an 8" driver. These will be awesome in a small-medium room with some quality standmounts. These little subs sell for $900-odd each; I've priced them for a quick sale and I think they're quite a bargain at $1200 for the pair. I have the boxes and all packaging for these so postage is fine, with postage at buyers expense. I can probably deliver (with COD) to Melbourne by negotiation. Selling as a pair only at this stage. With apologies, the photos aren't great. My phone camera is playing up and I'm using an old borrowed camera.

  14. Hi everyone and thanks for the suggestions. They’ve been sold to a member who is able to repair them. I too am glad they’re not history. Cheers Dave
  15. Item: Acoustat Z22A Hybrid Electrostatic Speakers - With Issues Location: Ballarat, Victoria Price: $150 Item Condition: Faulty - see description. Cosmetically good. Reason for selling: Taking up space Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: I don’t know if these are repairable and I’m happy to be advised re: same. If they’re completely gone, I’ll withdraw the ad. Here’s the story. I enjoyed these for a few months after buying them on here. They had the typical ESL qualities; slightly dark tonality, delicacy and detail. After a while I noticed a channel imbalance creeping in, which slowly got worse. One speaker was definitely louder than the other. I used jRiver’s balance control to correct this (not ideal but all I had). Then they began to sound rather dull. Again, this worsened over time to the point they weren’t really listenable anymore. I replaced them and they were mothballed to the spare room. They’re now just taking up space and I need them outta here. Cosmetically they’re pretty good; a few marks on the bases but the grilles and panels are fine. I have the power supplies for these. Definitely pick up only; I have no way of transporting them. Again, anyone with more knowledge than me please feel free to pipe up and advise. They’re either fixable or landfill. Cheers Dave.
