  1. I have available for loan my Behringer ECM8000 measuring mic, a mic stand and a Tascam US144 phantom power/mixer unit. USB cable and mic cable are also supplied. This could be of interest to anyone who wants to investigate REW and perhaps EQ their system or who wants to integrate a subwoofer or two. No time limit on how long you have the gear in your posession but I do ask that if more than one SNA'er is keen that it is passed on the next person in a reasonable time frame. I can perhaps deliver to Melbourne over the next few days if anyone is interested. Postage will be awkward because of the mic stand. Anyway, if anyone's interested let me know. Cheers, Dave.
  2. Great pics Mark! Truly a sublime sounding system. I still can't get over the size of that phono stage!
  3. Item: 4 x CD's, Audiophile Titles Location: Balllarat, Victoria Price: $50 plus postage Item Condition: VG+ to EX Reason for selling: Selling stuff to buy more stuff Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD, Bank Transfer Extra Info: If you want to hear what your system is capable of these are the CD's to do it! The Fim's are sensationally recorded, while the XLO Test/Reference CD contains a burn-in track (not going there!) plus various other tracks to help optimise speaker positioning, amongst other things. A mixed bag musically but a bit of an audiophile treat sound-quality wise. CD listing as follows: James Newton Howard and Friends - Fim XRCD Jazz at the Pawnshop - Fim XRCD Pepe Romero - Flamenco - Fim K2HD XLO Test and Burn-In CD - HDCD Pictures:
  4. Hi Ray, Looks like they're gone mate. I'll let you know if anything falls through. Cheers, Dave

  6. Item: 7 x Mobile Fidelity Ultradisc II CD's and 1 X Hybrid SACD Location: Ballarat, Victoria Price: $140 for the set Item Condition: VG to EX Reason for selling: Funding other stuff Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD, Bank Transfer Extra Info: The remainder of my MFSL collection after yesterday's sale. All CD's are VG+, as are inserts, some plastic covers have seen better days though. A couple of these are quite rare now! This is what this collection consists of: Santana - Abraxas The All-time Greatest Hits of Roy Orbison Pixies - Bossanova (Hybrid SACD) Elton John - Goodbye Yellow Brick Road Joe Jackson - Night and Day The Velvet Underground and Nico Gershwin - An American in Paris Sting - The Dream of the Blue Turtles I'm not at all keen on separating this lot to be truthful so it's being sold as a job lot.

  8. Item: Apple TV Second Generation Location: Ballarat, Victoria Price: $50 plus postage if required Item Condition: Very good - unboxed but with remote and AC cord Reason for selling: Selling stuff so I can buy other stuff Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD, Bank Transfer Extra Info: Selling my Apple TV as I'm no longer using it. These days I'm finding myself listening to music far more than watching movies and TV. Proceeds will go towards setting up a second system. Postage is fine should be about a tenner I expect. Pictures:
  9. Item: Pair of RCA 5692 Red Base Valves Location: Ballarat, Victoria Price: $80 the pair not including postage Item Condition: Very good - unsure of hours but functioning and sounding great Reason for selling: My valve pre doesn't use 6SN7's Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD, Bank Transfer Extra Info: The holy grail of the 6SN7 variety, I have had this pair of 5692's for a good few years and have barely used them. I bought them as a pair off ebay, I think. I recall using them briefly in my Weston pre with excellent results and then Grizzly had them for some time and reported the same improvement in his Weston compared to the standard Tung-Sols. I'm unsure how many hours are on these but they're said to be good for 10,000 hours anyway. Pick up in Ballarat or postage at cost, will probably be a tenner or so. Pictures:

  11. Hi Toyboyo, the EQ facilities in JRiver are sent to the DAC. That's how I use it. Cheers, Dave
  12. Should give you a bit of an idea. Good work.
  13. I'm glad I satisfied my JBL cravings with a nice pair of L100 Centuries. Kick-ass speakers that are now hard to find in decent nick.
