  1. Does the date code mean this is from around 2010?
  2. Interesting - I bought an amp made by these people having never heard of them and then this appears. 😎
  3. There's one up now if you're still looking. 😎
  4. Any idea how old this one is? They've made them since 2010. Looks nicely made though so perhaps that's why the model has had an unusually long life.
  5. I'll have a go if it's up for grabs. 😎 PM Sent with intent to donate.
  6. Marquis use Vifa bass drivers but you can get them to snap much more readily than, say, the Crown Princes and that makes the choice for amplification much less critical. Many decent 10-15kg ~100watters would be plenty for most people. An ME550 sounds great. Mids are beautiful. I owned Crown Princes for some years but in hindsight probably should have bought Marquis as I couldn't have afforded capable amplification at that time for the CPs and I never got to listen to them on song. A good friend has CPs now - and sure, they sound fantastic - but he's also got a nice baby FPB series Krell to drive them.
  7. It seems to me that what they are saying is that the meter for sale has not emitted smoke and that the second person to comment was speaking about their own experiences with a similar tester. Would that be correct @palexsia?
  8. Further information: Nice custom horn made by owner who is a cabinet maker. Only a single though. I've listed it as a favor and to provide contact details if anyone should need them for a project (ask via PM and I'll send them along). Could be used for mono or as a template to make more horns out of papier-mache or fiber glass etc. He also made the last custom conical straight set that were listed here and inquiries are welcome if you have any grand designs - though they'll be more expensive than the horn listed here since this was for a personal project he didn't pursue. Pick up in St Peters and pick up is preferred.

  9. A superb match for speakers of reasonably high efficiency - and unusually good measurements for a First Watt design (despite them all sounding better than their measurements might suggest given the proper circumstances) - be aware that this one prefers high impedances though for delivering its maximum power. 30watts into 8ohms and 15watts into 4. If you've got esoteric horns or Zus or are coming from SET designs I guess you could care less! 😎 Made with the rare SemiSouth j-fets which are similar in characteristics to Sony and Yamaha's famed v-fets - and unlike Sony and Yamaha, Nelson will have parts for yours if it should ever suffer a calamity from lightning, earthquake or your significant other not taking sufficient care with her champagne.
  10. I don't think this is a Pass clone. They mention "Manhattan circuit" in their description and I can't see the link to Pass Labs there. As with many DIY class A designs it seems to be a MOSFET-based amplifier though. The revised iteration of this A80 is called an A88 and the schematic for that one is available online. I'd be interested to know how many watts it draws from the wall at idle to determine how much class A bias the designer decided to run in that chassis and what kind of temperature it idles at, as this is a matter for personal choice as well as technical considerations, to a degree. Do you have a link to any more information @360Cisitalia ? I'm keen to apply some google translating to the documentation and learn a little more about it. 😎
  11. It's a bit of a swim from Adelaide. Would you consider posting it? I'm keen if postage is available.
  12. Beautiful speakers - and to my mind outperform all the Maggies I've heard. GLWTS.
  13. The rear photo looks lifted from a European site so I wouldn't put too much store in things you see there. Best the seller answers I guess.
  14. Yeah, count me in as a backup-backup please. 😎 I used to like mine.
