    SOLD: Arcam Alpha 10p Power Amp 3 channel

  3. Re-listing with a price reduction Item: Peachtree audio iDac (Reference DAC with Remote in new conditions) Location: Brisbane Price: AUD 500 + shipping Item Condition: Nearly new Reason for selling: Recently bought a pre-amp with built DAC (ESS ES 9018 Sabre DAC) for convenient. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I was searching for Peachtree DAC ITx after trying MF V90, Schiit MODI Multibit and Arcam irDAC and found this iDac with a dealer in New Zealand. Perhaps only new piece left in the whole world. Brought new in last September and enjoyed every bit of it since then. This is a reference level DAC with ESS ES9016 Sabre³² Ultra DAC and originally sold for $1399 in Australia. It has a very smooth presentation. I used it with MF A5 CR Pre (see my other items) to connect laptop, CA DVD99, SBT streamer and Apple TV. Another feature of the iDac is 2 buttons in back panel for Hi-Bit/Lo-Bit options and Filter options NOS/NAL. NOS stands for "no filtering or oversampling," NAL for "nonaliasing." Also it has an old style iPOD doc for older generation iPods and iPhones. The DAC is still in new conditions and comes with remote, manual and power code in the original box. I did a comparison between iDac connected to pre-amp via analogue in and built-in DAC in the pre-amp and found no difference in sound quality. Local buyers are welcome to come and listen at my place in bay side area of Brisbane. Please note that iDac has inbuilt power supply so no need of an external power supply to improve SQ. If you are familiar with Sound Quality of Peachtree DAC ITx , iDAC is next level from SQ point of view and muck larger than ITx as seen in the last photo. Please not that MF A5CR in the photo is for sale in a separate listing.

  5. Musical Fidelity A5CR Pre-amp + XA200 Monoblocks Location: Brisbane Price: AUD 1900 + shipping for Pre + 2 Power amps Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank transfer Reason for selling: Recently bought a pre-amp with built-in DAC for convenient. As Power Amps with 200w RMS @ 8 ohms each are over killers for my mediums size room as well speaker; downgraded to a small power amp. Musical Fidelity A5CR Pre-amp with Remote Item Condition: Used with minor scratches (See photo). No original Volume knob. Extra Info: Has a Phono Stage (MM and MC) , HT By-pass and a Tape Loop This pre works well with no issues at all. Bought 4 years ago and the previous owner had lost Volume knob. I managed to find an Aluminium volume knob but as you can see from photos it is bit smaller. Never bothers me as it does not affect the sound. Out of 4 years it was in storage for just under 3 years as I was working overseas. Used for 6 months until recently without any issues at all. Presence few scratches in front facia and visible with a close look only. Top is fine and the bottom plate has few spots with paint peeled off. No rusting as the bottom plate seems to be Aluminium. Comes with a functioning remote and power code. Manual: https://www.musicalfidelity.com/uploads/manuals/English/a5crpreamp_eng.pdf Musical Fidelity XA200 monoblock power amps (2 Nos) Bought 4 years ago and used to drive Quad 21L speakers. Never had any issue. In perfect conditions. These are hard to find serious power amps by Musical Fidelity each producing whopping 200W RMS @ 8 Ohms, therefore will drive any sort of hard to drive speakers with ease. Out of 4 years they were in storage for just under 3 years as I was working overseas. Used for 6 months until recently without any issues at all. Happy to demonstrate to local buyers an agreed time as they need to be set-up to listen. I do not have original boxes, however happy to send through Pack and Send.

  7. I have a pair of MF XA200 mono blocks and am thinking of selling that too as 2× 200W power amp with 75a peak current is an over killer for my system and medium size room.

(Manufactured in Aug 2013) Working well with no issues. Sound wise more dynamic than Schiit in my system. Price: AUD 225 including shipping within Australia.

  12. Item: Arcam irDAC - ii Location: Brisbane Item Condition: Brand new conditions – Used for a week only Bought from an authorised dealer in Europe a couple of weeks ago with 2 years international warranty. Used for a week and decided to go for a Streamer DAC. Comes with all accessories came with it such as remote, cables, power supply. Due to some reason the Australian adapter plug does not power up the unit(probably a connection issue) and I used the UK plug provided with the unit with an adapter bought from Coles for $10 and it works well. Please note that no issue with the power supply. If you are fuzzy with it I am sure a new plug could be obtained from a dealer under warranty. Invoice I got from the authorised seller will be provided with the DAC as I have not registered the DAC the successful buyer will be able to register it directly to avail 2 years international warranty. (I have experience with Arcam warranty well and I had an AVR300 bought from overseas and repaired in Australia under warranty without any issue) Please note this is the latest Arcam DAC with Headphone Amp, Variable line out, Bluetooth and Remote Controller, sold in Australia over AUD1000. Price: AUD 575, includes 25 donation to SNA + Postage Payment Method: Bank deposit, Cash on collection for local buyers, Paypal but buyer to bare the fees. Reason for selling: Funding for a Streamer DAC (May exchange for a good quality Streamer like CA CXN) Pictures:
