  1. 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.
  2. Item: Musical Fidelity A5CR Pre-amp with Remote Location: Brisbane Price: AUD 850 + shipping Item Condition: With minor scratches (See photo). No original Volume knob. Reason for selling: Recently bought a pre-amp with built-in DAC for convenient. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank transfer 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. Has been running my system for last 6 months with out 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. Happy to box carefully and post interstate. Manual: https://www.musicalfidelity.com/uploads/manuals/English/a5crpreamp_eng.pdf
  3. Item: Peachtree Audio iDac Location: Brisbane Price: AUD 600 + shipping Item Condition: Nearly new (Used for 3 months) Reason for selling: Recently bought a pre-amp with built-in DAC (ESS ES 9018 Sabre DAC) for convenient. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank transfer. Extra Info: I was searching for Peachtree DAC ITx after trying MF V90, Schiit MODI Multibit & Arcam irDAC and found this iDac with a dealer in New Zealand. Perhaps only new piece left in the whole world. Brought new 3 months ago 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 (selling soon) 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: found no difference in sound quality. Local buyers are welcome to come and listen at my place in bay side area of Brisbane. Note: iDac has a built-in linear power supply so no need of an external power supply to improve SQ.

  5. MF V90 DAC and Schiit Audio MODI Multibit DAC Location: Brisbane Musical Fidelity V90 DAC: SOLD Cosmetically 8/10. Few scratches on the back panel(See photos attached). Second owner. (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.

  6. 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:
