  1. Thanks to those who PM me. These went fast! Pending sale - Awaiting pickup. :)
  2. Item: 1 x pair Triangle Zays ; 1 x pair Audio Physic Spark ; 1 x pair Quad ESL 57 Location: Sydney (East) Price: $1000 (all three- awesome July bargain) Item Condition: Triangle Zays - 8/10; Audio Physics 8/10; Quad ESl 57 ( 6/10) Reason for selling: Too many speakers; moving out; time to sell Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Here is one lucky catch of a sale for an audiophile. Up for sale today are 3 speakers. 1. Triangle Zays 222 (plus grilles) 2. Audio Physic Spark (plus grilles) 3. Quad ESL 57's I am trying to clear out all these speakers in one quick fire sale and will sell them all to the first lucky buyer. Priced to sell and preferably in the next few weeks as I have some time off work. The Zays are outstanding and their condition is like new. The audio physics are also like new and work great. The Quad 57's are rated very highly (serial numbers 12626 and 13666 - 1964 and 1965 vintage pair) and worked ok at low volumes last time I played them. Looking to sell these as one bundle and not separate. Please bring your van and I will help with the loading. I have boxes for the Zays, not for the Audio Physic or Quads. Thanks for looking.

  4. What taps are available on these please? Are the 300B's auto or manual biased? Sent from my HTC_0PFJ50 using Tapatalk
  5. Compliance (high or medium) and output (stereo or mono) on cart please? Thanks Sent from my HTC_0PFJ50 using Tapatalk
  6. Are the GE 6550A's welded or stapled plates? Sorry - I cannot tell from the photo. Sent from my HTC_0PFJ50 using Tapatalk
  7. You are correct. The C version has AUX where the A2 has LOAD.Have you ever tried using the tape out to bypass the line stage to use the unit as a stand alone phono stage? Sent from my HTC_0PFJ50 using Tapatalk
  8. +1 to Sir Triode's comments above. The big bonus with the phono stage in this preamp is that it also has dedicated RCA jacks to load up any cart to its correct output impedance value. The gain on this unit is very high when feeding in a line level signal from a CD/DAC source. Feedback resistors in line stage section can be changed to adjust for gain if used for this application. Scott Frankland is very helpful if you require any mods. He sent me a brand new 240v power transformer to convert my USA unit to AU operation. I have the A2 version as well. GLWTS.

  9. The Cary Audio website lists 60 dB for the MC circuit. Sent from my HTC_0PFJ50 using Tapatalk
  10. This preamp responds very well to tube rolling - it particularly likes E188CC/7308 tubes from the 1960's. Has adjustable regulated heater supply to all 6 babies. GLWTS.
  11. Have heard this CJ 350SA power amp partnered with the Herron VTSP2 preamp - combo has plenty of grunt to drive low dB full range floor-standers. I hope you don't regret selling this one off. GLWTS.
  12. Could you please confirm the authenticity of this Oyaide product? Thanks
  13. I have the exact same set of speakers in the same condition and colour as yours. Just confirming that these are revision 2 speakers made from 1976 to 1977. The radiator is shaped more like a hexagon shaped driver (sharp corners) rather than the oval shaped driver (rounded corners) found on the revision 1 speakers. The sensitivity on them is 90.7 dB at 8 ohm for 1 watt (2.83 volts) per 1 metre. They work great with low powered valve amps and need 14 watts or more power to sing their best at 102 dB using the Paul Joppa rule for SET amps. GLWTS.
