  1. Item: Bohlender Graebener RD75 ribbon speaker driver pair Location: Templestowe 3106 Price: $1620 Item Condition: Good working order, fully tested Reason for selling: Estate sale Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: May be used full range from 200Hz to 20KHz with just a simple sub to fill in the bass. These are the ultimate speaker for detail and directionality. These normally bring A$3,000+ on the international market but I need to keep this fast and simple for the family of my deceased audiophile friend. Price $1620 is not negotiable - if you don't think they are an incredible bargain at this price then you don't really want them! I am not taking a commission on this ($1,600 is for the family and $20 is for Austereonet) so you need to keep this easy for me also - buyer to collect or arrange their own collection and wrapping. (I can drop to the nearest pack and send store in Blackburn though if that helps.) I did a full test last night using a borrowed Audiomatica CLIO system and can confirm both are working perfectly and are a good matched pair. (NB Pic is from the web but identical to the pair I am offering) Some info, including specs, here: https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/swap-meet/306011-sale-pair-nos-bohlender-graebener-ribbon-transducers-rd-50-rd-75-a.html Pictures:

  4. Item: DEQX active crossover/equalizer system Location: Templestowe Victoria Price: $1,600 Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: Nolonger need it Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have three of these, one is promised already so two remain. They have just one years use from new. I have just the main units, no remotes or accessories. I do have the software and can configure them for 2 or 3 way, crossover points and slopes as requested prior to sale if someone wants it ready to go. These are still the best audio crossovers/processors you can buy. Specs and info here: http://www.deqx.com/products/legacy/pdc-2-6p-hd/ Pictures:
  5. What I would use to demo (ie show off) my system to others is different to what I would myself for test and setup purposes. Hugh Masekela is good for converting the non-believers to vinyl ? However I have found the Thorens 125th Anniversary LP set (double album) has a broad range of music to suit both purposes.
  6. The only issue with driving the ESL57s apart from their low sensitivity is that they can be damaged with too high an input voltage and have an impedance that starts around 15 ohms at low frequency (when most the demand for power happens) and falls to 2 ohms at the top end. My pick of what you have would certainly be the NAD. It is just about right in power output and should easily handle the load range. (Best of all would be some Levinson ML-2s which are almost current unlimited but voltage limited to what the quads can safely handle....but good luck finding a pair of those!)
  7. Item: Various Focal/JM Lab drivers Location: Templestowe Victoria Price: $160 Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: Used for testing only Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are part of a large collection of drivers I bought for testing. They have been boxed up and used for 10 to 20 hours only. Items available: (A) 8K5412 - 8" mid/woofers (spec similar to 8K516J) 2 pair available @ $175/pair or $300 for all four. (B) 5K4211 - 5" mid/bass drivers. 4 pair available @ $160/pair or $280 for four. (C) TC120TD5 20mm tweeters. 12X12cm mounting plate. 3 pair available @ $240/pair. Also one pair with the dome protectors removed (to see if it changed the dispersion, it didn't!) $180. Pictures:
  8. PS I have a pair of 15" Golds complete with crossovers (but no plastic magnet covers as they came from another horn loaded box) that whomever collects these boxes can have for $3K the pair which is under normal market value. If they don't go with these boxes then I will offer them to other stereonet members after that.
  9. Item: Pair of Tannoy reproduction Autograph boxes, believed made in HK in 1950s Location: Templestowe Price: $0 Item Condition: One box partly dismantled. New grill cloth required. Reason for selling: Wife says they must go NOW! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These came from HK. Loaded with 15" silvers and look to have been made in 1950s. Have plaque from original store on them. Properly made with plywood and look just like the original from outside - and I would know as I owned what is possibly Australia's only pair of genuine Autographs before obtaining these. NOTE- they look like originals from outside but are a bit heavier - made with thicker plywood AND internal panels have been NAILED not screwed. Hence one box had to be partially dismantled to remove the driver. But all parts are there to re-assemble. FREE but ONLY if you can collect within 48 hours. And I mean it - don't promise you can do so then let me down and take away another enthusiast's chance to have these and save a LOT of work compared to building from scratch. (Especially the furniture quality finished side fluting and drill surround!) So it will be first in best dressed here. If they are still here in 48 hours you can join me for a beer around the bonfire! :-) John 0418 313181 Pictures:
  10. It is on hold now. I will confirm when sold.
  11. Item: Curved light coloured plywood glass front cabinet from late 50s/early 60s. Location: Templestowe Vic 3106 Price: $300 Item Condition: Good, average. minor marks, no damage. Reason for selling: Preparing to downsize. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this 8 years ago to use with a Thorens TD124-II in the curved plywood Ortofon plinth and with a pair of Thorens PR15 amplifiers for the ultimate Retro style system. But I never found room in my home for the setup and feel it is time to move it onto someone else who appreciates this clean, retro design. Offered well below typical auction room prices for similar pieces - I just need it gone. Ideal size for a two component system with room for record storage inside. Pictures:
  12. Item: Pair 300Hz GOTO horns Location: Melbourne Price: $700 Item Condition: VG but have typical ugly Goto damping material on the back side. (Not seen when in baffles) Reason for selling: Too many projects Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Fitting is larger than normal GOTO SG type. Not sure if this is original or modified. They are exactly as I imported them from Japan. Give-a-way price......My shipping cost from Japan was nearly $500 alone! Note that the fitting is too large for the pair of SG555 Gotos I also have on offer. An adapter could be easily made if you wanted to use them together. Pictures:
  13. Item: GOTO SG555 drivers Location: Melbourne Price: $1200 Item Condition: VG, impedance mismatch Reason for selling: too many projects Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Pair of SG555 mid horn drivers - perfect working order. Identical EXCEPT one is 8ohm and one is 15ohm so you will have to make an adjustment when building your crossover. (Easily done as these have sensitivity to spare compared to any woofer you are likely to use.) One has no label. Tested and both work fine. Very heavy and superbly made. Price firm as this is way less than I paid to import them. (See my other listings for some GOTO 200Hz horns) Pictures:
  14. Item: SQ88 signature integrated tube amplifier. Location: Templestowe Victoria Price: $4,250 Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: Downsizing Payment Method: Pickup or ship if you are near a capital city - Cash or EFT. Paypal OK if you add 3% 25Kg so must go via courier, cannot be posted. FREE shipping included in price. Extra Info: Approx 2003 model. Rare in Australia. 50wpc. Williamson design. Uses easy to source KT88 output tubes. Output tubes replaced approx 100 hours ago. 230VAC international version. Wonderful tube sound with the reliability of a modern amp. VERY quiet - can easily be used with horn speakers. (I have used it with Autographs and Klipschorns - try that with any other 50w tube amps!)
