  1. Item: Technics RS 1500 series or 777 reel to reel player Price Range: Lets discuss Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking for a Technics 1500 or 777 reel to reel in any condition, working or not as it will be either a simple addition or a project recondition/restoration with upgrade modifications already in mind. Complete or in parts is ok - i have the parts i want in mind. I'm not fussed if it doesn't have sound but preference is complete mechanical and electronics so i can work on it. If it is in perfect;y good working order and condition - i'm interested too obviously.
  2. Thanks Betty Boop for the extra info. - you could have had a great collection going and also look at getting a pair of X200's! Yes any pre amp is fine and a great chance to put a nice valve pre on them too. Sale pending at the moment.
  3. Further information: Price:$1150 is for both and i'm happy to sell seperatley Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling:I no longer have a need for them and also have been offered a DAC i'm interested in. Payment Method: Cash , Paypal Extra Info: I am the original owner, made in England, all boxes and instructions included. Xas100 is 100w per channel in stereo or 200w in mono bridged. Has it's own separate mono power supply. xA50 is 50w and a all in one single unit. I had them in a home theatre setup hence the XA50 was the centre channel amp. I barely have used these and they are very well run in. these amps are what musical fidelity was really renowned for before they started using china. check out the reviews online. Photos:
  4. I listen to all sorts of music that cross many of the genres mentioned above on different speakers. Yes, valve amps work with all types of music and putting aside vocals or instruments, I’ve noticed that there are some fantastic tracks out there with great detail and amazing electronic effects. It comes down to what you like and whether your satisfied with the results.
  5. Ok Guys, Any offers out there? If not, i will soon close out and make other plans for the player. Cheers.
  6. Would you like some more 😉 I really do like their gear and if i had a large space i would have kept it all. After owning it for nearly 20 years its sad to see it go.
  7. I have been playing a few CD,s on this at the moment with some very special (compact size) amplifiers I’m trying out on some amazing speakers - it’s a great sounding player with very different styling/functionality to other CD players and I can’t believe no one is seriously interested at this price. This is a quality hi end machine with a non hi end price tag.
  8. Item: Copland CTA504 tube power amp Condition is Used and in original condition Location: Melbourne Price: $1250 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: I have downsized Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Made in Denmark and is absolutely superb, wonderful sound and a quality build, the power amp is switchable to run in triode (25w) or pentode (50w) And has a wide frequency range.

The damage was only to the inside of the switch as it is plastic and the switch has been bypassed I turn it on at the power board an according to some people this directly soldered connection is better sounding.

Location: Melbourne Price: $600 Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: I now use hard drive Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Made in Denmark and is absolutely superb, wonderful sound and a quality build. I have owned this equipment for the last 17 years In a matching series set all designed and built to work together or seperatley. Very musical and rave reviews.

Description : The Copland CDA 266 with its austere, yet elegant, Swedish styling, is one of the most aesthetically pleasing CD players . In terms of performance wise, it's no slouch. The Copland CDA 266 presented a soundstage full of dimension at all gradations of volume. Even during the most intense orchestral eruptions, the CDA 266 refused to reduce the soundstage to two-dimensions. The depth and breadth was well communicated and presented well behind the plane of the loudspeakers. On well-engineered orchestral discs, soundstage transparency was exemplary, with the most distant reaches of the stage being well delineated. The CDA 266's ability to present a precisely focused image of the soundstage, with instruments and performers occupying well-defined spatial positions was good. Using an artistic metaphor, images rendered by that cd player were more akin to those of the impressionistic than realist periods. The Copland CDA 266's upper octaves were full of air, sparkle and life. The percussive sounds of cymbals, tambourines, and triangles, as heard on a diversity of discs were rendered with a considerable measure of the clarity and speed of their live counterparts. Counter-balancing the cd player's extended top-end was a full, taut bottom, with enough power and impact to bring life to the bass drum strokes and the requisite articulation to dissect the unison double bass lines. The CDA 266's low-octave performance did, in fact, prove the equal of the considerably more expensive cd players impressively. Midrange articulation was another hallmark of the CDA 266's performance. Although singing as a group, the large choral forces could be heard to consist of singular voices, each one readily discernible within the vocal mélange. Perhaps owing to its transient speed and extended upper octaves, the CDA 266 was one of the more energetic and lively players. It is on the whole, a very musically satisfying device and just may be the thing to while away the time in peace and harmony.
