  1. Thanks for responding. GLWTS
  2. So, how many hours use before the tubes were replaced?
  3. $200...you’re kidding me. That’s giving it away. People who have never owned a Pioneer Kuro have never seen what a truly natural looking image looks like. I would only rate the current crop of OLEDs ahead of a Kuro, only because the Kuro is not 4K & is only 60” vs 65”+ for the OLEDs. I have owned my LX609, the last of the Kuros for almost 10years. It’s image is still a sight to behold & I expect it to last another 10 because these things are built like a Sherman tank. If plasmas were race horses, Kuro would be Winx & every other plasma, including LED LCDs a donkey (including some muppet calling a Panny a “Kuro killer” ROFL). So much so I managed to steal pricewise recently the last of the Kuro monitors, a KRP500 with its matching TV satellite/media receiver Box, which even betters the 609 as it comes with a colour sensor from which the monitor adjusts automatically & an array of extra adjustments & features. Even today, image wise, the Kuro would destroy the artificial, overly saturated, animated, cartoon like image of the LED backlit or edgelit TVs. For someone that has never owned a Kuro, but has $200 & a van, this is a StereoNET bargain imho.
  4. Hi Boujar, I checked with the owner of the sub and he informed me he has already sold it. Thanks for the interest just the same. Cheers
  5. Item: Anthony Gallo Acoustics TR1 Subwoofer (Black) Location: Northmead, Sydney, NSW (Local Pickup) Price: $250 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Selling on behalf of a friend. Not currently being used, just gathering dust. Cheap price. The Anthony Gallo Acoustics TR-1 is a high-output, high performance active subwoofer with a Class A/B high-current amplifier and integral bass equalizer of up to 3dB of low bass boost. The cylindrical enclosure mirrors the spherical technology of our Nucleus Series but provides larger internal air volumes and a flat rear panel for the controls. The TR-1 uses a long-throw custom 10" woofer. It differs from the TR-2 by using a lower-powered 100-watt amp (the TR-2 uses a 250-watt amp) and providing 3dB rather than max 6dB of bass boost. The rear panel provides low- and high-level inputs and outputs, continuously variable phase and low pass frequency and bass EQ from -3dB to 0 and 3dB. Frequency Response 20Hz - 180Hz Power 100 watts Class A/B Phase continuously variable Low pass 40 - 180Hz, continuously variable High pass 80Hz fixed, only on high-level output Bass EQ -3dB, 0, 3dB Power on/off rocker switch Dimensions: 10.75" W x 12" H x 13.5" D Weight 33lbs / 15kg Connections RCA i/o ports, 5-way i/o ports Cables: Power & line in.

    Great Buys On Ebay & Gumtree

    This “seller” constantly regurgitates exactly the same old eBay ads of the same old gear that doesn’t sell due to the over-inflated asking prices.

    Yep. “The Global Shipping Program” is one of the great shipping rip off cons of all time. Expect to pay over inflated shipping & import duty costs, much more than you should be paying & furthermore your parcel gets bounced around the US like a ball in a pinball machine. It involves a mob called Pitney Bowes colluding with eBay. I’ve even heard that the items to be shipped are taken out of their original boxes & re-boxed to save themselves on shipping costs so they can make a larger profit. Stay away from any item on eBay that is to be shipped using this corrupt method. Just find a piece of hifi kit on eBay that is to shipped by this program and you will notice the total shipping costs is exhorbitant to say the very least.

    Tubes vs solid state

    On the contrary... I don’t ever remember reading, “I love my SS amp, it so much better than valves”, as compared to, “After owning a tube amp, I could never go back to SS” ...or similar.

    FS Plinius SB301 Power Amplifier

    Asking price was $2.5k. Very cheap you think, but if this was a Singapore unit and if what has been stated is true (i.e. Plinius factory won't touch these units), then the price is probably about what it's worth, and not a screaming bargain as such. I.e. Audiogon has someone selling one brand new from Singapore for $4500 obo.
