  3. Item: Luxman R-1050 Receiver Fully Restored Location: Richmond, Victoria Price: $1100 ONO Item Condition: Used, Restored Reason for selling: Moving house Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this Luxman from a fellow forum member about 18 months ago in working condition. When I received it, it was sent off to my technician for a full service. It has sat in my study providing background music with a set of IMF Super Compacts since then. The unit is in fantastic condition with one mark on the front fascia above the high and low cut buttons and a scratch on one side and another small one on the top, aside from these minor indicators of age, everything is functional and clean as a whistle. This is an absolutely beautiful unit with warm, articulate Luxman sound and it sounds great on modern speakers or older vintage such as my Tannoy Berkeley. Features include two phono inputs, two tape inputs, and an AUX input. The tuner sounds amazing and works perfectly. The phono stage performed on par with my Graham Slee Accession. The service performed included replacement of all capacitors in the unit (except the tuner board - caps tested fine) including the main filter caps, Elna caps were used in most positions with Elna Gold in the phono stage, replacement of some transistors which are known to go noisy, some transistor mounts (with new thermal paste added) and replacement of all incandescent bulbs with LED. The unit is supplied with a bag of the original parts removed during service (as shown in the photos) and some spade to banana plug connectors I made for connecting to modern cables. Regretful sale, we have just purchased a new apartment and there is no room for an office hifi system and after some consideration I have decided not to put this into storage. Audition available and pickup from Richmond. This is a very large and heavy unit, I am happy to discuss sending interstate with Pack and Send at your expense. Photos:
  4. Item: Denon POA-800 Power Amplifier Location: Richmond, Victoria Price: $200 Item Condition: Great - as per pictures Reason for selling: Moving house - no room. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Denon POA-800 power amplifier - great unit with heaps of power. This unit for me into pre/power combinations. The unit works perfectly, loud clear and punchy sound from Denon’s Precision series - late 80's I believe. This unit is rated at 2x50w and it has gain controls for each channel so can be connected directly to a source without the need for a preamp. Condition as per photos with a few scratches on the sides and top from handling. Front fascia in fantastic condition. Pickup from Richmond in Melbourne. Photos:
  5. I use a mk6 and love it. Best of luck with your sale buddy - someone will be very happy with this in their system.
  6. These are on hold pending pickup this weekend.
  7. Item: IMF Super Compact Monitors Location: Richmond, Victoria Price: $300 Item Condition: As per pictures. Reason for selling: Not Required (No Room) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Hey everyone, up for sale are my IMF Super Compact monitors. These are an amazing speaker for their size and put out a powerful bass and beautiful midrange and highs with that signature IMF sound. These are mk1 cabinets however have had the tweeters and mid range drivers updated to the Mk2 versions. The crossovers have been recapped with new caps from Falcon Acoustics. Included in the sale is also a pair of Mk1 midranges as spares (One has a frozen driver but could be salvaged if required). I purchased these from another forum member a year or so ago, they have been doing an amazing service in my study system. Due to moving house and lack of a dedicated study in the new place, these need to go. Condition is as per photos. Happy to demo to interested buyers. Pickup only from Richmond in Melbourne VIC. Thanks for looking, Drew Photos:

  9. Item: Graham Slee Accession MM Phono Preamp (Black) Location: Richmond, Victoria Price: $950 RRP $1590 Item Condition: Perfect (2 years old) Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Up for sale is my Graham Slee Accession MM phono stage with PSU1 Power supply. The unit is two years old and was purchased from Keith at Wyndham Audio. These units retail for $1590 Functionally and cosmetically the unit is absolutely perfect with not a mark to be seen. This is a fantastic MM phono stage, I purchased it after comparing a number of units on the market including the Reflex M and used it with my Rega RP8 and Ortofon 2M Black with amazing results. This unit has fixed and variable level outputs, a number of EQ options and flexibility of capacitance selection including 0, 100, 220 and 330uf options to get the best out of your MM cartridge and records. I am selling this due to purchasing a preamp with valve phono stage and I have decided to let this one go. You can read Michael Fremers' review of the GSP Accession here; https://www.analogplanet.com/content/graham-slees-1449-accession-raises-mm-playback-bar This sale includes the original boxes, cables and manuals. Pickup from Richmond, Victoria and happy to audition, I can ship at buyers cost. Photos:
  10. Thanks for the links I had read a few. Be keen to hear from people who have had experience with this cart 😊
  11. Hi team, I am wondering if anyone has had experience with the Audio Note IQ3 cartridge.? Am considering and researching an upgrade from my Ortofon 2M Black and want to stay in the MM stable or HOMC as my Mcintosh C2200 is MM only and I dont want to introduce extra components (extra phono or SUT) at this stage. When cruising the Interwebs I found some very positive chatter about this cart (https://www.audionote.co.uk/iq3) and a review which was very positive where the reviewer preferred it to the 2MB. So I thought worth asking our great stereonet community if anyone has heard/owned one and what were their impressions? Rest of setup is a RB330 on a Michell Gyrodec. All info welcome! Drew
  12. Awesome speakers, I really like IMF’s and have personally purchased another pair from Sansui77 in the past and am very happy with them.
  13. I’m really enjoying this thread and hats off to davidsun for getting straight into it 👌
  14. I know the seller and this particular pair of speakers and am very happy to recommend 👍 if I had more room I’d be snapping these up drew
  15. Im with the OP, I was in JB the other day as well and noticed prices have gone up quite a lot in the last 12-18 months. I haven't been buying many new records in AUS recently to have noticed the prices going up... Has this been steadily happening? Perhaps it's just because it's Christmas time?
