  1. Item: Tung Sol 6550 (Russian remake) - Matched Set Location: Blackburn South, 3130 Item Condition: Excellent, Reason for selling: No longer needed, sold tube amp Price: $120 + postage...sale pending Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, PayPal, DD Extra Info: Bought as a matched set (IP:47 and Gm: 6,300) from Amp Tubes. Used it to test on a Conrad Johnson LP66s, but have since sold the amp. These would have been used for less then 10 hours as I was I was trying to figure out a noise (which in the end was the pre amp tubes). Pick up from Blackburn South 3130 or post at buyers expense.
  2. SNA classifieds and its members is the best dealer! Add me to the CJ and Benz Micro fan club. CJ ET3SE and Benz Micro Wood SL.
  3. Worked great with the Benz Wood SL. I tested it with the Lehmann Black Cube phono. And the Choir killed the native MC section. Brought that combo towards my RCM performance. Excellent SUT.
  4. Item: Lehmann Black Cube Statement MM/MC Phono Stage Location: VIC 3130 Price: $280.00 + Shipping Item Condition: Used but in excellent condition Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit Extra Info: Up for sale is a Lehmann Black Cube Statement MM/MC Phono Stage. This is a fantastic phono stage. Great features, good build quality, compact and excellent sound. Well reviewed online and still holds a place in the Stereophile Recommended Components for 2017. https://www.stereophile.com/content/recommended-components-2017-edition-turntables-tonearms-cartridges-etc The Black Cube Statement comes with the original box, jumpers (for gain), power supply and manual. There is quite a lot of positive reviews for this Phono. And I think its an excellent phono for its price points. It's flexible enough for a veriety of cartridges (I was using it with a Benz Micro Wood SL). It contains a number of switches allowing for modification of impedance and gain. Gain at 1kHz: 31dB, 41dB, 51dB, 61dB selectable Signal to noise ratio: 80db - 60dB depending on selected gain Input capacitance: 100pF Input impedances: 47 kOhm, 1k Ohm, 100 Ohm switchable underneath the unit, 1 slot for a custom load Output impedance: <100 Ohm RIAA filter: passive equalization between two linear gain stages Soft Bass Rolloff: 6dB/oct. @60Hz jumper activated Inter-channel mismatch: typ. 0,5dB Power consumption: 3W with external AC power adaptor Dimensions: audio section 103 x 108 x 45mm Pictures:
  5. Just hooked mine up this morning. Fresh out of the box it’s very good already. I’m driving it from my Conrad Johnson ET3SE pre amp. If the X14A continue this path, I’ll have to seriously consider the 200XD in a few years when the kids are more grown and I can get back to HiFi.
  6. No many posts on SNA on the X14A. How did you go law18 with finding a preamp for this active speaker? I'm downsizing as well (due to time constraints) and have ordered a pair of X14A that I'll pick up this weekend.
  7. I think these ones use 3 strands of wire. 20awg and 24awg copper and one 28awg silver wire. The original R1 used ETI plugs. Then the 2nd gen (these ones on sale) moved to the KLEI plugs. I think the ones on the Aurealis site are now all revised again.
  8. Item: ZU Audio DL 103 Mk2 Grade 2 MC Cartridge Location: Blackburn South (AH), South Wharf (BH) VIC Price: Sale Pending ...$450 + Shipping Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Sold 2nd tonearm, so no longer needed. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I love this cart. There's something magical about Denon 103 carts, and the Zu version is the best I've heard in my system. I've had a normal 103, 103R, Soundsmith retipped 103 in a wood body and this ZU DL 103. The Zu seems more alive resolving then the rest, but still retaining the romantic charms of the 103 sound. I bought this cart from Magenta audio and it has had conservatively no more then 50 hours on it. It was meant for a 2nd arm I wanted for my turntable, but I've not abandoned that idea due to lack of time. This Zu DL103 is the current Mk2 version as well as being a grade 2 version, which is one down from the prime. The grading is due to channel balance. Comes with all boxes and paperwork from Denon and Zu. Pick up preferred. http://www.zuaudio.com/phono-cartridges/standard Pictures:
  9. Item: Aurealis R1 Interconnect (KLEI plugs) 1m x 2 Location: Blackburn South (AH), South Wharf (BH) VIC Price: $100 each + shipping Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Moved to Aurealis R2 Ag Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale is 2 pairs of Aurealis R1 Interconnect with KLEI RCA bullet plugs, and at 1m in length. These are in excellent condition with bag and boxes for each pair. I've since moved to the R2 Ag as that seems to work better with my current components. These are the 2nd generation R1 I believe, with the newer KLEI plugs. Pick up preferred, but can ship at buyers expense. Pictures:
  10. Unfortunately, I can't follow Crowded House's advice right now. Maybe in a few years time. Sold to a real SNA gentleman, hope you enjoy it sir!
  11. Item: Design Build Listen The Wand 9"+ tonearmLocation: Blackburn South (AH) or South Wharf (BH), VIC Price: $550 + Shipping Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Was dreaming of having 2 arms on my turntable, but other priorities now mean not having the time to use the turntable let alone 2 arms. Payment Method: Direct deposit, Paypal, Pickup - Cash Extra Info: The Wand tonearm by Design Build Listen is a unipivot, 9" carbon fibre tonearm made in NZ. There are many positive feedback and reviews for this arm, a lot of which can be found on the net. I was initially wanting to add 2 arms on my Acoustic Signature turntable so I can enjoy the 2 carts (out of the many I've tried) I loved the most, but having a young family means I hardly listen to records at the moment, let alone having the luxury of 2 arms and carts. The arm is in very good condition with all parts. Pictures:
  12. Item: Quad 909 Power Amplifier Location: Blackburn South, VIC (AH) or South Wharf, VIC (BH) Price: $750 + Shipping Item Condition: Excellent apart from a few blemishes on the top of the case Reason for selling: Trying something different Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The Quad 909 is a very nice power amp. Plenty of juice to make my 805 speakers sing, in a compact unit. Selling as I'm trying the tube amp path. This 909 has a green LED. From what I've read online, the green LED maybe an indicator that this unit was still made in England. Although, there is no markings on the unit or the packaging to indicate where this was manufactured. Comes with full packaging and manual. Shipping cost would be around the $50 mark as its a heavy unit. Pictures:
  13. Item: Exposure 2010s Power Amplifier Location: Blackburn South, VIC (AH) and South Wharf, VIC (BH) Price: $300, local pickup only Item Condition: Very good condition Reason for selling: Trying something different Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This Exposure is power amp only. So if you have an Exposure integrated 2010s, this would be a very nice addition for bi-amping. Or run as a power amp with a pre. I bought this from HiFi Exchange a couple of years ago and was very happy with it for a long time. Driving a pair of KEF LS50. Below is a review on this amp. http://www.avhub.com.au/product-reviews/hi-fi/exposure-2010s-power-amplifier-392634 I do not have a box for this amp, so it is local pickup only. Pictures:
  14. Item: Fostex TH-00 Purple Heart Headphones Location: Blackburn South, VIC (AH) or South Wharf, VIC (BH) Price: $550 + shipping Item Condition: Excellent, no blemishes on the headphones Reason for selling: Not enough use to justify keeping Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale is an excellent sounding Fostex TH-00 Purple Heart closed back headphones. There are a lot of information for the Fostex TH-00 by MassDrop online. These are the limited edition with the Purple Heart wood cups instead of the stock Mahogany. I believe there was a max of 500 of these Purple Hearts made. The headphones are in excellent to near mint condition. There is no bubble wrap issues on these that was reported by others online. I would prefer local pickup and I'm available all weekend. Pictures:
  15. I'd take the POD. Last piece of the puzzle for 2 arms on my system.
