  1. Which model did you have and what happened to it? I'm keen to hear what they are failing from these days.
  2. The 8801A is a pre-amp of a similar league as a 4520. Obviously no power amp in the 8801a so you'd go to a 4520 if you want to consolidate the number of devices you own and minimise losses from all the interconnects.
  3. Price drop - Don't be afraid to make an offer. I won't be offended but I may say no.
  4. Item: Denon AVR-4520 Flagship AV Receiver Location: Wollstonecraft, NSW (Will consider shipping Australia wide) Price: $1000 $890 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Barely used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer covers fees), COD Only Extra Info: This is a barely used flagship 9.2 channel AV receiver with 150W per channel at 0.05% THD+N. If you're in the market for an AV receiver you'll note that Denon power amp specs are now quite anemic. (e.g. 95W @0.08% for the AVR-X2500h, 105w @0.08% for the AVR-X3500h). The Denon AVR-4520 has the same power amp modules as the current flagship Denon AVR-X8500h with an RRP of $6000. Enjoy flagship sound without the flagship price. Supports 4K HDMI switching AL32 and 32bit DACs (No compromise DAC quality) Audyssey Multeq XT32 (512x the precision of regular Audyssey) Processing and pre-outs for 11.2 channels (add external power amps to upgrade) Gold connectors Dual subwoofer support (huge improvement over single subwoofer) 7 HDMI inputs + 3 HDMI outputs Apple Airplay (Stream Spotify or other Apple music) Denon remote app (use a phone or tablet to control your receiver) Made in Japan (current Denons are made in China or Vietnam) Full specs here https://www.denon.co.uk/uk/product/hometheater/avreceivers/avr4520ci Outstanding amplifier measurements here (172.6W into 8Ohm to 0.1% distortion) https://www.soundandvision.com/content/denon-avr-4520ci-av-receiver-test-bench Pictures:
  5. Item: Gold Male XLR to Male RCA interconnects (two 1.5m cables) Location: Wollstonecraft, NSW Price: $25 (Free postage Australia wide) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Never used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Connect common mode RCA connections to a power amplifier or other device with differential inputs.

  6. Item: Monitor Audio RS6 Floorstanding speakers - Black Oak colour Location: Wollstonecraft, NSW (Packed in original packaging and will post Australia wide) Price: $750 for floorstanders + $250 for matching RSLCR centre speaker Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Need space for new toys Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer covers 3% fee), direct deposit Extra Info: Single owner. I bought these new and they've been well cared for. They've brought immense joy and pleasure. I love these speakers and after auditioning every Monitor Audio Silver generation since their release (Rx, 5G, 6G) I understand why they are legendary. Sometimes the latest and greatest models just don't sound as good as the products they replace. The RS6 were noted as one of Monitor Audio's best products of all time by WhatHiFi. See link below. https://www.whathifi.com/features/13-of-the-best-monitor-audio-products-of-all-time I prefer the sound of these over the current series available today. Listening impression: Bass is extremely low and tight. They seem punchier than similarly spec'd speakers (e.g. other monitor audio Silvers). Smooth highs. Very capable and enjoyable speaker. Here's a recent review on youtube from a guy who spends megabucks on his Hi-Fi gear. Recent RS6 Review These are currently packed in their original boxes ready to ship if needed. Includes: Speakers, grills, plinths, feet and spikes. Original packaging. Pictures:
  7. Price drop and free postage to those interstate.
  8. Item: Hypex Ncore NC400 Stereo Power Amplifier Location: Wollstonecraft, NSW (free postage Australia wide) Price: $1200 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: I live in a very quiet apartment complex and don't need this much power Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer pays 3% fee) Extra Info: If you haven't heard of Hypex Ncore Amps, I have one word to describe them. INCREDIBLE!! These things are giant killers. When you compared these to amplifiers 10 times their price, you'll understand why people love Ncore so much. The Hypex Ncore not only measure extremely well but they sound silky smooth with effortless power and slam. This amplifier is paired with a Hypex SMPS1200A400 power supply to deliver the following specifications. 200W into 8ohm 400W into 4ohm 600W into 2ohm Output impedance: 1 milli-Ohm (yep, so ridiculously low your speaker cable has more impedance) THD+N, 20Hz<f<20kHz : 0.0007% Amplifier was built by James Romeyn. Refer to the following link and forum to see how well these amplifiers measure. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/review-and-measurements-of-hypex-nc400-diy-amp.5907/ Refer to the following link for reviews from the Ncore NC400 listening tour. People with amplifiers 10 times the price sold their gear after hearing Ncore amps. What does that tell you about their incredible design? https://www.audiocircle.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=3dgrraljjh239mt88g3upu5nn0&amp;topic=105310.0 Listening impressions: Dead quiet, extremely low distortion (hear music the way it's supposed to sound) Powerful, precise, tight bass (feel the music) Extremely efficient (amazingly compact and cool, save money on power bills) Loads of headroom (power supply can handle peaks of 1200W) Pictures:
  9. I think I'm a bit obsessed with Subwoofers. Here's a bargain on my new Velodyne 12" SPL-1200 Ultra if you're in the market for one. http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280346706043&_trkparms=tab%3DSelling eBay Item# 280346706043 Note: the original Velodyne 10" SPL-1000 Ultra is no longer available.
  10. Would you guys be willing to put off the purchases a week or so and open the group buy to the rest of Australia? I'm in Sydney and I might be interested in a PB13-Ultra if we get a good group discount. I'm sure I could get interest from at least one other person as well if you could delay the purchases. If it's worth anything I could stir up interest in some of the other audio related forums. I only just saw this topic and if I had seen it earlier I would have been right on it. A few percent discount on these big purchases works out to several hundred dollars.
  11. Item: Velodyne SPL-1000 Ultra Subwoofer Location: Sydney Item Condition: Almost new, 1 week old. Still have box and all packaging Reason for selling: Bought it on impulse. My brother has offered me his bigger Velodyne, bless his soul Price: Normally sells for $2299, Available here for a bargain $1800 Payment Method: local pickup - Cash. Paypal for interstate buyers. Buyer pays for shipping and paypal fees. Extra Info: Velodyne makes amazing subwoofers. The ultra is the latest in the SPL range. This one is a powered enclosed design with a 1200W RMS 2400W Peak Class D Amp. It also comes with a little microphone for auto-EQ and a remote control to change volume and presets. I'm still amazed how clean and tight the bass is for such a compact design. You really get what you pay for with subwoofers. It's glossy black and in perfect condition. There are plenty of reviews on the net but full specs and a picture can be found at the following Velodyne website http://www.velodyne.com/products/product.aspx?ID=38&sid=100q383d Pictures: http://www.hemagazine.com/files/Optimum%20Single_300dpi.jpg http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/images/stories/2008/december-2008/velodyne-optimum-12-front-fig-2.jpg http://www.hometheaterhifi.com/images/stories/2008/december-2008/velodyne-optimum-12-remote-fig-3.jpg
