    Agree absolutely..............were you aware that in 2016 this album became known as "Volume I" and a Volumes II, III, IV & DVD was released in a single package (EXILE/Legacy). I understand that these were compiled from the same eight sets of live performances taped in 1973 (The Troubadour, Santa Monica Civic and the Rainbow Theatre) and there is no overlapping with the Volume I, original 1973 double album release. Think this was released on vinyl plus DVD but I couldn't find them anywhere and had to settle for the CDs and DVD. Notwithstanding , it's still outstanding music from these great performances. If you haven't got them already it's a great bunch of recordings.

  3. Item: Line Magnetic LM 518iA 845 valve integrated/stereo amplifier - Gold Series Location: Perth Price: $4,500.00 Item Condition: Excellent, as new - perfect cosmetically and operationally Reason for selling: Surplus to needs Payment Method: Pickup - cash, bank transfer Extra Info: Original purchaser of this terrific 22 wpc valve amplifier - can be used in integrated form or as a stand alone stereo power amp with separate pre-amplifier by the flick of a switch. Purchased from the Australian distributor - 240 volt unit. Bias adjustment for 845 tubes and hum balancers for each channel - never been used as it is totally silent in operation. Comes in original packaging, manual, remote control and valve cage ( never used). Amp has just 102 hours use and the stock Psvane 845 valves just 52 hours as Psvane Western Electric 845 Replicas were used in the amp as an alternative for awhile. The amp is for sale with the stock Psvanes, but if reuired can be swapped out for the WE Replicas (56 hours use only) for an additional $500.00 All other stock valves were replaced with Genelex Gold Lion valves viz. 2 x KT66 (replacing 6L6s), 2 x 12AX7s and 1 x 5AR4 - total cost of unit was $5,700. Happy to demonstrate to to serious buyers. Pictures:
  4. Listen to Decky, he is giving you a tip on life. You may well have spent 45 years in electronics, (who cares), but learnt little about humanity.You sure as hell need a lesson in modesty, politeness and accepted human behaviour when participating within a group of people like the members of SNA. You clearly have a contribution to make, but your current behaviour generates un-necessary animosity. So whatcha say and give it a try.
  5. Happy to post anywhere in Australia at buyers’s expense.
  6. Item: Pair Lamm ML 2.2 Single Ended Triode monoblock amplifiers Location: Perth Price: $23.500.00 Item Condition: Perfect cosmetically and operationally Reason for selling: Using ML3 Signatures Payment Method: Pickup - cash, bank transfer Extra Info: 18 w of SET purity. I am the original purchaser of these amps from the Australian distributor. They come in their factory wooden crates with all internal packaging and very comprehensive manuals. 4 ohm/8 ohm/16 ohm speaker terminals. Option on the rear panel enables user to switch between any one of four voltages - 100/120/220/240 (with appropriate fuse change) - they have naturally always been set at 240 volts. Single ended (rca) inputs and pseudo balanced inputs (xlr). Have primarily been used with 92dB/4 ohm speakers - they have little trouble driving a very wide range of speakers to more than satisfactory levels. I have no option but to refer you to Lamm's website which provides copies of most reviews/awards. Pictures:
  7. Item: Finite Elemente HD10 Master Reference amplifier/equipment platform, with Finite Elemente Cerebase feet - Canadian maple wood, custom stained jarrah colour Location: Perth Price: $1,950.00 Item Condition: Excellent overall - no scratches or dents. One very light mark which cannot be made to show up in the photos. Reason for selling: Sold equipment for which it was used Payment Method: Pickup - cash, bank transfer Extra Info: The very sturdy, German made, beautifully built HD10 is the largest Finite Elemente platform with a capacity of 120 kgs. Overall size is 79.0 cms x 59.0 cms and inner carrying platform 66.5 cms x 46.5 cms. Footers are the top of the range Finite Elemente Cerebase feet (alone a value of $1,200). The units are constructed of maple wood and this one was factory stained jarrah colour. Steel spikes attached to the bottom of the carrying platform fit into steel cups in the skeleton of the main structure. These are the most stable and effective platforms I have found and am holding onto the other four I have. I use them under heavy valve equipment - I initially had the equipment (35 kgs. and 80 kgs.) on the floor and was frankly amazed at the overall improvement in sound quality achieved when the FE platforms were introduced - particularly with sprung wooden floors. Original price $3,360.00. Pictures:

Also will supply a new, matched pair of unused EAT 300B valves which I had as spares - ran them for a few hours when purchased and then again recently for a couple of hours.............these are new valves ($1,295). These are the last version 3 of these amplifiers. They are switchable between 4 and 8 ohms. Happy to demonstrate to serious buyers. Pictures:
