  1. @balk2117 Mate - you know that my instrument library is open to you for those special occasions when it would help. Fancy an hour or two in front of the system with vino and a guitar in hand tomorrow? A
  2. Item: David Buttrose classical guitar (1960s Ramirez style) Location: Sydney Price: $6,500 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Can't keep them all Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: 1960s Ramirez inspired guitar, but with better playability. This guitar has a deep, rich voice with plenty of overtones. Raffael Agostino played it and was very impressed. If you want the power and depth of a carbon fibre lattice braced Australian style guitar, but with the voicing and subtelty of a traditional build technique then this may be the guitar for you. The rosette is also worth mentioning. David inlays them himself and the quality and detail is astounding. The pictures do not do it justice. Pictures:
  3. Item: Tayor Grand BTO Grand Concert acoustic guitar - Custom Wood Set (Laurel back/sides (also described as "Tasmanian Blackwood", German Spruce top, Adirondack CV bracing), Mahogony neck, Ebony veneer, Abalone rosette Location: Sydney Price: $7,500 Item Condition: Excellent. Some pick marks in the usual place on the top, but otherwise faultless. Pickguard has not been installed and would completely cover all marks (I have leaned the pickguard on the bridge for one of the photos... not perfectly position, but gives you the impression). Reason for selling: Can't keep them all. I really love this guitar - the neck is amazing and whenevr I have a new piece I'm having trouble with this comes out. But it fits in a niche where I have a few very nice vintage guitars, so this is on the chopping block. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Really wonderful little guitar, with plenty of volume, the ability to attack as hard as you like without overdriving the top but also gorgeously responsive when played delicately. And on top of that, a neck that makes it play as easily as an electric. Pictures:
  4. Item: Leica M Monocrom Typ 246 Location: Sydney Price: $7,300 - firm Item Condition: Exellent. A few very light marks, but no dents, scratches or anything serious (except perhaps some light scrathes on base plate). Very low shutter count. Reason for selling: I've actually regressed further and am now shooting by B&W on film. With the SL and the M10 this is seeing less use than it should. In two minds about moving this on to be honest... expect I'll probably just end up buying another one and dropping $3K... or more likely buying the M10 version when it finally arrives in late 2018 or early 2019. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought from a bricks and mortar store in Sydney. Includes all original packaging. Still under warranty. Original strap unused in box and I'll throw in the orange Leica strap shown in the pics. Pictures:
  5. Item: Montblanc Writers Edition 1992 Ernest Hemingway Fountain Pen Location: Sydney Price: $2500 Item Condition: Very good. Used but not abused. Has been serviced by Montblanc in Germany. Reason for selling: Too many pens Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The first and most collectible of the Writers Edition pens, this one is gorgeous. I have used this pen for many years and had it serviced by Montblanc about a year ago. I am no longer writing as much and am culling my pen collection to those that travel well. This one doesn't as it gets some nib creep which can move into the cap, so best used as a desk pen. Nib size M. Pictures:
  6. Item: Tannoy Autograph Mini bookshelf speakers Location: Sydney Price: $1,380 Item Condition: Good save for a small mark on one of the speakers, which was repaired by the previous owners. Clearly shown in the photos Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Difficult to find, cult speakers from Tannoy. Pictures:
  7. @twaino I have approved this one mate, but please reformat your advert to comply with the For Sale Guidelines.
  8. Item: Korg MR-2000S studio DSD recorder Location: Sydney Price: $770 Item Condition: Very good - works perfectly, but NOTE that one of the rack ears was dented in transport at one point. Still actually fits a rack, but has a cosemetic blemish which is plainly shown in the photo. Reason for selling: Dreams of ripping my whole vinyl collection have died with the realisation of the time required to drive kids all over Sydney every weekend. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Japanese unit, so says 100v. Actually works on 100-240v. Korg's excellent Audiogate software comes free with the unit. Pictures:
  9. Stax SR-007 mk2 headband replacement

    Where they were bought originally... but wondering if there is anyone who can do it on the spot... I know Len Wallis don't handle their own repairs.
  10. I'm getting old, and so are my favourite headphones. After cycling through MANY different setups, I keep coming back to the SR-007 mk2. However, the elastic on the leather part of the headband is stretched now. Does anyone know anywhere in Sydney to get it replaced?

  12. This item has been withdrawn from sale or relisted.
  13. Item: HiFiman HE-1000 headphones (RRP $3.5K). Note that the Silver Dragon cable is NOT included in the sale (cost USD $630 but I will sell separately for AUD$450). Location: Sydney (can post anywhere in Australia) Price: $2.2K Item Condition: Excellent. Very little use (maybe 60 hours). Probably not even fully run in. Includes all original box, packaging and contents. Reason for selling: Don't use them enough to justify a big headphone setup. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased new from Addicted to Audio about a year ago. I am the only owner (so far). Condition is outstanding and would suit someone looking for as new headphones. Pictures:
