  1. Item: Vienna Acoustic Beethoven Location: Gippsland Price: SOLD Item Condition: Fair/Good cosmetically (see below). Performance excellent Reason for selling: Currently not being used and no suitable space. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal +fees, COD Only Extra Info: I have owned these speakers for approximately 10 years having owned both VA Haydn’s and VA Mozart’s plus numerous other brands.They are easily the best speakers I have owned and I have never felt the need to upgrade. I am ONLY selling because there is no space in the house to set these up properly. The first picture shows one of the speakers in the dining room so as you could imagine it is not really an appropriate set up as evident by there position in relation to the wall and buffet. They are currently stored under the bed in the spare bedroom. History: I purchased these off eBay (audio connection). In transit there was some minor damage to the rear of the cabinet – 2 dents/marks on each speaker. From the front and side they are NOT visible. One of the speakers has a series of small marks (almost like someone has used a ballpoint pen to indent the wood). I doubt they were made like this but you never know. It has no affect on performance and requires close inspection to notice them. The cabinets show some signs of fading. They have never been housed in direct sunlight but, due to the house design, were in a room filled with indirect sunlight due to large windows. If you leave the grills on you would be unaware of any fading. The grills are in excellent condition. Note: The dust caps are missing from the woofers- they came like that. I used them in my old house in a 4 m X 8 m room. Both houses were pet free and our children have started having their children so no little fingers have been near the speakers. Why don’t I use them in the lounge room? The lounge room really only lends itself to bookshelf speakers that can be placed up against the wall on existing shelving due to a large open fireplace. These really are fabulous sounding speakers. I would encourage any would be buyers to visit, inspect and audition the speakers. I am less than 2 hours from Melbourne CBD. Bring your own amp(s) or you can use my Densen Pre Power Combo. I do not have original packaging BUT delivery to Melbourne, SW Gippsland or as far as Bairnsdale might be possible as part of the sale. I do travel to the North East of Victoria from time to time so delivery might be possible. Impedance: 4 Ohms Frequency Response: 30 - 22,000Hz Sensitivity: 91dB Recommended Amplification: 50 - 300 Watts Drive Units: 2 X 7" XPP Spider Cone Woofers 2 X 5.5" XPP Cone Midrange 1.1" Silk Dome, Hand Coated Tweeter These were replaced in The VA range by Concert Grand Symphony which now retail for 10K new.

  2. PM with intention to buy
  3. Item: Solid Steel 4 Shelf Hifi Rack (Black) Location: Gippsland Price: $250 neg. Item Condition: Very Good. There is one section on the rack where the paint has chipped (see the photo). One of the rear legs has some marks visible (it is not scratched) (see the 1st photo)The shelves have some marks consistent with its age, which almost all (depending on the component dimensions) would be hidden. Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have owned and used the rack for over 10 years. Subsequently it has picked a few marks on the shelves and the one mentioned in the item condition. I can treat the chip with kill rust and touch it up. It comes with spikes that can be adjusted. Dimensions: Height 84 Cm Frame Width Opening 48 cm Depth Opening 34 cm Top shelf W X D 54 cm X 41 cm 3 X lower shelves W X D 47 cm X 38 cm Shelf Height opening Bottom 23 Cm other shelves 16 cm I travel to Melbourne periodically so delivery (or at least meeting somewhere) may be possible. Local pick up is welcome. Pictures:
  4. Item: Osborn Datalink Speaker Cables (1 X 3 meter Pair) + (1 X 2 Meter single cable) (Banana Plugs on ALL cables) Location: Gippsland Price: Sold Pending payment Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: All cables were used my home theatre setup with Vienna acoustic front and center speakers and either Gryphon or Densen Amps This is an affordable means to achieve a significant upgrade the sound in a home theater set up with the benefit of matching cables and sonic characteristics for the Front and Center Speakers for a very reasonable outlay. Pictures:
  5. Item: Gryphon Exorcist (it dispels magnetic build up in any system) Location: Gippsland Price: $220 neg. plus postage and PayPal fees (if paying via PayPal) Sold Item Condition: Fair Condtion. Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased exorcist years ago 2nd hand. The case is in excellent cosmetic condition but one of the screws, used to hold the access plate in position does not screw into the body fully. I simply used some clear tape so I didn't lose the screw. It requires a 9 volt battery. Plug it into any input (EXCEPT for a phono input!) Turn the volume up to normal listening levels and switch it on. It takes approximately 35 secs to run through. It is best if you leave the room or cover your ears during this process. It is recommended to be used after 5 on off cycles of your system or once a week if permanently on. I stopped using it as Densen Cd players perform the same task each time a CD is loaded. Pictures:
  6. Item: Coincident TRS 3m pair (10 ft) Speaker cable with cardas spades Location:Gippsland Price: $ 500 neg plus postage and PayPal fees (if paying via PayPal) Item Condition: Very Good Condition. Sheaths, Lettering are all excellent. Spades show some wear due multiple reconnections to Amps and speakers Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The Coincident TRS cables are the best I have owned. I used these with Vienna Acoustic Beethoven’s and are best suited to full range speakers. They are very thick and heavy cables. These were the last cables I have purchased and I have never felt the need to upgrade. These cables are designed for full range speakers and, as I am selling the Beethoven’s, I no longer have need for them. Over the years I have owned..... Coincident CST Analysis Plus Oval 9 Harmonic Technology ( Pro Silway) Osborn Datalink AudioNote and others.... Item: Coincident CST1 Speaker Cables 3 M pair with Cardas Spades Location: Gippsland Price: withdrawn from sale Item Condition: Good/very good condition. The lettering has faded while there is some wear on the spades due to being connected and disconnected to amplifiers and speakers. Cable sheaths are in very good condition with no marks, cuts etc. Reason for selling: Surplus due to downsizing Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: It has many of the qualities of the TRS but not the extended bass or soundstage. I used these with the Vienna Haydn’s and then Beethoven’s before upgrading to the TRS. Item: Osborn Data Link Speaker Cable with Bullet Plugs. 1 X 2 meter SINGLE cable Location: Gippsland Price: SOLD Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Used with a Vienna Acoustic Maestro Center Speaker (which is also for sale here on Stereonet ) Item: 1M pair Coincident CST1 RCA Interconnects (2 Pairs Available) Location: Gippsland Price: $ 180 Per pair neg. plus postage and PayPal fees (if paying via PayPal) Item Condition: Excellent Condition, minor marks on rca plugs. Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These were used between my Densen Cd Player and in between the Densen B250 and B330 Power Amp and Gryphon Tabu Pre Power before the Densen’s. They have a synergy with the coincident speaker cables but are excellent Ic’s. Like the speaker cables, after I purchased these cables, I have never felt the need to upgrade. Item: 2 x Silver Audio Power Burst Power cables @ 2.0 M Location: Gippsland Price: $ 150 each plus postage and PayPal fees (if paying via PayPal) SOLD Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus due to downsizing Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are produced a significant improvement over stock cables.

Item: Virtual Dynamics Master Series RCA Digital cable Location: Gippsland Price: $ 300 neg. plus postage and PayPal fees (if paying via PayPal) SOLD Item Condition: Excellent but some minor discoloration on the racy plugs from being connected and disconnected over the years. Reason for selling: Surplus. I no longer own a DAC Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Best digital cable I have owned by a long way. Used with a valve DAC. It is a very stiff cable and subsequently requires some space behind the components to be positioned. Item: Ear Science Powerbox Location: Gippsland Price: $ 120 neg. plus postage and PayPal fees (if paying via PayPal) SOLD Item Condition: Good. There is some yellowing of the power board and box but otherwise functions perfectly. Reason for selling: Surplus. I no longer own a DAC Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Used years ago before being stored ate I purchased The Silver Audio Powerburst cables Item: Consonance PW 3 Power Board Location: Gippsland Price: $ 95 plus postage and PayPal fees (if paying via PayPal) SOLD Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this from Greg Osborne rather than use a conventional power board with adapters for US Plugs. It made a noticeable improvement to the sound of the system. From Greg’s website… The PW-3 is a shielded and high quality power board which also allows the use of quality power leads which are fitted with power plugs from anywhere in the world. Very high quality components are used and the solid metal chassis allows for magnetic and RFI shielding not available in plastic power boards. Despite the fact that they do not contain filtering or conditioning circuitry, like the PW-1, a surprising sound quality improvement can result from using this board. TV reception is also improved if used with video sources. Pictures:
  7. Item: Vienna Acoustic Maestro Center Speaker (Black) Location: Gippsland Price: $600 $500 Item Condition: Very good- no noticeable marks except for tweeter dome dint. (It has been like that since I purchased the speaker with no effect on performance) Reason for selling: Surplus. No longer operating a home theater. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This was used as part of a home theater setup used first with a Gryphon Tabu 3 channel amp before I changed to Densen. It has performed flawlessly and proved excellent for both soundtracks and movies. I am selling off a pair of Vienna Acoustic Beethoven's (Rosewood) if you would like a pair front 3 speakers! It has only been played at moderate levels. It has been packed since moving a number of years ago and stored in the spare bedroom. I have the original box so shipping is possible. A demo is possible at my home. This center channel speaker is designed specifically to match the Mozart, Beethoven, and Mahler series of speakers. NOTE: After unpacking the speaker I have noticed the following: Some very light scratches on the top and rear of the speaker. They are very difficult to see but they do exist. The grill has a small tear.

    Withdrawn: Densen Vienna Acoustic System

    I was intending to use the funds to buy an integrated amp but a swap might work (your integrated amp) for one or more of the items listed above.

    Withdrawn: Densen Vienna Acoustic System

    Hi k2tsui, If there is interest in any individual components I will consider selling them. My preference is to sell off all the components as a group rather than individually. That said, if someone wants the cd player, someone else the pre /power combo and a third person the beethovens etc then I will separate. Let me know what you are interested in and I will see what eventuates . Hifi123
  11. Item: Densen Cd Player, Densen Pre/ Power amplifiers and Vienna Acoustic Beethoven Speakers Location: Gippsland Price: $ 10.5 K Negotiable Item Condition:Good to Very Good- See descriptions Reason for selling: I do not have the space to realize the systems potential and subsequently it is now stored and not being used. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: * Extra Info: If you are In Melbourne, Mornington Peninsula , West or South Gippsland I will deliver personally. After much consideration I have decided to part with my Densen system. Originally it was housed in an 8 X 5m dedicated room. I then moved into my partner’s house. The reality is we don’t have the space to do this system justice. We have spoken about closing in the court yard to create more space but it won’t happen. As we have no intention of moving in the foreseeable future its time to move the system on. From the pictures you can see it was housed on a Solid steel rack in the corner of the dining room and the Vienna acoustic Beethoven’s are up against the wall either side of a cabinet. It still sounded great but nothing like it did when it was set up correctly in a bigger room. For those not familiar with Densen has long been considered comparable to NAIM in sound. If you are prepared to Visit (I live 130Km Sth East of Melbourne) a demonstration is possible. Densen CD Player 400 XS – Black (7/10) due to age. No noticeable Marks $1.2K This is the legendary Densen Player that is still highly regarded. It preceded the current Series (410, 420 and 440) but most Densen owners prefer this over the current models due to its more analogue sound. I have compared it to the 410 and 420 and it easily betters them. Opinions are mixed when it is compared to the 440 with some people still preferring the 400xs. I have never heard a 440 so I cannot comment. I purchased the unit 2nd hand here on stereonet approximately 6 years ago. Then 2 years later I had the player serviced by Dallas Clarke and new laser installed. He commented that was a really good sounding player. I have had no issues since the service and the actual laser assembly is readily available. Densen B250 Pre amp – Albino (Silver)incl. Densen Sound Board SB1 (7/10) due to 2 Minor marks $2.9K You may have read my earlier ad for this component. This is now the mid range preamp in the Densen range I have had the unit for approximately 7 years and never experienced any issues. I got into Densen when I purchased a B110 – 60 Watt integrated amp and fell in love with the Densen 'Sound” I subsequently upgraded to a pre /power combo which resulted in a huge improvement in all areas. It can be upgraded to the 250 Plus and you can add an external power supply to increase its performance further. This pre is also fitted with Densen's internal Sound Board (SB-1 the entry-level version) . With the SB board you get analogue 5.1 and 7.1 line input and 5.1 and 7.1 line pre-out. This means that you can easily connect a DVD-player or SACD-player with 5.1 analogue out. The unit is in very good condition cosmetically for its age. It has 2 very small marks- one on the top towards the front left corner and one on the front. Prior to Densen I owned Rotel Michi, Forte Pre and Gryphon Tabu Pre. While listening is subjective, the Densen easily out performs these pre amps. Specifications Line- & tape inputs: 4 & 1 Preouts: 4 Power supply size: 3x20VA Storage capacity: 100.000uF THD + Noise @ rated output: Less than 0.05% Frequency response (+0 -3db): 2-500.000Hz Weight/shipping weight: 9/11 Kg Product dimensions (WxDxH): 440x310x64mm Densen B330 Power Amp – Albino (8/10) due to age and a scratch on rear of the amp $2.9K The B-330 is a direct descendent from the top of the line B-350 mono blocks. The B-350 mono blocks act as the internal reference at Densen. Basically, the B-330 is a stereo power amp based on the B-350's technology, and uses the distinct mono block cabinet with its recessed heat sinks as the basis for an extremely affordable reference power amplifier. The B-330 contains several exciting features. Externally on the back panel there is a switch to adjust the gain, so it either works perfect with a traditional preamp or with a CD with variable output. There is also a D-Sub15 connector, allowing for Link connection to other Densen products, and for auto power on/off. The D-Sub connector can be daisy-chained in multi room systems. Specifications Power output in 8 ohms: 2 x 120W Power output in 4 ohms: 2 x 240W Power supply size: 750VA Storage capacity: 110.000uF THD + Noise @ rated output: Less than 0.1% Weight/shipping weight: 15/17 Kg Product dimensions (WxDxH): 440x310x64mm Vienna Acoustic Beethoven’s $2.2K I have owned these speakers for nearly 9 years having owned both Haydn’s and Mozart’s. These are a stunning looking but, more importantly, a stunning sounding speaker finished in Brazilian Rosewood. They look like the current Beethoven Baby Grand Symphony Edition but without the external spike bracket. I purchased these off ebay. In transit there was some minor damage to the rear of the cabinet – some very small dents/marks. From the front and side they are NOT visible. They are easily the best speakers I have owned and I have never felt the need to upgrade. The cabinets show some signs of fading. They have never be housed in direct sunlight but due to the house design were in a room filled with sunlight due to large windows. If you leave the grills on you probably would be unaware. Vienna Acoustic Center Speaker (Black) $600 The tweeter has a small dent in it but otherwise is unmarked and works perfectly. Densen B300 Power Amp (Black) $300 This is an older power amp and was used for the Center speaker above. 100W into 8 ohms and 200 into 4 Easily better than Rotel power amps I have owned. * This power amp must be switched on manually. It does NOT work with the Denlink Cables In addition, if you purchase all six components above ,I will include the following: The Solid steel rack (as seen in the photos).This has been filled with sand and has spikes fitted Densens’ Gizmo Remote control and charger RRP $499 2 x1M pair Coincident CST1 RCA Interconnects RRP US $299 each when new 1 x 3 Meter Coincident TRS Speaker Cables (spades @ both ends) RRP $1000 US when new 2 x Denlink Cables that enable the Gizmo to switch the components on from standby simultaneously. 2 x Silver Audio PowerBurst Power cables @ 1.5 M * 1 x Silver Audio PowerBurst Power cables @ 1 M* 1 X Consonance PW 3 Power Board * The Power cables have US plugs so work with the Pw3 The current rrp for the system is Densen B420 $4290 @ Sydney Hifi Densen B250 $7590 @ Sydney Hifi Densen B330 $7590 @ Sydney Hifi Vienna Acoustic Beethovens Baby Grand SE $6999 @lifestyle store Sydney This means the replacement components are more than $26000 before any discounts Pictures:

  13. Item: Yamaha Tx 950 Tuner (Black) Location: Gippsland Price: $50 neg Item Condition: Very good with one tiny mark (it is really very small!) visible from the front and minor marks on the top from where the previous owner had stacked another componet Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: I used this in my old house. Great tuner but due to space constraints I can no longer use it. I have recently tested it and it works perfectly. I do NOT have any original packaging so pick up or meeting in Melbourne preferred. I can post and I will make every effort to protect the unit. Pictures: To follow....
  14. I have decided to keep the pre. It is no longer for sale.
