  1. Item: YAMAHA DSP-A1 AV Receiver/Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $500 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is the Yamaha DSP-A1 in the beautiful gold colour with polished wooden sides. It’s in very nice condition both cosmetically and technically. It’s in spotless condition. The original price was almost $5000 new. It comes with the original backlit remote and manual. It can be used in a 7 speaker configuration but also in stereo mode and it is one of the best receivers I heard. It can be used with the included DSP modes but also without them in direct mode. The bass is one of the best. I used it in the digital configuration (optical) and again the internal dac is very good too. Mains - 110W + 110W Centre - 110W Rears - 110W + 110W Fronts - 35W + 35W - Digital sound field processor - Dolby digital AC-3 decoder - Dolby Pro Logic surround decoder - DTS Decoder - Cinema DSP - Auto input balance control for Dolby Pro Logic Surround - Test tone generator - Backlight learning remote control I can post it at the buyer expense. It will be double boxed.
  2. I had the chance of comparing the AX1 with the A1...By comparison I've found AX1 a bit more brighter and "edgy" compared with the A1. The AX1 was one of the first true home theatre receivers. Not that the A1 is boring but I can listen to it for hours without any fatigue. The A1 is more "analogue" and I think I can really see it in a stereo system due to its musicality. Apart from the DSP modes a few things are digital..even the volume pot is analogue.. Looking up different forums I've found that many upgraded from the A1 but they never actually experienced the same sound quality in the newer and "better" receivers ..
  3. Many thanks. I'm sure I will regret selling it sooner or later.
  4. Item: Fidelity Research FRT-5 MC step-up transformer (SUT) Location:Melbourne Price: $650 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale is a nice Fidelity Research FRT-5 MC step-up transformer (SUT) in very good working condition. Some signs of use on top consistent with age. Good with low impedance MC cartridges like Ortofon, Koetsu, Lyra, Fidelity Research and so on. Three separate tonearms can be connected through this!!! The original cable has been professionally upgraded to a shielded, pure silver coated cable and Neutrik RCA plugs with fantastic results to this already competent SUT. It sounds rich, transparent and free of any noise(hum). I can post at the buyer expense. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  6. Item: Sony HAP-Z1ES Location: Melbourne Price: $1850 or $2000 with a 4tb external hdd and cd ripper. Item Condition: As New Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I wanted to keep it for another setup but now I’m selling it due to some changes in my financial priorities. It’s in absolutely top condition and it’s been used a few times only. Not a single scratch as it looks brand new. Everything works as expected and comes complete with the original box and all the other accessories. I can include a brand new Seagate 4TB usb external hard drive and an external cd for ripping a cd collection for another $150 for $2000 in total ( it has an internal 1tb hard drive already). Also the ripping process is really good as all the tracks are automatically edited through the Gracenote service. The unit has been updated to the latest software as Sony still supports this model. With the new software the unit now allows an external dac through the usb interface (the internal dac is very good anyway). A very nice unit built to the highest standards with Sony clearly over-engineering it . The construction is remarkably stable and rigid. The sound is organic and Sony uses DSD Remastering engine ( used even for the internet radio) where the signal is up-sampled to DSD 128 and also a Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE), which restores a natural sound to compressed files. Lots of good reviews over the internet. I can post it at the buyer expense as I have the original box and inserts. The unit will be double boxed. “Basically, the Sony HAP-Z1ES is a music-file player like an iPod, but it improves on Apple's paradigm in every way but portability. First, it can play—and enhance the sound of—almost any format, lossless, or lossy: DSD (DSF, DSDIFF at 2.8 or 5.6MHz), PCM (16-, 24-, or 32-bit at 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4, or 192kHz), WAV, AIFF, FLAC, ALAC, ATRAC Advanced Lossless, ATRAC, MP3, AAC, and WMA. Second, it has a 1TB hard drive for storage, and supports the attachment of an additional drive via USB. Third, it offers wired and wireless network connectivity to/from your computer, so that you can upload, download, back up, and restore your files, and enjoy Internet radio streaming via vTuner. Fourth, the HAP-Z1ES, which Sony calls a DSD Remastering Engine, can upconvert any digital source to 128fs DSD. And fifth, Sony has included its Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE), which, it says, restores a natural sound to compressed files” Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  7. Item: Osborn Silverlink XLR Balanced Interconnects 1m(1 pair available) Location: Melbourne Price: $120 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:"Osborn Silverlink is the result of several years of careful experimenting with many different types of cabling and insulation materials. Silverlink is made from pure extruded silver wire which is specially made for Osborn Loudspeakers. It is extruded into one continual length. Many reference cables up to $6,000 per pair were used as comparisons during the selection phase. Neither I, nor any of my customers have yet found an interconnect to match the performance of the Silverlink. Silver Interconnects often suffer from a brittle top end and a restricted bass performance. The sonic purity, transparency, inner detail and soundstage of the Silverlink is extraordinary in both XLR and Single Ended interconnects.." from www.osbornloudspeakers.com.au/osborn-speaker-cables . Can post them at the buyer's expense. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  9. Item: Location:S-E Melbourne Price: $350 shipping included Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Don't know the exact number of hours but stylus and cartridge are in nice condition. It sounds very good. Pictures:
  10. The best would be to have a mono cartridge as it reads the information horizontally and this applies to old vinyl especially. This is because the mono cartridge reads only horizontally as it's meant for mono vinyl. The stereo cartridge would read the info both vertically (where there is no info but only noise) and horizontally and for old vinyl this would increase the surface noise due to ware and the dirt . I have the feeling that for new vinyl the surface noise would be a lot less. This is just a view based on different opinions. I think I would really like to have a mono setup with an old mono cartridge.
  11. Item: AT160ML MM Cartridge With Audio-Technica headshell.
