  1. Great live set! The best live version of "Rosalita" you'll hear. GLWTS D
  2. Item: Pro-Ject Phono Box SE ii Location: Bayside, Melbourne (will post at buyer's cost) Price: $200 Item Condition: Excellent - 9/10 Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Well regarded external phono amp offering MM and MC capability. I've used it with MC carts Denon DL-110 and Denon-103R and MM carts Shure V15 iii and Grace F-8 with great results. Very quiet background and very musical. Flexible with capacitance loading using jumpers on back. External PSU. I don't have the original box but will pack safely for postage. Manual available online. Pictures:
  3. Hey Rantan That figure refers to Power Handling (watts.) There is just not enough space on the label to include the word "handling". Here it is on the Adelaide Speakers website: Summoner 863 series. Great speakers for the money. (I declare that I have owned a pair for almost 10 years) D
  4. Possibly from the days before there were automatic timed expiry on listings.
  5. Just a ripper amp. Sublime sound, and amazing clarity and detail. I also had mine upgraded by Earle. The difference was amazing! This is a great way to get into valves. GLWTS! DaveR
  6. I've owned one of these previously. One of the most beautiful pieces of hi-fi sculpture you could ever own. Sounds as good as it looks too. (As nice as these photos are, they cannot do it justice.) GLWTS! DaveR
  7. Alright, I can't hold out any longer: Simon & Garfunkel (3 x Albums at $59) Thanks Jim. David
  8. Thanks Phil! You've got some nice gear! It is actually a DCD-QS10 in that system. Superb player, and very similar in appearance to the A1. I'm a sucker for Denon gear. When I sell this Kenwood I'm going to put my PMA-777 (100w) back in for a while. It will be an all Denon system! (What you can't see in those shots is a DP-3000 turntable, off to the RHS) D
  9. Hi Tal I would like to grab this if you will post to Melbourne. PM coming. Thanks David
  10. Thanks Pete. It's a cracker of an amp. I've had it hooked up with the Lenehans for a few weeks and it really makes them sing. It is a much more punchy sound with the Kenwood than the valves (which are a bit more nuanced and subtle). D
  11. Item: Kenwood KA-8100 Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne (happy to courier at your expense) Price: $900 Item Condition: Near Mint (9/10) Reason for selling: Not being used the way that it should. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank deposit. Extra Info: I love this amp, but it is currently housed in my man cave and is not getting the attention it deserves. It should be with someone who will use it every day. It is a damn fine piece of machinery and happily drives pretty demanding speakers. It has that typical 1970s Kenwood sound – punchy, a bit forward, but never harsh or shrill. It is never too warm or laid back (typical of Luxman and Yamaha) or too bright and sharp (Pioneer and Akai) – personal opinions of course! It got a write up at the Vintage Knob – so you know it has cred! http://www.thevintageknob.org/kenwood-KA-8100.html Have a look at a model 600 Supreme from 1975 and you will discover that the design philosophy of that iconic amplifier was carried over into the 7100 / 8100 / 9100 product line a few years later! The unit is NEAR MINT. There are a couple of vey small nicks on the edge of the face plate, but otherwise the face is unmarked. The case was a bit faded so I re-sprayed it with gloss black and it looks sensational. The original photos were taken before the respray. The indoor pics are after the respray. It has MM and MC capability for your turntable. Demos welcome, by arrangement. Specifications Power output: 75 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 7Hz to 50kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.03% Damping factor: 50 Input sensitivity: 2.5mV (MM), 150mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 85dB (MM), 110dB (line) Output: 150mV (line), 30mV (DIN), 1V (Pre out) Speaker load impedance: 4Ω to 16Ω Dimensions: 430 x 149 x 384mm Weight: 14.5kg Pictures: Edited February 24 by Prana69
