  1. Item: Cable and Isolation Location: Melbourne Price: Varies Item Condition: Used but in good condition. Reason for selling: Clean up Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit, COD Only Items: Pictures: - Van Den Hul AES-EBU 110 Ohm Professional 1M Balanced digital cable (Complete with box) ($100) ON HOLD The AES-EBU 110 Ohm Professional’s internal balanced construction contains two solid core centre conductors each consisting of a 0.75 mm solid core lead, made of high purity dense silver coated high purity matched crystal Oxygen Free Copper (OFC). Each lead exhibits a resistance of 4.0 Ohm/100 meter. The capacitance between both leads is very low: 47 pF/m. The two centre conductors’ respective red and transparent insulation is made of dense polyethylene, which together with their dense silver coating provides extra protection against external mechanical and corrosive aging factors. To provide a stable and precise 110 Ohm transmission line impedance, the centre conductors’ combined dense polyethylene insulation and mild 60 mm lay maintains a solid balanced line geometry. In addition, specially treated fibres are used as internal fillers. These act to further stabilise the geometry and furthermore render the cable insensitive to humidity penetration and any resulting impedance deviations or transmission losses. - Xindak VT3-BC Audio Damper-Shackles Shock Absorber Baseplate ($180) Model: VT3-BC Material: Base made of scented rosewood + Ball made of natural crystal Review: HF and MF are fine and gentle with more abundant details. MF is sweet and strong. LF is more flexible and has improved acoustic effect. Suggestion from the Factory: It is best suitable for upgrading acoustic systems with hard tone and too high HF and too low LF.  It is learned that vibration is archenemy affecting acoustic quality. Usually there are two resolutions. One is absorption; the other is isolation. But the XINDAK engineers have developed a new device, named as Spherical Cone Baseplate For Vibration Tuning, to solve damage to acoustic quality because of vibration. Its principle is to convert vertical vibration into horizontal displacement. The structure of SCBVT is: putting a ball in a pit of compact inert material, the base of acoustics put on the ball in a form of point contact. The result is: first, it makes play of isolating vibration; secondly, hazardous vibration of acoustics equably spreads inside the whole inert base through the ball and is absorbed. Meanwhile assortment of the base and the ball material is able to tune hazardous vibration of the former system in frequency point hurtless to acoustic quality. It will greatly reduce adverse affection from vibration and improve acoustic quality. Actual audition has proved adopting bases and balls of different materials gains different effects of acoustic quality and tone color. It is enough that just the put three Shock Absorber with balls like a triangle under acoustics such as CD for use. Diameter: 45mm Height: 39mm (Shock Absorber with Ball)
  2. Item: Fully Restored and Updated Original Quad II Valve Amplfier Location: Melbourne Price: $2500 Item Condition: Physically it has a bit of marks here and there, please refer to the pictures. Electronically, it is perfect as it has been fully restored, checked, tested and runs like a brand new valve amp.

Trust me, better power cords has made it into a different beast! Reason for selling:Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit, COD Only Extra Info: Obviously I do not have the original box but will be well packed if interstate buyers are interested.
  3. Item: AVM Audio AVM - P 1.2 MM/MC Phono Preamplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $750 ( RRP is $1249 ) Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit, COD Only Extra Info: Involving Analog Sound, Hand-Selected Parts, Superb German-Made Build Quality: AVM P 1.2 MM/MC Phono Preamplifier Focuses on and Preserves the Details That Matter The AVM P 1.2 MM/MC phono preamplifier takes its marching orders from the need to pay attention to the closest details – such as the microscopic signals that must be carefully processed in the analog chain. Graced with remarkable transparency, the German-made P 1.2mines what's embedded in your records' grooves and does so with non-fatiguing naturalism. You'll experience the warmth, dynamics, nuances, and liveliness for which LPs are increasingly revered. And like all AVM products, P 1.2 claims stellar fit and finish on the outside and inside. In the case of P 1.2, what you see is what you get – and it's hard to argue with the results. Featuring individual inputs for both MM and MC, as well as audiophile-quality phono load adaptors (100/200/1,000 ohms) that can be plugged in parallel, P 1.2 concentrates on minimized signal paths to preserve the integrity of the musical information. Its design inherently guards against electromagnetic interference while the massive, one-piece extrusion aluminum housing protects the circuit board from microphonic effects and degrading vibrations. A super-quiet external power supply, hand-selected film capacitors and metal-layered resistors round out a component whose clean looks mirror its sonic clarity. Pictures:

  8. Item: Naim Audio UnitiServe High End Music Server, CD Ripper with 2TB Storage. Location: Melbourne Price: $1500 Item Condition: Used but great condition with power cord, original packaging and PSU. Reason for selling: Clean out Payment Method: Pickup - Cash or Direct Deposit Extra Info: This unit basically Rips CD in perfect bit, Store it internally and share it in your network (ie: Sonos, Heos and Bluesound can access it) and Stream to your main system with digital out. Below info taken from Naim's website: If the HDX is the pinnacle of our digital knowledge, the UnitiServe represents the distilled essence of our experience. It delivers the fundamentals of the HDX’s high-end music server technology in a compact, half-width enclosure. Like the HDX it offers bit-perfect ripping, the ability to serve music to a wide range of compatible devices, control via the n-Serve iOS app and, of course, all the performance for which our network-connected products are widely famed. If you already own a large digitally stored music collection or plan to rip more than the 2,400-CD capacity of a regular UnitiServe, consider the UnitiServe-SSD version. It offers all the functionality of the UnitiServe but substitutes its standard 2TB internal hard disk for a 16GB solid-state drive, sufficient to ensure smooth and fast browsing of your content. Your music collection can then reside on an external network-attached- storage device, or NAS, allowing access to as much storage as your budget or needs could ever reasonably require. Features Bit-perfect CD ripping to internal 2TB hard disk, sufficient for 2,400 CDs in uncompressed form Supports a broad range of music formats: WAV, FLAC, Apple Lossless, AIFF, AAC, Windows Media-formatted files, Ogg Vorbis and MP3 Naim Audio Desktop Client, supporting browsing of music files, player set-up and more via PC Naim Audio Extended Music Database delivers track-level resolution for music browsing and selection Naim Audio Network Scanning discovers all playable music and accompanying data on networked PC and Mac computers Naim Audio UPnP server streams audio to any compatible UPnP device, such as NaimUniti 2 24bit/192kHz playback and storage Allows local playback when used with Naim Audio DAC or digitally-equipped amplifier vTuner 5* full-service internet radio iOS n-Serve app for intuitive control Technology & Craft The UnitiServe extracts data from CDs using unique, in-house developed techniques and algorithms to ensure that the ripped data represents a faultless replica of the CD. The data is then stored on a 2TB internal hard disk with space for up to 2400 CDs, or on an external Network Attached Storage (NAS) with potential for space that can easily out pace your music collection. UnitiServe also stores the metadata (artwork, track titles, artists, performers, composers) for all ripped CDs, regardless of their storage location, automatically downloaded from allmusic.com. The Naim Audio Extended Music Database format means that music can be found easily by searching for any stored parameter. You'll never lose track of a CD again. But there's far more to UnitiServe performance than bit-perfect CD ripping and storage. Its external power supply is designed to minimise mains injected noise and it incorporates a decoupled hard-disk assembly that both minimises noise and any possibility of disturbance from external vibration. Digital signal management within the UnitiServe is based on techniques developed for the Naim Audio HDX and the digital outputs on the CD5 XS and CDX2 CD players. UnitiServe is a true Naim Audio product that deploys highly innovative and advanced technology simply to serve the music. Pictures:

  12. Item: TELOS Quantum Noise Resonator Location: Melbourne Price: $1250 Item Condition: Used but great condition with original packaging. Reason for selling: Clean out Payment Method: Pickup - Cash or Direct Deposit Extra Info: This is the very first time a circuit design which is a combination of resonance and Noise and transform into light! The Internal quantum modules is combined with eight resonate channel and a core processor, the engineer detect the power outlet wave type by internal IC, and generates instant synchronous phase distortion compensation which is made for the beautification waveform through precise resonance and reduce phase distortion. Based on the noise and surges with energy conversion circuit design, it manufactures the difference of noise above 1KHz and make it fall into light energy! Thus a whole new audio processing technology-QNR has been released, The actual listening experience to the sound system make more sense and focus on, more precise audio clarity, the whole background is black and silence, music is enhanced with more charm and smoothness. Since TELOS QNR using parallel circuit design, so there is no limitation in power ampere that is caused on traditional series processor, QNR is able to provide high-wattage electricity, no dynamic depression, reduce detail, sound dry, sound field narrow… such side effect caused due to excessive pursuit of power crunch,This is one audio dedicated power processor that has been developed in perfect balance, and is built for the essential of music, and has spent for years, without any compromise of the actual listening and tuning.
