  1. There is nothing to lose and lots to gain. Think of all those SN members waiting to buy bargains if it comes through. Ive got one already and it is great but manual turntables... does anyone really love them?
  2. Im a bit chastened to divulge that it is actually in my Purchased history. I bought it in another account that logs in, using an old email account. Ebay were quick to help. sorry.
  3. yes i did. It isnt in my Ebay purchased history. it is in my Paypal.
  4. I bought one too. I have one already which I paid a lot for. Im not sure if i want it to be genuine or not. :|
  5. After dropping off my AU-717 for recapping on 8th Feb, I rang the workshop on 30th March to just comment that I would be in Bali from 5th April for 2weeks. He then happened to ring 2 days later asking when I could pick it up. What With organising a partner, a kid, dog sitter for the trip, and transport it took me about a minute to say, I would be there by 5:30 . I am in Ubud, (partners call) getting Eat, Love Pray when what i really want is Elvis Costello asking me whats so funny about Peace Love and Understanding on My Technics sl-1300, AU-717 and Yamaha NS-690ii. (photos to come). sorry for the long winded intro. What size step down transformer should I consider for my 110 Volt amplifier? Would this suffice? https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Giantz-1000W-240V-TO-110V-Step-Down-Stepdown-Transformer-Voltage-Converter-AU-US/392148988087?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649 Thanks in advance.
  6. Yamaha NS-690ii would be very good. They come up often.
  7. If going with CVE and Joseph, my advice is to insist upon a full notation of what was fixed and replaced before you leave amplifier there. Not just a total and hours worked (if you're lucky). My receiver is fixed and runs fine but if I sell it i would like to show any prospective purchaser what my $400 was spent on.
  8. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Yamaha-NS-670-Speakers/113330924593?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D56496%26meid%3D3ac9632a907e4c8fb747bc3eec21d2ba%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D113675546601%26itm%3D113330924593&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851 Seems cheap.
  9. its easily found on here in Great Buys on Ebay and Gumtree.
  10. I made an offer an hour before the auction closed. I am very happy to have won. I didnt plan it. But yes Good idea to have asked here. I have put my AU-417 up for sale in the classifieds. If anyone wants to try it out I am around Elwood/Brighton.
  11. Ive purchased an AU-717 that needs relay correction/replacement according to the seller. I have not tested it and am happy to have it checked and fixed. Seller has said this fix http://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/sansui-au-717-distortion-in-right-channel.753004/ is all thats required. I did get it for a pretty good price so I have dropped it off at Open Ear in Brunswick for review/inspection. Anyway speaking to the audio engineer and owner Dick Straight (real name I think) he quickly went through the option of how my investment might escalate (always an intriguing grey area for me). It seems if a high quality service suffices, all good. I doubt this will be the case as although only just meeting the seller quickly I was impressed with his knowledge and his other gear. (he has a Marantz 2600). I am a trusting soul (sucker) and did get ripped off on Gumtree buying a AU-517 only a few months ago. (My fault really, I went against obvious safe dealing protocols and sent money). Anyway if it is less that a recap they have agreed to take the job on. Open Ear say they dont have the time to check and replace all capacitors and it would not be worth my while. While I am happy to be told it wont cost more than $250 I will get it in working condition and it will be "fixed" (fingers crossed). I do realise I havent found a a Sansui expert. I will consider a Sansui specialist for a complete makeover in a couple of years. This post was supposed to be about me saying how excited I am to get a serious AU amp. I cant wait to hook it up to my Aurum Cantus 620's or my Yamaha NS-690 ii.
  12. Item: Sansui AU-417 Amplifier Location: Brighton Vic Price: $475 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Too many Amps, Always looking for something new, Would love to keep it, etc.. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:I am selling my Sansui AU-417. It is 65 Watts per channel. and is a 240 Volt model. It has just been serviced by Open Ear Audio in Brunswick. I paid $400 about 3 years ago and the servicing (invoice included) cost $99. Im selling it for $475. The AU series Amps are from the late 70's. This is a classic audiophile Sansui Amp produced at a time when Sansui were making their best hi-fi, made in Japan. It is built like a tank and all controls have a beautiful solid and smooth feel. It weighs 12.2 kg. I would prefer pickup as this amp is nearly 40 years old. I can pack it if need be. The 1st image is from the web. t looks almost the same but I will add photos inside and out tonight. Pictures:
