  2. Item: Audioquest DragonFly Red Location: Fitzroy North or Melbourne CBD Price: $220 + postage (if applicable) Item Condition: mint (but see below) Reason for selling: not used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Selling my DragonFly Red, which is in mint condition (see photos) and basically unused... I reckon I would have used it for maybe 30 minutes in total, probably less. Comes with original packaging, also in mint condition. In preparation for selling, I just now upgraded the firmware to the latest version, 1.7. The only thing is that I have misplaced the little pouch for it... I will have it somewhere but haven't yet been able to find it. When I do, I'm happy to send it to the buyer. Photos:
  3. Wow, that takes me back! I think i still have a copy of Stink in my vinyl stash... some of those guitar solos are burnt into my brain!
  4. Argh, this is terrible news. Chris Winter opened my pre-teen world to so much new music, it really changed my life. Frustratingly, i unknowingly met him some years back at an art gallery... it was only after he left that i discovered who i had been taking to (and sadly not about music!) What i really wanted to do was to tell him how important Room to Move had been to me... ... will have to play the Hen's March through the Midden and the Four Poster Bed in his honour.... - r.
  5. This is just heartbreaking: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/11/us/master-recordings-universal-fire.html?module=inline Also https://www.nytimes.com/2019/06/11/magazine/universal-fire-master-recordings.html?action=click&module=Top Stories&pgtype=Homepage
  6. Wow, i obviously underpriced this, as I have never had my inbox flooded with so many PMs wanting to buy! @Cono28 is first in line! Sorry to everyone else. I will confirm the sale once I receive payment. - r
  7. Item: FirstWatt F7 power amplifier Location: Fitzroy North or CBD, Melbourne Price: $2700 Item Condition: mint (see photos) Reason for selling: not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this amplifier solely because I always wanted to hear a FirstWatt amp, and the reviews suggested this was the one to get (unless you can afford and use the lower powered SIT ones) It's a great amp, but (as expected) not as good as my single-ended 845 monoblocks, so it has been sitting in my audio rack for the better part of a year, unused. Now I am getting pressure to clear out my unused audio gear, so this is up for sale. Specs: Output power: 20Wpc into 8 ohms (1% THD at 1kHz); 30Wpc into 4 ohms (2% THD at 1kHz) Frequency response: –3dB at 100kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.05% (1W) Input impedance: 10k ohms Gain: 14dB Input sensitivity: 0.57V (1W); 2.53V (max output) Damping factor: 100 Class A envelope: 50W peak at 4 ohms Noise: 100µV unweighted, 20Hz–20kHz Dimensions: 17" x 5.5" x 15" Blue Moon Award from 6 Moons: "FirstWatt genetics mean more than a decade of intelligent experiments into maximizing simple circuits for best sonics. Within this catalogue, it's not excessive to perhaps call his latest Nelson's best yet." (https://6moons.com/audioreviews2/firstwatt2/12.html) Dick Olsher preferred it over the F3, commenting : "Simply put: one of the best low-power amps money can buy." (https://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/first-watt-f7-stereo-power-amplifier/?page=2) etc. Photos:
  8. Item: Holo Audio Spring DAC - Kitsune tuned edition Level 3 DAC (top level) Location: Titzroy North or CBD, Melbourne Price: $2k (over $4k new) Item Condition: mint (see below) Reason for selling: too many DACs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This has been my primary DAC and has impressed many visitors at GTGs and the like. I am the original owner and paid US$2700 + shipping = > $4,000, not including GST and duty. The DAC is in mint condition, subject to the following: when I received the DAC from Kitsune, I noticed a tiny defect in the top plate and was sent a replacement top plate, which remains unopened in its original packaging. When I removed the DAC today to take photos, it seems I have put some small scratches in the rear left corner of the top plate. However, since I am providing a brand new top plate, I am still describing the condition as mint. I propose to allow the new owner to install the new top plate, but if you would prefer me to do it for you, then I will be happy to do so. This DAC has received rave and needs little introduction. AFAIK, it is still (Stereophile reviewer and well known audiophile) Herb Reichart's reference DAC. Oh, I will have the original box, but it will be under my house, which is a pain to get to. I probably cannot get it until next weekend (if you care). Photos:
  9. Hi, i just tried to PM you, but it says you "cannot receive messages". Is your inbox full? If so, please make some space. - r.

Item: Final Audio Sonorous VI Headphones with Brand New ear pads and upgraded replacement Shure 1840 Alcantara pads Location: Victoria: Fitzroy North or Melbourne CBD Price: $500 ($840 retail) (+ say $20 shipping if applicable) Item Condition: used Reason for selling: don't use them Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am the second owner, but I have never used them - well, I probably used them for, say 30 minutes when I first bought them, but I'm not a headphone guy so they have just been sitting in a cupboard.
