  1. Further information: Unison Research Unico is an 80-watt integrated with remote and 12AU7 triode-based twin-tube input & MOSFET output stage. It has a sandblasted natural aluminum fascia with wooden logo insert. Chunky contoured knobs. Understated silver-gray silk screening. Wooden handset. Four inputs, no phono stage one tape loop and dual-pair speaker terminals. Output power: >80W RMS on 8Ω. Output stage: Dynamic A Class POWER MOSFET Specifications: Unison Research Review: 6moons Photos:
  2. Further information: Nanotec Systems speaker cable with gold & silver collodial liquid which is soaked in PC-Triple C [Pure Copper-Continuous Crystal Construction] cable with directional Furutech Rhodium plated spades @ 2.5M Specfications: Nanotec SP 308SY Photos:
  3. Further information: RRP $14,000. Still under warranty - purchased from Carlton Audio Visual in July 2020. The flagship model in the twenty5 series is also the most capable. The mid-range dome driver makes it the most revealing while the substantial bass driver coupled to an extended 3.3m ATL produces tangible bass that brings music to life. As per the photos, minor cosmetic marks @ the bottom corner of one speaker & a crease in the mid-range driver of the same speaker. Includes original PMC boxes & manual. Specifications: PMC Twenty5.26 Reviews: hi>fi + & the ear
  4. Am biased (no pun intended), but great speakers & front porting is great if rear space is tight behind the speaker...GLWTS & have a great Xmas & New Year...
  5. Magnetic tape storage has been undergoing a renaissance in recent years, according to Mark Lantz, manager of CloudFPGA and tape technologies at IBM Zurich. This resurgence, Lantz argues, has been driven by the convergence of two trends: exponential data growth and a simultaneous slowing down of areal density in hard-disk drives (HDD). IBM scientists showed off a 29-fold increase in the storage capability of its current data-tape cartridge, from 20 terabytes (TB) to 580 TB. That’s roughly 32-times the capacity of LTO-Ultrium (Linear Tape-Open, version 9), the latest industry-standard in magneti

  7. Further information: The Musette is in a silver finish. Metrum are a proponent of R2R, hence devout dislikers of Delta-Sigma conversion. They've relied on industrial chips from outside hifi to need serious glue-logic coding before they interface with audio signal. With up to 384kHz acceptance, noise better than -144dB relative to 2Vrms, channel separation of 100dB across the bandwidth, the Musette is a thoroughly modern DAC. The compact 19 x 6 x 24.5cm WxHxD box weighs 2kg, includes a small 15VA transformer, draws 5 watts in use and offers 1 x Toslink, 2 x coax and 1 x USB with RCA output.
  8. The general consensus is that the VA 101 exhibits high resolution with total control even over larger drivers, with a very low noise floor...& great musicality. I know of members on SNA who use it with speakers with accuton drivers [Gauder Akoustik & Marten], transmission line speakers [PMC Twentyfive.26], & Vivid Audio B1 [with fibre-loaded polymer complex & vented cabinet] Apparently it is “high bias AB amp,” so the first 12 watts per channel are in full Class -A mode." Speakers used in reviews include: Focal Stella Utopia EM, Raidho D1.1, & GamuT Zodiac Re
  9. This is very well regarded & @ your price point...VITUS Audio 101 MkI
  10. H is for Happy Mondays, ...formed in Salford, Manchester (UK) in 1980. The band's original line-up was Shaun Ryder (vocals), his brother Paul Ryder (bass), Mark Day (guitar), Paul Davis (keyboard), and Gary Whelan (drums). Mark "Bez" Berry later joined the band onstage as a dancer/percussionist. Rowetta joined the band as a vocalist in 1990. The group's work bridged the Manchester independent rock music of the 1980s and the emerging UK rave scene, drawing influence from funk, house, and psychedelia to pioneer the Madchester sound. They experienced their commercial peak with the relea
  11. Further information: Selling for a friend in Melbourne. Described as the Maltese Falcon of vintage JBL, these L212s are without the subwoofer, but sound so good they don't really need it, superb tweeters and fantastic midrange, with original grill covers, included is 3m of Belden speaker cable, good condition for age. Pickup in Sunshine, Melbourne OK. Photos:
  12. The S4700 is a floor-standing 3-way high-performance loudspeaker built upon the same professional-grade technology used in the acclaimed Project K2 S9900, one of the most advanced and sophisticated loudspeakers in the world today. At its foundation, the S4700 uses an all-new cast-frame 15-inch woofer (2216Nd) with a powerful dual 3-inch voice coil and neodymium motor structure for outstanding balance with the horn-loaded compression drivers. Mid- and high-frequencies are reproduced by a pair of titanium diaphragm compression drivers and a single-piece, SonoGlass® dual horn assembly.
  13. The amplifiers from Edge Electronic (founded 1987) in the U.S. would fall into this category....consider the NL Reference monoblocks which are Edge Electronics' statement amplifiers. These 800 watt, weigh 440kg mono-blocks are very high voltage, very high current output amplifiers which output 800 Watts per channel @ 8 Ohms; 1600 Watts per channel @ 4 Ohms; 3200 Watts per channel @ 2...did I hear someone mention the Tower of Babel?
