  1. Item. Kinki Studio EX-M1 integrated Location: Gisborne . Vic Price: $2800. Rrp$3500 Item Condition: As New Reason for selling: going back to valves Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought new from Melbourne distributor a few months ago, but unfortunately my PAP trio 15s spks dont really suit the amp, the spks are keepers for life so the amp has to go. 215 W into 8ohms quality components throughout. Discrete R2R volume control very dynamic amp throws out a huge soundstage, incredibly detailed and smooth sound. bass is a standout with this amp comes with remote and I still have the box Plenty of glowing reviews on the Kinki , it really is as great as the reviewers and forums say. It’s the one of the few Chinese products you can say is truly High End. Reviewers have compared it favourably to many amps 3 or 4 times the price Will drive any spks including Magnepans. https://www.kinki-studio.com/ex-m1#! http://hifiknights.com/reviews/aplifiers/kinki-studio-ex-m1/ https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/kinki-studio-ex-m1 http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews2/kinki/1.html https://forum.audiogon.com/discussions/kinki-studio-ex-m1-200wpc-integrated-amplifier Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. not sure, the driver just had Red Spade on it, my opinion it could be Celestion , the Bass driver was the same, could be a 10" Celestion or Eminance, sounds good whatever is used, xovers had Mundorf caps
  3. Item: Red Spade HE2 loudspeakers Upgraded version Location: Melbourne Price: $1400. RRP$2400 as a kit + labour and materials to build Item Condition: very good Reason for selling: no longer used, too many speakers Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are the upgraded crossover version which added an extra $600 to the standard $1800 pair I built these about 2 years ago, I prepared and painted them at my factory using automotive DuPont 2pack paints and primers. internally they have bitumen lining. the plastic Waveguide and ports were sprayed with automotive plastic primer, so the paint will not be flaking off in the future. The MDF has shrunk unfortunately around the joins slightly, but doesn’t show from a seating position, I hate painting MDF for this reason as joins usually swell and shrink , it’s a porous material. the cover frame for the drivers are magnetic so no lugs or screws , I don’t have any fabric but it’s cheap to buy if desired The Sound is very immediate and lively with these spks, but not in an in your face way, they’re smooth and detailed, the detail from the compression driver is as good as my Trio 15s Beyma ribbon horn driver. Anything percussive, drums, piano etc sound great. Good soundstage with good depth, they are a pretty good all rounder, primarily used for my music I’ve been using them for home theatre the last 12 months to really good effect. Specs 25 to 50 Hz depending on room High sensitivity 94db easy to drive 8 ohm load 1000 H x310 D x 280 W weight 35.5 kg i won’t be posting these , so pick up only. Pictures:
