  1. Item: RCA 2a3 pair Location: Melbourne Price: $250 plus postage/ppal fees Item Condition: ANOS Reason for selling: $$$ Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Really nice pair of black plate RCA 2A3's. Matching H6 date codes. I've put maybe 20-30 hours on these in a SET amp which is a backup I use for tunes when working on my main amps. Best sounding 2a3's I've heard in that amp but I just don't use it and can make do with other tubes if I need to use it. Pictures:

    Advice: Next steps for vinyl upgrade ?

    No problem G That guide was written in 2002 and I think there are some better parts available today (copper foil caps, 1200v schottky diodes, ultra low noise/tcr resistors etc) but the basics are there. Definitely worth researching.

    Advice: Next steps for vinyl upgrade ?

    There is a lot of information online about modding the EAR 834p and I think this guide by Thorsten Loesch is a very good place to start... https://www.audioasylum.com/messages/vinyl/108318/the-very-much-non-definitive-ear-834p-modification-guide . If you generally like the 834p then you can unlock a lot of potential for very reasonable $$$ going down this path. Well worth a read
  4. "We use JJ 300B and Russian New old stock 6H23N as a driver and input tubes." Zooming in on the photos they do look a lot like 6n23p tubes which means 6922 would be possible. Maybe @khoihuyen can confirm.

    SOLD: FS: GEC 5U4g/U52 rectifier tube

    They do tend to go for quite a bit more than this but I bought it for this price so just spreading the love.
  6. Item: FS: Cerious Technologies Graphene Extreme Speaker Cables 6ft 1.88m Location: 3038 Price: $400 plus postage/PP fees Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Bills Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought these cables on the forum last year. Rhodium plated banana's at the amp end and gold plated spades at the speakers. Still have the plastic on the labels aside from one which I photographed. I'll find something to put on it. These are REALLY nice cables. I'm certain they weren't close to run in when I got them as they improved out of sight over time. It's worth checking out what goes into these cables. Quite a construction. I'd been reading up on them before they came up for sale and jumped when I saw them. The speaker cables are the most popular and well reviewed cable in their range and hard to beat for the money. A new set this length would be close to $800 plus postage,gst etc. I don't want to sell these at all but such is life. I'll buy the next model up down the track. http://www.cerioustechnologies.com/ Pictures:
  7. Item: GEC 5U4g/U52 rectifier tube Location: 3038 Price: $250 plus postage/paypal fees Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: $$$ Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased here in the classifieds last year and only fired up for two or three evenings since I've had it. It was tested as full strength when I picked it up. It has a slightly loose base which was how I got her. Really great tube but I have others and some unexpected expenses have popped up to ruin my day. Pictures:
  8. Tube everything for me Just counted 12 different tube types totalling 20 tubes from the turntable to the speakers and it sounds just like I like it
