  1. Item: Musical Surroundings Phonomena II+ Phono Stage MM/MC - Black Location: Sydney Price: $540.00 + postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR – don’t need four phono stages Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased new by me in January 2016. Comes with all original packaging and instructions. This is an astonishingly capable phono stage that easily outperformed the inbuilt phono stage in my, now departed, $8000.00 Luxman L-507uX integrated amplifier. I kid you not! This is a highly configurable phono stage with dip switches on the back of the unit for easy changes. This phono stage has everything the Luxman doesn’t – detail, dynamics and enough gain to drive LOMC cartridges. This can now be upgraded by adding the new Musical Surroundings Linear Charging Power Supply as an option. One tiny scratch on the edge of the top plate where it meets the front panel – about 2-3 millimeters. I’ve had it running with the following carts and it did so with consummate ease: Audio Technica AT-OC9ML/II Moving Coil Cartridge; Benz Micro Ace SL Cartridge Hana SL MC Cartridge
  2. Item: IsoAcoustics Gaia III Isolation Footers 2 Packs of four Location: Sydney Price: $450.00 plus delivery Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased new by me in December 2017. Used these on my Legend Kantu speakers. They are in excellent condition and have all the original inclusions - screws, little spanner, boxes. Pictures:

    Legend Acoustics Kurre 9 - Review

    I’d definitely recommend that you do take the time to listen to the Kurre. It’s neutrality and tonal balance is exemplary with spot on imaging and depth of scale to the music. A delight to listen to for hours on end. Partner it well with a suitable amplifier that provides decent current to extract the best from them.
  6. Item: Cymer Dual Mono Ultra Linear Valve Amp (designed and made by Elson Silva) Location: Sydney Price: $1550 plus delivery. FIRM Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR & too many amplifiers Payment Method: Pickup or delivery Valves: 6072A, 12AT7, EL34 Weight: 10.0 kg Dimensions: 420(w)x390(d)x75(h) Extra Info: $1500 for Sydney pick up! Beautifully made and designed by one of Australia's premier valve amplifier designers - Elson Silva. Purchased secondhand from Dr Rod Crawford in April 2018 and only used sparingly by me since (not used for a while now and safely tucked away). I understand it is approx. 5 years old and Rod told me that he didn’t really use it much in that time, so plenty of life in the valves. Rod requested that a passive volume control be installed, however, as it was designed as a power amplifier I asked Elson to convert it back to that. The below modifications were completed. This is a beautifully designed valve power amplifier with liquid smooth performance. I had it powering my Legend Kurre 9 bookshelf speakers and it played them beautifully. With these speakers connected, the Cymer provides approximately 45 to 47 watts RMS and even with the relative inefficiency of the Kurre’s, at 84 dB, it was more than enough to extract wonderful detail and solid bass performance. I should add that this amplifier outperformed a Luxman L507-uX costing $8k! It did so quite easily too. Works beautifully with an ME preamplifier! The speckles on the perspex is just dust. Modifications: 1. Passive volume control removed; 2. New Perspex front panel installed; 3. New higher quality RCA’s installed; 4. Plates above power transformers resprayed in black; 5. Bias adjusted This has had a price reduction of $200 from the previous listing, so that virtually pays for the modifications. Thanks for looking.
  7. Sorry to hear about the hail damage, Cameron. The VPI / Hana combo is excellent as it's just what I bought from Krispy last year. The turntable is astonishingly well built and that arm is to die for. The motor has a lot of torque which spins the aluminium platter up to speed in no time, plus it's so quiet. Hope all goes well for the car hunt. Cheers, muzzagruzz
  8. Payment pending. Thanks to all that commented. cheers, muzzagruzz

    FS: Legend Acoustics Kantu 8i

    Yes, Mani, with the right amplifier these are magnificent. I've powered all my Legend's with ME pre and power as these amps supply huge current that the speakers love. Perfect match.
  11. Item: ME24 Preamplifier - Aluminium Body + Remote Location: Sydney Price: SOLD $1600.00 + postage - Firm Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Change of plans - funds required to fund two way speaker Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Excellent condition, very late model all aluminium bodied ME24 preamplifier with remote control. This does not have the latest cap upgrade but is a perfect candidate for this to be completed and there is plenty of info on SNA regarding the upgrade and it is well worth it. I can vouch for the upgrade as my ME25 has had it done. This is a line stage preamplifier only, no phono stage. The tape toggle switch is a little sticky but the preamp works brilliantly as I've tested it in my system. Pictures:
