  1. Hi Adrian, sorry for the delay, I've just responded to your PM. Cheers Paul
  2. Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Power Amp Location: Melbourne Price: $2695 Item Condition: Immaculate Reason for selling: Regretful sale to fund another purchase Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought brand new in April 2017, so it's just over 18 months old, the amp was unpacked onto a HiFi shelf in a dedicated music room and hasn't moved since. It's in as new condition and comes complete with all original supplied accessories including the remote, cotton gloves, spare fuses etc, and also the double box. I am selling it with the original Primaluna KT88 and 12AU7 valves, which have probably had less than 30 hours use, and are excellent valves in their own right. This is a second amp in my system, or spare as my wife says, so it's not had a lot of use. I think this amp is truly a giant killer and, I'm my experience, for the money nothing comes close. It responds so well to different types of valves and I particularly love the sound of the Genalex Gold Lion KT77's, but you can also use EL34's, KT120's and KT150's (as well as the supplied KT88's). And if that's not enough fun for you, you can also roll the 12AU7's input valves just as easily. This is due to the clever adaptive bias system the amp which makes 'rolling valves' a simple plug and play process. On top of that the adaptive bias runs valves in a low stress state so they last a lot longer than in some other amps, all this with impacting the sound. The amp has plenty of power, my speaker's sensitivity are 87db, and it drives them really well. You also get a choice of 4, 8 and 16 ohm taps so you can match a wide variety of speakers. The advantage of this particular version of Dialogue is that you only need to buy a quad of power values if you want to play with different types and it makes the exotic NOS valves more attainable. There are many many glowing reviews online, just do a quick search, but to quote one very famous HiFi critic, Art Dudley from Stereophile Magazine, “I tried to find fault with the PrimaLuna DiaLogue Premium. I failed.” Pictures:

  6. Item: Primaluna Dialogue Premium Power Amp Location: Sandringham Price: $2950 Item Condition: Immaculate Reason for selling: Regretful sale due to a vehicle purchase Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, EFT, COD Only Extra Info: I know people always say that it's a regretful sale, but this truely is, I agreed that I would sell some of my 'spare' HiFi to fund the purchase of a vehicle. Anyway, I bought this power amp brand new in April 2017 so it's just over 18 months old. It was unpacked onto a HiFi shelf in a dedicated music room and hasn't moved since.

This is a second amp in my system, or spare as my wife says, so it's not had a lot of use. I think this amp is truely a giant killer and, I'm my experience, for the money nothing comes close. It respond so well to upgrades and I particularly love the Genalex Gold Llion KT77's in it, but you can also use EL34's, KT120's and KT150's (as well as the supplied KT88's). And if that's not enough fun for you, you can also upgrade of the 12AU7's input valves. Due to the clever adaptive bias system the amp uses all this can be done easily and 'rolling valves' is a simple plug and play process. The amp has plenty of power, my speaker's sensitivity is 87db, and it drives them really well. You also get a choice of 4, 8 and 16 ohm taps so you can match a wide variety of speakers.

  7. Thanks for all your interest, the PV1D is now sold.
  8. Hi Just to let you all know there has been a lot of interest in the PV1D, and I have the first person to contact me coming round later today to view. If for some reason they don’t want it then I’ll be in touch with the next on the list Cheers Paul

  10. Item: Bowers and Wilkins PV1D Subwoofer Location: Melbourne Price: $950 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR due to a change of amp. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I've owned this sub from new and it's in excellent condition. It comes complete with all the original accessories plus I've added an Neutrik XLR4 connector to the high level cable which allows you to disconnect the sub without having to unscrew the amp speaker terminals which preserves the cable. Unfortunately I no longer have the original box. If you're reading this I'm sure you know but the PV1D is a very musical sub which can easily be configured to match to a wide variety of speakers. It is beautifully made with an excellent amount of power and a small footprint. Pictures:
  11. The PL’s are truely special amps which really make the fun world of valves accesible. At this price you can’t go wrong. GLWS

    SOLD: FS: Beyerdynamic DT250/80

    I love my DT250's. I've had mine for about 20 years and use them when recording with my electronic drum kit. They are indistuctable, super comfy and never miss a beat (unlike me!). Every part is replaceable but you'll never need to. They are the perfect headphones for studio work with a MUCH better base response than the DT 100's which you'll see in recording studios all over the world. I'd buy them for a spare pair but don't need to as mine are as reliable as the proverbial swiss watch GLWS
  13. I agree about the KT88's. If you want a good compromise with the extended top and bottom of the KT88's and the sweeter mids of the EL34's then try the Gold Lion KT77's, I'm so happy with them
