  1. @Luc apologies just an occasional visitor here these days. I missed the Alfa Mist gig unfortunately I was away. It was actually the SNAer formally know as Hensa that put me onto Alfa Mist. A great artist to kick off this thread. The last gig I saw was Ezra Collective at Oxford Art Factory with @Bell Ringer I’d certainly recommend them. https://youtu.be/C7w42A8h16c
  2. And now sold and heading to a music lover. Thanks for the interest.
  3. Yes I still have the Eclipse TD712 MKII. That’s eight years of pumping out tunes now. I still love them. Every time I upgrade the system they are up to the task. No intention to change them at the moment. Remarkable speakers.
  4. Correct Mikey. I left the stock Electro Harmonic 6922s in place for at least 7 years. Only changed them because I had some Golden Dragon sitting around.
  5. Victor sold them to a mate of mine who still has them. Exceptional speakers. If I didn’t have small room syndrome like the OP I’d be very keen. Well worth an audition if interested in some high end speakers.
  6. Thanks James. It’s been too long mate. I was tempted to name some of those brands that went home with their tail between their legs. As you can imagine it took an amazing amp to move this on. I’m still flying the integrated amp flag though. I’m sure someone will be very happy with this though.
  7. Item: Pathos Logos Amplifier Location: Paddington 2021 Price: $2400 $100 donation on sale to SNA. Sharply priced so low ballers and suspected flippers will be ignored. Item Condition: Very good but see note below re volume control Reason for selling: A Greek beast now sitting on the rack, Ypsilon Phaethon, replacing the Italian beauty. Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, Bank transfer Extra Info: This has got to be one of the sexiest amps available. A hybrid amp, with valve pre and solid state power putting out 110W @ 8Ohms and 220W @ 4Ohms. I have owned this amp from new, imported from the UK when I moved back to Sydney 8 years ago. It’s never given me an ounce of trouble. Drives my 84db TD712 MKII with ease. Note. There is some tarnishing of the volume knob which you can see in the photos. Looks worse in them than when sitting on the rack doing its thing. Note this is version one of this amp, not the second version with inbuilt dac option. Happy to demo. Interstate SANers feel free to send someone on your behalf. Comes with remote and original double boxing so I am happy to ship at buyers expense. I will supply with basic power cable as I have been using shunyata and will be keeping it. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  9. Item: WAVAC MD300B Amplifier plus extra 300B's Location: Paddington, Sydney Price: $2600. $100 donation to SNA. Sharply priced so low ballers and suspected flippers will be ignored. Item Condition: Amp - Excellent. See note below re spare tubes. Reason for selling: Taking up room in the attic Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: A stunning amplifier both in looks and sound. I bought this from Victor 5 years ago and it probably hasn't had 100 hours on it since. I just fell in love with the Wavac sound -- I subsequently bought a Wavac LCR-X2 phono for my main rig. Can be used without a preamp, so a bargain to enter the world of Wavac and 300B tubes. Currently running with Golden Dragon 300B Super. I will also include a pair of Full Music 300B/n. PLUS a pair of Elrog ER300B which I purchased new. About 3 years ago when using the Elrogs the amp let out a nasty sound from one speaker. No magic smoke. I instantly disconnected and put back in the Golden Dragons. I have never had the Elrogs checked but as most know the early ones were notorious for failing. I suspect one of them is cactus but buyer is welcome to take them and have them checked. I have run this amp at a GTG using my Eclipse TD712 MKII speakers. These are 84db and therefore you would expect with the Wavac they should sound terrible. A number at the GTG preferred the sound over my 110W Pathos Logos. Happy to demo either with my Eclipse speakers, some much more efficient Blumensteins, or BYO. Original packaging included. Original add from Victor which has more info.

  10. I have the Ortofon SPU Classic version of this SUT and its excellent. Highly recommended. However, there are two versions, one primarily for the SPU and one for the 103R. Yes, there are other carts that will work perfectly with each version. In order to avoid confusion perhaps the seller should call out which version it is.
  11. Telos are the local distributors. http://www.telosaudiodistributors.com/brands/schick-tonearms/ I have one on a 301 with a SPU that I could be persuaded to part with.
  12. Oh no. Not the Leben mate. Good luck with your move and the sale (of the AN)
  13. It seems like the Sydney crew performed well. I’m certainly very envious reading this thread and kicking myself I didn’t make the effort to get down there. Looking forward to the Sydney show. We will no doubt sort out some suitable entertainment. Might have to fly @evil c up here to coordinate activities. He has set the bar high. [mention=117697]luc[/mention] Happy to put you up at chez viognier.
  14. I’ve given the Sydney blow ins strict instructions on appropriate behaviour south of the border. They have also been advised to align themselves with the fisherman from the north of the state and avoid those southerners with their Pink Floyd and Eagles trash.
