  1. I have 6 sealed Maxell XLII S 90, a few opened and used once TDK MA 60. I'm in Sydney.
  2. Hi Drew, I've been using one on my Rega RP10 for about a year now and its sounds very good to me. I had it set up by the distributor of Audio Note here in Sydney. I've also heard it on his Audio Note TT2 and it sounded excellent also. I can't say how it compares to the Ortofon 2M Black as I have no experience with it. Let me know if there is anything specific you want to know. Cheers Alan
  3. The amp is provisionally sold.
  4. Thanks Red, It is a great amp especially paired with my Bat pre. I remember taking the Bat to Bill's to hear the amp and he said the synergy was great even better than what he was using at the time. When this goes my larger plinius amp will take its place.
  5. Item: Plinius SA100 MKIII Location: Sydney Price: $2250 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am selling this Plinius SA100 MKIII on behalf of my brother. He acquired this amp from Bill McLeans at the Central Coast around 2000. It has been in storage for the last 7 years since he has had 3 kids and had not had time for music or home theatre. I have inserted into my main system for the last six months and it has not missed a beat. It is in very good condition over all with only two marks I can see on top of the face plate and also one nick on the right handle shown in the pic. I do have the box but prefer local sale at this stage so you can see and hear the amp before its packed up , unless the buyer can organise a courier pick up.

  6. Item: Celestion Kingston Location: Sydney Price: $2350 or ono Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am selling a pair of Celestion Kingston speakers. These were the last great ultra compact monitor speakers from Celestion before they were bought out by KEF and transformed into a home theatre speaker brand. These are sealed design. I bought these speakers from a London dealer in the late 90s after I graduated from university and was shipped to Australia. These were my primary speakers until 2007 when they were stored when I worked overseas. Since then they have been out of their boxes for only a few months at a time to ensure they are still working well. I was keeping them as a second pair of speakers for a second system but I have since decided I will be heading into a headphone system instead. It is ashame to have these stored away. They are in very good condition and there are only a few marks on the alpha crystal cabinets mainly on the edges but they are hard to see as they cabinets are white with grey flakes. The only blemish that can be easily seen is the small paint finish missing around the plug hole for the speaker grills of one of the speakers which you can see on the pics. I do have all the 4 boxes for these (2 for the speakers and 2 for the stands). I also have a spare tweeter and bass driver which I acquired from KEF when I was living in the UK. Pick up preferred since they are heavy and so I can also audition them for you in my main system. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  7. Thank you for all who expressed an interest on my Nak. The deck is now provisionally sold subject to full payment.
  8. The output one is for the MC and the second output is for MM. I used output 1 for the Ortofons and output 2 for the Audio Note IQ3. Cheers
  9. Thanks for your endorsement. I’m only selling the unit because I’ve heavily modified another valve phonostage which I am now using.
  10. Hi all, I have had a few interested in my Nak so for the purpose of transparency, I am responding to all interest as they come in. As I have offered a demo for people in Sydney it may take a few days for me to know if it is sold or not. Thanks for your interest.
  11. Yes, Alex is such a great guy who loves his cassette decks. I read at tapeheads that he now has a mod for the Dragon which takes its sonics even further. I always set aside a few hours at his place as he will always have a new deck which he serviced and do a shoot out.
  12. Item: Nakamichi Dragon Location: Sydney Price: $2,250 Item Condition: Excellent 8/10 Reason for selling: NRL Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This Nakamichi Dragon is a 120v unit from the US. It was purchased in New York when I was living overseas. It was fully serviced in 2014 by Alex of A.N.T Audio in London who is highly regarded by people in the Tapeheads forum. It was given a once over last year by Kimil Electronics and given a clean bill of health. I have made a couple of tapes on it and have inserted it back into the main system. I have decided to let this unit go as I have a CR7 which will be my main deck. I don't have the original box so pick up preferred and so you can see it's condition and that its fully working.

  13. Item: Melos Plus Series Phono Preamplifier Location: Sydney Price: $750 or ono Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved. This Melos phono preamplifier was purchased when I was living in the UK. It is an export 240 volts version. It was used in a second system. It can accommodate both an MM and MC cartridges. It was checked and serviced at Kimil Electronics last year. This phono stage uses 2 6922 valves and I will include spare valves which should keep this unit running for a while. This was used with an Ortofon MC70 and Rohmann so plenty of gain for low output MCs. It was used with an Audio Note IQ3 through its MM outputs with an Rega RP10. It has a separate power supply as seen in the last picture. I don't have the original packing so pick up only at this stage and I can also demo it in my main system. Pictures:
  14. Hi Norm, Great find. Denon are sometimes underrated decks. I have the single deck version of your Denon, DN 790r which I still use even though I have a Nakamichi. What type of tapes you are looking for? I have a few different stacks which you are still sealed. Cheers Al
  15.
