  1. Further information: Listening Update: I had the chance to audition this amp on a pair of Dynaudio Confidence floorstanders which used ARC Ref 150 power and and Ref 6 pre. The Elekit was not out of place at all. The Elekit had great bloom and a better beat than the ARC pair although was less refined. The speakers aren't super efficient but the Elekit didn't need to turn up the volume knob very much to still fill the room. Bass remained well controlled and impactful. Ad Update: I withdrew this previously as I was unsure if I wanted to to run 300B amps in both set ups, ho
  2. Further information: The music lovers speakers, Spendors are all about tone. To allow them to continue to make beautiful music I have reduced the price yet again to encourage a buyer to take a punt! Due to a combination of COVID boredom, FOMO and attempts to get my new listening space (aka hifi hell) to sound decent I have found myself with an excessive amount of gear and need to make some space. I'm also taking a huge swerve across to single full range drivers and SET amps. As a poor decision maker I'm not able to decide what goes so I am leaving it to the market to d
  3. Further information: I acquired this amp as part of my pursuit to find the best match for a pair of Yamaha NS1000m I was getting restored and after being incredibly impressed by a smaller Elekit 8200 and the 300B powered 8600S. I already had them connected to a Yamaha B2 but after hearing that powerful push pull tubes were even better I just had to give it a try. The result? Hands down the best pairing to date. What were the other contenders? A Quad 909, too reserved but it did tame the excesses of treble which could sometimes be present. A Marantz KI Pearl Lite, fun but not quite
  4. Big Yamaha integrated amps are wonderful. They have power but they also are delicate and refined. Incredibly pretty too!

  6. Further information: Beautiful made in Japan receiver. The receiver is powerful and clean sounding, plenty of connections and comes with a remote. Has ability to power more than one set and also multizone. Not too much information available on the receiver but it replaced the Pioneer VSX-9900S as I understand and is of similar spec. Happy to demo for locals and can pack for interstate. Its cheap. Photos:
  7. Further information: I have reduced this price and now the lucky new owner gets a full recap fully paid by me! I'd rather take a hit but keep it within SNA than scumtree it! I recently purchased this from here (https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/340342-sold-fs-yamaha-ca-2000-integrated-amplifier/) and have had it professionally recapped since. Its a beaut and sounds great. It might be very powerful but its no simple brute. The sound is surprisingly delicate and refined. Due to room considerations though I am switching to full range speakers and SET amps so this is n
  8. Further information: Withdrawn. Sorry. I have reduced the price to encourage someone to let this amp sing regularly like it should and not reside in the cupboard as a back up. Having said that, it is a hell of a back up, far quieter than the AS power amp. I have had some queries about the Lundhal upgrade and having not heard the upgrade can't comment. I have included a review from Wall of Sound though which covers both standard and upgraded transformers. Verdict? Better but not essential. The current pricing would allow for this upgrade and comfortably come below a new

  10. I've tried a few speakers with 300b amps and you're room is reasonably similar in size. Personally I'm not a particularly loud listener so I've not had to turn mine up very much. The speakers I've tried vary from mid eighties to mid nineties in sensitivity. Spendors SP1 and SA1 have sounded fantastic, beautiful and lush. Yamaha ns1000 were ok but sounded better on push pull. They lost a bit of impact. Wharfedale Linton's were a reasonably harder load dropping below 4 ohm in places but still worked well. I think of you aren't needing huge volumes then your sensitivity will be
  11. That looks great, love the ceiling rafters.
