  1. Item: VTL Reference DAC 20-Bit Ultra-analog. Location: Geelong, Vic. Price: $2200. Item Condition: Great. Reason for selling: Downsizing! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: So, my VTL Reference DAC is up for sale! I will start this ad by saying that I am indeed, first and foremost, an analog man. It is the medium that I use as my reference and derive the most amount of enjoyment from. That said, a digital system for me needs to stand up pretty convincingly against analog reproduction and this unit does it so considerably well (not many can say that I can tell you!) that it has become a dear favourite of mine. This unit was VTL’s answer to the world’s most expensive and reveered DAC of the time (1990) the STAX DAC-X1T. Both the STAX and the VTL sported by UltraAnalog UA20400 DAC chip. Said to have cost 10-20 times more than the Philips TDA1541 Crown chips to make! The STAX having a price tag of USD$14000 and the VTL USD$7000. Both units were heavily reviewed at their time of release and both praised and touted as being “world reference” quality. With a reviewer from Stereophile stating for sheer performance vs. value that his preference were for VTL’s product. Here is the link; https://www.stereophile.com/digitalprocessors/vtl_reference_da_processor/index.html The VTL’s sound can be best described (if you haven’t read the stereophile article) as detailed, accurate, full and natural bottom end, with an enveloping sound, whilst achieving engagement reminiscent of analog. The unit is in great condition and comes with its original owners manual. A 240V unit and all four 12AT7’s are near new and come with their original PSVane boxes. An exact unit just sold in France for €2400 making this great value and no risk of damage during transit. More than happy to audition if need be. I do on occasion make my way up to Melbourne so a drop off may be possible but please register this interest with me over PM FINAL PRICE DROP! I will happily keep this if it doesn't sell. Pictures:
  2. Hi. Sorry for the late response. Been a little under the weather of late. Yes, they come with their original grill’s with original material. The speakers are located 30 mins from me, the way the owner has them set up and his lack of tech savvy I cannot supply additional pictures. If you are genuinely interested I can organise a time to get some but please let me know.
  3. Right on LPG! They are using the 2426 drivers.
  4. Item: McIntosh MC75 Monoblock Valve Amplifiers. Location: Geelong, Vic. Price: $8000 Item Condition: NEW. Never used (display only!). Reason for selling: Downsizing. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash. Extra Info: Hi guys, For sale here is a pair of Legendary McIntosh MC75 valve monoblocks. . I am advertising these for a dear friend of mine. So, if you have any questions, please send me a PM and if I cannot answer them myself I will liaise and get back to you. This pair of Mac mono amplifiers are brand new and never used. That’s right... they have never even been plugged in! Needless to say, they are cosmetically perfect, come with their original boxes and reading material. This is one of three pairs that the owner has collected and has decided to part with. This is a rare chance to get your hands on a brand new pair of these Mac 75’s while avoiding the hefty RRP! Just to clarify, the Amplifier’s were purchased new approx. 3 years ago and were Australian delivery models. Not grey imports! Pick up can be arranged from St. Leonard’s (Bellarine Peninsula) or Newtown (Central Geelong). Pictures:
  5. Item: JBL 4430 Speakers. Location: Geelong, Vic. Price: $5500 Item Condition: Excllent. Like new! Reason for selling: Downsizing. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash. Extra Info: Hi guys, For sale here is a pair of JBL 4430 speakers. I am advertising these for a dear friend of mine. So, if you have any questions, please send me a PM and if I cannot answer them myself I will liaise and get back to you. As you can see by the pictures these particular speakers are not in their original, studio looking cabinets. These particular cabinets were built by John Woodhead at Aranmar at great expense to the owner. The cabinets are of the same internal size/volume as the original cabinets and are very well built and inert and were designed to look like and have the appeal of fine furniture. The crossovers use high quality components and were built and tuned by well known and late Jimmy V. During this build the woofers had brand new original JBL recone kits installed and installed by the late Bill Dutt. And the horn drivers had new replacement diaphragm’s also. (Please note: the slot tweeters are not available at the time.) This is a great chance to buy what is practically a brand new pair of these legendary JBL’s! Pick up can be arranged from St. Leonard’s (Bellarine Peninsula) or Newtown (Central Geelong). Pictures:
  6. Item: Klipsch Cornwall Speakers. Location: Geelong, Vic. Price: $2900 Item Condition: Excellent. Reason for selling: Downsizing. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash. Extra Info: Hi guys, For sale here is a pair of Klipsch Cornwall speakers. I am advertising these for a dear friend of mine. So, if you have any questions, please send me a PM and if I cannot answer them myself I will liaise and get back to you. These particular speakers are in fantastic condition and were purchased from their original owner some 3 odd years ago. Upon purchase they were both inspected professionally and both woofers received new pigtails/wiring. So, working perfectly fine. I can attest as I have heard them over many, many hours and driven with an array of different gear. They are great buying for anyone looking for a pair of efficient speakers and looking to utilise a low powered tube or solid state amplifier. Bass is controlled and musical, midrange/vocals have real depth and presence, and the treble has great detail! They also represent excellent value when you consider that the exact current model RRP is $12990. That’s a $10K saving! Pick up can be arranged from St. Leonard’s (Bellarine Peninsula) or Newtown (Central Geelong). Pictures:
  7. Hi. I’d like to grab Talk Talk - Colour of Spring if you’re happy to post.
  8. So, this happened last night... Very, very good amps!
  9. Item: VTL Reference UltraAnalog 20 bit DAC Location: Geelong, Vic. Price: ($3000) Now $2500! Item Condition: Excellent (1990) condition. Reason for selling: Rationalising. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: So, my VTL Reference DAC is up for sale. It is with a heavy heart that I put this up for sale but as my other listing states, a future purchase (of a bucket list item!) dictates that I free up some funds. I will start this ad by saying that I am indeed, first and foremost, an analog man. It is the medium that I use as my reference and derive the most amount of enjoyment from. That said, a digital system for me needs to stand up pretty convincingly against analog reproduction and this unit does it so considerably well (not many can say that I can tell you!) that it has become a dear favourite of mine.

An exact unit just sold in France for €2400 making this great value and no risk of damage during transit. As you can see, I have relisted this time with more detailed pictures. More than happy to audition if need be. I do on occasion make my way up to Melbourne so a drop off may be possible but please register this interest with me over PM Pictures:
  10. Item: B&W DM604 S2 Floorstand Speakers. Location: Geelong, Vic. Price: $800 firm. Item Condition: Excellent. Reason for selling: Rationalising. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: My pair of B&W DM604 S2’s are up for sale. It’s with great reluctance that I put these up for sale but a future purchase dictates that I must free up some funds. They are in perfect working order and in excellent cosmetic condition. Black vaneer and grills are free of damage and as you can see by the pictures the port bungs are present. Their sound can be best described as being smooth, detailed & engaging. I have run them with a myriad of valves amps over my time with great results as they are surprisingly efficient given their heritage and size! Here’s a link from B&W themselves; http://bwgroupsupport.com/downloads/specsheets/bw/DM604 S2 InfoSheet.pdf More than happy to audition if need be.
