  5. Yes indeed, a very astute observation and surprised you picked it up. It's an AP Virgo also in ebony but not quite as nice without the 11 coats of lacquer but still good in a more subdued way.
  6. Hi all, thanks for the amazing response. Just responding to PMs now but seem to have a lot of interest
  7. Item: Monitor Audio Gold GX 50 + Premium Gloss Ebony Finish + original MA matching stands Location: North Sydney (pickup preferred) Price: $900 Item Condition: Excellent / See pictures Reason for selling: Freeing up some cash Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Seriously in 2 minds about selling but here goes. Stunning 11 layers of hand lacquer on the premium ebony wood finish which costs extra $$ and looks amazing; magnetic grilles (not shown as it looks so much better without). These monitor speakers appeal to those after transparency and speed. They can do surprising bass (55Hz – 60kHz frequency response) although they can not defy the laws of physics so not going to rock the earth. Very impressive C-Cam ribbon tweeter is extended, neutral and transparent as you'd expect and MA did a good job on the mid-range integration. The sound feels very fast and transparent and overall the cabinets are knuckle wrap solid. These are quality speakers. Bi-wireable as well. Google up the reviews. http://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/monitor-audio-gold-gx50 Pictures:

  9. What an amazing package. Out of interest what were your favourite set of power tubes given you've got some cream of the crop choices there?

  12. Item: IsoTek Elite 1.5m Powercord US Plugs Location: North Sydney Price: $250 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: No longer needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Hubbel US Plugs with IsoTek IEC. Elite is middle of the range in between IsoTek's Premier and Optimum. Previous generation to current EVO3. The IsoTek Elite mains cables provide a solution without sacrifice to the audio signal. Constructed from three cores of annealed Oxygen Free Copper conductors within a highly flexible PVC inner sheath and surrounded by a braided screen, this screen forms an active RF shield around the inner cores. The effect is a reduction in the background mush within the system, producing a more open airy sound with a greater sense of high frequency detail. Rated at 16A makes this cable ideal for all components especially power amplifiers, power supplies and of course mains conditioning devices. The Elite is also fitted with an IsoTek high quality IEC connector. Pictures:
  13. Hi all, would prefer a local (Sydney) buyer if possible as I don't have a box. Any Sydneysiders interested?
  14. Item: Cosmetically modified Copland CSA 8 Integrated Amp Location: North Sydney prefer pickup Price: $450 Item Condition: Used (Good) Reason for selling: Project for second system but never got to a second system Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a pet project - cosmetic rebuild COPLAND CSA 8 which is the solid state simplified version of the CSA 14. As you can see cosmetics are different with a mirror black gloss face plate (metallic sapphire BMW black to be precise) at a cost of $150, knobs are an elegant large aluminum finish great feel to it and not cheap, Replaced binding posts with new quality ones (not the crappy ones), LED light is light blue. Internals are the same. Did not change the caps or anything so room to improve the sound for any budding DIY. Replaced feet with audiophile points from the Germany made some a metallic composite (can't remember the brand). Looks, feels and sounds solid; this is not a light weight unit in looks or sound and has great authority and guts to it; sounds more powerful than its 60w rating. So this unit has NO remote and only 3xRCA inputs as per original. Personally don't find this a big deal but couch potatoes might not be happy. Also major caveat and need to declare that the power switch is not working so the unit turns on by default when you plug it in. I just switch it off at the wall socket. You can repair this if you like. Other switches work fine (volume, input select) and course no sonic issues. Kept this so long as it does sound good and looks the business after the visual mods I like it better than the stock look. Pictures:
