  1. Item: Pair of rare vintage 6C33C winged C triodes Location: Melbourne 3763 Price: $70 (plus postage) Item Condition: excellent near new old stock Reason for selling: surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchesed these NOS a few years ago as a second spare set. Have only been used for about 3-4 hours to test. Both dated 1970. Sound is significantly better than later 1980s OTKs. Had no intention of ever selling my amp but after moving house found I needed more power so the amp has gone and these are now surplus. Pictures:
  2. Item: Vintage Kenrad JAN-CKR 6SN7 GT / VT231 rare black glass Location: Melbourne (Kinglake) Price: $70 Item Condition: good working condition with no issues Reason for selling: Sold the valve amp Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased as unused, NOS mid 2015 and was used very sparingly for 2 years in an Almarro 318B which was only used on rare occasions.. Will have about 180-200 hours use. Absolutely glorious sounding valve and very rare now. Pictures:
  3. Item: Denon Au - 340 step up transformer Location: Melbourne VIC Price: $550 Item Condition: Good (has some minor wear marks and has been modified) DISCLAIMER: This is a passive unit that has no mains electrical connection and contains no dangerous electrical currents Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Excellent vintage transformer suitable for most moving coil cartridges with both 40ohm and 3ohm windings. This unit has been re-wired with (presumably) higher quality hook-up wire and all 5 switches have been removed so that it now has 3ohm & 40ohm stereo input pairs instead of switchable inputs for two turntables. This was a very common mod that takes this great tranny to the next level. It has also had new quality RCA jacks fitted to the 40ohm inputs and outputs. No longer required after purchase of Accuphase integrated with very good mc stage - and now using mm cartridge anyway. Pictures:
  4. Now sold, thanks for all your supporting posts.
  5. Item: Almarro A318B 18Watt single ended triode Location: Kinglake Vic 3763 Price: sold Item Condition: Used, excellent condition Reason for selling: No longer using Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Only Extra Info: This is a beautiful looking and sounding amp that has many excellent reviews. Very powerful for a SET amp and will drive many more speakers than most lower powered SETs. I believe these are no longer available and overseas prices have been going up since production stopped. Output tubes are a pair of Russian 6C33B triodes and uses 6H8C/6SN7 input and 6H9C/6SL7 driver tubes. The whole amp is point-to-point wired with no circuit boards. I Am the original owner and it was purchased new from Audiophile in Fitzroy in late 2012. Amp Has very low hours and is in excellent condition both cosmetically and in operation. It has a pair of very low hour NOS 1970 dated winged-C 6C33Cs (less than 10 hours so still breaking in). These are widely considered the holy grail of 6C33C tubes and are almost unobtainable now and therefore quite valuable. Input tube is original Russian 6H9C which is as new (I used a NOS 6SL7 which is not included) Driver is an equally low hour Tungsol 6SN7. Original English owners manual from Audiophile included but no original packaging. Selling because I just don't have the listening time to enjoy this any more. Pictures:
  6. Item: Denon DL-103r Location: Kinglake Vic Price: $200 Item Condition: used Reason for selling: no longer needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought this a couple of years ago from 2juki ebay store in Hong Kong to see what all the hype was about, have played about 10 sides with it then put my Denon S1 back on and the 103 has been in the drawer since. My arm, an Audiomods, is probably not ideal for the 103. It's in mint condition. Pictures:
  7. The short answer is yes as it has both 8 & 4ohm taps, but in reality it depends on your room, music type, and expectations. Although the Almarro punches way above it's weight it is still a SET at 18 wpc so running it into fairly low sensitivity speakers (if they are in fact 87ohm) it will be more suited to acoustic or lighter 'weight' music in a smaller room than heavy rock/electronica at high volume in a large room. You may be very surprised at what it is capable of, if your in Melbourne your more than welcome to bring your speakers and have a good listen. Cheers
  8. Item: Almarro A318B 18Watt single ended triode Location: Kinglake Vic 3763 Price: withdrawn Item Condition: Used, excellent condition, just fully serviced by dealer Reason for selling: A moment of madness! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Only Extra Info: This is a beautiful looking and sounding amp that has many excellent reviews. Very powerful for a SET amp and will drive many more speakers than most lower powered SETs. Output tubes are a pair of Russian 6C33B and uses 6H8C/6SN7 input and 6H9C/6SL7 driver tubes.

Amp Has very low hours and has just been fully serviced by the dealer. It currently has a very low hour set of NOS 1970 dated winged-C 6C33Cs (less than 10 hours so still breaking in). These are the holy grail for these tubes and are almost unobtainable now. The original OTK input and driver tubes will be included and I will also include a NOS 1940s Kenrad JAN VT-231/6SN7-GT black glass which has about 100 hours on it and a Tung-sol 6sl7 (10 hours). Will negotiate a little if you don't want the extra tubes. Selling because I just don't have the listening time to enjoy this any more. H Pictures:
  9. Item: Denon DL-S1 MC Cartridge Location: Croydon North, Vic Price: $650 $550 (no further reduction) Item Condition: VGC, approx 75-80 hrs Reason for selling: No further use Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Denon's flagship cartridge, very low output but exceptional sounding. Has only been used for max 80 hrs and only on Okki-Nokki wet vacuum cleaned records that are carbon fibre brushed before playing. Stylus always cleaned with Onzow Zerodust. Complete with original packaging, mounting hardware and documentation. Happy to demo if your in Melbourne. DENON DL-S1 PHONO CARTRIDGE The Denon DL-S1 moving coil phono cartridge is Denon's top of the line phono cartridge. It is designed and crafted to provide the pinnacle of performance, a bold statement that should not be taken lightly given Denon's track record of producing moving coil phono cartridges that have withstood the test of time and penchant for understating the engineering genius of their designs. The Denon DL-S1 cartridge offers musical accuracy that is exemplary, breathtaking and addictive. It is a standard by which other pinnacle and topflight cartridges will be compared to. If you are thinking of spending up to 100 times the cost of the Denon DL-S1 phono cartridge, it may be wise to reconsider. Musical satisfaction could be less expensive than you imagine. The special features and technical specifications enumerated below offer a thoughtful glimpse of its capabilities. DENON DL-S1 Features 1. Newly developed ultra fine wire combining gold and 6N copper. A newly developed ultra fine wire combining pure gold and 6N copper is used in the voltage generating coil. By combining the excellent qualities of gold and copper, the Denon DL-S1 is thus able to deliver uncompromisable and unadorned pure and clean analog sound quality. Pure music - that's what you get with the Denon DL-S1 MC phono cartridge. 2. Stable, analog reproduction via superb tracing capability. The use of a tapered cantilever, a non-magnetic coil bobbin, and a 0.07 mm micro stylus chip reduced the effective mass of its vibration system, lowered its mechanical impedance, and superbly improved its ability to trace the grooves in the record. 3. Elimination of unwanted vibrations with carefully selected materials. A ceramic frame and a highly rigid aluminum body to eliminate unwanted vibrations within the cartridge. 4. Denon's unique 2-way dumping system. The unique Denon two-way dumping system has been employed to suppress the tonal variations due to changes in room temperature and at the same time to obtain level frequency characteristics. Denon DL-S1 Phono Cartridge Specifications - Type: Moving coil - Output voltage: 0.15mV - Frequency response: 20Hz-70kHz - Recommended load impedance: Over 100 ohms - Channel balance @ 1kHz: < 1db - Channel separation @ 1kHz: > 28dB - Stylus tip: 0.07 x 0.07 mm square solid diamond - Compliance: 14 x 10-6 cm/dyne - Recommended tracking force: (1.3g +/- 0.2g) - Color: Black/Gold - Weight: 7 g Pictures: Attached

The sound is absolutely superb, very well balanced from top to bottom with unbelievable resolution. Will need a highly resolving system to do it justice with a good quality step-up trannie and/or phono stage. This is a very low output cartridge at 0.15uV. I have had excellent results with the Denon AU-340 into a Musical Surroundings Nova Phenomena. New price is a little difficult to establish as they are not readily available. I paid $895US (about $1,200 AU today. Has only been played on quality records cleaned on an Oki Noki RCM. Original packaging and documentation included. Happy to demo if you are in the area.
