  1. I owned a pair of these with matching CD player.
  2. I owned a pair of these and they are very nice indeed especially at this price GLWTS
  3. Hi. What length is this? I was looking for 3m but this looks like 1.5? Cheers
  4. Item: Electrocompaniet 4.5 Class A preamplifier with remote Location: Adelaide Price: $1200 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Too many preamps including an EC 4.8 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, PayPal with any fees, Bank deposit Extra Info: EC 4.5 remote control preamp class A (EC4½) Single ended operation (gain) 0 dB; Balanced operation (gain) 6 dB Input impedance 50 kOhm; THD single ended (1.5 V output) 10 V RMS Channel separation (1 V output, 1 kHz) > 90 dB; Output impedance 100 Ohm Max. output Single ended 8 V RMS; Max output Balanced 16 V RMS Output noise 400 Hz - 30 kHz input shorted; Single ended: 6 μV; Balanced: 11 μV Power consumption (no load or signal) 15 W Dimensions: Width 483 mm / 19 inches; Depth 240 mm / 9.5 inches; Height 70 mm / 2.8 inches This is a minimalist preamp with only two inputs - one balanced and one RCA selectable by a switch on the front. Typical Electrocompaniet 'tube like' warm sound that works well with a range of power amplifiers. Happy to demo if you are in Adelaide or to pack well and send insured courier for an extra $30 if at a reasonably priced capital or centre interstate. I am an SNA donor as I value the forums. https://www.hifisentralen.no/forumet/hi-fi-generelt/6810-electrocompaniet-preamps-differences.html Photos:
  5. Item: Redgum SG-5500 integrated amplifier with remote Location: Adelaide Price: $320 Item Condition: Good - minor marks and scratchiness on volume pot Reason for selling: Not used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, PayPal with any fees, Bank deposit Extra Info: Redgum SG-5500 Sonofa’ GUM 55W RMS pc 8 Ohms, High current, passive preamp, original good condition remote control. Bought it last year via SNA for $350 to drive my Audio Physic Step speakers (separately listed) which is does very well. Happy to demo if in Adelaide or will pack well for an interstate buyer and courier with insurance for $30 unless you are in some type of a remote area. I donate to SNA. Plenty of additional information at these links: http://www.redgumaudio.com/Brochures/SoaG/SG5500.pdf ; https://darko.audio/2011/01/redgum-sonofagum-5500-integrated-amplifier/ ; http://adventureshifi.blogspot.com/2010/09/tale-of-two-amps-part-2-sonafagum-sg.html Photos:
  6. Item: Audio Physic Step bookshelf speakers Location: Adelaide Price: $750 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Don't use upstairs secondary system Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, PayPal with any fees, Bank deposit Extra Info: These are amazing high quality bookshelf speakers that sing with plenty of good quality amplification - excellent tone and definition throughout with surprising bass response given their diminuative size. Minor marks on cabinetry (mostly bases) are the only blemishes. They were around A$2000 a pair (US$1395) from 1994 to 2012. https://www.stereophile.com/content/audio-physic-step-loudspeaker-specifications https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/117200-fs-audio-physic-step-speakers/ https://www.stereophile.com/content/audio-physic-step-loudspeaker The new model Step Plus has (2019) received a great review by Stereophile at over US$2500 a pair (close to A$4000 landed with all the various duties, GST etc https://www.stereophile.com/content/audio-physic-step-plus-loudspeaker https://hometheaterhifi.com/reviews/speaker/bookshelf/audio-physic-step-plus-loudspeaker-review/ I put them in an upstairs system (as pictured) that has been used once in 12 months, despite a synergistic match with a Redgum SG-5500 integrated (also for sale). I bought them from a Perth SNA member 18 months ago for $800. He owned them from new and I am therefore the second owner. Prefer local demo and sale but can package for an interstate buyer and courier with insurance for about $50. Smoke free home and no children or pet issues. I donate to SNA. Photos:
  7. I had a Bel Canto Pre2P also and it did sound much better with EC 180M power amps than EC4.7 in my then Perth house. But in Adelaide I preferred 4.5 and now 4.8 with 180Ms. The EC AW100DMB is hard to beat in the power amp range if you don't need extra power and I preferred it to the AW120 tried subsequently.
  8. A great buy here for the lucky someone who wanted a one box solution
  9. Hegel makes a very fine integrated and I enjoyed my time with a H160. GLWTS
  10. Thank you - an even better acquisition for someone able to collect GLWTS
  11. Lovely speakers. Any information you can share on age and useage?
  12. If only I had the space. I loved the mid and top of my C2 Signatures but the bottom end didn't quite get there - no such issue here with C4. New owner will ubdoubtably be very happy with end game musical speakers.
