  1. These really are wonderful speakers (I don't know this pair but the model) and if you are near enough to potentially collect them I highly recommend an audition.
  2. Amazingly cheap for wonderful power amps. I love mine but they deserve a larger room and plenty of use.
  3. Item: Cardas Clear 3m speaker cables Location: Adelaide Price: $2900 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: too long and bulky for my room and too expensive to leave idle Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, PayPal with any fees, bank deposit Extra Info: These currently sell new for about US$5000 or A$9000 in Australia and are in very good condition with only small signs of use on silver banana plugs both ends and cable lettering. Manufacturer’s link: http://www.cardas.com/clear_sp.php Great reviews, eg Stereophile: ... JM was most impressed by the Cardas Clear’s low-frequency clarity and resolution, finding the Clear to give two or three more bass notes on a pipe organ, with a lower noise floor and “spooky” resolution compared with his reference MIT MH-770 CV Terminator cables. “The best-sounding cables I have heard,” he concluded. JA agrees that these are fine-sounding cables.

  4. The chap alluded to is indeed still grateful to Rockeater for introducing EC to him! Shame my WA friend didn't keep his EC UP CD player too.
  5. Yes they are still for sale if you want them please send me a message. I listed them here for about $500 less than eBay. Many thanks
  6. I and they are in Adelaide but if you want them insured courier will probably be around $70
  7. Item: Bel Canto Pre1/evo200.4 pre and power amplifiers Location: Adelaide Price: $1990 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Too many amplifiers (again/still) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank deposit, Paypal with any fees Extra Info: As many of you will know, these are a wonderfully musical and powerful combination from the good old days when high end was made in the USA. US$6490 in US and almost double that in Australia. Black full width units. Bel Canto's Pre1 line preamplifier had plenty of balanced (XLR) and single ended (RCA) inputs and outputs (no inbuilt phono stage) and 2 fully working remote controls (lettering on oldest is worn hence the second one). The Bel Canto evo 200.4 power amplifier accepts balanced and single ended inputs and can be used in either 4 channel or in stereo mode as I have done with 500W RMS per channel into 8 ohms - all options are selected via simple external switch. Only selling because as now have room for only one complete system and have decided to keep my much more expensive Electrocompaniet system (over $30k RRP). Bel Cantos are in very good condition with a bit of dust but no significant scratches etc, built like tanks and have no issues. Will courier to an interstate buyer in two sturdy, well padded boxes and with full insurance at cost. If you are in Adelaide demo and local pickup is very welcome.

  8. Hi. Grateful for a bit more background on the unit in terms of age, use, are original tubes being sold as well, remote working fine and good condition etc. Is it the same unit as advertised by petng in November 2013 and ppter_pf in October 2017? Many thanks
  9. Wonderful speakers used and maintained assiduously by a great exemplar of our hobby. GLWTS
  10. I used a pair in my Perth office to very good effect. Very flexible due to sensitivity and respond well to quality electronics (I used a Sugden A21). GLWTS
  11. Wonderful speakers - if only I had the room given how nice my 927be are. GLWTS
  12. Many thanks for the valuable additional info. I was commending you on the photos with serial numbers not realising that the red bits were you censoring them!
