  1. Time to get out of audio for a little while.. All equipment is from a smoke pet free home. They are also behind a fence so no one (children, cleaners, friends) can touch anything Item: Jeff Rowland Continuum s2 Location: Sydney Inner west Price: $6.5k Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: baby is growing up no time for audio goodness :/ Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: second owner, its been sitting at the same spot with barriers around it so no one can touch it (including kids and cleaners) There are plenty of info on the web. 400 w p/c to 8 ohms. Drives the 803d much better than Macintosh MA6900 (w autoformers). It also has the optional phono cards and sounds very good. Phono supports mm and mc carts. This amp sounds crystal clear to ear bleeding levels without any distortion, and there is absolutely no background noise even turned up to max volume. Comes with aftermarket power cable, substantially thicker than normal power cable (cant remember the name, but will check when i get home).. Also have the double box, pouch and gloves with it, so potentially could ship it. Item: Bowers Wilkins 803 D Rosewood Location: Sydney Inner west Price: $6.5k Item Condition: Good overall, some nicks on the back of the speaker from the old owner, but inside is checked thoroughly. One diamond tweeter has been replaced by Convoy (bw distributor) 3 years ago. Reason for selling: baby is growing up :/ Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Bought this from a dentist who shipped them from US but upon delivery he discovered one of the diamond tweeter membrane was shattered, and some marks at the back of one of the speakers. I have replaced the tweeter, and checked the internals of both speakers to make sure there is nothing wrong with them. Marks are not too bad, and could be fixed by someone competent easily. I will take some photos and post them as soon as possible. I love these speakers, and would keep them but rarely have a chance to sit down and listen lately. Item: Linn Sondek Location: Sydney Inner west Price: $1.5k Item Condition: good Reason for selling: baby is growing up no time to listen :/ Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: it has the Ittok LVII silver tonearm, valhalla power board, flutted plinth felt mat. Will come with Ortofon blue MM cart that is used probably no more than 100 hours. Suspension seems to be pretty new (although i have not changed it in my possession..) Serial number is 44751 Item: western electric 30150-c compression driver and 6 cell horn Location: Sydney Inner west Price: $3k Item Condition: old J Reason for selling: not required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Not something you see everyday.. i have opened the unit and cleaned the dead bugs, and diaphragm seems untouched, original and very good condition (no rust or dirt on it apart from some dead insects). I have hooked it up to JR amp and it sounds very good with a 6 cell horn (included in the price).. Very sensitive as it sounded so much louder than the other channel which was hooked up to 803d. Below is what i found on the interwebs about this driver: WESTERN ELECTRIC Co Ltd 30150-C HORN and DRIVER This is the permanent magnet version of the WE 555. Initially the 30150 driver was produced in the 1930s in the same enamel baked black paint as the 555 units although as a maltese cross design. It was an alternative to the 555 where a tungar DC power supply was not practicle The 30150 was produced in various forms and this is the 'C' version. This unit has the Same face plate, terminals and diaphragm as the famous 555, same freq range is covered (possibly wider) and same throat / horn fitting. The only difference is it's a permanent magnet and so you do not need a DC power supply. Item: Reslosound SU12 with 8 cell horn Location: Sydney Inner west Price: $400 Item Condition: old but good (its from 50s) Reason for selling: not required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Not alot of info about this driver, but its from 50s.. I have tested it with an amp and it does sound pretty good. Ad for the driver is on https://www.americanradiohistory.com/AUSTRALIA/Archive-Radio-and-Hobbies/50s/Radio-and-Hobbies-1958-08.pdf Page 96 Item: Denon 7d direct drive turntable Location: Sydney Inner west Price: $300 Item Condition: Fair Reason for selling: not required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: This is a direct drive tt from denon. It works well, however plinth has some water damage on the corners, so could do with a bit of work. I have not used this turntable and it has been sitting in the cupboard for a while... Comes with a cart, although cant remember what it is now, will update when i get home I have quite a bit more stuff at home i will be advertising in coming days/weeks
  2. speaker terminals take spades, or bare wire, no bananas.. good luck with the sale.
  3. entire tweeter replacement is not too expensive (unless you have the diamond tweeter :/ ) Go to http://bwgroupsupport.com/manuals/bw-service find the part you need (i think it is zz11541) then call audio solutions in botany/sydney (b&w service) and ask for the part number and they will tell you how much it is..
  4. yeah jr terminals are pita to connect, makes bare wire nearly impossible to connect without spades... ma6900 was still a good amp, 200w /channel with autoformers, more on the classic vintagy/tuby sound with very pretty and therapeutic vu meters. (loudness button was my guilty pleasure haha).. usually neighbors knocked on the door before the powerguards.. ma8000 with more grunt should definitely work better..
  5. I have the same amp driving bw 803d for couple of years now and i like it a lot... Before JR, i had the mcintosh ma6900, it was good on moderate volumes, but lost the grip when cranked up high..powerguards would get a workout past 12 on volume dial.. jr does play with ear bleeding volumes with zero distortion, better on imaging, clarity,bass authority and optional phono stage is really good... it also runs completely cool, and is completely sealed so in theory no dust, or moisture can effect its operation..
  6. if you are willing to ship to sydney happy to buy them
  7. if you want to go second hand, you could also look at mcintosh ma7000 or jeff rowland continuum integrateds..
  8. go to http://bwgroupsupport.com/parts/partslist-select and find the part number of the driver, then call up convoy australia distributors of b&w and ask them.. i bought b&w drivers from them in the past..
  9. d means diamond.. non diamond 802 is called 802 nautilus and it used a metal (alu) tweeter..
  10. and do not underestimate their sizes, it should not fit into any station wagon, or sedan car together.. You will need a van or a ute..
  11. Crossovers are different, and phase plugs are updated. Grill is magnetic on v2, button on v1.. there is also chrome rings around the bass drivers on v2, so looks a bit more handsome..
  12. mlin has the top quality gear as always, i had the pleasure to listen to this amp and it really does look and sound stunning.. buy with confidence!
