  1. Further information: The Wharfedale SW-150 Subwoofer offers a level of performance previously unheard of in their class. Revolutionary drive units, amplifier modules and filter stages feature on every model. They strike the perfect balance between power and sound quality, offering remarkable sound pressure levels, yet retaining enough control to be considered audiophile in quality. Solid, well-engineered power amplifiers, dedicated to the production of low frequency energy are used across the range. Power is targeted specifically at the most important section of the bass spectrum, with very little loss and a controlled roll-off allowing for superb integration with all hi-fi and home cinema systems. The filter section controls the integration with your main speakers and ensures the transition is seamless. Designed using six discrete circuits, signal purity is regarded as paramount. Finally, the Tri-lam cone is revolutionary in terms of technology and performance. Detailed elsewhere in this brochure, it is one of the most advanced cones ever seen in a moving-coil loudspeaker, coupled with an elongated voice coil with a maximum excursion of 24 mm. This is quite a compact yet well powered and musical subwoofer. I bought this off Gumtree and found it had an intermittent fault. Rather than replacing just the one faulty component, I replaced all the capacitors with quality Nichicon capacitors (sourced from Radio Spares) that are 105C rated rather than the lower spec 85C rated caps that inevitably fail. The result is a subwoofer that has many more years of life in it and arguably would sound better than when it was bought thanks to the better quality components it has been upgraded with.

  2. Further information: This is a well constructed and well powered headphone amp that is a great entry point into head-fi. The internals are impressive - R-core transformer, generous PSU caps, high speed diodes and socketed op-amps for easy rolling. It's incredibly quiet too - no hiss whatsoever on my Hi-Man 4XX headphones. As far as I can tell, it is a clone of a HA-5000 headphone amp and the current model sells for AUD$138 - https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32669541286.html Condition would be classified as excellent except for a couple of scratches (bottom of the front panel and the lid - see photos) Shipping would be about $18 in a 5kg satchel with it packed safely for transit.

  3. Further information: The Rega RB300 tonearm is one that has had many good reviews and as such is not just used on Rega's turntables. It's been seen on Linn Sondek LP12s, Technics SL1200s, Thorens and many more turntables. There is also a large range of after market options for the RB300, including internal re-wires, upgraded counter weights, and VTA kits. I bought this arm to upgrade a existing turntable and shortly after bought a whole Rega Planar 3, so this was never used. It came off a Linn LP12, so the armboard is included. There is a small chip on the head where the stylus mounts but otherwise the arm is in very good condition. Photos:
  4. Spoken for now with collection later today
  5. Item: Valve Buffer Board 6N3 x 2 Price Range: FREE Item Condition: Used Location: Perth (SOR) Extra Info: I bought two of these valve buffer boards hoping to make a valve buffer for my system. Current pricing on eBay is USD25.64 (AUD 37.50) each - https://www.ebay.com/itm/6N3-2-5670-6H3-tube-preamplifier-assembled-board-Hifi-buffer-/281371898723 There's a good thread on diyaudio also on improving the board - https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/tubes-valves/238521-cheap-6n3-buffer-amp.html When I powered one up it had some hum (on my oscilloscope) so I don't know if this was a valve thing, shielding, or power supply issue. I had a valve headphone amp a while ago and it had hum that disappeared after a few days burn in, so perhaps it could be that. Valves are a black art to me, so I'm not sure. Unfortunately, I don't have time to research, so best to move them on. I never put the boards into action, so I daresay it's simple for someone skilled in valves and has a spare voodoo doll. Preference is given to a local person / pickup but I will ship at the buyers cost if there are no local takers after a few days. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible.

  6. Currently using the 2M Black but I have a Denon DL103R + aluminium body to try when time permits
  7. Further information: The Ortofon 2M Bronze is second from the top of Ortofon's moving magnet cartridge range. To quote - The 2M Series of cartridges is designed for precise and accurate retrieval of the information in the record groove. Our philosophy is to play the record sound as accurate as possible, without coloring the sound The 2M Bronze features a nude Fine Line diamond stylus, which is particularly suited for demanding applications. The slim profile of the Fine Line stylus will track even the highest frequency information, making it a must for discerning listeners. Additionally, its larger footprint ensures reduced distortion and record wear. The 2M Bronze shares the same body as the top of the range 2M Black, so you can buy a Black stylus only and upgrade should you get the itch. This cart has less than 50 hours on it and the new price is around $590.

  9. Further information: Oppo's bluray players are built to last and have a well deserved reputation for quality of build and quality of picture. This Darbee edition also has a processor which "is able to provide greater clarity and increased perception of depth by embedding stereoscopic depth cues within the video, resulting in a more dynamic, lifelike experience." My experience is that there is a definite improvement with Darbee on, with an improved sense of depth and detail. CNet had this to say about the player - " The Oppo BDP-103 Darbee Edition is about as good as it gets with disc playback, and supports this with unusual 'Darbee' picture enhancements and strong network media support." Some other key features worth noting are - 4K output and upscaling Netflix player Additional inputs from HDMI In, USB & network 7.1 analog decoding & outputs Ethernet and Wifi (with a USB dongle, supplied) enabled Backlit quality remote control This unit has had relatively light use as we have streamed more movies than spun disks and the condition reflects this. The DVD player has been multi-zoned also and bluray multi-zoning is possible still with a small plug in board readily available from eBay. I don't have the original box so preference is given for local purchasers, but should a local deal not be available I will happily find a box and safely pack it for the journey.

  10. I used to have their big brothers, the Mini Dancer 2s, which has the same drivers and they are indeed special speakers. A couple of mods will step the performance up also. The binding post links should also be changed for some decent cable and upgrading the caps in the HF part of the crossover will let the tweeter give an even better performance.
  11. Item: Panasonic 50" & 60" Plasma TVs Price Range: $0, but a donation to SNA would be nice Item Condition: Used - Not Working Extra Info: Pickup Only (South of the River) Two non functional plasma TVs which I had hoped to resurrect but due to a change of circumstances I won't have time for the foreseeable future. I'm a big fan of the Panasonic plasma TVs, as they have a beautiful picture, much better than most LCDs in my view. Anyway, here's a chance for someone with time to get some quality viewing. Models - TH-P50G10A (50") (photos 1 & 2) and TH-P60ST60A (60") (photos 3 & 4) Neither TV has a remote control.
  12. I've heard these actual speakers and they are indeed a great sounding speaker that will not disappoint - detailed, tight and musical without being fatiguing. As others have already noted, the stands are a real plus here. I haven't heard the Yamahas but drawing speaker comparisons without understanding the equipment driving it and personal preferences is always a difficult and subjective exercise. For the right buyer, I'm sure Steve will be able to find a small toy to include to round out the package 🙂
  13. Item: Projector Screen 100 inch Location: Perth Price: $150 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Cash Extra Info: Due to size, this is pickup only This is a high quality 100 inch projector screen with a strong but light weight aluminium frame. Using a good quality projector screen makes a significant difference to your projector experience - better brightness and a sharper image - and this screen will provide you just that. The thick screen is held under tension using a series of springs (see the second picture). The screen mounts to the wall with just two screws on brackets that slide to let you centre the screen easily. The screen is easily disassembled for safe transport. Dimensions are 242 cm x 144 cm
