  1. These are truly spectacular speakers. The buyer will be very happy! Shame they are on the wrong coast!
  2. Go on... make an offer. I'm in a mood to clear out unused gear.
  3. Thanks Peter, I prefer local sale, because they are VERY heavy. But if no buyer in the next week or so, we can discuss packing.
  4. Item: Titan Super 8 Projector Location: Melbourne (Northcote or Brunswick) Price: $60 or best offer.. Item Condition: No idea! This is in the box, with no accessories. Looks to be in good condition, but I don't know if it works. Reason for selling: I have absolutely no use for this. It is part of a deceased estate. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I know nothing about this. It came from my late father's estate. Not sure what it is worth, or whether it works. Hoping it can go to someone who will get enjoyment out of it. Pictures:
  5. Item: Musical Fidelity MC2 speakers Location: Melbourne (Northcote or Brunswick) Price: $100 obo Item Condition: OK - one side of each cabinet has had a small section of the veneer removed in a circle, and a glue put into the hole. Otherwise, they are in reasonable, but not perfect visual condition. I have not tested the speakers, so cannot vouch for whether they work or not. Sold as is, untested. The speakers are in storage at the moment, but can be retrieved easily. Reason for selling: Not required - these belonged to my late father, and I am cleaning out unwanted gear. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I don't know much about these speakers. They are not the prettiest speakers in the world, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, right? If you have an amp that you want to bring along to test these on, please feel free to. Pictures:
  6. Item: Yamaha NS890 Vintage Speakers and Yamaha R700 Amp/reciever Location: Melbourne (Northcote or Brunswick) Price: $300 for the lot (or best offer) Item Condition: Speakers: Average to poor. Dust caps on mid ranges have been pushed in. Believe all the beryllium mids and tweeters are working though. Only one grille included. Amp: Not working. My sister was using it, and said it stopped working. I have not looked into this. Hopefully something small. Sold as not working. As is - not tested, no guarantees. Reason for selling: Not needed. These were from my late father. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Given the condition of the speakers, and the non functional condition of the amp this is most likely useful for someone wanting to restore the speakers, or use the famous Beryllium drivers for a project speaker. The cabinets are in decent condition, but not perfect. These are pick up only, as they are very heavy! This is taken from https://audio-heritage.jp/YAMAHA/speaker/ns-890.html and translated to English to give a full description Yamaha's first four-way speaker system that uses Yamaha's high-purity beryllium diaphragm in the mid-high range. The 30 cm cone type Woofer is carried in low-pass. Corn paper is a conical type with corrugation, which suppresses split vibration and has a wide piston area. Moreover, the roll edge of the outstanding urethane foam is adopted as the edge. Furthermore, the damper which supports the vibration system has also carefully examined the material and impregnating agent to improve the linearity. The ferrite magnet of 156φ mm and weight 4.4kg is adopted as the magnetic circuit, and the total magnetic flux 200,000 maxwell and the magnetic flux density 10,000 gauss are obtained. Employs DuPont nylon fiber Nomex as the voice coil bobbin, and because of the edgewise winding long voice coil of the copper ribbon wire, the voice coil does not deviate from the magnetic field even at large input, and excellent linearity is obtained. . Moreover, the center pole is covered with a copper cap to suppress offensive third harmonic distortion over the entire band. The 12cm corn type mid bus is carried in the middle low region. Corn paper is light in weight using carefully selected materials. In addition, the voice coil is a heat-treated copper ribbon wire with a good space factor, and has a size of 42 mm. The edge is made of a specially processed cloth made of resin material, and the linearity is sufficiently enhanced for the amplitude in the used zone. The magnetic circuit is a 90mm mm 1kg ferrite magnet with a total flux of 60,500 maxwell and a flux density of 11,300 gauss. In order to avoid the influence from the woofer, the back cavity is attached to the back and glass wool is fully packed to suppress unnecessary resonance. The mid high with the dome-shaped beryllium diaphragm of 50φmm is carried in the middle high region. The heat-resistant copper ribbon wire edgewise wound voice coil is directly connected to the diaphragm that makes use of the characteristics of the beryllium material, and is supported by the tangential edge of a special fiber double coated with a visco-elastic resin and a thermosetting resin. You are Moreover, the movement of the edge is smoothed by opening an air hole in the outer pole on the back of the edge, and a better linearity is obtained. The magnet of 100φ mm, 1.2 kg, total magnetic flux 72,000 maxwell, and total magnetic flux density 15,500 gauss is adopted as a magnetic circuit. The air chamber with a tapered center pole suppresses unwanted resonance behind the diaphragm and suppresses distortion during large input. Moreover, the acoustic diffuser is attached to the front of the diaphragm for directivity improvement. The 3cm dome shape tweeter is carried in the high region. A beryllium diaphragm molded into a 30φ mm dome shape is adopted as the diaphragm, and it is directly connected to the heat-resistant aluminum ribbon wire edgewise wound voice coil and double coated with viscoelastic resin and thermosetting resin. It supports with the special fiber tangential edge. Moreover, the center pole in the space behind the voice coil is tapered to fill the gaps with a sound absorbing material to suppress unnecessary resonance inside the unit. The magnetic circuit uses a ferrite magnet of 80φ mm, weight 0.8 kg, magnetic flux density 14,500 gauss, and total magnetic flux 20,000 maxwell. The frame of each unit is made of aluminum die cast. The network part adopts MP capacitor and is designed by electrical characteristics and aural check. Moreover, the mid high and the tweeter are equipped with continuously variable level control. The enclosure is completely sealed, the surface is oak finish, and only baffle plate is black finish. The same particle board is used as the material on the entire surface, and each side has an integrated structure joined with a strong adhesive. The baffle plate and back plate are 25 mm thick and others are 188 mm thick, and reinforcement is given in various places. method 4 way · 4 speakers · closed system · book shelf type Unit used For low range: For 30cm cone type middle low range: For 12cm cone type middle high range: For 5cm dome type high range: 3cm dome type Regeneration frequency band 40Hz to 20kHz Lowest resonance frequency 40Hz Crossover frequency 600Hz, 2kHz, 6kHz Output sound pressure level 92 dB / W / m Impedance 8 Ω Maximum allowable input 80W External dimensions Width 375 x height 745 x depth 317 mm weight 31 kg Pictures:
  7. Item: MK2 Linn Kans with matching stands Location: Brunswick VIC Price: $950 (go on... make me an offer...) Item Condition: Speakers: Excellent for age. Stands: As new Reason for selling: Just bought a new set of floorstanders... I need the space and the cash! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased these speakers here on SNA a bit over a year ago. They are in great condition for their age, with the odd mark here and there. Importantly, they are in perfect working condition and have not been messed with. As most people who own Kans know, the stands are a really key part of getting the best performance out of these little speakers. I found a set in the UK that had been freshly powder coated and were in fantastic condition, so I imported them. I don't want to talk about how much that cost... But they are basically impossible to find in Australia, so not much choice! These are a super sweet little speaker, and deserve all of the praise that is heaped onto them. So, why am I selling them? My listening area is not the greatest. I have a big sliding glass door behind my speakers, and the Kans really want to be up hard against a solid wall to sound their best. I wanted to move the room around, but decided that harmony in the home was probably more important. I'm really sad to let these go, because I had hunted for them for so long, and they are really beautiful to listen to when set up properly. I do not have boxes for these speakers, so prefer local buyer, but will consider sending by Pack and Send at buyers expense, if there is a really keen buyer out of town. Extra Info: Pictures:
  8. Hi Jowls, Do you mean the surrounds on the drivers? Only one of the grilles is removable (I suspect the other one has never been off). It would be possible to pry the other one off, but I am loathe to remove it if it still has the original glue... Please see photo of the speaker with removable grille attached.

  10. These are genuinely spectacular looking speakers in the flesh. For the money, you would be hard pressed to find something anywhere near as good. Good luck with the sale!
  11. I’ve had an offer on the stands, which is very good. I’m now offering an option on the speakers alone at $600. I’m holding on to both until I have a buyer for both, so if someone wants the whole set, this is still available.
  12. A Nait works well, the NAP250 I was running them with is sublime!
