  1. Item: Framed art print of “NYX" by Sylvia Ji limited edition of 50 Location: Peoples’ Republic of Moreland (melb inner north) Price: $420 or best offer Item Condition: Excellent save for a small chip from the back corner of the frame (pictured) Reason for selling: not being displayed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Possessing an artistic voice as unique as the times we live in, Sylvia Ji is at once contemplative, spiritual, enigmatic, and yet whimsically funny. Above all else, it is perhaps beauty that emerges as her defining characteristic, and her art reflects this: an extension of herself; a passionate appreciation of simple aesthetic pleasure fused with intimately complex subject matter. Make no mistake – Sylvia Ji is the real deal: an artist of genuine, sometimes brutal, sincerity in a world of swirling uncertainty and constant change. Yet, she does more than consistently adjust to the change that life brings, she thrives on it; taking life as it is, content to simply “be”. Using the simplest of materials to create her work….she would say “letting it magically happen”... the results obliterate the antiquated lines between ostensibly “high brow” and “low brow” art. A self-professed lover of travel and life long student of international culture and art, Sylvia’s experiences and relationships continue to shape her exploration of indefinable human emotion. And while the future remains as mysterious to her as she may be to her audience, Sylvia stands confidently poised to continue to surprise. Now, and in the years to come, her life’s journey is more than the sum of its parts – drawn from her past, built on the present and beyond fascinating expressions of love and lust, beauty and decay, delicacy and passion.

  4. Thanks for your interest, @ThirdDrawerDown . The link is to a review, not a store, and the price is wrong. The retail price here in Australia was either 149 or 159 and a few years ago I struggled to find one to buy at all, let alone anywhere near $100 (IIRC, I paid $145). If you check other reviews UK price was £85 and in 2010 when this came out we were getting 60p to the dollar. The only complaints the reviews have were that there are other similar products for less money, but they don't have the Synology DSM interface, which is the best around. It's a product which fills a small niche, but fill it it does. Assuming your comments indicate you're interested, PM me your postal address and I'll reply with my bank details

    Item: Probably the best bang-for-buck cans I've ever heard. Location: People's Republic of Moreland (Melb inner North) Price: $125 + postage (but see below) Item Condition: Excellent used condition. Includes original packaging (box is a little worse for wear) Reason for selling: Not being used enough to justify keeping their awesomeness from another budding audio nerd Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have real reservations about selling these. Sonically, there is nothing they do wrong and a whole lot they do right for the price. They make me grin more than any other headphone I've tried because of their sheer audacity at sounding as good as they do while being as ugly and impractical as they are. Unfortunately, I don't have a regular enough use case for open-backed (and I do mean open - they bleed like they're on inside out) headphones that aren't really portable. If you're under 25 and just rocking out to stuff in your room and you want to hear what music really sounds like, I implore you to buy these. In fact, if you're a young gal or guy (there are some on this forum, right?) and this is your first set of proper headphones or you're buying them as a gift for someone like that I'll happily take $100 posted just to get you into them. I promise you'll donate your Beats straight to your little sister. I really want to keep these. But more than that, I want you to love them as much as I do Pictures:

  10. Item: AKG Q701 open-backed headphones with custom 2.5m (approx) cable (Chord Co, Furutech and Cardas) Location: People's Republic of Moreland (Melb inner North) Price: $160 for headphones and $60 for cable or $200 for both together Item Condition: Headphones are excellent, very little use (unfortunately). Cable is very sound although the cable itself is a bit yellowed (was originally white) Reason for selling: Replaced with good closed-back cans Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Fantastic Headphones that punch well above their weight, very clean and engaging sound. In excellent condition with very minimal signs of wear as per photos. Comes with both original 3m and 6m cables (both showing a bit more age but working perfectly). Box and original packaging included. The cable is constructed from a The Chord Co. iChord cable, terminated with Furutech Rhodium plugs purchased from Krispy Audio (there's your $75 there) and soldered with Cardas solder. Sound is crisp, clean and more airy than the stock cable. Happy to post at buyer's cost Pictures:
  11. Item: Isolation cones BDR Mk3 Cones (Mk3 and Mini Pits (Mk3) Location: People's Republic of Moreland (Melb inner North) Price: $175 for the set Item Condition: Excellent used condition Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Extremely sexy and effective isolation system. Only local seller I could find for what's being offered, cost is over $350 Pyramid Cones Basic building blocks of the BDR system Effective means of vibration control under all types of components Mk3 Pyramid Cones are generally used under solid state and digital equipment Mk4 Pyramid Cones are generally used under valve equipment. The Black Diamond Racing Pyramid Cones Mk3 and Mk4 are the initial interface in a vibration control system. With a crush point of over 4,500 kg, the Pyramid Cones can be used virtually anywhere. The proper placement will significantly effect the performance of the cones so the rule of thumb is the tip of the cone towards the resonant surface. For example, under a CD transport sitting on an MDF shelf, the tips of the cones should be pointing down. Mini Pit a variety of functions in one product The Mini Pit is designed to serve a variety of functions in one product, providing unprecedented versatility to the audiophile. The Mini Pit is a disc shaped piece approximately 47mm in diameter, and of the same construction as The Shelf. The Pit has dimple on one side for use as a Cone cup and threaded on the other side for screwing together with the Pyramid Cones. (Refer also to Puck for description of how it may be used). The Mini Pit can be used with a variety of BDR products. This provides the listener the opportunity to determine how best to use the product in your system, trying it in various ways. In addition, this flexibility of use may be advantageous in the future should your location or set up change. Supplied with studs to allow attachment to Pyramid Cones. Pictures:
