  1. Will you sell the toppers separately ?
  2. Item: Margules ADE 24.1 Audio Digital Enhancer Location: Sydney Hills Area Price: $350 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank TT Extra Info: Margules ADE 24.1 Audio Digital Enhancer works by supposedly removing all of the 3rd harmonic digital hash commonly generated by cds and other players. Really works well. Adds that "triode tube" warmth... more space and air between instruments, much more musical. It works! From the manufacturers website: Some listeners feel digital recording is flat and sterile-sounding, lacking the warmth and presence of analog reproduction. For those listeners, Margules Audio has designed the Magenta ADE-24 Analog/Digital Enhancer. Until now, the problems involved in reconstructing the original analog signal from digital samples have been dealt with in the digital domain. This requires complex—and expensive—DSP (digital signal-processing) circuitry. In our research, we found that the basic problems can be solved in the analog domain. The design of the ADE-24 is based on the idea that high-order odd harmonics are generated during the reconstruction of the analog signal. These harmonics falsify instrumental timbre, and create a bright, hard, or harsh sound. We designed a circuit with the reverse transfer function, to remove these unwanted harmonics and more-closely approximate the original signal. Implementing this design would normally require integrated circuits (with less-than-perfect sound quality), or costly discrete circuits. Our original circuit topology (patent pending) gives outstanding performance at a reasonable price. The ADE-24 is also a buffer. Its low output impedance reduces interaction between the program source and the interconnecting cables. The ADE-24 is connected to the output of any digital audio source.
  3. Item: Malotki E-4M CD line transformer 1:1 Location: Sydney Hills District Price: $650 Item Condition: See below Reason for selling: Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank TT Interface transformer to improve digital sound. Acts as a perfect buffer between digital sources and amplifier to diminish digititis. Very rare line CD transformer model E-4M manufactured by Malotki during WW2 in Western Germany. One transformer has case and one does not have case. Both have same DCR value, matching pair. Wiring is Western Electric 50' year. Great performance, highly recommend for CD line transformer, and for MM cartridge. This is the kind of transformer that audio mania demands a hearing of. Once in a lifetime sound experience . Sound is very rich and sweet and musical. Step up ratio is 1:1. Primary has CT so you can use it for XRL connection.
  4. Item: Yamaha CT-7000 Tuner Location: Sydney Hills District Price: $550 plus postage Item Condition: Perfect Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfer This tuner is acknowledged as being one of the best ever made. Great condition with two small corner dings. Box and manual. Has been upgraded with 2 metre Yarbo 2200 Silver power cable and Furutech US plug $200 plus audible upgrade. Description The Yamaha CT-7000 distortion characteristics are so negligible even the most sensitive testing equipment can't measure them. Gone are the days when the FM tuner was the weak link in a top of the line stereo system. With the CT-7000, Yamaha gives you clear, distortion free FM stereo response that measures up to (and probably surpasses) every other part of your stereo system. Even if you don't fully understand the technical details of this radically new design you can hear the difference - because the CT-7000 provides studio like FM stereo even in the most difficult reception areas, with the lowest distortion of any tuner in the world. Specifications Type: Mono/Stereo Tuner Tuning Bands: FM Tuning Scale: Analogue FM Tuning Range: 88 to 108 MHz Sensitivity: 1.6uV (FM) Signal to Noise Ratio: 75dB (FM) Distortion: 0.2% (FM) Selectivity: 80dB (FM) Frequency response: 30Hz to 15kHz (FM) Output: 775mV Dimensions: 436 x 144 x 352mm Weight: 10.8kg
  5. Item: OPPO BDP-93 Universal Player Location: Sydney Hills District Price: $350 plus postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank TT Great condition, lightly used (in storage wrapped in glad wrap for years) with remote and accessories. The BDP-93 was OPPO's first Blu-ray player to support 3D playback and streaming video-on-demand. Like its predecessor, the BDP-93 is a universal disc player that supports playback of the SACD, DVD-Audio, and HDCD formats, as well as AVCHD, MP4, DivX, MKV, FLAC, and WAV files. This Profile 2.0 Blu-ray player offers BD-Live Web functionality and BonusView/picture-in-picture playback, and it sports dual HDMI outputs, for compatibility with non-3D-capable AV receivers. The BDP-93 offers bitstream output and onboard decoding of Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, with 7.1-channel analog audio outputs. OPPO's Web platform includes Netflix and Blockbuster OnDemand, and you can add the player to your network via a wired or wireless connection (a USB WiFi adapter is included). The OPPO was the clear winner in build quality and quiet operation. Its chassis and especially its disc tray felt much more sturdy, and the BDP-93 was impressively quiet when loading and navigating discs. Conclusion OPPO Digital has done it again. In both performance and design, the new BDP-93 is a rousing success. It supports the two hottest new trends--3D and VOD--yet it's also built to accommodate most any system and play most any disc in your back catalog... As far as I'm concerned, when it comes to having the complete package, the BDP-93 is the player to beat on the current Blu-ray landscape... Home Theatre Review 2011
  6. Item: Oppo BDP-105 Darbee Universal Player with Signature Edition Upgrade by Upgrade Company in USA Location: Sydney Hills District Price: $850 Plus Postage Item Condition: Excellent - Very little use Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank TT If you want a very high quality source that does it all with movies and music, the Oppo 105D is it! And with the Signature Edition Upgrade it is a killer player. It has multi region installed and was also sent to the USA for the Signature Edition upgrade by the upgrade company (@ US$1299 plus almost $300 in postage!) I have the certificate of authenticity. It is a significant upgrade on the 105 (which I sold here a few years back). Includes Darbee Darblet free. https://upgradecompany.com/brands/oppo/product/451-new-oppo-bdp-105-including-signature-edition-upgrade-mods Alongside the standard disc trio of Blu-ray, DVD and CD, the BDP-105D will also play SACDs and DVD-Audio discs. While the likes of SACD and DVD-Audio are hardly mainstream formats, they are good ways of getting a high-resolution music signal into your system, and that can’t be a bad thing. As has become common, the Oppo has smart functionality: it’ll deliver Netflix, You Tube and BBC iPlayer among others and can stream high-resolution music files (up to 24-bit/192kHz) across a home network. We’re impressed with the BDP-105D’s connectivity. It feels as if Oppo has tried to cover all bases. There’s an ample supply of type A USBs (three) and HDMIs (MHL-compatible inputs along with a pair of outputs), as well as the usual digital audio of optical, co-ax and (type USB. The optical and coax are limited to 96kHz sampling rates, while the USB accepts 192kHz. Digital inputs on a product such as this are only really useful if the on-board DAC is a good one – and it is. The design uses high-quality ESS Sabre DAC chips, as found on Audiolab’s hugely-talented £600 M-DAC as well as pricier digital products. There’s no shortage of analogue outputs, either. Alongside single-ended and (the better sounding) balanced XLR stereo connections, you’ll find increasingly rare multi-channel audio outputs designed for use with older receivers that don’t have HDMI inputs, or can’t cope with SACD or DVD-Audio signals through them.
