  1. Item: Concert Fidelity ZL200 monoblocks (price reduced) Location: Melbourne Price: $8500 Item Condition: Excellent 8/10 on Audiogon scale Reason for selling: Reconfiguration of system (for balanced operation) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: purchased second hand around 5 years ago. Rarely used and always used with PS Audio conditioner. New price for these were $48,000 US ($70,000 AUD!) - very expensive (and heavy) mono blocks. You will not find any power amps of this quality near this price. This amp received the Absolute Sound 2012 Editor's Choice Award. The unique sound of the ZL-200 is aptly described by Mr. Harry Pearson: "These monoblocks are the first solid-state amps I've heard that sound like a tubed unit, and by that I mean a very good tubed unit, on the order of say, the best conrad-johnson amp (vide, the ART III) but lacking the golden glow of the CJ sound, thus rather more uncolored than most, if not all, of the transistorized competition. It has the dynamics of good tubed unit, the focus on instruments and the sense of an ambient field that is characteristic of the old William Z. Johnson design for Audio Research.

  2. Item: Concert Fidelity DAC-040BD (price reduced) Location: Melbourne Price: $3500 Item Condition: Excellent - rate 9/10 as per Audiogon rating. Reason for selling: Upgraded to DCS Vivaldi Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this DAC (and also matching Pre-amplifer - now sold) directly from Masataka-san (Concert Fidelity) in Japan in 2014. This was built specifically for Australia with 240v transformers (vs european 230v). At the time these were the only CF items purchased directly for Australia (or so Masataka-san told me - there was no local distributor at the time so dealt direct with Masataka-san). This has switching on left panel. This item was returned to Concert Fidelity in 2015 as there was a battery upgrade option (which was provided to me free of cost except shipping). Comes with manual, boxes, gloves etc and PSVane tubes. Hardly used and presents as new. Happy to entertain a deal with matching ZL200 mono blocks also for sale.

  3. Sold" pending pick-up.
  4. Item: TAG DVD32R DVD/CD Transport Location: Melbourne Price: $0 Item Condition: Not working properly Reason for selling: Not working properly Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I can't find the remote and last time I used there were issues with the door slide/close mechanism. It is free though (was a very high priced transport in its day). Catch is you need to pick up prior to 10th Jan. If you think you can get it going then a steal...

  5. Apologies, just checked the remote and it doesn't seem to be working (suspect contacts with batteries). I'll take $150.
  6. Item: Marantz DV12s2 SACD/CD/DVD player Location: Melbourne Price: $250 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Moving house - clearing out stuff Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Not used for past 6 years and something I don't want to move. Works fine and have manual, remote and original box. Very high end in its day but it's a bit dusty (and one small 'line' on the top panel - see photo) so just want to move it on. Local pick-up only at this price. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  7. Would consider to use as trade for for very high end black balanced mono blocks.
  8. Item: Jorma Origo RCA Interconnects - 1 m x 2 sets Location: Melbourne Price: $1800 per set or $3200 for both Item Condition: Excellent condition - 8/10 on Audiogon scale Reason for selling: re-configuring system for balanced operation Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Believe these cables are $6K+ each (one RCA pair secondhand currently listed in Europe for 1890 euro ($3000 AUD). Used between Concert Fidelity DAC/Pre/Power. Comes with boxes. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  9. At this stage I only want to sell 1 rack (looking for a 4 tier rack as replacement but doesn't seem to be any high quality racks about currently that fit this bill).
  10. Posting could be difficult. I'll wait to see if I can sell local first.
  11. Re age, they are probable around 10 years old. I don't have original boxes for these.
  12. These are the Pagoda Master Reference racks. They differ from the normal Pagode in that they have twin vertical pillars on each side. I should also comment that these have the finite elemente cerebase (classic) footers which are very expensive separate items which are included (should have mentioned in description). Dimensions are: Pagode rack: 34" (860mm) W by 26" (650mm) H by 23" (590mm) D. Shelf: 26" (665mm) W by 18" (465mm) D. Load capacities: upper shelves, 130 lbs (60kg); bottom shelf, 265 lbs (120kg).
  13. Item: Concert Fidelity CF-080LSX2 Pre-amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $6500 Item Condition: Excellent - 9/10 on Audiogon scale Reason for selling: Reconfiguring system due to house move. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this preamplifier (and also matching DAC - see other add) directly from Masataka-san (Concert Fidelity) in Japan in 2014. This was built specifically for Australia with 240v transformers (vs european 230v). At the time these were the only CF items purchased directly for Australia (or so Masataka-san told me - there was no local distributor at the time so dealt direct with Masataka-san). This is the v2 version with switching on left panel. Comes with manual, boxes, gloves etc and PSVane tubes. Hardly used and presents as new. Happy to entertain a deal with matching DAC and ZL200 mono blocks. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
