  1. Item: Quasimodo Mini 20W integrated amplifier Location: Parramatta, NSW Price: $400 $350 (bargain!) plus postage. Item Condition: 9.5/10 near new, hardly used (I'd say 10/10 however this must be reserved for fully new products surely?) Reason for selling: Too many amps and this one is not being used - reluctant sale, but it is better off being used than packed away in my office. Payment Method: Paypal or direct bank deposit preferred. Prefer pickup from Parramatta or can be posted at buyers expense. Extra Info: This little amp packs a big punch for 20W. Hand built by Richard McDonald (tagstrip) in mid-2014. I have used this amp very lightly at low levels in my office to run Omega Super 3i speakers. The amp would arguably not be 'burnt-in' as yet. I requested for this amp to be built integrated, that is with a pre-amp, which was delivered wonderfully. No doubt Richard will be able to offer more specific spec details if asked nicely. I also run a 40W Quasimodo at home and am very impressed with these amps. Note, I will be overseas from 20 July and returning 22 August 2016. Pictures: Pics of the amp during the build process (first four pics) and as it is today (next three pics)
  2. There is a bunch of info on SNA if you do a search for these amps. A couple of members in particular are much more knowledgable than I am. The basic differences as I understand it are below. The AU2900 is a 15W amp compared to the AU3900 which is a 22W amp. There is plenty of punch for 15W and other Sansui amp member will attest to the conservative power stated on these little classics. These sites are a good reference point for the different Sansui models. http://www.sansui.us/Amplifiers.htm http://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/sansui/au-2900.shtml http://www.hifiengine.com/manual_library/sansui/au-3900.shtml Hope this assists.

  3. Item: Sansui AU2900 amplifier Location: Parramatta, NSW Price: now SOLD $250 plus postage. A $20 donation will be given to SNA from the sale. Item Condition: 8/10 Reason for selling: Too many amps and this one is not being used - reluctant sale. Payment Method: Paypal or direct bank deposit preferred. Prefer pickup from Parramatta or can be posted at buyers expense. Extra information: I bought this amp earlier this year from the Sansui Grandmaster (skippy124). This little beauty has had the 'skippy treatment', that is, full recap and bias pot replacement and speaker binding post replacement, in addition to being cleaned and checked over. The total cost to me of the amp including the additional work completed by Skippy was $300. It has a very clean face plate and has only minor marks on the top plate. I really like this little amp, however I have another Sansui (AU-101) and have made a decision to keep this one in my office setup. The AU2900 is better off being used than packed away in my office.

  4. Item: Quasimodo "Mini" 20W integrated amplifier Location: Parramatta, NSW Price: $600 $500 plus postage. A $20 donation will be made to SNA on completion of this sale. Item Condition: 9.5/10 near new, hardly used (I'd say 10/10 however this must be reserved for fully new products surely?) Reason for selling: Too many amps and this one is not being used - reluctant sale, but it is better off being used than packed away in my office. Payment Method: Paypal or direct bank deposit preferred. Prefer pickup from Parramatta or can be posted at buyers expense. Extra Info: This little amp packs a big punch for 20W. Hand built by Richard McDonald (tagstrip) in mid-2014. I have used this amp very lightly at low levels in my office to run Omega Super 3i speakers. The sound was grippy and crystal but I have discovered the joys of old Sansui's.... The amp would arguably not be 'burnt-in' as yet. I requested for this amp to be built integrated, that is with a pre-amp, which was delivered wonderfully. No doubt Richard will be able to offer more specific spec details if asked nicely. I also run a 40W Quasimodo at home and this ain't going anywhere! Pictures: Pics of the amp during the build process (first four pics) and as it is today (next three pics)
  5. Ok, ok, bad english. Just thoughts from those that know better than myself, which really opens up the floor to contributions. Suggestions so far are very appreciated - thanks all. C
  6. Hi all What are the more learned members thoughts on a decent vintage turntable? I'm thinking direct drive from the 70s and up to ~$500 (not including cartridge). It's for a second setup paired with Sansui integrated amps (AU-101 and AU-2900) through Omega full range monitors (Super 3i's). I'll probably just plug the TT straight into the amp's on-board phono stages. Simple setup. I'm totally open to suggestions but would also like to know if and what Sansui TT's are good to keep an eye out for. Thanks in advance. Carlos
  7. How would this 15W amp perform and sound with a set of these? I'm interested in these amps for an office desktop setup. http://omegaloudspeakers.com/super3desktop.html
  8. There is a drive belt issue on my Funk Firm Little Super Deck. The rubber belt appears to be running up against the top of the brass drive pin. I know this because there is a high pitch 'pinching' sound being made on rotation and a slight collection of frayed rubber around the brass drive pin. This issue has emerged over the past few weeks and wasn't there when I first set the table up. I have checked all levels and everything is dead level. Any clues? Carl
  9. No way. I was only listening to his first album last week (for umpteenth time) and explained to a younger colleague, who hadn't heard him before and thought he ripped, that as far as I knew he was still alive. The song "Dallas" is the reason I started playing slide guitar. Johnny, you should know how far you have reached to those who love the blues. RIP
  10. Soul burnin' guitar and howling' lyrics flows on...
  11. I'm considering getting the Mad Dog Pro cans from fantastic reviews to date. I want a DAC / head phone amp combo for use in the office but I'm not sure which make / model. I'll need the DAC to be able to take an RCA analog input also for my existing Ruark Audio R2. Could you learned folk send through options available in the $300-$600 range? I am considering second hand options also. CEntrance seems to have products that may be OK. I am not sure how these would match to the Mr Speaker Mad Dogs though?
