  1. Item: Bladelius Tyr MkII integrated amplifier with original box, owner manual & remote. Location: Seaforth, Sydney NSW. Price: $1550 [RRP $3000] Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too many amps, or not enough amps... Payment Method: Pickup - Cash. Extra Info: Class AB amplifier, 100W into 8 ohms, Remote control, Can be used as pre-amp, 1 x Balanced input & 3 unbalanced inputs. Remote can dim/switch-off display, mute, change source & volume. Speaker binding posts accept both spades & banana terminals. Swedish built by John Bladelius who famously worked with Nelson Pass before leaving Pass Labs to set-up his own company. It’s built like a tank with extremely well crafted chassis. Front panel is 5 or 6mm aluminum. Cover is similar aluminum but thinner. The thing is super heavy at approx 18kg. No doubt because of the awesome transformers under the hood. This will probably end up being a regrettable sale but my audio renovation is underway and I must complete what has been started.
  2. Item: Sansui AU-919 Integrated Amp Location: Sydney Price: $1300 Item Condition: Pretty friggin good for a vintage amp of this era. Reason for selling: *cough* some might laugh, but too many Sansui amps... Payment Method: Pickup. Extra Info: This is a VERY nice Sansui AU-919. I have had it for a long time and periodically switched between this and a AU-717, both of which are extremely nice sounding amps of their generation. Earlier this year, I had SNA's very own Skippy "Lord of the Sansui's" give it a little tickle up and refreshed the hell out of it - and she's probably never sounded better. My main system runs ZU Audio Soul Supreme speakers which are super efficient 12ohm'ers, so this amp has really had an easy life for the period it's been at my casa. Essentially a very heavy, powerful integrated amp with all the bells and whistles you'd expect. Detailed, warm, flexible and lively where it matters. Additionally, the binding post terminals were upgraded to aid use of modern cables which makes it far nicer to use. Photos tell the story of the fascia - considering the age - this is really quite clean. Not too many AU-919's come up these days, so if you've had one on your bucket-list, this could be your early xmas. The thing is 21kg of HEAVY! So prefer local pickup at this stage. Northern Beaches, Sydney. Technical specs copied from website: Power output: 100 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.008% Damping factor: 100 Input sensitivity: 0.1mV (MC), 2.5mV (MM), 150mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 74dB (MC), 90dB (MM), 100dB (line) Channel separation: 75dB (MM), 70dB (MC), 80dB (line) Output: 150mV (line), 1V (Pre out) Speaker load impedance: 8Ω (minimum) Dimensions: 430 x 168 x 428mm Weight: 21.4kg Photos:
  3. Do you know which version this is? (1, 2 or 3).
  4. Item: Bladelius Tyr MkII integrated amplifier with original box, owner manual & remote. Location: Seaforth, Sydney NSW.

  5. Item: PSAudio PerfectWave II DAC with Network Bridge upgrade. Location: Seaforth, Sydney, NSW Price: $2150. Happy to pack and ship at your expense. Item Condition: Perfect. Includes manual, remote and cord. Reason for selling: Reducing resolution. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal or Bank Transfer. Extra Info: This was the second DAC I purchased trying to chase the curve of performance. I moved to this PS Audio PerfectWave DAC from an Audio-GD DAC19 owned by PeteMac, which in it's own right was a pretty good unit. BUT - The sound difference moving to this PWD was, quite frankly, amazing! There is a lot written about this DAC. Very really regarded and reliably reproduces almost any digital source plugged in. If you are looking for a really great PCM DAC that will allow you to serve digital music from anywhere in your home into your amp or pre-amp, give this some thought. It is really in as-new condition and unless you've already spent $5K plus on a DAC, it will no doubt make a significant difference in your system. https://www.psaudio.com/products/perfectwave-dac/ Pictures:
  6. I'd be looking to drive my Zu's which are 12ohm. Will take a look at the links - thanks for the quick reply.
  7. @acgUnderstanding this is a little off-topic - what model DIY SS amp kit is that? I've been thinking about building something and that dual-mono setup looks pretty good. Thanks.
  8. Name & model. New LINN LP12 Dust Cover - Clear. Reproduction. Location: Sydney - (Seaforth). Item condition description: New, never used in anger. Clear 4.5mm Reproduction with approperiate cutouts for hinges - as per photos. Price and price conditions: $140 - inc donation to sna. Pickup only. Reason for selling: Surplus to requirements. Payment Methods: Paypal, Cash on Pickup preferred. Extra Info: I wanted to give my 1980's LP12 a facelift & update the brown lid, but the price to get a clear lid landed here or purchased locally is cost prohibitive. So I drew up some plans & enlisted a company to frabicate two for me (thinking that one would eventually scratch up). However, the one I use still looks as good as the day it was installed (pictured on TT), so this new unused one is surplus to my needs. The reproduction ones are 4.5mm thick & thus weigh more than the stock one, so the hinges get a workout, but does reduce flex which pretty much removes the ability to crack it unless dropped. Go on - Give your TT some treatment & pimp your LP12! Pictures: Below.
  9. Item: Kenwood KA-9100 Dual Mono Integrated Amp. Location: Sydney (Seaforth) Price: $1450. Item Condition: Excellent (for age) Reason for selling: Need the money Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: This is an rare KA-9100 amp. Pretty much the last of the big boys from Kenwood. Dual Mono design & 90wpc. Lots of power. great looks and a fantastic original wood case (which can be removed). This is the international version with multi-voltage selection. So you can run it on 110v or 240v. Also comes with the original 1977 Kenwood box! how's that for hording... Condition: It's pretty much been in carbonate freeze, hence why it's in this condition, boxed for all these years. Overall, this amp is in incredible condition. The face plate is spotless, no dings, dents or corner imperfections one would usually expect. It's perfect. The outer wood cabinet is also in incredible condition. Nothing worth mentioning other than a slight mark above the Kenwood 'd', small enough to be hard to photograph. Sound: It's comparable to my Sansui AU-717. Warm, great sound-stage and wide-ranging detail. Oh and it has VU meters with working lights!! Built-in phono-stage is as good as they get for that era. All dials, switches and buttons work as expected during my quick power-up and couple of hours listening. Specifications: Power output: 90 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 7Hz to 50kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.03% Input sensitivity: 2.5mV (MM), 150mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 83dB (MM), 100dB (line) Output: 1V (Pre out) Speaker load impedance: 4Ω to 16Ω Dimensions: 430 x 149 x 384mm Weight: 16.7kg Year: 1977
