  1. I knew it’s a quite dated ad...never hurts to ask though, haha.
  2. Thanks Gremrock. The 1.7i rarely came up for sale for a reason. At their price point they are really hard to beat. Quite a lot of people regard them as the biggest bargain in HI-FI.
  3. Item: Magnepan 1.7i + Accessories Location: Hills district Sydney Price: $2,800+shipping (local pick up preferred). Item Condition: As new Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Believe this is the first pair of 1.7i for sale on SNA and they sound a lot better than the predecessor 1.7 Only 2 years old, in perfect working and cosmetic condition Accessories include: a. Silver jumper cables from Empirical Design. These jumper cables greatly improved transparency/detail b. Magnepan instant upgrade kit from Verstarr which includes pure silver jumpers and pure silver tubes. The silver tubes are used in place of the fuses and they massively improved the transparency and liveliness and really let you hear into the music. These tubes sounds better than any high-end fuses on the market! c. Resistors of various values from Dueland/Pathaudio/Mills. These resistors are used to take off the harsh edge and create a more analog sound, thus eliminating listening fatigue. These accessories alone costed me hundreds of $ and each of them can have a positive impact on the sound equivalent to a speaker cable change. Original packaging/manual included. Audition is possible but only for serious buyers with cash on hand. Pictures:
  4. Item: Aesthetix Calypso Tube Linestage Pre-Amp Location: Hills District Sydney Price: $2,900 including postage (RRP:$6,000) Item Condition: Excellent without a mark on it. Original packaging and remote. Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank TT Fabulous sounding tube pre-amp. Musical and emotionally engaging! A sale I may regret later. Upgrade of tubes to NOS Telefunken 12ax7 smooth plates. Tubes only a few months usage. To sweeten up the deal, I will also include the below new tubes: SOVTEK - 12ax7 x 2 Gold Lion - 12ax7 x 2 Mullard - 12ax7 x2 All these tubes alone are worth a couple of hundred $ Stereophile Class A rated! - "The Aesthetix Saturn Calypso was one of the most enjoyable, musically satisfying preamplifiers I have had the pleasure of reviewing. Your $4500 USD buys you a beautifully built, smartly designed, crisply functioning, versatile, and, most important, sonically brilliant preamplifier. I could live with it happily ever after. You could spend a great deal more and get more for your money, but you're just as likely to get less—that's how good the Saturn Calypso is." What Hifi 5 star rated! - "This pairing is one of the most natural-sounding amplifiers money can buy. It delivers Jill Scott's vocals with a full dose of passion and soul intact: there's agility, an astonishing amount of detail and just the right amount of solidity. When it comes to rendering voices or acoustic instruments, this two-boxer even makes our reference Bryston pairing sound mechanical." Pictures:
  5. Thanks a.dent Im not really good at DIY... Have since had Ghent Audio custom made them for me : )
  6. Now will include for free a pair of Anticables speaker cable (7 feet level 3.1 speaker cables with spade terminals at amp end and banana terminals at speaker end). This is probably the most organic sounding speaker cables I’ve ever heard!
  7. Fantastic unit. The buyer will surely be very happy!
  8. Dear fellow audiophiles, Im building my first music server as my modded Macmini (Uptone LPS+MMK) died on me three weeks ago. I’m planning to use LPS to power two SSDs and would need some customised DC-SATA power cables like the ones below. Could you please let me know where I can have these cables custom made? Thanks in advance for your help.
