  1. The amplifier would be about 18-20 years old. I unfortunately don't know the service history. I have used it a few times in the last year and all is working perfectly so have seen no need to get it serviced.
  2. Hum is just from the transformer and not audible through the speakers. It's really an issue in my house, have tried so many different amps, solid state and tube and they all hum. Have tried DC blockers, filters, power boards all with no results. Don't have room for a power reconditioner.
  3. Item: Cary CAD-280SA V12 power amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $3000 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Tubes amplifier transformers hum in my house. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this monster tube amplifier last year and used it for a few weeks along with my Cary SP-50B preamp. It sounded absolutely glorious but the transformer hum in my house is simply too much for me to bear. I tried everything except for power reconditioning but sadly no luck. Have tried the amp in 2 other locations and heard no hum whatsoever. If you live in the Melbourne inner city suburbs and are serious about buying then I am happy to bring the amp over for auditioning. Comes with the original box.

  8. Thanks Seth, it must have moved after removing some dust before I took the photo. Tweeters are definitely not functional.
  9. Item: Magnepan MG 2.6r speakers Location: Melbourne Price: $600 ONO Item Condition: Good but tweeters need repairing Reason for selling: I purchased these for myself along with a record collection and busted the tweeters whilst moving them - was not aware they were that sensitive! Checked with my equally good other half and she won't let them into the house. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: I have tested the speakers and the low and mid are working but the tweeters need repairing or replacing. If you have steady hands you can get a repair kit from Magnepan for aprox $260 AUD shipped or $1400 AUD for full tweeter replacements. Bill Mclean in NSW also offers a repair service. Local sales only. Pictures:
  10. Have lowered the price by $200. Feel free to make me an offer.
  11. Item: Audiocraft AC-3000 MC Silver Tonearm Location: Hawthorn Price: $1950 $1750 Item Condition: Unused Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this arm with the idea of fitting it to my Dr Feickert turntable but am really happy with the Stogi S and prefer a black arm on a black table. This arm has never been used. Pictures:
  12. I just bought some Magnepan mg-2.6/r but sadly the tweeters are ripped. Does anyone know someone who will repair these in Melbourne? I spoke with Bill from MCCleans but he could not recommend anyone. Thank for your help!
