  1. Dropped price to $600.00. Hopefully this brand new player can find a good home
  2. Item: Astell & Kern AK300 DAP Location: Melbourne Price: Paid $1299, asking $600 firm Item Condition: Brand new Reason for selling: Not used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Up for sale is this new/unused AK300 which I bought from Addicted to Audio in Aug, 2016. I had the intention of using this player with a pair or Campfire Audio Andromeda IEM's, but found it more convenient to use my Iphone with my busy lifestyle. Hence this unit and & the Andromeda iem's have just been sitting in their boxes unused since. I auditioned a demo AK300 and Andromeda IEM's extensively at ATA and they proved to be a good combo. The AK300 has good resolution and is on the warm side, whilst the Andromeda iem's are neutral, natural and airy.

I will also make a 2% donation to the Bushfire Appeal on completion of the sale. All original items are included with the unit. Any questions, just ask.
  3. Item: Set of 4 Wally Isolation feet Location: Melbourne Price: Bought used from Secher Audio in 2009 for $600.00, asking $300.00 firm with *free tracked shipping Australia-wide (Replacement cost over $1200USD!) Item Condition: Very good 7.5/10 Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Up for sale is this rare set of (4) Wally feet. Wally feet were designed by a very reclusive guy, Wally Neumann who took the basis of flagship Harmonix tuning feet, and improved them with a constrained layer design comprised of exotic materials including ebony. For the tweak freaks out there, you can turn the feet over to the other side to get a slightly different tone. There is black felt material on one side and green felt material on the other to denote the different sides. I haven't experimented with this feature, but according to George Secher there is a subtle difference. These are 'absorbtion' type feet which are designed to absorb vibration through constrained layer technology then release the energy as heat. I had great success using the Wallys under my dac & cd player, as well as under a power conditioner. To read more about the basic design principle of Wally feet, you can read about Harmonix tuning feet on the Combak/Harmonix website. Harmonix are probably best known for providing the isolation for the legendary Reimyo CDP-777 & more recent CDT-777. The equivalent Harmonix feet are the TU-666ZX which were quite a bit more expensive and retailed for over $1200.00USD for a set of 4! Unlike most metallic feet, Wally feet add a touch of warmth. I recall when I bought them, they were by far the best isolation feet George had in the store at the time (which included Aurios Pro Max and a few others). I also recall George saying Wally felt his feet sounded better than the Harmonix feet. In gold and black, they look as good as they sound for sure! Wally feet have been out of production for many years and very rarely come up for sale. Condition wise, the feet show normal wear for their age incl: a few minor nicks. There is a minor crack in the Ebony wood on one foot which I've tried to show in the photos that is only noticeable on close inspection & doesn't affect the performance of the foot at all. The outer gold rings are immaculate. Overall, the feet are in very good condition and have been well cared for since purchase. A note about shipping: I will ship these items via Australia Post Express Post with Signature on delivery anywhere in Australia. They will be packed in a suitable size box with ample bubble wrap to ensure a safe journey. Otherwise local pickup is welcome. I will make a 2% donation to the Bushfire Appeal on completion of the sale. Here is your chance to pick up some true collectors items! Any questions, just ask!

  6. Yeah the Trio's are nice speakers, though they need a large room to breath. That's a nice system, congrats.
  7. Just curious what speakers you are upgrading to? GLWTS
