  1. Zaph L18RNX low baffle-step speaker Absolute Giveaway Price Extra Info: I bought these wonderful speakers a while ago. A short while later we moved apartments and now they are just too big for the space I have available, so regrettably I've had to put them up for sale. I've thoroughly enjoyed these speakers, they have a wonderful rich sound, I never felt the need for a sub. They are a substantial speaker for a "bookshelf" speaker and VERY solid. Literally everyone comments on these when they see them, they are simply a beautiful piece of furniture, my wife loved them also. There are some superficial marks and a small ding on the rear edge of one speaker. They have been hand built by a member here at StereoNET (you can search for his original add of which I’ve copied and pasted the technical details) they sound like a far more expensive speaker than the asking price (I paid $900). As they are hand made they have some minimal imperfections that you won't notice unless examined closely, sitting in your room they will be far more beautiful than your friends speakers. I've included a description of the speakers design as described by the maker. Quote: I built these to try out a new construction technique and look at executing lower baffle-step designs. The speakers are now nicely run-in with ~50 hours of use. I cannot stress enough, that if you were to buy a pair of speakers from a retailer you would be looking at spending thousands of dollars to equal the sound quality that these speakers deliver. It's a great price-point in terms of performance and value. These speakers are based on a well-respected design by John "Zaph" Krutke. Some of the technical details are outlined on his website http://www.zaphaudio.com/audio-speaker17.html though a slightly different crossover configuration was used in this speaker to facilitate different room placement. The crossover is the heart and soul of any speaker. This electrical network divides the entire frequency spectrum and sends higher frequencies to the tweeter, and lower frequencies to the woofer. The crossover for this speaker features quality components such as film capacitors to maintain transparency. The speakers crossover has been designed to allow for room placement on a desk, television cabinet, or other location close to a wall. Important design considerations ensure that in such a location the speaker will still sound clean and transparent generally when placing a commercial speaker in such a location you end up with a bloated mid-range, where a lot of the important musical information resides. The mid-woofer is ported with a tuning frequency of ~40hz. The rounded entry result in low air-turbulence and thus no annoying port-chuffing noises. The port is placed on the front of the baffle to again allow placement close to a rear wall. The speakers present a nominal 8ohm load, with a sensitivity of ~87db which makes them easy to drive with any small to moderate sized amplifier. These speakers use drivers from the prestige range offered by SEAS. Their drivers are developed and manufactured in Norway. The mid-woofer is a 6.5inch alloy cone L18RNXP (H1224). This revision of the driver features a new cone profile that is more rigid and has lower distortion than previous iterations. The tweeter is a 1inch aluminium dome 27TBFC/G (H1212) renowned for a a low resonant frequency, low distortion, and smooth frequency response (both on and off axis), making it a pleasure to listen to. The cabinets are made from a composite of MDF, plywood, and chipboard, with epoxy stiffening. This results in a cabinet requiring a greater amount of energy to excite the panels and have them resonate. The speaker has a very neutral sound, free of audible colorations from the cabinet. The speakers are veneered with bookmatched jarrah veneer from Western Australia, and are finished tastefully with multiple coats of wipe on satin polyurethane. This results in a beautiful natural appearance; the photos really don't do it justice. The roundovers you can see are a full 32mm radius! The veneer work here isn't perfect (please see the pictures) but the overall gestalt is stunning. Each speaker features a terminal cup with sturdy binding posts. These accept bare wire, banana plugs, or spades. Dimensions Height: 435mm (including feet) Width: 204mm Depth: 271mm (including grill) A genuine Bargain here guys.
  2. Item: Zaph L18RNX low baffle-step speaker Location: Parramatta Sydney Price: $450 (half the price I paid) Item Condition: Some marks and a ding Otherwise Very Good (See Photos) Reason for selling: Too Big Ironically Extra Info: I bought these wonderful speakers a while ago.

  3. Item: Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 12mm F2.0 Lens Location: Sydney - Parramatta Price: $500 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Using my 12-40mm Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: This a stunning little lens. I used it more than any lens when I had my silver O-MD EM-5. I love shooting wide and this lens is just the bomb. The shots look amazing but it's so compact. Has excellent reviews and I'm only selling as it looks and feels too small on the larger body I'm using now. I'd recommend this on any smaller Olympus or Panasonic body. The quality is superior to the 12-40mm. As a side note, I got many comments about my camera when using this, it really looks great on a nice body. Aussie stock. Fantastic value.

  4. So cool. This is properly commercial grade isn't it, as opposed to the other single group La Marzocco?
  5. Item: Panasonic Leica DG Summilux 25mm F1.4 ASPH Lens Micro 4/3 Location: Sydney - Parramatta Price: $460 Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Bought a 25mm f1.2 Zuiko Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: A beautiful lens, considering it's size and weight it's just exceptional value. You would honestly assume the photo's are from a full frame camera. It's a 50mm equivalent lens. In a moment of weakness I bought the new Olympus 25mm so there is no point in having both, even though this is half the size of the new one. I took these shots with the new one but they would look identical if I used this instead. A very well reviewed lens and at $460, it should be in your arsenal.

  6. Item: OLYMPUS M Zuiko Digital ED 75mm f1.8 Lens Location: Sydney - Parramatta Price: $390 firm Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Bought a 45mm 1.2 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: I love love love this lens but I don't get to use it. The photos I've taken with this look like they've been taken on a full frame camera. Buttery smooth bokeh. It focuses nice and close for tightly cropped face shots, eyes etc. It's a great portrait lens and would also be great for detail shots. Plenty of reviews online. It's so small, a real advantage of Micro 4/3 lenses over full frame. Carry it in a small camera bag and you won't notice. I have a bunch of lenses for my O-MD so I'm trimming off 3 or 4 lenses, which will still leave me with 4. Australian stock.

  7. Item: LEICA 24mm Elmarit-M 2.8 Asph Lens + Brightline Viewfinder Location: Sydney - Parramatta Price: $3000 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not Using Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: I bought this lens about 18yrs ago, it was basically a new lens. I have hardly used it over the years as my standard go to lens was my 35mm Summicron (Recently Sold). Anyway, this was always a dream lens for me and I still feel that 24mm is the sweet spot for wide angle photography. You can capture stunning landscapes, architecture, and high impact environmental portraits with this baby. I love using it indoors to capture a moment that includes the room setting. The lens works and performs like new. The only sign of wear is a little bit of brassing on the focus ring. The focus action and glass are perfect. This lens also has obvious advantages when used on APSC sensor cameras including some Leica digital cameras. I will include a genuine Leica 55mm UV filter, very valuable. I will also include in this sale, a 24mm brightline viewfinder. These sell online for $400 or more. I am including it because the hotshoe mount is cracked and coming away from the viewfinder. A little glue will re-set it, however due to this I decided to add it in at no extra cost. This makes for a very attractive package for the asking price so the price is fixed. Please contact me for any further questions. Inspection is welcome. Thanks for looking. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  8. Item: Leica M6 0.72 Body Location: Sydney Parramatta Price: $3000 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: I bought this camera from a mature owner while working at Teds Cameras in Sydney about 20yrs ago and have owned it ever since. I believe it's a 1996 model so it was only about 4yrs old when I bought it. I've used it sparingly over the years and it shows. It has no major wear visible other than some light brassing on some of the edges. No dents or scratches at all. The Leica M-Series cameras were always the ultimate camera for me and I still feel the same, I've never had as much joy using any other 35mm camera. I love rangefinder cameras much more than SLR cameras, the users view is never interrupted and you can see outside the field of view with any lens 35mm plus. If you are keen on film photography the Leica M-Series is where it's at IMHO. The lenses have a quality that can't easily be described, yes they are sharp but they have a 'look' about them that I haven't found on an SLR system. It is wonderful with wide lenses as the limiting factor of the mirror is removed allowing for low distortion, sharp and contrasty images. Of course those interested in this camera will already be aware of it's heritage and unique capabilities, as well as it's collectibility. I have a 24mm aspherical lens also for sale separately. I have resisted selling this outfit for many years but alas I feel it's the right time for me now and I hope it brings someone else joy like it has me. It has been unused for some time but was stored in a dry area. I live in a unit that has no damp issues so there is not even the smell of mould on this camera. I don't believe it needs a service but a fussy buyer may want to have it serviced just to have it 'as new' mechanically. Inspection is welcome. Please feel free to ask questions. Price is firm.

  9. Item: RICOH GRIII + Extra Battery + Leather Case Location: Sydney - Parramatta Price: 1000.00 Item Condition: MINT Reason for selling: MENTALLY UNSTABLE (Not being used) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: This is my Fourth GR camera, my first being in the film days. For me, Ricoh has nailed the needs of a street photographer in making the GR - - Genuinely small and pocketable. (Unlike my other fave, the Fuji X100 series) - 28mm lens (such an immersive focal length for ideal environmental portraiture and urban landscapes) - APSC sensor (More than ample low light ability, resolution and dynamic range) - Indistinguishable results compared to an SLR, the lens is that good I'm selling this as I use it for travel and am not planning a trip for another year at least, so it will sit unused in a draw. I have only used this very lightly and it presents as new, it has been babied sitting in the softest case (A genuine super soft leather case I shipped in, these cases are handmade and unique, designed for the GR) I also bought another genuine Ricoh battery. I bought it from dcxpert on eBay. dcxpert is the name of the eBay store owned by C.R Kennedy, the Australian distributor of Ricoh cameras, so it is 100% Aussie stock, I will include the receipt of purchase. Price is firm at this stage as I would be happy to keep this and I think it represents very good value especially with the added extras. I will include postage for free as it's not a large item. It comes with the original box. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
