  1. Hi mate. Yeah, I have his number. Last spoke to him around 2015 and haven't bothered him since because he seemed to be winding down. Apparently no. I'll look him up and say g'day. Cheers Cam
  2. Is Clifford still around? I would have thought he'd have kicked back and retired by now. Wonderful man.
  3. Hi Dennis. I just meant I don't listen to opera. The Creek has a good amount of punch, with 120w per channel, with passive/active preamp switching and adjustable gain (see photos). I don't think it would have any issues at all, personally. Not sure if anyone looking at this listing has had any experience with orchestral/organ music on this amp, but if so, comment.
  4. Beautiful speakers. Wonderful sound. I have a pair of these, also in Eucalyptus, and absolutely love them. Sad that someone is selling them, but good luck anyway. SOMEBODY BUY THESE!
  5. He is. Last time I saw him was at his house in Warwick. I used to go to his place in Claremont every Thursday night for years and just hang out for hours.. I have a very long history with Clifford. And yes, what a gentleman. He built me a two box pre-amp a while back which I have never used. Was going to sell it on here but I don't think many people know what awesome stuff he used to build. World class for sure. Good memories.
  6. Item: Creek Audio Destiny 2 Integrated Amplifier PRICE DROP Location: Perth Price: $1500 ono Item Condition: Very Good. I can't find a blemish on it. Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have had this amp since about 2012, and it was in my system until I upgraded in about 2015. Since then, it has been sitting in the box in storage. I was very reluctant to sell it because it is such an awesome piece of kit. It sounds wonderful, and hasn't had any issues driving anything I have hooked up to it. I would have happily kept this in my system if the upgraditis hadn't got me. Then, for years, I was happily keeping it in storage, just in case I ever got a place with room enough for two systems. This is not fair to the amp. It needs to be free and sing! Whether rock, hip-hop, jazz, blues (no opera), this amp just makes you want to listen. I agree with the sentiments in the Stereophile review of the Destiny 1 below. This mirrors how I felt and still feel about the Destiny 2. Beautiful, punchy bass, controlled, crisp highs. Nothing about listening to this amp made me think I wads missing out on anything.

And Techradar's review of the Destiny 2 Creek Destiny 2 review | TechRadar WWW.TECHRADAR.COM The Destiny 2 amplifier is a worthy contender in the upmarket stakes and a sublime performer to boot I bought the D2 from Clifford D'Souza of Audio Synergy here in Perth, and it appears (see photos) that he gave me the amp in a Destiny 1 box. I never noticed, however, because I wasn't listening to the box. I have never used the remote, but got it out of the box to test it prior to listing. It works to bring the amp out of standby mode, for volume up/down and switching between active and passive modes, but I cannot get it to switch inputs. Perhaps there needs to be something plugged into the input for it to work with the remote,; I don't know. The box, as pictured, has seen better days. I am sure it would be just fine for transport, at your risk. Local pick up would be preferred.

  7. Item: Ortofon Rondo Bronze MC Cartridge Location: Perth Price: $350 shipped within Australia - edited due to error in original pricing Item Condition: Immaculate Reason for selling: I haven't used it Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this cartridge from @Powerglide in September 2018 with about 500 hours on it. I have used it exactly zero times, so it remains at around 500 hours. The cartridge itself is in fantastic condition, in original packaging, with an inspection letter from when PG purchased and all original Ortofon gear including new head shell wires and tools. I always thought I would use it at some point, but I have not. In fact, I have never even taken it out of its case. Seems wrong to make a great cart like this sit on the sidelines, so I have made the decision to let it go to someone who will actually use it. Lots of info about these cartridges on the net.

  8. Maybe he's just showing us that he's got one. Not for sale, but look! 😂
  9. I agree. I have, in the last month, got an OAD CP1 pre and UF1 power amp and think they sound magnificent. I haven't tried mixing the combo; it just works. Not sure what the comment about mismatch means. Somebody is gonna get lucky here. These come up rarely, and with good reason. Unless wanton upgradeitis hits, these babies are life changers and end-game for many. GLWTS mate.

  11. Item: Grant Fidelity (Jungson) MXLR-1 balanced interconnects 1m Location: Perth Price: $230 + shipping ($5 or so) Item Condition: Very good. Reason for selling: Too many cables Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: It's this, but shorter and balanced. It's easy to wax on about cables, and what they'll do to your system, but I won't. These are lovely cables. There, 'nuff said. Can ship anywhere. Photos:
  12. Ladies and gentlemen, this is a setup that has been painstakingly constructed. The new value of the upgrades alone (and let's face it, it's metal and Delrin, so isn't going to wear out) is about equivalent to the asking price here. Come on, give this baby a new home.
