  1. Item: NAD D7050 Digital Amplifier and Bowers & Wilkins CM5 S2 bookshelf speakers w. B&W stands Location: Surry Hills NSW, close to Central Station Price: $2000 (prefer to sell together, but can discuss separating) - happy to make a donation to SN if they sell via the site! Item Condition: Amp: very good condition, recently serviced by Len Wallis Audio with brand new power supply installed. Speakers in excellent condition with only minor / hairline swirls visible, as are the stands. Reason for selling: Rearranging our sound situation, for reasons of space Payment Method: Pickup - cash preferred Extra Info: Amp was purchased new from Addicted to Audio in 2016, speakers were purchased from another SN member at the same time. Neither have been driven hard, mostly used for TV/movies and a bit of music while working. It's a great compact system, and should go to a good home! Also have the original box, manual / booklet & packaging for the speakers, and two sets of spikes for the stands (different lengths). We're a no-pets / non-smoking household, so no rogue fur or smells are attached to these. Amplifier info from NAD site: https://nadelectronics.com/product/d-7050-direct-digital-network-amplifier/ "Defying all expectations of what traditional amplifiers can do, the NAD D 7050 is an incredibly versatile product that offers audio excellence like never before. With the inclusion of Apple AirPlay, the D 7050 is one simple yet expansive package. You’ll now have a state-of-the-art audio system in a stylish and compact package that fits anywhere in your home. Wireless access is universal as the D 7050 also supports Bluetooth® aptX® for high-fidelity point-to-point streaming without a network. A premium headphone amplifier output with a high quality volume control is also included for your personal listening. Employing technologies such as DirectDigital™ ensures a stellar performance void of noise and distortion. From downloads and streaming to instant access to all the music in the world, the D 7050 is a wondrous amplifier that frees your digital music library." Speaker info from Stereophile review: https://www.stereophile.com/content/bowers-amp-wilkins-cm5-loudspeaker "The B&W CM5 touched me in a unique way. With every recording I played, this neutral, dynamic speaker revealed layers of detail that let me hear into the recording process, but in a way that made it easy to forget about that process, kick back, and enjoy the music. Just as paradoxically, its high level of resolution let me differentiate among great, good, and not-so-good recordings, but in a way that didn't lessen my enjoyment of music that had been poorly recorded. If I had to, I could live with this affordable bookshelf model as my only loudspeaker. I can't remember the last time I said that about another speaker in the USD$1500/pair price region. A tremendous achievement by Bowers & Wilkins." Photos:
  2. Item: 15" MacBook Pro Retina (Late 2013), 1TB SSD, 16GB memory, 2.6GHz Core i7, spare charger Location: Surry Hills NSW - close to Central Station Price: $1350 inc. GST (and a $50 donation to StereoNet if sold through the site!) Item Condition: Very good, well cared for, had a brand new keyboard/trackpad/battery two years ago; only minor burrs to edge of metal body, & wear to rubber gasket around screen where you open it; missing two screws from bottom. Includes all original packaging, plus an extra charger as well - one for home, one for the office!

It's still running well, has been updated to the most recent version of OS X Mojave (10.14.6) since I took the screen shot - because I work as a photographer, I wanted a bit more memory & speed for large batch processing of images. If you have any questions or would like more images let me know! Pick up in Sydney preferred - I'm right near Central Station in Surry Hills. I can include a GST receipt if needed - and happy to make a donation to StereoNet as well! Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. Item: WD MyBook Pro 12TB Two-Bay Thunderbolt 2 / USB3 RAID Storage Location: Surry Hills, NSW (right near Central station) Price: $750 Item Condition: Very Good / Excellent Reason for selling: Have upgraded for more storage space Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Super fast, high capacity storage for your Mac or PC - store huge amounts of video or image files, and access them quickly with a striped RAID array and high speed 7200 RPM server-grade drives. This unit is just over 3 years old, and has never missed a beat - I just needed more space, so I've upgraded! Was $1350 when new, so grab a bargain while you can. Pickup in Surry Hills (near Central) preferred. Additional info from the WD site: The My Book Pro 12TB (2 x 6TB) Two-Bay Thunderbolt 2 RAID Array from WD comes with two WD Black 7200 rpm hard drives that are pre-configured in RAID 0 to deliver a transfer rate up to 435 MB/s. It sports a dual-core Intel Xeon processor and two hot-swappable bays. The drives are formatted in HTFS and offer a total capacity of 12TB for your Mac system. You can reformat the drives to use the My Book Pro with a Windows system or configure them into a hardware RAID 1 or JBOD. When configured into RAID 1, you can safely and redundantly store your 4K videos, high-definition images, and 3-D renderings as well as interactive and data-intensive projects on the My Book Pro. To keep up with the fast transfer rates, WD has outfitted it with two Thunderbolt 2 ports, which offer a data bandwidth of 20 Gb/s and the ability to daisy chain up to six devices. Additionally, it includes a micro-B to Type-A USB 3.0 cable that connects to the rear of the My Book Pro to support the two USB 3.0 ports in front, so you can charge and sync smartphones, tablets, and cameras. The WD My Book Pro 12TB (2 x 6TB) Two-Bay Thunderbolt 2 RAID Array operates using 100-240 VAC at 50-60 Hz. Included with this array is a Thunderbolt 2 cable, a USB 3.0 cable, and a power supply. Offers performance with the combination of Thunderbolt 2, WD Black drives, and hardware RAID: Thunderbolt 2 - supports up to 20 Gb/s data-transfer rate; daisy chain up to six additional Thunderbolt devices with no impact on throughput speed WD Black internal 7200 rpm drives - designed for creative professionals, experts, and users with high-performance requirements Hardware RAID - My Book Pro handles RAID processing, so there's no impact on your computer's CPU performance Connect up to six devices in a Thunderbolt daisy-chain for an optimized single-cable workflow with 4K monitors, additional storage devices, and peripherals USB 3.0 compatibility for use with non-Thunderbolt systems Centralize your important files - aggregate all your digital content to open up storage space on your computer Suitable for backup - protects your files with Apple Time Machine, which provides system-level protection Storage capacity - with up to 12TB of capacity, you can save and protect all your photos, videos, music, and important documents in one safe place Easy to set up, easy to use - My Book Pro is pre-formatted for Mac OS X, so it's ready to use right out of the box. The array can also be easily reformatted to NTFS for Windows users Hardware RAID - because RAID processing is handled by My Book Pro, data bottlenecks are reduced and throughput is improved WD Drive Utilities - you can manage RAID configurations, run drive diagnostics, and format the drives User serviceable system - no tools required to replace or upgrade drives Pictures:

I've done my best to describe everything as accurately as possible, but naturally I'm happy to take questions about specific items if more detail is needed. 2x 600EX-RT plus the ST-E3 RT Controller & all packaging, cases for each flash plus controller, filter packs & a Sto-Fen Omnibounce as well - $900 Condition: all excellent, well cared for and not used as much as I thought I would.

Let me know if you’re interested in anything, or if you'd like more details / photos, etc! (I can't take down the photos of things that have sold, apparently.) Pickup in Surry Hills (right by Central Station) preferred; reasonable offers will be considered, but unreasonable offers may not get a response...! Apartment not included. Pictures:
  5. Just an update on this (since someone asked in a private message) - the F1 Chrono sold, but the Carrera is still available currently. I daresay I'll regret selling it, it's a beautiful watch, but I have my eye on something else at the moment...! Also, the Carrera has just recently had a full service / overhaul by a top watchmaker here in Sydney, so it's running in tip-top form at present. That being the case I think $1800 is a very fair price for it! I have all the original packaging with it, as well as the original strap and another rally-style perforated one (used) like the one currently on it. All the straps are from Tag Heuer, not aftermarket. Here's a more recent photo, too - I was playing around with some new lights.
  6. I've just reduced the prices of both of these a little, perhaps they'll tempt someone...!
  7. Hi mate - dimensions as follows: Filing cabinet: 915w x 465d x 710h. Storage cupboard: 900w x 460d x 2000h.
  8. Item: Steelco Tambour Roller Door Stationary Cabinet Location: Surry Hills NSW Price: $250 (reasonable offers considered, though!) Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Moved offices, no longer have space Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: Big, solid professional units - not Ikea! Pictures: For sale in Surry Hills (it's a bit heavy to ship!), reasonable offers considered. Lockable, keys included.
  9. Just FYI, I would consider (reasonable!) offers on either of these as well. I'd rather they go to a good home than have to fight the Gumtree battle!
