  1. Funny what a quick Google search will reveal. Kudos for the repairs, and GLWS.
  2. I have one to allow me to switch easily to one set of main speakers using either a valve integrated, or 2 high-power class D monoblocks. Well built, very useful bit of kit. GLWS.
  3. Item: Luxman S-RW 808 Floorstanders Location: Central Coast NSW, or Sydney North Shore Price: $250 Item Condition: Excellent for their age Reason for selling: Daughter decided not to take them. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Quite an unusual find. I think they are from the 90's - almost nothing on them on the Net. Very elegant and in really good shape. The wood is pretty much unmarked, and all the edges are surprisingly crisp. All drivers working fine, and they seem to like a little power. I wouldn't be using them in the disco, but they do sound nice and laid back, and have good WAF.... but not, it seems, good DAF (Daughter Acceptance). Anyway, Luxman never made a bad product, so these seem good value at $250. The one reference I could find on the Net: http://www.thevintageknob.org/database/sheets/luxman2/Images/32.html Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  4. Well let's put it this way. I did have some LS50's - very lovely. But I sold them over a year ago. These XQ30's are definitely a very good speaker, with 3 drivers V 2. But they are from a few years earlier, during a period when KEF went "off the radar". But these XQ30's build quality is second to none.
  5. Item: KEF XQ30 in Mahogany - small floorstanders Location: NSW Central Coast, or Sydney Price: $950 Now $900 Item Condition: Flawless, but no boxes Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: And the good news is that they sound at least as as good as they look! Purchased about 5 months back on SNA from yeahpetrus for $1000. I have been using them as a second pair of speakers in my bedroom…….but that really is a waste. So time to move them on. Absolutely mint condition. Sadly no boxes, so whoever buys them will need to pick them up from 2257. Or maybe Sydney North Shore. OR…..I can take them to P&S in some bubble wrap, and you can pay to have them transported.

  6. So you can play Cat Power.........on your CAT power! Amazing beast. GLWS.
  7. Errr.........$750 each....or for both? I assume each?
  8. Item: KEF QX30 floorstanders Location: NSW 2257 Central Coast Price: $950 Item Condition: Mint - but no boxes Reason for selling: Don't really need 4 speakers in the bedroom!

  9. Damn! And some silly person just bought a pair advertised today for $1100....and not so nice as yours! Go figure. Love the pics you took.
  10. Item: Primare A34.2 Stereo Power Amp (Bridgeable) Location: NSW 2257 Price: $1,050 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: See Below Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this from “overjp” in December last year – in fact I have recycled his original pic’s. This really is a very nice stereo power amp putting out 150W / channel into 8 ohms - more than enough, really. However, being a bit “power hungry” it was my intention to find a 2nd (black) A34.2 and use them as bridged mono-blocks. Astoundingly, in that config a single A34.2 will push out over 500W / channel into 8 ohms!! That said, I got a bit impatient, and I found a set of 350W / channel Class D’s at a decent price, so this unit is now surplus. Reselling it for what I paid a few months back – a VERY reasonable $1,050. (For comparison, there is a Silver demo A34.2 on Gumtree now for $2,199! ) Excellent online reviews. Takes both balanced and RCA inputs. Cosmetically perfect unit, as far as I can see. Comes with original box, and all extras – bridging cable, CD instructions, manual, etc. Happy to post if you meet the cost & insurance. OR……pickup from 2257 Central Coast, NSW - or 2071 Killara.

  11. Well.... I can vouch that his OTHER Hugo 2 works fine. Listening to it now.
  12. Hi Tri-K - mighty impressive kit! A few people will be salivating......I'll bet! That said, a tad confusing! Assume a DEQX HDP-3......correct? And if the Tannoys are dual concentric, they'd probably need 4 power amps off the DEQX? So 2 x Benchmark Monos (big black beats at the side, I assume?) So how many Hypex 250 watt mono-blocks?? I'd assume 2...but there seem to be 4 shadows in the cabinet?? Bottom line.....a full kit list would really help. But congrats on the build of those speakers.....Sensational!
  13. I have multiple options. Can also use my tube amp integrated with line out from the HUGO.
  14. Item: Sonic Euphoria Passive Preamp / PLC Location: NSW 2257 but can post @ cost Price: Reduced - $800 to $650 Item Condition: Excellent - bulletproof Reason for selling: Bought Hugo 2 Dac / Pre Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a very rare unit, specially imported several years ago from the US. It's a boutique, handmade PLC that's built like a tank and will never wear out. As it's passive, it doesn't even plug in to the power, and its main parts are 2 switches, a high quality volume control, and 2 tapped, hand-wound transformers. Its primary benefit is that it's absolutely sonically invisible. That said, its a beautifully made unit, and weights about 8kgs. Why so heavy? Because at its core are 2 hand-wound "passive transformers" which are tapped off at various places to provide the stepped volume control. To find out more about how this actually works, I suggest you check out the review at Stereophile.com where they explain this, why it works so well, and give it a rave review. Another benefit of its passive design is that basically there is nothing in it that can break or blow up - it should last forever. It has 4 sets of RCA inputs, 2 sets of volume-controled RCA outputs, and a "Tape Out" RCA pair - unattenuated, I beleive. It comes without a front name tag, as the guy who built these was out of them at the time. It also comes with a brief manual. Review: https://www.stereophile.com/solidpreamps/106sonic/index.html It's been sitting in the cupboard for a year as I'm loathe to sell such a gem. The only reason it's going is I bought a Chord Hugo 2 DAC with a built-in preamp, at 5 times the cost! Time it went to a new homw and got some appreciation. :)Pics are a mix of the unit itself, and some file pics. Pictures:
