  1. Item: Dynaudio “Image of Australia” 1 MkII Bookshelf Speakers Location: Perth Price: $375 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not using Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: In the mid to late 1990s SCAN Audio in Melbourne had a license from Dynaudio in Denmark to build Dynaudio branded speakers. They were highly regarded (still are) and built to very high standards using premium components and drivers (I believe the IOA MkIIs have Vifa drivers). The Image 1 was the smallest in the range. These are in great condition and sound amazing. I have owned Dynaudio Audience speakers and these sound much better IMO. These little gems don't come on to the second hand market very often! I have the original boxes/packaging and owners manual. SPECIFICATIONS Woofer: 130 mm Voicecoil: 25 mm Tweeter: 25 mm Recommended power: 20 to 60 watts Sensitivity: 88dB Frequency response: 58 to 22,000 Hz Impedence: 8 Ohms Dimensions: 350 x 170 x 245 mm Weight: 6 kg each Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Thanks for the replies. Yes $350 sounds about right. I have previously owned the Dynaudio Audience 42s and I honestly believe these are quite a bit better. And yes I am pretty sure they are Vifa drivers.
  3. Here are the specs: Woofer: 130 mm Voicecoil: 25 mm Tweeter: 25 mm Recommended power: 20 to 60 watts Sensitivity: 88dB Frequency response: 58 to 22,000 Hz Impedence: 8 Ohms Dimensions: 350 x 170 x 245 mm Weight: 6 kg each
  4. Here are some pics. Just gave these little guys another whirl. Maybe I will keep them. :)
  5. Thanks. Mine are the later mkII version. I will upload some pics later today.
  6. I have a pair of rare Image of Australia 1 MkII bookshelf speakers that I should probably move on as I am not using them. I am looking for further information and some advice as to their value. There is scant information available online. From what I can gather SCAN Audio in Melbourne had a license from Dynaudio build Dynaudio branded speakers in the 1990s. I also believe the 1s were the smallest in the range. They really are lovely little bookshelf speakers. Any information on them would be greatly appreciated.

  8. On 6th April I moved this amp to my art studio shortly after listing it. It has had perhaps 40 hours of use since and has not once crackled as described in the listing. I now strongly suspect it was a connection/interconnect issue and there is absolutely nothing wrong with the amp.
  9. Item: Musical Fidelity A3 SE Dual Mono Integrated Amplifier Location: Perth Price: $725 Item Condition: Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash Extra Info: For sale is a legendary English made Musical Fidelity A3 hifi amplifier. This is the highly sought after special edition that has 24 carat gold trim. It came out as a later release to the original model which hit the market in 2000. The amplifier originally received a five star review from What Hifi and was also mentioned in their annual awards in 2000. It has two separate amplifiers for each stereo channel and boasts a has a very high quality phonostage (Moving Coil and Moving Magnet). This amp produces stunning detail and clarity. It comes with a working remote control and the original instruction manual. The only very minor issue is a slight amount of low level crackling which comes and goes only very occasionally. You can listen to it for hours and it won't happen. Perhaps it needs new caps or just an internal clean. It is priced accordingly. SPECIFICATIONS Power output: 85 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.008% Input sensitivity: 0.35mV (MC), 3.5mV (MM), 300mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 72dB (MC), 80dB (MM), 96dB (line) Dimensions: 440 x 95 x 400mm Weight: 13kg Pictures:
  10. Item: Kimber Kable 8PR - 2 x 1.25 m lengths Location: Perth Price: $55 Item Condition: Reason for selling:not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are high quality interconnects which I use with one of my systems. These are short (one is 130 and the other 120 cm) with bare wire at one end and banana plugs at the other end. They are in perfect working condition but I have no need for two pairs. Pictures:
  11. Thanks for the response and the information. I gather the company still exists as there is a web site (www.apature.com) - albiet a very old looking one (copyright 1996 to 2002). They don't appear to be distributed in Australia anymore.
  12. I have a pair of Apature Accusound Silver Twin 4 + 4 Speaker Cables (yes - Apature - not Aperture) and I am intrigued by them. They are US made from probably the mid 90s. They are ugly thick grey cables with Puresonic claw connectors at one end and no-name banana plugs at the other. I can't find any reference to them online and am interested to know if anyone on here has had any experience with them. I have to say they are very decent sounding.
  13. Hi 'Nutz, I missed that post when I did first did a search but have now located your post/specs. Many thanks!
  14. I don't suppose anyone has the specs for the Audio Definition Duets? I can't find any information on them and I own a pair.
