  1. Further information: One of Tara Labs most successful high end interconnects. Superb performance. Original packaging. Note : these interconnects are not the most flexible cables but there are adjustment options on each connector to ensure that they fit your requirements. Price includes shipping if required. Photos:
  2. Further information: This is a Single cable suitable for centre speaker. Purchased new from Len Wallis audio. RRP $800. Normal wear and tear from use, ie. a bit of pilling of the outside brand, some scratches on one of the end cables covers. The DBS unit is 72v but is one of those older ones that were rubbery so has become a bit "sticky". Gilbraltar was one of the more popular Audioquest speaker cables due to it's bang for buck performance. Shipping if required is included. Photos:
  3. Further information: These speaker cables rarely come up for sale in Australia. This cable had a RRP of $18,400 USD(which equates to $28KAUD) so at my asking price the cables represent great value and a chance to move to a cable that maybe you hadn't considered because of their cost. Initially these cables were a full run but I had Audioquest USA(via Oz distributor Amber tech) convert them to bi-wire. I had thought they would just add two extra connectors, instead they completely replaced all connectors and speaker covers.(hence their excellent condition) and replaced the packing box to boot. There is minor braid piling as per normal wear. The DBS is 72v but the covers are a sligthly "sticky" as per their age. The connectors are the top of the line factory fitted "cold wielded", silver plated spade lugs. "Signature spade lugs (1/4” or 5/16") are also machined from pure C1100 electrolytic copper billet, then direct-plated with an ultrathick layer of silver. To provide a superior connection that ensures structural and electrical integrity, the connection between spade and conductors (as in the WEL interconnects and power cords) is made using AQ’s Cold-Weld System: a combination of high pressure at the point of contact and a paste impregnated with silver. By applying a controlled amount of pressure, the conductor and connector are mechanically made “as one” without the use of heat -- a practically perfect connection, " The Wildwood has twice the PSS(Perfect silver surface)conductors of the Redwoods. I have had both cables and the Wildwoods are a clear and definite increase in performance. https://www.noushouse.com.au/brochures/Audioquest/wildwood.pdf Photos:

  6. This is a bargain. Exceptional player. Don't forget that this player has two functions, ie. can be used as a CD player or as a DAC for playing other external digital mediums. I actually spoke to Audio Research in the USA a few years ago as I had a few questions on their gear. I asked what was the difference between the Dac in this player and the separate Reference DAC(about 20k here). He said essentially they were the same. The stand alone Reference DAC had come out a number of years before the CD9, when they only had the CD only CD8. For the next CD player iteration they decided to combine the two to provide a more desirable and marketable unit. Interestingly the unit has a number of options, eg. upsampling, filters, which can be used during playback for both options. GLWTS.
  7. Looks like the Origin Live Silver 250 Mk II tonearm fitted(longer arm than the Mk I). His link is for a later version of this arm, the Origin Live Silver Mk3A. Hence the confusion. Nice package. GLWTS.
  8. Thankyou for all the positive comments. Always good to save $.
  9. Popped in to JB today and they had quite a deal on some LP's. 2 for $50. Picked up Jeff Lynne's ELO Triple Live album at Wembley, 180g vinyl and includes digital download. Normally this album is $105.00. This album plus a remastered Stones album was just $50 all up, bargain. Link shows a couple of hundred different album titles are part of the promotion. Just depends what is at your local JB...........but looks like you can order online.
