  1. John, Interesting to know. Thankyou. I will double check with Kee as it was she who advised me. Both the speaker and stands are quite heavy. These stands have an angled top plate. Higher at front dropping slightly to the rear. Result, each speaker points slightly upward when facing the listener. The 202's are so nice, great sound. Can't beat those 303's but for this price this is seriously good performance.
  2. I have some 303 leadlined. These 202's have the same family like cabinet/grill finish. I have some 202's with these stands but have different cabinet/grill finish, possibly a different generation. These look better. My 202's also had the tweeters replaced with Focals by the 2nd owner. I had Whatmough refinish the cabinets and adjust the crossover for the new tweeters(Kee''s recommendation). During this work we discovered my 202's were not leadlined but bitumen lined. Who knew. The original owner thought they were leadlined as they are very heavy for their size. Still their performance is exceptional(and as Whatmough said, not far behind the leadlined). These appear to be the leadlined version like my 303s, same finish, same grill design. Tempted. GLWTS.
  3. Item: Audioquest Redwood 8ft Speaker Cables - Bi-Wire, Spades Location: Sydney Price: FURTHER REDUCTION to $4,200(was $5,000) + postage and insurance Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Excess Payment Method: Pickup/Post - Cash, Direct Credit Extra Info: I've further reduced these cables. Opportunity to own high end cables for an absolute bargain price. This is ONLY 26% of the RRP of $16,100 for a 2.5 metre pair here in Australia. I did a direct comparison between Oaks and the Redwoods. Oaks were no slouch but the Redwoods were a complete step up from my Audioquest Gibraltars. The Redwood were more of everything. Think of the Oaks as an evolution with the Redwoods being a revolution. Comparing RRP price. A 2.5 metre pair of Oaks is $5,100, the Redwoods, $16,100. I bought these a few years ago from a Audioquest retailer in the States. These were his own cables. His Audioquest area manager verified their originality(see extract of email below). Last year one of these cables had an issue so both were returned via Ambertech(Australian Distributor) under their lifetime warranty. Audioquest replaced one cable and fitted new spades to the original cable(I have correspondence). The new cable has a smooth finish DBS finish pack while the older cable has the previous slightly rubbery finish, both are 72v DBS and performance is unaffected. Can purchase a new DBS pack from Audioquest if you want. Some scratches on one of the cable covers(see attached). No original packaging. Pictures:
  4. Item: Sold PS AUDIO P10 REGENERATOR Location: Sydney Price: $4,000 (RRP $7,995) + $300 for aftermarket cable + isolation discs(if desired)($4,300 with cable + damping discs) Item Condition: 8/10 - Some cosmetic marks on top of unit after leaving plastic on it for some time. Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup Only at this time as it is a heavy beast - Cash, Direct Credit Extra Info: Approx. 4 years old. Significant system improvement when employed. 9 AU outlets(3 for high current components) Has a number of settings(6) that you can choose from that will influence the sound in a subtle way Provides surge protection. Comes with a remote(never used) Have a DanA Digital 1.5m after market power lead(just some tape on it as outer flex cover was coming away near IEC plug) if you want it for an extra $300. Also included with the cable is pack of Les Davis Audio Damping Discs($100rrp). 16 discs in the box, so enough for 2 components(recommended two under each footer). This cable originally had a RRP of $550. I upgraded the power plug to a Furutec G AU power plug(RRP $145 alone). It has an Oyaide IEC which is copper not brass, so better conductivity. The cable is Aussie made and is a great performer. I have upgraded. I had about five and this is my last of these cables. The new P15 model is now RRP $11,999 with a recent price rise so this represents good value. Have original double Box packaging but at this stage want a local sale as this is very heavy, ie. 38kgs.

  5. Item: FS: Ingress Engineering CAM Special Edition Roller Blocks - 3 Sets of 3 Location: Sydney Price: $190(includes postage) Item Condition: 8/10 Reason for selling: Excess Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Post - Direct Credit Extra Info: These were a special edition by Mike at Ingress Engineering.

  6. Item: Ingress Engineering 7075 Roller Blocks Level 3v2 - Set of 4 - Location: Sydney Price: $140(includes postage) - Awaiting Payment Item Condition: 8/10 Reason for selling: upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Post - Direct Credit Extra Info: Had these for a year or so. Was so impressed with their effect I ordered some of their "special" lowercost/effect rollerblocks(see additional ad) for less critical components. I then tried some Finite Element options and have now progressed to those. Paid $256CAN including postage for set of 4. Pictures:

    Withdrawn from sale

    Wow, What model are these? Do I see four sets of binding posts per speaker? How does that work? Need four speaker cable runs?
  9. Thanks. Wow, that's great. I know Kee Whatmough(wife of the late Colin). Have had many dealings with her over the many years I have owned their speakers. The reason I asked is that I have some 303's but re-coned by the original owner(who has an audio business). These were his home speakers. He reckoned they were an improvement. The speakers were personally supplied by Colin to the original owner with a matching centre speaker(which I didn't require). Colin autographed them for good measure in gold pen. Great speakers, great sound, very heavy. 303 Leadline with new original drivers would be great value at your asking price for the whole lot. Tempting to have some originally spec 303's but where would I put them! The sub is the Typhoon model from a few years back. GLWTS
  10. I too noticed the partial nudity. Question about the 303's. Are these the leadlined version? What were the drivers replaced with, brand/model? I was led to believe the original drivers have not been available for some time. Was the work done by Whatmough? Thanks.

    Audio research ls27 tube upgrade

    Hi, Tried a pair of Electro-harmonix 6H30Pi, in my Ref 75SE and then used these two in my Ref 6(it has 6 x 6H30Pis) Found these Gold Plate produced a slightly warmer/basser shade than the AR supplied units. Good but I preferred the AR supplied tube sound. I bought four EH's, sold the two I used. Bought them from Amptubes in Qld. Have two brand new EH 6H30Pis, matched and unused. $65 for the pair. I'm in Sydney. PM me if you want them.
  12. These look rather interesting. Have speakers with double binding posts so in the market and these would be a great solution. I could only find one version of this brand of cable currently on sale. Is yours a different higher spec earlier version? If so what are the differences between your cable and the version currently on sale? Thankyou.
  13. Are these DD models or the newer DD+ models? Do you have some pics?
