  1. Further information: One of Audioquest's best speaker cables. Don't pay just over $25k AUD but approx. 22% of that price. These sound wonderful and are a definite step up from the Redwood model having twice their PSS(Perfect silver surface)conductors. An added bonus is that these cables have been fitted with superior performing "cold wielded" silver plated spade lugs(normally only found only on their flagship model). "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, " These cables are the genuine. (I had Audioquest USA(via Oz distributor Amber tech) convert to bi-wire(copy of invoice can be provided)). There is minor braid piling as per normal wear. The DBS covers are a slightly "sticky" as per their age. If shipping is required that is an extra cost but I will pay for insurance. PayPAL Fees are additional if paying by that method. Photos:
  2. Further information: 10cc was a very unique. They had their own studio where they engineered and produced their own and others records so sound quality was up there with the best of them. The band, after serving as the backing band for two successful Neil Sedaka albums, evolved into 10cc Graham Gouldman was a hit songwriter for bands such as The Yardbirds(For Your Love), The Hollies(Bus Stop), Herman Hermits (No Milk Today). Eric Stewart had already been in a successful band(Wayne Fontana + The Mindbenders) and sung lead on the Mindbenders hit A Groovy Kind of Love(later covered by Phil Collins). After 10cc Stewart collaborated with one James Paul McCartney extensively in the 1980's, playing on or co-writing songs for McCartney's solo albums, Tug of War(1982), Pipes of Peace(1983), Give My Regards to Broad Street(1984) and Press To Play(1986). He also produced the 2nd solo album for ABBA's Agnetha Faltskog. Lol Creme and Kevin Godley became successful in the charts with their own albums but it was in the field of music videos that they really pioneered. They created memorable videos for Status Quo ("Something 'bout You Baby I Like"), The Police ("Every Breath You Take", "Synchronicity II", "Wrapped Around Your Finger"), Culture Club ("Victims"), Duran Duran ("Girls on Film", "A View to a Kill"), Herbie Hancock ("Rockit"), Go West ("We Close Our Eyes"), Peter Gabriel and Kate Bush ("Don't Give Up"), Frankie Goes to Hollywood ("Two Tribes", "The Power of Love"), Sting ("If You Love Somebody Set Them Free", "Fields of Gold"), Toyah ("Thunder in the Mountains"), Visage ("Fade to Grey"), George Harrison ("When We Was Fab"), Lou Reed ("No Money Down"), Wang Chung ("Everybody Have Fun Tonight"), and Yes ("Leave It"), among many others, up to Godley's video for The Beatles' 1996 single, "Real Love", from the Beatles Anthology.) This album shows of the diversity and talent of this band. 10cc - The Original Soundtrack - Mastered in Japan from the original analog tapes. - Mint condition Wonderful reviews:- "Another wonderful DSD transfer by Hitoshi Takiguchi at Universal Mastering Studios in Tokyo, Japan. I am still astonished at the thought that Universal UK sent them an actual master tape - but that's what this disc sounds like it's made from. Yes, it was recorded in 10cc's own studio - but the sound is massive, detailed, authoritative - BIG." "This is definitely one of the best sounding shm-sacd's. I never heard any redbook cd-version, so I can't compare with them. But this one sounds clean, crisp, detailed. I would recommend this disc to everyone. Even non-10cc fans should give this one a chance. You will be amazed by the sound quality! I have seen many 5 star rated discs, that not sound half as good as this one. If you haven't bought any of the Japanese shm-sacd's yet, start with this one (+ The Who)! This is demo-material. Many friends were skeptical about high-end hi-fi and superiority of sacd to normal cd's and lossless files. But after hearing this one, they all want to throw away their ipod-docks, and buy a traditional hi-fi system with sacd-player. Highly recommended, a must have!" Note : SACD : this only play on a SACD equipped player. Photos:
  3. Hi Dave, I'll take this if still available. Pickup is fine, I'm in Eastwood. Regards Bruce

  7. " I will likely move on to a DAN D F12 " What product is this please?
  8. If I don't receive anyone interested in the lot I will be in touch.
  9. Further information: Note : SACD CD only and only play on a SACD equipped player. 10cc - The Original Soundtrack - Mastered in Japan from the original analog tapes. - Mint condition Wonderful reviews:- "Another wonderful DSD transfer by Hitoshi Takiguchi at Universal Mastering Studios in Tokyo, Japan. I am still astonished at the thought that Universal UK sent them an actual master tape - but that's what this disc sounds like it's made from.

Sold - The Byrds Greatest Hits - Excellent condition Review:- "This SACD was one of the first SACDs that I bought. One commentator on AudioAsylum stated that this is sonically the worst SACD. I don't concur. The treble is a little bright and not as smooth as I would prefer, but the clarity and dynamics are OK. There's other rock albums that I'm far more disappointed. I give this SACD more rotation than more than half my SACDs. Since I owned the album, I appreciate the extra bonus tracks. It's not a reference SACD, but it sure brings back memories." Sold - The Bangles Greatest Hits - Good condition. The outer cardboard sleeve has some wear. Some people don't like this transfer but others..... "The sound stage is absolutely huge and the sound is crystal clear. Compared to the red book version the SACD is a massive improvement." Photos:
  10. Further information: Less than 25% of the RRP. Fantastic sounding cables. The Wildwood have twice the PSS(Perfect silver surface)conductors of the Redwoods. These cables have the top "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, " These lugs are far superior to the 1000 series connectors commonly used with this cable. I had Audioquest USA(via Oz distributor Amber tech) convert to bi-wire. They they replaced all spade lugs, covers and packaging. There is minor braid piling as per normal wear. The DBS is 72v but the covers are a slightly "sticky" as per their age. If shipping is required that is an extra cost but I will pay for insurance. PayPAL Fees are additional if paying by that method. Photos:
  11. Further information: Purchase Pending: Awaiting Payment I have upgraded to Synergistic Research Orange and the following five(5)fuses are now excess. The fuses are offered in one job lot. If you only want one or two values then I advise you to buy the lot and resell those you don't want. I won't respond to individual fuse request to buy at this stage. Price includes shipping and insurance. There is some wear marks on outside of the HiFi Tuning and Black from putting them into tight spaces but the Blue are in very good condition. All are small, slow blow fuses. Fuses included:- 1A - Hi Fi Tuning Supreme 2A - Synergistic Research Black 1A, 2A and 4A - Synergistic Research Blue Photos:
  12. Snake, I have the above Crystal Cable Ultra power cord for sale if you are interested. I withdrew it at the time as I thought I may need it. It's a great cable and for a very fair price. If you wish to convert to Au power plug then that is a very easy option for you to do. Just unscrew the US plug housing, ID the cables connected to the marked Earth, Live, Neutral, of the plug. Unscrew cables from US plug and fit AU plug using the correct E,L and N markings.
  13. Further information: Amazing headphone amp. Considered one of the best. Bought from Australian distributor. Output Transformer-Less (OTL) and Output Capacitor-Less (OCL) Headphone Amplifier. The HPA-5000 is Allnic Audio’s Output Transformer-less (OTL) and Output Capacitor-less (OTC) stereo headphone amplifier. The HPA-5000 utilizes a true balanced Positive-Negative cancellation circuit.

"The Allnic HPA-5000 is one of the best headphone amps I have ever heard, period. Just about every low impedance headphone available is driven to its full potential and there is little room for improvement; it’s that close to perfection." Have original packaging so can ship.

  14. Further information: Reduced to $200. That includes postage. Bargin! Probably one of the best and cheapest improvements to the sound of your Home Theatre is to upgrade your centre speaker cable. This cable greatly lifts the performance of the centre speaker(the most important speaker in your HT setup). 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. Note :This is a Single cable suitable for a centre HT speaker. Photos:
  15. Meridian 508.20 CD player alone is a great player( yes, I have one), and in my opinion, trounces most current players at twice the asking price. GLWTS.
