  1. True. I have one exactly as this is. Normal power. It also has an aux. power out which I use with a Isotek board for my tv/DVD etc. Very, very effective in picture improvement. Requires another power lead in to use. You can use any power cable with the standard Neutrix connectors, you just change the connectors. I took them off some of the supplied Isotek cables and then attached them to some superior Crystal power cables. GLWTS.
  2. I agree, no negotiation on this price. Love my Velodyne. From a previous discussion we found out that this one was manufactured in 2007. To get the best I suggest getting an Auralex Subdude HT for it to sit on. This measure will "control" the floor shaking(yes even on concrete!) and window rattling that this sub will put out. GLWTS
  3. I have/had Anthem Receivers. Currently use a MRX1120. Never looked at separates but a few years after the 1120 purchase I had the opportunity to purchase a used Anthem A5 5 channel power amp. Certainty took the system to another level. I used it on the centre, sides and rear speakers Front right and left speakers use my stereo amp via HT bypass. The difference is most noticeable via my centre and sides. All are high end versions of my speaker brand so can utilize the benefits that the A5 brings. I also upgraded the centre speaker cable. So I would recommend an upgrade to a better centre speaker plus centre speaker cable upgrade. Then you can take you time looking at one box receivers or separates. I like Anthem and compared single box MRX 1120 to separate two box Marantz. I bought the Anthem MRX1120.
  4. Yes, 11 years old but still a quality sub-woofer that would put most current sub-woofers in the shade with it's performance. Sub-woofers don't change that much in technology unlike receivers. Some of the other stuff is fairly old. The Yamaha is about 6 versions ago. Current is 385, RRP $600, and is one of their basic receivers. Unfortunately receivers have had heaps and heaps of improvement in that time to take advantage of new technology, eg. HDMI standards, bluetooth/wireless, more speakers(ATMOS), interface with smart TV's, smart speakers, , etc etc, so your is not worth much at all. The KEF's are a classic model and quite a lot older, 1986-1996. There are collectors for this model but is all depends on condition. Near mint pair of speakers, both cabinets and the actual speakers is critical for price. Plus with a speaker that old it's crossover may need work(, ie. that's the electronics that divides the sound frequencies between the speakers in the box. KEF is a quality English speaker manufacturer that been around for ages(I bought a pair in 1977). Link to KEF for this model. http://au.kef.com/explore-kef/kef-museum/1980s/reference-series-model-1042-1984-96 Good luck.
  5. The Velodyne DD15 comes supplied with the Digital Drive Accessory Kit. The DD15 was superceded by the DD15 Plus model approx. 7 years ago. The DD15 Plus retails for approx $6,995. Velodyne is one of the premier sub-woofer brands. In fact that's all they make. If you look on the label on the back of the DD15 there will be a label with the date of manufacture and this will affect value. A DD15 Plus was listed yesterday on Gumtree for $4,980, a trade in, and it looks like WestCoast HiFi from the address. So for someone to take an older DD15 you would have to make it quite a bit below that level. Hope this helps.
  6. Agree on the centre speaker upgrade. Found this Vaf user review online:- "Good to see VAF are finally officially making the larger DCXcc center speaker. If you can spare a little extra room and dollars, then definitely skip the DC6 and get one of these instead. It's basically a horizontal DCX and it's bloody sensational. NEVER skimp on the centre-speaker! "
  7. I have the "M" and it is lovely bit of kit. Bloody heavy though so need a good stable rack.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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:
  11. 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.

  13. 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:
