  1. Item: Speakers and Amp Price Range: 1.5-2k Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Looking to put together a starter system for a friend - just speakers and amp to start with (I am lending them a streamer and turntable). Their budget is $1500 but can stretch to $2000 if there's something nice available. I'm thinking something vintage as their preferences lean toward that styling. They are particularly fond of Yamaha NS690s I used to have. Perhaps JBL. An entry level tube amp would be great. Perhaps a second hand Cayin. Would depend on how sensitive the chosen speaker
  2. Item: Tannoy Dual Concentric, any cabinets. Price Range: Depends on Model Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Located in VIC Interested to try some of these out - , 12 or 15". Something like the Cheviolot, Berkeley and Arden look great - so I suppose I'm looking at HPD, but interested to see what's potentially out there.
  3. Further information: Little introduction needed for this one. Fantastic value and performance MC/MM phono stage. Can read plenty about it online. https://6moons.com/audioreviews/raysamuels/f117.html http://www.raysamuelsaudio.com/products/f-117.html Photos:
  4. Also interested in trying something from Rel if there's anything floating around. Cheers
  5. Hi @sthpaul apologies for the delay - missed this while away. It looks to be great value but after some thought I think I'd like to stick with an established brand. It's my first time integrating one with these speakers so think it's easier to go with something tried and tested. Thanks very much for the offer though.

  7. Sounds interesting, what sort of driver does it use? Do you have any photos? Thanks
  8. Further information: Excellent condition with freshly installed Cayin kt88s. Also has NOS 12AX7 Black Plates and Mullard CV4003 Box plates in the preamp. Cayin make Primaluna's amps the similarities in the finish, chassis and circuitry is clear. Has UL/Triode switching via remote. 18 Watts in Triode 40 Watts in Ultralinear Triode/Ultralinear switchable via remote on the fly Built in phono stage Can be rebiased to take EL34's Point to point wiring 15kg and 19kg Shipping wei
  9. Thanks very much for your offer. Sounds great although I'm on the lookout for something powered. Cheers
  10. Item: 12" Subwoofer Price Range: Depends on brand and if it's single or pair. Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Was looking at something like Rythmik, Rel, SVS. Possibly a pair depending on price/availability.
  11. This is just a stab in the dark, and other members might have better solutions to trial first - but have tried a different cartridge? I recently had a weird issue where it was the cart itself causing the issue (despite being properly connected).
  12. WTL: 4x Gold Lion KT88s Would like to experiment with these. If they prove better than the Tung Sol KT120s in my system I'd be open to a swap if interested. I'm located in Melbourne.
