  1. Further information: I have for sale my Creek OBH-21 SE headphone amp. This is the SE - special edition. I bought it brand new about 10 years ago, and used lightly as I don't listen to headphones too often. The amp is in great condition. It has a couple of tiny nicks, the biggest one is on the Creek logo (see photos). It comes from a smoke, pet and child -free home. The amp can drive two pairs of low to medium impedance headphones at the same time. I used various headphones over the years, including AKG K702, Sennheiser HD-650 and Hifiman HE-400i. All sounded great with it. The amp comes with its original box and the OBH Uni power adapter. The adapter has swappable power plugs, but I only have the UK plug. I'm happy to post to anywhere in Australia for an extra $25. Pickup available from Lindfield NSW 2070. Photos:

  3. Further information: I have for sale my Stax SRS-3100 set. It consists of the electrostatic headphones/ear speakers SR-L300 and the driver unit (energiser) SRM-252S. The Stax's are in excellent condition. Lightly used with very low hours for their age, as I rarely use headphones. They were always stored away in a box when not used. Often I wouldn't turn them on for months. I bought them just over 3 years ago, in Singapore, from Zeppelin audio cafe, official Stax seller. (BTW, if you're into head-fi and ever in Singapore, you have to check this place out: https://zeppelinandco.com/. Coffee is not up to Aussie standards, but it's a head-fi haven) If you're checking this out, you probably already know about these electrostats. If not, there are many great reviews online. Here is one from our stereonet: https://www.stereo.net.au/reviews/review-stax-srs-3100-electrostatic-earspeaker-system They sound really good and are able to re-produce so much detail and at the same time are really easy to listen. I owned some middle-level Hifiman's, Sennheiser's and AKG's, but these Stax's were the end-game for me. But as I'm not a big fun of listening to music with headphones, and my Stax's don't get the use they deserve, I decided to part with them. Included: - SR-L300 ear speakers - SRM-252S driver unit - power adapter - UK plug - basic RCA interconnects - all original boxes and manual Please note that the power adapter has the UK/Singapore plug. You can use an AU/UK plug adapter, or purchase some good quality power adapter replacement. Or do what I do, and use UK power strips for your HiFi gear - I like those chunky UK plugs. Also, the extension cable showed in the last photo is not included, as I've already sold that separately. I'm happy to post to anywhere in Australia (insured AusPost) for an extra $40.

All sounded great with it. I switched to Stax a couple of years ago, which came with its own amp, and the Creek hasn't been getting any use.

  5. Extension cable sold separately - pending payment and pickup. Price adjusted.
  6. Further information: I have for sale an Elma Rotary 4 pole 24 way switch (model 04-4133). Perfect for a High-End 2-channel ladder stepped attenuator. It comes with the stop pin. I bought it a couple of years ago from the hificollective in the UK to build a stepped attenuator for my DIY project. I could not find time to finish the project, so the sale. "High quality selector switch, non-magnetic bodied switch with 3 micron gold plated contacts over copper alloy. Ceramic wafer. Swiss made. Mounting hole 10.2mm, 6mm diameter shaft, 15mm shaft length body dimensions 76mm L x (32mm dia. x 25mm dia.). Make-before-break type. Superb for ladder stepped attenuators, balanced stereo stepped attenuators and stereo balanced TVC selector. Elma part number 04-4133." Happy to post it. I'll cover the cost. Pickup also available from Lindfield (2070). Photos:
  7. Further information: I have for sale my Manfrotto carbon fibre tripod with two ball heads and some extras. All in excellent condition. The legs are 190CXPRO4 - 4 section carbon fibre legs. I had this tripod for a few years, but always looked after it and kept it clean. The top sections have foam protectors on all three legs. I only removed one of them to show the exact model in the pictures. This is the previous model, which is slightly shorter than the current model but also about 240g lighter. So super light, at 1410g with all three legs protectors included, great as a travel tripod. These legs are as versatile as the current model, and also have the horizontal centre column. The main difference is that the new horizontal centre column mechanism doesn't add much to the length, so the legs can be a couple of cm's longer (for each section), so the new tripod is taller. The ball head is X-PRO BHQ2 with Manfrotto's excellent quick release RC2 and 200PL plate. I bought this head just over a year ago from Georges Cameras. It has 3 knobs, the main lock, one for friction and one for panning. Two levelling bubbles. Max load 10kg and weights just a few grams over 0.5kg. I'll also include an extra 200PLARCH-14 architectural plate. It has a raised edge to stop your camera from rotating on the plate. Good for more precise work, or heavier gear/lenses. I'm also throwing in an additional smaller ball head 494RC2, which is about half the weight of XPRO BHQ2. Great option when you want to travel light or hike with the tripod and want to shave off some weight. This worked for me great, with my sub 2kg travel gear mounted on it. The tripod served me well as my main tripod, even with my heavier gear (Nikon FX). But I think my current setup deserves something bigger and better. So I decided to part with this one. Some specs: Manfrotto 190CXPRO4 (legs) - weight: 1410g (with protectors included) - folded length: 51cm - max height (with centre column extended): 146cm - max height (with centre column down): 122cm Manfrotto X-PRO BHQ2 - you can find the full specs here: https://www.manfrotto.com/au-en/xpro-ball-head-in-magnesium-with-200pl-plate-mhxpro-bhq2/ Manfrotto 494RC2 (small head) - weight: 280g + 40g plate - height: 8cm Included: - Manfrotto 190CXPRO4 legs with protectors - Manfrotto X-PRO BHQ2 ball head with 200PL-14 plate (1/4" screw) - Manfrotto 494RC2 ball head with 200PL-14 plate (1/4" screw) - Manfrotto 200PLARCH-14 architectural plate (1/4" screw) - 3 head screws, and plastic thread cover for legs - original boxes for ball heads, no tripod box Prefer to sell everything together, but let me know if you'd like a subset. I'm happy to post to anywhere in Australia for some extra fee. Pickup available from Lindfield (NSW 2070). Photos:
  8. Further information: I have for sale my Rega DAC. The DAC is in excellent condition, and comes from a smoke, pet and kids -free home. I'm the first owner. The power cord and the original box included. This is the older, non R version, with 5 filters. Plenty of good reviews online. Here is a couple: https://darko.audio/2011/08/rega-24192-dac-2-x-wolfson-wm8742/ https://www.whathifi.com/au/rega/dac/review I bought another DAC recently, so this one needs to find a new home. I'm happy to post to anywhere in Australia for an extra $30. Pickup available from Lindfield (NSW 2070). Photos:
  9. Further information: I have for sale my Stax SRS-3100 set. It consists of the electrostatic headphones/ear speakers SR-L300 and the driver unit (energiser) SRM-252S. I will also include the 2.5 meter headphone extension cable SRE-725H. Current RRP for all would be around $1500. The Stax's are in excellent condition. Lightly used with very low hours for their age, as I rarely use headphones. They were always stored away in a box when not used. Often I wouldn't turn them on for months. I bought them just over 3 years ago, in Singapore, from Zeppelin audio cafe, official Stax seller.

I owned some middle-level Hifiman's, Sennheiser's and AKG's, but Stax's were the end-game for me. But as I'm not a big fun of listening to music with headphones, and my Stax's don't get the use they deserve, I decided to part with them. I may used the funds to build myself some near-field setup instead. Included: - SR-L300 ear speakers - SRM-252S driver unit - SRE-725H 2.5m extension cable - cable sold separately - power adapter - UK plug - basic RCA interconnects - all original boxes and manual Please note that the power adapter has the UK/Singapore plug.
