  1. Do you know if it can do HT bypass?
  2. Are these now sold with the speakers?

    FS: Vitus Audio RI-100 integrated amp

    Hi, does this have a HT bypass setting for using in a home theatre set up?

    Any chance you might split the PBK from the main sale?

    Amp works as well. Connected with my currently unused Lenehan speakers, and barely got past 9 o'clock on the volume to play it suitably loud. Not bad for rating 40 watts per channel into 8Ω. I'm daunted by the turntable - I haven't used one since I was a kid.
  6. Item: Technics Dual Cassette Deck RS-TR155 (late 80's) Location: Forestville NSW Price: Donation to SNA Item Condition: Used but working Reason for selling: Helping parents downsize Payment Method: Extra Info: I've tested this cassette deck and it is still working well. Happy with any donation to SNA. Took me back to much younger years... Have the original manual as well. Pictures:
  7. Item: Technics SL-P150 CD player (parts/not working) Location: Forestville NSW Price: Free Item Condition: For parts / not working Reason for selling: Cleaning up parents place Payment Method: can you pay someone zero? Extra Info: This CD player is not working. Powers on, tray open/closes, but fails to read CD. For parts or repairs. Vintage late 80's. I find this a great source. http://vasiltech.narod.ru/CD-Player-DAC-Transport.htm If no takers - advice is always handy for responsible disposal. I'd prefer to avoid landfill. Pictures:

    Selling / Removing stereo from parents

    Thanks for assistance all. Took components to my place to see if they have any usefulness. CD player is stuffed - likely a TOC reading error with the laser. Turns on, tray opens/closes, but no track reading. Oh well... move on to the tape deck... Edit: Tape deck works. Played cassette of Don McLean's Greatest Hits. American Pie sounded not bad.
  9. Hi, My elderly parents will need to downsize soon, and a part of the cleanup they have an old stereo and speakers that need to be moved on. I need a view as to any value of the gear - will someone want it, or should it go to the tip? All late 80's or early 90's ( the gear, not the parents ) Identified equipment: Technics Turntable - SL-8020 Technics Stereo Receiver - SA-R177 Technics CD Player - SL-P150 Technics cassette deck ? The speakers I'll need to have a look at the back for a model number. The second photo shows the bits of chipboard that have come away from the frame of the dust cover, not from the speaker cones. Basically it crumbled as I (gently) removed the cover. There may be a few LPs lurking around too - these might be valuable with the vinyl revival. Feel free to comment about the shag pile carpet - it is the worst in the house. I'll try to go and play it all to see if it is all still working ok.

    Fein dac - impressions

    Hopefully Clay can answer this, but what are the chip specs for the Fein? Can it do DSD512 like its big brother Gross?

    Power supply upgrade for Gross, Fein & Klein III DAC’s.

    Clay, is the box size of the Kraftwerk smaller or the same size as a Klein III?

    $15k floorStanders?

    Duntech Senators - might be a bit over your price range.

    SOLD: FS Vincent SA-T8 Pre Amplifier

    This likely has the same circuitry as my previous SV800 Integrated. I still miss it. Someone is going to enjoy this.

    Fein dac - impressions

    Out of interest, have you tried comparing the Fein powered by Kraftwerk vs. JS-2? I have a JS-2, and have ordered a Kraftwerk for my Gross. Similar to you I use ultraRendu and microRendu. You are seriously tempting me to get a Fein for my desk setup!

    Uptone Audio JS-2 thoughts...

    I’ve got a JS-2. Where’s the info for an upgrade like this?
