  1. Item: Usher V-602 Speakers Location: Sunbury, VIC Price: $500 Item Condition: Cosmetically 7.5/10, Functionally 10/10 Reason for selling: Upgrading Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: An awesome pair of speakers with transparent, clean sound with amazing bass response for the driver size. Solid construction with each one weighing in excess of 25kg! Lot of speaker for the asking price I had bought these speakers from a fellow member here a while ago, original sale thread link below. The speakers are in exactly same condition. These did not come with a grill unfortunately, but I prefer listening without grill anyway. Pick up only from Sunbury, VIC. Pictures: Piccies in original sale thread link. Can provide more pics if needed, let me know. Cheers.

    EOI: Nelson Pass F5 Firstwatt Clone

    That was the plan and I am seriously tempted. But getting something new also means for me that I will have to move something on.. tough decision which I am still contemplating... 😊

    EOI: Nelson Pass F5 Firstwatt Clone

    Had a visit to @totaltech 's place this evening to check out his F5 amp and have a listen. He kindly spared time and patiently let me hear various tracks. Speakers were the brilliant Altec 604! This has to be one of the best sound I have ever heard. Very musical, smooth grainless mids and highs. Beautiful live like sound stage. The amp sounded every bit as good as my Sansui B-2103 MOS, and that is saying a lot as my Sansui cost me 3 times of asking price here! This is a stonking bargain for anyone after a quality power amp. Would be extremely hard to find a better sounding amp for the money.
  4. Interesting! As you said, really couldn't find anything about this model. And I tried, hoping for a chance on one of your 907s, but alas... 😃 Only place I could find it listed here under Japanese domestic list: http://www.sansui.us/Issues_IntvsDomestic.htm Perhaps this could have been a prototype model which never made it to full production? Who knows.. Perhaps, someone who knows Japanese may have better luck finding about it on Japanese forums.

    SOLD: FS: Peachtree Audio DAC iTx DAC

    Sold elsewhere.
  6. Item: Peachtree Audio DAC iTx DAC Location: Sunbury, VIC Price: $200 excluding postage Item Condition: Excellent 9.5/10 condition. First owner. Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a great little DAC that punches way above its weight. Also has a great async Galvanic isolated USB input which works easy plug-n-play with both Windows and Linux. Its an ESS chip (9023) based DAC so has a nice detailed sound but never harsh and overall very musical to listen to. There are plenty of positive reviews online, but for what its worth here is a nice review by Stereophile of its earlier version DAC iT (iTx is an improved later version) : https://www.stereophile.com/content/peachtree-dac149it-da-converter Specs here: https://www.peachtreeaudio.com/dac-it-x-digital-to-analog-converter.html I am the first owner, bought new just over a year ago. Has worked flawlessly and it still does. Comes with original packaging, all standard accessories and an unused remote as well. Pick up or I can post at buyer's expense and risk. Cheers. Pictures:
  7. Item: Sansui AU Alpha 607MR integrated amplifier Location: Sunbury, VIC Price: $SOLD Item Condition: Excellent. All original. See description. Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I had listed this amp for sale before but had withdrawn due to no interest at the time. Listing again hoping to find this amp a good new home. This is the entry level amp in Sansui's legendary MR series, but there is nothing 'entry' level about its performance or build quality. It has a refined, transparent and smooth sound that I have never heard from any other amp in this price range. I personally believe that the sound MR and NRA series was culmination of Sansui's knowhow, and the sound of this series is also the culmination of all the good attributes of Sansui sound - musical, refined, delicate and rich. The amp is in excellent cosmetic condition and functions perfectly fine. Everything works perfectly fine as it should - except the headphone jack which was broken inside (the female jack plastic assembly) as I had received the amp. I do not use headphones with my amps, so did not bother fixing but i believe it should be a simple fix if anyone wishes to. Other than that, there is no other issue. All switches, knobs etc work as they should. The amp is dead silent, really. No hiss or hum even with your ears right on to the tweeter. Obligatory note: This is a Japanese 100v product, so needs a step down transformer to work here in Australia. Pick up preferred. But I can also ship safely packed anywhere is Australia at buyer's cost and risk. Edit: I have had someone asking about the phono input. To be honest, I have not tested the phono inputs as I do not have a turntable with me. Although, given the condition of the amp, I am confident that there should be no issue with it, I would be happy to let the buyer test it or I sell it subject to phono input working in your set up on receiving the amp.

    Vintage Sansui - Discussions

    Been there done that. If you love your Sansui, or any other vintage equipment for that matter, and want the job done properly, then I would strongly advise against going to Round Again. The 'tech' there is not skilled enough to fix anything more than a table radio. On top of that, the lack of professional ethics and courtesy is appalling. I can give anyone the details of my experience, but that is pretty much the lesson and gist of it.

    SOLD: EOI: Denafrips Pontus R2R DAC

    Thanks for the interest guys. I will get in touch with you today in the order of your expression. Cheers.
  10. Item: Denafrips Pontus R2R DAC (Silver finish) Location: Sunbury, VIC Price: (Pending finalization of sale) Item Condition: Mint. Over 2 years of standard warranty left. Reason for selling: Not sure yet. I am probably bored and need some change... Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is an EOI at this stage because I am still a bit unsure but I will make up my mind soon and would like to gauge the interest out there first... I am the first owner, bought new in Aug last year. This DAC is supported by 36 month transferable warranty, so I can potentially request them to transfer the warranty over and you will be fully covered for over next 2 years. This DAC is regarded as one of the best by many and the web is full of positive reviews. Truly exceptional build quality and performance. Weighs as much as some amplifiers with its solid Aluminum chassis and heavy duty power supply. Tech wise, its R2R so has a very natural, neutral and smooth sound. Has almost all kind of digital inputs one may ever need - I2S, AES, USB (Amanero) and Coaxial. Full tech specs here: https://www.denafrips.com/pontus Costs $2200 including shipping to Australia, and there is also a bit of wait involved, so I believe my asking price is fair for a readily available and fully run-in unit! Comes with solid original packaging, so can be safely shipped anywhere in Australia at buyers risk and cost. Will donate to SNA on sale too. Cheers. Pictures: Stock pics for now, will upload actual pics soon. The DAC looks exactly same (of course, with the top cover ) and is in pristine 10/10 condition.

    Now reduced to $1200 firm.
  13. Good catch! It is indeed other way round. You must buy the amp and fix it asap!
  14. Oh he has got the big daddys of Sansui amps, this one is just a kid in comparison
  15. Item: SANSUI AU-alpha 607MR integrated amp (100v model) Location: Sunbury, VIC Price: $600 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Need funds Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I originally purchased and imported this amp from Japan. I have been using is for several months now with no issues at all. All controls are smooth and work as expected with no noise or scratchiness. Cosmetically in very nice condition too with clean front with no prominent marks or scratch. Some small marks and scratches on sides but again nothing too bad. Its a Japanese import so needs a step down transformer to work here. Only minor quibble is that the headphone jack (plastic part with female jack in it) was broken as I originally bought it. I never use headphones at home so did not bother fixing it. Have kept the broken part safe and will supply with the amp in case someone prefers to fix it. It certainly doesn't affect the sound or any other operation of the amp. It has a plastic dust cap for headphone jack, so it is not visible either. This is a cracking little amp with smooth and musical sound. Build quality is top notch too. I personally have never heard a better amp for the money. If you are looking for an entry level/budget/great value/temporary-filler amp, then you will be really happy with this Sansui. In terms of build and sound quality, I believe this amp can easily compete with amps costing $2K or even more. Pick up from Sunbury, or I can safely pack and post at buyers cost and risk. Cheers.
