  1. I have this same model of speakers. These are seriously amazing speakers for the money, one of few very best I have heard. Only downside is that its very hard to upgrade from these as it won't be easy to find something better without spending significantly more
  2. These are special amplifiers. I know its a cliched ad line but I do think these are genuinely and truly special and that's not counting the fact that these are extremely rare to find in such condition. Pioneer spared no expense in building them. I have read that as much as 80% of the parts used inside were custom developed and built to exact specifications to achieve the performance they wanted. A special power supply & circuit design that achieves the incredible 300W in class A! These run hot, pretty hot just like a Class A amp but they are also very powerful and can virtually drive any speakers to sufficiently loud levels without running out of steam. Here is a reliable Japanese source which provides some useful details about this brilliant amp, please have a read - https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.niji.or.jp%2Fhome%2Fk-nisi%2Fm-5.htm I had personally imported these from Japan with great expense. What I am asking is much less that what it cost me get them here. Just think of shipping cost of two double layered boxes weighing more than 30kgs each. Never thought I would sell them, but due to personal circumstances and space limitation (shared living room space), I rarely get to play my music loud and I feel using such large and powerful amplifiers to just barely be using 4-5 watts of power is utter wastage in every respect. Hence I am trying to down size my system to simple and low powered components. Both the amplifiers are in perfect working order and there is no hum or hiss or any other issues in operation. I can confirm and will guarantee that both of these are in 100% original condition and have never been repaired or tempered with in any way. Note that these are Japanese Exclusive M5 model (these were sold as M6 in EU and other markets) and only work on 100v. If personally picking up, I will also throw in a Tortech Aussie made 1000VA stepdown transformer that works very well to power these beasts. Although I do have all the packaging that these were shipped in from Japan, due to the rare and delicate nature of the these I still would prefer collection. Happy to audition too. If no local interest, then I would consider shipping but the buyer will need to arrange their own pickup and shipping. Please feel free to shoot me a PM if you have any questions! Cheers.
  3. As per the title, selling my Sonic Frontiers SFL-1 preamp in overall great condition. Comes with original Mullard ECC81 (Made in Great Britian) tube installed. Really nice sounding preamp with beautiful natural tone and excellent transparency. In perfect working order. Pick up welcome or can ship Australia wide at cost. Cheers.
  4. Gorgeous speakers, look so cute to me 😍 Wish I had the money to spare, GLWTS!
  5. A stellar DAC that punches way above its price. Very very hard to beat for anywhere in the price. Has brilliant tone and musical presentation. I personally preferred it over the more expensive UD-503 that uses supposedly superior AKM DACs. In full working order and perfect condition. Note: This was imported from Japan so only works on 100v. Will need a step-down transformer to work here. I have priced it accordingly. Pick up or can post at cost packed in its original box. Cheers.

  6. Up for sale is the legendary The Fisher X-100A tube integrated amp (original 240v). Just before I bought it, the previous owner had it fully serviced and refurbished by a qualified veteran tube tech who brought it up to its original factory specs (I have personally spoken to the tech and verified that he indeed serviced the amp. Happy to provide details to any potential buyers.) As a result, its is in great working condition and needs no work. All controls and knobs are original and they operate with zero noise or crackling. Amp itself if dead silent when no music playing, no audible hum or hiss. Rated at only 17w + 17w, it could still drive my Lenehan MLT3 speakers to decent volume levels without any issues and I do use it once in a while. Cosmetically, its in very good condition given that it is a 60 years old piece! Functionally, it operates perfectly. Currently has quad of JJ EL84 tubes in power stage, and a mix of JJ and new issue Mullard and some NOS in pre stage. You are welcome to come check it out and have a listen. Pick up preferred due to delicate nature of the amp. But I am happy to pack it up really well if buyer arranges their own shipping at their cost and risk. Any questions, please feel free to ask! Cheers. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  7. Item: Meridian DSP5200 speakers Price Range: Fair price depending on the condition Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Been looking for these locally. Just putting it out there in case you have a pair for sale or know someone who has, please let me know. Cheers.
  8. Hey @qlder75, I have now added a pic from the rear. Sorry this one has no enclosure, not sure if it ever came with one. Sorry about the dust on the transformers, should have given it a bit of dusting before taking a pic.
  9. Up for sale is the legendary The Fisher X-100A tube integrated. Just before I bought it, the previous owner had it fully serviced and refurbished by a qualified veteran tube tech who brought it up to its original factory specs (I have personally spoken to the tech and verified that he indeed serviced the amp. Happy to provide details to any potential buyers.) As a result, its is in great working condition and needs no work. All controls and knobs are original and they operate with zero noise or crackling. Amp itself if dead silent when no music playing even right up to the speakers. I bought it hoping to get a high sensitive tube friendly speakers but that plan did not work out due to lack of funds. So need to sell this on unfortunately as its practically not best suited to my Lenehan MLT3 speakers that seem to like powerful amp. Although, its only rated at 17w + 17w, it could still drive my Lenehan MLT3 speakers to decent volume levels without any issues and I do use it once in a while.

  10. Ebay is a crazy place, anything is possible there 😁 Seriously though, I am just selling as per what I paid for it. I don't like flipping stuff for profit. Just Passing on the goodness.. 😉 Rest assured though, nothing wrong with the unit!
  11. Was that a trick question @Dacman? DSD all the way to 11.2MHz, both on the input and as inbuilt upsampler. More details here: http://audio.teac.com/product/ud-503/
  12. I don't use subwoofers, so haven't tried 2.1 personally. It does have a '2.1' option also listed in 'types' list so I think it can work that way for sure.
  13. Further information: Bought this unit as a temporary preamp while my regular preamp was at service. I was so impressed with this little Meridian unit that I actually tracked down and got a G series processor. I wouldn't sell it otherwise. Works wonderfully as a 2 channel preamp when 'typed' in '2.0' mode. Allows you to use any of the Meridian's well known DSP presets (e.g Trifield, Super Stereo, Music etc) or you can bypass any processing with Direct mode. Each input can be customized individually with its own preset and sensitivity to avoid clipping with 'hot' sources. Also has a really nice DAC which can accept 44.1 and 48Khz sample rates. Sounds very smooth and warm. If you like NOS DAC sound, you will love the DAC it has. In addition to above, there is one little trick it does that I found most amazing. This unit can work as a digital 'buffer' between your CD player and DAC and can re-clock signal to bring immediate and obvious improvement. For that, you type it to '2.0 Digital' mode where it outputs to spdif digital instead of analog. Note that the digital out is full range signal with no volume control. This digital out then can be fed to an external DAC. Using it this way, you can either utilize any of the inbuilt DSP presets, or pass the signal transparently using Direct mode. I found no degradation in sound when used this way with Direct mode. It actually seems to reduce jitter making everything sound much smoother and simply better. Can't be beaten for the price.
