  1. Item: see above Location: Western Suburbs Melbourne Price: $1600 Item Condition: I consider it fair to good, some nicks and scuffs here and there, expect wear and tear. Reason for selling: surplus, need the funds for new house. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: This preamp needs no full introduction as it is one of the best tube dht preamps you can buy for its money so I’ll jump straight into the specifics. I’m the 3rd owner, the unit has had some TLC done to it. All resistors changed on the CCS boards, HT PSU etc where necessary. The cheap crappy CCS trimpots have been changed with US made Precision 10 turn 1k pots so forget about jumpy measurements with the default pots which are inaccurate. All electrolytic capacitors bypassed with poly and metalised films where necessary. Some boards cleaned up a bit but I’ll still be adding some final touches to it today (mainly just dressing it up and cleaning the internals). I have 3 Tram 2 preamps and will also be listing another unit later on. Lovely dht sound. Dead quiet. The Tram 2 comes with a pair Of Sylvania 45’s, 2 x 5U4G rectifiers and 2 x 6AS7G tubes. Also comes with original remote which I never used it may need to be programmed. All tubes tested strong to NOS readings on my AVO vcm mk2.
  2. Don’t underestimate this amplifier due to its small footprint, had a wonderful long term demo experience with this amp and low Z headphones (Sony mdr sa5000 and Qualia 010).
  3. Damn very interested but I'd have to drive up to Sydney to pick these up.

  5. Thank you. I've got a bit more. I'll be listing soon.
  6. Item: Sony SCD-XB940QS SACD Player Location: western suburbs Melbourne Price: $600 Item Condition: like new immaculate Reason for selling: I never use it Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: very excellent sacd player. Purchased from Germany years ago so it has the round pins used in Europe mains but its rated for 230vac so it works here. comes with original remote control. Inlay of copper shielding applied to the inside of the case lid. Reads original cd-r and sacd. Does not read burnt discs. uses the same chipset found in the bigger and more expensive brothers 777es and scd-1 players.

  7. Don't worry I'm local resident expert when it comes to ipa beer consumption.
  8. Is it safe to use ipa in these cleaners? I have one and ipa but I've never used it because of it being flammable.
  9. I’ve highlighted a few in my original post. The film caps in the PSU is fine they look like that because they originally had white labels which have since fallen off and I’ve tried to clean as much of the dried residue as possible without wiping off the rating label of the capacitors. No mods have been done to the regulators the LV/HV psu board is revision 1.02 different to the original in the first batches of the Tram kit. The design overall is the same except the later boards (used here) feature a slightly revised layout. This Tram has the Coleman heater regulators installed and sinked appropriately to the inner sides of the chassis for heat dissipation. It stays lukewarm at most but not burning hot. Also depends on your ambient temperature as well as well as the 6AS7 super mu follower and the rectifier tubes being utilised as they put off some heat. Unfortunately I’d like to keep this one domestic in terms of post/pickup. There is just too much stuff that can go wrong with shipping this to other side of the world. You’d be looking at a 25kg packed double padded sturdy box do shipping won’t be cheap with insurance and sign on delivery and full tracking.
  10. Seriously under-rated valve phono preamplifier.
  11. Done by myself. I'm a qualified EE, so all safety checks have been performed, but the previous builder Decky has done a fine enough job for a non necessary complete overhaul.
