  1. I know a great deal of this hobby is personal preference but both these units sound better than any Arcam or Marantz player or amplifier I've heard either stereo or multi channel. The SPA killed a Yamaha/Marantz pre pro combo. So anyone interested in SACD should buy this player and anyone interested in multi channel SACD should buy both units! In fact room correction is the ONLY thing the SPA doesn't have and when I was having the SPA repaired (at an authorised Yamaha repair centre) the owner said it sounded better than his own, top of the range, Yamaha system.
  2. I miss these and almost want to buy them back! I couldn't justify it for a stereo only bedroom system.
  3. Very interesting!! I never knew this player existed. Based on the Oppo 103 means it probably rips sacd and probably sounds better than the stock Oppo!?!
  4. Further information: I will include for free 2x MCX-C15 (stereo speakers) + 1x MCX-SP 10 (wireless or wired amplifier for the MCX-C15 speakers) 2x MCX-A10 (in wall amplifier (untested)) https://www.stuff.tv/yamaha/musiccast-mcx-2000/review Great device for recording records to hard drive, editing and burning to CD (unit has seen VERY light use in that the CD player was hardly used, it's recorded about 30 albums and the CD burner was used a couple of times). The Yamaha MCX 2000 MusicCAST was Yamaha's attempt at multi room hifi. I
  5. The Arcam Alpha amps are great! Built like tanks (other than the plastic face) so even at this age I wouldn’t worry about reliability. I recently sold a p10 and it sounded, to my ears, more pleasing than the, more modern and more expensive, Simaudio and Marantz power amps I was also selling.
  6. I have a Quad PA One I've tried selling through the classifieds. I've been seeking $1k, it's been looked at by Chris at Kimil Electronics and still has 6 odd weeks left of his warranty. Valves so on the warm side and a great combo unit. https://www.mirandahifi.com/products/quad-pa-one
  7. Price drop! I retrieved this from Chris yesterday so the 3 months warranty starts from yesterday (4th August). The valves are all low use and in perfect order, please feel free to ask questions.
  8. Further information: A relist but I have taken it to Chris at Kimil Electronics to make sure that it is in perfect working order! It is in perfect working order so will come with his three month warranty! This is is excellent condition, I have the box etc. Pick up is vastly preferred. The QUAD PA-One is a highly versatile, user-friendly headphone amplifier AND pre amplifiers, combining classic quad valve topology with a modern selection of digital inputs including USB as well as outputs for both low and high impedance headphones. With classic QUAD sty
  9. Yes, my understanding (what I was told) is that they are the same amplifier just with an older face design.
  10. OK! Please let me apologise to interstate buyers that contacted me first regarding this amplifier. As I stated in the advert "pick up was preferred" and I have had two confirmed offers to buy from Sydney buyers willing to pick up the unit. I am selling this unit to the first of those Sydney buyers that contacted me. Clearly under priced! SOLD pending pick up (Saturday)!
  11. Technical info is available here: https://simaudio.com/en/product/330a-power-amplifier/
  12. Further information: This is a relist with a significant price drop. Purchased here earlier this year and sounded very good but was wasted on my PCM DB1's! I am the third owner. Works perfectly and have box. Pick up preferred.
