  5. Item: Pass Labs X2.5 pre-amp with remote Location: Melbourne (Yarraville or Dromana) Price: $1800 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Going Valve Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased here on SNA for same price as listed. I more recently purchase a Herron Pre here. Both pres sound great but I have decided to keep the Herron as my amps are valve too. The Pass is a detailed, lively, open sounding Pre, not harsh or etched, quite impressive. Very well made, working perfectly, no issues and in lovely condition. This was $7500 when new. Australian stock 240v. Excellent condition, no damage. Have all original double boxed. Able to ship at buyers cost. Pictures:

  8. Item: AKG K-1000 Location: Mt Eliza Vic 3936 Price: $1950 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Selling on behalf of a friend Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Please PM me and ill put you in contact with my friend. From friend: For sale is my AKG K-1000 in excellent condition. I am the original owner and it is the best sounding headphone I have ever listened to. The sound it is capable of is extraordinary when properly amplified and used together with top level DAC. It requires a lot of power for full drive so I recommend speaker amplifiers. I used the AKG K-1000 with a Bryston and a very nice Hafler amplifier. The sound is neutral, transparent with very high resolution and a bass with clarity and presence. The midrange is extremely transparent and the high frequencies are present without harshness or fatigue. These headphones are fantastic for professional mixing/mastering or just enjoying music. The K-1000 does not have a plug at the end of the cable. As mentioned, I had the headphone connected directly to the amplifier. I always kept the K-1000 stored in a velvet cloth bag when not used. Unfortunately, the original wooden box has been misplaced years ago and it is sad to let the K-1000 go. Pictures:
  9. This may be true regards optimising synergy.... Sasha with good SS & REF250se with a different speaker Both will be different presentations, perhaps the sasha should go !!! ? what a crazy hobby
  10. Bass is deep and full. They don't break a sweat with the Sashas
  11. Possibly, however they do sound wonderful as they are with the REF5se, I might have the "hifi curiosity bug"
  12. Very good of you to say Joe !
  13. Thank you. With previous comments I am starting to think this....
