  1. Item: Magico S3 Floor-Standing Speakers in M-Cast Pewter Location: Melbourne Price: Originally listed for $17K but now reduced to $15.5K !! This is a true high end bargain as they retailed around $33K, while the S3 mk2 is currently $43K and in such demand that there's a waiting list. Item Condition: As close to new condition as possible in a used item. Complete with all packaging, including inner cartons and crate for safe transport. Reason for selling: Need funds Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Extra Info: Anyone who can afford these will be aware that they are produced by arguably the most highly regarded speaker manufacturer in the world today, becoming a reference amongst high end audiophiles. You presumably need no description of the unique virtues of this model, formed from a solid aluminium enclosure, with reviews all over the net. Subjectively they excel in detail, clarity, size of soundstage, control and extension without harshness. In other words, sheer accuracy and neutrality when the rest of the system is able to do them justice. This pair is as good an example of this rarely available speaker that you will ever find on the used market. They were purchased directly from the Magico importer. Happy to demonstrate for SERIOUS buyers. No time wasters please! Pictures:
  2. This is the best looking SP-10 I've ever seen! Anyone interested in this legendary model would be foolish not to snap it up at a great price. Comes from a fantastic seller as well !
  3. This will be a great buy for someone. You're certainly moving on gear at tempting prices, Old Son!
  4. Thanks for your nice comments, Darren and others. The C2 IIs are going to an existing Dynaudio owner, which is great because he knows what he's getting - the same plus a bit more!
  5. SOLD PENDING PAYMENT
  6. The amps on the floor are Boulder M-850 mono blocks. Although the smallest of the Boulder monos, they are still quite powerful at 200W RMS (@2, 4 or 8 ohms, although they are not Class D). This doesn't mean that the Dyns are hard to drive at all, with an efficiency of around 89dB/W/m from memory. However, like all good speakers with high power handling and transient capability, they will respond to higher power amplification if available. I would normally be running Magico S3s in this system ( Also listed for sale) rather than the Dyns, where the price point of the Boulders is more appropriate. The important issue is more to do with how critical the speaker is, rather than mere efficiency. The Magicos are more demanding of amplifier quality than the Dyns, so they're well matched to the Boulders. The Dyns will obviously benefit from the superior quality of these amps as well, but still perform exceptionally with a much more modest 100W integrated, while the Magicos would be very disappointing in such circumstances. Dynaudio deliberately created the C2 mk IIs to be amplifier and room friendly, knowing that not everyone has the ideal space or huge budget to suit.
  7. Item: Magico S3 Floor-standing Speakers in M-Cast Pewter Location: Melbourne Price: $17,000 Reduced to $16,000 for quick sale. They retailed for around $33K, while the S3 mk2 is currently $43K and in such demand that there is a waiting list. Item Condition: As close to new condition as possible in a used item. Complete with all packaging including inner cartons and crate for safe transport. Reason for selling: Need to sell the Magicos or Dynaudio Confidence C2 Mk II (also listed in Classifieds) to pay debts Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Extra Info: Anyone who can afford these will be aware that they come from arguably the most iconic speaker manufacturer in the world today. They have certainly become a reference amongst high end audiophiles.

  8. Thanks mate. Baffles me too, especially when C1s have sold without any trouble for not much less. Maybe people think they're too tall. Ironically, they're specifically designed to avoid some of the problems that can occur with larger speakers in small rooms.
  9. Item: Dynaudio Confidence C2 Mk II Floorstanding Speakers in Piano Black Location: Melbourne Price: $7800 (Reduced by $1,000 from original listing) Item Condition: Excellent including crates for safe transport Reason for selling: Funds needed to pay debts. Withdrew these from sale, as I was getting fed up with low ballers and put my Magico S3s on the market. I need to sell one or the other pair. Please bear in mind that I've already rejected an offer of $7500. Confidence C1 standmounts sell around $6K so these have to be worth the asking price, being around twice the price at RRP. Payment Method: Cash, bank transfer or Paypal Extra Info: Stunningly tall and luxurious in premium piano black finish, demonstrating Dynaudio's game-changing "DDC" dispersion technology trickling down from their top models. Reviewers universally acknowledge their relaxed yet detailed presentation, wide and deep soundstage, coherent imaging and dynamics. As result of their unique driver placement and crossover technology, these large speakers are designed to work well in small or large rooms, with minimal interference from ceilings or floors. At less than half their new price and near faultless condition, they represent a bargain-priced entry into the best that Dynaudio has to offer. An end-game speaker for most music lovers.

    Ausdio Equipment Rack - 3 Shelf 1.2M wide

    If it's still available I could collect next week. Thanks
  11. Item: Luxman A522 Belt Drive Manual Turntable fitted with Grace G-707 Tonearm & Denon DL103 MC Cartridge Location: Melbourne Price: $1150 Reduced to $950 FIRM. Low-ballers please don't bother. This is already a bargain. Item Condition: Beautiful clean condition apart from some scratching to the lid. Operationally perfect Reason for selling: Far too many turntables Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Extra Info: A superb example of this rare turntable, with classic looks but serviced and upgraded to current audiophile standards by turntable maestro Rick Powell . Adjusted for optimum performance with correct VTA, azimuth, overhang, offset angle, tracking force and bias correction under test conditions. Refurbishment of all electrical contacts and cabling, relocating the arm horizontally and vertically via locking collar and re-aligning the bearing has resulted in this probably being the best performing sample of this combination you will ever find.

  12. Item: Bryston B-60R Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $2450 ONO Item Condition: Excellent, apart from some letters on front panel rubbed off, however selections are still clear Reason for selling: Too many amps. No longer needed as spare. Using Vitus Audio RI-100 Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal + fees Extra Info: Superbly engineered amp from Canada with 20 year warranty when new. Close to the quietest I've heard, with a neutral yet dynamic presentation. Slimline but heavy construction putting out 60W RMS @ 8 ohms and 100W @ 4 ohms. Features 4 pairs of RCA inputs plus Tape Monitor Loop, headphone socket and removable Pre Out/ Main In links. All switches, contacts and connectors are gold plated. This unit in silver includes manual, test report and motorised volume control via the optional remote handset. All original packaging means that safe postage is an option. With an RRP of $4490 that appears to have now risen to $5999 this is a rare opportunity. Pictures:

    FS Dynaudio C2 Speakers

    Platinum is the latest series. These are Confidence mk I which was superseded by Confidence mk II and now Platinum. Signature refers to premium high gloss finish. Still great speakers for the price.
  14. Item: Magico S3 mk1 Floor-standing Speakers in M-cast pewter Location: Melbourne Price: $17,000. Open to near offers or sensible trade, but outright sale preferred. Please remember that Magico S3 mk2 retails for $43K and be realistic! Item Condition: As close to new condition as possible in a used item. Complete with all packing including inner cartons and crate for safe transport Reason for selling: Too many speakers. I've been unable to sell Dynaudio Confidence C2 mkII for a fair price, so these will have to go. At least I now know what all the fuss is about! Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal+fees Extra Info: Anyone who can afford these is probably aware they come from arguably the most iconic high end speaker manufacturer in the world. You presumably need no description of the unique virtues of this model, formed from a solid aluminium enclosure, with reviews and reputation being all over the net. Suffice to say that this is as good an example of this rarely available speaker that you will ever find on the used market. They were purchased from the Magico importer. Happy to demonstrate for SERIOUS buyers. Pictures:
