  1. If you're referring to Beethoven Baby Grands, they're one model up on the Mozarts.
  2. Item: Latest Version ATC SCM11 Standmount Speakers in Black Ash Location: Melbourne Price: $1580 FIRM with donation to SNA. Current RRP $2999. Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too many speakers. These are probably my favourites at the price, but funds are more important than extra speakers at present. Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Extra Info: While nothing needs to be said about the reputation of ATC speakers, the SCM11s are commonly regarded as the sweet spot of their current range. Being an ATC fanatic, I have SCM 7s and SCM 40s which I'd consider selling if these don't move. IMO the SCM11s provide unbeatable freedom from colouration and scale at anything like this price. They display typical ATC accuracy and information retrieval with substantial bass from a moderately sized enclosure, some of the reasons why British reviewers often use them as a reference. This particular pair is as good an example as one could expect from used standmount speakers, perfect in every way apart from minor underside scratching from sitting on stands. They come with original carton, magnetic grilles, manual and all paperwork. Postage at buyer's expense available. Pictures:
  3. Item: Bryston B-60R Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: Massive price reduction from $2450 to $2250 and now $1950 !!! Donation to SNA Item Condition: Excellent apart from some rubbed off letters on front panel, however selections are still clear Reason for selling: NLR. I wanted to find out what all the fuss was about with Bryston, but I have too many amps to keep this as a spare. Vitus is my reference unit. Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal 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 RMS @ 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 included optional remote handset. All original packaging means that safe postage is an option at buyer's expense. With an RRP of $4490 that appears to have now risen to $5999 this is a rare opportunity at a bargain price. They rarely appear on the used market. Pictures:
  4. Item: Leema Acoustics Antila High End CD Player Location: Melbourne Price: Previous massive price reduction from $3500 to $2950. Now $2750 Firm !!! RRP around $7,000. Donation to SNA. Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR (Mostly using Vitus CD or streaming) Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Extra Info: Beautifully engineered ex top-of-the-range Redbook player from this renowned high end British manufacturer demonstrates how realistic CD can sound. With heavyweight construction and RCA, XLR and digital outputs, this multi-award winner is known for its detailed and dynamic performance. Rarely available in this condition with original packaging for safe postage at buyer's expense, remote and manual, this is a bargain for CD fanatics. Pictures:
  5. This looks like a rare and highly collectable combination from a great seller. GLWTS
  6. I believe they were caused by a careless removalist when moving them into my friend's new home. The speakers are at my place now and the dents can't be seen from a listening position. However, if you get close and start looking for faults, you'll definitely spot them.
  7. Item: B&W Nautilus 803 Floor-standing Speakers in Cherry Location: Melbourne Price: $4400 ONO. Originally bought for about $10K. Item Condition: Drivers and performance perfect. Enclosures ok overall. Would have been excellent except for dents shown in photos. One speaker has several I would describe as medium size, the other has less and smaller size dents, not visible from a distance. Reason for selling: Selling for a friend who has upgraded to $40K speakers. Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal. Extra Info: Warm sounding speakers with very musical midrange and plenty of bass. Attractive appearance in glowing cherry finish. Highly desirable option for a B&W fan at this price. Pickup only at this stage as there is no original packaging. The Nautilus tweeters would be hard to protect, except by careful removalists with blankets rather than cartons. I would also prefer to show the dents to a prospective buyer. They wouldn't put me off, but safer to show someone exactly what they'd be getting. Pictures:
  8. Purist Vesta RCA, XLR & Digital Coax Sold. QED USB Sold. Voodoo Vector Dragon Sold. I had to point out to several potential buyers that this model is not optimal for high current applications. Hopefully buyers realise that I've been trying to advise them appropriately, rather than frustrating a purchase. Other Voodoo models are intended for use with amplifiers, power boards, etc. There seems to be a lot of confusion surrounding power issues in general, so I've felt an obligation to ensure that members are making the right choice.

  10. Item: Musical Surroundings Fosgate Signature All Tube MM/MC Phono Amp Location: Melbourne Price: $2850. Purchased directly from the importer with RRP of $4500 Item Condition: Like new with original carton and manual Reason for selling: Sacrificing analogue for digital funds Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer or Paypal Extra Info: This acclaimed Top of the Range model has now become a collector's item, the best that US phono specialist Musical Surroundings can offer. A superbly musical and ultra-quiet unit with both MM and MC cartridges, with easily adjustable impedance settings. You can purchase a beautifully made piece of analogue history with up-to-date high end performance. Original packaging for safe postage at buyer's expense if necessary. This model is the culmination of over 100 different circuits built by legendary designer Jim Fosgate since the 1970s, all tube in push-pull configuration for the best possible linearity, while minimising noise and distortion. There are no solid-state devices, regulated power supplies or transformers in the signal path to degrade performance, with a tube also being used for the high voltage rectifier. The unusual power supply contributes to its quality, each tube stage being powered by a separate oversize storage capacitor that acts like a battery. The P/S simply holds the voltage across the capacitors like a "trickle charger". PCB layout is dual mono, each channel located on opposite sides in near mirror image with a row of dual triodes down the centre. Importantly, the first stage has no negative feedback to interact with the cartridge. Second and third stages are enclosed in a single feedback loop using both positive and negative feedback. The RIAA network is divided into 2 sections, one passive and one active. The upper half (above 1 KHz) is accomplished with a passive network between stage 1 and 2, the lower half with an active network around stages 2 and 3. Pictures:

  13. Item: Luxman A522 Belt Drive Manual Turntable fitted with Grace G-707 Tonearm & Denon DL-103 MC Cartridge Location: Melbourne Price: $1150 Reduced to $930 for quick sale !! If you separate the various components, as well as their condition, it should be obvious that this is 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 including stunning blue and silver armboard, 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 anti-skate bias correction under test conditions. Refurbishment of all electrical contacts and cabling, relocation of the arm horizontally and vertically via the locking collar and bearing re-alignment has produced probably the best performing sample of this combination you will ever find.
