  1. Further information: Nordost QRT QB8 mk1 15amp 8 x socket AUS Power Board. Comes with original Box including paper work, Manual etc. Would love to hang onto but for now it’s up for sale. Hardly see these advertised. Price includes shipping anywhere in AUS with tracking. Photos:
  2. Further information: Selling a single monoblock Amplifier which could be utilised for amplifying a centre channel. It has dual speaker outputs enabling the ability to connect 2 speakers up to it running the same signal as there is only 1 RCA input. This monoblock was connected up to my centre channel & got much less use than my stereo pair that are now sold. Possibly 2 years old. An excellent performer. Please note the photos will show 2 monoblocks but only 1 is available. The Vincent will be posted in its original packaging with any paper work it came with. The Orange glowing tube window on the front on the amplifier can be switched off completely with a couple of different brightness levels to choose from. Information below regarding the Hybrid design. A completely new combination amplifier was developed for the SP-T700, exploiting the respective advantages of tubes and transistors in an innovative manner, combining them to create a harmonious whole. The SP-T700 is characterised by excellent reproduction features that remain constant over the entire frequency and load range and it has a superior power reserve. The tubes are 100% selected frame grid tubes from the military sector. They are designed for a lifetime of 10,000 hours. The best of two worlds: Subtle reproduction of voices and acoustic instruments, plus the strength and punch of a huge rock stage – the SP-T700 is an exceptional power amplifier that meets such contradictory requirements with elegant ease. This is only possible due to the latest tube technology, combined with a transistor end stage. The outcome: Inspiring sound, plus strength and comprehensive speaker control. ............................................................................................ Chartered Engineer Frank Blöhbaum (Developer) about the SP-T700: A globally unique and completely newly developed tube amplifier works in combination with a transistor output stage inside the SP-T700 power amplifier. The tube input stage receives the music signals and amplifies them with the highes purity and clarity. The transistor power amplifier controlled by the tube stage delivers „only“ the required corrent to control even critical loudspeakers with ease. The circuit principle of the tube amplifier used here - a directly coupled transconductance amplifier with highly constant current and voltage conditions for the amplifier tube – leads to a very high voltage amplification with a high linearity and very broad band width. A highly linear driver stage, created using the frame grid pentode 6SCH9P, ensures easy controlling of the transistor buffer. In order to fully exploit the advantages of the novel amplifier concept in the SP-T700, only the best was used for the power supply unit as well: A 6Z4 tube works as a rectifier for the tube stage. The voltage feed is electronically controlled and sieved afterwards. The transistor buffer is based on a high-performance power supply unit, comprising an over-dimensioned torodial transformer and switching-stable electrolytic capacitors. ............................................................................................

  3. Hey Tomwu, I haven’t compared the 3 as stereo preamps directly. I’m only interested in their excellent Movie performance. i originally used the Krell as a stereo Preamp which was excellent & have since tried the Mcintosh. Although the system is different to when the Krell was in use. They’re obviously decent performers but my current stereo pre has better synergy to the rest of my system.
  4. Hey Will, Only tested the 2 for Home Theatre duties. In that regard, the Arcam keeps up with the more expensive Mcintosh.
  5. Indeed, many were unused by me. It does have a Moving Magnet Phono stage for anyone that wants to know.
  6. Further information: This unit does decide lossless Bluray audio, Dolby true HD & DTS Master Audio etc. Excellent sound, Very dynamic & open with a lot of punch. Comes with Original remote, don’t have the microphone but can include another branded one from another processor. Any 3.5mm microphone will work. Excellent Condition, happy to post. AV888 Arcam’s world wide reputation for sound quality has come from over thirty years of experience and legendary attention to detail. All of this experience has been brought to bear in the development of the AV888 and as a result its sound quality is simply world-class. No matter what the program material, from the most explosive block blockbuster action to the most subtle musical detail, the AV888 will delivers simply breathtaking performance.

  7. Further information: Repost: 3 are available, but selling each separately. Buyer for all 3 would be preferred. Selling for $1200 each which is an excellent deal as these retail for $2599 each. They are excellent amplifiers that I have been very happy with since purchasing new maybe 2 years ago. Kept all the original packaging & paperwork including trigger cables that remain unused. I have 3 available as I was using them for my 3 front speakers including centre channel. The brightness of the orange tube window on the front of the amp is completely adjustable & can be switched off. Information below regarding the Hybrid design.

  8. Michael Fremer | Oct 23, 2019 At the San Francisco Audiophile Society meeting late September where I appeared and played records for a few hours (and had a blast), J.R. Boisclair was selling what remained of Wally Malewicz's "Wally Tools". Mr. Boisclair was a friend of Wally. The family gave him the remaining tools to sell at the event and to you online. Better, he told me that in cooperation with Wally's son Andrzej, Wally Tools will soon again be manufactured and marketed. The new Wally Tractor has now been released less than a week ago, link to the new design below which is a universal Tractor with arcs of many effective tonearm’s lengths. At US $395 + postage she ain’t cheap. https://www.wallyanalog.com/product-page/wallytractor
  9. Rossb is correct that this template was indeed designed with a specific tonearm in mind with those pivot to spindle / overhang distances. But from the manufacturer, Rodine is also correct that any 254mm tonearm should be able to use this. Their current designs don’t mention the pivot to spindle distance or overhang. Just the effective tonearm length which in this case is 254mm. Message from the creator of the new Wally Malewicz templates & other Wally products. The Wally tractor you have is perfect for setting up any tonearm at all that has a 254 mm effective length, period. If the toner manufacture chose to use non-standard assumptions for the playing radius of a record then it will still work as long as the head shell slots are long enough to accommodate the CORRECT alignment that the WallyTractor offers. If it simply cannot be made to work with it, then either the tonearm has been mounted in the wrong position or the tonearm designer, for whatever reason, chose wildly non-standard assumptions about a records playing surface. With that said, Mark Gomez of the stratospherically priced SAT tonearms has chosen crazy assumption figures. However, Michael Fremer and I conducted an experiment and we can hear the distortions caused by his assumptions at the end of records that are cut closer to the label.
  10. All cables are $10 each to make it simple. Cables written down in the order of the photos; 1 - IXOS-104 OFC 1m interconnects - SOLD 2 - Crest XStream PC-OCC 3m Digital RCA 4 - Belkin 2m RCA - 3.5mm - Pending 5 - Harmony Gold 2m Digital RCA - SOLD 6/7 - Neotech Super-Component RCA’s
  11. Price is for all 3 power cables. Prefer to sell them all together. 1 x 1.5m 1 x 2m 1 x 3m
  12. Sorry no ground cable available for sale. The cable in the picture isn’t a purposely built ground cable, but will include it if someone wants it.
