  1. If I was setting up a record shop again (been there, done that!) I'd grab these. Some real gems there, and a lot of good ones for the serious classical vinyl collector.
  2. Good value, particularly with the improved binding posts - those old 5-pin DIN are so last century. While on the subject of Sonab, I have a modified pair of Sonab OA6a Mk2 which I've refurbished and modified to run passive but bi-wirable. The active electronic bass assist might have been ok when they were new, but now they're pretty much a non-repairable hazard to shipping.
  3. Knock offs/clones on ebay

    Does anyone have experience of the McLelland power amps on ebay? 150w x 2 in to 8 ohms, 225 into 4, plenty of connection facilities, $600. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/McLelland-150W-2ch-Stereo-Power-Amplifier-POWERPRO300/262504437731?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  4. FS: AKG K712 Pro Reference Studio Headphones

    Excellent headphones - will beat most up to rrp $1000.

    Nice lot of music - I have most of it already. The Red Book of Montserrat is one of the best early music discs ever!
  6. Good company - I have one of their valve amps in my collection, working like a charm. A good buy for someone.
  7. Item: B&W Z2 Powered Speaker (boxed) Location: Sydney Price: $180 Item Condition: Excellent - in box with all original bits Reason for selling: too much stuff Payment Method: Bank Deposit, Cash, Paypal, Extra Info: Lovely unit, can be fed wirelessly or by direct Aux input or dock for recent iPhones. Like all my other audio categories I have overstocked myself on this type, having about four alternatives on hand. POstage $11 in Sydney Metro, other areas ask - I can supply a quote pretty quickly for this one. Pictures:
  8. Item: B&W Solid S100 Satellites and Yamaha YST-SW205 subwoofer Location: Sydney Price: $160 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: too many speakers! Payment Method: Bank Deposit, Cash, Paypal Extra Info: this is a value-pack for good honest audio quality and a good range of frequencies covered. The S100 satellites are very nice indeed, only requiring that extra bass for a satisfying result. Postage available, $11 in Sydney Metro, otherwise ask. I don't have weight and dimensions sorted yet. Pickup Baulkham Hills 2153. (note: due to wifely veto I have to be a little inventive with pickup arrangements!) Pictures:
  9. I use a Clavinova CLP-440 now - used to have a Yamaha compact upright piano - the CLP-440 does a great job and this one looks like excellent value.
  10. Item: Saba Hifi Studio Receiver and Speakers Location: Sydney Price: $149 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Culling my collection Payment Method: Bank Deposit, Cash, Paypal Extra Info: This is a multi-band radio and amplifier (solid state) plus two Saba speakers. It has AM, FM, SW, LW bands, and DIN inputs for tape or phono. I've used the radio and the tape input (for Sonos) and then put it away in the theatre room with all the other vintage stuff! These things have character, but I have too many of them. Pickup Baulkham Hills 2153 - postage/freight will depend on your location and a couple of other things - ask me about that. Cosmetics are not perfect, but quite presentable and the price reflects this. Pictures:
  11. DIY audio: what are you building?

    Wife Acceptance Factor? That's probably a lost cause with these ones.
  12. I'm lucky to be able to report that I have some McIntosh, Accuphase and Audio Research in my amplifier roll call, and a Dynavector arm on my main turntable. But of all the brands it is McIntosh which has impressed me the most. In speakers, Alon.
  13. Perils of focusing too much on gear

    Stanley Clarke - very good.
  14. Perils of focusing too much on gear

    I knew I'd start an argument!
