  1. It can do three lots of plain old stereo, with three separate set of L+R inputs. By contrast, some of the yamaha multi-channel amps of yesteryear like my MX-830 do three lots of outputs to speakers but only have one set of inputs.
  2. Further information: See ebay. Since it has faded from the front page and two buyers have evaporated I'll go back to ebay with it from 2pm today 31/3/20. A multi-role amplifier, not necessarily home theatre. Can be used for multi-zone stereo amplification as well. Essentially a robust (it's heavy!) power amp rated conservatively at 30w x 6. See back panel photo for connections. Can also be 3 x 90w when bridged, but you should be very careful about connections when trying this. Each pair of speakers has its own output level adjustment on the front panel, and each pair has its own RCA inputs on the back panel, so theoretically you could have 3 Sonos Connects (or other streaming devices, MusicCast WXAD-10 is considerably cheaper) and be able to run three rooms selecting same or different music in each. I can supply pdf manual to buyer if required. Functions & Cosmetics: all good except small scratch on top of front panel, not that noticeable. Freight: not yet packaged, feel free to ask about costs and I'll do a quote. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. Further information: I've been using this as a stereo pre-amp/tuner since its days as a surround pre-processor are long gone, being just ProLogic. But it has plenty of inputs, inbuilt AM/FM tuner - and remote control, so is a convenient and inexpensive fill-in for anyone with a need for such a thing. I can also supply a manual as a pdf file. I've set each source to run in stereo, you might need the manual to do any alternative settings. One green LED, the AUX one, doesn't work. There might be other things I've missed, but basically I've had no trouble using it as a stereo audio pre-amp/tuner, so that's what I'm selling it for, not surround sound/theatre purposes. If you need postage, ask about cost. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  4. Item: Holden Commodore Wheel, VF, VFII, (possibly VE also) 16" with Goodyear Tyre, some useful tread left, ideal spare Location: Baulkham Hills 2153 Price: $65 Item Condition: good Reason for selling: surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit Extra Info: I bought a couple of these (couldn't find a single at the right price, and most had no tyre) as I hate those "space saver" spares which are just "cost saver" for the car companies, and speed limited to 80kph. That's a Goodyear Assurance tyre, 225 60R 16. Let's face it, you need a proper spare wheel, not that piece of junk they've foist on everyone. Probably not economical to freight, so likely a pickup job from Baulkham Hills 2153. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  5. Good value. Not as slick as some of the alternatives, but very cost effective. I've been testing one recently.
  6. Brilliant buy for someone - get back to me if no result in time frame you set.
  7. Great value. I was looking for just such a deal just before relenting and buying a new one a year or so ago to add to my stable of DD t/t but ended up having to pay twice that! It's also one of the few three speed turntables around, so can do 78 as well. Plenty of scope for upgrades to mats and cartridges.
  8. Item: Theta DS Pro Basic II DAC, three inputs Location: Baulkham Hills 2153 Price: $475 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Reducing my high-end stable of components Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Bank Deposit Extra Info: The Theta Pro Basic II DAC is a veteran, has been around for some years, but remains a favourite for several reasons. Firstly the sound quality – nothing harsh or edgy, astringent or unnatural. Airy, smooth, and none of the giveaway problems with digital sound that some still find irritating. Secondly, the build quality, which means a rugged full-width chassis, heavy faceplate, and high-grade components. Thirdly there are the three coaxial inputs, a phase reversal switch, and even a digital coax loop out. Of course there are L+R RCA analogue outputs too. The unit comes with power cord and will be packed in Theta packaging. Can freight at buyer's cost and risk. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  9. Item: Technics DD Turntable SL-1100 modified Location: Baulkham Hills 2153 Price: $895 Item Condition: good, see photos Reason for selling: I have three DD turntables Payment Method: Cash or Direct Deposit Extra Info: The SL-110/1100 were made by Technics back in the late 1970s and were bigger and heavier than the DJ standard SL-1200. More of a purist stereo turntable, particularly as they were often modified. The SL-110 came with a timber armboard but without an arm, while the SL-1100 had a metal armboard and a fairly unimpressive standard Technics arm. With Technics making a new generation of its extremely popular direct drive turntables – costing thousands of course – and reintroducing them to Australia, I can say that this has been a superb turntable for my music enjoyment. The heavy platter gives a stable speed, and I have not heard that rather obscure thing called “cogging” which might have been more noticeable in some of the lesser brands or more lightly built models on the market in the 1970s/1980s. There have been a number of superb direct drive turntables, many only sold in Japan or Europe. Apart from Technics there have been excellent models from Denon, Luxman, JVC, Goldmund, Dual and Nakamichi. This one, originally a SL-1100, has seen some changes in its lifetime. I’ve had it for about ten years, bought it incomplete, and have refurbished aspects of it over that time. It’s now fitted with an Acos-Lustre arm (nice) and a plywood arm board (basic but quite ok). You can get custom arm boards made by a chap in Germany for around $300 if you want to glitz it up – see this ebay ad: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Tone-Arm-Panel-for-Technics-SL-110-1100/332955230922?hash=item4d85ada2ca:g:9vUAAOSwXI1cFVFc I also had made the heavy duty lid which cost heaps! Included also are a dust bug, CEC-Micro (I think) cartridge, and 45rpm centre adaptor. Leads are Thorens (Swiss) which plug in to the arm's under-column with the normal 5-pin plug. UPDATE: I've added another arm board to this offer, heavily made, plywood, could suit for other arms, bonus! This is way beyond what $895 will buy you in new turntables, and could be further improved/upgraded with whatever arm, arm board and cartridge you’d like to use. Delivery: pickup preferred from Sydney or I can possibly meet in Goulburn/Canberra area. Freight: at buyers risk and expense - turntables are tricky to freight. Cost will depend on final packed weight and size. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  10. Excellent value. I have a similar one as my #3 t/t, also in black which I think looks better than the silver.
  11. Nice job I say as one modest DIYer to another. It's of interest to note (for any hifi trivia nights) that the head of Focal was once a driver designer with Audax.
  12. Now there's a brand of t/t that's been around a long time. Used to be used by some German radiogram makers in changer form.
