  1. Further information: This listing is for a set of 6 tubes All in very good condition. Still plenty of hours on them. I have total 12 all of same age, same hours so if you need all 12, or if 4 is all you need. I can sell in either set of 4, 6 or 8 or 12. Just let me know. I upgraded to KT88 as my amp can run on either tubes. Has been kept in box since last year in moist free environment Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved
  2. Great DAC, I’m using one now. That’s a bargain price right there, lucky buyer
  3. Further information: This is a beautiful and versatile piece of equipment. It streams Spotify / Tidal, equipped with inbuilt digital preamp, colour display, USB DAC, has Co-axial and optical digital inputs and 2 pairs of stereo outputs 1 is fixed and one is variable for used as digital preamp connecting it directly to a power amp if you wish. Comes with remote control and it sounds just great with any digital sources. I even feed a digital cable from my Marantz CD-17 mk2 to its coaxial digital input to use its internal DAC, it’s a very capable DAC, not just a great streamer. Retailed for around $2k USD back in 2012-2013 and received highly raved reviews. It had an easy life in smoke and pet free home, and no scratches, dents whatsoever.

  4. Further information: Think of this Primare SPA-21 as a true high quality high current stereo amplifier plus the capability to process DD/DTS surround sounds whom consider watching movies as the less frequent option. It does not carry all the latest bells and whistle in the fast changing world of multichannel digital audio. Video upscaling, HDMI switching are all out of the list here. However, according to the manual the proprietary developed audio chipset can handle up to 24bits/192khz audio processing. I personally never paid attention to this. All I know is it has been providing exceptional analogue and digital audio quality from either of connections. It has standard connections plus an array of Coaxial and Optical inputs with a very decent built in DAC for music if you so wish to listen to your music via digital input. What you will enjoy and what this will sure to deliver best is its ability in audiophile quality audio. In fact some reputable Reviewers precisely rated it between Primare’s 2 dedicated Integrated amplifiers, the i22 and i30, both received raved reviews and they ain’t cheap. Look inside this amp you’ll find 2 x large toroidal transformers, located on each side, arranged as if it’s a dual mono design plus a massive full size heatsink. It’s extremely heavy, much heavier than many of today’s AV receivers. Listen to it in pure stereo mode you’ll enjoy abundant of details, terrific midrange clarity and impressive soundstage typical of a highly capable stereo amplifier. Its bass is also firm and weighty too and most importantly the whole frequency band is very well controlled and behaved. As mentioned earlier, it does not have HDMI switching. I ran HDMI video connection directly to my TV + a Coaxial digital from my blu-ray player to this amp for multichannel processing. I also run a pair of decent RCA from the same disc player to the amp’s stereo RCA input for music. That works great. Whilst it excels in stereo, it does not let down the 5.1 processing skill. It’s capable of very fast steering of channels with real power and definition, very much matching many high-end multichannel receivers/amplifiers.

  5. Further information: Pair of 2.5m 100% genuine Cardas Quadlink 5C speaker cables. Terminated by Cardas with Cardas spades. This is neither grey market import nor copied. (I don’t buy or resell non-genuine products). Both cables are in great condition, not used much and well looked after. A neutral, well balanced sounding cables, it adds nothing of its own other than just communicate pure signals from your amp to the speakers. The way all good speaker cables should be. Price is decent for such well looked after cables so no offer please Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  6. Excellent cable, one of QED’s most highly rated. I still hold on to my 1m pair, have enough RCAs of I’ll grab it. GLWTS
  7. It’s kind of unusual to hook such small speakers on end of the big and high current SA-100mk3. To listen to how they sing in this arrangement is also unusually entertaining and enjoyable
  8. Thanks Rantan, they really do shy with quality electronics.
  9. Further information: These small babies can pack a matured sound belies their size. The real Australian Jarah veneered looks and feel assuringly strong and well built, with attention to details including anti-reflective felt around the tweeter, high quality components, Danish made midbass and HF drivers. The impressive depth and width of the sound stage these things can deliver is truly impressive. Best to locate them approximately 50cm from rear wall on strong and stable stands will surprise you to the point that you might think you’re listening to a larger set of speakers. Condition. They do have some slight marks as per photos but overall present well. Drivers are in excellent condition. Comes with grills. The photos shows a bit darker colour due to lightings but actual colour is a bit more of reddish Jarah. I listen to them on ends of my Cary Audio tube power amp also Plinius SA-100mk3, they really put behind many standmount speakers I had owned before. Their well judged balance, bass weigh and speed, imaging and details are admirable. Midrange has that matured warmth that made male vocals to have that ‘in-the-room’ feel Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  10. Further information: FREE POST ANYWHERE IN AUSTRALIA Photo is now updated with the actual item with box, presented just like new as I used it for a short time then upgraded to Chorus 2 so have been safely packed away. Selling around half of original RRP and is firm, great savings here to own a pair that’s just like new. Nothing wrong with it and I feel this one sounds better than my previous Accuphase AL-10 XLR, great level of details from top to mids and precision bass whereas AL-10 seems a touch bass shy Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  11. Further information: This pair is just in pristine condition. No marks, fade, dent or scratch whatsoever. It’s been very well looked after, has been fed with high quality electronics at low to moderate volumes only. 100% working condition. Dark cherry real timber veneer looks and feel great. The 2 dark spots on top corner are just natural wood spots, not a damage. Comes with grills, also in perfect shape. A quite reluctant decision but they have to move on to make way for my near future upgrade. They sound punchy, crisp details, lively midrange and bass has both superb speed and depth, but has subtlety and delicacy when you switch your mood to softer music. Set them up correctly you’ll be rewarded with a soundstage that has both depth and space. Preferred pickup but I can send to interstate via TNT or CourierPlease at your expense.

  12. They are definitely a great set of smaller floorstanders to own and listen to. Now sold. Thanks guys
