  1. Further information: YBA YM-501 DVD Player. This is a substantial unit, that in my opinion is an excellent CD player, more so than a competent DVD player. It is extremely well built and includes a USB input that reviews indicate as 24/192k compliant, although I have never tested this, nor can I confirm what formats it will decode. The drawer mechanism works without issue, and apart from a couple of minor scuffs on the top, presents very well. This French company get high praise for their designs and when released in about 2010, this was a far from inexpensive player at approx 800 UK pounds. T
  2. Further information: Trichord Diablo Phono Stage with Never Connected Power Supply (NPSU) and power lead upgrade. Trichord is the electrical design company aligned with Michell Engineering (aka Michell Gyrodec turntables) and make the turntable power supplies and Phono preamps. This is a high quality phono stage, with a small form factor, separate power supply and the upgraded power connector. In the UK this retails for just under 1600 pounds, so far from Inexpensive, but a great opportunity for someone to climb the vinyl reproduction ladder at a very reasonable price. Mono &

  4. Thanks for the feedback. I think it is an excellent price too. Great headphones with extras. The Dekoni earpads are pretty much the same as that on the Utopias. Super comfy.
  5. Further information: Focal Elear Headphones in excellent (as new) condition. These have Dekoni Audio Elite Fenestrated Sheepskin earpads fitted (original Focal Elear Velour pads are included). Also included is an extra Focal 1.2m (6.35mm terminated) cable, for those who find the originally supplied 4m cable too long, although I found it perfect for sitting on a lounge that was 3+ metres away, plus a Sennheiser 6.35mm to 3.5mm adapter.

  6. My understanding is that setting the device to 4K60 SDR will transfer a non-HDR stream, but as I have never tried this, or had the need to, I can only go by what is documented and assume it functions as described..
  7. Hello Lonewolf, This is what the manual says, which suggests you can, but as I have never tried it I am only going on what is documented.

  9. Further information: Do you have a Home Theatre receiver/processor that you love, that is not 4K compliant, but have a 4K TV or Projector, and would like to be able able to send 4K via HDMI to the screen, and Audio via HDMI to the amp? The HDFury AVRKey Split Video and Audio device is the solution. "A brilliant device if ever there was one! has one HDMI input and two outputs, or run 2k/4k to one TV and extract HDMI audio into soundbar to receiver, very rare as most splitters can’t do this. Or use as 4k/2k splitter. Supports all current audio and video formats – simpl
  10. Further information: This speaker ( a 4-driver, 3-way acoustic suspension center channel) was purchased new from Lifestyle Parramatta to furnish our house for sale that we had moved out of two weeks before covid hit. At the time it was furnished, but alas, as time went by the furniture was moved out and in the end we realised we needed to refurnish the house if we hoped to sell. This speaker was one of those pieces of "furniture" and as the house has recently sold, I need to move this on. Apart from plugging it in to make sure it sounded as good as I hoped, which it does, it has not been used
  11. Further information: These speakers were purchased to furnish a house that was put on the market 2 weeks before COVID hit. Alas, no lookers or buyers at that time and only in the past 3 months did things improve. Sadly, we had moved out and ended up refurnishing the house because empty houses struggle to get people's attention. The house had a music/theatre room, so purchased these mains, a Paradigm centre (also for sale) and an amp to make it look "lived in". This was purchased from Lifestyle Parramatta as demo stock, and apart from a couple of small nicks on the right edge of one speaker, t
  12. Further information: Paradigm Premier 500C Centre speaker (white) in new condition. This speaker was purchased to furnish a house that was put on the market 2 weeks before COVID hit.

This was purchased from Lifestyle Parramatta as demo stock, but there is not a mark on it, and I h
  13. Further information: Excellent "can do it all" active speakers. Sound fantastic as PC monitors or even as main speakers in a small room. Audio formats include MP3, WMA, MPEG4 AAC 48 kHz / 24 bit, WAV/FLAC/AIFF 192 kHz / 24 bit, ALAC 96 kHz / 24 bit, DSD 5.6MHz and includes Yamaha MusicCast and Bluetooth connectivity. You will surprised at the volume and quality these speakers can generate. I do not have the original boxes, so would prefer "local" pickup or delivery, and by local I mean anywhere from Sydney to Canberra. I am happy to deliver or meet in a convenient mid-point location, but ca
  14. Further information: Excellent HT processor and digital DAC/preamplifier (HD audio decoding compatible with Dolby Digital (EX), DTS, DTS ES (D6.1, M6.1), DTS 96/24 or 192K 7.1 CH PCM). Although not 4K (HMDI 1.4 only) or Dolby Atmos. I used this in a HT environment with fantastic results, feeding a Mark Levinson stereo power amp, then Auralic Mono blocks, for L/R and a Rotel RMB-1075 (also for sale) for Centre and Surrounds. This has no analog inputs, but fed it using Oppo BDP-103, Roon Nucleus (both via HDMI) and various CD transports via Coax, with great results. Very flexible and sophi
  15. Further information: Excellent 5 channel power amplifier (120W RMS per channel) and very solidly built at just under 20kg. Have used it for the past 3 years powering Centre and Rear channels and is sounds great. Also tested it with Thiel MCS1's, JMLab Mini Utopia's and KEF Q700s recently as was impressed with the control and quality it had to drive these main speakers. The centre speaker I was using was a Focal Electra CC1008 Be and the dialogue presentation was excellent. Recently tested with Paradigm Premier 500C (Centre) with equally impressive results. Ceiling speakers were Speakercraft A
