  1. Item: Parasound JC1 - Power Amp Monoblock (x2) 400 watts @ 8 Ohm Location: Sydney Price: 6,500 6200 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: NLR. Settling in with tubes amp Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: PICKUP ONLY - NO SHIPPING. Third owner. Age is around 6 years old. Still current model at their product range because it is just THAT good. I would like to sell these rather than being unused because I'm quite content with my tubes amp. Still have boxes available. Even though these are 400w / 8ohms each, Stereophile did a measurement test and the true numbers are somewhere around 568w/8ohms each! Very powerful solid state amps that can drive any speakers on planet earth (even Bose!). I used these to power my Dynaudio Confidence C2 and they power them without any sweat, even though Dynaudio C2 are famous for being difficult to drive. Happy to provide demo for serious buyers. The amp was designed by the famous John Curl, read up the story about this amp and you will be convinced that this is a serious piece of engineering and they did not skim with the components inside either. There are minor scuff marks on the chassis which is quite normal for amps at this age. The JC1 runs in pure Class-A up to 25 watts at eight ohms, with its bias set to high and ten watts into eight ohms with the bias set to low. The sticker that you see on the back panel is from the first owner from repairing a power button and an LED, so it's a very minor repair. These amps are still being sold on hi-fi stores in Sydney for $9,000 EACH. So grab a massive bargain, it's a no brainer to get it at this price when you could have spent $18,000 for the pair.

  2. Thank you guys, unfortunately when we had few thunderstorms recently the rain projects in a diagonal angle, so a little bit of the bottom section of the boxes got wet. I'm a bit worried that the integrity of the outer box got slightly compromised and not as strong as before. I'm sure the inner box is still strong though. I'm a bit reluctant on shipping because i'm worried something will happen during transit, unless maybe the buyer want to risk it?

  4. Item: Dynaudio C2 - Rosewood Location: Sydney Price: $6,500 $6,200 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: PICKUP ONLY. Local preference for Sydneysiders. Here comes your chance to own the magnificent Dynaudio C2 speakers in Rosewood colour. I love this colour, it blends very well with other furnitures. Amazing bass and detail. Unfortunately these are too big in my lounge room, and my listening position is too close to the speakers as well. I can provide demo for serious buyers. Each speaker weigh around 40kg, so you might want to bring assistant to pick these up. RRP is $18,000 new, you will not find a deal like this very often.

  6. Hi Hazzzy I'm the second owner. It's been in my home for maybe 8 months-ish? Definitely less than a year. Maybe gambit1870 can chime in regarding the total age? It's pick up only at this point unfortunately.
  7. Thank you so much Daz.. I got inspired to JC1 from you and your system thread. What a jourmey!
  8. Thank you DMax, i have spent too much money and need to recoup some finance back into my savings account
  9. Hi Konan, these are mk1. I don't have the boxes anymore unfortunately.

  12. Seriously mate? I'll pick the pilot!
  13. hahaha great find Daz! Even the conductor seems to be enjoying the piece a lot! He's almost dancing during Enter Sandman! For trombone players: Watch this video and remember... there is still hope for you to play Metallica with trombones!
  14. The best speaker experience i had with Metal so far is with Dynaudio S1.4. They're just bookshelf but super powerful and seems to be SO FAST! I'm talking about double kick drums, speedy chugga chugga rhythm with ultra high gain tone. I would recommend it if you can get one. I listen to everything from Megadeth to Mariah Carey, from Sepultura to Steely Dan, from Annihilator to Anita Baker, from Dream Theater to DJ Z-Trip, well you get my drift...
  15. You mean like this Daz? Metallica Medley arrangement for String Orchestra! I'm sure it has a bit of culture injected with the addition of orchestra to get some approvals around here? You guys can start pulling out your Real/Fake Book and play those standard tunes! (that's my jazz reference incase anyone misunderstood)
