  1. Further information: A lovely set of the highly regarded Linn Kaber 'LS500', the version 2 of this speaker, which features the updated tweeter (a real highlight) and the, somewhat rare, 'Granite Composite' (some call it 'Kustone' or artificial stone) which was designed to add a better bass response/depth and stability to the speakers. They also feature multiple wiring options including single, Bi & Tri or Active wiring which is fairly unusual. I've been running them as a simple single input and they perform very well. Overall these speakers are in great condition however there is slight damage (looks worse in the photo) to the top rear corner on one speaker and one of the bases had been broken at some stage and fixed by simply glueing the base back together. I have tidied this up and painted both bases to match the front panel on the speakers. (You can't see the fix unless you turn the base over.) Both original 'stocking material' grill covers are in good condition. Pics are part of the description. This is some of the basic tech info: Introduced: 1989 Ceased Production: 1999 3-way, Infinite Baffle Loudspeaker Frequency Response: 40Hz-20kHz +/- 2dB (Active) 60Hz-20kHz +/- 3dB (Passive) Input Impedance: 8 Ohms per drive unit (Active) 4 Ohms (Passive) Efficiency: 87dB for 1W at 1m (1kHz) Minimum Amplifier Power: 60W / 8 Ohms (I was running them with a 35w Valve Amp no problem at all.) Drive Units: 19mm ceramic-domed treble, 2 x 125mm carbon-loaded bass/midrange Applications: Single-wired, Bi-wired, Bi-amped, Tri-wired, Tri-amped, Active Size: W 192mm x D 280mm x H 900mm Weight: 26kg each Manual here: http://pdfstream.manualsonline.com/9/970cd26e-dad2-4523-936f-65ec8a411431.pdf I'd prefer local audition/pick-up but will drop to Pack & Send if shipping is required.

  2. Decibel also do a great upgrade for the Ortofon OM so you could start with a basic OM version and update it later. https://www.decibelhifi.com.au/jico-hyper-elliptical-stylus-for-ortofon-om-cartri - recently refurbed a Luxman PD290 that had an OM cart when it came to me - added this stylus and was very impressed. Having said that I'm also a +1 for the AT VM95E and have used it on a few lower end refurbs recently with great results - better than a basic OM.
  3. I have a dead SL-B202 which looks like it might use the same platter. Yours for postage cost if you want to give it a go.
  4. Item: Ambience Ribbon Speakers - Reference Models 1600 or 1800 Price Range: Market Value Item Condition: Must be at least VGC+ Extra Info: Due to size of the speakers would be looking in the S.E. Qld region or Northern Rivers area of NSW only.
  5. Howards Orange Oil or Restor A Finish in Neutral and some fine steel wool will remove the marks on top of the cabs. Bit of work, but will be worth it. Set of JBLs below - about an hour's work. Then finish with the Restor A Finish in the tint colour you want.
  6. Those stands have done duty with me and also another SNA member @kelossus
  7. Well worth it - these pics are the older version - works great on the noise reduction on the power line!
  8. Amazing condition and well priced considering what the Spec combos are selling for.....
  9. Item: Audio Research SP-8 Valve Pre Amp (early 80's) Location: Brisbane Price: $2800 Item Condition: Very Good (for age) Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal friends, COD or Shipping via Pack & Send Extra Info: Will drop to Pack & Send for interstate shipping. Came as part of a system buy to acquire an Oracle Delphi turntable. A one (fastidious) owner in VCG for it age and was last serviced in 2018. (See photos.) I have run this pre-amp into my Krell KSA 50 for the last two weeks (digital input via Bluesound Vault, analogue via Luxman PD-288 with Grace F9 cart - both sound great - and have also run a EQ in the tape loop to test this function.) and it has performed very well, however I don't have a place for it in my system. External condition is very original and in overall very good condition considering it is nearing 40 years of age. I would think if someone was to do a restoration on the unit that a 10/10 condition result would be possible. Internally - please see photos - all I can say it is in working condition well and sold as such with no implied warranty or return option. Original owner manual is included in the sale. Can be demo'd in (Tennyson) Brisbane or can drop to my local Pack & Send for interstate shipping at buyers cost. (I would not pack this myself, but have never had an issue the local P&S team shipping vintage gear.) Photos form part of the description.

  10. Anyone got a phone number for Sonic Art - I think they are the agent for Oracle Audio, but I can't find a phone number (hidden when I open the website http://www.sonicartaudio.com/ and they have not answered my email from earlier this week? Thanks in advance.
  11. Item: B&W CM6 S2 Speakers Location: Brisbane Price: $1500 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Can be shipped Australia wide as have original boxes. Lots of online info if you are not familiar with them - but these are up there with the best in bang for buck. From a personal point of view these are some of the best bookshelf speakers I have owned and their real strengths are detail & sound stage. Grills are magnetic attachment which is nice as it leaves the fronts 'blemish free' when removed. I have the boxes for the speakers so can ship Australia wide at buyers' expense. Can be demo'd in Tennyson, Brisbane. The CM6 S2 has recently been replaced by the B&W 705 speakers that sell (RSP) for $3499 so this set is less than half the price of buying the new version. (Some B&W resellers still have stock of CM6 S2 and have them listed at $2999.) Pics form part of the description and guide to overall condition. The only blemish on the speakers just to the right of the Bowers & Wilkins logo and is shown in the last image. Tech info: Drivers: 1 x 25mm aluminium dome tweeter, 1 x 165mm Kevlar cone bass/midrange Crossover: 4000Hz Frequency response: 50-28kHz ±3dB; 45-50kHz -6dB Impedance: 8 ohms (min 3.7) Sensitivity: 88dB (2.83V/1m) Power handling: 30-120 watts unclipped (recommended amplifier power) Cabinet: Bass reflex (rear port) Dimensions (hwd): 403 x 200 x 285mm Weight (each): 8.9kg Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
