  1. OK - Hope you are on the mend ASAP. Just let me know when you are ready to have the speakers shipped to you and I'll get them underway. I looked to the thread above, but no luck as yet.
  2. @eman Ian - very sorry to hear about the loss of your vinyl collection & vintage stereo set-up in the recent bushfires. I'm sure there are enough people on SNA that have something sitting in a cupboard that they no longer need that we should at least be able to put together some sort of system for you. I have a set of bookshelf speakers (Woodland Audio) that I can ship to you if you can PM me a suitable address - they are nothing fancy, but there is some 'history' behind the brand and they sound remarkably good for what they are. Maybe I can ship to @t_mike ? Not sure how we can open up this discussion further in SNA?
  3. @StereoInOz , @t_mike & @bizzibee - thanks for the 'plug' - maybe I should put the price up!
  4. Thanks - they really are a lovely sounding speaker.
  5. Item: Infinity Kappa 6.1i Three Way Floor Standers (Black) Location: Brisbane Price: $850.00 + shipping if required. Item Condition: Overall 9/10 (see more detail below) Reason for selling: Have some new toys on the way. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only or Bank Transfer Extra Info: A very nice set of Kappa 6.1i speakers - the cabinets (polygon shape with lovely retro 'fluted' corners) are a solid 9+/10, grills are also 9+/10 with original badges in place. The 200mm drivers (refoamed) are a 9+/10 as are the Emit tweeters. The Kappa PolyDome mids are 'typical' of Infinity Kappa speakers of this age (approx 1993) and show the yellowing of the face material. This does not affect the performance in any way. (My older Kappa 7 speakers have exactly the same yellowing.) I'd classify these as a mid-sized stand speaker. The speakers have insert threads in the base to allow direct fitment of spikes. (They are imperial thread & I have a non-original set to go with the speakers.) Speakers can be demo'd at Moorooka (Brisbane). Shipping, if required, would basically be me dropping them at Pack & Send as I would not pack these size speakers myself. (My Kappa 7 are bigger and were shipped by P&S, from an SNA member in Adelaide, with great packaging.) Photos are part of the description. Tech info: Nominal Impedance: 6 ohms Power Rating: 30 to 200 watts RMS Crossover Frequencies: 500Hz, 4.5kHz Frequency Response: 45Hz-35kHz +/-2dB Sensitivity: 89dB 2.8V/1 meter 1x - EMIT-R Tweeter with min/max adjustment on rear of cabinet 1x - 3" (7.6cm) Polydome Midrange with min/max adjustment on rear of cabinet 1x - 8" (25.4.5cm) IMG Woofer Dimensions: 38"H x 12-3/16"W" x 9-7/32"D (with grille) m(H) x 40cm(W) x 23.4cm(D) Weight 18.6kg Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  6. Item: Luxman 308 (L-308) Integrated Vintage Amplifier 1973 (Very rare in Australia) Location: Brisbane Price: $1500.00 + shipping costs if required. Item Condition: Excellent For Age Reason for selling: Too many Luxman Amps.... Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This Luxman 308 (rear panel marked as L-308) was originally purchased from Vintage Audio Repair (Netherlands) after an 'internal' restoration (caps, etc) and used in one of my systems until late 2019. It was then serviced, with anything needing replacement replaced, by John at Vintage Audio Repairs & Restorations (Brisbane). While John had the amp I did some work on the wooden case, bead-blasted the metal grill and repainted it. The photos will show the wooden case is not perfect - with a few corner blemishes, however it easily passes the '6ft test' and for its age looks great. Performance wise it is a cracker and is a classic example of what Luxman was doing in the early 70's before Alpine got involved. Photos are part of the description. The internal photos are from the first work done on the amp. Please note that the Luxman 'kettle cord input connection' (which was like a two pin Accuphase plug) has been changed to a standard IEC fitting for ease of sourcing power cords locally. Specs from the Luxman data base: Power output: 55 watts per channel into 8Ω (stereo) Frequency response: 10Hz to 50kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.03% Damping factor: 40 Input sensitivity: 2.5mV (MM), 100mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 65dB (MM), 80dB (line) Dimensions: 485 x 320 x 165mm Weight: 12.5kg Inputs: 2 x Phono (one with setting adjustment on rear panel), 2 x Aux, 1 x Tuner Some info on the somewhat unique Linear Equaliser: Linear Equalizer is a 5-step up or down "tilt" to the preset RIAA curve, rotating the 1kHz-centered frequency response up or down : more bass & less treble or more treble & less bass. There is too much compression and standardization today to justify a Linear Equalizer, but given the highly variable response curve of the recordings back then, this surely is uselful with original vinyl recordings.

  7. Item: Cambridge Audio DacMagic 100 (Silver) Location: Brisbane Price: $180 + Postage if required Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Bought the same unit in black to suit new system setup look..... Current retail around $300+/- Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought the black version to suit a new setup, so have simply taken the new black one out of the box and put my silver one back in - so power supply, manuals, etc are all new items. Tech info from website: Thanks to a Wolfson 24-bit DAC, a 24-bit/96kHz driverless USB Audio 1.0 input and S/PDIF and TosLink digital inputs, the DacMagic 100 takes the sound from your computer, iPod, TV and other digital devices and adds detail, depth and added clarity to give you a true audio experience.

  8. Item: Schiit Mani Phono Pre Amp for MM & MC Location: Brisbane Price: $130 + Postage if required. Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Have picked up an amp with a nice MC stage so now surplus to my needs. Can post Australia wide. Current retail around $270. Tech Info from Schiit Website: Prepare to rewrite the value equation in phono preamplifiers. Schiit’s new Mani gives you the flexibility you need for both moving-magnet and moving-coil cartridges, together with exceptionally accurate, low-noise performance—for far less than you’d expect! Accepting All Cartridges! Many low-cost phono preamps are only good for typical moving-magnet (MM) cartridges. They don’t have the gain needed for moving coil (MC), or the flexibility for high-output MM cartridges like Decca, or high-output MC cartridges that that might end up somewhere in the middle of the gain range. Mani, with 4 switchable gain modes, (30, 42, 47, and 59dB) is ready for any cartridge you can throw at it. Accurate, Quiet Passive RIAA Network Mani’s RIAA network is implemented fully passively. What that means is there are no poles in the feedback loop, for more consistent sonic performance. Coupled with precision 2% film capacitors, 0.5% thin-film resistors, and super low-noise gain stages, Mani delivers superb accuracy and performance, even well beyond its modest price. Made in USA By “made in USA,” we mean made in USA. That goes for everything we make. No excuses. No “assembled in USA” weasel-wording. The vast majority of the total production cost of our products—chassis, boards, assembly, etc—goes to US companies manufacturing in the US, from local suppliers only minutes away.

  9. I have seen these in the 'flesh' and they are, as Chris describes them, in VGC for their age. Even my wife was impressed - but living in apartment, well..... I have bought a couple of sets of JBLs from Chris and the most recent set (4313B) are on my 'never to be sold' list.
  10. Item: B&W CM6 S2 Speakers (White) + matching B&W Stands. Location: Brisbane - but can ship in original packaging. Price: $2000 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Too many speakers - apparently..... Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Condition very good - owned from new - approx 18 months. From a personal point of view these are right up there with 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. Lots of online info if you are not familiar with them - but these are up there with the best. Owned from new and I have the boxes for both the speakers and stands so can ship Australia wide at buyers' expense. Can be demo'd in Tennyson, Brisbane. Stands come with both metal spikes and rubber insulator 'domes' and the speakers can be attached to the stands with the factory fasteners supplied. The CM6 S2 has recently been replaced by the B&W 705 speakers that sell (RSP) for $3499 & $899 for the stands, so this set is less than half the price of buying the new version. Pics form part of the description and guide to overall condition. 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.
