    FS: B&W, Yammy Amp/CD combo - $350

    SOLD pending payment and collection. Cheers.
  5. Item: B&W, Yammy Amp/CD combo - $350 Location: Melbourne - Albert Park Price: $350 ono Item Condition: varies - fair to good. Reason for selling: NLR and need space Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This combo is perfect for the shed, spare room etc. I had everything from new but it is old. The Yammies both made in Japan as they were in 1990 when I got them. The CD is excellent and plays beautifully. It comes with the remote that works. The Amp is working and I am playing it in a spare room. It sounded really scratchy to begin in left channel but it would not have been turned on for 20 years. It is playing now and maybe just needs to be warmed up again. When I last check it sounded great through B speakers instead of A. I cannot find the remote but know I have it. If found will include. I have not tested anything other than CD input but others should be okay. UPDATE: I THINK THE LEFT CHANNEL HAS AN ISSUE ON AMP. IT IS SCRATCHY AND GOES IN/OUT. IT IS DEFINITELY THE AMP AS I SWAPPED SPEAKERS AND THEY SOUND FANTASTIC OUT OF RIGHT CHANNEL. IT MAY BE SIMPLE FIX, I REALLY DON'T KNOW. PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND AS I DON'T WANT PEOPLE TO BE DISAPPOINTED. I have given both Yammies a good clean. There are scratches on them as would be expected but look pretty good straight on. I also will include the interconnect and speaker cables as seen. The B&W's 602s are playing well and sound great. No damage to cones/tweeter but there are scratches on the box here and there from storage over years. One of the screens is also broken but does stay on. They do still sound great to me. I got these in the late 90's. I need all this gone. Will not seperate so if you want one thing, take the lot and i hope you enjoy it. This is pick up only from Albert Park VIC. If sold for asking, $35 donation to SNA. Cheers, Rod Pictures:
  6. Item: Audiolab M-DAC - $520 plus post/fees Location: Melbourne - Albert Park. Price: $520 plus post costs with insurance up to $500 (for both our protection) and paypal fees of 3% Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Just purchased a Pioneer pd - 70ae that has ESS DAC Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I just came back to hifi and this was my first stand alone DAC. Was blown away with what they can do. I just purchased a new Pioneer that has ESS Sabre DAC chip as well so this now excess to my needs. I believe it is latest software update (by previous owner) and I have original box. Perfect for chilling your dog - see last pic! I see a few of these have come and sold quickly recently at higher price but I got this in April from HotJ on here and selling at same price I paid plus any expenses. Prefer pick up and preference will be given to that. If need to post, can only arrange on Tuesday as flat out tomorrow. Will need to let you know cost to post but will only do so if you also take out insurance up to $500. Any questions just ask. Cheers. Rod Pictures:

    New Pioneer SACD player.

    So you having nothing made in china in your house. Kudos to you mate.
  8. Wonderful lead [email protected] Spoke to Bowen and he remembered you. I got same pricing. Under 3k delivered to Melbourne. Here in a week. Cheers.
  9. Cheers mate. Funnily enough I rang Sterophonics friday. Asked about the cdp which they didn't have but would kindly take my coin now and "should" get one next week faster than anyone else cause they have a great relationship with Pioneer. When i asked about cost it was like listening to Basil Fawlty. I let the bloke run out of stumbling reasons why they can't give a discount, gave a chuckle and told him "sure, I'll just take all that in". Will follow up your lead, thanks.
  10. If you mean Maximus that you scored the Pioneer under 3k I'd be keen to hear where from. Best i can see online and a few calls is $3388 with the usual ramblings about price pressure etc from supplier.

    Advice on streaming device

    Just went to Klapp. None in store but more on the way. Be interesting as I saw one. No reason cannot run both coaxial to external DAC for "better" quality chip and RCA to amp for MQA although running off Node DAC. Be a good way to see if much difference at all.

    Thanks guys for your input. BTW, I see Klapp AV has the Node 2 brand new for $764.

    Advice on streaming device

    I just read up on Bluesound Node 2 and it seems great with Tidal. Says it can also do MQA. If I played MQA through Tidal wireless to Node 2 and then connected to external DAC via coaxial, would I still end up with MQA sound? The DAC is via the Pioneer PD-70AE which I am also considering purchasing. Sorry for probably stupid questions, but all this tech is like a foreign language to me!
