  1. Further information: Excellent sounding big floor stander from Focal (Made in France). This speaker is pretty tall so requires a medium size room to breath. Excellent for both home theatre and purely 2 channel music listening. I don't have the original packaging so this is strictly for local pick up only. There are 1 slight scratch on the side of one of the speaker as shown in the attached photos. Specs - https://www.focal.com/sites/www.focal.fr/files/shared/catalog/document/chorus_826v-specification_sheet.pdf Reviews - https://www.techradar.com/au/reviews/audio-visual/hi-fi-and-audio/hi-fi-and-av-speakers/focal-chorus-826-v-98296/review Happy to demo for members with good feedback. Price of $1300 is firm . As a price guide, there is a model 726 which is lower than this model is selling currently in Ebay for $2200.

  2. Keeping this CD Player. Although I have sold the A5.5 Int amp lately, I am keeping this CD player as I realized I need a warm sounding CD player.
  3. No problem at all. Great to know . T he new 24 actually has a bit more bite at the top end, more bass output , soundstage is much higher and wider, however if you are a person who prefers a warmer sounding speaker, then this older version is the way to go. I actually like this 23 in a small room especially suited when playing vocals and classical. When I need more bass, I just play it with the REL T7i. This is a speaker I would keep to swap with my Harbeth 30.1 and Wharfedale Linton every now and then, if only my boss wifey would allow me to keep it so I don't aggressively advertised this. :-)

  5. Item: Musical Fidelity A5.5 CD Player Location: Sydney (2127) Price: 1200 Item Condition: Very good condition. Reason for selling: Too many CD players. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Sorry realised that I need a CD player that has a warm presentation and this MF CD Player via its valve output stage is something I am going to miss. I will keep this. Perfect partner to the MF Integrated Amp or Pre Amp. Has a warm tube like sound when using its RCA output. If you prefer a more revealing sound, then you can used its digital output (Optical or Coaxial). Got the original manual but no original carton. Prefer local pickup but can ship interstate but at the buyer's expense using pack and send. The A5 CD is released in a worldwide limited edition of 1500 pieces. Technically it is one of the best CD players ever made, and, in our opinion, eclipses even its mighty grandfather, the Nu-Vista 3D. The A5 CD player has extremely low jitter, vanishingly low distortion, exemplary linearity and ultra low noise. Its output stage employs the super-quality military-specified mu-vista (6112) tube in a sophisticated circuit configuration similar to the one used in our Tri-Vista SACD player, but improved. The digital data stream is first up-sampled to 192kHz, which moves noise, jitter and distortion artefacts well above the audio band. It is then passed through a new, low noise, low distortion 24-bit dual-differential digital-toanalog convertor, which allows simpler filtering of the analog output. This in turn gives an improved audio response without the need for sharp filters that degrade sound quality. The result is a CD player which gives a smoother response than previously possible with none of the “hardness” of other players.

  6. You mean run it together with a REL T9i ? If your amp has a sub out which I do for my denon AVR, then you can use Y RCA splitter and run both subs through the RCA connector not the neutrik cable. Then adjust the crossover and phase to suit your environment. Otherwise if you want to use the neutrik High level cable which I haven't tried. If connecting 2 RELs, connect the black wire of each REL to a negative speaker terminal of the corresponding channel; twist together the red and yellow wires of each REL separately and connect each pair to the positive speaker terminal of the corresponding amplifier channel
  7. Item: REL Strata 3 Subwoofer Location:Sydney Price: 800 Item Condition:Very good condition Reason for selling: Not need anymore Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Musical subwoofer for music listening as well as for home theater. Made in England. I am the original owner and bought this from Audio Connection. Never been serviced. It has a LFE input as well as a Speakon connector around 5m long that connects to the speaker binding posts on your integrated/power amplifier. The only issue is the power cable is stuck and can't be detached from the sub. I don't have the original packaging and manual anymore but softcopy of the manual can be downloaded from the web. Prefer local pick up only as it is quite heavy unless you can organise your own courier for transport. SPECIFICATIONS REL STRATA III ENCLUSURE TYPE: Sealed box design VOLUME: 30 Litres INPUT CONNECTORS: 2 Neutrik Speakon and Twin Phonos GAIN CONTROL RANGE (dB): 80 AMPLIFIER: 100 watts RMS, 200 watts Peak , DC Coupled Mosfet DRIVE UNIT: 250mm (10") Long Throw Cast Chassis PHASE: 0 and 180 Degrees PROTECTION: Internal PCB Mounted Fuses with Set-Safe® UNIT WEIGHT: 23 Kgs Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  8. Also got this amazing amp. I can vouch that this matches beautifully with the PMC Twenty 23, PMC Twenty5 24, Wharfedale Linton, and Harbeth 30. Huge soundstage, warm tube sound, non-fatiguing sound and it makes the vocals sounds more forward. Phono stage is excellent as well. Excellent amp value for the money. Sold previously my Audio Research LS7 tube pre and D240 power amp for this beautiful looking amp that even my wife is in love with this amp. :-) I can only dream one day of getting the PMC Twenty5 26 and MC 352 combination but need a bigger room. Im jealous. haha GLWTS.
  9. Item: Musical Fidelity A5.5 Integrated Amplifer Location: Sydney 2127 Price: 1700 Item Condition: Very good condition. Reason for selling: Upgraded to tube based separates Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: A classic integrated amplifier 250 watts at 8 ohms produced by Musical Fidelity. The upgrade from A5 to A5.5 version includes: improved output devices, an enhanced feedback/protection circuit and better low-level channel matching, and also has a USB input for computer-stored music. This amp I would say almost has a tube-like sound with a bit of detail. This can drive speakers with low sensitivity. If your speakers has below 88db sensitivity then this is a perfect match. Im currently using this with PMC Twenty 23 which has 87db sensitivity. This has HT bypass fixed input volume so can be used seamlessly with your AVR. The phono stage is also of high quality. I was using the Rega RP1 with this amp previously. Includes original manual but dont have the original box. https://www.whathifi.com/news/news-musical-fidelity-upgrades-its-a5 Prefer local pickup. Can post to interstate buyers through pack and send but buyer has to pay for the shipping cost. Shipping weight without the box is 17kg. One thing for sure you will enjoy any type of music with this amplifier be it from a vinyl or CD or DAC. Sorry I dont have photos of the back as it is a hassle in taking it off from the hifi rack. Prospective serious buyer can request if required but there lots of photos in the web. Is a perfect aesthetic match to the Musical Fidelity A5.5 or A3 CD Player. Date of Manufacture is Nov 2007.

  10. I found the new PMC Twenty5 24 has more tighter bass and bigger soundstage. I dont find the use of a sub necessary. PMC Twenty 23 is very ideal for small room but a sub like the REL T7i would help. I love both. I want to keep the 23 but my wifey wont allow me. 🙂
