  1. Further information: The Marantz PM8006 is the current top of the line in the standard HiFi component range (before jumping into the Reference range). This amp is Made in Japan and has an excellent quality, super low noise MM Phono stage as well as 5 standard high quality, low noise stereo line inputs. This model also has the capability to seperate the pre and power sections so can be used as either a Pre or a power amp as well as an integrated solution. The client has elected to go with a high powered stereo mono block amp solution - so this beautiful integr
  2. Further information: The PMC 25.23 slim tower speaker was the best selling in the range for us here in store... delivering a neutral and spacious sound from a slimline full Walnut veneered cabinet this speaker wins on both sound and gorgeous looks. With a current rrp of $6599 these are an incredible bargain for one lucky person. PMC is an acronym for Professional Monitoring Company and was founded in 1991 by Peter Thomas of the BBC and Adrian Loader of FWO Bauch. The combination of knowledge and a life-long passion for music led to the production of PMC’s first pr

  4. Further information: STEREONET SPECIAL The PMC 25.26 is the top of the line in the 25 series and delivers amazingly neutral sound that has layers of detail and plenty of pace/rhythm/timing. These come with all original cartons etc (so can be shipped at buyer's expense within Australia) as well as the famous 20 YEAR WARRANTY (must be registered with PMC online). The current retail price in Australia is $16 489. There is a slight mark on the right hand side panel of one of the speakers (see pic). PMC Twenty5.26 Floorstandin

  6. These Stasis topology amps sound great... Thanks Nelson Pass.
  7. Dybavector do not do retips... They do offer a discount off the same.cart or higher up in the range when the stylus wears out.
  8. Hi Chris, I do agree with the quality of the wonderful 205mk3 as compared to many new carts on the market up to $2500. As you mentioned - the original cantilever is a hollow vapour deposited boron tube... however the stylus was only a bonded elliptical. The Jico SAS Boron is still a bonded SAS (MICRO line) on Boron cantilever... which I have personally found to be a little better at soundstage width and depth as well as a bit better control at the frequency extremes. I also have the Jico SAS/S which is a nude mounted SAS stylus on a Sapphire cantilever.
  9. Hi, The 205cmk3 is an incredibly good cartridge .. and luckily, Jico Japan make better than original replacement stylii for them (the NEO SAS/S elevates this cart up a notch or two). I own this combo and it handily beats the 2M Black and Quintet Black (in my setup)... in fact it rivals the Dynavector 17d3 and Cadenza Blue in terms of soundstage, midrange palpability, air, detail and dynamics. Whilst the Bass is excellent quality, fast and detailed with no bloom... it is just a touch lighter in depth and grunt than the other carts mentioned. So yes - definitely

  11. Hi Andrew, we have a PrimaLuna Dialogue Pre-Amp that I have just traded in (literally this week) for a client who has upgraded to the new EVO400 pre-amp (he runs XLR Balanced amplification now and needed the XLR feature of the new EVO400). I was about to advertise it in the commercial classifieds - but saw you were after one. The unit was purchased from us here in the store in March 2019 so is around 18 months old and in excellent 2nd hand condition. If you are interested - please PM me and I can get you pics and pricing before I post it publicly in the
