  1. Looks like selling audio gear in TM is much faster than here, put them on TM now. Sold more than NZ$12K audio gear in TM. In here, one hundred dollar stuff if I got lucky. :-(
  2. 1), Antipodes WEKA interconnects (1m) A very nice pair of an earlier Antipodes cable. As described by Mark Jenkins at the time I purchased them, “The WEKA is our highest selling Standard Series cable, using gold plated silver wire. Insulation is raw unbleached cotton for unmatched low dielectric effects - far superior to any plastic insulation materials such as teflon. Termination is by gold plated copper Eichmann Bullet Plugs.” looking for NZ$160 plus shipping($7.5 for NI, $10 for SI) 2), Goertz Triode Quartz Silver interconnects (1m) A 1m RCA-terminated pair of Goertz silver interconnects. These use a twisted flat conductor configuration, with the two conductors laid back to back in a helix. The conductors are separated by a ground, and the three are separated by layers of flat dielectric. Apparently, this means that the design minimizes crosstalk and RF interference, but also keeps inductance low. These were $350 new, so priced to sell. looking for NZ$150 plus shipping($7.5 for NI, $10 for SI) Both cables are in mint condition. Attached files
  3. http://www.trademe.co.nz/electronics-photography/home-audio/amplifiers-tuners/auction-662217682.htm PM me if you want to buy it off TM, you get TM fee discount.
  4. With the SA102, Class A sounds better than Class A/B, easy to hear the difference, but it's really hot and power consume.
  5. I own 8200p, sold many years ago. I own sa102, sold ,which is the $3700 one. If you give me 10x8200p, I rather just want one sa102. That's the difference.

  7. The problem is when people claim they can hear the difference, but no way to confirm/verify it. Because they do not want to use blind test. So you believe it as you SAY SO!
  8. Output voltage: 0.3MV / Frequency response 15- 50,000 Hz / 100 ohms / 1.8 to 2.2 Grams Tracking Force The Audio-Technica AT33EV cartridge is thoughtfully and thoroughly designed, meticulously and exquisitely crafted so that each Component part enhances the overall cartridge's ability to track, trace and reproduce signal from the Record grooves accurately, perfectly as technologically possible. It is a perfectionist's cartridge. Frequency Response: 15-50,000 Hz Channel Separation: 30 DB (1 kHz) Vertical Tracking Force: 1.8-2.2 grams (2.0 grams standard) Recommended Load Impedance: 100 Ohms (with Head amplifier connected) Output: 0.3 (mV at 1 kHz, 3.54 cm/sec) Channel Balance: 0.5 dB (1 kHz) Stylus Shape: MicroLineTM 0.3 x 0.7 mil nude elliptical Cantilever: Duralumin tapered pipe Mount: Half-inch Purchased new two weeks ago around NZ$589, mount on TT for less than 1 hour. It suppose to replace my "fault" cartridge, but Neil on Turn-on Audio fixed the real problem which is the TT. So I don't need it anymore. Asking for $470+shipping, if not sold here then I will list it in TM.
  9. What price he's looking for? $8K? Try his luck in TradeMe then...
  10. Nuforce 9 V3 SE Monoblock Power Amplifiers http://www.trademe.co.nz/electronics-photography/home-audio/amplifiers-tuners/auction-566732235.htm
  11. BTW, Amarra, Pure Music, Audirvana Plus provide xx dyas trial, believe your own ear in your won house...
  12. Yes, 40HZ. What I'm talking about are: 1), Performance. To get better performance, files should be fully cache, loaded to memory before play. I recall the last two didn't support it. 2), Development of software. Decibel works like sort of shell apps on top of iTunes. Fidelia is lack of feature and ugly GUI/user interface. The other players also work with iTunes but they Proxy to iTunes with their own core component.
  13. To release the "power" of 24B/96,192K files, Amarra is the road. Installed, A/B compare these players, Amarra 2.4.5, Pure Music 1.89b, Audirvana Plus 1.4.3, Decibel.v1.2.11, Audiofile.Engineering.Fidelia.v1.2.1 Amarra is the winner, the last two are toy for kids.
