  1. Running focal electra 1028 with Devialet expert 120,connected with van den hull speaker cables it sounded brash strident,fatiguing.Changed to esoteric thick cables dark,rolled off top(too much) muddy mixed up mids and floppy bass.As a last resort i invested in some hexlink cardas cables and that ABSOLUTELY fixed the sound.It sound louder? Better defined better separation,and it sounds MUSICAL..I am a happy camper.The Devialet IS very revealing and fussy ,don't believe otherwise.Now I'm just curious what the new top of the range cardas would be like.
  2. Item: pioneer blueray player Location:3152 Victoria Price: $250 ono Item Condition:secondhand Reason for selling:no longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:i purchased this as a spare so not used very much, it works fine reading cdr's no problem. This was very expensive when new as it uses Wolfson dacs wich are audiophile grade and giving good picture and sound as it is or you can use it with a separate dac as a transport.It comes with an original remote .Last one that sold was in UK and it sold on eBay for an equivalent of $300 including postage (and had a universal remote not original and the top of the player was scratched badly).At the other end of the scale there is one on eBay Germany and he's asking something like $1200!!??I don't have the box but i can pack and send it at buyers expense,audition and pickup is welcomed from Wantirna Victoria.

  5. Item: Dynaudio Focus 140 Location:Victoria 3152 Price: $1200 Item Condition:second hand Reason for selling:nlr Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:in very good condition and sounding as you would expect from one of the top manufacturers of high end speakers, there are many glowing reviews from Stereophyle and others.With the right amplifier they sound beautiful detailed smooth top ,neutral and accurate midrange and fast but deep bass.The speaker boxes are solid,stiff and with non parallel sides to reduce standing waves, they are wraped in real wood veneer not vinyl like the cheaper series.They use the upgraded drivers from esotar tweeters.They work with most medium power amplifiers,however carefull matching with a synergistic amp will make them sing to their very high potential.I have very good results with Sansui Au G99x (170watt and extremely low distortion).If you want, i could sell you the amplifier as well ,it was serviced last year by Dallas (Clarke audio)replaced a handful of electrolytic caps and biased and gave a clean bill of health,he also mentioned that Vitus amps use the same topology schematic. I have the foam vent inserts and owners pamphlet but no boxes.I can pack and send at buyers expense.Alternatively you can pick up from Wantirna Victoria 3152.Thanks Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  6. Item: Vtl stereo tube pre preamp and Yaqin ms 22b valve phonostage Location:Victoria 3152 Price: vtl $170 SOLD and Yaqin $120 still available Item Condition: second hand Reason for selling:no longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:The VTL is to be used with a low output mc or mm cartridge in front of a normal mm phonostage such a s the Yaqin i am also selling. THE Yaqin can be used on it's own with a normal moving magnet cartridge.I don't have any technical information about the VTL except that it works fine,for the Yaqin you can find information on the net.

  7. I decided to allow interstate buyers to purchase the speakers without stands for $1100.I will pack them as well as i can for postage. Cheers
  8. If a single 300b per channel probably not enough power to drive the speakers properly. I guess 10watts is the minimal. I tried a 5watt amplifier and it wasn't enough
  9. Thanks for the good words,i hope someone will take it and enjoy the wonderful sound
  10. Item: AudioNote an/j Location:victoria3152 Price: $1400 or $1100 without stands Item Condition:second hand Reason for selling:Devialet+ Atohm gt1 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:they are in good physical condition and work fine,they would suit somone with a low power valve amplifier (10watts or more)They work well against the wall or in the corners. They have plenty of bass and the midrange is beautiful. Thy are 92,93db efficiency so an easy load.They come with the original recommended stands that are really heavy beasts hence pickup only.The stands could do with a bit of black pain as there is a bit of surface rust,they are so massive they woud survive a nuclear blast. There's a reason why Audio Note is still selling these and the an/e after 30 odd years. Their sound is still natural as only the best.You can buy repla ement components from AN uk and they would march it to your exact speakers.They records of measurements for each speaker they sell. These speakers don't need anything. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  11. Item: Scott valve tuner type 350b Location:victoria3152 Price: 200 Item Condition:second hand Reason for selling:no longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Extra Info:this is the warmest most analog tuner i ever heard ,it's working fine except after about 20minutes it drifts so you need to readjust the knob,i don't have anybody who can look at it to fix it.It is usa 110volt item,i will give you a step down transformer to get you going. I droped the stepdown transformer on the ground and the plastic hosing case cracked. It is working no problem Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  12. Item: mullard 6sl7 Location:Melbourne 3152 Price: $350 Item Condition:second hand as new Reason for selling:not needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:these are the most wanted and best sounding most long lasting 6sl7 ever made. And you can't find them anymore. According to my technician they measure as new on his valve tester,the readings are written on them.

  13. I think I'm right about efficiency with the Devialet and whatever speakers you're using, most people with low to moderate efficiency speakers quickly go and upgrade to higher power models from the lower ones. .Sir Sanders doesn't feel the need because his Avatgardes are already so efficient.
  14. Ok,so i had a chance to listen to the Devialet for a few days. My first impressions, CLEAN sound,but not without warmth, does the hi fi thing really well (imaging, soundstage, depth, separation).I tried the amp with both of my speakers and at this moment i much prefer the Audio Note an/j to the Dynaudios.In my room at this time i think the Devialet 120 needs speakers of 90db+efficiency. With my 92db audio notes i'm listening at between -15to-5db on the volume control .I'm also finding that i have to adjust the volume more often depending on the recording. I'm using the tone control +2for bass and -2 for treble. I think my tweeters are a bit harsh. Now i'm thinking at buying some Atohm gt1's, anyone using the combination ?I haven't tried SAM yet,i'm a bit of an illiterate as far as computers go..I don't know how to drag the configuration on to the memory card. I'll figure it out eventually. Anyway thanks to everyone for your advice, keep it coming
