  1. Item: A pair of Sony SS F-60 ES floorstanding speakers (Elevated Standard range) and a Sony CDP-CE525 5-disc CD changer / player / transport (comes with a remote) Location: Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, NSW Price: REDUCED TO $400 $520 ONO. I'm not offended by offers, so please don't hesitate to message me. That being said, you may not want to miss out on these, as they don't come up for sale very often in this part of the world. Item Condition: Great to Excellent condition Reason for selling: I need money. Money is good. I have many speakers. Speakers are also good, but money is slightly more important right now. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash after full demo/inspection. This process will likely be accompanied by the old obligatory lengthy conversation about hi-fi gear. In light of this, do set aside additional time! If you're interstate and particularly keen on these, you'll need to PM me and convince me of your Sony fandom. Extra Info: Really hard to find this Sony ES speaker line in Australia, and in such great condition at that. Can't even remember the last pair of Sony ES floorstanders for sale here on SNA. You'll find that on the used market, the greatest number of examples of this line come from Germany and the Netherlands, where it seems to have been not only made, but more widely distributed. I found this particular model listed in a German 1995/96 Sony catalogue of high-end components ( hfe_sony_es_high_end_hifi_components_1995-96_de.pdf ). It's quite clear from the catalogue that this was one of Sony's top-of-the-line speaker offerings at the time. Two snippet of the specs listed in that catalogue (which, naturally, is in German) are included here: Though it can be hard to interpret the German info I've come across in learning more about these, I believe they are of German design, made in Germany with all Danish Vifa drivers. The frequency response is rated at 32-20,000 Hz , and each cabinet weighs 22.5kg. Not your standard Sony speaker by any means! These are in really nice shape. Cabinets have very, very minimal wear, as is the case with all of the drivers and the grilles. The foam surrounds on the mids have some light wear, but there is no tearing or deformity: they still seem to be going strong, which is why I haven't felt the need to replace them. The speakers sound great: get them off the floor!! Whether you isolate/couple them or use small stands, getting these babies off the floor really opens up the mids and takes any boominess out of the bass. I use 60-80cm stands with them, which makes them look absolutely ridiculously tall but seems to hit the spot for me in terms of sound-stage (BIG). Once correctly set-up, you end up with a performance marked by control and clarity. The CD player is in good shape, with only light wear, and comes with a remote. If you have any questions at all, or would like to set-up a demo time, feel free to message me. I have plenty of other hi-fi that I'm looking to sell, so please do let me know of what things you're looking to add/change within your own setup. Pictures: sony_ss-f60esl_f60esr.pdf

The laser was replaced some years ago; and new laser units are still available (Philips VAM 1202 Transport) for around $40 on eBay. No marks on the front or rear, but a couple on lhs and top as shown. Includes Remote, Owners manual, and original packaging. Pictures:

  10. Item: Rotel RCD-911 CD player (my personal one) Location: Perth Price: $799 Shipping over East to capital cities $29 fully insured. Item Condition: Excellent, almost as new. Reason for selling: Need money. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct transfer Extra Info: For those who do not know what this CD player is, brief explanation; This is top of the range Rotel filled with top quality parts and in such concentration, that normally you just cannot find it anywhere, even in the best brands. It is not for tinkerers as all the tinkering has been already done at the factory: 1. DAC - Burr-Brown PCM-63P (x 2) - best DAC of the day and still one of the best, surrounded by Rubycon Black Gate capacitors (pic 4) 2. Pacific Microsonics PMD100 HDCD decoder chip and Nichicon Find Gold capacitors (pic 5) 3. Power supply; Nichicon Great Supply 4700µF capacitors (pic 6) and ridiculously oversized, 2" tall transformer with 5 secondaries (pic 7) 4. Output stage; Burr-Brown OPA2604AP op-amps with Nichicon Muse (top-of-the-line) caps (pic 8) These ordinary looking red MKP caps are German WIMA. 5. Balanced output 6. Adjustable dither 7. Switchable digital output; both S/PDIF (coaxial) and Toslink (optical). Inside, this is the best looking piece of electronics I have seen in over 30 years of working in the field of electronics. Although admittedly some Marantz KI units look flashier due to their "copper" chassis - they do not compare as quality components are scarce there. This has been my personal CD player since new, for over 15 years and I have paid for it (then) A$1200 (RRP was $1499). Box, manual, remote, receipt all available. 12 month warranty for local purchasers - same as for all of my items offered for sale here. Pictures:

  18. Item: Cambridge Audio 540A V2 & 540C V2 Location: Mitcham Vic Price: $300 for amp and $250 for the CD player. By both and I'll throw in a Yamaha AM/FM tuner Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Great bang for buck here as a 2nd system or budget start into quality components. I bought this combo to power a second system in my kids rumpus room upstairs which it has done beautifully powering either Whatmough floorstanders or Osborn Eos stand mounts, both now sold though so these need to go too. We were finding the use was mainly to play CD's to our girls while they feel asleep and then we would have to go back upstairs to turn everything off. We now have a basic Sonos Play 3 there which can be controlled from downstairs. I have original packaging for the CD player and have to see if the remote is in the box as they are universal, 1 remote controls both units so 1 was never used. Pictures:
  19. Item: Simaudio Moon Supernova RS CD player / DACLocation: AdelaidePrice: $3300 ($10,000 RRP)Item Condition: Excellent (minor fading on front font)Reason for selling: Gears shufflingPayment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD OnlyExtra Info: This is the one of the top of the line CD player offered by Simaudio. Plenty of raving reviews online, I use it for CD player and also as a separate DAC from my media player (feed in from Oppo BD-105D). It is exceptional sounding, very analogue. Chalk and cheese compared to the on board DAC offered by the Oppo. The Oppo 105 DAC was not listenable in comparison. It was also significantly better than the NAD M51 DAC which ended up being used for my headphone setup. This is very heavy player, I think it is around 15-20kg. Currently just seeing if there are any interests as I need to see if I can come up with sufficient fund to reshuffle some gears around. Note: This is the "RS" edition, which has improved parts than the normal edition. The MOON SuperNova CD Player is a fully-balanced differential design, representing the next generation of high-performance audio components. The SuperNova raises the bar on the CD Red Book digital standard, producing an astonishing level of sonic performance with no equal in its price range. This achievement is the result of extensive R&D yielding new proprietary technologies, the use of the very finest electronic parts available and a powerful 24-bit/352.8kHz internal upsampling circuit. Further raising the bar, the MOON SuperNova can be fully integrated into a custom-install environment via an RS-232 port. As well, a plethora of user selectable cosmetic options are available at the time of purchase. SuperNova Technical Features · Internal upsampling which uses 24-bit/352.8kHz processing · Ultra high-perfromance 24-bit BurrBrown PCM1798 DAC/digital filter · Alpha Clocking System with PLL synchronization yielding under 25 PPM of jitter · Digital input for use as a digital-to-analog converter with a music server or external transport · Fully balanced differential digital and analog circuitry in a dual-mono design · Separate digital & analog power supplies using independent toroidal transformers · Power supply voltage regulation includes i²DCf (Independent Inductive DC Filtering); There is one inductor dedicated to each integrated circuit type component (DAC, Op-Amp, etc.) in the audio circuit's signal path; 20 stages in all · A very short capacitor-free signal path using a DC servo circuit and proprietary 6dB/octave analog filter · RS-232 port for (i) full unsolicited bidirectional feedback and (ii) firmware updates · IR input for external control · SimLink™ controller port for 2-way communications with other compatible MOON components · 4-Layer printed circuit boards with pure copper tracings for a much shorter signal path; This results in greater sonic accuracy and a dramatically improved signal-to-noise ratio · Ultra rigid chassis construction to minimize the effects of external vibrations · Accurate matching of the very finest quality electronic components in a symmetrical circuit design · Includes FRM-2 remote control. Pictures: Attached photo of actual unit (except the last one, which is for reference of the back panel)

  24. Part of the story of my acquisition of the Krell KAV 300 can be found on the thread below, the rest of this thread continues on from where it ends. http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php?/topic/58949-krell-kav-300-cd-player/#entry1033192 I was fairly excited Friday afternoon, and why shouldn't I be? I had a 'new' cd player with a serious rep all fixed and ready to go and no shortage of challenger players to put it up against, surely fun times would ensue. The first challenger (or 'comparison partner' if you prefer) was my old faithful, the Consonance cd120. I started out using the Burson Conductor as a pre and Bills Arion S250 for the power feeding to my Lenehan S2Rs via Redgum speaker cables. The differences were subtle, very subtle. So damn subtle in fact that was forced to change cables between the Burson and the Arion in an effort to hear more and that caused far more difference that I was hearing between the players (which didn't help at all). But the final death knell was sounded on this combination as I realized I didn't have a remote to use to switch from one player to the other, I had to be right in front of the gear rack to press the input button on the Conductor, so things had to change. Out went the Conductor and in went the little Myryad Z240. Any WTF's raised by that sentence? The explanation is simple, I'd spent the day previous carting around floorstander speakers and while I knew I should just up the ante straight to the Halcros, well..., the Halcros are just so damn heavy, and the Myryad isn't. So there you have it, laziness as a motivational factor should never be underestimated! So with the little Myryad performing pre duties I could relax back in my recliner and switch inputs via the remote at will... or could I? The Krell has this nifty little feature where you can program a play loop, you designate a start and finish via specific buttons on the remote and once you've done that it plays loop after loop until you tell it to stop. Not a problem I thought, since I never really planned to use such a function, but (and this is a big but) by pure coincidence that loop function is activated by the input change function of the Myryad remote. So, comfortable and frustrated is where I was (I seem to recall that laziness has placed me in this position in the past too) and with no meaningful results to speak of I was forced to man up and grunt and drag the Halcros into place. The final set up. There are one or two things that need to be said regarding this Krell too, and they don't necessarily have anything to do with sound quality. This cd player runs hotter than many amplifiers (and it remains hot in standby mode too, none of that power saving eco-friendliness to be found here) so anyone living south of the permafrost should note that this puppy does not want to live in an enclosed cabinet. When I first started I placed the cd120 on top of the Krell (so I could place them on the same shelf) but I was forced to move it to a shelf of its own when the cd120 started to stew in its own juice. Whatever the Krell is doing it definitely does it in class A. Looks like I'll have to split this post up, Sunday lunch is calling. I'll have to come back and edit in a couple of paragraphs later. Edit: Now that I'm far less hungry than before, time to continue. So last night, starting just after 8pm, I sat down and I compared, swapping back and forth from one player to another several times within each song and hitting the rewind button quite a few times. By 11pm I had worked my way through almost 10 songs (yep, 3 hours to get through 40 minutes of music, also half a pack of M&Ms, the remains of a packet of chips and at least a liter of Pepsi Max but none of those are really relevant to the task at hand) and was finally making some progress. The cd120 has a slight forwardness to the upper mids and a slight emphasis on impact that gives it a slightly more dynamic feel when compared to the Krell. This makes it, IMO, a player better suited to rock music. That more immediate, more dynamic feel extends to the vocals as well by the way, it doesn't really come into play on softer vocals but on strong ones the effect is certainly noticeable and while it could be argued that this effect is artificial it certainly doesn't sound artificial, it makes rock music just a touch more so. The Krell has a slightly more laid back, some would call it more natural, nature, it doesn't give the focus of the cd120 but it conveys a deeper sound stage and fills out the middle and decay of notes more effectively. The Krell also has a slightly lower volume (or weaker signal) than the cd120 (probably more correct to say that the cd120 has a slightly higher than standard output actually) an adjustment of about 1db seemed to level them but those different impact characteristics actually made it fairly difficult to set the volumes by ear. A good way to illustrate the difference between the two is, if the music contains a growling electric guitar then the cd120 will give you a 'Growl' effect, while the Krell will give you a 'groowwll' effect. I'm going to keep listening and I hope to pick up more differences of note but my initial findings are simple. The cd120 retails at about $1300 and the Krell (when it was new) retailed at about $3.5K. While I see the Krell being better at softer music I don't see it being worth the difference. Now that you can pick up a new cd120 for the same price as a 2nd hand Krell then the choice becomes a little harder, but not a lot harder. The Consonance for listening that is upbeat and dynamic and the Krell for music that is slower (or less forward), it's really as simple as that. And now we'll have to wait and see if a few more days of familiarization manages to change my mind. It has happened before.
  25. Item: Bel Canto CD2 - Price drop! Location: Hobart, Tasmania Price: $1500.00 (down from $1800.00) Item Condition: Very, very good, 8/10 (see below) Reason for selling: to fund a stand alone DAC Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale is my beloved Bel Canto CD2 in fantastic condition. Purchased from Audio Market Place in 2009 via Ebay - it was a demo model. Sounds great, wonderful to use and has never missed a beat. The only issues to speak of are some fine scuff marks on the top of the unit where the puck has been placed between changing cds, and a dimple/dent on the remote control just above the name - see pics, I have no idea where that came from. Unfortunately the fine scuff marks have not been captured on the photo very well, but are very light. Comes with original wall wart power supply, manual and original packaging (double-boxed). I always wanted to pair it with a BC DAC3 but it never happened. Pictures:
