  8. Item: 2x Focal Cub Evo Subwoofers Location: Toorak, Victoria Price: $700 Item Condition: 9/10. Used but excellent condition. Original owner, both units purchased locally (one purchased in April 2018, the other in Feb 2019). Pet / smoke free home, used in a bedroom setup at moderate volumes. Discarded original boxes. Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - COD or Paypal (+Paypal fees). May also be open to Pack and Send but preference is pickup and these are heavy. Extra Info: Powered Subwoofer: The Cub Evo powered subwoofer features a down-firing 8" polyfex woofer powered by a highly efficient, high power 200W Class D amplifier for deep, dynamic bass. The compact bass-reflex enclosure also features a front-firing streamlined port for optimal bass performance. The sub enclosure is made of MDF and features four integrated large rubber feet for very low vibration and resonance. Controls: This Cub Evo powered sub offers volume level control, a variable low-pass crossover (40-200Hz), and a phase switch (0°/180°). All controls are located on the rear-panel of the powered sub. Connections: This Cub Evo features a stereo RCA input. The left RCA input can be used as an LFE input when connecting a receiver with an LFE output and internal crossover. When using only the left LFE input, make sure you set the sub's low-pass crossover to the "LFE" setting. The powered sub's detachable 8' AC power cord will need be plugged into an AC wall outlet. Mounting & Placement Options: By placing Cub Evo powered subs in opposite corners, the room resonances will be excited in a more linear and predictable way. Not only will bass perception be optimal, but this location will also make it possible to boost the bass level by 6dB. If for practical reasons you are not able to place the subwoofer in opposite corners, experiment positioning them in different places within the room until you find the best spot. Integrated rubber feet provide safe placement on your floors. Auto On/Off: The units will automatically power on when it senses an audio signal and automatically power off when there is not audio signal for approximately 20 minutes. User Manual: https://www.focal.com/sites/www.focal.fr/files/shared/catalog/document/sibevo_cubevo_usermanual-notice.pdf Item includes: 2x Subwoofers & 2x Power Cables(AU).

  10. Item: Creek Audio OBH-21SE Special Edition Headphone Amplifier Location: Sydney, Lindfield NSW 2070 Price: $280 (+$25 postage) Item Condition: Great condition, a couple of tiny nicks around the Creek logo Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: I have for sale my Creek OBH-21 SE headphone amp. This is the SE - special edition. I bought it brand new about 10 years ago, and used lightly as I don't listen to headphones too often. The amp is in great condition. It has a couple of tiny nicks, the biggest one is on the Creek logo (see photos). It comes from a smoke, pet and kids free home. The OBH-21 can drive two pairs of low to medium impedance headphones at the same time. I used various headphones over the years, including AKG K702, Sennheiser HD-650 and Hifiman HE-400i. All sounded great with it. I switched to Stax a couple of years ago, which came with their own amp, and the Creek hasn't been getting any use. So the sale. The amp comes with its original box and the OBH Uni power adapter. The adapter has swappable power plugs, but I only have the UK one. I'm happy to post to anywhere in Australia. Pickup also available from Lindfield NSW 2070. Photos:

  16. Item: Focal Little Bird 2.1 System Location: Brisbane Price: $350 250 plus postage Item Condition: Very good (see pics and description below) Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased new nearly 5 years ago (I think it was a $1200 unit back then - although I picked it up for $900) to add decent sound to our TV this has seen use as such but also as a stand alone unit. The sound is quite respectable and versatile with several analog inputs as well as digital and streaming using the dongle (which I have not done for years so don't remember much about it. This has been in the kids room for the TV and Playstation but they never turn it on so as I am on a selling spree I thought I might as well move it on to someone who will use it. It is in very good condition but the gloss plastic smudges and scratches easily. The top of the unit and the remote show evidence of this - although the harsh downlights accentuate it. The speakers look fine. Comes complete with the box, manual, remote, dongle, both sets of stands and brackets for (I think) wall mounting. The main unit can be vertical or horizontal so it is easy to place. https://www.avhub.com.au/product-reviews/smart-home-ideas/focal-bird-21-pack-394900 https://hometheaterreview.com/focal-bird-21-system-reviewed/ Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  17. Item: As new Modwright PH9.0 MM/MC Phono Amp. Location:Mornington Peninsula Price: $3500-$3300 o.n.o. Retail-$5300+ Item Condition: As New. Reason for selling: Going simpler set-up. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased new from Aus. Dist.

  18. Item: Ayre V-3 Power Amplifier Location: Bathurst Price: $2000, now $1750 (lowest price) postage at buyers expense Item Condition: Good, some scratches on the right top of the front fascia (see pictures) Reason for selling: Upgraditis Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: this is one heavy amp but utterly refined. A genuine 100 w/channel let’s this amp drive any speaker I have had with both finesse and authority Hooked up to my Magneplanars it created a deep and wide sound stage getting the last ounce of bass from the notoriously difficult to drive panels. This amp can still hold its own with more modern high end amplifiers. When it was first launched, it created quite a stir with numerous good reviews in the popular magazines. I am not the original owner but I know a little of its history: it appears to have been driving Maggie’s for a large part of its life and it is still going strong. I don’t have the ordinal box or paperwork, but it will be posted very securely. Dont hesitate to contact me for more information if you are interested.

  19. Item: Ayre AX-7e Integrated Amplifier Location: Bathurst Price: $1650, now $1375 (I’ll keep it if it doesn’t sell at this price), postage at buyers expense Item Condition: Good, there are a few scratches and marks (see pictures) Reason for selling: Upgraditis Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: this is a really reluctant sale, but I’ve got to pay for the new amp so I have no choice. This integrated amplifier changed my perception of what high end audio can deliver. Incredibly musical with power that seems to transcend its 60 watts per channel. There are so many great reviews of this unit, I’ll leave anyone interested to scan the internet. Powering my ProAc Response D2’s was a match made in heaven, it has taken something far more expensive to beat that experience. A couple of things to consider: I am the second owner so I don’t know the amps history I don’t have a remote but I found that a third party remote I use for my CD-Player has the same codes as the Ayre I don’t have the original box or documentation but the amp will be securely packed The marks on the top left of the front fascia and rear left visible in the images are marks from tape that was on the amp when I bought it, which I haven’t attempted to clean The grille on the right side of the amp is slightly depressed (not sure why) but is solidly attached. Dont hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  20. Item: Elektra PNYX Pre-Amp Location: Bathurst Price: $2600, now $2300 (I won’t go lower) postage at buyers expense. Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraditis Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this unit last year from Bill Mclean and it has been a revelation. It is a great pre amp at least as good as the Audible Illusion 3A that I have owned in the past. I used it with an Ayre V-3 power amp (also for sale) and it was an awesome combination. But as always happens, I heard a system that was a small but noticeable improvement over that combination, albeit at a significant price hike, so therefore I need to sell. I have cut and pasted the information below from a previous advertisement and there are plenty of reviews out there on various forums. I have the original box, and the unit is supplied with two power cables (one with the ground lifted) and remote. Please note this unit does not have the optional phono stage. The pictures in this advertisement are of the unit being sold. dont hesitate to contact me for additional information. Introduction: The Elektra Pnyx Preamplifier is the product of extensive research and verification through rigorous listening tests. The areas it excels in are: Power Supply: With all audio products the power supply is a significant contributor to the success or failure of sound quality. With valves circuits this is even more so than anywhere else. With both our heater and anode power supplies we use discrete regulators. With our anode supply we achieve low noise (-100dBV) which is almost an 10 times better than other existing supplies. Its output impedance is 20 milliohm across the entire audio band. two such power supplies are used one for the left channel and one for the right. Operating Circuit: With the signal path of our circuit we opted for DC coupling this is a truly unique feature because it eliminates capacitors and other coupling elements in the signal path which can cause distortions and resonances, this results in better sound quality. Balanced Operation: To top it all off our valve circuit is balanced , this has two major benefits , firstly it is inherently lower in distortion than unbalanced circuits and secondly it allows you to transmit audio signals both on the printed circuit board or between two pieces of equipment with greater immunity to interference which degrades sound quality. No transformer is used in the signal path. Construction: The Elektra preamplifier is painstakingly hand built using audiophile grade parts selected for their sonic excellence reliability and stability. Listening Tests: This preamplifier provides stellar audio performance in terms of balance of sound, clarity and fine detail resolution , dynamics and imaging. But we are not alone in our opinion here is what customers say about our product. "When Arthur asked me to say a few words about his valve pre-amp, I was a little apprehensive. This happens to be a seriously good pre-amp with a RRP of $3,900. At this price it is a steal, any serious competition it has is going to be much more expensive. I am concerned that if too many good things are said about this pre-amp the price might go up. For those who love valves, you must hear this pre-amp. It is very clean, dynamic, smooth and rich. While there are plenty of pre-amps out there that have some of these attributes, very few have them all. For those who don't like valves, you must hear this pre-amp. If you think valves are too warm, slow or euphonic, have a listen to the Elektra; it will change your mind. The Elektra pre-amp has the speed and dynamics you would expect from a top transistor pre-amp with the richness and smoothness you only seem to get from valve pre-amps. This pre-amp really has that elusive live music sound quality. The fact that I use the Elektra pre-amp with our flagship Paragon speakers at our A1 Audio showroom says it all " Colin Whatmough "Excellence in tonality is what sets apart the Elektra Reference pre-amplifier from the rest. Performance without compromise, robust design and outstanding clarity, delivers the sound that I am seeking during mastering each and every time."

  22. Item: NVA Cubix isobaric loudspeakers Location: Melbourne Price: $1200 Item Condition: Excellent, All original and functioning perfectly Reason for selling: Surplus to requirements Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These speakers are superb, quirky and very rare in Australia. If you go to the hifi subjectivist forum in the UK you can read hundreds of posts about how amazing they are and all the nitty gritty on how they are made and such. They are one of those amazing quirky English brands that has quite a cult following; and for good reason. The gear sounds wonderful. The Cubix speakers i have have a massive sound from a comparatively compact box. The bass goes down to the 20's thanks to two upward firing isobaric loaded 8 inch bass drivers per cabinet and wall loading. Each cabinet also has a forward firing tweeter and a side firing tweeter. So its four drivers per enclosure. They are designed to be placed near a rear wall for best sound and with the wall loading and dual 8 inch drivers and super dead enclosures (knuckle test will produce sore knuckles due to very thick cabinets and steel lining) they sound effortless, direct and vivid. Like a lot of great British gear they have superb PRAT (pace, rhythm and timing) and with all the drivers they sound very low distortion. With the upward firing main drivers and front and side firing tweeters they have a very large enveloping soundstage. If you check out the forums the people who own these seem to be pretty fanatical about them and some very expensive speakers have been sold with people using these. The new version of these speakers is 3500 British pounds (not including the steel stands). Ive included the super heavy steel (sand fillable) stands they were originally purchased with). They are bi-wirable and bi-ampable. They use a minimal crossover. These speakers though modest in size are very heavy. Local pickup is preferred. From Richard Dunn of NVA on the Cubix speaker (were the top of the range model with the two tweeters for even power response and dispersion): " So now we come to the other trick up the sleeve of the Cubes - directionality. Differing frequencies have differing dispersion patterns. The lower the frequency the more omni directional is the polar response, and the higher the frequency the more directional. So our trick is to mount the driver upward firing as the higher it gets in frequency the less it is heard from the listening position and the more its output just contributes to the acoustic ambience of the music (which is peaky anyway due to room nodes). We then use a relatively wide band tweeter which is front firing and directional to provide the frequency range beyond the point the bass / mid driver is naturally (due to doping) and acoustically (due to directionality) rolling off. This makes the only crossover components in the whole speaker necessary as a series protection capacitor to gently roll off the tweeter down to low mid and LF frequencies which would overload and distort (and potentially damage) the small driver, and a padding resistor as the upward driver loses some of the efficiency of output at MF and LF, so if left that way the tweeter would dominate, so it needs taming a little. The other advantage of the upward firing driver is that it means it is mechanically in phase with its coupling to the listening room, the speaker stand. This stops any rocking motion which induces mf and hf phase problems and a large (90degree) LF phase change as with normal front firing speakers in very low frequency notes. The other bonus of the LF driver position means you get an extra LF natural mechanical extension of the bass frequency so no extra LF driver or extra bass boom box is required. The other problem / consideration is what is this all enclosed in and how that enclosure functions. In this situation in reality you are looking at a small box (speaker) creating sound within a much larger box (the room). Now this is a whole new subject in terms of materials, shape and size, better left to another post." Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  24. Item: Metrum Acoustics Pavane (level 1) Location: Perth Price: $3500 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too many DACs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Preference will be given to local sale as I prefer buyers to know exactly what they are purchasing and have the opportunity to test.

  25.

I'm selling all the gears that I've been collecting over the year. This amp is used in my old study room for occasional music playback.
