  1. Further information: To all the Naim Fanboys out there I get it 🙂 There is an attention to detail and feel of quality in this amp which is special. Everything is designed purposefully with all knobs feeling silky smooth, connectors are all hand wired and it weighs a ton!!. The sound floor is amazingly low with music coming from a jet black canvas right up there with the Bryston B135. It has an amazing ability to reveal subtle details like the tapping of Birdy's piano pedals or the muted breathing of Michael McDonald. You hear things in records you didn't know existed. But it also has a remarkable ability to not sound analytical despite the detail retrieval something the Devialet 120 could not. Bass is strong and tight, mid range smooth and non fatiguing. it has a wonderful sense of rhythm and pace. It bettered my Roksan Caspian M2 which is a master in this regard. There is plenty of current on tap too, it had no trouble driving my PMCs 23s to party levels and would be a great match for hard to drive speakers like Dynaudios. It matches the moon 340ix for control despite the moon being rated significantly higher. Unit is is excellent condition with original box and remote it was one of the later models produced in the series, I purchased it of a fellow SNA'r to demo in my system as I'm cycling through a few integrates at the moment. I replaced it with a moon 340IX and it was a toss up which one I kept but I've decided to keep the moon only because it has the built in DAC but for SQ I actually really like the Naim sound and can see why they have a cult following. I've priced this very competitively so price is firm as any lower then this and I will sell the Moon instead. Any questions just ask happy to post at buyers or pick-up also available Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Current equivalent EVO100 selling for $3400 I have had this amp for about 4 years, the current tubes have around 400-450 hours of use.

Tubes included are Sylvania SV6L6GC, JAN 2 x 5814 and Primaluna 2 x 12AX7 Has Adaptive Auto Biasing, and you can use 6550, KT90, EL-34, KT77, 6CA7, 6L6GC, KT66, 7581, EL37, and any of their equivalent power tubes. Hand made point to point wiring. Lots of reviews online. Shipping at cost and buyers risk, pickup preferred by mutual agreement. If picked up I will add a new set of tubes and a cover for the amp, value about $250+. Photos: JJ
  3. Further information: Priced reduced from $2,800 to $2,600 For sale is my beloved Plinius 9200 in absolute mint condition. It was purchased new by me in 2011 and have been sparingly used especially in the last few years as a second system and has never failed to impress. Had every intention to continue keeping this - until a recent decision to upgrade to active speakers means it's time to consolidate my hifi system. Also comes with original double boxes, remote control, final test cert, & even the plinius white gloves. This is a stunning amp with plenty of power, finesse and dynamics and has a really nice phono stage. It has a power rating of over 200 watts per channel into 8 ohms. Per Plinius the 9200 operates in high bias class A/B however it has been designed to preserve as much of the class A sound as possible. It's well built like a tank and to last. Any questions please don't hesitate to reach out.

Vocals are staging are among the best I've heard in my system, bass is tight and melodic 2nd owner purchased from another SNAr excellent condition no marks have original remote, Manuals and box happy to negotiate for a quick sale Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  5. Further information: have been using this as my B amp as I’ve been cycling through a few much higher priced intergrateds. It actually won out on a few of them due to its thoroughly entertaining sound and I regularly came back to it it has tube like qualities and and a well rounded sound with plenty of drive and rhythm . I paired it with a pair of PMC 23s as per what hifi’s recommendation and it offers excellent synergy and plenty of current to drive them to house party levels. Excellent reviews online and fantastic build quality includes learning remote and box can ship Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  7. Item: Vincent Audio SV237. Black. Location: Melbourne Price: 1300 dollarydoos. Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Raising capital for domestic transducer development. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased 2nd hand last year, this amp has seen very little use. I have the original box, but its super heavy and (at this stage) would prefer not to post. The amp is in perfect working order and buyers can demo with my Focals.

  8. Item: Yamaha A-S1000 Integrated Amplifier (Black) Location: Melbourne (Local pickup only, I don't have the box). Price: $700 (was $850). Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Clearing out the 2nd system Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Specifications are available on Yamaha's site - https://au.yamaha.com/en/products/audio_visual/hifi/a-s1000/index.html At 105W in to 8Ohm (220W into 2Ohm) this has no trouble driving Harbeths and PMC's. Note, I'm not the first owner (I purchased through a local (Melb) seller on SNA about 12-18 months ago). I'm currently running Harbeth Compact 7ES-3 with this amplifier, and it really is a great match. The amplifier has MM and MC phono stage, currently using a Rega Planar 3 (MM) very nicely. I don't have the original remote, but use a universal Logitec to good effect, which I'll include in the bundle if the buyer wants it (nothing fancy, does the job - volume, input selection etc). There is one minor dint along the top faceplate (see 1st photo, above the Balance knob). One of the great features is the Direct Input, which allows you to run a pre-amp into it (I'm using a RME DAC to good effect). Photos:

Item: Cayin CS-88A Integrated Valve Amplifier Location: Central Coast NSW Price: $2,750 ono Item Condition: Mint, As New Reason for selling: Upgrading/Change of direction Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT, Paypal + 2.6%, COD Only Extra Info: I have owned this amp since July this year. Originally purchased in preparation for a setup with Klipsch Cornwall III speakers, however I went a different route and ultimately purchased Revel M106’s. While this is an exceptional sounding valve amplifier it is not really matched well with the Revel’s and I will be upgrading to a Benchmark system. The build quality is exceptional, regardless of price. Selling to help fund the upgrade. This amp is in mint as-new condition, with no more that 5 hours use on it total. I have all of the original packaging and accessories. 19 months warranty remaining. Retails for $3,499. Selling $2,750 ono Happy to post if buyer pays postage, but realize its a very heavy item.

  10. Item: Cyrus 7SE integrated amplifier Location: VIC, Hawthorn Price: $200 Item Condition: After finally upgrading I’m looking to find a new home for my much loved Cyrus 7SE integrated amp. This is a 60W per channel into 8 and 74W into 4 ohms amp. I’m its 2nd owner and have had it for ~17 years during which time it has performed admirably. Always kept in a pet and smoke free environment. Selling as-is: I’ve noticed recently that occasionally the volume control was getting a little inconsistent – not that often, but a turn/click might not register and you have to turn it again. It could use some maintenance & TLC by someone that knows how. Even so, it retains all the PRAT and rhythmic ability that the older Cyrus gear has been known for. Includes power cable, cyrus right-angled speaker connectors, AND remote! No boxes / manuals. Reason for selling: No longer in use, upgraded. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Cyrus don’t have a page specifically for the Special Edition, but I think the specs were the same. https://www.cyrusaudio.com/support/other-resources/legacy-products/integrated-amplifiers/cyrus-7/ Electrical Line inputs – 5 Line + 2 Tape Outputs – Bi-wire Loudspeakers, Tape-out, Preamp-out, Headphone Power Supply – 180VA Toroidal transformer with 5 regulated rails External – Highly regulated PSX-R upgradeable Communications – MC-BUS System BUS Remote Control – Supplied with Cyrus Amp/CD/tuner system remote control Specifications Continuous Power – 60W/CH (both driven into 8 Ohms) 74W/CH (both driven into 4 Ohms) With PSX-R – 60W/CH (both driven into 8 Ohms) 90W/CH (both driven into 4 Ohms) Current – 30 Amps peak to peak Distortion – 0.003%, 1kHz (into 8 Ohms) 0.005%, 1kHz (into 4 Ohms) Frequency Response – -3 dB, 1Hz and 80kHz Damping Factor – 80 Sensitivity – (50W) Line: 200mV Input impedance – 50kOhm (RCA).

  11. So, here we are again with the third thread (representing the third listening room) since this obsession began back in mid 2010 (or possibly early 2011, I'd need a good psychologist to be sure). Pics of the new listening room will arrive in good time, a new camera is on the way, as will pics of the first amp to grace the new room, until then I'm afraid I'll just have to copy and paste from the good old internet. This is Darren69's Peachtree Nova, the older model with the mosfet modules (prior to the class D modules and the power increase). It is listed in the manual as 80wpc into 6 Ohms so, in my mind, it is probably about 60wpc into 8 Ohms. It also has the option of a tube preamp stage (that can be switched on and off via the remote) and a built in 24/96 DAC so it scores very well in the value for money stakes. As I've been discovering over the last few weeks it is a very easy amp to like, that built in DAC has been in use for all my tv and movie viewing and has done a sterling job. It must be well integrated with the preamp stage because I have been unable to pick the difference between it and the Halcro's built in DAC, so just because it's rated at a 'crappy' 24/96 doesn't mean that it doesn't sound good. I'm also a fan of the Nova's look, that wood veneer looks very cool and the fact that it's curved somehow makes it work even better. IMO the veneer on the new PS Audio Sprout looks very "80's station wagon fake" by comparison. For those keeping track this is Integrated amp number #62 (at least, I'm pretty sure it is, I actually thought I was up to #63 at one stage... oh well, somewhere in the low 60's, so let's just call it #62 and leave it at that). The Peachtree was fed from a Halcro EC800 cd player via Aurealis R1 interconnects to the Nova and then through Redgum Expressive Line speaker cable to my Lenehan/ETI S2R speakers. And now that the hardware stuff is out of the way let's get down to the important stuff. Highs: Open, airy and spacious and sort of 'happy', xylophone and triangle sound a little bit sweet and a little bit luscious without going far enough to be called rich. I love the top end of the Nova, no glare, no hardness, never harsh or grainy. I've given it a 7.5. Mids: Well separated, natural and pleasingly rhythmic, light acoustic music is beautifully rendered as is jazz and opera (even though I don't usually go there). The mids and highs are given center stage and the bass is generally kept under tight control and used to back hem up and reinforce them. Vocals are also very good, but I'm getting ahead of myself there. 7.5 Bass: Well controlled and forced into second place behind the mids and highs, excellent control and presence but not enough for a bass head. It doesn't go as deep as it could but I believe this is deliberate as if it did then it would likely interfere with the treble. So, I'm giving it an 8.0 for quality and a 6.5 for amount and depth, so that averages at 7.25. It could use a little more impact as well but again that would cause issues for the top end. Vocals: Natural and just a little breathy and rich and just a bit sweetly relaxed, an 8.0 for both male and female vocals. An excellent vocal performance, very enjoyable. Soundstaging is hard to judge, it took me several months to get used to the new room the last time so I imagine it will take quite a while this time as well. It did seem to be pretty capable, it does the job and doesn't do anything wrong so I'll give it the benefit of any doubt with a 7.0 Overall performance Integration: The treble is where it's at with the Peachtree Nova, the bass is good too but the treble really shines. The only thing it is lacking is a little impact and dynamicism but I suspect that is deliberate, you wouldn't want those to get in the way of the vocals or the rest of the mid range. An excellent amp for slower styles and still a good one for rock. A very easy amp to live with. Ability to Emote: With slower styles, folkish rock and ballads it scores 7.5 but it drops to a flat 7.0 on harder tracks so I'll average that to a 7.25. Electric Guitar Test: As with many amps that are very well controlled it could not score above a 7.0, it just isn't edgy or rebellious enough. 80's Rock Test: Again good, 7.0 but not great, as with the electric guitar test it does well enough but it just doesn't have the right personality to fit well with 80's rock. And a few random observations: The top end has a few characteristics that remind me of the Burson PI-160, it doesn't sound the same but it does have similar strengths with those nice airy highs. The mid range has maybe half of the rhythmic energy of the NAKSA 80, it sounds nice but it isn't nearly as addictive as the NAKSA was. The Nova was never forward in its presentation and not generally recessed either, it was slightly withdrawn on occasion. Considering the Nova sounds this good and has the added extras of an inbuilt DAC and a remote control I'd have to call it excellent value for money. And I'll add a few of my own pics in midweek. Edit: Pics added.

  15. Item: Luxman L-509U Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: 5800 Item Condition: as new Reason for selling: need money Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am one only owner. Bought new for over $8000 in 2012 The amp has never been repaired, works very well. No issues, can give a week warranty. The unit has never been loud more then 9am because I live in a flat and I like my neighbors. Winner of SoundStage's Reviewer's Choice Award (February 2009) "The L-509u was one dead-quiet integrated amp with an ultra-low noise floor, resulting in the blackest of backgrounds from which the music would emerge in solid, focused, three-dimensional images. Additionally, the L-509u was tonally neutral, and did not favor one end of the frequency spectrum over another; instead its sonic signature was geared toward delivering the least-colored, most musically natural performance, regardless of the type of music." "What impressed me most, however, was the L-509u’s control of the bass." "Subterranean? Without a doubt." Click here to be redirected to the SoundStage review. The L-509u features the new high quality electronic selector switch, which is the heart of the C-1000f pre-amp (one of Luxman’s 80th anniversary commemoration models). The sound quality deterioration using the new electronic input switch is now minimal, while channel separation and crosstalk efficiency were raised substantially in comparison with the previous L-550A / L-590A / L-507 /L-509SE. In addition the illuminated position indicator around the input selector knob, makes it much easier to view the selected position even from afar. The integrated amplifier also benefits from the ALPS volume control used in the CL-88 vacuum tube preamplifier. A massive solid-brass, four gang potentiometer. The amplifier section has not been ignored either; noise and distortion has been kept to a minimum with the introduction of ODNF version 2.2. The deep, rich, wonderfully textured tone is available here in Luxman’s most powerful integrated amplifier. No compromises made for sound quality; designed for the musical purist. This is Luxman’s ultimate integrated amplifier. * Equipped with ODNF version 2.2 for minimal noise and distortion. * Solid brass, four gang attenuator from the CL-88 tube preamp. * Electronic input selector, trickle down technology from the flagship C-1000f. * Relay power source with large storage capacity. * One pair of RCA inputs with Luxman's eddy current defeating technology, * Peel Coat PCB with gold plated traces. * Power Output Display Meter in dB * Switch to split the preamp from the power amp. * High quality phono stage. * Two pairs of balanced inputs. * Custom parts designed by LUXMAN, even the paint used on the resistors to denote the value has been carefully chosen after many hours of comparitive listening. The volume control on the L-509u is a solid brass, four gang ALPs potentiometer, its too heavy to be motorised, hence the lack of a remote control, it does however provide a linear attentuation & gain throughout the range, holding both channels perfectly in balance even at low amplitude. The tone controls might seem like an anachronism in this day and age of minimalism, but they can be remarkably effective in bring to life a less than perfect music collection. We all have music gems in our collection that are sonicly challenging. A lot of the 1980's CDs are quite harsh sounding and the digital glare can be quite fatiguing. Reduce the treble slightly and while the harsh CD is not going to suddenly sound like a reference recording, at least it will now be perfectly listenable. Sit back relax, enjoy the music & forgot about the HiFi. When you want to bypass the tone controls, just engage the Line Straight switch. Printed Circuit Boards normally have a green coat (dye) that can be printed upon, so the manufacturer knows where to place the copper traces and where to insert the resistors & capacitors. LUXMAN's designers don't like the sound of the green dye, so instead they print onto a plastic peel coat and remove it once the traces and mounting holes are in place. Then the copper traces are gold plated to reduce resistance across the circuit. In the photo below you will notice that Peel Coat circuit boards are an off-white color. It’s this fanatical attention to detail that delivers such superior sound quality. The on board phono stage is not an after thought on any of the Luxman integrated amplifiers, rather a well executed pre-preamplifer. The MC input has 55dB of gain (thats a multiplication of 550x) and is suitable for medium to high output MC cartridges, approx .7mV. While the MM input has 35dB of gain. Extensive listening was applied to the high purity, oxygen free copper (OFC) cables which are used to transmit the signal throughout the amplifier. These cables have a minimal audible signature and minimal electrical effect on the audio waveform. Linear wide bandwidth frequency response is achieved by the low measured values of both inductance and capacitance. The result, the cables do not color the sound, but pass it through, quickly. There is a high quality headphone amplifier, accessible from the front panel. The headphone output is taken from the speaker output,, assuring you of the highest fidelity. LUXMAN did not cut corners in the L-509u; notice lots of custom solid copper parts including screws & fasteners & mounting plates. Not to mention the gold plated peel coat circuit boards. This is one channel complete with heat sink. Here is a clever device found on the back of every Luxman powered product. You press the button and it will check the phase of the electricity it is receiving. If the AC outlet in the wall is incorrectly wired, meaning the live and neutral are swapped, a red LED will turn on to warn you.

  16. Item: NAD C 375BEE Integrated Amplifier including OPTIONAL DAC and Phono stage - Does not include C 275BEE power amp in pic, see separately listed sale Location: Williamstown VIC 3016 Price: $999 Now $900 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: I'm so impressed that I'm looking to move up to the NAD Master Series Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Update no other c375 sold on StereoNet has had the phono card and dac card installed - you’re getting a whole digital/phono integrated solution in one. Great value for this level of sound quality, power and convenience! What can I say to express how good this amp is? Probably that I am so impressed I am looking at buying into the NAD Master Series once I sell this amp. Just to give you an idea of how good these amps are and how impressed I am, my other amps are Audio Research. This integrated has lots of trickle down technology from the NAD Masters Series M3 Amplifier. These include application of Bjørn Erik Edvardsen’s Distortion Canceling Circuit in the output stage and BEE Clamp in the power supply, with distortion and noise reduced down to unprecedented levels. Distortion and frequency response figures are very impressive – midband distortion staying in the region of 0.001 per cent even at 200 watts output. That's not a trivial thing to achieve! I need to have Solid State amps to use when a: I feel like a change b: I'm listening but I'm working or being distracted and I don't want my valve amps going for nothing c : I need some serious power! https://nadelectronics.com/product/c-375bee-integrated-amplifier/ Ignore what some of the reviews on here and around the net say, this amp is refined, powerful and musical. (Seriously, the What HiFi reviewer must've been smoking something). BUT to get quality out of this amplifier you need to get rid of the standard metal jumpers between the pre-power sections of this amp and use some decent interconnects. THEN you really get to hear this amp... I don't know why anyone or any reviewer would bother with the standard jumpers, they really downgrade the sound and hurt the reviews. This amp really responds to having high quality and revealing interconnects used with it, especially as the link between the pre-power sections. I used some silver/copper Aurealis cables as the jumper cables and the sound was superb (they're not expensive at all). Putting better cables in place of them only improves things. Inside this amp its full of high quality components and also a couple of completely enclosed 'class A gain modules', which are evidently NAD's answer to the ubiquitous op-amp. And this amp has power to spare, and can drive loads down to 2ohms without breaking a sweat. The official figures are: 250W, 410W, 600W IHF Dynamic power into 8, 4 and 2 Ohms, respectively. But in the real world the 8ohm power is closer to 200 watts according to various reviews online. Reviews: From Stereophile: "The 150Wpc C 375BEE offers five line-level outputs, two sets of preamp outputs, a front-panel minijack for portable music players, a built-in headphone amp, and an optional phono stage. Like models in NAD’s Masters Series, the C 375BEE uses PowerDrive technology to maximize the dynamic power sent to the speakers. ...the C 375BEE’s overall sound was tight, dynamic, and fast, with crystalline highs and well-extended bass. “A competition crusher,” concluded Sam. Though he admits the NAD belongs in Class B, he’d choose it over many of the amplifiers in Class A. “So good, for so little money, that few are willing to believe it. Are you, JA?” he asks. (Vol.32 No.10) From TechRadar: "Faced with a powerhouse like this, there's a strong temptation to load up a noisy disc at the outset, wind the volume control up high and settle back for some good old aural abuse. We did exactly that, but were rather taken aback by the results. We've used high-powered NAD amps before and always found them enjoyable, if not always well controlled or revealing at high power. This one breaks that tradition, for it offers some of the best control we've heard at anything like the price. We weren't exactly using the world's easiest speakers, either. The Bowers and Wilkins 803S is a fairly tricky load and needs a firm hand to keep the bass precise, but the 375Bee proves more than ready for the challenge. even when delivering peaks close to the 200 watts threshold (which was louder then we were comfortable with) there was no sense of strain, nor of the shift of focus that often occurs when amps start to run out of puff – loud bass making the midrange and treble wilt, and vice-versa. As a result, we spent a lot of time revelling in the classy combination of power and control which the amplifier offers. As we've mentioned before in these pages, classical music tends to have wider dynamics than most other styles and hence benefits most from high power output, and indeed we found ready use for the power in uncompressed symphony orchestra recordings. Bass drum and timpani rarely sound so vivid! There is also a lot to admire and enjoy at more modest volumes. Another break with early high-power NAD amps is in the high degree of neutrality across the midrange. Previously, we've had some limitations about the degree of naturalness in voices, but on this occasion we find it very hard to pick fault in this area. This is accompanied by some excellent resolution of detail, making it very easy to separate the different lines within a multi-layered piece of music. As usual, stereo imaging follows where detail leads, and although we have heard just a shade more image depth (from amps costing considerably more than a grand, mind you) we have hardly heard better imaging stability. In a well-recorded oratorio recording, for instance, we found the placement of the voices absolutely consistent irrespective of the accompaniment behind them. An excellent result. By this point, you're probably waiting for the big 'but'. Frankly, there isn't one." Not only does this amp sound refined, musical and powerful, it is just so adaptable and convenient. Full remote control, which even controls switching between speaker a and speaker b. Minijack for portable music players and headphone socket on the front of the amp. TWO tape inputs/outputs. For when you can never have enough power: TWO pre outputs, one with a level control to allow exact matching with an external power amp, if you want to bi amp! (see my other ad for the matching NAD power amp!!!) The amp can be bridged if you really need 500 watts or so of output, in the company of a matching 275 power amp similarly connected! ALSO INCLUDED in the price is the PP375 phono module and the MDC DAC USB Digital Analogue Converter. Every other sale of this amp on StereoNET in the past generally is missing these optional extras, but you get them here, which just ups the convenience. You don't need extra cables, interconnects, power supplies etc - everything is built in so this amp can also be the musical hub of a really high quality setup. Just plug in your streamer or turntable, put some suitably revealing and high quality speakers on these amps, sit back and try wiping the grin off your face. Comes with the manual, box, remote, original crap jumpers, some reasonable cable jumpers (which I dont use as they dont do the amp justice). This amp will drive just about any speakers you can throw at it, and do so while playing music in a gloriously large fashion. If this amp isnt enough for you, add the matching C275BEE power amp for an incredibly powerful and musical combination... I'm sure I can do a special price for anyone who buys both! One final note - I suspect some early production run of this amp was not up to the usual NAD build standard and there were some reliability issues. I haven't had any problems at all, so I suspect my amplifier is from a later production run. I've played this amp at all volumes, left it on continuously (its better for the amp as you're not constantly surging power into the amp on startup and temperature remains stable), and basically enjoyed the hell out of it, and it hasn't skipped a beat, shut down, gone into soft clipping mode, or done anything but play music reliably. I've had book shelf speakers, different floorstanders on it and my Monitor Audio PL300ii speakers, single speaker cables, bi-wired etc, and never an issue. I prefer pickup - but can send by courier if you are really keen Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  17. Item: Analogue Domain Isis M75D MK2 Reference Integrated Amplifier Location: Perth Price: $22,000 ono (please feel free to make offers - I want to move this along) RRP is approx 40k AUD with Australia tax added. Item Condition: Excellent, barely run in. Reason for selling: Running dual monoblocs from a single source now Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: When I had a variety of inputs, Turntable, CD player, DAC, etc this was a killer solution - reference sound in a compact (albeit quite weighty) integrated amp. I am now in a position where I run everything through a single DAC and am running that straight into a pair of monoblocks so this beauty has to go. In short this is one of the best way to get Analog Domain sound for less than $100,000. Review here: https://www.monoandstereo.com/2017/04/analog-domain-m75d-mkii-integrated.html Photos:

  21. Item: Naim Nait 5Si Location: Mirboo North VIC 3871 Price: Sold on gumtree Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: No Longer Required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal friends family, COD Only, EFT Extra Info: I purchased this current model Naim Nait 5si the other week as I was thinking about downgrading from my Naim Nac82/Teddy Dual Cap/Nap250 system to something more simple and compact, and it does sounds really very neat, but it I have already re-installed my 82/250, as it is no surprise that, as good as the Nait 5si is, it is no competitor to my 82/250, and these are now back in my system driving my Harbeth SHL5's. Maybe I was being a little foolish in the first place but I was keen to give it a try. The Nait 5si retails new for $2250 so this represents an absolute steal, and my loss will be someone's gain. I purchased this privately but even the store demo models are selling for around $1795 (if you can get one). As you would expect the unit is in excellent used condition, complete with box, original packaging, instructions and a rather nice Narcom remote. Serial number corresponds to manufacture year 2016. Audition is most welcomed as is cash on collection, or I will ship within AU only by Australia Post, Express Insured, which I expect to be circa $65, but if its less than this then I will refund you the difference, if it is more then I will stand the additional cost. I am 2 hours SE of Melbourne and might be able to deliver into Melb (after payment) There are plenty of reviews for this amp so I won't get into detail here, other than to say it has the typical Naim pace rhythm and timing with great detail. The 5si is 60w per channel and should drive most speakers with relative ease. Photos: Actual photos as below

  23. Item: Bryston B135 SST² Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $4,299 Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Interested in trying something new Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I'm considering selling this to try something different. Putting feelers out there to gauge interest. The unit is absolutely mint, black finish, and comes with the optional remote control (which lists for $699 alone!). It was purchased new by me in May 2015. The amplifier retails for $7k new so this is a bargain. I still have all the packaging so COULD ship, but would prefer local pickup if possible. I'm be interested in a trade for a NAIM Supernait 2, or one of the NAIM Uniti Novas, but that's about all. Some info Brochure is here: http://www.bryston.com/PDF/brochures/B135_BROCHURE.pdf 135W into 8 Ohms (180W into 4 Ohms) Over 30,000 MFD of filter capacitance per channel Three ultra-low-noise power transformers Separate ground paths for Digital and Analog Gold plated switch, contacts, and connectors Pre-out/main in connectors Computer modelled heat-sink. Convection cooled and housed in a fully aluminium chassis Headphone jack 20 year warranty (16 years to go!) This is an incredible amplifier, with a low noise floor and pitch black background. It excels in bringing out detail in recordings without (somehow!) highighting flaws in production.

  25. Item: Yamaha A-S3000 Integrated Amplifier Price Range: Depends on warranty Item Condition: Used or Manufacture Refurbished Extra Info: Must be Silver and a 240V model The new C-5000 & M-5000 will soon be released, so I'm hoping someone may want to upgrade. If interested, I have an A-S1000 in silver with both light and dark wood sides, original packaging, which has had very little use.
