Item: Handmade class A valve preamp. Location: Adelaide Price: $395 (plus postage) Item Condition: Good used Reason for selling: Can't use it in my current setup Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Bank Deposit Extra Info: This is a simple handmade preamp I purchased from the United States via another audio forum a couple of years back. Delta Electronics (at least the arm of the business making valve amps) is no more than an elderly gent called George who as you can see by the top plate, lives in Florida. I got it cheap due to the fact that it wasn't working properly. I had a friend of mine take a look at it though and he promptly repaired it. Apparently there were a couple of components that were not rated high enough and they were overheating, causing failure. However, these have been replaced with correctly rated parts and it's all working 100% now. Has been for a couple of years. I was using it in my office setup, but I recently moved into a more open plan arrangement. I can't really listen to my system now so need to sell this and purchase something with a head amp built in. It sounds great. The guy I got it from seemed to think the gain was quite low, but I found just the opposite. I could only really use it with the volume pots set way down low! Has left and right volume potentiometers, uses four 7695 valves (new Sylvania's in it at present) solid timber chassis, chunky milled aluminium knurled volume knobs and blood red painted metal top and bottom plates. Has single input and output. NOTE: It requires 110 volts, so you will need a stepdown transformer to use it. As you can see by the images it uses point to point wiring throughout. If you're after a simple retro styled class A valve pre, then look no further. I'm happy to post interstate if required. Pictures:
Item: Trafomatic Premise Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $3500 ono. Item Condition: Near Mint Reason for selling: Putting up my WLM Diva's for sale, the Premise is the perfect partner. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The Premise is a fantastic amp. The WLM Diva/Trafomatic Premise is the best speaker/amp combo I have ever had in my system. I need to sell a pair of speakers and since I haven't yet sold my wilson benesch's I have put my Diva's up for sale. If they sell and I am left with the W.B then I will need a more appropriate amp match. Here is what our own John Darko had to say about the Premise: "With his Kaivalya monos receiving raves across the board, Sasa Cokic distilled their essence into a gloss-white-lacquered push-pull integrated. The Premise twirls with EL84 tubes; this means super-fast, super clean reproduction without the butterfat that can burden lesser EL34 designs. Musical layering is another standount. Cleverly, Cokic has designed the Premise so that it can be used as a power amplifier and triode/ultra-linear modes are top-plate switchable to suit mood and musical flavour. The former brings a shade more romance, but the delta is sufficiently subtle that you wonâ€™t spend all day yo-yo-ing between the two. A glorious and grandiose amplifier that once again proves that bang-for-buck can still be found at the high-end. Donâ€™t be misled: this might look like show-pony hi-fi but the Premise offers performance that youâ€™d be extremely hard-pushed to find for less money. You can show it off to your audiophile mates, it sounds sublime and your partner will be less likely to object to it as a lounge-room centerpiece. A modern classic." Had to argue with JD. Don't underestimate it, this is a high end amp that delivers high end performance. The Premise certainly does pull you into the music. This particular amp is in gloss black rather than the gloss white- just my personal preference. This unit does also come with the $250 optional output to run as a power amp if you want to add your favourite pre into the mix. The amp runs a minimum of 20 watts per channel. Comes with remote. The specs as taken from the Trafomatic website: Specifications: Class of operation: Push Pull class A Triode/ Ultralinerar mode â€¨Tubes complement: 8 x EL84, 2 x ECC81 â€¨Inputs: CD, Tuner, Aux â€¨Outputs: 4 , 8 ohms â€¨Input sensitivity: 0.85Vrms â€¨THD: 0.25% - 1W/1KHzâ€¨ Bandwidth: 10Hz (-1dB) - 50KHz (-3dB) â€¨S/N ratio: 88dB â€¨Input impedance: 100K â€¨Power consumption: 250VA â€¨Input voltage: 230V/50Hz (100-120-220-240V available on request) â€¨Size: 430 x 2900 x 1900mm â€¨Weight: 22kg As always, if you have any question regarding either the amp or its sonic abilities, please don't hesitate to ask. If someone out there is in the extremely fortunate position of being able to purchase both the Premise and my listed Wlm Diva's, we can certainly discuss a package price. I have all original packaging. A donation to SNA will be made upon sale of the amp. Pictures: not my best work, sorry about that: looks cool in the flesh, particularly with all those glowing bottles fired up.

(SGR CX4F speakers) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Only Extra Info: Bought from fellow SNAer (Eagle). Came paired with MW LS100 tube pre-amp. Iâ€™m keeping the LS100 to run the SGRs.
